About Doug

Born and raised in central Illinois, our family has been coming to the Islamorada, Florida Keys area for the past 14 years and have completely fallen in love with it. We recently took the plunge and bought this gorgeous home to enjoy with family and friends. We would be happy to talk to you about the 'must see' places to visit and dine while you are visiting the area.

Doug purchased this house in 2012

Why Doug chose Upper Florida Keys

Our home is located on the very southern part of Tavernier right next to Islamorada. The home has undergone a $400,000 renovation. It is beautifully furnished with Ethan Allen furniture and has lush tropical greenery throughout the property. The pocket doors across the front of the home completely open up to the upper outdoor veranda that runs the entire length of the home for that Florida Keys home feel. On the lower level by the pool and boat dock, there is an outdoor shower, fish fillet station and stairs that lead right into the ocean water. There is a large Weber stainless steel grill for cooking out.

What makes this house unique

You will love the beautiful ocean view and all there is to offer in the area such as great fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, water sports, shopping, local restaurants or just hanging out at the pool. We are close to the Tavernier Marina, Bud and Mary's Marina and Robbie's Marina. The Winne Dixie grocery store is a three minute drive away. Theater of the Sea and John Pennecamp State Park is nearby. There is nothing like the laid back atmosphere of the Keys. Relax at one of the many open air restaurants, have a cold drink a great meal and listen to live music while watching a spectacular sunset.

Beautiful home, well kept

  • 5 of 5

The home and pool were stunning. It's a little tricky to get in and out of the channel at low tide with a larger boat, we have a 25 ft center console, but it was def doable. Also trailer parking is sticky so might be worth your while to pay $125 to leave it at mangrove marina down the street for the week. Overall excellent home! Thanks for having us! Oh and the hammock chairs are amazing!

Great Location in Tavenier

  • 5 of 5

Nicely furnished pool home on canal with views of Atlantic Ocean & just minutes away with boat. Grounds tend to get covered with leaves due to tropical setting & winds. Pool needs to be maintained twice a week instead of one. Only negative of house for me is exterior tiled stairwell to main floor, can be hard for elderly & very slippery when wet. Saw one baby iguana during the entire week stay, is now my kids pet @ home, now 3' long head to tail. Public boat ramp less than 5 minutes away, room for boat trailer, but have to hand push trailer into gated driveway. nice quiet neighborhood with close proximity to shops. Owner out of state, but just a phone call away & very pleasant to deal with. Overall a very nice & well kept waterfront home, highly recommend.

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

Let me start by saying that house is absolutely beautiful and they have clearly put a lot of thought into all of the details. It was also spotlessly clean which is ore important than anything else. The pool was amazing as well- perfect temp to still swim even though the weather wasn't ideal during our stay.

A couple of issues we faced- the sofa bed cover was filthy and had a pair of dirty socks stuffed in it when we opened it. It is also important to note that there is NO ACCESS at all to the main house from the first floor/pool deck. This was an issue for us since that was where we planned for my 9 and 10 year old sons to sleep. The sofa bed is also awfully uncomfortable. My 10 year old couldn't even sleep on it, so we ended up short a bed for the 7 of us and my one son had to sleep on the sofa upstairs for the week, so if you plan to use the sofa bed, plan accordingly and bring something additional to put on top of the mattress.

Something else we didn't expect to see was the entire canal covered in a thick layer of seaweed. Clearly this is not something the homeowner can control, but it did make fishing from the dock difficult (which is something my boys spend hours doing) and getting out in the kayaks even more difficult since we had to push through it. Granted, this is not an issue if you're not planning on these particular types of activities.

All in all we had a wonderful stay with just a couple of minor hiccups. Another great week in the Keys!!

Owner's Response: Our housekeeping staff is usually very good at cleaning up after our guests and that is part of the reason we have received a 5-star rating from every responding guest that has stayed at our home. It seems that maybe the guests who stayed there prior to this family’s stay folded up the dirty sheets in the bed and the cleaning staff did not know that someone had slept in the bed. We have alerted the cleaning staff to check the sofa bed every time they clean our home to make sure dirty sheets are not folded up in the sofa bed. Most homes of this style throughout the Florida Keys have this type of floorplan where the lower level only is accessible to the upstairs via an outdoor stairway. There are times that the tide and winds will bring in seaweed. It is nothing that we can control, but it usually is not there long and is taken out by the tide and wind as well. We stay at our home five to six times per year and occasionally there has been the seaweed. This is something that happens when you have direct access to the ocean.

Perfect rental for a Keys vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful week in Tavernier in large part because of this house. The pool was perfect and sitting outside on the upstairs veranda every morning was a wonderful way to start the day. The house is as described and was a great place to relax for the week. There was plenty of space for our family and the beds were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in the Keys.

Immaculate home! Wonderful, relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We rented Doug's beautiful home for a week in March. We were a group of four-- my husband and I, my 14 year old daughter, and her friend. The house was perfect. We had plenty of space and privacy. Everything was beautifully maintained. My daughter had rejected a couple of other homes as being "too crusty", but she agreed to Doug's home, and it was even better than expected. Doug was excellent with communication and answered all of our questions in a very timely fashion. We loved the view from the veranda and spent many hours relaxing there. The girls enjoyed kayaking and fishing right from the dock out front. We took several long walks over to Harry Harris Park and all of us appreciated being able to step across to Chad's for a bite. We had an excellent week, and we were all sorry to come home. I would definitely rent this house again.

Fantastic waterfront home with boat slip

  • 5 of 5

House was everything advertised plus more. Attention to detail allowed us to enjoy our vacation because everything we needed was already furnished. Spic and span clean home with a heated pool and dock to park our boat. Instructions included great places to eat and visit. We definitely had a wonderful time and recommend this place!
