About Jo Wiles

We have been taking our vacations in The Florida Keys for many years. We love Islamorada so much that we decided to buy a property there! We hope you love the house and Anglers Reef as much as we do.

Jo Wiles purchased this house in 2012

Why Jo Wiles chose Upper Florida Keys

We bought this property in July 2012, having looked at various potential vacation homes in the islamorada area.

You will not find a place quite like Anglers Reef anywhere in Islamorada. It's beautiful wooden-cladded pastel colored houses within immaculately maintained grounds, set around an amazing swimming pool, overlooking a superb boat dock and views over the Atlantic Ocean to die for. Just minutes from local shops, bars and restaurants. Access to the ocean does not get any easier than at Anglers.

This is our ultimate choice of vacation destination, we hope it's yours too!

What makes this house unique

Privately owned, by us - 31' Boat Dock available, gated, safe community with beautifully landscaped garden. The views from the pool are priceless.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at this rental! Jo was so helpful in coordinating the visit and answering all of our questions; she also provided some useful resources for finding our way around the island and which companies are recommended for tours and excursions.

The gated community is very beautiful (palm trees, well kept homes, pool, sandy area with chairs, etc) and the place was great. It was so nice to have our own 'home' during the trip and great that the home is fairly new (beautiful floors, new appliances, etc). It was very clean and relaxing. In looking at some of the 'resorts' in Islamorada, I was so glad that we were in a nice place - a lot of the resorts labeled as such really aren't resorts and look more like run down motels.

For folks looking to get relax on the beach all day, the Keys are not really the place to do it (not much sand but surrounded by water!). That said there are a lot of activities in the area in terms of scuba, snorkeling, eco tours and a few others.

Comfortable, Clean, Fresh, Easy and Fair

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jo Wiles' house at 109 Angler's Reef was everything we hoped it would be and more. Not only is the house easy to find and access both by land and by water, it is thoroughly furnished with everything a family needs for a Keys vacation. The cabinets are stocked with all amenities and even labeled for ease. The AC works wonderfully. It was clean and the furnishings were updated. Jo Wiles was helpful in her recommendations of boat rental companies, charters and restaurants. The en suite bathrooms were a nice luxury for a large family. The lay out of the house makes for great use of space. We would definitely rent this house again.

Return to the Reef

Second stay at Anglers Reef, first at 109. We thoroughly enjoyed our three week stay. The home is nicely decorated, roomy and welcoming. Virtually everything is on hand. The property is well maintained and other guests were very friendly. I highly recommend this property.

Comfortable relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently completed our second vacation at Anglers Reef and remain extremely pleased with the home, property and seamless interaction with the owners. The home is just as advertised, very clean and comfortably furnished. All the kitchen amenities are provided to cook meals at home, if desired. Additional items include wine glasses, small coolers, washer/dryer, plenty of bath and pool towels, comfortable beds and a pleasing design. The property is beautifully landscaped with a wonderful pool area with an ocean view. Our nine-year old son had a great time at the pool and always had other children to play with. We appreciate the security provided by the gated community.

The location is within easy walking distance to Theater of the Sea and Windley Key State Park and a short 5-10 minute drive to shopping, restaurants and other attractions. We appreciate that the home is located just outside the busiest areas of Islamorada because it is quiet at night. Be aware that the key is less than 1/4 mile wide so there will be traffic noise at night. We completed a day trip to Key West leaving at 9:00 AM and returning by 9:00 PM that included the trolley, dinner at Bagatelle and the sunset at Mallory Square. Our new favorite Islamorada restaurant is Bumby's.

Reserving your stay is easy because Jo is a pleasure to deal with and is available by phone, text and email. Damage deposits are returned promptly. We have not had an issue that required contacting local management but we have no doubt that if an issue did arise, it would be addressed promptly. We are already looking forward to our next stay and highly recommend this property.

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Angler’s Reef was a great choice for our family vacation with two kids age 5 and 8. We spent a week here and enjoyed every minute of it. The house is very well equipped and maintained. The pool is fantastic (and warm) with an awesome view of the ocean. The property is gated and the grounds throughout are beautifully maintained. The beach areas are not for swimming but we loved the views and the sand. We found all kinds of fun things to do in the area including renting a boat, visiting Theater of the Sea, feeding the Tarpon at Robbie’s, and spending time on the beaches at Bahia-Honda State Park. We had some great meals out but most enjoyed relaxing at the end of our long days cooking dinner at home. The kitchen was great and there was a good gas grill on the back porch. Quick tip—The Winn-Dixie 10 minutes north is the best place to buy groceries. Pick-up a free discount card at the customer service counter when you walk in the door.

This was our first time doing a private rental and I was initially a little nervous about the process. I cannot say enough about how wonderful Jo (the owner) has been to work with. Her communication has been nothing short of fantastic from our first inquiry to follow up at the end of our stay. Our damage deposit was refunded promptly. We had a minor maintenance issue come up during our stay and honestly we could have gotten along just fine without a fix. I relayed the problem to Jo and she immediately put us in touch with the local property manager and they arranged to have a repair person come out the next day. The only downside I can think of is the proximity of this property to the highway; it is a bit noisy and left turns can be a challenge! The highway is obviously tough to avoid in the Florida Keys however and our overall experience was excellent. We will seriously consider renting this one again.
