Secluded and private on a canal

  • 5 of 5

Chuck and I had a great vacation. The cottage is clean, well equipped and so comfortable. Also very private. The dock is wonderful for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. We even had a few afternoons of catching fish but throwing them back. If your lucky you will get to see the manatee swim by. I did no cooking many restaurants close by, Lorellie is only a few feet away. You can see the best sunsets from there. This was the best place we have stayed in 15 years.

can't get any better

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying here for three winters and plan to return next year. This is the most beautiful place in Islamorada. Jackie and Tim are wonderful. The cottage is in a great location, walking distance to everything in the village, and biking distance to everything else.

Delightful Updated Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful cottage and yard! It brings one back to the ‘good old days’. Beautiful old gnarly trees and various vegetation ornament the yard. The 1940’s cottage has been updated, but maintains the feel of the cottages I grew up visiting in Florida. Jackie and Tim are wonderful to deal with, great communication, lovely people. The cottage was very clean and well stocked with hand/dishwasher/washer soaps, TP, and hand/bath/beach/kitchen towels. The bed and pillows are very comfortable. There were lovely touches throughout the cottage (pen and paper on the desk in the bedroom, Islamorada books/pamphlets in the living room). We enjoyed viewing the iguanas, woodpecker, raccoon, manatee, sea gulls and pelicans.

HOME Again

  • 5 of 5

Jackie and Tim

Tina and I wanted to once again thank you for another memorable stay at your wonderful property. You both are the ultimate host making sure we are settled in and updated on the local fare. The house and property gets better each year and once you stay you will never have a wandering eye for a change. The house is spotless with every detail addressed for comfort. The views of the sunsets from the dock will have to carry us thru until next year, along with the family of manatees who greet you each morning from the dock. The setting is so private yet so convenient both by water and land. We have never felt like strangers here you and Tim make sure of that with every detail addressed. This place is magical..... Thank you again, Greg and Tina

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Dear Jackie, on the moment we decided to come to Islamorada we knew what we wanted. We were looking for a comfortable place in the middle of fishing action. After a few inquiries and questions to you we decided to rent your place for two weeks. The conversation between you and us was quick, clear and nice. Off from the moment we arrived it was clear we made the right decision. Straight from the beginning we felt at home. The cottage is extremely comfortable. Beds are excellent, space is great and we found everything we needed there. The grounds around the cottage are fantastic. We saw manatees, squirls, iguanas. And lotts of fish in the canal next to the garden. The greatest thing is that you are completely private and close to everything. The cottage is within walking distance to the Lorelei, a good tackle shop and the grocery store.

We recommend your cottage to everyone. We had a marvelous time!

Greetings from the Netherlands, Pia and Joep

25 Years to finally find this 'jewel' of Islamarada

  • 5 of 5

This peaceful and extremely picturesque blissful Old Florida cottage genuinely reflects the halcyon days of the best the Florida Keys have offerred over many decades. Nestled in the trees and under the Palms that grace the water's edge of fabled Gulf side location with multimillion dollar estates on all sides. My 8 day stay allowed me to walk a couple of blocks to restaurants, shopping and marinas of quality on the water. The rolling tarpon and Manatees were 20 feet away in the canal each day while the guides glided silently past in the mornings picking up their anglers at the historic Lorelie where world class anglers hold sway during the season. After 25 years of visiting the Keys for up to 5 weeks a year this is the best place I have ever had the good fortune of occupying. I will be back.
