No pets alllowed, no smoking inside the house please.

We purchased this house after renting in the Keys for many years, we got tired of looking so hard for good quality, clean homes to rent which were and are still very difficult to find. If you are looking for something 'nice' that the actual house looks 'better' than the pictures, that will provide for your family and friends a vacation where memories will be made, that will last a lifetime and that is impeccably clean inside-out, then this is your rental.

About The Owner

We are Orlando and Iliana Abella, we have lived in Miami since the early sixties and have been going to the Keys ever since. We bought this house as our main vacation house. We love fishing, diving, boating and the ambience and atmosphere of the Florida Keys, specially Islamorada and this location. Paradise, to relax, enjoy and share life's true riches of family and friends. When we don't use it is available for rent.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Islamorada

When we saw this house, it was ' love at first sight ' and still is, although many renovations and much remodeling has taken place and constant ' twicking ' . A few of the main benefits are its easy fast access to the bay and ocean, the pristine white sandy private community beach on the bay side, ( very unusual in the Keys ) and its neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Since this is our only vacation house, we really take care of it constantly. Everything works, we keep it up with a very good handy man and his wife as the cleaning lady. Always updating , repairing, replacing, maintaining, cleaning inside and out. This house actually looks better in person than in the pictures and virtual tour and in most cases it is the opposite.

Perfect rental in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our Thanksgiving in Islamorada! Our party ranged in age from 24 - 90 and all of us had a great time! The house is comfortable and very well appointed. Everything is in top condition and very nicely decorated with keys decor. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the little things (like spices and such) that you don't want to have to buy, but you want to have if you like to cook! Updated appliances, comfy beds, marvelous showers and plenty of room for all of us! Although we stayed on a holiday week, we barely heard anybody around us! The neighbors we did see were friendly and smiling.

We fished (and caught fish!) from the dock with the poles here, took out the kayak and paddleboard, and rode around on the bikes -- which are incredibly comfy and stable. The kids even saw a manatee!

The beach is a short bike/kayak ride away -- even has a place to park for when I took my 90-year old father-in-law over. It was a little cold while we were here, but we still managed to get some beach time in! So much to do a week is hardly enough time!

It's just a short drive to all of the popular attractions -- we took day trips to Key West, the everglades, and a charter fishing trip out of Bud n Mary's (5 minutes away). If you have a boat, you can dock it right in front of the house -- next time, maybe we'll rent one! If fishing is your thing -- Islamorada is the place!

I'd surely recommend staying at the Villa Marlin! We felt it was a great place at a great value and the owner was very friendly and accommodating!

Best days in Keys!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing property! Home was clean, updated & full of extras. Extremely comfortable beds. & living space. The bikes, kayak & paddleboard made it possible to explore the waters & beach w/o getting in the car! We rented a boat too just to be able to fish in Atlantic & the dock was perfect. Kitchen was fully stocked so cooking our catch from Mr Lobster was a breeze! The location was close enough to get dinner in Marathon or upper keys! Would love to come back again & again!!!

The pictures are exactly what you get, a beautifully furnished home with every need right on the water with a dock for my own boat. Very comfortable and very relaxing. I'm happy to have found this jewel in Islamorada.

Absolutely The Best!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home far exceeded our expectations. This was our best VRBO experience to date. The house was so clean, updated and comfortable. The private beach was a great plus. The owner provided us with beach bikes canoe and a kayak. The only negative was that we had to leave. We will absolutely be back to this spectacular house!
