About Priscilla

My husband, myself and our three girls, are residents of Fort Lauderdale. I have been visiting the Key's since I was just a baby and can honestly say that all my best memories were made here. I cannot thank my parents enough for introducing me to paradise and allowing me to experience so much! Because of this, I have always dreamed of owning my own property here in the Key's.

The first place I ever took my husband, Philly boy, was down South to the Key's. Although he had visited Key West in the past, he automatically fell in love with Tavernier! I surprised him with a birthday dinner one lovely Saturday evening at Morada Bay, and what do you know...he fell in LOVE. Because of the love we shared for the Key's, we looked further...

and then,

My dream became a reality!!!

We purchased our Hammer Point property in 2010 and began construction a few months later.

Owning our own property in the Key's will allow our 3 baby girls to experience everything I experienced growing up and more. I hope they will gather the same amazing memories as I gathered the last 3 decades.

Our hope is for you to experience the beautiful times the Key's has to offer and that you create unforgettable memories like ours!

Priscilla purchased this house in 2012

Why Priscilla chose Tavernier

What better location than in Tavernier?? Only 60 miles south of Miami and only 93 miles north of Key West. We are located just minutes away from Islamorada where you can enjoy Tiki Bars, Sandbars, great dining, and much more. We chose this location because it centered between Key Largo and Islamorada. Close enough to make a day trip to Key West or to make a day trip to Miami. We chose bayside to enjoy less hectic boating and water sports.

What makes this house unique

Turn on Jimmy Buffet, prepare your favorite cocktail, throw on your bathing suit and sit down in our brand new pool. Sip your cocktail with those closest to you and enjoy the views of the bay....what more must I say???

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time our family has visited The Keys. We typically stay in the Miami area, but we were looking to do something different. And we loved it! The home is absolutely amazing! We loved having the master bed room on the 3rd floor away from everyone! The Master bath was beautiful and the views from every room in the house just made it feel like we were in paradise.

When I travel I like the place we stay at to have upgraded amenities and this house does! The kitchen is large and 1st class! And it is stocked with everything you need to prepare nice meals. The laundry room is perfect which is another must have when I travel. The pool is on the small size but perfect, and the ocean was amazing. My husband and kids swam in it everyday! Manatees would visit daily which was such a great surprise and we fished daily off the dock.

I could go on and on, but we will definitely be back!

Child Friendly Luxury without Compromise ... Seconds from Open Water and Minutes to Islamorada

  • 5 of 5

We came with two childern (4 and 1) and my European in-laws. The thoughtful preparation by the home owners was amazing... Outlets plugged, blackout curtains put up, gates on the stairs, two cribs, pack & play, pool toys... etc. There is an extreeme attention to detail not only in the luxurios natural materials used in the construction but a thoughtful safe environment for children with fences/gates on balconies and around the pool.

Location was perfect so close to Islamorada. Short trips for tons of activities and ~2 hours down to Key West. We hit COSTCO on the way out of Miami and cooked in the fab kitchen every day at least once. TV room is good if you want that. Upstairs level is fit for a King. There are some great couches that can double as beds... one on the upper level, 2 couches plus a big L-Couch on the main level and 2 smaller couches on the ground level where there is full laundry. With 4 full baths it makes it a comfortable place to be with lots of family and friends. Nights on the flat roof with salty sea wind under the stars will finish your days with a desire to come back soon.

Our dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this beautiful home in the Keys. The house is furnished and decorated such that we felt very comfortable while also feeling we were spending our month in a high end tropical retreat.No expenses were spared with this house including top of the line appliances, washer& dryer, closets galore,and outside space where our manatee came to check on us often! The neighborhood is friendly and safe, our yellow lab was just as happy as us taking long relaxing walks.There was plenty of room for friends to stay with us.We cooked gourmet meals in the beautiful kitchen and made memories we will never forget.Priscilla has always been a pleasure to work with and makes sure everything is perfect for our stay.

My parents rented the house for about a month over the holidays and I had the privilege of crashing their vacation with my 4 mo old. Priscilla decorated the house for Christmas which was nice to have some Christmas spirit there and even got my daughter a present! So sweet of her. Priscilla had everything I needed for my baby!! She was so sweet to let me use it. Swings, play pen, TWO cribs and a bouncer.

I can't say enough good things about the beautiful home. There's so much space, and our family of 6 plus a baby really enjoyed that. The kitchen was sooo nice to cook in. And that view! I miss it already.

Having the pool was so nice to just hang out in when we didn't feel like doing much. The canal was cool to check out all the fudge swimming by and we even saw a manatee!!

We sure miss it already. We LOVED our time here!!! The house was great and the keys have so much to offer!

Our Fabulous February in the Keys

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience we had renting this beautiful home. No expenses were spared with the design and furnishing of this magnificent home. Priscilla and Tony were a pleasure to deal with. There was plenty of room for us to have some friends and family come visit with us.We spent many evenings in the huge kitchen making the fish we had caught that day. The sunsets are beautiful and we took many pictures from the rooftop. The neighborhood is a great place to walk, my dog really enjoyed it! The manatees came to visit us twice. This was a month we will never forget.

Return Trip Even Better!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Priscilla and Tony's vacation home, this time for the month of January and the stay was even better than our first! This is a gorgeous, modern Keys home on a canal with access to the Florida Bay. It has everything one needs to have an enjoyable, relaxing time from an open beautiful kitchen with all the extras to a rooftop deck to stargaze or enjoy sunrises and sunsets. The rooms are clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The pool is great for dipping and hanging out and the bottom floor has a small refrigerator for easy access to drinks for pool-time. Our mornings were spent having coffee on the second floor deck to enjoy the bay view, warm weather, and seabird flyovers. We loved having the multiple decks to enjoy the views and the weather.

We also love that we can bring our dogs so they can be on vacation with us. The yard and pool are nicely fenced and safe for dogs and children. Our older lab would check for manatee every time we went down to the dock. He seemed to develop a special relationship with a couple of these gentle giants! The downstairs area was great to set up our crates for the dogs to sleep.

The neighbors in Hammer Point were as friendly and helpful as ever. We learned about more places to eat, kayak and paddle board around Tavernier and Islamorada. But what was really nice was the home's dock provided a place to get out on the bay at any time of the day.

This is a great rental property and we are returning again next year!

Car: recommended

John Pennekamp is located less than 10 miles away, where you can enjoy anything from scuba diving/snorkeling to glass bottom boat rides. If you have enough time, take advantage and rent a boat to explore the United States first undersea park.

Theatre of the Sea is located at mm 84.5, just under 10 miles away. Enjoy anything from swimming with dolphins to swimming with sea lions and rays. There are also great shows starring some of our favorite marine wildlife.

Key West is also a FUN hotspot. You are close enough to visit for the day.

I will be happy to discuss the many attractions surrounding our home. There are too many to mention.
