About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

'Ocean Dream'...This 6th floor newly renovated corner unit is ready for your arrival. Open the front door and immediately you are welcomed to a full oceanfront gorgeous view...looks like the lanai drops right off into the water from where you are standing... tiled floors throughout, new furniture and every amenity thought of. Plantation shutters on every window and access to lanai from living room and both bedrooms.

Grab the wine glass or coffee mug and head out to the fully screened lanai (bugless viewing is a must even on the 6th floor). Watch the pelicans and birds fly so close you can almost touch them.

Sit in the brand new lanai furniture and you won't want to ever leave. Well, for you fishermen you might want to try the wide array of charters located just minutes from your seat on the lanai...after all, Islamorada is 'The Fishing Capitol of the World'! Bait your line for sailfish, grouper, snapper, hogfish etc.

For you landlubbers there are many State Parks to explore & bird sanctuaries. John Pennekamp Park is 15 min ride north and Theatre of the Sea is a 10 min ride is a great marine mammal adventure that let's you get up close and personal with the dolphins, sea lions & stingrays.

Wanna drink after the Dolphin show? Wander over to Holiday Isle's world famous Tiki Bar known for their Rum Runners.

There is also snorkeling, diving, kayaking, jet skiing, parasailing and sunset cruises.

Do you want a relaxing evening? Head on down to Morada Bay Restaurant and plant yourself in an Adirondack chair in the sand with a cocktail, listening to island music overlooking the bay watching as the sun slips beyond the horizon.

Your 'Ocean Dream' condo beckons you back to the moon on the water as you slip off to a luxurious nights sleep on soft linens. Both bedrooms have oceanfront views, king beds (guest can be converted to twins) with full access to the lanai. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom.

Grab a beach towel (plenty provided) and head down to the heated pool or grab the tennis racquets and have a game on the oceanfront court.

Want to spend a few hours on the beach with some water toys? Founders Park is 3 miles south on the bayside with plenty to do...great beach, soccer fields, baseball, skateboard park, olympic pool, swings, marina and walking trail.

Shopping is also fun at the many boutiques up and down Rt 1...Our condo sits 1/4 mile off of Rt 1 so no NOISE at all...very quiet, peaceful location with only the occasional flapping of birds wings as they fly close enough to almost touch....I already said that!! Oh, did I mention you don't have to go very far for your groceries-supermarket 1 mile north, movie theater there as well. Supermarket has a redbox for movie can watch on the new flat screen TV with DVD player.

Your 'Ocean Dream' has everything you need (even hairdryers and straightening iron) and fully equipped for even a gourmet cook....plenty of wine glasses if you cook with wine!! Which I always do...

The sad part is leaving, but at least there is a glass elevator so you can catch one last glimpse of the ocean before you depart. Then you will get on the phone and book 'Ocean Dream' again for your next trip to the beautiful and eclectic Florida Keys!! Hurry Back

About Beti

We live in Pennsylvania, so it is nice to have a place to go when the weather gets cold up north, even if it is just for a few is easy to get to.

Beti purchased this condo in 2003

Why Beti chose Upper Florida Keys

Quiet, peaceful location with the most unbelievable ocean views. We love our updated is impeccably clean with tile floors throughout. We are in a good location for shopping, food stores and restaurants without having to travel far, as alot of people do in the Keys. I love being down there for the full moon as it glistens on the ocean and lights up the night. It is fun watching the birds dive for the fish and feed in the morning. We enjoy our screened in lanai, so we don't have to worry about the bugs and can leave our sliders open in cool weather. The laid back lifestyle and people are wonderful and everytime I go I totally enjoy myself. My husband loves the fishing and does morning noon and night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beti..................This note is overdue. I've been very busy trying to play catch-up after my ten beautiful days at your fantastic Condo. Once again, everything was as advertised and more! The unit literally has everything one could need for an extended stay. I hope to get back there soon. Thanks again for everything.

This condo is perfect! The view of the sunrise every morning from the lanai is sooo nice. Beti has everything you need......blow dryers in both bathrooms, extra blankets, lots of beach towels, small cooler, 4 lawn chairs, and a well equipped kitchen. We made 3 meals here and had everything we needed. The pool at the condo is great. There is laundry machines right down the hall. Also very convenient are the grocery carts to use on the elevator for carrying up luggage and groceries. Winn Dixie is probably about a mile from the is newer and nice and clean. They have a wonderful salad bar area that also has hot meats and pastas. (Grab some charcoal too because there are grills in the beach area at the condo) Could not have asked for a better vacation in the Keys! Thanks so much Beti!!!!!

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

Spent a terrific week here at Tavernier, the view was outstanding and the lay back atmosphere was very relaxing. Difficult to find a restaurant that was not great especially the fresh catch of the day. Beautiful views, excellent location, and a owner who cares. Will be returning next year.

Panoramic Ocean View, Perfectly Located for Exploring the Keys

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay here. We absolutely could not get enough of the view. From sunrise, to an approaching evening thunderstorm, and even witnessing a water spout. A birds eye view of the natural beauty of Florida Keys.

We also appreciated the central location allowing us to explore the area from Miami to Key West. We were able to visit the Everglades, have dinner in Little Havana, and take in the magnificent views all the way to Key West.

We hated leaving, and hope to be back again. Thank you for sharing your ocean paradise!

Owner's Response: Wow, sounds like you went places and saw a lot. I saw a waterspout once and it was very cool to watch. I am happy you enjoyed yourselves. The view is incredibly hard to leave. Hope to have you as guests another time. Please keep us in mind for a future visit.

Spectacular views and location...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent five days at Ocean Dream. The views were amazing and the area was extremely quiet and convenient to all points of interest. Just a two hour drive south to Key West, three miles to Founder's Park if you are looking for white sandy beaches and the glass bottom boat tours at John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park (Key Largo) is a must. Beti was great to work with and we are looking forward to returning.
