An easy 90 minute drive from Miami International Airport, the
property is located in the heart of Islamorada, directly on Florida
Bay. The Keys Kottage is a freestanding, 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa
located in a lush native hammock. The Kottage is fully air
conditioned and there are ceiling fans throughout. The kitchen is
modern and equipped with all the desired appliances. The property
a nature lovers dream with resident fish, lobster, an octopus and an
occasional manatee in the marina, iguanas that sun themselves by the
boat basin and pelicans, egrets and osprey that fly in for periodic
visits. Our boat basin can accommodate boats up to 26 feet in
and dockage is included in the rental. The property is private and
secluded, away from traffic and noise, yet is convenient to many of
the best restaurants and attractions in the Keys. A variety of
shopping is nearby. Sunsets over the water of Florida Bay are
breathtaking. Well behaved pets are welcome, please inquire.
Pardon the delay in sending you this note. Things have been pretty hectic since we returned catching up with work and getting ready for a move to a new house.
Greg and I want to thank you. We had an amazing time at the Keys Kottage. Both the cottage and the entire property and location are absolutely beautiful. Staying there brought back many childhood memories when my family and I would spend summers at the keys. We enjoyed every single day. We rented a boat and visited various reefs, snorkeled, fished, and just cruised the beautiful waters. We also snorkeled right around the bulkhead and saw giant spider crabs and all types of fish. It was very difficult to leave. The cottage was very comfortable and appealing. We also enjoyed the very friendly widelife. We had a few squirls that practically sat on our laps asking for treats when we sat outside on the cottage terrace.
........I don't know if it is possible to reserve it now for next year........... Please do let us know. We would love to make the cottage our second home in the Keys.
All our best to you,
Elizabeth and Greg
You're minutes away from the best back country (bonefish, tarpon,
permit, snook, redfish), blue water (sailfish, dolphin, wahoo,
and reef fishing (grouper, snapper, yellowtail) in the entire
Keys. Fishing off of our jetty in the evening is alot of fun for
kids. Magnificant snorkeling and scuba diving sites abound in the
local area. A wide range of boating activities are available year
round since our area of the bay is well protected. Sea Kayacking
canoeing along our shoreline is popular. Of course water skiing and
knee-boarding are a hit with the kids. Local shopping for clothing,
souveniers, and fishing and boating needs is plentiful. Grocery
stores are convenient. There are several local attractions if you
need a day out of the sun and there are several . Key West is a day-
