Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful time at Bayside. Perfect location for great boating, fishing, kayaking, upscale restaurants, shopping, activities, and relaxing. The unit has been recently remodeled and no comfort is overlooked. Even though I did not cook, there was everything you could possibly need for indoor or outdoor cooking. I was initially concerned about the Murphy bed in the living room, but it has a great mattress and plenty of living room space with it set up. We actually left it down the whole time.

We rented a tandem kayak and road bike from the shop at the end of the street, very accommodating, reasonably priced, and quality equipment. Part of vacation for us is eating out every meal with our dogs and the restaurants in this area (Marker 88-great place to take dogs with huge outdoor seating area,The Green Turtle-small outdoor area in back for dogs, Chef Michaels-great Sunday brunch, MEAT, Kaiyo, Mrs. Mac's Kitchen, and I am sure I am leaving out some)are the best in the keys. Theater of the Sea (where you can also take your well behaved dogs to the park, boat ride, dolphin,and sea lion shows)which is a regular stop for us every year is a family run old Florida attraction where you can swim with a dolphin, sea lion, and/or sting rays. We have participated in these activities in many facilities and this has one of the best interactions we have ever experienced. This is about as close as you can get to blue green Caribbean waters without getting on a plane and using a passport. Anne's Beach, just a little bit south of bayside, is a wonderful place to see a keys oceanside beach with your dog. Also, Founder's park, a little north, has a great dog park and a nice beach on the bayside (but no dogs are allowed on the beach).

Finally, in our dogs vacation it was nice for them to see and play with the other renter's dogs. Besides hanging out with neighbors around the dock area at sunset, there was also plenty of space if you wanted to watch the sunset alone, everyone respected everyone else's privacy, but also helped out if you needed with boats, etc. We loved it and we will definitely be back!

We loved the first floor apartment, with easy access to our boat and the water! We fished, snorkeled and swam with a manatee - right there in the harbor! The owners were very pleasant to work with and made our week's stay absolutely fabulous! I highly recommend Bayside on Islamorada!

I wanted to let you know how very much we loved our anniversary vacation. I don't think I've ever taken a trip where I came home so relaxed and rested - and it was not because we weren't busy. The apt. was great and just right for us. The jacuzzi tub was a favorite place for me. We decided Islamorada was the perfect part of the keys to stay because of the convenience to activities, shopping, restaurants, etc. The other vacationers were never obvious or intrusive and help with questions was always immediately available. Our only regret was that we didn't take our 9 year old grand-daughter. She would have LOVED it. This was our first vacation there but I'm sure it won't be our last. Thank you for making this beautiful place available.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bayside. Our only regret is that we did not book two weeks! However, hindsight is 20/20, but I can promise we will not make that mistake again. The unit was perfect for us and our dog, and without a doubt this is a treasure. We shall return! Thank you so much for a wonderful week. (And keep in mind that we arrived the weekend of Hurricane Issac, but even he didn't bother us! The unit is that nice!)

This is a very clean, very spacious, well thought-out home for a vacation. The beds are comfy, the living space is roomy and I can't think of anything we needed that we didn't have. The seawall is AMAZING and the place we spent most of our time catching sharks, barracuda, catfish, snapper, ladyfish, and even a toadfish! What a place to kick back and relax, have a drink and watch the sunset. The owners are quick to reply to any inquiries. If you park in the Bayside slot, you have flowers on your car every morning. There is a very friendly squirrel, iguaunas, and several land crabs everywhere. The outside deck is a perfect place to cook your catch of the day and a great way to wind down for the day. Thank you Bernie and Linda . We had a great, memorable time sitting on the seawall, playing "the cloud game" (finding shapes in the clouds) and just overall relaxing and forgetting about our work lives for awhile. We'll be back, with your permission.

Activity and Interests

Activities and Attractions

You're minutes away from the best back country (bonefish, tarpon,

permit, snook, redfish), blue water (sailfish, dolphin, wahoo, cobia)

and reef fishing (grouper, snapper, yellowtail) in the entire

Florida Keys. Fishing off of our jetty in the evening is alot of

fun for the 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 and 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. Key

West is a day-trip away.
