The Bathrooms:

Since purchasing our home at end of 2011, we have done a series of major upgrades. We recently completed the expansion of the master bathroom. It is now the most spacious bathroom possible in EBC, with high open ceiling which shows off the natural wood beams above. The surrounding shower walls and floors are beautifully tiled and enclosed with glass and stained glass window feature. To top it off, we installed a new spa-like rain-like shower with multiple body sprays which gives the very best showering experience possible, even better than many 5-star retreats. My wife, a fully licensed designer, created this luxurious bathroom area. As part of this same project, we upgraded and redesigned the first floor bathroom. This included adding a new awesome over-head rain shower.

The Kitchen & Living Areas:

The other major project was the complete expansion of our kitchen. It is now the most spacious and functional kitchen in EBC. We also supplied our kitchen with just about EVERYTHING that you may need for creating delicious family meals. So you simply step and you can enjoy cooking while still being engaged with everyone.

The kitchen has an open design that flows with the rest of the first floor. On one side of the kitchen is a breakfast area for morning coffee and chats. While on the other side, there is a large and inviting family friendly table and entertainment area.

Entertainment Area:

First floor has very comfortable open layout, which is very accommodating for families. We offer the newest entertainment technology TV / DVD player / secure WiFi / Roku / cable channels, Sony stereo, and a special option of Internet connected tiny computer viewed from 37 inch TV screen and more. Nobody else has the high definition cable channels. Plus a library of books / magazines, some music CDs, and various DVD movies. Plus USB electronic charging stations for smart phones, iPad, and other devices. We have numerous board games if you want the family to go low tech (for a change).

Most Private Backyard:

Another project was the expandsion of our patio and landscaping front and back of condo. Our backyard is very private due to privacy wall and surrounding palm trees, gardens, on one side and new trellis and more trees on the other side. Our personal semi-private backyard and NEWLY expanded patio is furnished with complete outdoor patio furniture (table, shade umbrella, chairs, and tiki torches). For the grill master, we have a very functional BBQ with two propane tanks ready to go. For special touch, we have unique evening and night lighting in patio and umbrella.

Bedrooms & More:

Our place has 2 full bedrooms, plus a nice large loft area. The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed (with great high-quality comforter, sheets, and pillows) and digital Samsung cable TV on wall. We get many compliments on comfort and sleep on our high-end mattress, with many asking us for the mattress brand. The 2nd bedroom is very spacious with two full size beds and a comfy foldout bed. There is also an open loft area that has two twin beds. All rooms, including loft, have their own Comcast Cable TVs (4 in all).

Home Office Area:

We created a semi-private / separate area for working, studying, reading or just playing on a computer. We have a desk & new high-end, highly comfortable executive chair, extra flat panel monitors, keyboard/mouse, and printer. These are all ready to connect to your personal laptop. This area is fully stocked with just about everything (paper, pens highlighters, tape, etc.) including even Dell and Lenovo laptop power supplies.

Too Many Amenities to Count:

We have numerous additional amenities to our vacation home. This includes some bikes (2 for adults and 2 for kids), large number of different size snorkeling gears (goggles, fins, a few vests, and diver/snorkeling flag), 4 to 5 higher end tennis equipment, fishing gear and net, beach floats, beach chairs, picnic coolers, a large array of beach towels, beach bags, sand castle building stuff for kids, various board games, balls, Frisbees, hats, mosquito zapper, and the list keeps growing. You can take these to local parks so you will not need to rent as much stuff. (If not sure, just ask us. I’m pretty sure that we have it.)

All comfortable bedding, linens, bath towels and towels included. (No cheap 'sand paper feeling' towels or linen found here.) You walk in and all beds are made. (No bed in a bag found here.)

Our Special Location:

Our condo is in a private with 24-7 onsite security and yet everything is close by. Our townhouse is a very short walk to the pool and clubhouse. The big heated pool surrounded by lounge chairs, the fishing pier and private beach area. Manatees come by swimming around the EBC fishing pier / boat dock.

Due to the picturesque EBC shoreline (with its small lighthouse, boats), it provides incredible daily sunset photo ops. So bring your camera and a favorite drink to relax in the beach chairs in this family friendly setting as the sun goes down.

You are within walking distance to Founders Park Complex. This offers you a large Olympic sized pool with diving boards, large sandy beach, sand volleyball court, walking jogging bicycling trails, full basketball court, large soccer and baseball fields, Olympic size pool, kiddie water park and more. Plus Founders Park has full marina with rental boat dock slips available. There are numerous popular FREE to you (due to location) events at Founders Park that take place throughout the year.

Yes, this is all close by and situated in Islamorada, the Sport Fishing Capital of the World.

The Extras:

My wife has prepared a 3-ring binder with information about the local area (site seeing, local events, many discount coupons, maps, and more). Our home is surrounded by plenty of great places to eat. Just read our reviews and guestbook for ideas of best eateries and fun things to do. Plus we will be available for any questions via text messaging before and during your vacation.

Super Clean:

Our townhouse is kept extremely clean. Absolutely NO Smoking in unit. Sorry, no pets are allowed by condo association rules. No carpeting, just smooth high-end tiles & wood flooring, marble floors & counter, washer/dryer, screened doors. and ceiling fans to circulate the air in all rooms. (Yes, we have excellent central air.)

Extra Value & Our Rates:

Our rates should be comparable and may be a bit higher than others. But we feel very strongly that we offer so much more in terms of true value and our extras allows you to spend less. So please compare our location, actual home value, extra comfort, and the numerous amenities.

Note that our published rates are for double occupancy. There is charge for adding guests. There is a choice of insurance or damage deposit. (We remove deposit in many cases.) You will be able to pay by credit card, eCheck or check.

Cancellations:

There is a non-refundable payment to hold reservation and 60-day cancellation date range. But refunds may take place if we can re-rent and given enough advance notice we should be able to do so).

Selecting Our Guests:

We look forward to speaking to those that are interested in our home. Yes, we take the time to speak to all guests that visit our home. We want to assure that our home is a good match for you and that you are a good match for us. We look for folks that will take care of home and will respect our neighbors and friends.

Helpful Suggestions For Fastest Response:

We do request all inquiries have a PHONE NUMBER and the number of guests clearly stated. Also please check calendar to see if available.

Please feel free to ask any important question or even ask for extra clarification to help you with your decision. It's your vacation. Believe me, if an owner is offended it simply means that his place was not for you.

Community rules calls for monthly rental policies. So we use that as our guide and so may prorate for a given month.

Owners

About the Owner

I grew up in New England. So I know about cold. I grew up rooting for all the local Boston teams. Of course, the Red Sox and Patriots always broke my heart for many, many years. I graduated from a major New England college and then went on to work in Information Technology for many major corporations. Along the way, I got to live in Connecticut and Michigan. All great places with truly awesome people. But they were so very, very cold in winter and spring.

My beautiful wife is from the Caribbean Islands. She is a certified interior designer for a full service architectural interior products distributorship and furniture dealer in South Florida. We have been married for twenty plus years and have two daughters, plus their two cats.

My wife is the one who showed me the importance of taking family vacations and our own special getaways. We have vacationed in numerous US cities, throughout the Caribbean, Canada and Mexico. Plus we have made multiple trips to enjoy Europe (Italy, France, Spain, Turkey, Malta and England). Yes, we have created great vacation memories for ourselves!

So we truly hope that you will find the Florida Keys, Islamorada, and our Executive Bay Club Vacation Home very special and a place where you can create your own lasting memories.

Best Regards,

Owners

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jose & Marcia,



Thanks you so much for sharing your vacation home with our family.

We came to the keys for a vacation and to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Mission Complete!



The condo was fully stocked with everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ and sitting outside at night.



The condo décor is warm and inviting. We loved all the games, beach towels, beach totes, balls, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, fishing rods, and bikes.



Our family thoroughly really liked the EBC grounds. We fished at the dock and caught dinner (shark, tuna, barracuda, and more). We enjoyed seeing a manatee at the dock as well.



Pool is lovely with great chairs, excellent shades, and really clean.



Islamorada is in a great location. Everything you need / want is nearby. We visited Founders Park many times. We went snorkeling at Robbies and also went fishing on a boat at Bud & Mary’s.



We ate most meals at condo, but did enjoy lunch at Mrs. Mac. We had dinner at Lorelei for our anniversary. The food was nothing special but the atmosphere was tops! We had a table on the beach; watched sunset and listened to a live band.



Thanks you again! Hope to visit EBC again.

Michael, Ellen, Sofia & Victoria

Property was fair to good. Had a few window blinds that didn't work well. The front door lock is a pain and door needs re-hinged or adjusted? The spiral stair case is not something many people would want to navigate - and the only access to upstairs level. (children, elderly, disabled, etc.) Owner was friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the high marks on your review and positive comments that I was helpful. As is my custom, I reached out to you on multiple occasions to see about any issues. The only replies were text messages that everything was OK. In a specific reply email to me, you stated that “your kitchen and bathrooms are wonderful. Thank you for everything!”

Based on this and our follow up discussions, I was very happy and relieved that you had a very nice vacation experience. This includes the very, very popular 4th of July Fireworks celebration display right next door at Founders Park. This is done out over the water and the best viewing place is EBC beach and pier!

So I was extremely surprised by the focus on minor issues mentioned. I truly wished you had replied to me during your stay about these very small matters that I could have addressed very easily.

Well, we listen to all feedback and advice. But the fact is that we have been making constant improvements beyond those items mentioned. Yes, the window blinds were completely replaced. The front door has been completely updated with added the hydraulic hinges to assist the door in closing properly. These were very easy and inexpensive fixes.

Please note that spiral stairs are in every condo in EBC, plus numerous other communities and homes in Florida Keys. I have had numerous family members of all ages (from 3 to 83) and stairs are very easy to navigate. It is made of iron and nice wood steps overlay, plus it is equipped with handrails on both sides. I frankly think that it adds to our condo’s overall charm. I have a photo on our ad which plainly shows the spiral stairway and clearly mention that we have two floors and stairs. Finally, we never state that we are prepared for the disabled.

I can only imagine that your Wyoming cowboy country offers much more space and wide stairs. But I guess space has been at a premium for us in Florida Keys.

Best Regards,
Jose & Marcia

Wonderful time in the Keys

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time on our recent get away to the keys. Jose and his family provided a beautiful condo as described. The condo was very clean and spacious. We had a great time fishing off the dock, swimming in the pool and hanging out at Founder's Park. Thanks for a great get-away.

Great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I really enjoyed our two month stay at E.B.C. The complex is great with a nice large pool, tennis courts, and waterfront area, all very reasonably priced.This unit is located on the north side of E.B.C. midway between highway 1 and the gulf.
The unit was just purchased by a new owner the end of last year, and he was very helpful addressing any possible issues. He also is in the process of renovating. The living and dining areas are done already with a nice flat screen TV (a cable package including HD channels would be nice). The owner plans to have WiFi Internet access soon.The bedrooms are in good shape. In biggest need of renovation are the kitchen cabinets, counter tops and stove, they are old and worn. The refrigerator is very new and big.The bathrooms are ok but could use some attention also.
The spiral stairs to the second floor are steep and could be a problem for someone older and less mobile, especially when carrying heavy bulky luggage upstairs.
We think it's a great place and will only get better. We are looking forward to another two month stay early next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks for FIVE STARS and for being such a good guest!

We are actually much closer to beach, fishing pier and clubhouse pool. I unofficially timed the walk to the beach during this New Year’s celebration. It took less than two minutes. This was made more difficult due to an almost full glass in one hand and a bottle in the other hand. New found friends at the beach to toast with – priceless!

EBC Condo Association already offers an excellent Comcast digital cable package to all owners. But I did just upgrade to our own private Comcast Internet service with secure WiFi. Plus we added a Roku for NetFlix (to our collection of free DVD's). We set up an office area with comfy chair and desk.

Yes, the spiral stairways are part of all EBC townhomes. So pack light and dress down for our Florida Keys weather. Your goal is to enjoy our sun and our beautiful waters. We provide advice as to good places to visit and help with discounts where available.

Yes, we have been making numerous improvements, such as complete new beautiful kitchen cabinets & granite counter top, upgraded stainless steel appliances, new doors throughout, easy to use keyless entry system. (Since my wife is a licensed interior designer, she loves this!)

Plus we keep adding amenities, such as 3 complete sets of snorkeling gear and dive flag, fishing rod, beach floats, and much more.

We love the privacy and natural beauty that surrounds us in our townhouse, so we just keep adding even more plants and trees in front and in back yard. The photos don’t do it justice. Love to just sit back there and relax, or simply read, or listen to light music.

Beyond the physical, being in Executive Bay Club is always like being among close friends and family to us. We want to make so that when you stay at E4, you become part of our extended family and friends. So as we just confirmed, this will be your home again in Jan. and Feb. 2013.

Best Regards,
Marcia & Jose

Location

From the Owner

We chose this property since we enjoyed snorkeling and diving, fishing, site seeing, and the area’s good food. We had been coming down to Islamorada & Key Largo for many years. We both dreamed of owning a second home right here in the Keys. Finally, a good friend told us about Executive Bay Club (EBC). We came down to visit him at his place in EBC and simply fell in love. We saw first hand the beautiful family oriented pool and clubhouse. From EBC’s private boat dock, we traveled out on his boat and took in all the wonderful relaxing water adventures and returned just in time for the spectacular gulf sunset. I think that we were completely sold with that final sunset! Having done so much traveling, we know that EBC is a special place. It is so easy to just relax reading or listening to music by the pool. While there are plenty of opportunities to add excitement of the local destinations. These are as close as the EBC dock, or Founders Park next door, or a bike ride away. By the way, our vacation home is only a nice 1.5 hour scenic drive north to Miami and famous South Beach restaurants and activities. Plus you also head further south on a day trip Seven Mile Bridge, Bahia Honda, or Key West. To get to that special furthest southern point in US, you drive about 1 hour and 45 minutes surrounded on both sides by beautiful water scenery.

Amenities

From the Owner

You will enjoy the numerous amenities offered by Executive Bay Club, such as the bay front heated pool, which is conveniently right next to air-conditioned clubhouse and lounge, outdoor patios and community BBQ cooking areas with tiki huts, and plus two immaculate lighted tennis courts (rackets provided). Next take a two-minute stroll over to the private sandy beach area and take a dip in the ocean water, or sit in one of the various beach chairs and just take some sun. Don’t forget to come back here and wait for the beautiful sunsets. You will treasure memories and the photos of your spectacular waterfront sunsets. The days are as active as you want in Executive Bay Club. You will see folks walking, riding bikes, or skating around the complex. You can fish alone on the pier / boat dock or just sit and read as the gulf waters surround you. You can walk over next door to Founders Park Sports Complex, which has walking and cycling trails, soccer fields, baseball fields, skate park with incredible boarding ramps, white sandy beach, Olympic size pool, special events and much more... Founders Park has marina with boat slips and ramp. Leave all concerns behind since Executive Bay Club is a private gated community, with 24 hour security. Your biggest concern is what to do each day, what music to listen to, and where to have lunch and dinner. (I recommend that you load your iPod with Jimmy Buffet.)
