Better than I imagined!

  • 5 of 5
After months of research for accomodations in Islamorada, I found your cottage which seemed to have met all the criteria we were looking for. The anticipation to actually see the cottage in person was making me so nervous. You just never know if you've made a good decision until you see it for yourself. I can tell you that I was not the least bit disappointed at all. The grounds were so nice and relaxing. My fiancee and I actually did more snorkeling off the dock than anywhere else. We started every morning drinking our coffee on the edge of the dock and ended almost every evening watching the boats go by and/or the beautiful sunset. The cottage itself was very charming and I can only hope that if we come back down that way, we can rent it again.

Wow, amazing and beautiful

  • 5 of 5
Lori, Your piece of Paradise is amazing. We had been lookinf forward to this vacation for 8 months and I was really nervous about booking a cottage site unseen but when we arrived there I was overjoyed. Your property was even better than I had imagined. The grounds are breathtaking along with the view of the bay. The Paradise Cottage that we rented was very clean, beautifly decorated, and very well stocked with everything I needed to cook with. We had breakfast every morning in the Tikki Hut as well as grilling our dinner in the outside kitchen and eating on the dock. We all enjoyed the Kayak's and the paddle boat. It was also nice that we were able to bring our two little Shih Tzu's and not worry about them getting out of your fenced in property. Little Kobe and Gyzmo enjoyed the vacation as much as we did. Gyzmo had so much fun chasing the lizzards. It was so nice of you to let Ashlyn (our 19 year old granddaughter) use the Oar House with the large bath. She was thrilled to have her very own accomadations. Ashlyn enjoyed the Chair Hammocks on the dock where she spent a lot of her time. Thank you again for such a wonderful vacation. We will see you again next year.

This place has it all!

We (Me, my husband John, our friends Ronnie and Nikki and our lab Jett)stayed in the sparkling clean Paradise House. It slept all 4 adults and the dog very comfortably. We took full advantage of the fully stocked kitchen inside to save money and cooked all our meals here as well as the outdoor kitchen. We pretty much set up camp the whole time on their dock. It has plenty of seating, places to catch some rays or relax in the shade, easy access for swimming and snorkeling, a dining table for al fresco lunches or sunset cocktails and all the fish and lobster you can eat right off the dock. We felt very comfortable allowing our dog Jett to roam the property freely as the property is completly fenced in. We just had to keep our eye on him near the dock since he loves to swim. The other couple that checked in after us were so cool. They had a dog too about Jett's age and they played the whole time. Laurie and Cory hadn't even been there an hour when Cory dove in and grabbed 3 lobsters right off the dock and gave them to us. They went out again for about an hour the next day and brought back their limit, amazing! My highlight of our 4 night stay was Saturday night, when we all (the 4 of us, Laurie and Cory, and the owners Lori and Bobby) loaded the grill with steaks, lobsters, and hogfish and had dinner under the Tiki Hut. The Tiki Hut has seating for 6 and has a ceiling fan, plenty of lighting and surround sound speakers that you hook your iPod up to. After dinner we hung out by the campfire and roasted marshmallows. I think I drank too many Rum Runners, but it was a night I'll remember for awhile. This property is the biggest bang for your buck out there. We are already working out the details for when we can visit again. To Lori and Bobby: Thank you so much for having us. You both are so kind and down to earth. Your little piece of paradise is so well kept and beautifully designed and all the hard work that goes into it did not go unnoticed. Look no further for a truly affordable Florida Keys experience without sacrificing the luxury. It's really like having an entire resort all to yourselves.

Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
This property is all it is said to be and more. Our party consisted of me, my husband, 17 year old son and our Labrador Dixie. We rented the Paradise Cottage closer to the front of the property. The cottage was perfect for the two of us. Our son had the Guest House down by the Bay. There is a small boat ramp onsite that was perfect for his 15' flats boat. Founders Park is very close where we launched our 23'Open fisherman. Just a short ride to the beautiful dock with plenty of room for both boats. There is tables, chairs, hammocks, chaise lounges, fish cleaning station and stairs into the water for snorkeling. The sandy beach has many comfortable chairs and a fire pit. Another hammock is under the shady large trees in the yard. The landscaping and cleanliness of the whole grounds was refreshing. Every convenience was at our finger tips. We had use of the Kayaks, Paddle boats and all the water gear that was in the boat house. Lori and Bobby were very attentive answering our questions and making sure we had everything we needed for a great vacation. We felt like we were visiting friends and it was the first time we have stayed there. We will definitely be back to rent the new Bayview House next year. We have been going to the Keys for over 15 years now and this was our favorite rental. It is close to all the activities we enjoy. We fished, went snorkeling and diving. There are plenty of shops close by like the RainBarrel, T-shirt/Sandal Factory, Island Spice Dept Store, Hooked on Books, Latitude 25 and Worldwide Sportsmen. We went to all our favorite restaurants like Lazy Days, Islamorada Fish Co, Wahoos, Island Grill, Lorelei and the best breakfast at the Islamorada Bakery aka Bob's Bunns. Had to take home a Lorelei's Key Lime pie as it is the best pie in the Keys. I know I have tried them all. We were so busy we did not get to Robbie's to feed the fish and browse the vendors there this trip. But we will be back again soon.

10 Stars!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! Best describes this property. I am not sure where to begin. We (2 Adults and 2 dogs) stayed in the Paradise Cottage for 2 weeks. Not only is it clean but it is updated, decorated and furnished so nice! We have never stayed in a keys property before that included so much! This property is truly a Resort. Lori, the owner who lives on the property goes way above and beyond to insure your every need is met! The grounds of the property are everything the listing indicates and so much more. Our dogs loved the huge fenced beautifully landscaped yard, and the total freedom to roam! There is so much to do here that you never have to leave the grounds! Our favorite activity was swimming and snorkeling after returning from a day of fishing...followed by the amazing sunsets, right in our own back yard... It does not get any better than this! In closing I would like to say, I give this listing 10 stars! Thank you Lori and Bobby! See you next July! Sincerely, Mike, Kathy, Kobe and Roxy

Owner's Response: Mike and Kathy,
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a nice review! It is so rewarding to hear about the great memories made during your stay. It seemed like everyday you had a funny story about the dogs getting into the bait box or about Mike trying so hard to catch a huge lobster right from the dock and then realizing it was its molted shell! Lots of fun and more laughs and fresh lobster than should be allowed! We are so happy that after staying in the Keys year after year, always in a different vacation home, you found us and found your vacation spot from now on :) Perfect spot for your boat, safe and secure for your ballyhoo loving dogs, Kobe and Roxy, and fun for anyone who is around you two! Thank you again! Can't wait to see you next July!

All the Best,
Lori and Bobby
