Island Conch Cottage

A quaint ground level conch style cottage located at the end of a private street in a very quiet setting. Cottage and grounds have privacy fence and gate. The grounds are displayed as a sand beach setting. This property has 60’ of canal frontage located on an extra wide canal and is less than 100’ from the ocean. Off the dock you will enjoy beautiful ocean views. The dock is equipped with furniture and a barbeque grill. It is a very short distance from some of the best offshore and back water fishing in the world. Minutes away from the # 2 and # 5 channels which are famous for the tarpon run. Minutes from Flamingo National Park and Offshore to the reef with numerous areas for fishing, diving and snorkeling. This property is best suited for 1 or 2 couples that want to relax and enjoy what the beautiful Florida Keys has to offer. Lower Matecumbe is a small island less than 5 miles in length with very little commercial real estate. On this island you will be able to relax and blend in with the locals.

In today’s times scheduling a getaway can be difficult. We are willing to work with you on that schedule, including duration of your stay, check-in and check-out times, pet’s will be considered on a per case basis. We enjoy a strong network with local marina’s, charter captain’s and business merchants. This might come in helpful when you are working on your vacation schedule. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

About George and Bonnie Klein

George & Bonnie

We fell in love with the Florida Keys many years ago. We have rented and stayed in the Keys from Big Pine Key north to Key Largo and have always dreamt of owning our own place. George is a licensed builder and wife Bonnie have been involved in many residential restorations. 15 years ago we stumbled upon a ground level conch style home in need of a great deal of work. After a long thought process we decided to purchase and renovate this home. Today, after years of work, we are proud of our island home. We welcome you to enjoy this very unique, very private home.

Why George and Bonnie Klein chose Islamorada

With our experience vacationing in the Florida Keys we found ourselves wanting to truly enjoy an Island living lifestyle. We definitely have it on Lower Matecumbe Key, an island less than 5 miles in length. There is little commercial real estate with a very close community. It is a place where visitors blend in with the locals. We believe this is the best island in the Florida Keys if one wants to be truly enjoy the island living experience.

What makes this house unique

This home is located on a very wide canal less than 100' from the ocean. As you sit on the beautifully decorated concrete patio you are able to gaze off into the ocean. Are home has 60 foot of dockage equipped with a fish cleaning station and water, ideal after a long day off shore This is a very quiet neighborhood and the property is surrounded with privacy fence.

Island Cottge was truely home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

My stay was for approximately 4 months and was the perfect location for both exploring the Keys and enjoying quiet times. Large fenced in area for my dog to run and play safely. Great location to launch a kayak or paddle board. The cottage was quiet, perfectly maintained and very comfortable. I would recommend this to family and friends and definelty look forward to a return visit.

First class

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Island Conch Cottage for a month this summer, and could not have asked for anything more. Great location by both car and boat, amazing view of the ocean out the month of the canal, protected and convenient boat dockage (with multiple hoses, fish cleaning table, etc), and most of all meticulously maintained and equipped down to the last detail. George and Bonnie are excellent hosts - very responsive and easy to deal with. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice house and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week at this house and it was VERY NICE. George and Bonnie the owners were very nice and easy to get in touch with, always answering emails and phone calls. The kitchen is fully equipped, I had never seen a rental before that well equipped, they were even providing many different cooking spices! The outside deck is very nice to relax, there are providing also a gas barbecue.

The house itself is very clean, there is a gate to enter the property / private parking so it is safe. I would definitely recommend that house to anyone and enjoy the Florida Keys.

Works For Us

  • 5 of 5

Recently we were fortunate enough to visit this rental home for several weeks, and enjoyed each and every moment of our visit. The owners were very cooperative and easy to communicate with while working out the arrangements for our visit.

This home is located in a quiet residential area and is comfortably furnished, immaculately clean, and offers a very nicely equipped kitchen.

There are numerous restaurants located within a short drive, and access to both Anne's Beach and Founders Park are just minutes away.

While each of us has our own individual ideas of what we desire from a vacation, you can be confident that this property offers CLEAN, safe, and comfortable lodging as you enjoy your Islamorada Adventure.

We plan on returning and appreciate the owners providing the opportunity to visit the wonderful Florida Keys.
