This is a great midway stopover or longer stay in a cottage atmosphere which harkens back to the old Florida, U.S. 1 mom and pop motels. Small, clean and location, location, location. Situated at m.m . 80, this is a convenient stop over in beautiful Islamorada. My wife and 2 teens stayed over night in extremely comfortable beds. We arrived... More

Everything was fantastic. The macccaws were lovely. Room 12 had nice features. Very clean and you could watch the maccaws from the picture window. Management was very helpful, genuine, and pleasant. Pool was great. Lovey setting. Large iguanas will eat fruit from your hands.

Cute place off overseas highway, right on the water, great sunrise views on their pier. Walking distance to restaurants. The grounds were clean, well manicured, the room clean. Could use a little updating, but a nice over night stay.

I really have to hesitate to write this. I don't want it to end up being too popular! It's absolutely adorable. We were there 3 days, 2 nights for a special milestone birthday. It's clean, really cute and well maintained. The on-site managers Yeny and Alex were so nice and accommodating. Really went above and beyond. The owners are very... More

One of the few places in Islamorada that accepts pets. It was a great find. Great place to stay if you are staying more than 1 night. You have a small kitchen and a livingroom. The owners are very nice and keep the place very clean. My only complaint is the mattress pads on the bed. They are plastic backed... More

My husband and I loved this little place! It's small, which is nice because there aren't too many other guests. I think have like 18 rooms total? Very relaxing property and gives you a homey feel. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The birds they have up by the main house are cool, too. My favorite part is that... More

Spent a fun weekend here with my cousin. The resort is made up of vintage, but very well maintained cottage-like suites. The grounds are very well groomed, and there is plenty of docking and seating by the water. Besides the views and the location, the best part of the Sands are the owners! They are warm and welcoming, and are... More

We (2 adults 1teen 2 kids) only stayed one night but loved this little place! We stayed in room 11, which is closest to the office and road so no view but who cares, it's a short lovely stroll to the water. Room 11 is a nice size with 2 full beds, and a couch, table, refrigerator in seperate sitting... More

We found this small inn by accident and were astonished at the lovely setting. We stayed in unit 19 which is an upper level ocean view room - one of only nine units and only two with direct ocean views. It had an enclosed wraparound deck with a hammock and table/chairs to watch the sunset and sunrise. The bathroom was... More
