Stayed two nights in this condo town home community. It was clean and the staff was friendly. If you are disabled, there's no provisions for getting to the second floor bedrooms. You can rent surf boards and kayaks from the office. You can also use the facilities of its sister resort on the ocean side of the block. Reasonable, worth... More

Hello Daryl - Thank you for your nice post. We do have completely handicap accessible units with an elevator to the 2nd floor. Your post didn't mention if you were handicap or if you were just curious about the accessible units ? Thanks again, Karen More

We stayed here for 4 nights following a 14 night cruise. It took us ages to find a place to stay and we were so pleased that we chose this place. Lovely, quiet position with a fabulous vista. Kept spotlessly clean. Everything that we needed was here. You could use the sister resort (Islander Resort) which was more commercialised but... More

We stopped her for one night on our way back up the Keys. I could have stayed for longer. Great little houses which are very comfortable and of a high standard, and such great value compared to elsewhere in the Keys. Lovely location, very laid back, great restaurants nearby. I would stay here again when visiting the Keys.

We stayed here on a tour of Florida in August and this was one of the best places we stayed. The villa was large and fully equipped with kitchen and laundry facilities. Lovely swimming pool and amazing views of the Gulf from villa terrace and pool. Excellent evening meal by the beach at sister property (Islander resort) one mile away.... More

WOW! Best way to describe this property. We and another couple stayed here in a townhouse. It was clean, neat, all amenities you could want. Close to Bars, beaches, restaurants....you name it, it was close. We were there for the Morada Beach Full Mooon Party, which was awesome as well. The staff was great, pool was super....nothing not to like.... More

Nice spot. Well laid out. Spacious houses. Great pool - not too small, so ignore other comments. Nice balconies for sitting out on. Great waterfront hammocks that you just don't want to get out of again. Friendly welcome. Broke up my Key West trip perfectly. Negatives? The downstairs of the house is a bit basic compared to the upstairs, but... More

Hello Mr. Cabbage - Thank you for your post. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the hotel and especially the hammock : ) The Green Turtle is a great restuarant, we also like walking to the Islamorada Fish Company, Morada Bay and Pierre's. Of course, less than a mile away is the Islander Resort Oceanside with Guy's Beachside Bar... More

Hello DJG - I'm so sorry the other guests were rowdy and upset your stay. I do hope you notified the front desk so we could send security to quiet them down. We do not have vending machines, as most people prefer to go to the little market across the street. Based on your comment, we may add something to... More
