We enjoyed our 3 night visit and stayed in the unit right on the water. The unit was clean and cozy. The only minor problem was stained carpets on the stairs and landing at top. We loved opening the French doors to the screened patio. It was very quiet and the setting was peaceful. I had paid over $500/night so... More

A two story townhouse, 2 bedrooms, laundry, full kitchen. Very nice pool, gas grill. We bbq'ed Christmas eve. Staff was so nice. Why stay in a small hotel, stay here in comfort. A perfect place. We originally booked for four nights. After two we wanted more. We got lucky, there was a cancellation. We had to move to a new... More

I did a lot of research prior to booking, especially trying to decide between this property or the larger-sister property, Islander - Guy Harvey Outpost. This was a great choice for what we were looking for, and it suited our taste. The townhouse we were in, Unit 120, was beautifully decorated and squeaky clean! The kitchen was large and modern,...

After spending time in Key West, we stayed two nights at the Islander Bayside on our way up to Miami. Pluses: It was nice to spread out in the middle of a 10 day trip, cook in (grill by the pool), do laundry, watch stunning sunsets and lay in a hammock under a gentle breeze. While small, the kids loved... More

We are huge Key West Fans and we visit it every year. This year we decided to change to Islamorada because of the distance from our home in Stuart. Traffic is heavy on Weekends so keep that in mind I booked this resort based on its location and what it had to offer. We like the fact that there is... More

This is the Bayside property of the famous Islander Resort on Islamorada in the keys. Cute, comfortable two bedroom condo with full kitchen and a swimming pool. It's on the bayside so you can bring in a small runabout. The Islander is on the beach with all the resort amenities. We were there for a wedding and only two nights.... More

Hi Julie - It sounds like you love Islamorada as much as we do. Glad you found all our hot spots; Trading Post, Green Turtle Package Store, all the galleries and upscale shops. The "old road" between our ocean side and bayside properties has lots of great restaurants and shops - a great bike ride. We wish you'd had more... More

No hot water in main building - laundry gets first dibs. Couldn't figure out why we had no hot water from noon until midnight. Maintenance didn't know? Front desk didn't know? Maid knew. Laundry was at the other end of the building as were the hot water heaters. Laundry lady starts at noon and goes to late night depending on... More

Hello Phillip - I think you meant to post this on the resort page (?) FYI - our laundry room runs 24/ 7 and it has dedicated boilers. The guest rooms have their own hot water heaters ( not boilers ). You will be happy to know we are finishing up a complete new hot water closet rebuild this week.... More

The townhomes have a great floor plan with a full kitchen, two bedrooms, and two baths. Perfect for a family stay. The bedrooms a little small, and the kitchen could use a few more items. The place has a nice pool and BBQ area. We had a great stay here.

Hello fstone - Thank you for your post. We try to have all of the basic kitchen utensils and cookware. I'm curious to know what you would suggest that we add. I'm very open to your input. I just ordered metal spatulas after a guest pointed out the coated ones don't work too good with the BBQ grill. Karen@GuyHarveyOutpostIslamorada.com Thank... More

Best location!! Walking distance to many local restaurants and shops. All units have a water view obviously the closer to the water the better the view and the further from the main road the less noise. We stayed here because we needed to bring 2 family dogs on vacation with us. We would totally come back again. Our unit was... More
