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

Been here the past two years in February with a family of 5, units are nice with the kitchen, more cutlery would be nice but the dishwasher allows for quick turn around. The furniture in the main living area could be a little more comfortable but, we spend most of out time outdoors during the stay. Like the peacefulness and... More

Just spent 4 nights here and really enjoyed it. Location was great if you are looking for relaxation. Accomodations were very nice and spacious for our family of 4. Ask for a unit as far from the highway as possible as the units closest to the road would hear a lot of road noise, I think. I was amazed at... More

We were two couples and a single, and the Bayside unit with two bedrooms and a convertible sofa worked perfectly. 4 nights, good sleeping, quiet, comfortable, and good location. Used the Islander Resort for beach and lunch, walked to Islamorada Fish Co. Unit was perfect for breakfast and evening social hour. Bright and cheery. TV and internet worked, mostly. However,...

Want to stay at a place that charges a premium, and offers no internet, although they say they do. This is the place. Want to stay in a place that has cutlery in your suite. two spoons, forks, knives....three would be a stretch, this is the place. If you need a key after 8 you can always drive to Islander... More

Beautifully kept 2 bedroom condos on the Gulf. Great layout for a weekend or a month. View out of all condos face the water with a big balcony to sit and over look the water. Would recommend this place highly. The resort allows you to use the facilities at the original islander resort down the street. Located close to all... More

We have just returned from spending Christmas at Islander Bayside. When we arrived on Christmas Eve it was only about 1/2 full. We were impressed with the rooms and layout. There were 6 of us and we had 2 units. The first day we spent several hours on the beach relaxing in the beach chairs. The second day we tried... More

Dear KTurn - Thank you for your post. I'm actually going to look into getting a few DVD players to keep on hand for requests. That's a good idea, especially for rainy days. We re in the process of updating our WIFI, in fact, it was most likely in progress during your stay. Also, I just ordered new pool lounge... More

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.
