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

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
