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

Hey Buffalo Tex - Glad you guys enjoyed your stay. Some of the townhomes do offer a combination with 1 King bed and 2 twins plus a sofa sleeper. We will try to get you in one of those units for your next visit ! Thank you, Karen 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

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
