For the 2nd year in a row, we so enjoyed our stay at this very special property. With the intimacy of just 10 cottages, a relaxing beach area, & stunning sunsets, we feel very lucky to have discovered Island Bay Resort. Kayaks, grills, adirondack chairs by the bay, comfy lounge chairs, & special touches all throughout the property make it... More

My wife and I travel a lot and cleanliness is the one thing we expect in our accommodations. Our unit was a clean as we've ever seen. Island Bay gets great marks just for that alone. We enjoyed he Tiki hut as it blocked the wind on the cold days we were there. We weren't able to enjoy the chairs... More

Can't say enough good things about this resort. My husband and I spent 5 nights here in number 10. The cottage was so cute and immaculate! The property is so beautiful we felt like we were in an adult fairy tale. Details are evidenced everywhere and nothing is missed. It's quiet and we loved sitting out at night either on... More

The pictures do not do it justice. My wife and i just got back from a trip to florida. Our highlight was the Island Bay Resort. The whole place is imaculately cared for and is scattered with lovely sitting areas where you can lounge in or out of the sun. The rooms are very well kept and have fun decorations.... More

There is nothing negative to be said about this place or the couple that own it. The property is immaculate from the driveway to the cottages to the beach. The size of the resort is perfect for those of us looking to "get away"----small & private yet friendly. The decor of the whole place is fantastic---tons of great personal touches... More

Loved this place. The cottages are beautiful! The owners have added their personal touch. When we arrived there was a personalized welcome sign on the front door, fresh flowers and mini chocolate flip flops on our bed. It was paradise. The sunsets and beach were amazing. It is very peaceful and relaxing. Mostly just couples as the cottages are for... More

I cannot fault this establishment at all, all is pristine inside and out and makes you feel that this is what a holiday should be. from the welcome on arrival to the facilities outside everything is as it should be and there is no...

My husband and I enjoyed three nights at a lovely place in the Florida Keys. The Island Bay Resort is small, delightfully decorated and impeccably clean and up-to -date. Ten cottages are nestled into a narrow strip of wonderland with the Florida Bay at the end of the road. We opted for the two room cottage and enjoyed the space.... More

We like to go down to the Keys periodically. We started coming to the Island Bay Resort just after Mike and Carol purchased it in 2000. Over the years they have constantly improved the cottages and grounds. There is obvious pride in their ownership of this lovely piece of paradise. We like the room provided in the suite as it...

The owners take extreme care to keep the cottages, grounds and flora in perfect condition. They're very friendly to boot. We loved that it was quiet, and that there was no noise from the street. The beach front is small, but it is one of the only beaches in the north Keys. If you're looking for a clean, quiet place... More
