We booked our honeymoon stay based on the reviews here on TripAdvisor. Our goal was to visit the Keys from one end to the other, which we did. But always, every night, we wished we could be watching the sunset at the pier at Island Bay Resort. As others have said, Mike and Carol have created a slice of paradise... More

We stayed in the Conch Key cottage which is a beautiful two room suite with a spacious bedroom and living room/kitchenette. It was perfectly decorated for a true "Keys ambience." Everything in it contributed to a feeling of peace and tranquility. And, it was outfitted with anything you might need. The grounds are a small tropical paradise, and the private... More

Each cottage has it's own unique interior decorations....we stayed in the Conch unit which featured shells and wall mounted pix of Conch Key. Each room has a TV and the desk space in the bedroom was an added bonus .... Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful....on arrival they provided us with a sheet of recommended restaurants, etc. that were... More

A hidden gem in the Keys, a boutique motel (cottages) that gives you the perfect blend of seclusion, tranquility and beauty. We stayed in two different cottages during our stay. The suite (Cottage 9) was very nice and comfy. We also stayed in a smaller cottage (3) that was very charming. First thing you will notice when you enter this... More

This Cottage community of 10 cottages is located just off Route one on the sunset side of the key. Cottages are like little boat cabins .. very clean and very well put together with kitchenettes. Because the cabins are close to the road make sure to get a cabin with a low number such as one or two which away... More

Very private cabins that reminiscent of small ships cabins. Very well equipped. They are close to route 1 so ask for low numbered. cabin or keep the air conditioning on. Beach is lovely and quiet and sunsets fabulous.

This was our first visit and it will not be our last ! Mike and Carol are simply lovely hosts and they have a really special place. We stayed in room 7 Conch and had the best sleep of our entire two week keys trip. The beauty is that you never feel crowded - I think most of the domestic... More

We stayed a couple years ago and decided to go back this year. We were not disapointed! Mike and Carol have made improvements in an already great place. You know it is one thing to succed and obtain a first class resort but it is quite another to maintain it over time. This is extremely difficult and takes a huge... More
