Stepping back in time in a modern way. Very nicely renovated rooms with plenty of privacy and the grounds are beautiful. Felt welcomed and renewed and would certainly recommend to anyone planning to stay around Largo/ Tavernier.

For more than 10 years straight my wife and I went to the Island Inn in Treasure Island, FL. Just kept having more and more issues every year, worst of all we were treated like a number. A change was needed, so we broke our tradition and headed south to Tavernier, FL. A little place called Island Bay Resort proved... More

We included the Island Bay Resort into our honeymoon and we spent the first week of a 3-week vacation in Florida. At our arrival we were really surprised and totally flashed by the wonderful place. You'll find palm trees all over the resort. Some are decorated with lovely wind chimes. The whole resort is very clean and free of any... More

Very special place. Beautiful attention to detail. Recommend highly. Great beach view and access to snorkeling, kayaking and wading in the clear water. Mike and carol are great hosts with first hand knowledge of the area. Go now and go often!

This is our second time to stay at Island Bay Resort. It is great for a nice peaceful getaway to relax. There are two hammocks and chairs to relax and look at the water. The owners are very nice. We took one of the two kayaks out and enjoyed the quiet ocean. I think it is great for couples wanting... More

I brought my wife here for our 15th wedding anniversary. The reviews were great but they don't do justice to this resort. It is such a personal place, unique and wonderful. Mike and Carol are fantastic hosts who truly care about you and your experience. The details are important, that's obvious. I came to see the Keys but I hate... More

- good attention to detail and beautiful beach/garden area - simple, relatively small plot but they put a lot of care into it - very peaceful - good quality, comfortable sunloungers - felt quite pricey for what it is; room was quite simple and quirkily decorated. The room felt a bit dated & we found the bed too soft for... More

We were looking for a nice quiet getaway for our 20th wedding anniversary in the Keys. We came upon the Island Bay Resort in our research, and saw that it had great reviews. We were not disappointed! Carol and Mike are extremely friendly, and obviously love what they do. We were able to get the waterfront cabin, which was great!... More
