A beautiful, peaceful paradise! It is apparent that there is consistent attention to details inside the cottages and in the park-like setting outdoors. Breakfast on the porch was a great way to begin each day! Sunsets are fabulous from the beach or dock. Wildlife abounds in the water. Snorkeling and kayaking equipment available for the adventurous. This was our second... More

Island Bay Resort is a wonderful, private, paradise! Tucked away from the rest of the world, is this tropical hidden gem! We stayed only 3 nights and I wished with all my heart it could have been longer! We stayed in Sunsets Cottage and it was absolutely adorable! Perfect for our needs with a small kitchenette, kingsize bed + 2... More

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Florida and spent 3 nights in this beautiful resort. This is one of the most outstanding places that we have ever stayed in...all the amenities and personal touches were really appreciated. This is the perfect spot for couples or a girl's trip to the Keys. It is a very private area and... More

We just returned from a trip to the Keys and spent 4 nights at the Island Bay Resort. It was the most pleasant and unique hotel experience we've ever had. With just 10 units, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What we found was the type of hotel resort we always dreamed about. The best way to describe Island... More

The reviews don't lie, this place is amazing. We stayed at Island Bay Resort for four nights in the Flora and Fauna cabin. This cottage is a studio so it is a bit small but you are really never in the room cause you're always outside. Great bathroom, shower and fully stocked kitchen. I have traveled a lot and this...

We slid into an open 2 night block a little late. All I can say is WOW. The rooms were very clean, bed was comfortable, and all the linens were nice. The small nicely kept private beach on the bay-side gets plenty of Sun. Outside each room is a charcoal Weber grill, which we utilized one night. Everything you need... More

We stayed at the Island Bay Resort for three nights in cottages 9 and 10. What a wonderful experience! Everything was top notch and immaculately clean. All amenities were well anticipated. We spent a lot of time just browsing around - sitting in different beautiful property areas (like the swing, our courtyard patio, the beach and the dock for sunsets).... More

We recently stayed 6 nights in the Sunsets Suite. This was our third visit to Island Bay, and we were thrilled to see the improvements Mike and Carol made to the property since our last stay two years ago. This is an ideal resort for people who like peace and quiet and the feeling of being in a tropical paradise.... More

Highly recommend the Island Bay Resort. My wife and I spent a delightful 7 nights staying in the Islamorada cottage. Everything was functional, clean and reliable. Mike and Caron were very helpful and attentive all the time and the cleaning ladies were very courteous and considerate. Ideally located for daily excursions. We will definitely be planning on staying again.

My husband and I stayed here 6 nights in February. We stayed in the room closest to the beach which was awesome! I would highly recommend that room. There was a great patio right off our room which we spent all our time on when we were at the resort. Relaxing mornings and beautiful sunsets. The room has a fridge,... More
