We just returned from at week in the Keys, using the Island Bay Resort (IBR) as a base for us as we traveled up and down the Keys (worked great). This is a quiet and charming personal resort that features guest cottages that are very well appointed for comfort and convenience. The resort has a private beach that is perfect for watching fantastic sunsets. Each cottage has a kitchenette, an outside grill and a patio with table and chairs. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and carefully maintained. The cottages are kept perfectly cleaned and very well maintained. Also of note are the owner hosts, Carol & Mike. As true excellent hosts they go out of their way to make you stay comfortable and to offer advice re. sights to see and places to eat. I found all of their recommendations to be spot-on. We will absolutely be back! Great value for the vacation dollar here.
