My husband and I wanted to find a relaxing place to spend the week in between Christmas and New Years. We found just the place.The Island Bay Resort has 10 little cottages, all a little different in size, layout and decor. Each has it's own patio with table, chairs and a grill. Each cottage comes equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, plates and utensils., To speak more about our cottage, it had a nice table and chairs in the kitchen area, and a king size bed, armoire, a sofa in the bedroom area and a flat screen TV . The bedroom was separated from the kitchen area but didn't have a door closing off the kitchen from the bedroom. The bathroom in cottage #10 is a very nice size.The entire cottage was spacious. The interior was very clean. The grounds were beautiful and the owners, Carol and Mike do a fantastic job at keeping those grounds clean and well kept. There is ample parking across from all the units. Island Bay has its own private beach for their guests only, with chairs and hamocks and little huts with comfortable chairs in them if you prefer to stay out of the sun. They offer kayaks, a Bocce Ball court, and a Corn Hole set on the grounds.
Upon walking into our little cottage at arrival we found 2 beach towels, two pink hibiscus flowers and a chocolate on our bed. Also music playing. We felt that all of this was a lovely touch to make you feel welcome. The owners are a married couple and have been the owners since 2000. They are very helpful. They gave us a list of all their favorite restaurants in the area. We tried many of them. In the Keys the restaurants, shops and attractions are located by Mile Markers. We will definitely return. We highly recommend Island Bay Resort.
There are different accommodations and it just depends on your needs. Cottage #10 and cottage #9 ha...
