We stayed for one night in The Bahia Honda cottage for one night, two day get away from Fort Lauderdale. Our stay was so relaxing and enjoyable. Mike and Carol could no be any better hosts. The cottages are spotless and just adorable, with the so many attentions to detail based on the theme of the cottage. The grounds are... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here last week! Words cannot express how beautiful the resort was! Very personalized. Very private! We had rented a boat which we were able to keep right there at the dock. We were in the "Key West" cottage right next to the beach. Our room was just adorable! We certainly hope... More

We just spent 6 days at the Island Bay Resort and could not get enough of it. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed like family and that feeling stayed with us for the entire week. The grounds are immaculately kept and daily services are provided just like any large style hotel but here you feel like you're in... More

I've never been anywhere more well-kept. Old-style keys small resort but modernized and immaculate. The grounds had multiple seating areas, hammocks, soft music, kayaks, bocci, and ring toss. Its not exactly a beach but thats typical for the keys. We did go in the water there, snorkeled around and saw some fish and tried a paddle board. Nice area to... More

If your looking for a large hotel this is not for you. If your looking for a spotlessly clean property with great owners please go. My wife and I have stayed at several properties in the area but this one was great. Could not have been more pleased.

We travelled through the keys, staying in Key west, Big Pine and Key Largo/Tavernier and nothing could beat our stay at Island Bay Resort. From the moment you pull up, you feel like you have stepped into a private oasis. And you even walk into your room with welcoming music that sets the mood for the rest of the trip!... More

We stayed at the Island Bay Resort for only one night, but we will not soon forget the incredible experience we had! The property itself is in immaculate condition; from the hibiscus tree with varying wind-chimes in the front, to the bromeliads and other plants interspersed throughout the area, the grounds must be seen in person to fully appreciate.
