My expectations were exceeded 10 fold. I spent five days at the resort and didn't want to leave. I escaped the city of Houston and fell in love with the place. Total relaxation and tranquility. Carol and Mike are the perfect hosts. Information on great restaurants and things to do. I will go back...God willing!

My wife and I spent a great weekend at this place. WOW! what great little cozy cottages. Super great for two. Clean, comfortable and quaint. Quiet and peaceful. These are small efficiency cottages. Patio with chairs & table(umberlla). Tiki hut and chaise lounges.

I have stayed here several times before and love it even more with each visit. This time I stayed in cottage 10 (my new favorite). Carol and Mike always make me feel so welcome. Island Bay Resort knows how to pay attention to the details. Very clean cottages with the little "extras" ... candy and real flowers set up in... More

We rented this beautiful cottage as a romantic getaway for a weekend. What can I say.. It was perfect... The resort is spotless, the hosts are very nice but respect your privacy. It is right of US1 so you do get a little highway noise. It has a little beach area on the gulf side with a umbrellas and young... More

I wanted to stay just for one night. Couldn't get a reservation due to their two night min policy. I don't have anything bad to say, just that people shouldn't waste time trying to stay here if they just have one night. I was disappointed, as the resort sounded perfect to me.

Over the years we have stayed in many places in the Keys. Our stay at the Island Bay Resort was by far our best. Superbly maintained property, very comfortable accommodations, a beautiful location on the bay, and beach amenities (lounge chairs, tiki hut, paddle board, kayaks, snorkeling gear) combine to make this the perfect location for adults seeking relaxation and...

We had a very nice trip. Staff was great. It's so beautiful. It is very cute and clean. It was nice to have a kitchen. It is certainly worth the little bit extra than what you would pay at a hotel. We enjoy our privacy and the hosts were very warm to our group. We had an enjoyable time and... More

This place is quite. Cute. You have everything you need in the room. Little kitchen to do your breakfast and eat it on your little own terrace. Plus very charming owner and employees. Very professional. A little beach. But swimming is not very nice specially in summer. Also compare to other hotels in the keys I found it a little... More
