Tenderly and lovingly cared for so expect pristine! #1 is an efficiency cottage that has great views of the Florida Bay. This is truly an excellent resort to use as a base for your exploration of the Keys!

Very clean, well thought out, and excellent attention to detail. If you are looking for something away from big hotels and resorts, looking for a simple yet charming place to stay you have found your spot. We were surprised how clean it was, and how well the property was taken care of. Excellent for a getaway!

Carol and Mike are the best hoteliers ever! We had a couple of special needs which they graciously accommodated without hesitation. This resort was exactly what we were looking for, quiet and quaint with only 10 rooms. No bar and no pool meant no loud parties to spoil the serenity of the view or the peace of the evening. The...

Impeccably maintained ten unit resort. This boutique property is the perfect place to relax for a few days and especially for a winter escape. Bring a good book and some sun screen. There are several fun restaurants close.

Private, peaceful, cozy and comfortable. This is an ideal location just steps from the water. All amenities included, just bring your own food and wine. Immaculate inside and out. Plenty of beach chairs, hammocks, and beach umbrellas. Each unit has its own deck with chairs, table and umbrella. Beautiful well groomed grounds. A terrific vacation spot.

We stayed at the Island Bay Resort three nights but it was not enough time to relax and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere created by the owners. Great stop after Key West. Very relaxing. Visiting the Flamingo portion of the Everglades is an option from this location. The room was nice and the property is beautifully cared for. I especially enjoyed...

Our 1st stay here. We stayed in unit #10, closest to the office and main highway. There is no where more pristine that i have seen. Anything we inquired about, Carol and Mike went the extra mile to get us information or recommendations. Never have to fight for a chair or hammock. Very quiet and tranquil. That said though, if...

You will be very happy you chose to visit this small but beautiful slice of paradise! Mike and Carol are the best hosts and they care enough to guide you to personalize your experience like no other resort can. Clean, private, gorgeous. There is no better way to experience the Florida Keys. Go Sparty!

Top things we love about Island Bay Resort! Mike and Carol...........they are great hosts. The lush, incredible vignettes throughout the property.
