The Island Bay Resort was the perfect place for my husband and me to spend our last vacation before the birth of our first child. The location is just south of Key Largo in Tavernier. It is a smaller sort of resort, but this then means it is quieter - which is just what we wanted. The beach was a matter of feet away from the door of our room. There were ample lounge chairs on the beach, umbrella and cabana areas, adirondack chairs on the dock. They had a single and double kayak for guests to use. There was corn hole and bocce ball. There are lockers for dive gear if you want to scuba - that way you don't have to bring your gear into your room. There was also laundry machines right outside our room so of you ran out of clean clothes, no big deal, clean ones in no time. The location is very near to several good restaurants, local grocery store, movie theater, marinas, state park. We were there over Christmas, and Mike and Carol (the owners) had printed up a list of restaurants that would be open for Christmas. They were very helpful in recommending places to see, restaurants, good places to snorkel, etc. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay at Island Bay Resort and would highly recommend it. Thank you Mike and Carol for making our Christmas in the Keys Vacation so wonderful!
