This beautiful villa is fully licensed by the Village of Islamorada for Vacation Rentals, license # VR-224. It has all new furnishings, a fresh coat of paint and is located in the exclusive oceanfront gated community of Angler's Reef in Islamorada at Mile Marker 84.
Angler's reef is a luxury retreat resort framed by mangroves and the clear waters of the Atlantic ocean with 52 colonial detached villas set along quaint streets and walking paths, with combine solid craftsmanship taking inspiration from native conch and British west indies themes.
The community amenities include a heated pool with outdoor bathrooms. Chaise lounge chairs and tables to sun and relax overlooking the beautiful blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. There are two private beaches just a few short steps from every home that flank the marina and boat slips (available for rent). One beach has water access to launch a kayak, 2 of which are for your use as guests of our house, and the other beach is nestled among the protected mangroves where you can watch the gorgeous sunrise while sitting in an adirondack chair with your morning coffee. The lush landscape surrounds you with amazing palm trees, beautiful bougainvillea and some of the most colorful and gorgeous tropical foliage that only the Florida Keys can offer. The quiet gated community is ideal for families with kids of all ages as there is no road traffic and the little native Geckos will keep young kids entertained for hours!
Built in 2007, this villa is one of the larger exterior units and has 2 bedrooms located on the 2nd floor, both with private bathrooms. The 1st floor offers a wide open layout with a duel peninsula kitchen centered between dining and living rooms with french doors opening to the back patio. The house has many upgrades, such as stainless appliances, granite counters, rich hardwood floors, crown molding, 3 flat screen TVs, cable & WiFi.
The Islamorada area is world famous for sport fishing and Angler's Reef has deep water boat docks perfectly poised for any aquatic excursion.
The surrounding area has some of the best restaurants in the keys. Such as Lazy Days, Ziggie & Mad Dogs and Chef Michaels- just to name a few. The local watersports are endless and include all types of fishing from charters and boat rentals to jet skiing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and kite surfing.
We are the Clayton's, a family of four that have been vacationing in Islamorada for many years. On one of our trips, on a whim, we decided to go home hunting. We immediately fell in love with the Anglers Reef community and decided we needed to purchase a home in this great community for ourselves to enjoy and to share with others when we can't be there.
Susie & Matt Clayton purchased this villa in 2013
My husband, 9 year old daughter and I had the opportunity to stay at this amazing property during the 2016 Lobster Mini Season. Not only were our expectations met, but they were far surpassed. When we walked in the door, we were in awe of how beautiful and tranquil the property was. It was decorated beautifully and felt like we were at our home away from home. Susie was wonderful. She contacted me before and during the trip to make sure all of our needs were met. My husband and I have very demanding jobs and our stay here allowed us to decompress and relax and for that we are immensely grateful. Anglers Reef itself is wonderful. We were able to dock our boat there which is a huge plus. The pool area is well kept, large and provided a lot of fun after several full days on the water. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property without hesitation.
Thank you Susie for making the process of your rental so easy from beginning to end. We rent every summer in the Keys and this has been our favorite rental. The house is even nicer than in the pictures! We found that it was truly a home away from home. Everything that we needed was there. Our boys enjoyed the kayaks and fishing at the docks daily. Angler's reef is very family oriented which was exactly what we wanted. Enjoyed going to the sandbar daily and retreating back to our peaceful house!
Our stay at Angler's Reef in Islamorada was more than what we could have hoped for. The house was beautifully furnished as well as being very comfortable.The kitchen was well equipped. The owners were very informative as well as a pleasure to deal with. We enjoyed the pool, and the beach, and kayaks. We enjoyed the local shopping and restaurants. We highly recommend this home.
House was a perfect size...two en suite bedrooms and a large kitchen. We enjoyed cooking here as well as spending a lot of time at the warm pool.
Totally a pleasure. Thanks Susie!
My wife and I liked most aspects of the property. The listing description was accurate. The grounds were well maintained, the house roomy and the kayaks, beaches and pool readily available and enjoyable. The beds were comfortable (we both slept well), and Susie and the property staff were very accommodating and responsive to our needs, both via phone and email. The only slight negatives were (1) the considerable road noise from the back porches hampered outside enjoyment; (2) the knives in the kitchen were dull, but usable; and (3) carpeting in upstairs hallways and bedrooms affected my wife's allergies. One side note about Islamorada and the keys in general - if you are looking for swimming beaches, look elsewhere. Keys beaches are not sandy, tend to be rocky and silty, and the water is VERY shallow.
From my initial communication with the owner to the day we checked out I, and the other 3 travelers, found this experience to be excellent. The home, gated community, and location in the Keys were ideal. The house is well appointed, clean, and is as it appears on Home Away. The heated pool, surroundings, and community properties are beautifully manicured.
The binder in the property is informative. It includes menus of area restaurants. I contacted the homeowner during our stay, and she responded quickly. We have booked through Home Away for other vacations, and the checkout requirements here were less cumbersome compared to other accommodations.
Anglers Reef is about 1 1/2 hours from Miami Airport and about 1 1/2 hours from Key West. Restaurant recommendations : Chef Michael's, Limoncello's , Atlantic's Edge. Theater of the Sea is a fun place to spend time for children and adults. South of Anglers you'll find Sombrero Beach.
Our party included two 60 somethings and 2 about 40. We all agree that this was a fantastic choice for a Keys vacation.
