We’ve stayed in the Keys many times but this is now our favorite place to stay! The resort is very tropical, private, clean, welcoming and relaxing!! This resort has everything you need for an amazing experience, cozy and clean rooms with a small kitchen area, private porch with table and chairs, they have an amazing beach area with great snorkeling and swimming, kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats, hammocks, lots of comfortable seating, an outside shower and soooo much more!! This place is amazing and the owners are very friendly and helpful!

From the time the gates to the ground’s open, the atmosphere is one of peace and tranquility. Our room was comfortable and sleeping came easy. The room is equipped to store leftovers or to have an outside grilled dinner using the bar-b-que grill. My husband enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Island Bay Resort for 5 days. It was absolutely delightful! The attention to detail and cleanliness were astounding. The cottage is small, but has every comfort needed. The grounds are immaculate too!

Island Bay Resort is a great place to get away from the artificiality of modern Florida and get back to the slower pace of Old Florida. The complex is quaint and quiet, and allows you to relax and unwind. You can go down to the beach and swim or just kick back with a cold adult beverage and watch the world drift by.

My wife and I stayed 4 nights, and we found everything to be what we like in a waterfront stay; easy access to swimming, either walk-in or from the ladder at the end of the dock, the Gulf-side water reminded us of summer lake water in temperature and clarity, the provided kayaks and paddle boards we're easy to use and stored just a short distance from the shore. The grounds and landscape design are of the best I've seen in the Keys. The palm trees dominate the skyline, not the buildings. There are many well spaced beach chairs with umbrellas, hammocks, and other unique spots to sit and take in the serenity of the sun, water and spectacular sunsets. You can visit with fellow guests as much or as little as you like. Like many lodging properties along the overseas highway, the road noise is noticeable, but it can become more like "white noise" if you can focus on all the other good qualities of being in the Keys. The owners and staff maintain the property well and are eager to help make your stay enjoyable. The neighboring property is a home rental, so you may hear sounds from guests and their activities.

This was the second time my wife and I have stayed at Island Bay Resort. Once again, we enjoyed our stay very much. The one bedroom apartment was beautifully furnished and decorated. We enjoyed the small private beach and beautiful sunsets. Good restaurants were close by. We particularly liked the Old Travernier Restaurant just a couple miles down the road. Also, you can walk across Route 1 to Dairy Queen if you want a burger and some ice cream. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

My wife and I have been to the Keys almost every winter for 24 years, staying at another place. This wS our first at Island Bay Resort, and we've already booked next year. The whole resort is beautiful, extremely and carefully well-maintained, and the owners, Lauren and Austin, are pleasant, professional, and diligent in their care for their guests. We enjoyed our 11-day stay so much, and already looking forward to next year. Thanks so much, folks!

We were so fortunate to be able to stay at this beautiful resort for 2 nights but wished it could have been longer. We were in Sunset cottage 6 which had a separate bedroom and living area. When we first entered this beautiful cottage, we were welcomed by soft music playing. Attention to detail, from the decor to the cleanliness to the hospitality was simply amazing. The little beach area is raked daily and the lounge chairs are spread out well so you aren’t on top of other guests. We took out the kayaks (both single and double) and paddled down to a marina. Beautiful sunsets, twinkling lights at nights - I really could go on about how much we loved this magical resort, but it really is best to experience it for yourself.

We stayed at Island Bay Resort for a long weekend scuba diving trip in Key Largo, and we loved having such a cute little resort to come home to every afternoon. A highlight for us was sitting on the beach in the evening, watching the sun set over the bays. Plenty of restaurants, grocery stores and activities within a short drive- definitely check out the Italian Food Company for solid Italian food and live music on the weekends!
