"Islander Bayside Islamorada Florida"
For a new (about a year old) condo unit there was a lot wrong, the dishwasher would fall out of the cabinet, the freezer would not open far enough to put things in and out, 2 drawers would not open at all. The pool was not heated and there was no shade by the pool (weather was in 80's while we were there in Feb.) Also located very close to the road […] so it was quite noisy from heavy traffic on Rt 1.A little overpriced for what we got. No amenities there had to go 1 mile down the road at sister hotel for exercise room, and heated pool. It was a pretty spot right on the Bayside and had boat slips for someone with their own boat who liked to fish. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent and convenient"
Nice condos with plenty of room for a family of four or five. New fixtures and the kitchens and bathrooms are also new. The living room furniture could be better--Matha Stewart outdoor furniture used indoors. A little tacky and not that comfortable. Small pool and tiny beach. But one has access to the Islander Resort which is very close by and quite […] comfortable for beach and pool. All in all a decent place to stay for a week. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, great time"
We really liked this accommodation. We traveled with another couple so the two bedroom, full kitchen was awesome. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the decor was very nicely done. The only issue we had was the pool was freezing cold so we couldn't use it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, not so great staff"
Close to many attractions, beatiful place, very comfortable, staff no so courteous, not polite at allGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Islander Bayside is a great place to stay. Only complaint is there is no maid service. Very clean and convenient to everything. Would recommend to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We where in town for a wedding. Wish we could have stayed longer! Wonderful propertyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We recently stayed at the Islander Bayside to attend a wedding. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the room and the property. Our only complaints were that housekeeping did not come in to remove garbage or clean the rooms while we were there, and we did not have telephone service in our room. We reported the lack of phone service twice during […] the weekend, but unfortunately nothing was ever done nor did anyone even come by the room to check the problem or respond to our complaints.

"Perfect for a few relaxing day"
We spent 3 very relaxing days at the Islander Bayside. The houses are very new, super clean and very quiet. I loved having a washing maschine. The pool is very quiet too and great for relaxing hours, but you can also use the facilities at the Islander Resort, that's about 1 mile north of the Baysider, where are 2 pools, a heated whirlpool and a very […] nice restaurant with good food.

"Islander Bayside--great value!"
A very spacious townhouse-like rental. Clean and comfortable and close to great restaurants. Friendly staff as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Islander Bayside was absolutely beautiful and perfect for us. Very spacious town homes, all new with a marina on site. So convenient and relaxing. Loved it and will definatly return as it was so hard to leave the beauty of this place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Islander Bayside"
Overall we were very pleased with the townhouse unit. However, contrary to your profile, housekeeping services were not provided. I recommended to the desk clerk that the unit should at least come with a broom and dust pan. The walk ways were all shell and the floor was in need of a sweep after the first day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice 2 storey townhouse"
Do not expect lots of amenities on this resort but you can use the amenities of their sister resort which is almost just next door. What I like most was the townhouse which has 2 floors with a balcony on the master bedroom. The resort had a small swimming pool and you can watch the sunset from there. However you does not have an unblock view towards […] the west so from the resort you will not see the sunset going down the horizon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic townhouses, beautiful bayside views"
We stayed here on our trip to the Keys. I can't fault anything about this place. The townhouse was great, very clean and well equipped. There is a full bathroom upstairs and a toilet and washbasin downstairs off the kitchen. We didn't cook but there is a full oven and dishwasher. On the landing upstairs is a washer and dryer. There were washing products […] provided. The bathroom had very nice complimentary toiletries. The pool and beach area are beautiful and the view over the bay was fantastic. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"great for short break"
enjoyed stay,nice location on waters edge,good sized pool.supply store within walking distance with every requirement,and Green Turtle bar and diner accross road with superb local fayre.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed staying here, and was close to a good restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Seating in lounge area very uncomfortable. Lack of microwave dishes. Poor quality repairs to stairrails ie exposed screws at base or bottom balustrade indicate that this new resort will rapidly become scruffy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We LOVED it!"
We asked for a late check-in at around 11.00 p.m. and when we arrived there was no-one around and no indication of which townhouse we were in. Luckily, the Green Turtle was open and we enquired there. 20 minutes later we were ensconced and delighted with our accommodations. the next morning we received a huge and charming apology from Kelly and two […] hours later a new sign went up on the office door so future guests (and I hope we will be some of them) will never have that problem. We were only there for 4 nights but if you stay longer you may want to be aware that there is no maid-service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at the Islander Bayside for 3 nights at the end of a 10-day romantic getaway to the Keys. When we arrived, the guest agent was very friendly and assured that we were looked after. We checked into our condo and were pleasantly surprised at the accomodations. Very nice layout with a great kitchen, sitting room, two large bedrooms, large closets, […] great shower and a balcony with an incredible view of the water. Honestly, the only small complaint was the condition of the area rug in the living room, it was dingy and stained - but that is the only complaint!! It appeared that there was only one other couple staying in the entire resort but it didn't bother us as we felt safe and comfortable at all times. This resort is within walking distance to great restaurants and local shopping - we did go to the Islander for one beach day and it was fantastic, great restaurant there too! All in all, it was a great place to stay for the price, we didn't use the pool or the small beach area but all looked clean and upkept well. There isn't any housekeeping but that didn't bother us as there were laundry facilites right in the condo and the front desk has the basics - coffee, etc if you run out. If you stay, make sure to walk across the street for an unforgettable supper at the Green Turtle - best meal of the trip!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Der Aufenthalt war super. Wir waren von Key West nach West Palm Beach unterwegs und wollten nicht zu lange fahren. Es war cool, grosszügig mit Küche und Waschautomat. Zwei Schlafzimmer mit qualitätiv hohen Matrazen. Die Inhaber sind sehr nett.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Kein Hotelzimmer sondern eher ein Ferienhaus"
Uns hat unser 'Zimmer' im Islander Bayside sehr gut gefallen. Wir hatten ein Wohnzimmer mit einer riesigen und sehr gut ausgestatteten Küche, 2 grosse Schlafzimmer mit begehbaren Kleiderschränken und jeweils mit Flatscreen an den Wänden. Zum grossen Bad kam extra noch ein Gäste-WC an der Küche dazu. Die Sauberkeit war tip-top. Leider gibt es aber zwischendurch […] keinen Zimmerservice (keine Handtuchwechsel, Bettwäsche etc.). Ich denke bis 3 oder 4 Tage ist das okay, danach hätte ich mir doch frische Handtücher gewünscht. Der Pool ist zwar relativ klein, aber sehr schön angelegt, der Zustand der Anlage ist auch in einem sehr gepflegten Zustand. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Couldn't have been more perfect!!"
07/12/14 Kayasmomma Fort Lauderdale, Florida
We just celebrated the 4th of July (and also my birthday) at your resort with about 25 of our friends and family! Our townhouse was overlooking the pool and bay, and the view was stunning! As a native Floridian, we have stayed at many hotels in the Keys, this one has the best pool in Islamorada! The tiki torches at night, the sunsets that take your breath away, the gorgeous hammocks, fun beach area where we launched paddle boards and kayaks daily, the marina where we had 4 boats, the super friendly staff and other hotel guests, the dog friendly policy, the lovely poolside grill......I could go on! We are SO glad to have found you Islander Bayside, and we will definitely be back!!
"The Most Enjoyable Stay in Islamorada"
06/29/14 ldyangler Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
My family and I just returned from a 4 day trip to Islamorada staying at the most delightful hotel/townhouse. The Islander Bayside a Guy Harvey Outpost could not have been more perfect…It was new…attractive and very clean which was especially important with my year old grand baby. Each unit is a 2 bedroom Townhouse with bedrooms upstairs with a full bath in the hall….living seating and full kitchen downstairs with a half bath off the kitchen. The unit has a washer/dryer…..the kitchen is lovely with granite counters stainless appliances and stocked with very nice pots and pans…coffee maker and blender !!! We found the office staff very pleasant and friendly as well as helpful with any of our needs !! I can not say enough good things about this property. The ONLY negative is the bedrooms are small with no space for a dresser, only closets except for the master with a couple of built in drawers in the closet, but the most comfortable King beds in both bedrooms !!! Would defiantly stay here again and hope its soon !!!!

We have stayed here several times, unfortunately they were full on our last trip. Next time we will plan our trip on their availability. It is spotlessly clean, nice pool, courteous staff, good location. Book this for your trip, you will not be disappointed...
"Simple clean and perfect!"
06/15/14 WSRacing California
After quite a bit of research in finding a place to stay, I choose Guy Harvey's Islander Bayside as it was in close proximity of the activities we were participating with and Bamboo Charters. Originally I requested two king size rooms as a part of my reservation and they were only able to supply one with a single king and the other room with two beds. Wasn't a deal breaker, but minor disappointment in the grand scheme of things. The rest of the accommodations were very clean and the staff was courteous. I would definitely stay there again given the chance.
"A very lovely place to stay"
05/04/14 superwrong Mansfield, England
We enjoyed a lovely few days in Islamorada, made even more lovely by the fact we stayed here. The townhouses are set around the car park (nicer than it sounds!) with varying degrees of view of the bay. We had number 103 which was about as far back from the bay as you could get but we still had a bit of a view. Parking and wifi are free. I wasn't aware until check in that maid service wasn't included and cost $25 per day (we didn't have it!) and for stays of 7 days or more there's a fee of $150 for service. This isn't a cheap place to stay anyway so I was a bit put out that no maid service was included, but for 3 days it didn't really matter. The townhouses are very modern and well furnished, with full kitchen and washer/dryer. Pool area is really lovely, loungers, hammocks and amazing views. 2 gas BBQs for guests to use. The most glorious sunsets over the bay. A few things that we weren't keen on - the garbage truck came at 5.30am on 2 out of 3 mornings. VERY noisy and woke us up. There was also a strong chemical smell in our townhouse. We asked about it and we were told it was the cleaning fluid. It hung around for the whole stay and was quite nauseating when you first walked in. Lastly, the air con didn't seem to extend to the bedrooms. Ceiling fans helped so far but not really sufficient. All that said, the good far outweighed the less good and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Classy place, we felt like Kings here. The hammock and small pool area, the view, the accommodations all world class. Look forward to coming back. Only downfall was I wish we could have just rented the kayaks there instead of going to the sister facility.
04/21/14 Tricia J Fayetteville, North Carolina
It was a nice place. There was live music on the beach, the pool was nice except that there was food sitting around on the ledges, and fishing from the pier. The fishing was tough though due to the aqua bike rental place being right there and bikers crossing our lines. But ok overall.
"Great stay in Islamorada"
04/14/14 WandererLDN London, United Kingdom
We weren't familiar with the Keys prior to this recent trip and therefore had no idea where to go apart from Key West. After reading other reviews, we decided to pick Islamorada for one of the nights. It turned out to be a great decision, as we enjoyed the small vibe and great selection of restaurants. The Islander Bayside was perfect for our needs - comfortable, clean, spacious and with a quiet pool area. The complex is quite charming and whilst the construction isn't the best and we felt it was a bit pricey, overall we thought it was a good find and worth it for the night.
"Sunsets over the bay in a splended villa."
03/11/14 ScottM62 Staten Island, New York
A spontainious 4 day fishing trip to beautiful Islamorada Florida in the Keys could have been a average 4 days but the Islander Bayside Villas made it a great one. After a quick and easy check in we were setting up in the 2 floor two bedroom villa. The villa was spotless, clean and offeres all the ammenidies of home. The property is not a large over sized place and that is what made it a very good spot to kick back and relax. If you have a small boat it offeres a dock for 25 foot boats and smaller, a clean quite beach on the bay and a clean pool. The gas light torches made the evening around the pool feel like a island deep in the tropics. You can hear the live music at the pool from the nearby Islamorada Fish Company Tiki bar but not so that it is disturbing. If there was a negative to the place it is no maid service every day unless you request it at a $25.00 charge per visit. No 24 hour front desk could have also been an issue but it wasn't an issue for us. Over all a great find and one we plan on returning to. Pet friendly also for the hound lovers.
"Every room has a screened porch!"
12/19/13 dockdog Iowa
My wife and I just got back from a 5 day stay at the Islander Resort in Islamadora, Florida. We didn't know anything about this place before booking, but were pleased by what we found. The hotel is an older resort, but our room was up to date, very clean with a comfortable bed, had a kitchenette, and a screened porch off the back. Our room didn't have a view of the ocean, but it's just a few steps to the large courtyard right on the water and the two large pools. We did not dine there, but the room does include a free breakfast. It's well located on the island and back far enough you don't hear any traffic noise from the street. Also, enjoyed watching the ospreys nesting on a platform near our room. We would go back.
