More than a gem, 5 Stars!
The home was exactly as described but better. Every detail was attended to including instructions on how to use everything right down to the remote controls. Exceptional use of space with comfortable seating and bedding. Immaculate baths and kitchen which was fully equipped with everything you need. Paper items and dish soap. Spices and seasonings. Laundry soap for the full size washer dryer. Every detail attended to. Moving outdoors provided exceptional views and much used space on the rooftop terrace. Cannot recommend it highly enough. It was perfect!

What an amazing week at this small property on Islamorada gulf side. The "Nest" is a 1 bedroom (+ a Murphy bed) upstairs unit in a building with 2 other units below. Large outdoor space with covered lounge space plus table and umbrella. Great view of the boat basin and the gulf. The outdoor spaces on this property (yes each of the units had a patio area with tables and chairs) create an atmosphere where all of the guests and owners socialize at the end of the day .... watching the amazing gulf sunsets, (telling fish tales). (small surprise; we watched a manatee calf have her baby in the boat basin....she and baby visited us each day!)The unit itself was well appointed. Queen size bed in the master bedroom...2 full baths....full washer/dryer, dishwasher, .microwave, stainless refrigerator, full stove...Kuerig...literally everything we needed. Appreciated the decor .... its not just a rental; this is someone's home and it showed in all of the details. Thanks so much to Kristine & Gary for providing the perfect spot for out 1st anniversary. We will return!

We stayed here in May for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. It was the perfect spot. Weather was perfect, view was amazing and the villa was beautiful. It was so relaxing to sit on the huge deck and enjoy the beautiful view of the water. Perfect to grill out the fresh catch from a day of fishing. We had our kayaks and had the easiest place to launch and store right by the water. Book this location nothing about it will disappoint. We will definitely be back

An Islamorada hideaway
We have visited the Nest for over 10 years now! It is a beautiful place, both the living space and the property overall. The owner works to keep the villa updated with nice furnishings and appliances. The view is wonderful, both the living area and the master bedroom have water views of the lovely Florida Bay. We like to cook while there and the kitchen has everything you need. Together with the gas grill on the deck we have enjoyed great meals. As others have mentioned, there are wonderful restaurants within walking distance or a short drive, we love the walk to the Loralei for outside dining, views, and music! The jetty at the boat basin is built up on a coral base, has a couple of palm trees for shade, and a fantastic place to sit and read, watch the boats go by, and see the most amazing sunsets. We have loved having our boat with us the past couple of years, just to hop in and explore the area along with great fishing. Key West is about an hour and a half away on a cool sightseeing drive if you are so inclined to become "Key Wasted", but at the Nest we usually become afflicted with Keys Disease, which is not wanting to drive more than 5 miles in any direction, it is all right there for you!!

Fun Times in the Keys
The Nest is in a great location on the bay side , spectacular sun set view. The villa is well cared for and has all the features of home. My wife and I enjoyed our stay immensely. Great place to moor a boat and only steps from your door (included in the condo rental). I rented a boat and fished in the bay. Tarpon fishing was outstanding!!!!! Chilled on the pier in the early evening with the other guest sharing fishing stories and a cold beverage or two. We are returning in two weeks for our second stay at the Nest!!!!

The "Nest", the perfect Florida Keys vacation rental
Perfect Florida Keys rental… every time I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying this property it’s been everything I could possibly expect. Clean, lovely and comfortable furnishings, fully, and I mean fully equipped, steps from the water and those spectacular Florida sunsets with the very best view available from the expansive deck or the convenient jetty… you pick! I don’t think there’s a better view available. Great restaurants and bars in easy proximity if you don’t feel like whipping up a meal in the condo or grilling a fish, or 10, on the deck. The owner, is exceptionally responsive and will bend over backward to ensure you have the best vacation ever… and keep coming back… just like I have!

The perfect nesting place in paradise!
The Nest villa is a very quiet, tropical nesting place that we have rented multiple times over the past 10 years. It is a 2nd floor condo that is very well equipped, comfortable and has most everything you need for a week’s stay. The inside is clean and modernized. The Bay, lagoon and sunset views from the main living area are truly amazing! It is located within walking distance of many local favorite eateries and yes, even a local brewery. The entire apartment complex consists of multiple small dwellings and is fashioned after an old keys style fish camp. The grounds are beautiful! The whole property is very tropical looking with several palm trees and flowering foliage. The villa also has a huge deck that overlooks the back yard, boat lagoon and Florida Bay. There are chairs there as well as a barbecue and table for dining outdoors. The lagoon is deep and wide enough for my 21 ft. boat and there are fish cleaning tables and fresh water hoses available. Don is a pleasure to do business with and makes the whole rental experience a breeze! Looking forward to returning again soon! We LOVE this place!

This condo has such a great location and beautiful views. We walked to a few restaurants & drove short distances to others we love. It was also great being able to just cross the street to spend time at the Islamorada Beer Company! The condo itself has a great layout & is well stocked. The beds are so comfortable & the 2 baths are very nice. It's a pleasure dealing with Don, too! Everything was so wonderful that we've already booked for a week this December.

Best weekly rental in Islamorada!
I've stayed at the "Nest" numerous times and will be there for my I believe my 5th time this summer 2018. The "Nest" is located on a beautiful, tropical property and is meticulously maintained. My favorite feature of the lot itself is the protected basin to safely tie-up your boat, clean fish and mingle with the other visitors...which are mostly repeat customers that you get to know over time. Inside the Nest you want for nothing, it has everything that you're used to at your own home, all of the electronics and appliances work as they should, linens are clean, bathrooms and the rest of the place are immaculate. The Nest has a private deck for laying out in the sun then grilling your fish for dinner, the sunset views are absolutely unforgettable. Stop clicking and book the Nest, you'll be glad that you did!
