Situated on a tropical landscape near Key Largo, Fla., Island Bay Resort features a private beach lined with hammocks and lounge chairs, and with plenty of opportunities to swim and snorkel.
Families stay in one of just 10 quaint cottages, each with their own private deck and barbecue grill. Cottages have one or two bedrooms, or come in efficiency form. Many of them offer kitchenettes with mini refrigerators and microwaves, as well.

Island Bay Resort is a colorful and lovely group of brightly colored cottages on the bay! Our room was small but more than adequate.the streaming Jimmy Buffet music was a great touch! Enjoying the sunset from their beach or pier is a must! Mike and Carol are wonderful hosts! It’s a little hidden gem!
This is the only place to stay in the Keys! With only 10 cottages which means even though they were full we had lots of private time together.
This was our first time to stay in the front cottage (1) which is right on the beach, it was quiet with a 2nd deck facing the water. We usually run up and down the Keys as there is so much to see but this time we spent all our time at the hotel, mostly outside. Always making our own breakfast and lunch and enjoying the view but went out for dinner all week as there are so many great restaurants nearby! This is the most relaxing vacation ever!
