how to enjoy the keys 101
June 3, 2015
Step 1 Stay where you are steps away from the water. Step 2 Make sure that you have the best view of sunset Step 3 Wake up every morning and put on a life jacket and get out there on a kayak or paddle board Step 4 Stay in a place that has comfortable beds and living area and kitchen and patio so your family friends dogs can all hang out and enjoy My husband and I brought our two 10 pound dogs and we had a great relaxing keys vacation. Friends or ours stayed at a no pets location nearby so we got together for a snorkel adventure too. Please make sure to go boating diving snorkeling while you visit the keys. We had an excellent vacation and we were very happy with our stay and had everything we needed. Martha was great. She helped with all my questions over the phone and was super helpful and sweet when we met in person. We usually try to get to the keys at least once a year most often to Islamorada. My sister used to live in Ocean Reef and also Key Largo. It has been a while since we stayed in Key Largo. We were so content with our stay that we will definitely come back again and tell our friends. Thanks again for everything Martha!

A little Slice of Paradise !

Each evening we would sit on the dock watching the sun slowly set over the water. The cottage was perfect, the owners Al & Martha were very gracious hosts. A perfect vacation retreat.

Perfect Key Largo Get Away
January 28, 2015
Stayed in the cottage for 5 days. It is one of three houses on the property, which stretches from the Overseas Highway to the "Bay Side"-- All promised amenities were there and the highlight is the dock and "beach" area-- The house was fine, beds were comfortable and kitchen was well equipted.. Walking distance to Mrs Mac's and one of the better Key Lime pies on the Key Largo.
Warm get away

Clean and comfortable. Enough space in condo to cook meals and enjoy the Florida sunshine. Having the golf cart was a plus. The people at the resort were very friendly. There is a laid back and relaxed atmosphere here. Ready to go back!
True piece of paradise

We had an amazing time, beautiful sunsets we cant wait to go back, perfect location, you can fish from the dock (we were very lucky), clean and cozy

Tropical Cottage in a Paradise Keys
September 12, 2014
The house was very nice and clean. Everything worked fine, including the Wi Internet. It was a plus. We had a wonderful weather during out staying. The boat's dock was also very efficient accommodated my boat perfectly, and had with a fresh water hose and a nice table to clean the fish. We had a wonderful time and I am sure I will go back.
A little dated, but quite cozy"
August 3, 2014
The decor is a little dated, but the cottage was very clean and comfortable. You share the bay front and deck with two other homes owned by the same person. Martha and Al are on property during the day and can assist you with anything you need.

Super Fun for All!
July 29, 2014
Pet Friendly! This cottage is set in a beautiful lush, tropical setting. The grounds are shaded nearly all the time, which made being outside even in the heat of the day comfortable. There is a covered patio with ceiling fan. We loved sitting out, eating watermelon and just gazing upon the plants and toward the water, sharing stories of the fun we'd had while Chloe (our 14 lb rat terrier) sunned herself on the genuine brick pavers watching for squirrels. This cottage had everything one could need including a good-sized, fully-equipped full kitchen. Adorned with custom bath tile, baskets of books, unique wall hangings and a big TV with satellite -- AC was COLD, ceiling fans....who could ask for more? In addition to our beloved Chloe, we also had 2 teen grandkids with us who loved all the outside amenities including the kayaks and snorkeling. As an extra, we rented Al's pontoon boat for a couple of days to further water exploration.

Lovely simple house. Casual easy keys living With everything you need. Sit at the dock and enjoy Sunsets. Our teens loved going out in the kayaks. Highly recommend it!

Beautiful and quiet little cottage in Key Largo
May 24, 2014
We chose the cottage because it was dog-friendly, and we wanted to take our collie along. The cottage is located along the main highway into the Keys, so when we arrived we were a bit worried the highway noise would be a problem. It wasn't an issue at all. We spend most of our days our exploring the Keys, and returned to the cottage to relax on the dock in the evening and then sleep. The cottage is located on a property that is shared with two other rentals, but the three rentals are situated in such a way that we felt like we were the only people on the property. The yard that our patio faced is very lush, and stretches back from the cottage to a dock on the bay side. There are kayaks on the property that are available free for use by guests. The cottage property is well hidden behind several shops and is hard to find the first time; be sure to get very specific directions from the owners; but the owners are very helpful so this isn't a problem.

Best family trip in a long time!
May 23, 2014
We were just so pleased from the moment we drove in and saw our name on the placard in front of our sweet little cottage to the minute we left when the housekeeper was already waiting to clean up our unit for the next arrival. This place is well maintained and clean and the way it is set up is perfect for a family vacation. We were also permitted to bring out Golden Retriever which just added to the experience. My kids had a blast jumping off the pier and kayaking (provided by Alamar) and my wife enjoyed the covered patio and the hammocks while daddy and the kids (and the dog) ran around and played on the nice little beach. I will certainly be back as soon as they have time available (the doggie cottage is very popular) and highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an easy relaxing vacation in the Keys!
First time at the keys

Very relaxing place, nice and clean and the owners were so pleasant and helpful.
Tybee Island, GA
January 9, 2014
This was our first trip to the Keys. We had a wonderful time exploring the islands and staying at this cottage. It is a great location, it's quiet, and it has all you would want from a vacation in the Keys. We woke everyday to a peaceful morning on the kayaks that come with the property and we ended each day with a wonderful sunset on the pier. Loved it!
September 15, 2013
The cottage was nice and clean with all the amenities needed. The tropical plants surrounding the cottage were beautiful and very interesting. It is just a short walk down to the bay where there is a dock you can swim from or use the kayaks. The best part was the amazing sunsets with all the colors. We did have a difficult time finding the place as there was no sign. Find Al's carpets and it is behind there.

I stayed at this beach house and got married here. It was a beautiful property, had kayaks we took out and even children's bed and toys which was great for my son. Our wedding was beautiful and the landlord even let us cut some flowers and palm fronds to use. My only complaint would be the hot tub jets didn't work (but someone came to fix it), and the fire alarms went off several times one night for no apparent reason. Overall it was great and I plan to revisit in the future!
Gone to Paradise and never going Home!
April 29, 2013
The owners made us feel like family...... The entire property was stunning, filled with the most beautiful tropical plants, gorgeous flowers and delicious limes. Our adorable cottage was cozy, clean and well stocked. ( I loved the quilted manatee and LOVE LOVE LOVE the sea turtle in the shower ) We have a family with two small children and it had everything we could need! Looking out every window was like looking into your own private oasis. My girls loved playing on the beach and with all the toy...What a bonus with the kayaks....Spent evening enjoying the breeze on the dock while my husband played his guitar! We did not want to leave and our weekend getaway truly needed to be longer, Next Trip! Thank you so very much and we can't wait to come back...

the very best vacation
April 9, 2013
The time spent in this beautiful Keys location was just unbeliveable. The cottage was perfect in every way. A short walk to breakfast every morning was very nice, althought the kitchen in the cottage was well equiped a good walk to breakfast got me going. The property was located in such a way it made getting around Key Largo and other keys convient. The best is always for last and that is seeing the grorgous sunsets on the pier made for a perfect day every day.

A wonderful stay!

My husband and i just returned from our stay in Travenier! This cottage was very clean well equipt with a tropical decor. The grounds were beautiful and looked just like the pics on line. Its located in a great location for activities such as frishing trips, swimming with dolphins and nice restauants. We grilled outside our cottage spending time on the dock fishing and snorkeling.Bill and Bonnie were wonderful treating us like friends. We are looking forward to returning.

Special Birthday Celebration
January 26, 2013
This beach front cottage was exactly what I had dreamed it would be and proved to be that and much more. A trip to Florida was my dream as I wanted to celebrate my 80th Birthday digging my toes into the white beach sand on a Florida beach And on Sunday, January 20th that special dream was realized in Key Largo along with my husband and several loved ones This turned out to be the most memorable birthday of my life with many, many wonderful memories created. On each of my future birthdays this very special 80th birthday will always be remembered and cherished.

My mom was so pleased and said , she and my dad would stay there again. So would Scott and I . thanks Martha ! A lot of great memories !!! Hope to return again sometime with more family members to enjoy this wonderful place.

My favorite spot was the hammock. :)
January 15, 2013
Tastefully decorated, comfy, extremely clean cottage with all anemities. Was my home away from home for 4 days. I hated to leave. The owner assures an inviting atmosphere where you can feel welcome and relax. The grounds are well-kept, nice to have row boat and kayaks on hand, but for those with small kids, there is plenty to do at the shoreline and enjoy the views in the large garden. Definitely can recommend this property and the associated villa or guesthouse! I plan to be back!
Alamar on the Bay
January 8, 2013
We had a great experience with the cottage and the owner. The property was what we expected. The wireless internet was a little weak, but that was not a major problem. everything worked in the cottage except the DVD player. We reported this issue to Martha and she said she would get it taken care of. We would stay there again if we return to the Key Largo area.
We love this cottage
December 1, 2012
We (4 adults) had a great time at this cottage. It is big enough, very clean and the furniture is in a good condition. The private dock is a fantastic place to do things like fishing, relaxing, water sports or our all favorite watch the sunset! Our nicest experience was the meeting with manatees. They came to drink fresh water, They swam very close of us, we stood beside them and could touch them! For dinner we recommend the Restaurant Mrs Mac's Kitchen. It is in walking distance from this property. We were every evening there, you will get good food and drinks. Dear Martha, thank you one more time and we will come back!
A great place to relax
July 23, 2012
We stayed in the bigger cottage, it was very well equipped. Very comfortable, great location. The dock was a terrific place to watch the sunsets and chat with the other guests. The use of the kayaks was a big plus, We would stay here again when we have the chance, our hostess was helpful and friendly. A number of good places to eat were within walking distance, Highly recomend this spot.

Cottage and property was very charming and well maintained. Lots of privacy. Lots of amenities, ie. kayaks, fishing gear, floats....Was so nice to sit on dock and see many types of birds, and be visited by manatees! Will definatley keep this place in our file for future vacations. Only down side was some clouds and rain, but did manage to see a beautiful sunset on our las night there.

I attended a reunion at this property and I cannot imagine any property layout that is better suited.The water access is perfect and the cottage is well-appointed. Very friendly and attentive owner. It is centrally located to good restaurants as well. Mature lush landscaoing made is cool and tropical in every way!
October 11, 2011
We stayed here last year for spring break with our two teenage daughters. It was truly the BEST and most relaxing vacation we've ever had. Martha and her husband are GREAT folks. The cottage was immaculate. We loved everything about the place and would stay again in a heartbeat.
The cottage at Alamar
July 24, 2011
We had a wonderful time staying at the cottage. It was a very relaxing place with a great dock that was ideal for watching sunsets, snorkeling and kayaking. They had 3 kayaks free to use . The mosquitos were pretty fierce, but they sprayed a couple of times while we were there to keep it under control. Just keep bug repellant handy. The kitchen was well stocked for a rental as was the linens. The bathrooms were nice and looked recently updated. It had a nice tv with satellite and DVD player. There are lots of local places to eat and if you enjoy outdoor activities and enjoy relaxing, this is a great place to go. The furniture was a little shabby but for a beach rental, not out of line and the master bedroom mattress could have been a little more comfortable. Otherwise, very happy and would return. The other small house for rental on this property had a hot tub, which this one didn't. Would maybe have rented the other one had we known. The manger Martha and her husband were extremely nice to deal with.

When I first arrived I found the property to be exactly what I thought it would & should be, a remote and well maintained cottage right on the Bay with all amenities. The second day after arrival I was met by Martha and was impressed by the fact she made it a point to come by and personally introduce herself and welcomed me and my out of town guests. Both Martha & Al the owner's, are "hands on" which shows they care about the integrity of the people who are sharing their world. By the way, there are several cottages & houses to choose from on this private tropical compound, the next time I will be staying in the front Big House with a sweeping shaded front porch w/ ceiling fans that Martha was gracious enough to personally show me and my guests. It is truly a fabulous property that exudes luxury and is fully appointed for the discriminating holiday traveler. Thank you, Martha & Al.

Great Dock Sunsets and Tropical Feel
December 1, 2010
Retreat-like surroundings in a tropical compound that runs down to the water. Beach is small but sunsets from the dock are stunning. We enjoyed kayaking, exploring butterfly gardens, and hammock lazing. Some may find the smaller cottage a bit close to the commercial highway, but it's peaceful at night. Our dogs loved the freedom to run about - a rarity in the Keys. We would return.
Alamar on the bay
May 4, 2010
We stayed for 3 nights in the first week in may. The weather was beautiful and the cottage was secluded. The house was nice bu the pictures in the add was misleading regarding how close the cottage is to the beach. There are two other houses on the property. This cottage was about 60 yards from the ocean. The view fr the sock was gorgeous and the property was pristine. The garden made you feel like there was a surrounding jungle. Very nice owners but the directions were a bi misleading... The propert is directly next to a sherwin Williams. Jacuzzi was hot. There is a sunken boat by the second buoy to the left if you look out at the dock (or snorkelers). Look up Caribbean watersports for parasailing!! They were really lenient about check out times. I would stay again.
April 13, 2010
We had a great time. The cottage was spacious, nicely furnished, and plenty of amenities were provided. Martha was very helpful in providing us with a list of things to do and see during our stay. When we asked if there was a cooler we could pack a lunch for day trips, Martha deliered on to us within a few hours. I would highly recommend staying at the cottage at Alamar on the Bay.

The family vacation was great. The cottage was neat and clean. We ate on the outdoor patio most days. The boys liked fishing from the dock and my wife enjoyed he sunsets from there. We kayaked to a small island and saw birds and an assortment of fish in the clear water. We will be back.
April 27, 2009
Our family had a wonderful holiday. There was so much to do,my brother liked fishing on the dock with fishing gear that was provided. I liked the kayaks,the water was so clear I watched the fish on the bottom. The sunsets from the beach were the best.
Boating amenities oversold.
March 17, 2009
The owners Al and Martha molified my disappointment. I was looking for a place where I could launch and moor my 20-foot fishing boat for ocean side fishing. Admittedly, booking a bay side place for this wasn't the best plan I ever had. I talked to Martha at length before booking about the boat situation and was disappointed on arrival. We arrived at night and the tight quarters made maneuvering the truck and trailer into the place a real bear. Next morning Al offered his forklift and personally helped with the launching, otherwise it would have been impossible to back the boat and trailer to the ramp hooked to my truck. The "nearby" cut to the ocean was a good 45 minute boat trip. Other than my disappointment about the boat arrangements, Alamar by the Bay is a nice place. There are three sites, make sure you get the mainhouse by the water (we didn't), the other two are some distance toward US 1 and you get quite a bit of road noise.
September 17, 2008
Our vacation was fantastic due to the relaxing atmosphere of the Alamar. The cottage was very clean, had every convenience and the beach/dock was beautiful. The manatees even greeted us on our first day. The only negative was that they were doing work one of the days and we didn't feel comfortable hanging out at the dock. Other then that small inconvenience, it was a perfect vacation. Thank you!!!
great get away
May 4, 2008
as a family of six we enjoyed the relaxing dockside,the canoes and fishing that the children used daily. the wonderful sunsets which we enjoyed with the new friends that we meet while staying here. martha and caretaker are very friendly.
Sail away to Key Largo...
October 16, 2007
Wonderful property right on the bay just across the street from the ocean. Walking distance to Mrs. Mac's Kitchen the best breakfast in toen. Boat rentals and tours right down the road.Three houses are one this property but all of them have a view of the water. Lush surroundings and everything you need for a relaxing getaway.
