“Alamar on the Bay”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2016

we were very pleased with our stay at Alamar. We actually were the only ones on the property that weekend. It was quiet and very tranquil. I recommend this hidden little gem. We brought our two dogs and on Saturday rode down to the Islandmorada Fish house resturant, which was dog friendly.

“Nice dog friendly cottage”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2016

Cottage was clean and comfortable. While not on the water, it was a short walk to the dock. Enjoyed kayaking with our 2 dogs and relaxing on the patio. Unfortunately, we had to leave early due to hurricane Matthew. Also a plus was that the other 2 houses on the property were vacant so we had choice of kayaks and had the dock to ourselves and didn't have to worry about dogs bothering anyone.

Alamar was the finishing touch to the perfect vacation. While there was so much to do in the keys. My family and I agree some of our favorite memories were made back at the house. My husband and I enjoyed the mornings sipping our coffee on the dock enjoying the schools of fish swimming by. One morning we were pleasantly surprised with a visit by manatees. The mom and her calf were the highlight of our stay. Our girls loved all the new interesting creatures of the land and sea. From all the butterflies that frequented the gardens that Martha planted, the multitude of fish starfish and conch inhabiting the dock area to the light show at night with a star lit sky above to the luminescent displays of marine life below. I can't say enough about our stay. Having such a great place to share and educate our girls about all the strange and beautiful wonders of our oceans. Thank you Martha and Al for sharing your home with us.

Comfortable and cozy cottage for a laid back stay in Paradise. We loved everything about it. Seeing manatees off the dock, grilling fish for dinner, morning coffee beside the sea, kayaking: a perfect Keys stay. Location is great as you can easily access the rest of the Keys or quickly get back to Miami when it is time to leave. The only thing wrong was that our stay was too short. We will come back for a longer visit soon!

“Great Place!”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2016

The only thing I would change is the stairway up to the front door. I would put a gate on that side. It would be much more convienient for your pets to let them out and they could go right down in the yard.

“Nice Little Cottage”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2016

Very nice cozy cottage. We enjoyed kayaking with the kayaks provided. We cooked our own meals using the kitchen items that were available. Comfy bed and nice shower.

“Awesome island home hidden in plain sight”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2015

Alamar is a terrific place to stay and enjoy all the best Key Largo gas to offer. We enjoyed the clear warm water of the Bayside every day of our stay from the luxury of our private dock. Even though the house is hidden from the bustle of US1, everything you need is close. You can even take a complimentary kayak to a perfect restaurant close by. What can be more relaxing? We will definitely come back!

“Perfect Getaway”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2015

The description and pictures accurately portrayed the cottage. We really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of Alamar. This is the perfect destination to take a family.

“Best rental in the keys”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2015

Words do not do Almar justice. We had a great week a wonderful home away from home and met two of the nicest people on the planet Al and Martha.

“how to enjoy the keys 101”

Reviewed 3 Jun 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!
