Located on little Conch Key between Islamorada and Marathon is the pleasant Bayview Inn and Marina.
We had a perfect large double queen bed room with a small kitchen and a dining table and chairs. The kitchen was equipped with a coffee maker, refrigerator, small 4 burner oven, microwave, dishes, silverware and pots and pans. We easily prepared 3 dinners here after purchasing fresh local seafood such as Key West pink shrimp and tuna.
I have saved the best for last and that is the view of the bay through our room's sliding glass doors. The room was directly on the marina with an lovely view of the water, then a colony of mangroves and then more expansive views of the whole bay. It was absolutely delightful watching the activities of many types of birds such as pelicans, comorants, gulls and terns as they went in and out of the close by mangroves.
The new owners (December 2016) are welcoming and accomodating. It is clear that they are constantly making improvements to their charming property.
While here be sure to drive 10 miles south to beautiful Sombrero Beach. Then come back to the Bayview Inn for cocktail hour at the pretty heated swimming pool with a soothing fountain.More
