"Casa Dorado" is an exceptional privately owned single family home located directly on Florida Bay on Lower Matecumbe Key in Islamorada. The house is named after the owners' favorite species of fish, the Dolphinfish, also known as Dorado in Spanish speaking coastal areas. With the green roof and yellow stucco exterior, they felt like Casa Dorado was a fitting name for this Florida Keys home.
In 2014 when the current owners purchased this property they completely renovated the 1966 house turning it into a breathtaking waterfront home with quality furnishings and timeless decor. Inside, this home now offers spacious living and dining areas, three master suites each with king beds and en-suite baths and two sitting areas - one with a queen sleeper sofa. Taking advantage of the setting they greatly enhanced the water views from the interior living areas. This home offers unobstructed water views! People come from all over the world to experience the incredibly gorgeous sunsets over Florida Bay. You will be able to personally experience them directly from this property. Outside, they added a custom heated freeform pool and outdoor entertainment area. The dock area and fish cleaning station have also been updated. You must provide the fish…but you may be able to catch something delicious to eat directly from the fishing pier.
The interior décor is reminiscent of a Cape Cod beach cottage with white tongue and groove wood paneling and a nautical theme with tropical colors throughout. You will find the décor not only pleasing to the eye but very comfortable and functional. The kitchen has all new custom cabinets, granite counters, updated stainless steel appliances, including a wine chiller and a custom designed built-in casual dining area. Formal dining is located in the converted screened balcony which is now an amazing sunroom overlooking the waterfront. A spacious sitting room located in the front of the home just off the kitchen offers a lovely area for the family to gather and watch TV or review the day's events and plan tomorrows. The "L" shaped sectional sofa and two chairs provide plenty of seating. Built in cabinets and a large flat screen TV adds to the charm and functionality of this area.
If you cannot stay for a full month, we may be able to help you. Local restrictions prohibit us from renting this property more than once in a 28 day period. The owner may be willing to rent this home for less than a full month and block the remaining days. Give us a call for details.
This property is professionally managed by Keys Holiday Rentals.
