A Slice of Paradise - "Irish Ayes"
On numerous occasions my family and I have had the pleasure of enjoying a slice of paradise called Irish Ayes. We totally enjoy the peaceful, quiet neighborhood as well as the surrounding area. It is located within minutes of excellent fishing, boating, diving and snorkeling locations that both the expert and novice can thoroughly enjoy. On every occasion we have found the house to be immaculately clean and well stocked. The house and first floor apartment are laid out in such a way that, when traveling with guests, each has the ability to enjoy privacy of separate areas, including multiple decks. A favorite is the pool/spa area. It is ideally designed so that, at any one time, you can enjoy either the sun or shade while in the pool. Kathleen is the best! She supplies you with a comprehensive guide for the house, along with many suggestions for excellent dining, shopping, etc. any house issues were always dealt with promptly and professionally. I sincerely hope to return many times in the future. Donna F
What a great place to stay in Islamorada. Very well maintained, and super clean.location is perfect for restaurants and activities. The home is spacious and the apartment on the ground level allows for a nice separation of guests. How about 3 kitchens? The main kitchen was very well equipped. Best of all, an elevator! Great views of Florida Bay from the canal side decks. Best of all, Kathleen was super to work with. If you are into deserts, don't miss the fruit cobbler at MM88 restaurant. You will enjoy your stay at Irish Ayes, and will want to return. We did.
Spacious home, with great views, & a heated pool
Irish Ayes is a perfect home for large families or couples wanting to share a vacation home. The 4 king bedrooms are spacious, particularly the master bedroom on the top floor with his & her bathrooms, and decks on either side of the house. A separate apartment with a full kitchen and living area, houses the 4th bedroom. Separate, yet still easily accessibility to the main part of the house. A large porch off of the kitchen / living area is well equipped with a table and 8 chairs to go around it for relaxing or eating outdoors. There is also an elevator for going between floors which was wonderful for bringing groceries up to the main floor as well as our luggage when we arrived.
The heated pool is delightful to lounge around in as well as the hot tub. After a long day out on the water it is the perfect was to relax.
For the casual boater or avid firsherman, this house sits on a canal leading out to the Snake Creek which runs east & west between the Atlantic Ocean & the Gulf. It doesn�t get any easier than this to get to your destination by boat.
The owner, Kathleen Monahan, is wonderful to work with. She was helpful in advance of our coming to her home as well as while we were there. We highly recommend Irish Ayes!

Our first time at this property . We've been renting in Venetian shores for 30 plus years. Fabulous, clean, well equipped home. Great pool , down stairs apt., fish cleaning station, etc. We keep 2 boats and a locker with all of our personal belongings. As gourmet cooks, didn't need very much of our stored kitchen items. We have already booked for 2017!
My family and I rented this home for the month of November. Everything about this home is wonderful! The only regret I have is not bringing my elderly father along for the stay. This home has a new elevator and a ground floor bedroom suite that overlooks the canal. The main house has everything you would desire on both the upstairs suite and the main floor. It was nice to tie our boat up in front of the house. After a long day of fishing it was great to sit in the hot tub and take a swim. I have stayed in many homes throughout the Keys and I will say that hands down this was our best stay yet. Thank you again Kathleen!
My wife and I rented this house for the month of October. It was fantastic. The 3d floor master bedroom is huge. If we were not in the pool or in our boat, we were in this room. It had a separete bathroom for each of us, a separete kitchen and a 60 inch TV in a sitting area. It also had a large porch with a great view of open water.
The pool has a jacuzzi with a spillover into the main pool. It also has a covered area, which is great for the times when sitting in the sun is oppressive. The entire property is luzuriously landscaped.
We went to the Keys to relax and this was the perfect place to do it. We intend to go back next year. Islamorada has several good resturants and interesting shopping, all with a small town feel. It is easy to take a side trip to Key West or get a boat quickly to the ocean or the gulf.
The owner, Kathleen, was wonderful.It was an absolute pleasure working with her and getting to know her. I would not hesitate to recomend this property to others, so long as they don't prevent me from being able to rent it again in the future.
Rockstar - best place we've ever rented
The Captain's suit is to be seen to be believed.
This house has everything. I'd highly recommend it. It was 5-star accommodation for the 5 of us and cost less per person than if we'd stayed in a cheap motel.
First, the owner Kathleen is wonderful to work with. The house is magnificent with everything you could possibly need for a a relaxing stay in the keys. Easy access to the ocean and gulf fishing. The dock is large with plenty of room for your boat and good fishing too. With easy access from the elevator the third floor master bedroom is off the charts, you might not even leave there. Multiple kitchens makes for easy food preparation on all levels. The lower unit is unique as it can act as a separate "suite" if there is more than one couple. The pool area has great sun bathing as well as cover to get relief from the summer sun. We highly recommend this property and will be returning often.
