Janet and Frank and family

We enjoyed a family time with 3 of the homes for all of our family. Our grandchildren range from 9 to 1 year old and each one can enjoy the many activities available at Alligator Reef. The adults take advantage of the kayaks, dock time, pool fun, ball games and relaxing. We walk/drive to Theater of the Sea each year, and this year some of us swam with the dolphins! Any need is addressed by Brandi, Pete or another responsive person. We are very pleased with our yearly vacation and plan to return next year. Thank you for providing a clean and spacious home (3 homes) for our gathering, and for the new fire pit! We could see the stars twinkle while our S’mores roasted on the embers.

We had a wonderful time with 14 of our family in 3 units. The new fire pit was a big hit! S’mores and stories go well with sparks and flames. And the stars twinkle more brightly in Islamorada✨ Thank you, Brandi and Pete especially The Cornelius Family

My husband and I got married here last summer. The staff was so accommodating and inviting and they went the extra mile the day of the wedding to make sure everything was clean and ready for the event. Couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, perfect and private spot for us to spend our wedding week.

“Fun had by all!”

Doug W Township, Michigan

Three families (total of 12 people, teenagers to parents in the 50’s) occupied one three bedroom and one two bedroom. The homes and furnishings were in decent shape but some updating could really make this place outstanding.
We experienced a couple minor maintenance issues which were promptly addressed by the management company.
The location is very quiet and secluded. We enjoyed the pool area as well as the dock and kayaks. The location offers quick access to all that Islamorada and the Keys have to offer.
If we go back to Islamorada with a group like this we would most likely stay here again.

Doug W,
Thank you for your review Doug. We update different things every year at the Alligator Reef property. Next time your group returns to Islamorada you will notice the great changes. We appreciate your business and hope to see you and your family again very soon!


“Beautiful relaxing Waterfront View”

Amanda B

We stayed at the Alligator Reef Luxury estates as a group of 18 people. This was a business gathering to bring our team together from all over the world, and this estate couldn’t have been more perfect. The houses were maintained very well and anything you could think you would need was available. The property owners were very helpful and provided us wit more than we could have asked for. If you are in need of a beautiful, waterfront property to stay at with a large group then this location is a MUST!

“Perfect Wedding Week”

We wanted a simple wedding and then a week of fun with family and friends. Alligator Reef exceeded our expectations. We had a wedding ceremony with 25 guests under the palm trees, making an aisle out of coconuts found on the property. Most of us stayed at the four houses on the property very comfortably. Easy to keep clean, washers and dryers were great. Houses were private enough to find solitude if desired. But the best was the outdoor kitchen areas off of the swimming pools – so perfect for entertaining, lounging, snacking and big dinners. Couple of things to know: no beach and swimming from the property in the ocean isn’t really an option. The pool was really hot and it took us 2 days to figure out someone had cranked the heater in July. Any issues we had were looked into promptly. We rented two boats that were slipped next door – a short easy walk. There’s a mooring buoy at the house but the rental companies frowned on using the buoy for overnight docking.
The staff at Freewheeler were helpful with logistics on the boats and the wedding.

“Awesome Location”

We had a great stay. The home was very clean and everything in it looked new. The beds all slept well. The location was wonderful. It has several cool places to eat nearby. We keep our boat at the marina close by so it was within walking distance. Our veiw was nice from the porch and even better when we walked to the dock. I have stayed several times in the Islamorada area and would have to say this place rates up near the top.
