We first learned of Sunset Key a couple of years ago while dining at Latitudes with friends. If you are not familiar, Sunset Key is a beautiful little island that is a short 5 minute ferry ride from the main land of Key West. The island has beautiful private beaches, tennis courts, pools, and the view from Latitudes restaurant is absolutely breathtaking! We immediately fell in love and decided to rent a home on the island (December 2014) with our two teenage daughters. The home was beautiful and private and it was only a 3 minute walk to the ferry. The wonderful thing about Sunset Key is that it is beautiful, quiet and relaxing but if it's excitement that you are looking for, you can get all the excitement that you need just a 5 minute ferry ride away on Duval Street! We really enjoyed the shopping and bars on Duval but were happy to return to our little piece of heaven on Sunset Key at the end of the day. Initially, we were a little concerned that the ferry ride would become an inconvenience but we quickly realized that the ferry runs 24 hours a day and every 30 minutes! Oh! and did I mention that it's only 5 minutes from dock to dock?? It always seemed to be pulling into the dock as we walked down and the staff was very friendly. I highly recommend this property and all that it has to offer. We had a wonderful vacation and hope to visit again soon!
The title says it all...this property is absolutely magnificent! My husband and I had the most amazing vacation! Beautiful accommodations, private beach, pool, best restaurant on key west within walking distance, tennis courts & more! We didn't want to leave and will absolutely go back!
