Relaxing Vacation Homes in Sunny Key West

Key West is a city and island that is part of a string of islands called the Florida Keys which sit just south of mainland Florida. The island offers many types of vacation rentals including houses located in downtown and historic districts as well as condos located near the ocean. Many of these available rentals are pet-friendly and offer air conditioning, hot tubs and outdoor grill areas.

Beaches

There are multiple beaches accessible to the public on Key West, including:

  • Broken Glass Beach
  • Simonton Street Beach
  • Fort Zachary Taylor Beach
  • Higg’s Beach
  • Smathers Beach
  • Rest Beach
  • Dog Beach
  • South Beach

The majority of the beaches are located on the southern side of the island and offer man-made and naturally created beach options. Dog Beach is pet friendly while Fort Zachary Taylor, Higg’s and Smathers beaches all offer public restrooms. Fort Zachary Taylor Beach is part of the larger Fort Zachary Taylor Park, which is a popular spot for sunset BBQs.

Historic Old Town

Located on the western side of the island, Old Town offers an experience rich in history and breathtaking architecture. The district is comprised of preserved homes dating back to the 17th century, many of which are available as vacation rentals. Old Town is also home to Duval Street which runs through the historic Downtown area. Duval Street is host to many famous eateries such as Sloppy Joe’s, Margaritaville and The Bull and Whistle.

Museums & Landmarks

Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum

One of the most-visited sites on the island is the Ernest Hemingway Home. Once home to author Ernest Hemingway, the museum now serves as a memorial to the author and his writings that were inspired by the island. The museum offers daily tours of the yellow, two-story house and its gardens.

Audubon House and Tropical Gardens

Another popular museum is the Audubon House and Tropical Gardens. Although Captain John Geiger built the house, the museum is named for John Audubon, a famous ornithologist whose drawings are showcased in the gallery. The home, the outdoor kitchen and the gardens on the property are available to tour by the public on a daily basis.

Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage Museum

Founded by the famed treasure hunter, Mel Fisher, the Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage Museum offers visitors the chance to see artifacts taken from actual shipwrecks. The artifacts are accompanied with information surrounding their discovery and origin, creating a well-rounded story that entertains as well as educates. The museum is open to the public seven days a week.

Best Time to Visit the Island

Key West offers a sunny, relaxing setting all year long as the temperature stays within a similar range regardless of the season. During the summer months, the temperatures stay in the upper 80s. The winter months bring an average high temperature in the mid-70s. If you’d like to avoid the daily morning showers of the summer months, then visit the island in the drier months from November to April.

How to Get to Key West

Though Key West is separated from mainland Florida by the Gulf of Mexico, it can still be accessed by car by way of the Overseas Highway. If you’re flying into Miami, you can hire a private car or use a rental car to make the trip. There are also shuttles available that operate from Miami and Fort Lauderdale airports to Key West. The island can be accessed directly by plane too. The Key West International Airport is located on the section of the island called New Town and operates year-round.

                                                              My wife and I have been to Key West about 10 times... we have stayed at all the big resorts... the last 3 times we have stayed at the Stock Island Marina on the Boatels... a different one each time... we love it there... the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful... Nice and quite... you can only have so much of Duvall street... $20 cab ride you can be in the middle of it all... we rent a moped to get around to the beach and grocery store... with the food trailer and bar you really wouldn't have to leave the marina !!! lol

                                                              Very nice place, very clean. Had all the room we needed. Also a very convenient location. Nice to have a garage to park in. The pool was great. Had a nice outdoor space and balcony off the bedroom. Extra supples were there too, ie paper towels, toilet paper, cleaners. Would go back to the same place any time.
