Key West is an island rich in history and lore, historically home to artists, writers, and treasure seekers, a refuge for the famous, and a Mecca for sun and fun seekers. Key West vacation rentals range from gracious historic Conch homes with high ceilings, wraparound balconies, and meticulously carved railings to brand new condos overlooking the breathtaking vista of the ocean.
Key West is an experience like no other. Local hospitality is legendary and, unlike many resort towns, unique local businesses thrive and prosper for generations. Local cuisine is a mixture of Caribbean, Cuban, and the freshest of fresh seafood. For a real treat, try the key lime pie or visit El Siboney for delicious, authentic Cuban food.
Whole family fun might include Key West attractions like a deep sea fishing trip, snorkeling on the reef, renting mopeds, scooters or odd little two-person vehicles to navigate the narrow streets of Old Town, or even sightseeing on the Conch Train. Visit the Key West Aquarium or Turtle Kraals to get personal with the local ocean life or Mel Fisher’s Treasure Salvors Museum to see real treasure rescued from the ocean depths. Buy the most comfortable handmade sandals you’ll ever own at Kino’s and visit the Audubon or Hemingway houses. And you can’t miss Mallory Square at sunset, a daily festival with street performers and artists to entertain and delight with a stunning ocean sunset backdrop.
Wherever you choose to stay, all Key West rentals are infused with the irresistible charm of the islands, the tang of the salt air, and the nagging desire to leave your old life and sink your toes permanently in the warm beach sands. Legend has it that if you get Key West sand in your shoes, you’ll always come back.
