Conch Key Cottages was quiet, pleasant, and provided kayaks, barbecues, and a pool for the guests. The beach is on a very shallow bay -- too shallow to actually swim there. You can drive down the road 15mi to Sombrero Beach which is great. They provide continental breakfast, including oranges with a juicer. The woman who runs the office is very pleasant and helpful. This is a great base from which to explore the keys and to visit a number of spots for meals, snorkeling, diving, fishing, or whatever you like. It is also far enough from the main road that you get no road noise.
“Great, peaceful place to relax”
Quiet lodge on a tiny key allowed us to totally decompress from our normal lives. The room was really nicely done, much cleaner and updated than I even expected from the pictures online. There was so much to like about the place; free breakfast brought to your door, free single/double kayaks any time you want, really comfortable king bed, attractive new beach-side furniture, strong AC, even free WiFi if you want. Those freebies saved us at least $60-80/day. Plus our sand dollar room was as low as most lesser-looking motels in the area to begin with. I highly recommend the Conch Key Cottages for anybody.
“Will definetly be going back for future trips!”
I went there for my honeymoon and it was worth it! Stayed in the Sand Dollar Room. Dont worry about being late, they have a late check in box outside. When you come into your room, gourmet chocolates are waiting for you, along with complimentary bottles of water and juicing oranges (there is an electric juicer in the kitchen cabinet). the bed is very comfortable! There's a complimentary grill. And don't worry about charcoal, lighter fluid, or matches. they are all provided! A complimentary 2 person kayak is included with your stay. The beach there is a sunning beach, the water is too shallow to swim. The pool was very nice. It goes to 5 ft. There is a boat dock and a tiki area for guests to congregate at.This is where you will find the ice machine. There are loungers and hammocks everywhere. It's a definite welcome to show they want you to relax! Breakfast time at the cottages is nice. There is a cute little wooden carved basket with a bagel, crossaunt, and a muffin for each person inculded with cream cheese, jelly, coffee, and tea every morning for breakfast brought to your door between 8-8:30 am! There is a lending library of DVD's to chose from if you want to stay in and watch a movie. The cable there is basic, and there is no phone in the rooms. The cottages are 1 hour away from Key west. If you want to go out to eat, Marathon Key is less than 10 minutes away. if you do anything watch a sunset! Look up at the stars! Definetly worth the price for the quiet location!
“Pleasant few days, will go back”
Nice, casual cottages at water's edge right off Hwy. 1 Fresh pastries and juice oranges delivered every monring with coffee. The full kitchen with dishwasher and large refrigerater plus grill (with charcoal) reduced eating out. Small pool and no swimming beach. We really enjoyed use of free kayaks. Away from hustle but close enough for convenience. Large flat screen TV w/DVD used one rainy day. Office has some DVDs, games and small library.
“Old Florida Charm”
The staff at Conch Key Cottages was incredible! Helpful, friendly and very accomodating. The cottages near the water are old but they are filled with charm. For those who remember staying in a cottage or cabin on the lake as a child you will relive those memories. The facility is very quiet and perfect for families or couples who want a nice relaxing getaway. The extra perks (daily continental breakfast basket, except Sundays, and the free Kayak availablity is just another added benefit.
“It was all I hoped for!”
I had not been back to the Keys for a few years and the Cottages brought back all that I remembered that was important and unique about the area. The charm and natural setting was refreshing when compared to the plastic world offered at most hotels. I would look forward to returning there someday and I hope it can remain the same in a changing world.
“Can't wait to go back”
We were very happy with the cottage we stayed in and the staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. We will definitely stay there agian when in the Florida Keys and would recommend the resort to friends and family.
“A hidden gem in Marathon!”
The Conch Key Cottages were perfect for what we wanted! We celebrated our 10yr. Anniversary in this hidden charm in Marathon. We arrived to the hotel with a complete guide to all of the local activities & restaraunts & the distances from. We were greeted by adirondack seat with a bucket & shovel & our own little grill outside our door. The room had everything we needed including fresh flowers,chocolates, oranges, & waters & a daily small breakfast of fresh baked goods ariving at our door. A hammock lies lazily every cottage away,the pool is small yet for this small piece of heaven, it was refreshing & equipped with very comfortable lounge floats. Free use of kyaks was one of my favorites, but if you are a boater, the boat dock is fully equipped with ice a step away with everything including a Tiki hut with lounges after a long fishing day! Would recommend this to anyone, it may not be a high end resort, but it's VERY affordable for all the charm & special details that remind you what a keys vacation should feel like!
“A Perfect Weekend Getaway”
I surprised my husband with a weekend getaway for his birthday. Our stay at Conch Key Cottages was everything we could have asked for. The staff was very helpful and friendly and our cottage was charming - very rustic and reminiscent of a fifties summer home. The beach was only steps away with comfortable chaises and hammocks. Kayaks were available for water exploration. Inside, our kitchen was fully equipped and the bed was comfy. Other activities and restaurants were only a short drive away. In short, we had a great time and can't wait to go back again.
“Great place to stay. Great price.”
Everyone was very friendly. When we checked in, we told them we wanted to get married, they gave us a name to call. This was Sunday night. We were married on the beach right at Conch Cottage, on Tuesday night. The other guests were our wittnesses. Everyone was so happy for us. I will be back again. Thank you for a great time and wonderful memories.
