This trip was exactly what we had hoped for, a little piece of "Caribbean" paradise...in the US.
We stayed in the two bedroom cottage and we loved it. Roomy and fully furnished. Huge wrap around porch with chairs, tables, rockers, ceiling fans and each bedroom has it's own little porch. If I were going to build a beach house, is what it would look like. Very comfortable beds, large showers, convection oven, stove top and Starbucks coffee in your room. They also deliver a little basket of breakfast goodies each morning. Concierge came by twice a day to check if we needed anything and gave free water and juice. Housekeeping was great, dusted, cleaned, even did the the dishes everyday.
The landscaping is lush and tropical....palm trees, coconut trees, Hibiscus flowers.
Expect little lizards running around, mostly Anolis.....they weren't bothersome though. Two resident Iguana's come out from time to time but, they keep to their own really. Some interesting birds and at night, a few tiny hermit crabs here and there.
The restaurant is fab! I had the crab stuffed scallops and the meal was very well thought out...many layers to the dish. Expect to pay for the fab...it's not cheap but, not unreasonable for what you get. The whole Key West area is more expensive than the mainland so, expect it. :-) We loved Sunset Key and hope to buy some property and build a beach home there or nearby. It's about a 4 min boat ride to island. Well worth it!!!!!
