Tropical Beach Vacation with Resort Amentities
Imagine your day starting with sipping coffee on the poolside veranda and taking a quiet stroll through the lush tropical gardens. Stop by our Tiki Bar to enjoy an afternoon snack of hotdogs and other lite fare. A popular activity is to rent a bike and ride along the endless miles of bicycle paths the Keys have to offer. You can even ride out on the old 7-mile bridge that spans the Gulf of Mexico & Atlantic Ocean to Pigeon Key, a railroad village filled with historic significance and locked in time to the turn of the century. Or just keep your afternoons free for a nap or lazing out on our small private sandy sunning beach, then witness a Keys' famous sunset.
