The Florida Keys is a worthy destination for any boater, having plenty to offer those seeking adventure, relaxation or both. A boating mecca, the Keys provide anchorages, marinas and boater friendly hotels that offer dockage and a respite from an ocean voyage. For those boaters looking for something a little bit different and craving luxury, a private island resort adventure may just fit the bill. There is a world-class luxury resort island minutes from the fun and entertainment of Key West, offering every conceivable luxury with the privacy you can get only on an island.
Sunset Key Cottages Resort is located on seven acres of an island just 500 yards from Key West. This unique resort’s two, three and four bedroom cottages share the island with a few private homes. Each cottage has its own private wraparound veranda that beckons you to a relaxing view of the outside world. All cottages have stocked kitchens and the deluxe three bedroom oceanfront cottages have all bedrooms facing the ocean with stunning views.
Your day is started with a “Rise, Dine and Shine” breakfast basket with fresh fruits, muffins and croissants delivered to your door each morning. There is also the highly rated Latitudes Restaurant at the resort that offers fresh and varied cuisine along with views of the Gulf of Mexico and the legendary Key West sunsets. A full service spa is also available on the island along with a fitness room, relaxing beaches, a gradual entry pool with plenty of poolside lounging and two whirlpools, as well as access to all kinds of watersports. Once you are relaxed and refreshed you can take a ferry (available 24 hours) for the short ride to Key West and enjoy all the island has to offer, and then retreat back to your private island oasis knowing your boat is safe in the secure marina.
Although Sunset Key Cottages Resort does not have its own marina, boaters can dock at the Westin Key West Marina and be ferried over to the island on a Westin launch, available 24 hours. The 37-slip marina can accommodate boats and motor yachts from 25 feet to 200 feet with 30/50/100 amp service. Just one block from Duval Street, the central location couldn’t be better. As a marina guest, all the amenities of the Westin Key West are at your disposal but if you rent a cottage on Sunset Key then you will have 24 hour access to the mainland but can also enjoy all the luxuries of the resort island.
If boating and luxury are what you are seeking for a unique vacation, Sunset Key Cottages Resort is the place to stay. www.sunsetkeycottages.com
