Key West vacation rentals, condo rentals, rental homes and Key West vacation rental companies
Our island offers many Key West vacation rentals for visitors to the Southernmost City, including top brand hotels, brand name & independent motels, intimate bed & breakfasts, inns & guesthouses, and Key West homes and condos available for rent as well. Visitors are advised to consider carefully what style of vacation they want to experience on our island, and consider the people who will be in their party.
Only a few of our excellent lodging establishments are actually located on or near the beach. Ours is a very small island, so even in the heart of Historic Old Town you are not far from a beach. Our Key West vacation rentals can be found in a variety of locations as well. Would a Key West condo rental near the beach suit your vacation needs? Or does a Key West house rental near Duval Street sound more appropriate?
Hotels and motels are best known for their standard amenities consistent with other cities such as on-site parking, swimming pools, in-room telephones, TV, and private bath. Inns are best known for their personalized service, complimentary breakfast, charming architecture, and convenient locations.
Key West house rentals allow some flexibility and independence in your vacation. The cost could be shared by two groups or families, and having your own kitchen helps to save on food costs. Key West condo rentals enjoy many of the same amenities as a hotel - pool, cleaning service, convenient location - as well as a kitchen to help save on food costs. Virtually all accommodations have air conditioning and ceiling fans.
The Historic District of Key West is Old Town, with narrow streets and limited parking. A few inns have on-site parking while others arrange for guest parking nearby, sometimes at a nominal charge. While hotels and motels located on the north side of the island, which we call New Town, have complimentary parking lots, guests should be aware that Old Town is not within walking distance. Reasonably priced shuttle service is available and some hotels provide complimentary guest transportation. Those who choose to drive downtown should be prepared to pay parking fees of $10 - $20 per day to park in Old Town.
If you are planning an extended stay in Paradise, you might consider contacting a Key West vacation rental company to see what might be available, perhaps a Key West condo rental, home or estate. Florida Keys vacation rentals are the way to go if you're seeking a more private and 'home away from home' type of accommodation.
The official motto of the City of Key West declares that we are all "One Human Family," and we are proud of our diversity. There are several Key West guesthouses that are exclusively for gay and/or lesbian visitors. Most welcome all visitors, and ours is an extremely Gay friendly town with a large gay and lesbian population.
Room rates vary throughout the year. They are generally higher from Christmas until the end of April, and lower during the summer months. Special events, such as our annual Fantasy Fest celebration and holiday weekends are generally the highest rates. Good deals can sometimes be found during fall and in early December, a time when the island is less crowded and our sunny days are less humid than in summer. All rooms are subject to State sales tax and Monroe County bed tax, currently a combined 11.5%.
