that perfect, private getaway? Check out our new discovery, "Secret Key" for a
intimate vacation that you will never forget.
During October's trip to the Florida Keys, we found a private,
9-acre island with beach house you can rent by the week. Thanks to Host Couple,
Gary & Terrie for the tip.
You can have the run of the place which
includes a perfect Key West-style beach house that can sleep up to 10 total,
but we recommend only 3 couples at the most. Complete with all the amenities
you would expect in a private home, the extra element you'll enjoy is
privacy....other than an occasional fisherman boating by on the way to his next
big catch. Travelling from the dock to the island takes about 5-10 minutes by
boat at slow speed. The 9-acre island is accessible by flying into the
Marathon, Florida Airport.
You can also drive to Marathon on
U.S.highway # 1 about one hour+ south by car from Miami's International
Airport. In addition to the home and island, the package includes a power boat
which gives you complete freedom to come and go as you please, day or night.
Numerous restaurants and bistros are close by and accessible by your boat.
Rental rates for the island, home and boat range from about
$5,000-$6,000/week total, depending upon the season. Rates subject to change
without notice. Food and drink are extra and can be arranged in advance with
The island was rented out virtually every week the past
twelve months, so plan ahead. If you have a date in mind for next year, let us
know. Send us an E Mail with the
subject line: "Secret Key".
We'll publish more information on this
resort shortly... stay tuned. In the meantime, check out these photos we
recently took of Secret Key.
