Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Florida is a year-round destination with balmy winters, but summers can be hot and humid. The best time to visit Florida is between March and May and in December when it is warm and sunny, before the weather begins to get too hot. Hurricanes and other less serious tropical storms can strike Florida any time in the summer up to the end of November, however the risk is greatest between August and October.

Situated on a sun-soaked island just off Key West, Sunset Key Cottages is a real undiscovered gem. With a number of beautifully decorated cottages and a peaceful private beach, the resort can be reached by a gentle five minute boat ride from the mainland.

Covering seven acres of glorious island landscape, Sunset Key Cottages is as pretty-as-a-postcard. This tranquil island escape just moments from the hustle and bustle of Key West makes for a relaxing few days in the sunshine. The cottages lie just off a private sandy beach, excellent for dipping your toes in when the mid-afternoon sun hits the shore.

Each cottage is beautifully decorated in bright maritime colors and many feature gorgeous oceanfront views. Mostly single-story, these cute white-clapboard cottages provide guests with a home-away-from-home, with a distinct beach-side feel. In the morning, guests will wake with radiant sunlight flooding into their room and an individual hand-packed breakfast basket on their doorstep featuring fresh fruit and oven-baked pastries. Once you're feeling refreshed, head down to the beach or outdoor swimming pool for a relaxing day of sun-soaking. Flipper's Pool Bar will keep the whole family from going hungry, with light lunches including fresh salads, grilled burgers and delicious fruit smoothies.

Spend the afternoon snorkeling among the Lower Keys, go deep-sea fishing for king-fish, tarpon and sailfish (you can even return to the resort where the chef will prepare your catch for dinner), or try your hand at para-sailing or kayaking. If you're spending time at the resort, make sure you don't miss the Ice Cream Man, who rides his bicycle to the poolside delivering delicious cold treats each day. Complimentary fruit skewers, popsicles and frozen grapes are also available for those making a splash. For a wonderfully romantic experience, enjoy a sunset sailing excursion to the surrounding islands or Tortuga National Park. Those wishing to rejuvenate after an adventure can visit the spa for an indulgent treatment in one of the serene treatment suites surrounded by tropical flora and fauna.

In the evenings, dine at Sunset Key Cottage's signature restaurant 'Latitude' for flavorful island dishes. Boasting stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico and a light ocean breeze, there is no better place to relax and unwind with your loved ones after a day under the sun. Anyone wishing to venture away from Sunset Key can take the short boat ride over to Key West and dine at one of the concierge's recommended restaurants. Ideal for family getaways, Sunset Key Cottages is sure to provide a spectacular Florida beach vacation on an idyllic island off the main destination of Key West.
