Designed mostly for couples, this quintessentially beautiful property will feel like you’re own luxurious paradise.

After the sun goes down, there are restaurants and shops nearby to keep you busy- if your toes ever get tired of the sand.

a hammock on a beachMonroe County, Florida

There are plenty of great beach activities to keep you occupied in the Florida Keys, like Dolphin watching- but you’ll have to peel the cool cucumber off your eyelids first. This is the perfect spot for lazing in the sand. When you step out of the house, you’ll immediately hit sandy beach, which is nothing short of incredible. It’s always warm in the Florida Keys, so this is a great look for a little winter sun. Who doesn’t love a tan?

  1. The Monroe County one is $354 a night just looked at it for the Florida Keys……. please recheck these prices, as that is a significant difference……

    1. All Airbnb prices vary by date. Just because it’s not available during your date doesn’t mean it’s not accurate. Plus, when you go to price it out, the price often drops.
