Girl's Trip to the Florida Keys: Sunset Key Guest Cottages

 

I NEED time alone with just girlfriends!  Many of my best friends don't live near me, so sometimes we'll plan trips to catch up.  One of these trips was a summer visit to Key West, 90 miles from Cuba, with a swinging party scene.  We felt a little too old for that scene, so we rented bikes, had cold drinks by the pool, great dinners, and of course, talked!  When we started wilting under the August heat, we took a boat over to Sunset Key Guest Cottages for lunch.  The island of Sunset Key felt cooler and a million miles away from the spring break vibe of Key West.  Without leaving the U.S., it felt like we were on a private Caribbean island. 

A Guest CottageLunch was alfresco dining at its best, with an unbeatable view of the Gulf of Mexico as we enjoyed Sunset Key shrimp, crab cakes, salads and tropical fruit.  We had taken a vacation from our vacation, the frenetic pace of Key West, and it was just what we needed.

 

Each of the one to four bedroom cottages has amazing ocean views and I loved the brightly colored designs and home-away-from home feel. 

I'll definitely be going back to Sunset Key Guest Cottages for this view.
