Also try Conch Key Cottages (search Yahoo, you'll find them)....it is a private key with private cottages. We went there on our Honeymoon in '99. It is about in the middle of the Keys, which works out nice for day trips either direction

My suggestion is look for a place somewhere south of Islamorada and north of Key West. If you stay near Key West try the Rusty Anchor for dinner, not fancy, but they have the best seafood in the Keys. Why don't you try renting, look on www.vrbo.com lots of great deals here in every price range.

I was just down that way on business and made sure to take note of the Conch Key Cottages because of the setting and location. I think that would be the perfect place for an anniversary and probably where I'll spend mine next year.

On Little Torch Key - Little Palm Island. You have to want to spend penty of money however! It's just a bit north of Key West.

You could also goto Hawks Cay at about 1/4 the cost in Marathon.

A final choice could be Cheeca Lodge.

Have nice time.

I love the Cheeca Lodge. It is one of the very finest resorts I have ever had the pleasure to visit. I would not, however, describe the accommodations at Cheeca as "secluded ... getaway ... cottages". The beach is also not that great.

Kevin, I've been to Little Palm twice and it's really neat but VERY small. Last time
I had a NWML agent talk my ear off for 2 days. Cheeca Lodge would be my choice, updated, lots to do, reasonable for a wealthy man like yourself......

Try this thread, http://outdoorsbest.zeroforum.com/zerothread?id=100907. If you can stand the crowd, I like Hawks Cay. Conch Key cottages are nice, and there are several south of Islamorada on the Gulf side are nice too, Conch Key is near the Wreck and Galley sports bar, no AC but good food.
I love the Keys and spend an inordant amount of time therebut do take MONEY.

What's up Fred? I think Little Palm Island is exactly what I'm looking for, but $$$$$$ I'm pretty damn lucky to be able to fish in Biloxi for a week every year during my anniversary. I think if I take her to LPI, I'll be able to go to Biloxi again next year! Thanks for all the help guys.

At Little Palm Island, you will be paying $1500 per night with tips and taxes. You can stay at Conch Key for a WEEK for the cost of just one night at Little Palm. Is it that much nicer??

Not cheap, but one of the finest places to stay. It is private and secluded. www.seabirdkey.com

It is north of Marathon. I've been there 4 or 5 times, and always a treat.

No air conditioning?
They have to be kidding.
