Default FL Keys rental help.

We have 6 adults and 2 kids and just booked a quick 4 night trip to the Keys Jan 21-25.

Its last minute and we are having a hard time finding a rental property that rents for less than 7 days.

On the water would be nice. Middle to upper keys would also be nice.

Let me know if yall have any recommendations for some Texans. TIA

28 day rule for a lot of the keys. What type rental are you looking for?
Resort rooms shouldn't be too difficult. A house might be very difficult.

Best availability for less than 28 days will be Marathon and Key Colony Beach. Jan-Mar is high high season so that will make it even more difficult. Maybe try a resort vs house for only 4 nights.

I was specifically looking for upper/middle keys but just rented a house in Marathon for 5 days 2 week of Jan and agree there aren't many like that......I could have done 7 and found a number that were priced that way. Seems pickings were slim and the 5 days made it even harder. I purposefully avoided resorts/condos in case masks become required everywhere. Last thing I want to do is relax by the pool in the sunshine with a mask on.

Remember Marathon only allows weekly or Monthly vacation rental homes. Now there are some that are willing to break the rules and rent for less than a week, and they all get caught sooner or later. However Marathon can not make you as a renter stay the whole week, but they do require the owner to take those days off the calendar so it can not be re- rented again during that week. Hope that makes sense.

The Ranch House Motel in Marathon is super clean if you can't find anything else. It doesn't look like much but I'll take clean over fancy any day.

Thanks for all the great info.

It looks like we are going to resort rout.

Are there any other good ones we should know about? Hawks Cay seems to be number 1 on the list so far.

Oceanpointe suites. Condos at end of Key Largo, start of Tavernier. We just got back from staying there last week. Pretty decent place, rates are not bad either. Will do a single day or multiple days.

Marathon is 7 day min, required by law. Rent for 7, use 4 and leave it empty for 3 days, or... Look into hotel.
