Enjoy a romantic escape for two at this luxury penthouse apartment in Key West, the southernmost island in the Florida Keys. Penthouse R19 benefits from a shared pool for those days when you feel like doing as little as possible. The apartment has a private hot tub, deck, and balcony, so you have a choice of where to enjoy an evening cocktail. It is just a mile from Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park to the west and two miles from Smathers Beach to the east.
Key West is a sub-tropical paradise known for its mix of history, vibrant nightlife, and laid back vibe. The apartment is conveniently located in Duval Square in the heart of the old town.
The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum and Nancy Forrester’s Secret Garden, a sanctuary for rescued parrots, are both worth a visit. To get a real feel for this little island, there are a variety of tours you can take, whether you’re into food, ghosts, or culture. If you love the water, you can go snorkeling in the Dry Tortugas National Park, dolphin watching, or deep-sea fishing.
The sun sets on the west side of the island, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Gulf of Mexico. One of the best spots to watch it sink beneath the horizon is Mallory Square, where locals and tourists gather for the nightly sun celebration – a festival complete with live music and street performers.
Of course, you can’t leave the island without trying the legendary Key Lime Pie and Sarabeth’s has some of the best.
