You’ll want to create an itinerary to ensure that you have the chance to see everything you want to see before you leave. You also want to do some research to find the best rentals in the Keys. While there are many places to stay in Islamorada, nothing beats a luxury vacation home rental.


Check out the following tips to help you plan the best Keys vacation and find the perfect luxury vacation home rental in Islamorada.

Things to Consider for Your Next Vacation Rental

Know the Best Route to Get There

When it comes to getting to Islamorada, you have several transportation options available. One of the quickest ways is to take a flight from a Florida airport, particularly Miami or Fort Lauderdale. If you would rather take the scenic route, consider a drive over the Overseas Highway which stretches 113 miles from Florida’s mainland into the Keys.


Plan Outdoor Activities

The Florida Keys are known to have some of the best diving and snorkeling adventures in the world. If you’re planning a visit to Islamorada, consider setting aside some time to experience these underwater adventures for yourself. Divers in the area encounter a wide range of wildlife, such as barracudas, angelfish, moray eels, and damselfish. A diving and snorkeling tour is a safe and fun way to explore the beautiful Florida waters.

Consider Location for Your Rental

Location makes a big difference when choosing a vacation home to rent. Ideally, you want to be close to local restaurants and attractions. You’ll also want a vacation home that is near the water, such as a beachfront home, bay rental, or waterway rental. Access to the coastline is also a plus.


Opt for a Luxury Vacation Home

Not all vacation homes are made equal. If you’re going to be staying in the Florida Keys, you’ll want to enjoy an upscale experience in a luxury vacation home. Luxury vacation homes are equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, premium furnishings, and state-of-the-art technology. They also offer a range of amenities, such as pools, heated jacuzzi tubs, gated residences, and access to white-sand beaches and day docks.

Create a List of Must-See Attractions

There are likely some exciting attractions that you’ll want to visit during your time in the Florida Keys. Create a list of these attractions based on priority to ensure that you don’t overlook one. Some of the top attractions in Islamorada include the Theater of the Sea, the Diving Museum, the Florida Keys History and Discovery Center, and Long Key State Park.
