Which Key?

Hi all -

We are looking for a vacation rental for next winter, likely early January 2014 - but we're having a hard time deciding which Key to stay on. We visited Key Largo and Key West last winter but our experience outside of that is limited.

We are looking for a private home vs. condo, we would ideally like to be within walking distance to a couple of good restaurants and a grocery store (i.e. we don't want to have to drive everywhere). Other than that, we're hoping for some sunshine and relaxation.

Any suggestions?

So you don't want to go back to KW?

I would look at places in Marathon and Islamorada

We liked Key West, but it was chaotic when we were there in March, and it's the most expensive place for rentals (some of the rentals are our budget for the whole winter)!

What about Cudjoe Key? Is there anything there, shops, restaurants?

Add Key Colony Beach to the above. (walking distance to restaurants and beach but not grocery store)

I love Cudjoe Key, stay there often. The house I stay at is within walking distance to Boondocks and Loe Key Tiki Bar. I believe there are a couple stores nearby also.
