2 br/2 ba, Marathon or Islamorada - w/ beach?!

I've spent many hours looking for the right place for husband to fish and college girls to enjoy beach-like area while I relax! Need 2 br/2 ba/kitchen and want to be in Marathon or Islamorada areas 6 nts starting next weekend. Prefer to be accessible to other restaurants, etc. as opposed to a setting such as Hawk's Cay (from my reading it's set apart from everything.)

It would be easier to find something with 7 nights if you're looking for a private rental. If not - take a look at Continental Inn in Key Colony Beach.

Hawks Cay is only 5 miles from things. If you are looking for a big resort look at Tranquility Bay.

If it is in your budget and available, The Moorings has beautiful cottages including some 2/2. You can walk to many good restaurants from there, and the beach is beautiful.

Thanks for your replies! Moorings is indeed too much $ for this trip. Going back and forth between TB and Hawks Cay. Have read through traveladvisor for days and reviews seem to be comparable. Wish I could find hubby a place to fish outside the room, but seems bridges must be best when we are between party boat outings.

Try Key colonybeach private rentals. Therey will recommend somewhere for you to stay if you contact owners - we have paid cheaply for 10 days on waterfront with access to club cabanc which is a private club with pool and beach. All the charters land near 4th steet so plaenty of fishing pals in Sparky'sd next door.

Don't go to far over to 10th - 15th street - it is a long walk back from the bars .

Good luck

Many times its cheaper to rent a duplex for a week (7 nights) than to go with a resort for 6 nights. If you rent in Key Colony Beach, be sure to ask if they have Cabana Club access. CC is beach front with a large pool, bar & grill (also a fishing pier for hubby). We have had good luck with VRBO and these Realtors:

I'm curious to know where you ended up staying. We are going in August and looking intensely now for a rental unit.
