I booked this room on New Years Eve after finding out my office was closed that Monday. Our goal was to get something cute, clean, and most importantly... available.
Via Trip Advisor, I found this little spot with cottage style rooms and a private beach. My thought after seeing the photos was that it would be comfortable enough for a last minute trip from Miami. My girlfriend and I were prepared for your typical Key West eclectic motel style accommodations... WRONG. This place is PERFECT!
When we arrived, the charm was overwhelming.. I felt immediately transported into a little slice of heaven.
Every single detail is on point from the brand name clock radio to the flat screen tv, to the fixtures in the bathroom. There are great books to read if you forget to bring your own and a white chocolate conch shell on the bed. The kayaks are free of charge, the outdoor furniture is perfect, and there's a private boat for hire if you feel like diving. Everywhere you turn, there was some kind of hand picked accessory that made you smile.
As a manufacturer in the Hospitality Industry, I can tell you that the Island Bay Resort passes every standard of quality. With nothing to focus on but my beautiful girlfriend, I couldn't have asked for anything better.
