First I have to disclose that we did not stay there...only checked it out for a possible future trip. As mentioned by another reviewer...WOW! The place is fabulous. Private, excellently maintained, and all rooms are beautiful. The views and accommodations are absolutely fantastic. One thing that a prior reviewer mentioned was the number of floors...there is now an elevator to... More

We stayed on Melody Key for the last week in July during the mini lobster season. Wow! It was by far one of the best family trips we have ever had. The island, house and 360 degree views were breath taking. The service was impeccable. Anytime we called for a ride to or from the island Mike was there within... More

We stayed on Melody Key Island (it is not a hotel) for 2 weeks in June to celebrate a special occasion. It is a small house on a private island. The website boasts that they can arrange any catering, and the website together with emails before booking confirm that you will have a 'full concierge service'. It is important to... More

Melody Key is truly the perfect island getaway. Warm breezes, gorgeous views in every direction, and total privacy while still having all modern amenities including wireless internet. The most difficult thing about being there is trying to decide which balcony to sit on while you have your morning coffee (or mai tai later in the day). If you do want... More

You simply cannot know what freedom feels like until you are inhabiting your own private island. Melody Key is your own personal utopian experience... that you wouldn't believe! We spent our 5 year anniversary there with our closest friends and all of us felt that we could now die happy having satiated ourselves on sun, drink, and indulgence. We spent... More

Melody Key (formerly Money Key) is truley a slice of heaven! The feeling of tranquility sets in almost immediately. Accessed only by private boat, you are the only one on the island, leaving your stress and chaos of every day life at the dock. I visited with my 6 year old son, brother, father and his girlfriend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Melody Key is a private island accessed only by boat from Summerland Key. The Florida Keys are totally unique and what you find here you will not see anywhere else in the United States. The Keys are famous for their natural beauty and nature: One hundred and twenty miles of overseas highway connects more than 1700 islands and are there to be explored.However when all you want to do is relax: Melody Key Private Island is the perfect place to put your feet up, lay back and observe the beautiful sunset from one of the several balconies which circumference the house.Why not sit watching the sun setting with a cocktail, feast on fresh seafood fished from the surrounding waters, or just recline on a hammock suspended between two palm trees, simply unwinding and letting go with the outgoing tide. You will be, after all, on Melody Island time.When the heat gets too much, be assured that cooling off in the sea water is only a footstep away. Or perhaps have a refreshing dip in your private plunge pool.If you want to explore the neighbouring waters why not take out one of the kayaks or take a sail in our 14ft Catamaran.On Melody Key Island, the temperature is around 70 degrees farenheit (21 degrees celsuis) in January, rising to 84 degrees farenheit (29 degrees) in July.Melody Key, located near Key West, Florida is totally off the grid with solar inverter and a on-demand muted generator. Water is amply made through a desalination system.The heated pool, Jacuzzi, central air-conditioning, satellite TV, great sound system, Wi-Fi, Washer-Dryer, 5-burner pro Grill and Kayaks are some of the conveniences, but if you require anything else, it can be arranged.Transportation is provided to and from the Island 24/7 (stay in Key West as late as you like!). The parking area is the closest point of land to Melody Key, located one mile east on Summerland Key with parking for 5 cars.Communication with caretaker can be made through VHF radio or cell phone (caretaker lives only 5 minutes away) and monitors 24/7. ... more   less
