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 minutes, and so friendly and helpful.
There were a few mosquitos at night but luckily there is a deck off every room in the house and always a great breeze and they never really bothered us.
I cannot say enough about how beautiful, relaxing and enjoyable it was. The kitchen is amazing and so fun to cook in. We were actually sad anytime we had to leave and made it a point to be back for sunset every night. Unbelievable!!!! Thank you Melody Key.
