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 to go off of the island, Mike (the island manager) is seriously just a phone call away and always willing to help out. This was truly an extraordinary vacation and we can't wait to go back.
