Upon waking in the morning we hear the murmuring of tropical birds , feel the gentle sea breezes and the fragrance of jasmine. When we go out from the apartment we can see the sea across the street and catch the sun rise if we wake early. Relax with a drink on the south facing balcony that looks out onto a spacious enclosed garden with palm trees, bougainvillaea and 2 pools. Walk across the street to Smathers Beach for swimming and and snorkeling. Later take a stroll in Old Town or visit Fort Taylor Park and its beautiful beaches. In the evening pick up some fresh shrimp to prepare a gourmet meal in our full kitchen with the freshest seafood on the east coast. Or if you prefer head for downtown where there are literally dozens of sophisticated and alluring restaurants. Key West is the ultimate winter beach destination.
