Weather The weather in the Florida Keys is very moderate due to the ocean breezes that are always blowing. It's around 80 degrees during the day and 73 at night. The Keys have 2 seasons, the dry season which is their winter and the rainy season which happens in the summer which means on any given day in the summer you can expect short, daily summer showers so plan your day at the beach accordingly.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this condo for the month of December 2016. The condo was spacious and in very good condition. It was well equipped and comfortable. However, it was the view from the balcony that made it exceptional. It faces south to the ocean and we could watch both the sunrise and sunset over the glorious water. Also, beautiful Smathers beach is just across the road! We had a wonderful time watching weddings on the beach. The complex is large, friendly and well-managed. The pools are immaculate and the grounds are beautiful. We didn't have a car for the month but instead took the handy local bus which stops just outside. It was an easy trip to everything on the island. Dave was a perfect owner to deal with. He is fair, honest and responsive. He genuinely cared about us and our holiday and promptly returned our deposit after departure. Overall, it was truly a magical trip for us and we would not hesitate to return here as it is our paradise found!
