🌸 There’s lots of reasons to skip the hotel and rent a home in Key West instead. Perhaps one of our favorite reasons is the access to a full kitchen. 🌴 Don’t underestimate what a difference it makes to be able to wake up and brew your own coffee without having to wait for room service. Or fix a quick snack before heading to the beach. Or heat up some leftovers from your favorite Key West restaurant. 🐬 There’s no doubt about it— the kitchen is the MVP of your Key West rental home.
