If there's one thing in my life that's missing; It's the time I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear waters; There's lots of those friendly people
Showin me ways to go; And I never want to lose your inspiration

We stayed at The Southernmost because of the beach. If we were doing it again, I would stay in the heart of Duval and drive out to the beaches on the southside for the odd day. But then we are city people. Lots to do around Duval et al.

For the fun of it...Keith

Well, we pored over the suggestions so far and based on our reserarch we were prepared to make a reservation at Curry Mansion starting next April 1, 2014 right at the start of the reduced season rates. DW checked yesterday to confirm what the rates were for April 2014 and "Steve" confirmed the rates would be the same as this year. So we called today to make a reservation and "same Steve" advises the rates next year are increased 23.4% plus the reduced seasonal rates don't start until May 1, 2014.

I guess we are back to square 1 looking for decent rate.
My motto is.... "a dollar saved is better than a dollar earned. I don't pay tax on the dollar I saved."

Not sure how long you're staying or how the rates might compare with what you're seeing for hotels or b&bs, but we enjoyed very much staying in condo complex in Truman Annex (I think it was Shipyard). They may only be weekly rentals. Easy walk over to Duvall St. and the rest of old town - short bike ride to nearby Fort Zachary Taylor beach - definitely one of the nicer beaches on Key West. Rented bikes for the week and only used the car for couple of grocery runs to Publix or whatever. I think we used Compass Realty Key West vacation rental homes and condos Truman Annex, Vacation rentals Old Town Key West, waterfront vacation homes but you could also try VRBO. Good luck.
