Renting a house in the Florida Keys is the best way for a large family or group to have a great experience in the keys. If you’re lucky enough to find something with water access, you won’t regret shelling out the extra dough for a Florida Keys house rental. While this is usually a more expensive way to see the keys, the benefits are obvious:

  • More room to spread out and relax
  • Dock space to bring along your boat
  • Enjoy margaritas with your temporary neighbors who can probably guide you towards some ‘local secrets’ that you’d miss staying at a resort
  • Save some money on eating out by cooking your meals out on the grill

Many times, you’ll be able to work out a deal with the house owner for discounts on return visits. Most of the people who rent houses in the keys will give a pretty good deal to a trustworthy renter who comes back regularly (say, every summer).
