Roam+Board :: Postcard Inn At Holiday Isle

[trip style = beach + sun]

{Editor’s Note: We haven't been to this newly revamped hotel, but this Florida Keys property is on our list.}

What Transplant a whimsical Nantucket cottage onto a prime, shore-front plot along a hundred mile chain of small islands, and the result is the Postcard Inn At Holiday Isle. With a beachy colour scheme---headboards and benches wrapped in rope, whitewashed wood plank feature walls, driftwood-base lamps---this property re-imagines the family vacation destination without skimping on design.

Fifteen acres of private beach, two pools, fishing, diving, snorkeling, water sports and the world famous onsite "Rumrunner" tiki bar make this trip style = beach + sun spring break spot a win-win with every member of the fam.

Where Islamorada, Florida Keys, about a 1.5 hour drive from the Miami, Fort Lauderdale or Key West airports.

When December to May is high season with agreeable temperatures and droves of winter escapists. June through October are the transitional months with a rainier forecast, which also happens to coincide with hurricane season. November and May are the travel sweet spot: warm temperatures and fewer crowds.

Who/Why You want a Caribbean experience---balmy weather, laid back locals, world-class above- and below-surface water activities----without traveling too far or leaving the US.

Cost From $230/night in high season. If you're traveling as a family, ask for a room with mini fridge and microwave. A $15 per room/night resort fee covers self-parking, wifi, etc...
