Good question! We researched what were the most popular amenities for vacation home in Key Colony Beach so we could buy the best vacation rental.
Number one! Swimming pools! Vacation renters won’t book a house unless there is a private pool. It’s doesn’t matter if it’s a saltwater swimming pool or not But in the winter months the snowbirds definitely what a heated pool!
Number two! A boat dock so they can bring their fishing boats or rent a boat while they’re down in the Keys. No self-respecting fisherman could come to the Florida Keys without a fishing trip too.
Amenities like fish cutting table and an ice machine will also be at the top of the list. But more important amenities like electricity at the dock and water to wash off the salt when they’re done for the day.
Also, you don’t want to forget about the depth of the water in the canals. You don’t want to rent a house on the wrong canal. Some canals are too shallow during low tide, so it depends on your draft. It would be terrible if you can’t get your boat out when you want too. And when you come back you would have to worry about how high the tide is again to return to the vacation rental. Such a pain!
And don’t forget about the length of the boat dock so it will fit your boat perfectly.
The last amenity for boat owners - no one thinks about is parking for the boat trailer. We have great parking for boat trailers, cars, and trucks at our vacation rentals.
Not all vacation rentals have enough parking for all the cars and trucks lease of all a boat trailer this is hard to fine.
The right accommodations. Enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone in your group coming to the vacation rental. Larger rental homes / villas book up fast since there aren’t as many large houses in the Keys. So, book early and buy big.
Location, location, location, a vacation rental on the beach or near the beach. The Florida Keys has more vacation rentals on the water/canals than on the beach. Beach houses are near the beach in walking distance are also in big demand.
Great amenities like BBQ grills, outdoor kitchens, Tiki Hut bars, free internet and streaming TV sets are a plus.
People are looking for a home-away from home with all the same essentials you could find in your own home. Fully stocked kitchen with pots, pans, skillets, all the dishes and utensils and serving bowls and plates too. Plenty of towels, and beach towels are also important in the Keys.
