Travel during the holidays is an age-old tradition. We gather our families around us and celebrate in new ways as we explore new places, and even as Halloween is not one of the holidays that is normally considered a great one to travel during, we at RentTheKeys think it is the perfect time to explore the beauty of Florida. The crowds lessen during this season, the lines at restaurants shorten, and warm temperatures and sunny skies ensure that the trick or treaters in your traveling party won’t have to cover their costumes with winter coats to stay warm as they would in your cold weather hometown! Traveling to the Keys is always a good idea, but your adventures will shine brighter over the spookiest holiday of the year, especially when you choose our RentTheKeys holiday hideaways to reside within. This guide to Halloween in the Keys spent in the welcoming embrace of our Florida Keys Halloween rentals will give you and your family a sneak peek into an idyllic vacation you will wish never had to end.
All the Comforts of Home
Halloween is known for being a holiday that keeps you off guard and feeling more than a little uneasy, but our vacation homes and condos are nothing but comfortable. From the outside they blend into their surroundings, offering colorful gardens and wide expanses of green grass visitors can’t help but feel welcomed when they pull up out front for the first time. Take a moment before unlocking the front door to look around, feeling tropical breezes tousle your hair and hearing the sounds of families enjoying life: distant laughter of children riding their bikes, the soft roar of a lawnmower, the excited barks of a neighbor’s dog welcoming home their family. Yes, you could hear and feel pretty much the same thing at home, but knowing there are no accompanying chores, no honey do list waiting, will bring the first of many more moments of joy.
Every home we offer is different, but when you step inside—no matter whether you chose a condo on Siesta Key, a full-sized home on the canals in Cape Coral, a cottage on the beach of Anna Maria Island—the noises in your brain will quiet and a sense of well-being and peace will take over your soul. And these are just your first minutes in paradise. Isn’t it wonderful that there is so much more to look forward to! Our living rooms offer the perfect combination of comfort, soft sectionals, overstuffed chairs, and state of the art televisions, making these spaces the primary hang out spot during your stay. Binge watch classic horror movies as you snack on Halloween candy from your kiddos trick-or-treating bags (garnered during early trick-or-treating events and festivals) and sip mulled wine prepared in our fully equipped kitchens.
The dining rooms of our holiday hideaways are where you can gather with your family devouring Halloween-themed meals, play board games that you may find on the shelves and in cabinets in the living room, or simply sit with a cup of coffee in the morning before the rest of the family awakens, staring out the windows and daydreaming about all the fun you are having during this adventure. The quiet moments early in the day will be as memorable as the loud and raucous ones during this beautiful family vacation. Kitchens with updated appliances and spacious breakfast bars are the heart of the home where the coffee is always brewing, beverages are perfectly chilled, and dad jokes are what’s for dessert!
Entertainment and Relaxation
Comfort matters, but having fun and relaxing can be equally important, and our properties offer many ways to play and relax. Homes with screened-in lanais may be anchored by crystal-clear pools that can be heated during these cooler days of the year, (Temps could drop all the way down to the high 70s during a cold snap at Halloween!) and if you still feel chilled, some of our properties may even provide bubbling hot tubs that will add warmth and romance to your getaway. Condos offer access to community amenities, including game rooms, pools, hot tubs, and fitness centers, ensuring that every moment will be filled with fun. Our waterfront homes may provide private docks and the opportunity to spend every moment enjoying the serenity of the sea and neighborhoods with wide sidewalks and/or walking trails will be where sunset walks are enjoyed. Beach homes and cottages ensure may offer sea-themed décor, mimicking the beach and waters that are located just beyond the boundaries of the property.
Where the Ghosts Are Not
A haunted house is one of the holiday’s greatest joys, but no one wants to sleep in one, and so we promise there will be no ghosts here! Sleep deep and enjoy the happiest of dreams in bedrooms that are quiet and serene and without any rattling chains! Offering a range of beds from twins for the littles to king for adults who understand the pleasure of space, the linens topping each mattress will be silky soft. Some rooms may have televisions to help ease the transition between wide awake and deep asleep, others may provide cushioned headboards that provide the perfect backdrop for long nights spent reading just one more chapter. Sunlight streams in through large windows, but feel free to draw curtains, blinds, or shades tightly closed before you fall asleep each night, ensuring that the morning light doesn’t wake you before you are ready! When you do awaken, however, be prepared to feel refreshed and recharged and ready to face new Florida adventures on these brand-new days.
Amenities You Will Love in Our Florida Keys Halloween Rentals
We often talk about the glamorous part of vacation rentals, the private pools and deep soaking tubs, or the Smart televisions offering pictures so clear you feel as if you are a part of the action on the screen, but there are other details, while not as exciting, which you would miss if they weren’t included. Laundry rooms or laundry closets enable travelers to pack light and save room for the treasures they find in local shops. When you open the cabinet door in the fully equipped kitchens, you will find enough plates, bowls, and glasses for every member of your traveling party. And because we work differently in this new world we all live in now, high-speed internet will let guests take part in virtual meetings, perhaps enabling you to extend your vacation for a few more days. We know that every detail is the most important, and if your expectations aren’t just met but exceeded, we consider that a failure!
Every day will be your favorite day when you choose RentTheKeys for your Florida Keys Halloween hideaway, and although we apologize in advance for spoiling you to all other vacation experiences, we don’t think you will mind too much as you relax, play, and explore all the extras we have to offer. Reserve your favorite escape today!
