Although we at RentTheKeys do offer a variety of rentals without ocean views, we can’t help but think that the views are what makes a Florida vacation shine brighter. Your entire getaway revolves around the scent, the sight, and the serenity of the waters, adding another layer to the simple beauty of your trip and when you are enjoying the view from one of our sanctuaries, the comforts and luxuries provided provide a sumptuous backdrop of wonderful. This guide to our Florida Keys rentals with ocean views will offer just a sample of what you can expect—to experience it all you need to be here in person!
On Siesta Key
The ocean view rentals we want to discuss today are the homes we offer on Siesta Key. Some are duplexes, others are standalone homes and all offer space and luxury in addition to those sea views. Siesta Key holds a special place in our hearts, even as we do offer properties on other keys and the reason for its hold on us is its beaches. The sand is whiter than other sands, softer and finer than other sands, due to its composition. Because while most sand is created from coral that has been crushed into fine granules, ours has made the trip from the Appalachian mountains, worn down to the tiniest crystals that will feel silky between your toes.
Perfect for Large Traveling Groups
Our duplexes offer identical floor plans and the same number of bedrooms and baths (3 and 3.5) and could be the perfect rental for the larger traveling groups. Have you always dreamed of a beach wedding and want to celebrate with your closest friends and family? These spacious escapes can be rented together and provide room for up to 16 guests, which we think is the ideal size for a destination wedding. And when you rent both sides of the same house, everyone can play together, dine together, celebrate together and then separate to their own corners of paradise to enjoy some blessedly beautiful alone time.
A Tour of Beauty
Now that you have an idea of why Siesta Key is so special and why our RentTheKeys ocean view escapes could be perfect for large traveling parties, it is time to open the front doors and begin your tour of what could arguably be described as the most beautiful homes you have ever explored. Our living rooms are designed to be lived in, offering high ceilings and windows that let in the light and views. Living rooms with plush sofas and chairs, state-of-the-art televisions, and ceiling fans that although quiet, provide an extra layer of cool that will be most appreciated on the hottest days of the summer. Not every space we offer features a beachy theme, but most will, and often the shelves and cabinets found in the living rooms will offer books, movies, and board games to be used by guests on a rainy night. (Don’t worry, the rains usually leave as fast as they arrive. We are known as the Sunshine State, after all!)
The Center of Family Gatherings
Just as in your own home, the dining rooms in our open concept floor plans are often the center of all family gatherings. These are the rooms where families and friends gather together to devour a big meal, to laugh and tell family stories that seem to get funnier with each re-telling, and to explore life unplugged. Perhaps your favorite moments of vacation will take place in the dining rooms as you teach your children that board games can bring you together and there is always room for healthy competition in any family. Or maybe, for the early risers in our group, your most memorable moments will be the morning ones when you sit at that table, a freshly brewed cup of coffee (or tea) in hand, watching the world come awake all around you and listening to the sounds of family as they wake up in the rooms of your vacation escape.
The Heart of the Home
People as a whole have a complicated relationship with kitchens, especially on vacation. Signifying chores and drudgery to some and warmth, comfort, and freedom of expression to others, the kitchen will always be the heart of the home, no matter how you feel about the work that goes on inside. High-end appliances, custom cabinetry, and stone countertops are what you might expect to see in our RentTheKeys kitchens and breakfast bars fronted with barstools where family can sit and chat with the cook of the day or children can enjoy a bowl of cereal before the fun begins in earnest are more ways we show our love for our guests.
The Views You Will Never Forget
Your choice of an ocean view home is one choice you will never regret, and the views, visible from most windows throughout this space, will never be forgotten. Watch the sun set or rise from lounge chairs that are lined up on patios like the tin soldiers our grandfathers often played with in their youth. Raise a toast to Mother Nature’s finest performance from those perches every night of your stay, except on Sunday. Sundays are set aside for the Siesta Key Drum Circle, where music, dance, and the companionship of new friends from all over the world add a special touch to the spectacular fire in the sky. There are no pools in these homes, but do you really need the pool when the Gulf of Mexico is your backyard and white sand beaches are your sandbox? You will find barbecues in most of our ocean view rentals, ensuring that you can stay outside soaking in the serenity of the sea for longer periods of time.
The Nights Filled with Happy Dreams
After the sun has set, the last sip of margarita has been enjoyed, and your eyelids are fighting a losing battle trying to stay open, it will be time to retreat to our bedrooms. Shut the door to the rest of the world and for a moment, listen to the sweet sound of silence, perhaps punctuated with the muted roar of waves crashing against sandy shores. Every bedroom offers something different and in our ocean view homes, many of the rooms will provide access to private patios and balconies, or at the very least, oversized windows through which you will never tire of seeing the views that lie just beyond. Primary suites will offer en suite baths, some with deep soaking tubs adding another layer of relaxation to your getaway, and most bedrooms will be equipped with another state-of-the-art television. Sleep is deep and dreams are happy in these serene spaces, ensuring that you will awaken each morning feeling rested and ready to face a new day of Florida adventures.
