Halfway between Miami and Key West, 18 cottages sit on this 18-acre resort that used to be a coconut plantation. The one- to three- bedroom cottages have fully equipped kitchens, wireless Internet access, and are only steps from the beach. Adirondack chairs and hammocks throughout the property will have parents relaxing while the kids can play in the heated, lap pool, tennis courts or use the stand-up paddleboards, kayaks or bicycles onsite.

Beautiful gardens, quiet and peaceful. Fantastic beach and friendly staff. The houses are charming and instantly relaxing.
Big thank you to Lindsey and the rest of the team who really went out of their way to make it an unforgettable trip.
Me and my husband stayed at the Moorings last week. We came all over from Brazil just to spent some vacation time at it. This time, we choose the Maroni Villa and seriously, this place is just like heaven on earth. The villa was beautiful, had an amazing beach/sea view and it is perfect for a couple looking for some romance and spending some time alone. The hotel itself, its’s spectacular! We took tons of pictures because anywhere you look at, deserve a photo to stay in the memory (and lots likes on the social medias!). The staff is nice and kind, the nature that surrounds the hotel is amazing and beautifully disposed. But the best part of staying at this hotel was a boat trip that they offered for us. Our captain, Xavier, is a super nice and lovely gentleman. He took us to do some snorkerkling and fishing. We have catch 3 fishes, that later he cleaned for us so we could take to a restaurant to prepare it and it was freshly delicious. Xavier provided us with lots of learnings and informations about Islamorada and fishes. He is a real gem, such a nice and honest man! And going offshore and seeing all that marine wildlife was an unforgettable experience! We spent all day at the beach, at the pool. Or laying on the hammocks for hours or just seated at the porch not believing how we were extremely blessed to know this place. It all felt like a dream. I do not remember feeling so happy and relaxed in my life. I left already wanting to come back. Hope to see you soon, Moorings Village!
