A piece of peace in the Keys...ahhhh.



Indeed...There is a little hidden jewel on the island of islamorada

~ halfway between key Largo and Key West~

The Moorings Village tries to recreate a bit of what mass development with its concrete high rises, noise and neon signs have taken away.

The owners recognize that Peace is becoming scarce....and they are trying to preserve it on their 18 acres of tropical heaven.


Eighteen restored 1930s cottages some newly built to look and feel old

are discreetly hidden on what was originally a coconut plantation estate.

The cottages are all self contained with kitchens, french doors and wraparound verandas.

Old black and white photographs and faded navigation charts hang on the walls...


idealic white sanded beaches frame the resort's 18 acres


The cottages exist within the verdant canopy of palms and bouganvillea
and ginger

affording more privacy...more nature.


The massuese hut....

it IS still a resort, after all


Let your mind wander....


your soul soothe...
Find this bit of paradise here.
Unless I find it first
