Welcome to Sunset Key Cottages

Discover our Key West resort's bougainvillea-laced cottages, an exclusive beach, idyllic spa and luscious waterfront dining. Sunset Key Cottages is located on gorgeous Sunset Key, a secluded 27-acre island seven minutes by launch from Key West. Majestically located 90 nautical miles from the Cuban coast and 150 miles from Miami, Sunset Key leads into the tropics as the gateway to the Islands of Caribbean.

Sunset Key’s twenty-seven lush, tropical acres include private homes and two, three and four bedroom cottages with pastel-colored wood finishes and Victorian-style tin roofs that capture the casual Key West lifestyle with tranquility and charm. Take pleasure in the panoramic views of the turquoise blue waters or gardens filled with jasmine scented courtyards, bright colored hibiscus and frangipanis.

Why, darling, I don’t live at all when I’m not with you.
— Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms



Surrender yourself to the ease of island living. Every detail of the clapboard cottages captures the casual Key West lifestyle with tranquility and charm, from the pastel-colored wood finishes to the Victorian-style tin roofs.

Explore the vibrant and colorful town of Key West

Key West is often described as quirky, eclectic, lush, colorful and sometimes downright odd. To capture the character of this southernmost place, pay a visit to several iconic spots. Be warned though – legend has it that many of the locals were once visitors who, once they felt the island’s languid tropical breezes and enjoyed its laidback vibe, decided to stay – permanently.
