Our Happy in the Keys story starts with a vacation to the Florida Keys in December of 2009. Within days, my husband and I simply fell in love with the islands – contracting what the locals call the “Keys Disease.” We extended our stay, extended our stay again and then decided to look at property. We bought a sweet older beach house in Key Colony Beach for our family to enjoy. The more we spent time in the Keys, the more we loved it and felt right at home.
Our job as we see it, is to make sure that the vacation rental homes our guests rent from us are exceptional in every way and exceed all expectations.
So come on down and join our happy family of vacation enthusiasts in the Florida Keys. We know you will love it like we do and hope that our story will become your story as you make one of our special residences your home away from home and return to it time after time, and more and more in the years ahead.
Peace, love and vacations,
Martie, and Layla, the HappyintheKeys hunting poodle
In our goal to provide more and more assistance and tools for you in planning and experiencing the best vacation ever, we have expanded our website and the information on it to provide recommendations and information that can truly make your life easier as you prepare for your trip and while you are here.
We also have launched a blog that will discuss what to do while you are in the Keys, about where to purchase some of our home decor and furnishings, about where to eat or shop while you are here and what to order ahead of time, oh and even what kind of bait is best off the docks!
Things to ponder, things to do, things to love, and things to savor are a few of our topics. We think you will not only enjoy the blog posts, but you can actually use them before and after your trip in a meaningful way. You will probably want to share them as well. We have active Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest pages that are fun, inspiring and also very useful.
We have a Facebook Group and I urge you to join where you can post questions or comments and recommendations. The website, the blog, the social media accounts all help us connect in our love for vacations and the Florida Keys.
