About Melody Key
Melody Key is probably the best kept secret in the magnificent Florida Keys. The Florida Keys are totally unique and the locals are probably the friendliest on the planet. The Keys are famous for their natural beauty and nature: One hundred and thirteen miles of overseas highway connects 42 islands and there are hundreds more you can access by boat only and that are waiting to be explored.
Melody Key is among them and among the very few outer islands with accommodation. It is accessed from Summerland Key (Miles Marker 25 from Key West) where a parking lot with a dock awaits you. The villa of 3,500 sq.ft. is the largest on a private Florida Key island.
The island is totally off the grid, but you don’t have to give up any comfort as everything has been carefully thought out so there is no ‘roughing it’ on Melody Key. This spectacular private island retreat is equipped with the most advanced technology available including state-of-the-art solar system, with backup generator and a desalination system for self-sufficient green living.
This tropical retreat features an open floor plan with an abundance of large windows and French glass doors to bring the outside in. Offering three bedroom suites each with their own balconies for private moments overlooking the Ocean. The gourmet kitchen features wood cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel Viking appliances and panoramic Ocean views.
Dine al fresco from one of the many balconies while watching the sunset or go to the rooftop observation deck (‘Widows Walk’) for amazing views from every vantage point. This rare offering provides all the peace and tranquility that island living offers with the security of being only one half mile from shore.
The entire island consists of six acres including submerged land with three acres upland ground. If you’re looking for stunning beauty, don’t look any further. The turquoise waters that surround the island and the sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking.
