At home, you wouldn’t dare dream of sleeping with your windows open. Too dangerous and not only because it’s Halloween.
But what if you were on vacation, and that Atlantic breeze was teasing you with its sea-tinged perfume? Live a little.
Let the shutters open. Enjoy your Key West vacation rentals the way they were meant to be experienced: with no itinerary, no rules and definitely on island time.
The Little Palm vacation rental featured, a cottage with a mini kitchen, refrigerator and hardwood canopy, invites the outdoors in with doors that swing open to nature and a private outdoor shower. The cottage keeps things intimate with a hot tub and tiki hut with room enough for two, a lovely retreat for couples thirsty to waste away in Margaritaville.
A few doors down, wander to Ernest Hemingway’s house or stroll down Duval Street, the most friendly street in Key West.
With Fantasy Fest (a weeklong celebration of booze and costumes akin to Mardi Gras) over, it’s likely to be a lot more chill with all the Lady Gaga wannabes gone, and pure relaxation on the agenda.
Because everyone knows that after the tourists leave, you’re more likely to sample the city at the pace of a true local. And not be spotted for your tacky Hawaiian shirt.

Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
