The Moorings Village Resort, Islamorada, Florida

Not only do you get a private bungalow with kitchen and washer/dryer, but also you step outside onto 1,100 feet of private beachfront on the Florida Keys’ Islamorada. The former coconut plantation has been transformed into a white-sand, uber-luxe paradise with 18 cottages and houses.

Field trip: Grab a bucket of fish and feed the tarpon at Robbie’s Marina, then rent a kayak and paddle 20 minutes to Indian Key.

Night out: You don’t have to go far for the best dining options. For high-end, find Pierre’s Restaurant in a two-story plantation house; for more casual, head next door to Morada Bay Beach Café.

Rates: from $250/night (cottages) up to $10,500/week (houses); 305/664-4708 or themooringsvillage.com
