The Duck Key Dilemma: to Villa or not to Villa?

April 16, 2018



First of all, choosing between one of our guest rooms or one of our Hawks Cay tropical villas is a Florida Keys win-win. We only have good choices. That being said, you want to get the most out of your Florida Keys vacation and choosing the perfect Hawks Cay accommodations is a good place to start.

So, how do you know which one is right for you?

Let’s begin with the obvious. If you have a large family or a big group of friends, then you might want consider one of our tropical villas or vacation rentals. They come in 2, 3 and even 4-bedroom models with full kitchens, plenty of living space, private terraces and much more. They’re basically homes away from home, so you can all stay together under one roof. Some people say it makes staying at Hawks Cay even more fun.

However, more room isn’t the only reason to choose a villa. Say you want to bring down your boat. The villas at Harbor Village offer dockage with direct access to the Atlantic right outside your back door. Tie up and your boat is just a few steps away, which is ideal for those early morning fishing trips or sunset cruises. There’s also a boardwalk where the kids can fish right off the shore.

As you might guess from the name, Sunset Village features homes overlooking the bay so you get to see nature’s fireworks every evening. Marina Village offers homes steps from the fishing and diving fleet. If you plan on booking charters, this is the place to find your Hawks Cay home.

Or maybe, you prefer a little added peace and quiet? If so, choose Sanctuary Village, a gated oasis surrounded by tropical gardens and forest of swaying palm trees. You’ll feel nice and secluded. However, as with all our villa neighborhoods, it’s just a short walk to the Saltwater Lagoon, Calm Waters Spa and everything else that makes Hawks Cay so special.

Of course, you can’t go wrong with one of our hotel guest rooms either. For romantic adventures or families with one or two kids, they’re ideal. Which is why we offer you a choice in the first place. At Hawks Cay, we want your Florida Keys vacation to be perfect.
