Rooms & Rates

If there was a fairy tale based on cottages at the beach, the Tranquility Bay Beachfront Hotel and Resort would be the happily ever after. The small compound of one, two and three bedroom cottages is on a private white sand beach, each with a private porch or veranda and most with water views.

The property embodies the conch-style architecture Key West is known for, mixing Victorian details like gingerbread trim with tropical island accents like plantation shutters and sloping roofs. Inside, the rooms have preppy-chic styling with pastel-colored walls and furniture and rattan accents.

Although the rest of the cottage is relaxed in style, the en-suite kitchens have granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, ready for slicing and dicing. Spacious bathrooms with frameless glass shower doors encourage lingering under a hot shower to wash off the sand and surf.

You could spend the entire time here going back and forth between the lagoon-style swimming pool and the private sandy beach. Or, try your hand at one of the many active ways to enjoy the ocean access including snorkeling, parasailing and wave runners. There’s introductory snorkel, scuba and dive classes that will teach your little ones to become ocean explorers. Grownups can try a stand up paddleboard yoga class, or just skip the exercise and indulge in an in-room spa treatment.

Fishing enthusiasts of all levels can try sport fishing, flats fishing or even bridge fishing. Marathon is a favorite among anglers of all levels for the variety and year-round availability of game fish. Turn your catch of the day into the evening’s dinner. The hotel’s Tiki bar will prepare your prize to your liking. If catch and release is more your thing, the hotel’s Butterfly Café has a mix of finer dining and kid-friendly choices to please everyone.
