Top 12 Airbnbs in Key West

Key West is not only a tropical paradise that you don’t have to board a plane to reach, but it’s teeming with exciting attractions, from historical sites and trendy restaurants to a pleasant nightlife. Craving days of snorkeling, biking downtown, eating key lime pie and shrimp? Consider renting an Airbnb to totally immerse yourself in the Key West way of life. Many require a 28-night stay to comply with the Homeowners Association, but that’s a great excuse to stay and play for a while. From quaint little pools to airy pastel aesthetics, these are our favorite Key West Airbnbs.
