We stayed at Boyds about 10 or so years back, liked it just fine. Backed right up on the water. It is very convienent to KW but of course that costs $$$. We liked the night life so a long drive back up the Keys after an evening in town wasn't desirable. we paid the bucks, stayed close, rented a scooter to get around on. A bicycle would work also. Parking is tough in town, especially with a large tv. If you don't need a driver, & don't mind driving into KW, some $ can be saved by staying farther up the Keys. We also stayed on Big Pine Key once. Bahia Honda SP is also very nice but hard to get a spot.
Anyway, back to the original ?. Boyds should be just fine. Enjoy the Keys and Key West, it's a different world down there. Have a safe & happy trip. John

Talk to me during Canopener. We haven't stayed at Boyd's, but we have been to Key West three times in the last five years.

Thanks to all, I appreciate the feedback. I think we are going to give Boyds a shot. I will post my visit so that it may help others, Chief, I look forward to meeting you at the Canopener. I took a walk through Topsail this afternoon and it was very quiet. I can't wait to see all the AS's

We're going to Key West in January and are staying at Blue Water Keys, it's pricey but it's a beautiful place!

I checked out their web pages. Looks like a very nice place.
Have you stayed there before?
Do you know if they offer any discounts, ie, AAA?

No, we've never stayed there but the reviews were great! No discounts that I know of and I wanted to go in February but they were full. There are two websites to rent from
http://www.bluewaterkey.com/
And
http://www.bluewaterkey.net/

It's is an owners resort and they have two different agencies renting them out. When are you going?

Couple thoughts

Being familiar with Key West now (4th time at Bluewater scheduled for May), I gotta say that a ride from Boyd's to Duval is still a hike. Where are you putting the scooter when you're on Duval? Also, drunk driving on a scooter is no better than drunk driving in a car. This time I'm going to get familiar with the bus system. There's a stop right in front of Bluewater. There's a great public parking area right off off Mallory. Hope this helped. Have a blast.

blmitch5,
Thanks for the info. No plans in the near future to travel, but the Keys are among one of my favorite places to visit, although it's been years since I've been there. It's definately on the radar for next year. Just came back from southern NM 2 weeks ago and I've been trying to clean things up, with the weather lately, it's becoming quite a challenge. Might get some snow today! I'll just have to think about Florida for now.

Bluewater has a 24ft min... Do you think I would have a problem with a 23fb FC?

Chief, When you drag down to Key West do you stay at the Navy MDR campground/park?

We have stayed at the military campground, and Bahia Honda State Park.....both have their good and bad points.

Reservations for Bahia Honda are some of the most difficult to obtain.......either be on the phone at 8:00 EST, exactly six months from your arrival date, or haunt the website for cancellations. Some people love the campground.....especially if they snag a waterfront site. We enjoyed our visit, but would not go back. The "no see-ums" just about drove us crazy.

Reservations cannot be made for the military campgrounds. If you plan to go during Winter months, forget about staying at Sigsbee and having hookups. Trembo Point is the overflow for Sigsbee, and is strictly dry-camping. However, two really great things: they never turn anyone away (it's just a big field), and it is about a mile from Mallory Square (where the action starts each day with the sunset celebrations). We prefer staying at Trembo because of it's location. However, the shower facility is deplorable (reminescent of a 50's style high school locker room), and you can end up with some "interesting" neighbors. There is a lot of drama among the "long-term" residents (some folks spend the whole Winter there), but for a few days it is hard to beat......especially the price of $12 per night. The city of Key West does not allow overnight parking.....ANYWHERE!

I like Key West.....my wife....not so much. The biggest problem I have is the drive from Miami to Key West.......the longest 100 miles in the world, or so it seems at 45 mph with traffic and lots of redlights. BTW, Monroe County is serious about traffic law enforcement (no, I don't have first-hand experience )
