Subject: Florida Keys
I live in north Florida, near Jacksonville, and have been to the Keys many times. One of my favorite places to stay is the Bucaneer Resort in Marathon (about 50 miles from Key West). If you don't know already, everyone uses the milemarkers posted on the road as addresses. So the Bucaneer is at MM 50. It is a nice place, its own small beach, pool, dock for boaters, plenty of outdoor space for recreation, restaurant, and is not too expensive. They have small stand-alone bungalows or 2 bedroom condo style units, with full kitchen. It has been about 2 years since we've been there, but at that time the 2 bedroom rented for about $100 a night. Marathon is the largest populated island before Key West.

Hope this helps!
