With school out for summer, it’s time to book unforgettable family travel. For families looking for a bigger space, consider booking a villa, which offers more room, flexibility and home-like comforts than a typical hotel room. Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys is home to 210 villas, making it the perfect private rental option for family trips, family reunions and more.

Available in two-, three-and four-bedroom houses, each villa features a full kitchen, making it easy to cook meals during the stay so you don’t have to eat out every night. Villas blend the comforts of being at home with a variety of resort-like amenities. Guests can enjoy private lanais, multiple pools, a spa, access to the marina and proximity to Tiki Beach. Whether looking for a waterfront spot or a quieter accommodation, the variety of layouts mean guests can choose which villa best fits their group’s needs.


Here are a few options to consider:

  • Harbor Village: Closest to the main resort, Harbor Village features a canal and boardwalk and is just steps away from all the amenities the hotel has to offer. Guests can also take advantage of boat dockage and direct access to the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Sunset Village: Set by the sea, Sunset Village offers the best views of the sunset and is closest to Calm Waters Spa, Coral Cay Kids Club, Sunset Pool and Hawks Cay Marina.
  • Economy Rentals: For a budget-friendly stay, check out this collection of two-bedroom rentals.
