Three months ago I started a new job, after ten months off of work and ten years of school bus driving! In the past 3 months, I can promise you I have worked harder, learned more, and have taken in more information than I could have EVER possibly imagined!
It was so scary and I had so many doubts but I believe it was the best decision I made…and my favorite part? I FINALLY got to make the annual Key West trip with my hubby and best friends!
I have been looking forward to this trip for three years, yes three. It was finally time to see what all the hype is about and let’s just say it did not disappoint!
Coconut Mallory Resort and Marina
Since there were 8 of us going we had to find something that would fit everyone. We came across Coconut Mallory Resort and Marina while searching and it looked perfect.
The resort is located very close to the airport and a quick Uber ride to Duval Street. It is even within walking distance of some local bars. The entire resort is nestled in between palm trees and is beautifully kept. This resort is a great place to stay if you want to be away from the action of Key West, yet close enough to be downtown within 15 minutes.
Coconut Mallory offers studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom condos. We decided to get two, 2 bedroom condos and they were perfect for the 8 of us! The room definitely surprised me with how much space we had. Our room consisted of a full-size kitchen, living room, and we had 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms – along with a balcony with table and chairs.
The resort has two pools, a hot tub, park-style grills, and picnic tables. We grilled out a few nights and it was nice to be able to hang out by the pool and eat dinner at the resort before we headed out for the evening.
We all loved the resort’s boathouse bar overlooking the marina. It was definitely a big hit with our group and the bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly! The marina offers a few private boat slips available to guests as well. There are also kayaks and bike rentals available to rent during your stay!
Overall I would definitely recommend Coconut Mallory Resort and Marina as a peaceful and relaxing vacation spot in Key West. After a night of partying downtown, it’s nice to come back to a quiet resort and wake up in the morning to a beautiful sunrise by the marina!
Stay tuned for part 2 of our trip coming soon!
