Here's what travel writers are saying about Sunset Key Guest Cottages, A Westin Resort:

Florida Travel + Life:

"This man-made island sits 500 yards from the Conch Republic — home to Sunset Key’s 40 guest cottages. Ferry over for a sunset dinner on the sands at Latitudes, for Florida lobster and locally caught yellowtail snapper, or rent a cottage for the experience of living on a private island. Boats to and from Key West run 24 hours a day for late mainland fun."
