Best Time For Key West Vacation Rental Deals

June 17th, 2013

Famous Key West sunsets, vibrant Duval Street nightlife, and serene ocean waves are just a few reasons why Key West is a popular and sought-after vacation spot. Even with all this unique beauty, planning a trip within your budget is essential. In order to make your vacation both relaxing and cost-effective, here are a few pointers to score the best Key West vacation rental deals.

The winter months from October to April are the busiest and most expensive times of year to visit Key West. Many visitors seek refuge from colder temperatures in northern regions, and flee to the warm, breezy beaches of Key West. The October Fantasy Fest Carnival draws large crowds interested in the dazzling parade and performances that celebrate Key West heritage and ignite island life. Holidays in November and December also contribute to more costly Key West vacation rentals.

Beginning in May, the crowd starts to thin out and vacation rental prices decrease. Finding better and more cost-effective deals becomes a much easier task from May to September. Clear skies and affordable prices abound during the Conch Republic’s summer. While the temperatures are warmer, the sea breeze works to cool the island and its residents. This ensures that visitors will have ample opportunity to parasail, visit the historic seaport, or take scooter rides around the island.

Researching deals early can help you plan a trip within your time frame and budget. The beauty of Key West can be experienced year-round, but the best vacation rental deals are found during the late spring and summer months.
