Ever wonder what it’s like to “glamp” overnight in a tiny house on a Florida Keys island?
Visitors can enjoy “glamorous camping” at the Florida Keys’ only tiny house village, a waterfront enclave located at the 75-acre Sunshine Key RV Resort & Marina in the Lower Keys near Big Pine Key.
“Our tiny house village makes the perfect Florida destination and is a great ‘glamping’ option for any Keys road trip,” said Pat Zamora, spokeswoman for Petite Retreats, operators of the tiny house village. “It’s the ultimate relaxation destination.”
“Glamping” refers to camping in accommodations much more luxurious than traditional outdoor tent or sleeping bag camping, but still in amenity-filled recreational vehicle and camping resorts.
Each Sunshine Key tiny house is under 350 square feet and sleeps two to six guests. They sit near the RV resort’s Gulf of Mexico shoreline and have their own distinctive design.
Amenities include linens, a full bath and standing shower, air conditioning and heat, a stove top, coffeemaker, toaster, cookware and dinnerware, a refrigerator, TV with basic cable and outdoor dining.
The tiny house village, identifiable by its bright tropical colors, offers five models: the aqua Kai and jade Hemingway, each with accessible lofted sleeping quarters; the yellow Lucy and light green Isla with round porthole-style windows, each sleeping up to six people; and the pink Pearl with a lofted queen bed and living room sleeper-sofa.
The 399-site Sunshine Key RV Resort & Marina features a full-service marina, a recreation center and stepladder access to an open-water swimming area from a sunset pier. It’s located at 38801 Overseas Highway near Bahia Honda State Park.
