The post-holiday malaise. The fact that it’s Monday. All the Tim Tebow talk.
But something has you in the mood to get away. Like, fire-pits-and-tiki-bars-in-the-Keys-style get away.
Behold the Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle, a quietly sexy beachside resort in Islamorada, reborn after a massive renovation, now ready to host your next barefoot weekend of paddleboarding and daiquiri-drinking.
You’re already familiar with the surfer-friendly Postcard Inn up in St. Pete. This second outpost recreates that upscale sleepaway-camp vibe with a dash of nautical swagger. Meaning that in addition to the outdoor ping-pong table, paddleboard rentals and brand-new Shula Burger restaurant (order the Chorizo with charred onions), you’ll also have a 19-slip marina to dock your leisure vessel for the weekend.
After you’ve made the two-hour trek south to the handsome campus, you’ll settle into one of the new Lanai suites with patios that open directly onto the private beach. After a few rounds of Pac-Man and darts in the astroturf-lined lobby, you’ll make your way to the legendary Tiki Bar (untouched since 1969), where a tall Rum Runner will prepare you for a date with doing absolutely nothing.
It’s important to make time for that.
