Congratulation to Julie Dolan Casado for winning our Facebook memories contest. Her memory of meeting her husband on the location that is now Parrot Key and then later bringing her family back for a vacation touched us. We will post her winning entry below, but also will be posting some of our favorite pictures and posts from the contest. Thank you to everyone who participated, it was tons of fun.
This is my family enjoying Parrot Key Hotel in Key West, I shall tell you this place has special and dear meaning to us always. You see my husband and I are celebrating 17 years together this year. We try and go to KW and love staying at Parrot Bay at least once a year. When we saw that they opened we could not believe the location of the resort is almost to the spot in which my husband and I first met. Our son who is 12 years old now thought we were making up the story, but it is true. When you step out of your car and check in your room, you immediately leave all of your problems behind. The beauty not only the resort has to offer but the island does something to your spirit! Everytime my husband and I go we feel rejuvenated and refreshed and especially remember us all those years ago when our eyes first met each others for the first time. Parrot Key Hotel has designed all that KW should be, capturing all that one searches for in an ideal getaway. We have so many good memories to share but the one nearest and dearest to our heart is of course meeting in Key West and the fun we have whilst at Parrot Key, You can sip frozen drinks poolside and enjoy hearing your child play in the water. You can sit quietly as you view the beautiful plants and flowers in the garden area. We find the most enjoyment from watching the beautiful sunset together as a family and remembering all that we shall be grateful for in life. Our memories will always hold great meaning to us and we hope that our son when he has a family someday that he too will bring his family to Parrot Key and enjoy this beautiful island and make new memories.
