By now you might know, but if you haven’t heard, this is BIG news… PCI has a sister property! That’s right, now there are TWO Postcard Inns. Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina at Holiday Isle is the new addition to the PCI family, located in Islamorada, part of the beautiful FL Keys.
Becoming a Postcard Inn is no overnight transformation! Even here on St. Pete Beach, it took an absolutely amazing team of designers, and months of renovations. The same goes for PCI-HI (cute, huh?). The vintage structure known as Holiday Isle was originally built in the 1950′s and received an intensive rejuvenation and full makeover. Kudos to all involved with this project- the results hold true to the PCI vibe, while creating something fabulously original.
While Postcard Inn here on St. Pete Beach is all about surf decor, PCI-HI has a ”boathouse chic” theme. In the guest rooms, walls are adorned with whimsical trophy fish and beds are dressed with crisp white linens. The lobby has a floor to ceiling chalkboard that lists the daily temperature, tide times, and surf height, reminiscent of ours here on SPB. A collection of hundreds of postcards can be found on a wall in the lobby and the kid’s corner is done all in astroturf with tiny flickering lights like fireflies. This place really has to be seen to be believed!
As gorgeous as the interiors are, you don’t visit the Keys to stay inside all day. That’s why there’s so much to do here! Jet ski, paddle board, kite board, and kayak rentals and lessons are all available. The dive shop offers not one, but two dive trips per day for snorkeling and scuba diving. For those who would rather catch fish that mingle with them, did we mention that Islamorada is the sport fishing capital of the world? True statement. From the amateur to the award-winning, anglers almost always have a good fishing day here.
For those who believe vacations require hammocks and frozen drinks, PCI-HI has not forgotten about you traditionalists! The World Famous Holiday Isle Tiki Bar is one of the multiple bars and restaurants on property. Its claim to fame? The original rum runner was created here in 1972. Another hot spot coming soon is Shula Burger, opening December 2nd. Here, you can enjoy a piping hot grilled Shula signature burger either in the cool a/c surrounded by an impressive collection of sports memorabilia, or out in the fresh air on the large shaded deck. World famous and soon-to-be world famous; these are just two of your delicious options located directly on property.
There’s really SO much available at PCI-HI that we can’t fit it all in this blog entry!
From decor to dining to spectacular ocean views, Postcard Inn Beach Resort and Marina at Holiday Isle has it all! Be sure to check out their website for updates, photos, and reservations. It’s not the age, it’s the attitude.
