We have ruled out Sunset Harbor. Being close to the action on Duval for 7 nights or however long we stay is not that high of importance to us.

Another question, in reviewing the resale listings is there any advantages of one over the other for Friday/Saturday/Sunday check-in, or is just personal preference?

Check in day is just personal preference. I like Friday check ins because you can get things done Friday afternoon/evening, and often on Saturday. All the best markets are usually closed on Sunday.

From the sounds of it, what you really want is Windward with a dock. (Doesn't exist.) Beach House is great. I own there. But the dock is "iffy." If you're coming for Lobster Mini Season, forget it. Most of the rest of the year, I'd call it "a coin flip."

Windward has the easiest parking situation and it's also the easiest for people who want to head to Old Town and then head back. South Roosevelt Boulevard is a lazy bike ride to the Southernmost point, and then up Whitehead St. to "where the action is." I much prefer getting from Old Town to Windward over Old Town to Beach House.

North Roosevelt is like cheese-gone-south -- just keeps getting worse with age. At the tail end of when I lived there, I'd take South Roosevelt or Flagler east, and then one of the handful of connecting streets to get me closest to my destination (which because of logistics was almost never Winn Dixie).

Thank you again for all the great input. I was not aware of dock availability at the Beach House. That will weigh into our decision. I was pricing transient slips at a few of the local marinas. The higher MF at Beach House compared to Windward Pt would be offset by not paying a private marina if a slip at the Hyatt is available.

Does anyone have experience on the first come first serve use of the dock, and calling ahead?
How does it work, any additional fees?

As for parking, those rates are reasonable for a week. As mentioned above, we live in So Florida so we will never be flying into Key West.
Coconut Pt and the Key West properties are the most convenient for us. Because we can drive, bringing our own bikes to get around the island is easy. We have experienced the nightmare parking and drivers firsthand so don't need the headache of that while on vacation.

We have ruled out Sunset Harbor. Being close to the action on Duval for 7 nights or however long we stay is not that high of importance to us.

Another question, in reviewing the resale listings is there any advantages of one over the other for Friday/Saturday/Sunday check-in, or is just personal preference?
Windward and the Beach House are only 2 BR. That takes away the option of saving points by staying in a 1 BR or Studio.

Can anyone familiar with Windward Point let me know about the outdoor patios on the first floor units? I did a google image search and haven't found anything with a close up shot showing the first floor. They all highlight the higher floors.

Is there a full railing that prevents you from walking to pool deck or stopping someone from coming directly to your slider from the common area?
All units have outdoor dining table and chairs?
Doesn't appear that any unit is screened in regardless of floor?

Thank you.

Yes, enclosed balcony with surrounding plantings, but screens (at least since my last stay). Only Beach House has(had) screens.
