We're looking to book a week long trip to Islamorada in November 2018. Some friends who recently visited Islamorada have made us a little skeptical when they describe the damage that lingers from Irma. Is the charm really lost? I would expect things to be pretty much back to normal in November, but looking for other opinions since we haven't seen for ourselves.
We also were thinking of doing a vacation rental home through AirBNB or VRBO instead of staying at a resort as we have done in the past. Any thoughts or recommendations either way?
