About Lori

Lori Denues is legendary for record-setting performance. Over the years, she has built an impeccable reputation for honest, reliable, insightful and effective vacation rental management. 93% of her clientele has always been repeat business, including longstanding corporate clients.

After nine years of experience in the Keys vacation rental industry, Lori launched Stay In The Florida Keys to provide an unparalleled level of innovative service. Extensive up-to-date knowledge and unprecedented compassion have set her in a class of her own.

Born in Pennsylvania, Lori resided in New York before moving to Paris at a young age. Having lived throughout Europe for eleven years, she speaks French, Italian, German, a little Spanish, a little Japanese, a little Croatian.

Traveling extensively around the world has also given Lori the gift of insightfully understanding what travelers are looking for, what they need.

In Lori’s own words, “This is more than the tourism industry. It is more than the service industry. It is almost like a gift-giving industry, a stress-relief industry.”

Lori has lived in the Florida Keys since the late 1980s and has been active in the local vacation rentals industry half of that time. Previously retained by the prestigious Halstead Property Company in New York City, she for three years handled long-term vacation rentals for large corporations such as Morgan Stanley. Over the years, she has also designed the interior decoration of her own rental homes. Lori’s friends and family (including her beautiful and talented daughter) especially enjoy her skill as a gourmet chef.

The proud owner of a 1967 Willy Roberts flats boat, a true collector’s item, she fishes in at least three tournaments each year. Having taken Second Place in the Islamorada Ladies Sailfish Tournament and Third Place in the Poor Girls Tournament, she is now in the process of learning the art of fly fishing.

Lori’s modeling career included the cover of “Woman’s Wear Daily” (W), several European magazines, an Oscar de la Renta campaign, a series of photos for Italian “Vogue” recreating some of Claude Monet’s paintings taken at his Chateau in Giverny France, a music video with Sting, and appearances on the Joan Rivers Show, Joan London, and also Regis and Kathy Lee representing several top designers.

Among other community activities, Lori serves as both Secretary and Treasurer for Rural Health Network, a not-for-profit organization providing medical and dental care for those who cannot afford health insurance throughout the entire Florida Keys.

Lori has carefully chosen and trained her staff, drawing from all the compassion and life experience she has gained in so many areas. She feels strongly that her staff is a reflection of who she is. Therefore, she will only settle for the best of the best. The most caring people in the Keys are here at your service.

We warmly welcome your arrival in the fabulous Florida Keys.
