Private Homes, Old Town condo description
The Hollinsed House guesthouse located in the very heart of "Old Town", is a wonderful Key West Victorian home with a rich Key West history dating back to the 1880's. We are not a hotel. We are a guesthouse...an inn. Come stay with us and see what living like a local really means.
This Victorian beauty combines the perfect location and the flavor of Old Key West with all the modern conveniences. And, yes, each condo has it's own private bath and fully equipped kitchen. This is like coming home. No...it is coming home!
Eve's Paradise is a beautiful, newly renovated condo at the Hollinsed House that is a dream come true! With 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 half bath and a tropical outdoor shower you and your guests will have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy a month or two (or longer) in Key West! The kitchen was renovated with a professional chef in mind complete with a window that opens to the beautiful covered back deck and tropical back yard. Evenings in Eve's Paradise are waiting for you!
The heated pool and garden areas are shared by all our guests, so prepare to meet new friends or just quietly lounge with a good book or loved one.
We are located in the center of Old Town on Southard Street, only 1 block off Duval (at Simonton St.), however we are in a quiet residential neighborhood when you're ready to leave Duval behind.
Please, call or eMail for availability. NOTE: CALANDER IS NOT REAL TIME.

Great for a long stay with a group
Great for a long stay with a group
We stayed in "Eve's Paradise" this last weekend. It is much bigger than the pictures look online. When you first walk in, there is a large sitting room with a couch and two side chairs, On the left side of the sitting room is a large dinning table. Next to the dinning table are large French doors that lead out to the private covered deck and patio. The kitchen also overlooks the deck and patio. There is a bedroom off the sitting room that has a comfortable queen size bed. Off the sitting room, through lovely shuttered doors, is the living room. Off the living room is the second bedroom which is larger than the first one. The living room has a fold out sleeper sofa. The bathroom is gorgeous with a huge shower. The half-bath is outside off the patio; it was way too hot last weekend to use it without sweating to death. The garden shower is on the opposite side of the deck. The water pressure is pathetic, BUT if you only need to rinse off and have short hair, it works fine. We did not use the deck or patio simply because it was so hot and humid, though there are two ceiling fans above the deck. Tips on the location: when you walk out of the condo and exit the property, turn to the right and proceed one block. On the corner is a lovely restaurant called Sarabeth's. We had a fantastic breakfast there. Continue down Southard a few more blocks and you will hit Duval Street. Duval has lots of shops and bars. If you turn right on Duval and walk all the way down the street (about a 10 minute walk), you will hit Mallory Square on the water. You must go at sunset because there are vendors and performers - lots of fun. In front of one of the hotels in Mallory Square is a old truck that has been transformed into a bar. They have the most AMAZING mojitos I have ever had. They are nine dollars, but they are big and tastey. Getting around Key West: taxis are incredibly expensive. We rented bikes each day from a shop on Southard St. So, again, take a right out of Hollinsed's, walk down Southard past Duval, and the bike/motorscooter place is a few more blocks down on the corner of Duval and Whitehead (I believe). Bikes are ten dollars per day, but you get a better price for multiple days. If you keep going past the bike shop on Southard, you will get to Fort Zachary Taylor park and beach. You pay a few dollars to get in, but the location is perfect (about a 10 min bike ride down Southard from Hollinsed). Take your own chairs and umbrella too.

Recommended for: Families with teenagers, romantic getaway, girls getaway, tourists without a car.
Manager response: Actually Duval Street is only one block from Simonton Street (The Hollinsed House is one house from Simonton Street). When you live in Key West you realize that the locals, Conchs, do not refer to alleyways as blocks. They count blocks as major street. Sorry for any confusion this causes to guests. The water pressure for the outdoor shower is definitely dependent on the number of guests that are staying at he Hollinsed House. It "at the end of the line"!!!! Sarabeth's is absolutely always my recommendation for breakfast in Key West. The Smoked Salmon eggs is out of this world and the toast that is homemade can't be beat! And I will most certainly take your recommendation and go try a mojito at the truck bar. I think they have the best mudslide on the island! We hope to see you at the Hollinsed House on your next visit to Key West........
I came down with 4 friends (ages 25-30) for "Young Professionals Break" the first week of May. We stayed in Michael's and it was fantastic! The space is cute and even more spacious than the pictures suggested. (We also peeked in The Real Deal downstairs, and the renovations look fantastic!) The small balcony was perfect for a relaxing drink outside, and obviously the location could not have been better. With two futons and a bed there was space for everyone, plus the great rate we received allowed us to spend even more on Duval St! Michele loads you up with recommendations and each one we took was spot on. I've already been spreading the word that if you come to Key West this is the place to stay!

This was our 2nd visit to the Hollinsed House. The loft was perfect. We truly enjoyed our stay! The balcony was amazing looking over the gardens, the pool and the people strolling by. I had to work a little while I was there, but it could not have been more relaxing up there on that balcony with coffee and my laptop. The groundskeeper was so nice! Both visits he has made us feel right at home. We will never stay anywhere else in Key West when we come to visit. Thank you again Michele! We hope to come again soon.

We've been to Key West several times but this was our first experience with VRBO. We could not have been more pleased. The location of the Hollinsed House is perfect; just a few blocks from Duval and within walking and bike-riding distance of everything! If you are thinking about vacationing in Key West look no further, this is the place to stay! You will not be disappointed. Michelle was of great help when we first inquired about renting and continued to be of help (answering questions via e-mail) in the weeks leading up to our stay. We've been back in Ohio for four weeks now and we are still talking about our fun-filled vacation and wonderful accommodations at the Hollinsed House. Thanks Michelle.

Awesome! We had two units but ours was the center of the action - coffee on the 2nd floor porch, cocktails in the afternoon...add the resident kitty who adopted us, best sleeper sofa ever, nice people, great pool - - only decision is how quickly can we get back! Thanks Michelle for sharing your piece of paradise!

Hollinsed House is the best spot in Key West. We are a little hesitant to add a positive comment to this website because this is a rental we would like to keep secret and all to ourselves. We stayed in the Real Deal and loved it. The grounds were just as beautiful as the condo. And the location perfect. We're willing to share but only if the Real Deal is available for us the next time we want to visit Key West.

Great location. Michelle was a great host. Spotless, roomy yet cozy. Nice pool and very private but only 2-3 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Duval. Best location in Key west. We'll return time and time again. Mark and Connor Tonkin

Stayed in Michael's eyebrow loft. Spotless. Comfortable. Cosy. The pool is great to cool off in. Best location in Key West. Very quiet, but only a 3 minute walk to where the action is. We will return again real soon.

I decided to spend my 30th birthday in my favorite place - KEY WEST. A few friends and I stayed in Michael's Eyebrow Loft for 5 nights...it was everything we needed and wanted! The location is phenomenal, pool is wonderful, loft was adorable and TONS of space and did I mention the location?? SUPERB location. Michele was incredible to deal with - so helpful and friendly. I will definately return to the Hollinsed House!!

We've been to Key West a number of times over the past years and havn't really found a rental that we wanted to return to, until now. "The Real Deal" is a perfect spot to stay when in the Keys and I guarentee we'll be staying there again. Michele could not have been any more informative or responsive to our questions and/or concerns. "The Real Deal" is a beautifully decorated, spacious, and comfortable place with access to a great courtyard/pool to meet new people or spend time with the ones you came down with. Not to mention the house location is perfect. I highly recommend this rental. You won't be disappointed.
