Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Old Town: “Piece of paradise”. Sounds cliché but its true. We have been coming here for 20 years. Finally got the chance to have our own little piece of paradise. Key West has something for everyone. For us it was the local people, the great restaurants, and most important to us, the animal friendly attitude the town has. We have always traveled with our dogs. This little paradise always made us and our dogs feel right at home.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Careys cottage is located in the heart of the KW historic district and only a few blocks from the famous Duval Street and historic seaport. It is within walking distance of many of the most popular 'hot spots' in Key West. Within a span of a few blocks you will find dozens of restaurants, bars and shops to enjoy.
You can sit on our front porch and people watch or wait for the famous Conch Trolley to pass by as you enjoy a cocktail in your rocking chair or you can relax in the heated dipping pool behind the cottage.
You can reserve a fishing boat, motor boat, or bicycle to help you explore the island. For those of you who enjoy hunting for treasures, there are geocaching sites through out the island and treasures amongst the sands of many of the beaches that await you! The beaches are just a short bike ride away (or a relaxing 10 minute stroll by foot). All the many things that Key West has to offer, are within a ten-minute walk of Careys cottage.
Come feel like a local in Careys Conch Cottage. Please feel free to contact us for any questions or concerns you may have.
Safe travels :-)
