Exquisitely Key West yet exotically Cuban, this classy compendium of an elegant casa grande plus vintage casita is ideally located in the fascinating Upper South End of Duval Street. To create this unique vacation rental property we’ve combined a stunning 2-story neo-classic stand-out home with a luxuriously renovated historic cottage to create a perfect duet of Key West dwellings. Situated across the street from each other, on the quieter end of Duval, the living is made easy with lots of room to spread out and plenty of privacy.
Between the main house and the cottage there are a total of 5 beautifully appointed bedrooms, 4 ½ baths, and a private swimming pool making this a great option for families or friends traveling together. The hub of this 2-dwelling property is the spacious ground floor great room which incorporates a new gourmet kitchen, dining area, living room and adjoining luxury bath that is located in the one-of-a-kind two-story home. The back yard pool and sunning deck for this property duet is also found at the larger home.
But there is no need to flip a coin to see who gets to sleep in the romantic Viva casa since the authentic casita is set as 2 beautifully renovated up-scale bedroom suites, each with a private en-suite bathroom. And, a small but fully equipped kitchen adjoining cozy lounge area is conveniently situated between the two suites in the middle of the cottage. Two couples (or mom, dad and two kids) can comfortably relax in this setting and go over to the main house for socializing, dining and swimming.
On an island where hotel suites near Duval Street start at hundreds of dollars a night, this luxuriously renovated authentic duet property with 5-star amenities is an incredible deal! Today there are only a few such historic private residences that are available for rent for less than a month. Most properties of this type have been made over into apartments, bed and breakfast, or hotel style accommodations.
MAIN HOUSE - This neo-classical ‘stand-out’ home of fine distinction is a wonderful treasure that reminds us of romantic days of opulence when Key West and Cuba had both a business and brotherhood bond fueled by the seafaring trades throughout the Caribbean. Throughout the restorations and renovations the interior of this home has, for the most part retained its authentic original layout.
An impressive entrance hall on the 1st floor has polished hard wood floors makes a grand statement when you first enter the home to meet a perfectly restored original wooden banister staircase seems to mysteriously wind to the second floor. Stately rooms with 12- foot ceilings line both sides of the house.
Left of the grand entrance hall you find the luxurious great room that is appointed with upscale classic style furnishings, tropical art work, a 50 inch screen plasma TV. Ceiling light fixtures are carefully chosen crystal chandeliers like the ones that were traditionally found in the opulent manors of Havana. A new custom kitchen offers the latest modern standards with all the amenities you would expect in a modern luxury home of this quality.
The grand wooden banister staircase lends its fairy tale charm and gracefully winds upstairs to the left leading you to the center of the 2nd floor to find the 3 luxuriously appointed bedrooms.
The 1st bedroom is the stately green room furnished with a beautiful carved exotic wooden king-size poster bed. The 2nd bedroom is done in romantic blue and white and is elegantly furnished with a brilliant white king-size pencil-style poster bed. The 3rd bedroom is painted in soft golden-yellow and is set with a queen size platform bed.
A large luxury European style bathroom, divided into a separate ‘commode room’ and ‘bathing room’ offer a gorgeous carved vanity with granite counter top, double sinks, Jacuzzi bath tub, bidet, and double size glass shower.
THE COTTAGE - Enter the front door of the perfectly renovated cottage across the street from the main house and you step immediately into a traditional “shot gun” style hall room. The cottage is set up to function as two roomy luxury suites with private en-suite bathrooms plus a full kitchen, dining table and small lounge.
The front bedroom is luxurious done and provides a queen bed. Toward the middle of the cottage is a brand-new modern “U-shaped kitchen,” complete with top-of-the-line appliances, recessed lighting, and dining table. The cottage sized kitchen is completely open to the other side of the room and has a sofa and chairs for lounging, relaxing, or watching your favorite movies or sports.
At the back of the house is the 2nd luxury bedroom and en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath tub. The back bedroom suite offers a king size bed and is similarly appointed with earth-tone bedding and furnishings.
