Private Homes, Old Town house description
This MONTHLY RENTAL is a newly renovated two story traditional Key West home with guest cottage and is the former home of a New York Times bestselling author. Renovations spared no expense including venetian plaster walls. Located in a quiet residential area of Old Town Key West, this home is equally accessible to the beach and Duval Street night life. The gourmet kitchen opens to a dining room with French doors leading out to the pool. The large heated cocktail pool, accessible from both the dining room and guest cottage, has a built in water feature and jacuzzi jets.
Enter the front gate to a luscious tropical landscape. Climb the three steps to a typical Key West front porch, complete with lounging chairs. The front entry greets you with a traditional bamboo ceiling fan and hardwood floor which extend throughout the house.
The master bedroom, on the second floor, features an antique brass king bed, en suite bathroom and TV. French doors lead to a spacious second floor deck with lounge chairs and a tree-top view. The master bath includes a walk in shower with seat, removable shower head, rain feature and body jets. Adjacent is the guest bedroom with a queen four-poster bed, TV and large closet. The hall bath is a spa-like setting with marble tile, dressing table and a jacuzzi tub.
The first floor includes a study, gourmet kitchen, dining room and living room. The study has a desk, single day bed (no trundle) and adjoining bath, to make this a private bedroom for one person. The kitchen is appointed with a double oven, six burner Wolf gas range, pot filler, sub-zero fridge, dishwasher, HDTV and wine cooler. Granite counter tops provide plenty of room for multiple chefs to work comfortably. The kitchen is fully stocked with gourmet cooking implements and dinner ware. Opening the French doors off of the dining room to the pool gives a sense of outdoor dining inside. The living room provides two seating areas, one for quiet conversation and one for viewing TV. The 46' Pioneer Elite HDTV with surround sound and DVD player are discretely housed in a custom cabinet. Both the first floor and guest house lead out onto the back patio, which is ideal for outdoor dining. The patio is also where the gas grill is located.
The guest cottage provides seclusion just a few steps away from the pool and connected to the main house through a short hallway with privacy lock. The guest cottage has two twin beds as well as a HDTV, kitchenette, sofa and a full bath. The kitchenette features a full sized refrigerator, ice machine, microwave, sink and eating area.
All bathrooms contain hair dryers and pool/beach towels are provided.

Exquisite Key West Home
Our stay here was awesome. The home was beautiful and well maintained. It came with every possible amenity, pool, fullly equipped gourmet kitchen, gas grill, nice TV system, comfortable beds, lovely baths, beach chairs, bicycles...everything to make your stay a welcome one. It is located about a 10 min walk to upper duval and 5 min to Higgs Beach. You can get everywhere by walking or biking. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had. We would absolutely stay here again.

We are 3 couples that stayed here and just LOVED it!! Very large home for Key West. We loved cooking in the kitchen and we did not even plan on cooking, but once we saw the kitchen we ALL wanted to use it !! Bedrooms and baths all lovely too. Easy bike ride or walk to Duval. I can't wait to come back to Key West and would definitely stay here again. Thank you!!!!

OMG! What a Home.
OMG! What a Home.
This home is even better than it's description. Totally renovated with the best of everything. Gourmet kitchen with over-the-top appliances. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Just look at the pictures - then imagine more. The owner is pleasant and even left a bottle of Champaign for us in the refrigerator when we arrived. We were there for our wedding.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: My son and I bought the home in Key West as a get-a-way from the harsh winters of the Northeast. My son is a PhD student in Philadelphia and I work in New Jersey. When I (finally) decide to retire, Key West will be my winter home and, I'm sure, my son will visit often.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Old Town:
The combination of sun and good weather, along with fine restaurants, led us to select Key West for our vacation home. Key West can provide quiet and relaxation. But, at the same time, there is plenty to do in Key West. Boating, fishing, snorkeling the reefs, shopping in the unique boutiques, biking along the water are just a few of the activities that we enjoy here.
