Private Homes, Old Town house description

Ever wish you could spend a month or two in one of those perfect little conch houses set along the streets of Old Town, Key West? Take a look inside this classic little conch house with a Caribbean flair, and you’ll find exactly what you’ve been looking for. Set in the ideal Key West location - on Southard Street just two short blocks from Duval Street in one direction and the Historic Seaport in the other – this island jewel is the realization of the Key West dream: sit on the front porch, swim in your private pool, cook and eat outside, and then stroll down to Duval for an evening in the beloved Conch Republic.

The Porch & Pool …

Southard Street is a famous, one-way Old Town street leading directly toward the downtown area of Duval Street. This street is known for its well-used bike path and its quintessential Key West conch houses. “Caribbean Fling” is one of those homes: a little gem perched along the street with a perfect little front porch to sit and watch the passersby and take in the island air. Follow the porch around the backyard to reach your own private oasis – a lagoon-style dipping pool of the perfect size for this lovely little home. Surrounded by outdoor seating and a tropical garden complete with an outdoor shower, you will have to find some very good reasons to leave your little slice of paradise on Southard Street.

The Living Area...

Through the lovely blue hurricane shutters and perfect front porch is a gorgeous island cottage, straight out of the pages of coastal living. Luscious island colors and fabrics, seashells and flowers decorate the open living area, complete with a flat screen TV with DVD player and an iPod dock. There is plenty of seating in this living area, including two separate couches and a small dining nook in the corner. One of the couches is a luxurious leather sofa that folds out to a Queen-sized sleeper sofa.

The Kitchen & Island Dining Area…

This home has one of the most unique dining areas you will find in Key West: on the walkway between the living and the kitchen is an all open-air dining area with space for 4 under a bamboo-style roof. One wall of the dining area has linen curtains that pull across to provide additional privacy of shelter from an afternoon shower. Follow the dining area to the kitchen, a tiny but very efficient indoor/outdoor space with a fridge, microwave, stove, oven, toaster oven, coffee makers, and all of the utensils and tools you’ll need to whip up a meal. It is island living at its best!

The Accommodations...

The master bedroom opens up off the living room and has a Queen-sized bed, flat screen TV, large dresser, and ceiling fan. The master bathroom is en-suite with a tile shower. The cozy second bedroom opens up off the outdoor dining area, with twin bunk beds. This cabin-style “bunk room” has an en-suite half bathroom. Both bedrooms have in-room air conditioning units, so each bedroom can be set at the perfect temperature.

The Amenities..

Washer & Dryer, In-Room Programmable LD A/C Units, Ceiling Fans, Gated & Lushly Landscaped Outdoor Area with a Lagoon-Style Private Pool, Charcoal Grill, Flat Screen Cable TVs, Microwave, Toaster Oven, Gourmet Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Interim housekeeping provided upon request. Wireless high-speed Internet access is included. This property will accommodate up to 4-6 adults.
