Property description

Location Location Location:

This classic conch house is situated in the heart of Key West. Across the street is the famous lighthouse of Key West, Hemingway House is steps away and Duval Street is just around the corner. The perfect location to either enjoy the sunny days or walk to your favorite destination.

The three bedroom ensuites are ideal for family vacations. Designed with the elements of Key West, you will feel as if you stepped into an island oasis. The classic Key West 'colors' are inspiring for your vacation stay.

Three levels are designed for privacy. The main level consists of the kitchen and dining area, a Caribbean inspired bedroom and bathroom and the family area. The family room has 4 sets of french doors overlooking the sparkling pool and outdoor dining area. An outside pool bath is classic for Key West.

On the opposite side of the pool, the brick path leads to an outdoor shower. Watch the Hemingway cats walk along the fence post along this brick path.

The second floor ensuite features a King size four poster bed. The newly renovated bathroom in the tropic blue and green palettes are relaxing and inviting. Take the back stairs down to the pool for your morning swim. You can sunbath on the upstairs terrace or enjoy your morning coffee while overlooking the tropical gardens. A sitting room off the master bedroom floor opens up to another upstairs terrace to enjoy the views of the lighthouse. You may never want to leave this beautiful suite.

On the third floor, step back in time to the Cuban era. Hardwood floors, a newly renovated bathroom and separate bedroom with the classic Cuban colors are all decorated for a delightful stay. The secluded en suite is perfect for friends planning a stay in Key West.

The two large front porches is typical of the classic Key West architecture. On those lazy afternoons, sit on the porch and read your favorite book or just enjoy mojitos while you people watch.

Who says you can't have it all. This is a remarkable property located in the heart of Key West. Steps away from all Key West has to offer, yet secluded and private for a peaceful vacation.
