Private Homes, Old Town cottage description
MOJITO ROW- Come stay at a beautifully renovated 19th century (circa 1890) cigar roller's cottage in old town Key West. Key West is the continental United State's only Caribbean island-- closer to Cuba than it is to the mainland United States. This island is technically in Florida, but COMPLETELY different in culture and community. No car necessary! Easy walking distance to everything in town. Fully furnished with Tommy Bahama pieces. This tropical getaway is on a very community oriented compound in the heart of old town. The house is a comfortable 2/2- master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and guestroom with ensuite bathroom. It has new stainless appliances, broad band wireless internet, big HD Plasma TV in great room (with surround sound in living room), dade county pine, master bedroom has huge ensuite bathroom with his and hers sinks, claw foot tubs/showers, master bedroom has queen bed, the second room has two single pillow top beds (very comfortable), with ensuite bathroom. The house is incredibly bright (the pics don't do it justice- I'm not much of a photographer) with high ceilings, windows everywhere, and ceiling fans. The entire back wall of the house can be opened to a wonderful back deck. The back part of the house, deck, railing, outdoor show have all been painted tropical colors since the photos. The deck has new outdoor furniture, outdoor dining, outdoor shower, stainless steel grill, hottub, stainless steel firepit (lots of fun in winter), and a detached bar/cabana. In the hidden landscaped parking area (no one knows it exists but for the residents of the compound) there are three beach cruisers for you to use. It has a front porch from which to play dominoes and watch the world go bye. Truly a great place to visit.

- MOJITO ROW- Come stay at a beautifully renovated 19th century (circa 1855) cigar roller's cottage in old town Key West. Key West is the continental United State's only Caribbean island-- closer to Cuba than it is to the mainland United States. This island is technically in Florida, but COMPLETELY different in culture and community. No car necessary! Easy walking distance to everything in town. Fully furnished with Tommy Bahama pieces.

In the hidden landscaped area (no one knows it exists but for the residents of the compound) there are four beach cruisers for you to use. It has a front porch from which to play dominoes and watch the world go bye. Truly a great place to visit. Our neighborhood is in Old Town Key West. The island is VERY safe and friendly. The entire island is 4 x 2 miles. Old Town (the historic part) is MUCH smaller. In our part of town EVERYONE walks or rides their bikes everywhere. Historic homes and businesses surround you as you walk down to the nightly sunset celebration at Mallory Square (free and you MUST SEE THIS), or go to THE TOP at LA CONCHA HOTEL for a bird's eye view of sunset, museums, galleries, orchestra, theatre, OLD TOWN GHOST TOUR (a must), or jump on a charter boat to take you to the reef or back country. You can sneak a peak at Jimmy Buffet's house (which is not even a 2 minute walk away) on your walk to the beach or the Hemingway house tour. There are loads of gourmet restaurants all within easy walking distance and the live music and night life of Duval street is famous. The neighbors are all close-knit and very kind. It is difficult to convey the vibe of Key West. Key West is unlike any other place I have ever lived or visited. It is VERY safe. It is very unpretensious. Key West has a 'live and let live' attitude. You could roller skate down Duval st. wearing a chicken costume and a pair of bull horns, singing the Latvian National Anthem and no one would look at you twice. Imagine a less crowded, friendlier Mardi Gras- but year round and in the caribbean....moreless

About the owner: I was born in the Midwest and moved to Florida when I was 19. I attended the University of Michigan, University of South Florida, and finished undergrad overseas. Then I traveled and sang around Europe and Asia for a while before coming back to the USA to attend law school at the University of Florida. While on vacation in Key West, I jumped onstage and sang a couple songs. The owner of the bar offered me a job which I refused 3 times over the course of the weekend. Finally, he made me an offer I couldn't refuse and (with my parent's blessing) I decided to be a musician instead of a lawyer. I have been a performer/recording artist based out of Key West since 1998 and I have traveled to countries all over the world- 6 out of 7 continents. From riding a monster wave on the North Shore of Hawaii to riding an elephant in the bush of Mpumalanga, from climbing a rock face in the French Alps to climbing a 350 ft. sand dune in the Sahara Desert, from singing for the Queen of Thailand to singing in a pub in Dublin- It's been quite an amazing time.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Old Town:
I have been around the world. I lost count of all of the countries I have lived, worked, and traveled in. As far as an actual home-base goes, you can't beat Key West. The history, the nightlife, the restaurants, the live entertainment scene, the culture, THE WATER, and the 'live and let live' attitude make it a truly unique place.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I had recently sold a house on the water here in Key West. I wasn't sure I was going to buy another home (I own 3 long term rental properties) in Key West. I just happened to walk by a Sunday 'open house.' I was in the door and five minutes later I made an offer above asking price. The history, location, and attention to detail grabbed me from the moment I saw the place.
