Private Homes, Old Town house description

Location! Style! Elegance! This restored "beach" home is fabulous combination of everything a great vacation property should be. One half block to Duval Street in the historic district, this location can not be beat. The home's history is rich...neighboring the historic Gato Cigar factory which is now restored and used as county offices. Duval Square is directly across the street with three restaurants, shops, and even a salon and convenience store. The best homemade ice cream in Key West is just down the street!

The house is beautifully decorated with warm colors, sophisticated furnishings accented with Cuban and beach themed artwork. There is both a living room and reading area in the front of the house and a indoor/outdoor room to enjoy the tropical lifestyle of Key West. A large farmhouse table sits in the sun room with french windows and doors overlooking the pool directly off the new kitchen with black granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

The master bedroom is beautifully decorated with its black pencil post bed and unique bathroom with spa style vanity. The second bedroom sits to the back of the house and feels like the master suite with french doors to the outdoor sitting area and pool.

The 21-foot long heat optional pool features benches on each side for relaxing (one with jets!) There is an outdoor table and nearby gas grill for outside/open air dining.

                    This was the 2nd time I have rented from this owner. Our stay was perfect! The house was amazing, clean and had everything we needed. Thank you for always exceeding our expectations! ( and we are picky! )

                    We chose Casa De Cuba for our first visit to Key West and we weren't disappointed. The location is great - just steps away from Duval and the Southernmost Point. We walked everywhere! The house itself is beautiful and the backyard and pool were great. We asked them to turn on the heater for the pool (since it is December) and we were able to use the pool every night. We would highly recommend Casa de Cuba to anyone staying in Key West.

                    We stayed here a week for Spring Break in March 2013 and had an excellent time. The house is in a perfect location, 1/2 block off Duval (the main street), and close enough to walk everyplace we wanted to go, including both coasts. It is near many great restaurants and attractions. The house was in impeccable condition and was exquisitely decorated, it is a beautiful historic home. We would hire the owners to decorate our house! The owners, who live in Key West, were very nice and extremely easy to work with. The house was spacious and was well-equipped for our family of 5. We enjoyed the pool and private back patio. We recommend purchasing pool heat. Even with the heated pool option, the pool was still quite cold. Casa de Cuba was worth the price, we would definitely come back again!

                    This place is amazing! As I told Dean, when we win the lotto, we will make an offer to buy it! It is picture perfect, but very cozy. Awesome backyard oasis and pool. Attention to every detail is lovingly attended to. You will never enjoy any other property as much as this one!

                    We just stayed for a week at the lovely Casa De Cuba and had a great time! The house is decorated beautifully and felt like our 'home' for the week. We really enjoyed the kitchen which is where we spent the most time, IF we were inside at all. The outdoor living space is very relaxing to sit or read a book. The pool, BBQ and patio set were well used. Enough cannot be said about the fantastic location of this house! We rented bikes for the week and due to the convenient location, feel like we really know Key West. We would happily stay again and recommend this home to our family and friends! Cheers!

                    We stayed in this house two weeks ago and it was fabulous. It looks just as beautiful as the pictures suggest. The house was very quiet, yet it was also close to everything. The house was also exceptionally clean, which is very important to us. We will surely come back to this house in the future.

                    We just got back from staying a week at this property. What can I say!? It was wonderful. You can't beat the location of this home and it is decorated like a magazine. The pool and cabana area are wonderful too. The air conditioning works great in the house plus all the ceiling fans keep it very cool to get out of the hot humid heat. It is quite quiet here even though it is just off Duval, the main shopping and entertainment street. There is parking for a car, but we did not get a car, but rented bikes for the week as everything in Key West is close by, you don't need a car. This is a great house to rent for your stay in Key West. We will come back again.
