Description

Downtown House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Completed in 1992, this two bedroom two bath home was designed by a local architect for the relaxed Key West tropical lifestyle. Located on a quiet old town street only one block from Upper Duval Street and Truman Avenue, it offers off-street parking, easy walking/biking to Key West’s finest dining, shopping, attractions, and the beach at Fort Taylor State Park.

The one and a half story living space has nine french doors opening onto a private courtyard with a solar-heated pool and spa. High ceilings with multiple skylights, pickled pine wooden walls, casual furniture and the colorful hues of the Caribbean create a space that is both soothing and stimulating. Both bedrooms have tile floors and double french doors opening onto the courtyard and reflect the island's maritime influence with built-in furniture and storage areas. Besides the spectacular indoor shower, there is a small private deck with an outdoor shower for the truly native experience. The site plan is similar to a courtyard home. The bedrooms are in a separate building from the living space. The pool and spa are totally private and you share no space with anyone.

Maximum accommodation is six persons. There is a king size bed in the Master bedroom, a queen size bed in the second bedroom and queen sofa bed in the living area. The living room and both bedrooms have cable tv and dvd players. Pets welcome, ask about any restrictions.

Great, quite, private Key West home, steps from everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this great house on Center St, just a block from Duvall, but it was so quiet it could have been miles away from the action. There are 2 buildings, front one has large open cathedral ceiling living space with full bath and multiple sets of French doors leading out to partially covered deck, with pool hot tub and path to 2nd building holding 2 bedrooms 1 King, 1 Queen and a hall bath. There is also an outside laundry. Parking spot is a bit short, if you have a biggie SUV it may extend into street, but our CRV was just fine. (The only thing we wished for was a current sound system to upgrade the one in place, though it is wired it has an old cassette deck and a CD changer. A Bluetooth connection would spruce that up, and a couple bikes to get around town would be awesome. Sullins the owner could not have been more gracious or easy to work with. Book this home and guarantee a relaxed and enjoyable trip,

Everything was there you needed, sheets, towels, kitchen utensils etc

Center St, Key West

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home with my wife, and a couple of friends. It was very spacious, well kept, and a very convenient location to Duval and all of the other attractions Key West offers. The owner was quick to respond via emails and by phone, and gave us suggestions on where to go while visiting. We would recommend this house, and would definitely consider staying here on our next adventure to Key West!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described..... a great place to stay - near everything but allowed you to put feet up and relax. Sullins was great to work with - highest recommendation!

This house was perfect for two couples..everything we needed was in the house. The location is perfect and the pool was great to have to ourselves. We would not have changed anything about this house!

WHAT A WONDERFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great place to stay to experience Key West! My girlfriend and I stayed along with another couple and had a fantastic time. Very centrally located, in walking distance to so much - great restaurants and bars, one block off of Duval Street, the Hemingway House - and a great pool to come back to chill out in!

A perfect setting in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was the absolute perfect location for a group of four friends to spend a week away. We would walk to any number of close restaurants for breakfast, wander the neighborhoods admiring the homes, then head back to the house for an afternoon swim and nap by the pool every day. Then we'd get ready and head out to the nightlife. Everything was a close walk, with nothing more than 15 minutes away. Every person we encountered was friendly, from Sullins on email at the start of our journey, to Joli, the housekeeper, and her friend at the very end of our stay. This is definitely a two bedroom home. The sofa bed is quite uncomfortable (but really, does a comfortable sofa bed exist?!), so one of the singles in our party slept on top of the sofa. The sofa minus the back cushions is almost the size of a single bed, so it worked perfectly.

I highly recommend this home for a group of four or five. I hope to come back again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, especially about the sofa bed. I'm always pleased when I hear that my guests enjoy their stay and I especially appreciate comments that help me improve conditions for guests. I will bring down a queen size mattress topper that can be used when someone will be sleeping on the sofa.
