Property type house

About the property

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 place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was very clean and was just as the pictures show. The location is great, can walk to Duval St and all the local attractions. The area is very quiet also as it is in a residential area. It is very nice to have the parking spot as parking is very tough in this area. We had a mid size suv and fit perfectly. The owner was very easy to work with also.

This house was in the perfect location, and it was the best set up. With the pool in the center it gives off a great relaxing tropical feel. The owner is super helpful, and the housekeeper is also super nice! Very easy to work with and plan everything out. I loved this house, and I am sure you will too! Beds are comfortable, and house is great for family gatherings or anything at all. Rooms are a great size, and once again the house is set up in a cool and great way! Would deff stay here again!

Key West Charmer

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several days with another couple and found it to be the perfect place for us. Very convenient location; walk-able to anywhere in downtown area. As other reviewers mention, the house has a very unique layout with the bedrooms and one bath in a separate building from the living, kitchen and other bath area. A pool/spa in the courtyard separates the two structures. The spa was a welcome amenity after a long day of walking and exploring.

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
