Property description

TIL 10:00PM eastern std time
You will love staying in this great location where 90% of the residents are local. They each have an interesting Key West tale to tell and are a very warm, friendly and diverse group. Here you will absorb the ambiance that made Key West what it is today.

Varela St. Retreat is located in historic Old Town away from the bustle on famous Duval Street. It is only half a mile to the closest beach and a 7 minute walk to Duval Street. It is less that one block to the White Street art gallery district, the grocery, the laundry, the largest city park,restaurants, shops, bike rental shop and more.

Go ahead, kick your feet up and make yourself at home! You are about to enter Varela St. Retreat. Here you will meander back a secluded stone pathway to reach your very own private, spacious wood sun deck complete with lush overhanging tropical vegetation.

A table and chairs and chaise lounge await you. You can dine out and soak up the warm inviting Florida sunshine,chat with your friends or just catch up on some reading. The front room of your apartment is a combination of a full kitchen and a separate dining/office area. The back room has a queen-size bed and a living area complete with a sleeper sofa. The bathroom has a stall shower. The apartment has all new ceramic tile and wood laminate flooring.
Varela St. Retreat offers FREE parking right on the sides of the street in front of the Retreat. Also, ask me about a pool hook up if needed. So please come and make Varela St Retreat your temporary home while away from home!

Why the Owner Chose Old Town, Key West, FL, USA:
If you want to know what it feels like to really live in Key West and you like the benefits and homey feel of having your own kitchen, living area and either deck or porch this is a good fit for you. Plus my location is grand. I love being literally so close to everything and the beach.
