Brian Whitehead purchased this condo in 2008

Why Brian Whitehead chose Key West Area

Because this unit is the one and only Top Floor End Unit Penthouse with the very BEST OCEAN VIEWS of the entire OCEANSIDE COMPLEX

Over 1.2 Million invested in this property

What makes this condo unique

Without any doubt the best Ocean Views at the Oceanside Complex. Our newly decorated comfortable, top floor Penthouse with vaulted ceilings and hosts three large bedrooms, and two large baths, this ocean view unit is just steps from the ocean. Full Chef Kitchen

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Brian,



Our family had a wonderful stay at your Key West Condo the past 2 weeks. We found the condo to be very clean and well-equipped. The boat slip was great too. Unfortunately, the marina no longer offers gas, bait, or ice during the construction.

One suggestion we have for your consideration; every condo/hotel we have ever stayed in has a community ice machine for guests. The other Keys condos put a lock on the ice machine so only guests can use it. It would be really nice if the Oceanside condos invested in an ice machine, so we wouldn't have to drive nearby for filling coolers.



We are interested in renting your condo and boat slip again next year. Is it too early to reserve it?



Thanks again for all you do to make your condo so great!

A Wonderful Slice of Heaven in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute wonderful time. The pictures on the website, while are very accurate, do not do the condo justice as the condo is gorgeous! This was our second time to Key West but our first time staying in the condos at the marina. However, we used this marina for our boat both times and had a wonderful experience. The condo was very clean, had all the items needed to make a family feel at home and be able to cook without having to eat out all the time. The view was breathtaking and the pool/hot tub were wonderful. Everyone we met at the condo was extremely friendly. This is a terrific place to stay if you have children since it is “off the beaten path” but yet only minutes from Duval Street. The marina is fun too, especially for the children because at the end of a fishing day, they children can go down and see what the fishermen caught and feed the tarpon. We also had a manatee come up to our boat while we were rinsing it down and drink the fresh water right from the side of the boat! We were all amazed by this. Brian is very nice and professional and great to work with. We will definitely stay here again... Ginger

AN EXTREMELY NICE QUIET CONDO WITH A COMMANDING GORGEOUS VIEW!!

  • 4 of 5

THE EXCELLENT:

THIS CONDO HAS A FANTASTIC LOCATION

AN UNBELIEVABLE VIEW OF THE TURQUOISE WATERS IN KEY WEST!!

TWO PARKING SPOTS UNDERNEATH THE BUILDING, A HOSE TO CLEAN YOU CAR, UNFORTUNATELY;

THE TWO PARKING SPOTS BACK UP TO THE GARBAGE COLLECTION HUB FOR THE ENTIRE BUILDING.

THE CONDO WAS VERY CLEAN, DECORATED NICELY; THE KITCHEN APPLIANCES ARE: "TOP NOTCH" SAMSUNG. THE GRANITE COUNTER-TOPS AND WOOD CABINETS ARE SECOND TO NONE.

MILITARY JETS FLY OVER AT 9:01AM AND THE COMMERCIAL PLANES FROM KEY WEST

AIRPORT ARE BOTH ENTERTAINING AND EXCITING!! DOWNTOWN KEY WEST IS NOT FAR AWAY.

RESTAURANT WISE WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND:

THE HOGFISH GRILL NEARBY IS A MUST!

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST SEAFOOD AT A REASONABLE PRICE FOR KEY WEST.

ALSO; A MUST:

"LITTLE JOHN'S" ITALIAN RESTAURANT FOR DELIVERY IS FANTASTIC FOR THE DOLLAR!

THE REASON I CAN'T GIVE THIS CONDO A: "FIVE.0"

WHICH I TRULY WISH I COULD:

WHEN YOU DO THE MATH, THIS CONDO COST ALMOST $12,000.00 PER MONTH.

FOR THAT:

I WOULD EXPECT A CEILING FAN ON THE SPACIOUS BALCONY, AN ELECTRIC GRILL THAT DOESN'T BLOW THE "GFI" OUTLETS, A TABLE ON THE BALCONY MADE FOR ADULTS, NOT: MUNCHKIN'S OR CHILDREN; AND BATHROOM COUNTER TOPS (AS BEAUTIFUL AS THEY ARE ) THAT ARE FOR PEOPLE OVER 6'-3' TALL OR LARGER. THE OTHER TWO ITEMS THAT BOTHERED US WAS THE KITCHEN SINK WATER PRESSURE - WHICH WAS EXTREMELY WEAK AND THE LOPSIDED AIR-CONDITIONING THAT COOLS THE BEDROOM AREAS VERY WELL BUT NOT THE ENTIRE LIVING AREA, THUS, I HAD TO USE A FAN (PROVIDED) TO TRY TO EQUALIZE THE AIR TEMPERATURE BETWEEN THE TWO AREAS. I SPOKE TO OTHER TENANTS (ACTUALLY THEY FLAGGED ME DOWN IN THE POOL AND THIS IS A PROBLEM WITH ALL THE END UNIT CONDO'S NOT JUST THIS ONE - A CONDO ASSOCIATION ISSUE). THERE IS ALSO THE POOL THAT CLOSES AT 8-PM OR (DUSK) - WHICH DIDN'T BOTHER US, HOWEVER; THE JERK THAT LOCKS THE GATE FOR THE CONDO ASSOCIATION SEEMS TO GET HIS JOLLY'S OUT OF LOCKING THAT GATE. I SAW HIM THROW PEOPLE OUT THAT HAD JUST ARRIVED AT 8:30 PM -

(THE GATE WAS LOCKED THAT NIGHT @ 7:10PM) AND YES, THEY JUMPED THE FENCE AND THAT WAS UNCALLED FOR - HOWEVER; THEY JUST SPENT A WHOLE LOT OF MONEY TO STAY THERE, AND WERE NOT OUT OF LINE (BEHAVIOR WISE) AND THEY CALLED THE PROPERTY OWNER AND SHE SAID:

"CLIMB IT" SO, HOW WOULD YOU FEEL??

MY SON LEFT HIS CREDIT CARD AND WALLET UNDER HIS BED...BRIAN'S HONEST HOUSEKEEPER NOTIFIED HIM AND, IN TURN; BRIAN SENT MY SON'S WALLET BACK TO US AT NO CHARGE!!

BRIAN IS A WONDERFUL HOST AND THE CONDO OVERALL IS FANTASTIC!!

It was clean and it was equipped with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

It was away from the busy key west. Quiet and relaxing. Only a very short drive to get to anywhere you wanted to go.

Beautiful Oceanfront Condo with Terrific Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

We woke up every morning to the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean. That's what you will experience with this beautifully furnished three bedroom condo right on the ocean at Oceanside Marina. With direct views of the ocean from the living room, master bedroom and of course, your private balcony, you will never want to leave this quiet and peaceful condo. There are touches of tropical whimsy everywhere, a constant reminder that you have arrived in America's Paradise.

The living area is bright and airy, with plenty of room to entertain. The kitchen is completely equipped with everything you would need to prepare the most ambitious meal. The dining area is surrounded by windows on three sides, with light shining in from all angles. Sliding doors open onto the spacious ocean view balcony, which has comfortable seating as well as an outdoor dining set and BBQ.

The master bedroom has a King size bed, walk-in closet and sliding doors to the balcony, with an in-suite bathroom furnished with twin vanities and a separate room for the toilet and oversize shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed, and the second bathroom also has an extra large shower. The third bedroom has two twin beds. The owner provides linens and bath towels, along with beach towels, cooler and sun screen.

We can't wait to return !

Owner's Response: Thank You Brian for the Great Review... The nice thing about being away from Duval is you get a good sleep at night, no drunks waundering around the property, looking in your windows, getting sick in the bushes, no loud music all night, no bright neon lights shining in the windows. I don't mind a 10 min cab ride home to relax and enjoy a private property. Also bicycles rentals deliver right to the condo and you get to explore Key West at your own pace! PLEASE Come Back to KEY WEST Soon!

Perfectly peaceful and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

The property was terrific. It is actually on Stock Island. At first we thought we would have preferred to be in the Key West fray, but quickly learned that the peace and serenity was perfect.
