About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Extraordinarily secluded and completely hidden from view on a sleepy artist’s lane is a special slice of Key West you would never find on your own. This is a home of fine distinction that offers ‘5-Star Quality Amenities’, and displays the most authentic and romantic elements of Key West historic architecture while at the same time offering the most desirable attributes of a private Caribbean Resort style home.

From the moment you step inside the property gate you’ll feel as though you’ve entered ‘a world all your own.’ The spacious free-form black bottom pool complete with trickling waterfall possesses the prettiest elements of a peaceful natural lagoon. At this point the stresses of everyday life seem to gently float away and you know you’re in your own little piece of paradise.

The interior hub of this villa is the European style kitchen adjoining an indoor / outdoor loggia dining area and the elegant living room / music room through casement style French doors. The spaciousness of the living room and dining areas are accentuated with cathedral ceilings and French doors that lead to covered porches and the courtyard. The living room includes a beautiful piano, exquisite furnishings and original artwork.

This remarkable resort style home offers 4 bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms are located on the 'bedroom wing' along a light-filled hallway that adjoins the kitchen via French doors. The master bedroom is at the very end of the hall and offers a king a king size bed. It also has a spacious private en-suite bathroom and the additional luxury feature of a private outdoor sitting deck over looking the garden. The remaining two bedrooms are further up the hall as you walk towards the kitchen. The 2nd bedroom offers a queen size bed and the 3rd bedroom offers 2 twin beds. A full bath along this bedroom wing serves as the bathroom for the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. There is also a powder room (half-bath)and laundry center along this hall-way.

The fourth bedroom is a private guest cottage situated in a free-standing pavilion style building. Located next to the living room, this cottage offers a king size bed, spacious en-suite bathroom, and a separate sitting porch overlooking the courtyard and pool garden.

The overall style and design of the ‘Tropical ~ Tranquility’ villa reflects the unique vision of the worldly European artist-owner of the home to create the ultimate Key West – Caribbean – European villa that flawlessly blends the indoors with the garden. French doors leading to covered porches, soaring vaulted ceilings, and ceiling fans make it comfortable to enjoy the open air island ‘green’ life style. While the villa does have two central a/c units, the forward thinking environmental design of this home allows you to enjoy life without a/c on most days.

Beautiful furnishings throughout the home and outside are understated and elegant. An original art collection from local Key West artists and Scandinavian artists graces every room. Furniture and wall colors are soft and neutral to enhance the tranquil feel of the home; most of the color is provided from bright tropical flowers in the garden.

Sleeping configuration:

Master – king size bed; Bedroom 2 – queen bed; Bedroom 3 – two twin beds(can be made as a king); Private Guest Cottage – king size bed.

Amenities: Large lagoon style swimming pool with trickling waterfall, expansive bricked courtyard with mature palm garden and manicured tropical garden, privacy fences. Fully equipped kitchen, a/c, telephone, piano, color cable TV, stereo, washer / dryer. Linens and towels are provided. Catering can be arranged. Maid service can be scheduled.

Parking: Private off street parking for one to two cars maximum.

Restrictions: Smoke free house. . Smoking permitted outside only.

Notes: The elegance and design of this home make it ideal for sophisticated individuals with discerning tastes and is best suited for a family or executive group looking for the very finest Key West has to offer in a truly authentic home with 5-Star Quality amenities. It should never be considered as an option for travelers looking to stage a party or any kind of event.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wonderful place. As nice as photos in ads. Pool has sun all day, am and pm! Plenty of bathroom space. Lovely kitchen. We managed a week without a car. Not too far to walk to all the fun night spots. Beach walk took 5 minutes!

An Oasis in the Heart of Everything

  • 5 of 5

This property is a tropical black hole. You step through the creaky wooden gate from the tiny, overcrowded alley way just past the trash cans, and whooosh, away goes the noise of the town and you find yourself in an alternate universe of quiet beauty. It is hard to realize how close you are to Duval St., the waterfront, all the museums, and of course the bars and restaurants from inside this hideaway. The house is stunning, with a show kitchen with professional chef appliances that opens up to an outdoor dining room complete with a solid marble table. To the left of the kitchen is the bedroom hallway, with three well appointed rooms. The Master Suite on the end has its own private outdoor sitting area tucked away in a nook surrounded by palms and orchids. The artwork is exquisite throughout the house. To the right of the kitchen is a huge living/music/TV/reading room, filled with books, a piano, lush seating, beautiful fabrics and decorations, inviting you into the perfect after-dinner gathering place. Steps across the brick patio at the end of the pool is a complete guest cottage with king bed, sitting and reading areas, and a large stone bathroom with open shower. Every space is illuminated with large French doors and windows, with skylights overhead. The property is immaculate, cozy, upscale and worth every penny. Even the iguanas, who share your pool area in the late afternoon, are colorful with their bright reddish-orange throat displays. Someone came in to the kitchen two nights and feasted on our bananas left on the counter, but they were polite enough to leave by sunlight. Caretaker Kevin said he had never seen one of the many lizards climb up on a counter before, so we felt very special indeed. This is a slice of quiet heaven in the midst of all that is crazy-wacky in Key West.....a much needed respite for my family of six adults.

Tropical Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house in early December for my husbands 40th birthday and there aren't enough good things to say about it. The house is extremely spacious and private and even with 7 adults we could all find our solitude. The house is in immaculate shape and everything in pristine condition. The kitchen opens up fully to the covered dining area which is where we spent a lot of time. The star of the house is of course the pool and patio area. The pool is quite large and as we had cold December weather we were glad it was heated. The grounds are gorgeous and lush and very well maintained. Only drawback was the house was bit removed from the old town area, but otherwise it was perfect. Can't wait to return.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our stay in Key West and this house is absolutely amazing! We were a total of 8 people, 4 couples, and everything in this house went way beyond our expectations. There was plenty of room for 8 people and the rooms are spacious and clean. The kitchen is fully stocked and very clean. The outdoor lani is perfect fit and we enjoyed it immensely. The pool is large and well kept and the yard has plenty space to sunbathing for everyone. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The street is quiet & secluded but walking distance to everything. The house is completely hidden from view & is very private. We fell in love with this place & are planning to stay here again next year! I promise you will be not be disappointed.
