About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Welcome to a little piece of hidden paradise you never knew existed. Once you're nestled into this hideaway, you'll never know you're right in the center of Old Town Key West. Situated at the end of a little walking lane, this charming cottage is made completely private with tall wooden fences and tropical landscaping. Your own private courtyard has bricked pathways, a very spacious wooden deck, complete with large Jacuzzi spa, an out-door dining table, and plenty of deck space (with lounge chairs) to soak up the sun.

"Secret Courtyard Cottage" has all the elements for a wonderful vacation. Whether you are looking for a private getaway spot to relax with a central base to explore local sites and activities, or the perfect location for a romantic get-away, this paradise will be home away from home. So close your eyes for a few moments, and imagine the island paradise of Key West-- and this precious little cottage just waiting for you.

Recently renovated, this small historic cottage was originally built in the early 1900's as a cigar maker's house. To meet modern standards, it was doubled in size to create the two bedrooms while reserving the original board and baton part of the structure for an open living room, dining, and kitchen area. French doors at the end of the kitchen carry the indoor living space to the spacious outdoor that is now set up as a spacious outside living area.


The interior make-over opened up the ceiling to expose the wooden beams, and added luxurious extras including granite counter tops, new tile and wood flooring, and ambient lighting. The updated decor draws from traditional Caribbean design with the use of wood and wicker furniture. Walls are decoratively painted with delicious colors of mango and papaya. Open beam ceilings are made to feel tropical with bamboo reed lining. Exotic ceiling fans with leaf shaped blades carved from mahogany top it off to create a real island paradise feel.

The layout of this cottage is as functional as it is charming. The master bedroom is toward the back of the cottage. It is roomy and has a queen size bed, large closet and chest of drawers. The second bedroom also has a queen size bed. While the second bedroom is cozier, it offers an added tropical ambience with French doors leading to the deck for easy access to the Jacuzzi.

The living room is handsomely furnished, and the sofa makes into a full size sleeper futon. The kitchen is equipped with all the basics to eat in if you decide to. This cottage is ideal for one or two couples, and a perfect get away for a single. It can sleep five if you don't mind getting cozy. It also works well for a family with one or two children.

Amenities: Private Jacuzzi, decked and bricked courtyard, fully fenced and private yard, equipped kitchen. A/C, washer / dryer, color cable TV, C/D player and stereo. Linens and towels are provided.

Parking: This cottage has no private off-street parking, but you can park at the City Parking Garage on Caroline and Grinnell St. Fortunately from here you really never need to get in your car. Enjoy walking or biking everywhere. Enjoy the island to the fullest, and then come home to relax in the Jacuzzi and have BBQ on the deck.

Bedding Summary: 2 queen beds, 1 double futon

Activities: Shopping, restaurants, night life, museums, sailing, boating, snorkeling, diving, beach, theatre, family activities. Everything is within walking distance. Leave your car at home.

Area: Right in the middle of downtown Old Town. Duval Street is just around the corner. Mallory Square where you can enjoy the sunset celebration every night is a short distance walk.
