About the property

6 Bedrooms, 7 Baths, 8 beds, 2 pullout sofas (Sleeps 14-16)

Perfect location and great for entertaining! In the heart of Old Town Key West just steps from restaurants, bars, theaters and shops, this sprawling six bedroom, seven bath compound has two private heated swimming pools, endless porches, terraces and a huge, fabulous decks that overlooks the action on Duval St.

Comprised of two buildings—a luxurious Duval St. penthouse with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, and a lovely 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath guest house. The two-story penthouse is designed after a chic urban flat with an island twist. The spacious, open floor plan is complemented by beautiful island-style furnishings and art work. French doors open onto terraces from every room, and there is a covered dining terrace off the gourmet kitchen. A private heated pool or hot tub with waterfall is the perfect finishing touch.

The guest house has three bedrooms, all with private baths, graciously spread out over three floors. The ground floor features a fabulous gourmet kitchen, dining area, half bath, and sitting room with a wall of French doors that open onto the deck and private heated pool with waterfall.

The master bedroom is located on the second floor and has a balcony and marble bathroom. Down the hall is a cozy den with a sleeper sofa. The two third-floor guest suites are spacious and private with beautiful tree-top views of Old Town.

Amenities include 2 off-street parking spaces, two private heated pools, gourmet Viking kitchens, HD flat screen TVs, Ipod docks, WiFi, laundry, and central heat & air conditioning.

Why Mark chose Old Town

We owned a restuarant were the property now sits since 2000. The entire property was torn down in 2006 and was redeveloped & finished in December of 2008. Our first guests stayed here in Jan of 2009.

What makes this villa unique

Reviews

Relaxing by the pool at this beautiful condo

VRBO Bear stayed here

Nov 13, 2013

I enjoyed a wonderful stay at this beautiful condo right in the heart of Key West. Mark, the owner, was nice enough to greet us with wine and give us a tour of the property. He provided helpful suggestions of restaurants and other activities around Key West and was able to answer all of our questions. The compound was jaw-droppingly beautiful. The pictures on the listing were so amazing I didn't think it was possible that the property could match up. It did and then some! We honestly did not want to leave! The home was nicely furnished, and the pictures and decorating were beautiful. The property is well stocked & impeccably clean. Every room has amazing light and updated appliances. The kitchen had everything we needed in order to make meals during our stay and there were a ton of spices and cooking supplies in the cabinets. It was as if we never left home...only my kitchen at home is not nearly this nice. There were extra linens, plenty of towels provided, and each bathroom was nicely appointed. The heated pools were both so inviting, we spent a majority of our time in the water when we weren't out on the town. There are patios along with a rooftop deck that are great for hanging out. You'll especially enjoy the spaciousness of the Master Suite and the balcony that overlooks Duval Street. It's great for people watching. I don't think this condo could have a better location, literally in the middle of everything and all the fun that Key West has to offer. Whether you are more into doing touristy things or you like to check out the local hangouts; this condo is right where you want to be. We were able to try out a lot of the places that Mark recommended along with restaurants listed in the guest book. Everything was fabulous. We are already talking about our next vacation to Key West and will definitely be staying here again. Don't miss your chance to enjoy Key West and stay at this fantastic home!

Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Right on Duval

  • 4 of 5

We booked both homes for our stay with 8 adults and 4 children. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and hangout during the day in the penthouse. The pools were great for both children and adults. The centralized location of the home made it easy to walk to most locations. Myself and some other members of the family slept in the guest house which was nice and quiet. The folks staying in the penthouse had a rough time sleeping due to the noise of Duval so make sure to bring earplugs or drink every night. There are a couple negatives such as the home was not very clean. A lot of the cushions were just flipped to the clean side and the floors were pretty dirty. Had to keep sandals on both inside and out. The outdoor furniture is in bad shape and had exposed screws from where they had fallen apart previously. We moved one seat to the side so nobody would get hurt. One big problem we had was trash. The trash can was already full when we arrived which is unfortunately the first think you see when you pull into the driveway. Garbage pickup is on Mondays which meant the trash can was overflowing by the end of our stay. Last thing is to make sure you have plenty of time to wash the bed sheets, towels, and dishes before you go. Checkout is 10am and you quickly run out of time to pack and clean on checkout day. Otherwise, it was a great location and all of the amenities of home were nice to have which made it easier to bring the children. I would definitely stay here again.

Top Notch Accommodations on Duval!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better location! We rented both buildings for my husband's 50th birthday and had an absolute blast! We never needed a taxi - very easy to walk (some more lengthy than others) to all our destinations (mainly bars). Mark (the owner) stopped by when he got back in town and was such a nice guy and brought us a bottle of wine for staying at his property! The front house (right on Duval) could hear the music and crowd at Willie T's next door, so if you are a light sleeper, just bring ear plugs. I personally stayed in the back house (on Bahama). The entire group had a great time! Walking distance to the grocery store as well - and if you leave your id, they let you borrow the cart to bring home your supplies! Definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you Angela for the great review, we do appreciate it. So, glad you all had so much fun! The master bedroom in the penthouse can get a little loud at times (sirens, loud motorcycle ..ect) as it opens directly on to a covered porch overlooking Duval Street. In addition to the hurricane rated doors we have added blackout sound reducing curtains and a quality sound machine that plays the ocean, waterfall, fire place, babbling brook ….ect. The other 2 bedrooms in the penthouse are on the 3rd floor and set back about 100 feet from the street and do not have noise issues. The guest house is set back behind the penthouse building on Bahama Street and is very quiet. See you soon, Mark

Unbelievably beautiful, well kept property right in the heart of Key West. Can't say enough about how nicely appointed, clean and convenient this property is. For small or large gatherings, this is a perfect retreat right next to the best restaurants and clubs. HIGHLY recommend

Business retreat

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a better place to have our retreat. I really think that this has to be the nicest house on the island and you can not be closer to all of the fun. We never had to cook as all of the restaurants are directly outside the front door. (There is also a grocery that practically touches the back parking lot). We had time to venture out and a short walk can put you at the end of the land or even enjoying the sunset from the ship/museum a few blocks away. If fishing is your thing, the owner of the house can reccomended a good charter. All in all, there can be no disappointment when booking this place.
