A Private Tropical Paradise ... is the feeling you get when you enter the pavilion of this award winning villa just a half block off Duval St. in Old Town Key West. I first visited this private home when it was featured on the prestigious Garden Home Tour of Key West which opens a few select private homes to the public. A total renovation created a stunning one-of-a-kind tropical water pavilion by bridging two cottages with a pool, spacious deck and lushly landscaped garden. The pool is made both mysterious and fantasy-like with beautiful glistening stones and a giant frangipani tree which drapes the pool. Just a few blocks from Mallory Square, steps from grocery shopping, excellent restaurants, popular clubs, the Historic Seaport, and tropical shops makes this one of the most requested and convenient accommodations in Key West. We are so pleased to offer it as one of the more unique properties available in Old Town.
The Pavilion Villa vacation rental home was re-designed to create a spectacular indoor and outdoor multi-level living space which is both elegant and playful. Enter the main cottage from the street side, and you’re immediately reminded you’re on an island by delightful tropical reef carpeting that adorably covers a charming historic staircase leading to the 2nd floor sleeping loft. Here you find a 1 ½ story dwelling which houses the living room, kitchen, three bedrooms, and a full bath with a beautiful indoor/outdoor shower room.
The inventive layout of the main historic cottage maximizes the use of available space, using every nook and cranny to offer something both functional and beautiful. Immediately inside the front door to your left, is the first bedroom with two twin beds that can be put together to make a king bed on request. Straight ahead of the front door is the small scale historic stair case which leads to a loft-style bedroom. This bedroom provides a queen size bed, and has an added feature of a roof-top balcony that overlooks the pool. Back downstairs is one more bedroom, with a king size bed, and an artistic Caribbean blue bathroom with a sunken tub and elaborately tiled large private indoor/outdoor garden shower.
Updated in December, 2015, the dining room, completely renovated kitchen, and beautifully furnished living room are towards the back of the main cottage, and are linked to the pool and deck through double sets of French doors. An outdoor dining table and chairs set just outside the doors serve to extend the living area to the outdoors to the pool and deck area which draw you to the second two-story cottage which is on the opposite side of the pool. Once on the deck pavilion, it is almost impossible to proceed to the back cottage without stopping to dip your toe in the pool, and take in the beauty of the garden. The private spacious deck has plenty of room for sunning and lounging. A second bathroom in the outdoor garden area, consisting of a sink and commode room, and tiled shower room, makes indoor/outdoor living fun and convenient.
Walk the deck past the pool to reach the second cottage at the back of this unique paradise pavilion. The back cottage has 2 full stories with the first floor set up as a sleeping and lounging area. There is also a large kitchenette and breakfast bar for convenience. The second floor has master bedroom with king size bed and full bathroom, and a spacious balcony which overlooks the pool and looks back towards the front cottage.
The design of this home makes it ideal for family groups or groups of friends. The pavilion-style plan provides two private buildings which are adjoined with a spacious outdoor living room for all to gather. It should be considered as an ideal location for a wedding party to reside, but not to stage the wedding. At the same time, the intimacy created by the garden pool pavilion make this unique home a wonderful location for a smaller group who want privacy and room to spread out.
This home is offered as an exclusive vacation rental in the most requested location in Key West. The property will not tolerate smoking inside.
