Old Town Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)


Welcome to Harvey's Haven - beauty and economy in the heart of Old Town Key West! Ideally located at 611 Southard Street just one block from famous Duval Street, this ground floor studio suite is equipped to make your stay in the islands comfortable and convenient. Harvey's Haven is both removed from and integrated into Old Town Key West. This is a non-smoking unit designed to accommodate two people.

This charming suite is comfortably furnished with a QUEEN BED, DOUBLE FUTON, dining table, and tropical artwork. Transomed windows and an open floor plan create a breezy atmosphere in Harvey’s Haven. The FULL KITCHEN features a coffeemaker, oven, stove, and the accessories to make any chef happy. A spacious bathroom with standing shower and full length mirror completes this wonderful accommodation.

Lush tropical surroundings characterize the Hollinsed House Compound. The architecture of this lovingly restored Victorian home is complimented by gardens and a courtyard fountain. Relax and socialize in lounge chairs beside the sparkling heated POOL or enjoy outdoor dining nestled beneath the swaying palm trees. Harvey’s Haven is walking distance from fine restaurants, bars, clubs, and the best shopping on the island. Just a short bike ride down Southard Street is Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Atlantic Ocean. Swim and snorkel, tour the historic fort, bike along the shaded trails, or just kick back and enjoy the spectacular sunset.

The Hollinsed House, with its wraparound porches and gingerbread trimmings, best represents what Key West was, and what it remains to be: a blend of history and modernity, smack in the middle of Old Town.

This tropical retreat is truly an 'island oasis'!

All the necessities are provided: iron and ironing board, plush beach towels, etc.

Amazing place & even better location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Harvey's Haven for a week and loved every minute. This place is absolutely perfect for a couple (and even 4 people if needed with the pull out couch/bed). The location is amazing and within walking distance (or short bike ride) to everything. We rented bikes for the week and made the reservation before arriving. The bikes were delivered and waiting for us when we arrived from the airport. We were able to start our venturing immediately.

You are merely a block off of Duval street, making the access to places to eat, nightlife, etc. easily accessible. Although you are so close to Duval street, you are still away from the noise and will find the place peaceful and relaxing. The grounds of the location are nicely kept and we enjoyed several days sitting outside by the pool and relaxing.

The room has the essentials of everything you will need for the week. It is very clean and updated.

We could not have asked for a nicer place to stay for our first time visiting Key West. We will definitely be back in the future and cannot wait to stay here again :-)

Great Stay at Harvey's Haven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for just the weekend at Harvey's Haven, and we absolutely loved it there! We have stayed in Key West once before at a rental, and this one is way nicer, and close walking distance to everything that we wanted to do, Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, Duval Street, Mallory Square, stores, and restaurants! We easily walked from the ferry to the condo. We had everything we needed in the condo, and we will always book Harvey's Haven when we return to Key West. Yolande was very helpful with a phone call, and texts to make sure we were able to enter the condo, all went very smoothly. We loved the outdoor grounds, and the pool looked great, although we were mostly on the go, and didn't get to enjoy the pool, but for sure on the next visit, we will! We can't wait to return!

We were hoping for quiet, comfort and closeness to everything in Key West...and found it here. Thanks guys! Harvey's Haven was perfect for our needs, and we're big fans of Old Town. Close enough, yet not too close to Duval, and we found plenty of places away from the hustle and bustle of Duval that are worth exploring. The condo was great, the grounds beautiful, and I actually think Ms. Tigger will miss us! We will miss her, and can't wait to return.

What A Gem

  • 5 of 5

Based on other reviews, I expected this 1st floor, front unit, to be nice. Indeed, it exceeded my expectations. The unit itself is nicely laid out with the main entry through the small kitchen and opening up into a nice-sized living/bedroom combination and a spacious bath off the bedroom. There are windows on three sides with the front facing Southard street. All windows have shutters so one can enjoy privacy or open the shutters to allow natural light to fill the unit. While the building itself is probably 60+ years old this unit is updated, and very clean.

There are other units at the Hollinsed House available for rent from other owners/managers. Look closely at the other pictures before booking there to see how extensively they have been updated, if at all.

Parking for two cars is 1st come on site. Other parking without time restriction was found easily on the street immediately in front of the property. We stayed three nights and never used the car because the location was perfect. About a block to Duval and maybe a ten minute walk to Mallory Square.

The outdoor pool and surrounding courtyard are well screened from the street and provide a peaceful setting to relax.

Lastly, the management company Key West Island Getaways was very responsive and a pleasure to deal with.

And say hi to Ms Tigger for us.

Well-appointed room in great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Harvey's Haven. The location was close to the action of Duval without the noise. The room was spacious, very clean, and truly had everything we needed, including beach towels and even ice in the freezer. We took advantage of renting bicycles through Eaton, which were delivered to and picked up right from our room. One "heads up" is that the bathroom door is slatted. For anyone considering a trip with someone other than a really close friend or spouse, you should be aware of this point since it makes the bathroom a little less private. Overall, we loved our stay and would not hesitate to rent this property again. It was perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post such a lovely review of Harvey's Haven. We have set up this studio for up to two adults that are either a couple or close friends as the living area borders the sleeping area. We hope this cozy space continues to satisfy vacationers for years to come. See you next time!

Our 10th anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5

My bucket list had an item on it that I knew could be accomplished pretty easily: driving down the Ocean Highway to the Florida Keys. We had stopped in Key West on a cruise once but it was only for 6 hours and it rained for half of it. I wanted to go back! Hubby and I talked about it and since it was our 10th wedding anniversary, we agreed to take a weeklong trip and do the drive. Flew into Fort Lauderdale and rented a car (a convertible!) and made the beautiful drive. Hardly any traffic, gorgeous weather, perfection. Yolande made our contact time SO EASY: a quick phone call and a subsequent text with the info needed to access our unit. We arrived about dinnertime in Key West and found easy parking on the street. We found our unit and entered, Miss Tigger, the lovely kitty of the complex showing the way. Harvey's Haven is perfect: a well equipped kitchen, a cozy dining area, comfy living room area and a private bath. We specifically looked for a unit like this so we could have the flexibility to purchase groceries and cook in, which worked great! The unit was very quiet with easy access to the pool area. The wifi connection was perfect, no issues there all week. The location of the house is excellent and an easy walk to anything. We walked to the Southernmost Point and Fort Zachary Taylor State Park very easily. We walked to Mallory Square every night for sunset and we walked to the pier to get the ferry to the Dry Tortugas. Duval Street is 2 blocks away if you like restaurants, shopping and nightlife. There is a grocery store two blocks away and a variety of bakeries and coffee shops in the area. Check out was a breeze. This unit was excellent all the way around. We could have ordered housekeeping service but did not really need it in the 5 days we were there. We spent our last afternoon lounging by the pool and BBQ-ing dinner. After another sunset and a great nights sleep, we made the drive back up the highway. We would most definitely come back and visit again. Our stay was great, service was great and well worth every single dollar spent!
