Luxury Island Mansion

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths

Simply the best! For almost ten years we have had a five star rating. Why? Because we are not a rental agency, we are a family who look after you personally through the booking process and your stay. Since the house was completed in December 2009 it has been one of the most sought after vacation homes in Key West. It has been occupied by groups of young adults and also by families. All ages enjoy this luxury mansion. Built by a British designer with no attention to detail left out. European style molding's throughout the mansion and Brazilian cherry floors make this one of the most elegant houses built on the island in many years.

Come with me on a tour of this magnificent house that you and your family will enjoy living in for your vacation, and I can assure you will want to come back to over and over again!

As you enter the property through the gatehouse you enter into a totally private and secluded vacation home, with beautiful trees and plants. A step up onto the front porch and you are about to enter the most enjoyable house on the market!

You are now standing in the great room, with the most amazing view ahead of you to the huge outside pool, gazebo and hot tub with its waterfalls that at night are lighted with varying colors. As you stand inside and look up you see the various European style covings each with different lighting levels to create the perfect ambience. To the right is the exquisite bar area where you can serve your family and friends their cocktails and beers as they enjoy paradise. Oversized sofas await your seating pleasure as you relax in this huge living area. To the right are the stairs which overlook the living room with openness. At the rear of the living room is the exit to the private two car garage with automatic doors.

Lets stay downstairs a while. As we walk to the right we enter one of the most amazing kitchens that you can possibly entertain, everything new. All that you would need is provided. If you are catering to a family or friends, or just ordering in. This is a great place to prepare those special meals. There is a breakfast bar that takes you into the dining area where you can sit with your friends and family discussing the awesome time that you are having on our paradise island, but with amenities in a house like this, you don't even have to leave the mansion to enjoy yourselves!

Behind the kitchen is located the laundry room with washer and dryer.

The first bedroom is located with its doors opening to the huge pool and hot tub on the first floor. Beautiful wooden floors and lovely high ceilings, imagine just opening your bedroom door and enjoying the palm trees and pool each and every day. This bedroom has a bathroom immediately outside with a beautiful glass door shower unit and double jets.

Up the wrap around stairs you stand at the top and you can see the entire living room from one angle or you can walk out onto the large wrap around balcony outside from which you can see the awesome pool and hot tub surrounds by palm trees.

Enter bedroom two with its queen bed and outstanding bathroom with double head shower heads and glass doors. Nice walk in closet and views of the pool from the windows.

Enter bedroom three with its octagonal shape with nice closet and 180 degree view of the front yard with beautiful trees. Nice size bathroom with double head shower heads and glass doors. This room has a queen bed.

Bedroom four is the smallest but still nice with its plush simmons queen size bed and easy access to the amenities of the octagon bedroom or master suite.

Now get ready for the master bedroom!! Huge bedroom with doors opening onto the wrap around balcony, it has a huge walk in closet but what is amazing about this is the en-suite bathroom which is as big as another bedroom. The walk in shower cubicle has jets from head to toe, all fully adjustable. Next to this are two vanity units and to the side again is a Jacuzzi bath and within arms reach a wine cooler for those special nights of relaxation

The pool is one of the most amazing luxury pools built in Key West in many years. It has a depth for diving at one end. Stand underneath one of the two luxurious waterfalls and dive off and then swim through a 52 foot canal underneath the gazebo towards the whirlpool/spa, then sit down to enjoy the jets and heat as you relax with a drink in paradise, lean back and enjoy the magnificent palm trees and let your stress melt away.....

At night the backyard playground takes a whole different feel. Imagine in the dark as the hot tub lights up, and different color neon lights fade in and out around the pool and the colors behind the waterfalls change creating one of the most amazing light shows, add music from the surround speakers and the beautiful key west climate and you have the vacation of a lifetime

LOVELY house!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 6 children (ages 17-30) had a terrific time here. Everything is beautiful and well-maintained, and the house is located just a short bike ride away from just about anywhere on Key West.

The BEST for Key West

  • 5 of 5

This house was the BEST home we have ever rented for vacation. Our family travels a few times a year and we rent a property for 7-14 days each time. This house in Key West was the best experience we have had from beginning to end. The owner was the best we have worked with, very quick and responsive, we felt like he really cared about our stay there. When we arrived, we were stunned, the property exceeded our expectations. This has to be the most stunning property in Key West for vacationing. We had our own tropical paradise. Every aspect of this vacation went above and beyond, an absolute blessing!!! You will not be disappointed in your stay, we will be returning.

Key West Utopia!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an amazing trip to Key West, despite Hurricane Matthew's intentions of ruining our vacation! Four couples enjoyed the outstanding accommodations at this well-maintained, one-of-a-kind property and were able to take in the lush foliage that surrounded the spectacular pool, waterfalls and gazebo on this amazing property!

The photos don't do this property its true justice - the place is even more beautiful in person than the photos depict. Paul was very responsive as was Andrew because we got very nervous with the dire hurricane forecasts. They both reassured us that Key West was in no jeopardy and they helped allay any of our fears and our group was so glad that we went and made the drive south from Fort Lauderdale for a memorable vacation getaway!

This is a special property and you should definitely look at this if you are celebrating a special occasion like a big birthday or anniversary. Plenty of room and none of us felt that we were on top of each other. All top of the line appliances and 'creature comforts' and you need to see this place at night to believe it! Excellent pool lighting and sound system outdoors to really enjoy your visit and a great BBQ grill and kitchen to hang out and cook that great surf and turf dinner too...

Private parking in an off-street garage and a great bar area in the house and all of the bedrooms were comfy and the bathrooms were clean and spacious. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property and again, the support that we received from Paul and Andrew was responsive, courteous and extremely helpful. Can't wait to come back soon!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us, 5 couples, booked this house for our vacation,for a week, and had a Fantastic time! None of us wanted to leave! The house is even more beautiful in person, than it is in the pictures! There was plenty of space, and privacy. We never felt as though we were invading each other's space. We had a minor issue with the A/C, which was taken care of immediately. We had plenty of parking to accommodate all of our vehicles. The kitchen and bar area were perfect gathering places, and there was also plenty of room for us all to enjoy an Awesome meal together as well.I am saving the BEST for last...The Pool! WoW! we spent much of our time in the pool and hot tub, it was a tropical oasis! We had a relaxing, yet fun time! We are definitely looking forward to staying here again!

Christmas in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

1400 First Street, Key West is one of the best vacations our family has taken. We absolutely give this vacation property a rating of 5 out of 5 stars. The luxury accommodations are reflected in every aspect of the property. The Bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful and comfortable. There is plenty of natural light coming through the many windows and French doors and the house is always bright. The spacious kitchen has a huge refrigerator and industrial size stove, every cook's dream! There was plenty of seating in the dining room and living room with an upscale entertainment system in each room with loads of channels for everyone. The tropical gardens are beautiful, inviting and well-groomed. We enjoyed the clean pool and jacuzzi and appreciated the privacy of the high walls around the property. The gazebo offered plenty of seating and a state of the art sound system for music outdoors. The property owner was quick to respond with our questions. Our family is planning to return and we can't wait.

Best Rental House - Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

10 of us just returned from a week in Key West. We stayed at this property and candidly never wanted to leave. The house is truly an oasis / Compound. Waterfalls, Gazebos, pool, hot tub, double porches and landscaping to die for. AND THAT IS ONLY THE OUTSIDE. The house has a great deal of parking (hard to find in key west). Inside the house you have a high end kitchen, bar, ice machine and 5 very private bedrooms. The french doors open to 2 double porches. The house is in great shape and we saw no signs of wear and tear. Lastly, the amount of detail in the crown molding and lighting are over the top. This house is highly recommended for a large group. Plenty of room to hang or just get away to corner for a book. LOVED IT / LOVED IT. We will definitely be back.
