About Lynda

My husband and I grew up in Philadelphia, Pa. and met in Margate New Jersey in a great local watering hole called 'Maloney's'. We discovered Key West in 1995, and it was love at first sight! We've been back every year since and still find new things we didn't know existed before!! Our dream came true when we bought our vacation home in late 2005 just following hurricane Wilma. The Brass Palm Villa has come a long way since then, much thanks to my Mom and Dad for all their help and hard work. We've rented many homes prior to owning, and truly believe it's very important that we create a vacation home that feels like home. We enjoy adding special touches every year and little details that we have come to love about Key West living. We hope you enjoy every moment!

Lynda purchased this house in 2005

Why Lynda chose Key West

Key West is extraordinary and so is this home! Whether you have been here for a few hours during a cruise or a long vacation. 'It's a magical kind of medicine.. (J.Buffett). This home has that magic. It's spacious and tranquil. The setting is simply perfect. Why Casa Marina section? The first home we rented was in the Casa Marina section of Key West. We loved every inch of that house and dreamed about owning our own one day. Ironically, 10 years later we bought the house right around the corner. Casa Marina is an exquisite neighborhood. Many year round residents, well maintained properties and beautiful palm trees everywhere.

What makes this house unique

Key West living is what it's all about. And at Brass Palm Villa you can't help but kick back and enjoy 'living' in paradise! Dogs are family, bring them along! Brass Palm Villa is perfect, safe and fun for the four legged members of your family!

LOCATION! Our home is in the best location. It's close to the beach, dog park and Duval street, yet far enough to enjoy the tranquility.

Louie's Backyard is just a walk away. Morning bikes rides to breakfast at Blue Heaven or Pepe's, then come back to enjoy lazy afternoons floating in the pool under the palms. The outdoor living spaces are private, spacious and perfect for quiet moments or entertaining. Everything about this property is simply peaceful and truly serene. We've strived to capture a Key West chic decor and style of living. We hope you come to love it as much as we do!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I've stayed in many homes in Key West, but this one is by far the most wonderful! It is close to everything... beach, Duval Street, nightlife, shopping, you name it! This is the fifth season for our family (dog included) at the Brass Palm Villa and each time we stay here we are never disappointed. The home is immaculate, decorated beautifully and with such attention to every detail. Thank you for making this the best vacation we could ever had! See you next year!!

If only every vacation rental was like this ....

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many properties over the years and like most people have became wary of what was said about their experience. What I can tell you from our experience is what everyone has said about this property, the caretaker and owner are all true. It was a extremely pleasurable experience from the very beginning of booking the rental to the day we check out. The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. The Home is very clean, well furnished and very well maintained. It is in a great location and is easy to get to the many attractions. The real indicator of was it a good experience is ... would you rent " The Brass Palm Villa " again or go back ? The answer with out question is ...yes

Amazing Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

Super close to the beach and other amenities, this fantastic property has all you need for a perfect stay! Immaculate landscaping, awesome pool and outdoor dining/ lounge area, open concept kitchen/ living area, comfy beds, and a great location. The owner and caretaker are incredibly easy to deal with, answering all questions promptly. We came down for our wedding and could not have asked for a better property! We even brought our 2 dogs and even they were sad to go back home! Cannot wait to go back!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything that you look for in a vacation home. From the fully stocked kitchen, the comfortable and quiet living areas and the outside deck and pool area, this house has it all. Close enough to all that Duval Street has to offer yet quiet and off the beaten path. Everything is just a short bike ride away. The owner and caretaker were both extremely easy to deal with. We are definitely going to come back to Key West and can't wait to stay at "Brass Palm Villa"

Key West Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have so many wonderful memories of our stay at Brass Palm Villa, I don't know where to begin! Imagine opening your doors each morning to outdoor living at its finest, relaxing and floating under the palms in a beautifully landscaped heated pool, dining under the stars in your own private courtyard, parking your car and walking or biking to all your favorite places! This is truly paradise in every possible way! The beach, a great gym, shopping and the best restaurants are very close by! Everything you could possibly need or want is right there for you. The weekly pool service and landscapers keep the property pristine. In fact, because of all of the awesome amenities, it is really difficult to force yourself to leave! We loved every minute there, and we just can't wait to return again!
