1800 Atlantic Blvd

Please enter your dates and click 'detailed price' for rate. This is the all inclusive rate including the 12.5% tax. You can book directly on this page. Just hit the 'Book It' button and set up an account. I live in the building year round and do my best to make the process as painless as possible. Please keep in mind although the maximum occupancy is six, four is ideal comfort wise.

This condo underwent a gut renovation late 2011 and is now handicap friendly. Located only two miles from Duval the area truly offers the best of both worlds, close to downtown without most of the partying noise. 1800 Atlantic sits on 400 feet of oceanfront property. An Olympic sized heated pool and spa sit ocean side surrounded by a lushly landscaped garden. Plan a picnic or barbecue in the shade of this beautiful garden. When you are done relaxing by the pool, hit the courts on one of three lighted tennis courts or the handball court. Enjoy Smathers beach without the drive, located only a few blocks from the building. Smathers offers sailboat, paddle board, hobie cat, chair, and umbrella rentals. Parasailing is also available. An over sized sidewalk runs parallel along the beach for walks, jogging, biking, or rollerblading. Several chairs, coolers, and beach towels are available in the condo. Return to 1800 Atlantic and gaze at the ocean while relaxing on your private balcony. Large living area compared to most condo's in Key West (1350sf). I should point out the guest bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and the master bedroom does not. So the master runs a bit cooler than the guest room.

Once I receive either an e mail or booking request I supply my cell number. With three condos calls from people looking to negotiate we're getting a little out of hand so I took the number down. Thank you for considering one of my condo's. Google Toms key west vacation rentals to find my web page which contains the check in process and rental agreement.

Disclaimer: Renovation work is allowed at the building 9am - 5pm weekdays. Usually its quiet here but unfortunately there are exceptions. Neighbors give no warning of renovation work and even building management does little / nothing keeping us up to date on general work on the building. The safest bet is a hotel to avoid such surprises. Anything major that I see coming will give a heads up about though.

7. CANCELLATIONS - If a cancellation is made between the time of booking and 30 days prior to arrival the $100 deposit will be forfeited. The full balance is due 30 days prior to arrival. If a cancellation is made within the 30 days prior to arrival 50% will be refunded. Keep in mind this is only 50% of the base rate I would hold onto. NOT the grand total.

Beautiful condo in Key West

  • 5 of 5

Tom's Parrot Perch is a beautiful condo in the Key West area! Near Smathers beach and only a taxi ride away from Duval street! The condo is nicely remodeled and the pictures do it justice! It seemed larger than expected and there were enough supplies to get you started for your stay! The beds were very comfortable and the condo has about anything you would need for your Key West vacation! The condo also provides covered parking if you have a vehicle. Tom is very helpful and also lives in the complex so he's always nearby if needed!

We will definitely consider his rentals for future Key West stays!

Great Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed in Tom's vacation rental at 1800 Atlantic Blvd. Having stayed at a number of different VRBO properties, Tom has the rental provisioned with everything you need. The condo is decorated beautifully. The location is great, away from Duval and quieter in nature, but convenient to get to everything. Having stayed at other properties that didn't meet our expectations, we really appreciated Tom's efforts and all it has to offer. Would stay there again in the future. The only negative was how to get into the secure building to get the keys. We waited outside for 30 plus minutes for someone to happen to come out. This could be improved. Other than than, it was perfect. Thank you Tom.

The property was amazing! It is updated with all the necessary items needed for a nice stay.

  • 5 of 5

When we walked into the Condo, we couldn't believe our eyes. We were very impressed with all the little touches to make it feel like a home and not a hotel. It was beautiful with everything we needed for a fantastic vacation. Tom even provided soap, shampoo, chairs and towels for the beach along with beach toys for children. We loved sitting outside in the morning with our coffee and watching the sun rise. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Next year, God willing, we will be back and looking at Tom's Parrot Perch again. Thank you Tom for making our vacation perfect. The tips you gave us about places to go, restaurants, parking and whom to see about tours was great. We took your advice on many of these tips.

Wonderful Spring Break Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Tom's Parrot Perch was the perfect place for our family of four for our recent stay in Key West. We prefer staying in condos over hotels when we vacation as it gives us the flexibility to cook some meals in and to spread out a bit. Our stay here was wonderful! There is not one thing I can think of that Tom didn't provide. Traveling by plane, we weren't able to pack items such as beach towels, chairs, a cooler, beach bag, etc. Not problem--Tom's thought of it all. There was plenty of space for all of us to get ready and to hang out when we were resting up to go back out. Our boys enjoyed watching the kids' DVDs. The renovations give this condo a newer feel and exceeded our expectations. The location is next to Smather's Beach and an easy walk to the White Street Pier (where you can catch one of the trolley tours), Higgs Beach, and the West Martello Tower--loved walking through the beautiful gardens maintained by the Key West Garden Club. US1 is right beside the condos, but we were not bothered at all by noise. We rented a car because we were going to be doing a day trip up the Lower Keys, but we could have easily biked to Old Town. The reservation, check-in and check-out process was really easy. We would definitely recommend Tom's Parrot Perch and would love to come stay here again!
