About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Tropical Retreat, at 519 Catherine Street, is on a quiet lane half a block off the upscale Upper end of Duval St. where there are many sophisticated restaurants, high-end art galleries and shops. Downtown Duval St. is within easy walking distance from Tropical Retreat to enjoy the exciting nightlife, music, bars and fun Key West has to offer. The Southernmost Point and the sandy beaches of the Atlantic are a short 4-block, 7 minute walk away.

Built in the 1920's, this incredibly spacious bungalow-style home has 12 foot high ceilings and large, sunny rooms. The main house includes a living room with queen sleeper sofa, dining room with a very large table to seat your group, a fully-equipped kitchen with high end features and fixtures and powder room. The 2 bedrooms feature a queen bed in one, the other with two twins which can be converted to a king bed. Each bedroom has an ensuite tiled bath. The third bedroom with king bed includes a private bath and efficiency kitchen and is in the stand-alone cottage adjacent to the pool at the rear of the property. The sunny 13' x 25' heated pool and deck sit in a totally secluded, private area surrounded by tropical and lush bougainvillea, hibiscus and palms.

Tropical Retreat also has the added bonus of off street private parking which makes it a rare gem in Old Town!

Reviewer Comments:

We were in town for our daughters wedding. This house was the perfect gathering place for family and friends. The location was perfect. The kitchen was great for cooking breakfast or dinner. The pool was so much fun! We would definitely stay here again. We particularly liked having a bathroom for every bedroom and the outdoor space around the pool. A few little "nice to have's" would be quieter air conditioning (although it kept us nice and cool!!) and better lighting in the kitchen. The pictures are pretty accurate, but the house ended up being larger than I expected mostly due to the high ceilings. It was very clean and tidy. Washer and dryer worked great. An added bonus was the shuttle service provided by Key West Vacation Rentals. Steve dropped us off and picked us up several times. Always with a smile! Thanks!! Try Camille's for breakfast at the end of the block away from Duval and La Grinote french bakery on Duval. Delicious!!

Reviewer Comments:

Layout of the property was perfect for our multi generational family. Nicely decorated but only bare necessities in the kitchen (but we didn't cook much,either!). Our biggest complaint would be maintenance (broken door handles, leaky fridge, pool dirty, drain clogged) although response was quick and sporadic unpredictable housekeeping.

This house was so perfect for my family vacation! The location, the pool, the decor, the amount of room, the adorable poolside cabin - it really was exactly what we were hoping for!

It starts with key west rental picking you up at the airport in their luxury shuttle to check in. Great. The property was phenomenal. The main house has 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms plus a 1/2 bath off the kitchen. Good size fully equipped kitchen. Dining room with seating for 6. Nice size living room. TV's in all the rooms. Plenty of air conditioners and fans. Great! The Casita next to the pool was fun, king bed, bathroom, air conditioning, fan and TV. My wife and I stayed there and enjoyed it. Good size private pool, very clean. We stayed for 5 nights and used it every day. Nice gas grill with plenty of propane. 100 yards from the quiet end of Duval street. I cannot say enough about this property. Fantastic experience!!!!

Reviewer Comments:

I have been going to Key West for over 25 years and am very familiar with the accommodations offered on the island. This rental service does a very good job. I actually just tried to book through them for a weekend in July upon returning. We rented the home we selected because we were traveling with a party of 8 and thought this layout would be more social than individual hotel rooms. There is a difference in staying somewhere like this instead of Santa Maria, Hyatt, or Ocean Key House. But, it's part of the true island experience and we would stay in this home again. If you go with the understanding that things are a little different in KW you will have an awesome time in this home. We felt fortunate for the opportunity!
