Great property in Key West!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at this great property for a week in May 2017. It close enough to bike or walk everywhere but tucked away on a nice quiet street. Great breakfast place and a grocery store one block away. Nice outdoor space and cozy indoor space. We biked to Duvall every night. Perfect for too! I'm sure we will be back!

A little paradise in Key West

  • 5 of 5

The clever lay out make this apartment feel way bigger than it actually is, with nice separations between living room, kitchen, bedroom, and outside patios. Some of the earlier reviews mention the lacking ac, but that has now been fixed by installing a completely new and fully functioning system which keeps the place perfectly cooled day and night. No worries there.

And if you're still hot you can take the outside, private and secluded shower to cool down, day or night. Even if you're not hot, take the outside shower.

It is perfectly located, not too far from all the bristle and fun of Duval street and Mallory Square, but at the same time lovely and quiet in a residential neighborhood. While walking towards all the fun is doable, it's way more fun to rent beach bikes at the nearby and very friendly Bike Shop Rentals at Truman.

We had an awesome time here, and want to thank Michel and Narceline for letting us stay here.

Highly recommended.

Wonderful secluded right in the heart of key west. Stayed for a month and it was such a great place

  • 5 of 5

Tucked back and secluded very private little place. House was small but we were all comfy hanging on the porch and inside. No central air but window units work great. Everything was awesome and the owner was extremely pleasant.

Charming unique cottage

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I spent 3 nights in this lovely unit, which is hidden behind a little bungalow in the mid-town residential district. The artwork and finishings in the cottage are unique and beautiful, making for a light , airy and comfortable space. We especially enjoyed the large screened-in porch and the outdoor shower. The location is 2 short blocks from White Street we found our Cuban coffee and breakfast every morning as well as smoothies at a yoga studio and a grocery store. The futons were not as comfy as the master bed. The owner was very accommodating and available if we ever had any problems/needs, which we didn't!

We had a blast in keywest and really enjoyed our stay in this bungalow. It was in the perfect spot...quiet but not too far away from the action. We would definitely stay again.
