About the Property

House, 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms

Relax poolside on a private deck, enjoying the bougainvillaea draped over the masonry privacy fence. Banana trees and many varieties of palm offer shade to the house and gardens. The house has been remodeled in the last 5 years with an enormous great- room and large windows that invite ocean breezes. The kitchen is a chef's delight with a 6 burner Vulcan commercial stove and additional convection oven. Meals can be enjoyed under the covered lanai or in the kitchen. Book shelves holding hundred of books are available for your reading delight. The bedrooms are comfortable with king beds in two bedrooms and two full sized beds in the third bedroom. The bathrooms have been recently updated with double rain-head showers, ceramic tile floors and ceramic tile walls. There is a private outdoor shower on the deck. The house is very clean and simply decorated. The pool is heated to 85 degrees during the cool months. If you need secure parking for your motorcycle, bike or kayak, it is available in the driveway behind a security fence. The beach is a mere 4 block walk, as are the public tennis and pickle ball courts. Within easy biking distance are world class restaurants such as Louie's Backyard, El Siboney and Salute.

Car: Not Necessary

Walk to the beach or wander in the historic town. You can also choose to chill and stay on the property to enjoy a nap or swim in the private, heated pool. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, but it is an easy bike ride to the action on Duval Street and local seafood/Cuban cuisine.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: We have lived in Key West since 1992. I am sure that you will find this tropical and private retreat, calming to your spirit, but close enough to Duval and the beach for major fun. We are from Michigan (Ann Arbor and E. Lansing) and the S.F. Bay area (Sonoma County). We spend our free time fishing, biking and hiking.

Why the Owner Chose Midtown (Key West, FL, USA):
Read our reviews...we go out of our way to provide a clean house with heated pool, private decks, complete kitchen and plenty of space to relax.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The sun is almost up. Catch sunrise over the water standing on White Street Pier. Walk down White for some Cuban Coffee and order breakfast at one of the restaurants suggested on the visitor's guide in the house. By now you're's pool time and you need a bit of a nap. During a late lunch at the house, your eye catches some reading in the dining room library. The afternoon is devoted to the beach or visiting the sights. A quick dip in the warm pool refreshes and a rinse in our new outdoor but private shower finishes the effort. Friends are coming over for a poolside barbeque. After dinner it is a short ride to the Red Barn Theater for a play. Dessert for the day is some of the best ice cream you can imagine followed by a short bike ride home. You lie in a bed with the french doors open to the pool and fall asleep in record time...dreaming of tomorrow's adventure.
