About the property

Whitehead House is a unique two-story single family attached home nestled beside the Audubon House in Old Town Key West. Hidden behind the most photographed "prohibition fence" in Key West, this three bedroom, two bathroom home includes a large sunny pool and patio as well as off street parking (1 space for normal-size vehicle). An outdoor table with umbrella provides space to unwind while grilling your fresh catch. Collect ripe star fruit from surrounding trees and enjoy this unique treat right from your own yard!

Upon entering the house you'll discover lots of open space for your group to be comfortable and spread out. Two dining tables provide ample seating for meals next to the kitchen. The kitchen and dining spaces are decorated in bright and eclectic decor which reflects the world-traveled taste of the owner. The country style kitchen is equipped with appliances and features open storage shelves.

The relaxed living room is surrounded by bright sunny windows and offers comfortable seating for your entire group. Gather together for a game of cards, a classic movie or to review your exciting day of Key West adventures.

Simple bedrooms give this home a relaxed Key West feel. Just off the dining area downstairs are two bedrooms with a shared bathroom.

This basic, no- frills home is best suited for those looking to be "in the mix" of Duval Street. Whitehead House is a comfy place to relax together with an unbeatable and convenient location. Please note that due to the close proximity for lower Duval Street bars

I bring my company to Key West every year and we always stay in this house - have every year since we found it a few years ago. Joyce and the staff at the rental office are incredible and easy to work with, the house is in a great location and the pool is great! We definitely recommend this - just not on the week we come! :-)

House was in great location; so we did not have to walk as far to enjoy all our favotire places. Remember to bring ear plugs as it is really close to the some of the clubs. We would have paid a little extra to have the pool heated. :) All-in-all we would rent this place again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review! We truly appreciate your business and your trust in us. We are very happy that you gave us all 5 stars. It is true that Whitehead House can be loud at night due to the location. We try to inform our guests about that, so it's good you mentioned it in your review. As for the pool, unfortunately it is a non-heated pool. We look forward to you staying with us again!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our 7th vacation rental in key west and was by far the best location and place we have stayed. The house is a little bohemian but we found that charming. The living areas were spacious and well stocked. There were four adults in our group and the second bedroom was cramped but we made it work.we had an awesome trip. be careful if bringing two cars, parking is a premium there.

Reviewer Comments:

the property at whitehead was in an ideal location and we were very impressed with the size of the property, until night fell the noise level in the upstairs bedroom was almost too much if you weren't a stay out all night person, I had to buy ear plugs. the music was coming from the smoking tuna bar and seemed to travel right into the bedroom until 2 & 3 am, the rooms downstairs seemed to be a bit quieter. very disappointed that the 2nd bathroom that was on the main floor was a jack and jill and there were no locks on the doors and the shower was so small an adult could not shower in it so we all shared the upstairs bathroom. there was more than enough room for 6 adults but the bathroom as made for kids and the twin beds were uncomfortable for adults. we love keywest and this is our third trip so when we come back we would not stay at this location again. so if you like quieter evenings this would not be the place.

Loved loved the house!! True key west feel with perfect location!!! Within walking distance of everything you need! The only drawback was the pool... Though beautiful and pristine WAY to cold to use!! Definitely needs a heater...but of a bummer being the yard was perfect for swimming and relaxing!

Reviewer Comments:

I've been going back to KW for 10 years now, staying at different condos every time. The Whitehead House exceeded my expectations. The location is great -- a mere mosey to Mallory Square for the sunset celebration and easy stumbling distance from Captain Tony's. I loved being right behind the Smoking Tuna because I enjoyed sitting in the back courtyard and listening to the performers there. You can hear them pretty clearly, as well as any bands playing at Grunts. I could see how that would amount to a miserable experience for people who are mistakenly seeking some kind of solitary respite while staying close to the action. Not me. I loved it. The facilities are nice. I love that the place has plenty of quirk and charm -- that's what you get with a proper KW condo! Chances are, you won't be spending much time inside because, well, why go all the way to KW and hole up inside? I did, however, spend a lot of time in the back courtyard. I sat under the pitch apple tree by the pool and enjoyed the salt air. I garnished my bloody Marys with star fruit from the star fruit tree. I relaxed. I wandered about KW and got back to home base rather easily before heading out to wander around again. I highly recommend this place... that is, unless you are seeking to book it when I'm seeking to rebook it next year. In that case, you should look elsewhere. ;)
