About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

“Southard Comfort” is true Island living in downtown Historic Old Town Key West.

Two story, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath plus outdoor shower

Nancy & Carl welcome you to their Key West vacation home! This established rental is a dazzling property, and we are committed to continuing its reputation of excellence.

Located just 6 blocks to Duval Street and 4 blocks to the Historic Seaport. This home has off street parking for two vehicles, and you will be able to walk to local restaurants, galleries, the beach, and nightlife!

There are many vacation homes in Key West, but none captures the unique charm of life in Key West like this beautiful home on Southard Street. This is much more than a place to stay; it’s living the Key West experience to the fullest. When you walk into the living room, you’re just a few steps from the pool with its custom waterfall. The expansive French doors can be left open to make the most of those tropical breezes. On really warm days, close up and relax with the central air conditioning. As you look around, you’ll be struck by the fact that this is a home designed for comfort and relaxation. One space flows right into the other, from the inside to the outside, from the living room to the kitchen.

In the kitchen you will find a gas range and ample granite counter tops. You have 3 dining options, dine al fresco by the pool just through the French doors of the kitchen, dine at the granite center island, or in the formal dining room for family meals.

The first floor half bath is large and has a beautiful stone sink. The front loading washer and dryer are conveniently located here with plenty of space for folding.

Take the stairs to the 2nd floor. The master bedroom with a King bed and en suite bathroom, is itself an experience. Each bedroom has its own TV with cable. The second and third bedrooms have Queen beds and share a central bathroom with twin vanities and a full claw foot tub. Sleep with the soft tropical breezes or enjoy the central air conditioning. Once again, every detail and furnishing reminds you that this is Key West, and you are living the life of a local while you are here.

Your stay at Southard Comfort would not be complete without enjoying the private outdoor shower. You can start your day with a relaxing shower under the tropical morning sun or end your day showering under the evening stars. It is also perfect for rinsing off the beach sand or ocean salt.

Digital cable TV with expanded service and high-speed Internet access are included.

This is our second time staying at Southard Comfort. Each time we have met the owners and they have always been very friendly and engaged. The house is nicely furnished, the kitchen is well equipped, and for a family with children it's perfect. The location is nice because it is close enough to restaurants and shops, but just far enough away to be quiet and off the beaten path. Although it has a parking spot, we have always just rented bikes and pedaled everywhere. Fausto's for groceries is a 5 minute bike ride away. The pool is small, and the area around it is very shady, but it's an otherwise pleasant space. It's nice to have a washer and dryer. My only criticism is that the master bed mattress should be replace. It's soft and lumpy and not comfortable. I have made the property management company aware of this and hope the owner will take action on this for the benefit of future renters. Overall, big thumbs up for Southard Comfort!

Our weeklong stay at Southard was wonderful. The home is lovely and well suited for families or small groups. Our concierge Phil went above and beyond to help us with our needs while we were there. The owners were very quick to address a very small issue while we were there. Great location that is a short bike ride from Duval Street fun. The heated pool was excellent and all the furniture was very comfortable. We all loved the outdoor shower. The house was well stocked with everything you would need and the owners were kind enough to leave us some small snacks and cold beers to kick off our stay. The house is near several excellent restaurants-- El Siboney, Cafe Sole, Azur, Seven Fish, Mangia Mangia. The one thing I would have people be aware of is that all of the bedrooms are upstairs and the slatted doors on all of the doors (including bathrooms) make it a little less private than I would have preferred. Overall, an excellent property and we would definitely stay there again!

Upon arrival we were greeted by Nancy and Carl. In our brief passing you can tell they are such wonderful people. Carls best advice was "dont wait till the last day to check out the outdoor shower". Dang was he right! It was so easy to jump in rinse off and a nice dip in the pool after a day of riding bikes or laying on the beach. It truly made for a magical trip to the Keys. We had a party of 6 and there was plenty of room to move around in the house if you wanted. The veranda and pool were so very nice with an adult beverage after after a day in the high 90 temps. AC AND fans in each room allowed you to get that cool night breeze if you so desired. Also within a 3-4 minute bike ride you could be at no less than 6 different restaurants and 2 markets. So not only is the home itself a gem, inice location.

Map

ABOUT THE HISTORIC OLD TOWN KEY WEST NEIGHBORHOOD:

The heart, and some would say the soul, of Key West is Old Town. Originally the city’s center, Old Town is today the central location for Key West’s historic district and tourist destinations.

Old Town���s Duval Street, which stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean is the main artery in Key West. Intersected by Truman Avenue, Duval Street provides the backbone from which Key West’s historic homes, seaport and cultural centers extend.

Old Town, particularly those areas North of Truman, is the neighborhood most people think of when they think “Key West.” Its homes are modest bungalows and magnificent mansions that live side-by-side along Fleming, Eaton, Margaret and Southard.

Old Town is generally the area west of White Street. Locals divide Old Town into two parts: South of Truman and North of Truman. Bahama Village, the neighborhood settled by Bahamian immigrants, is officially part of Old Town and it has maintained its character and distinctive Bahamian culture.

Old Town reflects the island’s long history as a seaport and cigar manufacturing town. Wealthy landowners built the magnificent Victorian and Gothic mansions surrounded by the small cottages that have become quintessential Key West. Since the 1970s, renovation and restoration of these homes has been a major part of Key West culture.

Beautifully updated inside and historically significant outside, these homes reflect the partnerships among homeowners, architects, builders and landscape professionals.

Strict construction and architectural guidelines and restoration and renovation consistent with Key West’s history have ensured Key West’s Old Town maintains its exceptional sense of place.

• Best features: Close to restaurants, entertainment and the seaport. Beautiful historic architecture. People watching. Quiet lanes. Duval Street. Tropic Cinema, art galleries, Hemingway Home and the Historic Seaport.

• Getting around: Great for walking. Stick to scooters and small cars. Parking is usually at a premium.

• Street boundaries: Old Town North-of-Truman: White Street to Whitehead Street and south to Truman. Includes the Key West Cemetery and Bahama Village. Old Town South-of-Truman: Eisenhower on the east to Fort Street on the west. Truman to United on the south with several blocks extending to the Atlantic Ocean next to the Casa Marina area.
