The historic cottage features two bedrooms, one with king pillow top bed, 42' wall flat screen TV the other with queen pillow top bed, 42' flat screen TV. Also, the wonderful loft has two twin beds and a private sitting area for relaxing as well as a small wall-mounted flat screen TV.

The great room with vaulted ceiling at the rear of the cottage has a vaulted ceiling and double French doors across the wall that open up to a wooden deck surrounded for privacy with fencing and tropical foliage, heated pool with table and chairs. The great room consists of a living room and kitchen. The living room features a 32' Phillips flat screen (which is adjustable for sweeping movement and viewing), and comfortable, intimate seating.

The elegant and fully equipped kitchen with vaulted ceiling has a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator with ice-maker, stove, garbage disposal, glass top stove, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and everything you could desire to prepare a gourmet feast! There is a newly refinished and repaired Tamarind dining table with 6 teak dining chairs just though the French doors on the deck, and a high bar/dining table in the kitchen area that seats two.

Since Hurricane Irma we have: replaced all rear area fencing and most rear area plantings; had the pool refinished; replaced the pool filter; had the tamarind table repaired and refinished; repaired the air conditioning.

Best of the Best!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Key West for the past 35 years and Mojitoville is the best rental we have ever booked.We love every thing about the house. The house is well maintained and it is in a safe location where you can almost walk to any where on the Island you choose.The owners are the most honest landlords that I have ever dealt with in all my years of visiting Key West. They bend over backwards to make you stay great ! Back in June-July 2018 Fran and David Brown

Everything the same as before Irma

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed to not only the property but the island post Irma. Very little damages or change. Some foliage missing and minor cosmetic damages but all in all, very good shape. Mojitoville fair equally as well. So glad we went and can not wait to go again. Love Tom, Ruzena and all the Conchs :)

Highly recommend, again, to all those even thinking about going. You will not be sorry.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Dan. It's nice having friends in the home. Glad that the post-Irma visit worked out well for you folks. The next time you visit the pool will be re-plastered, the fences will be replaced and the plantings will be restored. Have a great winter. Tom and Susan

Mojitoville - Piece of Paradise on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Mojitoville was the perfect setting for our 1 month, KW vacation. Everything was provided and the amenities made our stay so easy. Right in the center of all the city's activities, sites and restaurants we were in walking distance of most of the popular attractions. The private pool was the icing on the cake.

Great house in a Great location!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Mojitoville for just over a month. The house is very comfortable and the location can't be beat! I spend a lot of time in Key West and have stayed in many long term vacation rentals all over Old Town and this was by far my favorite! I loved the proximity to Eaton St. Seafood Market and the Mojitoville kitchen and outdoor gas grill had everything I needed to cook up some fresh seafood!

The entire house was well decorated and stocked with everything I needed. There are also many helpful labels and notes explaining where things are and how to control lights, ceiling fans, TV's, etc.

I look forward to staying at Mojitoville again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your gracious words, Tom. Like you, we love the location. We find it interesting that we are getting so many rentals from couples and singles even though there is room for 6 in the house. I guess that the location is our best selling point. Again, thanks. I hope that we cross paths once again at Shots and Giggles. I'll buy you a shot and we'll try to make you giggle! Tom and Susan

The Perfect Key West "home away from home"

  • 5 of 5

Mojitoville not only was everything as advertised BUT more. The owners (Estep's) and Ruzina (Property Manager) were wonderful and a pleasure to work with. Best experience thus far in our 7 trips south. The house, well I wish we had taken pictures but not being camera or phone bugs, we have no visuals to share but believe me, you will experience the real Key West just from walking through the front gate. The house is well decorated and has that lovely home away from home feeling. The house is well maintained, roomy and has all the amenities you could ask for. The pool was just the right size for cooling off from the "warm" August weather. As for location, one could not ask or plan for better. In close proximity to the waterfront and only a few blocks from Duval. A few more blocks onto Mallory Square. Just perfect! We will certainly stay at Mojitoville again... and hopefully soon :)
