About the property

6 Bedroom Penthouse Suites, 6 Baths (Sleeps 16)

Ready to escape to Key West? Make the most of your visit and stay at Top of Duval Vacation Rentals, located in the heart of Key West's Old Town. It's like having your own private hotel.

If you are vacationing with family and friends, Top of Duval offers a truly unique layout with six individual suites – four bedroom suites each with their own bedroom, bathroom and kitchen and two family suites with kitchen and bath as well. Join your family and friends in the two family gathering suites for breakfast, dinner or drinks and then retreat to one of the four spectacular bedroom suites for a private getaway.

Perfectly located between Key West’s famous Duval Street, and a charming residential lane in Old Town, this property offers the best of all worlds. One door leads to lively entertainment, shopping and world famous dining; and the other the door to your own private swimming pool and tropical landscaped gardens. Whether you choose to adventure about Old Town Key West or escape to private sunbathing, it can all be done from this truly unique property.

The four bedroom suites are all individually designed and decorated with about 400 luxurious square feet each to relax and enjoy. Choose your getaway – Paradise Suite, Key Lime Suite, Little Palm Suite, Key West Suite.

Vibrant Caribbean colors and décor with relaxed and enjoyable furnishings make up each suite. The four bedroom suites are all positioned toward the rear of the second floor penthouse with direct access to the ground level pool and garden area.

Gather your family or friends in the Cuban Club room for pre-dinner drinks or late night movies. Pull out the queen sized Murphy beds or sofa sleepers for movie time or use the drop leaf tables for games. Breakfast or dinner can be shared with family and friends in the Mile Zero room with its South Beach blue and black décor.

These two family entertainment suites overlook Duval Street and are positioned perfectly for watching all of the day or nighttime activities of the world famous boulevard. Perhaps you will catch one of the many Key West parades!

Club Cuba Suite

Situated in the corner of the penthouse, Club Cuba is the perfect way to experince 90 degree views overlooking Duval Street in an open-concept room. Far from an outdated or run-of-the-mill hotel room, this suite offers vintage style spruced up with bright Cuban colors and textures. It is styled to take guests back to a time when Cuban culture dominated Southern Florida- when Cuban music filled the streets, hand rolled Cuban cigars were everywhere, and Mojitos were the most popular drink on the menu.

Besides style, Club Cuba offers guests 1 (one) Queen pull down bed and 1 (one) Queen Sofa Sleeper. There is room for dining and mixing drinks next to the kitchenette and, in the next room, comfortable seating after a day at the pool or beach. It is complete with all standard hotel accommodations, including a full private bathroom (decorated in a 1950's tropical style), cable television, and internet access, plus access to a washer/dryer.

This is the perfect room for everyone in your party to gather for afternoon drinks. The mojitos never tasted so good!

Mile Zero Suite

This tropical blue suite was nicknamed Mile Zero due to the inviting blue waters you find at the end of US Highway 1. In fact, Top of Duval sits only a short walk away from the southernmost tip of the continental United States. But this suite still has all the mainland amenities, including 1 (one) Queen pull down bed and 1 (one) Queen sofa sleeper. There is room for mixing drinks and dining off of the kitchenette and comfortable seating for you and your guests. In addition, this suite boasts 90 degree views overlooking Duval Street.

Mile Zero is complete with all standard hotel accommodations, including a full private bathroom, cable television, and internet access.

The perfect spot for the group to gather for breakfast or dinner.

Key Lime Pie Suite

Key Lime Pie, voted America's best regional food, makes its home in Key West, Florida. This suite pays homage to one of the tastiest desserts in the country with lime green walls and lemon yellow accents for a truly indulgent experience, just like the dessert. Another corner suite, the Key Lime Pie Suite faces the shaded pool backyard. It offers 2 (two) twin beds that can be combined to make a King bed, as well as 1 (one) Queen sofa sleeper.

A full kitchen is tucked around the corner in the main room, which houses a table for four and a comfortable couch. The bedroom and en-suite can be closed for privacy with bi-fold louver doors. It is complete with all standard hotel accommodations, including a full private bathroom, cable television, and internet access, plus access to a washer/dryer.

Nautical Keys Suite

The Nautical Keys Suite, set back from the action with sleepy views, is a relaxing retreat after a day on the town or in the water. Sandy colored walls and marine blue accents hint at Key West's history as a seafaring town and its people's deep connection to the sea that continues today. This suite offers 1 (one) King bed and 1 (one) Queen sofa sleeper. There is a fully equipped kitchenette, dining for four, and a comfortable couch.

It is complete with all standard hotel accommodations, including a full private bathroom, cable television, and internet access, plus access to a washer/dryer.

Palm Island Suite

Take a cue from Key West's famous historic resident, Ernest Hemingway, who used the island's natural beauty to revive and recuperate. The Palm Island Suite is colored with quintessential Hemingway hues, which can be found at Ernest Hemingway's house (literally) right around the corner. This makes this suite the epitome of tropical island lifestyle.

Of course, Palm Island Suite offers all the same amenities as our other suites, including a full kitchenette, dining for four, 1 (one) King sized bed and 1 (one) Queen sofa sleeper.

Paradise Suite

One of the more colorful suites Top of Duval has to offer, the Paradise Suite captures classic Key West: colorful people, bright sunny days, and an endless amount of fun. It is also one of the bigger suites in the penthouse, offering 1 (one) King sized bed and 1 (one) Queen sofa sleeper. There is a fully equipped kitchenette like the other suites with dining for four. The main room also includes a comfortable couch and is separated from the bedroom and en-suite by bi-fold louver doors.

The Paradise Suite is complete with all standard hotel accommodations, including a full private bathroom, cable television, and internet access, plus access to a washer/dryer.

All Suites are complete with all standard hotel accommodations, including a full private bathroom, cable television, and internet access, plus access to a washer/dryer.

We are a locally owned and locally operated vacation rental.

About June

After many visits to Key West, we couldn't resist the island life any longer. The beaches, food and relaxed lifestyle were the main attractions. We love riding our bikes to the beach or taking a scooter ride around town. We can walk to some of the best restaurants in the country or hang out at the beach. What people don't realize is the history of Key West. Many interesting characters have lived here or visited here and the stories of Key West told.

June purchased this house in 2011

Why June chose Key West

We wanted other people to enjoy the island life during their visits. This property is one of kind property in Key West. We fell in love with the vintage style and location of the property. All you could ask for in this setting.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location! Need I say more........

Everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We rented all 6 rooms and had the whole place to ourselves, including a awesome backyard pool/patio. Everything you need is right there on the property or just a stroll down Duval Street. The rooms were clean, supplied, had cool A/C and the beds were very comfy. Really nice place to stay, hope we can do it again next year!

Best stay in years anywhere!!

  • 5 of 5

Hey June!!

WE HAD A BLAST!! The location, the atmosphere, everything we could have thought of needing right there at our finger tips! Step out the front door onto Duval, a block to Truman, so convenient!! This was our second year in a row to spend the Mardi Gras Holiday time in Key West and the next time we come to Key West, Mardi Gras or otherwise, we will NOT need to look past your contact information to know where we want to stay!! We walked to nearly everything we wanted to go to, no real need for a cab or a car (although on one night of overindulgence, we did get a Peddi-cab back from about 8 blocks away; way too much to drink that night!!). The Key Lime Suite was fantastic!! I didn’t get to see in the other suites but if they are anything near the same, any one of them would completely satisfy us on a future return trip. Very nice but not so that you felt like you couldn’t make yourself at home. We did spend a few days at the various beaches in Key West and the washer/dryer were very handy to keep wet, sandy beach clothes/towels from being any issue at all. Walk in the door, get naked and throw everything in the wash. An hour later, done!! Thanks for the supply of washing fluid! Oh that reminds me, also when we arrived in Key West, I went to a grocery and bought several items I felt we would need. When we got to the Suite, almost every item I had purchased was in the Suite already! We really enjoyed having the fully furnished kitchen, I cooked a quick breakfast almost every morning while she was getting ready.

Oh, and also, the pool was great!! Very secluded and private. We didn’t have as much time to use it as we would have liked to due to our schedule but it was great. I wish I had realized the BBQ pit would be so readily available in the pool area, I would have brought the ingredients to fixed you some of my world famous grilled chicken breasts! I didn’t use the pit but it looked great! The tables and umbrellas were a nice surprise in the pool area, we ate a couple of afternoon snacks out there.

I could go on and on but, let me finish this by saying that you can give my contact information to anyone you’d like if you need verification of anything about your Suites! I will gladly spread the word to anyone I hear mention any possibility that they may be thinking of coming to Key West.

Can’t wait to get back there, thanks for a great experience June!!!

Thanks

Great Time at Top of Duval

  • 4 of 5

Our group of six couples booked all six rooms at Top of Duval for a post-cruise Key West vacation. Top of Duval was perfect. We each had our own private room, but could all get together in the pool/bar-b-q area, which had nice furniture and a lovely setting.

The rooms were very clean and well-stocked and we really appreciated the washer and dryer.

Everything Key West has to offer was within walking distance so we didn't even use our rental cars. To walk out the front door right on to Duval Street was fantastic!

There was a big wind storm the night before we arrived so I called to June to report a lot of leaves in the pool and on the pool deck. She had someone out the very next morning and they did a great job getting everything back in order. The umbrella needs replacing, but we had plenty of shade anyway because of all the lovely trees.

Great time at Top of Duval!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Top of Duval is right in the middle of old Key West, with shops, bars, restaurants and attractions either right across the street or within a few minutes walk, yet it seems so quiet and private when you're inside the house or in the pool area. Everything was just as shown on the website. Most of our family thought this was the best place we had ever stayed; they loved the privacy they had with each having their own little apartment. I would have preferred to have had a living room or gathering place, but because we had great weather the whole time, the pool became that gathering place.

The cleaning, bathroom and pantry supplies were adequate but we did need to bring/buy our own shampoo/hair products. We ate out during the day and cooked at night; the pots and pans weren't meant for gourmet chefs, but they were adequate and we mostly grilled in the pool area.

The Hemingway House, only a block away, was so very interesting even for someone who wasn't a huge reader of Hemingway, as there is so much Key West history wrapped up in it and talked about on the tour. There's a French pastry shop next door and a ton of restaurants, bars and shops right across the street on Duval. Top of Duval is the upstairs of a large building with a gallery downstairs; a stairway leads right down to Duval Street, but we mostly used the back entrance beside the pool and through the private parking area. Almost everything we did was on foot; but we did need the car for going kayaking and getting to grocery stores (2 Publix and a Winn Dixie about 4 miles away.) But some the kids rented bicycles and they went everywhere on bikes.

Thank you, June, for your making your excellent boutique hotel available to us. It was such a fun, relaxing vacation!
