The suite is located within a larger penthouse that consists of 6 suites. The suite is individually designed and decorated with 400 luxurious square feet each to relax and enjoy. Vibrant Caribbean colors and décor with relaxed and enjoyable furnishings are the setting to this suite.

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. 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.

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

Traveling with other friends or family members, then Top of Duval can be rented as a whole Penthouse. See VRBO Listings #496749 and 496751. Let's us tell you all of your options. Just call and we can configure this Penthouse in many ways.

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.

June purchased this condo in 2011

Why June chose Old Town

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 condo unique

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Palm Island Suite Top of Duval

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week in KW. Top of Duval is well located, our room at the back was quiet (minus the night of drunken friends of another guest) and clean with plenty of room. No need for a car-just rented bikes for the week and could easily ride to anywhere on the island.

Perfect For Our Key West Visit

  • 5 of 5

The Palm Island suite was a great place to stay. It is located in the 800 block of Duval Street so an easy walk to Mallory Square and the sunset pier and an easy walk the other direction to the Southern-Most point. The suites are on the 2nd floor (no elevator) of a large building with a quiet art gallery downstairs. The back of the property has 4 off-street parking spaces and gated access to a beautiful spa/pool area with lounge chairs and BBQ facilities. The front steps go directly onto Duval street with many shops, walkup drink bars, restaurants and taverns close by. Be sure to check out Pinchers in the next block; it was the only non-smoking bar/restaurant we found; they have great food, live music and all day happy hour with 2-for-1 drinks. Even though the property is very close to "the action", we were not bothered by street noise in our suite or out at the pool. The suite was very clean and comfortable for 2 people; the bed was comfortable and the suite contained enough linens for our 5-day stay. While we didn't do a lot of cooking, the kitchen had adequate pots, pans, bowls, silverware, etc. Also, everything in the suite was in good working order and the TV and internet service was reliable. The refrigerator did not have an ice maker but ice cube trays were provided. The suite's living area is somewhat small and we did not use the sofa-bed but space would have been cramped with more than 2 people. The on-site laundry facility was a great feature. The owner was very responsive, great to work with and promptly refunded our damage deposit. Overall, we really enjoyed the property and would definitely rent there again when in Key West.

Palm Island Suite- Top of Duval

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom suite is located on Duval Street in the heart of Key West, but far enough away to not be bothered by excessive noise late at night. It has a king size bed, bathroom, kitchen,small living area with TV and sofa bed, and an outside pool. The apartment is clean and comfortable. There are four parking spaces that are a part of the property; just check with the owner if one is available for your stay. It's a short walking distance to restaurants, bars and stores. Highly recommend!

Comfortable and quaint

  • 5 of 5

Just as pictured. We enjoyed the convenient location to Duval shopping and restaurants. Several blocks from Mallory Square beach but we walked there anyway. Key West sunsets never disappoint. Be was comfortable and although we didn't use the kitchen much, it was nice to start the day with coffee and cereal. The pool was plus after a day of activities. Loved the whole package!
