About the Property
Ideal for one or two people. Murphy bed on main floor, full bed in loft.
The house sits on the edge of Bahama Village, a fun part of Key West where you will find the funkiness of roosters roaming the streets and men playing dominoes late into the evening. Blue Heaven and La Creperie are just a short stroll down the lane behind the light house. The Six Toed Cat and the Banana Cafe are also good eateries within two blocks.
The Key West Lighthouse and the Hemingway House are in the adjoining block. The Southernmost Point is at one end of Whitehead and Mallory Square at the other. With coffee or drink in hand, you can turn one way to watch the sun rise, and turn the other way to watch the sun set. How's that for simple awesome living!
There is a community swimming pool within 3 blocks. There is no cost and it is a fabulous place to catch the sun ad swim with a fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean.
I chose this spot to live because everything is nearby. You'll love the simplicity of just walking out the door and finding everything close at hand.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

While the beach is only a few blocks away, the community center is 3 blocks away with a very large swimming pool overlooking the ocean. It is free and offers a fun place to sun bathe and swim.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I am a Canadian who travelled to the United States for school and never left. After many years in Michigan I retired to Key West to enjoy the beauty of sunny days and orchids that bloom year round. You will find many on the back deck.
Why the Owner Chose Uptown/Upper Duval, Key West, FL, USA:
I love the simplicity and funkiness of Key West. I can walk or ride my bike anywhere. It's a wonderful community where diversity is embraced and fashion is forgotten. Show up with a pair of shorts and a sunhat and you are all set!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I loved the Coconut from day one because it is cozy, open and life inspiring. A massive Poinciana tree shades it with it's red flowers. Bougainvillea flowers arch over the side gate. Step out the front gate and you will find people eager to say hello and celebrate life. Or sit on the front porch and greet visitors, pointing out which way they should head to find the Southernmost Point or the Hemingway House. You'll feel like you're a local in seconds!
