Recently-Renovated Historic Old Town Home Within Walking Distance Of Everything.
This recently-restored historic Conch house is an excellent vacation home. The kitchen and bathrooms have been redone, but still respect their historic roots. There are antique Dade County pine walls and floors throughout the house. The open-concept kitchen, living room and dining area have fantastic glass doors which create loads of natural light under a vaulted ceiling as well as convenient access to the outdoor deck area. The new kitchen offers brand-new appliances, including dishwasher, microwave, full oven/stove and refrigerator with crushed ice and water in the door. Brand-new garbage disposal and commercial grade Maytag 2000 laundry facilities are added conveniences. Central air conditioning is a luxury enjoyed in only the best historic rentals, including Mango Cottage. The natural wood features continue through the kitchen with custom maple kitchen cabinets with glass doors. There are smart TVs in each bedroom and a 42 inch smart TV in the living room. All TVs come with HBO and Netflix streaming capabilities. High-end furnishings and antique pieces add to the cottage feel of the home, including the wonderful collection of antique swimsuits in custom shadowboxes.
All bedrooms have brand-new plush Simmons AirCool ComforPedic memory foam mattresses.
The master bedroom has a king bed with an en suite bathroom, the second bedroom has a queen bed. There is a great loft which is accessed by funky alternating ship-style stairs, custom-made as well. The loft has two twin extra long beds with custom storage drawers beneath and of course a smart TV for your guests. The brand-new bathrooms boast custom tile work in the showers and on the floors.
This fantastic home is located on Varela Street and is in a wonderful residential neighborhood just a couple blocks from Fausto's Food Market and a short walk to Duval Street. It is also just a short walk to Higgs Beach, the White Street Pier and Key West Garden Club's Civil War Fort West Martello.
The outdoor patio offers a wonderfully warm hot tub, ideal for the cool Key West evenings along with outdoor dining for four under umbrella shade, as well as two comfortable lounge chairs for working on your Key West tan. The comfortable chairs on the front porch invite you to enjoy early-morning cafe con leche from nearby Sandy's Cuban Cafe while perusing the local newspaper or just enjoying the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. We are starting construction on a private pool in July and will be completed by the end of September

Comfortable and well appointed
Very nice place, clean and comfortable with all the modern amenities and a convenient location.
Three of us took a break from the winter snows and cold. We arrived and were instantly in love with the cottage. It is clean, comfortable, impeccably designed and decorated. There is no way to say enough good things. We each had our own area. Navigating the stairway was fun not challenging as some have claimed (and we were all age 70+). If any of us go back to Key West we would definitely use HomeAway again as they were very professional and accommodating.
We loved staying in this cottage for a week in January. Very nice accommodations , thoughtful amenities. Quiet neighborhood. but near shops and restaurants.
A charming place
Thank you for taking time to share your experience at Mango Cottage with us. We are glad to hear this lovely cottage was up to your standards and that you enjoyed all the amenities the house had to offer. We do hope that you come back and stay with us again soon. Key West Hideaways Staff
Charming house in Key West
This house was great on the inside and very modern. Comfortable beds and a bonus of having the great porch and hot tub.
Downside was the parking, which was difficult. Street parking however you can’t park in the residential spots which is the majority of the spots on the street. It was walkable to get to Duval Street however was far. We would Uber out at night.
Charming place that i can’t wait to go back to
Where to start...well i had this trip planned for about 6 months as a surprise trip for my Hubby’s 40th bday and my sisters engagement that i knew was about to happen. Well then Irma happened! We went about 3 weeks after Irma hit, thankfully there was no damage to the property, we arrived late in the evening and they had lights and TVs on waiting for us so we didn’t have to walk into a dark house. The house is even cuter and cozier in person then in the pics, there were extras like shampoo and body wash in both bathrooms, sunscreen, and bug spray in th medicine cabinet. The layout was great, feels bigger then it is, decorated very nicely. They were helpful at the rental place about booking stuff for us to do. We rented a golf cart for the weekend...highly recommended, and we just plugged it into the house at night to recharge it. The only tricky thing is parking, once your parked you won’t use your car again, but maybe because there was debris due to the storm but it was hard to see what is reserved parking. Other then that, the house was quiet and private and perfect. And i highly recommend going around the corner to Sandy’s Cuban cafe for a cafe con leche every morning. We are not big party people so we didn’t mind being a bit farther away from Duval, but it’s not too far to walk or golf cart to. Highly recommend staying here, and we can’t wait to go back!
Thank you for taking time to review Mango Cottage. We were very lucky the cottage did not receive any damage from Irma. Yes parking was a challenge with all the debris for the hurricane but as you mentioned walking, bikes or scooters are the best option. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the cottage and all the amenities.
Please come visit us again soon.

Great weekend at the Mango Cottage
This was the perfect spot for two couples to vacation. The home was beautiful and very spacious. The two loft beds would've been perfect for 2 more adults or children. Overall, the condo was even nicer than I was expecting! It was close enough to all of the excitement of Duval to walk, but just far enough away to miss out on some of the crowds. We would definitely recommend this cottage!
Thank you for taking time to review Mango Cottage. We are pleased to hear that it surpassed your expectations and we agree the location is perfect. We look forward to your next visit with us.
