About the property

Recently-Renovated Historic Old Town Home Within Walking Distance Of Everything.

Mango Cottage

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Yes we had a great time while in Key West as usual. The Mango Cottage was very nice as advertised. The house was fantastic! The central a/c was a great addition to the comfort of a rental property. The beds were very cozy, the baths were very nice and the kitchen was top shelf. I am a finish carpenter and have been for 25 years and noticed that the quality of materials and craftsmanship was excellent throughout the home. Overall I would give this property 5 stars and say it was by far the best property was have stayed at in Key West. We will return!

1st Visit to Key West for 4 Friends

  • 5 of 5

We did a lot of searching for a cottage in Key West & were just delighted with the pictures description of Mango. It had plenty of room for all 4 of us & the decor was outstanding. Great hot tub & huge washer & dryer & beautful appliances. Comfortable beds & very quiet location. I cannot say enough good things about this cottage. We absolutely LOVED staying there. Thanks so much for the great vacation experience!

Charming place that i can’t wait to go back to

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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. Key West Hideaways Staff

Charming house in Key West

  • 4 of 5

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.

Great weekend at the Mango Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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!

Best place we've ever stayed in KW!

  • 5 of 5

The Mango Cottage is perfectly decorated and spotlessly clean. It's in a great Old town location and has everything you will need for your stay. And both beds in each bedroom are THE MOST comfortable I've ever slept in, including my own! Even the sheets and pillows are super luxury and a comfy bed makes all the difference as I get older. The full size washer/dryer was a gray added benefit and so was the hot tub. Check in was super easy and the guys in the office were wonderful and friendly. I've already recommended the place to many friends. We will definitely stay here again on our many visits to KW.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property, exceptionally clean inside. Nice location with bike shop and market close by. Plan to rent bikes to see Key West, walking to Duval was not for those who have any trouble getting around. I would recommend this location for active people.
