Overview

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!

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.

Perfect spot for a family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property, wonderful location, just a great time. Very nice central AC - which we didn't think we would have to use in December - but it was 85 degrees and humid - so we really appreciated it.

Just around the corner is a great market (Fausto's) and a killer Cuban Coffee spot - Sandy's Café - you are literally 50 yards away from both of these places - so make sure you stop in.

Place is spotless - and well appointed. We were there for the Patriots - Miami football game (week 17) - and had friends over to watch. Grilled Shrimp, mixed up drinks, hit the hot tub during 1/2 time - and watched the Patriots thrash the Dolphins - what a great time!

Look forward to staying here again.

Mango Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We found the home very comfortable and it was very clean with updated appliances. It was a little more of a walk to downtown than we wanted after being out so late but that didn't deter from the home. I would definitely stay there again on a return trip to Key West. Excellent place.

Loved our stay at the Mango Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My now-husband and I rented the Mango Cottage when we came to Key West for our wedding. We had a fabulous stay. The place was large enough to work as a rendezvous point for guests staying all over the island, but it was also the perfect place to hole up and unwind for a few days after saying our "I dos". The property was clean and well taken care of, and the furnishings were beach without being too kitschy. We loved the hot tub and outdoor shower. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return again soon!

Perfect Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 ladies absolutely adored this little home for a weekend getaway. The décor in this place is beautiful - as a group of 4 women it was a major topic of conversation throughout the weekend. It is a cottage, but the use of space is amazing - closets in the 2 bedrooms downstairs including drawer space, small closets in the bathrooms with everything you could need from a hairdryer to toilet paper, bath towels and beach towels. It is clear from the moment you walk in that this home is cared for and maintained. I do have to say the loft area is tight (it's a loft so it should be) but the stairs are weird and realllllllly steep, even when you haven't had a cocktail, it takes concentration. That being said, it wouldn't be good for small children.

It was in a great location within walking distance to many restaurants (however we did cab it most of the time since it was still so hot). We rented bikes through the concierge - great plan because everything is an easy bike ride away!

We will be back and can't wait to return!
