After parking you car in your dedicated spot, it's time to start your journey down a small path,behind a locked gate, to your door to happiness.

About Cliff

I came to Key West 6yrs ago to love what I do and love where I live. I restore these old homes and protect the history that they contain. Its not the worst thing to see palm trees out your window when you wake up in the morning.

Cliff purchased this house in 2010

Quiet home, fantastic location, very clean and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

Great location, walk away from the restaurants and beach. Very quiet home on a residential street, as a added bonus has a parking right outside. I'm really happy with the choice we made. We got our rest in a quiet place away from the crowd and spend our days diving, snorkeling and relaxing while reading Hemingway's "Movable Feast" - a special copy from his home across the street.

Highly recommended for people who don't like crowded hotels.

Quiet and comfortable but close enough to all the fun in Key West

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with the space in the 2 bedrooms with attached bathrooms, as well as generous closet space. We never pulled out the sleeper sofa, which would have occupied the entire living area. Kitchen and dinette small but useable. The back patio which is included is private and shaded, with a functional gas grill. If you are hoping to get some sun, you won't find it at this property, but the beach is a ten minute walk with chairs and beach towels which were provided. Washer/dryer a nice perk here. The two bedroom window AC units worked fine when outdoor temps reached 80 in November, but I could imagine the kitchen getting hot if you did much cooking, or in mid-summer. We walked comfortably to the Southernmost Point, Mallory Square, and Fort Zachary Taylor. We even walked to the remote car rental north of the airport, but would recommend the Key West Transit bus ($2!) to and from the airport. The green line stop is two short blocks away by the Blue Macaw. Very comfortable for 4 guests, especially 2 couples. We were able to text the owner with a question and received a prompt reply. Just a note, the charming front porch with rockers belongs to the front unit!

A nice place to stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable unit and a good value. As a couple traveling with a single person, we especially liked the two bedrooms with separate baths. Cliff was quick to respond to a minor problem.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Julia's Retreat. It was the perfect location for us as it was on the "quieter" end of Duval St. The back patio area was very quiet and private. Cliff was very nice and accommodating when we asked if we could check-in and hour early. We will definitely return.

This great little spot is located on a quiet,one way street, just steps from the energy of Duval St. and a short walk to sun and surf of South Beach. The Key West Light House,Hemmingways House,Southern Most Point,Butterfly Conservatory,Gallery .District,Trolley stop and countless tasty restaurants are within 2 blocks of this great old home. A good nights sleep for recharging is a must and this is the spot for it,very quiet but right in the middle of the fun and culture
