Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

28 Night Minimum - Monthly Rentals Only

Just like its name, Petunia is a happy place. Open the picket gate, walk down the short, bricked walk and open the original wood door with a grin from ear to ear. You’ve come home.

This two-story, two-bedroom home with a beautifully updated, second-floor bath offers the kinds of privacy and outdoor space you might not expect to find in a historic Key West home. Yet, there it is. Explore the beautiful outdoor deck that opens through French doors from the spacious, well-appointed kitchen. Why, there’s even that desirable and private outdoor shower with stars and moonlight overhead each evening.

Petunia was recently renovated and updated so you’ll find brand new amenities, appliances and bed and bath linens. Top of the line appliances include a washer and dryer and a delightful retro-yellow refrigerator to add a touch of whimsy.

Petunia is located in a quiet Old Town neighborhood, just steps from The Meadows and the White Street Art District. It’s an easy walk or bike ride to the entertainment, restaurants and shopping along Duval Street, and close enough to the Historic Seaport to stroll for dinner and a drink at sunset.

You’ll love entertaining family and friends in the expansive open kitchen and living areas, spilling onto the deck for fresh air and conversation. Or say farewell to the guests and or curl up with morning coffee and a good book before heading out for the day’s adventures.

Petunia has a sister, Poppy. We mention that because you might be inclined to take both homes for a family retreat. Poppy is a one-bedroom, one-bath home located just in front of Petunia. Both are superbly private and quiet, but why not consider taking them both and sharing a Key West season with the family?

You’ll be just as happy as a Petunia!

A month at Petunia Cottage was a totally relaxing experience. This rental is tucked away on a quiet street close to the historic Key West cemetery and within walking distance to everything. The cottage has everything you need for comfort and the back deck is a perfect place for a drink and a book.

Owner's Response: Hi Christina! The month of December in Key West is my favorite. I can totally imagine relaxing on the back deck with a drink and a book to just totally unwind, and it sounds like you had no problem doing so! Please let us know the next time you are coming to Key West, we'd love to have you back.

I travel to Key West regularly on business. I have stayed in both the Poppy and Petunia cottages and have enjoyed every moment of my time there. Both units are beautiful, newly remodeled and carefully maintained. The area is quiet and convenient. The management staff is very accommodating and I would not hesitate to recommend either Poppy or Petunia to anyone.

ABOUT THE HISTORIC OLD TOWN KEY WEST NEIGHBORHOOD:

The heart, and some would say the soul, of Key West is Old Town. Originally the city’s center, Old Town is today the central location for Key West’s historic district and tourist destinations.

Old Town’s Duval Street, which stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean is the main artery in Key West. Intersected by Truman Avenue, Duval Street provides the backbone from which Key West’s historic homes, seaport and cultural centers extend.

Old Town, particularly those areas North of Truman, is the neighborhood most people think of when they think “Key West.” Its homes are modest bungalows and magnificent mansions that live side-by-side along Fleming, Eaton, Margaret and Southard.

Old Town is generally the area west of White Street. Locals divide Old Town into two parts: South of Truman and North of Truman. Bahama Village, the neighborhood settled by Bahamian immigrants, is officially part of Old Town and it has maintained its character and distinctive Bahamian culture.

Old Town reflects the island’s long history as a seaport and cigar manufacturing town. Wealthy landowners built the magnificent Victorian and Gothic mansions surrounded by the small cottages that have become quintessential Key West. Since the 1970s, renovation and restoration of these homes has been a major part of Key West culture.

Beautifully updated inside and historically significant outside, these homes reflect the partnerships among homeowners, architects, builders and landscape professionals.

Strict construction and architectural guidelines and restoration and renovation consistent with Key West’s history have ensured Key West’s Old Town maintains its exceptional sense of place.

• Best features: Close to restaurants, entertainment and the seaport. Beautiful historic architecture. People watching. Quiet lanes. Duval Street. Tropic Cinema, art galleries, Hemingway Home and the Historic Seaport.

• Getting around: Great for walking. Stick to scooters and small cars. Parking is usually at a premium.

• Street boundaries: Old Town North-of-Truman: White Street to Whitehead Street and south to Truman. Includes the Key West Cemetery and Bahama Village. Old Town South-of-Truman: Eisenhower on the east to Fort Street on the west. Truman to United on the south with several blocks extending to the Atlantic Ocean next to the Casa Marina area.
