Great location. Wonderful property. Rent it.

  • 5 of 5

I was in Key West for a work related project and stayed at "casa bella" for six weeks from mid July to Sept 1. It was a perfect stay.

First the location. The house is about a block and half from Duval St., but at the "quiet end" of the street in primarily a residential neighborhood. As a result, you have easy access and a short walk to the Duval St. action, but it is quiet. The beaches, Louis' Backyard, the Rum Bar and La Te Da are just a couple of blocks away. I hardly felt the need to venture beyond a few blocks, but the rest of the Duval bars and restaurants are close and an easy walk. There is a great little breakfast/lunch place a block away on United Street called Frenchie's Cafe, the food is really good and yes, it is run by an actual French guy. Check it out.

Second the property. The house is wonderful. The photos are current, not taken years ago. In fact I don't think that the photos fully reflect how nice it is. The property is a high end renovation/restoration of a conch house and very tastefully decorated. It has everything you need, including the all the pots, pans, dishes, etc needed for cooking. Big TV, strong reliable internet. The skylight in the shower is a fantastic touch. The AC works perfectly and is quiet and effective, something you need during a summer in Key west. Not one complaint.

Third the owner and management company. Easy to work with, responsive and nice. I had a minor problem with the washer, they had a repair man come out right away. But being Key West, the replacement part would take a couple days to get here (hey, this stuff happens), the next morning I found a stack of fresh towels on the porch. The management company brought them by and left them just in case I needed clean towels. Considerate and a nice touch.

I highly recommend this property.

A perfect cottage for experiencing the ambiance of the Old Town Key West.

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Key West for extended stays seven times in the past seven years, staying at 5 different places. The last two years have been at Casa Bella, and this is by far the best place that we have rented. It is conveniently located...within walking distance to almost anywhere of interest or excitement...and nestled in the ambiance of Old Town. It is comfortable with quiet electrical heat and air conditioning. Things work and it is very well maintained! Our experience with the owners has been very positive and they truly want you to enjoy your stay in Key West. My wife and I would readily recommend Casa Blanca for anyone looking for a traditional, pleasant and modernly equipped cottage in Old Town.

Wonderful house, perfect location, perfect for your Key West getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Casa Bella for a month in April 2016 and the house was just perfect. It truly had everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen was fully equipped, all appliances are in brand new condition, and the air conditioning was so quiet you couldn't even tell it was on. The location is close enough to Duval street that you can get there in a 2 minute walk, but far enough from the Mallory Square side of town that it was not overwhelming. Everything in Old Town Key West was no more than a 10 minute bicycle ride away. There are resturants, cafes, a free public beach, grocery store, all within walking distance. The owner Jerry is extremely helpful and responsive and very easy to work with. I highly recommend Casa Bella.

Our winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect old town location...we walked everywhere. This is a very comfortable, excellent condition Key West cottage for two, and could accommodate two more close friends or family members by using the living room sleeper sofa. The cottage has a very well equipped kitchen that's great for extended stays and for preparing at-home dinners. The bathroom installed washer & dryer makes laundry super easy and convenient. We found the cottage to be very quiet at night even though its on a popular street. Additionally, the cottage has two good quality multispeed bikes for those, like me, who enjoy biking around the island. Overall, this is a charming, pleasant and comfortable cottage...we've stayed at five different places in Key West, and after having lived at Casa Bella for four months in '15, this is at the top of our list. It's simply a wonderful Key West home away from home.
