About the Property

Classic Key West style with a Contemporary touch. Perfect monthly hideaway.

Island living is made easy in this tropical one bedroom, 2-story Key West cottage. A classic-contemporary Key West style, this attractive rental home is designed with a graceful spiral stair case that connects the 1st and 2nd floors and a romantic gingerbread Juliet-style 2nd floor balcony overlooking a private bricked courtyard on the ground level. So no matter where you are inside the house, you have the option of stepping outside to take in a breath of fresh air.

The location of our Key West Topsail Cottage vacation rental, comes with a piece of very unique historical trivia that is interesting to ponder. Situated towards the southern side of the island, the property has a precious fresh water well that in the 1930’s provided the sole water source for the Old Flagler Hotel (now known as the Casa Marina Resort), and the property was known as the “Casa Marina Wells.” Sometime in the 1970’s, during a round of island redevelopment, the two houses that now sit on this property were actually moved from the Casa Marina to their present location for complete renovation.

As it stands today, this cottage encompasses the front of the property and includes a completely fenced private courtyard. Access to the home is gained through a white picket fence gate set back from the street, which leads into the bricked courtyard on the north side. A lush variety of tropical trees, beautiful shrubbery and flowering plants line the garden beds and adorn flower pots. Tables and chairs are placed in the courtyard for lounging and sun bathing.
Interior Layout:

The main entrance is accessed through sliding glass doors off the courtyard leading into the spacious 1st floor of the house. Step into the center of the open-concept great-room where you immediately see the living room to your right furnished with traditional West Indies Caribbean-style décor, and to your left the U-shaped fully equipped kitchen with oversized breakfast bar with contemporary pendant lights. Monochromatic bone colored walls and floor colored tiles set on the bias enhance a feeling of spaciousness in the great-room. The kitchen is well lit and the main counter space gives you a total view of the living room and the large wall mounted flat screen TV.

The sleeping room and bathroom for this 2-story cottage is set ‘up on top,’ encompassing the entire 2nd floor. Set as a spacious master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, access to this private bedroom retreat is via the spiral staircase set towards the back of the house.

Nicely furnished with a king-size wooden sleigh bed, dresser, and side tables, the bedroom suite carries the traditional West Indies Caribbean theme established downstairs, and sets the tone for relaxation. A soaring cathedral ceiling makes the bedroom seem even larger than it is. Sunshine and moonlight stream in from transom windows mounted to follow the triangular shape of the roof-line. Sliding glass doors lead out to the sitting balcony that looks down to courtyard below.

A large pass-through closet connects the bedroom with the bathroom. On one side of the closet is a laundry center with a washer and dryer, hidden behind a double set of louvered doors. Ample shelving is provided in the rest of the closet space.
The en-suite bathroom has a granite vanity top, tiled floor, and bath tub with an in-tub shower. Transom lights at the ceiling line and a bank of mirrors that runs the width of the wall over the sink ensure plenty of bathroom light.

So . . . if you are adamant about a spacious private one bedroom cottage, a private courtyard for quick escape to the sunshine, a private 2nd floor balcony, and have your heart set on lodging in the center of Old Town Key West, not too far from the beach and within walking distance to most all Old Town features, this could be the perfect spot for you.

NOTE:Rental period cannot exceed 5 months + 21 nights. While there is a sleeper sofa in the living room.

Bedding Summary: Master Suite 2nd Floor: 1 King Size Bed, Living room: Queen Sleeper sofa.
