Old Town is the name associated with the Key West Historic District of Key West, Florida. Old Town contains several small neighborhoods. The Meadows is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Old Town and is a quaint, quiet, residential district with most homes dating to the early 1900's. While the narrow, tree-lined streets with remarkable historic homes appoint the Meadows district, the Meadows is only a few blocks away from local restaurants, grocery providers, commercial shops, and fishing and water sport activities. "Casa Bianca 1411" is approximately one mile from Duval Street, or a leisurely 8-10 minute bike ride.

I cannot say enough good things about this property!! My husband and I decided to spend a month in Key West for our wedding & honeymoon and since we preferred to stay somewhere that felt more like home, rather than a hotel, we chose Casa Bianca @ The Meadows (after an exhaustive amount of research!).
In pictures, the house looked perfect. In person, it completely surpassed our already high expectations! It was clean, spacious, lots of storage, lovely artwork throughout, linens & towels were plentiful, the kitchen was very well-stocked (it legitimately had EVERYTHING we could possibly need and more), and the furniture was comfortable. The outdoor space was equally as wonderful... 2nd floor front balcony was a great spot to relax with a beverage & observe the beautiful neighborhood, while the rocking chairs on the front porch gave the house just the right touch of "southern charm." The backyard was my favorite part..... Comfy furniture, a beautiful pool, and lots of well-appointed foliage made us feel like we were in our own private tropical oasis. The one thing this house did not have was a driveway. It turned out to be no problem at all. We didn't have to deal with random tourists parking on our block in this quiet, "away from it all" neighborhood of Key West, and the neighbors were very respectful about parking in front of their own homes. The spot in front of our house was always open.
Most importantly, we have to thank the owner for being so wonderful to work with! Mike was very friendly and informative. He took the time to chat with me whenever I had questions or concerns prior to our arrival and provided very detailed written instructions about the house. During our stay we had one minor problem with an appliance, which was handled quickly & efficiently (happened late on a Sunday evening and had a repair man at our house first thing Monday morning!). Other than that, everything was perfect!
All in all, an amazing stay at an amazing property. If you're fortunate enough to be able to spend a month in Key West, THIS is the house you want to rent!
The most delightful vacation rental home in all of Key West!
Our stay at Petronia St. was the most wonderful vacation home we have ever stayed in. We have traveled extensively and have never found a home more delightful than this home. It has everything you could think of wanting. It's decorated so darling that you have a feeling of Key West from the moment you walk inside! The pool is a bonus of fun year around as it can be heated in the winter. The kitchen appliances are all state of the art, from the Subzero refrigerator to a gourmet stove and double oven, to a wine cooler all by itself! The bedrooms are so cozy and the bathrooms are so many. We especially enjoyed the outdoor shower after playing in the pool! There are TV's everywhere, so no having to share and there is a wonderful stereo system throughout the house and into the back patio. Another unique feature are the French doors at back of the house slide completely out of sight so that your dinner parties can easily flow from the house onto the patio and back, something all our guest commented on. The neighbors are so very charming, going about their daily lives but always friendly and helpful with suggestions for where the locals eat, I loved them! When I return to Key West, if this home is already booked, I would change my plans so that I can stay in this wonderful home, I loved every minute of our stay there. The staff is so professional and helpful. If we ever had a issue ( which we only had on, my fault) They were there so quickly to solve anything and answer all questions. Just talking about this beautiful home makes me home sick to return. You will feel right at home from the moment you get off the plane! The neighborhood is in the historic district and it is the safest on the entire island. I often took walks alone at night and felt perfectly safe! You will fall in love with this home and it will enhance your vacation immensely! I envy you getting to stay in this warm and wonderful home.
