Property description

Dos Casas can be the answer to your fabulous Old Town Key West vacation. Contact us.

Why rent one when you can have two houses? Dos Casas is a unique four bedroom property ideal if you want to have both space and privacy for your extended vacation.

Dos Casas is on the 700 block of Fleming Street, the heart of the most beautiful section of Old Town. This lovely 2-house compound is located just a few blocks from Duval Street, Mallory Square and the Seaport. This very special neighborhood showcases the best of Old Town Key West --filled with Victorian mansions and historic homes, the Key West library, a serene palm garden and even the 'This Old House' project from several years ago.

The houses have been renovated and recently refurbished. Both 'shotgun' houses are tastefully done with tropical colors and an assortment of great local art. The spacious, light filled rooms have 10 foot ceilings with fans and central air conditioning. Four sets of French doors open to the spacious deck and pool.

Each house has its own front porch with comfy seating, and traditional Cuban tile and faux tile finishes -- a perfect place to relax and watch the world go by. Once through the front gate you enter a totally private oasis. All this privacy, yet just blocks from the bars, restaurants and galleries that make Key West famous.

This location is perfect to leave the car at home. Rent bikes or walk just about everywhere. Walkscore, a neighborhood walking site on the web, has rated Dos Casas at 711 Fleming Street a 'Walker's Paradise' with a score of 100 out of 100 for convenience to anything you could want.

Dos Casas is a very special property -- people stop to admire the bougainvillae and the traditional conch style. Numerous local and visiting artists have painted the houses, you'll see them in galleries all over town. While staying here, you'll feel like a local yet enjoy the amenities of a first class vacation rental.
