If you’re craving a Key West beach accommodation with a bone fide front-line view to the sea, you know they’re not easy to come by. But in this pretty vacation rental condominium, By The Beautiful Sea, you can instantly gratify this need for sensational vistas from your own vacation rental terrace right across the street from the beach. Make your first order of the day to breathe in the fresh ocean breezes with a walk along the beach and fulfill the desire to dig those toes into warm white sand . . . for after all your front yard is the Atlantic Ocean. Your ‘back yard’ view is not bad either. The entrance for this property connects with a second level walkway of the building, and offers views of beautiful tropical park-like landscaping. A short stroll from the condominium through the landscaped setting, leads to the large free form swimming pool and Jacuzzi. A major decision each day could be whether to enjoy the sun at the beach or pool side. And when it's time to go dining, shopping, or enjoying the nightlife, Old Town is close by and an easy bike ride away. Ahhhh . . . life in paradise is good.
The interior layout of this property was designed to maximize the opportunity to take in the ocean view from the living room and dining area, as well as the master bedroom. Sliding glass doors off the living room, lead to a private ocean view terrace. The kitchen adjoins the dining room through a pass through door, creating a floor plan that makes it easy for entertaining the family or a group of friends.
The layout of the bedrooms is ideal for a family or three couples. You’ll need to flip a coin for the enviable master suite that has the ocean view, plus a door that leads directly to the sea-side balcony. Furnishings are tropical elegant with a honey-colored wood-and-wicker king size bed and romantic free-standing grandfather clock to remind you that it’s 5 o’clock somewhere. Another nice feature of the master bedroom is a walk-in closet. Next to this closet, the master bath provides a long vanity with two sinks, tiled floor, and bath-tub with in-tub shower.
The other two bedrooms and second bathroom, are on the opposite side of the condominium, down a short hallway, just off the great-room. Immediately off the hall to the right is a bedroom with two twin beds, which can be made up as a king size bed upon request. Nicely decorated with white cottage furnishings, there is also plenty of daylight that streams in through a nice size window. Directly at the end of the hallway is the third bedroom with king size bed. Handsome honey-colored wooden furnishings fill the room in nice contrast with the coral colored walls. A window on one wall invites in the natural light.
The second full bathroom, with standing shower and glass door, is situated off the hallway, easily accessed by both the second and third bedrooms. This bathroom also conveniently houses the washer/dryer, a welcome feature for a beach house, where you can come in and drop your towels and wet bathing suits.
A notable layout feature of this property is that it's an end unit in the condominium building, making it one of the more desirable locations in the complex as you only have neighbors on one side. It is located on the first floor, but elevated second level, since the covered parking is directly below. This design provides a wonderful view of the ocean. The entrance to the unit can be reached by stairs or elevator. There is designated covered parking, and the condominium complex is gated and secured with an electronic key entrance.
