PETRONIA PALMS, JUST OFF DUVAL ST. SAFE! AND HAS A LARGE POOL!

Key West House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

First I want to say. With the many Scammers out there? I do not advertise on Craigslist. Welcome to Petronia Palms! and the 'Royal Palm Cottage'! The sooner you book, the better the Deal! The safest location in Key West!

NOTE:

This is a monthly rental! Just wanted to give a heads up, that I don't use the calendar on this booking site, as I have multiple VRBO vacation rentals that may be available to you, too.

Was on the HGTV ( Home and Garden) show, 'Bang for your Buck'.Filmed April 2010.

Petronia Palms Is located just one block from the famous “Duval Street”! Which dumps out right at the ' World Famous 801 Bourbon Bar'. This lovely stand alone 800 sq. ft. cottage is located on Petronia Street Rear and just over 150 feet off the road by itself in it’s own enchanting little peaceful compound of 4 beautiful/cute cottages. The compound has a security coded entrance too. You are within walking distance to most of what Key West has to offer. Although close to Duval, the cottage is a quiet escape, since it is set back in its own little world of peace. You can kick back, just outside your private French doors from the large living room next to the 12 ft. x 24 ft. shared pool. Or just relax on the decking surrounding the pool under the sun in day and the stars at night or under the large covered porch, which leads along the meandering brick pathways. A large Gas BBQ has been provided, so that you can prepare your favorite meats and foods. Even Hammocks provided for each cottage,too. We can even provide any special requests, such as running an errand for Wine, flowers, etc., some may require a small fee to do so.

The single story cottage will sleep 4 very comfortably and has a large living room, large private/separate bedroom with a King sized bed, a queen sofa sleeper with memory form mattress in the living area, nice sized kitchen,with Slate flooring , diningroom and full bath with Slate flooring ,the rest of the cottage is in brand new 18 inch tile, theres a washer and dryer in its own private secured room. You can cool down , ( or warm up in the winter ) with a dip in the pool or enjoy the new Central Air conditioning, within the cottage!

IT IS VERY PRIVATE AND QUIET! PUTS YOU IN A PLACE OF PEACEFULLNESS!

I have provided free DSL internet & wireless (Wifi), phone with FREE long distance use, and cable TV an alarm system too. And use of a safe at no additional costs. Its located in the heart of old town, this cottage is the perfect spot to enjoy the sites and sounds of historic Key West. Enjoy the excitement of the tropical evening, night life, just a minute’s walk over to Duval Street. Not far from where Hemmingway hung out at “Sloppy Joe’s”. AND, everyone has their own PRIVATE parking place, right infront the compound. Yes, everybody has a place to park! Unheard of in Old Town Key West...

I have decorated the Petronia Palms cottages with carefully chosen colors, furnishings and fabrics, to remind you that you truly are in a tropical oasis, but with the Key West flare! The traditional Caribbean blues, yellows, greens and cottage style furnishings, make you feel as though you are in paradise, as you grab your favorite book and mix your favorite frozen beverage, in the fully equipped kitchen. Centrally located, you can bike or walk to the beaches or visit the special boutiques and restaurants up and down Duval Street!

This is it; paradise is waiting for you at Petronia Palms!!

Also I have a less priced condo in the Meadows at VRBO # 171894 or #219051 and #249689 at Petronia Palms too. And a Private home right next to Petronia Palms # 442437. And a Studio in Petronia Palms for the folks on a budget at #265376. and if you are looking for Kauai Hawaii? Look at VRBO # 152385.

Thanks!

This is a picture taken of my girlfriend and I on a long 350 mile ride up and back down the entire Keys for the day. What an awesome ride. Fortunately she loves the tropics as much as I do. So traveling to Key West or Hawaii, where I have many different vacation rentals, which I own, doesn't require me to twist her arm to go.

Ted H. Franse purchased this house in 2008

Back in July of 2008 my girlfriend and I went back to Key West, because the previous stay was all work, converting one of my condos in the Meadows in Key West. While we were there, the last day I was told about a compound one block off Duval Street on Petronia Street, that was not directly listed for sale, but was just awesome. So I asked my girlfriend to go, and said no way, because if I liked it, I would start crunching numbers to figure out how to buy it. I went alone and met with now the previous owner. Of course, I then went back and got my girlfriend to come back to check this piece of paradise out. Most folks that have lived in Key West, don't even have a clue that this compound is back there, off its own little un-paved street. The compound is so quiet and peaceful and totally tropical with all the Key West colors too. The Big pool was in great shape as the entire compound. So, for those next few months, lots of Negotiations and finally on October 1st 2008, I became the new owner.I gave it the new name Petronia Palms and everything has been decorated to fit in with the Key West flare! Each cottage has its own personality and have been decorated to the max. I even have one with tons of Hemingway artifacts too. My handyman in Key West has become a welcomed sight to all that have stayed there. He has without my asking, took folks fishing, boating, shrimping, trips to the store etc. He even brings the folks fresh fish after his big catches. He has become the tour guide.

I have already been there 6 times since October 2008, doing lots of 20 hours days, providing lots of improvements to the entire compound. My next visit is set for May 1st 2009, to do more work. The compound is so peaceful. Who would think so, for being only a block or so from the Famous Duval Street. It is unknown to most the locals. I have heard comments, like, wow, I never knew this was back here. What a plus, to be off a one-way street and a private street off of Petronia Street. Sitting in the compound having a BBQ, swimming, sitting and reading a book, taking one of the 8 bikes provided for a ride or just sitting out on one of the many private decks for each cottage is a nice plus too. The entire compound is real lush with tropical plants and little cute artifacts around the entire compound. Too Cute! Even though each cottage is its own home, over time you get to know the others that are staying.Being right down the street to Duval Street, it is easy to get anywhere in mid-town and walk back home for a night-cap. It is its own little world away from the world.Pretty cool.

Well it has taken me a while to write a review only because doing so reminds me of how amazing this trip was and it makes me sad that I'm no longer there! The condo was absolutely perfect! Ted was great with explaining everything and getting the payment situated. The condo was very clean and secluded, our own personal paradise. Every possible thing that you would need was in that condo!!! The pool and personal hammocks and bbq made everything just a little more perfect! Christina was very helpful (she actually helped me find my idol Nick Carter who was in town!) The location was perfect. It was peaceful but also walking distance to all the bar and hot spots on Duval Street! The bikes that were available to use was an extra bonus. We rode them all over the island. I would give anything to stay in Petronia Palms forever! Thanks to Ted my goal one day is to live in Key West he made a memorable vacation something I would love to experience every day and I hope to one day soon return! Thanks again :)

I am just completing my 2-week stay here in the Petronia Palms compound and I must say that having visited Key West several times, this was one of the most enjoyable and peaceful. Christina is a wonderful resource and a new Key West friend. I particularly enjoyed the pool where I did my daily water exercise regimen, then coming inside for a sandwich before heading out for a walk over to the beach. I am already booked for a 30-day stay in late Dec 2013 to the end of January 2014 ... I may try to return sooner! Thanks to all!

My husband and I stayed for 15 days.....we loved it. The location is perfect....every ammenity we needed was in our cottage...I'm a clean freak and our place was spotless. Christina is a gem....she was available for any questions we had. The laundry facilities is definitely a plus as well as the gas grill. The pool was clean and perfect for a cooling off swim. Another plus...off street parking.

We booked in for next year and are bringing our family for 20 days...that says it all!

Sent my son and his girlfriend here to spend a week for their Christmas gift. Both absolutely LOVED the location and convenience of this cottage. Also said it was just perfect for the two of them and they really appreciated having bikes at their disposal. Their only complaint was difficulty locating the washing machine. (I think they probably just weren't really looking that hard!) Very satisfied and would definitely rent it again!
Owner's Response: I'm glad they had a great time, as almost everyone does. But, not to find their own private Washer and Dryer? Which is right at their cottage location? That is a first. I'm not sure what happened, but upon check in, everything is pointed out. Just opening the door that says Washer and Dryer would have done the job. We always instruct check in's, if anything is needed? Call the property manager. Glad they had a nice time and it appears they still did with clean clothes too.

We have stayed at Petronia Palms for three years in a row now, and that attests to how much we enjoy this property, the staff, and the location. It is peaceful and spacious enough for our family of four. We can park our car and ride bikes everywhere (provided by the owner) the whole time we're in town. Christina is available at all times via text or phone to respond to requests. We have stayed in the Date Palm, Queen Palm, and Royal Palm (different years), and have enjoyed each. The pictures of the property are exact representations of where you'll be staying. We liked it so much the first two years that we rented the whole complex this year and brought along our friends and family. Some of the things we like about the Royal Palm cottage: ceiling fans in every room (even the bathroom and kitchen) to facilitate air flow on cooler days when the a/c is not needed, comfortable king-sized bed in the bedroom, *very* well-equipped kitchen (I couldn't believe I even found a pizza pan and round pizza cutter), pull-out sofa with a mattress that was in good shape, large closet in the bedroom. The one negative review of this property lists nit-picky things that need attention--I think the comment is ridiculous. Each year we've visited we've found new things that Ted has upgraded; he, Christina and the staff are making constant improvements. This is not a chain hotel--it's a privately-owned, well-kept set of cottages. If you want a cookie-cutter hotel room, stay at the Marriott. If you want to actually feel like you're in Key West, Petronia Palms can't be beat.

Owner's Response: I greatly appreciate your nice comments. It's nice when we are appreciated. As some must nit-pick about some stupid stuff, which is normally out of our control. Thanks again. And I / We appreciate your continued returns. Thanks from the Owner Ted Franse and the Crew.
