Overview

Key West Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Looking for the perfect AFFORDABLE hide-away in Key West? Located in a remodeled Victorian Home - this guest room is just perfect for two!

*** Check out my other studio in the same building at - www.vrbo.com/574086 ***

This guest room is cozy (the size of a small hotel room, 10'X12.5') with a QUEEN size bed but is so much better than a hotel room. We provide high quality egyptian cotton sheets and thick, luxurious towels. Your private bath has a 'rain shower' shower head. And a studio kitchen with apartment sized fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, two burner cook top, blender, and everything you'll need to cook and serve a romantic meal. It is nice to be able to make a sandwich or picnic to take to the beach! There is a wonderful table just out the back door if you would like to eat under the palm trees.

Don't want to cook???

No need really - just a block and a half is Duval Street where hundreds of bars & restaurants await your fun times. The beach is a five minute walk and there you can enjoy the gorgeous warm turquoise water ALL YEAR ROUND. Just relax on the pristine white sand under the tall swaying palms. When you get too hot - simply stroll back to your air conditioned hide-away.

The bed faces an armoire and 32' flat screen TV. The gorgeous Victorian Home which is now divided into individually owned rooms - is an architectural masterpiece... but unlike many bed and breakfasts, walls are thick and your privacy is insured. The neighborhood is a wondereful mix of guest houses, full time local folks, and visitors. While you are walking the streets - stop and chat a spell with anybody who is rocking on their front porch. You might meet some real Key West characters! Our location is so close to Duval (a five minute walk - it will be a great place to gather with friends to head 'downtown.'

OUTSIDE There is a wonderful back deck with lovely shaded eating area, another picnic table under the huge Banyan tree, and lots of lounge chairs to lay in the sun. These are all within the fenced yard of the property. It really is amazing to find this quiet seclusion right off of the excitement of Duval Street!

You will find coupons and local discounts to many attractions, restaurants and bars. What type of coupons? Discounts on drinks, discounts and specials on water sports including sunset sails, discounts on glass bottom boat rides, 50% off a local Scavenger Hunt and free passes to a cabaret drag show. The coupons and vouchers will vary but I put together a packet of fun coupons so that you can come down and enjoy yourself instead of spending part of your vacation looking for discounts!

Also included - A Photo Scavenger hunt put together by a couple friends of mine. We spent the day walking around Key West finding the best spots to take photos of things that make a Key West vacation complete. Includes a map and sample photos, see if you can take pictures at all the locations too!

We want to provide an affordable solution to the high prices of Key West Hotels - and we think this is it! If you are looking for a full service hotel this is not for you. My studio is best for folks that want to see Key West, not stay in their room during their vacation. While it is quite small, it is one of the best values in Key West. We don't pretend to be a full resort, we are a great option for those that are looking for value and a clean well appointed room! WE GUARANTEE YOUR UNIT WILL BE SPARKLING CLEAN UPON YOUR ARRIVAL. So come on down to the Southernmost City and have some fun!

Two bikes are provided for your use at no extra charge. They are right on property with the number 5 (our apartment number) on each bike. You will be able to ride to beaches, parks, botanical gardens and of course, bars, restaurants and sunsets!!

And you will enjoy our 'Favorites' book which has all of the menus of our favorite restaurants, ideas for day trips, the best attractions and some coupons you will love. We live here and if you have ANY questions - PLEASE call and ask...we know ALL of the LOCAL HOTSPOTS.

Your can rent nightly or weekly!!!

Rates range from $89 to $139 per night, holiday and special event rates may be higher.

Your Rental Will Include The Use of Two Bikes For Free!!!

Security Deposit/$200.00 FULLY Refunded when no damage to the Studio or bikes.

One Time Cleaning Fee - $60 on all stays regardless of length of stay.

Fantasy Fest rates for 2015 - $1650 for the entire week.

Key West Gem

  • 5 of 5

This studio is exactly as described online, but what it doesn't tell you is the following:

-How safe your studio/belongings are. It felt like home.

-How receptive Ken is. He answered every text I sent in the matter of minutes.

-The great condition of the bikes. That's why I gave 5 stars. These bikes made moving around KW a breeze.

-Location. Less than a 5 min walk to Duval and 5 min bike ride to any beach.

When you're visiting KW, you're not meant to sit inside your room the entire time. This studio was perfect because it was cozy, comfortable, and it was truly unique. (And the price is extremely reasonable.) Thank you Ken! Next time we come visit, we will certainly stay with you again.

Great place to rest

  • 4 of 5

This little studio was perfect for what we needed. My wife and I made a short visit of two nights to Key West, and this studio was what we needed. The little kitchenette would of been more of use if we were staying longer, but since we ate out most meals we didn't use it. The little shower/bathroom was interesting and was good for what we needed. Ken was very welcoming through email communications and we felt appreciated his suggestions for places to visit.

Quick visit

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect spot for where we wanted to be. We walked to all the spots on Duval. We used the bikes one afternoon, they were great! The only thing I would comment on is the shower is tight. Otherwise, I would absolutely rent this place again.

Our studio at the Galleria was great! Perfect location between where we wanted to be. Our room was clean, comfortable and anything we needed was available ( thank you for the coffee pot!) We absolutely adore this place and WILL be back!

Too Small For Our Tastes

  • 2 of 5

The studio was pretty much as described but I wish I would have paid more attention to the room dimensions instead of focusing on the reviews. We personally found it confining rather than cozy. Room photos are accurate but imagine all that packed into 120 square feet of space. The combination shower/toilet room proved simply impractical for our needs. Also be aware that the window A/C unit is located directly above the the bed's headboard and was quite noisy as it cycled on and off during the night. On the positive side it was located in close proximity to Duval Street and inexpensively priced. However, from a personal standpoint, the low cost did not necessarily translate into good value for us.

Great little studio with bikes included.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Ken's studio for three nights over the Thanksgiving holidays. The studio was very clean and provided everything we needed during our stay. The bikes are a wonderful addition and were used everyday to visit different spots around Key West. The studio will accommodate 2 people not more and it is very affordable in comparison to the neighboring B&B's. Also, I would like to mention that Ken provided amazing information on excursions, restaurants, and things to do. We went on two excursions with Sebago sports- recommend! Visited Fort Zachary State Park on our bikes- this is definitely the most beautiful spot in the whole Key West. I highly recommend Ken and this studio for a couple's getaway. Thank you.
