This is for the Budget minded folks looking to be in the heart of Key West and Duval Street, but at a fraction of the cost of a large cottage. Small and comfortable at a comfortable price.
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 studio is a 220 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 cottage close 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 on your own private deck, which leads along the meandering brick pathways. A Gas BBQ has been provided, so that you can prepare your favorite meats and foods outside, anytime.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 2 very comfortably and is a studio for the budget minded folks that don't want a hotel room and you get all the comforts that you have at home, but in a smaller setting. The living space has a Queen sized bed, and storage space, plus an eating area and a complete mini fully functional kitchen area.
The flooring is a nice Dade county pine floor. A washer and dryer is provided in its own private secured room. You can cool down with a dip in the pool , ( or warm up in the winter )or enjoy the new Air conditioning, within the cottage! And your own private parking spot! AND, everyone has their own PRIVATE parking place, right in front the compound. Yes, everybody has a place to park! Unheard of in Old Town Key West...
IT IS VERY PRIVATE AND QUIET! PUTS YOU IN A PLACE OF PEACEFULNESS!
I have provided free DSL internet & wireless ( Wifi ), phone with FREE long distance use, and cable TV too. And use of a safe at no additional cost. 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 Hemingway hung out at “Sloppy Joe’s”. You also get your own private front parking spot, right in front of the Petronia Palms compound and off the main street.
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!!
This cottage has been tastefully decorated in the Fantasty Fest theme.

About Ted H. Franse
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 cottage in 2008
Why Ted H. Franse chose Key West
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.
What makes this cottage unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
My boyfriend and I just got back from this property. We stayed there for 4 nights before we stayed at another key. The property is absolutely beautiful and is very close to all of the action. We stayed in the smallest cottage; which is all that we needed because we didn’t spend much time at all in the cottage. It was perfect and clean. When we were there, we mostly hung out on the deck and it was beautiful. So was the pool. We also got to check out another one of the cottages; which was a lot bigger and was gorgeous!!! If you are looking for a nice place to stay and don’t need anything too big, stay at the little one. If you plan to spend a little more time in the cottage, pick one of the more spacious ones. Either way, you will be very happy. Everyone does a great job to make the property perfect for you.
In addition, Ted had bikes for us to use and we used them just about every day; which was extremely great. However, if you don’t want to bike, Duval is very close and you won’t have any trouble getting around by foot.
To sum this up, the property is beautiful. The cottages are very well kept and clean. You have the ability to cook out on grills if you would like. Can't beat the price for being so close to everything!
We had a great time and will definitely be back... We might even bring some friends and rent out a couple of his beautiful cottages at the same time!
