HGTV FEATURED HOME - BOATERS PARADISE! WATERFRONT KEY WEST HOME

Key West House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Boat in, boat out. Inspired by Balinese design this private waterfront retreat has deep-water access and is the ultimate base for the ocean enthusiast. Choose to escape, relax and meditate by the waterfall or head out for a day of adventure on the high seas. While the property is only 5 miles from Duval St, Key West, it is unlikely that you will venture far from this island getaway. Kayak amongst the mangroves in the backcountry playground or dive the Vandenberg, only 20 min. from dock to deck. If Snorkeling in the warm Gulf Stream waters is on the agenda, America’s only barrier reef is minutes from your back door. After a day on the water prepare your bounty of lobster and snapper in the gourmet kitchen, equipped with Viking range or entertain family and friends in the dockside Tiki hut, while admiring the sunset. As the evening draws to a close watch the moonrise from the verandah of the private guest cottage. In the morning step out of bed onto your boat and do it all over again.

Suitability:
  • wheelchair accessible
  • non smoking only
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Hidden Treasures. It's a really special place. Once you're inside it's like another world. We particularly loved the back deck, a great place to catch the sun, BBQ, and relax in the evening. Being on the water was great for a quick dip and the kayaks were great to explore the mangroves. We saw a manatee and lots of wildlife. The master bed is worth a mention as the best bed we've had on any holiday rental, and the outdoor shower was divine. All in all- highly recommended, and Shawn's customer service meant we had no concerns or doubts with the booking. It's about 20 dollars taxi into Duval Street, we think it's worth staying somewhere peaceful yet still near all the action of Key West. Walking distance is Roostica, Hurricane Hole and Hogfish. All good eateries. Jetskis from Hurricane Hole were super fun. You will love this Hidden Treasure!

A Dream Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This house was just amazing! Photos dont give it any justice at all. The owners were so helpful with everything and felt more like friends than renters! The outside lighting and decorations made us feel like we were off in a bali bungalow. I had the privilege of having my wedding in the back side of the house, and it was better than i could have dreamed. My guests kept asking how i found this place! We cant wait to return and have another amazing getaway. We will be back soon for sure!! My biggest recommendation is to use the outside shower! I promise you'll love it! Thank you for everything!

A Beautiful Gem! I did not want to leave.

  • 5 of 5
This place was as beautiful or better than the the pictures depicted. As soon as we walked in we were in aw. You can really tell the owners put a lot of love and care into this place. The small details really make a difference.

My Family and I were immediately greeted by the owner upon arrival. He showed us around and really made us feel at home. He was available whenever we needed him and was always extremely helpful.

The stay there was amazing. It felt as comfortable as being at home, yet exotic with paradise right outside the door. Everything was fully stocked and clean when we arrived. There were even Kayaks provided for us to use.

I would recommend this place to anyone and I would love to visit again. Thank you to the owners! You were wonderful.

We had a great time here! Plenty of room to relax and soak up the sun or stay cool in the shade. Our kids loved it and so did we! All the decor and added touches made it extra special.

Our Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time staying in this island paradise. That is what you feel like once you enter this very secluded oasis. Shawn, the owner, was very nice and everything was done very professionally.

The house and its outdoor areas are so beautifully decorated. The access by boat was easy and we even caught some in-shore Grouper!

We will definately stay here again!!

Best Get Away!

  • 5 of 5
Shawn checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. Coming from a customer service driven industry, he sure knows how to make us feel welcomed. He knows the town back and forth. So if you need help with things to do and places to eat, he's your man. This house was by far the best I've stayed in. It has everything you need. The only thing we had to go out and get was groceries. I'm was in awe with the layout and all the features this house has. I would go on with a list, but you should just stay here and find out for yourself! My house mates were impressed with it as well. Thanks Shawn and Waterfront Key West Home for making me a star this weekend.
