Overview

Key West House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR 2 BA -- sleeps 6 maximum

Key West private home on the water overlooking the Salt Ponds Protected Bird Sanctuary - family owned for three generations. MONTHLY RENTAL ONLY. Enjoy the peace and serenity and privacy of our home while only ten minutes away from the fun of Duval St. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets with beautiful unencumbered views over the mangroves. Dock your boat at the sea wall and be in open sea in three minutes. Relax around the large free form pool or jump on the bikes and explore the island. Slip the kayaks into the water and drift through the mangrove tunnels right across the canal. Fish directly off the stone deck out back and catch anything from snapper to grouper. Throw them right on the grill and have dinner by the water. A family owned home still used by the owners, Dragonfly will give you the feeling of visiting an old friend instead of an anonymous rental unit. This l950's retro-chic house is furnished with an eclectic combination of custom furniture, family antiques and wicker in an exclusive area of Key West not usually on the rental market. If you are looking for that condo feel, this is not the place to go, but if you want a home away from home that is totally relaxing Dragonfly is for you.

Perfect place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that at first I was a little concerned about the location for this property as it looks on the map to be a long way away from Duval and some of the other hotspots of Key West, but I found after arriving that this really enhanced my stay. Being away from all of the night-time craziness allowed me and my family to have a much more enjoyable and relaxing trip.

A few gems from the trip that we haven't been able to get at other places in Key West:

1) Taking out the sea kayaks to explore the mangrove swamp behind the house;

2) Set up the ping pong table and doing my best Forrest Gump impersonation;

3) Petting the manatees that came right up to the seawall behind the house (I'm sure someone will scold me for doing this, but c'est la vie);

4) Cooking up some fresh lobsters and grouper on the grill;

5) Jumping in the canal behind the house after a day at Smather's Beach.

This is a great property that really makes you feel at home. I can't wait to go back again!

Hidden Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the photos on Homeaway don't do this home any justice. The home is absolutely beautiful and is located in "new town" which is away from all the noise and touristy stuff in "old town" near Duval St. My wife an I go to Key West 2 - 3 times per year and only stay at this property. The home is really set up for enjoying being outside. The house site on the only canal in Key West and it was fun to sit in the pool and watch boats, kayakers and paddleboarders roll by. One boat even threw us a couple of fresh snapper they just caught! The mangrove forest (an attraction that people pay to kayak through) is right on the other side of the canal and there are two kayaks at the house...you can just go at your liesure. There is also a ping-pong table, two beach cruiser bikes, a grill, lounge chairs and a huge covered area outside in case of rain or if you just want to get out of the sun for a bit! Being here gives you a true sense of what's like to actually live in the Key West paradise.

The best way to melt into the Keys

  • 5 of 5

I love KW and everything about it. I've stayed all over Old Town and walked the island from place to place. A friend sent me the link to this site when I needed a longer stay option. I was very surprised how much more space you have in New Town. This home is on a large canal. What makes it so great, is there aren't homes across the water. Just trees and sky. There is also a pool. Its shallow and ideal for sitting and half standing. My wife and I like to grill out, listen to music, and lounge in the pool day and night. The best part is, there's nobody to see what you are or aren't wearing. This was a hit with my wife. When we did manage to get dressed and leave, Duvall is just a 10 5 min taxi ride away. The airport is 3 mins. I'll be back!

Fantastic stay. Totally serene.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully serene and beautiful spot. I rarely left the back deck. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets almost everyday I was there. Quiet and peaceful with beautiful unencumbered views over the mangrove. I'd spend my mornings on the kayak paddling into the tunnels across from the Sea wall or reading by the pool under the palm tree it's built around. The home is very 1950s style and nothing fancy inside- but everything you need. It has a very homey feel - not the plastic or generic feel of a condo or hotel room. I like that, but if you are looking for that condo feel or something real fancy - this is not the place to go. But if you want a home away from home that's totally relaxing I'd highly recommend it.
