Overview

Key West House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Would you enjoy truly modern luxury within walking distance to Key West's best restaurants, clubs, and art galleries? If so, this is the vacation house for you! The Property consists of two separate houses. The Front House is available only.

Basking in the sun on the elevated private sundeck

Cooking in the ultramodern kitchen with Bosch and Sub-Zero appliances

Pampering in the elegant Bizazza Bathroom

Savoring dinner on the cobblestone patio

Enjoy Florida-living at its best with large window-walls that frame views of the zen-style garden, the deep water pool, and the heated spa. This beautiful garden features palm trees, bamboos and tropical foliage framing the dry creek and dry pond. In addition, off the Main Entrance is a petite courtyard in which sunlight filters through a monastery bamboo and Japanese privet onto the private granite patio.

The two-story home featuring ultramodern architecture designed by Searle Lamaster Howe of Chicago is unique to Key West. Located in Old Town, the structure is constructed of board-formed concrete and houses two bedrooms, two baths, a spacious living/dining room, and a private second floor sundeck with its own shower.

The interior has an open plan with soaring ceilings, elegant lighting and European appliances. It is furnished with European and Carribean furniture; the bedrooms have European Beech walls, and the bathrooms offer Italian marble and Bisazza tile walls and the latest European fixtures.

In back is a large rock-laden garden and patio with a generously sized pool and attached heated spa.

Why Don and Kim Wilson chose Key West

Privacy and Convenience! With the large garden we feel like we are in our own oasis. Yet, everything that we need is a short walk away. You do not a car!

What makes this house unique

Luxurious and modern living -- no expense has been spared.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I spent a holiday week in this fine vacation home and enjoyed it very much. The house is modern, with clean crisp lines. It is well located in the middle of Old Town, walking distance to Ket West's restaurants, yet is very quiet and private.

Great New Years Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (two adults, two children in their 20s) had a wonderful New Years week at this house. We especially enjoyed being able to hang out in the pool/spa and forget that it was -10 degrees in Chicago. Even with the nightlife of Duvall just around the corner (we are more into dinner/movies than bars), we still found it to be a quiet respite. The beds are very comfortable, the bathrooms are luxurious, and the mid-week cleaning service was the perfect "tidying." We especially liked trying out the green egg in the back yard. Blackened fish tacos and champagne was our New Years Eve feast, then we walked two blocks to see the red stiletto drop at midnight. We walked to all of our dinners and sightseeing from here. Only used our car once to go on a sea kayaking trip further north on another key. Great location and off-the-street parking for our car. Very kind and attentive owners.

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. The house has everything we could have wanted and the garden and pool was a quiet oasis. The owners are very attentive and flexible. Due to family circumstance, I needed to modify my reservation twice. They were so understanding and accomodated my change, even though the first one was less than 30 days. Don and Kim,Thank you so much!!!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to key west. We found this home on the site and the pictures do NOT do it justice! It's wonderful. Upgrades are perfect, back yard was secluded and private, and you were only a block away from all the action. Couldn't have picked a better place. Owners were so friendly and helpful. Available quickly if anything was needed. We would love to come back.

Excellent accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at this beautiful home. We couldn't have asked for more. Perfect for 2 couples. Immaculately clean. Fabulous master shower. Modern appliances. Great location. We spent more time than expected in the lovely backyard garden with pool and spa. We highly recommend this rental.

Birthday Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband was planning a surprise birthday trip for me with my best friend & her husband when he came along this listing. After speaking and corresponding back and forth with Kim, we could not be happier. As all the other reviews stated the house was amazing in so many ways. It was perfect for us 2 couples, close to Duval and just the feeling of home while being away on vacation. Rick, who was on site to let us in & show us what we needed to know was a wonderful too. We have booked some places before and have always been worried that pictures make something look better or communicating with the owners would be difficult, but definitely NOT with this booking. Kim, Don & Rick made it great & we were able to enjoy our vacation the minute we walked in the door! Thanks and we can't wait to stay here again!
