Ever wish you could spend a month or two in one of those perfect little conch houses set along the streets of Old Town, Key West? Take a look inside this classic little conch house with a Caribbean flair, and you’ll find exactly what you’ve been looking for. Set in the ideal Key West location - on Southard Street just two short blocks from Duval Street in one direction and the Historic Seaport in the other – this island jewel is the realization of the Key West dream: sit on the front porch, swim in your private pool, cook and eat outside, and then stroll down to Duval for an evening in the beloved Conch Republic.
The Porch & Pool …
Southard Street is a famous, one-way Old Town street leading directly toward the downtown area of Duval Street. This street is known for its well-used bike path and its quintessential Key West conch houses. “Caribbean Fling” is one of those homes: a little gem perched along the street with a perfect little front porch to sit and watch the passersby and take in the island air. Follow the porch around the backyard to reach your own private oasis – a lagoon-style dipping pool of the perfect size for this lovely little home. Surrounded by outdoor seating and a tropical garden complete with an outdoor shower, you will have to find some very good reasons to leave your little slice of paradise on Southard Street.
The Living Area...
Through the lovely blue hurricane shutters and perfect front porch is a gorgeous island cottage, straight out of the pages of coastal living. Luscious island colors and fabrics, seashells and flowers decorate the open living area, complete with a flat screen TV with DVD player and an iPod dock. There is plenty of seating in this living area, including two separate couches and a small dining nook in the corner. One of the couches is a luxurious leather sofa that folds out to a Queen-sized sleeper sofa.
The Kitchen & Island Dining Area…
This home has one of the most unique dining areas you will find in Key West: on the walkway between the living and the kitchen is an all open-air dining area with space for 4 under a bamboo-style roof. One wall of the dining area has linen curtains that pull across to provide additional privacy of shelter from an afternoon shower. Follow the dining area to the kitchen, a tiny but very efficient indoor/outdoor space with a fridge, microwave, stove, oven, toaster oven, coffee makers, and all of the utensils and tools you’ll need to whip up a meal. It is island living at its best!
The master bedroom opens up off the living room and has a Queen-sized bed, flat screen TV, large dresser, and ceiling fan. The master bathroom is en-suite with a tile shower. The cozy second bedroom opens up off the outdoor dining area, with twin bunk beds. This cabin-style “bunk room” has an en-suite half bathroom. Both bedrooms have in-room air conditioning units, so each bedroom can be set at the perfect temperature.
Washer & Dryer, In-Room Programmable LD A/C Units, Ceiling Fans, Gated & Lushly Landscaped Outdoor Area with a Lagoon-Style Private Pool, Charcoal Grill, Flat Screen Cable TVs, Microwave, Toaster Oven, Gourmet Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Interim housekeeping provided upon request. Wireless high-speed Internet access is included. This property will accommodate up to 4-6 adults.

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit to Old Town Key West and especially our stay at "Caribbean Fling". Our lovely island home was everything the listing pictures and description said it was and more! We were pleasantly surprised by the "homey" atmosphere which included the many pictures, books, and information about the house and community itself. The many other personal items made it a step above your average rental vacation home. It is centrally located, making all activities, attractions. and restaurants easily within walking distance. We truly enjoyed the quiet privacy of relaxing by the pool and looked forward to many enjoyable evening strolls around the pristine neighborhood. Caryne, the property manager, was both extremely helpful and accessible. We hope to go back to this Caribbean Paradise again soon and will definitely stay at 707 Southard Street.
We have been to Key West many tiimes, but staying in this delightful conch cottage, so convenient to everything, made this visit a perfect experience. The house was immaculate, comfortable, very private, and had all the amenities needed to make you feel at home. The tropical setting for meals alfresco and a dip in the heated plunge pool added to the quiet island atmosphere. Even though it is a short walk to Duval and Old Towne, we rented bicycles that were delivered to the front door and safely stored them behind a locked privacy gate. Key West is very bicycle friendly. Within a few blocks on Southard is "5 Brothers" corner market, where locals get their morning cuban coffee, pastry, and sandwiches to-go. Two blocks away is "Mangia Mangia" pasta cafe, a great place for dinner. Or if you prefer, the kitchen had everything needed to prepare breakfast, lunch, or a gourmet meal. The shaded front porch was perfect for relaxing and watching people stroll by or gazing at a full moon. The agent who met us with the keys was very helpful and there was furnished information about what to see and do and maps to help you get around. Attention to details and maintainence were clearly evident. We would highly recommend this property for a romantic getaway, a family vacation, or a group of friends. Can't wait to stay here again.
Everything was just as advertised online and even better in person. A tropical paradise with lush plant life and it’s just the right size. It has first-rate interior decoration, nice beds, great wireless, big TV’s with DVD players and comfortable living room furniture. Everything is readily available and the kitchen has all the amenities of home. The washer and dryer facilities were a welcomed surprise. We loved the open dining area and had breakfast there every morning. The heated pool was wonderful and well cared for. The outdoor shower was a new and pleasant experience. The neighborhood is quiet and quite charming. Our favorite thing was relaxing on the front porch and watching the bicycles and pedestrians go by. The cottage was very clean and tidy, well maintained and secure. I was impressed that it had plenty of paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, laundry detergent and even beach towels. That was a nice touch. It’s just a couple of blocks to Duval Street and all the shops, great restaurants, nightlife, music and more. We enjoyed eating at the Lazy Gecko and listening to music at Schooner Wharf Bar and many others. It was a short stroll to The Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, Mallory Square and other attractions worth seeing. Loved this cottage! Was clean and well maintained, had everything we could have asked for. We would highly recommend the Caribbean Fling @ Southard Conch Cottage to family and friends and anyone wanting to vacation in Key West.
Not a large house, but beautifully appointed with every amenity and close to all the activities Key West has to offer.
LOVED THIS WONDERFUL COTTAGE FOR OUR TIME IN KEY WEST. THE HEATED, PRIVATE SPLASH POOL WAS GREAT, THE HOUSE WAS NICELY DECORATED, COMFORTABLE, AND HAD EVERYTHING NEEDED TO FEEL RIGHT AT HOME. LOCATION WAS QUIET AND WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO MANY OF THE ATTRACTIONS.
This Island Cottage was absolutely a "home away from home". From the great front porch to sit on and watch the people go by to the wonderful private pool with palm trees blowing and the fun outside "kitchen" and deck and talk about convenient, you are just 10 minutes away from "Duval Street." This was our first trip to Key West and definitely not our last. Staying in this great tropical island home was so relaxing and peaceful and we are looking forward to staying here again really soon. We totally recommend this "Island Getaway"!!
