Key West House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms: Sleeps 5

Historic Old Town Location - Private Pool - Steps from World Famous Duval Street and the Ernest Hemingway Home!

Debating between the comfort of a chic hotel and the thrill of more authentic accommodations? You will get the best of both worlds with this cozy 2 bedroom home, currently available for up to 5 guests (please see our calendar).

Potter’s Cottage is located in the heart of Old Town – Key West’s colorful historic district. 1 block from world famous Duval Street and 1.5 blocks from the historic home of the legendary writer Ernest Hemingway. This highly desirable location is in the Gallery district of Duval Street. Close enough to enjoy all of the restaurants and nightlife Duval Street has to offer, while still quiet enough for relaxation and rest.

Our super cute home boasts all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel including a concierge and high speed Wi-Fi. At the same time, you can live like a local by taking advantage of the fully equipped kitchen and the privacy our tucked-away location affords smack dab in the middle of Key West’s oldest neighborhood. The first floor French doors open to the private heated pool, covered lanai dining area, sunning chairs and ultra comfy shaded outdoor lounge area.

Potter’s Cottage (a nod to the building’s origins in 1918 as an artisan potter's shop where beautiful bowls and other pottery items were created) comes fully furnished with a King sized bed, a Queen sized bed, luxury bed linens and towels, a modern kitchen, and 2 private bathrooms. It’s the perfect size for 2 couples or up to 5 travelers. Comparable rooms and suites downtown run upwards of $700 per night, and they don’t have half the character of this hidden gem. (Did we mention we have raving reviews on TripAdvisor?)

Potter’s Cottage is available for and incredibly low price of $3272.50 per week for peak season, $ 2695.00 per week for mid season, and $ 2502.50 per week for low season.

When you are ready to venture out, Potter’s Cottage is conveniently located minutes form Key West’s major attractions – including sun kissed beaches, 5 star restaurants, museums, galleries, shopping, and of course the famous Duval Street nightlife. Potter’s Cottage offers limitless opportunities to explore the city by foot. You’ll find our neighbors warm and welcoming. And if you need help organizing your adventures, simply ask. Your vacation rental includes a free concierge service who knows the city like the back of his hand.

This property was exactly as listed. Clean, great location, looked just like the pictures, and great management. The pool and back deck area was the best after a hot day out at the beach or other activities. Had close scooter parking which is a must for getting around.

Just what the Dr ordered!!!

  • 5 of 5
My two sisters and I rented the cottage from April 26th to May 3rd for my 60th birthday. We had such a great relaxing time. It was really hot for us so we spent a lot of time in the pool. We rented an electric car for a couple days to hit all the spots we wanted. Highly recommend BurgerFi at least once while you're there, sooo good. I slept on the futon the whole week and had no issues. It was firm, but I slept fine. There really wasn't a drawback to this property other than the water temperature in the pool was too warm, but we were asked not to touch it, so we didn't. At night it was heavenly. Owner Todd, was pleasant and very easy to work with. I think he may even have ridden by on his bike and put the trash cans away for us!!!! If so, THANKS TODD!! If not, thank you kind stranger! :)

Cozy Key West Abode

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to stay during our destination wedding in Paradise! The property is only a short walk to Duval St., yet it is remotely quiet considering the busy streets of Key West. It was extremely clean and decorated so adorable! The kitchen was fully stocked with all the basic cooking utensils and both bathrooms have all the amenities you need, although the shower up in the master is a bit small the shower downstairs is quite large. The pool, deck, and sitting area are perfect for you to enjoy your Key West morning coffee, sunbathing, or having a few friends over for burgers and cocktails (the gas grill is a nice touch) before you go bar hopping on Duval. There is not a personal parking spot, but we were able to find parking across the street our entire stay. The property manager set everything up with us via email and answered our questions in a timely fashion. Our deposit was returned via US mail within two weeks of vacating. This is a perfect little Key West abode for a couple, a group of friends, or a family. I would absolutely recommend staying here on your next trip to Key West…We will!

Comfortable and Private Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented The Potter's Cottage for Thanksgiving week. We have spent numerous vacations in KW, at hotels on the water near Mallory Square and B&Bs off of Duval, so we are familiar with the area. The neighborhood where the house is located is just a block away from the Hemingway House and KW Lighthouse. While "residential", I wouldn't call it the nicest part of KW, but it was safe and it was quiet at night, so we had no problems.

The patio/pool area was adequate, just what we wanted to relax by the pool and chill. It is a bit of a hike to the downtown area (my husband is in his 70's), but we rented bikes to make it easier to get around. Eaton Bikes will deliver and pick up bikes, which is so convenient. The house was cozy, with everything we needed for the week.

The place is well maintained and clean. The bed was comfortable, the couch in living room, not so much...but we didn't spend too much time inside. For those who have problems with steep stairs, there is a bedroom on the first floor. We slept upstairs in the king bed, but used the shower downstairs as the one upstairs is very, very compact. Downstairs shower is plenty big.

We selected this place because it had a pool. If neighborhood and proximity to downtown activities are more important, you might want to consider other options. For us, it worked for what we were looking for and would consider renting again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We love to get feedback so we can make the house better, and we are glad you enjoyed the Potter’s Cottage.

We would like to provide some additional context for those that are not as familiar with Key West.

Duval St. is the main shopping and entertainment street in Key West. It runs from the Ocean to the Gulf with a higher traffic tourist area at one end and a quieter art district at the other. The full distance is about a mile. The Potter’s cottage is one block off of Duval St. in the art gallery area (about ¾ the distance from the tourist area). As residents of Key West, we find this end of Duval to offer great food, shopping and entertainment. We travel to the other end mostly for sunset at Malory Square

Also, please check out the picture of the sofa in our posting. It is only a couple of years old. However, it is contemporary design and is not really a lounging sofa.

I just completed my first stay at Potter's Cottage! The accommodations were lovely for a relaxing week in Key West. The owners provided all the amenities for a great vacation. The cottage was comfortable, private, quiet and convenient to the beach, shopping and dining.

The pool area was a perfect retreat for private sun time. I would recommend this property to those looking for a private setting, close to all that Key West has to offer. I look forward to my return visit!

Great place stay! We found the Potter's Cottage exceeded all of the needs of the four of us. The cottage is nicely appointed and had everything we needed for a great trip. The pool is nice and was enjoyed by all of us nightly. The welcome basket was a very nice touch! If you are looking for a place in Key West for 2 couples or just four friends, this is your place! Lastly, we found the owner to be very easy to deal with!
