|Minimum Stay||27 nights|
Life in Key West is laid-back, easy-going and a bit quirky. “Muriel’s Whimsical Galleria,” a two-bedroom penthouse-style apartment perched above Duval Street, was designed by long-time locals to capture the magic that only Old Town Key West has. Unique artwork lines the walls (including surreal-style clocks and model airplanes,) plush and cozy furnishings set in two separate living areas provide space to relax under beams of natural light through fantastic skylights, and a view of Duval Street tops it off.
Through a non-descript door on Duval Street, this home sits peacefully up above the action of the lively block below. Walk out your front door and you are just steps to your favorite restaurants in any direction: Antonia’s is two doors down, Lobo’s and Onlywood are just up the block, The Café and Mr. Z’s are around the corner. Across the street are a number of art galleries and boutique stores. For a walk-everywhere laid-back lifestyle, this is the ultimate address.
Duval Street is considered the “main drag” of Key West – lined with famous restaurants, eclectic local shops and art galleries, part of the Old Town dream is to perch above Duval Street and watch the passersby. This home is a unique combination of luxurious, spacious interiors and your own private box seats to the action from your second-story porch. Open the French doors lining the front of the condo to let in a beautiful breeze and the energy of Duval, or keep them shut and enjoy the quiet.
THE LIVING AREA & KITCHEN...
Reach the top of the stairs and this apartment opens to an airy, spacious living plan filled with natural light. French doors throughout the home open up to create one large space, or close off the individual rooms to create a more compartmentalized condo. There are two separate living areas in this home. The first living area sits at the front of the condo closest to the porch overlooking Duval Street, with a full wall of windows on one side of the room letting in beautiful natural light all day.

There is no better location than this for fantasy fest in Key West. Our group had an absolutely perfect view of the parade. The location was great for walking to all of the events including the goombay fest. The condo was so much larger than we anticipated and so clean. The name of this place fits the condo so well , because the decor is off beat and fun! No parking, but you don't need a car. We would certainly stay here again.
We thouroughly enjoyed staying in this unique condo. Never did we expect such a spacious and modern place to be located on the best part of Duval Street! I loved the double living room floor plan. So many delicious restaurants were right outside our front door that I did not get to cook as much as I would have liked, in the new kitchen. Lori was so helpful to us, during our stay. We truly had a wonderful vacation here.
Muriel’s is quintessential Old Town Key West. Step out the private entrance and experience the excitement of Duvall Street. There is easy walking or biking access to restaurants, bars, music, shops, galleries, harbor and beach as well as local grocery and pharmacy. Muriel’s is the perfect location to “people watch” from the balcony or spend quiet time in the comfortable and well equipped living areas. Last Key Realty’s concierge service is a great resource for renting bikes, scheduling fishing charters or making dinner reservations. The property manager, Lori, made my trip memorable. She greeted me at the property on my arrival and proved many times to be caring, reliable and professional.
I would recommend this property to anyone who likes to stay in a place that is in a great location. It's location is almost the center of Duval Street and you can be at great restaurants, shops, bars, art galleries, marinas and the ocean in minutes. No car needed! This property is well maintained and it feels like home when you walk in. It looks just the photo's. Lori with Last Key Realty was our property manager and she was very helpful, courteous, and professional. Also if you need a pool we found a great restaurant with pool (Dante's 951 Caroline St.) anyone can use it if you patronize their restaurant. We loved Muriel's Whimsical Galleria and want to stay there again!
