Overview

Key West House Rental Photos and Description

Key West Oasis (KWO), private gardens and pool, seperate cottage w/ 2nd BR/Bath

* Please NOTE: I only list my property on legitimate rental sites, like VRBO and Homeaway. I will never list it on Craigslist. If you see my property listed on Craigslist, it was not put there by me.

Key West Oasis is a private two bedroom/two bath rental cottage ideally located in Charming Old Town, Key West, Florida, close to Duval street, great restaurants, bars and the beach. This 1906 'cigar maker's cottage' has been newly renovated into a stylish Key West retreat. The house features an open floor plan with original Dade County pine walls and ceilings. The main house has hard wood flooring throughout and houses the master suite, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and the living and dining area. Inside the house are all the comforts of home, with every room providing its own unique feel. In May of 2012, the home was renovated and completely redecorated. Rooms were painted in soft hues and offer a mix of wicker, shabby chic, as well as new and reclaimed wood furnishings.

Three sets of French doors lead from the living and dining area onto your own private lanai and pool area. Bask in the sun and listen to the tranquil sounds of falling water, which is the backdrop of the heated lagoon style pool. Tropical plants and flowers are abundant and offer complete privacy for guests. The back gardens and pool area were designed to create a calming effect, which pervades the mind, body and spirit.

The detached cottage offers a 2nd bedroom and bath with a private open-air shower – what better way to enjoy your morning shower than amidst flowering bougainvillea trees! The cottage also features 20 ft vaulted ceilings and two sets of French doors which open to the garden and pool area. Guests tell us they love having the detached cottage, as it offers couples traveling together much more privacy.

Key West Oasis is PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5

From the booking to our return home, Kim and her lovely home made this trip to Key West the most enjoyable ever. We usually stay at a resort but traveled with another couple and thought KWO would be perfect with the separate cottage. And it was!! Located on a quiet street, the property offered seclusion and amenities galore. The pool with flowing fountain and Buddha was perfect for fun anytime of day or night OR to relax and enjoy a nap. The lanai was also an excellent place to relax, read a book, or eat breakfast. We rented bikes and everything on the island was just a short ride away. Don't just spend your time on Duval though- try some of the wonderful restaurants and shops located within a few blocks of KWO. These are local favorites that we enjoyed immensely without all of the touristy crowds. We cooked on the grill a couple of times and used the market a block away for food/drink supplies. Kim communicates with you via email before and after your trip to answer any questions you may have. Gary met us upon arrival and also answered questions and was available if we needed anything. If you are planning a trip to Key West, I strongly urge you to stay at Key West Oasis. You will have the time of your life!

A wonderful break from the cold

  • 5 of 5

The ownership pride shown in the upscale amenities and care given to the property made Key West Oaisis by far, the nicest Old Town Key West cottage that I've rented to date. The entire rental process was very easy and the property manager went out of his way to make sure that we had a relaxing vacation. Thank you!

March Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our first stay in Key West. The house was absolutely beautiful. The design aspect was beautiful and tropical, very tastefully done. Perfect for two couples vacationing together. Back yard by the pool was great to just hang out and talk and listen to music. Best bike tour was Lloyds. Best Happy Hour was Cowboy Bills with the best entertainer Uncle Bob. Many places to eat on Duval Street, especially liked Petite Paris and the Smoking Tuna Saloon. This was the most enjoyable vacation and we would highly recommend the house and Key West.

Chris, Jim, Buddy and Nancy loved it

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased. The house is beautiful. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. The covered deck gives respite from the sun, when you need to get out of it, and the patio area around the pool gives you that sun access. The pool with its waterfall is small but wonderful, very relaxing, and the landscaping and privacy it provides is perfect. The two master suites were perfect for two couples traveling together. The cottage shower is outside, with a rustic island feel, and very inviting. We did have a car and occasionally found parking to be an issue, but not badly enough to keep us from going back. Parking is an issue all over town anyway, so you just have to get used to that, or if you're up for it, rent bikes and ride those into town. We were not up for that, but lots of other tourists were, apparently. We had to be very careful while driving, that we didn't run them over!! Salute restaurant on Higgs Beach is a must. Very close to the house, free parking, and only 3 blocks or so from one of the stops for the Old Town Trolley, which we also recommend. Gives you lots of history of the Island. The house had lots of nice linens, and a washer and dryer to make a mid-week wash so we didn't have to over pack. Take or buy your own detergent for laundry. Both bedrooms had thick and thin pillows on the beds, which was nice because I like thick and my husband likes thin, and our companion couple is the same. Individual A/C in the bedrooms made it nice for those of who like it cooler or warmer. I really didn't feel like the house was "family friendly," although the king bed in the cottage was two twins pushed together so could be split for teens. We loved it because it was so adult friendly but probably isn't appropriate for someone with small children. It is an adult house, and that is what we loved about it. Sandy's Cafe, right around the corner, delivers, if you just don't want to go out or cook, and had the best Key Lime pie we ate. Best Conch chowder at Scooners, best raw oysters at Conch Republic, best steaks at Michaels, and best breakfast crepes at Banana cafe. Stay away from the tourist traps when the cruise ships are in town, and enjoy the little out-of-the-way places that only the locals would frequent. Don't go to Half Shell Raw Bar -- the shucker is not good at it and the stone crab claws are too expensive. But definitely consider this house, because there is nothing bad to say about it.

Owner's Response: Hi Chris: I am so glad that you enjoyed the house and Key West, sounds like you dined at some great places! I agree with you, the house is not suitable for families with very young children, as the 2nd bedroom is not attached to the main house and is separated by the pool, however, this setup works great for families with older children or couples traveling together (as in your case), as it offers much more privacy. Thanks for the great review and for being such wonderful guests! If you travels ever lead you back our way, we would love to have you back with us again! Happy Spring! Kim

Oasis stay

We enjoyed our stay at Oasis so much that we have already booked a return stay. The privacy, heated pool(88 DEGREES!!!), and location were the deal makers.

Most Wonderful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Pure heaven in a quiet part of town but close to a great grocery market, Cuban restaurant and within walking or bicycling. If you have a car, parking was never a problem even during this busy season. The backyard was a serene and tranquil spot to start or finish your day. Grounds come complete with gorgeous greenery. Heated pool was heaven. All the comforts of home in the kitchen. Backyard seating was perfect for our family Christmas getaway. We had never spent the holidays away from home before but all of us agreed this was the perfect place to do so. Our twenty something daughters loved the separate cottage space with T.V and outdoor shower. Highly recommend.
