Overview

Key West House Rental Photos and Description

* 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.

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.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
This gorgeous and comfortable home was perfect in every way. We were amazed daily, as the owner has thought of every single amenity for comfort. The kitchen was well stocked way beyond our expectations. Every room in this property are so artistically decorated. The name Oasis is the only name this home could have, as it describes it perfectly. The fabulous heated pool, with the lush tropical landscaping, comfortable loungers and a wonderful covered porch, made it hard for us to want to leave for other activities! The central location of this house makes it easy to walk to many places, but we suggest renting bikes. The bike shops have reasonable weekly rates, and what better way to explore the small streets and neighborhoods, but by bikes? We went to Smather's beach daily, which is about 5-10 min by bike. The beaches are clean and you can rent a chair for $10. We rode down to many restaurants and spoke with locals to find the best happy hours.
There is a Fausto's food market about 2 blocks away, that is well stocked, the bike rental was a block and a half away, this fabulous home is tucked away on a quiet street, but we could be anywhere in key West via bike in 10-15 min.
We can't give this property high enough recommendations! The owner Kim, was so easy to work with, and we can't thank Kim enough! Our week in Key West at the Oasis, was one of our best vacation experiences ever.

Perfect...

  • 5 of 5
Kim,





We had a wonderful time at your home in Key West. It was clean, well stocked and convenient to everything. I think our favorite area was the back porch and pool area, we spent quite a bit of time playing cards with our children on the porch, having morning coffee and reading or relaxing by the pool after a day of activities, sightseeing and taking in the atmosphere of downtown. We plan on visiting again--there was too much to do in such a short time.

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this vacation home is top shelf! We loved the beautiful décor, well appointed kitchen and comfortable bedrooms--we had everything we needed for a GREAT week in Key West. We loved the quiet street, yet within a 5 minute walk of a small grocery store, restaurants and liquor store. The patio and pool are absolutely stunning--on most days of our week we opted to stay in and enjoy drinks poolside vs. heading out to the fun that brought us to Key West in the first place! We enjoyed this home so much that we booked it for next year!

Perfect Setup for Parents & Kids - Separate + Together

Perfect Setup for Parents & Kids - Separate + Together
  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 spent a week at Key West Oasis in April 2014. For us the best aspect of the property was that it includes a front house and a back house, separated by a beautiful shaded pool area. We gave the kids the larger front house which had been setup with two beds in the bedroom. That way they could get up, grab some food, watch TV, etc. all while mom & dad slept in late in the back house.

The house is in great shape, nicely decorated, and well stocked. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. We rented bikes from a nearby shop and were able to easily get everywhere in Key West in no time. There is a grocery store one block away, so its easy to restock whenever you need something. The kitchen has everything you need to cook at home and there is a propane grill by the pool.

The owner and local property manager were very nice and responsive. The property manager met us upon arrival and gave us a great briefing on local attractions/restaurants. We did not have any problems during our stay, but if we did, I'm sure they would have been right on it.

Definitely one of best family vacations we have had. We will be returning to Key West Oasis.
