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.

PERFECTION!

My husband and I had a fabulous stay at Key West Oasis! The house is beautiful in every detail and the pool area is divine! A serene retreat after a busy day seeing the sights and shopping. Kim is great to work with.... totally professional and welcoming. Gary greets you upon arrival and is a super nice guy as well a great resource! We chose this property based on the reviews and let me tell you, they are all true. The only thing you won't like about this place is leaving! We are already looking forward to our next visit!

The home was beautiful. All amenities in excellent working order - the ultimate home away from home. The property location was perfect for those wanting to relax, but within a short bike ride/walking distance to Key West's nightlife and marina. The property is in a neighborhood, on a small side road, off the beaten path, which creates a very quiet environment for relaxing in the back pool area.

This was our second time in Key West but our 1st time staying in a VRBO. The pictures of this place and details are so true. What a beautiful and amazing place. Kim, you do such an amazing job with everything. We will definitely be back. Everything exceeded our expectations and then some. So close to Duval but yet far enough away from the craziness within walking distance. Absolutely loved it. Upon our arrival Gary provided us with lots of information and said he was available at anytime if there was anything we would need. With this being our first time booking with VRBO we are now going to check into Kim & Dons place in St. Maarten. Thank you again.

We have rented villas, condos, homes and B&Bs throughout the Caribbean and U.S. and without a doubt this was the best property we have stayed in. The house was absolutely superb, it exceeded our expectations and certainly the photos on line, even as professional as they are, do not do it justice. One has to see your home first hand to truly appreciate everything it offers.

We love KW, but we found that our multiple daily/evening excursions to various activities were always cut shorter than we intended so we could spend more time at your special sanctuary. In the past, we have stayed much closer to Duval, but the hustle and bustle didn’t provide the respite we prefer. Even though it was a few steps farther from Duval the Oasis’ proximity to everything proved to be perfect for us.

We had the good fortune to meet the cleaning staff who were very gracious and thank us (believe it or not) for not making their life too difficult. By the way, they do an excellent job. Gary was very helpful and provided us with some humorous wit and local color. We only hope that you would be willing to allow us to return next year. Certainly your on line vacation guide lines pointed us in the right direction for all types of entertainment.

BEST WEEK OF MY LIFE...

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a relaxing way to celebrate our husband's 50th birthdays and really wanted to get away from it all. This house was IT. Two couples shared the house for the week but we had a visitor or two stop by for drinks before going out and we had the room around the pool to entertain them. It exceeded expectations. It was quiet, relaxing, beautifully decorated, well equipped, and had it all.
We are foodies, and were blown away by how well stocked the kitchen was. We ate at the house all but three nights. There was even a citrus zester! It was pure heaven to be able to grill out and relax by the pool. And the pool garden area, chairs, beach towels, water fall.. well.. it really is paradise in paradise.
Favorite points, comfy beds, spacious bathrooms, great kitchen and grill area, pool, the lanai, all the decorating, and the amazing location.
We loved how close we were to things but still away enough to not hear the crazy.
It will be difficult to ever stay in a hotel again, and we are already planning to return for my 50th in 2019. Save the date!

A WEEK AT THE OASIS

  • 5 of 5
Tired from a crack-of-dawn drive to the airport, a 1 1/2 hour bus ride to another airport, a four hour flight and another 3 1/2 hour car ride, we arrived in the late afternoon at an attractive single home in the middle of a typical Key West neighborhood. We were greeted by Gary the property manager, who cheerfully shared information about the house amenities, must-see places to visit and the best places to eat. He assured us that he was available for any further questions about the house or the Key West environs. He also offered a brief tour of the house, porch, terrace, heated pool and cottage on the property. After he left, we and our two friends walked around the interior of the house, admiring the charm and class of the decor as well as the impeccable cleanliness of each and every room. The exterior was equally attractive with beautiful, lush plantings, a generous porch with a sitting and an eating area, a lovely heated pool including plenty of seating nearby for sunning after a swim, and an adorable cottage complete with a full bath and outdoor shower. The online photos do not do justice to the property! After spending some time pinching ourselves, we quickly unpacked and made ourselves at home. The owners thought of everything when furnishing the rental for guests! From the amazingly comfy beds to the plentiful storage areas, down to the hooks in the bathrooms and the books bursting with suggestions for eateries and activities, every need was anticipated and and provided for by the owners. The rental location was within walking distance of Duval Street with all its' attractions, as well as plenty of restaurants, bakeries and a grocery store. Though we enjoyed the wonderful activities Key West had to offer, each day we couldn't wait to return to our personal oasis to swim, sun, chat, sip cocktails, eat snacks, laugh and enjoy each others company. Our only complaint was the fact that we had to leave after a week flew by. We are already making plans to return as soon as possible.
