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.
