A hidden gem in Old Town!! The house is really unique with its exposed Dade County Pine walls, private porches, and a widow’s walk on the roof with great views of Key West. This property is located just steps from Duval Street in the heart of Old Town (at the corner of Duval and Eaton streets). Some of the island's best restaurants and activities are within a few blocks. Although having a car is not necessary, a single parking space is included with this rental. A fully equipped kitchen and private pool are also included.

We accept credit cards and ONLY require a 3 night minimum stay (except holidays and special events). We require a 50% deposit to confirm the reservation, and full payment is due 30 days prior to arrival. We also have a 60 day cancellation policy, or 90 days for holidays/special events.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay at the William Skelton House over Thanksgiving was a delight. The house was clean & bright and ready for us though we were much earlier than the usually designated time. I’ve already recommended it to friends as a perfect house for a big family & in a perfect location.



I’d like to compliment Haytham who responded so kindly & quickly to all our requests, including coming over to take a family photo. He was so welcoming in all regards and we enjoyed his upbeat & warm personality. In fact, everyone connected with the house - from those I spoke with to reserve the house, to the housekeepers & others at the front desk - were all helpful & friendly.



I thank you on behalf of my family for all your kind attention.



Sincerely,

Maggie

Great property close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Property was close to everything you need. Big and spacious with a great back yard area with a pool. Plenty of AC units to keep the house nice and cool! Would definitely recommend for a larger group or big family!

Great house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, fit 12 people comfortably, but the best part was the location, less than a block from duval street right in the middle of the action

Great house for large groups

  • 4 of 5

This is a very pretty home in a great location, a 30 second walk to the heart of Duval St. The pool in the back is great, a perfect place to spend the afternoon with friends.

I only have two gripes: 1) the house has a very weird layout with no kitchen on the first floor and the only way to reach the second floor is to go outside. 2) The house is very expensive - it ended up being worth what we paid, but it certainly isn't a great value.

We would stay at the house again, especially when traveling with such a large group.

Great location and a lovely house

  • 4 of 5

We went down for some birthdays and enjoyed this house greatly. The house fit everyone comfortably. The back yard makes a great place to gather. The pool was great to cool off.

Just a few things for prospective renters to be aware of:

1. You can't get to the 2nd floor from inside the house. There's a separate stairway.

2. There isn't much of a breeze in the back yard due to surrounding buildings. This won't make a difference in cooler weather, but if it is hot out, it is warm.

3. The first floor bedrooms are all sort of connected to one another. So, privacy takes an effort if people want to walk from the front of the house to the back. If people are sleeping, it's best to go around the house.

4. The "cottage" isn't really a separate building.

We adjusted to these nuances very well and still had a great stay.

Great Location and Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable. We actually used the TV to hook up our laptop to have a presentation to the group. In addition we were less than a block from Duval Street so it was amazingly convenient. No need for a car. And they offered us bikes to use if we needed. I would highly recommend this property and the management that supports it.
