Overview

Key West House Rental Photos and Description

In the center of Old Town w/6 bedrooms, 4 baths, private pool, sleeps up to 14

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.

Please be aware of scams asking for wire transfers or offers from Craigslist. If you have any questions, please call our reservations desk 305-292-2170

The William Skelton house met all of our needs.

  • 5 of 5

This house met all of our needs for our large group. As it was so hot in Key West it was nice to have a private pool that was well maintained to use at any time during our stay. House was very close to all areas of Key West and we walked everywhere. Never moved our car except to go to the marina for a boat rental.Parking was not a problem, we kept two cars on property and parked the rest at the airport for $10 a day. Overall the house was clean as expected and plenty of room for personal space for everyone. Nice to sit on either porch and watch the world walk by. Haytham and staff were very attentive to our needs and requests prior to our stay and during our time there. Great trip, great house.

wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Very clean, very accommodating. The people who rent out the house were also wonderful and very helpful, no issues! The only thing that I may have wanted different was that we came with a large group, and the house almost serves as two separate houses, so it was difficult getting everyone together in the same space. Otherwise, a wonderful stay. I would fully recommend this house to anyone!

Perfect House, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Haytham and the Old Town Manor group were very accommodating for the entire stay. We had a large group of guys, during a very busy time and never had any issues. I would recommend to anyone with a large group! Will definitely use old town manor next time I visit Key West.
