Historic Seaport 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.

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

Spacious home and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for us and our siblings to stay at during our Key West wedding celebration - we could not have been happier with our choice! You cannot beat the location - it is a stone's throw from Duvall but far enough that it is quiet at night. The bedrooms and house amenities were perfect for our group of 10 - it was nice having two separate living room areas on different floors, and even better to have a large backyard patio and private pool! The check-in and check-out process was a breeze. If you are looking to rent a place for a large group in Key West, this is the house to book!

Great Locations

  • 5 of 5

Haytham and his team were very welcoming, easy to work with and professional. They allowed for a great weekend, in an amazing house, with an even better location (just steps away from Duval St.). The house and it's amenities were ideal for our party of (8). The pool and back area were great for gathering. I would highly recommend and will stay again on my return back to KW.

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!
