Welcome to Casa Amor, our love nest for ten years has been converted into a vacation rental for you. We are located just two blocks from upper Duval Street…home to a multitude of restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, piano bars and historic residences. You are within easy walking distance of beaches, the Southernmost Point (only 90 miles to Cuba!), the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, the Hemingway House and more.
Our spacious, “Contemporary Caribbean” home and is a recipient of the prestigious Ceramic Star for architectural preservation excellence. It was featured on the House and Garden Tours sponsored by the Old Island Restoration Foundation in 1997 and 2003.
Lush gardens surround a beautiful pool with a waterfall. A large poolside loggia is fabulous for dining and entertaining. High privacy walls insure peace and quiet.
Our three large bedrooms each have a king-size bed. Two of the large bedrooms are on the first level of the home. A sexy spiral staircase leads to the second floor with a master bedroom, bath and walk-in closet. The floors upstairs are a combination of rosewood and travertine marble while the lower floors are a gorgeous polished concrete.
Our home has two and a half baths equipped with elegant modern fixtures as well as an outdoor shower. The master bath has a soaking tub; a perfect way to relax away a portion of your day.
The ceilings soar in the first floor living areas. A reading room overlooks the gardens. This leads into the great room with a bank of wall-to-wall windows which open to the loggia and overlook the pool and gardens.
The gourmet kitchen opens over a breakfast bar to the living and dining area for easy, casual entertaining. The large living room provides lots of seating comfort as well as a 47” flat screen TV. The DVD/CD unit provides surround sound throughout the house.
Casa Amor is fully out-fitted from pots and pans to luxury linens. Off street parking is available. But, feel free to leave your car at home. You can easily walk, bike or take a Pedi-cab anywhere in Old Town Key West. Amble down our by-ways; view homes that range from Victorian mansions to cigar-maker cottages. Find your own treasures, from Nancy’s Secret Garden, to the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center to the libations and gorgeous water view provided on the After-Deck at Louie’s Backyard. Charter a fishing boat, kayak in the mangroves, go Para-sailing…it’s all here for you!

It was clean and very open. Only a short walk to the main part of duval.
1. Location: the property couldn't be in a better location. It's a quiet neighborhood yet minutes away from all the fun places. Ample parking space too!
2. Property: the house was maintained very well. Amazing music systems, plenty of towels and linen, quite spacious and equips pretty much everything a family/group might need for the stay. The pool was nice but could've been maintained better - perhaps a net covering the pool can catch the debris. Again, that's a minor problem - everything else was great.
3. Host: Michel was extremely friendly and helpful, providing guidance whenever needed. We arrived pretty Late but Michel had a solution for us which worked perfect for everyone.
Overall, We were very satisfied and would definitely recommend the property to any family or group with 4+ people!
Our party of eight (seven adults and one child) stayed at Casa Amor in November 2016 as part of a larger trip to the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas and Biscayne National Parks. We actually booked Casa Amor for two separate two-night stays because we were camping at Dry Tortugas the nights in between.
When we arrived, our group was floored by how well-appointed and lovely Casa Amor was. The loggia and pool were enchanting, and the glass doors rolled all the way open to create a wonderful inside-outside living space. The house was spotlessly clean, as were the linens and towels. The bedrooms were spacious and delightfully decorated. All told, it was the perfect space for our group. Even the three provided house keys were perfect, allowing various to come and go as we pleased.
Michel, the owner, is absolutely charming. He gave us tips on where to sit on the ferry to Dry Tortugas, and he made sure that our stay was perfect, which it was. Unfortunately, one of our group forgot his eyeglasses, and Michel contacted us immediately in order to get contact info to mail them to him.
I have already recommended Casa Amor to two business colleagues in the three days I've been back home.
I think that the best testament to Casa Amor's magic is that as we continued our trip in the Upper Keys, all of us spoke longingly of Casa Amor and how much we'd liked it and missed it already.
Michel, thank you for a wonderful experience!
This property is absolutely wonderful!! It is located close to all of the attractions, and in walking distance of most areas of interest! The accommodations could not have been better! Sleeping arrangements were perfect for 3 couples, and the mattresses were awesome! We will absolutely be returning to stay here! Thank you Michele for sharing this lovely place with us and our dear friends!! :)
Shared house with another couple for wedding. Location is good. On South end of town about 2.5 blocks from Duval Street. House was clean open and airy. Good lighting. There's a small pool and patio outside as well as an outdoor shower. Private, nice amenities. The owner Michelle was very accommodating. Could have used small shampoo/conditioner & body lotion in bathroom. Shower head average and kitchen was empty. Had to buy garbage bags and no waste baskets in bathroom or bedroom. Biggest concern was gas company across street. They were filling tanks all day Saturday which was a bit loud when you went outside. Didn't hear noise from inside. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Casa Amor and would go back again.
Other Activities: Parasailing, Wildlife Viewing, Boating
