Overview

Bahama Village Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Looking for the perfect AFFORDABLE hide-away in Key West? Located in a remodeled Victorian Home - this guest room is just perfect for two!

*** Check out my other studio in the same building at -VRBO Listing #574086 ***

This guest room is cozy (the size of a small hotel room, 10'X12.5') with a QUEEN size bed but is so much better than a hotel room. We provide high quality egyptian cotton sheets and thick, luxurious towels. Your private bath has a 'rain shower' shower head. And a studio kitchen with apartment sized fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker, two burner cook top, blender, and everything you'll need to cook and serve a romantic meal. It is nice to be able to make a sandwich or picnic to take to the beach! There is a wonderful table just out the back door if you would like to eat under the palm trees.

Don't want to cook???

No need really - just a block and a half is Duval Street where hundreds of bars & restaurants await your fun times. The beach is a five minute walk and there you can enjoy the gorgeous warm turquoise water ALL YEAR ROUND. Just relax on the pristine white sand under the tall swaying palms. When you get too hot - simply stroll back to your air conditioned hide-away.

The bed faces an armoire and 32' flat screen TV. The gorgeous Victorian Home which is now divided into individually owned rooms - is an architectural masterpiece... but unlike many bed and breakfasts, walls are thick and your privacy is insured. The neighborhood is a wondereful mix of guest houses, full time local folks, and visitors. While you are walking the streets - stop and chat a spell with anybody who is rocking on their front porch. You might meet some real Key West characters! Our location is so close to Duval (a five minute walk - it will be a great place to gather with friends to head 'downtown.'

OUTSIDE There is a wonderful back deck with lovely shaded eating area, another picnic table under the huge Banyan tree, and lots of lounge chairs to lay in the sun. These are all within the fenced yard of the property. It really is amazing to find this quiet seclusion right off of the excitement of Duval Street!

You will find coupons and local discounts to many attractions, restaurants and bars. What type of coupons? Discounts on drinks, discounts and specials on water sports including sunset sails, discounts on glass bottom boat rides, 50% off a local Scavenger Hunt and free passes to a cabaret drag show. The coupons and vouchers will vary but I put together a packet of fun coupons so that you can come down and enjoy yourself instead of spending part of your vacation looking for discounts!

Also included - A Photo Scavenger hunt put together by a couple friends of mine. We spent the day walking around Key West finding the best spots to take photos of things that make a Key West vacation complete. Includes a map and sample photos, see if you can take pictures at all the locations too!

We want to provide an affordable solution to the high prices of Key West Hotels - and we think this is it! If you are looking for a full service hotel this is not for you. My studio is best for folks that want to see Key West, not stay in their room during their vacation. While it is quite small, it is one of the best values in Key West. We don't pretend to be a full resort, we are a great option for those that are looking for value and a clean well appointed room! WE GUARANTEE YOUR UNIT WILL BE SPARKLING CLEAN UPON YOUR ARRIVAL. So come on down to the Southernmost City and have some fun!

Two bikes are provided for your use at no extra charge. They are right on property with the number 5 (our apartment number) on each bike. You will be able to ride to beaches, parks, botanical gardens and of course, bars, restaurants and sunsets!!

And you will enjoy our 'Favorites' book which has all of the menus of our favorite restaurants, ideas for day trips, the best attractions and some coupons you will love. We live here and if you have ANY questions - PLEASE call and ask...we know ALL of the LOCAL HOTSPOTS.

Your can rent nightly or weekly!!!

Rates range from $89 to $139 per night, holiday and special event rates may be higher.

Your Rental Will Include The Use of Two Bikes For Free!!!

Security Deposit/$200.00 FULLY Refunded when no damage to the Studio or bikes.

Wonderful... Perfect for two

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for a Key West escape! Very clean and comfortable. The bikes are the perfect way to get around, and made site seeing so much fun! Would love to return and stay in this little piece of heaven.

The only improvement I would suggest is some type of exhaust fan in the kitchenette... The one meal we cooked made everyone in the complex hungry!

Affordable & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a great Thsnksgiving getaway to Key West. This unit was PERFECT for our needs. We paid for four nights what we would have paid for 2 nights at almost all of the hotels we looked at. The Galleria was conveniently located to everything we wanted to enjoy, we put miles upon miles on the free bikes, and parking was easy right in front of the studio. The room was very small, but for two people looking to be out and about and enjoying the town, it was perfect. We look forward to visiting again next year! The owner was very responsive to questions we had prior to arrival and returned our deposit very promptly.

Great Key West Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was perfect for my husband and I. It is perfect for couples and close to everything. We especially enjoyed the bicycles and getting around that way. The studio was clean and extremely quiet.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very quaint place located in a perfect part of the town. I had fun and excitement within easy walking distance and relaxation and enjoyment on the other side. Very clean and well kept place. The security measure and privacy that comes with this location make you feel safe while staying somewhere that is not your home. I will be back again.

very nice but very small

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week in December 2014. Ken is great - very responsive, super helpful. The studio is very nice, in a very nice building. The back deck is a great space, and the fact that bikes are included is fantastic because it truly is the only way to get around the island. The photos and description accurately represent the studio, however, it is very small. Smaller than a hotel room. No table, no chairs - the only furniture is the armoire and the bed. Once we got two suitcases in there we really had no room at all to move around. The shower isn't an enclosed shower either - basically the entire bathroom floor is the shower floor. Ken was so great and the building is in a nice area, I would love to say that we would stay there again, but it really is just too small for our needs. I know that when you go to Key West it isn't about the room, you want to be out and about and enjoying the island, but even for just two people we need more space.
