Charming Key West Florida home located at the 5-mile marker. The Canal has ocean-access for fishing, kayaking, and snorkeling. Enjoy poolside living area and beautiful lanai with a cooking area. The swimming pool is also heated. There are two living room areas where the kitchen is situated between those spaces. So family members can spread out. WIFI available.
A must see and do is Mallory Square where crowds gather for the World-Famous Sunsets Celebrations and enjoy vendors, artists, street performers while waiting. An experience not to be missed! Then walk or drive to Duval Street where there are abundant restaurants, shops, and music that fill the streets night and day. Come and Enjoy Paradise!
We rented this house for a week over the holidays. It was my husband and I, our four adult children and one fiancé. We discovered this is in fact the busiest time of the YEAR in Key West and decided to spend more time at the house and enjoying the pool than we originally planned. We all had a fantastic time. Arrangements were very easy to make and I spoke with the owner a number of times. She was available and answered all of my questions. We would highly recommend this home for your Key West trip. There is plenty of room and the outdoor area is fantastic. If you like Mexican food you have to eat at the nearby restaurant. I've since forgotten the name but it's within a mile of the home. We also found a fish market close by and did some cooking at the house. Everything you would ever need is stocked in the home. Would absolutely rent this home again if we return to Key West.
There are not enough stars to rate this home. It is even more beautiful and more importantly comfortable than described. It is pristine. Every room is spotless. The four bedrooms are quite large and the beds are comfortable with very high quality mattresses on all of them. The kitchen is so workable and so WELL stocked with condiments. Everything you need for cooking, pans and such, are there. There are two beautifully appointed living rooms but the one we used was the one by the pool. All the rooms have televisions, if you want to watch but we spent all our time lounging either beside or in the gorgeous, heated pool. It is perfect for relaxing on the water floats provided. But you can also relax beside the pool on lounges or under the covered patio, which also has a television. We dined out there every night. There is a huge gas grill that works perfectly.
The neighborhood is very safe and quite nice to walk after dinner, which we did every night. The neighbors are great and friendly.
Then of course you are so close to Key West and the beaches. But not so close to KW that you would have to put up with the rowdy crowds in the evenings. That is important. You can sit outside and contemplate the stars in peace and quiet.
I will definitely be planning a trip back next year!
The house was clean and VERY well stocked. It was perfect for our family of 6 but could easily accommodate more people. The pool is small and warm (perfect) and the use of the bikes was appreciated. Kathleen was accessible and responsive. We rented mopeds and additional bikes and really enjoyed the bike paths to Boca Chica and Key West. The house is actually on Stock Island which is still a Key West address.
Highly recommend A&B Lobster House, Smather's Beach and Mallory Square. We recommend this house for vacationing families.
The pool the outside living area the amenities the comfy beds, I could go on and on. It was clean, friendly and had everything you could need. We spent the greatest portion of our time outside by or in the pool. Sunday we watched football outside all day. I can't wait to return.
This property in Key Haven is perfect for families or groups looking to get a great value and avoid the noise of Key West. The backyard and pool are like a private oasis. Kathleen, the owner was great to work with and left nothing for us to worry about. The location in Key Haven is easy to get to by taxi and the ample parking for rental vehicles is so nice after dealing with parking in Old Town.
Just a great place to stay and I look forward to returning soon!
This house is as advertised, it is truely a home away from home in The American Carribbean. It's in a quiet & safe residential neighborhood, and easy to get to. It is clean comfortable & spacious. Kathleen, our hostess contacted me the day before we arrived, just to confirm our arrival time & tell us where to pick up the key.
. I took my 3 children (ages 17 & 15 year old twins) for a short tour around Key West before we went to the house, we were all a little tired & stiff from the drive down the keys, but the scenery makes the 3 1/2-4 hour drive worth it. A quick inventory of the pantry & fridges, yes 2 (1by the pool) revealed that just a minimum of grocery shopping was needed. There was already a few cold beers in the fridge & most of the little things like condiments, seasonings,olive oil,peanut butter, jelly & such were already there. It was nice to have a cold beer & relax a little before grocery shopping. The trip to the store was easy, but the return was a little more difficult, due to the construction on N. Roosevelt Blvd. Having lived in Key West before it wasn't too hard for me, but if you don't know your way around a GPS will be handy. It doesn't look like the construction will be done anytime soon.... I recommend a trip to FishBusterz, about 5 minutes away on Stock Island, the prices may seem a little high but still less than eating out,outstanding fresh seafood. I brought home fresh lobster,shrimp & mahi-mahi & cooked a seafood mixed grill by the pool, best meal of the week! Also while I'm talking about food on a budget you can't go wrong at El Siboney Restaurant, a Key West classic. Great Cuban food in a "rustic" atmosphere or the $5 lunch specials at the Smathers Food Bar on the beach.
You will truely have control of your vacation at this location. Quiet days or nights at home by the pool...Or 15 to 20 minute drive to downtown & all the activites,days... snorkeling, wave runners, para-sailing the beaches shopping... or night sunset, dinning out, from Louie's Backyard, to conch fritters from the stand by the aquarium, or trying the "Duval Crawl"... It's all there to do..... or not do. YOU decide.
Kathleen was an excellent hostess, pleasent, attentive, not intrusive. I would highly recommed this rental to anyone...Much better than all but the most exclusive hotels..but if you can afford that what are you looking here for?
One note... The community of Key Haven is in the flight path of the Naval Air Station, it does get noisy.
