Key West House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Would you enjoy truly modern luxury within walking distance to Key West's best restaurants, clubs, and art galleries? If so, this is the vacation house for you! The Property consists of two separate houses. The Front House is available only.

Basking in the sun on the elevated private sundeck

Cooking in the ultramodern kitchen with Bosch and Sub-Zero appliances

Pampering in the elegant Bizazza Bathroom

Savoring dinner on the cobblestone patio

Enjoy Florida-living at its best with large window-walls that frame views of the zen-style garden, the deep water pool, and the heated spa. This beautiful garden features palm trees, bamboos and tropical foliage framing the dry creek and dry pond. In addition, off the Main Entrance is a petite courtyard in which sunlight filters through a monastery bamboo and Japanese privet onto the private granite patio.

The two-story home featuring ultramodern architecture designed by Searle Lamaster Howe of Chicago is unique to Key West. Located in Old Town, the structure is constructed of board-formed concrete and houses two bedrooms, two baths, a spacious living/dining room, and a private second floor sundeck with its own shower.

The interior has an open plan with soaring ceilings, elegant lighting and European appliances. It is furnished with European and Carribean furniture; the bedrooms have European Beech walls, and the bathrooms offer Italian marble and Bisazza tile walls and the latest European fixtures.

In back is a large rock-laden garden and patio with a generously sized pool and attached heated spa.

Why Don and Kim Wilson chose Key West

Privacy and Convenience! With the large garden we feel like we are in our own oasis. Yet, everything that we need is a short walk away. You do not a car!

What makes this house unique

Luxurious and modern living -- no expense has been spared.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came here for a short vacation with myself and two daughters and loved it! Hate to recommend it in case we cannot return. As a father of two young adult daughters I was concerned for safety. No need to worry!! Don and Kim's property is very secure with the gates and the 8-foot fence allowed us to be comfortable and safe in the backyard pool and spa. Thank you for a great Vacation!

Stunning Contemporary Gem in Old Town

  • 5 of 5

We decided to meet our international friends in Key West for a few nights and thought of staying in Old Town so we'd be near it all. Not only is this home in the heart of all the action, it's one of the nicest, most modern, architectually stunning homes on the island. Everything is done with a flare of contemporary and class! You owe it to yourself to consider this over any local hotels or vrbo's as it will exceed your every wish!

Can't wait to come back and stay for a few more nights.

What an AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, TRANQUIL property. My husband and I traveled with another couple, our best friends, to Key West June 20 - June 25 and what a great time! Literally steps from Duval and all the shopping and action of the city. The home fit our needs so perfectly from the furniture to the bathrooms and the assorted amenities. It was great to come home to the serenity of a private home. I would for sure, and have already recommended this property to anyone wishing to experience the luxury and laid back lifestyle of the island. We kept the rental car parked for practically the entire trip and made our way around the city on scooters as well as an electric cart, either one being perfect for the island. The food, the atmosphere, the vibe of the island was wonderful. Kim was a pleasure to work with from booking our stay to questions during our stay. All in all just a great time and a WONDERFUL PIECE OF HEAVEN RIGHT IN THE HEART OF OLD TOWNE KEY WEST. TWO THUMBS UP. Thanks for the memories, we will be back!

A true gem in the heart of Key West

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our vow renewal in Key West. The property is absolutely beautiful and so clean. Kim and Don were very accommodating to our late departure due to our flight being changed. We enjoyed many hours in the pool and hot tub surrounded by their beautiful garden. The property is close to everything, but we still rented scooters because they are just fun! Despite the owners being on property, we completely forgot they were there the majority of the time. They were very respectful of our privacy and when we did see them we enjoyed our interactions very much. I can't say enough about how cool the design of the house really is. The showers are definitely a highlight. We will absolutely be returning to this property. Thank you Don and Kim for sharing your property with us.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed here for 4 nights and everything was wonderful. The beds are super comfy with nice mattress and pillows. I'm very picky about bedding and comfort so this exceeded my expectations. Everything was close by and easy walking distance. The hot tub was nice after a long day. There's a restaurant three doors down called Off the Hook which was amazing and a quick spot to grab something. I couldn't figure out how to turn the cable on to the master bedroom tv but besides that everything was great. The master shower was heavenly. I'd recommend this spot in a heart beat. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Hi Aaron: Thank you so much for staying with us on your Key West Vacation! We appreciate your kind remarks. I apologize that I was unaware that the remote control to the TV upstairs was not working. We have had that remote "reprogrammed" and I have added "verifying the AV Equipment" to my "pre-rental inspection". Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it.... and look forward to seeing you again. all the best, Kim, Don and Vergil Wilson

Great stay in modern comfort

  • 5 of 5

Had a chance to stay in this modern vacation home last spring. The location was great _- just steps from Duval Street. The house had every amenity we needed, including a deep swimming pool and heated spa in the middle of a serene Japanese garden. Despite being close to Duval, the house and garden were quiet and peaceful. Would definitely stay here again....

Best of Old Town

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent a last-minute long weekend at Kim and Don's beautiful house in Key West. We had such a great time in the ultramodern house with pool and spa steps away, Located just one block from Duval the locations was perfect. So was the house!!
