THE PORCH & POOL…
Southard Street is a famous, one-way Old Town street leading directly toward the downtown area of Duval Street. This street is known for its well-used bike path and its quintessential Key West conch houses. “Caribbean Fling” is one of those homes: a little gem perched along the street with a perfect little front porch to sit and watch the passersby and take in the island air. Follow the porch around the backyard to reach your own private oasis – a lagoon-style dipping pool of the perfect size for this lovely little home. Surrounded by outdoor seating and a tropical garden complete with an outdoor shower, you will have to find some very good reasons to leave your little slice of paradise on Southard Street.
THE LIVING AREA...
Through the lovely blue hurricane shutters and perfect front porch is a gorgeous island cottage, straight out of the pages of coastal living. Luscious island colors and fabrics, seashells and flowers decorate the open living area, complete with a flat screen TV with DVD player and an iPod dock. There is plenty of seating in this living area, including two separate couches and a small dining nook in the corner. One of the couches is a luxurious leather sofa that folds out to a Queen-sized sleeper sofa.
THE KITCHEN & ISLAND DINING AREA…
This home has one of the most unique dining areas you will find in Key West: on the walkway between the living and the kitchen is an all open-air dining area with space for 4 under a bamboo-style roof. One wall of the dining area has linen curtains that pull across to provide additional privacy of shelter from an afternoon shower. Follow the dining area to the kitchen, a tiny but very efficient indoor/outdoor space with a fridge, microwave, stove, oven, toaster oven, coffee makers, and all of the utensils and tools you’ll need to whip up a meal. It is island living at its best!
The master bedroom opens up off the living room and has a Queen-sized bed, flat screen TV, large dresser, and ceiling fan. The master bathroom is en-suite with a tile shower. The cozy second bedroom opens up off the outdoor dining area, with twin bunk beds. This cabin-style “bunk room” has an en-suite half bathroom. Both bedrooms have in-room air conditioning units, so each bedroom can be set at the perfect temperature.
Washer & Dryer, In-Room Programmable LD A/C Units, Ceiling Fans, Gated & Lushly Landscaped Outdoor Area with a Lagoon-Style Private Pool, Charcoal Grill, Flat Screen Cable TVs, Microwave, Toaster Oven, Gourmet Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided.

The arrival to this property was our first visit to Key West. We were thrilled. The house was clean and in good repair. We loved the pool and the privacy of the whole setting. The house was close to dining and the happenings of Duval Street. We were able to rent two bicycles and relive childhood emotions by biking to the ocean/beach and visit all of the area. Our only complaint was that our vacation was too short. There were so many other things to do, restaurants to visit and shops to browse in. I'd be happy to go back and recommend this property to my relatives and friends. Elkins,WV
Our typical day was coffee, breakfast and a soak in the pool/warm tub and then on to see the sites for the day, enjoying the warmer, breezy days shopping, seeing the history of Key West. Attended 3 theatre shows while there for the month, one at the Fringe Theatre, Waterfront Theatre and one at the Aqua Lounge. Enjoyed all of them. Another treat was music at most restaurants/bars, not only on Duval St, but in all areas of Key West. Also enjoyed regular movies at the Tropic Theatre and the Regal Cinema. Went on a beautiful sunset cruise, Hemingway House, the Aquarium, Mallory Square, Southernmost Point and all the different memorials. Too many to list, but our favorite restaurants/bars were Chicago on Greene for the jazz and Irish Kevin's for the entertainment. The Carribean Fling rental was very nice to come back to for a break in the afternoon and not have to go out all the time. We walked or biked everywhere. A car definitely would be a nuisance due to parking costs and availability. Will plan a visit back in the future !!
The property is comfortable and in an excellent location. Dennis Bentley was very helpful and responsive whenever I had questions.
My wife and I arrived at the Caribbean Fling on an extremely warm day and were in the pool within minutes, such a great way to cool off. The atmosphere of the cottage was great. We wanted to have a quite vacation and the Fling give us these opportunities.
We were able to enjoy the outdoors, the pool and have a meal in the midst of palm trees and beautiful flowers.
The multitude of options within the Fling, was wonderful TV, music and many books to read. We enjoyed the front porch watching and talking to folks with the many modes of travel.
We were impressed with the tour of Old Town on the train; love the Engineer Tour Guide, and all the History he spoke of. Many shops and restaurants were within walking distance, the walk down Duval Street is a once in a lifetime experience. We decide to try the Jet-Ski for the 27 mile guided tour around the Key West Island, it was beautiful.
What a delightful and comfortable place that we hope to return.
We had a wonderful time in Key West and plan to come again.
Dennis the property manager was very helpful and provided outstanding service.
My husband and I really enjoyed our visit to Old Town Key West and especially our stay at "Caribbean Fling". Our lovely island home was everything the listing pictures and description said it was and more! We were pleasantly surprised by the "homey" atmosphere which included the many pictures, books, and information about the house and community itself. The many other personal items made it a step above your average rental vacation home. It is centrally located, making all activities, attractions. and restaurants easily within walking distance. We truly enjoyed the quiet privacy of relaxing by the pool and looked forward to many enjoyable evening strolls around the pristine neighborhood. Caryne, the property manager, was both extremely helpful and accessible. We hope to go back to this Caribbean Paradise again soon and will definitely stay at 707 Southard Street.
