Boli Townhouse rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the Boli Townhouse after much research online and were so pleased that we decided on this little gem. John was great about contacting us to let us know that we could check in early if desired as the previous tenants had checked out early. This did not feel like many rentals where the decor and furnishings are bland and tasteless. There was much attention to detail and it immediately felt warm and welcoming. The beds were very comfortable and the entire place was very clean. We loved the loft and open feel but also appreciated the privacy the design afforded. Boli Townhouse is in an ideal location off Duval Street. The house was well stocked with many extras such as beach towels, cooler, sunscreen, etc. as well as a bottle of wine and a bag of gourmet cookies. We rented bikes which was definitely the way to get around town. We really enjoyed Glazed Donuts for some fabulous warm unique donuts on Eaton Street. La Creperie and Sarabeth's were our favorites for a full breakfast. Our favorite restaurant was Caroline's on Duval St.; it was very casual but the food was delicious, not overpriced, and the portions were HUGE. Our favorites here were the fish sandwich, shrimp po boy and ahi salad. Blue Heaven had a very fun atmosphere. Boli Townhouse is very close to Fort Zachary Taylor Beach which, in our opinion, was by far the nicest beach on Key West for swimming and snorkeling. We saw quite a variety of fish by the rocks here just a short way off shore which was comforting for our 12 year old. As far as other activities we enjoyed our kayak/snorkeling in the mangroves with Lazy Dog, scuba diving with Dive Key West, a couple of snorkeling trips to Bahia Honda which was about 45 minutes away. We were disappointed that we were not able to get to Dry Tortugas as the ferry was booked far in advance. Also, instead of the enjoying the sunset at Mallory Square which can be a bit crowded we went to the wharf right by the house which was far more enjoyable for us. John Bollinger was great to work with; great communication and it felt like he really wanted us to enjoy our stay. Couldn't have been more pleased with our stay in this place!

Boli townhouse was a so tranquil & quite!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse had 2 huge bedrooms and a sofa sleeper. It was fabulously decorated in that Key West eclectic charm with everything you need to have a great time. Your just about 4 blocks of Duval Street and the crazy good times. Thanks, John

Everything you could wish for and more

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been happier with our rental of this property. It was spotlessly clean, well decorated, had everything you could wish for (except a tea kettle but we managed) The owner provided towels and toiletries and there were lots of thoughtful touches- a bottle of wine and delicious cookies waiting for us. Previous guests had left larder basics and items in the fridge which were very useful - and thanks to whomever was before us and left us cold beer - just what we needed after a long drive. The beds were incredibly comfy and the room temperatures just right. The location is superb , the pool just seconds walk away, there is a BBQ, a hammock - everything you could possibly need. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to up to 4 people to stay in.

Perfect Key West Get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples staying at this beautiful Boli townhouse! When we decide to return to KW I won't even have to think about where to stay. The townhouse was clean, well-maintained and sweetly decorated. I love to cook, good pots and pans are important to me....they were in perfect condition. Bath towels seemed brand new. Furniture was in excellent condition. The beds were comfy, big and had lots of pillows to choose from! Fabulous washer/dryer, so we didn't have to pack as many clothes. Back deck....lovely! It had lots of greenery for privacy. How fun to have breakfast every morning on the deck. Pool was wonderful. Close enough to walk to things we wanted to get to like Mallory Square, Duval St, USCGC Ingham, Butterfly museum, jet skiing and other tours, plus, great restaurants. Close enough to walk back to to take a break and then return later to the sights. We easily contacted John who was very welcoming and wanted to be sure everything was as we needed. Wish I could keep this place a secret, but that wouldn't keep this place in business and John and his wife deserve an ovation for keeping such a sweet get-a-way! Thanks so much, John!

Excellent place. Near everything and exceptionally clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I will definitely stay at the absolutely beautiful Boli House every chance we can. All the comforts of home but while on vacation is how it feels. You are able to enjoy the peaceful surroundings while resting but within walking distance to any activity you can imaging. Bicycles are also great especially if wanting to go to the beach. John makes sure that you are well taken care of so that you may enjoy every second of Key West.

Beautiful, Comfortable, Fun, Excellent Location...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Boli Townhouse. We go to Key West 1-2 times per year and this is our favorite place to stay. The remodel is amazing and the home has everything we could ask for and more. The owner takes exceptional care of his home and goes above and beyond to ensure his guests have EVERYTHING they need. He provides great information on local businesses, restaurants, and activities. Great place for 1-2 couples (or 4 friends) to stay for a fun key west vacation.

Key West is 90 miles from Havana and 155 miles from Miami Airport. Key West is the southernmost city in the USA.

Notes:
Boli Townhouse is filled with island art and unique collectibles which will inspire you. Many examples are shown on this website, enjoy! Come for the Sunset Celebration, beaches, beautiful water activities, and stay for Fantasy Fest. Stroll our lively streets and visit our fine art galleries and museums. Let Hemmingway's cats remind you that Key West has a rich literary history as well. Boli is the perfect holiday getaway, only two blocks to Duval Street and two blocks to the beach (Fort Zachary Taylor State Park). Don't forget, Key West is full of great restaurants, live music and the fresh seafood is delectable. Catch your own or just grin when you are served fresh lobster, shrimp or grouper. Awaiting you is a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy while relaxing on the outside deck! Do plan a visit to Boli Townhouse and I know you will return often, as many others do.
