Fantastic place to stay in Key West!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The Boli Townhouse was perfect for our Key West vacation. All of the convenience of the Truman Annex - within walking distance of Duval Street and all of the great restaurants in Old Town, yet secluded enough that it was quiet. It is a beautiful home, clean and well maintained. We enjoyed many hours relaxing on the back patio enjoying the warm weather. Thank you again, John, for letting us use your townhouse.

John was awesome to work with. Everything was exactly as the pictures and the listing. House had a lot of attention to detail along with great communication with the owner. He gave us great ideas of food and activities. The house was a perfect location. Close to the Main Street but yet far enough to keep things quaint Had a great week thanks to the house and the owner.

Perfect Townhouse for a stay in Key West!!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

All the positive reviews were accurate and even better. The location in Truman Annex was a sight to see. The townhouse is extremely clean and nestled in a beautiful neighborhood, so close to all activities yet just away enough for a quite getaway. The owner, John B. provided all the details prior to our stay which made selection of restaurants and sites so much easier. The townhouse is spacious, there were four people in our party and we stayed for seven days.The second room is very comfortable. It's a short walk to key sites such as Hemingway House, Truman Little White House and Duval street. The backyard deck is a great place to just hang out with a hammock and just steps from the swimming pool. John was extremely helpful and considerate to all our needs and was available at any time if we needed. Our family would definitely go back to Key West for vacation and the Boli Townhouse will be top on our list.

Boli Townhouse rental

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

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.

Boli Townhouse is located in the Truman Annex, the heart of Old Town Key West. Boli is only 2 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks to Duval Street and all downtown activities. One can walk or bike to everything and not need a car.

Key West is 90 miles from Havana and 155 miles from Miami Airport. Key West is the southernmost city in the USA. The Old Town is almost 200 years old and retains the classic historic seaport atmosphere. Our beautiful island town is 2 x 4 miles and is surrounded by clear waters and sandy beaches. The many leisure activities, great restaurants, live music venues, museums, art galleries and water activities make any visit a wonderful experience.

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.
