On VRBO & Homeaway you can now check availability & get an instant quote by entering the dates on the upper right and clicking detailed price. This is the full all inclusive rate including the 12.5% tax. You can make your reservation by clicking the 'Book' button on the upper right. I live in the building year round and do my best to make the process as painless as possible. Please keep in mind although the maximum occupancy is six, four is ideal comfort wise. I have it listed at six with small children in mind.

This is arguably the best available rental unit at 1800 Atlantic and one of the better ones in Key West. No expense was spared in the renovation which took over half a year. The kitchen alone cost over $100,000 featuring blue granite counter tops imported from Brazil. The floor tile was imported from Spain. An audio dock is wired throughout the unit for your listening pleasure. Over half a million went into renovating and furnishing this million dollar plus condo. Once you enter the unit you will be amazed at the craftsmanship and view. There are so many gadgets and switches its almost confusing.

Located only two miles from Duval the area offers the best of both worlds; close to downtown without most of the party noise. An Olympic sized heated pool and spa sit ocean side surrounded by a lushly landscaped garden. Plan a picnic or barbecue in the shade of this beautiful garden. When you are done relaxing by the pool hit the courts on one of three lighted tennis courts. Enjoy Smathers beach without the drive. located only a few blocks from the building Smathers offers sailboat, paddle board, hobie cat, chair, and umbrella rentals. Parasailing is also available. An over sized sidewalk runs parallel along the beach for walks, jogging, and biking,. Several chairs, coolers, and beach towels are available in the condo.

Once I receive either an e mail or booking request I supply my cell number. With three condos calls from people looking to negotiate were getting a little out of hand so I took the number down.

Thank you for considering one of my condo's. There is a link to my website towards the bottom of this page which contains the check in process and rental agreement.

Disclaimer: Renovation work is allowed at the building 9am - 5pm weekdays. Usually its quiet here but unfortunately there are exceptions. Neighbors give no warning of renovation work and even building management does little / nothing keeping us up to date on general work on the building. The safest bet is a hotel to avoid such surprises. Anything major that I see coming will give a heads up about though.

7. CANCELLATIONS - If a cancellation is made between the time of booking and 30 days prior to arrival the $100 deposit will be forfeited. The full balance is due 30 days prior to arrival. If a cancellation is made within the 30 days prior to arrival 50% will be refunded. Keep in mind this is only 50% of the base rate I would hold onto. NOT the grand total.

About Thomas Rechsteiner

I have lived in the building since 2005. I had planned on moving into this condo but changed my mind. It has a transient license which cannot be transferred within the building. A transient license is permission from the town to rent short term and they are a hot commodity in Key West.

Thomas Rechsteiner purchased this condo in 2013

Awesome condo in a great location on the ocean in Key West

  • 5 of 5

Every thing about this ocean-front condo was perfect, the location, the view, the beautifully appointed details of the unit and the pool. We swam, sunned and had lots of fun! Best adventure was taking the seaplane ride to Dry Tortugas. Best Christmas ever!

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo. Not only is it spacious, complete with a terrific view, but it's also well equipped with just about anything you could need. We were impressed with the maintenance and pleased to find that the kitchen knives had been sharpened. Tom is wonderful to deal with. I highly recommend this property.

Tom, along with this home was nothing short of perfect. The home was exceptionally clean, generally my first concern. Tom although residing in the building was the perfect host allowing privacy for use of his space. If needed I'm confidant he would have been available at a moments notice.

Toms instructions were articulate and revealed his sense of humor. Every comfort was considered. Thought and care were given to our every need. As others have mentioned the view, location, and facilities met every expectation. Truly, for the many homes we have had the privilege of staying in this mirrored our own home. We were comfortable from the moment we walked through the door.

Tom Thank You for sharing your home, we have found a home in Key West thanks to you!

Awesome Property!!

  • 5 of 5

Tom's Penthouse was everything we expected and MORE! The only thing we had to provide was food and drink. The kitchen is beautiful and equipped with everything you need to cook a gourmet meal, even down to the spices. The one extra we all enjoyed was the surround sound system throughout the condo. The lighting is marvelous and you will just have to experience it to know what I mean. The furnishings are nice and it is a very clean property. The views speak for themselves, and we loved the location; not far from all the sights and events, but out of the way enough to have a peaceful evening on the huge balcony. I highly recommend this property and would stay here again! Thanks Tom!!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I vacationed in Key West for a week to celebrate a long overdue honeymoon and his birthday. The condo was in a beautiful area of town (right next to Smathers beach and the nature preserve). We could see the ocean from every room, which was spectacular. We spent every morning and evening on the spacious balcony. The condo offered everything we needed for a relaxing week. Hope to be back soon!

Lifestyles of Rich and Famous for Sure

  • 5 of 5

Luxurious penthouse condo ovelooking ocean and pool. Very well appointed, decorated, fit and finish. Appliances, tile, showers, balconies, furniture, all are the quality you want at home. The condo is better than described. Very quiet, never hear neighbors or outside noise. Wake up to sunrise over the ocean.
