About the property

Tropical Retreat, at 519 Catherine Street, is on a quiet lane half a block off the upscale Upper end of Duval St. where there are many sophisticated restaurants, high-end art galleries and shops. Downtown Duval St. is within easy walking distance from Tropical Retreat to enjoy the exciting nightlife, music, bars and fun Key West has to offer. The Southernmost Point and the sandy beaches of the Atlantic are a short 4-block, 7 minute walk away.

Built in the 1920's, this incredibly spacious bungalow-style home has 12 foot high ceilings and large, sunny rooms. The main house includes a living room with queen sleeper sofa, dining room with a very large table to seat your group, a fully-equipped kitchen with high end features and fixtures and powder room. The 2 bedrooms feature a queen bed in one, the other with two twins which can be converted to a king bed. Each bedroom has an ensuite tiled bath. The third bedroom with king bed includes a private bath and efficiency kitchen and is in the stand-alone cottage adjacent to the pool at the rear of the property. The sunny 13' x 25' heated pool and deck sit in a totally secluded, private area surrounded by tropical and lush bougainvillea, hibiscus and palms.

Tropical Retreat also has the added bonus of off street private parking which makes it a rare gem in Old Town!

Reviewer Comments:

Be vary cautious with this company. My reservations were cancelled due to hurricane Irma and they refuse to provide me with a refund due to their hurricane policy. Considering the circumstances and the fact that they were forced to closed I feel they should do the right thing and not just keep my almost $2000. They were impossible to get a hold of and claimed that it was due to everything being down, yet they had plenty of time to update their website and facebook to let everyone know that they were open. Their number was forwarded to the main Vacasa number which can not do anything to help with the Key West rentals. Today the manager, Tanner, called me back and was incredibly unsympathetic. I tried to explain that if situation was on my end, where I could not make it there due to the hurricane on my city (which there was), and not in Key West (in other words they were still open), I would understand they they would still bill me because I did not show up. He could have cared less what I said and with a smug attitude said "I was contradicting myself". I'm not sure how that is the case but he did success in bringing my true feelings out. Any respectable company would have issued a refund in this situation where the city was closed due to a state of emergency.

Reviewer Comments:

Such a spacious and functional house. Way bigger than I thought it would be and the pool is a great size too. Large front porch that you don't see in the pictures with a swing on it. Great location also. This house is set up perfect for families or 3 couples. Everyone has their own bedroom and bathroom in their bedrooms and the bedrooms are spaced apart perfectly for peace and quiet. The back cottage is adorable and very private. We used the pool twice a day. Staff was very in tune with our needs. HIGHLY recommend this adorable home. There was also enough parking for a pick up truck and a small car.

Reviewer Comments:

We were in town for our daughters wedding. This house was the perfect gathering place for family and friends. The location was perfect. The kitchen was great for cooking breakfast or dinner. The pool was so much fun! We would definitely stay here again. We particularly liked having a bathroom for every bedroom and the outdoor space around the pool. A few little "nice to have's" would be quieter air conditioning (although it kept us nice and cool!!) and better lighting in the kitchen. The pictures are pretty accurate, but the house ended up being larger than I expected mostly due to the high ceilings. It was very clean and tidy. Washer and dryer worked great. An added bonus was the shuttle service provided by Key West Vacation Rentals. Steve dropped us off and picked us up several times. Always with a smile! Thanks!! Try Camille's for breakfast at the end of the block away from Duval and La Grinote french bakery on Duval. Delicious!!
