Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

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:

It starts with key west rental picking you up at the airport in their luxury shuttle to check in. Great. The property was phenomenal. The main house has 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms plus a 1/2 bath off the kitchen. Good size fully equipped kitchen. Dining room with seating for 6. Nice size living room. TV's in all the rooms. Plenty of air conditioners and fans. Great! The Casita next to the pool was fun, king bed, bathroom, air conditioning, fan and TV. My wife and I stayed there and enjoyed it. Good size private pool, very clean. We stayed for 5 nights and used it every day. Nice gas grill with plenty of propane. 100 yards from the quiet end of Duval street. I cannot say enough about this property. Fantastic experience!!!!

I have been going to Key West for over 25 years and am very familiar with the accommodations offered on the island. This rental service does a very good job. I actually just tried to book through them for a weekend in July upon returning. We rented the home we selected because we were traveling with a party of 8 and thought this layout would be more social than individual hotel rooms. There is a difference in staying somewhere like this instead of Santa Maria, Hyatt, or Ocean Key House. But, it's part of the true island experience and we would stay in this home again. If you go with the understanding that things are a little different in KW you will have an awesome time in this home. We felt fortunate for the opportunity!

Location Location Location! The Retreat is in a great spot, close to lower Duval away from the complete madness and fun of the square. You can access most of Key West by walking. The set up is nice, the pool house particularly good and very private. The pool itself small but pretty and nice. Thats were the really good bits end. This property is like a mirage, riddled with underwhelming points which individually you could slide but as an overall give it a 'what could have been' feeling. Described as "upscale", the house is dated, especially the kitchen. The appliance are old and work but at a snails pace. The broiler was more like a prooving draw. The crockery and silverware were dated, the furniture old and uncomfortable. The living room sofa would suck you right in! And why wouldn't you set the house up with consumables for the stay? Surely salt pepper, etc should be there? The Tv was poorly mounted the cable run over three walls, only SD was available it felt like watching Tv through the bottom of the glass boats they have here. They barely had any channels, yets its meant to be a luxury rental. Several bulbs were out in different rooms, an open bleach bottle and tins of paint in the half bath were clearly not stored properly, thankfully we didn't have kids or a pet. House keeping turned up randomly each day, often before you got up, leaving the dirty linen bags in the kitchen or on the porch. Not cool. Parking was an issue. Whilst you have a space, often locals on the street would park in front of the gates, on investigation an ongoing issue. No signs or marking on the roads to aid your cause. Just underwhelming. Its tough to recommend the property, but the bathrooms, pool, and location is up to snuff. The description is very much not of an upscale retreat, and didn't really meet expectations. On balance steer clear. Left very disappointed, thankfully Pina Coladas help.
