Bahama Village House Rental Photos and Description

3BR, 2BATH updated PRIVATE historic HOME, 70' meandering pool w/backyard Oasis

**** ARRIVE. RELAX. BE LOCAL in Old Town, Key West ****

Welcome to Paradise! TREETOPS is the perfect place to relax, honeymoon, work from home, or just get away from it all. Imagine being just a few minutes’ walk from all of Key West’s most famous attractions in Old Town, yet in the peace and solitude of a quintessential Key West private home. Simply, a slice of tropical paradise!

Our colorful 3 Bedroom, 2 full bath private home has recently been completely UPDATED, and meticulously furnished to a very high standard, with many one-of-a-kind furnishings and original local artwork. With ONLY Rave reviews from all our guests, TREETOPS is a fun Key West home experience perfectly located on a historic, quiet lane. Plus, being 2 blocks from the center of world famous Duval Street is a treat unto itself. Our location is simply perfect.

Our association consists of five private homes and is located just steps just away from some of the best restaurants on the island! This quiet, adult community of homes share the large lazy lagoon pool and backyard. The unique 70' meandering, heated, salt water pool is just steps from our back porch- arguably one of the largest private pools in Old Town.

We have many returning guests who find TREETOPS to be their "happy place". In addition to a fantastic vacation spot, TREETOPS is also known as an ideal "work from home" setting, and a writer's paradise. The famous Ernest Hemingway House is one block away if you are in need of some writing inspiration.

And, if you want to feel some sand between your toes, the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor Park is a short walk, or bike ride, away. While you’re here, your home away from home will have every luxury and convenience you might want.

THE AMENITIES...Two level living for privacy and comfort. All NEW furnishings and bedding + air conditioners, washer, dryer, ceiling fans and wood blinds in every room. Flooring is hardwood throughout. Sparkling NEW Master Bathroom en suite features walk-in shower with glass doors and quartz bench.

TOP LEVEL: The master bedroom suite boasts 15' ceilings and a large covered porch featuring a 'two person' hammock to enjoy tropical breezes, a cocktail or simply solitude on the extremely private second level. A "walk- in closet", full bath & private side entrance are all part of the MBR Suite. -- Pocket french doors lead out to the covered upper porch which overlooks the lagoon pool, lush grounds and a view of the historic Key West lighthouse. In the Fall of 2016, we completely renovated the master bath that features a walk in shower w/bench, glass doors, new tile flooring , vanity etc. etc , -- just gorgeous!

FIRST FLOOR: Another full bath with walk in shower and TWO more bedrooms. A large wall mounted LED Flat Screen TV is featured in the living room and wireless high-speed Internet access is provided throughout the home including THREE covered porches. HDTV's are hung in each large bedroom.

The bedrooms offer top level mattresses for your comfort. All sheets and towels are provided. A new Washer and Dryer are located in the home. Beach chairs, cooler and beach towels are also provided to make travel to the ocean a breeze!

RESORT LIKE OASIS: New, trek wood Adirondack chairs right off your back porch are perfect for reading or having a drink poolside. We provide a Weber gas grille in our back porch for your private use.

The common backyard areas are lush and offer both sun and shade. Gorgeous nighttime lighting surrounding the pool feels like you are staying in a five star resort. Professional landscapers and pool technicians keep our tropical grounds spotless!

The large, deep, heated (in season) meandering style pool is surrounded by established palm trees, professional landscaping and amazing evening lighting. It is one of the largest free form, salt water pools on island. Use the steps to walk into the shallow end. The deep end is perfect for floating.

EASE OF TRAVEL: Did you know, the island of Key West is only two miles by four miles? Simply fly into the Key West International Airport and take a 10 minute cab ride to TREETOPS in Old Town. We include 3 bikes with your rental to provide ease of travel around our small island. (A $30/day savings!)

Key West is a walker's paradise!

Visitors to Key West have started paying closer attention to our amazing culinary neighborhood located steps away on Petronia Street after discovering Blue Heaven, one of the most popular breakfast, live music and dining spots on the island since 1992. TripAdvisor Top Rated restaurants nearby include: Blue Macaw, Santiago’s Bodega, Six-Toed Cat, Bliss, Firefly and La Creperie (with their recent addition of a new wine bar). Boutique shops and art galleries surround our local neighborhood restaurants.

ONE off-street parking space can also be made available at an additional fee. (CONTACT OWNER directly for availability). Safe neighborhood street parking is available surrounding the home at no cost.

As you can see, TREETOPS offers vacation living at its best-- tucked away in an adult, quiet and relaxing community on a lazy lane-- near the very best that Key West has to offer..... "Close to perfect. Far from normal."

We are proud to share our recently renovated home with you and can offer you the very best in vacation living--- or a wonderful setting to "work from home" as many of our guests have done.

About Sheryl Hoss email:

We are from Boston and have been visiting KW for many, many years. Now, we hope you will enjoy our southernmost home as much as we do! We have taken pride in the renovations and outfitting our home to a very high standard so our guests will be comfortable and have everything they may need during their stay. We are always available to answer any questions you may have before or during your time at Treetops.

The two-person hammock on the second level is our favorite spot in the late afternoon!

Why Sheryl Hoss email: chose Key West

The location is simply amazing and the property and the grounds are gorgeous and very well maintained. Our quiet adult community is perfect for a couple looking to get away, honeymoon, or work from home. We have many return renters from year to year and only have had rave reviews. We had a great time making the home feel like a Key West experience.

What makes this house unique

Treetops is close to everything special KW has to offer in a private home that has two levels of living space complete with a master bedroom suite with a walk in closet- unheard of in KW. We are located off Petronia Street, which has 8 restaurants. Many of which are rated in the top 10 on tripadvisor. The location is SUPERB.

Guestbook comments from the owner

AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

As I write this sitting on my couch in Michigan I happen to realize what a relaxing, exciting yet very affordable trip that we just got back from. Start off with the owner Sheryl was just an absolute angel to deal with in getting this house rental from the beginning to the end. The house was everything and more than we could have expected, it was spotless, very comfortable and the pics truly didn't do it justice ( please don't redo the upper bathroom lol ). The yard and pool were taken care, to keep both in pristine shape by the landscaper and pool company and they were both very willing to do a little extra if we needed. The neighbors and oh the neighbors Joy and Larry we already miss you two, everyone was definitely very friendly and relaxed and we all treated as if it was ours. So if your looking for an unforgettable experience within walking distance to everything yet just far enough off of the beaten path to have lots of peace and quiet this is the place to go. Beds were very cozy and comfortable, sheets were all top notch quality, just enough tv to allow you to fall asleep with noise on in the background or fall asleep in the 2 person hammock. We will be back in September to celebrate our 1 yr Anniversary so set it aside for us. So take the plunge down to Key West and contact these great owners as you will not regret a moment you are there.

It Is What It Is..

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Sheryl and Dan for the great home to stay at. After reserving and paying for the Treetops I kept my expectations in check, because the photos of the house were so nice, I tend to say "my compliments to the photographer", but they are a perfect representation of the house. It Is what the photos show. The place is a little piece of paradise inside of paradise. The neighborhood is very quiet and easy walking distance from Duval St. and the beaches, and a quick bike ride to Smathers Beach, and they provide the bikes. The house is set up nicely with all the supplies you need. Thanks again Sheryl and Dan, I had a great and relaxing time and you guys were so easy to work with. The Best to you both.

Fantastic accommodation and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 weeks at Sheryl and Dan's property in Key West in May 2016. The accommodation was perfect - it had everything you could possibly need/want. We spent a lot of time moving between the shaded verandah and the hammock! It was a tough choice! The pool is wonderful and although it is shared we often had it to ourselves. The location of the house could't be better - so close to all amenities, yet far from the "madding crowd". We just loved it. We were very fortunate to meet Sheryl who was great fun and full of valuable information, and she introduced us to a number of her wonderful friends who made us feel very welcome, especially her neighbours Bruce and Susan who were absolute stars. This was our first trip to Key West and we really hope to return as it is such a fun location with plenty to do. We made great use of the bicycles as Key West is such an easy place to ride around (and nicely flat!). We would highly recommend this property.

Absolutely the most fun place we have ever stayed.

  • 5 of 5

This house was spotless and beautifully decorated with a flair found only in Key West. The location was perfect to walk to most everything we needed. Totally enjoyed each day we were there.

The grounds/pool are spectacular and the neighbors wonderful. You truly feel like you are in the islands and not in Florida. Could not recommend this vacation spot enough. We would go back in a minute, and plan to.

A BIG BRAVO to the owners for a job well done and making our stay so comfortable. Thanks so much from the bottom of our hearts!

Rita and David
