|Minimum Stay||27 nights|
Nothing will fully prepare you for the experience of walking through this home for the first time. Imagine a home where every detail has been conceived and rendered with no regard for cost. The first thing you’ll see is that spectacular handmade chandelier hanging in the dramatic two-story foyer. The custom staircase is strung with stainless steel cable and of course, there’s all that gorgeous mahogany everywhere. Designed with the finest of all things in mind, this two-story, three-bedroom home is surrounded by a lush tropical garden, with a vast patio and pool area in the very private backyard. Immaculately designed, handsomely furnished, beautifully landscaped, and conveniently located (just steps from the White Street shops, Garrison Bight marina, and less than a mile from Duval), this stunning home is one of a kind.
**This home is available for lease by the month, in accordance with local ordinances strictly enforced by the City of Key West. The minimum lease is for 27 nights in February and for 29 nights during any other period.
The Meadows is a residential district of Old Town Key West. It is a quiet neighborhood with primarily private homes and noiseless streets. However, you will be just a few blocks from White Street, a commercial area with great local restaurants, shops, and grocery options, and just down the street from Higgs Beach, where you can jump in the water or fish off the pier. You will be about a mile from Duval Street, an easy bike ride or walk any day. There is plenty of parking off-street and on the street for when you take the car. The Garrison Bight Marina is just three blocks up the road for those who live part-time on the water.
THE LIVING AREAS & KITCHEN…
A 10,000-gallon tropical fish tank is the centerpiece of this incredible space. You could sit for hours watching the fish and the live coral of this perfect habitat. Or, you could relax on the huge leather sectional to watch the 75” flat screen TV with its surround sound system. A whole wall of Mahogany French doors opens the living room to the pool area.
On the second floor, you’ll find a separate media room with another enormous flat screen TV, as well as a private office for those unfortunate times when work cannot wait. If you do have to work, you will be surrounded by windows with a nice view of the pool.
The kitchen and dining area are a masterpiece of culinary design, with (you guessed it) Mahogany ceilings, custom cabinetry and stainless steel commercial grade appliances including a gas range. You’ll find all of the tools and equipment you will need to create a gourmet meal, including a built-in espresso & coffee bar. There is bar seating for a casual bite, and a full dining area just off the kitchen next to the fish tank for a fancier night in. The powder room is conveniently located in the hall.
THE PORCH, PAVILION & POOL AREA…
The front porch of this unique home is a shady place to people watch, with ceiling fans, comfortable patio furniture and mahogany decking. The back yard is surrounded by a tall wall, which can be entered from either street of this corner lot. On the side of the house is a BBQ master’s dream: a huge grill and two “Big Green Egg” cooking devices, set beside a hammock to relax while your steak is on. The private pool area is an exotic retreat: the large heated pool is surrounded by luxurious designer patio furniture including a sectional outdoor sofa in front of a custom fire pit. There is also a pavilion with a dining set for poolside meals even during a tropical shower.
The real show-stopper of this designer home is the Master Suite: set off of the living area on the first floor with a full wall of French doors to the back yard, this Master Retreat is fit for royalty. The King bed can be remotely adjusted up or down to sleep or watch the flat screen TV. The Master Bathroom is almost the size of the bedroom, with the first vanity and a unique dual shower fit for a spa. There is a separate vanity room off the bathroom with an elliptical machine, bathtub, and the second vanity sink.
The second and third bedrooms are located on the second floor and share a bathroom in the hall. The second bedroom has a Queen bed and flat screen TV. The third bedroom has two Twin beds that can convert to a King upon request, and a flat screen TV. The hall bathroom has a shower/tub combination.

My wife and I enjoyed a four week stay here. The property is excellent, as is the location. Moreover, the staff of Last Key were extremely helpful, making our stay pleasant and responding quickly to any issues that arose.
