Space 810 sq. ft.
Property type house

About the property

You are steps from Duval Street, Hemingway House and Blue Heaven Restaurant

The resilience after hurricane Irma is spectacular! Tourists are back, having a wonderful time. Key West is PARADISE once again! Our neighborhood, Duval Street and all 165 miles from Miami to Key West on US 1 are clear! That highway is a majestic masterpiece that was somehow immune to the wrath of Irma.

The main difference is the increased love from servers, bartenders and workers on the island who are embracing tourists and locals. By coming you are helping the Keys and their hardworking people recover from the evacuation.

Beautifully remodeled home with quaint charm. Colorful and breezy with covered front and back porches. Sliding back doors open onto lush landscaping and one of a kind lazy river heated pool.

Equipped with full kitchen, washer/dryer, local art that includes an original Shel Silverstein mural. (Shel was a beloved Key West artist and author.)

Steps from Blue Heaven Restaurant, Hemingway.House and Duval Street but you can retreat to a quiet home in one of the last authentic Key West neighborhoods. Two bicycles come with the property. One parking space is included with this property, however, you don't need a car! Everything is a short walk or bicycle ride away!

The heated pool is shared within a five home community. Responsive and helpful and friendly owners live just across from the pool.

Two bedrooms each have a queen size bed. Two bathrooms each have walk in showers. HDTV cable and high speed WIFI are all included.

This is a one month minimum rental! Come join us and live like a Conch in the Conch Republic for a month or longer! If you can work from your laptop, you have two full desks and wifi so you can work in paradise and play in paradise when you are finished telecommuting.

This property is NEW to the vacation rental market on January 1, 2015.

About Susan Mitchell

We are living the dream! Thirty years ago we hoped to someday move to Key West! After working and raising our family in Athens Ohio for 30 years, the dream came true. Susan has been renting her weekly vacation condos in Key West for the last five years in the Historic Truman Annex. Bruce recently retired from The Athens NEWS, the paper he founded in 1977. Susan and Bruce have two sons. Will is a college student at OSU. Orhan is a CPA who works in Columbus, Ohio.

Susan Mitchell purchased this house in 2014

Why Susan Mitchell chose Bahama Village

This Terry Lane property became available because we moved across the pool. We were so taken by the colorful little row of cigar maker houses, each unique and well appointed with the most amazing backyard. We now wish to share this get away cottage with travelers.

What makes this house unique

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Literally between the world famous Hemingway House and Blue Heaven on a cozy narrow lane. Because this is a one month minimum rental, you will feel like a local Key Wester rather than a tourist!

Conch Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent another WONDERFUL month in our November Conch Paradise and plan to do so EVERY November going forward. Everything was PERFECT as usual. We can't say enough about the owners, Susan and Bruce who now are dear friends of ours. I don't know what the Garden of Eden looked like, but I believe it might have been something like the back yard at "JB's Poolside Paradise". Beautiful.

We are already looking forward to next November!

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Susan and Bruce, We had a great stay in Bahama Village. It is truly a great little house in a fantastic location. We were a little concerned about how things would be so soon after Irma but we were happy to see how hard everyone worked to get Key West back to normal and our stay was absolutely great.

Thanks again, see you soon,

Brad and Melanie

This place felt comfortable from the moment I set foot in it.

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this place. A great location, and lovely hosts. Wake up in the morning and jump into the pool before doing anything else. Then go for a bike ride, and go see a band at the Green Parrot. Enjoy life without a car and make some new friends. You will not be disappointed.

Paradise, sanctuary & our piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth visit & we love every minute. Key West is amazing but we enjoy just relaxing by the pool. A perfect location, close to fabulous restaurants, Duval street, Mallory Square, Higgs & Smathers beaches. All within walking distance but if you don't want to walk bikes are provided. Love our daily bike rides along the ocean & thru the neighborhoods.☀️🌴🐚🐔🐠
