* Please NOTE: I only list my property on legitimate rental sites, like VRBO and Homeaway. I will never list it on Craigslist. If you see my property listed on Craigslist, it was not put there by me.
Key West Oasis is a private two bedroom/two bath rental house ideally located in Charming Old Town, Key West, Florida, close to Duval street, great restaurants, bars and the beach.
This 1906 'cigar maker's cottage' has been newly renovated into a stylish Key West retreat. The house features an open floor plan with original Dade County pine walls and ceilings. The main house has hard wood flooring throughout and houses the master suite, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and the living and dining area. Inside the house are all the comforts of home, with every room providing its own unique feel.
Three sets of French doors lead from the living and dining area onto your own private lanai and pool area. Bask in the sun and listen to the tranquil sounds of falling water, which is the backdrop of the heated pool. Tropical plants and flowers are abundant and offer complete privacy for guests. The back gardens and pool area were designed to create a calming effect, which pervades the mind, body and spirit.
The detached cottage offers a 2nd bedroom and bath with a private open-air shower – what better way to enjoy your morning shower than amidst flowering bougainvillea trees! The cottage also features 20 ft vaulted ceilings and two sets of French doors which open to the garden and pool area. Guests tell us they love having the detached cottage, as it offers couples traveling together much more privacy.

Everything from our check in to check out was easy! The house is definately an Oasis. The house/backyard and pool area are the best!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. Wharff and Taylor’s
When you live up North you need to get away from the winter at some point. We take our time and research our trips as we can't afford a wrong choice with our job schedules. We hit this one dead on...the OASIS was exactly what we needed and hoped for. Everything you need for a week away and more. The Pool was used daily as the afternoon heat made lounging a joy. The location allowed ventures to other areas not previously explored yet central enough to go anywhere on foot. The personal info/reference book prepared and left for use was a great resource. A Key West Gem !!
It was a pleasure having you and your family stay with us at KWO! So glad that you enjoyed your time in Key West and at the house! Thank you for being such wonderful guests and for the great review! If your travels ever lead you back our way, please look us up, we would love to have you stay with us again!
Wonderful stay at Key West Oasis🌴
We loved Key West Oasis! Beautiful home & great location (far enough away from Duvall Street but easy walking distance). The layout of the main house and cottage was perfect for 2 couples. We enjoyed sitting by the pool and porch in the afternoon, relaxing. Beautifully landscaped!🌴�
Can’t wait to return!!!
Hi Sandy and Charles:
I am so glad that you both enjoyed your time in Key West and at KWO - thank you for being such wonderful guests and for the great review!
If your travels ever lead you back to Key West, please look me up, we would love to have you stay with us again!
All the best,
Great Time @ KWO!
Our family Christmas get away at KWO was fantastic!! The house was just right for us and our 2 adult sons, who stayed in the guest house. The house is furnished with everything you could need and so comfortable. We especially loved the back porch sitting area along with the pool, which made a relaxed setting for us to catch up with one another. The house had such a nice ambience (lamps!) and we enjoyed just hanging out there most of the day. Higgs Beach is close enough to walk to if you don't have a car. We have been to Key West many times and I can say this was by far the BEST trip ever! The house met our every expectation. Booking with Kim was great as well as Gary who met us at the house upon arrival. Thanks guys for your great customer service. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed! We will return to KWO on our next trip down.

Key West Oasis is centrally located and within walking distance to Duval Street, great shopping, restaurants and bars. Unless there are mobility issues, a car is not necessary once you have arrived in Key West. Bikes are a fun way to see and get around the island. The Bike Place is one block from the house and they do daily and weekly rentals.
