Old Town House Rental Photos and Description

Key West Oasis (KWO), private gardens and pool, seperate cottage w/ 2nd BR/Bath

* 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.

Key West Oasis is located in the historic Old Town district, close to restaurants, bars, Duval Street etc. To give you an idea of what is located around the house, check out the distance to the following:

The Bike Shop Rentals, Famous Sandy's Café, and Faustos Supermarket, 1 block

Surpassed all expectations and is truly an "Oasis"

  • 5 of 5

With nearly a year of planning, we had worked up high expectations for our Key West vacation. Stepping in the door, and being immediatly greeted by the local homeowner's representative; we knew that we were in paradise. The upscale, island decor both indoors and outdoors. The private spa like pool with all the amenities, led to days of relaxation. This has truly earned its cottage name, "Key West Oasis". Thank you for the great memories. We WILL be back!

Truly exceptional

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in Key West and our first time staying at Key West Oasis. This was so much better than a hotel or B&B. The décor was warm and welcoming and the kitchen was fully stocked. We used the pool daily and the outdoor shower was phenomenal. Some fantastic restaurants close by. We would definitely stay here again and again. Truly a gem in Key West.

Awesome!!!

The owners have thought of everything. Close enough to the action but far enough if you want to relax from the crowds. Highly recommended!! Can't wait to come back.

An Enchanting Oasis

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using vrbo to book a vacation. We thought renting a home vs. a hotel would be a more relaxing experience. It was off the charts fantastic! The decor and location of the home was so charming and convenient. The pool and landscaping were stunning. Kim Gilbert put so much attention into the details. She clearly takes pride in providing a first class experience for her guests. The property caretaker, Gary Crewe, had a marvellous sense of humour and gave us some wonderful ideas of places to visit. One of which was the small Cuban restaurant around the corner. It had the best cafe con leche ever! There is a place to rent bikes one block away and parking wasn't too challenging. We can't wait to visit Key West again next year and hopefully stay here. Thank you Kim!

Best,

Elizabeth, Andre and Violet

Key west oasis

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home tucked away on a residential street away from the action but close enough to walk anywhere. Ten minutes to the beach, two minutes to grocery shopping, yoga, health club, etc. Nightlife on Duval just five blocks away. But the real treat is the totally private backyard, pool and waterfall. Read on the back porch (equipped with fan), then dip in the pool. There is even a guest house for private naps! Owner is concerned about your happy stay, and a local contact makes sure you have everything you need. This is our second year in a row! Oasis indeed!

High School Graduation/Fishing Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at KWO! This vacation home was amazing and perfect for me, my husband and our two young adult children! It's a beautifully decorated bungalow/cottage that is well equipped, clean and centrally located. We loved the lanai and swimming pool ... best way to cool down after a 6 hour fishing trip. Thank you Kim for the fishing guide recommendation. We fished three out of the six days and each was a success (we caught tarpons, barracuda, yellowtail snapper, amberjack, red grouper, shark ... good variety). The Yellowtail Snapper was delicious! Would definitely make a return trip back to KWO. Thank you Kim and Ron for sharing your home!!
