About the property

Groups of 8-12, a private pool and tropical landscaping in Old Town Key West!

A reflection of old Key West, Eisenhower's Retreat was designed and built with the architectural feel of an old "Conch House", but with all the amenities of a new luxury home.

Situated on the edge of Old Town Key West near everything Key West has to offer, your home boasts tall ceilings, large rooms, an expansive and well appointed kitchen with custom cabinets as well as a heated pool and private boat slip.

Enjoy the convenience of two off-street parking spaces or simply bike to Duval St. Bayview Park is only a block away and was built on the premise that at one time it overlooked the bay before expanding Key West to include "New Town".

Enter to a "shotgun" view (reference to old Key West homes which would allow, if fired, a shotgun shot to pass from the front door to the back door with out interruption) of the downstairs through which you can view the custom kitchen, dining area, living and lastly, back yard. The kitchen has custom cabinets and stainless steel appliances as well as all teh tools you'll need to prepare the finest of cuisine!

Just in front of the kitchen is a large wood dining table seating 6 comfortably.

The Living rooms is comfortably situated with a pull out sofa and large HD flat screen with full HD cable.

Wish to enjoy the tropical air? Lounge on your private porch take a dip in your private heated pool.

On the next floor are two master suites with en suite bathrooms in each. Each suite has it's own balcony and walk in closets. All your luxury linens exceed the highest of standards and we aim to provide you with the comfort to make your stay not only memorable, but heavenly as well.

Bring the whole family! The top floor has a loft with 4 twin beds, which can be arranged to make two King beds (with notice) and a central bathroom. The top floor also has a private room with two twin beds as well and can also be joined to make one King bed. Whether its kids or adults, this home provides numerous options to accommodate the widest of sleeping accommodations necessary, not often found in ole Key West.

We hope to have you as our guest at Eisenhower's Retreat!

Why Javier Garrido chose Meadows

One of only a handful of homes situated near the water in Old Town Key West. Having a private boat slip situated just a few steps from a secluded back yard provide a sense of luxury not easily found as close to the heart of Key West as Eisenhower's Retreat! If luxury living, central location, and accessibility to your boat are what you're looking for, then you will not be disappointed.

What makes this house unique

One of only a few homes with this much space, heated pool, located in Old Town and WITH boat dockage! One of a kind.

Quiet Retreat that is near everything!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Eisenhower house #1 and had a fabulous time! 15-20 minute walk to Mallory Square, the beach, or Duval street. We had 10 people in our party and we had plenty of room for everyone. We will be back!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house and grounds were very good. We had 7 adults and 3 children and the house felt larger then we expected. Well appointed. The kitchen was very well equipped with waffle maker, blenders, etc. Plenty of paper towels, linens, and items of that nature.

While the pool is small the kids spent countless hours in it. We had a boat for fishing and the dock was 50 yards from our back door. The main part of Key West was within a mile walk.

The property manager checked in on us and was available if we needed anything.

Everything was in very good shape. A very enjoyable time and would rent there again without hesitation.

Exactly what we needed.

  • 4 of 5

The house worked out great for 4 couples! The location was a little further from Duval than I thought but we just rented golf carts and had parking spaces for both. The house had everything we needed and was nicely decorated. The property owner, Javier was very nice about answering all of my questions. It was our first trip to Key West and we hope to come back and visit. We will choose a cooler month to visit than August. It was super HOT! I pray everyone is safe in Key West with Hurricane Irma.

This is a really awesome house, very spacious and clean. The outside area was nicely shaded.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. Had 6 adults and 6 kids with plenty of room inside. The pool was small with 6 kids using it but was nice to have a pool at the house. I wouldn't heat the pool in august though because the water was too warm in my personal opinion. It was so hot outside it would've been more refreshing at a cooler temp. We had a couple snags as the microwave didn't work and the jets in the jacuzzi tub did not work. However, the owner was very nice and apologetic and although he wasn't able to fix it while we were there gave us passes for an excursion in the city. There were 2 parking spaces that were very conveniently located right behind the property. The wifi worked very well as we had 12 people using it and there was very little lag. The TVs and cable listings were exceptional. I would highly recommend this house.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Great property, good location. Not too far from town, but far enough if you just want to relax. This was the perfect venue for our family reunion, plenty of room, nice accommodations. Pool was always clean and quite refreshing. Javier took great care of us and promptly responded every time I messaged him. His recommendations for transportation, restaurants, and activities were top notch. I would definitely recommend staying here and would come back to the same place.! Only one thing, we could never get the microwave to work and the cooktop was a bit difficult. Thanks for making my husband's surprise party so memorable!
