About the property

2BR/3BA Delightful conch cottage w/ private pool on quiet lane in Old Town

This precious 2 bedroom cottage with its coral front door will charm you from the moment you walk in the front gate. The front porch is private, for some quiet time reading a book. Inside, you'll see that 'Puerta Coralina' reflects the simpler side of tropical living but with some useful updates.


The living room is furnished with old-fashioned, comfortable wicker furniture, but also has a modern large flat screen 'Smart' TV. The sofa folds out to a queen bed for extra guests, and there is a full bathroom on the main level. The open plan and high ceilings provide a sense of airiness. The kitchen is simple, but has everything you'll need to prepare a great meal. There's a pass-through window from the kitchen to the back deck, which has its own dining set and is like a little world all its own.


The back deck has a plunge pool with waterfall that is the perfect destination after a long day of shopping in Old Town. It's a very private setting, so you won't be disturbed while soaking your cares away. There's even an outdoor shower for a quick rinse after the pool or beach. The outdoor dining set seats 4+ beside the large propane BBQ grill for a poolside meal.


Upstairs, there are two bedrooms: the first master suite has a King sized bed, flat screen TV, overhead ceiling fan. The second bedroom has a Queen bed, overhead fan and flat screen TV. Each bedroom has its own in-room A/C unit (in addition to the central air system of the house) to better control the comfort of each guest. Each room also features an en-suite bathroom with a roomy shower. The master bedroom features a spacious deck with chaises and a table and chairs. Very private, with plenty of sun.


Central Heat and AC, Pool with available Pool Heat and Waterfall, Washer/Dryer, 50' Flat Screen TV in living room, 26' Flat Screen TV's in bedrooms, Cable TV throughout, Microwave, Blender, Toaster, Full Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Daily or weekly housekeeping provided upon request. Wireless high-speed Internet access throughout the property. This property will accommodate up to 6 adults.

Awesome house- great kitchen, deck and pool, and decor. Everything is better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

This was a great choice and great value located in the middle of Key West. Walking distance to middle of Duval St. The house came stocked with basics, making shopping much easier. Cannot say enough about the agency-- stocked the fridge with treats for our arrival. We had the AC malfunction and after a quick call, they got it working again within an hour. The downstairs and outside areas were great communal space.

The only word of caution would be how many can comfortably sleep in the house. It has a king bed, queen bed, and pullout coach mattress that leaves much to be desired. Great for two couples, maybe five people to share.

A slice of paradise in Key West

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were met by the most wonderful Property Manager, Amanda. she not only made our late night reservation for us at a wonderful restaurant around the corner called 7 Fish, but she made sure we were well equipped with groceries i.e. eggs, muffins, key lime pie, guava pastries, melons, nuts, just to mention a few items. The house was terrific, spacious, clean, well maintained, very cute, very comfortable and located in a great area. Once we parked the truck we never moved it, we rented bicycles and rode them all over. We were able to bike to the marina where we went parasailing, jet skiing, and deep sea fishing. My wife and two daughter age 15 and 16 had a wonderful and very memorable time. we definitely will use Last Key Realty and Amanda again!

The home was wonderful-fully equipped, close enough to everything but quiet and secluded.

  • 5 of 5

Amanda really went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. She helped arrange bike rentals, fishing charters and other excursions that made everything go very smoothly. The pool was an added bonus. The house really maximizes the space and was very comfortable and clean. We will definitely return!

Comfy and well appointed as well as a perfect location to park the car once and walk anywhere.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better location or a more well appointed place to stay. Upon arrival the house was very clean and as neat as a pin. The three bathrooms were perfect for our group of five and the plunge pool was a nice relief after a day of walking the island. This house is much roomier than how it is depicted in the photographs. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware for making breakfast or even dinner. The electric grill out on the patio was a nice surprise that we were able to use also. With cable and secure Wi-Fi throughout the house we were able to stay connected with family and friends and post our travel adventure pics to our Facebook pages. Within a short walk of a few blocks we found grocery and convenience stores for items we wanted to stock the fridge with. Within that 3 to 4 block radius we found a fresh fish market, several eateries and an excellent French bakery that I highly recommend for their croissants and baguettes. Our stay was over the New Year's weekend and I want to commend Amanda Anderson of Last Key Realty for the extra attention to detail that she provided for our stay. She had a goody bag full of New Year's party favors, hats, noisemakers and balloons for our celebration. But the surprises did not end there, she had 2 bottles of celebratory champagne and a fresh delicious Key Lime Pie for us in the fridge. Amanda really did go above and beyond our expectations. It is this attention to detail and the great property that make us want to return again and again to Key West. Thank you so much from all of us for making this our best vacation holiday ever. Anyone considering taking a house for a week would not be disappointed by this lovely property. For one you're getting much more space than you would at a hotel or guesthouse. Our most memorable times were having coffee or drinks on the front or back porches. And the upper deck is great for catching some sun. Due to it's central location it's an easy 10 to 15 minute walk to Duval street or to the north or south end. Thank you again for such a great vacation!

Big house, great location.

  • 4 of 5

This was a really nice, large house in a great location. There are 2 good sized bedrooms and 3 full baths so this would easily work for 2-3 couples. The house also has a nice, stocked kitchen and a small pool in the back which was great. Amanda met us at the property to check us in and check us out which was a really nice touch. We also loved the location, right next to the cemetery and accessible to everything. The only complaint we have is that when we showed up, there was a chemical smell coming from one of the bedrooms from the floor being redone and then what seemed like 10 plug in air fresheners added to mask the smell I'm assuming. Both of us have sinus problems and allergies so we immediately had to close off the bedroom with the smelly floor and find/remove all the plug in air fresheners, and open the doors to clear the air. This could have been a problem if there were two couples and we needed the second bedroom but luckily we didn't. We also had a small problem with the washing machine but Amanda was very receptive and helpful even though it happened on Thanksgiving day. All in all, a great property that we would definitely return to!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are happy to hear you enjoyed your time at Puerta Coralina over Thanksgiving. We were very pleased to find out that the small issue with the washing machine was attended to and resolved even on Thanksgiving day. What we were not happy to hear was that you were experiencing an issue with your allergies and sinuses due to the cleanup of the very recently replaced upstairs flooring in the second bedroom, and we were not made aware in order to resolve the issue for you. Just like with the washer, we would have bent over backwards to find a solution that alleviated the issue for you had we been aware that you were having to close off the bedroom at that point. It certainly is lucky you did not "need" the bedroom during your stay, but our guests should never find themselves unable to enjoy their entire home as reserved. Please contact us directly so we may discuss a return visit where we can hopefully make up for the inconvenience you experienced after the replacement of the floors. Any future guests should be aware this is not an ongoing issue in this home, and would simply have been a result of work completed shortly before this guests' arrival. Any future guests are encouraged to notify our team as soon as an issue arises so we may resolve it while you are in residence, rather than after your stay.
