Uptwon/Upper Duval House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Location! Style! Elegance! This restored "beach" home is fabulous combination of everything a great vacation property should be. One half block to Duval Street in the historic district, this location can not be beat. The home's history is rich...neighboring the historic Gato Cigar factory which is now restored and used as county offices. Duval Square is directly across the street with three restaurants, shops, and even a salon and convenience store. The best homemade ice cream in Key West is just down the street!

The house is beautifully decorated with warm colors, sophisticated furnishings accented with Cuban and beach themed artwork. There is both a living room and reading area in the front of the house and a indoor/outdoor room to enjoy the tropical lifestyle of Key West. A large farmhouse table sits in the sun room with french windows and doors overlooking the pool directly off the new kitchen with black granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

The master bedroom is beautifully decorated with its black pencil post bed and unique bathroom with spa style vanity. The second bedroom sits to the back of the house and feels like the master suite with french doors to the outdoor sitting area and pool.

The 21-foot long heat optional pool features benches on each side for relaxing (one with jets!) There is an outdoor table and nearby gas grill for outside/open air dining.

Great house/perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Key West at Casa de Cuba. The house was perfect for our family group of 3 couples and was conveniently located for almost everywhere we wanted to go. Walking, biking and an infrequent taxi got us everywhere within a few minutes.

The house is clean, well-equipped and very well maintained. The outdoor area is really enjoyable for swimming, cookouts or relaxing with a good book. I highly recommend it.

Casa de Cuba- Beyond Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 fully enjoyed this gorgeous property for our New Year's week stay. This well appointed, comfortable, professionally and artistically decorated home is fabulous. The property is prettier than the photos- warm, inviting and comfortable. There are plenty of spaces to relax, the covered back patio, luscious landscaped back yard and lovely heated pool create a relaxing, private oasis and retreat to relax and unwind.

Every room in the home is thoughtfully decorated, with all necessary amenities- well stocked, large eat in kitchen, a separate dining room or game area and comfortable living room, large TV, wifi, Central A/C, games, books, beautiful linens, beach towels, and even a supply of sunscreen and sun hats!

The washer and dryer were so handy!

There is also a covered parking space and driveway, and a gated side area, handy to store our bikes. There is no need for a car in key west, as you bike or walk everywhere! This house is half a block North of the quiet end of Duval in Old Town, centrally located to wonderful shopping, beaches, sights and wonderful restaurants. There is a security system and lock box for valuables.

The owner's of the home were professional to work with, communication was easy, response times immediate. The home was clean and so well maintained. We thank Dean kindly for making our stay a fabulous, memorable family vacation.

Fantastic Key West Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! A group of friends stayed together for a week. Enjoyed the house patio and heated pool! It is worth the money for the heat. Only draw back was one bedroom with twin beds is really far from shared bath, otherwise perfect for 6. Thank you Dean for a great stay,

Actually was 10 stars!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a PERFECT vacation property! Very classy decor, every item you might need, and all was in tip top shape! The beds and furniture were very comfortable, the pool was perfect and the A/C was fabulous....... It is HOT! HOT! HOT in July! What impressed me the most, is how responsive Dean was to all my questions during the whole process. responsive his crew was while we were there......we went to use the grill for the first time.....and no gas! A quick call to Paul and within 5 minutes, literally, we were cooking! Fantastic! That says a lot to the care and professionalism of Paul and Dean. We would definitely rent with them again!
