Key West Luxury Home
Vacation Rental DescriptionIn Key West's Historic Seaport District, where most houses and some trees date back nearly 100 years, it's easy and feels natural to slow down and to 'step back in time'. The intrigue of authentic Key West's Victorian architecture is at once intriguing, powerful and alluring. Visitors who tour the streets near the Key West Historic Seaport District are awed by the poignant beauty of the remarkable turn-of-the-19th-century neighborhoods that inspire an appreciation of our rich island history. In fact, many are so inspired they find their way back to Key West to stay awhile in one of these gracious homes.
For just a minute I want you to take a deep breath and let yourself imagine . . . an extraordinarily luxurious 7 bedroom 9 bathroom 6 kitchen historic 'Private Inn Residence' in the perfect Old Town Key West Seaport location, with all the up-scale amenities that you can possibly want in one large accommodation, . . . and that you can rent the entire place just for you! So if this sounds appealing and you're looking for the perfect Key West rental to enjoy as your own private island retreat this just may be the ideal island property for you! Here you can escape the hectic daily grind, experience laid- back island life for awhile and renew your spirit with family and loved ones.
Originally built in the late 19th century as a single-family estate home this romantic centurion has been meticulously restored on the outside and remarkably transformed on the inside to become an exclusive 'Private Inn Residence'. This property now stands as a creative fusion of classical romantic architecture with an artistic twist of Zen offering six private luxury suites set to meet the most modern luxury standards. The new up-scale interior renovation is both progressive and refreshing and provides a perfect opportunity to rent an entire private inn offering 6 separate spacious suites designed for ultimate privacy.
Inside the authentic charm of this historic Key West Victorian beauty, the interior designer artistically introduced distinctive modern themes such as chic jewel tone-glass tiles, high-end modern mat finish stainless steel appliances, glistening granite and marble counters, designer fixtures, iron spiral staircases, sky lights, and ambient lighting. Modern earth-tone island furnishings and botanical art are utilized throughout each of the six suites to create a dramatic calming effect that fuses beautifully with the original traditional architectural design elements of Caribbean mahogany floors,12 foot high ceilings, French doors and windows, and expansive covered gingerbread front porches with beautiful Old Town neighborhood views.
INTERIOR LAYOUT: Downstairs the property offers 3 one-bedroom suites. Upstairs you'll find 2 one-bedroom suites and 1 two-bedroom suite. The thoughtfully renewed floor plan provides an excellent set-up for groups that want to be together in the same location . . . and yet require maximum privacy. Our detailed description below will illustrate for you the configuration of the bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms within each separate suite so you can visualize how the property functions as six separate luxury suites that can be ideally utilized as one accommodation.
I will describe the lay-out of the interior floor by floor and suite by suite, beginning from the downstairs front porch suite, around to the downstairs back pool-side suites, and then we'll work our way to the upstairs front porch suites, and finally the upstairs back poolside suites.
