Vacation Rental Description
Few places exist where you can ride the fine line separating a secluded tranquil luxury villa, and the Heart of Old Town Key West.Extraordinarily secluded and completely hidden from view on a sleepy artist's lane, this is a special slice of Key West you would never find on your own. While most of the colorful cottages along this charming Old Town lane face right up to the curb, commanding immediate attention, the gated entrance to this authentic Caribbean resort -style property is set back off the lane and masterfully camouflaged.
Grounds: From the moment you step inside the property gate you'll feel as though you've entered 'a world all your own.' All human senses are immediately redirected to a different perception and the winding down to island-time begins. First the meandering brick path, lined with mature tropical landscaping, comes to view and leads through an impressive manicured garden. Visuals become simultaneously dramatic and tranquil with the spacious free-form black bottom pool that possesses the prettiest elements of a peaceful natural lagoon. Next you are treated to the serene sound of a trickling waterfall that gently spills to the pool. Walk past the lagoon, and the brick pathway widens way out to become an open spacious courtyard where you enjoy more tropical trees and flowers which, depending on the time of year, produce a sensual floral fragrance. At this point the stresses of everyday life seem to gently float away and you know you're in your own little piece of paradise.
Your focus now naturally turns to the house itself which displays the most authentic and romantic elements of Key West's historic architecture while simultaneously offering all of the most tranquil attributes of a traditional Caribbean resort-style villa. In order to enlarge the house and create the privacy he envisioned, the owner began by purchasing and annexing the next door property thereby lending ample room for the spacious garden and new lagoon swimming pool. A tall fence built across the front of the property served to camouflage the house and also created off-street parking for two cars. The next task was to repair and then re-define the original "shot-gun" cottage so as to incorporate it into the visualization designs of a spacious villa.
Private Guest Cottage: As we complete our tour of this phenomenal villa we finally arrive to the private free-standing Caribbean design guest cottage. This building is situated just within a few feet of the living room, close but completely separate. This cottage serves as the fourth bedroom to the villa. It has a king size bed and offers the most privacy of all. The front entrance to the private guest cottage is turned to face the brick courtyard so the lagoon pool is always in view and just steps away. Ceilings are vaulted up to meet the hip-roof line to optimize air flow. When the French doors are opened the tropical breezes easily flow through to maximize open-air island living. The cottage has its own private covered sitting porch that mirrors the style of the next door living room porch described above. Consistent with the rest of the home the beautiful furnishings for this free-standing cottage are soft, elegant, and sophisticated and the walls are decorated with original art work. A private spacious en-suite bathroom is set to the left side of the cottage as you face the front.
The elegance and design of this home make it ideal for sophisticated individuals with discerning tastes and is best suited for a family or executive group looking for the very finest Key West has to offer in a truly authentic home with 5-Star Quality amenities. It should never be considered as an option for travelers looking to stage a party or any kind of event.
