Property Description

Classic Key West style defines this two-story Bahamian Colonial tucked away on Rose Lane, which runs only one block in its entirety, from Simonton to Duval. Rose Treehouse is a charming King bed, one-full-bath studio that occupies the whole second floor with balconies off both the front and the rear of the studio. The building right next door on Simonton, Casa Antigua, was Hemingway's first island residence, where in 1928 he wrote Farewell to Arms. Going the other direction, the lane intersects with world-famous Duval Street, the island's main artery for entertainment. Location alone would make this studio the perfect place to anchor your vacation, but once inside you'll find even more reason to love this residence.

Despite the proximity to the hubbub of Duval, Rose Treehouse is quiet and private. As one guest put it, "One block to Duval, but yet we didn't hear any of the noise or craziness when we were inside or out on the balcony. This is a special little place."

The outside and inside are constructed of classic Dade County Pine. The stairway to the second level brings you up to open-beam ceilings, highly polished hardwood floors, and a wall of glass-paneled doors that opens out to a spacious covered balcony. Picture yourself sitting out here to enjoy the magical weather Key West is so famous for. It's the perfect spot to relax or to enjoy a meal or just socialize around the table and chairs as the sun shifts positions in the water blue sky. As is typical in island architecture, the laundry closet with a stackable washer/dryer unit is accessible from the balcony. Peek over the balcony to view a garden with colorful plantings.

Back inside, the living area occupies an open floor plan with tropical ceiling fans above and plenty of natural light from windows and the glass doors. Should you want to eat inside, you can use the café table and chairs next to the delightful country kitchen. The kitchen itself is highlighted with blond cabinets and a tin tile backsplash in an embossed diamond and floral coin design. Everything needed for meal preparation is here: counter space, stove, convection microwave, pots and pans. Although with over 200 restaurants in town, you may opt for eating out most of the time. It's one of the many delights of the island to have so many choices.

Next to the kitchen, two natural rattan armchairs with plump pillows are situated for comfortable TV viewing. And of course there's wireless high-speed Internet, cable, a DVD player, and air conditioning augmented by ceiling fans. Next is the sleeping area that invites you with its King bed embellished with a one-of-a-kind, antique headboard that extends almost to the ceiling. A door from the sleeping area leads onto the front balcony, also covered and convenient for sitting outside, maybe with your morning coffee. This balcony even has chairs, a table, a lamp, and ceiling fans that make it another room in good weather. Another door opens onto this balcony from the tiled full bath that features a linen closet and drawers.

After you've settled in at Rose Treehouse, have unpacked and put on your flip-flops, you're ready to explore Duval and beyond. Leave your car in the off-street parking provided because you can reach everything by foot or bicycle. Duval runs the fourteen-block width of the island from the Gulf of Mexico to a pier jutting out into the wide Atlantic Ocean. This street offers much of what the island is famous and infamous for: tours, beaches, museums, water sports, shopping, bars, restaurants (many with open-air seating, some right on the water). Art and culture are a big part of Key West as well, with many art galleries, music venues, playhouses, and movie theaters.

After sightseeing and lunch, maybe you'll want to pop back to Rose Treehouse for a cooling dip in the shared pool next door at Rose Villas and afterward a siesta on one of the Treehouse balconies. Before you doze off, set your alarm close to the sunset hour. For sure you'll want to be at Mallory Square to applaud as the sun sinks over the Gulf and outer islands. Once in a while you'll be lucky enough to glimpse a brilliant green flash at the exact moment the orange ball of the sun disappears. Hang around for the after-party as artists and street performers entertain the crowd and enact the Conch Republic's motto: One Human Family. Or if you'd rather experience twilight at sea, take a cruise aboard one of the harbor's tall ships, where you can sip spirits and munch hors d'oeuvres as your vessel carries you into sunsets like you've never seen before. A good guidebook will present you with more entertainment opportunities that you can possibly enjoy in one visit.

We loved the location of the house and we had our own parking spot. It was a very short walk to the Marina and many of other restaurants. The space is perfect for a couple and has a coffee pot and normal kitchen amenities.

Renting through Historic Hideaways' was seamless. They were quick to answer questions; available and responsive to any concerns. The rental was clean and exactly as described and pictured on their site. The location was perfect- just a few steps from Duval Street but still quiet and private. The unit was well stocked with towels, TP, hand soap even had dish soap and laundry detergent. We would definitely recommend Historic Hideaways to anyone looking for a rental in KW.

We’ve used Historic Hideaways in the past and we’re glad we checked out their listings. We wanted a property that would give us easy access to Key West and privacy from crowds at the same time. We got both with this rental. 1 block to Duval yet quiet at night. Our unit had access to a pool which was lovely and contactless check-in/checkout. We also used HH’s concierge services and were very happy with the quality of the excursions and services they recommended and booked for us.

This apartment is in the perfect location. You can sit on the front porch and listen to the live music on Duval without being in the crowds. Within walking distance to everything. Mallory Square, Duval Street, Marinas, even SMP is only a 20 minute or so walk away. The back porch was great for sitting on each breakfast. Had everything we needed. Bonus having a parking space and washer and dryer. We would definitely stay here again!
We have always enjoyed staying here.

The location of the Treehouse is excellent for being close to Duval St. The service from Historic Hideaway was excellent.

Friendly authentic stay, charming people, charming apartment. Quiet lane with quick walking access to everything plus a parking space directly in front of the house. Everything worked and the bed was a dream with great bed linen and so comfortable and roomy. Kitchen was a bit mean with glassware etc. Loved watching nothing but blue sky and greenery with the occasional passerby from the first floor veranda. Fell in love with Key West in part due to our homely and spacious studio apartment. Not for people who like super modern air conditioned prison-like modernity but just to our taste. Really enjoyed the drag show at a local boutique hotel with espresso martinis and dinner, Hemingway's house, the butterfly sanctuary and the evening ghost bus tour. We were surprised there was so much to do in an around Key West . Went to the turtle hospital and sanctuary in Marathon around 50 miles away. This also showed us that Key West was the best location to stay in. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Location was great. Quiet street. Lovely accommodations - great updated kitchen area and still very charming with the old original French doors and huge window. If you dont like morning light, an eye mask is a must. Small shower but water pressure was great. No facial tissue provided and only two small rolls of toilet tissue. A love seat would have been much more comfortable than two rattan chairs to watch TV.

This second floor walk-up is less than a block from Duval, but you can't hear it all that much. Luckily, Rose Lane is not used too much for people walking back from a night out. The unit has all that you need. You can cook meals here on the stove and even wash clothes. The swimming pool next door is very nice. The place is very private and the two window air conditioners do a great job. There is both a front porch and a back deck. French doors and a huge back end window over the doors let in the morning sun. We enjoyed it.
Unique, Comfortable, Quiet, and just off of Duval

The location was just perfect, so close to Sloppy Joes one way, and the docks the other way. No need for a car, bike, or scooter. You can walk everywhere. The place is so comfortable. The wall of windows/doors to the back balcony is so cool. Also have the front balcony. Pool access is next door. Bed is great. Just so glad I found this place. It served every need we had for our stay.

Location is great. 1 block to Duval, 2 blocks to Sloppy Joes, 3 blocks to the docks. Home was comfortable and unique. I liked the wall of windows. Only odd thing is that youre in an alley with a big and ugly white building next door, but it really doesnt matter

We were going to be a little past 5 getting to Key West and (rental agent) from Historic Hideaways was very accommodating and stayed later to ensure we got the keys to our rental. Our rental was exactly as described and we would say even better then the description actually! The kitchen had everything we needed for our stay, the rental was clean and cool, the bed was comfy and there was laundry! The porches were perfect and so was the pool over at Rose Villas. The location was perfect! We spent the majority of our time on Duval Street and it was amazing being a minute away and being able to come and go easily between Duval street and the rental! One of the biggest and best things about the rental was the parking spot right out front! That is clutch in Key West! Even though we were close to Duval Street we couldnt hear a peep at night. We cant say enough good things about the rental and Key West and when we come back I will be renting the Rose Treehouse! Thank you!
Super cute and awesome location!

My cousin and I stayed here for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it! The space was clean, cool, the bed was comfy and it had everything we needed! We loved the fact that we were so close to Duval street and that it came with a parking spot (that is huge in Key West)!!! We used the pool over at Rose Villas and that was awesome too! Despite the proximity to Duval Street we didnt hear anything and loved hanging out on the back porch or over at the pool! We will be staying again!

We had a great time in key west staying in the Rose Tree house. The house was located in a great area close to duval and the seaport. Very quiet location but east to get to everything. We were pleased with how close to Duval we were and how quiet it was. The studio apartment was very clean and had nice furnishings. The bed was very comfortable and it seems as though the appliances and furniture is new or very recently updated and clean. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the morning with our coffee and having happy hour on the back porch. It was very nice to have a kitchen for meals and to heat up left overs. The only negative to the unit is the air conditioners are not efficient or strong enough to cool the whole unit on a warmer day but at night they are ok. We cannot wait to get back to Key West and would definitely stay in the Rose Treehouse again.
We enjoyed our stay in Key West!

Very cute second floor unit. Lots of light. Great covered outdoor space on the back deck. Good location in regards to Duval. Can hear some of the noise of Duval Street at night, but its not overly annoying when trying to sleep. The property is located down a very small side street/alleyway which made me a little uncomfortable walking back alone at night. In order to use the available pool (next door) you have to go out the front door and around through the side gate. We opted not to bother.

We absolutely loved this well-appointed studio home during our long weekend! We couldn't spend enough time out on the private deck and we thoroughly enjoyed the pool. The kitchen was very handy. Probably what we loved the most was the convenience of how incredibly close we were to Duval Street and, despite it being Fantasy Fest, we could not hear the hub bub of the streets!

The rental was immaculate and well appointed. Loved the big windows and the porches. We are anti-air conditioning because we live in Michigan where it is always cold and we have to have house closed up, so we opened everything up and enjoyed the Florida breeze. Owners live below and were extremely friendly and always willing to chat! Key West is our happy place, and Rose Lane Treehouse did not disappoint!

Love the location down a quiet street only a block from Duval, and still quiet. Very well appointed upper unit with two decks ( front and back ) and well furnished. Though we did not use the pool, it would be a nice amenity with about a 100 foot walk next door. Owners lived downstairs and were very courteous and helpful. We made them aware of a small leak in the shower and a ripped screen. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I agreed that this vacation to Key West was perfect in every way! Rose Tree house was beautiful inside and out! Loved all the old wood, the window doors to back porch were lovely, front porch was our favorite spot to sit and drink a few cold beers in the afternoon, towels and sheets were plentiful and nice, all furnishings were comfortable, and little kitchen was well equipped and perfect for meal making for two.I have to admit we ate out a lot, how can you not ! So much to choose from! I could go on and on but I won't. I am telling friends and acquaintance about Historic Hideaways and Key West, my gift to you for a fantastic vacation!

We were very intrigued by the rental. The picture shows an adorable historic condo - which it is truly unique and adorable. Not stair friendly if you have issues - 18 steps to the top floor. Great breezes came through as there are front and back balconies - but NO screens on the back porch. There are laundry facilities which were greatly appreciated. We stayed for 4 nights in Jan 2017 from the 11th thru the 15th. We were looking for something close to Old Town and Duval for walking. This was a great location for both. Unfortunately there were just a few things that needed tweaking - some could be preferential - but these were just some of the things I noticed that need help: The mattress sits on a bunky board - not a box spring - It was hard to sleep with my arthritis. It also sits about 8" too high off the ground and hard to get into - no table on one side - it could be better if just a Queen size regular bed that is softer installed. The floors appeared clean - but just vacuumed and swept - my feet were filthy. They need to use a mop - especially for the first day on the porches - better cleaning. No Kleenex - The advertisement states " far enough away from the Din of Duval" - this is not the case. The bar at the end of the street happens to be "Fat Tuesday and they get louder as the night goes on with loud hip hop music. There was a shared pool situation - but you use the neighboring twin Rose Villas pool - they were full with their own guests and there was no room for us to share. I would suggest better cleaning - softer bed - screens on the french doors.
This is a charming rental in an ideal location.

This is a charming rental in an ideal location. Located close enough to Duval Street (near Hard Rock) but far enough that you don't hear noise. Walking distance to anything you want to see or do. They have thought about almost everything you would need. The bed was comfortable. The air conditioning worked perfect. There is even a washer and dryer. We would definitely consider booking here again.

We stayed for long weekend in October and was great! Had everything you found need and was so close to Duval Street and right in the heart of the action! They helped us with booking bikes and a sunset cruise as well! Home is small but quaint and a perfect place to cone back to after the beach or being down on Duval Street. Having shared pool was great as well! Will stay again!
