Property Description

This impeccably renovated property makes the perfect vacation getaway. At first glance, you can confirm its aesthetic appeal and secluded location half a block from Key West's celebrated Duval Street. If two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, an outstanding pool and deck area, and dedicated parking meet your needs, you can't do better anywhere on the island.

Dubbed "Bahamian Rhapsody" for its location on a tree-lined lane in the historic district, this two-story home has been impeccably redone. It is set back from the lane and fronted by a bricked patio with off-street parking. The coral exterior is framed by lush tropical foliage in varying shades of green. Three stairs lead onto a front porch ready with chairs. Above is the balcony for the second floor, which is also appointed with outdoor seating.

The front door opens into a short hallway with several closets for storing stuff you might want to grab on your way out to enjoy what Key West has to offer-beach paraphernalia, shopping totes, sun hats, or whatever. Above a small yellow cabinet hangs a hand-painted art sign that offers this home's credo: "Because our days here are filled with so much love and laughter…this will always be a magical place." Perfectly located in the same hall is a guest half-bath.

From here, the great room provides a wide sight line straight through to the patio and private pool beyond. The kitchen is spacious and well-lit, with three windows and a lighted ceiling fan. This area boasts everything you need for food preparation, whether it be reheating leftovers from one of Key West's fine dining establishments or preparing a five-course meal from scratch. High-end stainless appliances are arranged for utility and convenience. Honey-colored hardwood cabinetry above and below makes it easy to keep items like dishes and pots out of your way when not in use. The far end of the spacious granite counter curves to create a convenient breakfast bar with two stools.

Next to the kitchen is the dining area with comfortable seating for six. The table makes the perfect place for a meal, playing cards, or a board game. Next is the living-room area, which works perfectly for conversation, reading, or watching sports or movies on the large flatscreen TV. You might even find yourself catching a quick catnap on the comfy couch or taking a selfie of yourself holding the pillow that says, "I wasn't born in Key West, but I got here as soon as I could." AC, WiFi, cable, stereo, and a DVD player are all at your fingertips. But the best part about the living area is its close-up view of the outstanding pool and deck oasis behind the house, where sea breezes ruffle the palms and sunshine sparkles over the pool's surface.

The back deck's first level is covered and features Adirondack chair and chaise lounge seating. Take your choice. You could sit here even in a cloudburst to enjoy the professional landscaping that rings the property with beauty and privacy. The gas barbeque is here, too, as is a table with four chairs should you decide to grill some locally caught fish and serve it alfresco with a cold beverage.

The pool is the property's pièce de résistance. It's big by Key West standards. A waterfall on one side adds visual interest and the soothing sound of water cascading into the temperature-controlled pool. Whether you want to look or dangle your feet or float or get serious about swimming, the pool is ready 24/7. After your pool excursion, rinse off in the conveniently located and delightful outside shower.

Back in the house and up one flight of stairs, you'll find the bedrooms. To the left is an inviting queen bedroom with adjacent full bath. The room not only has windows to let the sunshine in but also two doors that open onto the front balcony. The beautifully appointed master bedroom with a king bed and en suite full bath is to the right. Doors there open to the balcony above the back deck, but in this case the space also functions as a sunroom or Florida Room. When the shutters are closed, the furnished space is perfect as another separate room. With the shutters swung open, the space is open air with a panoramic view of the deck and pool below. A closet on this same floor provides easy access to the washer and dryer.

Although "Bahamian Rhapsody" is inviting, so is the neighborhood and the whole island beyond. After you unpack, you'll want to walk half a block up to Duval, the world-famous address for many of the wonderful things Key West offers vacationers. A right turn will point you toward the shores of the Atlantic and a left turn toward the Gulf of Mexico. In between are all the things that make the Conch Republic so famous: beaches, tours, museums, shopping, over two hundred restaurants, bars, and the Key West Aquarium where you can pet a shark if you dare. Or maybe you'd prefer to have your picture taken at the Southernmost Point buoy, the most photographed spot on the island.

If the arts interest you, you've come to the right town for music, movies, plays, art galleries, lectures, artists in residence, and more. Don't miss the sunset celebration at Mallory Square or the opportunities for all kinds of water sports along the Historic Seaport boardwalk. Most tourists say you haven't "done" Key West unless you've been to the daily sunset celebration at Mallory Square where tourists and locals alike gather to watch and applaud as the sun sinks into the Gulf of Mexico. Then stick around for the unforgettable party that follows featuring local musicians, street performers, art vendors, jewelry vendors, and food and drink carts.
If this is your first trip to the Conch Republic, a guidebook from Books & Books on Eaton Street or a stop at the Chamber of Commerce Information Center on Greene Street will help make sure you don't miss anything. To know what's going on from day to day, you can check out Historic Hideaways' informative Area Guide/Events page at Other info on the current music scene, movies, plays, gallery openings, and charitable events can be found at (calendar section) or in the print publication Paradise, which is available at various locations around town every Thursday in the Key West Citizen.

Free delivery and setup (over $75) of beer/wine/liquor is available from Kwest Liquors, 705 Duval Street. Historic Hideaways guests receive a discount on pricing. Order in advance and have your vacation home fully stocked upon arrival. Contact the Historic Hideaways office in advance for details.
