A Private Tropical Paradise... is the feeling you get when you enter the pavilion of this extraordinary award winning villa just a half block off Duval St. in Old Town Key West. I first visited this private home when it was featured on the prestigious Garden Home Tour of Key West which opens a few select private homes to the public. A total renovation created a stunning tropical water pavilion by bridging two buildings with a pool, spacious deck and lushly landscaped garden. The pool is made both mysterious and fantasy-like with a beautiful istening stones and a giant frangipani tree which drapes the pool. Just a few blocks from Mallory Square, steps from grocery shopping, excellent restaurants, popular clubs, the Historic Seaport, and tropical shops makes this one of the most requested and convenient accommodations in Key West. We are so pleased to offer it as one of the more unique properties available in Old Town.
The Pavilion Villa vacation rental home was designed to create luxurious privacy by combining an indoor and outdoor multi-level living space. Enter the main cottage from the street side. Here you find a 1.5 story dwelling which houses the living room, kitchen, three bedrooms, and a full bath with a beautifully tiled indoor/outdoor shower room. This cottage has many added features which include a large roof top deck which adjoins the second floor bedroom and overlooks the pool. Down stairs a bay-sun room has a soothing fountain which adjoins a sitting area near the living room. French doors link the living room area to the pool and deck area which draw you to the second cottage which is in the back.
Once on the deck pavilion, it is almost impossible to proceed to the back cottage without stopping to dip your toe in the pool, and take in the beauty of the garden. The private spacious deck has plenty of room for sunning and lounging. A second bathroom in the outdoor garden area makes indoor/outdoor living even more convenient.
Walk the deck past the pool to reach the second 2 story cottage of this paradise pavilion. The second cottage has 2 full stories with the first floor set up as a sleeping and lounging area. There is also a kitchenette for convenience. The second floor has master bedroom and bathroom, and a spacious balcony which overlooks the pool and looks back at the first cottage.
The design of the Pavilion Villa Key West vacation rental makes it ideal for family groups or groups of friends. The pavilion-style plan provides two private buildings which are adjoined with a spacious outdoor living room for all to gather. It should be considered as an ideal location for a wedding party to reside, but not to stage the wedding. At the same time, the intimacy created by the garden pool pavilion make this unique home a wonderful location for a couple or a smaller group who want privacy and room to spread out.
This home is offered as an exclusive vacation rental in the most requested location in Key West. The property will not tolerate smoking inside. Only well behaved children are welcome. This property is not child-proof. We do not accept guests less than 25 years of age unless accompanied by a family group or guardian.
If you love this villa but need to sleep more people, you can rent it with the two bedroom cottage Down Island Digs. You can combine a rental of both prperties and sleep up to 12 by renting the Island Rendezvous vacation compound
