Topsail Suite vacation rental is a spacious 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom hideaway that encompasses the entire second floor of our Grand Marshall ~ Key West-Bahama Estate. This charming "loft suite" offers a birds-eye view of beautiful Frances Street in the Key West Historic Seaport District. The open and airy living room has multiple sets of glass French doors that open to the Victorian porches and invite in the sunlight and breezes. Open beamed ceilings that are over 12 feet high and painted bright white give an uplifting feel. Recent renovations include bamboo wooden flooring, travertine marble tile, and granite counter tops.
A "ship's ladder" style staircase leads to the over-sized "stand up" loft bedroom, creating a 3rd floor effect. This carpeted bedroom has two twin beds that can be pushed together to make a king bed. A wooden railing creates an atrium view from which you can look down at the living room area. The galley kitchen, which also opens to the porches, has a pass through window connecting it with the living room.
The second bedroom, which has a queen size bed, and the full bathroom are just off the hall from the living room. The living room adjoins a classic Victorian wrap around porch that loops from the front of the house to the side, to overlook the landscaped deck and large swimming pool below.
Tasteful furnishings are consistent with the other suites in this estate property. Earth tone tropical wicker, bamboo, leather, and wood furnishings create a relaxed and inviting island breeze ambience.
When rented as a separate unit, "Topsail Suite" shares the large swimming pool and sun deck at the Grand Marshall ~Key West-Bahama Estate property.
