Without a doubt, one of the rarest private Key West vacation cottages available. Situated in one of the most requested locations in Old Town Key West, this luxury renovated turn-of-the-century Vintage Luxury Cottage vacation rental is hidden just off upper Duval Street in Old Town. Enter the gate from your private off-street parking place to a stunning large brick courtyard with private heated swimming pool.
This elegant one bedroom cottage is completely renovated with style and flare. The interior is completely new. The living room has open beam ceilings and the cottage is decorated and appointed throughout with casual elegance. All rooms are tiled with beautiful muted tile. The stylized bathroom offers a double size shower, designer fixtures, and an elegant bowl vanity. The kitchen is a cooks dream -- all new stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and even a professional wine cooler under the counter!! Very handy since you are right next to "Grand Vin" - a high end wine tasting shop.
From the living room, French doors open to a large porch with marble top table that will seat six. The porch even sports tailored privacy curtains that can be pulled at the guest's discretion. From the porch step onto the beautiful antique brick courtyard which has a captivating view of the pool. For our plant loving guests, courtyard sports a variety of lovely tropical flowers and trees. Indeed, you will probably spend most of your time pool side. Guests are also invited to use the pool and deck area to entertain small groups who may wish to visit them.
The general graceful design and layout of the Vintage Luxury Cottage lends itself perfectly for versatile use. It is ideal for honeymoon or anniversary couple, a single who wants a private luxury retreat that is close to everything or a group of four friends or family members that want privacy just steps away from Duval Street convenience.
The cottage has a king size bed in the bedroom and a Parisian style "fainting couch" for lounging. The living room has two loveseat sleeper sofas that make into twin beds for additional sleeping.
