A Tropical Tradition (Gallup Arms) ~ Weekly Rental

3BR 2.5BA ~ Weekly Rental
Sleeps 6

Nestled in one of Key West's original gated "mini-compounds," the Tropical Tradition vacation rental is a spacious 1990's three-story Key West town home providing an island living experience in a traditional tropical style - both inside and out. A lush tropical garden complete with large 40' X 16' swimming pool is the main focus of this unique island setting, and this traditional Key West town-home home is situated at the "pool-side" of the garden.

The main entrance to this home leads from the front porch to the living room / dining and open U-shaped kitchen which makes meal preparation and entertaining relaxed and fun. French doors and multiple sets of sash windows fill the room with light and high ceilings provide a spacious feeling. Casual Florida style furnishings blend nicely with the light hard wood floors. The first floor also offers the convenience of a powder room (sink and commode) and a door beneath the stairwell conveniently hides the washer / dryer. A traditional banister wooden staircase leads from the living room to the second floor where you find one bedroom with a queen size  bed, a full bathroom, and a sitting room that opens to a covered porch through French doors. The porch has a beautiful down-look view of the swimming pool and garden. The staircase continues from the sitting room to the third floor which provides two more bedrooms and a full bathroom.

The floor plan on the third level has the bedrooms on opposite sides with a shared full bath in between. One bedroom offers a queen size bed and the other has 2 twin beds. The second level has one bedroom offering a queen size bed, and opposite the bedroom is a den with balcony overlooking the pool. All bedrooms have nice views of either the pool or a garden area below. Bedroom furnishings carry the traditional Florida tropical wicker and bent bamboo theme established on the first floor. This property is offered as an exclusive vacation rental in Old Town Key West.

The property will not tolerate smoking inside. The property is located in a private residential compound and is definitely not suitable for staging loud parties.

From start to finish, VHKW was exceptional. Our check-in was easy and smooth and so was our check-out. We left a few items behind and the cleaning crew was kind enough to search the home a second time to locate the items. Highly recommend this team!

It was great

Feb 21, 2019,
We loved our place! We even extended our stay by a day with no problem. Very nice working with the staff. Will return!

Nov 20, 2018,
We lived both units! They were exactly what we needed. The units were clean and well appointed. It was a.m ray walk to downtown. Add in the pool and the private feel of the garden, the porches, and PARKING! I wouldn't hesitate to rent from you again. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Loved it everyone enjoyed each building Pool was great

Jun 18, 2018,
Had a great time ,great area away from the crowds but still walking distance to duval street. Local grocery store and café just around the corner. Wonderful bedding and really enjoyed sitting out on the balcony in the evening.

Apr 19, 2018,
Perfect for our family of 5! Plenty of space, well stocked kitchen, nice pool area.

Apr 17, 2018,
The location of this home was very convenient to bars, restaurants and beaches. We were so pleased with the cleanliness of the home as well as the use of the private pool. We were looking to come back for New Year's, but unfortunately there are very few properties left. However, we hope to return in the future!

Mar 25, 2018,
We stayed at a 1310 Catherine st property. It was exactly as advertised. We had a couple of minor mechanical problems which were promply taken care of. Without question , we received everything we paid for. I would recommend vacation homes of key west to anyone! Thanks again.

Mar 22, 2018,
We had a great time! Accommodations were perfect for large extended family vacation.

Feb 19, 2018,
I was pleasantly surprised. Condo was very well equipped, spacious, 2 1/2 baths. A bit far from town but if you rent a bike, which you should anyway, it is just fine. My only wish would be for the pool to be heated a few degrees. Other than that, not one negative thing to say! Definitely would stay there again.

Jul 26, 2017,
We had a great time! The house is comfortable and had plenty of room for 6 adults! The outdoor pool courtyard was amazing! We spent much of our time in the pool, or at the outside table playing games. Easy to walk anywhere on the island! We will be back!

May 01, 2017,
My three girls and I spent a week. The home was conveniently located mid island, clean, had absolutely everything we needed and provided us with some great relaxation time. We were very happy with the home and would most definitely rent it again. Thank you!

Apr 24, 2017,
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The homes were comfortable and more than expected. The pool area was fantastic. Loved every minute.

Feb 24, 2017,
Excellent house for our family get away. We loved the set-up and location so expect To be back in the fall. Key West Rules!!!!!

Feb 15, 2017,
Very welcoming home away from home. Nicely appointed. Comfy beds and relaxing front porch.

Jan 11, 2017,
the condo was well maintained and in a great location. We enjoyed our stay.

Jan 05, 2017,
Our rental couldn't have been better for our mob of 19. Each family had its own space but still were so close to everyone else. The main house served for cooking for a bunch while the other units were good for individual family snacks. We could even fit 15 bikes in the courtyard with plenty of room to spare for kids to play. WONDERFUL FOR FAMILIES!!! Would love to have a repeat!
