"In-the-know" travelers who return to Key West to vacation love to choose the more elegant area of Upper Duval St. as their favorite area to stay... and this is exactly where you find Amelia's Hideaway vacation rental. This one-of-a-kind vacation villa is perfectly situated just off Upper Duval, and because it is way at the end of an unknown lane it is well hidden from public view. Unless you've stayed in this villa before, there's no-way you'd ever know it's just steps off Upper Duval Street in one of the prettiest parts of Old Town Key West.
The property itself is authentic Key West and unique all-the-way. Pineapple carvings on the fence gracing this property just hint at the island-living charm you find inside. Art work by famous local Caaribbean folk artist David Wegman perched above the gates welcomes you at the entrance. Enter the large wooden blue-green gate off the little private lane and you step into the beautiful courtyard with a crystal clear swimming pool. A statue of the happy Buddha graces the pool side and further welcomes you to your home in Key West and once inside the courtyard you are treated to even more art work; this time canvas art pieces painted by the late Key West artist Sanford Birdsey are uniquely incorporated into the courtyard walls.
The layout of this vacation villa was re-worked in October 2008 by local designers to maximize comfort and sleeping options that now include four full bedrooms that all open to the private courtyard. The room layout features one spacious great-room with open kitchen / living room and a flat screen HD TV. The great-room opens directly to a covered lanai that has a dining table for 'el fresco' dining.
The best way to visualize the layout of this Amelia's Hideaway is to consider each room as it is situated within the courtyard. The house is built as an 'L-Shaped' villa with each room in the house opening to the courtyard, and then 3/4 of the roof of the villa is an expansive Mexican tiled roof-top deck. We begin our descriptive tour as you pass the rooms once inside the courtyard gates.
Room One: Bedroom #1 (yellow room) is a large room and is set as a full suite offering 2 twin beds that can be put together to make a king size bed and a private full bath divided into two - shower room and powder room with commode and sink. There is also a table conveniently placed for your lap-top. This room also offers a full size sofa that can be made into a queen bed.
Room Two: Bedroom #2 (blue room) has a king size bed. This bedroom connects to a full bathroom with bath tub. The design is decidedly unique and very tropical using tumbled marble in an unusual design.
Room Three: Bedroom #3 (rose room) has a Queen bed and offers a writing desk. While this bedroom connects to the same full bathroom as bedroom #2, the door connecting this bedroom to the courtyard is just steps from the 'pool bath' which can be used as a private bath for the 'rose room'.
Room Four: The great-room (living room / kitchen) is the fourth room down the line of the courtyard. The great-room has a beautiful retro-style blue and white kitchen that is open to the cream colored living room area on the other end of the room that provides a sofa and love seat. This combined living area has a flat screen HD TV. The sofa in this great-room is a queen sleeper sofa if you need another bed in a private sleeping area. The main dining area for this room is found in the covered lanai just out the French doors from the kitchen offering a Caribbean 'el fresco' dining.
Room Five: The 'pool bath' is an artistically tiled full bathroom with a blue and white design created by a local Key West artist. This bathroom has entrances from the lanai as well as the 'great room.'
Room Six: The sixth room (green room) is Bedroom #4 and is considered the master suite for this villa as it is situated 'off to itself' offering the most privacy. This bedroom offers a king size bed and a private full bathroom. The bathroom is tiled in tumbled marble tile of muted tones of golden brown.
Roof Top Deck: The next living space in this unique Key West villa is outdoors and upstairs on the large Mexican tiled roof top deck which expands over 3/4 of the roof. This upper deck is reached by a stair case just outside the master suite. The upper deck offers the perfect spot for private lounging, sunning, star gazing, catching the ocean breeze, or staging a roof top cocktail party or dinner. This deck is furnished with outdoor furniture, built-in side bench seating, and outdoor lighting.
Laundry: Finally, back towards the entrance gate is a separate building which serves as the laundry and utility area.
The general design of this property lends itself perfectly to small gatherings of families and friends and should be considered an ideal spot for a gathering of family or friends.
Amenities: Well hidden at the end of little known lane. Private swimming pool, large private gated courtyard, expansive private roof-top sun deck, privacy fences. Fully equipped kitchen, el fresco dining, a/c, telephone, color cable TVs, stereo. Laundry room with washer / dryer. Linens and towels are provided. Catering can be arranged. Maid service can be scheduled.

Cafe neighborhood features art galleries, wonderful eateries and internationally famous fine restaurants, coffee house, fine gift and clothing stores, Grand Vin wine tasting, home made ice cream. Here you start at the top of Duval St. near the Atlantic Ocean and can take the 20 min stroll to the Gulf of Mexico (remember it takes 3 to 4 Key West streets to equal the distance of a typical city block). Sailing, boating, diving, museums, nightlife.

“Our time spent at Amelia's Hideaway was amazing. It was private, but still close to everything. We had 5 adults but never felt constricted. The house had everything we needed. The kitchen was equipped very nicely and was very clean. There were several board games and card games that we took advantage of. We will definitely come back and stay. Thanks VHKW.
“Very nice home. Worked out perfect for 4 couples!
“This is the second time we have rented from VHKW. They are very friendly and renting was a breeze! Amelias hideaway was the perfect place for our group and we enjoyed our stay!
“VHKW was very easy to work with and responsive to our needs. Amelia's Hideway was in a great location with comfortable beds, extremely clean, nice living /kitchen area, lots of bathrooms, comfortable AC & fans, a washer & dryer, nice pool & outdoor areas. There is a CVS right around the corner to pick up shampoo, other toiletries, coffee ect. but a much longer walk to a grocery store. NOTE that there seemed to be some insect activity around the window in the large twin room toilet bathroom.
“We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was located close to Duval street but felt secluded. Everything was clean and in good order. We especially liked the central location of the pool in the courtyard. We would visit Amelia's Hideaway again.
“Staff was very friendly and responsive to all inquiries. Maintenance was on-site within a couple of hours for a non emergency fix of a handrail.
“Very easy to work with. Property was as described and accommodated our large group perfectly! Our grown kids enjoyed the pool, we had plenty of bathrooms available for all of us, plenty of room in general and we were very happy to have a working grill up top on the sundeck. The kitchen had plenty of utensils & dishes. AC worked perfectly, as well, rooms were decorated nicely and nice bedding. House is located at the end of Duval, everything in walking distance so it was easy to come and go. Definitely recommend this vacation home for a large group. Take not though, when they say check out is at 10am, you had better be packed an ready to go because the cleaning crew will show up at 10:05!
“Location, location, location! Our work group of 8 stayed in this home 3 years ago, and we loved it so much, we booked the same place this year! The courtyard, rooftop deck and layout of the hideaway is wonderful! Clean and lovely.
“The location of the home off of Duvall is perfect and private. Very convenient location to anything you need. The layout of this house is perfect and we especially love the privacy of each of the rooms that open to the courtyard. Check-in and check-out procedure was very convenient as well. As out-of-towners we were pleased with all of the items the house came stocked with. We will definitely be looking at using this house again the next time we are down.
“Amelias Hideaway was perfect for our vacation! On a quiet dead end street and steps from Duval St. They way the property is set up was ideal for everyone being together yet everyone having their own personal space. The upper patio was perfect and yet private to enjoy the sun! VHKW was more than accommodating especially with traveling with children. Look forward to renting again! ☀️🌴
“Our group of 8 enjoyed Amelia’s Hideaway’s quiet location and comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen was well appointed with utensils and dishwater as well as spices. The new shower in the end bedroom was wonderful. The only complaint we have is the lack of closet space/ dresser in that bedroom. Overall Amelias is in a fantastic location... walking distance to the ocean and great bars!
“Easy to work with and very knowledgeable of area and properties.
“We enjoyed our stay at Amelia's Hideaway. It was a perfect fit for our group. The outdoor space is great plenty of room. The pool was perfect, the roof top deck was great. We had so much fun and the location was great. Thank you,VHKW we hope to be in touch again real soon!
“We stayed one week in key west in a vacation home. Thx for good organization and service. All was like promised.
“A total of 6 of us rented this unit for a total of 4 nights. It was spacious enough where everyone had their own room and beds. The pool was great and the roof top deck was a great place to relax. Close enough to walk just about anywhere and if not a short Uber ride did the trick. If I go back to Key West I will be seeing if this is available for my stay.
“Perfect location, walking distance to everything, but located on a nice and quiet street. It was great for our family, giving everyone their own space, but had amazing community areas that we used all week to spend time together, Pool was a definite plus!! LOVED this house!
“We loved the privacy of Amelia's Hideaway, all while being just steps off Duval! Great location, and we especially loved all of the outdoor areas- pool, patio and rooftop deck.
“We stayed at Amelia’s Hideaway and had a wonderful time. The house was clean and had a great layout for our group of 10. The location off Duval was perfect. The staff is friendly a very helpful.
“Our house was just perfect for our week stay! We had a group of 8 and there was plenty of room for everyone in beds. The rooftop deck was one of our favorite places to go and sit and just relax. There was not much sun in the pool but plenty of sun up top on the rooftop deck along with plenty of lounge chairs. The house was right off Duval st so walking at night was made very easy to get home. We were greeted with quite a few iguanas that roam the trees during the day, they were very cool to try and spot out. We would highly recommend the Amelia house and would stay again.
“We had a lovely time celebrating my moms 88th birthday at Amelia hide-a-way. The location was wonderful and the pool was a big hit. All of the rooms were clean and comfortable. We would go back again.
“Fabulous vacation at this great family cottage in the perfect location close to restaurants, shops and ocean.
“We had a wonderful time at Amelia’s Hideaway! The outdoor space was so much more than we could have asked for- the pictures don’t do it justice! There was space for everyone without feeling too crowded and all amenities readily available. The home was clean upon our arrival and all questions were answered in a timely manner! Would definitely recommend.
“Great location. Pool was fantastic. Nice and quiet, but near the action.
“Place is nice. Our 2nd year there. Vhkw is a very nice place to deal with and i recomend them highly
“Our group loved the accomodation! The week long stay was perfect- the property was clean and in good repair. It was close to Duvall St. but on the quieter south end. Walkable to everywhere we wanted to be! Highly recommend Amelia’s Hideaway. We will be back!
“We visited in August with three other couples and could not be happier with the accommodations. Each couple had their own space but the common space of the rooftop deck and the pool were amazing. Being August it was pretty hot and I couldn't imagine staying at a property without a pool. There were plenty of towels, the AC worked well, TVs in every room and clean accommodations in what may have been the best location just off Duval Street. We will definitely be returning

“The Hideaway was a great location and I would recommend to others. Lots of indoor and outdoor space and the pool was refreshing.
“Overall great experience at Amelia's hideaway last week. Our family of 10 fit comfortably in the house and really enjoyed the outdoor space for the kids. House was as described and clean when we arrived. When we contacted the maintanance team on a few things they were very responsive.
