Amelia's Hideaway ~ Weekly Rental

4BR 4BA ~ Weekly Rental
Sleeps 8-10

"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 all the 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.

We loved the house and location!!! The only downside was the parking my elderly father had trouble with how far away the parking lot was and he actually parked in a closer lot to the house by the butterfly museum and paid out of pocket. Also I’m still waiting on reimbursement for the parking that I paid for. There really is no reason why in this day and age it can’t be an eft. Other that those small thing it was an amazing house and we had an amazing time and will definitely recommend you and use you again in the future.. Thank you!

Feb 23, 2023,
Very nice and well kept. Easy access to great locations

Jan 12, 2023,
Excellent service.

Dec 20, 2022,
Loved this house! The location was perfect just Steps from Duvall (like 3 houses back) far enough for privacy at night but close for all activities! Restaurants close were delicious and it only took 24mins to walk to the other end of the strip. Perfect amount of beds and bathrooms! Pool was amazing and the rooftop patio was a huge hit! Highly recommend this home for a party of 6 or more!!

Dec 09, 2022,
Easy to book. We had food being delivered prior to our check in time and the staff was very helpful, they went to the house to accept the delivery and unpacked all of our refrigerator items. 100% recommend and will be booking through them again.

Jul 09, 2022,
The property was just as pictures showed. There were 7 of us and we all were comfortable. Kitchen and living room was separate from the rest of the house which was nice so at night if some people where up and watching TV others where not disturbed. We had no problems besides the internet going in and out on the property but that was not a real issue with us. There is no parking at the property however we would bring our car and load and unload with no issues. Instead of parking in a paid parking lot we would park the car on Whitehead St. about 3 blocks over for free - just make sure there are no blue parking signs that say you have to pay to park. To be honest if I was to go back to Key West I would not get a rental car. Ubers are available all the time and it would be much cheaper. Location was great - very close to shops, restaurants and bars. The house had TP, paper towels, garbage bags, to get you started. Lots of games in the house. The pool was great to have.

We had 5 couples stay for my 40th birthday and it was fantastic!! House was just as pictured. A few maintenance things that could use repair, but we all had an awesome time!

Apr 26, 2022,
Wonderful stay in Key West! We loved the location and all of Amelia’s Hideaway! It was perfect for our family.

Feb 04, 2022,
We all had a great time at Amelias Hideaway! From the moment we opened the door to this beautiful sanctuary so quietly tucked away and still right in the middle of everything wonderful. I will soon be planning my next Key West getaway and Will definitely be asking VHKW to help me find the perfect vacation home. Great job guys!

Jan 06, 2022,
We loved the house! The layout was perfect for our group and the location was very convenient!!

Nov 22, 2021,
We loved the house and location!!

Aug 07, 2021,
What a great place! Perfect location! Accommodated 4 couples with lots of room to spare! Please add skid proof tape to access the upper deck! Very slippery when wet!!

Jun 03, 2021,
Awesome house and amazing location!

May 21, 2021,
VHKW keeps things simple and easy. Amelias was perfect for our group of 7

Apr 12, 2021,
The house was great! It was perfect for four couples to explore Key West. We had a great response from the Rental Office when our toaster stop working. We had a brand new toaster the next day. The cleaning crew does show up early so be ready to check-out right at 10:00AM. We would rent this house again!

Mar 05, 2021,
We loved the house and had a great time. We had everything we needed and your staff was great. Thank you!!!

Dec 09, 2020,
Our family of 8 stayed at Amelia's Hideaway. Loved the location, the home was exactly as posted on the website. Every room was beautiful. We took full advantage of the sundeck, pool & grill. The only complaint I had were some termites in the 1st room which were visible and they came to take care of.

Mar 25, 2020,
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.

Mar 13, 2020,
Very nice home. Worked out perfect for 4 couples!

Mar 07, 2020,
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!

Feb 29, 2020,
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.

Feb 20, 2020,
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.

Feb 07, 2020,
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.

Jan 21, 2020,
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!

Jan 20, 2020,
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.

Jan 09, 2020,
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.

Dec 31, 2019,
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! ☀️🌴

Dec 01, 2019,
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!
