"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, a large kitchenette, and a private half-bath (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.

“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.
“We had a wonderful time and it was a fantastic property. Looking forward to next year.
“We had a wonderful week at Amelia's Hideaway! The location was perfect and the house was just right for our group. Loved the pool, the proximity to the beach and the quick access to Duval! We will be back!
