Imagine the quintessential Caribbean island village, its cottages nestled hand-in-hand on charming historic pedestrian streets. As people stroll by, sun kissed from an afternoon of beaching and sight seeing, they'll say hi to one another even if they've never met. This is your neighborhood during your stay at the Caribbean Cottage vacation rental. One of the best vacation rental locations on the island - without a doubt. Around the corner "Grand Vin" wine bar stands ready for an evening wine tasting session while "Flamingo Crossing" ice cream parlor offers up a new flavor of home made glace.
Recently restored, this historic Caribbean Cottage, with private pool added in September, 2015 in the back yard, has an authentic Caribbean island feel, with original wood planked polished floors, vintage hand-hewed beams, bright blue tile (accented with marble), and Bahama style wooden window shutters. Artist owners painted the original pine walls with elegant historic colors of olive and cream, and adorned the sash style windows with wooden shutters and French linen curtains. Reserved for owner's use only for many years, original artwork from their private collection is displayed throughout for you to enjoy.
The living room is a generous cottage size with plenty of room to gather. On the side closest to the kitchen, a dining table is placed to create a roomy eating area. The adjoining "butler-pantry" style kitchen is spacious, has a charming French-Caribbean style ambiance, and is fully equipped and easy to cook in.
The interior lay-out of this cottage maximizes privacy with the bedrooms and bathrooms on one side and common living areas on the other. The cottage has two full bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
Bedding in this vintage cottage includes a king size bed in the master bedroom, and a queen size bed in the other. The master bedroom boasts a beautiful rich wooden armoire, and French doors lead from the bedroom to a pretty outdoor sitting area for reading and lounging. For extra sleeping, the living room has a comfortable twin daybed.
From the outside front, the cottage has charming curb appeal with a large beautiful Royal Poinciana tree and the Key West quintessential white picket fence, and of course the porch to sit and watch the world go by. The general design and layout of the cottage lends itself perfectly for versatile use. It is ideal for up to four, and can sleep up to five people comfortably.

“What a quaint and warm little cottage. We fully enjoyed ourselves. Only issue was the pool is a little small and deck space for sunning was limited. It also could be the time of year, but the sun availability was limited around the pool. But we will visit this cottage again in the future. Well worth the time and money. Much closer to Duvall St activity than website leads you to believe. Fabulous to walk out your front door to get great Ice Cream and staples just at the end of the street (100 feet).
“We had a great time at the Caribbean Cottage. It was a great location, the home was clean, and the pool was great after a hot walk on duval, we went night swimming ever night. Thanks so much, we had a great vacation.
“We absolutely loved our accommodations! Great location! Exceeded our expectations!
“The hardest part of this vacation, was LEAVING!!! Reservations were easy, as was the paperwork and payments. My mom had never taken a vacay like this, but I had, so I knew what to pack, but the house was already prepped with most of the essentials we took! The 506 Virginia was very clean, had a very warm coming home feeling to it, and the private pool was everything! Check in was very easy and I love the fact that VHKW called me prior to arrival to touch base. We will definitely come back to 506 Virginia, and look forward to working with VHKW again! My only suggestion would be to spray the yard, or bring yard guard for the mosquitos! They were really bad early morning and later afternoon...but they didn't keep us from having a blast!
“Cottage was nice and very easy to access. Our stay was quaint and convenient.
“Absolutely perfect for two couples to stay at Key West! Homemade ice cream on the corner, 4 short blocks to the beach and southernmost point, and 2 blocks from our favorite restaurant, La Te Da. Accommodations were everything as listed and shown in the pictures. Everything worked and there were no problems at all. Checking in and out was a piece of cake. Pool was private, clean and so refreshing. I would definitely return to this piece of paradise! Vacation Homes of Key West was a pleasure to book with.
“This place is near Duval St on the far end from Mallory Square. It was lovely and had the feel of a small cottage with all the amenities of home. It had a parking spot in the driveway for one car and a private pool. Very close the Butterfly and Nature Conservatory which we always visit when in Key West. We highly recommend this place.
“Great cottage, when we had issues with the pool pump, maintenance came right away. We had an awesome stay. Thanks
“Wonderful experience. Very quick to reply to any concerns or questions
