Welcome to Oceana Suite in Key West, a little piece of hidden paradise you probably never knew existed. Once you're nestled into this exclusive tropical hideaway, you'll forget you're right in the heart of Old Town Key West. Situated in a gated poolside colony in one of Key West’s oldest residential neighborhoods, this courtyard has all the elements for a tropical paradise vacation.
A legacy to the cigar making history of Key West, this charming 1 bedroom - 1 bathroom cottage was originally built in the early1900’s as part of a tiny neighborhood of workforce cabanas. Today we find 8 upscale cottages set-back from authentic Olivia Street in Old Town. An expansive bricked parking entrance gives beautiful curb appeal and leads to a secure locked gatehouse. Pass through the gatehouse to enter this charming courtyard with large tiled swimming pool, beautiful mature landscaping, and garden pathways paved with elegant flagstone.
The Layout: Access the Oceana Suite cottage through a tall gated lattice fence to the right of the swimming pool. Open the gate and pause for a moment. Appreciate your own spacious deck, complete with outdoor dining table and notice the double sets of French doors leading to the cottage. Straight ahead are doors that lead to the bedroom; and to the right more doors connect to the living room. With these three double French door entrances to the deck, you’re all set to enjoy the quintessential Key West indoor / outdoor lifestyle.
When the interior of the cottage was redesigned, the wooden cross beams were exposed, and the ceiling was finished to the roof line. Cathedral windows were placed along one side of the living room, creating a wall of natural light and views of the tropical trees. Below those windows, the pool-garden view is further expanded with two sets of sash windows, and then high above the sofa, more windows offer even more light. The living room is nicely furnished with a lime-green queen-sized sleeper sofa and loveseat, plus a soft cream-colored leather easy chair. For movie night, a 50” wall mounted TV is placed on the wall opposite the sofa.
The living room of Oceana Suite seamlessly flows into the kitchen on one side of the cottage clear to the back of the building. A drop leaf dining table, is set to one side as you enter the kitchen. The same cathedral windows found in the living room, light up the outside kitchen wall, and below them a convenient back kitchen door opens outside to a paved garden path. Wooden plank-style ceramic floor tile spans from the living room into the kitchen. Other upscale extras in the kitchen include blonde wooden cabinetry, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and chandelier lighting.
Stepping back into the living room and around the corner is the bathroom. Done in earth tone granite and tile, the bathroom offers a single vanity with under counter oval sink, double size shower with seamless glass doors. A wide mirror, topped with beauty bar lighting, bounces the light around while shabby chic storage cabinets keeps the cottage feel.
Next we look at the bedroom of the Oceana Suite cottage, conveniently located right next to the bathroom. Bedroom décor repeats the same open beam ceilings found in the rest of the cottage. Furnished with off-white coastal style furnishings and tropical artwork, a king size bed is placed in the center of the wall with bedside tables on either side. On one side of the room, double French doors lead to the outside deck, and on the other wide side, sliding windows set above eye level assure plenty of natural light. There is a shelf with a 45-inch flat screen TV on the wall past the foot of the bed..
Throughout the cottage, the decorator drew from calming tropical and coastal design. Walls are painted a soft blue green. Burlap curtains offer a casual cottage touch, while exotic ceiling fans with leaf shaped blades create a paradise island feel.
The layout of Oceana Suite s as functional as it is fun. When you eat-in, choose to stay inside and dine at the drop leaf table, or outside on your own private fenced in deck. A queen sleeper-sofa is conveniently positioned in the living room. Toward the back of the cottage the kitchen is nicely equipped with all you need to cook. This cottage is ideal for one couple and a perfect get away for a single. It also works well for a family with one or two children.
Whether you are looking for a private getaway with a central base to explore, or the perfect location for a romantic get-away, this paradise will be home away from home. So, close your eyes for a few moments, and imagine tropical Key West, and this charming cottage just waiting for you.
