I have a true confession - My husband and I love going on extended vacations with our grown children and grandkids. But we also treasure our own space - if you know what I mean. The combination of this 5BR 4.5 BA Grand Marshall monthly rental, is exactly what we look for when we book an upscale beautifully decorated vacation rental for all of us.
This perfect combo of two upscale renovated homes, On Hemingway’s Rounds, and Governor’s Retreat, are ideally situated on separate lots with fenced backyards that border with each other. When you rent both, you get twice the space, double the privacy, two master suites, two swimming pools, two spacious sundecks, multiple covered sitting porches (with views), two kitchens, plus two off-street parking spaces, and will undoubtedly double the relaxation, and fun!
On Hemingway’s Rounds, is a perfectly redesigned 1-story 2BR 2BA American Bungalow circa 1920. Here you enjoy a home which provides an open-concept living room / dining / full kitchen, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and 2nd bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The master suite is at the back of the house, and has the winning feature of sliding glass doors that leads to the pool deck. Outside, in the front of the house, there's a covered sitting porch that runs the width of the house. In the fenced back yard, there’s a sundeck and swimming pool. On the other side of the back fence, we find the 2-story 3BR 2.5 bath, Governor’s Retreat.
Situated back off the street, on a small-picturesque lane, Governor’s Retreat is a 2-story house, and offers 1st and 2nd floor front covered porches with charming views of the neighborhood. When you stay here, you’ll have the spacious 1st floor great room with equipped kitchen, dining area, and comfy living room at the back, adjoining the poolside deck. When it’s time for bed, the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are upstairs. You may have to flip a coin for the master bedroom suite on the 2nd floor, as it has an en-suite bath. Plus - the master suite also harbors a closed-in private porch room, with a fabulous view of the swimming pool below.
The focal point of this combined property of 2 homes, is the remarkable indoor / outdoor island living space made possible by combining the back yards with 2 unique swimming pools, spacious back decks, and multiple covered porches. Another fabulous feature is that one house places you on famous Whitehead Street, where you can people watch from the front porch; the other house stations you on a quiet less traveled lane. Where they meet in the back, you can create an outdoor world all your own.
Located where the downtown Old Town Key West and Bahama Village neighborhoods meet, here you’ll stay less than a block from the Hemingway Home and Museum, where Papa lived and wrote in the 1920’s. Only a few-minute walk to famous hip eateries like the Moon Dog Café’ and Blue Heaven, famous bars like The Green Parrot Bar and Sloppy Joe’s, from here you can easily stroll to all the numerous downtown features Key West has to offer. You’re also not far from the Mallory Square dock, Fort Zachary Taylor State Park Beach and the Truman Waterfront Park with the Key West Outdoor Concert Amphitheater, and for the kiddos, the Key West Splash Pad.
