Description

Location combined with history and design makes Coral Condo a prize piece of vacation real estate. This cozy one bedroom is located in the heart of Old Town just one block off Duval Street, where you'll find many of the attractions visitors come to the island to enjoy. This large corner condo is on the second floor of the restored Hollised House, one of Key West's turn of the 19th century Victorian homes that has been meticulously converted into contemporary vacation rental condos. Coral Condo opens onto a wrap-around porch overlooking the courtyard and pool on one side and fashionable Southard Street on the other. The Condo is listed as having one king bedroom but that doesn't tell the whole story: there's also a queen pullout sofa with a memory foam mattress.

Your first thoughts upon arrival will probably be of spending time in the heated pool provided for the exclusive use of Hollised House guests. This amenity is surrounded by an expansive antique brick deck ringed with tropical foliage that creates beauty and privacy. As the eternal summer sun moves across the sky, sunshine plays through palm fronds creating a pattern of shadows and bright sparkles over the pool surface and deck. The deck features plenty of chaise loungers where you can stretch out in sun or shade to watch a puffy white cloud or two float across the sky. Tables with chairs, a barbeque grill, and a delightful fountain complete the scene.

Although Key West is an outdoorsy kind of place, your living quarters are also an important component of your vacation. The front door to Coral Condo opens into a great room with generous living space and a small dining area. A bonded leather couch and two armchairs face a glass bookshelf and a wall-mounted flat-screen TV. Sit here in comfort for a little down time. Maybe watch TV or a movie. Or perhaps you'd prefer to share cocktails and conversation with family or friends. A high, beamed ceiling above holds a paddle ceiling fan that adds air circulation and a touch of tropical design. The hardwood floors under foot are elegant and practical. Nestled behind the couch is a round glass table and two high-backed rattan chairs with pillows. Both outside walls of the great room have multiple windows and French doors that open to the front balcony.

Just off the living room is a full bath with shelves full of white textured towels, a generous mirror, and an artistically interesting lighting fixture over the sink. Right beyond the bath is a U-shaped kitchen nicely designed to include all the conveniences you'd expect, including a dishwasher and microwave. The décor is a striking blond wood and blond floor tiles with black appliances, black countertops, and complimentary tiny backsplash tiles. It's a perfect kitchen for whipping up a whole meal or just brewing a cup of coffee to take out to one of the chairs on the 2nd floor balcony or down to the pool area.

Through a doorway in the great room is the spacious bedroom, which like the rest of the condo space has plenty of windows to let in the island's lovely ambient light. Even with the king bed, there's plenty of room left over for matching white wicker furniture: a dresser and mirror, two armchairs, a TV stand with TV, and bedside tables with lamps. Nothing seems crowded or inconveniently placed. Everything invites relaxation.

Once you've put on suntan lotion and unpacked your shade hat, it's time to explore some of America's only Caribbean island. Whether you're interested in history, architecture, unusual flora and fauna, or the myriad opportunities to have fun, all you need do to begin your exploration is walk one block down to Duval. This famous street spans the island's two-mile width from the Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico. The many attractions include Smathers and Higgs beaches, the Southernmost Point, Hemingway House, the Truman White House, Fort Zachery Taylor, and the Historic Seaport to name a few. While you're in town, check out the tours, museums, water sports, shopping, bars, and over two hundred restaurants in all price ranges and covering all diet specialties, many with open-air seating, some right on the water. Maybe take a Conch Train Tour or a Historic Key West Walking Tour. Be sure to save time for the world famous Mallory Square sunset celebration where crowds of visitors and locals alike gather to witness the sun sink into the horizon. Like those around you, you'll find yourself applauding as the last round edge of fiery orange slips out of sight. Then hang around for the party as artists and street performers entertain the crowd. From here you can continue up the boardwalk to check out the Historic Seaport with its restaurants, shops, and tall ships offering day and sunset sails. When you're tired, return to Coral Condo to rest up for more adventure tomorrow.

To know what's going on from day to day, check out Historic Hideaways' informative Events page on their website. Other information on the current music scene, movies, plays, gallery openings, and charitable events can be found at milezerokeywest.com or in the print publication Paradise, which is available at various locations around town every Thursday.

Free delivery and setup (over $75) of beer/wine/liquor is available from Kwest Liquors, 705 Duval Street. Historic Hideaways guests receive a discount on pricing. Order in advance and have your vacation home fully stocked upon arrival. Contact our office in advance for details.

"Great condo and location"

5 of 5

My wife and I loved everything about our rental of Coral Condo through Historic Hideaways!! The patio area and small-sized pool are the perfect size and typically wide open; as long as you are respectful you can use both during any hour.

-MrLandry on 02/13/2017

 

"Awesome place to stay, we will be back!"

5 of 5

Loved this place, our eighth trip to Key West and the best accommodations yet. Very spacious rooms and loved the courtyard. I was a little concerned that the pool is only 12 ft by 12 ft, but I usually had it to myself. The location is the best we've ever had. Very close to all the places you want to go to. Just two and a half blocks from the Green Parrot. It had a secluded feel to it as well. There are eight units there but only two others were occupied while we were there. The only draw back is parking, but I am willing to deal with that for a place like this at the price we paid.

"Coral Condo....Updated, Great Location & A Full Kitchen!"

5 of 5

PERFECT HONEYMOON!!!! The condo was beautiful. We had everything we needed. It was spacious. The pool was clean and the water temperature was just right. The wrap around porch was perfect for a morning cup of coffee or a evening glass of wine. We even were able to have the fridge stocked with beer, wine and juices prior to our arrival. We will definitely be back.

"Center of it all... Car not necessary"

5 of 5

Block and a half to Duval. You can walk to Southern Most Pt, Hemingway's house, Truman White House, Boat Dock, Aquarium, Ft Taylor & all restaurants.Of the 8 nights we were there, we did eat out twice while we prepared dinner in the condo 6 times. There is a full service grocery store within 2 blocks of the condo.Nice King bed; very good nights sleep, full and open kitchen that opens up to a sitting area to just relax, watch some TV. The bathroom was just off the sitting area. Preparing for the day meant that you walk through the condo to get there. However there is much privacy where outsiders are not able to look in.The outside balcony is great for just sitting with a drink and watching people and cars go by. The pool was always refreshing. It is a wading pool so don't expect to swim laps or other physical activities.Bottom line is: If I go back to Key West, I would stay at this condo in a heartbeat.BTW... The BBQ was in terrible shape... a letdown that we couldn't cook outside.

"Conveniently located to Duval St."

3 of 5

Nice little unit, but would have preferred being downstairs. Had a slight musty smell when we first arrived, but after some cleaning it was much better. The unit is nicely equipped with essentials should you choose to cook. Pool was small but clean. I would stay again but not on the upper level.

-Teresa J on 02/03/2015

 

"Paradise"

5 of 5
