Description

There's no more perfect place to practice the art of tropical vacationing than this professionally decorated, two-story townhome, which features two bedrooms, two and a half baths, a private deck with private hot tub, and a master bedroom balcony. A short walkway flanked by lush gardens leads to a large, temperature-controlled pool and covered gazebo overlooking the world-famous Duval Street. Or if you prefer sand and salt water, the nearest beach is just a few blocks away.

Duval Square is one of the townhouses forming a small rooftop community secluded above quaint shops and excellent restaurants. The street level also offers gated parking and security entrances for the townhouses. Despite its location in the heart of Old Town Key West, Duval Square has an unparalleled air of tranquility, elegance, and exclusivity.

The front door anchor-and-starfish wreath sets the seaside theme for the rest of the residence, one that takes top honors for décor. The front foyer is much more than an entryway. Here you'll find a wall-mounted hook rack, a bench, baskets and cubbies to hold the things you want handy as you enter or exit your home away from home. One pillow on the bench proclaims a quintessential Key West adage: Life is Better in Flip Flops.

The foyer leads to an open floor plan typical of the island's inclination to promote a seamless, contemporary social flow among the heretofore separate functions of cooking, eating, and relaxing. Ocean blue walls unify the space, as do the natural fiber area rugs, travertine floors, and beachcomber art accoutrements.
To the right of the foyer is a fully equipped kitchen with contemporary track lighting above. There's plenty of counter space as well as a snack bar with two cushioned stools. Wall cabinets and below-counter cabinets provide copious storage, making it easy to keep everything you're not using out of your way. A window over the double sink admits plenty of ambient light. Later, as the day turns to evening, you can turn to the track lighting for illumination. This is an ideal kitchen for preparing a four-course meal or for warming leftovers from some fabulous meal you ate the night before in one of the nearly 200 area restaurants and bars. The kitchen area also has a washer/dryer closet and a storage closet.

The track lighting motif repeats in the dining area, where a solid hardwood table, matching sideboard, and cushioned chairs create the perfect spot for casual or formal meals or just a game of cards. A four-light rope chandelier hangs over the table, adding a distinctive nautical touch in daylight or evening mood lighting at night.

The living area centers on a white slip-covered couch that doubles as a pull-out queen sleeper. A matching overstuffed armchair stands nearby. Colorful throw pillows dot the couch and chair, some in nautical stripes and some in coral patterns. The wall above the couch hosts a striking, three-panel octopus painting in black and white. Two large round ottomans nearby can serve as footstools or coffee tables for drinks and books. A flatscreen TV hangs on the opposite wall, perfectly positioned for viewing from the couch and chair, and under it sits a handy door-and-drawer storage cabinet. Of course there's cable, wireless high-speed Internet, and a DVD player. Over the living area, a Casablanca ceiling fan creates cooling air currents. A convenient half guest bath completes the first floor layout.

Although the living area is visually appealing, casual, and very comfortable, your eyes can't help but shift to the glass French doors that lead to the outside deck. Here the theme of ocean blue with black and white accents is masterfully continued in chairs, love seat, and tables. A market umbrella provides shade while white lattice work forms the perimeter, creating a private space that still allows the sea breezes off the Atlantic Ocean to waft through. In the right corner of the deck stands an inviting, two-person hot tub where you could relax with your morning latte or your late-night cocktail.

If you aren't already wishing you could move in permanently, you will feel that way once you see the upstairs. A carpeted staircase leads to the second floor, which has two bedrooms, a queen bed in the guest bedroom, and a king in the master suite. Each has a private en suite full bath. The beds are comfortable, the décor is well-coordinated with the downstairs, and plenty of sunshine comes through the windows. Chests of drawers, nightstands, and large closets provide all the "put away" space you will need for your vacation wardrobe. Through the glass doors in the master bedroom is a fresh air balcony with two chairs and a table. From the left side of it you can see the pool.

When adventure calls, stroll down to the pool, which is heated and exclusively for guests. The pool is spacious and the chaise lounges inviting. Sit under the canopied roof for shade or out in the sun to work on a tan. If others are enjoying the pool at the same time, you can strike up a conversation, share vacation stories, and get tips about great places to go in Key West.

Or maybe it's time to wander down to Duval Street itself, a thoroughfare that has been officially designated a Great Street by the American Planning Association. A left turn will head you toward the Southernmost Café and the shores of the Atlantic. A right turn will send you toward the Gulf of Mexico. In between are all the things that make the Conch Republic so famous: beaches, tours, museums, shopping, food and drink establishments, and the Key West Aquarium where you can pet a shark if you dare. Or maybe you'd prefer to have butterflies land on your shoulder at the Butterfly Conservatory. If the arts interest you, you've come to the right place for music, movies, plays, art galleries, lectures, artists' open studios, and more. Don't miss the sunset celebration at Mallory Square or the opportunities for all kinds of water sports along the Historic Seaport boardwalk.

"Place was beautiful, clean and very cozy"

5 of 5

The unit we stayed in was beautifully decorated, very clean, with a beach theme. There was 4 girls, plenty of room, met our expectation and then some. Highly recommend staying here. Location is perfect, we walked a lot, by choice. Not close to large beach but we walked, it was quite a walk but certainly if used to walking it is an option or if you have car it is close.

"Wonderful rental"

5 of 5

Great location. Super rental, professionally decorated. Fully stocked kitchen. Would definitely recommend and would definitely rent again myself. Easy check in and out.

"Key West Stay"

5 of 5

"Very cute condo"

4 of 5

The condo is very convenient to everything on Key West. The condo is decorated nicely is comfortable. The pool is small but nice.The only thing is the complex needs to be painted on the outside and the gutters cleaned. I will definetly be back.

"It's 5 o'clock here!"

5 of 5

Great place, decorative Floridian theme, easy late night check-in, wonderful staff. Newly furnished in a perfect location on Duval St, two blocks from the Hemingway house and toward the east end easy walking down Duval to Mallory Square. Will stay here again

"Great rennovations! Management disappointing"

5 of 5

This unit was just remodeled and is outstanding. Great little touched everywhere and very clean. Definitely kudos to the new owners and the location if perfect. Now for the not so good.. We were only down for a 3 night stay and very much looking forward to spending some relaxing time by the pool. Our first day we ventured to the pool to find 2 different groups of about 10 guys each and were drinking and swearing very loud to the point were the females in my group could not take it any longer so they went back to the condo very disappointed. I let it go the first day just chalking it up to a fluke and likely would not happen again(wrong). The next day we stayed a way a little longer thinking they certainly wouldnt be back again BUT they were. This day they had beer cans lined up around the pool, the plastic pool furniture floating in the pool, and yelling profanities. I called the management company shortly after 5 and was told SORRY, nothing we can do after 5 and that we would need to try back the next day. What?!?! They were destroying the place and I spoke to other tenants who expressed displeasure as well. So, next I contacted one of the other realty companies looking for anyone who could help at this point and finally someone said they would take care of it and they did. It is very ironic that the rental companies make you sign about 10 documents about damage and respecting the property but when it comes to enforcing cant help?? Great unit but not helpful management.

"Perfect vacation!"

5 of 5

Condo was just as described. Very clean, spacious, and comfortable. It was well stocked and felt like home! Location was perfect, being right on Duval St. Pool area was clean and provided plenty of lounge chairs. Would definitely stay here again.

"Good location,parking,clean"

3 of 5

Pros: very Clean roomy house, good kitchen for cooking. Very Cold AC which was great with the humidity outside. Great location in apartment complex next to duval. It was close to everything but far enough from the noisy part of duval. We had a parking spot allotted to us which was good because parking around town would have been difficult. We took 3 kids (7,12,14) and had 5 bikes that we road everywhere. We used our parking spot for that. The bikes were the best way to travel around the island because everything is within about 1 block to two miles. Staff was attentive when we had trouble and questions.Cons: the hide-a-bed was a torcher rack and the 5th person ended up sleeping on the floor on the mattress. The hot tub was cold and wouldn't heat. The hot tub cover needs replaced. The pool was more like a baby pool...only 3-4 feet deep and small.Overall, we would stay there again because it was affordable, clean, close and cold as long as you didn't expect to put someone on the hide-a-bed. 3.5 stars

"Clean, spacious and in the middle of everything!"

5 of 5

This condo was perfect for four of us. Two bedrooms were big and the pullout couch was handy too. I like the security gates, pool, and hot tub too. Great location if you're looking for restaurants, bars, and shops. Easy walk to the docks and beaches.

"Perfect Vacation"

5 of 5

The condo we rented, was nice, clean, roomy, fantastic location. A better value than the Bed & Breakfast. The location was close to the excitement of Duval Street, but was quiet. Really enjoyed the pool.

"Ask about Construction"

3 of 5

The location of Duval Square was great for the experience we wanted, and the townhouse itself wasn't bad. However, we weren't told about the construction that would be going on literally on the townhouse we were staying in. It started at 7am each morning during the week and went on all day. So, even though the unit had a kitchen, we didn't want to stay there to eat lunch, because of all of the banging. Needless to say, it was not the relaxing vacation we had hoped. We read the contract to see if we could be moved, and it specifically states that they can do maintenance at any time. I didn't realize that also meant loud construction. Won't be staying there again.

Manager Response:

Angela, we are sorry about the construction around the complex that week. We were notified by the Condo Association just 10 days prior to your arrival of impending construction with no exact dates even then. (It comes in waves over there.) Unfortunately, we cannot control their association so we apologize on their behalf. Its very frustrating for us, even more so for you of course, that these condo boards do not plan better and notify us in a timely manner. Again, we apologize for this.

For the benefit of future Guests staying at any of our properties, when we know about construction in advance that will adversely affect a stay, we do NOT rent the home. Instead, we remove it from the rental pool for the duration of construction whenever possible and practical. Also, in general we DO move people when last minute issues like this happen (and they do) but in this case it was race week and we had nothing left to move this Guest to. Finally, the maintenance we refer to in our contract is stuff directly related to inside the home or stuff we have control over (if something breaks and you call about it for example) or pool, yard weekly service, etc. It does not refer to construction around homes (neighbors, condo boards, etc.) that we have no control over. - Management
