Description

Land's End is a charming one-bedroom cottage in Old Town, one block away from the Historic Seaport, a ten-minute walk to Duval Street and Mallory Square, and situated near some of the most architecturally beautiful houses on the streets of Key West. Location, location, location!

From the moment you enter the private compound, you're in a special place. The six small cottages, with peaked metal roofs, white clapboard siding and dark green trim, are nestled in among a lush green garden of ferns and palms lining the pink paver walkway. The heated pool with comfortable woven patio furniture is perfect for swimming, floating, or reading beside. The cottages--several with owners living year-round in them--are only rented by the month, so guests are mature and quiet. The compound is a peaceful oasis away from the excitement of the Duval Street scene, yet so close to the action that stepping out the gate puts you within easy reach of Key West's wonderful attractions and restaurants.

The interior of Land's End, a shot-gun house, was designed by an architect to make excellent use of space. It has central AC and heat. Everything works; the owners keep the house in ship-shape condition. It's a comfortable, cozy, convenient, and hassle-free vacation home that will feel like your own place.

The comfortable living room, with a partial cathedral ceiling and ceiling fan, is furnished with distressed-white Pottery Barn pieces and bright china blue Maine Cottage wicker furniture. The original Haitian art and low-light sconces on the living room walls create an inviting atmosphere. Three windows frame the green palm fronds and tropical scene outside; the windows throughout the house have wide-slat white wood blinds. A kilim rug adds color to the hardwood floor, and a console holds books, placemats for the white cafe-style dining table, and three-ring binders with information on appliances, as well as a book of attractions, menus, and recipes compiled by the owners. The small coffee table looks tropically perfect with a blooming orchid to remind you that you're not in Kansas anymore! Connect your ipod or smart phone via Bluetooth to the wall stereo, watch your favorite shows on the flat-screen TV, or read a good book in the corner rocking chair. Land's End has excellent reading lights in the living room and bedroom.

The kitchen, which runs along the wall between the living room and bedroom, has ample, marble-top counter space, and is equipped by someone who likes to cook. Given the abundance of wonderful restaurants, sandwich shops, bars and happy hours, many within a couple of blocks of Land's End, you never have to cook in Key West. But if you want to, you can buy fresh local seafood or shrimp from The Eaton Street Fish Market close by, or walk or bike to Fausto's supermarket for groceries. You can grill mahi mahi or grouper on the gas grill on the patio, and enjoy a LED candle-lit dinner on the glass patio table. Fix a smoothie for breakfast in the blender, whip cream for your key lime pie, buy organic produce from "Help Yourself" one block away, toast delicious mango bread from Cole's Peace bakery, or turn out a three course gourmet dinner. You'll find Land's End has everything you need to enjoy making a simple or superb meal.

The bathroom, situated across from the kitchen, with a corner shower and natural stone tiles, is a step away from the bedroom. The queen-sized bed has an airy, cream-colored wrought-iron bedstead, and the variety of bed covers provide for any comfort level, from a light, cotton India spread to a down blanket in a duvet cover. One closet in the bedroom contains the linens and stacked washer-driver, and the other is a clothes closet. Enjoy lounging in bed to watch the wall-mounted 32" flat screen TV or stream movies via Roku from your Netflix account. The high cathedral ceiling gives a feeling of space, while a ceiling fan circulates the air, whether you have the windows open or the AC on. Write your novel or check your email on your computer at the built-in desk with a pull-out keyboard tray and bookshelves above. Out the backdoor are stairs down to the little patio with a gas grill and glass patio table and chairs.

Close by, enjoy breakfast with the locals at pink Harpoon Harry's, walk over to the Cuban Coffee Queen food truck for a cafe con leche in the morning or Cuban mix sandwich for lunch, take in Happy Hour nearby at Turtle Kraals, The Boathouse, Solo, or Alonzo's. If you're still hungry, dine at one of the many Key West restaurants along the Bight or down Duval Street. Get out on the water for a sunset sail, sport fishing, or snorkeling. Enjoy the street performers as you await the famous sunset at Mallory Square. Listen to live music at Schooner Wharf, Hog's Breath, or the Green Parrot Bar. Spend a magical hour at the Key West Butterfly Conservatory, breathe in history at the Truman Little White House, take a literary tour of the Hemingway House, or learn about the treasure-laden Spanish galleons that became the spoils of pirates at the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum. Attend a concert at St. Paul's church, go to a movie at the Tropic Cinema, or sunbathe by the pool! Relax! Have fun! Unwind! Warm up! Chill (but not the Northern kind)!
