Description

NEW UNIT!

If you are in a Key West state of mind, you are going to find "Noah's Retreat," a custom-built home, ideal for your vacation rental: 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, dedicated parking, and professional landscaping around a climate-controlled private pool. All this in the most desirable gated community on the island, Truman Annex. This Old Town address is situated with Waterfront Park and the Gulf of Mexico behind it and the internationally famous Duval Street a few blocks in front of it.

Off a quiet, tree-lined street, through a Hunter green metal gate, up a few stairs locates you on the front porch of this two-story home. Once inside, the first thing of note is the terra cotta tile floors in Spanish Mission Red that run as far as the eye can see, unifying the look of the whole first floor. To the right is a full bath and u-shaped kitchen flooded with the warmth of natural light to the left. In fact, the whole house can brag of glorious natural light.

As you would expect, the kitchen is well planned and provides all the appliances and amenities required for an ideal cook's kitchen. Cupboards above and below keep everything you are not using out of sight and out of your way. One end of the kitchen counter conveniently doubles as stool seating, an ideal spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. The open-space floor plan affords a glorious view from the kitchen right through the dining and living areas, through glass doors, to the outside deck and pool. Noah's Retreat engenders a meditative sense of living at once inside and outside which in Key West is an exemplary lifestyle.

Immediately adjacent to the kitchen are French doors that lead into one of the home's delicious bedrooms. This Twin-bedded room can be set up as a King bed upon request. Above the doors but within the door frame, is lovely glass art featuring stylized dolphins and marine plants in striking hues of blue and green. The room's multi-colored area rug depicting swimming turtles continues the marine theme and sets a colorful tone. The headboards are appropriately of woven sea reeds and the bedside table lamps are fashioned of starfish. Above is a ceiling fan to increase air circulation. A closet with shelves and a second, double-sided closet with hanging area provides plenty of space for a travel wardrobe and accouterments.

The dining area has a hardwood table and six chairs, the perfect setup for a formal or casual meal, a board game of some sort, or maybe a card game. The living room has two overstuffed chairs with throw pillows, one of which aptly reads, "Key West Is My Happy Place." Nicely situated to be seen from the comfy couch and chairs is an entertainment center housing a large flatscreen TV and shelves with interesting art pieces and books. You might even want to put your feet up on the distressed coffee table with drawer and a shelf underneath. A ceiling fan whirrs quietly above. And of course, there's high-speed internet, central air, and cable.

Through multiple glass doors is the outside living space, and Noah's Retreat affords plenty of that starting with a covered hardwood deck. Here you and yours can eat at the table, sit in chairs to read or chat, or stretch out on one of the chaise loungers to get some sun. As with the kitchen, amenities abound. For example, the gas grill which suggests a meal of fresh-caught grilled local fish. From here enjoy the stunning sight of the L shaped pool with its own waterfall and tropical foliage perimeter. Perhaps take advantage of its sparkling, climate-controlled waters for a float or swim any time of day or night in pool attire or less. The sun and puffy white clouds float above. Next to the pool is parking in the attractive carport integrated into a white picket fence.

The marine theme and color scheme continue on the second floor. Like the first floor unified by the Mexican tiles, this floor has gleaming hardwood floors throughout and features two delightful bedrooms. The master is of a generous size and includes a king bed, a full bath, laundry room, and nicely appointed sitting area with TV. Not to mention that through glass doors, an outside covered balcony running the whole width of the house overlooks the dazzling pool. It's the perfect "a-ha" place to enjoy your good luck at being in Key West and residing at Noah's Retreat for your stay. The other bedroom, the queen, also has a large balcony looking over the tree-line neighborhood of Truman Annex. It has its own full bath.

As if Noah's Retreat by itself doesn't provide enough pleasure, there's still the rest of Key West to explore. Stroll through the manicured landscaping, verdant palms, and interconnecting pathways that give the Truman Annex neighborhood its park-like atmosphere. Then head out through the wrought iron privacy gate to find yourself in the midst of Duval's tourist attractions: tours, museums, shopping, bars, and restaurants, many with open-air seating, some right on the water. If you're interested in watersports, the Historic Seaport offers all kinds: diving, fishing, parasailing, snorkeling, and jet skiing to name a few. Don't miss the nightly sunset celebration at Mallory Square, where visitors and locals alike gather to applaud as the sun slips below the horizon. Afterward, stick around for the festivities that follow.

Maybe your taste runs more towards the arts. If so, you're in the right place for music, movies, plays, art galleries, lectures, and more. If you like beaches, your accommodations are close to a favorite locals' beach, Fort Zachery Taylor, where you can rent chairs, umbrellas, and snorkeling equipment. Bathrooms, showers, a snack bar, and picnic tables are also available. Or maybe you'll decide to skip the beach in favor of exploring the adjacent Civil War-era fort, which was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1973.

If this is your first trip to the Conch Republic, a guidebook from Books & Books on Eaton Street or a stop at the Chamber of Commerce Information Center on Greene Street will help make sure you don't miss anything. To know what's going on from day to day, you can check out Historic Hideaways' informative Area Guide/Events page at http://www.historichideaways.com/key-west-events/. Other info on the current music scene, movies, plays, gallery openings, and charitable events can be found at milezerokeywest.com (calendar section).
