Description

Poinciana House, a one-bedroom, two-full bath conch cottage, is a standout in authentic Florida design and guest friendliness. The private pool area and tropical garden is where you find the namesake Royal Poinciana tree complete with a chair hammock beckoning from one enormous branch. Swinging back and forth, you can almost hear strains of the 1930s classic song "Poinciana" (the song of the trees). Another compelling feature of the cottage is its location just a half block from the Ernest Hemingway house and from Duval Street, the main artery for all that fun stuff you came to Key West to enjoy.

As typical in Key West, the cottage architecture takes full advantage of the sundrenched weather with a rear covered patio, private heated pool, outdoor shower, side patio, and second floor sundeck. The rear patio is generous and defined by redwood planking underfoot and a roof overhead. It's dotted with patio furniture including the perfect dinner spot, a wicker dining table and matching chairs. Maybe the setting will inspire you to barbecue something savory at the gas grill and enjoy eating it al fresco here.

Two steps down puts you at the edge of the dramatic L-shaped lagoon pool, which extends across the rear of the cottage and up the left side swimming lane, ending at a hidden conversation area off the front bedroom. Linger near the pool's jets, swim laps, or just paddle around to refresh. A fourth option is ascending a spiral staircase to the sundeck overlooking the pool, where you'll find chaise lounges and plenty of tanning space.

Poinciana House is demarcated from Olivia Street by an off-street parking area and a white picket fence. Inside the fenced perimeter is a front garden that leads to the front porch. Get out your camera because one garden feature is an amazing banyan tree with multiple external roots, extensive branching, and large leaves. The cottage front door opens into a bedroom suite with a queen bed, sitting area, bath, and generous closet space for folded and hanging travel attire. But best of all, one wall is composed of glass French doors that lead to a private outside conversation area perfect for enjoying a cup of morning coffee in your PJs. In case you brought the kids or expect guests, more sleeping areas include an open space adjacent to the kitchen with a full platform bed and a pull out queen futon in the living room.

The kitchen is painted cloud white with wood accents and has all the appliances you'll need to cook a meal or just microwave some yummy leftovers. There's plenty of counter space and windows at every turn. One arm of the counter does double duty as an eat-at bar with stools. Sunshine yellow walls, a hanging wine rack, and hardwood floors complete the perfect picture. Across from the kitchen is the second full bath done in dramatic black and white decor.

The next rectangular area encompasses the living and dining area. Two couches the fire-orange color of a blooming Poinciana tree provide plenty of comfortable seating for watching TV or enjoying the company of friends and family. During daytime this area is flooded with natural light from the wall of French doors leading to the deck and pool area. Adjacent to the living area is the inside dining area, which includes a round table with four upholstered chairs. So many choices-eat at the breakfast bar, eat here, or eat on the covered patio. You could even take snacks and drinks up to enjoy on the sundeck that feels a bit like a tree house. Of course there's also cable, wireless high-speed Internet, and a DVD player.

Or maybe you'd rather eat out at one of Key West's over two hundred restaurants, many with open-air seating, some right on the water. You can decide as you explore Whitehead Street and the Southernmost Point marker. Or walk half a block in the other direction to find Duval, which runs the width of the island from the Gulf of Mexico to a pier jutting out into the wide Atlantic Ocean. If you want to buy a silly T-shirt or have your picture taken with an Elvis-look-alike, Duval is the street. It also offers opportunities for tours, beaches, museums, water sports, shopping, bars, and eateries. This home is Pet (Dog) Friendly**(please see below or our FAQ page for rules and restrictions)
