In addition to being within easy walking and biking distance to Duval Street, and the best entertainment & dining on the island, the vacation property is located two (2) blocks from Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, the best beach and picnic area in Key West.


The City of Key West protects chickens and roosters, and considers them as part of the history and charm of Key West. As a result, Key West and many of the islands throughout the Florida Keys have free-range chickens and roosters. You will definitely see and hear chickens and roosters during your stay in Key West. Some visitors to Key West love them, and some visitors hate them - personally, I enjoy them best roasted, with plantains, and black beans and rice!

Getting around

The best way to get around Key West is on a bicycle, which we have on the property available to our guests for a nominal fee - no need to rent bikes at an offsite location. Keep in mind that the island is only 2 miles by 4 miles, and during season, its much easier to park a bike than a car! (...and a little exercise is not such a bad thing)

Response from the owner Sorry to hear that the house was not cleaned to your expectations - I wish you had said something during your stay - if the housekeeper did not do a proper job, my property manager would have gotten her back and made it right. Sorry for the inconvenience and I will make sure this does not occur in the future. At this point the only thing I can do is offer you another stay at no cost.

Response from the owner Thanks to the Florida Keys ASPCA, the neighbor has been told to remove/ uncage the roosters and chickens; and the owner has been told to unchain his dog, allow him to run, and give him some attention. Unfortunately pets are at the mercy of their owners, and people that cannot properly care for them, should not be allowed to own them. Again thank you to the Florida Keys ASPCA for the educating the neighbor, and allowing the chickens, roosters and dog to live better lives!
