Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Located in the heart of Old Town, we are three blocks from Duval Street, a 10-minute walk to Higgs Beach, and around the corner from the best, least-expensive meal in town--El Siboney Cuban Restaurant. We suggest bicycling around Key West. Rentals from We-Cycle Bike Shop can be delivered to our door. Two blocks away, The Duval Loop offers free air-conditioned bus service 7 a.m. until midnight. We also offer a link with recommendations for excursions, tours, & restaurants.

The space
For 23 years we've provided a charming, clean, quiet, & secluded room with private entrance, newly-renovated bathroom, and a double bed to those travelers looking for a more authentic Key West experience. Just steps away from your door is the pool and your own deuce table and chairs.

The pool and deck are surrounded by a lush tropical garden complete with a mango tree, fish pond, and fountain. Make yourself at home in the lounge chairs or the comfy chairs overlooking the pool where you can enjoy a leisurely morning brew or a glass of wine at the end of another beautiful day. You'll find a Keurig coffeemaker and tea kettle, along with a selection of coffees and tea, on the covered patio as well as a small refrigerator for your left-overs, drinks, and snacks. We provide beach towels and WIFI access.

Guest access
We share your concerns about safe travel. See updates below.

Guest come and go using their own private, locked entrance. They have access to the deck, pool, lounge chairs and cushioned chairs overlooking the pool, the deuce table and the coffee station all day and into the evening.

Other things to note
You will be staying in Geri and Joe's private home. It is not a condo or apartment and the pool is not shared, its just for our guests. We have a single tenant upstairs whom you might run into. She is extremely quiet and works days.
We will wipe down gate handles and doorknobs throughout your stay, and provide disinfectant wipes or spray so that you can wipe down handles and knobs as you come and go. According to Airbnb guidelines, we will allow 24 hours between reservations, during which time, Jana, our housekeeper, will clean and disinfect the room, bath, doors, and surfaces according to the Center for Disease Control protocol. The mattress pad, towels, and linens will be laundered and put away and another clean pad, towels, and linens will be used for each new guest. Individual-use soaps and shampoos will be available.
As always, we will be accessible throughout your stay either by text or phone, or in person for a distance chat if you feel comfortable with that. We will be following social distancing recommendations of 6+ ft. and ask that our guests do the same for everyone’s comfort and peace of mind.
So as we look forward to hosting more travelers who come to Key West to experience the magic of our beautiful island, we assure you that we will continue to offer the same hospitality and accommodations so many of our guests have written about with renewed mindfulness of our mutual safety and well-being. Feel free to contact us if you’d like to talk to us further.

Looking forward to seeing you in Key West!

My wife, Geri, and I moved to Key West 23 years ago from upstate New York. I am a carpenter and builder. I throw pots, have designed a house, made cement sculptures along with concrete counter tops, and recently have developed an appreciation for opera. I enjoy riding my new bike around the island, playing tennis, and sailing. Geri has been a banquet chef, wedding cake baker, yoga teacher, and for the past 10 years, a concierge and manager of a local bed and breakfast. She fell in love with Italian a few years ago and has been painstakingly studying it every since. As a Florida Notary, she officiates weddings, elopements, and vow renewals--(in English only!) We both love history, traveling with friends, and staying with other Airbnb hosts, most recently in Havana and Viñales, Cuba. We often host potluck slide shows of our travels with friends and invite them to share photos and stories of their trips. Geri and I are available to our guests, but respect their need for privacy and alone-time. We provide complimentary concierge services for snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, sunset sails, jet-skis, parasailing, and guided tours--practically anything you can think of doing on the island. Old Town is walker friendly, but we recommend riding bikes as the best way to get around. We can arrange bike rentals--delivered to the house upon arrival. Our home is in the heart of Old Town. Our guest bedroom opens onto the deck and pool. The room has a private entrance, full-size bed, and modern private bath with tiled shower. WIFI, dark-roast coffee, a selection of teas, bottled water, refrigerator, hair dryer, & pool towels are provided.
