About this listing
In the heart of Old Town Key West, among the Conch houses, we are three blocks from Duval Street, a 10 minute walk to the sandy beach and around the corner from the best, yet least expensive meal in town, El Sibony Restaurant.
For 16 years we've provided a clean, quiet and secluded room, with a double bed, to those looking for a more authentic Key West experience. It has it's own private entrance and newly remodeled bathroom.
The room walks out directly to the pool area which has fountains, a fish pond and lush tropical fruit trees. We also have lounge chairs so you can relax by the pool.
There is a coffee/tea station next to the covered seating area so you can have a morning brew and start the day at a leisurely pace. We also provide a small refridge for left-overs, drinks and snacks.
The residential neighborhood we're in is quiet with a variety of "Conch" houses. Even so, we're centrally located: just three blocks from the Gallery District on Duval Street, the main drag,( yes drag), and a 10-minute walk to the sandy Higgs Beach.
The landmark Cuban Restaurant - El Siboney is one block away just around the corner, and Camille's, great for breakfast, is just two blocks away.
Many of our guests rent bicycles from a rental shop a 10-minute walk away, and you can park them in the front yard. On bikes all of old-town is within reach. You really don't need a car. But if you do, parking is easy - right in front of the house.
and finally......we have wireless internet.
Guest come and go using their own entrance. They may use the entire back yard including the pool, deck, common seating and lounging and coffee/tea/refridge station
Interaction with Guests
We live in the house in an entirely separate space, however we are accessible and enjoy at least one chat during the visit.
We are close to the action, Duval Street, but the few blocks away provide peace and quiet. Old Town Key West is a very special place.
The best transportation is walking from our house, the second best is renting a bicycle and then there's the car.
We would like our guests to come and go quietly. We work so whispers after 10 p.m.

I stayed with Jeri and Joe during a solo trip to Key West for my first AirBnB experience. The room was exactly what I needed. Joe was an excellent source of information when it comes to dining and entertainment on the island. The location is ideal, a bit away from the chaos of Duval St. so you can relax but still in walking distance for evenings out. Having my own set of keys to come and go as I pleased was a huge bonus and it allowed me to do my own thing. Overall, I would definitely stay with Joe and Jeri again amd I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a place to stsy in Key West. Their place was way better than staying at a hotel and a great firstexperience using AirBnB.
Amazing place and very friendly hosts! Everything we needed was there. Super clean. Honestly, a lot cleaner than a lot of hotels we've seen during our stay in florida. We haven't seen joe around but talked to him on the phone. Met gery and she was just lovely and explained us a lot about the town and things we could do. It has been my first airbnb experience and i will for sure try to visit them again if i get the chance to come back to the keys.
My friend and I just stayed with at Geri and Joe's place this past weekend when we were in town for the Hemingway Sunset 5k. The place was great!! We did not have the chance to meet Joe, but Geri was very friendly and provided a detailed list of possible restaurants and activities. The room was beautiful, as was the property! We had a amazing relaxing weekend!
Joe was away during our stay in this little corner of Paradise, but Geri's hospitality and warmth more than filled in any gaps there may have been...She and Joe have created a haven for any kind of traveler, replete with a private tropical courtyard, covered living/dining space and a pool. Geri is knowledgeable about all things Key West: she makes it her business to be current on what's happening, who the best service providers are, etc. My daughter and I were as thrilled with our home-away-from-home as we were with all of the other fantastic experiences we had in Key West.
Wonderful zen pool house located near everything in Key West. Geri and Joe are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend renting bikes to get around the island. Schooner Wharp is the bast local bar in the area! We had a lovely time!
