The gated compound is within easy walking or biking distance to everything in Old Town Key West, located at the corner of Thomas and Angela Streets – two (2) blocks from the center of Duval Street. 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 five (5) house compound is private and secure with a 10′ x 30′ heated pool including a 5’x 10’ heated Jacuzzi. In addition, there is a private 8′ x 10′ heated Jacuzzi. There are brick walkways, and a 10′ x 40′ sun deck, including a stainless steel propane barbecue, chaise lounges for sunbathing and relaxing; and tables and chairs for dining. The design of the property lends itself perfectly to small gatherings of friends and family.
The landscaping is lush including various palms, Poinciana, Spanish limes, avocado, bananas, hibiscus, bougainvillea, haliconias, bromeliads, and orchids, brick walkways.
24 hour CCTV security system
The property has two (2) off-street parking spaces by the Main House – accessible from Angela Street; the spaces are available to all guests staying on the property – with priority given to guests staying in the Main House, assuming they have a car(s). There is also a space on the west side of Thomas St, mid-way along the property fence that is actually a driveway – you may park there and you will not be towed. The sign is there to discourage people from parking, since it is a driveway – however, the space is available for any guest staying on the property on a first come first serve basis. Finally, there is on-street parking along both sides of Thomas St, but if you park on Thomas St., be sure not to park in a space identified as “RESIDENTIAL”, or you may get a parking ticket. (Park in a space that does not have writing contained within – undesignated.)
Chickens and Roosters
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!
