PETRONIA PALMS, JUST OFF DUVAL ST.SAFE! AND HAS A LARGE POOL!

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Key West - The Date Palm Cottage!

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

First I want to say. This is a MONTHLY vacation rental. With the many Scammers out there? I do not advertise on Craigslist. Welcome to Petronia Palms! and the 'Date Palm Cottage'! The sooner you book, The better the DEAL! The safest location in Key West!

NOTE: This is a monthly rental! Just wanted to give a heads up, that I don't use the calendar on this booking site, as I have multiple VRBO vacation rentals that may be available to you, too.

Was on the HGTV ( Home and Garden) show, 'Bang for your Buck'.Filmed April 2010.

Petronia Palms Is located just one block from the famous “Duval Street”! Which dumps out right at the ' World Famous 801 Bourbon Bar'. This lovely stand alone 700 sq. ft. cottage is located on Petronia Street Rear and just over 150 feet off the road by itself in it’s own enchanting little peaceful compound of 4 beautiful/cute cottages. The compound has a security coded entrance too.

You are within walking distance to most of what Key West has to offer. Although close to Duval, the cottage is a quiet escape, since it is set back in its own little world of peace. You can kick back, just outside your private French doors from the large living room next to the 12 ft. x 24 ft. shared pool. Or just relax on the decking surrounding the pool under the sun in day and the stars at night or under the large covered porch, which leads along the meandering brick pathways. A large Gas BBQ has been provided, so that you can prepare your favorite meats and foods.Even Hammocks provided for each cottage,too.We can even provide any special requests, such as running an errand for Wine, flowers, etc., some may require a small fee to do so.

The single story cottage will sleep 4 very comfortably and has a large living room, large private/separate bedroom with a King sized bed, a queen sofa sleeper with memory form mattress in the living area, nice sized kitchen, with the cottage covered in brand new 18 inch tile flooring , dining room and full bath , washer and dryer in its own private secured room. You can cool down with a dip in the pool,( or warm up in the winter ) or enjoy the new Central Air conditioning, within the cottage! AND, everyone has their own PRIVATE parking place, right infront the compound. Yes, everybody has a place to park! Unheard of in Old Town Key West...

IT IS VERY PRIVATE AND QUIET! PUTS YOU IN A PLACE OF PEACEFULNESS!

I have provided free DSL internet & wireless ( Wifi ), phone with FREE long distance use, and cable TV an alarm system too. And use of a safe at no additional costs. Its located in the heart of old town, this cottage is the perfect spot to enjoy the sites and sounds of historic Key West.

Enjoy the excitement of the tropical evening, night life, just a minute’s walk over to Duval Street. Not far from where Hemingway hung out at “Sloppy Joe’s”. You also get your own private front parking spot, right in front of the Petronia Palms compound and off the main street.

I have decorated the Petronia Palms cottages with carefully chosen colors, furnishings and fabrics, to remind you that you truly are in a tropical oasis, but with the Key West flare! The traditional Caribbean blues, yellows, greens and cottage style furnishings, make you feel as though you are in paradise, as you grab your favorite book and mix your favorite frozen beverage, in the fully equipped kitchen. Centrally located, you can bike or walk to the beaches or visit the special boutiques and restaurants up and down Duval Street!

This is it; paradise is waiting for you at Petronia Palms!!

Also I have a less priced condo in the Meadows at VRBO # 171894,# 208439 and # 249689 in Petronia Palms, too.And a Private home right next to Petronia Palms # 442437.And a Studio in Petronia Palms for the folks on a budget at #265376. and if you are looking for Kauai Hawaii? Look at VRBO # 152385.

Thanks!

About Ted H. Franse

Back in July of 2008 my girlfriend and I went back to Key West, because the previous stay was all work, converting one of my condos in the Meadows in Key West....Collapse

While we were there, the last day I was told about a compound one block off Duval Street on Petronia Street, that was not directly listed for sale, but was just awesome. So I asked my girlfriend to go, and said no way, because if I like it, I will start crunching numbers to figure out how to buy iy. I went alone and met with now the previous owner. Of course, I then went back and got my girlfriend to come back to check this piece of paradise out. Most folks that have lived in Kwy West, don't even have a clue that this compound is back there, off its own little un-paved street. The compound is so quiet and peaceful and totally tropical with all the Key West colors too. The Big pool was in great shape as the entire compound. So, for those next few months, lots of negociations and finally on October 1st 2008, I became the new owner.I gave it the name Petronia Palms and everything has been decorated to fit in with the Key West flair! Each cottage has its own personality and have been decorated to the max. I even have one with tons of Hemingway artifacts too. My handyman in Key West has become a welcomed sight to all that have stayed there. He has without my asking, taking folks fishing, boating, shrimping, trips to the store etc. He even brings the folks fresh fish after his big catches.

Ted H. Franse purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Ted H. Franse chose Key West

I have already been there 6 times since October 2008, doing lots of 20 hours days, providing lots of improvements to the entire compound. My next vist is set for May 1st 2009, to do more work. The compound is so peaceful. Who would think so, for being only a block or so from the Famous Duval Street. It is unknown to most the locals. I have heard comments, like, wow, I never knew this was back here. What a plus, to be off a one-way street and a private street off of Petronia Street. Sitting in the compound having a BBQ, swimming, sitting and reading a book, taking one of the 8 bikes provided for a ride or just sitting out on one of the many private decks for each cottage is a nice plus too. The entire compound is real lush with tropical plants and little cute artifacts around the entire compound. Too Cute! Even though each cottage is its own home, over time you get to know the others that are staying.Being right down the street to Duval Street, it is easy to get anywhere in mid-town and walk back home for a night-cap. It is its own little world away from the world.Pretty cool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"My friends and I stayed in the Queen Palm the week of June 20th. The pictures are exactly what to expect once you arrive! Ted was extremely easy to work with and Dale, his handyman, was just as laid back:) The decor in the cottages is a different world in itself, each one having a different tropical theme! We cooked out a couple of nights on the lovely deck and found the outdoor washer/dryer very convenient! The pool was so inviting and a nice wind down after a long day at the beach! Duval is right at your fingertips as are numerous bars and restaurants. Marti, our neighbor, was so hospitable and we enjoyed getting to meet her - - which is so nice living in such a cute little compound with close quarters, yet just enough privacy to feel like you're on your own island! We absolutely loved and this and wish we were there right now - - and not ole boring S.C. :)"

Nice Cottage

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed at Date Palms for eleven nights, and found it well stocked with a warm pool right outside our door. The location was perfect--only a block from upper Duval Street. Dale, the caretaker, was always obliging and so helpful. This little cottage sits among three others with a pool to share. We enjoyed the other tenants, and I was so happy my little dog was welcome, too. Thanks.

Queen Palm

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed in the Queen Palm cottage and loved it! The cottage was just the right size for us and our two small dogs. We enjoyed the tropical decorations and bright, cheerful colors. The location is perfect, it's a short walk to Duval but the place has a private, secluded feel. We loved the back porch, so relaxing to have breakfast outdoors in the shade or curl up on one of the hammock chairs with a good book! The owner was very nice and assisted us to book our last-minute trip. I doubt we could have gotten a better deal on such short notice and with our two dogs in such a great location! The property manager Christina was wonderful, she met us there with our key and some cold beer, a fabulous way to begin our vacation! She was also quick to assist us with a minor mishap we had during our stay. We had a great time and would definitely return again! :)

Quaint quiet and everything you need

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the queen palm for 4 nights for our 2year anniversary and it was really wonderful. The accommodations were great the cottage was fully stocked with everything you need to cook and make yourself feel at home. From dish soap to hand soap to beach towels, blender, brita, ice maker, all cookware...and so on. It was very convenient to have the bike access. They definelty need some tlc the one red one with the basket I rode the chain popped two times you have to be very gentle with them. They are probably 10plus years old. But they got us from point a to point b and was great not to have to walk everywhere. Otherwise the whole compound is pretty well kept up all the lush greenerier really made the stay even more enjoyable. You truly feel like your on an island far away from all the hustle and bustle. The location was great close to everything. We were able to park our car luckily because on street parking is a nightmare. Driving down there period is crazy walking scooter and bike is really the way to go. We would absolutely come back to these cottages the price is decent for what you get. The pool is a good size and pretty clean it's quite impossible to keep is very clean with all the leaves around. It was wonderful having the private deck and hammocks with the grill we put that to use. Overall we had a really great stay. It was kind of hard to find you really have to be paying attention once you are on petronia street. It's hidden pretty good and the driveway is very narrow. There is no check in process which is pretty nice and just the peace in quiet in General was great. Ted answered my emails pretty quickly with renting the cottage and if I had any questions. Thank you for the great place to stay I felt at home and I could easily live in something like that and be happy loving in that gorgeous area. For my first time going it truly was an awesome experience.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a nice time. As for Bikes, all were brand new and oldest one was 1 year old. But, I have found out the hard way, that most didn't seem to appreciate the free bikes and they would totally trash them. So, no more problem with free bikes. They have been removed. I was the only place in Key West that did this, and now I understand why all the others don't. I still provide free private parking and much more. Thanks for your feedback. The Owner Ted Franse.

We spent a wonderful week and had great accommodations! Mother Nature did not smile on us all the time but we loved where we stayed. The pictures on the website were very accurate and we felt very safe. We really appreciated the helpfulness of Christina! She told us good places to go and even helped us attain shrimp for the dinner we cooked in our cottage! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who would like to be close to the action but far enough away for some peace and relaxation!

This was our first Key West experience. Luck of the draw on this property. The description was just as noted on sight. Very clean, plenty of towels, great location. Easy walk to the action, but far enough away to be quiteand relax. Ted was easy to work with, and Christina had great info. on food, grocery store etc. Will to return in the future!! We flew into Key West & rented a scooter. Best choice of travel on the island!! My husband and I had a BLAST!!!

In addition, I also have other cottages at Petronia Palms on homeaway Property # 210550, Property # 248921, Property # 258192 and one in the Meadows at Property # 182589 .

Only one block off Duval Street and in its own peaceful secured locked compound. This is the safest part of Key West, also known as Solares Hill in Old Town. My compound is on the highest point in Key West at 18 feet, right on Solares Hill point.

This is in the heart of Historic Mid-Town, one block from all the main action on Duval Street, but the compound itself is centered in the middle of the block, so nothing can be heard. The best of both Worlds.

Golf: I provide Brand New Bikes with locks, lights, baskets at a very minimal charge too!
