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!

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.

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. :)"
