A Private Tropical Paradise ... is the feeling you get when you enter the pavilion of this award winning villa just a half block off Duval St. in Old Town Key West. I first visited this private home when it was featured on the prestigious Garden Home Tour of Key West which opens a few select private homes to the public. A total renovation created a stunning one-of-a-kind tropical water pavilion by bridging two cottages with a pool, spacious deck and lushly landscaped garden. The pool is made both mysterious and fantasy-like with beautiful glistening stones and a giant frangipani tree which drapes the pool. Just a few blocks from Mallory Square, steps from grocery shopping, excellent restaurants, popular clubs, the Historic Seaport, and tropical shops makes this one of the most requested and convenient accommodations in Key West. We are so pleased to offer it as one of the more unique properties available in Old Town.
The Pavilion Villa vacation rental home was re-designed to create a spectacular indoor and outdoor multi-level living space which is both elegant and playful. Enter the main cottage from the street side, and you’re immediately reminded you’re on an island by delightful tropical reef carpeting that adorably covers a charming historic staircase leading to the 2nd floor sleeping loft. Here you find a 1 ½ story dwelling which houses the living room, kitchen, three bedrooms, and a full bath with a beautiful indoor/outdoor shower room.
The inventive layout of the main historic cottage maximizes the use of available space, using every nook and cranny to offer something both functional and beautiful. Immediately inside the front door to your left, is the first bedroom with two twin beds that can be put together to make a king bed on request. Straight ahead of the front door is the small scale historic stair case which leads to a loft-style bedroom. This bedroom provides a queen size bed, and has an added feature of a roof-top balcony that overlooks the pool. Back downstairs is one more bedroom, with a king size bed, and an artistic Caribbean blue bathroom with a sunken tub and elaborately tiled large private indoor/outdoor garden shower.
Updated in December, 2015, the dining room, completely renovated kitchen, and beautifully furnished living room are towards the back of the main cottage, and are linked to the pool and deck through double sets of French doors. An outdoor dining table and chairs set just outside the doors serve to extend the living area to the outdoors to the pool and deck area which draw you to the second two-story cottage which is on the opposite side of the pool. Once on the deck pavilion, it is almost impossible to proceed to the back cottage without stopping to dip your toe in the pool, and take in the beauty of the garden. The private spacious deck has plenty of room for sunning and lounging. A second bathroom in the outdoor garden area, consisting of a sink and commode room, and tiled shower room, makes indoor/outdoor living fun and convenient.
Walk the deck past the pool to reach the second cottage at the back of this unique paradise pavilion. The back cottage has 2 full stories with the first floor set up as a sleeping and lounging area. There is also a large kitchenette and breakfast bar for convenience. The second floor has master bedroom with king size bed and full bathroom, and a spacious balcony which overlooks the pool and looks back towards the front cottage.
The design of this home makes it ideal for family groups or groups of friends. The pavilion-style plan provides two private buildings which are adjoined with a spacious outdoor living room for all to gather. It should be considered as an ideal location for a wedding party to reside, but not to stage the wedding. At the same time, the intimacy created by the garden pool pavilion make this unique home a wonderful location for a smaller group who want privacy and room to spread out.
This home is offered as an exclusive vacation rental in the most requested location in Key West. The property will not tolerate smoking inside.

My fiancee (now wife) and I rented this compound for our guests when we got married in Key West and everyone couldn't have been happier! Each property of the compound has a distinctive vibe with plenty of room for everyone to spread out and find their own perfect little spot to relax. The two large pools were also great and offered everyone plenty of options. We'd recommend these properties to anyone looking for a great location in Key West. We'll definitely be back in a few years!
Four couples stayed at this property for a week. It is tight quarters but it worked out well. It was nice enjoying our morning coffee on the back patio while we visited with "Mr. Bojangles" (the lizard previously mentioned in another review). The pool and patio are enjoyable. The location is perfect. One block from plenty of restaurants, not a far walk to the Harbor or South Beach. The outside shower was unique and refreshing. We did have trouble connecting to the wireless and the upstairs air wasn't working but the management & maintenance staff were quick to correct the problems. They were very helpful.
It was a great place to stay.
I just wanted to add an additional comment to my last review--It would be very helpful if the property had visitor information on what attractions to see around town & eatery information. We did stop at an "information center" after the fact, but it would be nice to have that information inside the home. Thank you.
This was a little smaller than what the pictures shown, but it was very cozy! We had a party of 6 & we had a great time especially being close to Duvall St.. We did have a visitor that we named "Hank"(large lizard) that came every other day--smile! What I will say is that there was adequate cookware there--very nice, but my changes to this property would be to get new mattresses for ALL rooms--too soft & an uncomfortable.
We had a great time at this house with ~5 couples. Its right around the corner from Duval in a great location. The house had everything we needed, bath/showers, lines etc. It doesn't offer a ton of privacy unless you are in the back house but that should be expected when you are staying in a house like this with so many people and not a 5 star hotel.. The pool and sun deck are great and the indoor/outdoor shower is really cool.
The beds are so soft you roll into each other, the front bed room is the living room with shutters as dividers. There is no privacy in this paradise. When it rains you can't use the shower as it is outside. The roof leaked when it rained. Would not stay here again.
There is a kitchenette in the back cottage that has a microwave, full refrigerator and dishwasher.
