Overview

About the property

House, 1 bedroom sleeps 2.

Tucked away in an inviting compound you'll find a blissful retreat called Namaste; a tranquil and relaxing one bedroom Balinese style home . The quiet compound is located just one block from Duval Street combining the best of both worlds for relaxing and taking advantage of all that Key West has to offer. Within 2 blocks you'll find Key West classics like The Bull, Sloppy Joe's, and Hog's Breath as well as a plethora of delicious restaurants. Venture just a short distance further to Mallory Square or the famous Historic Seaport. It's easy to see why this location is unbeatable. You do not need a car at this location (there is no parking provided) everything is walking distance or a quick bike ride away! The shared compound, of 6 total homes, features a winding brick pathway surrounded by tropical foliage and flowers that lead to a free form unheated pool tucked away in the far side of the gardens. Take a refreshing dip, lounge and catch some sun, or enjoy a good book while being surrounded by beautiful trees and plants. This truly is a relaxing outdoor oasis! Enter through the front gates and walk through the gardens along the pathway as you toss your cares away. Upon entering Namaste's door you'll be greeted by a private courtyard. An small outdoor dining table is surrounded by bamboo, vibrant tropical flowers, lush green plants and trees creating a private outdoor oasis. Meditate on the relaxing sound of the garden's water fountain, take in the scent of aromatic flowers or enjoy a nourishing breakfast among the plants and wildlife. Inside the cottage tranquility and harmony continues with calming hues contrasted with dark wood and reed ceilings. Plenty of windows throughout provide natural lighting and enjoyment of the outdoor gardens from indoors. French doors from the tranquil blue and green living room open to the garden for the ultimate indoor-outdoor living experience. The living room blends ocean tones with the comforts of home with a sofa, chair and television tucked away in a beautiful detailed armoire. The full kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and hood range. Just off the kitchen is a full bathroom with shower and slate tiling. Above the kitchen, accessible by spiral staircase, is a lofted retreat area perfect for yogis or readers looking to be warmed by the sun. A bonus rooftop patio is accessible from this lofted space for those seeking a private space for direct sunlight. The serene bedroom is sophisticated yet inviting with king sized bed, television, and plenty of natural light. The en-suite bathroom is spa-like with gorgeous teal glass tiling. In Asian cultures, Namaste means 'the spirit within me salutes the spirit within you'. We welcome you to experience tranquility and harmony at Namaste. Bedding : 1 king bed

Not far from the maddening crowd

  • 5 of 5

Namaste was a true sanctuary for us when we tired of the spring-break and snowbird crowds that descend this time of year upon the streets of Key West. My wife and I spent a recent week exploring the island by foot, from the bar-studded blocks of North Duval St to Smathers Beach on the Key's southern perimeter, and always were delighted to return to the lovely, orchid and palm-studded garden compound of Namaste, our peaceful and very private retreat in the middle of one of America's most raucous party towns. We made breakfast almost every morning in the well-equipped kitchen, then retired to the sun-splashed patio or rooftop deck to savor the last of our morning coffee before heading out for another day's walking adventure. A half block from Duval, and only a few blocks from Mallory Square, Namaste affords its occupants a Balinese-style oasis with all that Key West has to offer just outside the securely gated compound it shares with five other small residences. By late afternoon each day, we were ready to return and relax by the compound's private, free-form pool framed by giant, blooming mimosa trees and towering palms. The king-sized bed was comfortable, and the central air and ceiling fans allowed for a good night's sleep throughout our stay. The smart TV in the spacious living room allowed is to catch up on our favorite Netflix and Amazon Prime shows on nights when we'd had enough of the bar scene so close by. Things get wild on Duval St at night, but save for a fire engine siren or two, we heard none of it in this heavenly retreat. Our host, Dean Carlson, was always readily available should the need arise, but it didn't: everything worked, everything was clean, and we were as happy as the Street Roosters who awoke us each morning. If you go, say hi for us to Minnie the Cat, who resides inside the garden compound, complete with her own little house and litter box. Thanks for a wonderful week, Dean and Paul!

You'll never want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week with my husband as we were getting married in the keys. Let me just say, there truly are no words to adequately describe just how beautiful this place is. From the gorgeous flora all around the compound to the breathtaking interior of the accommodations itself, the place is just awe inspiring. With paradise all around you and Key West having so much to offer, you'll still find yourself happy to spend some time enjoying the patio area with gorgeous water feature or lounging poolside. That's if you can even muster the desire to get out of the bed in this place, comfortable doesn't even begin to cover it. I could honestly sit here and write a novel singing the praises of this place, but you really must experience it for yourself. Close to Mallory square and Duval, but far enough that you have privacy and don't have to deal with all the noise. Dean was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with as well, responding to any and all questions in a timely manner. Stay here, you will not regret it! This place definitely added to our honeymoon experience. By far the best place I have ever stayed at in Key West!

Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My current home is five times the size of this property but I would trade in a heartbeat to be able to stay in this lovely slice of paradise! The property is ideally located in the heart of Key West but you would never know that all the excitement is just moments away once you step through the gate and into the beautiful, peaceful gardens. The cottage is lovingly decorated with collected treasures that come together to create a wonderful atmosphere to relax in. The owners have done a wonderful job of providing everything that you might need. I would highly recommend this fabulous property and hope to return again soon!

Look no further for a private, couples getaway! I am forever spoiled by Namaste in Key West. The cottage and gardens are just perfect! We were celebrating a very special birthday and needed just the right mix of fun, relaxation, social life and peacefulness. I was convinced that what I was looking for in a getaway didn't exist in Key West until stumbling across Namaste.. I was a little concerned because of only one review, but now understand why. Namaste is a jewel that you want to keep to yourself!

great!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved this vacation! The house was beautiful and comfortable.Better than the pictures you see on the website. The house is so close to all the fun of Keywest and yet so private when your back to relax.The pool area was clean and nice….and we were by ourselves 5 out of the 7 days we stayed and it was hot! I would highly recommend this home . We didn't need to be in contact with the owner Dean because everything was perfect but when we arrived and left he was available and seemed professional and nice.Keywest is a special place where people are easy going and layed back….what a vacation spot should be.Stay at Namaste….you will be so happy when you get there!!!!
