About the property

Upon waking in the morning we hear the murmuring of tropical birds , feel the gentle sea breezes and the fragrance of jasmine. When we go out from the apartment we can see the sea across the street and catch the sun rise if we wake early. Relax with a drink on the south facing balcony that looks out onto a spacious enclosed garden with palm trees, bougainvillaea and 2 pools. Walk across the street to Smathers Beach for swimming and and snorkeling. Later take a stroll in Old Town or visit Fort Taylor Park and its beautiful beaches. In the evening pick up some fresh shrimp to prepare a gourmet meal in our full kitchen with the freshest seafood on the east coast. Or if you prefer head for downtown where there are literally dozens of sophisticated and alluring restaurants. Key West is the ultimate winter beach destination.

About Bruce Davis

My name is Bruce Davis and I have been going to Key West with my wife for over 30 years.We have been using this wonderful condo as a winter getaway for as long as I can remember.I love to look out over the garden from the balcony and do watercolors as the sunsets. Sometimes we go out to Mallory Dock in the evening and take in the street shows,cats jumping through rings of fire,drummers of every persuasion,jugglers,artists painting their fantasies on the sidewalks:you name it they've got it!

Bruce Davis purchased this condo in 1983

Why Bruce Davis chose Key West

We bought this apartment because we feel like we can go to the Caribbean without having to leave the country.

What makes this condo unique

We love the fantastic blue-green water of Key West,the sunsets at Mallory Dock,strolling around Old Town with its picturesque buildings,the abundant flora and fauna of this very special tropical environment.

Please inquire for special rate for 6 month lease with no tax. It is a great opportunity to experience this lovely resort off season for less that half the normal rate.

Perfect Escape From The Polar Vortex

  • 5 of 5

This Key West getaway condo is a wonderful escape from the freezing temperatures of the northeast. I was here once before and noticed this time that there is a beautiful new ceramic tile floor which gives a bright airy feeling to the place! l loved also that the beach was right across the street, and from Key West by the Sea I could bike to most anywhere on island. The kitchen had everything I needed to prepare meals and after dinner on warm evenings it was great to be able to cool off with a refreshing dip in the pool which is just a three minute walk from the apt. It feels like heaven to wake up in the morning and walk through the lovely flowers and garden that surround the pool area. It's very convenient and easy to get around this complex with their elevators and push carts for luggage, groceries, and laundry. The location is very nice - only a quick trip to downtown by car, bus,or bike, but far enough away if you want to retreat from the hustle bustle of the main drag. Great place for adventure or total R&R. Only wish I could have stayed longer!

Great location in Key West

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Key West by the sea. The location across from Smathers beach was great. The condo had two beautiful pools and nice grounds and was a relaxing place to stay. The owner, Benjamin was very nice to work with and communicates well. The apartment was clean and had some lovely artwork. The bed was comfortable. Our small dog was welcome. Our only complaint, and it was a minor one was the couch in the living room was not too comfortable and the kitchen could use some updating. This is why we did not give 5 stars. Everything else deserved 5 stars and this did not detract from our stay. We enjoyed it so much that we are booking it again for next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan. The couch has a board under the pillows which is easily removed, some times if a guest sleeps there they prefer a firm bed. We do plan on updating some items in the kitchen. We hope that you will enjoy another vacation in Key West.

Condo living, on beautiful pristine grounds!

  • 5 of 5

Directly across from Smathers beach, with two large pools, two tennis courts and a bbq. Five minute drive to Duval St. The landscaping is gorgeous and extremely well maintained. The pools are cleaned daily. A great family feeling, with very friendly owners and renters.

Benjamin, the condo owner, is great to work with and gets back to you immediately.

Wonderful Winter Escape!

  • 5 of 5

It was a delight to spend a winter month in this cheerfully warm, tropical paradise! The apt. was bright, and artistically decorated with sculptures and colorful paintings on the wall. It has a nice balcony which overlooks the gardens and swimming pool. The owners were thoughtfull enough to leave a bouquet of flowers and some folding beach chairs for me to use. I enjoyed having my morning tea at the little table on the balcony while listening to the birds tweeting.

The apt. Location was great, literally across the street from the beach, a 10 minute drive to downtown Key West, yet a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle. I rented a bike and the shop sent a chauffeur to pick me up at the complex. It's very easy to bike into town if you don't have a car or just want the exercise and I loved walking along the sea wall across the street heading towards the airport where I saw a small sea turtle in the water, a baby shark, and all kinds of interestng fish!

I loved my stay in this apt and would go back in a heartbeat!

Great complex! Uncomfortable furniture!

  • 3 of 5

At first we loved it. Beautiful grounds and pool. Friendly people. But coming home at end of day the furniture was hard and old. Bed was ok. Kitchen silverware was unmatched and falling apart. The TV sets were under 30". The grout on floor tile needed to be redone - stained and sloppily done. Balcony was cluttered with personal items. Weather was great. Stayed for the month of Jan 2017.

Owner's Response: The tile floors are new, the crack you saw was from the installation of the new stove. We were more than happy to send in the handyman in to fix it but you did not want us to. The apartment is pet friendly so we do not have furniture that is fussy, just attractive and according to other guests comfortable. This apartment is best suited for easy going guests that appreciate the atmosphere of art, good books and casual living. The items on the balcony were a few extra folded beach chairs, a beach umbrella and a sculpture stand with a decorative pot. My father Raphael Epstein was a well known sculptor in Key West and many of the works of art that fill the apartment he had created on the balcony.

Stepping Into Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my 3d winter vacation in this light, bright, and very artistically furnished apt. It's delightful to open the front door each morning and to see the beautiful orange - pink sunrise behind the trees. I've always found this condo to be very clean and comfortable and this time I found some new appliances in the already well-equipped kitchen.There was also the addition of a new flat pannel T.V in the living room!

The apt.location is great since the beach is across the street and it's just a ten minute drive to down town Key West and Mallory Dock. Everyone at the condo was very friendly from the neighbors to the maintenance personnel. The grounds and garden are beautifully maintained and it was so relaxing to sit out by the pool surrounded by the colorful hibiscus and palm trees.

The sunlight, flowers, sunsets,and turquoise blue water of Key West are unbelievable and I would often stay outside as long as possible to take full advantage of it. Since this is a gated complex I always felt safe and never worried about my car or returning at night after dark. Being on the second floor I really appreciated the big laundry/grocery wagons and elevators that are located at the base of the stairs. All I had to do was load the wagons with my laundry or packages and walk into the elevator - no schlepping.Life doesn't get any easier! It's like stepping into Paradise for while and I can't wait to go back.
