Bedrooms 2
Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

King Bed. 2 Twin Beds. Sleeper Sofa In Master. Aerobeds. (Sleeps 6 Max)

This is arguably the best available rental unit at 1800 Atlantic and one of the better ones in Key West. No expense was spared in the renovation which took over half a year. The kitchen alone cost over $100,000 featuring blue granite counter tops imported from Brazil. The floor tile was imported from Spain. An audio dock is wired throughout the unit for your listening pleasure. Over half a million went into renovating and furnishing this million dollar plus condo. Once you enter the unit you will be amazed at the craftsmanship and view. There are so many gadgets and switches its almost confusing.

Located only two miles from Duval the area offers the best of both worlds; close to downtown without most of the party noise. An Olympic sized heated pool and spa sit ocean side surrounded by a lushly landscaped garden. Plan a picnic or barbecue in the shade of this beautiful garden. When you are done relaxing by the pool hit the courts on one of three lighted tennis courts. Enjoy Smathers beach without the drive. located only a few blocks from the building Smathers offers sailboat, paddle board, hobie cat, chair, and umbrella rentals. Parasailing is also available. An over sized sidewalk runs parallel along the beach for walks, jogging, and biking,. Several chairs, coolers, and beach towels are available in the condo.

Once I receive either an e mail or booking request I supply my cell number. With three condos calls from people looking to negotiate were getting a little out of hand so I took the number down.

Thank you for considering one of my condo's. Google Toms key west vacation rentals to find my web page which contains the check in process, more photos, and rental agreement.

Disclaimer: Renovation work is allowed at the building 9am - 5pm weekdays. Usually its quiet here but unfortunately there are exceptions. Neighbors give no warning of renovation work and even building management does little / nothing keeping us up to date on general work on the building. The safest bet is a hotel to avoid such surprises. Anything major that I see coming will give a heads up about though. Please keep in mind although the maximum occupancy is six, four is ideal comfort wise. I have it listed at six with small children in mind.

7. CANCELLATIONS - If a cancellation is made between the time of booking and 30 days prior to arrival the $100 deposit will be forfeited. The full balance is due 30 days prior to arrival. If a cancellation is made within the 30 days prior to arrival 50% will be refunded. Keep in mind this is only 50% of the base rate I would hold onto. NOT the grand total.

About Thomas Rechsteiner

I have lived in the building since 2005. I had planned on moving into this condo but changed my mind. It has a transient license which cannot be transferred within the building. A transient license is permission from the town to rent short term and they are a hot commodity in Key West.

Thomas Rechsteiner purchased this condo in 2013

Very nice . Incredible ocean views

  • 5 of 5

Few places like it on the island. The pent house view is of both sunrise and the sunset. We had dolphins and a shark in the water infront of the condo. Very nicely furnished, easy ride to southern most point and downtown. Overall very relaxing ..

Amazing condo, and you can’t beat the view!

  • 5 of 5

This is the fifth year I’ve come down to Key West, and this was by far the best place I’ve stayed. The view from the balcony (and from inside with all the glass doors!) is nothing short of spectacular. The condo had everything we needed, and the pool was huge! We came right after Hurricane Irma, and Tom was great about keeping us informed with the storm and its aftermath. He was great to work with on reservations, and making sure we had everything we needed. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Best view on Key West

  • 5 of 5

Tom's condo is gorgeous, beautifully appointed, well stocked, and the oceanfront view can't be beat. Tom was a gracious host and the place was immaculate when we first arrived. I will stay here for every visit.

Amazing condo with gorgeous views!!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this condo for our wedding/honeymoon, and we were not disappointed! The condo is very spacious (large living area with a sectional sofa and glass table with 4 dining chairs, stools for the counter too and a seating area in the master bedroom but the fan didn't work) and worked well for us and another couple. The master bedroom had amazing views and was surrounded with sliding glass doors for easy access to the balconies. We had coffee on the balcony every morning! The bed was comfortable as well. The closets were a little cramped with household items and baby things so it wasn't that spacious to put clothing, so we used a few drawers instead. The washer is tiny but we did small loads of laundry. I did send Tom (owner) a text about finding a broken glass in the cabinet and the sprayer next to the sink that was leaking. Tom responded quickly and thanked me for letting him know. Parking for one vehicle is provided in a secure garage with additional parking out front. The pool was very nice and accommodated a lot of people and there were plenty of lounge chairs for everyone. Overall this condo was very CLEAN!!!! We loved the location because it is away from Duval Street (which is fun but parking is a hassell and taking a taxi is $21-23 one way) so it is quiet and far enough away from the Craziness, lol. I would definitely recommend Tom's condo for anyone interested in staying in Key West for a vacation! We will be back!
