1800 Atlantic Blvd

Please get an instant quote by entering the dates on the upper right and compare to similar properties. You can book directly on this page. Just hit the 'Book' button. I live in the building year round (unit C-241) and do my best to make the process as painless as possible. 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.

This condo underwent a gut renovation late 2011 and is now handicap friendly. Located only two miles from Duval the area offers the best of both worlds, close to downtown without a lot of partying noise. 1800 Atlantic sits on 400 feet of oceanfront property. 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 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, biking, or rollerblading. Several chairs, coolers, and beach towels are available in the condo. Large living area compared to most condo's in Key West (1350sf).

I should point out the guest bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and the master bedroom does not. So the master runs a bit cooler than the guest room.

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. There is a link to my website towards the bottom of this page which contains the check in process 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.

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.

The perfect getaway with all the comforts of home

  • 4 of 5

Our expectations were high and were almost completely satisfied. Everything was so clean and neat. The condo was beautifully decorated and filled with all the comforts of home. We loved the stay and would come back for sure. The only issue we had was a smell when you first entered the condo. It was a musty wet dog smell and every time we left and came back it was there.

This condo was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We love 1800 Atlantic Blvd and have stayed here several times in the last 16 years. This condo is by far the nicest that we have had. We had a good view from the balcony, the condo itself was very nice, Tom was a pleasure to deal with and I love the view from the pool! We will definitely be back!

Very nice and clean. Perfect for 4 guests

  • 5 of 5

The property is nicely located away form bust Duval Street but a short car ride and you are there! Tom is very accommodating and available to answer any questions you may have. People were very friendly and many good restaurants to choose from. Loved the parrot perch and will stay there again on our next visit to KeyWest!

Pick this place for a perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with another couple and this place couldn't be more comfortable. New fresh pillows, mattress encasement so no worries about bedbugs. (one of the first things I check) Place was very clean with everything you would need and more. I also own a VRBO rental so have a very critical 'attention to detail' eye and I recommend Tom's place 100%. There was not one 'Ewww" factor our entire stay.

Likes>Spacious, CLEAN, comfortable, floor plan works well for two couples. pool and garden area are beautiful, deck and view were amazing, plenty of towels, there were extra toiletries and condiments/ coffee/spices probable left by other guests but nice to have just in case. The location was so much better than staying in the heat of the tourist downtown area...nice and quite letting you hear the sounds of the ocean and not the whooping and hollering of inebriated tourists. Walking distance to at least two great restaurants, Mexican and and Irish pub with good food. Short bus/cab or drive to the heart of the city. Beach is just a few steps from pool area, and friendly neighbors here also, along with covered parking.

Dislikes> We had to leave.

This is set up with your comfort in mind, Tom has supplied everything you would need for a stay in Key West, you really won't need anything but some food and adult beverages, everything else is waiting for you to make your own special memories. You won't be sorry choosing Tom's Parrot Perch, I took his card and will be recommending to all my friends. Splitting the cost between two couples makes this price a steal and the floor plan allows you to have privacy and space for both couples, access to deck from both bedrooms and living room is a nice perk too. Winner Winner...and best Jerk Chicken dinner is at Mo's, great place to eat!
