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. Google Toms key west vacation rentals to find my web 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.

Beautiful condo in Key West

  • 5 of 5

Tom's Parrot Perch is a beautiful condo in the Key West area! Near Smathers beach and only a taxi ride away from Duval street! The condo is nicely remodeled and the pictures do it justice! It seemed larger than expected and there were enough supplies to get you started for your stay! The beds were very comfortable and the condo has about anything you would need for your Key West vacation! The condo also provides covered parking if you have a vehicle. Tom is very helpful and also lives in the complex so he's always nearby if needed!

We will definitely consider his rentals for future Key West stays!

We had a fantastic time. Everything was exactly as communicated. Everyone was so friendly in our condo complex and the security entering and exiting the bldg was exceptional. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone.

Great Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed in Tom's vacation rental at 1800 Atlantic Blvd. Having stayed at a number of different VRBO properties, Tom has the rental provisioned with everything you need. The condo is decorated beautifully. The location is great, away from Duval and quieter in nature, but convenient to get to everything. Having stayed at other properties that didn't meet our expectations, we really appreciated Tom's efforts and all it has to offer. Would stay there again in the future. The only negative was how to get into the secure building to get the keys. We waited outside for 30 plus minutes for someone to happen to come out. This could be improved. Other than than, it was perfect. Thank you Tom.

Owner's Response: 😳�. So sorry that happened to ya! This is the first I'm hearing about it and I've never heard of such a thing happening in the past. All the rentals in the building (not just mine) use this check in process. Security's number one job duty is to answere the mobile phone. Usually it is seamless and I provide my mobile buzzer number as a back up. I don't see any missed calls from that day on my end but maybe I was in the elevator or something. Apparently the prefect set of circumstances were in play. An isolated incident that I regret you had to go through. Glad the trip was good otherwise at least!

The property was amazing! It is updated with all the necessary items needed for a nice stay.

  • 5 of 5

When we walked into the Condo, we couldn't believe our eyes. We were very impressed with all the little touches to make it feel like a home and not a hotel. It was beautiful with everything we needed for a fantastic vacation. Tom even provided soap, shampoo, chairs and towels for the beach along with beach toys for children. We loved sitting outside in the morning with our coffee and watching the sun rise. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Next year, God willing, we will be back and looking at Tom's Parrot Perch again. Thank you Tom for making our vacation perfect. The tips you gave us about places to go, restaurants, parking and whom to see about tours was great. We took your advice on many of these tips.
