Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Sea Biscuit – Completely renovated in 2011. This home is ready for you to enjoy. The main house has 2 bedrooms (1 king bed, 1 queen bed) and two new bathrooms. The great room and private pool were all newly constructed. There are guest suites that open onto the pool; one suite has a queen bed and bath and the other has a king bed and bath. This arrangement is perfect for traveling with friends or family ….. you can share the common living space while enjoying the privacy of the separate cottage.

The main house great room has a full kitchen and a sliding glass wall that opens to the outdoor living space and the pool.. The yard and pool are quite and private… you will be able to relax and enjoy your coffee or margarita with your party.

The house is just steps off of Duval St. It is at the Southern end of Duval in the Gallery District. The location is close to the great Key West shopping, restaurants and nightlife… but away from the tourist crowds. The Southern Most Point and a public beach are 4 blocks away. So when you want a break from the pool, it is a quick walk to the beach.

I recommend that you contact me to discuss the property and your desired dates before booking. I generally do weekly rentals from Saturday to Saturday. I keep the calendar up to date, but there are changes from time to time. Also, I may be able to help you reduce some of the payment and other fees. You can contact me via the "Send Email" option.

Keywords: Cottage Home, Separate Guest or Master Suite, Romantic Spot with Private Pool, In the Quiet Gallery District off Duval St.

Beautiful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on VRBO don't do this house justice. It is a beautiful house & close to shopping, great restaurants, & the beach. Highly recommend.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect is the word that comes to mind. We went on our first family vacation in many years and we went with our grown children and significant others and it was perfect! Everyone had their own space with 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. The big hit was the outdoor space and especially the dipping pool. It was used more than we ever thought we would use it. The kitchen was not only beautiful but well stocked with everything you need from glasses to dishes to pots and pans and coffee maker. We had every breakfast and many of our lunch and dinners at the beautiful poolside dining table. Location was perfect. Close enough to Duval St. and all restaurants and bars but on the quiet end of Duval St for peace and quiet. I would recommend it and would definitely go back again!

Great Location Great Property

  • 5 of 5

My only complaint is that I didn't read the contract and the fees that the owner incurred for using HomeAway get deducted from the 500$ deposit so you end up get 348$ back... but seriously if that's the worst thing I have to say after 7 days I'd have to say Sea Biscuit is a real AWESOME place to stay! I would totally recommend this place as well as I plan on staying again!

Owner's Response: Before I accept a reservation I ask for the potential renter to review my contract with the VRBO fees. I have increase my fees 3 percent to cover my cc fees last month. Starting 2018 the renter will not be charged the 3 percent cc fee from me. I will just be charging the international cc when needed. The renter will have to pay the 6 percent VRBO fee when you book threw them instead of me.

Lovely home in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Great location, walking distance to all the hot spots. Accommodates four couples or large family and if your looking for a private bath for each room this is the place. Good amenities, great to have the grill for the fresh caught fish. No area inside for large group to eat. Outside covered area with fan provides comfortable breeze. Pool was cloudy everyday with the exception of about 24 hours after the maintanence crew visited. Read the contract carefully!!!! We were charged an additional fee for booking with VRBO- it states this in the contract but is not well defined (cost us an extra $175) and we had no idea we were not paying the owners directly through VRBO. Disappointing, we have rented many VRBO properties and have never paid an additional fee associated with payment method.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry about the cloudy pool. We drained the pool this week and the salt cell was replaced to remedy the problem. Regarding the VRBO fees. There was a policy change at VRBO / HomeAway last year, VRBO added an option for renters to book through VRBO instead of directly with the owner and the buttons are prominent on the VRBO website. If a renter uses the "Book it Now" option, VRBO chargers the renter a fee. VRBO discloses this when the price is displayed. There is still an option to contact the owner directly as an alternative. I have added the referenced language to my contract to make sure that it is clear that VRBO charges this fee to the renter as the Owner does not have control over the VRBO fee structure. I have an asterisk stating the renter is responsible for all book it now fees and credit card fees. Since VRBO / Homeaway was bought out last year their format changes on a monthly bases. The property owner does not have control of the booking fees unless the renter books directly with the owner. If you book directly with the owner and use a check you can save the 6 percent VRBO fee and the 3 percent credit card fee. Effective 1/1/18 my prices will include the 3% credit card fee.

Great place. Compact but VERY comfortable. We had 5 adults, more than enough room for us.

Great location, 30' from Duvall st. Small pool perfect for a cooling dip. Apparently recently renovated, excelent condition, spotless snd everything worked. ;)

Wonderful location, Beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property was great. We rented bikes for the week and had easy access to the entire island. The modern kitchen had everything we needed for meal prep. The mattresses were all comfortable. The furniture was in clean and excellent condition. The windows and doors are also high-quality, because it was always quiet at night even though Duval street was right outside the door. We loved the layout - it was plenty of space for 8 of us, and the washer and dryer (2 of each) was also a convenient amenity to have. This is a place we'd rent again.
