Tom's Chicken Coop: Nice Ocean View, Pool, Renovated, Close to Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 nights


Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Lower Florida Keys - Tom's Chicken Coop

Condo, One King, Two Twins, Sleeper Sofa, Air Mattress, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 - 6)

1800 Atlantic Blvd

This unit underwent a renovation late 2013 and is now handicap friendly. Master bedroom Beautyrest Hybrid mattress purchased 2015, $3,200.

Please enter your dates and click detailed price. The all inclusive rate including the 12.5% tax will appear. You can book it directly on this page. Just hit the 'Book It Now' button and set up an account. I live in the building year round (unit C-241) and try to make things as painless as possible. Please keep in mind although the maximum occupancy is six, four is ideal comfort wise.

Located only two miles from Duval the area truly offers the best of both worlds, close to downtown without the 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 the courts on one of three lighted tennis courts. Enjoy Smathers beach without the drive, located two blocks from 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. Return to 1800 Atlantic and gaze at the ocean while relaxing on your private balcony. Large living area compared to most condo's in Key West (1550sf). 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 we're 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. http://keywestrentalsat1800.com/

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.

Impressive Ocean views with every comfort of home

Tom s Chicken Coop is an excellent vacation rental. He has thought of everything you may need on vacation and all you have to do is to come with your swimsuit and shorts. The patio is like an extra room-a great place to eat supper or just some drinks! Kitchen and bathrooms are up to date with modern furnishings. The condo is very roomy for two couples. There are three TV s. Tom s condo is very peaceful and a great escape from the wild times on Duval Street!

This was our first time to Key West. The condo was perfect for us. Great location, not to close to town. The view was beautiful. The condo was clean and well stocked. Loved all the chickens. Pool was a great size and met a few of the neighbors. We found it very easy to get a cab when we didn't want to drive. Would love to come back again. Tom was easy to work with too.

Great stay during Fantasy Fest

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home base for Fantasy Fest. Just far enough away from the madness to enjoy the peaceful pool during the day, but only a quick taxi ride to the heart of the party. Fully stocked kitchen with plenty of utensils, etc. Publix/liquor store is just a few minute car ride away. Condo was very clean/well organized. We especially liked that there was a washer/dryer to take care of the wet clothes.

Parking was a breeze. One dedicated space in the garage and we had an extra vehicle with a parking pass in the general lot. Even during busy FF we found a space each time we came back. I would not drive anywhere towards Duval during FF. Parking is outrageous and if you plan to have a cocktail or two, that $10 cab ride saves the day (I think it was $4.50 a person). Building is well insulated (and the condo is on the top floor) and we never heard another person while we were inside. Owner was extremely responsive. We would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed in probably 20+ places in the Keys and have had some amazing places. But this place was above amazing. Spacious, well decorated, and AMAZING- GORGEOUS views from any room in the Condo. Waking up (still in bed) to that View was EVERYTHING!! Tom (owner) was a total sweetheart and very easy to work with. It was probably the 2nd easiest place I have ever checked into anywhere. (BTW #1 in both catagories was a 4 bdrm House off Duval, kinda hard to top that) Otherwise this would have def been #1.

The only downfall is that its not on the path of everything. But Rent your scooters (A & M is the best) and it'll make it a blast!! I will DEFINATELY stay there again and again. THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR HOME TOM!!

We had a fabulous 4 night stay at this condo and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves beautiful oceanfront views and well appointed accommodations. This unit is very comfortable, spacious and very neat. Fabulous kitchen and loads of extras. Couldn't ask for anything more!
