Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Whitehead House is a unique two-story single family attached home nestled beside the Audubon House in Old Town Key West. Hidden behind the most photographed "prohibition fence" in Key West, this three bedroom, two bathroom home includes a large sunny pool and patio as well as off street parking (1 space for normal-size vehicle). An outdoor table with umbrella provides space to unwind while grilling your fresh catch. Collect ripe star fruit from surrounding trees and enjoy this unique treat right from your own yard!

Upon entering the house you'll discover lots of open space for your group to be comfortable and spread out. Two dining tables provide ample seating for meals next to the kitchen. The kitchen and dining spaces are decorated in bright and eclectic decor which reflects the world-traveled taste of the owner. The country style kitchen is equipped with appliances and features open storage shelves.

The relaxed living room is surrounded by bright sunny windows and offers comfortable seating for your entire group. Gather together for a game of cards, a classic movie or to review your exciting day of Key West adventures.

Simple bedrooms give this home a relaxed Key West feel. Just off the dining area downstairs are two bedrooms with a shared bathroom. The upstairs bedroom offers plenty of windows for natural lighting and includes bathroom en-suite, closet space and French doors opening to a small balcony that overlooks the pool.

This basic, no- frills home is best suited for those looking to be "in the mix" of Duval Street. Whitehead House is a comfy place to relax together with an unbeatable and convenient location. Please note that due to the close proximity for lower Duval Street bars

there can be latenight noise.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall good experience. The property is what we expected... great location with easy access to evertything (especially Grunts and Garbos next door), and the pool area is large and a welcome respite from hot days. While the house has plenty of space, it is tired and in dire need of updating. Rent Key West staff were friendly and helpful as usual.

Reviewer Comments:

Staying at the Whitehead House was once again a very enjoyable experience. It was our 4th time renting the house but the first time our daughter & granddaughter were able to come along. In the heart of Old Town it is the perfect place to stay. The addition of the free bus made it easier to get around.

Reviewer Comments:

I am in the car right now driving home from our stay at The Whitehead House. We are three couples that vacation annually in Key West. This was our second year staying here. We love it! Yes, you have to be prepared, the two downstairs bedrooms are small and share a bathroom room and it is noisy at night. However, the uniqueness, spaciousness, pool and perfect location make it worth the nighttime noise. In fact we enjoyed sitting outside, relaxing by the pool and listening to the music. Bring earplugs if you are in the upstairs bedroom and you will be fine. Also, Rent Key West is easy to work with. If it is available for our next vacation we would love to go back. If you like being in the middle of everything this is perfect. If you want a quiet spot, this is not for you.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at the house for a week. It was a nice place. Super close to the bars and Duval St. Check out Amigos for tacos - they're great. The Key Lime pie at the Key Lime Pie Bakery right around the corner was the best we had. Great location. Overall, I was happy with the rental and would recommend it. The following bad points were not so horrible that I wouldn't recommend it. Here are the negatives: - I was allergic to the house. I have a bad dust mite allergy and coughed every time I laid on the furniture/beds. I had to medicate just to get 6 hours of sleep a night, and my husband said I sounded terrible from my coughing fits. This would be the only reason I wouldn't return to this house. - The furniture was old and our friend broke a bed just by laying on it. - If you don't tolerate noise well, this isn't the place for you. You can hear the bars quite clearly and the noise counties to well after midnight. I didn't mind since I wear earplugs to drown out my husband's snoring, so this was a non-issue for me and we were up till midnight every night anyways. - The pool wasn't heated. My friends rarely got in because they said it was too cold. I must be a polar bear because it was fine for me. 80 degrees during the day and a water temp around 65-70 is fine for me. - The downstairs shower was tiny and made of wood. It reminded me of my showers in Afghanistan except that it didn't run out of hot water after 5 minutes.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, our vacation rental experience was excellent, despite a few bumps along the road. The bumps involved a problem with a short-circuit in the water heater that was caused by a previous repair to the property, and it caused the 1st floor shared-shower to be temporarily unusable. After a few days to narrow down and pinpoint the problem, it was all taken care of. The staff at Rent Key West did a fantastic job of addressing our problem and doing everything in their power to get it taken care of.

Reviewer Comments:

We started off with a rocky start, arriving to Key West and unable to use the parking spot for the first two days due to a street festival closing Whitehead St., however, the people at Rent Key West were so helpful/accommodating, they came and helped us carry out luggage to the house, they paid for us to park at the Westin parking garage - they were just awesome! Thank you for making us feel at home! The house was very unique. There really isn't any privacy in the bedrooms, upstairs is a loft with NO door, downstairs has shutter doors, so privacy can't be your #1 priority. We wish the pool was heated, but we still ventured in even though it was cold! The washer and dryer was great, plenty of towels, too. Great living area, plenty of seating, etc.
