Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Historic Seaport - Whitehead House

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.

Loved loved the house!! True key west feel with perfect location!!! Within walking distance of everything you need! The only drawback was the pool... Though beautiful and pristine WAY to cold to use!! Definitely needs a heater...but of a bummer being the yard was perfect for swimming and relaxing!

I've been going back to KW for 10 years now, staying at different condos every time. The Whitehead House exceeded my expectations. The location is great -- a mere mosey to Mallory Square for the sunset celebration and easy stumbling distance from Captain Tony's. I loved being right behind the Smoking Tuna because I enjoyed sitting in the back courtyard and listening to the performers there. You can hear them pretty clearly, as well as any bands playing at Grunts. I could see how that would amount to a miserable experience for people who are mistakenly seeking some kind of solitary respite while staying close to the action. Not me. I loved it. The facilities are nice. I love that the place has plenty of quirk and charm -- that's what you get with a proper KW condo! Chances are, you won't be spending much time inside because, well, why go all the way to KW and hole up inside? I did, however, spend a lot of time in the back courtyard. I sat under the pitch apple tree by the pool and enjoyed the salt air. I garnished my bloody Marys with star fruit from the star fruit tree. I relaxed. I wandered about KW and got back to home base rather easily before heading out to wander around again. I highly recommend this place... that is, unless you are seeking to book it when I'm seeking to rebook it next year. In that case, you should look elsewhere. ;)

This was our second time to stay at Whitehead House. The property could certainly use some maintenance/upkeep and improvements. But the location simply can't be beat. The house is quite comfortable and the pool is great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to review Whitehead House. Your feedback is important to us. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. As for general maintenance and improvements, we greatly appreciate your feedback. This is a basic, no frills home and priced well below other high end 3 bedroom properties we have. We just had the pool re-surfaced this month and will continue to make improvements as we can. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to see you again!

Reviewer Comments:

Overall it was fantastic. Rentkw was easy to work with and the keys were in the lockbox as directed. (wish they'd ask how many sets I wanted instead of having to go back to the office for a 3rd set) The house is very quaint & very "Key West" like. We didn't mind that it was not necessarily all "upgraded". However, a few items I will mention. The pool is NOT as it appears in the picture. I even asked about it due to some older reviews and was assured it had been taken care of. I requested by phone on Sunday (was told it would be noted) and then again on Monday requested that it be cleaned. It was finally cleaned on Tuesday. The trees, etc need to be trimmed to keep so much debris from falling into the pool as well as on the outside furniture. Some of the furniture isn't useable due to the tree. Even after cleaning, the pool is simply not inviting ---It needs to be resurfaced bad!! The master upstairs is lovely as well as the bath. It simply doesn't have a door to allow any privacy! The two bedrooms down are fairly tiny, which wouldn't be terrible, but the one doesn't even have a closet or any hooks, etc to hang any clothes. That bathroom is very tiny to share. The washer/dryer being outside and in a "cellar" type room was a bit tricky to even find & spooky to say the least! Especially at night! A laundry basket might help. The furnishings were nice and comfortable. Supplies of towels and kitchen were very nice and plentiful. There were concerns about noise on prior reviews due to the close proximity to Duval, but that was not an issue with us and we enjoyed the handiness.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your candid review of your recent stay with us. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us, as we strive to improve with each and every stay. We have brought over a laundry basket for the property and will be putting up some hooks in the small bedroom thanks to your feedback. I am happy to say that the pool is scheduled to be re-surfaced in October. Our main priority is to be able to offer a clean, comfortable, well maintained property, and have our guests enjoy their stay with us.

Very enjoyable stay. Clean and neat. Bed linens pristine and comfortable. Loved the pool and location of the home. We did use ear plugs at night, but the noise from Duval St ended at 1:30a so all was good. The air conditioner stopped working late Sunday on Labor Day weekend - and 2 HVAC guys came out to repair immediately! That was great service - and we were so happy. IF there is anything I would add to the home - it would be hooks in the bathroom to hold towels or clothes. Very minor I know. LOVED this rental. It felt like home.

Reviewer Comments:

Rented this property for the location and that was great. Description of this property was not accurate, this was not a private house. The house has someone else living up front, no one should have to rent property to have someone remind you on occasion about making sure you leave enough room for parking. The description need to be updated to give renters an option if they choose to still rent.The overall inside of the house need some TLC. I believe the owner is offering a rustic look but there was cracks in the concrete floor' ground floor commode need to be replace rocks when you get up. Let me emphasize no one in my party carried a lot of weight. Pool filter system ran great two day prior to our departure, pool cleaners decided to change the filter and you could now see the water circulation.

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the location of Whitehead House, as it is in the heart of all the action here in Key West. As for the description of the property, we do feel it is very accurate. The description of this property on our website states "Whitehead House is a unique two-story single family attached home" and "This basic, no- frills home is best suited for those looking to be "in the mix" of Duval Street". The house is attached to another residence, but the home, pool and outdoor space are private to our guests. We greatly appreciate your feedback and hope we can find you a better fit for your next stay in Key West.
