Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Uptown/Upper Duval - Sunshine Daydream

2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom - Spacious House & Outdoor Living Area W/heated Pool

Sunshine Daydream is a recently renovated weekly vacation rental in the heart of the Gallery District of Old Town Key West. Conveniently located on the quiet end of the island and only half block off of Duval St, the house is walking distance to galleries, shops, restaurants and the southernmost beach is a short 3 blocks away.

Please note, the house is only rented through HomeAway/VRBO.

The open floor plan and high ceilings make for a spacious living space with 2 bedroom (1 King, 1 Queen), 2 bathrooms. The wall of French doors in the living room opens up to your own private heated saltwater pool, surrounded by tropical foliage and bamboo fencing. The large updated kitchen includes stainless appliances and granite counter tops. There is a desk and sitting area off of the master suite with French doors opening up to the pool. The generous sized front porch offers an additional sitting area to enjoy the Key West sunshine. Don't worry about parking; the house includes an off-street parking space.

About Jim

Owners, Jim, Kevin their boxers Bo and Belle, moved to Key West from Madison, Wisconsin in 2011. The ability to work remotely allowed us to escape the cold Wisconsin winters.

Jim purchased this house in 2011

Why Jim chose Key West

After vacationing in Key West and loving to be able to walk everywhere, the hunt began for a house in Key West. Sunshine Daydream had a great location, 1/2 block off of Duval, close enough to the action, but yet on the quiet end of the island and great outdoor space. We made it our primary residence until 2014. It is only as of recent that we converted it to vacation rental to be able to share the home and experience of Key West with others.

We are fortunate to only live a couple blocks away and are able to manage the house ourselves.

What makes this house unique

Of all things about the house, we love the front porch. It is a great place for a glass of wine and to people watch (it is also Bo's favorite as well). Our second favorite would be the living space that opens up to the bamboo fenced backyard and pool.

Awesome house & location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 9 amazing nights in this house. It's nicely updated, CLEAN, and very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you'd need to make whatever is on the menu. We loved the smart TVs because we were able to use our Netflix account easily on them. There were tons of towels - not the cheap ones - to use for the pool and for the showers. The home was so cozy we didn't want to leave! Though we were extremely close to Duval, you wouldn't know it by the noise level. The back patio and pool area is so nice. With all of the trees and foliage, you truly feel tucked away into your own oasis. We rented bikes for a week, and found this was the best way to get around. We also got week long passes to the Sanctuary Yoga studio 1/2 block south of the house. We highly recommend that place, as well as the amazing french cafe we would visit almost daily, La Grignote. Other favorites were The Flaming Buoy, Latitudes (get the Key West Colada plus anything on the menu - it's fantastic), Hot Tin Roof, and Carolines. We would definitely return to this home!

Jim and Kevin never fail to disappoint. My family and I have been coming to Key West since 2004 and have stayed in a large variety of places all over the island, but we have found our permanent vacation rental. This was our second stay at Sunshine Daydream and the first with our dog. Already looking forward to our third stay there next year. The house truly feels like a home and is at an amazing location.

Thank you Jim & Kevin

  • 5 of 5

We rent vacation homes every year. Sunshine Daydream is by far the best experience we have had. Jim & Kevin from start to finish were outstanding. We cannot wait to get the chance to rent this home again.
