This recently-restored historic Conch house is an excellent vacation home. The kitchen and bathrooms have been redone, but still respect their historic roots. There are antique Dade County pine walls and floors throughout the house. The open-concept kitchen, living room and dining area have fantastic glass doors which create loads of natural light under a vaulted ceiling as well as convenient access to the outdoor deck area. The new kitchen offers brand-new appliances, including dishwasher, microwave, full oven/stove and refrigerator with crushed ice and water in the door. Brand-new garbage disposal and commercial grade Maytag 2000 laundry facilities are added conveniences. Central air conditioning is a luxury enjoyed in only the best historic rentals, including Mango Cottage. The natural wood features continue through the kitchen with custom maple kitchen cabinets with glass doors. There are smart TVs in each bedroom and a 42 inch smart TV in the living room. All TVs come with HBO and Netflix streaming capabilities. High-end furnishings and antique pieces add to the cottage feel of the home, including the wonderful collection of antique swimsuits in custom shadowboxes.
All bedrooms have brand-new plush Simmons AirCool ComforPedic memory foam mattresses.
The master bedroom has a king bed with an en suite bathroom, the second bedroom has a queen bed. There is a great loft which is accessed by funky alternating ship-style stairs, custom-made as well. The loft has two twin extra long beds with custom storage drawers beneath and of course a smart TV for your guests. The brand-new bathrooms boast custom tile work in the showers and on the floors.
This fantastic home is located on Varela Street and is in a wonderful residential neighborhood just a couple blocks from Fausto's Food Market and a short walk to Duval Street. It is also just a short walk to Higgs Beach, the White Street Pier and Key West Garden Club's Civil War Fort West Martello.
The outdoor patio offers a wonderfully warm hot tub, ideal for the cool Key West evenings along with outdoor dining for four under umbrella shade, as well as two comfortable lounge chairs for working on your Key West tan. The comfortable chairs on the front porch invite you to enjoy early-morning cafe con leche from nearby Sandy's Cuban Cafe while perusing the local newspaper or just enjoying the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. We are starting construction on a private pool in July and will be completed by the end of September
