Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Old Town - Mango Cottage

Recently-Renovated Historic Old Town Home Within Walking Distance Of Everything.

Mango Cottage

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Yes we had a great time while in Key West as usual. The Mango Cottage was very nice as advertised. The house was fantastic! The central a/c was a great addition to the comfort of a rental property. The beds were very cozy, the baths were very nice and the kitchen was top shelf. I am a finish carpenter and have been for 25 years and noticed that the quality of materials and craftsmanship was excellent throughout the home. Overall I would give this property 5 stars and say it was by far the best property was have stayed at in Key West. We will return!

Perfect Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 ladies absolutely adored this little home for a weekend getaway. The décor in this place is beautiful - as a group of 4 women it was a major topic of conversation throughout the weekend. It is a cottage, but the use of space is amazing - closets in the 2 bedrooms downstairs including drawer space, small closets in the bathrooms with everything you could need from a hairdryer to toilet paper, bath towels and beach towels. It is clear from the moment you walk in that this home is cared for and maintained. I do have to say the loft area is tight (it's a loft so it should be) but the stairs are weird and realllllllly steep, even when you haven't had a cocktail, it takes concentration. That being said, it wouldn't be good for small children.

It was in a great location within walking distance to many restaurants (however we did cab it most of the time since it was still so hot). We rented bikes through the concierge - great plan because everything is an easy bike ride away!

We will be back and can't wait to return!

Perfect little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

As other reviewers have stated, this cottage is well located with high-quality finishes and a very comfortable interior. We only had 4 adults in our party and were glad that we did. The loft area is very tight and not suitable for those who want privacy or to sleep in because it was visible from the kitchen/living area and definitely not suitable for smaller children given staircase and open-air feel. The other sleeping areas were perfectly situated with lovely French doors to each room which had privacy panels, great TV service and ceilingfans. The bathrooms are whimsical and bright! The only thing I would ask for is a luggage rack in each room as there are only built-in drawers and small 1/2 closet, but for those that want to just use their luggage it would be nice to have it elevated off the floor. Super clean throughout!! :) The outside space is just enough and has all you need to entertain comfortably. Roosters roaming the streets are a charming accent to this fun area and got us up early enough to grab great breakfasts out. Sandy's is very convenient around the corner for call ahead - take out breakfasts! There is NO Uber service right now in Key West but there are several taxi companies which seemed perfectly fine. Due to extreme heat, we opted for taxi service to many of our dinners from Mango. For those that want a romantic meal check out Latitudes (Sunset Key) but make sure you get reservations in advance. You will be please with a stay here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to review Mango Cottage. We agree that the loft may be a tight fit for adults but perfect for family with teens that need the extra space that is why we show pictures of it. It seems you got to know Key West quite well and we hope you visit us again very soon. Key West Hideaways staff.

Mango Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage to stay in! Very beachy feel & decor, extremely clean. Beds comfortable, well stocked kitchen. Loved the cottage all around! Shower was small in the master and no bathtubs for those who may need to sit on a side and shave legs or just need to sit in general to bathe (small children, elderly) but not too big of an issue. The stairs to the loft were unique but a steep challenge to get bags up for me and going up and down. Had to be careful! Older children shouldn't have a problem going up and down, our teens loved it but I wouldn't let smaller kids go up there without an adult. We rented an electric open door cart and we didn't have a problem with parking even though there is not a designated spot for the cottage. There was always a space within 2-3 car lengths away from the cottage gate.

Awesome vacation rental in Key West

  • 5 of 5

The Mango Cottage was an awesome place for my friends and me to stay for a recent weekend getaway and friend's wedding. The check-in process was simple, the cottage was easy to find and there were several parking spots on the street. The location was very good - plenty of places nearby and Duval Street is walking distance.

The interior was much nicer than I expected, even from the photos. It's very nice with new appliances, modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. The two twin beds in the loft are probably meant for children, but two adults slept there with no issues. The stairs are very steep, so be careful going down.

The patio is great and well shaded. We didn't use the hot tub because it was July in Key West, but it looked like it was clean and maintained.

If I had one complaint it was that we could not figure out how to get the correct picture aspect ratio on the TVs. It was HD but the picture was smaller than the screen. Not a big deal, though.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at Mango Cottage just last week. The cottage is spotless and well appointed. It is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Many thanks especially to Kevin for his attention to detail and hospitality!! He was professional, friendly, and really went the extra mile to make sure we were happy. We highly recommend this property and Key West Hideaways! Would definitely stay here again.

Leslie, Linda and Liz loved our little mango cottage.. It was a perfect getaway -- every detail tended to. Loved the bathing suit pictures and decor throughout. Beds were comfy...sheets and towels top quality. Walking distance to Duval, beach super restaurants. A top quality grocery store just around the corner. Outside deck and hot tub great. Only thing we would add is a full length mirror. T he Fury sunset cruise with Cory and his band was a super suggestion from the staff as was the island tour bus and Hemingway house. Can't wait to come back to our little paradise in Key West!
