Bedrooms 3
Separate WC's1
Property type house

About the property

Private Home, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (sleeps 6). Private Pool. Steps To Duval

This house was renovated / rebuilt in 2014. It has all the historic charm of Key West, yet is a new house inside and out! Three split bedrooms all with in-suite baths. New heated pool with large sun deck and covered outdoor space. All the furnishings and beds are brand new. Be one of the first to enjoy this Key West oasis!

The house has 3 bedrooms (2 king beds, 1 queen bed) and all new in-suite bathrooms. There is an additional 1/2 bath in the living area. The main house great room has a full kitchen and a sliding glass wall that opens to the outdoor living space and the pool. The yard and pool are quite and private… plenty of outdoor space to to relax and enjoy the Key West weather.

The house is just steps off of Duval St. It is at the Southern end of Duval in the Gallery District. The location is close to the great Key West shopping, restaurants and nightlife… but away from the tourist crowds. The Southernmost Point and a public beach are 4 blocks away. So when you want a break from the pool, it is a quick walk to the beach.

There are a limited number of houses in Key West that are licensed to be rented on a nightly or weekly basis. Most of the houses with such licenses are located in mixed commercial and residential use. Blue Coral is in one of these areas and there is a Local's Tavern across the street. We work with the Tavern to control the noise level, however, we have found on some evenings, Music from the Tavern can be heard in front bedroom. We have placed a white noise machine in bedroom to help cancel out any extra noise.

I recommend that you contact me to discuss the property and your desired dates before booking. I generally do weekly rentals from Saturday to Saturday. I keep the calendar up to date, but there are changes from time to time. Also, I may be able to help you reduce some of the payment and other fees. You can contact me via the "Send Email" option.

This is a exceptional 3BR house, updated with every convenience. Warm pool, covered Lanai, BBQ grill and outside TV. Everything is top-notch. So close to Duval St and to South Beach. Owner has taken care to make sure you have everything you need. Convenient SPA around the corner, I had a nice outdoor garden massage. Be sure and take in All-you-can-eat Crab legs at Camille's 50 ft away. Bike rental was 1 block away.

Fabulous Key West Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 2 other couples rented Blue Coral for 5 nights mid July and had an amazing time. The location was perfect! Easy walk to the shops on Duval Street and the Southernmost point. We rented bikes and were able to easily ride to Mallory Square, Smather's Beach, and bars at the further end of Duval and Caroline Street. We LOVED the backyard area with the outdoor living room, t.v., air conditioned bathroom, plunge pool, dining table, and lounge chairs for sunning! It was the best spot to spend the hot July afternoons. We ate breakfast and lunch every day at the house and cooked several dinners. We found the kitchen to have everything we needed and enjoyed sitting around the big island to snack, drink, play games, and socialize. The bedrooms were spread out in the house so every couple had plenty of privacy and we liked that everyone had their own bathroom. We didn't experience much street noise at all- it was pretty quiet every night. Overall, everyone in our group agreed that we absolutely loved the house (and we looked at a ton of other rentals online before choosing this one) and that we would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful Key West Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third trip to Key West and this is by far the best home we have ever rented. The home is immaculate and beautifully decorated. The location is perfect and on the quiet end of Key West. Do not let the reviews regarding the street noise sway you. We had a couple of issues with street noise but followed Todd's suggestion and it was rectified immediately. The beds are incredibly comfortable and all of us (3 couples) slept wonderful every night. We highly suggest Southernmost Café and Banana Café for breakfast. Both within walking distance. There is also a spa around the corner called Isle Style Salon Spa and Boutique. We visited the spa for pedicures, massages, etc. Awesome spa! Also try Bad Boy Burritos across the street. Great for a late night snack! The backyard dipping pool and covered porch with a flat screen TV was used daily. Beautiful setting! Some type of fruit trees that tasted like mango fell in the yard every day and we enjoyed them. Even added them to some chicken we grilled one night. We also had an iguana visit us daily along the fence. It was an incredible trip and we will definitely visit Todd's rental again.

An awesome home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 4 of our friends rented Blue Coral for a week this past April. The house is absolutely beautiful! The 6 of us fit beautifully and were very happy with our accommodations. The house is appointed with much style and has the most fabulous outdoor living space! Everything is new and immaculate!

The location is a bit away from the heart of the nightlife on lower Duval, but it was not really an issue at all. We found the noise from the little pub across the street not to be a problem whatsoever; in fact, our whole week was very, very quiet.

Our only complaint really (and we've already spoken to Todd about it, so perhaps it has been rectified) was the lack of storage/closet/drawer space in the front bedroom and bathroom. The back bedroom has an enormous amount of storage, so we swapped the nightstands, affording some drawer space for the front bedroom. We put the nightstands back where they were when we checked out, but informed Todd of what we did. It helped a lot and hopefully, some hooks or something else have been added, too to that front bedroom and bath.

We would definitely stay at this home again and would recommend it to other groups who want to experience Key West at the quieter end of Duval.

If you stay here, the restaurant Camille's is literally next door. I would highly recommend it for breakfast; not so much for dinner...just sayin'.

Blue Coral

  • 5 of 5

My Family stayed at Blue Coral and the house was great! It was clean, stylish and comfortable. The location was quiet and convenient, just a short block off of Duval. We enjoyed the outdoor pool, living and dining and bathroom area for hanging out, dining and having cocktails. The 3 bedrooms with attached bathrooms were great for 3 adult couples. I recommend bike rentals for anyone visiting Key West and the rental place was a block away so that was great too. Everything was wonderful and we would definitely stay here again.

Blue Coral

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (2 adults and 3 teenagers) stayed at the Blue Coral VRBO#618849 over Christmas 2015. Todd Kemp is the owner/manager and he takes impeccable care of the home and his guests. This was the perfect location on the quieter side of the Duval street area. We read in other reviews that this property was noisy due to nearby restaurants and bars but we found it relatively quiet. The kitchen had everything we needed. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were gorgeously remodeled. The outdoor patio and pool area was the perfect place to regroup after our days adventures and have happy hour! I would highly recommend this home to anyone choosing to vacation in Key West.
