About Cliff

I came to Key West 6yrs ago to love what I do and love where I live. I restore these old homes and protect the history that they contain. Its not the worst thing to see palm trees out your window when you wake up in the morning.

Cliff purchased this house in 2010

Why Cliff chose Key West

I'm an owner that cares about your happiness.

Quiet and comfortable but close enough to all the fun in Key West

  • 4 of 5

We were pleased with the space in the 2 bedrooms with attached bathrooms, as well as generous closet space. We never pulled out the sleeper sofa, which would have occupied the entire living area. Kitchen and dinette small but useable. The back patio which is included is private and shaded, with a functional gas grill. If you are hoping to get some sun, you won't find it at this property, but the beach is a ten minute walk with chairs and beach towels which were provided. Washer/dryer a nice perk here. The two bedroom window AC units worked fine when outdoor temps reached 80 in November, but I could imagine the kitchen getting hot if you did much cooking, or in mid-summer. We walked comfortably to the Southernmost Point, Mallory Square, and Fort Zachary Taylor. We even walked to the remote car rental north of the airport, but would recommend the Key West Transit bus ($2!) to and from the airport. The green line stop is two short blocks away by the Blue Macaw. Very comfortable for 4 guests, especially 2 couples. We were able to text the owner with a question and received a prompt reply. Just a note, the charming front porch with rockers belongs to the front unit!

A nice place to stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable unit and a good value. As a couple traveling with a single person, we especially liked the two bedrooms with separate baths. Cliff was quick to respond to a minor problem.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Julia's Retreat. It was the perfect location for us as it was on the "quieter" end of Duval St. The back patio area was very quiet and private. Cliff was very nice and accommodating when we asked if we could check-in and hour early. We will definitely return.

Perfect for 2 Couples on Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for renting your space to us! Everything was clean and the space was perfect for the little time we spent in. For those reading this new to Key West like I had been, let me explain where this place is located. It is a 30 second walk to Upper Duval, which I think of as the calm part. There are restaurants and shops and it is a couple minute walk to the Southernmost Point and the public beach we went to, Southernmost Beach. At that quaint little beach, there are chairs to rent, cornhole to play, and a bar for yummy beach drinks. There is a cafe too, which we never tried. Back to Julia (which is the name of the road the place is on), going the other way on Duval, first there is the more LGBT area with awesome rainbow painted crosswalks. Then after about a 10-15 minute walk you get to the crazier part with all of the famous bars. So for us, it was the perfect getaway in a quiet (except for the hilarious roosters which are EVERYWHERE) part of town!

PS I use TripAdvisor to choose and review activities, attractions, and restaurants. We liked all but Blackfin Bistro. It wasn't bad per say, but our least liked and most expensive.

This great little spot is located on a quiet,one way street, just steps from the energy of Duval St. and a short walk to sun and surf of South Beach. The Key West Light House,Hemmingways House,Southern Most Point,Butterfly Conservatory,Gallery .District,Trolley stop and countless tasty restaurants are within 2 blocks of this great old home. A good nights sleep for recharging is a must and this is the spot for it,very quiet but right in the middle of the fun and culture
