About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Dos Casas can be the answer to your fabulous Old Town Key West vacation. Contact us. We've been renting to discriminating travelers for over 10 years.

Why rent one when you can have two houses? Dos Casas is a unique four bedroom property ideal if you want to have both space and privacy for your extended vacation.

Dos Casas is on the 700 block of Fleming Street, the heart of the most beautiful section of Old Town. This lovely 2-house compound is located just a few blocks from Duval Street, Mallory Square and the Seaport. This very special neighborhood showcases the best of Old Town Key West --filled with Victorian mansions and historic homes, the Key West library, a serene palm garden and even the 'This Old House' project from several years ago.

The houses have been renovated and recently refurbished. Both 'shotgun' houses are tastefully done with tropical colors and an assortment of great local art. The spacious, light filled rooms have 10 foot ceilings with fans and central air conditioning. Four sets of French doors open to the spacious deck and pool.

Each house has its own front porch with comfy seating, and traditional Cuban tile and faux tile finishes -- a perfect place to relax and watch the world go by. Once through the front gate you enter a totally private oasis. All this privacy, yet just blocks from the bars, restaurants and galleries that make Key West famous.

This location is perfect to leave the car at home. Rent bikes or walk just about everywhere. Walkscore, a neighborhood walking site on the web, has rated Dos Casas at 711 Fleming Street a 'Walker's Paradise' with a score of 100 out of 100 for convenience to anything you could want.

Dos Casas is a very special property -- people stop to admire the bougainvillae and the traditional conch style. Numerous local and visiting artists have painted the houses, you'll see them in galleries all over town. While staying here, you'll feel like a local yet enjoy the amenities of a first class vacation rental.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Dos Casas for a month. We had family and friends throughout the stay. The houses were perfect for this. The location is close to everything such as Duval, grocery store, restaurants, the marina, etc. Michael and Charlene were the perfect hosts. They have thought of everything you will need to make your stay comfortable. The highlight of the house was the outside shower. It was a hit with everyone. We highly recommend this location as your getaway in Key West. Hope to do it again.

Perfect Holiday Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations stayed at Dos Casas over Christmas 2016. The property was perfect in every way - the pictures and descriptions don't even do it justice. You don't need a car here as everything is within walking distance. Grocery store 2 blocks away, marina 2 blocks away, restaurants and bars of Duval Street 2 blocks away. It was even a reasonable walk to the Southenmost Point, Hemingway House, and other attractions. Even with the close proximity to all the attractions, the neighborhood was very quiet (except for the roosters) and we felt very safe. The house was well appointed with comfortable beds, all linens, basic paper goods and cleaning supplies, quality cookware, and appliances. The common deck area with the plunge pool and large table was our gathering spot. It was spacious and private. We are looking forward to returning in the future for an extended vacation. Michael and Charlene were great to deal with.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the absolute pleasure of spending a month in Dos Casas. This property could not have been more perfect for our guests and our family! Mike and Charlene thought of every little detail but there is no denying our all time favorite part of the house was the outside shower! We liked it so much, we are putting one in our home. The Casas are perfectly located to just about everything you need to enjoy your time in Key West. Our senior Golden Retrievers also loved the property and enjoyed their daily walks around the quaint neighborhood. I highly recommend this property and hope to visit again next year!

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this absolutely perfectly appointed vacation home in June of 2014. The street was quiet yet a stones throw from all the action.

This is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate, everything you need is provided for you.

Mike and Charlene keep this place absolutely pristine. Well appointed kitchen, relaxing living room, dreamy bedroom and beautiful bathroom, although we mostly used the outdoor shower. The pool in the fenced in yard is a little oasis. You're in walking distance to many wonderful restaurants and lunch spots. We went to the beach (Fort Zachary), went sightseeing and took in all the local color. We never got in our car, we walked and biked everywhere. This spot is heaven on earth!!

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family had the opportunity to spend the month of July at Dos Casas. We had a wonderful time in Key West. This property had everything you could ask for and more. The outdoor living space was quaint and decorated perfectly. We spent much of our time on the deck and in the pool. The indoor living spaces are spacious and decorated tastefully. I would highly recommend this property. The owners are very nice and accommodating.

Excellent house and in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in September and there were 4 of us.

The house is split into 2 but all on the same ground with shared garden/pool area.

The outdoor shower was excellent! Private and under palm trees and amazing at night!

The pool was small but very deep at one end which was nice.

The pool area was nice and we hung out there a lot just on the table, chairs and loungers.

Location was perfect! We walked up and down duval street and other restaurant areas.

Could walk to the beach but we hired bikes from eaton bikes (1 block away) and it was a nice easy 15 minute bike ride (max) to fort zach beach.

Parking was easy for us - right outside the property.

The lizards are cool; they are very small and they just dart away so you'll never get near them. We did see one gecko at night for about an hour but that was it.

The amenities in the house were excellent; they had beach pass all ready setup and thought of everything you might need; umbrellas, cups etc....even a grill outside.

the lights were really nice outside.

I would thoroughly recommend this place!

I would actually love to back but with a few more people as this would comfortably sleep a lot more than 4 (think up to 8 easily).
