Description

This gem is located at the end of a hidden lane, just off Simonton Street, behind The Gardens Hotel. Helen's Hideaway is a step back in time to Key West during its slumbering past. Built by David Wolkowski, who built many of Key West's premier resorts, including the Pier House, this paradise reflects his passion for special details. Just past the outdoor shower, walk behind the large scheffeleras, open the gate and find yourself strolling down a Key West secret lane to Duval Street! You will be one of the few and privileged to be able to do this!

The fully air-conditioned main house has the kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom and bath. The kitchen has everything you will need if you desire to cook during your stay. The dining room seats up to six comfortably, with an oak pass-thru to the kitchen. All along the living/dining room wall are floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that look out onto the pool and gardens.

The large recently renovated master bathroom features a completely tiled shower that is 6' x 6', double sink vanity with 2 large mirrors and sliding glass doors leading out to the pool.

The second bedroom and bath are in a separate cottage with sliding glass doors surrounding two sides overlooking the pool and deck. It features a bath that has sliding glass doors which lead out to the pool.

We loved this home and guest house . The location could not have been better! The main house does have a slight musty smell. The guest house could use a small refrigerator. Everything else was perfect. We loved the pool so much it was hard to leave it to enjoy Key West.

Fabulous house and location!

This is the second time we've stayed and we will definitely stay again! The house is clean and well stocked, perfectly located, and very private. A dedicated parking spot is really a plus! The house was a little musty when we arrived but after a call to the office, it was taken care of. The price for the house per couple, per night, turns out to be less expensive than a hotel. We'll be back!

Helen's Hideaway was perfect for us! We were 2 couples on vacation and the space was great. The pool was nice to come home to after a day at the beach. The location was exactly as described - 1/2 block from Duval. We arrived in the dark our first night so we couldn't find the "secret passage" but once we did, that was amazing! We were exactly at the half point of Duval, so it was .5 mile to the Southernmost beach and .5 the other way to a different beach. We walked everywhere. Our friends are already looking to re-book for next year!

Excellent experience in Key West! The house we stayed in was Helen's Hideaway, which was hidden away in a secluded lane, just moments from Duval Street. The home was complete with a separate guest cottage and a private, heated pool. We loved the property and the island!

Very well appointed and flexible we were looking for so many hotels for a two couple retreat and realized the rooms weren't together and the hotels were farther from duval, then i discovered this little gem and for the price of two hotel rooms,..this worked out marvelously for my wife and our friends
i am glad to see there are rentals staying competitive and not over priced
i would recommend this to a small group can't beat this ---

Enjoyed helen's hideaway. Great location, loved the pool, back alley to duval street was a plus!

Wished there was a dish washer and the sofa sleeper was not comfortable to sleep on for multiply days.

Housekeeping and pool maintenance were great.

This trip was to have something other than traditional Thanksgiving with my wife's birthday month trip together.
Great location, block away from Duval yet quiet and private.

Great Time at Helen's Hideaway

The house was exactly as advertised and was so close to all the action on Duval St. The pool was great for cooling off after a long day touring Key West. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone staying in Key West

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT

Tucked away home in Key West. My husband and I enjoyed relaxing by the pool and grilling out. I would recommend this rental. I would suggest to the owners to plant some privacy trees along the fence line where the new house was built, it is kind of a bummer to see a house there. All in all though, Helen's is wonderful...book this place. Dont forget to go to Garbo's for lunch- best fish tacos ever!!!

Two couples from UK so layout ideal with two separate buildings. Location is brilliant and the secret exit to Duval is great. Property had all the amenities we would have required...spent a lot of time on the deck and in pool and used the BBQ twice. Only comment would be need for a ceiling fan in the bathroom of the poolside room as rather hot in there!

I have been visiting Key West for over 20 yrs. This property is superior to any that I have stayed in. The house and the property were as described and the photos of the property were 100% accurate. No complaints at all. Fantastic location and privacy. The private pool is a great asset after a long day of fishing or touring Old Town. I would highly recommend the property to all my friends and relatives and hope to return there in the future. The rental staff was friendly, courteous and very helpful.

Great location and accomodations

This place is really great for relaxing by the pool and has plenty of space. The hidden back door exit by the pool puts your right onto Duval where all the action starts.

This is a great place if you want to be able to grill, lounge by the pool and have some privacy. When you're ready to go out and experience Key West you're only a short walk away from everything.

I would highly recommend this property and will no doubt rent it again in the future.

Nice Place

It was a great little retreat hidden very close to the middle of Duval St that allowed us to escape from all the action for peace and quiet as desired. The pool was well kept. The area felt safe. The two "bungalows" allowed us to have privacy. Kitchen sufficient. Daily housekeeping. Only issue was great difficulty in sliding the large glass doors that are your entrance to the pool/outdoor seating area.

The house is in a great location right in the middle of Duval Street but tucked away in a quiet area. House itself is very nice and great for 2 couples.
