Description

Tropical Retreat, at 519 Catherine Street, is on a quiet lane half a block off the upscale Upper end of Duval St. where there are many sophisticated restaurants, high-end art galleries and shops. Downtown Duval St. is within easy walking distance from Tropical Retreat to enjoy the exciting nightlife, music, bars and fun Key West has to offer. The Southernmost Point and the sandy beaches of the Atlantic are a short 4-block, 7 minute walk away.

Built in the 1920's, this incredibly spacious bungalow-style home has 12 foot high ceilings and large, sunny rooms. The main house includes a living room with queen sleeper sofa, dining room with a very large table to seat your group, a fully-equipped kitchen with high end features and fixtures and powder room. The 2 bedrooms feature a queen bed in one, the other with two twins which can be converted to a king bed. Each bedroom has an ensuite tiled bath. The third bedroom with king bed includes a private bath and efficiency kitchen and is in the stand-alone cottage adjacent to the pool at the rear of the property. The sunny 13' x 25' heated pool and deck sit in a totally secluded, private area surrounded by tropical and lush bougainvillea, hibiscus and palms.

Tropical Retreat also has the added bonus of off street private parking which makes it a rare gem in Old Town!

Such a spacious and functional house. Way bigger than I thought it would be and the pool is a great size too. Large front porch that you don't see in the pictures with a swing on it. Great location also. This house is set up perfect for families or 3 couples. Everyone has their own bedroom and bathroom in their bedrooms and the bedrooms are spaced apart perfectly for peace and quiet. The back cottage is adorable and very private. We used the pool twice a day. Staff was very in tune with our needs. HIGHLY recommend this adorable home. There was also enough parking for a pick up truck and a small car.

We were in town for our daughters wedding. This house was the perfect gathering place for family and friends. The location was perfect. The kitchen was great for cooking breakfast or dinner. The pool was so much fun! We would definitely stay here again. We particularly liked having a bathroom for every bedroom and the outdoor space around the pool.
A few little "nice to have's" would be quieter air conditioning (although it kept us nice and cool!!) and better lighting in the kitchen.

The pictures are pretty accurate, but the house ended up being larger than I expected mostly due to the high ceilings. It was very clean and tidy. Washer and dryer worked great.

An added bonus was the shuttle service provided by Key West Vacation Rentals. Steve dropped us off and picked us up several times. Always with a smile! Thanks!!

Try Camille's for breakfast at the end of the block away from Duval and La Grinote french bakery on Duval. Delicious!!

Layout of the property was perfect for our multi generational family. Nicely decorated but only bare necessities in the kitchen (but we didn't cook much,either!). Our biggest complaint would be maintenance (broken door handles, leaky fridge, pool dirty, drain clogged) although response was quick and sporadic unpredictable housekeeping.

Can't wait to go back!

We were in the Keys for a destination wedding. The house was very spacious and the pool and parking space were a nice bonus. When we got there the pool was a little dingy and when we called someone was there within a few hours to take care of it. The hair dryer sparked and once again someone came with in an hour to replace it. Some cabinets in the bathroom needed painting and ants were a small problem, but we would stay here again.

Wow!! What a property!! Could not have been better.

It starts with key west rental picking you up at the airport in their luxury shuttle to check in. Great. The property was phenomenal. The main house has 2 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms plus a 1/2 bath off the kitchen. Good size fully equipped kitchen. Dining room with seating for 6. Nice size living room. TV's in all the rooms. Plenty of air conditioners and fans. Great! The Casita next to the pool was fun, king bed, bathroom, air conditioning, fan and TV. My wife and I stayed there and enjoyed it. Good size private pool, very clean. We stayed for 5 nights and used it every day. Nice gas grill with plenty of propane. 100 yards from the quiet end of Duval street. I cannot say enough about this property. Fantastic experience!!!!

Too much fun!

Private yard, pool was great. We shared the home with two other couples, perfect for us. Each couple had their own bathrooms, along with an extra 1/2 bath off the kitchen. Walked to breakfast every morning at a great French cafe. House is located at the "other" end of Duvall, away from Mallory Square, so it's much quieter. Scooters are the way to go in Key West!!

Loved the house and location was outstanding!
There were a few things I'd like to mention. You need grab bars in the bathrooms. A full length mirror would be great. Second bedroom closet needs a light. The fan and TV did not work in that room. Bathroom cabinet had paper peeling off the vanity. Kitchen door falling off hinge. Pool was great, but not really useable for elderly. Climbing out using the ladder is not doable for some. I do want to say again, we loved the house!! We plan to come back and hope to rent the same home. Location again couldn't have been better.

We stayed in the Tropical Retreat House and it was fantastic. Everyone at Key West Vacation Rentals was so nice and welcoming. From the moment we arrived and called the office to get a ride to check in, to Steve who picked us up & to the daily people who came in to tidy up & make the beds to the pool service guy Chad, it was A wonderful vacation and we would definitely rent with the company again and already recommended to others!!

Awesome vacation rental home, there were six of us and there was plenty of room for everyone. We appreciated the 3.5 baths and laundry on site as well as the quaint setting of the home and heated pool. The location was perfect, right off of Duval street and renting a golf cart made the experience even better for exploring some of the off beat non-tourist spots. We will be back!!!

Overall, the house was charming, clean and well-kept and in a perfect location for a couple and two friends with varying interests to spend a week enjoying the warm weather and good conversation. We had a few minor issues that could use some attention. The cleaning service was spotty---some days not arriving at all, other days only to replace towels and then run out the door without even emptying the garbage. The door knob/lock on the guest cottage is difficult to open and should be repaired. And finally as a vacation home owner myself I suggest supplying the rental with a few kitchen basics including salt/pepper, coffee, sugar, food storage bags and a few basic spices.

We loved our stay at the Tropical Retreat. We were in town for our wedding and rented this house with two other couples - the private cabana was perfect as a "honeymoon suite". The house was a great hang out spot for all of our guests as it is close to everything, and the pool was a huge hit. The check-in/check-out process was super easy and when we wanted the pool heater adjusted, maintenance showed up within 10 minutes. Would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Key West.

AWESOME HOUSE!

We only stayed one night after our road trip down from Michigan to camp for 3 days at Dry Tortugas- we needed a prep spot before leaving on the boat the next morning. Long driveway that held my full size Jeep Wrangler and a 12 foot trailer, critical as you can't park trailers on KW city streets. House was nice, two twins, and a queen bed in the main house with 2 bathrooms, a 3rd full bath and a king in the pool house. Pool house AC wasn't working when we arrived, at about 8pm we called the mgmt service and when we were back from dinner at 10 AC was kicking! Great service! We dipped our feet in the pool- really warm. We cooked in the kitchen and prepped food for the trip- fully equipped. Everything was great and I'd stay there again.

We were visiting Key West on a business trip with two other couples. This property was perfect for us. Everything was as described and then some. Location was convenient to everything. We did not feel crowded in the least. The property management company was extremely responsive to all of our requests; they shuttled us everywhere, made reservations for us, and provided excellent house keeping services.

Thank you for your feedback. The staff at Key West Vacation Rentals works very, very hard to make sure our guests have the best experience possible. We are thrilled that you were able to take advantage of our courtesy shuttles as they are a new addition to the vast array of services that we offer.

House was perfect! Clean, good size bedrooms and nice pool!
Pool was cleaned and serviced....needed 2 more chairs for deck and they were delivered within the day.
Location great...a little noisy on Saturday night...but to be expected!
Pick tip service from airport (when it works out) is fantastic!
Only suggestion would be to leave some small amenities...like a pad and pen, a deck of cards/a few games, salt and pepper etc.

The experience was good, easy to reserve online and loved the app so I didn't have to carry papers around. Only problem was the information on the app regarding late check in wasn't updated and I stressed when I could not find the lock box to get the key. Luckily the office was still open which the app said they had closed.The property was as described and in a very convenient location. Checkout was easy and smooth especially with the app.

7 of us stayed for 2 nights. Property was roomy enough that we weren't bumping into each other. Secure parking for 5+ motorcycles. Clean and handy, extra bottle of propane for the grill, just in case (nice touch). Pool was heated, which was great since our trip fell during a cold spell (temps mid 60s). The only real criticism we had was a lack of chairs around for the table by the pool (very minor) and plastic wine glasses (understandable) :). Nice spot would rent again.

Our daughter was married in Key West and we decided to rent a house for a week instead of doing the hotel thing.Good decision.Tropical Retreat sleeps 6 -7 very comfortably,8 if necessary.Good size rooms,beds and showers are fine.Clean.Closed in pool.Grill.Close to everything.Best thing was off street parking as we rented a big vehicle for week.The ad says it is in the middle of the night life and could be a little noisy but actually the center of the bar scene is a mile or 2 away so it is pretty quiet at night.We had a great time.Overall I would rate this rental a strong 4 with 5 being top notch.

e enjoyed our stay. The location next to Duval street and the private pool are very good advantages. The shower outside is usefull. The towels are changed everyday between 3 and 6 PM if they are on the floor. The biggest problem is the noise in the street during the night. Several groups of persons shouted each hours during the 3 nights we were there and the house is not isolated at all against noise nor tempeture. You can not open the Windows during the night as there is nothing against mosquitos but you can keep the climatisation on. Compare to France standart, it is not a luxuarious house (no more than the usual chanels on TV, no fruits, no tea, only coffee is offered). When you arrive you must find the switch which are on all the walls of the rooms to switch off because all the lights and TV are on in all the rooms. Anyway, we enjoyed our stay and spent all the time visiting or in the pool.

This was the 2nd year we rented Tropical Retreat. We love the house, we love the location. Three steps from Duval St couldn't be any better. The only change we were not happy about was the owner went from central air conditioning to window units. Window units are VERY loud & the kitchen was VERY hot because there was no unit in there. I hope the property owner will replace or repair the central air conditioning. Otherwise, we were very satisfied with the house.

Thank you for your comments and being a return guest. We just wanted to make sure that you knew that the window units were only temporary while we were waiting for a special order part for the central A/C. It is being fixed as I am writing this so it will be ready for your next visit! Thanks again and see you soon in paradise!

Rented this wonderful little house for a week in June. The pool and house did not disappoint. It is just a half block off of Duval Street. A Circle K Convenience Store is 2 blocks away. Room to park 2 cars in the drive. LaTeDa is a half block away and has a nice bar and restaurant on the premises. Property was very well maintained with daily maid service. The 3rd bedroom is in a structure off of the house but has excellent facilities (shower/small fridge/microwave/coffee maker). If I had to whine about something, the stove was a bit tempermental (heat was slow to come up). Would definitely go back!

My husband and I rented the Tropical Retreat for our family to stay in during our wedding in Key West. They had nothing but good things to say about the house. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The pool is huge and the water temp. was perfect. The location is great too. They could get to the main streets such as Duval or Simonton ,to shop or eat, within minutes. The free ride to and from the airport(in an Escalade) was an added bonus especially since the cab fare is so expensive! They really had no complaints and would definitely stay there again. Just rent this place and you'll be happy!

We stayed here for my Bachelorette party and it was the perfect house to accomodate a group of girls, it was big enough to allow us to not feel like we were on top of each other, but also very cozy. The beds were the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The pool was heated, which was incredible, and we fully came to appreciate after we went to an unheated pool party. The location was ideal. It wasn't as close to the nightlife, but we enjoyed the walk. We expected to have to make a trip to the grocery store, but there were so many affordable restaurants near by, we didn't need to. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Tropical Retreat could not have been a better pick for us. And for as many of us that were showering, there was always a constant supply of towels. We loved it and are looking forward to returning!

lovely, quaint cottage

This was our second trip to Key West staying with this company. The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive. This home was in one of the best locations! Half a block to Duval St but far enough to be able to relax in the private pool. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds we very comfortable. I can't wait for the 3rd trip!

We would definitely rent this house again- the company was great to work with and the house was everything they said it would be! Great location too!
