About the neighbourhood
The neighborhood is alive, dynamic, and surrounded by Key West History - unquestionably the most intact Old Town Key West neighborhood on the island. There are excellent restaurants within easy walking & biking distance, and Duval Street is only 2 blocks from the property - close enough, yet far enough away! Ft. Zachary Taylor, located only 2 blocks to the west of the property, is a National Historic Park and boasts the nicest beach with the best sunsets on the island.
Getting around
The best way to get around Key West is on a bicycle, which we have on the property available to our guests for a nominal fee - no need to rent bikes at an offsite location. Keep in mind that the island is only 2 miles by 4 miles, and during season, its much easier to park a bike than a car! (...and a little exercise is not such a bad thing)
