Immerse yourself in the island lifestyle when you book this Key West accommodation, comprised of a two-bedroom house and a separate one-bedroom pool house. Featuring a private heated pool, a private parking spot, and an outdoor shower, this home gives you the chance to unwind.
Located just over three blocks from the southernmost point in the continental United States landmark, and close to art galleries and gourmet dining on upper Duval Street, this home puts you right in the middle of the action. Walk just four blocks to the beach! Four dogs are allowed for a nightly fee.
Kick back under the blossoming bougainvillea and let the day slip away as you relax on the deck. Connect to the free WiFi and stream some music while you float in the private heated pool.
Inside this bungalow-style home, you'll find 12-foot high ceilings and sun-filled rooms. Let the private washer/dryer clean your swimsuits, then get to work on a tasty dish in charming checkerboard kitchen and surf the cable channels. End the day with a cocktail out on the patio as you revel in the quiet peace of Key West.
Treat yourself to this Key West home.

Recently stayed at “Tropical Retreat” in Key West and what an awesome stay it was. In a world of so many scams, I was very nervous about booking a home especially when collecting from a group. Booking through Vacasa gave me peace of mind that we would really have a house upon arrival. The pictures do not do this home justice and I can’t tell you how amazing it was to have the private pool after walking Duval everyday! The tropical greenery surrounding the yard made it feel extra secluded. Every room had its own bathroom which goes a long way when you have 8 people getting ready at the same time. There was plenty of room without feeling like we were on top of each other. I would highly recommend this home and Vacasa and would certainly stay again!
I loved the house, it was perfect for our group and very comfortable. We could walk to almost everything. We loved hanging out in the pool in the afternoon and evening.
We we first arrived, there were a few issues, but i called and everything got immediate attention and were handled that day. The only thing that did not, is a new ceiling fan for one of the bedrooms that required approval of the owner.
We enjoyed the chickens, all the local restaurants, and local places to see. Weather was perfect all week. just loved it.
Came with a group of 6 people and it was a perfect long weekend getaway. House was a clean and perfect for out group. Would definitely stay again!
This house is a perfect getaway to Key West. It has that Keys charm with a heated pool and 1/2 block from Duval. We rented a golf cart and it fit perfect in their gated yard. Look forward to going back soon.
Nice location. Clean and cozy. Private pool. Not enough outdoor furniture for 6 guests.
The rooms each with their own bathroom was perfect. Pool was lovely. BBQ need to be fixed.
The Good: The house has ample room for guests, a decent sized pool, and is a good “in-between” spot for those that want to be near Duval, but not too close.
The Bad: The property definitely needs some repairs and updating. There was also a bug infestation on the property during our stay, where insects got into our bedding, towels, luggage, clothes, cabinets, etc.
The caterpillars this guest encountered are Royal Poinciana Caterpillars - it is usually about 10 years between outbreaks. We are sorry to see this was bothersome to our guest.
House is lovely and in an excellent location. Local staff were helpful. Two items need help: Back door is difficult to lock and poses a security risk. Also, pool is under trees and quickly fills with leaves and turns green. Vacasa needs to have more frequent pool service.
The trees have been trimmed back, and if this doesn't solve the problem, we will increase our pool service. Thank you!
My Family of 8 stayed comfortably in there. We enjoyed every bit of our stay. We will be staying there again. Good location, Quiet Street, Everything we needed to have a good time.
Pool and grill is a definite bonus!!
Not a complaint, but a suggestion - add a full length mirror 😎
This is our second time staying at Tropical Retreat. The house itself is in excellent condition and very comfortable. It easily sleeps 6 adults with plenty of room to spare. It has quick access to Duval street, but removed enough that it's nice a quiet at night time. The pool is just icing on the cake for this place! I highly recommend staying here.
The house was well maintained and suited our needs perfectly - having the separate little cottage was perfect right the pool and smoke space for two cars.
Close to Duval but quiet except when trash trucks arrived each morning. House spacious. Needs a little attention but not bad for a beach island rental. Nice to have a private pool. Could also use some attention. Outside shower not functional. Door frame hanging off wall. Good basic starter supplies—toilet paper, dish washing tablets, lots of towels. Some coffee. Really would have been nice to have salt/pepper/sugar packets.
The outdoor shower will be torn down and rebuilt this summer. Thanks!
We loved key west. But the house we stayed in needs TLC.
Great people, great property !
The home was roomy with the perfect location and parking for at least one car possibly two. It needs a little TLC, but was clean and the housekeeping came everyday. The pool was a total added bonus. Sleeps six comfortably. If more people, will need roll away or two - the pullout sofa was broken. - would definitely stay again! The added bonus of free shuttle service from Key West Rentals was a nice surprise!!
We were on a journey to find the best key lime martini. The martinis we taste tested were slightly different, but all were excellent. Our recommendations: White Tarpon (down by Mallory Square), Mangoes and Nine One Five. We loved the cozy vibe of the bar at Nine One Five. But the White Tarpon and their friendly bartenders is one of our favorites.
House was great for our family. The pool was wonderful as well as the private room by the pool.
House is large, clean and well located.
Staff was helpful but having all calls go through the Portland Oregon office slowed response or caused a complete break in communications. All the written information provided about the house included only the Portland number. When I finally got the local number, it always rolled over to Portland anyway and I would have to hope for a call back.
Pool was a little dirty, just from things falling from trees. An information sheet on the house's refrigerator indicated it is cleaned on Mondays. It wasn't bad enough to call about, but nobody came to clean it on Monday.
We are sorry to see this guest found it difficult to reach us. The pool servicing day has been changed, and we have updated that information in the house. Guests are always welcome to call for additional pool cleanings since the abundance of foliage does cause a lot of debris to end up in the pool. Thanks!
We loved this house-the pool area and the location were just perfect. There is room for 2 cars in the off-street parking which was a bonus. We had an awesome time and will stay here again!
Everything about this property was incredible. Convenient location, walk or bike to everything. Place was very clean with more than ample supply of towels & blankets. It was nice to have a day or 2 worth of cleaning supplies, paper towels, toilet paper.
Our group had an amazing time celebrating a 50th birthday party. I would recommend this property for couples traveling together, as there are 3 private bedrooms and bathrooms. Very clean, great location, wonderful service!!
So convenient to everything we wanted to see & restaurants.
This house is lovely and quaint! It had everything we needed and was in a perfect location for our stay. Not too far away but not in the middle of all the bars and noise. Would definitely recommend here and would love to stay again.
