Charming 2nd-story apartment with balcony & lighthouse view - walk everywhere

Welcome to Julia Whitehead Guest Suites! Built in the 1890s on the site of what had been a small provisions and butcher shop, this charming building has a rich and captivating history. In the 1930s, while Hemingway was living a few houses down, it was home to a popular Cuban bodega. From the 1980s through the turn of this century, potter Charles Pearson created ceramic masterpieces which are still collected today. If you keep a watchful eye, you will find some of his ceramic fish adorning buildings and homes in the neighborhood still.

Its current guardians have spent nearly a decade painstakingly bringing the building back to life, with three one-bedroom apartments, and hosting Dog Tired Studio gallery up front as the proud face of the building. Julia Whitehead, the patron mermaid of the building, has been keeping an eye over this landmark since she first surfaced here in the 1800s, and she invites you to come and live like a local, just steps from Duval, in the shadow of the lighthouse.

Here, in the upstairs Seagrass Suite, enjoy peaceful mornings with coffee on your private balcony, with a view of the Key West Lighthouse. Interior space combines modern updates with antique accent pieces, eclectic art, and cheerful pops of color. The modern, sleek kitchen makes meal prep a breeze and a cozy living room is designed for relaxing at the end of the day. Free WiFi and cable will keep you entertained, or unplug entirely with an evening back out on the balcony, enjoying the stars and the lights of Old Town before bed - another idyllic day in Key West awaits tomorrow.

All three apartments in the building may be rented as Julia Whitehead Guest Suites to accommodate up to six guests.
