Classic Key West cottage featuring shared pool, courtyard, covered front porch
Part of the Papa's Hideaway complex, this charming, old Key West cottage is an ideal home away from home for that next vacation to the Southernmost Point. Up to six guests can enjoy this recently updated home complete with a high-end kitchen, loads of modern amenities, a shared swimming pool, sundeck, and tropical courtyard. Street parking is available for you during your stay.
Dine in the best restaurants, shop in unique local stores, or sample the live music and entertainment in a number of popular nightspots along Duval Street just a block away. Those looking to dig into the history of Key West will want to visit the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum as well as the historic Key West Lighthouse, the Truman Little White House, and the Key West Art & Historical Society, all located within a mile of this rental.
Spoil yourselves back home with the free WiFi, three flatscreen cable TVs, and a private, covered porch where you can dine or just cool down with a refreshing beverage while the ocean breezes play in the palm trees above. Swim in the shared saline heated pool, or relax poolside on one of the provided lounge chairs.

The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous courtyard and that the house was spotless. We had everything we needed - ample towels, hangers in the closet, comfy beds. Sitting by the pool on the cool mornings with coffee and a book was paradise. It was a short stroll to the Hemingway house, Duvall, and you can see the Southernmost Point from the street corner. We walked nearly everywhere and found so many places to enjoy a meal or beverage outdoors. The pool cleaner and some Vacasa employees were on the property from time to time and everyone we spoke to was friendly and professional.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.

A beautiful house with beautiful courtyard surroundings. This house was ideal for two couples. The location is ideal in that it was not near the craziness of Duval street.

I loved the peaceful grounds and the beautiful trees and greenery around home. Loved sitting on the porch. Pool was nice and clean.

Home is clean and spacious. Walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, and night life. Had a wonderful time!!!!
David A.Aug 2019
This house was nice for a quick getaway with 6 of us. The pool area was very nice ( just beware of the iguanas running and jumping around on the deck ). The inside of the house was clean the only thing is that it does need some updating. It is close to everything and is walking distance to the Southernmost Point. We would not mind returning here for another trip.

We love the location, the quiet setting, yet still close enough to walk to everything on Duval. We will continue to stay on this property on our future visits!
Kara A.Mar 2019
We loved our stay. The perfect location. The best part of the entire property is the pool area...so quaint, like paradise and so well kept. The location is ideal for Key West. A short walk to everything and a block from Duvall, plus we loved the focus on the Hemingway history. Our days were busy and it was so nice to come back to this private retreat. The only negatives were that the inside needs some updating and the beds were not the most comfortable but I would book this property over and over again. Thank you!

Jessica and I travel quite a bit, and own a Vaca rental. We would love to stay here again!

Tranquil comfortable cottage on a quiet dead-end street in quaint old town. The lush surroundings, pool, and porch layout made for a most relaxing fun stay. The Hideaway is located within walking distance of many great restaurants, bars, and shopping, but being at the southern end of the island, it’s much quieter than being further up the road. Bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms were fine, but it’s the outdoor living space that makes this place special!

Enjoyed our quick stay here. Beds were very comfy, kitchen had everything we needed, front porch was lovely for coffee in the morns. Literally less than a 5 minute walk to all the action. Would stay again!

This is our third time at Papa's Hideaway. Twice in Garden of Eden and once in one of the studios. Great location, close to everything but off Duval. Vacasa does a nice job managing property. Shuttle ride guys were great!
Jamie B.Aug 2018
The housing and grounds were beautiful. We loved our stay and would love to stay again.
Our televisions did not work during our stay. We were there for three days.
The location was centrally locates to so many things in Key West. It was very quiet and serene.

We loved this place. Group of 8. We stayed in 2 bed cottage and one of the efficiencies. Yard is fenced and beautifully landscaped. Lots of private areas to just relax. Pool was great. Really quiet - super easy walk to southern most point, lighthouse, and hemmingway house. Moderate walk to Duval St and Mallory Square. Had excellent meals at 915, Blue Heaven. Drinks at Sloppy Joes along with Sloppy Joe nachos! A fun fun night at Aqua - drag show - no cover, and performers were fantastic! Vacasa staff were so accommodating and professional. Can't say enough great things - and we can't wait to come back!!

It was in a great location. Within walking distance of everything. The manager Chad was extremely helpful and went out of his way to make sure whatever we needed was taken care of .
Mary A.Mar 2018
This home is just beautiful. The pool and wrap around porch are perfect for enjoying the morning and evening breezes. Antique furnishings provide a very tranquil feel. Great location for walking to many areas. Would definitely stay here again. Pool area is shared but still very private and quiet.

Steve S.Jan 2018
This was one of the best places I have ever stayed in. It has all of the old world (beautiful antique furniture and wood floors) charm that you want in old town Key West with a location that can't be beat. The pool was perfect and the home was well stocked and perfectly clean. Thanks to Vacasa and the homeowner for giving me a wonderful memory I will never forget.
