Featured Vacation RentalCOCONUT PALM ~ Hidden Gem!
I wanted to express our thanks to Best of Key West Rentals for helping us find the Bella Donna property. We have enjoyed our time there. We had originally rented another house on Amelia St., but the owners decided to stop renting it. I was originally concerned about the location – a bit further out from Duval St. than we usually stay, but it has ended up being very convenient. We can walk, bike or drive to town quite easily. The location is in a quiet neighborhood, which has made the stay enjoyable. There is a Fausto’s neighborhood grocery just a few blocks away.
The best part of the house is the house. It is even better than the description or the pictures. The rooms are large and it is comfortably furnished. The kitchen is excellent with every possible need met. The outside area is heavily planted, which makes it feel like we have the place to ourselves – even though it is in a dense, in-town neighborhood. The pool is large and well-maintained.
We would probably not have considered this property because of our perception of its location, but it has been a wonderful find and we hope to come back to it again soon.

The Greer Family had a wonderful time in Southernmost Belle, Key West. The location is ideal and the home is comfortable, perfectly Key West beautiful with all the convenience we could want. Loved the air conditioning, wifi and front porch! We fell in love with Willy T's on Wednesday and Thursday night. We visited both beaches but LOVE Zachary Taylor State Park and Beach. We definitely want to come back!
Coral Cabana is a well maintained home in the gated Coral Hammock community. The home is well appointed with all of the comforts of home. The home backs up to the community pool and community center, which includes a fitness room. Duval is an inexpensive cap ride away, airport is 2.5 miles away, Hurricane Hole Marina is a 1/2 mile away for your scuba and fishing trips. Great stay and highly recommended.
So glad we stayed at Casa De Vino! Great accomodations plus plenty of amenities. Close to anything you might need. Jana was excellent to work with. Had to call her with a question and she got right back to me and solved the problem, all after 11:00 at night. We would book this house again in a heartbeat!! Casa De Vino is Casa De perfect!!!
Our stay at “Stone’s Throw” was simply excellent! The cute lilac cottage is in an ideal location one block over from Duval Street, Hemingway’s home and the Lighthouse, so you are within steps of literally everything. I was very impressed when I walked in the door to the beautifully appointed home. The living room area has soothing colors with plenty of seating, a great view out to the pool/patio and is decorated with a distinct tropical feel that shows the owners really took their time in making it feel comfortable and stylish. The kitchen was well appointed with granite counters, great cupboards, new appliances and every cooking gadget you could want! The lower bedroom was spacious with one of the most comfortable (King) beds I have ever slept in and the linens were top of the line. Again, the décor was fantastic with plenty of closet space, dressers, etc., to make you feel right at home. Both of the bathrooms were roomy, spa like, and had marble showers with great water pressure…something I always look for. The upstairs bedroom was more like a suite with a queen bed (again with luxurious bedding) and a Juliet balcony overlooking the pool. The backyard patio and pool add that something special to the cottage, and we enjoyed many a night cooking out and then relaxing in the pool. With all this going for it, the Stone’s Throw is a perfect place to stay. You get both the accessibility of being near Duval street and all the activity there, but, by being a block away you also enjoy peace and quiet—the best of both worlds. Right across the street is the Six Toed Cat restaurant so you can enjoy breakfast or lunch there by only walking 20 feet! This is definitely the place you’ll want to be when you come to Key West. We will be back and recommending it to everyone---it’s really perfection in every regard.
Loved it! 5 Stars! We had 2 couples and 3 singles staying at the house for a 50th birthday celebration. The location can't be beat. You can walk to everything in old town. We rented bikes around the corner and when we tired of walking, we pedaled. We never used the car except to go to the grocery store when we got there. The house has many updates such as auto-closing drawers in the kitchen and an induction stovetop. (Be sure to take the time to read the information booklet provided on how to use the stovetop if you've never used one. We spent quite a bit of time standing over a small pot trying and failing to boil water. It is really easy if you actually read the instructions). The kitchen has a full refrigerator and two refrigerated drawers next to the fridge. Plenty of dishes and pots/pans. The only complaint would be the two upstairs bedrooms are really small. We had read the reviews and knew that they were small, but we were still shocked at how small they really were. I'm 6' tall and had to stoop if it was standing anywhere but in the center of the room. Thank goodness we have wonderful friends who are good sports and they stayed in the rooms with minimal complaints. We didn't have them pay as much as everyone else who stayed in "real" rooms. The pool was great. We had it heated and most everyone would take a dip in the afternoon. Loved our stay! Thanks so much!
Outstanding location, property, and site manager! 5 Stars! This is our second stay in Key West and our second rental. We rented "the Nest" for three months and have already signed on for three months next year as we absolutely love this place. First reason is the location - it is situated on a small lane off of two popular streets - Duval and Whitehead. Every day we walk and it is only a 15 minute walk to Mallory Square to watch the ships dock in the morning and the sunset in the evening. We are only one block off of Duval - ten minute walk to Faustos for food, around the corner from the Green Parrot Bar and liquor store as well as spas within a block. Second, the cottage is beautiful and the owners created a place that is quite efficient. When you see the square footage, you might think that it is too small but it is so open and efficient that you do not feel closed in. I love the new appliances and everything in this place matches a décor of palm trees and Key West living. It is tastefully decorated and has what you need. Last year, I brought everything down and this year decided that I would just come and not bring stuff to make it personal. It was a great decision as they had everything I needed here. The only thing I bought was a garlic press as I loved all the serving bowls, dishes, etc. The bedrooms are decorated beautifully and tastefully. It is very comfortable for four people whether you eat inside at the counter or outside. We had six people for three days during our stay and it was workable although I think four is just perfect. I love the outside deck and dip pool. The deck is enclosed with palm trees and bamboo - the only noise we hear is the singer from the Rum Runner at night which is good for us as we like the music and you never hear it late at night. Amenities are great and the location is really quiet. We are only four blocks from Blue Heaven, Santiago Bodega, and Six-toed Cat restaurants which are great. We are around the corner from Charlie Mac's, Frita's Cuban Burgers, and only one block from Mangos restaurant and Aqua - which is a great drag show every night. Willie T's has great music and it is on the other block. So great location, great cottage that was clean and well-maintained when we got here and it is managed by Brian, who is outstanding. He is the site manager that works with us if we have an issue. I loved having this service as everything has worked smoothly. Would recommend this place to everyone. Kudos to the owners and Truman & Co. for a great place!
Love at first sight!! 5 Stars! From the first step into this cottage I knew our visit was going to be wonderful and I was correct! The Lady Admiral was comfortable and had everything you would need plus more. We vacationed with our adult children and this property provided spaces for all of us plus plenty of room to enjoy family time! The pool and outdoor area were where we spent most of our time, even on the chilly days because the heated pool was wonderful. The managers of the property were very helpful and the provided great customer service. We also took great advantage of the fact we were only 1/2 block from DuVal Street and enjoyed many delicious meals and beverages plus wonderful shopping! The pictures do not really show how nice it is. We had such a wonderful time we are planning our next trip back for next year!

Southernmost Belle - Hidden Paradise!! 5 Stars! The home was even nicer in person than the pictures, which doesn’t often happen. We couldn’t believe the size of the lawn or how quiet and secluded it felt, even though it was just steps away from all of the action! Also, it was affordable, which made all the difference.. What a great value! We can't wait to rent it again!
LOCATION , LOCATION , LOCATION - 5 Stars A little piece of Key West Heaven tucked away in a Beautiful Tropical landscaped yard , with water falls and all . Couldn't ask for a better location , close to all the Happenings of Duval Street plus great places to eat . The house is the Perfect Key West Getaway , spacious rooms , lots of baths , and Great kitchen for what ever your needs may be. HAD A GREAT TIME !
Very comfortable and relaxing to come home to. It was exactly like the pictures on the web site showed, it did not disappoint. Everything was provided (even beach towels), so all we had to do was get some groceries and we were very comfortable the whole stay. It was quiet and relaxing. We will definitely be back!
Fantastic Condo! Well appointed! 5 Stars! Clean and comfortable. Quest. Nice porches to relax on and enjoy coffee and the newspaper. Very well appointed for a week or more stay. Easy parking. Easy access to Overseas Highway. Smather's Beach close-by. Worked well for a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. Will go back soon.
Felt like a 5-Star Hotel Garden Oasis is everything we could've hoped for and more! My girlfriends and I had such a wonderful time & had plenty of space between us, even with 8 people sharing. The furnishings were very high-end & comfortable. We loved all the outdoor space & spent most of our time outside. The pool was perfect & we loved the water fountain feature, too! Everything felt new & recently refurbished with a high level of detail & thought. We will definitely be back! Thank you!
Tides On Simonton: We loved our stay - thank you so very much! The location was perfect - we ended up parking our car two blocks away on the main street and walked everywhere during our stay. Perfect size for couple or a small family. Loved the decor as well!! Rental company was great to work with - seamless and answered all our questions - thank you!
Having stayed at this property many times in the last three years I can honestly tell you that the improvements and renovations that the current owners are doing is wonderful and well needed. No longer is the bathroom a safety issue,( getting in and out of the tub or the shower curtain falling down in the middle of a shower), or ants coming through the door off of the porch an issue. The new furniture, (especially the outside table and chairs), beds and linen, the TV, living room couch and kitchen counter top was well needed. Over all I can rate this property a 5. It is not just for the property itself it is for the interaction and professionalism of Regan Butler and Brian. They were always quick to reply and made transition in and out of the property easy, and were always available for questions and concerns. Also this place is close to everything. Walking distance to Ft Zachary Taylor, The Green Parrot, Duval Street and even Mallory Square but I would still recommend a bike. I enjoyed my stay in paradise and "Villa Azul" and look forward to staying there again in December and hopefully for years to come; if I don't move permanently to Key West.

Our stay at the Bougainvillea House was outstanding, and the home itself was perfect for our diverse family. The house is exactly what it claims itself to be and more. The pool house was the perfect spot for offering privacy to those family members who really wanted it (my MIL), or were dirty Key West stay outs (my brother) and didn't want to disturb the rest of the family with their late night antics. The remaining upstairs bedrooms were perfect for our family and the midstay housecleaning was a nice way to welcome the next round of guests. The covered pool deck (lanai?) was the perfect gathering spot during the heat of the day with a cool drink and great place to hang out with the dogs... the fact that the house was dog friendly is a HUGE plus for us. The enclosed yard and secure fencing allowed me to not worry too much about my 10 and 15pounder escaping anywhere. The house was exceptionally clean and well cared for, with all the amenities of home and then some, even with the small things. Being a huge fan of french press coffee and knowing this was a vacation rental, I was not expecting one to be there when we arrived, however not only was there one, there were three to choose from, nice touch. (Ironically, we ended up loving the brand new Kuerig as everyone got up at different times, loved it so much I bought the same one as soon as I got home). The library was an incredible room to spend a rainy day in and to work in when necessary and the living room was a great place to receive friends and have conversation in. The location of the house was perfect, so close to Harpoon Harry's, BO's, Dante's, the Wharf and shopping... perfect for my 80yo mother, who couldn't walk too far and didn't want to walk Duval St. but still wanted to get out and about a bit, for breakfast, lunch and a little window shopping. As far as the management company went, they were fabulous. There was nothing that was overlooked and anytime we had a worry, issue or concern, Brian was over to address it almost immediately and it was taken care of. Couldn't be happier with both Truman & Co and the Bougainvillea House, and we look forward to staying again next year! Big Thanks to the homeowners and Truman & Co for a fabulous stay!

5/5 STARS! We loved staying at this perfect location. Sipping cocktails watching folks walking out to Duval while getting in the spirit to walk downtown, or swimming in the perfectly private pool. We do notice that the french doors are new, not sure if they fold away like the old doors did, so your kitchen was completely, and awesomely, open to the backyard, bringing the outside in. We loved the house, it was in perfect condition. We rented a car to get out there from the airport, and promptly returned it. A bike was plenty to get around the entire city. We spent a week of our honeymoon here, and we are planning to do it again next year. We stayed a few years back, and the form won't let me put the right date in, but we can't wait to go again. Worth it, so much better than a hotel, or apartment. The utter privacy is unparalleled, the neighbors can't even see into the pool area. Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Pet-friendly, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.
BestofKeyWestRentals.com WOW !!! The name truly says it all. I recently vacationed at one of your rental properties, Casa de Vino, for a two night stay and can honestly say that I found the accommodations to be first class. The both of you are exceptionally pleasant to work with which only made my stay that much more enjoyable. I would like to thank the both of you sincerely and will certainly recommend you to anyone who wishes to vacation in Key West. Thanks again, Michael Lombardi

Casa Verde is Perfect in So Many Ways!!! 5 Stars!! Case Verde was more than I expected. Everything was accurate on the description of the property and it is even more gorgeous in person. The house and yard were clean and maintained by a nice crew of guys. Anything you needed, you could just call and they would be there. The location has to be one of the best on the island. Just two short blocks to Duval Street. And right in the center of Duval too!! We enjoyed so much while we were there, We had friends visit and they loved it, too. We took friends to the Butterfly Museum, Hemingways House, The Little White House, Southernmost Point, Sunset at Mallory Square and even a sunset cruise and kayaking. We also ate at so many good restaurants. It was the best time and something we will never forget.
I had a wonderful stay at this condo in key west! The condo is absolutely beautiful. Very spacious with a beautiful kitchen, very large balcony and great common area for the group to relax and hang out. I would have to say that the location is the best on the island with easy access to Duval street(main drag) and a quick walk to the best beach key west has to offer. No corners very cut when preparing the condo for our stay. A welcome booklet upon arrival. Great cable and wifi. A pool on the complex. Highly recommended !
Bob & Meg Beutel
Regan, Wendy and Brian were great coordinating our stay. Please thank the owners for sharing their beautiful/amazing condo with us. It was more than we expected and the entire condo was clean and immaculate. As we promised, we left the condo cleaner than when we arrived. Please let the owners know that we will be figuring out when we can return and will be renting from them again if it is available. THANKS again for a great week in Key West!
I would like to start off by saying that working with Truman & Co has truly been a pleasure! Each person I worked with was always very helpful & personable. They made the booking process all the way to arriving at the Lady Admiral seamless! When I along with 6 other women arrived at the Lady Admiral we were so excited! The house was exactly as shown in the pictures! It was so relaxing and comfortable so much so that I called it home while we were there! I loved being able to walk out the door take a quick left and we were steps away from Duval Street. I also loved being able to come "home" and spend time with my friends by the pool relaxing! The house was very clean and as I mentioned Truman & Co was very accommodating. My friends and I have talked about planning a trip down there every year, I don't know if that will happen with our busy schedules, but if it does we will be staying at the Lady Admiral again! Thank you for making out trip down to Key West seamless and amazing. I hope to be back there in the future! Melissa
This condo had so much more than we expected. Very clean, lots of space....lots of space :) well appointed kitchen and laundry facilities. We would most definitely recommend staying here.
Perfect - 5 Stars! The location is great and the environment of the gated community is extremely relaxing. Great decor on the interior and the pool is a great place to hang out. I had a wonderful time during my stay. The pictures are spot on.
Perfect vacation stay. Rating: 5 Stars! Place was perfect, very clean and welcoming. Location was great and proximity to the pool was nice. Not only that, but the personnel that I talked to regarding our rental were extremely helpful and kind. I knew from those conversations that we had chosen the right place and was not disappointed. Thank you.
The location is great (less than one block from Duval). We were able to walk everywhere we needed. We had a car but wouldn't rent one again. The house is beautifully decorated and well appointed, the pool is private and well maintained. All in all, a great place for a family gathering! We would stay there again in a minute!
We loved our stay Condo is very spacious with a large patio area. Grounds are very well maintained & beautiful - enjoyed having the garage for our rental car & scooter. Condo was well supplied with anything you might need, beach towels, electric hair rollers, & all cooking needs. Master Bed was comfortable with nice bedding. Pool area was clean. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
The Southernmost Belle is a secluded gem. The exterior is a traditional Key West style home with beautifully upgraded bathrooms and a gorgeous kitchen. The interior decoration is very charming as well. The property is within a short walk of the heart of Duval Street.
We loved staying at the Lady Admiral in Key West! The location and accommodations were perfect and the listing provided with us an accurate description of what we were to expect. We loved the accessibility to Duvall Street as well as the proximity to some great restaurants and shops. We would highly recommend staying here if you have a group, it comfortably fit 7 of us. There were plenty of days we spent just hanging by the pool and grilling out,! So if you are looking to have a low key vacation where you can relax at home in a bathing suit this is the perfect spot!
The place was wonderful, had everything you needed - the pool was beautiful - to get up and have your coffee sitting outside is one of the best feelings there is. Yes I would recommend this property highly and I will stay there again.....
The pictures are spot-on. The unit is clean and the owner has many little perks for the guests to enjoy. Very roomy and has everything in the kitchen to cook. Brian the customer service provider was delightful and I can't wait to return to this beautiful property. We rented a car but a cab ride to Duval was $25.00. There were 7 of us and with the 3-bedrooms and 3-baths...very roomy. 5 Stars!
Stay was great 5 Stars!!! Home was very nice and clean The stay was great
This property is awesome. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. There are ample linens provided and the kitchen is well stocked. The pool is very large with a beautiful view of the ocean. It is one of the nicest properties in Key West.
We had an amazing time at the property! It was a beautiful home and was very well maintained. It exceeded our expectations and the group of 8 fit there perfectly. I would rate this place a 5. The porch swing was adorable, the kitchen fully functional, the bedrooms decorated in true key west fashion. The linens were of good quality along with the pillows. To be able to rinse off in the outdoor shower after the beach was a plus to avoid sand in the house. The pool and deck area was my favorite thing. I wish I lived there. We were able to grill out and swim under the stars with privacy. My only complaint was the smell of the guest house. It was a musty smell and we needed to keep the window open so our clothing did not smell as well. The guest house itself however was adorable and perfect. Having a washer was awesome so we could wash our own towels. The pool was the best part always being at a perfect temperature and very clean. 10 am is a little early for a group of 8 to get it together and check out (even hotels that don't have a full fridge to take care of, laundry, etc. typically give you until 11). Location was to die for- nice walk to the crazy end of Duvall but not too far. Quiet area for sleeping and close to the sunrise. Thanks again, we hope to make it back sooner than later. We love this place.
The property is beautiful...exactly as shown in the pictures! There were 6 of us on the trip and the space was just right. Most importantly, the pool, and the deck around the pool, could accommodate all of us. The location is great.....right off Duval at the quieter end of Duval. And to make the stay perfect, our coordinator through the rental company was wonderful! She made everything so easy and even coordinated with the local stores to have provisions already there when we arrived. We all agreed that this house was perfect and we would stay there again!
“Large, clean, great view” Spacious,clean, good view, nice pool area
The property was homey and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay at Lady Admiral. We would definitely stay there again or recommend the property to friends and family.
Great location near southernmost point away from the busy, younger crowd of the other end. All within walking distance. Most wine bars and small restaurants near this end. Greatly decorated place and very well maintained.
Great place to stay! Would recommend it to anyone! Thanks for helping make the vacation.
What a great place, so clean and convenient to marinas and Duval Street. The pool is very close to the back door and the area is quiet. I would definitely suggest this condo
Heidi Connelley, Germany
Thank you for making our anniversary stay incredible! We can not thank you enough for taking the time to stock the property with everything we needed for a romantic get away. The location was perfect and we really felt at home. We will be returning for many years to come.
Pristine home with lovely furnishings. Awesome proximity to the pool and plenty of parking.
Our group had a great time, arrival was smooth, everything was as we requested and clean. The house is very cute, located a block and a half from Duval, so close enough to walk everywhere, but not close enough to hear the late night activities either. The pool offers a tremendous tropical feel and our group enjoyed the outdoor space as much as the indoor. Great for a group of six (three couples), loft bedroom is a little tight, but otherwise, really great property.
Jack Winters, Illinois
Key West, what a blast! This is a great getaway, you really feel like you are away from it all when in Key West. It is so laid back and the people are so friendly. It is hard to believe this type of vacation can be found in the U.S. where you can fly right into the island with many affordable airlines that offer choices depending on your budget. Now that I know how easy and affordable it is to fly there I will be visiting this island again because it is so convenient especially if you need to stay connected to your cell phone but want a more exotic tropical getaway then the rest of Florida has to offer. I'll tell you its got me thinking about relocation from my cold winters!
Best place in Key West!! Beautiful house with a great pool! My husband and I had the best time thanks to the Lost Shaker of Salt!
Just wanted to tell you that our stay at Casa de Vino was really wonderful. It is a beautiful condo and property, very spacious and impeccably maintained. Thanks for providing such a great place for us
I just wanted to tell you that our stay at Coral Hammock was amazing! We could not have been more pleased with the location, customer service from Key West Vacations and the accommodations! The condo was clean, spacious and had all the comforts of home. We will definitely return. Thank you!
This property was well maintained. Very spacious and an excellent view.
Great property! Convenient to everything Key West has to offer. The pool is just outside the back door and the area is lovely and quiet
