Overview

Photos and Description of this Old Town holiday house

3B/ 2Ba Home with Large Master Suite, Updated Kitchen, Outdoor Dining & Porch!

THE HEART OF OLD TOWN...

Charming Old Town home in the heart of Key West. Located on Southard Street just steps from Duval's many restaurants and bars. You are in walking distance to museums, shopping, and Fort Zachary Taylor beach. Relax on the front porch and watch the people walk by while sipping a cocktail or reading a book.

SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS AND FURNISHINGS...

This home has a beautiful, large master suite just off the front porch with an adjoining spacious bath that offers a shower/tub combo and a hanging closet. Although the room is surrounded by windows that fills the room with soft, natural light, there are also blinds that offer privacy and shade for guests. There is a flat screen and dresser for your convenience. An office space is located down the hallway on your way to the quaint living room with open vaulted ceilings.

Walk up the spiral staircase to find 2 twins beds in a quiet loft, that can convert to a king, overlooking the kitchen and sitting area which has a pull out couch for two additional guests. The updated private guest bathroom is located just off the renovated kitchen with a breakfast bar for 3, stainless steel appliances, and custom cabinetry. The guest room has a queen size bed with a hanging closet, luggage rack, flat screen and a dresser.

POOL AND OUTDOOR LIVING...

French doors open to the private 40' heated pool with a back deck and two lounge chairs where you can spend the day in peace and quiet under the tropical landscaping. The back deck also has a grill and table that are ideal for dining Al Fresco. Your best friend can enjoy the fully fenced yard in this pet friendly home as well.

Nice house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Nice house for 2 couples. On bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, the second bedroom utilizes the bathroom that opens into the kitchen. There is also a loft space bedroom that we did not use. The house was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, which was great as we got a lot of fresh seafood at the Eaton St. Seafood Market which is a short walk from the house.

The outdoor area is very nice and private. Unfortunately there were a number of discarded cigarette butts and some broken glass around the perimeter of the pool.

The location is fantastic. You are a short walk to Duval St. and to Fausto's Food Palace - a great local grocery store - as well as a couple of "off the main drag" restaurants.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, First let me say we are terribly upset to hear you encountered the cigarette butts and broken glass by the pool! Our property managers spend a great deal of time at each house inspecting and ensuring the home is in ship shape for our guests. However, they do not find all the issues every time and apologize for this occurrence during your stay. We will pay close attention to the pool grounds to ensure this does not occur again! Cigarettes butts are gross but the glass is a hazard so we are just relieved to hear no one was hurt! In the future, we ask that when guest find something not up to standard, like this situation, to please reach out to their property manager and/ or our office so we may have the opportunity to remedy the situation. This is what we are here for and we are more than happy to pop on over to the rental and fix anything necessary! We are thrilled you enjoyed the home and location otherwise! Thank you for focusing on the positives you found in the home and pointing out details you enjoyed! This is always so helpful to other guests to hear others' experiences to know if this home is a great fit for them as well. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to exceed your expectations in the future with a flawless stay at either Lost Shaker of Salt or another one of our rentals. Best, Regan Butler Office Manager

Great house just the right distance from Duvall

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely! It's well-appointed and the perfect size for two couples. We actually had 5 adults and were pretty comfortable. The loft is probably better suited for kids/teens, but it wasn't terrible for adults. The pool is very pleasant. The house is a short walk from Duvall St. but far enough away that you don't hear noise from the bars at night. We walked to all of our activities - Duvall St., Mallory Square, the marina, Southernmost Point, etc. The house has all the kitchen comforts of home, which is great if you want to dine in instead of dining out every meal.

Love this perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Clean, cute, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The Lost Shaker of Salt is adorable, clean, and truly has a great location! A bunch of people rented houses, apartments, etc and we truly had the best house. You can't beat the location to Duval and Front, truly close to everything. The beds were comfy, linens and towels in abundance. The master bathroom had just been redone and is beautiful. The kitchen has everything you need. Just note the third bedroom is a loft. Our son loved it. Two adults could sleep up there no problem. It is open to downstairs, so early risers a must. The pool was spotless too. Truman was great to rent with. The outside garbage was full with yard clippings when we arrived and they came to take care of that immediately. I was hesitant with my 20 month old and the pool but I rented a play area from The Hip Tourist and kept the door locked. Rent this house, it is great. We will absolutely rent again.
