Photos and Description of this Old Town holiday house

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


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.


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.


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.

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.

Wonderful Key West house right by all the action!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Best Location - Exceeded expectations for 5 adults

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nicely decorated and clean, matching the pictures from the listing. The only change is that there is now a spiral staircase leading up to the loft bedroom, which I'm sure is easier to use than the previously pictured "ladder" type stairs. We had one adult sleeping up there, which was comfortable, but two would be tight.

The one negative about this house is that there is very little storage area for bikes. We struggled to get them in and out of the fence every time. But we managed. We had no problem finding (car) parking on the street the week that we were here.

The best part of this house (other than the location) was the large heated pool. Sometimes on listings they try to make a very small pool look large by using a deceiving lens for the photos. We were not disappointed by the size or quality of the pool. Very large compared to other houses we have rented on the island, and so nice to have it heated. It got good sun for most of the day.

If you are not familiar with Key West, let me just say this: this location is perfect. It is far enough from Duval (two blocks) that you don't actually have spill-over on your doorstep, but still SO CLOSE. And situated close to the stores/restaurants on the Bight like Half Shell and Pepe's. It's always nice to have a bike to get around Key West, and if you want to go to the beach, but you really have everything you need in easy walking distance.

My family would definitely rent here again, or at other properties managed by Truman and Company/Best of Key West Rentals. They were very easy to work with.
