Mojitoville is perfect for the discriminating guest who wants to enjoy close proximity to Key West's Historic Seaport with its fine fishing, restaurants and activities and also to Duval Street.

The perfect location, 1 block to the Eaton Street Seafood market and Old Town Bakery or 2 blocks to the Conch Republic Seafood Company, Cole's Peace Artisan Breads, Half-Shell Raw Bar, Turtle Kraals, Schooner Wharf Bar and a stroll around the Seaport or just 4 blocks to Duval Street, completely renovated Mojitoville will amaze you with the detailing (beautifully refinished original wooden floors and Dade County pine walls), decorating and attention to detail! On the Historic Register and also sporting an Old Island Restoration Foundation designation, sit on the front porch and watch the world go by or enjoy the totally private landscaped rear deck, heated pool and gas BBQ grill!

The historic cottage features two bedrooms, one with king pillow top bed, 42' wall flat screen TV the other with queen pillow top bed, 42' flat screen TV. Also, the wonderful loft has two twin beds and a private sitting area for relaxing as well as a small wall-mounted flat screen TV.

The master king bedroom features an en-suite bath with shower and hair dryer, the second bath off the hallway and close to the circular stairs to the loft includes a tub, hair dryer and W/D.

The great room with vaulted ceiling at the rear of the cottage has a vaulted ceiling and double French doors across the wall that open up to a wooden deck surrounded for privacy with fencing and tropical foliage, heated pool with table and chairs. The great room consists of a living room and kitchen. The living room features a 32' Phillips flat screen (which is adjustable for sweeping movement and viewing), and comfortable, intimate seating.

The elegant and fully equipped kitchen with vaulted ceiling has a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator with ice-maker, stove, garbage disposal, glass top stove, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and everything you could desire to prepare a gourmet feast! There is a newly refinished and repaired Tamarind dining table with 6 teak dining chairs just though the French doors on the deck, and a high bar/dining table in the kitchen area that seats four..

Since Hurricane Irma we have: replaced all rear area fencing and most rear area plantings; had the pool refinished; replaced the pool filter; had the tamarind table repaired and refinished; and repaired the air conditioning. We have also installed a new Bosch refrigerator/freezer and a new on demand hot water heater. Whew!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Bill and Stacy. It was delightful having you stay at Mojitoville. You are welcome back anytime in the future. A month long rental is not for everybody and we are pleased that you found it to be a good one.

Best of the Best!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in Key West for the past 35 years and Mojitoville is the best rental we have ever booked.We love every thing about the house. The house is well maintained and it is in a safe location where you can almost walk to any where on the Island you choose.The owners are the most honest landlords that I have ever dealt with in all my years of visiting Key West. They bend over backwards to make you stay great ! Back in June-July 2018 Fran and David Brown

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you so much for the very kind review. We have loved having you stay with us in the past and we're glad that you are back with us this summer.. We work hard to provide an good experience for our renters, an experience that we would want for ourselves. We have many family and friends who stay with us but it is renters who make it possible for us to own a home in "paradise". Thank you. You'll be happy to know that since Hurricane Irma chased you out of Key West in September we have made many changes/updates/improvements. We have: replaced the pool filter that went bad; refinished the pool; replaced all rear fencing; replaced rear planting beds; refinished and repaired the tamarind table; replaced the shower control in the master shower; repaired the shower control in the main bathroom; repaired the air conditioning and replaced the filter system; updated the dinnerware and wineglasses. And by the time that you arrive in June we plan to have a new 4-seat pub table in the kitchen to replace the 2-seater that is there now. Tom and Susan

Everything the same as before Irma

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed to not only the property but the island post Irma. Very little damages or change. Some foliage missing and minor cosmetic damages but all in all, very good shape. Mojitoville fair equally as well. So glad we went and can not wait to go again. Love Tom, Ruzena and all the Conchs :)

Highly recommend, again, to all those even thinking about going. You will not be sorry.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Dan. It's nice having friends in the home. Glad that the post-Irma visit worked out well for you folks. The next time you visit the pool will be re-plastered, the fences will be replaced and the plantings will be restored. Have a great winter. Tom and Susan

Mojitoville - Piece of Paradise on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Mojitoville was the perfect setting for our 1 month, KW vacation. Everything was provided and the amenities made our stay so easy. Right in the center of all the city's activities, sites and restaurants we were in walking distance of most of the popular attractions. The private pool was the icing on the cake.

Great house in a Great location!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Mojitoville for just over a month. The house is very comfortable and the location can't be beat! I spend a lot of time in Key West and have stayed in many long term vacation rentals all over Old Town and this was by far my favorite! I loved the proximity to Eaton St. Seafood Market and the Mojitoville kitchen and outdoor gas grill had everything I needed to cook up some fresh seafood!

The entire house was well decorated and stocked with everything I needed. There are also many helpful labels and notes explaining where things are and how to control lights, ceiling fans, TV's, etc.

I look forward to staying at Mojitoville again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your gracious words, Tom. Like you, we love the location. We find it interesting that we are getting so many rentals from couples and singles even though there is room for 6 in the house. I guess that the location is our best selling point. Again, thanks. I hope that we cross paths once again at Shots and Giggles. I'll buy you a shot and we'll try to make you giggle! Tom and Susan
