About the property

Ideal for one or two people. Murphy bed on main floor, full bed in loft.

The Coconut is an old cigar maker's house. Once upon a time it had multiple rooms for the cigar maker and his or her family. If you visit the Gato Building you will see a picture of a Ford Model T driving by the Coconut when Whitehead Street was a dirt road. Today Whitehead is bustling with activity and the Coconut has an open floor plan, celebrating the light, airy feel of sunshine and vacation.

The house sits on the edge of Bahama Village, a fun part of Key West where you will find the funkiness of roosters roaming the streets and men playing dominoes late into the evening. Blue Heaven and La Creperie are just a short stroll down the lane behind the light house. The Six Toed Cat and the Banana Cafe are also good eateries within two blocks.

The Key West Lighthouse and the Hemingway House are in the adjoining block. The Southernmost Point is at one end of Whitehead and Mallory Square at the other. With coffee or drink in hand, you can turn one way to watch the sun rise, and turn the other way to watch the sun set. How's that for simple awesome living!

Fort Zachary Taylor and South Beach are within a short walk.

There is a community swimming pool within 3 blocks. There is no cost and it is a fabulous place to catch the sun ad swim with a fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean.

I chose this spot to live because everything is nearby. You'll love the simplicity of just walking out the door and finding everything close at hand.
