Secluded Casa - Monthly Rental

Bedrooms 1
Space 700 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 28 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Large Ground Floor Condo, Private Deck, Shared Heated Pool

Monthly rental, makes island living easy. It's a spacious, warm, and inviting one bedroom unit in a four unit building, much larger than many other one bedroom homes in Key West. The home is located in the Casa Marina District close to Higgs Beach on the Atlantic, Southernmost Point, and Duval Street. It's a great location, convenient to any activity in Old Town Key West.

The main entrance to the condo unit is through French doors at the back of the property, off a tropical courtyard setting with a heated pool. Step up onto the newly renovated deck just feet from the pool, through the doors and into an open concept living room, dining area, and kitchen. The floors are covered with warm natural fiber rugs over hardwood. The living room is inviting with a full sized resort quality pull-out sofa bed, chairs, and an HDTV that swivels to be seen from the kitchen, dining, and living rooms. Two ceiling fans circulate overhead adding to the island feel.

The kitchen is white with granite countertops and is fully equipped with all the things you need to cook a great meal during your stay. While one of you cooks, the other can sit at the kitchen counter bar and share a glass of wine. The dining area, with a glass top table, has four chairs to accommodate you and your guests.

The bedroom is large with a queen sized bed and two dressers, one with a large mirror. There is also a flat screen TV for those late night movies in bed.

All of the rooms have plenty of windows which overlook the pool and gardens and bring in lots of natural light. Windows have blinds for privacy.

The pool area is large and covered with Chicago pavers that surround the heated pool with soothing waterfall. Bougainvillea and tall palms cover the back fence providing the privacy you'd expect. Sit on the apartment's deck or venture into the courtyard to meet friends or other condo guests for a glass of wine or martini. A couple of lounge chairs are available if you want to relax and read a book or catch some sun. The property also has a bike rack for parking your bikes if you should choose to either bring or rent them. Walking and biking are the best way to explore Key West!

The condo is just yards away from El Siboney, which is the most popular Cuban restaurant in Key West. It's great for a last minute meal if you don't feel like cooking and haven't made other plans. We highly suggest the roast pork #1 on the menu!

About Vic Borowski

My wife Beth and I live and work in the Washington DC area. We've raised two great kids who are living close by. We love Key West and try to get down as often as possible. When we can't, we share our place with others.

Vic Borowski purchased this condo in 2011

Why Vic Borowski chose Old Town

My wife and I had been enjoying Key West for well over 15 years when we decided to buy a property. What drew us to this property was the garden and pool area, which we saw first. Once inside, the rooms are large and we knew immediately that this was the property for us. The location is very convenient to everything, especially to Higgs Beach, where we enjoy spending afternoons under a palm, enjoying a beverage, talking, reading, or just watching the people.

What makes this condo unique

The back of the house, which has been transformed into the living/dining room and kitchen, opens onto the deck and pool area. The French doors open onto the deck bringing the outside inside and creating an extension of the indoor living space. You have great views of the backyard space from the living area and kitchen. The bedroom is in the front of the house, where the living room used to be at one time. There is a door from the bedroom out to the front of the house, but you'll never need to use it. Entering through the back of the house is much more fitting and charming!

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to find Secluded Casa on VRBO, where we enjoyed a month-long stay in March. The owners are wonderful people to work with--very responsive and accommodating. The condo is one of four (only two of which are rentals) within a beautiful compound that is ideally located in a quiet neighborhood of Key West. Much of the island, including the Atlantic beaches, is within easy walking or biking distance. The property is extremely clean, well maintained and nicely decorated. The thoughtful amenities (including a lighted make-up mirror in the bedroom!) contributed to our comfortable stay. We plan to return next year to this idyllic spot!

The perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Lived here for a month and loved it, loved it, loved it. Secluded Casa is a beautiful place in a great location. It is fully equipped and has everything you might need. The pool is great and the view of the pool from the house is beautiful, day and night. When I arrived, I found that the place was perfectly clean. Location: easy walk to just about everywhere. 8 minutes to Fausto’s grocery store, 8 minutes to Duval St, 10 minutes to CVS pharmacy, 12 minutes to the free community lap-swimming pool. Bottom line, a very comfortable place in a beautiful setting and a great location! I look forward to returning some day soon!

Wonderful Place. Rent it. No Hesitations.

  • 5 of 5

Spent most of the month of May here. The condo exceeded my expectations. The space is well designed and feels even larger than it is. The unit is also well decorated and comfortable. The kitchen has all the cooking apparatus you need or want. The bedroom is spacious, the bed is comfortable and there is plenty of bureau space for clothes (like most Old Town rentals, not a lot of closet space, but you probably don't need it). The central AC works very well as do the ceiling fans -- this can be important in Key West so I wanted to mention it. The living room has a set of french doors that look out to the garden and pool area. Lovely view and the pool is very well maintained. Every Monday morning the pool service was there to do their thing. In fact the whole building as well as the unit is scrupulously maintained.

The location is a short walk or bike to Higgs beach, a block to El Siboney a popular local Key West Cuban restaurant (great inexpensive food) and a short bike ride to Duval St. In fact you can walk to the "quiet end" of Duval very easily. Nice thing about the location is that you are not in the hustle and bustle but close to it. Best of both worlds.

Finally, just want to say the owners are very easy to deal with and very responsive. We took care of the rental contract and payment with a couple of text messages and a couple of emails. They couldn't be nicer or the process simpler.

I have done a number of rentals in Key West and I enthusiastically recommend this rental.

Small piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

I rented the unit in March 2017.

The unit is perfect .

It is beautifully and comfortably decorated.

It has all the amenities and storage you could need.

It is conveniently located and within walking distance to everything-beach-Duvall street-grocery store-churches and wherever you want to go.

The pool is an added bonus, larger than most in Key West, and heated in the "winter" so it was always the perfect temperature.

The neighbors were very friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions of things to do and places to each.

All in all in was the perfect rental property and if you are looking to spend a month in Key West you won't do better than Secluded Casa. 👍�👍�

very nice staying in Key West

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 weeks at SecludedCasa and it was wonderful. The condo is very nice and clean, with everything you need.It is on United Street, it is about 10 minutes walking from Duval, CVS is 5 minutes away and the restaurants are very close.The pool is nice, it was cleaned every Monday. In the condo you had 2 TVs, internet, the kitchen has everything you need and I liked the library, I read a lot of books. It has its own parking space and the owners very polite and helpful, we were in contact all the time. I would like to come again :-) and I would recommend the property to everyone.
