Your space. Your vacation lifestyle. The Quilted Giraffe provides both. This two-bedroom, two full bath home welcomes you from its quiet neighborly front porch facing tree-lined Elizabeth street to its private deck and heated pool in the rear. The location called Solares Hill is a part of Old Town Key West that brags about being the highest elevation on the island, all of eighteen feet above sea level. Whatever the altitude, this Hill location is central to everything from the Historic Seaport to Duval Street, yet it's removed enough to be your get-away-from-it-all haven.

This two-bedroom, two full bath home welcomes you from its quiet neighborly front porch facing tree-lined Elizabeth street to its private deck and heated pool in the rear. The location called Solares Hill is a part of Old Town Key West that brags about being the highest elevation on the island, all of eighteen feet above sea level. Whatever the altitude, this Hill location is central to everything from the Historic Seaport to Duval Street, yet it's removed enough to be your get-away-from-it-all haven. (NOTICE: This homeowner requires Guests who pay by Credit Card to pay a 3% additional processing fee to cover credit card costs.) The inviting rectangular pool on the back half of the property sparkles topaz in the midday sun or is equally inviting in shimmering moonlight. A pristine wooden deck and luxuriant tropical foliage surround it. The backdrop to all this natural beauty is a ten-foot wood fence that creates privacy and adds to the ambience. The deck extends up to the back of the house-some of it open to the sky with ample room to lounge in the sun, some roofed for when you prefer the shade. The covered area also features a convenient outdoor shower, barbeque grill, and table with chairs. A Casablanca ceiling fan above circulates delightful tropical air tinged with the sweet smell of jasmine and gardenia. From the deck, you enter the house through classic French doors. This light-filled room is an informal den featuring deep arm chairs, an ottoman, and an L-shaped couch configuration perfect for conversation, watching TV, or gazing through the doors and the floor-to-ceiling windows to the deck and pool. The wall opposite the windows and doors features a long maple cabinet that holds the TV, framed pictures of local scenes, and art objects with drawers below. A sisal area rug brings the room together visually and creates a cushiony surface for bare feet. Ascending up a carpeted staircase from the den, you'll find the second story master bedroom and full bath with a double sink and ample ambient light. The walls are polished pine with white accents; white louvered doors cover generous closet spaces. Above the king bed, which offers an inviting stage for a great night's sleep, are two rectangular windows showcasing palm fronds waving in outside breezes. As in all the rooms in the Quilted Giraffe, the outside and inside seem to be intentionally intertwined. Back downstairs, next to the den, there's a second bedroom with twin beds steps from the second full bath. Down a short hall way, past a colorful painting called La Bodeguita Del Medio, is the kitchen featuring every appliance you could need and a handy pass-through to the dining table and chairs. Above the counters and cabinets is a shelf and window where colorful glass pieces glisten in the sunlight, lending elegance and interest to the predominately white kitchen. A wall-mounted spirit mask with full bark dress guards the living room, imparting a sense of calm and spiritual empowerment to all who enter the Quilted Giraffe. The unusual hanging looks great and sets the tone for other African and Cuban art throughout the house. Colorful pillows in tropical hues decorate the couch and echo the art work thoughtfully arranged on the walls.

This cottage is perfect for a couple, with occasional visitors. Walking distance to everything, away from the Duval madness, and reflecting the owner's taste, this rental is first rate.

The heated pool and lush backyard foliage were the draw to this well appointed home. Parking was a nightmare, the neighbor to the right facing the house was most unpleasant. A parking spot in the front yard would be recommended. The location was excellent for...More
