Mmmm... You'll catch a view of the ocean where the full moon rises with a soft salt southern breeze. Originally built in the late 1800's as a cigar makers' cottage the authentic exterior of this turn-of-the-century cottage is protected by historic preservation rules and today stands renovated to form, to be proud and handsome. But the interior is an entirely different story. Inside the owners had creative license to redesign in order to bring the cottage upscale modern vacation standards with all the luxurious accoutrements. Ideally located right at the top of Upper Duval Street and just down from Key West's South Beach this historic residential cottage received a beautiful renovation and now offers 5-Star resort quality amenities. Inside the 'Havana Moon' cottage you find a complete transformation with a decidedly upscale minimalist renovation design and decorum that is understated and elegant. The designer for this cottage combined quiet modern and traditional furnishings with subtle colors and elegant artwork that sets a tone of calmness and relaxation. The original high ceilings create a spacious feel and newly added recessed lighting gives a dramatic flare as well as extra light. Stained pine wood floors have been completely refinished to show off the organic multi-patterned wood grain. A big fan of classicism, the designer of the cottage kept the orderly fashion of the original interior structure that is characteristic of the historic 'shotgun house,' while transforming it into two luxurious bedroom suites. We begin our description of this cottage at the front entrance which steps you right into the common 'hall room' that heads straight away to the back door. Off this main common room, on the right side of the house, a symmetrical row of interior rooms proceed from the front of the cottage to the back. The first door on your right leads to the front bedroom and beautiful en suite bathroom offering a vintage style 'free standing' sink and a double-wide shower large enough for two. Brilliant white tile glistens from floor to ceiling. The front bedroom is elegant and luxurious and provides a queen size bed and a wall mounted flat screen TV. Tasteful furnishings, artistic light fixtures and elegant wall art evoke a tropical theme. The brand new modern 'U-shaped kitchen,' complete with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, grey granite counter tops, and dark tile flooring is the next room down the line. Recessed lighting and brilliant white cabinets brighten the kitchen and make it all the more inviting as a space to cook and entertain. The kitchen is open to the wide 'sitting hall' which at this point becomes the interior gathering and common seating space for the cottage. The last room down the hall at the back of the house is the spacious back bedroom with en suite bathroom. For this bedroom the designer chose a dark wood wicker head board for the queen size bed and placed a collection of artful sepia tone botanical prints on the walls. As with the front bedroom it offers a wall mounted flat screen TV. The en suite bathroom for the back bedroom is very spacious and is handicap accessible. This is a unique feature for a private vacation home residence and is convenient for anyone traveling with some mobility issues, just keep in mind there are a few steps in the front where you enter the cottage. Finally, at the end of the hall, it's time to check out the fenced back yard. To meet modern luxury vacation standards, the original back yard was transformed to a nice size swimming pool and large concrete sun deck for pool side sunning. Back around the front of the cottage is the covered sitting porch. Pretty wicker furnishings have been placed for guests to sit and watch the world of Key West go by. Each bedroom is a suite with its own en-suite luxury bath. Activities: Elegant Upper Duval St. - Close to the Southern Most Point of the United States. The beach is just down the street to your left, so when you've had enough pool and porch time you can head for South Beach for some sun and good food. There is a great open air beach side restaurant there with a full bar and excellent beach side menu. And right across the street is the Coffee and Tea house where you get your caffeine and then heat down Duval Street for shopping and sight seeing. Cafe neighborhood features art galleries, wonderful eateries and internationally famous fine restaurants,fine gift and clothing stores, Grand Vin wine tasting, home made ice cream. Here you start at the top of Duval St. near the Atlantic Ocean and can take the 20 min stroll to the Gulf of Mexico (remember it takes 3 to 4 Key West streets to equal the distance of a typical city block). Sailing, boating, diving, museums, nightlife. More

The Havana Moon was a great cottage to stay in. The place was immaculate and the pool was a great perk. The staff at Vacation Home of Key West was easy to work with. I would definitely stay here again.
