About

About

THE PROPERTY: My Happy Place is an exemplary renovation of an historic, Key West house. It retains its original character and wisdom, but with up-to-date comfort and high-quality interior design.
Built in the shotgun style, the home’s front door enters a hallway that extends to the back of the house, with a master bedroom and adjoining bath, as well as a guest room and adjacent, second bathroom built off the left side. This architectural device both harmonizes indoor and out space and ventilates the rooms, as was necessitated in days before air-conditioning.

Through the numerous windows lie glimpses of greenery and sky that are tableaux of Key West’s unique island beauty. The décor favors a soft, beach-like palette of taupe, shell, sand, and driftwood, with textures like velvet, leather and woven fibers. A mix of wood panel and white-painted walls combine into a balance of coziness and brightness, as well as varied backgrounds for displaying tasteful works of art.

The homes in this stretch of Southard Street represent some of the grandest examples in Key West, revived and preserved throughout time. Newly refreshed with a sensitive and savvy eye, this vacation rental surrounds you in the texture of the past as well as all the comforts of modern times.

BED CONFIGURATION: One king bedroom with ensuite bathroom and one queen bedroom with adjacent bath.

OUTDOOR AMENITIES: Adorable 'cocktail pool' is right outside the backdoors, great for taking a dip, day or night! The front porch is fabulous for people watching and waving ‘Hey!’ like a good neighbor should.

PARKING: There is limited on-street neighborhood parking.

LOCATION: A majority of the tourist attractions are located here as well as numerous restaurants, shops and galleries. The neighborhood boasts historic homes, shotgun and conch style homes.?
NEARBY: Minutes to the beautiful Key West Cemetery in one direction, and less than a 10 minute walk to Duval Street, you’re in the heart of Key West. Margaritaville and Sloppy Joe’s are just minutes away!

PETS: This home is NOT pet friendly. (If you have pets, please browse through our many homes that are pet-friendly).

***Please note that the cleaning fee includes a full "mid-stay" clean***

***This monthly property requires a minimum stay of 28 nights and requires guests to check in on the 1st of each month***

We moved to “My Happy Place” late March 2020 just as the COVID pandemic started to affect Key West. Although it was a difficult time, the house was perfect! Very clean with beautiful art and furniture. The kitchen was extremely well-outfitted with good pots and pans and ample cooking gear. This was fortunate as we cooked all our meals at home since restaurants were closed except for takeout. The house is in Old Town and we were within walking distance of Fausto's Market and the fantastic Eaton Seafood. We really couldn’t have asked for a better location.
The house has a nice back patio with a small dipping pool. The landscaping is wonderful and well-tended. Lounge seating and a dining table with chairs and a large umbrella were much appreciated. It would have been nice to have an outdoor shower but that’s a small matter.
Inside was all good, the AC functioned perfectly, and the bathrooms were well stocked and very clean. We could have used more storage but we adjusted. There were three working televisions. We couldn’t have asked for a better long-term rental and we were especially happy with all the help we got from The Historic Key West Vacation Rental Team. Our stay was extended because of the Covid crisis and thankfully we got all the help we needed!

Manager's Response

Jessie, It looks like our Happy Place was YOUR Happy Place! It is a lovely property in a great location and a nice place to quarantine. I am sorry you didn't get to eat out but glad you were able to have great meals.. We appreciate your detailed review! Please come back and visit again under better circumstances!

We had a great time. Great restaurants. Weather was terrific this year so we spent at least a few hours every day at a beach. We took in some local theater a couple of times which was very good. The great thing about Key West is that there is always something going on somewhere. From this location all you have to do is walk there or ride your bike. It was our second time renting for a month in Key West. It was our first time at Smugglers Cove. The best thing about this property was it's proximity to downtown as well as the Harbor/Marina. It is fairly roomy. We had weekend guests a couple times. It worked out very well. It is fairly well appointed. However, after a month there were a few minor details which would have made our stay more pleasurable. We spent most mornings and early evenings on the front porch. Some landscaping and flowers in the front of the house similar to what is pictured would be nice. Although the kitchen is appointed with new appliances, the washer and dryer in the outdoor storage could be replaced. The gates in front of the property could use some maintenance. These aren't deal breakers, just some suggestions. I can't say enough about how responsive HKWVR was to all of our needs and requests. They were great to work with.
