Tropical Retreat, at 519 Catherine Street, is on a quiet lane half a block off the upscale Upper end of Duval St. where there are many sophisticated restaurants, high-end art galleries and shops. Downtown Duval St. is within easy walking distance from Tropical Retreat to enjoy the exciting nightlife, music, bars and fun Key West has to offer. The Southernmost Point and the sandy beaches of the Atlantic are a short 4-block, 7 minute walk away.

Built in the 1920's, this incredibly spacious bungalow-style home has 12 foot high ceilings and large, sunny rooms. The main house includes a living room with queen sleeper sofa, dining room with a very large table to seat your group, a fully-equipped kitchen with high end features and fixtures and powder room. The 2 bedrooms feature a queen bed in one, the other with two twins which can be converted to a king bed. Each bedroom has an ensuite tiled bath. The third bedroom with king bed includes a private bath and efficiency kitchen and is in the stand-alone cottage adjacent to the pool at the rear of the property. The sunny 13' x 25' heated pool and deck sit in a totally secluded, private area surrounded by tropical and lush bougainvillea, hibiscus and palms.

Tropical Retreat also has the added bonus of off street private parking which makes it a rare gem in Old Town!

    Monica M from Lake Worth, Fl recommends this vacation rental

    This was the 2nd year we rented Tropical Retreat. We love the house, we love the location. Three steps from Duval St couldn't be any better. The only change we were not happy about was the owner went from central air conditioning to window units. Window units are VERY loud & the kitchen was VERY hot because there was no unit in there. I hope the property owner will replace or repair the central air conditioning. Otherwise, we were very satisfied with the house.

    • Manager Responded on 8/8/2014

      Thank you for your comments and being a return guest. We just wanted to make sure that you knew that the window units were only temporary while we were waiting for a special order part for the central A/C. It is being fixed as I am writing this so it will be ready for your next visit! Thanks again and see you soon in paradise!

    The house is wonderful. Great location. Quiet much bigger than the pictures let you believe. Real estate agency was wonderful the house had everything we needed. Would definitely come back to this house and Especially with this real estate office. Thanks for a wonderful time The only problem was garbage needs to be picked up more than once a week. The smell and flys were awful from the garbage

    Great spacious house, good location. House was stocked with blankets and all we needed. We did notice there is no cushion on the front porch swing, ouch! No salt and pepper shakers either, and 2 noticed ants right when we arrived with out coolers. All and all perfect experience and comfortable stay.

    a guest from Tulsa, OK recommends this vacation rental

    Rented this wonderful little house for a week in June. The pool and house did not disappoint. It is just a half block off of Duval Street. A Circle K Convenience Store is 2 blocks away. Room to park 2 cars in the drive. LaTeDa is a half block away and has a nice bar and restaurant on the premises. Property was very well maintained with daily maid service. The 3rd bedroom is in a structure off of the house but has excellent facilities (shower/small fridge/microwave/coffee maker). If I had to whine about something, the stove was a bit tempermental (heat was slow to come up). Would definitely go back!

    Misty W from Charlotte, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed here for my Bachelorette party and it was the perfect house to accomodate a group of girls, it was big enough to allow us to not feel like we were on top of each other, but also very cozy. The beds were the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The pool was heated, which was incredible, and we fully came to appreciate after we went to an unheated pool party. The location was ideal. It wasn't as close to the nightlife, but we enjoyed the walk. We expected to have to make a trip to the grocery store, but there were so many affordable restaurants near by, we didn't need to. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Tropical Retreat could not have been a better pick for us. And for as many of us that were showering, there was always a constant supply of towels. We loved it and are looking forward to returning!

    Jody L from Valparaiso, IN recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I rented the Tropical Retreat for our family to stay in during our wedding in Key West. They had nothing but good things to say about the house. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The pool is huge and the water temp. was perfect. The location is great too. They could get to the main streets such as Duval or Simonton ,to shop or eat, within minutes. The free ride to and from the airport(in an Escalade) was an added bonus especially since the cab fare is so expensive! They really had no complaints and would definitely stay there again. Just rent this place and you'll be happy!

    Frances A from Deland, Fl recommends this vacation rental

    We really enjoyed the house. The pool was great. My grandson loved it.
    The location couldn't be better. There was a deli one block away and Duval was 1/2 block away! We were able to walk most places.
    Only negative- lots of construction on block and in Key West right now.
    Camille's restaurant on the corner was great and a small shopping center with a CVS was convenient.

    Rick H from Key West, FL recommends this vacation rental

    This was our second trip to Key West staying with this company. The staff was incredibly helpful and attentive. This home was in one of the best locations! Half a block to Duval St but far enough to be able to relax in the private pool. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds we very comfortable. I can't wait for the 3rd trip!
