Outras observações
We can loan you bicycles if you want to try biking and leave the car behind. The bikes are not included in your rental, but are available for you to use. They are fun and we try to keep them in top shape.

Imagine you are borrowing a friends bike. So if you have a flat tire or other minor repair you should take the bicycle to a bike shop at your own expense... sorry!!

We will not be able to reimburse you for that. If the bikes break down, you may have to rent one for yourself. We are not a bike shop.

LOCAL PLACES and SUGGESTIONS:
COFFEE / BREAKFAST SANDWICH SHOPS: For breakfast, any of several coffee shops for a buchi or a cafe con leche and a delicious egg and Cuban bread sandwich. The closest are the Corner sandwich shop on Bertha which is on the way to Smathers Beach, and the “Best Coffee in Key West” shop on White St on the way downtown. Both about 4 blocks away.
NEARBY SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS: White St is nearby and has just about everything you need. Go left towards downtown and right on White Street. There is a laundromat with the “Best Coffee in Key West” coffee shop for good sandwiches. A block or two more is the White Street Cafe which serves a nice breakfast and lunch. Next to that is Mo's Restaurant which I highly recommend if you like Caribbean Creole Cuisine. He makes an oxtail dinner that is to die for. Fausto's grocery store has just about everything plus wine and beer. Past Fausto's there is Oasis - a restaurant which has been recommended to me, they serve food. Across from Al-Meida is Sandy’s a 24-hour sandwich shop which is a Key West institution.
FAVORITE RESTAURANTS IN KEY WEST: My favorite places in no particular order: Seafood and such - the Flaming Buoy (has recently moved – new location is just off Duval) Cuban comfort food family style - El Siboney (close by), 915 on Duval for eclectic food – try the upstairs balcony for the people watching! Harpoon Harry’s (for breakfast with the locals – arrive early it’s busy) Little Pearl and Seven Fish for fish, Cafe Soleil (for medium haute cuisine, great wine list and the best Hog Snapper in creation) Best sunset dinner - Hot Tin Roof , Good basic food - Two Friends (for peel and eat key west shrimp), Antonia's on Duval Street (for great Italian and an unusual lasagna) , La Ti Da for brunch on Duval Street, the Rooftop Café very near Mallory Square, Louie's Backyard (for great ocean view good seafood, and extra snooty waiters) Salute on the Beach (good drinks and dinners - nearby) Mo's Restaurant on White St. – nearby- (to die for Goat Curry and Oxtail Stew!) and of course Dairy Queen (right around the corner on United Street).
A friend recommended Latitudes on Sunset Key for lunch – reservations required and the ferry ride over is included – I’m told its great food without the eye-watering prices they charge at dinner time.
Farther afield check out the Roostica on Stock Island (highly recommended). If you miss all those people you left behind in Ohio or Michigan, you’ll find them all at the Hogfish on Stock Island. I’m sorry to report that the hogfish I was served at the Hogfish Bar and Grill on Stock Island was actually tilapia. Geiger Key Marina – this is the real Keys dockside hangout you’ve been looking for – you’ll know what I mean when you go there. Don’t tell anybody. The Square Grouper bar/lounge/restaurant on Cujoe Key is also highly recommended. I prefer the upstairs part. The place is worth the trip.
Note: Unless you plan to propose during dinner, tee shits, shorts and flip flops are okay for any restaurant in Key West. Feel free to dress up if you wish, we love costumes in Key West!

WHICH BEACH??:
I love the fact that on this little island there is always a beach close by. The weather, th4 season, and the temperature all have a strong effect on the conditions at the beaches. I recommend that you choose your beach depending on the wind strength, wind direction and time of year. Strong south winds bring in floating seaweed on the South side of the island, making Smathers Beach smelly and the water a little murky and unpleasant. North side beaches are typically seaweed-free. Wind is also a factor – mostly in the winter months. When the south/southeast wind is strong the south-facing beaches experience windy conditions and flying sand, stronger waves, and more seaweed. During a strong south wind I prefer the beaches on the north side of the island such as the Simonton Street beach and the Bum Beach, and the hidden but nice little Harbor Beach at Fort Zach.
LIST OF BEACHES AND SHORE PLACES: Here is a list of the beaches that are available to you in Key West. I start with the closest beach to the house, then continue in a clockwise direction around the island. There are probably some that I don't know about which I need to add. Please don’t take live animals or plants home from the beach! Touching or disturbing most plants and animals on the Florida reef is generally prohibited by law.
Smathers Beach is the biggest beach on the island, and my personal fave. This beautiful beach extends along the southern side of the island from the airport all the way to Bertha Street . The sand is soft, warm, and groomed and cleaned daily. Best beach views for that tropical instagram post. There are showers at the southernmost end of the beach near Bertha Street, and a new restroom about 1/3 of the way to the airport. All along the beach there are Cabanas where you can sit in the shade. At the southern end of there are volleyball nets, places to rent paddle boards, catamarans, chairs and umbrellas, and para-sail tour operators. The airport end is more natural and secluded and you will find kiteboarders setting up their gear here. The middle of the beach can be extremely quiet and secluded if it’s not a school vacation week. The snorkeling is good at this beach. Starting about 200 feet offshore - near the line of poles marking the swim area - the snorkeling is excellent when the waters are calm. Try not to stand up on the reef so you will not smash the plants and animals with your feet! Take pictures but please do not take souvenirs. Collecting or taking many costal reef animals or plants is prohibited by law. However you can keep things that wash up on the beach. Smathers is the best beach in Key West on days with light wind.

No Name Beach, (also called Key West Nature Preserve) a little-known and often empty, narrow, natural beach can be found by going straight down Thompson St which is the first street to the right of the house. A bigger section of the same beach can be entered at the end of George St – about a quarter mile away. This secluded beach is not cleaned or groomed and can sometimes be full of smelly seaweed. It has the best near-shore snorkeling on a calm day. No facilities. Again, please be kind to the reef and take pictures but not souvenirs.

Rest Beach is a tiny beach just to the north of the White Street Pier. I haven’t been on it. I hear it is wheelchair accessible. Restrooms within walking distance. Across from the bocce courts.

The White St. Pier Amazing place to see the sunset depending on the time of year. (The sunset is visible here from late November through late January more or less) You can bike out to the end. Great people watching. Aids memorial at the entrance. Bocce courts nearby.
The (unmentionable beach name) Is a narrow stretch of beach behind the West Martello Tower between the White Street Pier and Higgs Beach. Legend has it that this is a prime meetup spot for those in the know! West Martello Tower houses the Key West Garden Club which is a local gem and worth a look!

Higgs Beach is just a few blocks past West Martello Tower, is great spot for people watching, there's a nice restaurant there, there is a children's play area, a bocce court, a dog park, volleyball nets and more. Higgs Beach is a little rocky in places but definitely worth a look. The pier at Higgs was damaged by hurricane Irma but its finally open again! The “scene” at Higgs on a hot weekend day can get muy caliente.

Dog Beach is a tiny spot with soft sand right next to Louie's backyard restaurant. This small Beach is a Key West gem. It is soft and Sandy but can be wavy in a southerly wind. Locals and local dog owners love this spot. Lots of dogs like to visit here, so not sure how clean the sand is :P
Southernmost Beach is next to the Southernmost house, at the end of Duval Street . This very popular and crowded Beach also has a small Beach Café. I’m never impressed with the water quality at this beach. The end of Duval street has been turned into a nice pocket park. No locals go to this beach. We don’ t appreciate that the umbrella and chair rental guys have taken over the best part of this of the public beach and make it their private domain. The Southernmost Beach Café serves the usual stuff at high prices, but hey – it’s on the beach in Key West! ;)

Fort Zachary Beach Fort Zachary state park is amazing, worth an entire day. Admission is a few dollars. Concessions, multiple beaches, a great swimming, morning yoga on the beach, shady pine trees, a variety of places to relax, and much more. Oh, and a there is a Fort – never been there. Fantastic place to watch the sunset. Best sunset views for that tropical instagram post. Bring bug spray if critters like your taste. When the wind is light or from the north Fort Zachary is absolutely delightful and highly recommended. During a strong south wind it can be windy and difficult to swim there because of chunks of coral in the sand and heavy surf. Try the hidden beach that faces the cruise ship dock at the far south and west end if the wind is strong on the south- facing beaches. Sunsets from Fort Zach are not to be missed.

Mallory Square The swimming at Mallory Square is quite good, but recently signs have gone up saying the area is off-limits to swimmers. Strong currents – best for expert swimmers. There are ladders and the water is clean here. Swimming at sunset off of Mallory Square can be sublime. (A friend told me)

Simonton Street Beach is in Old Town at the end of Simonton Street. This beach is my absolute fave in the summer. The water is crystal clear and the sand is perfect. In the summer the sunset here is just as beautiful as at Mallory Square, plus you can relax on a chair or paddle in the water and watch the sun give its daily show! This little gem has a small parking lot and a neat cafe with delicious margaritas and quesadillas. Unfortunately, the city gave them a concession to completely cover the public beach with rental chairs and umbrellas, leaving almost none of the (did I say public?) beach for “normal” beachgoers. There is a strong current here. I have seen a manatee and sharks at this beach. All year round, this beach has a great view of the harbor and you can see all of the activity going on there. Can’t see the sunset here in the winter. Lap Swimmer’s tip: Just to the left of Simonton St beach is a large, safe, enclosed swimming area, in front of the adjacent hotel, that is a perfect place to do laps. Don’t tell anybody I told you!

Bum Beach/ Marriott Beachside Beach is at tip of the island near the Marriott Beachside. Update: A new fence has been added, but this area is ok to walk into. Just say you have a friend staying at the hotel. This beach is literally 20 feet wide but it is highly protected during a south wind and recommended for those days when the South Side beaches are just too windy to be pleasant. The water is warmer than on the ocean side, which is nice in the winter. The public part is a tiny area behind the seawall, less than 20 feet wide. The public beach joins the Marriott Beachside private beach to the right. I always park in the hotel parking structure and walk in on the private side, and the nice folks there have never hassled me. No nearby public parking, but you could park across the street. There are no bums, but some Key West characters who live out on the boats use this beach to land their kayaks. There is a place to rent paddle boards and jet skis at the nearby hotel, no room key required.

Nude Beach at Geiger Key
Heading either north or south on US 1, turn onto Boca Chica Road between mile markers 12 and 13. A few miles in, the road will end, and the beach will begin. Geiger Key Beach starts where Boca Chica Road abruptly ends, protecting unsuspecting travelers from driving too far down a road which exists only sporadically beyond that point. While stretches of paved sections still exist, they are impassible by automobile. For about half a mile all you can find is sandy, unkempt beach alongside the road, perfect for sunning or exploring the rocky shore. If you have children or you’re offended by nudity, it’s best to heed the sign’s warning. Although not a popular or crowded beach by any measure, some people come here to sunbathe in the nude. (I’ve never been to this one - description pasted from the internets)

Localização

Key West, Flórida, Estados Unidos

Our studio is an ideal place from which explore everything Key West and the area have to offer. It's walkable or bikeable distance to everywhere, and bikes are available to borrow from us. It's in a quiet area away from the craziness of the famous bar street downtown, but easy access to everything. The beach is only 5 blocks away.

We have a lock box - you may or may not meet us during your stay. We have and on-site manager to help you.

The studio is centrally located on a quiet street in KW near the midtown art district and very near the two main beaches. You can reach all of Key West in an easy 20 minute walk or a fun 10 minute bike ride.

Key west is flat and it's easy to bike everywhere. Getting around by bike is what everyone does on the island. You won't have to spend money to rent bikes... we provide two bikes free for your use.

The studio is not in the middle of the party area - where there is more noise and parking is impossible. The few extra blocks of distance from the famous bar street make our place perfect for people who want to be near everything but who also like peace and quiet and easy parking!
