Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

The Bahama House located at 508 Amelia Street is a historic Bahamian-style Conch cottage. It is a perfect example of turn-of-the-century island architecture. This modest two bedroom cottage, each with queen bed and TV (the master has a large flat screen), two full baths and queen sleeper-sofa is accented with Dade County pine walls, cathedral ceilings and island folk art, including original oil paintings, glass sculpture and antique furnishings. The dual head shower in the master bathroom can make for an intimate bathing experience for two or a hosing station for sandy kiddies. Modernity has not been sacrificed in the living room of this historical abode: a Bose Wave Radio/CD player, flat screen cable TV, DVD and private telephone line with answering machine and wireless internet help keep you connected to the outside world. And that's just the interior!

Upon entering the recently renovated large private covered porch you will sense that you are about to embark on a special getaway. Your eyes will be drawn to the tropical landscaping surrounding the private heated pool with waterfall. With outdoor dining for a family of six there is no reason not to BBQ that fresh catch on your gas grill! Or just sit in a rocker and sip that margarita while listening to Jimmy Buffet.

Despite the history, technology and artistry of the Bahama House, the most valuable feature is that old real estate maxim: location, location, location! With a private off-street parking place ? a rarity on this little island, you are just two doors down from the famous Duval Street, with just a short walk to the hustle of Sloppy Joe's, the Bahama House is central to all the action in Key West. Experience the history, culture, and adventure that living in the Bahama House affords.

All the amenities of a luxury property are included: fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, microwave, toaster and dishwasher. Indoor washer/dryer, A/C, ceiling fans, in-room safe, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, all linens and beach towels, Flat screen TV', a DVD player, Telephone, wireless internet, clock radios and CD player. Two full baths (with Aloe shower gel & Awapuhi shampoo).

The Bahama House was a GREAT Stay

  • 5 of 5
The house is perfect for 2 couples with nice beds and plenty of room. Nice Kitchen, and living area. The pool was great to come back to after a walk on Duval St. The house is literally 50 feet fron Duval Street. Beleive it or not is is exceptionally quiet. You would never know that Duval Street is so close. Excellent foilage out back shields you from everything. The maid showed up daily to make sure we had everything we needed. The pool needed water and they were there first thing to fill it for us. I can't say enough about the service. It is Truly a little piece of paradise. We'll certainly be back. If you want a great (but expensive) meal hit the Hot Tin Roof off of Mallory square. It was Exceptional.
