The "Bella Vita" is a totally renovated condo. Everything is brand new from floor to ceilings! located half a block from infamous Duval St., this beautiful 1 BR, 1 bath property is perfect for an island getaway.

The property also features a king size bed, cable TV in the living room and bedroom, dvd player, alarm clock/radio, hair dryer and a queen size sleeper sofa.
3 short blocks away is the southernmost point, which is a fantastic spot for watching the sun rise, or just snap a few quick photos for your vacation album. The shared porch is a great place to mingle with your neighboring vacationers or lounge with a drink and listen to the sounds of Key West. Work on your tan at our State Park Fort Zachary Taylor! Only two blocks away is South Beach (which is free) at the end of Duval on the Atlantic ocean. It is the southernmost beach in the continental U.S. Just a few feet away from South Beach is the Southernmost Beach Cafe which offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour!
Just a short bike ride away is Dante's Pool & Raw Bar located on the Historic Seaport at Conch Harbor. It's open to the public (children & pets welcome) with a large pool, full bar and grill. A block away at 300 Catherine St. is the Community Center. They have a large pool, picnic tables, basketball courts & playground.

Perfect place for a quiet couple!
Located at the opposite end of Duval Street from Sloppy Joes and the "main strip," in Old Town, the neighborhood was safe, quiet and elegant, yet still very accessible to everything. We rented bikes for the week which was, by far, the best mode of transportation on the island (and VERY reasonably priced - $110 for both of us for 8 days), which meant that with a quick 5 minute bike ride, we could be at the more touristy end of the island. The condo is literally steps from Duvall Street, 3 blocks from the Southern Most beach, and surrounded by fabulous restaurants. The avid foodies that my husband and I are, we didn't have one bad meal while on our trip, and generally dined at the restaurants within a 3-block radius of Bella Vita. While staying here, a new restaurant, Key West Pub, opened, and it's literally next door to the condo. Be sure to stop in there during your stay. The chef, Trent, prepares an amazing lobster slider that will keep you coming back for more! We also rode our bikes to Eaton Street Seafood Market and Fausto's (grocery store), and with the fully-stocked kitchen at the condo, we were able to prepare several fabulous meals ourselves too. There's also a CVS within walking distance too, for any last minute items which you many need/want. We frequented CVS for gallons of water and tons of sunblock!
The only qualm we had with the property was the patchy internet and TV signals. The internet worked best in the bedroom, and the TV signal was very patchy and often cut out for long periods of time. However, being on a trip to Key West, you shouldn't be interested in watching TV at all anyways, so it wasn't an urgent issue for us. Upon our arrival though, Kevin, the maintenance man, was fully aware of and working to resolve the internet/TV issues.
You surely won't be disappointed with your stay at Bella Vita and we HIGHLY recommend it to any/everyone!
