Updated: May 24, 2015
Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

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. There are plenty of shops and restaurants well within walking distance, or if you prefer making meals yourself, it comes with a fully equipped kitchen. 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. Key West is a two by four mile island connected to the mainland by a chain of 57 bridges. The average temperature is 77 degrees. People get around by bicycle, walking, electric cars, taxis, or pedicabs. Key West has approximately 300 bars and restaurants. Key West is considered "close to perfect, far from normal."

"Bella Vita"
Key West Lower Florida Keys

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5
It was our first trip to Key West so we took a chance with only reviews to go on and they definitely did not disappoint! Apartment was exactly as described and photos did not mislead even a little. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. The owners are great interior designers who obviously take pride in their properties. Very comfortable and well equipped - they've truly thought of everything. Tons of space with a decent closet for hang up stuffs. Kitchen was wonderfully equipped to eat in or eat out. Location was PERFECT. Steps away from Duval Street on the more quiet / family friendly end of town. We walked everywhere - nothing is too far. However, eventually our ambitions caught up with us and luckily there are rental places (bicycles, mopeds, and golf carts) very close in either direction. WiFi is weak but we weren't there to work and our phones received decent signals. First floor apartment has only two steps in addition to a handicap accessible ramp to enter the property in case this is a consideration for others. As well, the shower has a low step/walk in which had enough room for a portable bench if needed.

Beautiful apartment in a great area of Key West. Except for the oppressive heat, this would have been a perfect vacation. The accomodations were excellent. A really beautiful apartment with bright colors and high end finishes. The owner even has his own artwork on the walls available for purchase. Highly recommended!

Perfect place for a quiet couple!

We stayed last week in this beautiful condo a 1/2 block off of Duval. It was away from all of the noise of the crazy nightlife, but close enough for you to get to and be a part of it. The condo was beautifully decorated with all of the amenities you could ever think of. While there are a few pools in the area you can pay for, our favorite was Dante's by the wharf. Don't go to Key West for the beaches, but definitely do go for fun and stay here!!

The condo was absolutely perfect in every way! It's in a great part of Key West that appeared to be fairly quiet at night. We rented bicycles which made getting around Key West very convenient. The condo is about a 3 minute bicycle ride from the Southernmost Beach and Cafe, and not more than a 10 minute ride from Mallory Square. Owners were very easy to do business with and everything about the condo is just as described in the listing. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody going to Key West!

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was absolutely perfect, in every way!!! My husband and I spent a week at Bella Vita for our wedding week and will absolutely continue to go back for many years to come. It has all of the desired ammenities: comfy bed, great linens & towels, spacious bathroom and shower, internet & cable TV, fully stocked kitchen, and most importantly, accessibility to EVERYTHING!! Deb & Wolfgang (property owners) were extremely great to work with and were very accomodating!
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!
