Pictures do not do this home justice. It’s location is excellent having an approximate 10 minute walk to either end of Duval while still being on the smallest, quiet lane possible. My wife and I were extremely pleased in dealing with both the owner, and representative Wendi. Most of our time was spent in the rear of the home enjoying the hot tube, hammock, outdoor shower, and patio area. The kitchen was fully stocked; however, with all the restaurant choices in the area, it’s hard to actually cook home. We highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to get away, but still likes the ability to quickly find themselves in the heart of Key West. Thanks for letting us enjoy your little slice of paradise.

It's named the Seashell Cottage, but it's more than a cottage, It's indeed Paradise. Everything about it is perfect from the kitchen to the outdoor shower to the Jacuzzi. You need not bring anything but yourself and high expectations. Janet and I had a faboulous time and look forward to returning again. Location, Location, Location.

“We'll be back (hopefully at Seashell)”
Reviewed 2 December 2011 for a stay in November 2011

Ideal, quiet location. Duval Street can be somewhat noisy but Seashell is the ideal distance away when you want some peace & quiet but is still just a leisurely walk away. Facilities at Seashell are ideal for a couple & the outside shower is a bonus so much so that we didn't use the inside shower. Gas barbecue, hammock & hot tub were well used - Having washer / drier was a bonus. Dealing with owner Carolyn & Wendi an excellent example of Key West hospitality. Places to eat out (when not barbecuing ) Bo's Fish Wagon (best conch fritters & don't be put off by the appearance), Pepe's Cafe ( opposite Bo's), El Siboney at Mallory Square. Places to have a swally (Scots for having a drink) Capt Tony's off Duval & Schooner Wharf Bar - All being well we'll be back & hopefully staying at Seashell.

“Beautiful Cottage That Is Walking Distance To Most Everything”

Seashell Cottage has everything you would need for a week of vacation! We truely did have a more "authenic experience" than staying at a hotel. It is well maintained, very clean, and has the most tropical charm of any place I've ever stayed. We loved using the outdoor shower and sitting on the front porch swing to have coffee. The lane is quiet for being so close to Duval Street. It was nice to be close enough to walk down Duval St to watch the sunset celebration at Mallory Square and also to the marina to go on the Fury Ultimate adventure, which is also highly recommended. I would definately stay here again and recommend to any small party who wants to vacation in Key West!
