EXCELLENT LOCATION The gated compound is within easy walking or biking distance to everything in Old Town Key West, located at the corner of Thomas and Angela Streets - two (2) blocks from the center of Duval Street. In addition to being within easy walking and biking distance to Duval Street, and the best entertainment & dining on the island, the vacation property is located two (2) blocks from Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, the best beach and picnic area in Key West. CHICKENS & ROOSTERS The City of Key West protects chickens and roosters, and considers them as part of the history and charm of Key West. As a result, Key West and many of the islands throughout the Florida Keys have free-range chickens and roosters. You will definitely see and hear chickens and roosters during your stay in Key West. Some visitors to Key West love them, and some visitors hate them - personally, I enjoy them best roasted, with plantains, and black beans and rice! You, your friends, family and guests may come and go as you please, anytime during the rental term. We do require that all guests staying on or using the property, register with the owner prior to arrival. More

About the neighbourhood
The neighborhood is alive, dynamic, and surrounded by Key West History - unquestionably the most intact Old Town Key West neighborhood on the island. There are excellent restaurants within easy walking & biking distance, and Duval Street is only 2 blocks from the property - close enough, yet far enough away! Ft. Zachary Taylor, located only 2 blocks to the west of the property, is a National Historic Park and boasts the nicest beach with the best sunsets on the island.
Getting around
The best way to get around Key West is on a bicycle, which we have on the property available to our guests for a nominal fee - no need to rent bikes at an offsite location. Keep in mind that the island is only 2 miles by 4 miles, and during season, its much easier to park a bike than a car! (...and a little exercise is not such a bad thing)
