28 Day Minimum rental: Two charming Conch houses are joined together at Eliza’s Jewel, an elegant three-bedroom home in Old Town Key West. Located in a quaint neighborhood just steps from the restaurants, shops and art galleries of White Street, Eliza’s Jewel combines beautifully preserved historical architecture with updated modern amenities.
Enter the home through the newly constructed dining area that seamlessly blends the two homes together. Wood floors and a cathedral ceiling with a striking chandelier make this space a sophisticated yet casual place to gather for a meal, with seating for up to 10 at the table. Glass doors to the outside give you unrestricted access to the large, sunny deck and turquoise- tiled pool. A charmingly chic powder room features a claw foot tub and a crystal chandelier; a full sized washer and dryer are conveniently tucked in to a nearby closet.
Down a short hallway are two cozy bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. In the twin bedroom, a door to the outside leads to what used to be the original front porch of the first home. The Jack-and-Jill bathroom that these bedrooms share includes a glass-enclosed shower and antique vanity with traditional fixtures. Built-in drawers and shelving provide plenty of convenient storage space.
The comfortable, updated kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a gourmet gas range, a wine chiller and a marble-topped island that is perfect for a laid-back breakfast or impromptu cocktail hour. The large living area is the ideal space for socializing, with two crisp white sofas, exposed wood walls, cobalt blue accent pieces and a flat panel television. Throw the doors open wide to the pool deck and let the island breeze in!
Just off the living area and down a small hallway is the master bedroom, featuring a soaring vaulted ceiling and king size bed. A door to the outside leads to the original front porch from the second home, now a great spot to unwind. The private, en suite bath has a huge, spa-like, walk-in shower and double sinks set into an antique vanity.
Eliza’s Jewel is the ultimate place to experience both the appeal of unique Key West architecture and the ease of modern island living.
