Description

These twin homes have the charming original style of the Key West "shot gun" cottages and have been restored with a beautiful natural cypress exterior. Each cottage opens to it's own semi-private deck and lounge area with access to a large free-form pool with waterfall. 

Inside, the comfortable living room has a spiral staircase to the loft second bedroom with a unique glass railing. Large windows in the kitchen fold away to allow serving directly to the pool deck and capture the warm, tropical Key West breezes. If cooking isn't your thing, hop on over to the Banana Cafe Restaurant or the Coffee and Tea House- just right next door! 

These twin cottages allow for great flexibility in your vacation planning. Rent the whole property as a four bedroom/two bath compound for your large group, or each cottage may be rented separately as two bedroom /one bath for smaller parties.

We came to Key West for some RR. We had some playing golf and others scuba diving and some just lazed by the pool. Was a great place. Clean, nice decor and the pool was so nice to have. Some things need attention. The deck is in disrepair and not safe without sandals due to nail heads protruding. The lower bed is not comfortable and noisy with any turn. The location was great. The quiet end of Duval and right next to a wonderful little French breakfast restaurant with amazing pastry and coffee and food. We had a great time and would recommend this property. I hope that the owners make an improvement in the deck.

Two adults and two teens fit perfectly in this cottage. The location was great, pool was perfect and the quaintness of the cottage was relaxing. Don’t bother with a car, parking all over is rough. We rented bikes to get around Key West and called an Uber as need to travel further from town.

Fantastic Experience! Private Paradise just steps from Duval!

Everything was seamless, Rent Key West did a great job explaining everything to us and their offices were only 2-3 blocks away from our place. There was a gentleman at the location fixing the towel rack which surprised us at first, but he was nice and was gone within the first 10 minutes of our arrival. Overall great experience, we really loved the pool area!

We rented Pete's cottage 505 for 4 nights. We were very pleased with the rental amenities, location and interaction with KW Rentals. The property was not "oversold" regarding the quality of the property, one note I would suggest they edit on the website is in regard to having a washer/dryer in the cottage. It was not listed as having so we expected to have to go to a laundromat but upon arriving discovered that they were included with the rental.

Visited in late September which can still be quite hot. The cottage is a block off of Duval Street, so good access to all the activities there. However, also a challenge for parking should you be bringing a car.

The cottage is a bit antiquated. Cabinets in kitchen coming to pieces. Old tube tv. Not much in terms of decoration. A bit dark.
Nonetheless, it was clean and comfortable.

Best feature was the pool in back garden. If you are coming in the summer, its a welcome amenity to spend hot afternoons around pool. We would explore by early morning and evening, and hit pool in heat of the day.

If you're looking for a beach, note that the little beach down the street (Southernmost Beach) is not a great asset. Closest real beach is still Zach Taylor. But still lots of great restaurants nearby.

The location of the property and the pool are great. The interior needs upgrading to justify the cost. The kitchen and bathroom are tired. Even simple things like a noisy bed and a stained area rug are unacceptable for the amount of the rental. Also, the unit is very dark and cave like - not something you'd expect in Key West.

This is my second time vacationing in Key West. The first one was in a nice hotel, but after staying in Pete's Cottage this time, I don't think I would want to stay anywhere else. It's right off Duval St, but on the quiet end. And close to all the really good stuff. The cottage was cozy and had everything we needed. I wasn't sure about staying up in the loft, but it ended up being fun. Kind of like being in a tree house. It was so cozy. with the loft located on the other side of the house from the other bedroom and kitchen, it was actually pretty quiet even though it was open. The pool was gorgeous, and since it was heated and we were there in January, that was a really great feature. Not much parking on the street, but we always managed to find a close parking spot. Can't hardly wait to go back!

I have been renting this property every summer for the past 6 years. It is Ideally located for the restaurants at the lower end of Duval Street (the quieter end) and has a great pool (shred with next door) for cooling down in the heat.

The Property is always clean and tidy on arrival, and the rental company are a dream to work with.

Nothing could have been beeter including getting great neighbors..
I would definitely look into a sleeper sofa for the front room and seeing about somehow reinforcing those metal steps for less jingling sound they are really loud!
Also, control of the fountain would be great, since we got along with the neighbors and I guess we were all older, it was too loud too talk so we asked to have it turned off eventually!
They did an incredible job with the place and would like to inquire about future dates and next new year when possible!
Thank you,

On the opposite end of the Party on Duval Street, this little cottage is perfectly hidden. The pool and features of the West cottage will enhance your stay and make you feel like a local. The master bed should be replaced as it is so severly sagging, we had a hard time sleeping. It would also be nice if synthetic pillows were available. We were also a bit disappointed that no dishwasher detergent. laundry soap or sponges were stocked and the two small rolls of toilet paper were hardly enough to get a family of four through two days. Overall, I would rent the west cottage again when returning to Key West.

My husband and I were to fly from Charlotte to Key West on Feb 11. Our flight was cancelled due to weather and no other flight was available into Key West. A massive tornado had devastated our hometown on the 10th. So we knew what kind of storm this was and we glad the airline was on top of it. We decided it was a sign that our flight had cancelled. Paul Hayes of RKW would not even think about refunding any of the 1700.00 we paid him for the cottage. In fact he was very rude about the entire request.He only said (over and over)"well you should have gotten the insurance". Make sure YOU GET THE INSURANCE !!! Why they don't just call it a non-refundable deposit I don't know. Many people deny insurance purchase because there are so many "loop holes" with so called insurance. Just add a deposit totaling the insurance amount and tell your guest it will not be refunded if they cancel on you. I will NEVER use this company or even go to Key West because it he (Paul Hayes) is any indication of the manner in which other business owners handle guest there, then I don't want any part of the place. Remember. . THE AIRLINES CANCELLED OUR FLIGHT, WE COULDN'T GET TO KEY WEST AT ALL. We got hosed on this deal. Note: i had to put in ratings or the site would not let me send this review

This was the 3rd time I have rented Pete's Cottages from Rent Key West Vacations. Each time has been a painless and professional experience.
The Cottages are ideally placed at the quieter end of Duval Street, not far from the Southernmost Point, and the beech.

I have written a more expanded review on flipkey from previous visits.

I will be renting this property again, for next years visit.

This was my third visit to the island and my third time staying in a Rent Key West property on Louisa - my favorite rental thus far! Great location & the surrounding area isn't as crowded as the other end of Duvall. Pool was fantastic and the updates to the home were well done. My only concern was the spiral staircase up to the loft - it is SUPER narrow and treacherous to navigate while sober, much less after a few cocktails. Couldn't safely get a suitcase up so all luggage stayed in the living room - worked out fine though since we were rarely sitting in front of the TV during the week. :)

the beds are the biggest problem with this property, The bed in the bedroom downstairs seemed broken. The box spring seemed cracked and gave us horrible sleep. I also mentioned to the office that they need to tell their guest to bring extra comforters because do not supply enough. Me and my wife fought for covers all night. We fought for a thin sheet and this thin littler cover that I guess was considered the comforter. The rest of the property was ok, the office only gave us one key for two couples but on the last day gave us another set but we didn't even bother picking up. Parking was horrible too. A truck took the parking spot in front of the place all weekend long. We were constantly nervous about getting towed away. I would much rather get another vacation rental other than this place.
Manager response on 2013-11-08 - Response from Rent Key West Vacations, Inc
Once our maintenance staff was alerted to the broken bed issue, we fixed it immediatly. There are multiple sets of keys available for all units, so even though guests may receive one set during a late night check-in, there would have been more keys made available the next morning. All of our units are fully equipped with linens; if the linens seem inadequate for your stay please contact us immmediatly and we will provide more. Parking is, unfortunatley, a constant issue in our tiny downtown area. Also, during this particular stay there was construction taking place at one of the homes close by, lending even more challenge to the parking issue. When staying in downtown Key West, consider renting scooters or bicycles. A full size car is often not needed in the downtown area.

Pete's Cottage was wonderful. The location between to cafe was needless to say perfect. Being 20 feet from Duval Street allowed for my family (wife and two daughters 2 yr old and 7 yr old) the opportunity to walk as far down as possible. We were able to rent bicycles and see everything we wanted. The pool was amazing addition to the trip that set it apart from all others.

I would reccomend this location to anyone.

Overall we were extremely happy with this rental . Location was great, close enough to everything to walk but far enough off from the noise of the night scene. The only negative was the debris from the trees in the pool,

Cottage is in a great location, close to Duval but far enough from the crowd so you get some peace. Despite being close to a coffee shop and restaurant, noise was not bad during the day or at night. Cottage was perfect for 2 people, but I think it would be crowded for 4 and the spiral staircase to the second bedroom would challenge many people. Overall the cottage was in good shape for a rental. The mattress in the ground floor bedroom is due for replacement, however.
The pool was great and we spent a lot of time out there enjoying the water and the breeze.
We've stayed in several vacation rentals in KW and I think was very comparable to more expensive properties
