THE EXPERIENCE... "Great house, exactly as advertised. Our family of 4 had a great stay at the Octopus's Garden! The house is exactly as advertised -- really clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The service from Steve at Last Key Realty was the best we've ever had from an owner or rental agency; we can't say enough about how helpful and responsive he is. Our family would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Key West." -Tom C. 03/18 THE HOME... "Octopus's Garden" has been whimsically decorated with furnishings that reflect the laid-back, quirky island life style of Key West. Located in the gated community of Coral Hammock, you will be just down the street from the famous Hogfish Bar & Grill, Roostica Pizzeria, Hurricane Hole Marina & Restaurant and Chico's Cantina. The Key West Golf Club is just across the street while Lazy Dog Island Sports is just up the road for paddle boarding and kayaking trips. You will be just a short bike or Uber ride from Old Town Key West whenever you choose to take in the downtown area. THE COMMUNITY & GROUNDS... This large, freestanding home has two off street parking spaces directly in front, with a grassy lawn that surrounds the house front and back. The front porch offers a shaded area to sit and relax. The back porch is perfect for a BBQ and the big fenced-in back yard is great for the kids. As Ringo's song says: "oh what joy for every girl and boy, knowing they're happy and they're safe," this home truly offers the security of a gated community with amenities for the entire family. An enormous communal swimming pool surrounded by plenty of chaise lounges is through a gate directly across from your front door. Access to the clubhouse includes a shaded patio area overlooking the pool, as well as an indoor gathering area and a private fitness center with cardio equipment and free weights. THE LIVING AREA & KITCHEN... As you enter "Octopus's Garden" through the front door to the living area, the bright colors of this tropical home immediately greet you with an island welcome.
