"Darling of Duval" and Last Key Realty's Five-Star In-Home Guest Services are the perfect combination to create the five star hospitality typically associated with luxury hotels - all in the Old Town location of your dreams.
The drop pin on the map says it all: this estate is right in the thick of the best restaurants, nightlife, shopping, and sightseeing of Key West. This gated estate opens up onto one of the legendary corners of the island but is built back far enough from the street to minimize noise from businesses or passersby. From your balcony you might never know you are just a stone's throw from the best bars and restaurants of Duval Street. You'll also be within half a mile of Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, home to Key West's remarkable state park beach and the family friendly waterfront park. You'll be able to reach all of your favorite spots on foot, but this home does include off street parking for one vehicle or electric car/golf cart as well as space for mopeds or bicycles. When aiming for the true "Old Town Key West" location, it simply doesn't get any better than this.
This unique guest cottage consists of two studio-style suites, one on each floor. Each floor features beautiful sliding glass doors that create an open-air feeling on breezy days. The two floors are connected by an external staircase.
>> First Floor Suite: King bed, large walk in shower, en-suite bathroom, kitchenette (blender, coffee maker, hot plate, microwave) sitting area, SMART TV, washer & dryer.

This unit is incredibly picturesque, in the perfect location, with amazing management. Samantha was easy to communicate with and was more than accommodating. I will definitely be booking in the future! Thank you for having us, it was the best mini season yet!

Thank you for the great stay!
If you’re looking for a great couples trip location in the keys this is your destination. You’re 70’ from Duval in the heart of Key West. The beds are the most comfortable beds ever that I’ve slept in besides my own.

An oasis just off Duval!
This is a very comfortable and extremely beautiful property. I give it an enthusiastic five stars!

This is an amazing place in a perfect location
Everything you want or need is within walking distance...we would definitely stay here again if we are back in Key West!- Molly G , Posted: 05/08/2019
The nicest place I've ever stayed in. By FAR
This place is so incredibly special. It is really hard to describe the sense of peace and beauty you get just entering the lovely grounds, passing the historic main house and go to your two story guest house at the back of the property. It has two HUGE suites that are both so nice you will want to stay forever. We met our friends from Tennessee here. It is really difficult to find a place in Key West with two king beds and two full bathrooms. This place was on the more expensive side but so extremely worth it. Even my 'frugal' husband liked it so much he never asked the price. The rooms are each gorgeous with beautiful bathrooms and great little kitchenettes. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. The AC works really well. Best of all, LARGE icemakers in the mini-fridge!!! Lovely balcony off the upper room, beautiful patio on the lower level. So quiet and relaxing yet half a block off Duval and where the action is. We walked everywhere and never moved the car during our stay. You have lost your mind if you don't stay here. I want to go back already. Our gracious host came over and introduced himself and seemed truly happy to have us there. Thank you for such an incredible experience!!!- Anonymous U , Posted: 05/04/2019
Can't beat this location, right off Duval St
Incredible house in the middle of the action. Only wish we could have used the pool, but had a great time using the hit tub and grilling our fresh catches from the ocean. Would definitely recommend!- Wenhao L , Posted: 05/03/2019
Accommodations were spacious, clean and decorated to perfection. All interactions with our host and staff were delightful! Location supreme... centrally located yet very quiet and private. We would definitely stay here again!- Anna B , Posted: 04/19/2019
Location is perfect and the house is amazing
We stayed at the Darling of Duval the week of March 18th and it was phenomenal. Plenty of room and has such a Key West laid back vibe to it. Samantha of Last Key Realty was top notch. She was such a pleasure to deal with and made everything so easy from checking in, storing our luggage until check-in and recommendations on things to do. Will book Darling of Duval for our next trip!!- Troy C , Posted: 04/02/2019
BEAUTIFUL!!!!....perfect location! Great for 2 couples. We had everything we needed, including the security of being on a gated property. Beds were extremely comfortable, very clean and inviting. When we checked in, we met Samantha, who was FANTASTIC to work with. Only thing I wish we had, were a few more days! Definitely going back!- Charlene C , Posted: 03/19/2019
My Wife, another couple, and I spent 5 days at this fantastic property. It was perfect in every way. Beautiful building throughout, and beautiful property. It was amazing how close we were to Duval Street, but could not hear anything while sitting on the outside patio. I would highly recommend this property.- Dalton C from Parkton, Maryland , Posted: 03/11/2019
This property has a great location!
Was very clean and well maintained. We will stay here again in the future.- Randy P , Posted: 02/22/2019
Everything about this little gem is outstanding. The location couldn't get much better, just steps away from all the action, yet the accommodations offer a peaceful and quiet oasis away from the Duval Crawl. The rooms are luxurious and well decorated. The bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The walk-in shower is amazing and the water pressure is great. I loved having two suites in one building. It offers the perfect amount of separation when traveling with another couple. Shannon, the rental coordinator, is warm and inviting. Communicating with her is like chatting with an old friend. The property owner lives in the main house. He was friendly and quick to offer some great bar, restaurant and music suggestions. I can't say enough great things about our stay. It by far exceeded our expectations and as frequent airbnbers, we consider this stay one of the very best.- Marianne B , Posted: 01/31/2019
Wonderful accommodation in quiet setting
My wife, 2 college age sons, and I stayed for 3 nights. The rooms are as pictured, very comfortable, clean, and private. The interior was tastefully done. The location is surprisingly very quiet, it is set back off the street and we never heard noise from Duvall. The location can't be beat for access to Old Town as it is in the midst of everything. We walked everywhere and rode bikes to places outside of walking distance-which was not often. The concierge service was excellent. I would highly recommend this location for 2 couples or a group of 4.- Samuel J , Posted: 01/17/2019
We stayed at the Darling of Duval at Xmas 2018. I can't imagine a more lovely, convenient and sumptuous place. It was better than any luxury resort, in terms of amenities, aesthetics, hospitality and location. The guesthouse sits in the rear of a beautifully landscaped tropical garden. Each room had a generous king-sized bed, and choice of ventilation (open sliding doors for cross-breezes plus ceiling fan plus Mitsubishi A/C units. Parking on premises behind a wrought iron gate. Half a block from the heart of Duval, yet you feel like you are in a hidden oasis. The main house is a grand plantation colonial style home, and you feel like an honored guest.- Jill T , Posted: 12/31/2018
