1009 Whitehead Street Key West, FL 33040 United States

Historic Old Town Location - Private Pool - Steps from World Famous Duval Street and the Ernest Hemingway Home!

Debating between the comfort of a chic hotel and the thrill of more authentic accommodations? You will get the best of both worlds with this cozy 2 bedroom home, currently available for up to 5 guests.

Potter’s Cottage is located in the heart of Old Town – Key West’s colorful historic district. 1 block from world famous Duval Street and 1.5 blocks from the historic home of the legendary writer Ernest Hemingway. This highly desirable location is in the Gallery District of Duval Street. You'll be close enough to enjoy all of the restaurants and nightlife Duval Street has to offer, while still quiet enough for relaxation and rest.

This super cute home boasts all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel including a concierge and high speed Wi-Fi. At the same time, you can live like a local by taking advantage of the fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy the privacy our tucked-away location affords smack dab in the middle of Key West’s oldest neighborhood. The first floor French doors open to the private heated dip pool, covered lanai dining area, and ultra comfy shaded outdoor lounge area.

Potter’s Cottage (a nod to the building’s origins in 1918 as an artisan potter's shop where beautiful bowls and other pottery items were created) comes fully furnished with a King sized bed, a Queen sized bed, bed linens and towels, a modern kitchen, and 2 private bathrooms. There is also a "bonus" room with a sleeper sofa. It’s the perfect size for 2 couples or up to 5 travelers. Comparable rooms and suites downtown run upwards of $700 per night, and they don’t have half the character of this hidden gem.

When you are ready to venture out, Potter’s Cottage is conveniently located minutes form Key West’s major attractions – including sun kissed beaches, 5 star restaurants, museums, galleries, shopping, and of course the famous Duval Street nightlife. Potter’s Cottage offers limitless opportunities to explore the city by foot. You’ll find our neighbors warm and welcoming. And if you need help organizing your adventures, simply ask. Your vacation rental includes a free concierge service who knows the city like the back of his hand.

    Cathy M from Canton, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We did not get to Key West due to Hurricane Irma. We were very disappointed, but kept everyone in the Keys and the entire state of Florida in our prayers. We would love to visit, stay in Potter's Cottage, and have the opportunity to share our experience with others. Looking forward to it, and hope it will happen.

    April W from Centerville, IN recommends this vacation rental

    Potter's Cottage was wonderful! It had everything you could possibly need, even a shy iguana that would peak through the trees every now and then. The pool was a life saver on those hot and humid August days. My only caution is that the stairs to the loft bedroom are quite steep and narrow. I slept up there (the bed was great), but stayed downstairs any other time. The bonus room made a great changing area. My son and I can not wait to return next year!

    Russ S from Vancouver, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Beautiful home. This is clearly a home the owner cares about, well furnished and decorated, not just cheap furniture and a few posters. The home is beautiful, well furnished and comfortable. Historic Key West Vacation Rentals was a pleasure to deal with, responding quickly to any questions, check-in and check out was quick and helpful. House was as described and better. House can easily and comfortably sleep 6. Kitchen is a good, workable size. Downstairs bathroom shower is huge, upstairs shower is on the small side but fine. Smart TV with cable (we appreciated being able to log in to our Netflix acct when we wanted to watch a particular movie) in the living room, cable tv in each bedroom. Pool and patio are the gems. Large plunge pool, covered and uncovered patio areas with overhead fans (we're from the NW, not used to the humidity in Key West, the pool was a Godsend), very private, lots of chairs and loungers.Washer and dryer are located outside in a cabinet, very quiet. One caution, the stairs to the upstairs bedroom are steep and narrow, would not be great for the elderly or young children. House is very close (a couple of blocks) to the Hemingway House, Lighthouse, Southernmost Point, DuVal Street, great restaurants and the best conch salad on the planet (Johnson's Grocery, trust me). We could not have been happier with the house or Historic Key West Rentals. This one is a gem.

    Loved the cottage had a great experience. The only thing that would make it better would be softer bed, (very stiff,) and cooler temp in the pool. Don't know if the pool was heated or it was the sun? Oh and maybe Salt and Pepper and sugar packets.

    We (two couples) spent the Memorial Day weekend in Key West at the Potter's Cottage.
    It was everything that we wanted and more. The unit is located at a great location and, despite being on Whitehead (a busy street) there was no annoying street noise.
    The kitchen was well-equipped, the rooms comfortable and the pool was fabulous.
    I would highly recommend it!

    Judy R from Madison, MS recommends this vacation rental

    We recently stayed at Potter's Cottage on our first ever trip to Key West. It was the perfect place for us! The property is perfectly located for people who want to be walking distance to all the major attractions but want a little space from all the noise of upper Duval. The Cottage is charming. It is beautifully decorated with all the amenities you need. The pool and patio are a perfect place to relax at the end of a busy day sightseeing. My only qualification would be for people with limited mobility or who have trouble climbing stairs. The master bedroom is wonderful but the stairs are quite steep so if that would be an issue it might not be the best place to stay. Otherwise it was perfect. Danny was our concierge and helpfully gave us several suggestions of places to eat and they were all fabulous.

    Fantastic cottage. Just far enough off Duval, but close enough by bike. Perfect property for our family. Master suite is ideal. Our 2 daughters had their space as well. Updated appliances, cutlery, TVs, patio furniture, towels, bathrooms... hesitant to share such a glowing review as we want to come back.

    Wonderful cottage with delightful fenced in deck/pool/lanai area. Loved the front porch for coffee in morning and people watching at night. Perfect distance from Duval and other amenities. Comfy cottage and nicely decorated. If you have bad knees, plan on staying in the ground level bedroom. Stairs to upstairs are a bit steep but fine if you're in shape.

    Bruce S from Dunn, NC recommends this vacation rental

    This was our 2nd stay at Potter's in 3 months. This is a wonderful cottage, with all the amenities you would ever need. The house is ideal for 2 couples with one bedroom downstairs and one upstairs providing some additional privacy. There is a wonderful deck and covered area around the pool (we spent more time here then in the house!). The management company provided us with 2 nice lounge chairs for the pool, as the other seats are chairs and not designed for sunbathing. The house is in an ideal location just a block off Duval St and a block from Hemingway's home and the lighthouse. You are very centrally located here making it a easy walk to anywhere in old town. We will be back to Potter's cottage again!

    Very cute and very well laid out cottage.

    The location is perfect, but not too close to the tourist areas to be loud.

    The plunge pool is a good size, and I recommend the option of having it heated in the winter.

    Perfect for two couples and even a fifth person, with the little side room.

      Hi Paul! Thanks so much for taking the time to post your review from your recent stay at Potter's Cottage. It sounds like you truly enjoyed your time spent during your Key West vacation. Please give us a call the next time you come to visit, we are happy to have you back!

    Kay S from Nashport, OH recommends this vacation rental

    Our rental experience was acceptable even with a couple of issues. We would recommend this agency. We will consider using them when we vacation in Key West again (like next year). We especially were thankful for the cleanliness of the house. We enjoyed the decor and furniture inside and outside. It was very cool and tropical! Having upper end quality bed collections, towels, etc. is ideal for us. The location was quiet. We enjoy walking so the distance to Sloppy Joes, etc. did not bother us. Sure wish the pool was bigger. Then Potter's Cottage would be perfect. The managers were great, friendly and had attention to details. Yea!

    • Manager Responded on 9/1/2016

      Hi Kay! We're glad to hear that the the home was clean and you enjoyed the decor. Thanks for recommending us as a vacation rental agency. You can give us a call anytime and we'd be more than happy to accommodate you on your next trip to Key West.

    a guest from Palmyra, PA recommends this vacation rental

    Our family of five recently rented the Potter's Cottage for a week in July. We knew that it was on the smaller side, but there was actually plenty of room for all of us. We loved the location, which was an easy walking distance to restaurants, etc. on Duval, as well as several beaches that we enjoyed. The pool was a great addition due to the very warm weather. It was great to have Phil to make suggestions and assist with our reservations for dinner, etc.. He is a great asset to HKWVR. On our next visit to Key West, we would definitely rent this cottage again.

    • Manager Responded on 7/22/2016

      Hi Roni! I'm so happy you and your family enjoyed Potter's Cottage for a week in July. Having a pool in Key West really makes a difference! I agree about your statement regarding Phil, he is an amazing person and a big part of HKWVR's success. Please come back to Key West soon, we miss you already!

    We thought the property was lovely and we loved the location. On several occasions the neighbors behind caused quite a disturbance. The guest bedroom mattress is hard as a rock which not quite so comfortable. Would like a TV or at least some type of speaker to be able to enjoy music on the deck around the pool. Loved the front porch and enjoyed people watching. Would definitely stay there again!
