Traditional, Yet Luxurious, Accommodations in Key West
Shotgun houses, simple wooden homes having a hallway running straight from front door to back, providing access to rooms one behind the other, are ubiquitous in Key West. Many were homes to workers in the Island City’s early days, when the cigar industry was its major economic base; hence, the term, “cigar-maker’s cottage.”
The Pineapple Lane Cottage is one of those, exhibiting two sawtooth additions to the original structure, expanding the interior space over the years. This historic bungalow, reconfigured and completely renovated as luxurious additions to the Tropical Inn in 2006, houses two of our most secluded and romantic Garden Cottage Suites, The Gecko’s Garden (king) and Pineapple Hideaway (queen). Each has a very private patio garden with its own spa and designated parking adjacent the cottage, making these luxury accommodations the perfect alternative to vacation rentals in Key West.
Chic tropical furnishings, chosen with sensitivity and attention to detail, enhanced by soft, intimate lighting, meet sleek modern bathrooms in airy, graceful quarters. Vaulted bamboo ceilings and cool stone tile floors create airy sanctuaries where overhead fans stir balmy breezes to create an ambience of languidly indulgent sensuality.
