Literally “tucked away” between the Main House and Caribbean Cottage, the Tuckaway Cottage exudes the ambience of a luxurious cocoon. Along with our other Garden Cottage Suites, the Pineapple Hideaway and Gecko’s Garden, this suite holds strong appeal for guests who value space and privacy.
Distinctive island elegance — refreshingly contradictory in its simultaneous simplicity and sophistication — promises an authentic Key West lifestyle experience.
Cool stone tile floors and a ceiling of bamboo reeds provide the palette. An impressive king-size sleigh bed, exotic Indonesian furnishings, and unique accessories create an intriguing ambience. French doors open onto a private, reed-screened porch with a whirlpool for two, inviting romantic moments and setting the stage for a memorable honeymoon, anniversary, or “just because” celebration.
Your introduction to the Gecko’s Garden, our most luxurious Garden Cottage King Suite, is filled with excited anticipation. You’ve seen the pictures and imagined yourself there as you’ve planned your escape. Leaving the bustle of Duval Street behind the heavy front doors of Tropical Inn, you traverse the length of the hushed Main House corridor, emerging onto the back porch. Greeted by riotous greenery and a sparkling waterfall pool, you feel transported.
Winding your way along the garden path, you glimpse a cottage the color of orange sherbet, and sense that you are approaching a very special place. Stepping through the French doors validates the feeling. Your eye is drawn to the reed ceiling, vaulting to frame the treetop view above a sumptuous, king-size Empress Bamboo canopy bed, adorned with impossibly soft linens. You know you’ve made the right choice.
A second set of French doors opens to the secret garden of your oh-so-private hideaway. Lazy sunlit days and moonlit moments of blissful seclusion await, immersed in your heated and spa-jetted plunge pool under tropical skies.
Luxuriously indulgent intimacy. Unparalleled ambience. The Gecko’s Garden. How romantic can it get?
Set on a quiet, residential lane outside the garden gates, Tropical Inn’s Pineapple Hideaway feels like a secluded island oasis. This Garden Cottage Queen Suite is a classic Florida accommodation equipped with every convenience — including a kitchenette with wet bar and full size fridge (no range, but a microwave oven) — allowing for an absolute disconnect from the real world in carefree, barefoot comfort. The Tropical Inn’s waterfall pool is just steps away through the garden gate.
Your inviting “outdoor living room” is a private, fenced patio garden featuring a covered porch that steps down to a patio with a tree-sheltered hydro-massage spa. At the day’s end, an exotic, woven palm leaf bed dressed in sumptuous linens will transport you to tropical dreams beneath a soaring ceiling of bamboo reeds.
