A Key West vacation home rental is a great alternative to hotels. Not only is it cost-effective, it’s perfect for families and groups staying for more than just a few days. Our fully equipped William Skelton House come with everything you need to enjoy life “like a local” in Key West.
The William Skelton House is a large 6 bedroom, 4 bath home in Old Town. The three story Key West vacation home is one of the oldest houses on the island built in the 1830’s. The house is really unique with its exposed Dade County Pine walls, and multiple private porches. Did we mention the private pool?
The location of this house makes your Key West vacation even better. It is walking distance to everything worth seeing, including Mallory Square, the Historic Seaport, and enough bars and restaurants to keep you entertained for your entire stay.
We also host intimate wedding groups at the the William Skelton House. This Key West vacation home can sleep up to 14 people and is the perfect venue for an intimate ceremony and reception for less than 25 people.
The William Skelton House is relaxing while remaining just steps to all the action on Duval Street. We hope you have everything you need here to feel right at home.
