The Golden Heron was used in the Academy Award winning film, The Rose Tattoo, a Tennessee Williams production. Mr Williams also lived nearby in the neighborhood. The home is a monthly rental.

Our home has some unique qualities. PLEASE READ ALL THE BELOW BEFORE BOOKING!

It is centrally located in the "locals" area of Old Town Key West. This puts you at a 15 minute WALK to Duval street. Faustos grocery store is a block away. Everything is walking or biking distance.

The space
About 70 years ago our home was a local grocery store. We have lofty ceilings because of this and an interesting porch and awning that overhang the entire sidewalk. After being a grocery it was then a restaurant and then a large home and likely had a few other uses before we turned it into today's triplex. The Oscar winning film the "Rose Tattoo" was filmed partially here on location in the 1950s.

This history lends itself to an interesting floorpan and some unique features. PLEASE READ!

1. Every door inside the house is a glass window door (see photos). Even the bathrooms! They all have curtains but can be seen through if one was really trying.

2. There are glass "windows" that connect the upper parts of the bedrooms to each other and to the living room. They are over eight feet high but are unique!

3. The front doors are etched glass mosaic and can be seen thru if a passerby was really trying.

4. The kitchen, which used to be a bar, is quite small by modern American standards (see photos).

5. The main bathroom is outdated and in need of a remodel. It is very clean, but is on the list of near-future projects!

6. There is only one small 32" TV, a new smart one, in one of the bedrooms.

I am a middle school teacher at the Catholic school in Key West.

I enjoy travelling mixed with adventure and love how AirBNBs often immerse you into the local scene much better than hotels.
