I remember the south end of Key West pretty much stopping at Truman Avenue when I came to Key West 25 years ago. Oh sure there were places on Duval Street but with the exception of La Te Da and Atlantic Shores Resort (which is sadly, very sadly, gone), the south end of Old Town was dead. Not anymore. Today there are great restaurants, cheap eats and coffee houses, lots art galleries, shops, some bars, an Adult Entertainment Club (wink), an ice cream destination station, and good ole' La Te Da is still ruling the roost. South Beach has always been a place to sunbathe but now its Key West destination itself.
I mention the above because 631 United Street is positioned midway between Truman and South Beach and just a block and one-half east of Duval. Many of the reasons people choose Key West are located within a short walk. And I like to remind people that after a night on Duval Street (like last night-New Year's Eve) sometimes people find it difficult to make their way back home, especially if the trek involves winding down side streets and lanes. 631 United Street is easy to find so you and your guests should always make it back to the right house without any trouble.
Because the location is easy to find, a new owner may choose to rent the home as a monthly vacation rental. I can imagine a lot of seasoned Key West vacationers would love to stay in a place like this.
