CHICKENS & ROOSTERS
The City of Key West protects chickens and roosters, and considers them as part of the history and charm of Key West. As a result, Key West and many of the islands throughout the Florida Keys have free-range chickens and roosters. You will definitely see and hear chickens and roosters during your stay in Key West. Some visitors to Key West love them, and some visitors hate them - personally, I enjoy them best roasted, with plantains, and black beans and rice!

The City of Key West requires that I rent the house to you for a rental term of thirty days or longer, during which time only you, your family, friends, and/or guests, have sole and exclusive use of the house.
According to my attorney and the City attorney, if I rent the house to you, and you, your guests and/or friends only occupy the house for less than the entire rental term, the house must remain empty for the rest of the rental term - and the house may not be occupied by any other persons or leased to anyone else.
I travel as often as possible, with my beautiful partner (who completes me) - we always seem to gravitate to water and good people. We enjoy historic settings, renovating old buildings, and a good bottle of wine...or two.
