Casa Mariposa (or House of Butterflies), is a private, luxury estate, located within minutes of Old Town and Duval Street, as well as the beaches. Called Casa Mariposa because of the extensive butterfly garden planted around the perimeter of the property, the home is in a neighborhood of larger estate properties.
Cycle or walk anywhere. Home completely renovated 4 years ago, designed by award winning architect, with top of the line everything. Gardens, designed by a Harvard Design School graduate, have been featured on the Key West Garden Tour. Experience quintessential indoor/outdoor living, Key West style, and indulge yourself in luxury, and immerse yourself in all that America’s only Caribbean island has to offer!
The home has multiple flat screen TV’s, a complete DVD and CD collection to enjoy. My library is there for you to read, as well. Enjoy sitting by the pool, clothing optional! It’s very private! Three Master Bedroom Suites from which to choose, including one with its own private covered terrace. Terrazzo and bamboo floors throughout. You won’t be disappointed!
I am a newly single male, who is currently looking to downsize, but until I do so, I am open to sharing my home (at least through mid-May this year), and then once again, beginning in November 2011. I love traveling, and would like to perhaps visit Montreal this summer (from my other home, which is located in Indianapolis). I also would consider travel to Vancouver, BC, Canada. I’ve been to Rio de Janeiro, and wouldn’t mind returning there at some point. I play piano and have a baby grand at this home, which if you like to play, has a decent enough sound. It’s no Steinway, but it’s fine. I would love to have a piano at wherever I’m touring, but not essential.
I would also like to visit Norway again, perhaps over the summer, although the idea of exchanging homes, simultaneously wouldn’t necessarily work, since I’m not leaving my home ‘open’ for the summer. It’s not the ideal time to visit Key West anyway. Perhaps we could work something out. Any questions, don’t be afraid to ask me!

I had the honor of being a guest of Jimmy. He is a true gent who is wonderful ambassador for his home and his town, beautiful Key West. My time there was truly memorable due to his kindness, warmth, hospitality, generosity, friendship and genuine good nature. Thanks Jimmy!
