If you’ve looked into real estate in Key West, chances are you’ve heard of 1800 Atlantic. This large condo complex is named after its address on Atlantic Blvd., located right on the beach. Units have some of the best true “ocean views” in all of Key West, as well as an amazing private beach (right next to Smathers Beach), Jacuzzi, two saunas, three tennis courts, shared lending library, recreation room and a heated Olympic-size pool. Yes, I said Olympic-size pool. In Key West! The location allows easy access to Key West activities but with all the amenities, who needs to leave! (Kidding.)

Only one unit has a pool/courtyard view (C230). Two of the others have street views (C227 and C131) and one has a view of the nature preserve (A208). Courtyard view means you’re looking at the pool and the ocean from your spacious 34’ balcony, not the cars going by on Bertha Street. Point: C230
Three of the units are listed at 1,375 square feet and one is listed at 1,311 (C227). All four units have 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. All the units at 1800 Atlantic have similar layout and size, so this isn’t really a factor in comparison. All four units have large balconies. Point: tie
The units are priced at $435K, $469K, $525K and $595K. That puts the price/sq. ft. ranging from $331.81 to $438.47. Arguably a decent value for any home in Key West today. Point: C227
Only one of the units has been remodeled, and that is the most expensive of the four (C131). The other three units feature original kitchens, but décor and upgrades vary from unit to unit. All of them appear to be “turn key” and in good condition. Point: C131

None of these four units have transient rental licenses allowing nightly or weekly rentals, but a non-transient rental license (30 days or more) can be purchased from the City of Key West for $19.95/year. Point: tie
