Living up to its name of a green house, this newly renovated Airbnb home in Caroline Street boasts of lush viridian shrubbery all around you, all while leaving your own privacy to you and a group of four. Step into your new home furnished with the colours of a woodland forest. With hues of bamboo green lining the walls of oaken shelves, you can fall asleep to the silhouette of the dense canopy right here in the comforts of your new home. Have you always wanted to sleep in late and enjoy a breakfast in bed? Live out that dream with the cushy sofa-bed that extends to a queen-sized sleeper! Cook up a fragrant plate of scrambled eggs, topped off with a serving of honey-drizzled sausages and switch on your favourite Netflix show for a perfect Sunday afternoon. Adorned with wall art of varying styles, take a short tour around the house and see how many pieces of art you can spot! Ranging from carved woodworks of renaissance figures to still photography of the ever-changing ocean view, you can admire the many masterpieces lying around the house. Head over to your bedroom infused with a touch of the ocean waves. The quaint pastel blue walls are reminiscent of sea views that are unique to Key West, and the solitary pieces of coloured bamboo pieces resemble the seaweeds that tickle your feet when you dive into the crystal-clear waters. Rest up on the spacious double bed after a sweltering day of suntanning. If you find yourself unable to sleep, head out to the lanai beside your bed for a whiff of the salt-tinged air to relax.

Set sail for the high seas in this private yacht owned by the friendly host, Danny.
