We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. For my wife and I and our friends that traveled and stayed with us this property was perfect. Having visited Key West many times we know location is important and this house couldn't be located any better, just two blocks off Duval St. and in a quiet gated community. Shel recommended renting bicycles for out stay, our rental vehicle stayed parked the entire week, that was a great bit of advice.
The home was very well maintained and clean. The photos of the home were very accurate and that's exactly the way the home looked when we checked in. The pool area was really nice and was enjoyed everyday. We actually had our renewing of our wedding vows ceremony including eleven friends right in front of the pool and it's waterfall feature. After the ceremony we had a private chef and his assistant prepare a fantastic dinner for our group. The chef had plenty of room to work in the large kitchen area and the experience will be remembered for a long time by everyone.
Shel greeted us upon our arrival giving us the walk through and besides the bicycle rental suggestion, he pointed out several restaurants and the ones we tried were really nice. Latitudes restaurant on Sunset Key was nice and Blue Heaven was also good for brunch or dinner along with several others that we tried. We also used Danger Charters for a sunset/wine tasting cruise as well as a day trip that turned out to be one of the best we've ever experienced.
I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family, I couldn't imagine anyone not enjoying this home, it's the quintessential Key West tropical paradise home and with Shel and his advise,perfect.
Fare Thee Well
