Just what we were looking for !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 nights. Marianne was easy to communicate with prior to our arrival. In addition, she provided a cell phone contact in case there were any issues. We arrived at 4PM and the house had not yet been cleaned from the previous guests. I contacted Marianne and she had the staff there quickly. The previous guests left the place in great shape so clean-up was fast and staff were apologetic and extremely pleasant. We brought our boat and it was great to have the boat right outside, easy to get out on the water and easy to clean up after a day on the water. The freezer makes great ice and kept everything very cold. The house is done next store and it does not block the view of the sunrise any more that the tree on the other side of the canal. The table downstairs was a great place to have a cup of tea and watch the sun rise and enjoy the breeze. The bed was very comfortable, there were extra linens, AC worked really well, kitchen was extremely well stocked with a variety of pots, pans, plates, silverware, everything you could possibly need, washer/dryer was clean and worked well, outside hose was excellent for washing things off, truck fit nicely under the house for shade, the wi-fi worked. The pictures are accurate. Yes, it was not a 5 star hotel but it was real Keys living, quiet, peaceful and very reasonably priced. I have nothing negative to say. We are planning on returning to the Pisces House again.

Had a very pleasant stay.

  • 4 of 5

I must agree with Sue C. Reviews should be honest, starting with hers. The construction is finished and the view is just fine. The house is clean, comfortable, quiet and very private. Just the way we like it. The kitchen is one of the best equipped of all the vacation rentals we have been in, and the cabinets closed for us. Sure the linoleum is aging and there's rust (not mold) in places in the bathroom and the stairs have the paint peeling. That's what salt air does to things. As for Marianne, there was an issue when we checked in and once made aware of it she took care of it in record time, suggesting we drop by The Wharf for a drink in the meantime. What a great suggestion that was! If you want a 5 star property, pay $500 a night at the Marriott in Key West. If you want a very nice private place close to all the lower keys have to offer, you'll be very happy here.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying at Pisces House and were very pleased. The location was ideal; close to Key West and state parks but very quiet which is exactly what we were looking for. The cottage is clean and comfortable. We hope to return next year!

Nice but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

we spent two weeks at the cottage and it has many positives. The bed is great, furniture is lovely. Having the great washer and dryer downstairs was great after beach trips. The location in the keys is easy access to key west and Baha'i Honda S.P. The exterior needs work and the kitchen, bathroom and flooring need attention. Could easily be five star with some improvements.

Not what I expected based on previous reviews

  • 2 of 5

I've had pretty good luck with renting on vrbo but this was the worst. First I guess I should state the pros - good bed, good laundry room, lots of nice windows. Cons - kitchen cabinets wouldn't close and in need of replacement sooner rather than later. The linoleum floors are worn out and full of holes everywhere. The worst is the bathroom - moldy bathtub and a toilet that is surrounded by moldy linoleum floor. There must be or have been a leak there at some point. The outdide stairs and landing are in need of replacement - wood is rotting and feels soft when walking up/down. I took some pics but can't seem to post them. This place seems to be a work in progress? But bath and kitchen are grim. Oh and there is a constructiin site next door snd once that is finished, the view here will be gone. I didn't expect the taj mahal but all the mold really grossed me out. I feel that travellers reviews should be honest and am disillusioned at what i've read here. I can't in good conscience, recommend this place at this point to anyone. ��

Owner's Response: I would like to say that I am extremely disappointed with this review. I take pride in providing a clean and comfortable environment for my guest as you can see from previous reviews. Unfortunately, none of this was brought to my attention even though I was in contact with this guest multiple times. There is a project going on next door but this cottage is 5 feet from the water so most of the view will remain. I always appreciate the feedback from my guests and try my very best to create a lovely environment for their stay. Thank You, Marianne

Just What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

From the responsiveness/helpfulness of Marianne to the actual stay/accommodations, our experience with this property was terrific. The Pisces House was perfect for sleeping (yay for privacy), plenty of options for eating (inside or out), the Wi-Fi actually worked (how often has that been a disappointment in your travels?), and even her movie library was solid! Various nearby things to do, and even Key West is a short hop away. Thanks, Marianne... we sure hope to return!
