George Edson purchased this house in 2008
We had vacationed in Key West several times and decided to purchase a home here in 2008. We looked at 20 houses but couldn't get this one out of our minds. The open access to the backyard and pool just made this home special. We spend January through March here each year,
Privacy of a single home, open walls to private pool, 4 passenger electric car and a number of bicycles. This is truly a best buy in rentals. Value, value, value!
We stayed for the month of December 2015. The house was very nice and was just as listed. I believe that it was more than we expected. All amenities were available. It was very peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street. However when we wanted to go to Duval Street we hopped in the e-car and drove there. We had a minor problem with the pool heater and the e-car but Jill and George took care of these minor problems as soon as possible. Overall we enjoyed our stay and I am hoping that we can book it again. Thanks Jill and George you run a "tight ship".
After driving 1200 miles to get to our little slice of paradise, we were not disappointed. It was just what the doctor ordered ... sitting by the pool that evening with a drink and just listening to the sounds made that long drive a faint memory. The house was everything we expected and then some. Abigail (owners daughter) was very helpful and extremely pleasant. We have already made our reservations for next year.
Reluctant Reviewer.....a strange title for a five star rating. But I must admit some reluctance to letting you know about this place. I would prefer to keep it my secret spot, but that just wouldn't be right. While endlessly searching for a place to take a family vacation, I came across this listing. It seemed to have everything we wanted, and at a very fair price. I began a dialogue with George and Jill, and very quickly felt as though they were friends. We booked the month of June, and off to KW we went. I won't bore you with praises of how great the house is, or how we left our vehicle sitting at the curb the entire time because the electric vehicle is simply the trick. Suffice it to say that everything you see in the pics, and read in other reviews about the house, is even better when you arrive. As wonderful as George and Jill were, and even though the property exceeded expectation, the best thing is an old real estate adage....Location, Location, Location! Situated on a corner lot in a quiet residential neighborhood of KW natives, it offers the ideal setting to truly experience KW. Take the first week and do all the tourist things that everybody will ask you about on your return....Mallory Square, Duval Street, see the polydactyl cats at the Hemmingway house, catch the ferry out to the Dry Tortugas. It is really all worth seeing. After you get these things done, slow down.....you have a month....and pay attention to the local KW lifestyle, talk to your neighbors, once you get to know them a bit, they will share their favorite local spots to eat, best places to shop without crowds, etc. Keith, the pool guy and Manny the yard guy come once a week, and once they know you're not one of those tourists that act like a horses hind end, they will share some great local info, especially really, really good places to eat. If you find they don't want to share, well, you now know why. While I could list these places, I wouldn't want to deprive you of getting to know the locals, for this is where you truly begin to experience KW. A most unique microcosm of societal compatibility, if you leave KW without the feeling that we are One Human Family, then you have failed to slow down enough, and have wasted the best part of the KW experience. If you are looking for a place to spend a month in paradise, this is it. I would rather you pass it on by, so it is available the next time I head South, but you really need to book this one now!!
We are definitely having the time of our life! I can honestly say this, so far, has been the best stay we have had in Key West in our 12 years coming! Definitely feels like our home away from home (yet better). Don't be surprised to hear from us again, this time next year, as well. We have enjoyed the use of the electric car & have enjoyed many rides around the island. We absolutely love the house! It's beautifully updated...have not had any problems /issues, like we've had in years before. We love sitting around just enjoying the view out thru to and in the backyard; especially enjoying the pool...such a tropical oasis. We have already visited "the usual" Sunset Celebration (many times), shopping down Duval, & our kids (the older ones) have even be able to go scuba diving for the 1st time & my little one snorkeling for the 1st time! I'm so glad we still have 2 more weeks to enjoy here & can't wait to celebrate mine and my husbands 5th year anniversary together here in paradise. Thanx for checking in & we will be sure to keep in touch! Thanx for helping us be able to make these new memories apart of our annual tradition!
We have made many visits to the Florida Keys and would definitely rate this home as one of our favorites. The owners, George and Jill, were very professional in their communication and were very responsive to our needs.
The house and property were very clean and well equipped for all your "Keys" vacation needs. We enjoyed the electric car, bicycles, pool, barbeque grill and the overall open layout of the house.
The privacy fence and lush landscaping around the pool area truly create an oasis. Yet, within a short bike ride you can be viewing the Atlantic Ocean or heading up the Keys on the bike path.
We highly recommend this property for your first or next visit to Key West.
Loved this sweet little house. Owners couldn't be nicer and their daughter too. The electric car made this house so easy - groceries, morning coffee for sunrise, evenings in old town. Loved the bikes too. Rode them to old town almost every day. Super fun and good exercise too. Check out what it costs to rent an electric car and be sure to deduct that from the overall cost to realize what a good deal this house is for an extended visit.
4 passenger GEM electric car included, several good bicycles, 2 living room walls fully open to outside pool area, 2 bedrooms open onto pool area
