About George Edson

George and Jill live in rural NH and are both retired. George from retail food sales and real estate and Jill from public education administration. They have three grown daughters and five grandchildren.

George Edson purchased this house in 2008

Why George Edson chose Key West

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,

What makes this house unique

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!

Reluctant Reviewer

  • 5 of 5
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!!

A Home a Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
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!

Key West New Town Oasis

  • 5 of 5
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.

Great Bargain

  • 5 of 5
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.

Outstanding stay!

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful vacation home! The house is well stocked, and very clean and comfortable. It's obvious that this home is lovingly cared-for and very well maintained. The electric car that comes along with the home adds so much value. The pool and backyard area are so pretty and very private. The owners, George and Jill, go out of their way to be helpful and accomodating wherever they can. The local caretakers, Marianne and Shawn, are quick to help and offer excellent advice on good places to see and all of the local goings-on. We had so much fun here, and we'd love to return next year. In short, great home, great value, great owners, great vacation! THANK YOU!

Paradise at last!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We would like to thank Jill & George so much for sharing their beautiful piece of paradise with us!!! I am so thankful that we picked their home instead of one in Old Town. Although Old Town is lovely, their home was so charming and larger than I thought it would be. The neighbors were very friendly and helpful, and we always felt safe. It was also very convenient to the grocery stores and one of our favorite restaurants, Chico's on Stock Island.
Having the electric car was so economical (did not have to buy expensive gasoline), great fun and convenient for parking near Duval Street downtown. You could park free in the spaces that were marked resident parking about 2 blocks away from Duval. We always found a resident parking spot on Southard or Fleming St. It became a daily ritual for us to take a drive at night along the ocean and down Duval when it cooled off.
We have never stayed in a vacation home that was so welcoming. We loved to sit in the living room and look out at the tropical oasis in the back. We loved the beautiful yellow flowering vines that were growing over the awning on the back deck. We could not believe how well stocked the house was. They even provided extras like rain ponchos, dvr for cable, computer and backup ink for the printer. You name it, they had it.
We especially appreciated and loved the beautiful pool. One of our favorite things was to come back after a long hot day and cool off in the pool. We also enjoyed our late night swims. It was always so refreshing.
Jill and George were BY FAR the best hosts we have ever had. They were so quick to respond to my emails, and I could always reach them by phone if we needed them. We will always remember our iguana friend, and the lizard that greeted me every morning at the same time on my glass bedroom door. We are very sad to leave and hope to return one day!
Thanks so much for everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
