I have been renting homes for vacation for the past 7 years, Sea Biscuit has been one of the best homes we have ever rented. First of all the location was great, next to Duval and a few blocks to the beach. The pool was wonderful! The furnishings and the little extras in the home were perfect, from the beach towels, spices, goggles and even sunblock! All the other homes I have rented were a complete empty shell, this home makes you feel like your in your own home. Todd was exceptional, although I never spoke with him because my son in law and daughter rented it, but when ever you had a question, he would contact you right back, which is comforting. The home is very clean, beautiful, and newly renovated, very tastefully. My daughter and her husband Frank stayed in the guest house which was sooo perfect (newlyweds ) and my sister, brother in law and husband stayed in the main house, it was just perfect! There is not one negative word I could say on this property, I only wish on future vacations we luck out like we did with Sea Biscuit. Thank you Todd! We had a wonderful time in the Keys, and are diffinately looking forward to coming back and staying there again, without a doubt!

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
I can not begin to give this property a high enough rating! The inside of the house is exactly as the pictures show and it is obvious Todd, the owner, takes pride in maintaining an "at home" atmosphere. We lacked for nothing while staying here. The kitchen was very well stocked and we were able to eat in several nights. Location of the house is perfect for people of all ages. We were traveling with teenagers and all of us hope we can return to the exact same property in the near future!

Sitting at the airport wishing I were still in the pool at Sea Biscuit! We were so comfortable there! Fantastic design and finishing touches. Like borrowing a friend's home instead of a rental. High end fully equipped kichen had everything you need of the same quality you are used to at home. No ticky-tacky rental quality here. Comfortably upholstered furniture and beds. This was the first time we had rented a house with a pool. So worth it!!! The delightfully furnished outdoor seating and heated pool was enjoyed at all times of the day. As much as we love going to Higgs Beach And Salute's, it was such a luxury to hang out at our own pool!

As others have said, just steps off the quiet end of Duval. We always rent bikes and all of Duval is easy biking or strolling distance.

We will definitely return!

Is Sea Biscuit for you?

  • 2 of 5
While the remodel of Sea Biscuit is done to perfection, we were surprised the living room was smaller in person than the picture looked to us. The kitchen needs oven mitts, & plastic wear for the pool area.
If you like to sleep at night this rental may not be for you. Between the constant roasters crowing ,the music/entertainment from the establishment across the street(it does stop about 11:00)but still disruptive, the cars buzzing past w/loud radios, scooters, garbage trucks, delivery trucks, loud neighbors, etc-if there is noise you are going to hear it! The bedrooms are on the front side of the home-no getting around it.
There is only one table for eating & it's outside.-
Perhaps one of the most disappointing elements of our stay was having little to no sun by the pool-for tanning. The deck is small and overcrowded with furniture. At 11:00-11:30 you must drag one of the 2 loungers to the wall of the pink guest house and push it against the siding. The other person will need to maneuver their lounger in between the two white columns. It takes time to get this done just right, but you have no choice as these are the only two places sun is available on the deck –probably because there is so much foliage. By 2:2:30 there is only a sliver of sun on the deck. It is in front of the pool and just wide enough to hold one lounger.-Oh & speaking of the pool-the heater was broken and only was repaired on Thursday afternoon.-a Full 6 days into the vacation.
The guest cottage is nice, but the refrigerator was broken & there was no small coffee pot as shown. It had a strong musty smell. The bed in guest house was a high boy and did not have a step to get into it. My poor 5’4 foot sister had to get a running start to get up into it. Todd suggested we take a chair from the deck & use it. For the “high season” weekly rate we paid for this rental a lady in her 50’s should not have to use a deck chair to get into bed.-Finally you should be aware that being this close to Duval Street makes for nefarious types of people around the property. Our rental bike was stolen-and yes, we locked it up. We had to pay $250.-so keep that in mind. We felt Sea Biscuit is a more of a party place-not a relaxing vacation spot. The front porch is nice and the a/c works very well.Todd is a nice guy and this review is not about him or his character. This review is about OUR experience and it wasn’t all that good.~

Owner's Response: I am deeply disappointed that this visitor did not enjoy their time at Sea Biscuit. I appreciate the kind words about the recent renovation of the property and the experience interfacing with me. I only regret that they did not mention some of the noted concerns during the conversations we had that week, as perhaps we could have addressed them or made other arrangements.
I would like to provide some comments regarding several of the items noted.
Sun in the Yard: I have trimmed some of the trees to increase the amount of sun, however, the pool area gets mostly morning and early afternoon sun. This is typical of most houses in Key West. In our welcome letter we recommend beaches within walking distance for those that want direct sun all day.
The Sounds of Key West: In Key West, homes that are rented for less than one month require a special license. The location of these homes is restricted to certain areas near Duval St. Sea Biscuit is in the area that is known as the "quiet end" of Duval St. (there are increased noise controls). However, roosters and sounds of people on the street are part of Key West. A feature of Sea Biscuit is the new windows that are rated to withstand hurricane force winds. When closed, these windows provide a sound barrier. I was sorry to read about the bike being stolen. The welcome letter specifically calls out that Key West is generally a safe place, however, bicycles are the key items that are stolen and securely locking bikes is necessary.
Items in the House: The pool heater malfunctioned on the day that this party arrived. The part was shipped overnight as parts are not always on hand in Key West. I regret the inconvenience this caused... at least it was a time of year when the weather is hot and the visitors were able to use the pool. The bed in the cottage is a Poster Bed and is pictured in the posting. I will look for a stool as a backup... however, there are two other lower beds in the other bedrooms.
Kitchen Items: There are plastic glasses in the kitchen. I have moved those to a lower shelf so that they are easier to find. Also, I have added kitchen mitts and put a new coffee pot in the cottage.
I suspect that Key West may not be the type of destination that these visitors were looking for. I request that viewers of this review read the other Sea Biscuit reviews or ask me about any concerns.

St Patty’s week at Seabiscuit Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here. The cottage was better than expected. Great atmosphere and everything was perfect for the 6 of us. Very clean, and well kept. The pool was wonderful and very refreshing after sight seeing.
We stayed during St Patrick’s week and Spring Break.
Duval St was really interesting and provided a fun place to spend some time. South Beach was just a few blocks away. Some of us rented bicycles which gave us a way to see more of the island.
We vacation as a group often, and this was definitely a favorite!

Super, relaxing vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic place in a great location. My wife and I (late 50's) stayed in the guest suite and our 2 daughters (late 20's) and boyfriends stayed in the main house. Perfect setup. The 2 areas share a beautiful patio/pool area. It's hard to believe you are in the middle of town, as this area is VERY private and relaxing. The description and photos of Sea Biscuit do not begin do this property justice. Todd was also very helpful and attentive when setting up the rental and returned the security deposit within a week. Would stay here again in a minute! (I now have a new "favorite place" to go when my head needs it.)
