The Top O the Town is a spectacular condo! We stayed there in Nov 2014 and couldn't have been more pleased!!!!
We love the seaport area and the location of the condo couldn't have been any better. It was just a short walk to many of our favorite places.
The condo itself is a study in luxury;from it's 13 ft ceilings to it's rooftop pool and terrace it is beautiful beyond belief !!
One of the things we liked most about the condo was it is so spacious !!! The walk in closets are huge and there is plenty of space for your belongings.... Nothing feels cluttered!!!
We also really enjoyed and appreciated the security of the condo and the elevators (the elevators are great when moving in or out!!!)
Another great asset of the condo is Shel, the guest service manager. His kindness and consideration is off the chart. He truly wants you to have a great vacation. He was quick to solve any problem that arose...and he always was just a phone call away.... We loved our stay and are already planning our next!!!'
This is our 3rd year with Last Key Realty and our 2nd time staying at Top of the Town. Need we say more.
Top of the Town is all about location, luxury and space. It is so close to everything in Old Town – restaurants, shopping, nightlife – all within walking distance. The condo had everything we needed for our 3 month stay and it is huge – offering social spaces and quiet areas, both inside, outside on the balconies or on the rooftop terrace. Appliances are top of the line, furnishings are comfortable, rooms are bright and airy and the elevator is a real treat.
Shel, our guest services manager, is such a pleasure to interface with. He is there immediately if/when the need arises for his services. He has great suggestions for restaurants and things to do. He not only handles issues as they arise, but is genuinely interested in making sure we have what we need to be comfortable.
We are looking forward to being back next year!
Bright, airy apartment with everything you need for a great holiday. The location was perfect for us as it's a 10 minute walk to the middle of Duval and 5 minutes stroll to the Schooner Wharf Bar, and the waterfront is just a minute away. Ferry to Dry Tortugas in the doorstep and nowhere too far to walk. Roof terrace great for sun worshipers with small dipping pool to cool off, but with only an umbrella for shade it could do with a little extra shade and maybe a little greenery to make it more personal. Downside is the noise from the coolers opposite the outside terraces. The living room and bedroom terraces were far too noisy for us, but the roof terrace fine and we BBQ's and ate there.
Shell is superb and so helpful, nothing is too much trouble - thank you.
Our stay at Top O’ The Town during the month of December was nothing short of spectacular. Everyone in our group, from my 89 year-old father to an 8 year-old, had a fantastic time.
On our arrival at the airport, we gave Shel a call and he met us at the condo – it’s only about a 10 minute cab ride. Shel led us into the parking area, directed us to the elevator dedicated to our unit and helped us upstairs. When the door opened on the third floor, we were in awe…….
This place is HUGE !!! The kitchen, living room and one bedroom (with 2 twin beds) are located on the third floor and the other two bedrooms, each with king size beds, are on the second floor. The furnishings of the condo are excellent – the kitchen has Viking appliances and each floor has balcony access from all rooms. One of the earlier reviews mentioned the noise associated with an air conditioner unit – that unit was replaced during our stay and the noise was greatly reduced.
The pool and grill are located on the roof and the view, while not quite waterfront, was very nice. While Shel was showing us how to adjust the temperature for the pool we discovered that the heater was not working – Shel made a call and had the problem fixed in time for us to enjoy the pool for sunset. Just up a set of stairs from the pool deck is a well-appointed common area.
One thing that we noticed about the building was how well secured it is. Shel gave us 3 sets of keys, each one contained a magnetic fob that had to be used to open the gate and access the private elevator. You need to remember to take that key with you when you go to the pool – or you can’t get the elevator door to open.
There are numerous restaurants and bars within walking distance of the condo, and the concierge can assist with reservations Just down the street from the unit is Old Town Bakery – perfect for breakfast muffins and coffee cakes. Fausto’s is a local grocery store which is about a 10-minute walk from the condo - if you want to go to Publix you’ll need to call a cab.
Shel stayed in contact with us throughout our stay – checking to see if we needed anything, or just letting us know about times for the Christmas parade and other local events. If we had a problem with anything in the unit, which was very rare, all we had to do was give him a call and it was fixed within a day.
Key West is a fun place and Top O' The Town is the place to stay!!
This property has everything one could imagine! Spacious and comfortable, our family had a wonderful 2013 Christmas! Everything was open and sunlit, just as one would expect in Key West. Being there for almost the month was a home away from home! All rooms were genuine in their comfort, and when it came time to retire, the bedrooms were spacious and private.
The Viking equipped kitchen was a bonus, as we are "foodies" but, fabulous restaurants were all within walking distance.
The Concierge provided information for local deliveries or anything with which we wanted to inquire. Also enjoyed was the short boat ride to Latitudes, the Westin restaurant on Sunset Key. Key West sunsets were enjoyed immensely either by our private pool or at Mallory Square.
I have been to Key West many times to big game fish and I appreciate the amenities A&B Marina has to offer. However, I have told all my friends that whether you fish or not, and would love a beautiful,relaxing place to stay, "Top O' The Town" is where they need to be!
Now, to Shel. I have never in my travels, stateside or international, met a more wonderful host. He is truly a warm, professional and accommodating gentleman who genuinely wants one to have a great time and enjoy their stay. We need more Sheldon's in luxury travel.
I can't say enough accolades about Top O' The Town and I hope to be back soon!
Best wishes to all,
If you are looking for location and luxury, look no farther than the Steamplant condo. This condo is well appointed with plenty of space in all rooms. The main level has a large open floor plan, lots of light in all rooms and very comfortable furnishing. We were definitely spoiled with the elevator. It became our best friend on arrival/departure day or just after a shopping trip.
Three couples (and a dog) shared this condo and we had plenty of space for spending time together. The bedrooms are very large with an en suite bath and plenty of closet and storage space. Each bedroom has a quiet spot with a chair for reading or watching TV and your own balcony if you prefer being outdoors. The air handler across from the unit is somewhat noisy, but we viewed it as white noise. When the sliding glass doors were closed you could not hear any outside noise. The kitchen has top end appliances and is well stocked with everything needed whether we were just having a snack or cooking a full meal.
Wow! You cannot say enough about that rooftop terrace. It is a sun worshippers dream. We had a fantastic view of KW with a front row seat for the fantastic sunsets. We also had the advantage of utilizing the common areas to watch the sunsets (no crowds to content with!) What a way to end the day…watching the sunset while grilling dinner. We were able to see the cruise ships as they pulled into or out of port. Even though the pool is small it did allow for a refreshing dip. The terrace could only be improved with the addition of some greenery to give it a more homey feel and a bit more shade for the times when you’ve had your sun quota for the day.
We were just a very short walk from Duval St, Mallory Square and all the shopping and restaurants you could want. Even though you are in the heart of the city you can still enjoy an early morning bike ride down Duval which allows you to see the other “quieter” side of Duval. We took walks along the harbor to look at all the beautiful boats.
Shel, our guest services manager, is a real sweetheart. He gave us tips on restaurants including some new ones that had opened since the previous year. He is very accommodating and was always there to make our stay perfect.
Overall, the condo was comfortable with everything we needed to make our stay a very pleasant carefree time. We are already looking forward to our return stay next year.
