My wife and I stayed at the Sea Shell Cottage to celebrate our 40th anniversary. It was our first stay at the Sea Shell and we could not have made a better choice. Everything is there that you will need. So private yet so convenient. We are looking forward to a return stay. Carolyn and Wendy were great!

Wonderful Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Seashell Cottage. We stayed there for a week and everything was as promised. It was the perfect size for my boyfriend and myself and everything was clean and well stocked. The king size bed was very comfortable. We absolutely loved the outdoor shower, we didn't use the indoor one at all! And even though it was 100 degrees, we still loved and used the hot tub. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone and cannot wait until we can book it again. We flew into Key West airport and rented bikes for the week and I am so glad we did. The house is in such a great location, as it is close to mostly everything, especially by bike. Carolyn and Cindy were wonderful to work with. We will definitely be back!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Treetop Jasmine Suite for a week in April. We are dying to go back!

The location of this property is AMAZING. And even better, AFFORDABLE! There are tons of places around the island to stay, but you get everything you need here for a great price. You can walk anywhere if you bring the right shoes! Up and down Duval to Sunset, to Fort Zachary (this was our favorite beach), and to tons of restaurants and bars.

We flew into Miami Airport and drove down the length of the Keys to the cottage (about three hours). It's such a beautiful drive! When we arrived we realized we don't need a car so we returned it to the Key West Airport and rented bikes. Highly recommend renting a bike - it was an excellent way to explore the island and get around! Cabs are a quick phone call away to bring you elsewhere. Sidenote.. If you are doing the drive to/from Miami to Key West - definitely stop at Bahia Honda beach, it is truly beautiful (this was one of Dave the Inn Keeper's wonderful recommendations).

There is a nice covered balcony/entryway to the cottage where you can sit at the end of the night and enjoy some drinks. There is also a kitchen with everything you need (though, why cook when there are TONS of wonderful places to go out and eat?). The sitting room was nice, and everything in the suite was well appointed in general. We experienced that nice "hotel" feel. We were also able to stock up on beach towels and other necessities like suntan lotion at the Inn.

We loved it and can't wait to come back! Thanks Dave and Carolyn!

Definitely A Wonderful Stay!

My friend and I went last year to key west. I had never been. My friend had been numerous times and stayed in all different places in Key West. We were both in need of a little vacation time. I had spotted this place. What caught my attention was the private Jacuzzi, the affordable pricing and great reviews. Then, we contacted the place and Carolyn was extremely polite, informative and accommodating. We stayed on the top of The Poinciana Place. It was perfect for us! We really enjoyed and loved the entire stay! Bruce is very low key and nice. He came by to basically welcome us, answer any questions we had and make sure we had everything we needed. This was about a year ago and we cannot wait to return. My friend who has stayed so many times in all different places on the island was just as impressed as I with Lazy Lane Cottages. Also, the location is excellent; It's quiet, serene right where you stay but within a 5-10 minute walk/2-3 minute bike, you're near everything you could want. It even rained half the time and because of how comfortable the room was, it didn't hinder our stay at all. We were able to relax in the Jacuzzi and watch the rain pour down. The fact that the Jacuzzi is private puts it over the top, for me! I honestly could go on and on because my friend and I were so pleased with our stay at Poinciana Place. Unfortunately, this past year I became sick but am in recovery now and extremely thankful and fortunate. Now, I am able to go out, get in the water and walk again. Therefore, I cannot wait to book our trip this year and even more of a reason to celebrate being here and able to take such a nice trip. (Note: I am not certain if I have the exact date of arrival correct. It was either the date selected, Thursday, June 20 or the previous Thursday, June 13 that we arrived. I apologize for that.) It has been described as a hidden treasure, which is precisely what it truly is.

Perfect Place in Key West

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from our first visit to Key West. So much fun! Our stay was particularly perfect because of our ideal accommodations. We spent a week in Poinciana Place (upstairs) and could not have asked for a more comfortable arrangement in a more ideal location. Carolyn and Bruce made our arrangements and arrival carefree. The cottage is convenient for walking in every direction but on a quiet lane without noise and foot traffic. Every consideration for a comfortable stay has been made. We loved relaxing in the jacuzzi after a day of walking, snorkeling, kayaking, and shopping. Every review here is right on target. There is no need to look around - Any of the Lazy Lane accommodations will be right for your Key West stay. Thank you, Carolyn and Bruce.

Home Away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week stay at the Seashell Cottage. Everything, from booking to check out, went very smooth. Communications with Carolyn and Wendi are fantastic! The cottage is adorable, homey, clean, and has a very spacious feel. Every amenity has been considered and provided for. The outside shower is the best! The king bed is very comfortable. We actually looked forward to returning to our cottage just for that needed downtime! It's a wonderful thing to climb into the Jacuzzi to relax and soothe tired legs and feet after a day of walking. The location is perfect. We were able to pack less clothes due to the washer/dryer provided, and towels supplied are nice quality and plentiful. Thanks bunches to Carolyn and Wendi for providing such a wonderful experience! We look forward to our next stay at Seashell!

Wonderful, hidden gem!!

  • 5 of 5

Living in Florida, making an annual Keys trip for the past 15 years. I've stayed at many places throughout Key West. This year my girlfriend and I made the trek from Tampa. The Seashell Cottage has, by far been the best accommodations at a reasonable price. Carolyn was a pleasure to deal with on the business end and Wendi was very attentive to our needs once there. Upon our arrival, there was everything from a wonderful welcome note to fresh flowers in the kitchen. Everything was super clean and much appreciated. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we could ask for, and the spa was perfect after a long day walking, exploring the island. The hammock was a perfect place to enjoy a scotch after dinner and let the world go by. The outdoor shower was used often and is a must try for anyone who stays here. This will definitely be a regular stay on trips to Key West... Thank you Carolyn and Wendi!! It was PERFECT!!
