Amazing Room Provided by an Incredible Owner
My wife and I stayed here for a few days and loved it. It was very clean when we got there. We didn't use many of the things that were provided (bicycles, washer, dryer, microwave, dishes, etc.), but it was nice to know that these were there if we chose to use them. The location made it easy to walk just about anywhere that we wanted to go. The pictures provided are current and accurate. The owner provided OUT OF THIS WORLD service through his recommendations and communication. We took advantage of his insight and had wonderful breakfasts at Pepe's and Blue Heaven. We had lunch at El Meson De Pepe, great cuban food. We also had a wonderful dinner at Rooftop Cafe. Overall, the visit was fantastic. If you are like us and really enjoy a great burger, I would also strongly suggest Cheeseburger Key West! I actually emailed the owner and recommended adding it to the list.
A couple other thoughts to throw in. Definitely take a trolley tour early in your visit...it was relaxing and enlightened us on some of the things you may be surprised about as far as Key West. I would definitely recommend snorkeling. We went out on the Fury Double Dip and it was fantastic, other than several people getting stung by jellyfish. I would say though, learn to snorkel BEFORE going, learning on the fly was difficult for some and took away some of the enjoyment. We also went on a ghost tour...it wasn't scary, but it was very entertaining and there were many stories about the history of Key West that we probably would never have known otherwise. Also, if you want to take a picture at the Southernmost Point (like all visitors), go EARLY in the day or LATE in the evening unless you want to stand in a theme park type line. Most of all, make sure you bring some good walking shoes and a happy, carefree attitude. We were eating at one place and witnessed a family get up and leave because a bird flew in. It is Key West, what did they expect with doors open and such? The laid back feel of the entire island was awesome!
This was my first visit to Key West and definitely won't be my last! Great recommendations, comfortable and friendly place to stay and amazing water. I would absolutely recommend staying in this studio and at least trying out a few of the owner's recommendations. When we go back, he is the first person I'm contacting to see if he has a bigger place (to bring the kids) or any recommendations. He has a customer and friend here. Thank you again!
