Less than portrayed
Great location; dated photos.
Do not expect the guest bathroom to be near the guest bedroom, as you may assume from these photos. It is on the first floor through the livingroom and at the end of the kitchen with an open louver door!
The TV and stand are not as pictured...and the deteriorating present TV hutch allows viewing from only one loveseat...livingroom furniture is different than pictured. There are noisey wall- unit air conditioners in the livingroom and master bedroom (right next to the bed), but not even a fan in the second bedroom. The patio greenery pictured, which would have provided privacy from those walking through the parking area and up the open stairwell (directly above part of the patio), is no more! Therefore, those coming and going have a direct view through the patio (main entrance) doors, which you will note have no shades, allowing the 24/7 deck lights to shine into the loft bedroom all night.
Some of the things advertised were replaced (3 bikes-boys- and an iron) by the rental manager, who--in all fairness--had no idea that they were missing or offered on at least 2 different vacation rental sites.
The condo was sold during our stay, and I did leave a list of concerns about the lack of cups, cereal/soup bowls and general cooking utensils, knobs that fell off all of the master bath and guest bureau drawers. 90-91 degree pool temperature--easy fixes-- with the manager. Perhaps some of these areas are already corrected.
For the cost of this rental, one would expect a more functional and private unit....and many do exist in wonderful Key West .We did not let the lack of function ruin our month, but we did go to the beach everyday where we could find refreshing water temp and ate out almost every meal. We did not intend to do either of these things when we rented when we rented fully intending to cook in or grill (not permitted due to wooden decks, although we had an email stating a gas grill came with the building. (These activities added greatly to financing the rental)
I would not recommend this rental for 2 couples who need ANY privacy, either in the guest bedroom with its cutout walls or in the guest bathroom with its open louvered door at the end of the kitchen.
Key West is A MUST for a visit....so many good experiences; unfortunately, this rental was not one of them.
