About Carol Dunnigan
We visited Key West in 2001 and fell in love with our 'American Carribbean Island'. We are now retired and enjoy vacationing every February. We invite you to La Brisa, our 'home away from home' to experience all that Key West has to offer. We have found that the apartment is great for the two of us and has plenty of room when our family visits. We love the luxury of dining on the terrace-the view is just spectacular!
Carol Dunnigan purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Carol Dunnigan chose Key West
We chose Key West as our vacation location because it is not a typical 'retirement' community in Florida. It's motto is 'One Family' and people of all ages, from all ethnicities and all walks of life enjoy what it has to offer. The island is only 2x4 miles; however it offers everything you could want in an island vacation. Everyone in our family (including grandma, our children and their children) make wonderful memories in Key West.
What makes this Condo unique
LaBrisa is a gated community located across the street from Smather's Beach (voted #6 of Florida's top 10 beaches). You can actually stand on the terrace and see the rest of your family enjoying the beach. Everything is right there; food vendors, chair rentals, parasailing, sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, jet skiing, volleyball. A 4 mile walking and biking path runs along the beach and the ocean shore. The heated saltwater pool and hot tub are right there; plenty of lounge chairs both in and out of the sun. It is open 24 hours/day. Nothing beats a swim and jacuzzi on a warm night! A newly refinished tennis court is also on site. Getting down town is easy; a bus stops right outside the gate; it is a 20 minute walk and a 10 minute bike ride.

The location at Carol's condo was the best in Key West. We walked to some other beaches but Smathers was ideal; right across the street from the condo. There were beach chairs for us to use. Some days we took a collapsible cooler, some days we purchased lunch from one of several food trucks. We used the community pool mostly in the evening. The temperature of the water was perfect; the grounds are beautiful and neatly kept. There were only 2 of us so we had plenty of room, the condo can accommodate a few more people. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean; the kitchen was also well equipped. Breakfast every morning on the Lanai was a luxury for this northerner. I'm a star gazer so the darkness at the beach made for excellent night views. I recommend this condo community and hope to visit again!
GREAT VIEW/ LOVED KEY WEST
This condo. had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was great being right
across from the beach, as the view was beautiful! We rented bikes, so that we could
get downtown to bars and restaurants, which were a couple of miles away. The space
was ample for our family of 5, and everything we needed was provided (except food, of
course). I would not call this a luxury condo, as it could use a bit of renovation, but
the furnishings were attractive and comfortable. We did have a problem with the toilet
overflowing, and there was nobody available to fix the toilet and clean up, so I would recommend that the property manager/owners have someone that can be called for emergencies. If the whole apartment had flooded, there would have been a lot of damage to the property. Otherwise, we had a great time!
Thank you for your kind review. We find that the condo is great for our family and guests.
We were made aware of the toilet problem the morning of April 20th. Our regular maintenance person was not available but we were able to have a plumber remedy the problem of a stuck toothbrush by that afternoon. Both toilets have shut off valves below the tank; if this situation arises the water can be shut off immediately.
We apologized to the guests for the problem and also sent a $100 check to compensate for any inconvenience.
We pride ourselves in sharing our home with others; if any problem arises we make every effort the remedy the situation immediately.
Perfect location to the beach & a great pool too!
Could not have asked for a better location to a wonderful beach, easy to run home for lunch & then go back. Condo had most everything we needed, an outdoor grill was the only thing missing for our family, but having the view, closeness to the beach, a pool, & parking was all fantastic. You may not be as close to Duval Street, but hard to have it all in Key West. Our family can't wait to go back!
Awesome oceanfront condo with private balcony.
With 3 queen size beds, a sofa sleeper, big kitchen with dishwasher & a washer/dryer combo, this condo gives you room to enjoy a stay. The pool & hot tub are steps away & very nicely maintained. Quiet and beautiful. Owner is very responsive.
We had an absolutely wonderful time. The condo that we rented couldn't have been more perfect! The view was just like the picture shows! No surprises, all was great. Hope to go again in the future.
Thank you Phyllis, We're so happy to hear that we helped to contribute to your wonderful vacation. It is very important for future guests to know that our pictures and descriptions of our condo are accurate. WE hope you return again.
