The condo worked very well for us! The location was great.

  • 4 of 5

The property seemed a bit dirty. The master bed sheets had not been changed, there was sand and a leaf in it. I swept the floor and found several pieces of food that we hadn't cooked or eaten while there. As well as hair ponytail holders on the bathroom floor. We also saw a good sized cock roach run under the washer. I understand they're hard to control in Florida but with better cleaning it might be easier.

I would definatley consider staying there again but some cleaning should take place!

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed the location and the condo worked well for you. Our housekeeper, Anna, is known throughout Truman Annex for being one of the best and cleanest. Anna not only cleans sheets and linens well but also hospital corners when making beds. She makes the floors so clean you could eat off of them. If for some reason there was human error for the first time after 9 years of cleaning for me, she would have been over in a heartbeat to do an extra cleaning. I am very sorry you waited until after you left the condo to bring this issue to my attention.

First time in Key West

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Key West and it did not disappoint. The condo had the amenities needed for a week stay and we could not ask for more. The AC was not working correctly the first night but Susan was very attentive to make sure that it was fixed and our stay was enjoyable. The entire complex was beautiful, the pool was great, it was close enough to Duval St to walk but far enough way to be very quiet and private. Loved it! Will definitely be back.

Key West is all about Karma!

  • 5 of 5

A welcoming Karma is what you feel the moment you walk into the condo. From the photo montage in the entry way, to Susan's caricature on the door and all the way through. Wherever you look it is filled with the Key West ambiance that generates anticipation for your not-to-be-forgotten stay. And while Susan's home away from home has everything you need it has a few qualities that you will find in no other.

First you will find the Karma Cabinets. I will go no further on this subject other than to say they are quite welcoming and fully embrace the Spirit of Key West and Susan, your host. You will have to see for yourself. Secondly the condo is very comfortable and welcoming. The queen-sized bed is beyond comfortable and I have considered paying a king's ransome for the pillows. The front and back porches let you embrace the breeze and daily activities that help define Key West. The condo is extremely quiet and the AC works like a champ.

Susan has done more-than-thorough research on what to do, see, experience and where to eat. Let her be your guide. You will not be disappointed!

We have stayed in more than a few vacation rentals but this is the first where we have received such personalized and thoughtful service. When this old guy could not figure out how to operate the front door locking combination I sent an email. Within 5 minutes a phone call was received from Susan and she walked my Susan through the process. Out Karma Standing!

Key West is such a vibrant community with a life unto itself. Let Susan be your host and guide and let her help you make the most of your first of many visits.

I submit this review fully realizing it will be tougher to get a booking at Susan's wonderful home after this. But, after all, it is all about Karma!
