About Bruce & Leslie Redler

Our full time home is in HIlton Head, SC. We both work in the health care profession.

In addition to our 'home away from home' condo, Crown Jewel, in Key West, we also have a part-time home in Brevard, NC.

We are active - between the two of us we love scuba diving, fishing, mountain biking, snowskiing, tennis, running (well, for a 5K distance anyway!).

Both of our children are out of the nest - and we are taking the opportunity to enjoy the freedom to spend more and more time in our favorite spot in all of the world - right here!

Bruce & Leslie Redler purchased this condo in 2004

Why Bruce & Leslie Redler chose Lower Florida Keys

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Key West has the most beautiful water of anywhere in the USA!! We are certified scuba divers, and the Florida Keys offer incredible dive opportunities within the confines of the continental United States. We also love live music - which is readily available at most hours of the day/night here in Key West.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo was fantastic, for sure!

Also very close to almost everything as far as location goes.

Excellent kitchen accessories for cooking.

Thank you!

FAntastic apartment in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was immaculate and had everything you could need and more. It's exactly as it looks in the photos and is in a prime location within the block, with a fantastic view and sun on the balcony from 11am til sunset. There are a few cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance and it's about 40 min walk to the main centre of Key West. We had a fantastic few days here and would definitely recommend it.

Super nice and very comfortable!!

  • 4 of 5

Two couples (lifelong friends) spent a wonderful week in this gorgeous condo. It is decorated and furnished far beyond our expectations. And very clean! Our favorite part was breakfast on the balcony with this beautiful view. We enjoyed going to Duval Street and the "busy" part of town, but were so glad to come back to the quiet of "our" condo. Leslie was so helpful in booking and passing on information. Would highly recommend this condo.

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great space for our girls weekend birthday celebration. The property is so clean and the condo is not lacking for any amenity! Kitchen is stocked beyond belief and the furniture accommodated all six of us extremely comfortably both indoors and out. The view from the balcony is breathtaking! We were fortunate to arrive during the Lobster fest celebration and the owners recommendations were spot on for this event along with the local restaurants. Will definitely recommend and choose again when in Key West!

Fabulous condo!

This property is beautiful and well-maintained. We loved our ocean view and started each day with coffee on the balcony. The condo is furnished beautifully! We would recommend this property and would love to return for another visit.

We loved our stay at the Crown Jewel

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to the Crown Jewel. One week is not long enough to truly enjoy it and Key West. We felt like we were at home here.

The condo is beautifully decorated and we especially appreciated the fully equipped kitchen. The view from the balcony is exceptional. We enjoyed morning coffee and before dinner drinks out there.

We had some difficulty in regulating the water temperature in the master bathroom. On Wednesday we reported it to the Home Away rental agent who sent over a plumber. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to repair the problem until Friday before we left on Saturday.

We noticed the dryer was leaking a lot of lint behind it so might need cleaning hose and vent. Would not want a fire!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Key West has the most beautiful water of anywhere in the USA!! The Florida Keys offer incredible dive opportunities within the confines of the continental United States.

The Unique Benefits at this Condominium:

We love the tranquil, tropical garden/pool setting of our condo complex. Smather's Beach is right at our doorstep.

Yet, Duval Street - the hub of nightlife, dining and shopping, is just 5 minutes away to be enjoyed whenever we wish.

Our condo has a full oceanfront view - such that you don't even have to leave the condo to enjoy the beauty that Key West has to offer. Many a time, you just may find yourself getting stuck on 'The Perch'!!

Other Activities: Shopping. Parasailing, Boating
