About The Owner

Cousins Harry & Bill Salvatore and families, from Clearfield, Pa. and Ocean City, Md. respectively.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why The Owner chose Lower Florida Keys

La Brisa Condominiums are, in our opinion, the premier location on the Atlantic Ocean. Our grounds are not only tropical but are also warm and welcoming. La Brisa is a gated community and the access to our property is simple and convenient. There are no long walks to get to the beach. We love the view of the ocean and people watching on the promenade next to the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy sunrise on our balcony with your morning coffee and newspaper and then perhaps a walk, jog or bicycle ride on the 2.5 mile long promenade directly adjacent to our building along Smathers Beach

Paradise with a view

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to stay the view was just picture perfect. The condo had everything you could need. We enjoyed the pool and beach almost every day. There's a nice area set up with several grills with a view of a small pond. We could not have been happier with all this condo had to offer. We would stay here again and again. Thankyou The McFaddens and The McSorleys

This was our first stay in Bills Condo. Communication and information provided was excellent. We drove straight through gates of condo with security information provided, parked in spot communicated, and got right into problems. Condo was clean, beds made. Little shampoos, soap, toilet paper, papertowels, hair dryers, blender, tools and utensils in kitchen, dishwasher, choice of Keurig or regular coffee maker, washer/dryer, towels, wifi. BBQ grill outside by tennis courts which we used. Pool and hot tub is 24 hours use. We went to Smather's beach daily. We woke up everyday and had our coffee looking out over the ocean. He told us the best places to eat! We drove to Duval Street. Loved Blue Heaven restaurant (sit outside). We hope to come back again to Bill's condos someday!

Our Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time stay in Bills Condo. Communication and Information provided has been excellent both time. We enjoyed having coffee on the balcony every morning. Entertainment is provided by birds, Iguanas, Boats, Joggers and Traffic. Kitchen is very well equipped and all appliance were fully functional. Condo was very clean on our arrival. Grounds are well kept. Pool and Beach are just step away from the Condo. Key West Transit stop is conveniently located at the main gate. A weekly pass can be purchase for $8 that allows you transportation to anywhere on the Island. We utilized this service daily and had no issues. Thanks Bill for allowing us to use your home in Paradise at a reasonable price.

We Love It

Wonderful experience at this great condo! Communication was excellent from the start, we arrived and everything was in amazing shape with everything you could possibly want or need!We felt completely comfortable here in a matter of minutes! The condo is across the street from Smathers beach (one of the few beaches in Key West) and a short drive to everything else. If you want to go to sightseeing, to Duval Street, snorkeling, etc. - you'll have to drive and park in one of the city lots. (not a problem) The condo was quiet, clean and stacked with essentials. We finally did the trip to the Dry Tortugas and it was amazing!

Thanks Bill!

We really enjoyed the property, especially the view of the ocean from the balcony! The beach is only steps from the condo's pedestrian front gate. The pool in the complex was nice, always clean and never crowded. We had a car but also rented bikes to explore the area. The sunset celebration in Mallory Square was great. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the property very much!

Key west condo

  • 3 of 5

Pros: easy access to town, nice pool, friendly people, nice views.

Cons: master bedroom vertical blinds missing 10% of slats, dishwasher not bolted into counter top and tips over when loading and unloading, furniture outdated, needs several minor repairs along with appliance upgrade, not a secure community as advertised since our bike lock was cut and bikes stolen on second night there.

Owner's Response: After a long car ride, this customer arrived and was beset by one problem after another because of not bringing along the instructions I provide to each customer. Couldn't get into the complex, couldn't get into the elevator , couldn't find the reserved parking spot, couldn't even find the correct building ( there are 4 in our complex). None of this would have been an issue had the customer used the specific instructions I provide. On top of this, his two bicycles were stolen from the bike rack on the second day he was here. There is no complex in Key West that can prevent theft of something left outside, locked or not. You can imagine the security problems other complexes have with no type of fence at all. Addressing the specific complaints, Let me say that I was in the complex the whole time the customer was there. I did indeed fix the issues he addressed after he had left. If he had made those known to me, I would have fixed them immediately. The dish washer was not bolted in at all. I bolted it. The furniture in my home is new. Look at the pictures. The only thing I feel is remotely dated would be the porch furniture. It takes a beating facing the ocean and I will replace it today. You will note that no other customer has mentioned my furniture. The appliances are also new. I have extra vertical blinds in the owners closet and will replace the missing ones when I can next get access to the unit. Customers should always point out any problems with a unit and the chances of having them rectified are 100% better than complaining after they have left. This was a three star review. Not necessarily a bad review but certainly not in character with the other reviews of my home.
