Unbeatable view and great location

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for Christmas 2015 with our extended family (7 of us). A Christmas tree and decorations were provided by the owner and I can not say enough about how nice that was of them to do that for our two young boys. This house is HUGE and has lots of space. It's really nice to feel like you have your own space when you need a little decompress time. They provide plenty of towels, sheets, pillows, a full size, new washer/dryer set, and a really GREAT pool. The screened-in porch is wonderful for enjoying dinner or a relaxing breakfast. I think the best part is watching the cruise ships dock in the morning and enjoying a cocktail while watching the beautiful sunsets. Our family truly enjoyed this home.

The only suggestions I would give the owner is to talk to their cleaning crew about cleaning the floors. They were really gross. Our socks and feet were always dirty. One other suggestions is leaving some sort of instructions on how to use the very complicated whole house audio system along with the multiple T.V. systems (cable and satellite). Luckily, my husband is tech-savey so he was able to get us going and enjoying our Jimmy Buffett music while hanging at the pool.

Overall, this house is great. We will be back because you can't beat the location and the view of the ocean/sunset is extremely rare for Key West and well-worth the money spent. Until next time....

Owner's Response: Steps are being taken today to simplify the First floor TV and stereo system. We also have been informed that the problem with the floor is coming from the stain on the outside pool decking. Arrangements are being made to have it replaced ASAP.

Perfect for a Memorable Key West Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved staying in this beautiful Key West home. Located in Truman Annex (a quiet, private community in Old Town Key West), the location is perfect for whatever you wish to do during your Key West experience. Ocean Paradise has gorgeous views from the 3rd level balcony, a wonderful screened-in porch on the main level (perfect for al fresco dining), and an incredible pool area with a larger than expected private pool and stunning landscaping that provides both shade and privacy. The home's interior is both spacious and functional, including lovely furnishings and everything you need for a memorable vacation in beautiful Key West.

Just as important to us was the ease in managing our visit to Ocean Paradise. The owner and his staff were absolutely incredible to work with throughout the entire rental process. We had originally scheduled our visit for the 2014 Thanksgiving holiday week. However, a need arose which required us to cancel that planned stay. The property owner was gracious enough to work with us in our desire to reschedule our visit for May 2015, demonstrating a focus on and respect for his guests throughout the entire process.

Our Key West vacation, and specifically our week-long stay in Ocean Paradise, was undoubtedly a memorable experience for me, my husband and our two adult children (as well as the little "furry" member of our family who also joined us for our Key West adventure). We will be returning to Key West, and when we do, Ocean Paradise will be our chosen "home away from home" during our stay!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This is indeed a beautiful home and a great place to stay. I am giving it 5 stars in spite of a few things we noted that either weren't as advertised or need to be addressed.

The massage jets in the pool: according to the guy who came to clean the pool, they do not work. If they do work, there are no instructions as to how/where to turn them on.

The TVs: great TVs in each room...but they all had multiple remotes and no information on which to use. True...I didn't go to KW to sit and watch tv, but it would have been nice to turn it on in the mornings while getting ready or in the evenings when we were winding down.

Repairs needed: My sister got stuck in the master bathroom and had to go out on the front patio to come back in through my room. The sliding door in my bath also stuck quite a bit, but I could get it closed and opened. You can see marks on it where it drags, however.

Cleanliness: The floors need a good cleaning. Our feet would be filthy after walking barefoot in the house.

As I said, this place is great...the location can't be beat as we could walk to many of the places we wanted to go. With just a little TLC, this house would stand head and shoulders above the rest!

Just OK

  • 3 of 5

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Ocean Paradise for one week.

The good: great location (just a 3-5 minute walk to Duval Street) - but in a quiet neighborhood, also an easy walk (may be 10-15 minutes) to Fort Zachary beach, roof top balcony has view of ocean, the pool is a good size for Key West, a lot of space inside and out. Unfortunately, we found there was more bad than good. The bad: dated (and, in some cases, dirty) furniture and furnishings, the stereo system only worked half of the time, we never figured out how to get the television to work in the family room (far too complicated a system for a home rental), and we asked to check out at 11am instead of 10am - the request was approved, but at 10am the maids walked in and surprised us (proceeding to take the towels, strip the bed, and remove our clothes from the dryer - all while we were right there). When I told them we had another hour approved, they stayed in the home anyhow. We love Key West and will return, but we will not stay in this home again. For the price, I am confident you can do much better. We stayed at Southard Comfort last time and just loved the charm. The reason we decided to try Ocean Paradise was due to the slightly better location, ocean view, and larger pool. We would've been happier back at Southard Comfort.

On a side note, be sure to visit The Conch Republic (a great inside/outside restaurant with live music and great views - food is OK, but setting can't be beat), Sunset Key (a 5 minute boat ride from Pier 29 at Mallory Square), Amigos (tacos), and Duetto (pizza and gelato). We like Blue Heaven too - but think it is overrated - decent food and great setting, but always a long wait.
