A Charming Property and Great Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The Villa is quite charming and perfect for two people. We loved the neighborhood and often joked about it being "Pleasantville" after visiting the Key West restaurants & bars in old town. We loved it all but were happy to come home to our Villa. We biked almost everyday and only used the car a couple of times. I even biked to the grocery store. Definitely rent bikes!!!! The property: We loved the screened porch, the fitness center, the firmness of the mattress and quality of bath towels. We had a couple of issues during the first few days(broken cabinet and a few minor things) which were dealt with quickly and made us happy. A few negatives, the hurricane shutters were still attached and opened outward about a foot which made the Villa rather dark. Also, there is a need for a few table lamps in the living area and bedrooms for a place to read. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Key West, especially if you are golfers. I don't golf but really loved seeing the Iguanas sunning themselves on the golf course.

Another great visit at Irma's

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property. It is a well managed, clean, quiet, accommodation that invites you to stay longer. When I say quiet, please understand that the neighbor has two small dogs that announce their presence on occasion, but the sounds were never intrusive (I should mention that I am biased against small yippy dawgs). The unit is steps away from the pool and fitness center... a big plus. The site is relatively convenient to Key West... a 10 to 15 minute drive to the Mallory square area. Parking, like Key West can require one to be creative, but we never had to walk very far to get home. It will need some updating soon, still we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to return next year.

Paradise plus!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, very clean & well stocked villa. When you enter the villa it has a very welcoming atmosphere. Soft music, lights on, & spotless furniture. The kitchen has everything a gourmet cook would need. Clyde was very helpful with any concerns or questions. Prompt service beyond expectations. I would highly recommend this villa & hope to return again in the future.

Comfortable, clean, convenient, and "Conchy"

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our month @ IETBG. This unit is set in a tropical green space filled with native trees and located steps away from the fitness room (which we used almost daily) and a fantastic swimming pool (likewise). IETBG is complete... no need to bring utensils, linens, etc... the realty associate even went shopping for an iron for us to use. (Who needs an iron in Key West?

: - )) Management is responsive to any and all inquiries and works diligently to ensure that you have a perfect vacation. Parking was sometimes difficult but never impossible. Go! Enjoy!
