Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

This gem is located at the end of a hidden lane, just off Simonton Street, behind The Gardens Hotel. Helen's Hideaway is a step back in time to Key West during its slumbering past. Built by David Wolkowski, who built many of Key West's premier resorts, including the Pier House, this paradise reflects his passion for special details. Just past the outdoor shower, walk behind the large scheffeleras, open the gate and find yourself strolling down a Key West secret lane to Duval Street! You will be one of the few and privileged to be able to do this!

The fully air-conditioned main house has the kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom and bath. The kitchen has everything you will need if you desire to cook during your stay. The dining room seats up to six comfortably, with an oak pass-thru to the kitchen. All along the living/dining room wall are floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that look out onto the pool and gardens.

The large recently renovated master bathroom features a completely tiled shower that is 6' x 6', double sink vanity with 2 large mirrors and sliding glass doors leading out to the pool.

The second bedroom and bath are in a separate cottage with sliding glass doors surrounding two sides overlooking the pool and deck. It features a bath that has sliding glass doors which lead out to the pool.

Our family has been coming to Key West for 30 years and Key West Vacation Rentals is the reason we keep coming back! We especially enjoy staying at Helen's Hideaway, w/it's private heated pool and two units (so the kids can have their own space) - we highly recommend you make the trip to one of the most enjoyable vacations to one of the most relaxing & exciting cities at MM"0"!

Reviewer Comments:

Helens Hideaway is pretty much as described. It is however in need of some serious TLC. Too many little things not working, broken and overall dated take away from what could be an amazing place to stay. The walls and furniture have seen better days, like thirty years ago! Blender smelled like vomit, slider on master bedroom had lock held together with masking tape. Lights broken, fire extinguisher expired, clocks not working, lights out or missing. When attempting to watch television, you had to fumble through two different remotes etc. There were no instructions or guides for televisions. Could be easily simplified. Overall a nice location and for the price a decent spot to stay. Pool is the highlight of house. Future guest be forewarned... There is one parking space in front of the house. When checking in I specifically asked if it would be alright to pull the second car in to unload. 5-10 min max. And did I mention there was plenty of space, no one was being blocked in, driveways blocked etc. And out comes the crazy neighbor lady screaming, pointing and dancing around like a Key West chicken going on and on about our parking being limited to one space. And yes I had suitcases in my hand actively unloading said second car, which was running, as she does this, Twice! Just a bad way to start our stay with a weird neighbor, who by the way has you on camera as soon as you pull in.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We do have maintenance and furniture replacements scheduled for later in January. Hopefully you find time to come back so you can see the changes for yourself! We apologize for the neighbor, she has been victimized many times over the years by people blocking her in and may have over reacted.

Reviewer Comments:

I rented this location on 12/16/16. Check in was at 3 and we arrived at the property at approx. 3:30/3:45. When we arrived the cleaning crew was still on site. This normally would not be an issue but for my experience when checking out. The next morning, we left the premises at approx. 10:30am. Prior to leaving, we packed our bags and left them in the rooms. I received a call at 12:00pm from a very rude gentlemen by the name of Jason from Key West Vacations. He informed me check out was at 11 and they now " have to" charge me a 100.00 late check out fee. When we arrived back at the house at 12pm to collect our bags, the cleaning crew was on site. i.e, they were in no way affected by us having our bags there. We turned in keys in by 12:30pm and left for the airport. In short, Key West Vacations took it upon themselves to collect an extra 100.00 simply because we didn't return out keys by 11 am. Returning the keys at 12:30 in no way financially impacted Key West Vacation and was a disingenuous way for them to make an extra buck. I was planning on using them in January and February of this year but will no longer be doing so. Also, be careful as they will charge 150.00 for a lost key. -Chase

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are very disappointed that you felt you were not treated properly by one of the members of our staff. We actually do not have anyone named Jason that works at Key West Vacation Rentals, but I am sure whoever it was that spoke with you meant no disrespect. For late check-out's, we are forced to charge guests extra since we have to send in additional housekeepers to make sure the house is ready by 3 PM for the next guest. We are by no means trying to make "an extra buck" at anyone's expense. Guests are welcome to store bags or luggage at our main office. We even have a shuttle driver that can come pick you up, pick up your luggage for you, and take you to the airport or ferry later in the afternoon when you are ready. In mid-December 2016, Key West Vacation Rentals installed electronic on all of our properties so guests longer need to worry about keeping track of keys (except front gate keys). Guests can also now check out on their mobile device by downloading the KWVR app in the app store.

Reviewer Comments:

Helens hideaway is a perfect rental, especially for 2 couples. You have the privacy of 2 separate King bedrooms. The pool is wonderful. You are nestled in away from everything. Then it's just a 5 minute walk to the center of duval. Each time we go back to key west, we will be staying at Helens hideaway.

Great location, but property in need of serious upgrades. Lighting was not working; second bathroom real small. Kitchen not real functional and sink easily clogs. Thought it was a pricey stay for the property. Won't stay here again.
