|Minimum Stay||28 nights|
VACATION... like a local in Old Town Key West just a few short blocks from the Historic Seaport area where you will find waterfront restaurants and quaint shops. This ground floor unit is conveniently located near the sunny swimming pool and offers a private covered patio framed with bright bougainvillea Upon entering you are greeted by a wave of calm turquoise amidst chic beach decor and soaring ceilings.
DINE.... in the spacious, open living / dining area with seating for 6 at the dining table or well appointed kitchen with stainless appliance package and bar offering additional seating.
SLUMBER... in the downstairs cheerful coral master bedroom with a sparkling white en suite bath and glass enclosed shower or upstairs in the lofted bamboo bedroom with soothing natural light and clever architectural details.
PLAY... like a child on summer vacation in this home equipped with all you will need to unwind plus street parking for one car at your back door.
Great location. Pool area was terrific. Unit was clean and well decorated. Limitations..second floor bedroom is clearly a loft not bedroom, guest bath on first floor, no central air/heat (window air units only), noise generated from floor above.
We spent a month here and thoroughly enjoyed every day. The pictures are exactly as the unit is presented. It was very clean and well socked with basic supplies. The condo felt safe with a well locked entrance and private parking. Walking to everything was a highlight of our trip. The wharf is blocks away, fabulous restaurants are all within walking distance, Duval Street is a short distance, and a fantastic seafood market is a block down the street. We ate in the condo many nights experimenting with new fish varieties. Our only concern was the air conditioner in the master bedroom which blew air directly onto the bed. We will return, the condo is perfect for two couples.
Great location; dated photos.
Do not expect the guest bathroom to be near the guest bedroom, as you may assume from these photos. It is on the first floor through the livingroom and at the end of the kitchen with an open louver door!
The TV and stand are not as pictured...and the deteriorating present TV hutch allows viewing from only one loveseat...livingroom furniture is different than pictured. There are noisey wall- unit air conditioners in the livingroom and master bedroom (right next to the bed), but not even a fan in the second bedroom. The patio greenery pictured, which would have provided privacy from those walking through the parking area and up the open stairwell (directly above part of the patio), is no more! Therefore, those coming and going have a direct view through the patio (main entrance) doors, which you will note have no shades, allowing the 24/7 deck lights to shine into the loft bedroom all night.
Some of the things advertised were replaced (3 bikes-boys- and an iron) by the rental manager, who--in all fairness--had no idea that they were missing or offered on at least 2 different vacation rental sites.
The condo was sold during our stay, and I did leave a list of concerns about the lack of cups, cereal/soup bowls and general cooking utensils, knobs that fell off all of the master bath and guest bureau drawers. 90-91 degree pool temperature--easy fixes-- with the manager. Perhaps some of these areas are already corrected.
For the cost of this rental, one would expect a more functional and private unit....and many do exist in wonderful Key West .We did not let the lack of function ruin our month, but we did go to the beach everyday where we could find refreshing water temp and ate out almost every meal. We did not intend to do either of these things when we rented when we rented fully intending to cook in or grill (not permitted due to wooden decks, although we had an email stating a gas grill came with the building. (These activities added greatly to financing the rental)
I would not recommend this rental for 2 couples who need ANY privacy, either in the guest bedroom with its cutout walls or in the guest bathroom with its open louvered door at the end of the kitchen.
Key West is A MUST for a visit....so many good experiences; unfortunately, this rental was not one of them.
Old Town Key West is a magical place where you will feel instantly relaxed and welcomed by the warm nature of the locals and you won't need more than a bicycle to get around.
