My husband and I had an awesome stay at this studio in Key West. It was sublime to open the sliders and hear the ocean all night. To wake to the early morning sky and see the clouds peel away, revealing beautiful sand and water. Duval is an easy walk and/or bike ride. We went all around Key West and felt great coming back to the studio rather than a hotel. Mixing margaritas, reading a book while looking out the window before dinner was much better than hearing other guests in the halls. It felt like we were staying at a friend's house. Everything you needed was there. It was clean and well maintained. This is not an opulent space, the bathroom and shower are small, but big enough to do what you need to do. It is extremely comfortable with a clever use of space. The views are showstopping and you will be surrounded by peace.

Spend the money and rent the bikes from the owner, it's better than hassling with the bike vendors.

The owner left laminated maps of Key West with recommended restaurants including coffees, good deals, etc. We checked out one of them--an authentic cuban restaurant, and we weren't disappointed.

The owner was not onsite at the time we were there, but she checked in with us on our first night to make sure we had everything we needeed.

We left a bottle of wine for the next guests, hoping they would do the same before they left and that others after them would pay it forward.

You get access to the private beach and pool next door. It was fun to be able to take advantage of these amenitites and the staff were polite and accommodating.

Difficulty with property owner

  • 2 of 5

July 2015 we contacted Southernmoststudio for reservations for 1-8 Dec 2015 and were contacted by the owner by phone and asked us to deal with her directly not VBRO as is would save us money. Sending us forms, filling them out and send them back by return mail from Canada. She phoned us again to say we would have to pay an extra $200 plus $39 for admin and parking and not to arrive before 4pm. Unfortunately we did and she wanted to charge us as we waited for the room to become available - we said we'd leave and she changed her mind.

The experience of our arrival seemed to set the tone for our departure as we have been trying to get our "FULL DEPOSIT BACK" ever since. When clearing out on 8th Dec 2015 we asked if everything was ok for our refund and she said "ALL WAS FINE". We made sure that she had our Canadian address and Florida winter address where we would stay until April 2016. Now things get difficult herein.

5 Jan 2016, after waiting for refund we emailed Holly and her reply was "I THOUGHT I SENT YOUR $ORDER - FUNNY ANOTHER PERSON ASKED FOR SAME" - 5 April 2016, called Holly who was no longer receptive to giving the refund and only wanted to return half of money and she said " DIDN"T KNOW WHERE TO SEND IT" in spite of have no problem with our address when contacting us for booking the studio. 17 April 2016, Holly sent email stating she had tracked all refunds paid and "HAS ADDRESS OF ALL SENT RECORDED" except for our refund. 9 May 2016 ,sent a long letter to Holly asking where she sent refund and she replied"SHE WAS NOT GOING TO READ LONG LETTER AND HAD ALREADY SENT FULL AMOUNT BACK TO US IN FLORIDA". We asked our landlady (in Florida) to watch for the money but it did not show up there nor in Canada. 21 May, after this last contact with Holly we noticed her rental property was DISABLED on VBRO and reappeared later as "OCEAN OUT OF YOUR WINDOW OLD TOWN KEY WEST" with same VBRO # 41312. It has become quite evident that she is very contradictory in her statements about the refund and we wonder how many others have had the same issue. At this point it is no longer about the money so much as the principle. I would not recommend anyone to deal with her. One point of interest, whenever we spoke with her she always wore big dark glasses so not one could see her eyes!. In hindsight that seems most suspicious.

Owner's Response: Hey Will great talking with you for clarity as I stated this truly is an unfortunate misunderstanding and unintentional circumstance that is 100 % new to us- and may have been at my misunderstand at my part - at least it was typo /misunderstanding with papers and not a unit -vacation etc. event again Will thanks again 9/7/16 -Hello and thank you for the wonderful feed- back you left at the unit –I will be sure to post this as time allows– I am blessed to still have my mum to talk to everyday - yet I see my misunderstandings accepted at my part as I had left to take care of my 92 yr old mum at this time. I stayed in contact with you and stated that when I was to return – we could work and solve any misunderstanding- My forms are standard to all guests although it is typical when any person books with Canadian address [KEMPTVILLE ONT K0G1J0] -Usually its my standard upon arrival not charge the low $50. Sec. Deposit {the ccrd is on hand if we needed anyway-] To date I have never charged one person anything from their Credit cards on file – so my system really is an easy workable one- Since being in business since 2004 all of OUR FEED BACK HAS BEEN POSITIVE AND WE HAVE MANY RETURN GUESTS, [That’s why they gave me the moniker Holly hospitality!] If this was collected as guest states- It has been returned yet very late yes I admit. There is bound to be that one mishap –typo or disappointment in business at some point- that’s a no brainer- This since I was away I realize my delay to return deposit was frustrating - Florida address given and returned the money to- Thank you and I understand it didn’t go smoothly as planned. Sorry it happened to be you and too bad it happened at all- - My mum is fine now thanks to her ongoing care- At least it was a misunderstanding of a deposit return and not about your stay or the unit or anything unpleasant, except just a mix up and delay on a timely refund expected. BTW In reply about- My glasses are--my sun glasses, my driving glasses and my reading glasses I should be so lucky!

Best Location in Key West

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were fortunate this winter to spend ten days at Southernmost Studio. I found our 5 Star Studio on VRBO. I was hoping that the studio would be as nice as described but it was better than either one of us ever anticipated. We were afraid that being a studio it would be rather small. However, it was very spacious. We were within close walking distance of many restaurants on Duvall Street and the surrounding area yet our neighborhood was very quiet. Our patio was directly on the beach and every evening we would sit and have a glass of wine as the sun set. At night we could fall asleep listening to the waves..Bicycles were available that we rode daily around the island. It was so nice we are planning on returning next year.

The Best of Key West!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I had an amazing honeymoon experience in Key West. We couldn't have gotten a better place to stay! Its literally THE BEST spot in all of Key West. Quiet, private, clean, and cozy. You have all you need for your stay. Breathtaking views of the beach and ocean out every window! Just lay in the bed, listen and watch the waves! Enjoy your cup of coffee and enjoy the view from the cute little kitchenette. Theres a nice TV but we chose to enjoy only the beauty and entertainment of the Tropical nature. The beach is so private and the BEST in all of Key West. The pool next is door is really nice too.. enjoy both! We really enjoyed the bicycles too! How convenient to just hop on the bike and ride all over Old Town Key West, down Duvall Street and to Mallory Square without having to fight or pay for parking. Sunsets at Mallory Square are a must to attend! EVERY NIGHT! Holly is extremely nice, and very helpful with any questions you may have! She and her studio are one of kind! When we return to celebrate an anniversary, we will definitely be contacting Holly. :)

Loved the Privacy

  • 4 of 5

Celebrating our 30th anniversary, we wanted a quiet, private and romantic getaway. This studio was perfect. Enjoyed our coffee every morning with a beautiful view of the beach and palm trees. Close enough to the action that everything was easy to get to. Holly had great suggestions about where (and where not) to eat and things to do. Felt kind of special driving down our private sandy lane and so glad not to have to hassle with on-street parking. Suite had every kitchen convenience we could have wanted.

Try the upstairs 'tapas' next door at Louie's Backyard.Be sure to get there right at 5:00 and you will be rewarded with a charming table for two in a window/balcony overlooking the water. Magical.

Perfect Hide Away

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location! I traveled down from Miami to enjoy a couple days in Key West and a jet ski tour around the Island. It was just me and a buddy. I found Holly's place on VRBO and it looked perfect. Right on the beach, absolutely amazing view. There is a Jet Ski location right in front of the condo on the beach, so we just stumbled out of bed and jumped on some jet skis! The condo was nice, has everything you could need. The location is easy access to everything. We walked to Duval street, and to get meals. We also utilized the bikes that we're available and enjoyed that too. Holly was a sweet heart and had all kinds of good info on what to do and where to eat. Look forward to coming back! - T Post, Dallas, Tx
