A Pleasant March
My wife and I, mother-in-law, 2 dogs and various family members spent the month of March at Banana Breeze and had a very nice time. The one bedroom on the main level was very handy for my mother-in-law who uses a walker. The home is nicely appointed. We were told that a contractor was working right up to the day of our arrival to fix the place up after the hurricanes and that showed a bit. The manager, however, was Johnnie on the spot whenever we encountered something that needed attention. The view out over the water is very nice, except for the power lines running across the bay. The location was very quiet at night and we enjoyed lounging on the decks and watching the sunset after dinner. We rented a boat for the month so the complimentary dockage about a mile away was very nice. (We were the only boat at the dock.) If you want to be in the heart of Key West, this is not it, but we had no trouble driving the few miles to city center and finding parking when we wanted to be in old Key West. Having a Home Depot, Walgreens, liquor and grocery stores just a short walk out the back door was a worthwhile tradeoff. Our only suggestion for improving the place is to put additional comfortable seating out on the balconies because that's where you'll spend your time at the property. All in all, a very nice place to stay.
Gulf View with Awesome Sunsets
This rental property was the perfect place to stay to experience Key West with my family. The open floor plan on the lower level was perfect to share family time while the variety of bedrooms allowed for privacy. Each level offers an awesome deck viewing the Gulf where you can enjoy the beauty sunset brings. If you love Sunrises, a quick trip around to Smathers Beach is a great spot (we did!). The location is nestled in Key Cove, which is away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street but has plenty of area restaurant & bars to enjoy. When you want to hit the heart of Key West, Duval is only a 10 minute drive and you can Pay to Park for the day ($20-$30) or take a Pink Taxi. The rental had a welcome book that provided area suggestions, how to commute and top rated things to do which was very helpful! You'll enjoy the full kitchen, which the property manager has very thoughtfully stocked with necessary plates, cups, cooking utensils and even spices and latin flair mojo to get in the island state of mind! I really enjoyed the high level of concierge style service that working with Key West Vacation Homes provides and I can't wait to come back & stay again! Thank You!

An Island Oasis
We were so impressed with the location of our house and the decor inside. Such a clean area and a grand view. This was the perfect getaway! The property manager was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our time in this house and in Key West greatly. What a place!
Escape from city life
What a great experience! This home was so beautiful, we really didn't want to leave! Very clean and spacious home with a lovely balcony overlooking the ocean. We participated in a lot of water activities while in Key West and this home was close to all of them. Centrally located in the center of the island so you are close to grocery stores and shopping, yet close to downtown and Duval st. also. We can't wait to come back next year!
Spacious with an awesome view!
We had a wonderful stay at this property. It was very convenient to both new town shopping and old town. The view.... the view was AMAZING!! Best part of the house. We enjoyed sunset every evening from the back porches. We highly recommend!
