Left on Nov 15, 2016 for a stay in Nov 2016

This is our second year staying in this beautifully decorated, spotless cottage. We were very fortunate to have found (probably) the best place in the Keys. From sunrise to sunset you can enjoy this beautiful home. Start your day listening to the roosters crowing while enjoying your cup of coffee on the private deck in back of the house. Complete the evening sitting in the spa, enjoying an adult beverage or two after a relaxing fun day at the beach. While going to dinner is fun, you can cook breakfast and put dinner on the grill. Rent bikes and have them waiting for you when you arrive, this is the best way to get around this beautiful town. We rode our bikes in the morning to catch the sunrise, then rode to Zachary Taylor to spend the day at the beach. In the evening we walked to Mallory Square to catch the sunset. No need to pack tons of clothing as there is a washer and dryer for your use, save some money on checked baggage. Enjoy the outdoor shower under blue skies. Absolutely the best place to stay. Looking forward to our trip next November! There is really nothing more you could ask for.

Second Home

  • 5 of 5

When we first visited Key West we stayed at Poinciana Place and absolutely loved it,but we wanted to try the Seashell and 6 months later reserved it. When we got there Trevor and Sydney were just finishing putting the final touches together for us and after a quick lunch walked us through. It was everything we envisioned.

The coziness of the cottage was matched only by its spaciousness. After a day at Fort Zach on the beach it was wonderful to come back and try the outdoor shower. The grill was perfect for brauts and later on the hottub was luxurious.. Especially with the different colored lights! When we felt like doing little it was very relaxing to just lounge in the living room with the shades open allowing the sun to come in or to sit on the porch swing and shoot the breeze with the local neighbors or hang out with their cat Mr. Gloria!

Before we left we bought our customary Thank You card along with a couple of bottles of wine for our gracious hosts. We have always enjoyed your hospitality and we cannot wait until we come back again. The Seashell is perfectly located for quick access to Duval, Simonton, or Truman or to any of the quaint neighborhoods behind Whitmarsh... Which we took advantage of and toured.

Thank You Carolyn for allowing us once again to share your home as if it were ours. We greatly appreciate it and you!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely, descriptive review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and took the time to write about it. Sitting on the front porch swing and communing with the neighbors and cats is also one of my favorite cottage activities. Something that doesn't happen for most people in their own homes. You, two, are 5 star guests and we'll look forward to your return. Carolyn, Trevor, Sydney, Mr. Gloria

My wife and I just left Poinciana Place this past Saturday after staying there for a week. We could not be more thrilled with Poinciana Place. You are 1 1/2 blocks from Duval street. so you get the peace and quiet, while being close to the "action". Bruce is a great host and will give you 5 star treatment. It was everything we hoped for and then some! If you need a place to get away from it all for some serious R&R you have found it here. We look forward to coming back!!! Thank you Bruce for making this a very SPECIAL week.

First time in Key West

  • 5 of 5

We did plenty of research on vrbo and we eventually narrowed it down to Lazy Lanes Cottages. We wanted to spend our Twentieth wedding anniversary with little to no distractions like what you may encounter at a hotel. After contacting Carolyn and setting up the dates for our visit we were more than pleased with the accommodations! We arrived to find Bruce doing some minor straightening up and he gave us the run down on where to go and what to see. We throughly enjoyed Poinciana Place Tree Top... everything was just wonderful. The temperature was well into the triple digits but coming back home to a ice cold air conditioner certainly felt like heaven! The Jacuzzi was exhilarating and the cottage was just the right size... Cozy. We are already planning on next years visit!! We left a Thank You card for Bruce and Carolyn for allowing us to stay, experience, and enjoy paradise in their little island retreat! I highly recommend the cottages of Lazy Lane!

Wonderful Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Seashell Cottage. We stayed there for a week and everything was as promised. It was the perfect size for my boyfriend and myself and everything was clean and well stocked. The king size bed was very comfortable. We absolutely loved the outdoor shower, we didn't use the indoor one at all! And even though it was 100 degrees, we still loved and used the hot tub. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone and cannot wait until we can book it again. We flew into Key West airport and rented bikes for the week and I am so glad we did. The house is in such a great location, as it is close to mostly everything, especially by bike. Carolyn and Cindy were wonderful to work with. We will definitely be back!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Treetop Jasmine Suite for a week in April. We are dying to go back!

The location of this property is AMAZING. And even better, AFFORDABLE! There are tons of places around the island to stay, but you get everything you need here for a great price. You can walk anywhere if you bring the right shoes! Up and down Duval to Sunset, to Fort Zachary (this was our favorite beach), and to tons of restaurants and bars.

We flew into Miami Airport and drove down the length of the Keys to the cottage (about three hours). It's such a beautiful drive! When we arrived we realized we don't need a car so we returned it to the Key West Airport and rented bikes. Highly recommend renting a bike - it was an excellent way to explore the island and get around! Cabs are a quick phone call away to bring you elsewhere. Sidenote.. If you are doing the drive to/from Miami to Key West - definitely stop at Bahia Honda beach, it is truly beautiful (this was one of Dave the Inn Keeper's wonderful recommendations).

There is a nice covered balcony/entryway to the cottage where you can sit at the end of the night and enjoy some drinks. There is also a kitchen with everything you need (though, why cook when there are TONS of wonderful places to go out and eat?). The sitting room was nice, and everything in the suite was well appointed in general. We experienced that nice "hotel" feel. We were also able to stock up on beach towels and other necessities like suntan lotion at the Inn.

We loved it and can't wait to come back! Thanks Dave and Carolyn!

Definitely A Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I went last year to key west. I had never been. My friend had been numerous times and stayed in all different places in Key West. We were both in need of a little vacation time. I had spotted this place. What caught my attention was the private Jacuzzi, the affordable pricing and great reviews. Then, we contacted the place and Carolyn was extremely polite, informative and accommodating. We stayed on the top of The Poinciana Place. It was perfect for us! We really enjoyed and loved the entire stay! Bruce is very low key and nice. He came by to basically welcome us, answer any questions we had and make sure we had everything we needed. This was about a year ago and we cannot wait to return. My friend who has stayed so many times in all different places on the island was just as impressed as I with Lazy Lane Cottages. Also, the location is excellent; It's quiet, serene right where you stay but within a 5-10 minute walk/2-3 minute bike, you're near everything you could want. It even rained half the time and because of how comfortable the room was, it didn't hinder our stay at all. We were able to relax in the Jacuzzi and watch the rain pour down. The fact that the Jacuzzi is private puts it over the top, for me! I honestly could go on and on because my friend and I were so pleased with our stay at Poinciana Place. Unfortunately, this past year I became sick but am in recovery now and extremely thankful and fortunate. Now, I am able to go out, get in the water and walk again. Therefore, I cannot wait to book our trip this year and even more of a reason to celebrate being here and able to take such a nice trip. (Note: I am not certain if I have the exact date of arrival correct. It was either the date selected, Thursday, June 20 or the previous Thursday, June 13 that we arrived. I apologize for that.) It has been described as a hidden treasure, which is precisely what it truly is.
