Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely decorated. Great bed. The art work is amazing. Love the floors. Very clean. Will definitely book again. Close to Southernmost Point, Hemmingway's Home, Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. Everything was in walking distance. Which is a good thing because once you find a parking space (which is an adventure in itself) do not move your car. Do not park in a space that has writing in it. Because even though you cannot read the writing it actually says "Residential Parking". Do not park there.

Perfect apartment for Key West vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights while attending a friend's wedding. The apartment was exactly what we were hoping for! The location was very convenient, and the apartment itself was spotless, spacious with beautiful high ceilings, and very well equipped. It really made our stay in Key West incredibly comfortable and easy. We would definitely recommend this place and would absolutely stay here again if we get to make another trip back to Key West!!

Perfect Location, somewhat noisy

  • 4 of 5

This condo was in the absolute perfect location. Steps from Duval Street, but away from the noisy bars. It was always a great place to come home to after a long day. Couldn't have asked for a better location. The condo was decorated beautifully, very modern and clean, nice kitchen, and working AC units. Nice, large shower, big enough for two. However, it only had one shower head.

The biggest qualm I had with this place is the indoor noise. Since it's on the bottom floor, you can hear footsteps and creaky floors above you almost constantly. It was annoying, but manageable if I slept with earplugs. Also, you could hear voices coming from the condo next door. The walls are very thin. In addition, the AC unit in the bedroom would spew out small black particles, which had to be vacuumed up every other day or so (thankfully, a vacuum is supplied). An extra blanket or two for the bed would also be nice.

All in all, this was a great property. One I might stay in again, if given the chance. Probably not for any more than a week, however. The indoor noise was a killer for me. However, the location really couldn't be beat.

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Some aspects of this rental are fine - location is convenient, new looking floors and kitchen area however the negatives outweigh the positives. The musty smell permeated our clothes and souvenirs. The building was under repair the entire time. Efforts to get door lock repaired (and be able to secure the unit!) were not acted on. Would not recommend.

Owner's Response: We are sorry for all the inconveniences. We have never had issues with musty smells as you can see by all our previous reviews, but we did find that the window was not totally shut which was closed (& and it rained for nearly 2 weeks) and the a/c remote controls were in the wrong mode settings on the new Mitchibishi a/c units. Per the City, the building must be maintained and updated. They were replacing handrails so our guests are safe. The door lock was checked by our property manager and did work however, we did replace it. Once again, we are sorry for the inconvenience and if we would have been told about the musty smells, we would have had our property manager check it out.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the most comfortable stay possible. Place is clean, well stocked with all the needs you could think of, the doggie loved it and behaved so well because within the first night she thought she was home. Great condition, and could not beat location, close to everything but away from the noise. Next year again for sure!
