Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was completely accurate. The place was nicer than we thought it would be. The cleaning man was super!!!!Very clean!!. Two outdoor eating areas; with one on the street for great people watching! Close to the southernmost beach restaurant with the great fish tacos and Blue Heaven, our favorite restaurant. We are seniors and still easily walked up to Mallory Square , Hogsbreath, and all the great bars on the north end. We normally stay at Crown Plaza but this was much better! Highly recommend to anyone.

Cute little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A very nice place with a local location to all attractions. The house was clean and the "towel man" kept us well stocked. It was perfect for our needs. We were concerned about parking but were lucky to park right in from of the house. Needless to say we didn't move the car while we were there but didn't need to. I would highly recommend the cottage and love to rent it again when we get back to Key West!

Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location for walking around Duval Street! The "towel man" was friendly, delivering fresh towels daily. Parking was available on the street in front, we had 3 motorcycles and had no problem. Michael was great with all the information provided! Showers were great. The house was clean. It was perfect for our needs. The other rental units are close and provided an opportunity to great other visitors.

Perfectly met our vacation needs.

  • 4 of 5

Our business team, four fellas, enjoyed this as our "base of operations" for a fun retreat in Key West. Convenient kitchen facility and two bathrooms served us well. The location was great, easy walking distance to anything we could do in Old Town.

Location, location, location,

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for our family's short trip to Key West. It was so convenient to Duval Street and surrounding Old Key West. There was a bicycle rental right around the corner, which worked out great as we just parked our car and walked or biked where we wanted to go. The house was as described, was very clean, and gave us all the room we needed. Michael responded very quickly to a couple of questions we had, and provided solutions which worked out well.
