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.

Good trip for all

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 3 nights with a group of 7, it was a little tight however it was a great time. If no one was sleeping on the pullout couch in the living room it would've had a more "open" feel. Micheal, who ran the property was very great when emailed and prompt. I will say the pull out couch was incredibly uncomfortable, that needs to be updated and thank goodness I was sleeping alone on it, cause I don't think it could handle two people (and I'm 26 so I have no real back issues), you could feel every metal spring. However good experience overall and good location in the heart of Key West!

For the price, it was extremely small, & difficult to comfortably fit 6 people for a weekend stay.

  • 2 of 5

The location of the property worked very well for us. The house however, was satisfactory. The front bedroom and second bedroom shared an adjoining door, making it awkward to get to the small living space or the kitchen without going outside and around to the back door. The 3 bedrooms comprised the majority of the living space, so it felt very congested when we were all in the property at one time. We wished that we had brought towels from home to use instead of the ones that were provided - they just didn't seem clean.

Great cottage in heart of Key West

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here when my cousin got married down the street at The Reach, and were very pleased. We had two couples so we were able to spread out, and I could see it still being fine with one more couple or kids. The house was immaculate and uncluttered. No frills though, which was fine for us. We loved having a full refrigerator and kitchen. We didn't cook, but had coffee in and drinks in the afternoon. We were able to walk almost anywhere we wanted to go. The caretakers were some of the nicest people we met, and we chatted with them any time they brought towels or dropped off things for the house. They made us feel welcome and helped us with insider tips on where to park, since it's a busy area. We tried several restaurants all over Key West but our absolute favorite was Deuce's Off The Hook grill, two blocks away. We ate there twice in three days and tried a third time but they were too full. Excellent seafood and really personable servers.

Cozy cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this quaint little cottage for 4 nights. There were five of us and it was perfect for our needs. It was a perfect location as it was off the busy part of Duvall street but close enough to walk to all the action.
