Private Homes, Old Town cottage description

Just pack your shorts and sandals, your Jimmy Buffet CD's, pick up a Hemmingway book, and head for this fantastic 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom abode in the heart of Key West.

When you walk through the 15' high groomed hedge gateway you are in the front yard of this newly renovated (but steeped in old Key West style) cottage. The crystal clear pool is so inviting you won't want to leave the house, but you won't want to miss the beautiful beaches, the great restaurants, and the shopping (oh! the shopping) that are all nearby.

We are certain that once you spend a vacation at our Catherine Street cottage, it will be your vacation destination again, and again.

                        This house was simply excellent - well furnished, clean, WiFi, large TV, private swimming pool that we had heated and a large BBQ on the deck. All the bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen was modern and well equipped. The driveway allowed us to park our Dodge Grand Caravan off the road with space for the bikes that were hired. Around the corner is a small supermarket to purchase all the basics needed and the bonus of Sandy's Cafe (great Cuban coffee and sandwiches) plus Mo's Cafe. We were a group of 6 adults and found the house quiet and comfortable. We walked to Duval Street, about 15-20 minutes, and there were other restaurants recommended by Ron, the owner, on that route that were excellent. We did use the car to go to the beach where parking was free. There is plenty to do in Key West, Duval Street being the busy tourist street, but just wander off the side streets to find good value restaurants and bar / lounges. It's great for people watching and we found the locals welcoming. Ron was an excellent communicator. He quickly responded to emails and is very personable.

                        My husband and I stayed in this home with another couple beginning 11/02/2013. The four of us had a fabulous time and loved everything about this property. We selected it based on its location, the on-line pictures, the descriptions of its pool, furnishings, beds/baths, kitchen, accessible parking and television and internet amenities, as well as the excellent customer service recommendations shared in various reviews for the owner Ron. Nothing disappointed us and we could not have been more pleased. It offers a very private, heated pool surrounded by beautiful landscape lighting. When we were not sitting on the (brand new) pool deck, we were situated inside on the beautiful hardwood floors watching a movie on a big screen TV equipped with an excellent sound system. I had to work a bit while on vacation, and the wireless internet worked flawlessly. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and very comfortable. And although we enjoyed dining in downtown Key West we also cooked a few meals at the house and the kitchen was perfectly stocked. During the day we rode our bikes into town (Duval) and it was an easy 1.5 mile ride. In the evenings, we opted for a cab for a small fee of $4/per person. The unusually long and private drive enabled us to lock our bikes at night behind the privacy gate, and there was plenty of room for our 2 cars too. The neighborhood was quiet and provided easy access to the famous Key West Cuban coffeehouses. We're fans of staying in VRBO properties, (especially since our friends and couple who traveled with us are VRBO owners). It's important to feel confident about the service you'll receive from the property owner as well as ready access. I can't say enough positive things about Ron, the owner: A+ across the board. We can't wait to return.

                        Recommended for: Girls getaway, age 55+, sightseeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

                        First, we just have to say that Ron is a pleasure to work with. We had all of our questions answered and our reservation booked within the first hour of contacting him. He was very friendly and accommodating. Overall we have to say that this house is amazing! We drove to Key West and were very happy to have the off-street parking spot. Key West is, of course, incredible, but the best part of our trip was this house – it is beautiful, well appointed, peaceful, and the pool is the icing on the cake. After about 20 seconds after our arrival, we were already talking about coming back. The location of the house was perfect. We could walk to the beach (Higgs) without a problem. We also walked to Duval and the cemetery. If you rent bikes, you can get anywhere you need within minutes. We really enjoyed having several dining options and a little grocery store right around the corner too. It was so great to be able to just walk across the street and have some of the most amazing Cuban coffee available anytime! We drove around and looked at some of the other places we considered renting, and were so glad that we chose this house. It was truly the best option. It’s quiet yet close to everything. Staying here made us feel more like locals than tourists and we just felt so at home. Words can’t describe our amazing experience. Everything was perfect. We wish we were there right now and we can’t wait to go back.

                        Positives first The booking was first class. The owner very helpfull The house inside is outstanding and now the issues. The pool deck is unsafe. My wife (120lb) went through the wood. Stairs from the master bathroom to the outside are broken. Overall the pool area needs to be repaired. We rented the house for the outside and ended up booking trips each day as it was not safe. The last two days we booked into a hotel so we had the pool we wanted. If the pool deck gets repaired, this is a great home.

                        Owner response: We take pride in our home. If a guest has any we request that they call us immediately so we can address it. I am disappointed that the guest did not call us about the deck issue. We have maintenance people available to make any repairs. The repairs have been addressed the same day as we received the review.

                        This house is perfect. Cutest house ever. It was immaculate when we arrived. High ceilings. Ceiling fans. Light and airy. Within walking distance of anything you might need - even to Duval Street (if you like to walk.) It was great having our own private swimming pool. Owner could not have been nicer to deal with. Would highly recommend this property. The house was perfect for a girl's get away vacation!

                        Still trying to get over the trip that was too short. The Catherine St. house is just like going home now. This house is perfect. Enough space for 4 adults and two high schoolers to spread out and have private space, while inviting and spacious enough to be all together and never once feel we were cramped. Walk over to Sandy's around the corner for the Cuban coffee and you will wonder what you have been drinking all your life. After your first visit they will just pour your cup when you return. Perfectly located to just everything. Go out - stay in - but you will NOT want to leave. I hate to give such a good review. Would prefer to keep this dollhouse a secret. Thanks again Ron!!!!

                        This is a fabulous holiday home which offers the best of home! The secluded property provides privacy, fabulous ammenities and a wonderful location. We appreciated this well maintained, immaculate property. The lush landscaping surounding the pool says swimsuits are optional. The electronics are tops and it has music throughout! The homes layout offers fantastic living space with the bedrooms, isolated from activities. We enjoyed the restaurants, ice cream options , groceries near by and the ease of proximity to clubs, dining, fishing and other activities. We are planning to book for two weeks shortly. Thank you Ron for the pleasure of introducing us to this home!

                        My wife and I save up to go on one very nice vacation each year. As a result we are very selective in finding the best value for our dollar. The house on Catherine Street in Key West exceeded our expectations. With it's bright, airy, beautifully furnished rooms and outstanding heated and very private pool it is indeed a wonderful place to stay when vacationing in Key West. The house is within walking distance or a short bike ride to the many attractions of the island but private enough to relax and enjoy after a day of shopping and sightseeing. We would definitly recommend this property and have already made reservations for next year.

                        The house is wonderful. The master bedroom is quite spacious with its own large bathroom. A second bedroom has french doors that open directly onto the pool deck. A third smaller bedroom with two twin beds is perfect for kids. The house is beautifully designed, with a large open living area, dining room and kitchen (also with french doors to the pool deck). High ceilings and lots of windows give the house a light and airy feel. The property is beautifully landscaped and very nicely furnished, with just about everything you'll need to feel right at home. And you just can't beat having your own private pool. The only problem is that you won't want to leave.

                        From the time we walked in we were captivated by the Catherine St house in Key West! The decor is pleasing and the layout was perfect for our family of four adults and two teenagers. Convenient to shopping, food and goodies. The Key Lime pie around the corner is amazing! We plugged in our iPods to hear music throughout the house and pool deck - which we used constantly! Ron is great to work with and we have already booked for 2013.
