In 2011, my husband and I stayed at this rental and it was fabulous. The location was incredible, and the place was charming. Charles was always around and making sure we didn't need anything. This time around things were completely different. The manager emailed us our access code, it was wrong. We called and she told us we weren't supposed to be there til the 22nd. We told her no, we were booked from the 21-28. She then gave us a different access code and told us we were supposed to call her when we got in. Again this was not in our email. However, we got in and started our vacation. I understand we are in the tropics, but there were sugar ants crawling on the counter. We decided not to make a big deal about it. The Shower though clean, is showing wear and tear as well as the cabinets. Again, not a big deal. Friday night became the big deal. Our unit was broken into (oddly enough with no signs of forced entry) and much of our stuff was stolen including our cell phones. We called 911 from a neighboring units cell as the unit phone had no dial tone. The officers were efficient and they fingerprinted several things including a cabinet that had been busted open. After finishing, we didn't feel comfortable staying so we left our vacation early. It is now almost 1 am. We packed up and drove home. FInally after getting a cell phone, (around noon on Saturday) we called the manager back...Not only didn't she apologize and ask if we were ok, she proceded to blame us for everything and demanded to know why we didn't call her immediately. We had no phones, she asked why we didn't use the one in the unit. We told her it was broken. She demanded to know what the burn marks were. That would be the fingerprint dust. She then said she didn't like renting to "the drunks of fantasy fest", we were stone cold sober. I will never ever stay at the Hollinsed House and discourage anyone else from staying there.

Manager response: As the manager of this unit I am going to start addressing these complaints from the beginning. Charles was always around. He passed aways from a massive coronary just two months afters these guests first stayed with us. Ruth our current housekeeper is very, very attentive to the guests and we have been blessed to have found her! These guests were mailed an access code when they made their reservation and told to call a few days prior to arrival to make sure it had not been changed. It had been changed and they were given the new code, that DID work. Sugar ants? Why was I, or the housekeeper not notified? I was not notified of the break-in, nor was my housekeeper Ruth, nor my assistant manager, Lois until another guest told Ruth on Saturday, after these guests had left. The phone in the unit does work, and it did work on Saturday morning when my housekeeper checked it. When the guests finally called me I apologized for what happened, asked if they were ok and DID ask if there had been a fire because it looked as though there was ashes on the kitchen counter and the closet doors. Ruth, the housekeeper had been unable to scrub it off. The guests then told me it was fingerprint powder residue. I did tell the guests that the Key West Police Department had told me that there were no break-in marks and were unsure what had happened. People had been around the pool at the time the guests were out and the break-in happened and had not seen anyone enter the unit. The comment about drunks is WAY OFF base. What I actually said is: "I personally wish I did not have to keep the Hollinsed House open during Fantasy Fest because there are too many drunks wandering the streets causing too many problems, this is why I only book repeat guests like yourselves." How they construed that to be that I called them drunks, is beyond me! I am sorry this happened to these guests, but in 5 years of personally managing 6 units at the Hollinsed House this is the first time this has happened. I pride myself on the clientele that stay at the Hollinsed House and the fact that we DON'T have problems like some of the guest houses seem to. I am already booked for next Fantasy Fest by repeat guests or friends of repeat guests. I truly am sorry for what happened while these guests were staying at the Hollinsed House but wish I had been contacted at the time. As I have said in other reviews, it is always hard for me to address some issues after the fact.

First time in KW. We plan on returning next winter and stay in the Shangrila Suite. It was nice having our own private tropical garden and 15 steps away through a picket privacy gate to the pool, larger garden and patio. We were looking forward to meeting Charles but we understood he is no longer with us. Robert, the new guy was great as was the cleaning staff. What a great location - close to everything and reasonably priced. Having a good grill was a plus. Fired it up two nights to grill shrimp and steaks and dine under the arbor.

Manager response: I am so glad that your first time in Key West was at the Hollinsed House and that you had such a good time. And that you will be back! It was with great sadness that we lost Charles to a heart attack at Christmas time 2011! We went through several housekeepers before we found Ruth and couldn't be more pleased. Robert our new gardener is doing a great job! We can't wait to see you back next year. I am already booked for February so call me soon for next March............

My husband and I stayed in this suite for our 25th anniversary , it was very nice and clean . Very quiet which we really liked ,but also very close to Duval St. which was a plus . We callled to see if we could get suite a day early and it was available. Tracey was very nice and helpful with all our needs . Charles was great, he was always checking with us to see if we needed anything and everything was o.k. This place was just as described and more courtyard / garden area was very nice and relaxing . We will definitely stay here again.

Our Honeymoon in Paradise
Our Honeymoon in Paradise
This was a very qaint unit. My Husband and I enjoyed having a private patio to have dinner or lunch. We found the property to be in a perfect spot 2 blocks off of Duvall Street. It was convenient to walk most places on the island. We felt the unit itself needed a bit of updating compared to some of the other units on the property that have been updated, but I am sure the owner already knows this. Charles (the caretaker) was as wonderful as everyone said he was and we hope that he is there next year for our stay in the poolside suite. Yes, we loved the property and have booked another unit for next year, Yeah!

Manager response: Michele, Charles and I can't wait to see you back next year! You are right that the ShangriLa Suite has not been renovated (owner's choice) but as the manager I have done lots of upgrades (new bed, loveseat, dishes, etc). We are doing more as soon as "season" is over and we have a break in guests and have a few days in the unit. Make sure Charles gives you a tour next winter! Have a great year and see you next February. Tracey, the manager......
