Perfect Place in Key West
Perfect Place in Key West
My husband and I have just returned from our first visit to Key West. So much fun! Our stay was particularly perfect because of our ideal accommodations. We spent a week in Poinciana Place (upstairs) and could not have asked for a more comfortable arrangement in a more ideal location. Carolyn and Bruce made our arrangements and arrival carefree. The cottage is convenient for walking in every direction but on a quiet lane without noise and foot traffic. Every consideration for a comfortable stay has been made. We loved relaxing in the jacuzzi after a day of walking, snorkeling, kayaking, and shopping. Every review here is right on target. There is no need to look around - Any of the Lazy Lane accommodations will be right for your Key West stay. Thank you, Carolyn and Bruce.

Owner response: Thank you for your thoughtful review. We're pleased that your stay at Poinciana Place was pleasant and met your expectations, making your first visit to Key West an enjoyable experience. I enjoyed meeting you and we hope you will return. Carolyn Baker
We loved our week stay at the Seashell Cottage. Everything, from booking to check out, went very smooth. Communications with Carolyn and Wendi are fantastic! The cottage is adorable, homey, clean, and has a very spacious feel. Every amenity has been considered and provided for. The outside shower is the best! The king bed is very comfortable. We actually looked forward to returning to our cottage just for that needed downtime! It's a wonderful thing to climb into the Jacuzzi to relax and soothe tired legs and feet after a day of walking. The location is perfect. We were able to pack less clothes due to the washer/dryer provided, and towels supplied are nice quality and plentiful. Thanks bunches to Carolyn and Wendi for providing such a wonderful experience! We look forward to our next stay at Seashell!

“Location is what Key West is all about” 5 of 5 starsReviewed 2 days ago NEW Just one block from all the action, in a quiet, secluded alley (most streets are alleys in this town) with local cats as your security, lies one of the secrets of Key West. A hidden treasure, this accommodation provides a nice kitchen, living room and bedroom with a comfortable king bed to rest your feet after a day of doing all the things the town has to offer. A hot tub greets you when you come home to take the edge off of your tired feet, and the a/c cools the apartment quickly to make sure you do not overheat for the evening. All necessary accouterments are provided before you arrive, which makes you want to keep the place stocked when you leave. It's a great time. This is our second time with Lazy Lane cottages, staying at Jasmine house the first time. I have only great things to say about both properties. Room Tip: We were on the first floor, it was great.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago This was our first time visiting Key West, and we did a lot of research on where to stay. We ultimately made the decision to rent the Treetop unit because the price was comparable, if not better, to any moderately prices hotels in the area. The booking process is made easily with Carolyn, who was a dream to work with and meet during our stay. And the owner Bruce is a genuinely nice guy who gave us a lot of great info on the island, along with suggestions on places to visit. The accomodations are pretty simple, but with plenty of room for 2-3 people. We were able to make breakfast nearly every morning; lunch and snacks were also purchased from the local grocer, which keeps the price down because Key West is expensive enough without going out for every meal! Location was awesome too; so close to Duval and the historic cemetery, a close trip by bike (or walk!) to the wharf and Mallory Square, etc. Spacious king size bed, outdoor sitting area(s) with jacuzzi tub, cable TV, bike racks, friendly neighbor kitty, etc. make this a home away from hom. Plus two window AC units were great for us cold blooded Wisconsinites! I would recommend this rental to any person who prefers not to live in a hotel box during their stay. So much more freedom without the hassle of a hotel stay. Thank you Bruce and Carolyn for the help, we will stay again when we come back! Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

Wonderful, hidden gem!!
Wonderful, hidden gem!!
Living in Florida, making an annual Keys trip for the past 15 years. I've stayed at many places throughout Key West. This year my girlfriend and I made the trek from Tampa. The Seashell Cottage has, by far been the best accommodations at a reasonable price. Carolyn was a pleasure to deal with on the business end and Wendi was very attentive to our needs once there. Upon our arrival, there was everything from a wonderful welcome note to fresh flowers in the kitchen. Everything was super clean and much appreciated. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we could ask for, and the spa was perfect after a long day walking, exploring the island. The hammock was a perfect place to enjoy a scotch after dinner and let the world go by. The outdoor shower was used often and is a must try for anyone who stays here. This will definitely be a regular stay on trips to Key West... Thank you Carolyn and Wendi!! It was PERFECT!!

Owner response: Your enthusiasm and review is so appreciated! The outside shower is definitely a must! Nothing like it as far as shower ambiance. Wendi and I will look forward to your return. Warm regards Carolyn
This was our first trip to Key West and definitely not our last. It was also our first VRBO experience and we had a fabulous time. We stayed at Poinciana Place. Bruce met us there and was very helpful in telling us where we could get fresh fish and various other places. He came by everyday to check the outside and replace our beach towels. The place was clean and well kept. The outside area was well maintained. We used the grill almost everyday. The pictures don't do it justice. The location is perfect. Once we arrived, we parked our car and walked everywhere. It's close enough to Duval St. and other tourist attractions but still quiet and peaceful.

There's no place like seashell cottage!!!
There's no place like seashell cottage!!! Left on 06/01/2013 for a stay in May 2013 If I were reading reviews for possible rentals,I would look for reviews of return visitors. That is just what this is. May 2013,my husband and I made our fifth week long return visit, and have made our reservations for two weeks in May 2014. We return every year,and have never had any problems or concerns. We have been coming to Key West for the past 15 years. Since finding Seashell Cottage,we don't even consider staying anywhere else. It is amazing in a few minutes you can walk the short distance to the main street(Duval Street) and be in the middle of all the Key West activities. Or-you can sit on the front porch in the swing and be greeted by friendly neighbors(most of whom are permanent residence); or,you can enjoy the hammock or hot tub on the back deck and be in your own secluded paradise surrounded by lush foliage and privacy fencing. There is only a couple of things I can add to the other reviews. How wonderful it is to have off street parking. Not available at most accomadations in Key West. Park right beside your front door,and be within walking distance to most anything you want to do.Free parking in Key West is pretty much nonexistent. And, the safety of the location. We enjoy walking,and have never once felt unsafe anytime of the day or night. We have been known to leave the cottage at midnight and walk through the surrounding neighborhoods to Sandy's Cafe on White Street to get Cuban sandwiches and coffee. Carolyn and Wendi will do anything in their power to make your stay a pleasant and relaxing vacation. Because of them, all you have to do is pack your clothes and come to the Cottage. They take care of all the details right down to the fresh cut flowers on the kitchen table. I guess I need to mention,we have had one problem. The last couple of days are spent being depressed that our visit is almost over. We are never ready to leave. I could go on and on, but I think by now you get the message --we love seashell cottage!!!

Excellent Choice to stay
Excellent Choice to stay
We stayed here for one week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Bruce was there within 15 minutes of our arrival and stayed until all of our questions were answered and came back every day to check everything and clean the outside.. The back deck is a great place to hang out and enjoy a nice breakfast, lunch or dinner. The Hot Tub is also a nice touch and felt real good after coming home late at night. The inside was clean and very well decorated. It has everything you need to have an enjoyable week (or more) when in Key West. Finally, the location is excellent, very short walk to Duval Street and all the fun things to do. While we took our bikes with us, everything is so close, you can walk to practically everything.

KeyWest at it's Best
KeyWest at it's Best
My husband and I arrived at Jasmine House around 7:00 p.m. and it was just as described. Clean, comfortable and quiet! We had to only walk 1 block to reach Duvall Street for all of the action... The accommodations were just as expected and we could not have asked for anything more. We enjoyed our trip so much that we will probably return some time next year. We were very lucky with the weather as it was in the high 70'sand low 80's every day with about 5 rains drops one evening. We visited many attractions while there and never went to the same restaurant twice, as there are so many to try. Every one was Great! My husband and I enjoyed the sunsets from different locations with a drink in our hand. THANKS!

Seashell Cottage-Everything and more.
Pictures do not do this home justice. It’s location is excellent having an approximate 10 minute walk to either end of Duval while still being on the smallest, quiet lane possible. My wife and I were extremely pleased in dealing with both the owner, and representative Wendi. Most of our time was spent in the rear of the home enjoying the hot tube, hammock, outdoor shower, and patio area. The kitchen was fully stocked; however, with all the restaurant choices in the area, it’s hard to actually cook home. We highly recommend this property for anyone who wants to get away, but still likes the ability to quickly find themselves in the heart of Key West. Thanks for letting us enjoy your little slice of paradise.
