  • California to Key West

    "My family had a wonderful time at Ellen's Retreat in Key West. It is located in a quiet area centrally located to everything. The lushly landscaped back yard with a large deck and pool were perfect for relaxing and dining al fresco. This home is beautifully decorated with all of the amenities of home. The living area had plenty of seating for guests to watch tv in one area and read a book in another. The photos on the website are great but it is even better in person. We will definitely stay at Ellen's Retreat the next time we visit Key West."

  • Great Stay, Nice Place, Nice Vacation

    "My financee and I and 2 other couples stayed here and it was fantastic. First the place was immaculate and clean and had that Hemingway style. It was close to everything including Duval Street. It had every amenity possible. The private swimming pool was delightful as we sipped wine deciding where to go and what to. The oldest owner Ron was very helpful with ideas and very easy to work with. My finanncee and I aree thinking about changing our date, having the wedding down here and staying here. What a place!"

  • Key West Wedding

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Overall we had a great stay. We rented the house for our wedding so the family could stay with us. The pool side cottage is seperate from the house so it was perfect to have our own space. The landscaping was amazing! It had everything that we needed. We had a few mantaince issues, electrical, dishwasher, and all the locks stick. The house was scheduled for a 2 week maintance period after we checked out so it should be great for the next guests. Perfect location and we couldn't ask for more!"

  • Fun for family reunion

    "I brought a group of 21 family members with ages from 8 - 80. It is a nice house in a great location. We were one short block from Duvall street and walking distance to many of the attractions - southernmost point, Hemmingway house, Fort Zachary state park and the marina near the Westin. The grocery store is just around the corner so we could carry everything and we did not need cars. The house is pretty and most of it has been renovated. The dishwasher did not work but they tried to fix it and then replace it but could not do it during the holidays. The management offered to send someone to wash dishes but we declined. The area can be a little noisy. We did not hear noise from the crowds as much as the roosters. (For some historical reason, Key West has roosters wandering the town. They like to announce morning starting at about 4 am.) We rented both the 7 bedroom and 4 bedroom 'attached' house. The 4 bedroom is newer and in better shape. Overall, we had a good time and the rental was good."
