  • Key West 1st visit

    "There were 6 adults. It was a very clean and served our purpose for 3 days? Yes I would return to the Cubian. WiFi did not work. Called and instantly received a call back. Right on Duval Street. Unit upstairs and huge front deck. Would return again! Highly recommend!🌴☀️"

  • Loved the Privacy

    "Celebrating our 30th anniversary, we wanted a quiet, private and romantic getaway. This studio was perfect. Enjoyed our coffee every morning with a beautiful view of the beach and palm trees. Close enough to the action that everything was easy to get to. Holly had great suggestions about where (and where not) to eat and things to do. Felt kind of special driving down our private sandy lane and so glad not to have to hassle with on-street parking. Suite had every kitchen convenience we could have wanted. Try the upstairs 'tapas' next door at Louie's Backyard.Be sure to get there right at 5:00 and you will be rewarded with a charming table for two in a window/balcony overlooking the water. Magical."

  • Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus

    "If this property is available and you are reading this review, book it. It was amazing. It is impossible to explain the tranquility you will feel in this oasis. Heaven on Earth. You can't help but feel peace in your heart and soul. From the moment you open the gate, you know that this is going to be a great place to stay. For those of you who want a clean property, this is it. It was spotless. The bamboo floors are pleasing to your bare feet. The kitchen has a toaster, glasses, plates, pots, pans, anything you need. I don't drink coffee, but there was a coffee maker as well. It has a large refrigerator as well. The bed is queen size, and very comfortable. No aches and pains. The air conditioner worked marvelously in 90 degree weather. Location was great, no more than a 10 minutes bike ride to anywhere we wanted to go. We did many activities during our stay; jet skis, para sailing, snorkeling, paddle boards, sight seeing and of course eating. We loved the Floating Thai restaurant, the Schooner wharf for shrimp cocktail and mussels during happy hour, Siboney's cuban restaurant, Blue Heavan for breakfast with the roosters and Off the Hook for a fabulous fish sandwich. There are lots of little bistros that we stopped at to have a taste at each place. Every place we went pleased our palates. Bicycles were our mode of transportation, and allowed us to eat, drink and be merry, and not put on a single pound. Well actually my husband gained 2 and I gained 1. The best part of our entire stay was having our private oasis to return to each day/night and taking a shower or two every day in the outdoor shower. I am hoping that my husband will build me one of my own. The owners of this property were kind and helpful from the very beginning and even brought us a cooler to use at the beach. Enjoy your stay at this amazing property."

  • Great Location - Comfortable with Key West Character & Charm!

    "Our family of four (kids ages 12 & 14) stayed in the Caribbean suite 3 nights over Super Bowl weekend. We prefer VRBO properties over hotels. I searched many listings before finding this place. Similar listings did not allow guests under 18, nor offer a pool and were higher priced. The location is great – only a few blocks from Duval on a quiet street and a 20-minute walk to Mallory Square. No problem finding parking on the same street block. The pool was heated and the brick courtyard had lounge chairs, sunny and shady spots to sit, and a fountain that provided a relaxing background sound. There are 7-8 individual (condo-like) properties within the Hollinsed House complex. The Caribbean suite has a nice outdoor space with the private front porch. The interior is a good size with a comfortable living area and bedrooms with drawer space. The furnishings and accessories are a bit eclectic but the home was clean and well stocked with plenty of towels for the bathroom and pool, toilet paper, and paper towels. The kitchen is small but recently updated and functional. The bathroom is also small and could stand to be updated but overall, it was functional and clean (though the grout in the bathroom tile shower could be cleaner.) If you need to do laundry, you can use the shared washer/dryer for a nominal fee after the housekeeper is finished for the day. Wi-fi worked great. Our only complaint was the small 20-inch TV in the LR. We didn’t want to drag the boys out to a bar to watch the Super Bowl so we had to watch the game on this TV. Not the best for my fanatical football fans! With flat screen TVs so inexpensive these days, the owner really should spend a few hundred dollars to upgrade. The property manager, Tracey, was very friendly, responsive, and easy to work with – we spoke by phone and email and she answered all of my questions. Check-in was easy and exactly as described. I called her on our departure day to let her know about a couple of minor repair items along with our suggestion to upgrade the TV. She was very receptive and appreciative of the info. Additionally, the housekeeper, Ruth, is very nice and helpful. Overall, this place is a great find if you are looking for: a convenient and quiet location; old Key West charm and character; and comfortable/clean accommodations with a pool. If you prefer everything new and modern with designer décor, stay at a fancy hotel and pay a lot more. We hope to get back to KW and stay here again. Thanks Tracey!"
