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."

"My husband and I were fortunate this winter to spend ten days at Southernmost Studio. I found our 5 Star Studio on VRBO. I was hoping that the studio would be as nice as described but it was better than either one of us ever anticipated. We were afraid that being a studio it would be rather small. However, it was very spacious. We were within close walking distance of many restaurants on Duvall Street and the surrounding area yet our neighborhood was very quiet. Our patio was directly on the beach and every evening we would sit and have a glass of wine as the sun set. At night we could fall asleep listening to the waves..Bicycles were available that we rode daily around the island. It was so nice we are planning on returning next year."

"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."

"It was our first trip to Key West so we took a chance with only reviews to go on and they definitely did not disappoint! Apartment was exactly as described and photos did not mislead even a little. Exceptionally clean and well maintained. The owners are great interior designers who obviously take pride in their properties. Very comfortable and well equipped - they've truly thought of everything. Tons of space with a decent closet for hang up stuffs. Kitchen was wonderfully equipped to eat in or eat out. Location was PERFECT. Steps away from Duval Street on the more quiet / family friendly end of town. We walked everywhere - nothing is too far. However, eventually our ambitions caught up with us and luckily there are rental places (bicycles, mopeds, and golf carts) very close in either direction. WiFi is weak but we weren't there to work and our phones received decent signals. First floor apartment has only two steps in addition to a handicap accessible ramp to enter the property in case this is a consideration for others. As well, the shower has a low step/walk in which had enough room for a portable bench if needed."
