  • Delightful Home Away From Home

    "My husband, adult daughter, and I enjoyed 5 days at the Mermaid House. It is a delightful, interesting, a bit quirky (but in a good way), quiet home, located within walking or short biking distance from pretty much everything on Key West. We were there for the Half Marathon weekend and had quite a few friends staying elsewhere on the island. The two-level back deck was perfect for a small get together BBQ - fresh tuna on the grill from the Eaton Fish Market, which was a 5 minute bike ride. Barbara (owner) has stocked her home with just about everything, and a welcoming sign that says, "Feel free to use whatever you need." This is so nice, especially when one wants to cook and needs spices, olive oil, etc. My daughter fell in love with the back yard hammock. Every evening, she parked there and watched a movie. I fell in love with the front porch swing chair - every morning, I sat there with coffee and checked email. We all fell in love with the outdoor shower. Never used the indoor shower. Dave, the local manager, was accessible and helpful. And really nice! The Mermaid House was very comfortable for 3 people. We'd go back in a heartbeat. Thanks, Barbara!"

  • Wonderful home away from home

    "The home was actually as pictured. My family and I went down for the 4th of July weekend, and we were not disappointed. The location is perfect, about a half a block off Duval. The downstairs was spacious and comfortable. We loved the use of a full kitchen for quick meals. The upstairs rooms were super comfortable, and the perfect size for us. I would not hesitate to stay here again."

  • Month long stay December 2014

    "This was my 3rd attempt at visiting Key West. We finally had success. Last time is was there we rented on a key close to Key West. The day after we arrived my mother fell and broke her pelvis, we spent the 2 weeks we were there visiting her at the Key West Hospital. I do not recommend it. This time we stayed for a month. I loss my Iphone, but some nice person turned it into the sheriff's department, so i got it back. We really enjoyed out stay on Pourhouse Lane. it was an excursion to find it, but we finally got there. the rental company was very helpful, because we had a few electrical problems. Kevin was there immediately every time we called and repairs were made quickly. this is a very nice cottage, close to Duval Street and not a tough walk to the beach or marina (we both are senior citizens). We ate out about 3 times a week and most restaurants were fantastic. I recommend the 6 Toed Cat for Key Lime Pie and Lobster Benedict. Other restaurants for dinner: Cafe Marquesa, Nine One Five, Martin's, Cafe Sole, and Seven Fishes (which is just down the street a short walk). This property was lovely. We spent our afternoons in the backyard by and in the pool. Parking could have been a problem, but if you found a spot and did not move your car on the week-end it was no problem.We went to the Publx's grocery store on Wednesday for Thursday with the car and walked every where else. I brought my sweet little kitty with me and other then getting use to the airplanes that flew in and out directly over head(she's a country cat) she did great. We would really consider coming back to Pourhouse Lane if we visit Key West again. Thanks Soren and Irene"

  • Great Rental

    "Beautiful apartment in a great area of Key West. Except for the oppressive heat, this would have been a perfect vacation. The accomodations were excellent. A really beautiful apartment with bright colors and high end finishes. The owner even has his own artwork on the walls available for purchase. Highly recommended!"
