Great space and location
"We're a couple that likes to spread out, and the cottage was perfect for our getaway. It is very spacious and exactly as pictured. The cottage was spotless on arrival and everything worked properly, including the A/C (and we like it cold). We only used the master bedroom on the second floor, but there is a nice guest bedroom on the first floor that would allow for larger groups or families. The owners were very easy to work with and we had no problems leading up to or during our stay.
The cottage is located a 15-20 minute drive from the airport and a 5-minute walk to Duval. You can easily walk to any place in old town in about 15 minutes or less. We also walked to the marina for our snorkeling excursion, which is also where you can get the ferry to Dry Tortugas National Park. We opted to take a sea plane there instead of the ferry (highly recommended); for that we needed to drive to the airport.
While the cottage is attached to a row of houses, as an end unit duplex it really feels like a stand alone, not an apartment. It has double height ceilings, giving it a very open and airy feeling, and the side and back windows look out to lovely tropical trees and plants. The front of the cottage is on a road that gets some traffic, including trucks, but the advantage is that you can sit on the porch and people watch, since it it the main road leading to the beach and a lot of people walk or bike there. Traffic noise was no problem at all. The same can't be said for the roosters, but that's a fact of life in Key West. They make sure you don't sleep too late, no matter how much partying you did the night before!
The complex has a decent sized, very clean pool a few steps from the back of the cottage, so you don't need to cross any roads to get to it. The pool furniture is not the most comfortable, just plain hard white plastic with no cushioning or webbing. Shade is limited at the pool, but when we were there it was too hot for us even in the shade so we didn't spend a lot of time there. The beach (Fort Zachery Taylor) is also a 10 minute walk. Make sure to wear water shoes, because the beach and ocean are very rocky.
All in all, the cottage is the perfect mix of size, amenities, and location. I highly recommend it for a visit to Key West."

"We were so fortunate to stay at this beautiful home last month with my family and a few friends. The home is decorated in a Key West style with wood floors and colorful decorations. Very, Very clean. The master Bedroom is HUGE and includes 3 separate decks for lounging. Each bedroom in the house has comfortable beds and separate outdoor decks or patio areas. The 4th bedroom is located in the LOVE SHACk righout outside the pool and is truly it's own little cabana with a full bathroom. The house is super clean and has EVERYTHING you would want or need. The Pool/Deck Area was truly our favorite spot. After biking the Island or Fishing or water sports, we spent most of our down time lounging in the pool area or eating outside in the evening.
Jeff, the owner was more than accommodating in every aspect. He answered any questions we had and made sure our stay was PERFECT. We will definitely be returning to this home.
Thank you Jeff!"
