Recent Key West reviews
"We are repeat renters because of the many positives this property offers. Ferntree is a charming , comfortable Old Town cottage, ideally located within walking distance of all Key West has to offer - from the convenience of just 3 short blocks to a local grocery to just a few blocks to Duval Street. Ferntree is also just a 3 block walk to great places to eat from casual to formal - Sandy's, El Siboney's, and Flaming Buoy. All this convenience, yet in a quiet, friendly residential neighborhood, with the added convenience of off-street parking. The property is also an absolute winner in terms of space, both indoors and out. There is a lovely vaulted great room with floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides that bring the outdoors in. There is also ample storage space, ideal for a month-long rental property. But outdoors is where we spend almost all our time. A spacious covered deck is ideal for dining and just hanging out. The pool with waterfall is both refreshing and relaxing. And there is plenty of additional outdoor space for barbecuing, dining, and lounging to accommodate even a large group. If you are looking for a comfortable, livable 'home away from home' where you can relax and really feel like you're living the island life, this cottage is a great fit.

"My Family of four stayed for 5 nights in Key West. The location of this condo was perfect. Extremely close to the beach, easy access to downtown and all the attractions, and was a great home base for our stay. It was nice to have private covered parking and the condo was very spacious and modern. I was very pleased to find a great pool area as well for the end of the day to unwind. Thank you for a memorable vacation."

"Staying in Key West can be extremely expensive. My boyfriend and I simply wanted a cute, clean, convenient place to stay a weekend. This is perfect. Within walking distance to Duvall, cute neighborhood, definitely within a budget price range. It is small but nobody goes to Key West to sit in their hotel room anyway. AC worked well, bed was comfortable, and other guests in the building were quiet and respectful. Street parking was easily found within a 1 block radius. The shower IS poorly designed as noted in other reviews; taking a shower will leave a couple centimeters of standing water in your bathroom. However, this is Florida and I'd say that's pretty much par for the course. I would absolutely stay here again the next time I take a trip to the Keys. The only thing that did not go as smoothly as I would have liked was the actual process of booking and then getting my security deposit back. Once I paid for the condo, it took two weeks and several emails to get a booking confirmation. I didn't actually get a booking confirmation until 3 days before my arrival, despite my payment having cleared 2 weeks earlier. After my stay, it took 2 weeks (and more emails) to get my security deposit sent out and an additional 2 weeks to receive it (they send a check automatically to whatever address you put on the rental agreement). This is the only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5. HOWEVER, the people you deal with are extremely friendly and helpful and respond to your emails promptly. Good customer service."

"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."
