Overall we couldn't have been happier! Booking was a breeze, communication was quick and friendly, checking in and out was stress free, and the location was AMAZING! Your a quick walk to Duval but in a quaint quiet neighborhood. The porches we're great for relaxing along with the saltwater pool. The other guests were all friendly as well. Having fresh towels brought up to us was a plus with the July heat. The beds we're comfy, the property was clean and rather large for a 2br unit (carribean suite). We absolutely adored the property cat, she made us feel right at home!! We would definitely rent here again on our next trip!

What you need to know.

  • 4 of 5

Basics: We stayed at Hollinsed House for our first time. We stayed in unit 6 which was a one room suite with a king size bed. It has a small kitchenette and a small bathroom . This was a ground floor unit. We stayed during the Fantasy Fest.

No place is perfect so I will explain what we liked and what we thought were less than perfect.

What we liked:

The management was great and answered our text messages quickly. The location could not have been better. Within a 2 minute walk we were on Duval Street and right in the middle of all of the festivities. Once we had enough excitement, we could get back to our own room quickly where it was quiet and far enough away from the noise. The Courtyard area along with the pool was quaint and enjoyable. Our room accommodation you are more than adequate to meet our needs. We did not cook any meals so I cannot comment on the kitchen. The coffee pot work fine and we were within walking distance of a 3 dozen restaurants.

Less than perfect:

This particular property only had accommodatons for two cars for the entire property. Therefore majority of the guests would need to find their own off property parking. There is parking allowed on the street however being so close to Duvall, it was very difficult to find anything available. Our room was a ground floor unit. The building is an older wood-framed structure. Therefore the person walking around above you could easily be heard below. This was not a problem however I could see it being less than ideal for others. In the future I would probably request an upper floor. Our shower was very small. I could see a "large person" having problems fitting into it. While I am 6 foot 1, I only weigh 185lbs. I had no problem using the shower but it was small.

All in all we had a great time and I would certainly stay here again. I would also have no problems recommending this to friends and family. However I would only recommend this to those looking for a quieter environment. If you are looking for more of a spring break type party environment then I would not recommend this property.

I hope this helps.

Stayed in room #7. Management staff very accommodating with our inquiries and requests. Quiet and great outdoor space. Pool is small but heated. Charcoal grill available for use. Yes, I would recommend and come back again.

Quaint. Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in the Caribbean Suite. Loved every minute. Plenty of room. Clean. Suite had everything we needed. Afternoon pool swims in private pool were a perfect break in the afternoon. Thanks for the hospitality! This was a great break from winter weather.

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with another couple in the Caribbean Suite and loved it. Close to Duval Street and easy walking distance to most everything - never needed the car the whole week and able to park it in one of the two spaces available. Apartment was clean and ready to go. Loved having the deck to watch all the comings and goings in the neighborhood and visiting with other guests. The cat is friendly does her own little welcome routine every day. Pool, while not large, was wet and warm. Highly recommend for anybody wanting to visit Key West. Booking was easy and all questions answered promptly - couldn't ask for a better experience.

Great Location - Comfortable with Key West Character & Charm!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that Sandy and her family had a good time at the Hollinsed House. Personally I never think about TV's on vacation so her phone call to me was a bit of a surprise but after some thought I realized that my vacation habits are certainly not that of others. I have spoken to the owners and as room in the budget presents itself, the TV will be replaced. I am sure that my past and future sports' fanatics will be pleased! We hope to see you and your family back at the Hollinsed House some day.
