Comfy, well-appointed, good location
This was a beautiful place. The location was great for what we needed--peaceful--even though, as another reviewer mentioned, the Overseas Highway was only a few hundred yards away. Face it, that road is the lifeblood of the Keys; you're going to hear and/or see it pretty much anywhere you stay, and it shouldn't be frowned upon. The noise wasn't bad; in fact, we found it like white noise, peaceful in its own way. The unit was well-decorated and well-appointed, although I would suggest upgrading the cook pans. Being in the Keys, of course you have to be prepared to climb steps to reach the first floor. If you're not expecting that you might be disappointed, so this is just a reminder. This is an end unit, so there was a clear view of the channel. The pool was lovely but not heated, FYI. There's a giant outdoor chessboard at the clubhouse for those interested. And there's a local restaurant and bar with live music right next door if you don't feel like cooking or driving. We drove to Key West each day, and it took about 35 minutes, more or less, depending on traffic. ** Kudos to the host: my daughter left her diamond stud earrings in the unit. The housekeeping staff found them and turned them in to the host, who then overnighted them (with extra insurance) to her, at his expense. We were very impressed with the host, the unit, and the overall experience.
Water view with traffic noise
The positives: Very well furnished and decorated with great water views and only 30 minutes to downtown Key West. Nice little pool and close to restaurants and Bahia Honda State park.
The Negatives: Very loud traffic noise as Rte 1 is 600 yards away from balcony. It took the joy away from sitting outside looking at the water. There is almost no water pressure is the showers on the second floor. With 3 woman in our group this was a constant complaint and everyone washed their hair in the kitchen sink it was so bad. Maintenance and upkeep were sorely lacking. TV remotes had no batteries, no trash can liners when we arrived, ceiling fan in master broken, and no soap in bathrooms. I expect to provide my own supplies but just one bar of soap and an initial trash can liner when you walk in would be nice. For the daily rate spent I expect these things would be mandatory. To be fair to the owners I did not report these as we did not want maintenance people in our condo while we were gone due to valuables and no safe. I am sure they could have resolved all of these, again I just expect all of this kind of things to be working/present.
The water views are spectacular and the town homes are all beautifully newly decorated and furnished. Yes, if you reported these missed items when you checked in or at any time during your stay they could of all been taken care of easily and immediately when you arrived by the on site maintenance staff while you were inside the town home. So sorry for your inconvenience, we will make it up to you when you return.
Beautiful condo outside the bustle of Key West
We had a wonderful week away at Christmas! We loved the multiple balconies, full kitchen, separate bedroom & bathroom for the kids, beach towels, access to kayaks, and Kiki's bar/grill next door (delicious). Key West was crazy crowded that week, so it was nice to stay outside of the chaos. We would recommend this charming place to anyone who asks! I would add that the cable is basic cable, so if you are looking for more channels (we were looking for Christmas movies), you'll need to bring an Apple TV or Amazon firestick.
Perfect in every way
The arrangement of the home was perfect for our needs. My husband and I had the lovely master suite and our sister and friend had the room with twin beds. Having the extra quarter bath was helpful. The kitchen was easy for three people to work in at same time. Furniture and beds were comfortable. An extra hair dryer would have been helpful and although the dresser in the closet if the twin guest bedroom would be useful for some the ladies would have liked more space to hang clothes. We would have liked a a guide sheet available for connecting to the internet but. My husband found it on the modem. These are minor suggestions. Loved it.!
So happy you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your suggestion. Please come back and stay with us again.
Amazing accomodations! Clean, perfect location, peaceful and the pool was perfect!! Close enough to Key West to enjoy the sights and resturants but in a peaceful and quiet location to enjoy the views of the water, float in the pool and walk to the tiki bar/ resturant. My first time to the Keys and will definitely return. Joe was amazing and took care of everything- Thank You!!!
