So what you think of when you think Key West

  • 5 of 5

Dan's place is truly charming. There were four adults and the place was more than adequate. Although we never used our car, there was a reserved spot that was very convenient. The pool is only steps away and we enjoyed it immensely. All the shops and restaurants were within a couple blocks and yet we were removed from everything in the evening. My most favorite thing though was the covered porch. So beautiful, relaxing and peaceful. Also want to say that we had a question and Dan responsed in minutes. We called the fellow in charge and he was informative, polite, friendly and most efficient. All four of us had a wonderful stay and highly recommend "The Couch Cottage."

Nice cottage near Duval Street

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely cottage in a great location. Everything was within walking distance, but the neighborhood is fairly quiet. The home had all of the amenities you could want and then some, making it a true home-away-from-home. It accommodated three of us very comfortably (me, my sister, and my brother). The upstairs master bedroom and bath were both very spacious with plenty of room for 2 middle-aged gals and their beauty products. The kitchen was well appointed and was even stocked with spices, oils, coffee, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, etc. The back deck and yard were very pretty and private, and was a nice place to relax. The pool is close by, though it's a bit small given the number of people who frequent it. The owner and caretaker were very responsive to my pre-arrival questions, and to an issue we had with the A/C not working. (It was fixed within an hour or two.) My only suggestion would be to include a channel guide for the TVs to help guests navigate all the channels, (though I found an app for that), especially since it was baseball playoff season and we wanted to catch some of the games. I would be happy to stay here again on my next visit to Key West.

Lovely property with an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay - only two things of note. There is no full length mirror and most of the other rentals our family had in Truman Annex also came with bikes-which would have been a welcome addition
