I currently have a travel agency, DTS Travel, affiliated with Uniglobe Travel specializing in special needs travel, cruises,destinations. resorts and more We get to Key West about 6 months a year and want to go more. We love to boat, hike, watch sports, travel, garden, bird watch,eat gourmet food, collect wine and are big UNC Tarheel fans and love nature, another reason we love Key West. We live full time on Lake Norman, a big man made lake north of Charlotte with our cat.

Steve and Debbie Smith purchased this condo in 1998

Why Steve and Debbie Smith chose Key West Area

We fell in love with Key West. It is absolutely beautiful. The water turquoise blue. It is so clear it is like swimming in the sky. Everyone is friendly. The food is fantastic even in the hole in the wall places. There is so much to do if you want to or you can just relax on the balcony, the beach, or by the pool. There is something for every age. You can walk everywhere. We ride bikes. You can fly or drive to get there, the northernmost Caribbean island you can drive to. It is in the USA and has all the benefits of an American town, shopping, theater, art, medical plus fishing, gourmet dining, music of all kinds, fun bars and clubs, and the island is very safe. We have no fear walking home late at night.

What makes this condo unique

We are located on the ocean with a beautiful 90 degree view from our balcony. At certain times of the year you can see the sun rise from your bed. The complex has it's own beach and is right next to Smathers Beach a palm studded man madewhite sand beach with parasailing, kayaking, and more. Our Olympic pool is right on the ocean so you can watch the ocean and not get sandy. There is a Jacuzzi next to the pool. The interior courtyard is a huge tropical garden with hundreds of orchids The building is secure. We face the north east so sitting on the balcony in the afternoons under the ceiling fan and watching the ocean and conch parade is a delight. Every morning we walk by the sea either down by Smathers or out on the White street Pier. Our condo is fully furnished including linens. For the price of a hotel room you have a 1300 sq. ft. home. It is so nice to not have to go out for all our meals. The complex is close enough to Duval Street to go play and them come home to quiet. People live full time in about half of the units. There is secure parking under the building a short stair climb or elevator away. This is our little part of heaven.

Beautiful Key West Condo on the Ocean with a spectacular 90 degree Ocean View
average rating of 4.3 based on 10 reviews

Photos of views were just a little off but really enjoyed the condo.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was well appointed. Key security system was a little over done. Wonderful experience overall. Pictures of ocean view and "walkway" to beach were slightly misrepresented. Not a direct walk to beach. Balcony was wonderful.

Jan stay

  • 4 of 5

Staying here was everything they said it would be. The condo was the perfect size, the beds were comfortable and it had adequate supplies for cooking. The pool was better than the one at the hotel and the people there were very friendly. Location was best of both worlds, beach across the street and the pool at your feet. We walked into town almost everyday. If you take the back roads its about a 20 min walk but its so peaceful and quiet as apposed to the busy main streets. I would rent this place again in a heart beat. The one and only thing i didn't like was the traffic noise from the busy main road while we sat on the balcony, but you don't hear it at night when you close the doors

Nice spacious condo with great view

  • 5 of 5

Nice condo. Very spacious with plenty of drawer space, closet space, vanity space. Plenty of bath and beach towels available. Plenty of dishes and glasses. We went food shopping and ate breakfast there each morning rather than going out. The bed was comfortable and great view of the beach laying in bed. Condo faces the East so you do get the early sun. Did see a beautiful sunrise one morning. Big deck with plenty of seating. Only 2 of us but if had another couple (or kids) would still be plenty of room. We saw a beautiful full moon over the ocean from deck.

Pool area nice, not crowded so always able to get a chair. It was very hot when we went and able to get a spot in the shade. There is doorway right to the pool across from condo door (convenient).

The condo is dated but it didn't really bother me because had plenty of room and all of the amenities needed. One thing missing was no dish detergent (washing in sink). We had to buy that and left there for next people.

We could walk to Smathers beach and there are beach chairs in the closet to use.

We rented bikes from There is a bike rack on the property and we did a lot of biking to get around. We had a car since drove from Miami but only used once. It is about a $15 cab ride for 2 people to the heart of Duval St.

We walked to Salute for dinner (on Higs Beach). Great food! We also went to Shanana key Irish bar about 3-4 blocks up Bertha. A local place and easy walk. Otherwise we biked. Other restaurants we went to:

El Siboney (cuban), Garbo's grill (late lunch after swimming at Fort Taylor Zachory park, Two Friend's patio (after Mallory Square sunet) - had great Key Lime Pie, Waterfront Brewery, Alonzzo's (great happy hour after Fury Snorkeling trip).

Met people at the pool and everyone seemed happy with all of their condos. Don't forget your key!! Need a key to get back into building everywhere. My husband forgot his when dropping off something in car and had no reception to call me and had to wait for someone to come by.

We would stay there again!

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

Condo was very nice and spacious, well kept, and comfortable beds. The condo was nicely located on the 2nd floor and close to the stairs as far as leaving the condo to go to the garage, pool, or beach. We didn't use the stove or dishwasher but the water pressure in the kitchen sink wasn't very good and the dryer doesn't dry very well.

This condo is a good choice if you are there for a "family" vacation or have younger children. Our boys were 18 and it wasn't ideal for them, they wanted to be where the action was on Duval. The actual location of the condo is not super great if you want to visit Duval street daily mainly because of the commute and parking limitations on Duval. But actual location is good if you want to walk to the beach or spend time at the pool.

Debbie was very pleasant to deal with leading up to leasing the condo as well. She was very accommodating by emailing us several things to see and do while visiting FL.

The only pain was all the additional paperwork required to secure the lease.

Location great, condo is a beater.

The pros

Great locations steps from beach

Great view

Nice terrace

The cons

T.I.R.E.D condo( hasn't been updated since 80s)

Faded furniture, stained pillows

Kitchen equipped with dorm style dishware

Closet doors and cabinet doors coming off

Stained carpeting

AC not functioning

Elderly tenants

For this price we could have rented an adorable bungalow, maybe not right on the beach, but at least clean and modern.

Condo in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo so much!!! Beautiful views of the ocean from the huge balcony!!! The bed was comfortable and it was so nice to have all of the comforts of home right at your finger tips. The secured parking garage was an additional bonus!! We will definitely stay here again the next time we come to Key West.
