Private Home with Large Private Pool in Old Town, Key West Hideaway

Perfect house and perfect location in Key West!

  • 5 of 5

This house is just GREAT.

We were 3 young people from France (Paris) , 1 couple and a friend and we absolutely loved our stay at Stefanie's home.

The location is great, in the middle of the town, near Duval St. Near all restaurants, bars etc...

What we preferred was the pool, very large for Key West, we stayed a LOT of time near/in the pool. The atmosphere of this home is great, with lush vegetation all around, we felt very relaxed during our stay.

The home itself is very comfortable, kitchen is huge, and the rooms are spacious.

Communication with Stefanie was great before and during our stay.

I would highly recommend this house and we will be back for sure!

Everything you could ever want and need.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got back after spending time in this adorable and amazing home...first and foremost you absolutely will not find a better location - hands down. It's incredibly private. Shielded from neighbors and located on a tiny, private walk way, all the way in the back. The lot is quite spacious which on a tiny island is quite a treat! Plenty of space to store bikes too. It's close to everything and you feel quite "local" being there. You are walking distance from everyone and literally a block from some of the best restaurants. You can get anywhere within minutes on a bike.

The home is lovely. It is a home - with all of the evidence of such - momentos, a few family pictures, artwork painted by the owners. So it feels lived in and loved. So you immediately walk in and feel comfortable. The kitchen is huge and open and stocked with everything you could need. You could definitely live here and be happy.

We only used the master bedroom and it was excellent. We slept 8-9 hours EVERY NIGHT. which we never (EVER) do...the bed is heaven. It's one of those things that can be easily overlooked but if you've ever stayed somewhere and the bed is terrible you know that this is vital! I travel alot and know the importance of having a bed you can really hunker into...this is one of them. The shower is HUGE!

The best part and where we spent the majority of our time was outside. Which is lovely and top notch. Well manicured near the pool and lots of lush vegetation that keeps neighbors at bay. A new deck, furniture, grill, and beautiful large pool! We were out there day and night. Literally! They recently built a new fence/gated door. SO you feel just a bit safer because of that!

We went in the DEAD of summer with the hear and humidity...with the ceiling fans and the air we were super comfortable and stayed cool.

If you are looking for a home, a place where you can relax, let go, and instantly feel comfortable, this is it. If you want a place with charm and that embraces the island lifestyle, this is it. My husband and I had the best time. We said to each other that this home made it all possible! Thank you Stefanie!

BEST KW Rental!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to Key West for 10+ years and this is one of the BEST cottages we have stayed in! It is large and comfortable. The pool is magnificent - full size!! The cottage is absolutely wonderful, with a warm, family, "homey" feel. Others have complained about this rental being "worn", but I disagree. There was NOTHING in this cottage that caused us to regret staying here. This is a family home, and you can feel the love as soon as you walk through the door. I will be back to stay at this cottage, as many times as the owner's will allow!!

Amazing Locale and Pool area, but accommodations tired

  • 3 of 5

We stayed for a month. Here is our honest evaluation.

The property is in a perfect location. There are 4 or 5 great restaurants blocks away. Great coffee at 5 brothers. The pool area is very nice , but the pool area furniture could use an upgrade. The barbecue was unusable, never been cleaned, but luckily my wife and I ate out every night. Time for a new one.

On the interior the place is old , but comfortable enough. The couches and chairs were dirty , we put towels on them not to see all the stains. The beds were ok but the linens towels etc were thin to threadbare. My wife and I are not fussy we things like things clean and comfortable. The kitchen is old and tired and needs a complete reno, as I said good thing we don't like to cook .

If you plan to rent a car don't bother , you don't need to. You can walk anywhere or rent a bike.

On the whole we really did enjoy our time there despite these relatively minor annoyances.. Management was attentive to any problems we had. The pool is great and heated. Property just needs some more TLC to warrant the rental price and to meet out expectations.

I rent somewhere every year for at least a month and I rate this as average for the money.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest reply. We appreciate so much every guest who stays at our home that we love ever so much. As you mentioned, despite the 'relatively minor annoyances' that you encountered, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Every year we have consistently made updates, we resurfaced the pool, replaced the pool deck and purchased a new pool heater as those are the areas most folks come to Key West to enjoy. The small items such as towels, linens have been replaced. A new bbq, deck furniture, and new couches are on their way. The kitchen remodel is in planning stages. More projects are planned on areas you mentioned. Thank you for your honesty and trust that the TLC on the changes is in place and we hope that you come back to see them! All the best.

We spent a wonderful week in this home--the pool was a lot of fun as was the outdoor shower. The kitchen was very well-equipped, and the outdoor eating and pool area was a lovely and peaceful oasis. The house is perfectly situated, near some quaint restaurants, a confused smoothie bar, and a very hospitable bike rental shop. In fact, we parked our car and didn’t move it for the entire stay, relying, instead, on our rental bikes.

Landlord is responsive and returns the security deposit in a timely manner. We will be back (and hope that our yummy and forgotten fudge in the freezer is still, there).

Wonderful 1 year anniversary/honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the time of our lives! Such an amazing locale. A short walk to the center of Duval yet tucked into a serene and tropical hideaway. Absolutely loved the swimming pool and indoor/outdoor living afforded by the open layout. Back to work and our lives now, but a happy, peaceful part of us is still adrift on a lounging raft...
