Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The location could not be beat! Plenty of room to spread out and a beautiful view. We were so impressed with the maintenance of this complex - and it was spotless!

Nice enough place, had a few issues though

  • 3 of 5

First of all, the positive. The location was great, right across from a great beach and steps from a fantastic pool/hottub. The residents could not have been nicer! Bikes, towels and chairs were provided, which was lovely. The beds were super comfortable (we had four adults and two kids). It was easy to get in and out of, although the instruction sheet should be updated (Wifi was not working, we found out later they had changed the network but hadn't updated the sheet - minor frustration). The decor was certainly as pictured, very elaborate and fun, but the condo was a bit dated. Some things, such as mirrors, faucets, appliances were worn and didn't work super great. Dishwasher had to be run at least twice each time, and we never did locate the blenders/mixers. The biggest issue we had was that the toilet in the first bathroom quit working on the first day. Glenda (housekeeper) was GREAT and tried to get it fixed, waiting there for the plumber, etc. but it kept failing. Finally we were told it would be replaced, but not until after we had gone. So we had 4 adults and 2 kids fighting over one bathroom all week (and the one working toilet was in the master bedroom so it was really inconvenient!!). The owners weren't very sympathetic when I complained (said the optimal number was 5, not 6..which was irrelevant to me), although they ultimately did say they might give a discount on a future stay. To me this was insufficient and only served to secure future business, instead of dealing with our dissatisfaction over THIS stay. Bottom line, Key West was great, and I don't regret the trip...but probably would select a different condo next time.

Great trip

  • 4 of 5

Nice place, everything was clean and well maintained. The grounds and pool were very well cared for. Perfect location, across the street from the beach, and five minutes from the grocery and old town.

I will be back!!!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here over Christmas! Beautiful accommodations right across from the beach. Very easy to find as it is on the main road around the town! Extremely quiet both day and night. Everything you need or will need is here in the condo! Beds are very comfortable as well as all the living room furniture. Porch overlooking the ocean is a

wonderful beginning or end to a busy day. Hop-On/Hop-Off bus is few blocks away. Regular bus service comes right past the front door. 10 minutes or less to Downtown. 5 minutes to a Publix Supermarket! Excellent location! Beautiful landscapes!

Watch the cruise ships come and go!, overlooks pool and whirlpool!

New Years in Key West!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Island Dream after looking at the reviews and talking to the owners. We were not disappointed!. Clean, beautiful grounds, with a great pool area, right across from the beach and not far from downtown. The place has a unique decorators touch making you feel like you are in paradise. Great balcony looking over the ocean and beach, and perfect place for the morning coffee or evening nightcap. Bikes were an added bonus, and I would stay here again. Nice community of permanent residents in the complex that make you feel welcome. Thanks for the great place to stay.

Island Dreams is our vacation dream come true

  • 5 of 5

This has been our 2nd stay at Island Dreams during the past year. The owners are very quick to respond to questions and want to make sure we have the best experience in their beautiful property. Pictures of the grounds on the LaBrisa condo website do not do the property justice...the buildings and grounds are meticulously maintained. The pool and pool area are beautifully landscaped...be ready to take a picture of an iguana. The condo itself is decorated nicely and has everything you need. Plenty of linens, cookware and glassware. The bikes are a plus. Plan on taking a short ride to many local favorites places such as Southernmost Beach Cafe or Louie's or Sloppy Joe's. Once we get to the condo, we never want to leave.
