We were thrilled to find such an outstanding place during the holiday week - the cottage is immaculate, comfortable, and nicely furnished. The location is great - quiet yet conveniently located for all destinations. The owners are very responsive. Overall an outstanding experience.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast in keywest and really enjoyed our stay in this bungalow. It was in the perfect spot...quiet but not too far away from the action. We would definitely stay again.

Perfect Get Away !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for a get away and very private surroundings made it that much better. The only thing I did not like about the place was the SCALE IN THE RESTROOM !! IT SHOWED HOW MUCH WEIGHT I GAINED FROM ALL THE GOOD FOOD WE ATE !!! All kidding aside... I loved staying here with my husband for the long weekend.

I look forward to more visits in the future.

Great place to stay in the winter time

  • 3 of 5

I want to first write this review indicating how incredibly kind Narceline, Michel's wife, was to us. She basically handles everything. The cottage was clean, beautiful, and very homey. My two girlfriends and I had a blast here and would definitely come back but probably when it is cooler in Key West.

The biggest complaint the girls and I had was that it was absolutely unbearably hot at times even with the window AC units. A recommendation would be to put curtains on the kitchen windows and the foyer windows to keep the heat out. Narceline also explained when we arrived that it would get hot because the particular style of the windows leaks some air so make sure to keep the doors that lead to the outside closed, which we did but it was still too much heat. Narceline also explained the house still has these windows for aesthetics and style...this should be corrected and changed. It is very humid in Florida, especially in Key West. Heat like that while sleeping really wasn't fun. The only room where you could cool down was the corner room where you can sit and eat. We all rotated sleeping in there for sleep or naps in order to get some good rest. Getting ready after showering and blowdrying hair was unbearable at times. I hate to nag because of how beautiful it was but the AC really needs to be corrected. I would never stay here in the summer again.

Last thing, this also was a bit unorganized I feel like. On this website it indicates no physical address nor a telephone number even after you book the reservation. It states that the tenant will call or notify the guests of the physical address prior to arrival, which never occurred. I had to call Homeaway, to call the tenants, and couldn't get a hold of them. left a message, no call back. Homeaway ended up giving us the address so it was fine. However it took several phone calls till we finally heard from them. This situation was occurring throughout the day of our travel to Key West. You could imagine the worries going through our heads: we don't know where we are going, are they going to be at the house so we can get our keys when we get there, this was my first time using Homeaway not AirBNB, is this a scam etc. It's not a terribly big deal because we obviously got there but that was just not a good feeling for the car ride there and it was somewhat of an inconvenience to finally get the address, finally get a hold of the tenants, and all of this could have been prevented with proper organiza.

Nice Cottage setup

  • 3 of 5

Owner was out of country this was disclosed to us in advance. Upon arrival we had difficult time locating this unit as unit #3 is on backside of unit 1.

At one point we through we will have to look for alternate place to stay.

Once we found it our stay was pleasant , Good setup. This house has attic vent system to blow hot air out which need to keep running in low speed in hot summer as 2 individual A/C system are not big enough to cool this place. They need to install another A/C in Bedroom.

Our refrigerator broke down after 2 day of stay & we wouldn't reach out to owner to resolve this issue , Did email owner but no response even after couple of days. We had to toss our groceries in trash.

Key West Hideout

  • 5 of 5

This little getaway home has a great clean and organized feel that makes you feel like you are in a tropical paradise with trees and flowers all around the exterior. The inside is wonderfully decorated and comfortable with plenty of sleeping space and fans + A/C units to keep the place at just the right temperature. The owners are extremely nice and showed us a couple of recommended places to eat and shop, with a small grocery store just 3-4 minutes away walking. Everything, including the beaches are close which makes this vacation rental is just right.
