We enjoyed our stay very much at this location. The room was spotless, which is important to us. The 2 bikes were a great perk and we enjoyed riding them all over the island. Made it very convenient, relaxing and didn't have to worry about parking. The owners were very friendly, outgoing and accommodating. Felt like we've known them long before our stay. They really thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. We would definitely return to this spot!
Blu on White is a small yet fabulous place to stay in Key West!
Our three month stay at Blu on White was wonderful!! The location, still in Old Town yet far enough from Duval (10 minute bike ride) gave us that neighborhood feel. We could head into town and partake of all the bars, music, shopping, excursions, etc ... or we could hang out close to "home" because there were plenty of wonderful neighborhood restaurants, a small grocery, laundry, and a beach close by. The apartment itself was very nicely decorated and equipped. The private outside courtyard was a nice plus.
We enjoyed relaxing there in the mornings and evenings. Although small, we found that Blu on White worked fantastic for us. Additionally, Shawn and Adele, the hosts of Blu on White, are simply fabulous! They were readily available to help with any issues we had (almost none and all incredibly minor) and at the same time, very unobtrusive as we went about day to day living in beautiful Key West. Each time we visited with either of our hosts our awareness of what wonderful, interesting, and, well .... nice people they are!!! They truly enhanced our stay. We would happily return to Blu on White for future stays!
This is the deal of Key West! I am a tennis player and the suite is just a few blocks from Bayview tennis courts where all the local tennis is played. Just across the street is the island gym that I got a one month membership and made workouts convenient. Fausto's Grocery is just one door down from the gym and I swam every day at Higgs beach, a short bike ride from the place. The bike that comes with the rental was ideal and the check in, check out and other arrangements were low maintenance. Shawn is very accommodating. I plan to stay here again.
For a week we stayed in the studio nextdoor to Shawn and Adele. Two bicycles, the sun and blue sky and two lovely landlords who were most helpfull to make our stay as nice as possible. Thank you so much, hope to be back one dat with the rest of the family.
Shawn & Adele were very friendly and told us about some of the local places to eat. The actual efficiency was great it was clean and decorated very nice and it was very comfy. We had a full kitchen to utilize and a great little patio area outside and the efficiency is 5 min to the beach by bike which they proived two and main Duvall area was only about 10min by bike.
The efficiency bed was comfortable and the area around the house is very friendly we have stayed in Key West in different hotels and another efficieny previously and we will stay at Shawn and Adeles again for sure.
Small but elegant!
We spent a month in this lovely studio, small but everything you could need. Lovely outdoor patio added to the experience. Close to beaches, walking distance from all the fun of downtown Key West. Shawn was very helpful, would recommend highly!
