What we needed.
The place was clean and just what we needed, convenient to Key West where are son was getting married. The property manager was very nice and eager to accommodate us. Only things that could be improved were the step into the kitchen really needs to be marked, as we tripped a couple of times and the driveway was a nightmare due to all the rain. It gave a new definition to "pot holes." .
Property was kept up
Upon arrival the property was a little ruff. The first impression was that the dirt road leading in could use a bit of work, bunch of pot holes. The next thing I noticed was the grass hadn’t been cut. Walking around the property found some garbage around my unit including a pair of old shoes with socks in them, also an insole. Pool was nice for the first three days then it turned green and we couldn’t swim. We had family staying down there so we used their pool when are was to green. I notified the owner about the pool and she said she would compensate us for the days we were unable to use it. Cottage was clean and the ac rocked. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen was great for cooking especially the grill behind the unit. We brought our lab and the owner was extremely accommodating for deciding to bring her last minute. Perfect secluded get away with many options on the property to stay.
The cottage was perfect for the two of us and our two puppies. The cottage was clean and the air conditioning worked so well, we raised the thermostat to stay comfortable. The area is very convenient to Key West, which is a plus on rainy days when you can't go fishing or to the beach. Susan was very attentive and quickly handled one small issue we encountered.
I would definitely recommend the cottage.
I am so glad you had a great vacation and hope to see you and your fur people soon.
We enjoyed our time in the Keys and this little cottage was our little area for rest after a long hot day. However, every day we came back to the cottage hoping to take a dip in the pool only to discover the water very cloudy, dirty and most often so green you could not see through the water. My daughters only got to swim in it on day one of our week long stay. We were told it was from the rain water, but the neighbor's pool stayed lovely and blue and clear. Not buying it. It simply wasn't kept clean until absolutely necessary. We were offered the use of the kayaks instead, but they too were left by other users in a very messy condition and not upkept by the owners. The kitchen was sufficient for cooking a stay in meal, and the area for sitting was comfortable as was the bed. We slept like babies on the comfortable bed and pull out. A couple of evenings it was still cool enough to enjoy time on the covered lanai. Overall, the cottage was nice and accommodating but lacked the final piece of heaven we were looking for at the end of a hot day...the lovely pool shown in the photos. I would recommend this cottage if you plan to stay out on your boat all day, or simply need lodging after touring all day and don't want the use of a pool. The boat docks were fairly decent for users as well. The grassy area surrounding the cottages was fairly over grown and desperately in need of a mow which looked really shabby after the beautiful property next door had been maintained from top to bottom. All in all, the cottage was so so but did the job of being a place of rest and sleep...nothing more which was disappointing. We wanted refreshment in the pool. If the pool is a swaying factor for you, I would go elsewhere. If it is just a bed and kitchen you seek, then I think this place will do fine. Personally, I left feeling I could have spent the same amount to lodge elsewhere and still receive the amenities promised.
Things happen from time to time and unfortunately the pool pump broke and had to be ordered. The pump is fixed and the pool is crystal clear! As you will see from our other reviews everyone loves this place, I'm sorry you weren't able to enjoy the pool during your stay.
Memorial Day weekend trip
Great place! Booked this for a 3 day weekend to relax. Even though it rained most of the weekend thanks to tropical storm Alberto, the cottage was clean and comfortable. I slept like a rock in the comfortable bed. The pool was nice but too cold for me from all the rain. The views of the ocean were amazing. We will come back!
Nice property although still work to be done. We didn’t expect to see a tarp on the roof however it rained and there were no leaks. Lighting is a definite needed improvement around the dock and pool. Very dark at night and prohibited us from enjoying the property after 6pm. Kayaks were a great plus! I had the pool to myself the entire vacation!!! Cottage had everything we needed except a dust pan and broom and that was received ASAP after requesting it. 4 -6am trash and recycling pick up Times is a definite change needed. Although we were not horrified by it as we live on a farm and early morning activity is normal being on vacation that it can be a bit annoying. Laundry onsite was a plus to have however renting private homes in the past they are free of charge so that was an added charge that I feel should be included in the rental cost. Overall a nice place to stay. Thank you!
Located in the heart of the fabulous Florida Keys, you have access to the best fishing, snorkeling and diving right at your back door. We have our very own reef, Looe Key, which offers some of the best snorkeling and diving in the United States. And for a little entertainment, Key West is just a short drive south, or take the shuttle, which stops just steps from your home. There are many restaurants in Key West to suite any palate, several museums and attractions, and don't forget those world famous bars. If you go north, you will find Marathon Key, there are also beaches, restaurants, and many attractions here.
