Lovely weekend in Key West. Spent two afternoon at the Fort Zachary State Park beach.

  • 5 of 5

The property was easy to find and centrally located to all the festivities of the weekend wedding at the Hemingway house our houseful was attending. There are wonderful restaurants within walking distance tucked away on side streets away from the bustle and noise of Duvall Street. Two we especially enjoyed were Blue Heaven and Firefly. The owner of the property was very prompt in attending to a couple of needs that came up during our visit. We found this quaint cottage perfect for our Key West weekend!

Great location! Very easy and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The key pad on the doors means no checking in and getting in late was a breeze. The location was amazing. Everything was a 5 minute bike ride away. The house has a somewhat strange configuration with one bedroom having its own outside door and the other door leading to another bedroom but very workable for a family. We loved it!
