We Booked Again!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our one-month visit to the Treehouse. It was our first time renting a property. We lucked out! We think that this is one of the hidden gems in KW. The extra large, private deck and the location make the Treehouse a great choice. The deck is just as its described, nestled among the mango tree and palms. The patio furniture has been updated since the pictures were taken. The table still seats six and has a new umbrella in the center. The hammock was a great option for us to use. There is a canopy near the door to the unit, it provides a place to sit to enjoy the rare rain event. The unit itself is simply furnished, but comfortable. The kitchen has a good two burner stovetop, microwave, coffee pot, pots / pans, tervis cups and a decent sized closet / pantry. A grocery store (Fausto's) is close by. Ken and Mary Gay provide the use of two bicycles. We went everywhere on them! The full-size washer and dryer were outside of the owners unit and shared. They were available every time we wanted to use them. I had to work while I was in KW so the wifi access was very important to me. We initially had a signal strength issue, but Ken quickly provided a signal booster. Problem solved! We brought our two indoor cats with us. Our pets did not have any issues adjusting to the new space. They enjoyed sitting by the door looking out onto the deck. Overall, we were very comfortable. We liked it so much that we left the Treehouse with a deposit paid for 2018. I 100% recommend this property!

Perfect Key West Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for six weeks during May & June 2016. We loved each day. The interior is simple but useful and cozy. The porch is where we spent the majority of our time. Whether it was swinging lazily in the hammock under the mango tree or grilling up fresh fish on the BBQ, the outdoor space was a gathering spot for smiles and happiness. In terms of location on the island, this is second to none. Just a short walk from the restaurants and bars on the docks or a simple bike ride to virtually anything you could need. During the booking process, Ken was easy to work with and great with communications. Overall, I cannot say enough positive things about this place.

Hidden in the Trees

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just departed from this cute, treehouse hideaway. This is a great location with easy access to everything either by foot or with the bicycles provided by the owner. We spent a great deal of time on the expansive deck complete with chaise lounges, hammock and dining table with umbrella. The unit is comfortable with everything needed for a long stay. Ken and Mary Gay are wonderful hosts!

Great value in Key West

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i spent the month of January in this great Tree House. Great location, everything is just a short walk or bike ride away. Ken and Mary Gay were wonderful hosts and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The unit was a good fit for the two of us, we cooked on the grill many times and enjoyed the deck very much. We already booked this unit for January 2016

a little bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a month in the Tree House and loved every minute of it. The deck is a wonderful place to relax either lounging in the hammock, sitting in the lounge chairs or just sitting at the table eating your meal. We also enjoyed the generous hospitality of the owner who went out of his way to please. The location is also great for walking to "whatever is happening" on Duval Street or the Historic Seaport. We are going back!

Great Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

A great way to see the entire island of Key West. Amenities were perfect. Quiet setting, and close to everything we wanted to see. The owners were amazing with helping us get around and show us where to go and what to see in addition to getting great deals on some of the attractions.

Can't wait to go back.
