About Bruce & Leslie Redler

Our full time home is in HIlton Head, SC. We both work in the health care profession.

In addition to our 'home away from home' condo, Crown Jewel, in Key West, we also have a part-time home in Brevard, NC.

We are active - between the two of us we love scuba diving, fishing, mountain biking, snowskiing, tennis, running (well, for a 5K distance anyway!).

Both of our children are out of the nest - and we are taking the opportunity to enjoy the freedom to spend more and more time in our favorite spot in all of the world - right here!

Bruce & Leslie Redler purchased this condo in 2004

Why Bruce & Leslie Redler chose Key West

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Key West has the most beautiful water of anywhere in the USA!! We are certified scuba divers, and the Florida Keys offer incredible dive opportunities within the confines of the continental United States. We also love live music - which is readily available at most hours of the day/night here in Key West.

Hope to be back next year!

Words can't express the wonderful Condo. Every morning I had my coffee on the balcony listening to the waves. The description is accurate. Leslie was on the ball....even after the hurricane, we were in correspondence to make sure everything was safe and sound. I definitely recommend Latitudes Restaurant. I would definitely recommend to everyone!

all the comforts of home in a beautiful, peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

This condo turned out very well for our family trip including our 5 & 7 year old kids. Inside, the unit felt more like a home than a rental. The furnishings are very comfortable and we enjoyed the special upgrades to the kitchen and bathrooms. We enjoyed the surround-sound TV in the living room. From pots & pans to linens - the special touches & extras made the stay more enjoyable. A beautiful view from the large balcony overlooking both the pool and the ocean. The pictures don't do justice to how roomy this unit is.

The overall property was very nice. The pool / hot tub area were a lot of fun. There is a sand "beach" area next to the pool, but no direct access to the ocean unless you want to step over some tall grass (not that big a deal to do so). Key West is a rock island, not a beach island, so any beaches are manmade. The property is quiet and secluded.

We liked the location of this condo on Key West, also. The unit is a couple miles away from Duval Street and most of the restaurants / shops / etc. It's nice to be able to enjoy that part of Key West, but then check out when you're ready to be out of the crowds. Still, a short drive or cab ride away. We'd stay here again.

Picking up the keys to the condo was easy. The rental company that manages the condo gave us clear instructions and had an efficient system for an after-hours pickup.

Beautiful, spacious loved it

  • 5 of 5

Everything was really great. Enjoyed the place so much. Views, pools, area, home was all great! The only thing was it was not stocked with enough toiletpaper paper towels or enough condiments. It's a shame we had to buy it all and leave it. Hopefully someone else can enjoy it.

Could have spent the entire stay on the porch!

  • 5 of 5

Super clean. Very comfortable beds. Spent a lot of time on the amazing porch. Stocked better than my own kitchen. Loved the at home feeling. Owners were very kind to accommodate our last minute booking. Easy acces to everywhere on the island. A new favorite location.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Great place in a great location. Quiet area and not far away from everything. Well decorated, comfortable for 6. Felt like a get-away home. Highly recommended. We will definitely be going back.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Key West has the most beautiful water of anywhere in the USA!! The Florida Keys offer incredible dive opportunities within the confines of the continental United States.

The Unique Benefits at this Condominium:

We love the tranquil, tropical garden/pool setting of our condo complex. Smather's Beach is right at our doorstep.

Yet, Duval Street - the hub of nightlife, dining and shopping, is just 5 minutes away to be enjoyed whenever we wish.

Our condo has a full oceanfront view - such that you don't even have to leave the condo to enjoy the beauty that Key West has to offer. Many a time, you just may find yourself getting stuck on 'The Perch'!!

Other Activities: Shopping. Parasailing, Boating
