Very Good! 4.2/5 -

Downtown Cottage just off famous Duval Street
average rating of 4.181818 based on 22 reviews

Nice choice for the price

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a basic cottage for a reasonable price, this is the place for you! 2 bedrooms include: a master with an attached bath including tub shower combo and second bedroom is off living room, small and doesn't really a closet due to heating/ac unit being in there. Second bathroom is off kitchen/living room area with shower only, no tub. Washer/dryer is in second bathroom and they are small, but serve their purpose. Hide-a-bed in couch was comfortable, mattress in second bedroom more like a cardboard box.

If you are expecting the Ritz or something high end, you will be disappointed. I was looking for a basic place that didn't blow the budget and that is exactly what I had. It's all in managing your expectations and you won't be disappointed.

Instructions for parking were very confusing for cottage C, since it tells you not to park on the street and don't park in front of the house but to park off street. Helpful hint, park on the concrete pad by trash cans right in front of unit. Property manager should list that for the instructions.

Overall, enjoyed the stay and would recommend to anyone who isn't high maintenance type traveler.

Melody, Newport, RI

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage. Had everything needed from full kitchen and plenty of towels. There was even a resident cat which was very nice. About 25 minutes to downtown but Duval St started very close to the cottage which gave us an opportunity to see the part which most people don't visit. Lots of restaurants and shops on the walk. Had an issue with the cable because of heavy rain but Roberta helped us fix it over the phone right away. Nice pool area as well. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it. Roberta was wonderful as well..

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is more than what is described on line. It has 2 bed rooms with 2 large baths, every gadget that you could think of is in the kitchen. You're a block away from a great restaurant, The Flaming Bouy. Great seafood and deserts. The property manager stopped by to check if we needed anything. We're looking forward to booking again next year.

Very Disappointing Rental

  • 1 of 5

Visiting Key West 2 times a year for 10 years, we have rented various properties including military vacation accommodations. This property by far has been the worse. We agree completely with the other April 2017 review. The property is "worn" and requires serious updating. The mattresses, linens and towels were terrible. No dresser in one room and only 9 hangers for 4 people. Bathroom fixtures loose and old. Dryer not working and repair done on day we left. Pool was not usable for week there and grounds overgrown and dirty. I tried to address by leaving a note and two follow ups emails with property manager. Roberta said she would call but never did. Considering the rental charge for this property and its condition, I feel some sort of refund is warranted. I would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: It always amazing me how one would stay in accommodations for a week that they gave a one star rating. The cottage is not the Ritz and if it were it would of been $600 a night and not the price of a local hotel on the Island. My repeat renters love the idea of getting a good rate instead of being ripped off by most vacation rental property owners on the Island. The cottage has 22 reviews with a 4.2 average rating and since your stay had received two more five star reviews. Yes my Dad who is 88 years old had a stroke at my home and was air-lifted to Miami. During that time I had a pool pump go bad that needed to be ordered and a yard man that would rather be fishing than do his job. I had mentioned to you that there is another washer/dryer on property for your use and that there were local pools that you could use as well. I hope interested renters will give this property a fair chance. It is a true conch cottage and I would be happy to give you references of my repeat renters. Roberta Mira

No dream holiday accommodation

  • 2 of 5

We appreciated the quaint charm of the place. Unfortunately the minuses were plenty. The garden was unattended until our last day (1 week's stay), and the allotted garden table was covered with an extremely filthy tablecloth. The totally unmatched kitchenware was not cleaned (glasses with lipstick stains and dirty plates in the cupboards). The towels were threadbare, some full of stains. The age of bed linen also raised some doubts. The bathrooms are in serious need of renovation. The tap in second bathroom was not in working order. We also understood that the chemicals used to clean the pool contained toxic substances. The owner was not available when contacted. We hope that Mrs Mira's father is feeling better. Regarding the very high rental fee, this place hardly corresponds to the usual European standards. It won't be possible to recommend the place to our overseas family and friends.

This place was very disappointing. There were ghost ants all over the counter, the guest shower looked so unkept neither of my guests would shower in it. There were no extra spices available so we had to make due without. The pool was in the center of the 3 houses that were very close together so we could not have a lot of fun in it - being respectful to the other guests.

Regarding Roberta the manager: she was nice but not accommodating. She told me there was "extra's" in her office that we could pick up with our key - I sent my husband there the next day to get it - and there was nothing. He drove all the way to her office for no reason. We also wanted to stay one more night in Key West, but Roberta said "No, the place is booked." If I were in her shoes and knew the lay of the land I would have offered my help or at a minimum some suggestions- hers was a flat no. While shopping downtown I ran into a very nice shop keeper who chatted with me and gave me several suggestions about what to see and do in Key West- places to stay for a good price - something you would expect a property manager to do. Roberta was nice once I got her on the phone - she just was not very helpful. All in all - we ended up leaving Key West and staying the extra night in Key Largo where our accommodations were amazing and the service was wonderful

Owner's Response: I am sorry you found the property not up to your liking. Below is a "five star" review from Vicki W who came in to rent the cottage right after your stay. I remember you rented two days and arrived very early (10:00 am) check in time is 3:00. I accommodated you by letting you put your luggage into the cottage while the cottage was being cleaned. I would of loved to extend your stay another day, but was fully booked in all three cottages, which I find interesting in that you found the place so bad in your review that you would even want to stay another day! You reference "extras" at my office. I put all extras in your check-in package. Roberta Vicki W review: I hit the jackpot finding this property! Great location and walking distance to Duval and all the shopping and entertainment it brings. Easy access to bike rental as well. The property was clean comfortable and with 2 fulls baths it was accomodating for 6 adults. The kitchen space was a great gathering spot while watching my favorite baseball team advance to the championship series. We definately took advantage of the grill and pool area I only wish we could have had access to the lounge chairs earlier in our visit. Routine visit by very friendly maintenance and pool staff was nice. I would highly recommend this property for couples and/or family and I look forward to another visit sometime in the future!
