Center of Key West!
So Roberta is the absolute best! I definitely recommend her as your agent. Super responsive.
We were four solo adults down for some fishing and warm weather. We walked and biked to absolutely everything. This house is a half block north of Duval and about (or maybe exactly) in the middle of Duval.
The back porch/deck is great to play cards and relax away from all the bars and nightlife.
The house is nicely equipped. Spacious downstairs living.
The upstairs could be weird depending on how your party is made up. There are 4 bedrooms but you have to walk through a bedrooms to get to bedrooms. For 4 friends is was fine as we all each had our own room. I think it would be fine also for a single family that don't mind or want your kids near you. I'd probabaly not recommend this for couples.
As described, clean and close to all the action. Highly recommended.
Wonderful Family Vacation
Had a wonderful stay with the family. The house is located in the historical district of Key West, one block from Duval. The house has been upgraded but the historical feel has been maintained. The deck was the perfect place to gather around the more than 100 year old Spanish lime tree. The owner recently completed upgrades to the deck so that the tree would have room to continue to grow. There were plenty of towels, sheets and all the other comforts needed. Each room has air-conditioning, overhead fans and televisions. The bedrooms have brand new carpet and as stated to get to the back bedrooms you enter through the front bedrooms. That was not a problem for us. The washer and dryer was a nice touch. It was clear we could have packed less since we were able to wash clothes. We walked to Duval street each night to check out the activity. Mallory square was a treat. We visited the Aquarium the museum and even joined Old Town Gym while we were here. The African Memorial and AIDS memorial at Higgs Beach was a 5 minute drive from the house however the property is so close to everything you don't need a car. Two blocks up Petronia at Thomas street is the Blue Heaven restaurant. Breakfast was delicious and the atmosphere was awesome. If eating at home is for you then the full kitchen is perfect we bought groceries upon arrival and ate both at home and at restaurants. We plan on coming back as soon as we can.
GOOD TIME IN OLD TOWN
Winding up our wonderful stay here in Key West, met people from all over the world. The house was roomy and comfortable, everything needed for a home away from home. Great back yard with a deck built around a beautiful shade tree. We had a new grill and all the necessary utensils for a great day of grilling. The backyard was a great place to relax, this was evident when people inquired about renting it for weddings, they were referred to the realtor. Renting a car for the duration of our stay was totally unnecessary because most of the activities were in walking distance, the Aquarium, Museum, shopping, restaurants, Mallory square and more. We are looking forward in returning with family and friends.
Wonderful Key West vacation house

Was perfect for couples one week as well as our children and grandkids thenext week. Roberta was great to work with and very attentive. Looking forward to staying there again in 2016.
Needs a lot of work
If your looking for a location that is close to Duval street this is for you. If your looking for the basics in a rental property , this is not the place for you. The house smells musty. The carpet in the bedrooms smells. Two of the bedrooms you have to go thru another bedroom to get to the bathroom. The sheets were thread bare, the silverware was the quality of the cheapest restaurant you have ever dined at. The mattress's were old and terrible to sleep on. The street noise was unbearable all thru the night. The back deck where you will spend a great deal of time is being pushed apart by the tree in the middle of it, therefore you can only use 1/2 of it for fear of falling thru the gaping holes. The chairs & umbrella on the deck must have been from the garbage truck, weren't able to adjust umbrella being held up by the rope tied to it.
I could on & on but I think you get my point.
I am sorry you found your stay not satisfactory. I can tell you the previous renters enjoy their stay to the point one is returning for three months next winter and the other would return to this rental property if they make a trip back to Key West.
To address some of the issues you mentioned: the tree is protected by law in Key West. I believe it to be over 100 years old. It does take preference over a small section of the deck. The previous renters had no issue or concern and enjoyed it's beauty. The mattress's were recently upgraded prior to your arrival and it was clearly noted in vrbo that two of the bedrooms need access from one of the main bedrooms. This has not been a big issue with past renters. All sheets are not even one year old.
This property is located right downtown in the Historic District walking distance to all the local attractions, fine restaurants, bars and events.
