Reviewer Comments:

Pros: The unit was clean and furnishings were in good shape. WiFi was hi speed Xfinity. Kitchen was furnished with basic cooking pots, pans, knifes, utensils, etc. but if you are a gourmet cook bring your favorite, must have tools. Water out of the tap was better than the gallon of water we bought at the store. Cons: Bedroom abuts Truman Avenue which has a fair amount of traffic at night. Not bad until a scooter or motorcycle goes by. We travel with ear plugs which took care of the problem. The shades in the bedroom let in a lot of light. We travel with goggles so it was a non issue. Worth Mentioning: The house had been pressure washed the day before our arrival which tripped the GFI and circuit breaker leaving the bedroom without power. The electrician came out the next day to replace the GFI. Property Manager was very communicative throughout the process and even took care of our breakfast one day.

The rental is a beautifully remodeled 2nd floor apartment in an older house on Truman Street, a half block south of Duval. There is a nice porch on the front of the house overlooking the street with all the sights and sounds of Key West.

The bess suite was in pristine condition. The couches were comfortable as well as the bed. The kitchen seems brand new. If you are planning on cooking, bring your own supplies. There are none. We dealt with Danny and he was the definition of great customer service. Great location to go anywhere in key west.

Reviewer Comments:

Our air conditioner kept going out when we got there on Wednesday. I let the property managers know about this issue on Thursday morning. They did not fix the issue until Friday evening. Subsequently in the meantime we had to leave the windows open without screens; very noisy. In addition our smoke detector's battwry started beeping at 4:00 AM on Sunday morning and again on Monday morning at 4:00 AM; very little sleep. They sent someone over to change the battery on Sunday but he didn't have a ladder so he left the batteries with us. How were we going to change them without a ladder in a lofted ceiling? I would like a refund!

ABOUT THE HISTORIC OLD TOWN KEY WEST NEIGHBORHOOD:

The heart, and some would say the soul, of Key West is Old Town. Originally the city’s center, Old Town is today the central location for Key West’s historic district and tourist destinations.

Old Town’s Duval Street, which stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean is the main artery in Key West. Intersected by Truman Avenue, Duval Street provides the backbone from which Key West’s historic homes, seaport and cultural centers extend.

Old Town, particularly those areas North of Truman, is the neighborhood most people think of when they think “Key West.” Its homes are modest bungalows and magnificent mansions that live side-by-side along Fleming, Eaton, Margaret and Southard.

Old Town is generally the area west of White Street. Locals divide Old Town into two parts: South of Truman and North of Truman. Bahama Village, the neighborhood settled by Bahamian immigrants, is officially part of Old Town and it has maintained its character and distinctive Bahamian culture.

Old Town reflects the island’s long history as a seaport and cigar manufacturing town. Wealthy landowners built the magnificent Victorian and Gothic mansions surrounded by the small cottages that have become quintessential Key West. Since the 1970s, renovation and restoration of these homes has been a major part of Key West culture.

Beautifully updated inside and historically significant outside, these homes reflect the partnerships among homeowners, architects, builders and landscape professionals.

Strict construction and architectural guidelines and restoration and renovation consistent with Key West’s history have ensured Key West’s Old Town maintains its exceptional sense of place.

• Best features: Close to restaurants, entertainment and the seaport. Beautiful historic architecture. People watching. Quiet lanes. Duval Street. Tropic Cinema, art galleries, Hemingway Home and the Historic Seaport.

• Getting around: Great for walking. Stick to scooters and small cars. Parking is usually at a premium.

• Street boundaries: Old Town North-of-Truman: White Street to Whitehead Street and south to Truman. Includes the Key West Cemetery and Bahama Village. Old Town South-of-Truman: Eisenhower on the east to Fort Street on the west. Truman to United on the south with several blocks extending to the Atlantic Ocean next to the Casa Marina area.
