Reviewer Comments:

This was our second consecutive vacation staying in Solaris Cottage and we had another wonderful time. The owner obviously cares about the comfort of her guests. The cottage is in a great location, especially to our favorite restaurants on Petronia. An easy 15 minute walk to either end of the island. Close enough to Duval for a quick walk but far enough away that you don't hear the noise. Solaris Cottage is kept good shape with a full, usable kitchen (fully stocked with pans, plates, glasses, etc). A large TV, split A/C units, and a modern bathroom help make us feel at home. The vacation rental management staff is very helpful and responsive. The entire process is explained, written and reinforced via email and their new phone app.

Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I enjoyed a week at the Solaris Cottage in Key West. It was everything the reviews reported and then some.. easy walking distance to cafes, Duval street, wonderful coffee shops and everything we wanted to see. The cottage was extremely clean and cool in the Key West heat. We loved that we could cook breakfast every morning and enjoy the birds singing just outside the front door. The cottage is super private and a very comfortable place to hang out after exploring all day. We met the owner who lives upstairs (she was very nice), but she was so quiet we never knew she was around. We would love to stay here again.

Nice place near everything. Parking a car is a real issue as there is not parking near the cottage. Very clean and quaint.

Delightful little one-bedroom oasis tucked into a lane very convenient to all parts of Key West. Biking and walking only - no car needed. Lovely neighbors who made wonderful restaurant suggestions. All our daily needs were met - kitchen had all needed appliances and the washer/dryer were a plus! We would definitely stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

The property was clean and well maintained. The owner and manager provided good customer service. The property description was accurate. We were, however, awakened pretty much every night by noise. The recycling truck came by in the middle of the night and dumped the glass bottles into the truck making all kinds of noise, drunk guests from across the lane would come home at 12:30 and 4:45 in the morning yelling and laughing, and people skateboarding in the road on ramps at 12:30 in the morning. The location of the property was convenient. Besides the noise issue, I was happy with the property.

Owner's Response: Greetings Marcie! Thank you for your recent review of your stay at Solaris Cottage. Your comments about the property’s cleanliness, convenient location and the accuracy of its description are very much appreciated. Thank you for letting us know about the noise issues you experienced during your stay. The issue was discussed with the guesthouse across the lane and they agreed that this particular party was far from ideal. While Solaris Cottage is on a smaller, and typically quiet lane, it is in the heart of downtown Key West. Being a block and a half from Duval has its advantages as well as its disadvantages. It is unfortunate that during your stay, guests at a nearby guesthouse were disruptive. Key West is an extremely popular tourist destination for revelers and relaxers alike who usually vacation in harmony. Your feedback helps us improve our services. We hope to see you again the next time you visit sunny Key West!

Only a short walk to the food market and Duval Street, very quiet and safe neighborhood. This is a wonderful little cottage, extremely clean, nicely appointed kitchen, we cooked in a lot, comfortable bed. We stayed for 10 days and would highly recommend this property. We are in our 70's and loved the fact that there are no stairs. Great WiFi and cable TV, nice garden area to grill out, and it has a washer/dryer. Yeaaaa!
