Fine room, terrible customer service.
The room was fine for what it was. It was clean, comfortable, and met all of it needs, but our interactions with the management was less than stellar. Apparently they don't understand the are part of the hospitality industry.
We didn't realize there wouldn't be a place to park, for which we take responsibility, but when we explained our situation (pregnant wife + toddler child) and inquired about parking options, we where essentially told to pound sand. I believe the exact phrasing was "well what exactly where you expecting to do?" Expecting? I don't know, maybe advise or assistance from someone local that's familiar with their properties? Maybe guidance with where other guests have had success finding parking? You know some non-zero level of commitment to ensuring your customers enjoy their stay?
Would not recommend.
We are sorry your experience was so horrible all over a parking space. The VRBO description says that parking is limited and upon inquiry, we may have space available for rent. Unfortunately, all of those were taken when you inquired. You kept insisting as if we were able to magically create a parking spot for you. When we told you there was nothing we could do because the limited spots were taken, you still insisted that we do something. Parking in Key West is very limited especially when you are so close to Duval. We have no way of knowing what the free spot situation is like at any given time without us being there to observe the streets, which, as you would expect, changes at any given moment. The only remaining option is to drive around to see if you get lucky. Our responsibility is to manage our owners' properties with all aspects to booking, cleaning, maintenance, etc. Guests who choose to bring their cars are taking a chance of being frustrated because of the parking situation in Key West. We do not, and cannot, control that. Thank you again for staying with us.
We booked this place for 2 weeks while we were in Key West to get married. The location is phenomenal and the shared pool ended up being a must! The place is small, but it was perfect for two people if you don't plan on staying inside the whole time (it's Key West, who does?!)
My only issue was the fact that we were there for 2 weeks and when we asked for fresh linens, after the first week, we were told that it was our responsibility and they only get us started. I thought that was a little odd, especially for the length of our stay and the fact that there were no laundry facilities available.
Thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed the property and congratulations on the nuptials! Yes, it certainly can get confusing when you rent a vacation home/condo vs. a hotel room. When you rent a home/condo, it is just like you are at home. That rental becomes your home for the time you are here. There is no daily maid service, and just like at home, you would take care of your laundry via laundromat or something if you had no washer or dryer. We apologize for the misunderstanding.
Small, but clean and convenient.
Enjoyed the stay!
Thank you for the great review! Yes, this property is perfect for a couple only, but is very convenient to Duval Street! We appreciate your business and hope you come back and see us. Key West Hideaways
Efficient But Lacking
This rental had some great points and some bad points. Great points: The studio is located just off Duval so it's convenient to restaurants and shops, the bed was extremely comfortable and the studio was very clean. Staff at Key West Hideaways was also very pleasant. Bad points: The shower door wasn't quite set correctly which caused water to run over the kitchen floor, and it ended up being a little too cramped for our style. Furthermore, the pictures associated with the property include one of a beautiful deck and pool - this is not the deck that is attached to the studio! The Deckside in the name is about 10'x10' and includes a table, 4 chairs, umbrella and a hot tub. Not exactly what I was looking for, so I think this was extremely misleading. With the heat last weekend, I would've enjoyed hanging in the pool to cool down. Instead we had to sit inside on the bed (or the kitchen stools) to get a break from the heat.
This unit had everything we were looking for. It is located half a block from Duval, but is quiet enough that we did not hear any noises during the night that prevented us from sleeping well. The unit was clean, the AC worked well, and we had plenty of towels. The unit is not overly large, but we did not spend much time there. The property managers were very friendly and easy to work with. The pool is around the corner, easy to find, and well maintained. Overall, I would recommend this property.
Overpriced, lacking essentials
We stayed in the Deckside Efficiency on Petronius. We kept finding more things that needed correction every day. Only one burner on the stove works properly. The refrigerator freezes all food and drink and there does not appear a way to adjust this. The wall mounted air conditioners are so loud we had to shut them off. When we do shut them off there is a constant groaning noise coming from the ceiling? There is no dishwasher. The pool is a block and a half away. There is no cutting board, no dish towels to dry dishes, one broken wine opener, and a potato peeler that can't peel carrots. The igniter on the grill does not work. This accommodation was not worth the price we paid. I am sorry. I cannot give it a favorable review.
