  • The best location!

    "This is our 4th or 5th time staying at Shipyard condos and the 1st time at this unit. The location is perfect; a couple of blocks from the center of Duval and 1/4 mile from the best beach on the island,Fort Zach. You don't need a car when staying in Old Town and this spot is quiet but still close to everything. Don't want the sunset crowds of Mallory Square? Just grab one of the beach chairs and head out your back door over to what used to be part of the naval property and enjoy. We have stayed in a Shipyard unit that was strictly a rental income and they did not provide beach chairs,coolers,beach towels,guest book,etc. and staying in an owner occupied unit like Donna's is so much more convenient and personal.The unit is filled w/local artwork and personal,homey touches. If you don't want to eat out every nite, the kitchen is well stocked w/utensils,plates,etc. and there is a grill on the deck along w/spices in the cabinet, foil and ziploc bags. We bungeed our tandem bike rental like a pack mule and brought charcoal,cooler,lunch,chairs to the beach(along w/our travel hammock!) and settled in for a few hours of paradise. Hammock swinging in the shade, the beautiful green blue waters, and the smell of local yellowtail on the grill.The beach has chair rentals and a concession stand if you want to keep it simple.There is a large pool on site but w/the proximity to the beach, we rarely have used it but it's there to enjoy.Check out the guest book for suggestions in the area.We would highly recommend getting out on the water for a snorkel/dolphin watch/kayak excursion and also check out the Hemingway House, the Butterfly Conservatory, Mel Fisher museum, a walk thru KW cemetery and live music and happy hour at one of the bars.And Donna sent us a walking map and other info. Enjoy this little bit of paradise! Thanks! Alison and Mary"

  • Very nice condo

    "Condo was very nice and spacious, well kept, and comfortable beds. The condo was nicely located on the 2nd floor and close to the stairs as far as leaving the condo to go to the garage, pool, or beach. We didn't use the stove or dishwasher but the water pressure in the kitchen sink wasn't very good and the dryer doesn't dry very well. This condo is a good choice if you are there for a "family" vacation or have younger children. Our boys were 18 and it wasn't ideal for them, they wanted to be where the action was on Duval. The actual location of the condo is not super great if you want to visit Duval street daily mainly because of the commute and parking limitations on Duval. But actual location is good if you want to walk to the beach or spend time at the pool. Debbie was very pleasant to deal with leading up to leasing the condo as well. She was very accommodating by emailing us several things to see and do while visiting FL. The only pain was all the additional paperwork required to secure the lease."

  • Relaxing in KW

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The main reason we chose this property was the covered patio overlooking the water. With that being said we spent most of our time outdoors. the property was as described, it needs a bit of updating, but very clean and well maintained. Our contacts from Rent Key West were wonderful. from the initial quote\booking to check-in they were cheerful, and professional."

  • And Paradise It Is

    "Love, love, love this condo! This was my fourth time renting in Shipyard and this was by far the best condo I have rented. It is very nicely decorated, not over the top tropical decorations or paint colors, just nice soothing colors in the rooms, with appropriate paintings, decorations and furniture throughout the condo. It kind of had a subtle feeling, very warm and homey. The best re-do of a bathroom I have seen in Shipyard. The design opened it up, tons of storage and a great walk-in shower. Beds were very comfortable, and nice bedding. Comfortable sofa, great TV's, stereo. Very well stocked kitchen, you will want for nothing. Washer/dryer, plenty of towels, both bath and beach. Patio out back was fantastic - table and chairs, grill and beautiful plants. When at the condo we spent most of our time out there. Also a small front porch with a table and two chairs. While we did not rent a car this time, the parking space is very close to the rear entrance of the condo. Not all units offer this feature. My favorite feature was the keypad, both front and back. No worrying about who has the key or losing the key. We had three adults in the condo for seven nights and never got in each other's way. Great location, beautiful complex and pool. Close to everything but you feel a million miles away when relaxing at the pool or on the patio. Chris, the owner, was a pleasure to work with, lots of communication, always available. I can't say enough how important that is when you are renting long distance. I will definitely want to rent this condo again on my next trip to Key West. Give this condo a try, you won't regret it."
