Vacation Rental Summary
The location is excellent. easy walk to Duval st. Close to taylor state park which is the best beach in Key West. Interior of the rental is dated, particularly the bathrooms. The rental was also very close to the pool. Overall, I would recommend.
The unit was clean, well stocked with all you would need. The bedding was not, however. soiled, and smelling of something.I mention this because we sleep there. and above all it needs to be clean. I also had to fix the middle brace in the frame of the bed. it is missing bolts. and I did not find any on the floor.
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. As happy as we are that you enjoyed your visit, we are dismayed that there were Housekeeping issues. Had we known, we could have corrected these issues immediately; this is not something we would ask you to "live" with while staying with us.
This was a lovely property! Small but cozy and with all the amenities we would want. Great porches outside bedrooms. Gas grill on patio was a plus. Steps away from the pool. Much nicer and cheaper than staying in a hotel. Central, convenient location. Would recommend highly.
Great place in Truman annex, loved sitting on the front porches, close to downtown, the beach and beautiful sunset views.
We have stayed in this rental property before and like it very much. It has everything we need and is located within walking distance of Mallary Square, Duval St, the beach, and (our favorite) the Green Parrot!!. There also is a very nice heated pool. We will definately be back for another stay! Love Key West.
This was our second time with at home ,we really like the location for the pool and ease of our fun spots but the lack of a bath room down stairs and the smaller bath rooms upstairs wasn't up to par .we had a great time and as allways the personnel for at home was top notch, we really liked a place in Paradice better which we rented last time. The Hemingway beds and baths are suited more for smaller people. other than that we had a great time
The location of the rental was amazing! Walking distance to everything! The house itself inside was a disaster. Everything was old, the bed were horrible! The springs bounced you right off the bed if you threw yourself down too fast. The pull out couch was horrendous! My friends back was bruised from the bar that pushed threw the 30 year mattress. Oh and we cannot forget the leak from the light fixture right about the dining table. Apparently, if you don't fully pull the curtains all the way around you in the shower upstairs and water leaks out of the tub onto the floor, it will leak downstairs onto the table. In our case onto a laptop that was sitting there. When we called to have it fixed we were told it was a known problem and that we just need to make sure to close the shower curtain all the way. I am sure all the other rentals in the area aretha nicer and better taken care of but for the price we paid this was totally not worth it! As for at Home in Key West... The lady who helped with our reservations was great! But make sure you have your packet handy because of you happen to call ahead and ask any questions they won't answer and say its in the packet! Also, don't bother calling to let them know you won't be making it in time before the office closes to pick up the keys; they will tell you "instructions are in the packet"! All in all, "The Hemingway" is not worth the money at all!!!
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We will share your comments about the beds with the owner. Thank you for the compliment given to Libby, your reservationist, who is always available to answer any questions from our guests. We make every effort to give guests all the information they need to collect keys from our lockbox if they arrive when the office is closed, and are typically given praise for our efficiency. It sounds like we did not exceed your expectations, would always appreciate the opportunity to make it right.
The team working for at Home in Key West, Inc was a pleasure to work with. All correspondence was timely, informational & friendly. I could call and speak to someone at any time to ask a question, which I appreciated. The condo was described accurately in the review and was perfect for our four adult guests. The pool was steps away from our back porch, and we enjoyed it daily! The condo was 2 blocks to Duval Street & a short walk to Fort Zachary Taylor Beach, the Ernest Hemingway Home, Truman's Little White House & other great restaurants & bars! If we go back to Key West, we will book with at Home in Key West, Inc again for sure!
We had a great stay. House was clean and decorated nicely. The smoke alarm did keep going off in master bedroom every time the power went out, which during our stay was twice in the middle of the night. Alarm was located 10 to 12 feet from the floor and we had no way to stop alarm except use broom and stand on bed to locate button in the dark. We called emergency number, but were told nothing they could do. We hope that is fixed because we loved back porch with all the plants. Some chairs on front porch would be fun also.
