Vacation Rental Summary
There were 10 - 12 of us that stayed at the Victoria House. It was everything you could ever want. There was enough room for everyone. The layout of the 3rd floor was not as private but we worked around it. the outside area was great- we spent 95% of our time out back and was very nice having access to the kitchen from the outdoor eating area. It was also nice having the extra fridge and tv outside especially for the guys during March Madness. We absolutely loved the house and the location. The realtor at Home Key West was great to work with - check in and out was great and any concerns we had were answered immediately.
The private sleeping areas, and large gathering tables were the highlight of our weeks vactaion. The house was conviently located near most attractions and well appointed. The home was historic and certainly had the Key West charm we were looking for. However, if you pay top dollar for a rental, it is expected that all appliances be in working order, or at least the renters should be informed and compensated if they are not. We had some concerns with the upstairs TVs only receiving one channel, one oven was not working, as well as one washer and dryer.
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We understand your point about appliances not being in working order and did everything we could to accommodate you. There is one TV in the house that can only be used with DVDs; there are 5 other TVs in the house. Visiting/living on an island has its challenges ie; not having access locally to replacement parts. The parts for the oven were on the way; we set up a countertop oven for your use. The parts for one set of washer/dryer were also on the way; there was another fully functioning set of washer/dryer to use.
All appliances have since been repaired.
this was a dream home. absolutely beautiful and so much space. The home was inviting and very comfortable. Everyone had their own room and privacy. Very easy check in and out. Didn't want to leave this extrordinary home and come back to reality :)
We just enjoyed a 4 night stay at the Victoria House with our 4 grown kids and their spouses. Didn't see another place that we wished we had looked into. Other than an upstairs bedroom that was slightly open to the stairway, which we adapted to easily, the house was perfect for our stay. Close enough to walk to anything we wanted to go to. We will plan to return.
The home was great (loved the pool and hot tub) and the location was even better. At Home In Key West was awesome to work with as well.
I rented this house for my extended family when my sister got married! We had a perfect time. The pool and hot tub were awesome. The house is breath taking. Parking is on site. My sister got ready here and we took photos on the spiral staircase outside. This house was a priceless part of our wedding/family reunion. We were not disappointed about anything. It was better than we imagined.
A large group of us stayed here for a big birthday weekend and we had a blast. Everyone was very nice. The house was great. There was lots of room and very clean. We had everything in the house that we needed! We all were very pleased. We will rent it again soon!!!
We rented this home for my 40th birthday - 8 adults, mostly couples; the home was absolutely fantastic! This home has so much character and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Every couple had a private king suite with private bath; the beds were incredibly comfortable! I would highly recommend this house for groups of friends or families. The outdoor dining area was where we spent most of our time, day and night. The kitchen has everything you need, and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Me and my friends loved this home, and look forward to visiting again in the very near future.
What a great house! This house was everything we wanted. Really clean and the back pool and spa are great. We have already talked about booking it again! At Home Key West did a great job!! Thanks!
We (10 of us) stayed at the Victoria house for a week to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Six adults and 4 teens, and in spite of the rainy weather all week, we had a wonderful time. It is a great location, and has everything you could need provided with the house. We asked for a can opener, and very quickly, a new electric can opener was delivered. The beds were very comfortable and more than enough dishes and cookware were prvided. The pool was not quite as big as we expected, but most of us preferred the hot tub anyway. Couldn't ask for a better spot!!
The house is perfect for a family and/or group. The kitchen is well equiped and there are plenty of bathrooms, bedrooms, etc so all are comfortable. The air conditioner works very well on all levels of the home so sleeping was good. The backyard is great for outdoor activities and very private. Our only disappointment was how noisy the street is way into the night but that is location and nothing can be helped about that.
The house was even better than the pictures. I would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful home! The updated bathrooms and kitchen were lovely. When the outdoor grill did not work properly, a call to the management resulted in an immediate replacement.
The location of our home was perfect for the activities we planned. My husband and son went fishing daily and it was just a short drive to the marina. We were able to walk everywhere from this home. It was a great trip.
