Great property in convenient location
Amelia Home was great! We loved the house - it was larger than expected, big rooms, nice bathrooms, great kitchen with tons of dishes/pans. We enjoyed the pool everyday - it was a great size for our 4 guests to share and provided just enough shade to get out of the heat when needed. The location was walk-able to everything - Hemingway House, Duval, Mallory Square. We rented bikes just around the corner at A&M. We loved riding our bikes to the beach - make sure to go into West Martello Tower, which is now owned by the Key West Garden Club and is so well maintained! Check out Banana Cafe for breakfast, El Siboney for Cuban (call ahead for paella) and Nine One Five for upscale dining!
We rented the property at 605 Amelia for a family get together and were very pleased with our experience. Although I first saw the property on TripAdvisor, it did not take long to get in touch with the @Home Key West staff to make the booking. The booking was clear and efficient with excellent instructions for arrival. The property was exactly as depicted, clean and well maintained. Pool and landscape workers did their jobs Monday with little fuss. Kitchen was well equipped. We did have a twenty year old microwave give up the ghost on day 1, but @Home staff had appliance repair in on day 2, and had replaced the microwave with a new one on day 3. Beds were comfortable, washer and dryer conveniently located upstairs near bedrooms. Sheets and towels, including nice pool towels, were adequate in number and good quality . The private pool was the big selling point for me, and it did not disappoint. This was our first time in Key West, but I would gladly rent this property again. It is in a quirky residential/industrial block off of the bustle of Duval, but we walked everywhere we needed to go. There are some worthwhile restaurants very close by (Louie's Backyard, Camille's, El Siboney). There is some low level noise from the business next door in the morning, but the feral roosters on the street crowing in the morning are actually noisier, and hey, part of the charm. There is an off street parking spot in front of the front door, which is made kind of narrow by plantings on both sides. Best to back in when you park. Thanks to owners and to @Home Key West for making the property available.
First time in Key West. We were there for our son's wedding. The Amelia Home was the GREATEST! Clean, pool was awesome,kitchen well stocked, bedrooms large, and bathrooms well kept! Theresa and Samantha were very friendly and helpful! Noise was not an issue. Highly recommend!
