After coming here for a lot of years and it being our favorite place to visit, It is sad that this place was sold and taken over by a group that just doesn't care. When you stayed here, Kay, DJ and the rest of the staff made you feel like it was you home. Now that it was taken over... More

Received official email from the new owners confirming what was posted in a previous review, The email clearly states that the Clothing Optional pool policy ends starting Nov 1, 2014. There were so many positives about the property, but this is a significant feature and now that its gone, I feel like Tripadvisor should reset the ratings for this property... More

Stayed in the Pool House street side. Really enjoyed sitting on the front porch on quiet Center Street in the evenings. Room was very clean and decorated nicely. Just steps from the pool. Pool area was also well kept and everyone we encountered was friendly. Highly recommend you make arrangements for parking in advance with one of the properties parking... More

Lucked up on this little gem by accident and will definitely be our go to place for lodging in Key West. Just steps from Duval with easy access to the CVS on Truman and a straight shot down Simonton to the Bight area. DJ and company have an excellent arrangement and although the pool is small it is perfect for... More

Great place to stay whether for a weekend or longer. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff and right around the corner from mid-town Duval. Private pool is clothing optional for the adventuresome traveler. Many hip bars away from the crowds. Do give it a try.

This vacation rental is just a great value for the money. The housekeeping staff (Vanessa) was wonderful. Steps to a private enclosed pool from your room. Everything you need is there, hairdryer, iron, plastic cups for the pool area. The outdoor shower is incredible too. More than adequate pool seating (although you will be in the pool floating on pool... More

I've stayed there a couple of times, the pool is very nice and DJ and the other staff are great. Every time i've stayed there the A/C units had black mold on the slats and they never changed them, and they asked me to make the bed once? $200 a night i don't make the bed sorry.

Alex, I sincerely apologize for any issues that you might have had while staying in one of our rooms. I will have our maintenance man do a thorough cleaning of our air conditioners immediately. It is obviously unacceptable to have any kind of mold in them. I also apologize for the miscommunication in the bed issue. We have housekeepers for... More
