“Lovely spot off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

people found this review helpful

My husband and I spent 10 days here in August and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The view from our balcony was great and was one of the reasons why we picked the spot. The apartment complex has plenty of parking and you get an assigned spot in the covered, open air garage. This complex is not down town and is walking distance to only a few restaurants, so be prepared to bike or drive everywhere you go. We had a car, and drove most places--which meant paying for parking most days.

PROS:
great view!
Master bedroom is large and spacious
2 bathrooms--I also liked how the master bathroom had a door between the shower/toilet area and the sink area as it made getting ready in the morning easier
kitchen had the necessary appliances
beach towels provided
washer and drier in the apartment
free wifi
nice pool--rarely crowded and open 24/7

CONS
*No blinds/curtains on the balcony windows. We had to close the hurricane shutters if we wanted living room privacy. Basic curtains would have been nice
*We had two inspections while there--fire extinguishers and fire safety walk through. Each inspection happened at a different time and we had a 2 day window for each of them. I know this is scheduled by the town, and not the rental company, but the first inspection that happened was the morning after we arrived (exhausted) and I was still in my nightgown and had to wake my husband up for them to come in! Pinpointing the day and time of the inspections would have been nice.

“So perfectly relaxing!”

I would just like to thank the owner of this rental property. After reading the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. It was absolutely perfect! My husband, my daughter and I stayed at this property for 10 days and loved it. It was very comfortable, accomodating and the location was just what we were looking for. We loved Smathers Beach across the street. However, we went down the street going north and we were completely away from any crowd. There were really not too many people there at any time. We went to Fort Zach beach one day as we had read in reviews that i was a much nicer beach. I have to disagree! We loved Smathers the best. Yes, there was seaweed around the edge, but we walked through the seaweed out to a sandbar and spent the day lounging with rafts on the sandbar. Perfectly clean, clear and beautiful! We loved being away from Duval, but close enough to get there is a few minutes. The unit had everything we could possibly need. It was very clean and we appreciated that! Thank you and we hope to be back soon to visit Key West!

Liked best: I loved the location!
Liked least: I would say that the beds in one of the bedrooms were not too comfortable. Other than that, we loved it.
