“The Only Place We Now Use”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

My husband and I always stayed at the Douglas House in Key West. Last year we decided to make a change and rent from someplace else. The decision was because we felt the Douglas house just didn’t seem to meet our needs and was starting to look run down and over charged. After looking a lot, we decided to rent from Key West Vacation Rentals, AKA Center Court. So far we have rented Caribbean Suite (awesome), Casa Cubana (awesome) and in June we will be staying at Southernmost Retreat and for August we will be using them again, we haven’t decided on what rental yet. Because of our 2 great experiences we don’t look anywhere else to rent. They have a great variety of properties and the cost is comparable if not better then a hotel.

The properties are well maintained and spot less. Also, a big plus is they don’t charge cleaning fees. Watch out when looking at other sites for those hidden fees that are really not necessary.

Craig, we always enjoy stopping by to visit you and the pups. We look forward to visiting you in June.

Keep up the good work. You have earned us as loyal clients.

Browse the site, and if you are not sure, call them. They are very knowledgeable about the properties they rent and most importantly they are honest.

Have been to KW too many times to count and stayed at a variety of places. But lately we have always come back to Center Court. They are actually part of Key West Vacation Rentals and have properties all over the island. Everything from a small room for two, to a private cottage with a hot tub and even entire homes that are perfect for groups and family vacations. Give them a try, you won't be sorry. They do have a very strict cancellation policy that requires payment up front with no refund if cancelled 30 days prior to arrival... so BUY TRAVEL INSURANCE!

Room Tip: For a couple check out the private cottages like Honeymoon Hideaway or Romantic Retreat...

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying in the Bonaire suite at Key West Villas. We had a wonderful stay. The accommodations were comfortable and homey and it was clean and airy. The location is beautiful and this unit was particularly lovely. It's so convenient to where all the action is in Key West and yet it's like a beautiful secluded tropical world unto itself. We would definitely come back and stay there again. Spending our vacation in the Key West Villas and the Bonaire in particular was wonderful and provided a great home base for all our Key West activities.

Thank you,

Gary Kupper

Room Tip: Bonaire was perfect for us. It is located off the main court and is quiet away from any street noise...

My husband and I have been to Key West three times, staying in different places each visit. This past June we traveled to Key West for our wedding and booked the Caribbean Suite through Center Court. We were extremely happy with the suite and the grounds over all. The villa was two floors and more then roomy- downstairs was the livingroom, kitchen with a full size table & chairs, and a half bath. Upstairs was a very large bedroom with a full bath (shower was even a good size) with amply closet space. There was airconditioning on both floors plus ceiling fans. Everything was beautiful, updated and very clean. The courtyard was large and wonderfully maintained, there are even birds (cockatiels & parakeets) on the grounds with a beautiful fountain. There is also a grill which we did use for a bbq one night. We had access to two pools, a family pool and an adult pool. Both very nice and clean, only downside is that the adult pool closed promtly at 6pm. Our accommodations were 1 1/2 blocks off Duval just off of Truman. Walk to everything was pretty easy. We have stayed in a B & B and also at the Crowne Plaza, Center Court is definately the best place we have stayed at thus far. The rates are more then reasonable and we will be back! They have accommodations in many areas of the island and all the rates seem good for what you get. The staff was very nice and accommodating with all our wedding and general requests. Last thing, be sure to read the cancellation policy! They do not issue refunds or discounts for any reason- weather or missed flights. Although, a lot of hotels have the same policy in KW.

Stayed here with 3 girlfriends and couldn't have asked for a better value. The room was clean, very comfortable, and in a great location. We slept four in the Bonnaire Suite very nicely.

We arrived at the Orchid Suite on Simonton and were quite happy with our accomodations. Ours was an upstairs efficiency apartment. The airconditioner had been left on for us which was greatly appreciated since we had driven from Va. Beach! The kitchen was well equiped for our needs with a full size fridge. Living room area was of good size and had plenty of seating. The bedroom was wonderful! We slept great on the comfortable bed with overhead fan which is ususual for me to get a good nights sleep away from home. We had two porches off of our apartment that my husband enjoyed every morning with his coffee. The Suite was in an excellent location in the 500 block of Simonton St., one block off of Duval. We parked our car and didn't move it for 4 days. We rented bikes for a 24 hour period which was wonderful for trips to Ft. Zachary Taylor and around town. This was my 4th trip to Key West and my husbands 1st. We will be back and will definately try to book this suite again.

We have stayed with Center Court for several years, and again we were not disappointed with our weekend stay at the Poolside Retreat. We went with another couple and the two bedroom bungalow was roomy enough for all of us. We loved having the kitchen so we could make breakfast and have snacks and drinks by the pool. The pool area was nice, and even though it is shared with another rental, we had great neighbors and enjoyed spending time out there. The pool was not heated, so we did not use it, but it was still fun to sit by and stick our toes in. The location was great and the onsite reserved parking is a super plus. If you haven't been to Key West before, be very wary of places where you are responsible for your own parking....it is very hard to find a spot, let alone one near your hotel or rental. The Center Court rental people were very accomodating and worked with us to get a great rate. There is Wi-Fi availabe in the room and we had no problems with connectivity our entire trip. That was a great way to keep in touch with friends and family without having to search to service.

We also enjoyed the small journal in the room. It was great fun to read about who had been there before us, things they had done (in fact there were some great tips for places to go that we wouldn't have seen otherwise!), and it was fun to write our own stories prior to our departure.

Key West has a charm that draws you back. Center Court shares this same charm and we will visit them again soon.
