I am not sure I would have stayed at this location if I had read all the current reviews. We stayed in building A unit 307 and had a wonderful unit. We arrived late in the evening 9 pm. The security guard was very friendly, gave us an envelope with the keys, garage electronic card and list of instructions. Parking in the gated garage is simple. The elevators and the hallway in the elevator area is nice: concrete walls with simple modern paintings. The hallway to the unit worried us a bit; looks a little like a nursing home. However, when we opened the door to our unit we were so happy. Simple decorations, new furniture, tile floor throughout, an amazing balcony with table and chairs for 11 people. Living room and both bedrooms go out to the balcony. This unit has wonderful morning sun and shade in the afternoon. The view of the lush courtyard is amazing and you do have partial view of the Atlantic. The pool and the pool area were extremely clean, with lots of lounge chairs, umbrellas etc. The pool is 1/2 Olympic not full size but is still great and very well kept. We stayed for 5 nights and the area was clean every time. You can stay on the property or take a short 5 minute walk past the pool to the left and follow a trail that takes you to Smather's Beach. You need to take your keys as the gate is kept locked. Smather's Beach has kiosk with paddle boards, sail boats jet skis etc. There was a lot of seaweed and no waves, but the beach was fun. Easy snorkeling there. We also went to all the other beaches in Key West. Swimming at night and cooking on the various barbeque grills was a nice way to spend the evening and a great asset to this property. This property is an easy drive to all parts of the island, but yes you do need to drive and find parking if you want to go elsewhere. We found the guards every night to be friendly. We really had limited interactions with the management company as all was working. Our unit had new furniture, well furnished kitchen, plenty of towels for the beach and the bathrooms, extra linens, 2 flat screens, washer/drier. beach umbrella etc. We were very pleased with unit 307, the security staff, the staff in the management office and the location. We met three other families that have stayed at this property for three years in a row.
