We booked this hotel a little last minute, but we were absolutely thrilled with everything! There were fresh flowers in the room, everything was spotless. The air conditioner worked great, there was a nice full kitchen, and it was really cozy.
One thing I've learned when you read these reviews is that you can't take people's word for everything unless you know what type of lifestyle/accomodations they are used to. My husband and I definitely l ike to travel in style, and I'm sure we could have spent a fortune on a big beach front condo or a giant hotel, but we preffered to stay somewhere a little more cozy, with more personality, and comfort, and then just spend the money doing more fun stuff! So for us, this place was great, and we still didn't feel like we were lowering any sort of living standard whatsoever! In fact, this place seemed to really personify the spirit of Key West. We loved it!
The backyard has the most gigantic Poinsiena tree that was just bursting with flowers, and there was a cute little cat that came and lounged on the front porch. One thing that might have been a little nicer is the bathroom/tub/getting ready area- pretty small and cramped, but it still was clean and served it's purpose. This place has everything you need for a nice stay- including a hot tub outside- although why anyone would want to sit in a hot tub in Florida is beyond me! LOL!
Getting around from this place was really easy- we just parked our car, and rented bicycles for the week- they came and dropped off and picked up the bikes- done!
We are a young-ish couple with no kids- and we like to get our drink on now and then, but we don't usually get too crazy- But when it's time to sleep, it's time to sleep- so the location of the house was perfect- far enough away from the center of things, that it was really nice and quiet- but close enough that it wasn't a long haul from all the stuff we did. (I will say, however, that we spent many a night aimlessly pedaling around the neighborhoods, because we kept getting lost... couldv'e been the alcohol....:) All in all, we couldn't have been more pleased- it fit our requirements wonderfully, and we are looking to come back and stay again in September of this year.
