Packer retreat is a great house. So great I am renting it in 2010. The layout and outdoor space is unusually large for Key West. And the home is very private and quiet. the location is within walking distance to Duval and White streets.

The home is beautifully decorated but needs to be "freshened" up. The sofas and carpets are dirty. the kitchen has very little equipment (1 pan, no serving platters...) the outdoor furniture is moldy, filthy and the cushins need to be replaced. The guest cottage is moldy. The grill was FILTHY and broken and once it broke, the owner sent over another filthy grill.

For the amount of money they are charging, this home needs an overhaul. I have decided to come back because the yard is large and i bring a pet. This home is ideal for dogs. PS. the master bed is held up by papaerbacks. Hope that is fixed in 2010
