What can you tell me about Center Court's...Verde Suite...

I'll be in KW on for the weekend on April 21-23rd and was wondering about these properties. I want to be somewhat close to Duval, and it looks like these three Center Court places are really nice. Anyone know personally?

My fiance and I stayed the "Tropical Hideway" (through Center Court) during our December '02 trip to Key West. It's on the same property with the Pineapple Retreat & the Seaport Suite. I didn't get to see inside the other 2 units, but I can vouch for the common grounds of the property and its location in Old Town.

The property is well maintained and in a quiet neighborhood. The pool is fairly large (by Key West standards) and since it's only shared with 2 other units (one of which has its own private dipping pool) we never saw many people using it. The landscaping on the property was extensive, and it was very convenient to have complimentary laundry facilities onsite. The daily housekeeping service was a nice touch as well. Even on the days that we put out the "no housekeeping necessary" sign, they still were nice enough to leave fresh towels for us!

I wouldn't classify the property as being "close" to Duval street. It was roughly 6-7 blocks away, which was about a 20 minute walk at a VERY leisurely pace for us. We never minded the walk - we felt more like locals by staying in a primarily residential setting, and it was a nice change of pace to adjust our walking routes to tour through the surrounding neighborhoods on our way to/from Duval.

If you want, you can use a online service like "MapQuest" to show you exactly how far it is from the property to Duval St. Use the intersection of Frances St & Eaton St as your starting point, and the intersection of Duval St & Eaton St as your ending point. That gives you a straight-shot distance to Duval St, with Mallory Square being a block or so away from that ending point.

I liked our location for being so close to the some of the more "local" hangouts AND one of our favorite lunch spots - B.O.'s Fish Wagon. The added benefit of being away from Duval was how peaceful our neighborhood was. We could leave our French doors open in the mornings and evenings and the only sounds coming in were the rustling of the leaves in the breeze & the birds chirping. Very relaxing!
