“Location great, but unit is just average for the price”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I would not rent this unit again, but had a great time in Key West. The things I liked about Finn Key were (1) excellent location, walking distance to everything--the Truman annex is a peaceful & beautiful oasis with gorgeous landscaping, but close to all the lively restaurants, bars & attractions you'd want; (2) the unit is next to the pool, which was perfect for our young kids (4&6); (3) the master bed is so comfortable. However, these pros did not outweigh the cons: (1) we rented the unit because of the ground level patio & grill, but couldn't use it much of the time due to the leak from the upstairs resident and an entire day taken up by aC repairmen being stationed in our patio to replace the neighbors' AC; (2) ACs for both units are in the patio (about 4 feet from the dining table) and are very noisy so we rarely sat outside--it was not hot, but the upstairs neighbor ran his aC all the time; (3) the upstairs neighbor is openly hostile to renters, but expected us to accommodate him during our 1 week stay; (4) couch and rug were dingy--rug was so dirty the fringe was gray & filthy; (5) kitchen is so small only 1 person can fit; (6) units were shoddily built so very loud appliance/plumbing noises came from upstairs unit every night; (6) leak from upstairs onto this unit's patio took 3 days to resolve--a constant drip and puddle of water in front of the gate & grill were unsafe & inhospitable; (7) we were disappointed ahkw did not respond to our request for break on fees as a result of not being able to use our patio for an entire day due to planned replacement of upstairs' AC and inconvenience of leak into patio.

Thank you for taking the time to review our home. Housekeeping will certainly take care of the couch and rug if cleaning is needed.

It is always a balance to choose a perfect home away from home. It is desirable to live within the Old Town area of Key West because of the convenience to all the sights and attractions; that convenience comes with the price of living within the downtown area of a city -- noise, construction, neighbors, early morning deliveries, and in Key West, roosters!

We would welcome the opportunity to make your next visit more enjoyable, maybe staying a little further from Old Town.

Downstairs unit, great location, near the pool. The pipes rattled in our master bedroom every time the upper unit flushed the toilet, showered, or turned on the water. We got interrupted sleep at least three times a night. Moved to the guest bedroom to avoid the noise, beds were unbelievably uncomfortable...back to the Master. We didn't call for service because we didn't want service people in and we didn't want to move to another unit. (none were available that week anyway) Very noisy when the occupants upstairs walked around on hardwood floors. Loved the outside deck with the extended sun barrier. Couldn't believe how cheaply those condos were built. I guess you pay for the location. Have been to Key West dozens of times. Will likely go back to staying in a hotel.

“Sensational!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

At Home in Key West could have not been more helpful and professional. Great staff.
The condo was perfect, we hired bikes so everything was 5 minutes from the condo...Duval St., the beach.
We will be back, and hopefully get the same condo!
Only negative: the guy upstairs has a noisy a/c and washing machine!

“Key West”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

The two of us rented the Finn Key for a week in March. The after hours check in/check out went smoothly. The condo, location, pool, wireless internet all were great. We rented bikes for the week and had a wonderful time. The only issue was the upstairs noisy neighbors. There is no insulation and every time they walked across the floor, flushed, or ran water the noise was very loud and irritating especially during the night and early morning hours every day.

“Best location in Truman annex!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We were in Key West for Spring Break, and brought our two teenagers with us. We were so thrilled by the location, that we will definitely ask to stay at Finn Key when we return. The pool is just steps from the back door, you're close to Duval, and the beaches are an easy bike ride (be sure to rent bikes for the week)! The condo was very clean and comfortable.
