“Beautiful Property and Incredible Location”
Reviewed February 2, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

people found this review helpful

We stayed at the Grande Dame in December for the Key West Film Festival. Our group consisted of three couples and 5 single guys, so we occupied the main house and carriage house. The home is beautiful inside and very true to the photos. There is a full kitchen on every level which came in handy for snacks. The bedrooms vary in size and some of them do not have a closet. There is also a large bedroom on the second floor that requires you to walk through a smaller bedroom unless you are accessing it from the outside porch which is what we did. The third floor is like a bachelor pad with a big screen TV, but the bed is a strange futon and the shower is very small. The pool and extra large hot tub are fabulous, but sun worshippers beware... the back yard got sun for a very small amount of time. Now this may be due to the time of year. I'm not a weatherman.

The location is fantastic!! We walked to all of the hot spots... Hemingway's House, the Southern Most Point, Blue Heaven, and of course Duval St. The guys all rented scooters for the week and they road them once. ONCE. There is a fantastic breakfast / lunch spot directly across the street called Sarabeth's. We started almost every morning there with omelets and mimosas.

Without question, we would stay here again. Typing this review makes me want to rally the troops very soon. Enjoy your stay!!

“Exceeded Expectations - Great Vacation Rental!”
Reviewed November 15, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

I stayed at the Grande Dame in Key West, Florida in mid October with 11 other late 20 something guys for a bachelors weekend. The house exceeded the high expectations we had going into the weekend. Before booking we utilized the Grande Dame's website. The website provided us a virtual tour aided by photos of the massive complex, the pictures were very nice, but after being in the house, the pictures didn't do it justice.

There was a guest house behind the main house adjacent to the pool and hot tub. There were three stories of rooms/bathrooms/kitchens - all of which were clean and spacious. There was a laundry unit in the second floor which was conveient.

The house sits just a block away from the world famous Duval Street. The Bahama village is within walking distance. The southernmost point of the U.S. and Hemingway's house are walkable - but rather far from this location.

If I were to go to Key West again with a large group of people - I would do everything I could to return to this house.
