I booked accommodation at Westwinds through the internet and so I didn't know what to expect, except for the pictures on their website. The friendliness of Westwinds was first apparent in my email questions before my stay. Susie was extremely helpful with my queries and very patient with my uncertainties. When the taxi dropped me off at Westwinds in the dark I felt I was immediately in an oasis, and as I climbed the steps of the elegant Victorian porch I felt completely at ease. I found my key left exactly where Susie said it would be and I felt at once at home climbing the stylish staircase to the graceful landing .... and when I opened the door to room 103, I gasped in wonder. It was Perfect! Thence my week of complete satisfied bliss started. I settled into that light, airy and comfortable room with its attractive wicker furniture, bright bedspread, colourful pictures on the walls and quietly unobtrusive air conditoner, just like it was "home". My room was in the main house of the compound and I felt so elegant in such attractive and stately surroundings. Walking to breakfast each morning was pure heaven ... along paved walkways and through tropical plants to the succulent poolside buffet. Two areas of attractively adorned tables were set out for us to enjoy our meal of obviously very fresh fruit, toast, bagels and pastries accompanied by tea, coffee and fruit juices, with the added luxury of daily newspapers for our pleasure. Kind and friendly staff were on hand to help with any problems and there was always a gardener busy with the pool and foliage for our benefit. Nothing had been missed for our ease, from the laundry/ice maker room to the comfortable lounge and library areas. Poolside was clean, neat and quiet, except for the tropical noises of crickets and birds! Housekeeping services were prompt and efficient and kept me fully stocked with the necessities of soap/shampoo/cups/toilet paper, as well as keeping my room clean, neat and tidy. My bed was not only attractive with its wicker headboard and beautiful coverlet and shams, but extremely comfortable with good quality sheets and pillows. My bathroom was comfortable too, leading from the room through a sliding door and comprising a large shower with a built in seat, commode and a large sink with nicely appointed fixtures. The elegant room, quiet neighbourhood and peaceful house lent for very relaxing and restful nights at Westwinds. The no young children, no pets and no smoking rules made it extremely comfortable for me. And the location is perfect with just a few short blocks' walk to busy Duval Street, to the piers or to the beach. No other word for it but .....pure BLISS! The staff at Westwinds would go out of their way to be of help and it was no trouble, for instance, to provide me with an umbrella when it was raining. On more than one occasion I was assured by Management that the staff would do everything they could to make my stay comfortable and I was only to ask for anything I needed. Which wasn't much, because the Managemet and Staff at Westwinds have thought of everything! If you are looking for a pleasant, pleaceful place to stay in Key West in a quiet and elegant neighbourhood, then this is IT!
