The location is perfect-the price was excellent. However, the house was filthy when we arrived. I had to clean so much during our stay. There was a thick layer of dust on everything. Carpenter ants (I believe) were underneath the furniture so I had to sweep daily to clean up the sawdust mess. In addition, we didn't have a working...

Management response:

Sorry to hear that the house was not cleaned to your expectations - I wish you had said something during your stay - if the housekeeper did not do a proper job, my property manager would have gotten her back and made it right. Sorry for the inconvenience and I will make sure this does not occur in the future....

This property is lovely. With the large main house and several small cottages,it would be great for family reunions. The pool, jacuzzis and landscaping are all beautifully maintained. The only problem is the neighbors. The house next door, is the home to several chickens and roosters and at least one dog.

Management response:

Thanks to the Florida Keys ASPCA, the neighbor has been told to remove/ uncage the roosters and chickens; and the owner has been told to unchain his dog, allow him to run, and give him some attention. Unfortunately pets are at the mercy of their owners, and people that cannot properly care for them, should not be allowed to own...

I rented The Main House at Bahama Gardens for a family vacation of about 10 days over Thanksgiving. There were 5 of us, myself, my husband, two adult sons and one son's girlfriend. The location was absolutely perfect. The house was very adequate for our needs and because none of the other houses on the property were rented, we had...

About the neighborhood
The neighborhood is alive, dynamic, and surrounded by Key West History - unquestionably the most intact Old Town Key West neighborhood on the island. There are excellent restaurants within easy walking & biking distance, and Duval Street is only 2 blocks from the property - close enough, yet far enough away! Ft. Zachary Taylor, located only 2 blocks to the west of the property, is a National Historic Park and boasts the nicest beach with the best sunsets on the island.
Getting around
The best way to get around Key West is on a bicycle, which we have on the property available to our guests for a nominal fee - no need to rent bikes at an offsite location. Keep in mind that the island is only 2 miles by 4 miles, and during season, its much easier to park a bike than a car! (...and a little exercise is not such a bad thing)
Car not needed
