Near the Downtown, but quied. Enough Place in the House and Private Parking

We’ve stayed here 2014, 2016 and 2019 so we’ve seen positives and negatives first hand. Vacasa by far is better than previous realty company and maintain property. Good location, half block from Duval and Blue Macaw/Rams Head, block and a half from Blue Heaven (yes you must go, thank me later), next door to Bliss, good food, about 4 blocks from Green Parrot, 2 blocks from Hemingway House and lighthouse, it’s ideal location. BUT, it’s time to replace a few interior items. The pullout sofa loveseat are so old you sink almost to the floor, the dishwasher has simply been removed and replaced with a few trash cans, the dining room table for 4 is down to 2 chairs, the kitchen bar top has 3 bar comfortable bar stools but be careful not to lean to hard as it needs to be reinforced. The bed is okay but showing wear, the pool is cleaned daily and patio area swept, heated pool, you get the occasional line that falls on tin roof that will wake you up. Bathroom floor by tub is starting to sink and moldy do future repair needed. So ideal location and if owner would make a few upgrades it could be solid 4-5 stars.

The location was perfect, close to everything right off Duval; the house is charming and loved the back patio and pool area. It was great having pool maintenance in the morning to clear the pool and housekeeping come once to change the sheets and bring fresh towels and linens.
Cons are it backs up to Bourbon St. bar so you have to listen to the music thumping all day until 4am. The two bedrooms have no privacy as the wall doesn't go up to the ceiling and there are no doors only curtains. The larger bedroom has a skylight so you are blinded as soon as the sun comes up.

We have been to Key West many times and have stayed at a lot of different places. We really enjoyed our stay at the Key Lime Calypso. Here are our pro’s/cons of our stay at the cottage.

Location: The location was excellent. Steps off of Duval and close to many restaurants and other attractions easily reachable by bike or walking. Fausto’s grocery store is a 5 minute walk and so is the CVS and Walgreens. The music from the bar close by was relatively loud at times but nothing that we couldn’t drown out once inside the cottage. We enjoyed the music while we laid by the pool during the day. Private parking was easy for our midsized SUV behind the gate. You may be challenged to get a full size SUV in the space.

Cottage/Pool: The cottage was clean and cozy. There are 2 bedrooms but the wall does not go all the way to the ceiling between the bedrooms so if you have 2 couples, there is no privacy. Also, there are only curtains for doors… Kitchen was equipped and the washer/dryer worked well. The Wi-Fi was ok but lost connection often. The furniture in the living room wasn’t very comfy to hang out on. The private pool and backyard were ideal. The pool was a good size, nice and warm and cleaned often. No bugs out back that we noticed. There were some HUGE iguanas that were on the roof at times that would crawl from one house to another (we thought it was humorous). I’m not sure what type of trees were above the house but they dropped their acorns often and would make a loud bang on the roof. Again, we thought it was comical and it didn’t disrupt sleep or anything. It might bother some people as it was a rather startling noise. The window AC’s cooled the rooms easily.

Rental Process: Super easy. We received the code to the front door a week ahead of time and it worked great (be sure to put a “*” at the end of the code they give you). That wasn’t on the directions. We had no issues during our stay so we didn’t reach out to Vacasa. The cleaning crew brought towels and there was someone that cleaned the pool/patio several times.

Great location. House was clean and just as advertised. Check-in was simple. Pool and patio were great. Would definitely stay there again next time. Highly recommend.

Superbe situation dans Key West, piscine privée géniale, barbecue top, place de parking super importante vu la situation géographique, proximité de Duval Street et de toutes les commodités,... mais.. literie très médiocre, mobilier en état très moyen, manque de vaisselle et d'ustensiles pour cuisiner d'où l'appréciation globale

The house location was excellent. Having own private pool was awesome. Washer and dryer inside the house was an added bonus.
Mark L. Jun 2019
The house, yard, and parking all satisfied our needs completely. The in/out process was great. Everyone we dealt with was helpful and friendly. Sure, there are things that could use little improvements but none of them were significant in any way. Still gets a 5 star rating. The music next door wasn't even that loud. Already planning next visit and will return to this house.

We loved this property! Private, but centrally located for our needs. Super easy check in/check out. The caretaker was friendly and helpful. We'll definitely rent this cottage again.

Having stayed at many vacation rentals over the last 20 years in Key West this is our new favorite! The backyard and giant pool were thoroughly enjoyed by our 3 kids. And they come clean it every morning and will tell you what tree the iguanas hide if you ask. It was great to have a designated parking spot that made locking up our bikes so easy and we just left the car all week. The location is perfect! Really what more could you ask for? We are a family of five (kids ages 12,9, and 6). We travel a ton and I think have reasonable expectations for accommodations and such. Things that could bother people but didn’t bother us...
The music from the bar behind/next door. We enjoyed listening to it by the pool. 80’s and 90s during the week and club on the weekend nights! You can’t really hear it inside over the air conditioning, which is very cold! Slept great. Having a washer and dryer was wonderful even though housekeeping came every morning. There isn’t much privacy as the bedrooms are only separated by a half wall and the doors on the bedrooms are glass. One has a curtain one does not. We just worked around it. And the decor was a little outdated but that isn’t important to us. But all in all we had the best time, we were sad to leave and will be back again soon!

Location is great. Cottage was perfect for our stay. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, cold a/c. Very convenient having a washer and dryer. Only negative is the music from New Orleans house until 4am. A/c fan mostly drowned out the noise. If you are a light sleeper we would suggest ear plugs or a white noise machine to mask the music. Pool was cleaned every morning as well as a visit by house keeping each day. We would definitely stay again!!

the location is good next to Duval street but the music next door until 2AM every night and some time 4AM make sleeping at night impossible.
Matthew B. Nov 2017
The location is fantastic. Just off of Duval. The outdoor heated pool and backyard were great to come back to everyday. There is a bar that is crazy loud behind the place. The noise didnt bother us but we were not in Key West for peace and quiet.
