Papa's Hideaway was exactly that! It was hidden right in the heart of downtown, easy walking to anything you want! The rooms were great and spacious for our 6 couples. Highly recommend!

The grounds were very tropical and relaxing. The House was clean and accommodating.

Great place for large group to be together yet have their privacy. Beautiful landscape makes you feel you have you own private oasis yet close to all the action. Clean and had everything we needed.

Loved the location and the layout! Walking distance to beach and nightlife. Deducting a star because there was quite a serious ant problem in the main house (ants crawling all over the bathroom wall and in the living room-at least they weren't roaches though!); there was a used band-aid on the steps going into the main house when I arrived on the property (not cleaned thoroughly?); and an array of strangers helped themselves onto the property while we were having breakfast outside and enjoying the poolside (exterminator, pool cleaning service, and neighbors who claimed they have access to the pool). The strangers thing wasn't that big of an issue because everyone was friendly enough but still--strange. The kitchen was stocked with coffee and dish soap, nothing else like salt and pepper though. Beds were comfortable and A/C worked great. I really enjoyed my time there and would definitely go back.
Manager response:
We are happy to read you enjoyed your stay, KR! Pest control has been to the property to take care of the ants. The home next door has the same owner as this property, and they do have access to the pool. Thank you!

We had a large group from all over the country come in for my hubby’s 50th birthday. We rented the whole property and loved it. It allowed the whole group to enjoy each other’s company by having shared meals and games & live music by the pool. The main house was comfortable and cute. Expect that it will some quirks as it is a ‘seasoned’ property. It was clean inside and out and the pool area is kept up, with a beautiful tropical environment. We did max out the sleeping, which meant that we had couples on pull-out couches. I must include that these were not the most comfortable. But again, just go into it knowing what you are getting.

I sent 2 emails to Vacasa ahead of the trip, which were not returned. However, I got a personal phone call the day before my check-in. Also, we didn’t have enough gas for the grill so I called the same number back and a live person answered immediately, was courteous, and within 20 minutes, 2 new tanks arrived.

This is definitely a wonderful property. We enjoyed our stay completely.

We were a group of ten adults celebrating our 50th birthdays and this property was the perfect fit! Amazing landscaping, ample outdoor seating to gather for drinks, snacks and grilling, and the pool was awesome. The beds were comfortable and the location was ideal - very close to Duval. Definitely walking distance to everything. Highly recommend this property!

We were a group of 14. The compound was perfect. The pool pristine and plenty of room. Management was very attentive and responsive. Everything was great!

We loved everything about Papa’s Hideaways. We were a family of 16 that vacationed for a week celebrating 21st bdays and graduations. Very roomy, the pool was amazing. The only downfall I wold say is the iguanas messing all over the property but it didn’t stop us from having an awesome time. We would absolutely come back and rent Papa’s Hideaways again.

We had a group of college friends stay for a long weekend and Papa's Hideaway was perfect for our group. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, the private pool was fantastic, and we were nice and close to Duval street. We'd definitely recommend to any large groups that are looking for a quiet but spacious place in Key West.

Unreal. The iguanas, location, amenities and atmosphere were perfect... and did inmention the iguanas?! Best rental ever for a large group. We have 18 people for a bachelor party and it was perfect

We had a group of 19 and this property did the trick for us. It’s extremely well taken care of. Housekeeping was awesome and they provide plenty of linens. Vacasa was a pleasure to work with and made everything from check-in to check-out simple and straightforward. The location was perfect, just far enough from the main part of Duval Street where you can still walk to everything. I would recommend this property if you are renting the entire thing, but personally I would find it a little awkward to only rent one of the rooms.
Laura D. Oct 2018
Absolutely perfect location and setup for a large group. We will definitely be back!
Robert M. Oct 2018
We rented the entire "complex" with 5 families for a wedding, it was perfect! The entire rental process went smoothly, the units were clean and perfect for what we needed. We had a couple of small issues during the stay and they were there quickly to assist us. It's peaceful at night, yet close enough to the "action" of Duval Street. If you like walking it's perfect and if you don't it's perfect too as there's a free Duval Loop trolley stop right outside your door to catch a ride! We'll be back for sure!

We rented out the entire property for a weekend bachelorette party and it was the perfect size and location. Smooth check in process and the main office was very responsive.
John L. Aug 2018
I had a group of friends get together in the keys. When we arrived at the property we could not believe how amazing it was. Had the perfect combination of privacy and shared space. The main house was great cooking in the kitchen and serving people lunch and breakfast. We also had a few barbecues outside around the pool. The environment is perfect for the keys. Very relaxed. The attention to detail in the paradise is something. It was also a short walk to the southern most point and easy beautiful walk to nearby bars. My group couldn't have had more fun and we know the property made it all possible. We will be back. Thank you.
Judith M. Aug 2018
The house is situated so you could walk to almost everything I wanted to see.
Teena F. May 2018
We were in Key West for our son’s wedding. We were looking for somewhere that would accommodate our extended family. Papa’s Hideaway was the place! We had family come in from various states & here we were able to all spend time together. The “compound” was the perfect place for a large group. We were able to host a luncheon as well as our son’s rehearsal dinner there. We would highly recommend Papa’s Hideaway!

I Took a trip with 16 girlfriends and we rented out the whole property. We had a great time! Plenty of space and it was great having our own private pool and space to hang out. IT was a short walk to the beach and duval street but also close to the duval loop bus stop if you would rather catch a ride. WE were sad to leave. Thanks so much for making our stay wonderful

We had a group of 6 couples. We stayed from the 2nd Dec to the 6th 2017. While the location is a bit away from the busy part of town we rented golf carts which were not exactly cheap, you could rent bikes much cheaper but we had several people with bad knees. We did find out that there is a new free bus route called the Duvall loop which has a stop right near papas. The place itself was great, my wife and I stayed in the two bed cottage with another couple in the other bedroom both have their own bath. The cottage was nice, has a living room area and a full kitchen which we did not use except the coffe maker and fridge. The beds were good in all the units as all said they were very comfortable.
I can’t speak for the other four units on other things as I did not go in them but no one complained about them.
The pool was awesome to come back too and take a dip in the heat of the day. There were several iguanas too watch and clean up after !!!! A minor inconvenience for the entertainment.
The place is great for a large group like we had, we had the place to ourselves so we used the outdoor area quite a bit. We didn’t use the grill but if we go again next year we are planning on cooking a few meals although that might be tough as there are many great restaurants to choose from.
This place isn’t the Ritz but is nice and well kept. If you are looking for perfection this probably isn’t your place, that isn’t meant to be an insult but I’ve read many reviews of other places where people nit pick every detail if you are like that go elsewhere. We felt that it was a good value especially for privacy for a big group.
