This place is very comfortable, and was very pleasing and calming to stay many days. But the best part overall is it’s prime location. I also enjoyed many many hours on the huge balcony.
Gregg H. Apr 2022
Balcony overlooks Front Street so you can relax and people watch on your down time. The beach is across the street, maybe two blocks. Very close to the fishing charters, sunset sails and dinner cruises. Only a couple of blocks from Duvall and Mallory Square.
Stephanie J. Apr 2022
Amazing location! Close to Duval, Mallory Square & Historic Seaport. Loved the wrap around porch, amazing for people watching! Make sure to get coffee & filters, none were left. If you are a light sleeper, be prepared for Mr. Rooster that roasts in the tree outside bedroom window. He starts crowing about 1:00am & don’t stop still about lunch 😂 There is no overnight parking close by so don’t rent a car or golf cart unless you want to pay $40 a day & have a 15-20 minute walk to get to car. There is scooter parking on street in front & also parking but most be moved by 11:00pm plus is $40 for 12 hours.
Manager response:
Stephanie, we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. Please know we strive to provide every guest with a relaxing stay and often the surrounding noise is out of our control. We are sorry for the impact this had on your visit. The parking information is listed in the home description under parking notes and can also be found in your confirmation email as well as the check-in email. There is no designated parking for this unit and street parking is on a first serve basis.

We absolutely LOVED r stay @ Yru property in Key West❤️ It was very clean wen we arrived!! Location,Location,Location!!! We definitely would stay @ Frontier Flats in the future👍
Rochelle L. Dec 2021
A short walk from everything fun in Key West. A functional and clean apartment on the second floor above retail shops, there is lots of light and views for people watching below. Other than having some difficulty in getting the access key at checkin, our stay was very smooth.
Nathan P. Dec 2021
The Frontier Flat is in the perfect location! Duval street is a block away, and the harbor where you can catch a sunset sail/lots of restaurants. Two cuban coffee queen locations within walking distance. We did not rent bikes; the only uber we took was to/from airport and also to/from Louies Backyard restaurant.
Tip: leave bathroom fan on overnight (sometimes you can hear people walking home late night).
Home is very clean and wrap around deck is incredible people watching!
Kelly L. Nov 2021
Comfortable clean, nice view of Front St and steps away from all the action.
Ali D. Sep 2021
I just can't even explain how and what a wonderful time we had at 524!!! Location, Location, Location. The place was clean, comfortable and just right for a Gal Pal get away. I did notice the place came with a kitchen, lol. 5 ***** experience. We definitely will be back to this hidden gem.
The only issue is the key situation, please install a keypad door entry to make it easier for your guests.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Ali! We are glad you enjoyed the home and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We look forward to hosting you again!
Isaac C. Sep 2021
Spacious, clean and great location
Tim F. Aug 2021
Very nice place and convenient to where all the action is. We had no problem finding close parking.
ryan c. Aug 2021
Location was close to everything you need.
kim s. Jul 2021
Cons: For years now reviews have been mentioning the pullout couch and how bad it is. Well I stayed two years ago and it was horrible for another couple w us that had to sleep on a 3” thick worm out pull out w bars in their backs. Just stayed and still the same cheap, now even way worse furniture there. I couch has NO COMFORT LEFT. My husband described it as sitting on the floor. The place is fully booked and no reason that management could not address this!
Pros: love this little place!! Close to all the action and well stocked. They supply starter kits, soap for laundry, dishwasher, coffee, packs, shampoo conditioner and toilet paper etc. The washer/dryers is a wonderful plus. Love sitting on balcony people watching. Perfect for my husband and I. This is my go to spot and will definitely stay again but please please replace furniture!
Manager response:
Hi, Kim! Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. Please know we take guest comments very seriously and work hard to address and correct existing issues for future guests. We are happy to confirm that a new mattress for the sofa bed has been installed. We hope we can see you again soon!
Robin Q. May 2021
The most important thing for me is that the unit is very clean. This property met that criteria. No complaints. They even leave you a laundry pod if you need to do a load of clothes. They leave you shampoo, conditioner, soap and dish soap. Everything we needed was in the unit. We would rent again.
Dale W. Apr 2021
Location, location, location! Plus there was a balcony that looks out over Front Street, for people watching or listening to the music from the near by restaurants during your down time.
Jeff P. Jan 2021
we liked the location. It wasn't too far to walk to most attractions and dining.
Pamela W. Dec 2020
This condo is located steps from Mallory Square and Duval Street. The kitchen is equipped quite well. The balcony overlooking the street is ideal for people watching. The king bed was comfortable and the bedroom was spacious.
Kristin B. Dec 2020
This was a great condo. A block away from Duval Street and all of the action. Loved the bright, airy Key West colors of the condo. Great patio to sit outside and people watch.
Jennifer P. Nov 2020
The condo was exactly what was described in posting. The outside balcony was big seeing feature for me, unfortunately with tropical storm, was not able to enjoy as much as would have liked. Great location for bars, restaurants, Duvall st and tue docks. The directions for access were provided prior to arrival and no issues inside. Be aware if planning to cook in, this is not like an airbnb with miscellaneous cooking supplies (salt, pepper, seasonings, olive oil, cooking spray) in the unit. You would need to bring those.
Harry S. Nov 2020
My wife and I were a little leary about booking thru Vacasa because we had always used VRBO or AirBnB but what a wonderful surprise...The Frontier Flat was better than it appeared in the rental pictures. The Flat is large, bright and airy. It was spotless and contained everything you could possibly need (wine and champagne glasses, laundry soap for the washer, dish soap for the sink, dishwasher pods, brand new coffee maker with coffee packets, iron and ironing board, shampoo, conditioner, TP, and all kinds of dishes, glasses and serving pieces). There was even a vacuum cleaner if you are so inclined. The long front balcony was absolutely perfect for sitting and watching all the people wonder by or to just sit an enjoy a good book. The Flat is on Front Street so it centrally located to everything. We were so happy with our stay that we tried to stay and book another 4 days but someone else had already booked those days; we were so disappointed. The contact people were super friendly and efficient and they have a 24 hour hot line in case you have any questions or problems. We highly recommend The Frontier Flat and Vacasa to anyone looking for a fabulous place to stay and we will definitely use Vacasa the next time we are looking to book a Getaway!
Codie P. Oct 2020
The location was perfect for exploring all Key West has to offer. Would highly recommend this condo, and plan to stay again next year.
Diane S. Jul 2020
Can’t beat location! Our 5th stay at Frontier Flat! The unit is in need of some TLC! Don’t think about sleeping on sofa, we bring blow up bed! Stove only has 2 working burners of 4! Coffee table falling apart! But spotlessly clean! Will book again for location!!
Manager response:
Diane, we are so delighted that you stayed with us for a 5th time! We appreciate you! We are also glad for your feedback and have passed it to the local manager for further review. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Monique O. Jun 2020
This flat is in the best location and prefect for our needs. Will come back again!
HUNTER B. Jun 2020
Really enjoyed the stay at Frontier Flat! Great location, right near a small beach and Mallory Square. Lots of food options around, too. No dedicated parking spot, but there is an overnight lot down the street. Highly recommend.
Jim G. Mar 2020
Very nice place with a great location, this was our second stay at the flat and enjoyed it both times.
Robert F. Mar 2020
Loved the location! We visit Key West every year in March and got married in March 17, 2014. I have always rented from Key West Vacation Rentals and the service has been great.
Don And Deb P. Mar 2020
2 blocks from all the action, the location was all we could hope for. Pleasantly appointed, easy to get to from the Key West Express ferry. Great value.
mary a. Feb 2020
Perfect location! Very clean; comfortable king bed. A/C was a godsend!! Had a …wonderful 2 weeks
Sylvia E. Jan 2020
Stay here if you want to be close to Duval Street and Mallory Square and the beautiful harbour walk. Close enough to all the action yet relaxing and quiet at night. View from the large balcony was entertaining.

Patti O. Nov 2019
Location, King Bed, washer/dryer, wrap-around balcony, kitchen (although we never cooked) and private entrance. Really great place to stay and the management company was great in helping us retrieve an ipad we left on a balcony table.
Keith G. Oct 2019
Spotless, just as nice as in the photos. TV also in the bedroom. Plenty of room. Appliances are first rate. Bed is very comfortable. Extra sheets and towels provided. Great views, chairs to sit on the balcony. Bathroom spotless and well equipped. Really can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this property. For the money, it can't be beat.
Damen D. Oct 2019
I took my fiancé down to Key West for her 30th birthday and let me tell you the Frontier Flat did not disappoint. The location couldn’t have been any better. Every day I was able to walk 30 seconds to Duval St. The apartment itself was clean, spacious, and set up very well. Having a balcony to have a night cap and wind down every night was excellent too. It was a short time we were down there but it has already been decided next time we go to Key West our first attempt at booking a room with be this same spot.
Angela B. Oct 2019
You can’t beat the location of this beautiful apartment. One and a half blocks from Duval and A&B Marina. Close enough to enjoy the bars and far enough to get away.
You spend you mornings on the veranda relaxing with a cup of coffee.
Unit comes with all you coffee needs. Also has a washer and drying with supplied laundry soap for you needs.
We are looking forward to coming back.
Robert H. Sep 2019
Can’t beat the location centrally located near the seaport, Mallory Square and Duval St.

Vacasa was easy to work with and even provided a small welcome gift.

It is loud in the mornings outside between the Rooster’s crowing and the street traffic outside. Also you have to walk up a flight of stairs to reach the flat. No elevator. As long those items won’t bother you this rental is highly recommended. You get twice the space of a hotel room for around the same price.
Harold T. Sep 2019
The unit was idea for a couple and location was ideal!! Clean and beautiful! Balcony overlooking front street perfect view of everything going on plus only steps away from Duvall street , marina , Mallory square! Washer and dryer is nice to do any laundry . Full size refrigerator with ice maker ! TV in livingroom and bedroom. We rented a scooter so we had scooter parking in front of building. Although being that close to the busy street can be noisy the other amenities made it worth putting up with the busy street ! We have stayed here twice and we would stay again!
Laura H. Apr 2019
This place is close to all of the action. We were able to walk here from the Ferry landing. We didn’t have a car. We rented bikes from Eaton’s which they brought to us and picked up. We were able to easily bike the whole island and return to our favorite spots a few times. The property was clean, and the staff were accommodating making check in and check out easy. We were able to put our luggage in the flat prior to check in while they were still cleaning so that we could start our vacation right away. We’d seek the management company again. They were excellent.

The place was very clean, and close to Duvall and the Marina! Loved it!
Cherylyn C. Mar 2019
Comfortable, quiet and affordable. Great location. Easy walking to shops, restaurants, etc. Will recommend to our friends and family.
Douglas R. Feb 2019
Nice place in a great location
Paul G. Feb 2019
We really enjoyed our stay here. Very clean! Bright and sunny, well appointed. Absolutely would stay again.

A few things that may help others looking to book this apartment.

When arriving if there is street parking pay for an hour to unload your car then go to the left (if looking at the building), turn right on Simonton, go two blocks to a private lot and pay 20 per day for parking and in/out all day privileges. Very short walk and way less money.
Finding the entrance...look at the store, go left to the edge of the storefront, small alley, door on right just before the silver gate is the entrance. Use your key in door and go upstairs, apartment on right once through door at top of stairs.

There are beach towels, sample sized shampoos (lots of them) paper towels, toilet paper and a day or two worth of coffee. There is a hairdryer in bathroom.

The apartment has lots of pots and pans, toaster, blender, ice maker, basically it is well stocked.

With no maid service if you are there a week you will need to wash towels, they provide you with a laundry detergent for a few loads. There are four sets of towels.

We loved the balcony, used it every morning and night. Perfect location, only steps from Duval.

Perfect choice for us! We will be back!
Janet M. Feb 2019
Location is great! Clean! Just need a new mattress on the pull out sofa!
Julie H. Nov 2018
Great location, just a few steps from Duval Street.
Energetic roster will greet you early in the morning but what the heck, it is Key West.
Steven B. Nov 2018
Perfect walking distance to Duval and marina. Nice and airy and open. Could do with a new couch and updated furniture but otherwise a great layout. The roosters and traffic will wake you early and the white shades do not block out the morning light so not great for those that like to sleep in but perfect for early risers!
Dawn T. Nov 2018
Place was neat and clean. Close to everything Key West. Owner was so nice me and my husband enjoyed talking with him. We would absolutely recommend this unit and will look to come back and stay again.
James M. Nov 2018
Great location!
Elaine M. Oct 2018
Loved the special touches such as artfully folded towels and museum like stairwell. Fabulous wrap around balcony.
The location is fantastic! Don't miss the Rum Distillery and Lagerhead food kiosk on the beach both within a 5 minute walk around the corner on Simonton St.
jason p. Oct 2018
Location to everything
Brian A. Sep 2018
Awesome location. Perfect for my wife and me. Only drawback was parking. Not cheap or convenient. Perhaps a deal could be worked out somehow to make parking one car possible. Otherwise, it was perfect. Walk out the door and you are in the middle of things

CHRIS W. Sep 2018
Great location, nice size and was just what we needed for a long weekend! Right off Duval, close to Rick's and Sloppy Joe's and of course Hogs Breath!
Michael S. Aug 2018
Location, location, location
Patrick R. Aug 2018
Great location, comfortable and well appointed. We would stay here again.
David C. Aug 2018
Clean. Great location. Close to all activities.
Aaron M. Jul 2018
This room was a block from Duvall st so it was close enough to the action without the noise! This slept 4 comfortably, with washer a dryer in the room! Great balcony for relaxing and watching the crowds! I would definitely go back!
Antoni G. Jul 2018
First off any renter has to be aware that some properties BY LAW cannot rent for less than a week. The FRONTier Flat is a transient licensed unit which we rented for 3 nights in July 2018. Off by a block from DUVALL it had access by foot to everything Key West without the pm noise or traffic. 2 blocks to the docks to go diving on boats from Captains Corner. 3 blocks to Mallory Square for sunsets... and a large 1 bedroom with full kitchen if you don’t want to eat out . What more can you want...other than a pool but in a July in a Key West daytimes too HOT for that

Peter R. Jun 2018
Amazing location, clean and bright, with everything except a pool and parking -- deserves 4-1/2 stars. Well equipped home away from home. Only issues were an uncomfortable sofa bed mattress and a noisy neighbor (business?) early in the morning (7:30) whose loud voice echoed in the halls and woke us up ... doesn't he realize people are on vacation? Great shuttle service available to/from airport and held our bags after check out so that we could enjoy our last day completely before going home. Fully-equipped kitchen, Wi-Fi, washer/dryer, etc. No one should consider staying in a hotel if this place is available ... if we return to Key West we would try to book here first.
Heather G. Jun 2018
Very clean, everything operated good. Good location
Mike V. Apr 2018
The Frontier Flat is a “diamond in the rough.” Folks walk by and don’t know it’s there. LOVED sitting on the balcony people watching. Perfect location to be able to go back and take rests. I highly recommend The Frontier Flat and have recommended to friends already. Until we see you again.....
Laurie R. Apr 2018
Loved the location. It was beautiful and clean.
We could pretty much walk anywhere. Would love to rent again.
Jim G. Feb 2018
The apartment was perfect for the two of us. Just about everything you want to do is close by. It can be noisy at night but we used a white noise app on our phone to sleep and it works perfectly to drown out the background noise from the street below .I highly recommend this apartment,

Frontier Flats was a great place to stay and the Vacasa staff provided excellent service! Fold out bed is not very comfortable.
Angela B. Jan 2018
Wonderful flat in the heart of Key West! Located one block from infamous Duvall Street. Flat was clean, stylish and roomy. Very much enjoyed the outdoor patio. Safe and secure. Key West at its best!
Bonnie B. Jan 2018
That doesn't describe a thing about me. So I definitely picked the wrong place to stay while in Key West. This is a two flight upstairs flat with 1 bedroom and a crappy sleeper sofa. Don't think 3 or 4 can stay here! The place is cute and clean and the pictures depict it honestly. Just know that this is a noisy place with tons of truck traffic, street sweepers, and trash trucks every morning. Don't plan to sleep in. Clean, well-ordered, with good staff and a good office. Love the easy app. I would try them again in a different location. $2,000 is way too much for 5 days.
Kerry M. Dec 2017
Small 1 bedroom apartment in an excellent location with a balcony. Expensive for the small square footage. Security was excellent. Kitchen staples (salt, pepper, coffee filters, etc.) should be provided.
Janie B. Dec 2017
Nice condo, fabulous location. Loved the balcony--great people watching place and was always in the shade.
Greg B. Nov 2017
If you are looking for a place with a great location for seeing Key West, clean living quarters, and a good nights sleep this is it.
