Everything about this place was great. It was clean, it had a cute little pool, very private and a great location to everything!! Parking next door was super easy and super close, we did have to pay for that but the guys were great about us being there for the week. I would highly recommend this place to a couple looking to have a great time in key west

This was within walking distance of everything. Loved that we could bring our 2 dogs and they got to enjoy their first vacation with us. Bed was so comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

Great location
Diana R. Mar 2020
I will stay here every single time, the location was amazing and the room was so clean. The shower was great too! It was so convenient!
Tammy M. Mar 2020
This place was really pretty great but there were a few issues. First, for the great parts: SUPERB bed and pillows!! Couldn’t say enough!! We even tried to find out what kind of pillows and mattress they were?! The place was beautiful and spotless when we arrived. The shower was VERY modern and AWE - SOME!! Two jet heads with a ton of pressure. My contact, Molly, through Vacasa was VERY prompt in addressing my emails and concerns - so NO issues with questions addressed and answered!!

Would definitely stay here again but......I would add some negative feedback that could be improved upon before we return. First off: the AirBnB listing listed dishes and silverware were provided, they were not! The picture of the Honey Bun on AirBnB showed a full size fridge but it was a mini fridge, although they surprised us with a microwave, which they originally told me was not provided when I emailed prior to our arrival. We were not prepared for all of that - so they just need to change the description for the Honey Bun room. Next, we had very little, if any, water pressure in the tiny bathroom sink - this is where we had to wash our dishes, when we finally got some. Not any easy job! Also, we literally had to wait almost a full day between showers for hot water 🚿 !! Lastly, we stayed for 13 days and we had to request twice to have clean towels and sheets and a light cleaning done while we were there - they refused us on our second request saying that they do not do this mid stay. My thoughts are if you are staying almost two weeks in a sandy and beach resort atmosphere, you need at least two cleanings and sheet and towel exchanges!! We only got one and we even had to request it to Molly, at Vacasa, after I called the house managers and they refused even one!

All in all it was a great experience, with a few hiccups!! I would rate it a 4/5!! The important things, like the comfort of the bed and pillows, was a 5/5, and the most important part! We will be back - thanks for the memories!! 😁
Manager response:
Hi, Tammy! Thank you for telling us about your stay here. We do clean a unit if a guest requests it, so we will look into this matter. We will be getting the photos of the home redone and posted on our listing as soon as possible. Maintenance has been scheduled to handle the water pressure and temperature issues. We hope to see you again!

The honey bun guest house was perfectly located near Duval Street walking distance of everything. Beautiful room felt like old Key West. The only downfall was hot water you need to take a quick shower. What we thought was a hot tub was a small pool with no heat. Other than that absolutely amazing would stay there again for sure.
Therese D. Feb 2020
This was super convenient to everything we wanted to do. Anyone we had contact with was pleasant and helpful.

Great location
Douglas C. Dec 2019
This room was clean and located in a great location. We could walk to everything. Instructions were easy to understand and follow.
Connie L. Nov 2019
The location was awesome...we did a lot of water activities. The room was cute, updated, and very clean. The only thing I would change in the room would be to add a dehumidifier. It seemed damp in the mornings. Other than that I was awesome!!!

Location, location, location! And clean, quiet, perfect!

This was the perfect little place for our 5-day trip. The location could not have been better. So close to everything (1 block from Duval and 2 blocks from the Wharf), but noise was never a problem. The room is small, but we didn’t expect to be in the room much so we weren’t concerned about the size. There is more room in the courtyard to relax if you need some quiet time. There were guests in the other rooms, but we never ran into anyone else. The bathroom was well done and my wife raved about the shower.
Our only concerns were the soft mattress (not great for a bad back) and the quality of the linens (sheets felt well used). In addition there is only one set of towels (standard hotel quality), we had read about this in an earlier review and planned ahead.
There is no parking and that can be tricky in Key West if you have a car to deal with. There is free street parking on Elizabeth, just make sure it is not labeled “resident” b/c the city will not hesitate to tow.

Close to everything!
Henry T. C. Mar 2019
Great location. Pleasant, easy to deal with rental agents.
Keith C. Jan 2019
Perfect location, very close to the action but quiet at the same time.
Ann-Marie G. Jan 2019
Great location. Very close to everything. Bed may need replaced soon as it wasn’t super comfortable but other than that it was fantastic!
michael n. Jan 2019
Great location in old key west area. Room was nice with a great shower. Convenient parking.
Chris O. Jan 2019
Nice little room with a courtyard and soaking pool (we were the only ones to use it). Great central location to Duval Street and the Historic Seaport. Rent bikes, it's the easiest way to get around. Great staff at the main office. Loved our stay!
casey p. Dec 2018
Close to everything. Very clean and secure. Nothing bad about this place. Better than expected.

Great location!!
Andrew M. Nov 2018
This is our second time staying in this unit. We will definitely be back. It is a great location, quiet, comfortable, and good value. Suggestion - replace the mattress on the bed (it is shot) and swap out the desk for a cupboard and counter top to add a basic kitchen with supplies. Otherwise, all good. Thank you, great job!
Keith W. Nov 2018
The staff at reception was great to deal with and the property was clean and comfortable.
Lee H. Jul 2018
This is the second year in a row we have stayed here. It’s clean, close to all the attractions (Duvall street) but off the beaten path enough that it’s not noisy. We will def be back.
Melissa F. Apr 2018
this place was okay, not great but not bad either. You are paying for location.
No amenities at all. The room was nice and clean. It lacked the Key West Charm that so many other places have.
Frances W. Apr 2018
We recently stayed in the Honey Bun suite. It's walking distance to almost everything. Great location. Super cozy and clean. I would definitely stay here again. The room does not come with a parking spot. But there is a pay by the day parking lot right behind the property that was easy to use.
Kathryn B. Mar 2018
Loved Key West!!! The Banana Foster House was in a PRIME location that made it easy to walk or bike everywhere.
Sean D. Mar 2018
We loved it. Thanks again
Laureen K. Feb 2018
The email received from your company had the wrong address when we checked in at the office which was at a different location they asked us why we would go to the other address after showing them the email they didn't seem very helpful however guided us to the right location the outside entrance was treacherous and unsafe for day entry and especially night entry. The location was Prime the hot tub was not working and most guests seemed to be lost requiring additional information as to the amenities for the community from other people staying. The room was nice the air conditioning cold the showers were done nicely but once you walked out of the room tree property lacked basic maintenance. If I could I would attach the video of the entry/exit as the picture would speak a thousand words.( get it cleaned up and see )
Manager response:
We apologize check-in was a little messy; we will make sure all information is correct. We will also advise the HOA of the other comments provided. Thank you!
Bernie Y. Feb 2018
We travel to Key West the same time every year and have stayed at many locations in the city. If you know the town like we do this unit cannot be beat. It is not large but has more than enough room for a couple and was close to all our favorite places. We had no noise problems and if there were other guests in the other units we never seen or heard plus having the gate that locks and making the inner court private is a plus.

The property where we stayed (Honey Bun) was okay: clean, comfortable, a very nice shower (except that the two showerheads are plumbed backwards, so that a clockwise turn on one gives you scalding water, and on the other, that same clockwise turn gives you icicles). But the customer service was severely lacking. The person who gave us the key to the unit failed to tell us that the entrance to our unit was actually not the address on the key, but rather a different gate around the corner. The parking situation was not fully explained (despite the fact that we asked), so very confusing; when we called to inquire about it after we reached the property, we were sent to three different phone numbers before finding someone who could answer the question. The "pool" was puzzling: it was not large enough to be a "pool", but the water was cold, so it was also not a hot tub. The wifi did not work, but by the time we hit this issue, we were worn out from trying to get answers, so ended up just using our phone service for internet access.
