this house was in a great spot for accessibility to all the right places in Old Key West.

What an awesome property for a getaway.

We rented all 3 units for a Christmas vacation for our extended family of 11 and it was perfect! The pool and deck area of the main house were great gathering areas for all of us. The location was right in the middle of things in Old Town but the pool/deck area felt protected from the crowds.

Close to everything in the old part of town. Tons of really great restaurants within walking distance. Everything was as advertised and outside courtyard was really a plus for all of us. Hot tubs were a great plus, also. Only complaint was that there wasn't a blue tooth capable device in the house for playing music. Also, pool lights didn't work.

We had a great time at this house - the location is pretty unbeatable and everything was, for the most part, as advertised. The few issues at the house were very minor, one of the mattresses was a little saggy and needed replacing, one of the showers leaked due to poor seals, pool lights never worked and some of the outdoor furnishings were different and in poorer shape than the virtual tour showed.
The main reason for the 4 star review versus 5 is the inconsistency of responses by Vacasa. Several days before checking in we were told that early check-in and late check-out looked available. We did end up getting in earlier than the normal time, but it was only after several phone calls and insisting that the reservation agent checked the status of the check-outs, that we were finally given the green light to arrive early, which clearly was possible despite being told "no" several times the day before, and morning of, our arrival. Our requests for late checkout - by phone and text, were completely ignored, but far worse, the Vacasa staff entered parts of the house, mostly exterior, at just after 9 AM on our departure day, 2 hours before check-out time. This is really unacceptable since we had rented the house until 11AM at the earliest - we had all 3 units of the 3 unit property so there is no excuse to have staff wandering around while the rental still belonged to us.
Despite the above I would still rent this house again, but I would hope for better responsiveness from Vacasa.

We rented the entire multi unit property. It was perfect for our needs. Clean, more than enough towels, near Duval, even secure parking for our scooters!
We are already looking at returning to that same property next year.
Laura F. Oct 2019
What a great house and place to vacation in Key West. The accommodations and the staff at the vacasa went above and beyond. Special thanks to KB.
Samantha D. Sep 2019
It was the best location we have ever had. The space is exactly how it is advertised and I will definitely rent the house if not part of the house again.
Steven C. Sep 2019
Nice and roomy
Leah M. Aug 2019
We spent my 40th at the Keys and this place was Perfect! There were 10 of us that stayed and 13 total for crew- we used the pool SO much on the trip and had enough room to have our own space! The back porch was a perfect hangout!
Janice L. Jul 2019
Super convenient location...great set up for a group...pool was nice but very warm and in full sun mid day...upstairs unit patio/hammock/hot tub was an ideal place to beat the heat, shady and breezy...kitchens were well appointed...we really enjoyed our family vacation...10adults and 3 kids
Jerry S. Jul 2019
The place is great to host a big group. There was 13 of us. 7 adults and 6 kids. My parents got the little house out back which was perfect for them. 3 kids shared a room in the main house and a family of 4 had the upstairs. We would defiantly stay again only have a couple of complaints and one is the pool could use some serious tlc! And the second is there’s not a lot of outside seating. There’s no dining room or living room in the house when you are occupying the whole property. So it would be nice to have some extra seating outside. The lounge chairs around the pool were very chintzy. No major complaints but those things would’ve been nice. I would stay here again
Manager response:
We are delighted to see you would stay again despite some hiccups! We have ordered new lounge chairs, and the pool pump is scheduled to be fixed before the end of July. Thank you!
Grant S. May 2019
We loved this place! We spent most of our time in or around the pool. I was able to snag a free parking spot right out front so that was great. We rented a golf cart and used that to get around, but it’s close enough to all the action to walk. Highly recommended spot!
Nancy M. May 2019
We loved that we could accommodate our entire group in the pool/porch gathering area. The washing machine didn't work, nor did the middle fan on the porch, but since we were only there for 4 days, it wasn't an issue for us. It is an older home with tons of character, and the kitchen and bathrooms are updated. We had a great time and would highly recommend.
Doug L. Mar 2019
Loved the location and outside spaces. Good rental for a group.
daniel j l. Jan 2019
Great location with 3 separate sleeping areas. The TV did not work but the management company got it fixed ASAP on the day we called. The washing machine was broken which was a problem when we were preparing to leave. This place is a bit run down and needs to focus on making sure things work.
Katherine C. Jan 2019
Location was fantastic and the space was great for our large group. We could easily walk to all the Duval St has to offer as the house is just one block off Duval. I was worried about parking before arriving, but it ended up being much easier than I had anticipated. Whitehead St has spots for non-residents if you get lucky. You may not be able to park right outside, but a 10 minute walk isn’t so bad when the weather is great and you can have a drink on the walk back!
R M. Sep 2018
We had a large group of 13, and it was perfect for us. We loved the location in the center of everything, easily within walking distance of almost anything you would want to do. The older house was well-updated with only minor signs of age here and there. The kitchen could have been slightly more equipped (needs things like cookie sheets), but that again is very minor. Overall, we really enjoyed our long weekend here, and Vacasa was great to work with!
Vanessa G. Aug 2018
We celebrated our annual family reunion in this home and it was perfect for our family of 8 adults with 5 kids. We enjoyed the pool, the barbeque and jacuzzis tremendously and the location was perfect, as it is 1 street from Duval and its many restaurants and local attractions. We cannot wait to be all back together there next year!
Nicholas R. Aug 2018
There were a few minor issues with the house: the fence was broke, ripped cushion, and the pool was dirty. The pool was shocked on the second day so it was good after that. Minor issues, overall a great place.
Manager response:
The fence was broken during Hurricane Irma; we are waiting on city approval to remove the tree before repairs can begin. We apologize for the delay. Housekeeping is working on replacing the ripped cushions. Thank you!
Isabelle R. Jul 2018
We took up the entire property. It was 10 of us and we had an amazing time!!!

The house is set up to really enjoy the pool and outdoors. It was well stocked with kitchen ware, toiletries, etc.

We would certainly come back!
