Quiet neighborhood, walking distance to everything. Adorable cottage, perfect for parents with one or two children or two couples. Nice outside area. Pool is small, more for taking a dip than swimming. Kitchen is well appointed, in stark contrast to many rentals.
everything, no complaints just compliments
Fantastic location and home. Very well appointed and clean. We will definitely stay here again!
The property is very nice. Location is walkable, but not too close to everything. Outdoor area with pool and two dining areas is great. The house has a good layout for a couple and 2 kids or singles sharing a room. I removed one star simply because of the commercial property management. Several items need maintenance - two burners don’t work, refrigerator freezes everything and the ice maker doesn’t work. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware, but if you plan to do any cooking note there are no condiments, salt, pepper, sugar, oil, coffee filters, etc. everything is removed at each cleaning so bring some along or be prepared to buy EVERYTHING you need to cook. I feel like corporate property management removes the ‘homeyness’ that used to come along with short-term rentals. There are also no games, no books, no little lived-in touches; just like a really nice hotel suite. That may be preferable for some, but those homey touches are the reason I like short-term rentals instead of staying in a hotel. I’ll look closer next time to make sure I’m renting from a private owner.
Hi, Jeffrey! Thank you for letting us know about the malfunctioning appliances. Maintenance is scheduled to take care of those. We do hope you'll consider staying with us in the future now that you better know what to expect.
There were a number of smaller issues that combined to make our experience less than fulfilling.
Living room TV had no cable. We turned in a request for service, got a canned response, no one showed up.
The refrigerator & ice maker were inoperable. We were given a small “cube” refrigerator as a replacement.
Pool jets were not functional.
The floors were swept, but walking in white socks suggests they were never cleaned. No one likes to live in someone else’s dirt.
We would have brought our own supplies had we known that there were little or no coffee filters, laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, salt & pepper, trash bags or facial tissues.
We expected Vacasa and Passover Cottage to provide a premium Key West experience. Sadly, this was not the case.
We will likely not return nor recommend Vacasa to anyone else.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Eric. We sincerely apologize for the disappointment, maintenance, and cleanliness issues you experienced during your time with us. We take cleanliness and customer service seriously and apologize if our standard wasn't met during your stay. We appreciate you reaching out and contacting local staff to assist with a resolution of these issues. We hope for another opportunity to host you again for a much better stay!
The house was well maintained and appeared to be recently remodeled. Kitchen had everything we needed, beds were comfy. The pool/deck area was beautiful and we spent much of our stay in and around the pool. Easy walk to restaurants, bars and grocery store. I will definitely try to stay here again!
Absolutely loved this property! We celebrated our 20th anniversary and it was just perfect. Love the pool and the pass-through window from the kitchen to the pool area! And the chandelier hanging in the corner above the table was a wonderful touch to our anniversary dinner. So excited to return next year!
The location of the house is central, without being loud. The house setup feels spacious without a huge footprint- all space is used well. The house and grounds are very well kept with all amenities available (except we couldn’t find the frying pan!!). We hope to come back here again!
House was perfect for two couples. Very clean, great location. Off street parking was great, we fit a 3 row SUV in the driveway with no problem. Location is great, walking distance to about everything yet far enough away to be really quiet. Pool was great at the end of the day. Would definitely stay here again.
We did not want to leave. House was perfect. Great Location. Beautiful Pool and Patio. I could go on ..... Id buy that house if i could lol
I loved the close walking proximity to all things Key West! The indoor/outdoor space was perfect. I enjoyed the simple things such as: lights on dimmers, off the street parking and ample beach towels. Oh and the stay was made even better by Vacasa's customer service! We stayed here during tropical storm and one of the shutters on the house was not secured nor easily accessible. Vacasa promptly replied and had an engineer to remedy the issue in record time!
Home was everything it was advertised to be. Worked extremely well for a family of 5. Pool was clean and in good working order. We enjoyed each day very much. We were impressed hot water didn’t run out with family of 5 taking showers each night. Also the washing machine pods and coffee available was a nice touch. Great stay!
We throughly enjoyed staying at the Passover Cottage & would love to stay here again.
The description & photos of the house are totally accurate. Perfect for a small family or 2 couples. This is our second time renting this house - hopefully we’ll be able to rent again! VACASA staff was very helpful.
Fully furnished, clean and quiet neighborhood
Perfect house perfect location. Loved it!!
Had a great time. It was our first visit to Key West. We loved sitting by the pool every day and just enjoying the warm sun. The house is within walking distance of most of the restaurants and places we visited. There are several grocery stores within walking distance also. A great place to getaway and relax with your spouse or for couples.
Great little home in KW! Great, quiet neighborhood location. During the afternoon, the home is right under the landing flight path for the airport, so you'll get to hear and see about a half dozen or so planes come in. Luckily it's usually just for a short period of time, and not really an issue. House cooling system was great, with 'split' units positioned well. The backyard is well manicured and laid out. I selling point for us was the second bedroom having two beds, thanks for that! Gated parking spot was great for parking our scooters and rental car. Would definitely book again when we're itching to get back to KW. Thank you!
Awesome house. Had a group of 6 YA there. The back pool area is perfect with the pool set up plus outdoor dining. We spent the majority of our time out there as we also had great weather. House was about a 15 min walk to Duval so also perfect there. Only downside is the pull out couch was not the best comfort so we slept on couches instead. There are a few corner stores in the area to buy beverages but would highly recommend going to a grocery for food as we had an issue with some OOD food from the corner stores. Overall we loved this house and would definitely rent again!
What a cute place! It was perfect for two couples!
I loved being across from the cemetery... I took walks every morning there. How peaceful...
The pool was wonderful, but I wish we had a way to clean it while we were there. Lots of debris on the bottom.
The Good : Key West , reduce amount of people in town due to the pandemia. Nice patio, pool area.
Quiet , safe neighborhood, close to downtown.
The Not So Bad : across the street from a historic cemetery ( no big deal ) , close to an airport but no planes flying early in the morning or in the evenings.
In No Way Ugly: beautiful house , neat .
Floor plan perfect for a family of 5 Adults.
No need to park on the street. Good air conditioning, perfect for this time of the year.
Bathrooms new. Nice size kitchen. Master bedroom bed comfortable.
We loved the place and will be back !
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Passover Cottage recently. The cottage is clean, comfortable and conveniently located in the Old Town. I only wish it didn't rain so much so we could enjoy the pool and back patio more.
Clean, spacious, well appointed
Great home great location amazing location
Beautiful home with every amenity. Several great restaurants nearby. Parking space a definite plus.
Awesome location, super pool area, well-stocked kitchen utensils, ultra comfy bedding, efficient check in, and whimsy out the wazoo. Was practically perfect!!
I’ve rented in many other locations in Key West and this place falls in the top 5...quiet, private, comfortable, off-street parking and well located for old town exploration. A beautiful interior, spacious deck and nothing beats a pool to refresh in (with working outdoor shower). Perfect for four or less, I’d return without question.
We have stayed at Passover Cottage
5 times over the years and have never been disappointed. It is conveniently located to attractions but has a lovely secluded outdoor area and private pool. Very clean and we’ll appointed!!
There was not a thing I didn't love about this place. Close to everything very comfy very private. Will be back
House is perfect with good public spacer for hanging out both inside and out. Nice
To have off street parking. Kitchen has the essentials.
The place was great. Parking situation was a little difficult- random cars would just park in our assigned spot. Other than that, the home was very nice.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Daniel! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Please note that a designated, off-street parking spot with a gate is available when renting this cottage. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Wow! Amazing! Fantastic! That's the short review. For the details...This place was exactly as photographed, no camera tricks, but actually even better in person! The house feels roomy, it was clean, neat, and super private. They supplied great eco friendly toiletries, (shampoo, conditioner, and soap) along with plenty of towels, including pool towels. They had all the kitchen basics (no spices) if you wanted to cook something. Master bed mattress was on the firm side which I didn't mind. Pool was crystal clear and outdoor shower was nice to use, it had both hot & cold water (super private). There was also propane grill with plenty of entertainment seating outside. This property also came with the use of a1 car private driveway with electric gate... which was great for us, because we drove down. Almost everything within Old town including Duval Street was within walking distance, but there were plenty of bicycles, scooters, or golf cart rentals just a few blocks away. We enjoyed this place and would love to rent here again next time. Great experience!.
Everything was perfect! When vacationing in Key West, I like the local flavor accommodations the best. Location is central to all the attractions, but even staying at the cottage and kicking back is the essence of the area. Can’t wait to schedule another great week.
Comfortable house with nice beds and cold air conditioning as well as a nice pool
Two couples that have been vacationing in KW for years have designated this year’s trip as one of the best! I believe due in part to our lovely little cottage. Very comfortable for 4 adults. Check in was easy - staff was great!
We loved this cottage. It was spacious, nicely decorated and felt very private even though there were houses next door that were fairly close. We enjoyed the short walk to Duvall St. and various points of interest. Passover cottage is a real gem.
The Passover Cottage was exactly as pictured and the location can’t be beat. Central to all of the fun but in a quiet area. The house was very clean and well stocked. The grounds made you feel secluded and the pool was the perfect temperature. Absolutely loved it and would stay again.
This was perfect for a girls' weekend getaway for 5 friends. The outdoor space is so adorable we had a hard time leaving the cottage to sightsee. There are two small grocery stores within walking distance and Duval St. is also within walking distance.
We loved the place, well furnished and the heated pool was a real plus!
The central location places so many dining and entertainment options within a moderate walk, and the pool and outdoor layout are great!
Cute home with spacious living room and amazing tropical patio!
The cottage, landscaping, & the privacy. I’m a FL resident, will definitely come back with other guest. My Aunt from N.C. & a friend, from Tallahassee, was with us. It was perfect! The trip was fast & too short!!! Highly recommend this beautiful cottage!!! 5 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
Love this property, and have stayed here before. Some concerns we'd like to see changed:
The overgrowth of the trees in the front was difficult to walk pass. Called the first day after arrival and was told that someone would be there to trim the brush, which was not done.
Too much chlorine in the pool, itchy skin while swimming.
There was no outdoor lights working in the backyard by the pool, which would have been nice to use at night.
Some of the pool jets were not working.
House was clean.
Garage cans filled will debris on arrival, so we has little space for garbage.
Suggested for an updated and larger tv in the main room.
Even though we had a good stay, for the amount of the stay, was expecting a bit more.
We appreciate the guests feedback. Our Local Manager is currently talking to the owner about the landscaping as they hire their own company to clean the property. The pool company has been notified about the amount of chlorine and the pool jets. The outdoor lighting has since been repaired and the timer has been reset. Unfortunately, Key West only has a one day a week garbage pick up system, but our housekeeping team has since cleared out all the trash.
The people in the Key West office of Vacasa were fantastic. They took excellent care of me and the house. They made the trip special.
It was a lovely cozy cottage atmosphere and the pool was nice to have after exploring Key West. We would definitely recommend and revisit again!
Four of us just stayed here for four nights - we were having a girls trip. We spent each day making breakfast enjoying the pool and then we went out briefly for dinner in the evenings. The house was amazing we had everything we needed and it was a great set up for our group. The pool was just enough for all of us to really comfortable. We will be back!!
The house was perfect for our needs. A friend of mine who is a local concierge in Key West (Sandy Bland) helped us find 728, without her help we would not have discovered this little gem. We rented it for the week of our sons wedding in key west and we were the focal point for our grandchildren (3 of them) to swim and cook out with us during the days and evenings.
The home was clean and cozy, the ac blew cold even on the second floor. The outside was well maintained and the pool was clean and cool. The house keeping services were a nice touch and they were very friendly, efficient, and quick. We enjoyed the location most of all which was quiet. The neighbors across the street are “dead” quiet but we enjoyed the scenery of a giant conch and other historic views.
Our next door (728 1/2) neighbor, Sue and her husband were very friendly and neighborly, very good people. I liked having a parking spot where our vehicle was secured behind a gate adding that extra layer of security.
It was such an enjoyable stay we are coming back next year for another quiet, pleasurable weeks stay ... without grandchildren this time!
VERY clean and outdoor spaces really expand the living area in good weather. Kitchen is blissfully tiny (so easy to keep clean, maybe not the best for elaborate dinner preparation), and with all the windows, feels like it's out in the backyard. Comfortable furniture and beds, great location, quiet and peaceful. Decor is so nice, not over the top or too much but tasteful and just enough to feel done and cozy. Just loved the place, would definitely rent again.
This home was perfect for four people -- a little cozy for six. The house was perfectly furnished and appointed. The pool and back yard were great for relaxing. The house's location was central to the north and south sides so it made it easy to walk to everything.
We loved this house so much! The back deck setting and pool are fabulous! Lots of beautiful, tropical plants/landscaping. The house was very clean and looked exactly like the pictures. The location is convenient to Duval Street, the Harbor Walk, etc. Key West Vacation Rentals’ staff is amazing. The pool was not quite warm enough so I sent an email and an hour later someone was there to turn up the heat. My brother in law left his keys in the house but didn’t realize it until we were at the airport with less than an hour until our flight. Between the office staff, housekeeping and the shuttle driver, they came together and got his keys to us before our flight left!! We were so grateful for them!! You will love this house and the service provided by Vacasa and Key West Vacation Rentals!
We had a great stay at this home.
Nice central location. Quiet neighborhood.
Great house for two couple to rent! Good location. Easy walk to Duvall Street. The neighbors across the street are very quiet....especially since it's a cemetery. There are two conveience stores very close for last minute items and need to haves.
If something is wrong with the home, please don’t look for any kind of help or compensation from anyone in the office, they will just ignore you. After all, you should just be happy to be there at all. That’s the feeling I got. Otherwise, great time
Great house, great location, subpar performance from prior management.
