Wonderful little efficiency apartment. Very clean and nice pool. We also had a ga grill for ur use. Private patio, which was nice for early morning coffee. Close to Duval. We will definitely be back.
Someone local checked to see if we were enjoying our stay and asked if we needed anything. Very nice to have the customer service.

The unit is great and the set up of the multiple units surrounding you is really great. The unit was immaculate clean and everything was functioning as it should. The bed is super comfortable and the AC unit was a wonderful touch. The Vacasa team really does an amazing job at up-keeping this unit. The cottage was well maintained and well stocked. The surrounding units looked in great shape and it was just as the pictures show. It was such a nice addition to have a shared pool only between the Vacasa renters as you could meet people also on vacation and share good stories, which is what we did here. I had a wonderful vacation due to the Vacasa team that maintains these units because everything exceeded my expectations. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Cant wait to come back to Key West.
Frank F.Apr 2022
Very clean, comfortable and secure. Also in a quiet neighborhood. Check in and out process was simple. Had everything you need and more. Would definitely stay here again.
Edward D.Apr 2022
We enjoyed our stay greatly. The villa was clean and well maintained, as were the grounds and pool. Staff at the office was very accommodating allowing us to store luggage there til check in.

Clean, Cozy and Cute had a blast
Melodie W.Apr 2022
Such a perfect, cozy spot. It was beautiful, clean and within walking distance to all the action at the beach and on Duval but yet far enough to enjoy the tranquility. Highly recommend! A plus was meeting the owner who was super nice!
Robert N.Apr 2022
We loved EVERYTHING! Excellent location, quiet getaway yet close enough to walk anywhere. Very clean, perfect size for two people. Felt safe due to cameras and exterior gate. Beautiful grounds, well kept. We will be back!
Brenda P.Jan 2022
On a quiet street in a nice neighborhood just two blocks from all the action of bars and restaurants. Clean and comfortable with plenty of room for two people.

There was deck construction the first two days we were there. The pool deck had a beer can, leaves and trash and was never swept or cleaned up while we were there. The last night we were out until 1:30 am. The kids in the unit next to us had a hot tub but felt the need to stay in the pool under our bedroom window screaming and hollering until 3:45 am. I then went out and told them I had a plane to catch and had to be up at 7am. I did not care if they stayed in the pool and were up all night but screaming and hollering under my window when the pool closes at 10 pm was over the top. They were slightly quieter after that. In the am there was someone passed out sleeping on a pool chair. They were kids from University of Miami. They were clearly all under the age of 23. I’m surprised they were allowed to rent. Since there is video there I’m sure the footage can be reviewed to support what I am saying. For me to hear them over the poorly working A/C and my fan app on my phone they had to be ridiculously loud. I paid too much for this rental to have had construction at 8 am and screaming teenagers at 3:45 in the morning. We came for fantasy fest and can have a good time with the best of them but screaming under my window at 345 am was too much.

My friend and I spent a week at the Poolside Paradise. This unit is a king bed studio with a kitchenette. It was very clean and had everything we needed. This pool house unit is within a gated compound with other houses surrounding a pool. The pool deck has plenty of chairs and tables and also includes a grill.
The only negative was the customer service we received. Since Covid, there is not daily service and that is ok. But they also didn’t inform us about getting clean towels during our stay. I called two days in a row to get towels and they were never delivered. When I got back to the house on the 3rd day, it was after 5pm and the office was closed. I called and the agent handling afterhour calls told me they didn’t have any record of my calls. Even though I had been on the phone for 15 minutes with an agent to put in my request for towels. I only got any request fulfilled when I called after 5pm.
We are disappointed to learn that you had a negative experience with us, Diane. We are committed to providing exceptional customer service, and we will follow up with the appropriate parties to ensure our service standards are fully met. We hope you'll give us a second chance to better serve you!
Lauren M.May 2021
Everything went smoothly and the place was exactly as described. The place was in a great location! We had one small issue with the door locking. We notified the local Vacasa team and they promptly got in touch and sent someone over to fix. He was super helpful and fixed the lock in a few minutes. Thanks for a great stay in Key West - we’ll be back!
Tammi D.May 2021
The place has everything you would need for a little getaway.
Leslie D.May 2021
This place was perfect for us. Small but more than adequate. The location was nice and quiet as opposed to the busier side of the island. Parking was always available on the street. Having the pool right outside our door was wonderful. Great communication with the host. Would definitely stay here again.
Janet A.Feb 2021
We had the best time here. The place was clean and had plenty of space to enjoy. We loved the way it was nestled in right next to the pool. It was close to the beach, the night life and even the bike rental place! We had a great time and hope to get back soon!
Tanya C.Jan 2021
We enjoyed the quiet location, the bed was comfortable unfortunately the pillows left a lot to desire. We ran out of towels and toilet paper Three days in to our six day stay we contacted the number left for us and had no response . Overall we would book again
Tanya, thank you for staying with us! We're so sorry to hear you had concerns with your stay and difficulty with reaching our team. Please know that we are experiencing a higher than normal call and email volume at this time. This is resulting in longer than normal wait times for our guests, and agents are working very hard to assist callers quickly and efficiently. Please know we supply a starter supply of items such as toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, and dish soap to ensure the first night of their stay starts off well. We encourage guests to bring their preferred items if they anticipate needing more. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again.

Quite location, pool right outside of cottage; private covered patio great for morning coffee and evening cocktails.

Vivian S B.Sep 2020
I really enjoyed my stay in this rustic little studio. Located in a quiet area of town and walking distance to Higgs Beach and many attractions. Being next to the pool means you’ll easily make friends with other guests and you have to pass through the common area to exit the building complex. The home was expertly cleaned and the bed was very comfortable. Would stay here again.
Cesar S.Aug 2020
The pool was next to our bedroom and at some point we couldn't sleep. You need to set time rules for the use of the pool. The TV only had one channel
Hello, Cesar! Thank you for your review. We apologize that you encountered a noise problem during your stay. Thank you for your adherence to the Vacasa Good Neighbor policy, we value your feedback surrounding neighbor noise and will work with our local staff to address this issue. We hope to host you again!
Toni t.Aug 2020
Place was so peaceful and quiet, there were no neighboring guest for a few days so we had the pool to ourselves. Our unit was so clean, I mean even the windowsills and blinds had been dusted...awesome housekeeping!!!
Lori Y.Jul 2020
Very cute and comfortable. Close to Duval, within walking distance.
Eduard R.Jul 2020
We really enjoyed our stay at the Poolside Paradise.
It's essentially a complex with a few houses that they rent out so you'll be around other tourists not locals which can add to the conversations and you can possibly make friends and explore Key West together.
We really liked that it was private and had a private little outside seating area which led straight to the pool.
Stefanie S.Jun 2020
Yes it’s small but how much space do you need for a trip to Key West? It was perfect for us! We met some great people at the shared pool. We could have used some ice trays...that was the only thing I wish I had. We chose this unit because so many do not have a king sized bed. The bed was very comfy & the AC worked overtime to help us beat the heat. Some of the patio furniture could used so updating. No hassle checking/out with the Vacasa App. We had a great time!
Linda M.Feb 2020
It was close to the southern most point. It was very clean and well maintained.
Michelle M.Jan 2020
This is a small but comfortable room next to the pool. King bed, small bathroom, table and kitchenette. It's comfortable for 2 people for a short stay but would not recommend for an extended stay. Walking distance to town and quiet when we were there, but if you had loud neighbors in the other houses clustered around the pool it would be tight quarters.
Zina Jane M.Oct 2019
Very nice studio apartment. Clean, freshly painted it appeared. Easy entry and exit. The microwave did not work but we did not need to use it. Neighbors were out in the community pool every day at 4 - 4:30 a.m., which woke us up every morning. We optioned to not make a complaint, but the guest rules are not followed nor enforced. So if renting you would need to know that the studio apt is right on the pool area and everything that would go on out there is shared with you. The other apts have a buffer fence. :-)
Hula T.Aug 2019
The place was clean and very nice, although is hard to figure it out which property is the one you are staying. My email said a name of one property, but we tried several times the code and would not work out. We tried all the properties that look like could be the one, and nothing, it was raining and night. So we had to call and be with someone for about 15 min on the phone so they could explain which one was the place. It could be better described on email, or add numbers. I had called earlier before our arrival and requested a later check out, since our check in was at 4 pm, but our trip delayed and we would not be there until after 8pm, and we were celebrating our anniversary. The staff on the phone laughed at my requested and said it was not available, even thought there was no one there. Also, the next day, even knowing that we were arriving late, a staff member walked into our property without knocking at the door or nothing before 9 am, and woke us up. Check out normally is not until 11 am. Also the pool was not really clean so we could not use it, I guess is a hit or miss.
Thank you for your feedback. We sincerely apologize for the customer service you received. Your experience with our staff does not reflect our high standards for customer service or the typical experience of our guests. Going forward, we will make sure to do a better job of prioritizing the comfort of our guests and enhancing their experience in our home. We hope to have another chance to impress you.

Location was great..we really enjoyed the pool. Had a blast getting to know the occupants of the other units!! Would definitely stay here again!!
eric t.Apr 2019
Absolutely perfect neighborhood just off the main strip. Cute little pool, friendly staff and we’ll kept grounds. The AC is very loud, but I’m sure after reading this review, it will get taken care of. Highly recommend vacasa and the poolside paradise!
Renee Z.Apr 2019
Easy to find parking,very close to dog beach
Christina B.Mar 2019
Nice, clean, fresh and no problems. Walking distance to the action and the beach. Street parking was not a problem.
Mark D.Jan 2019
Quiet little spot in a great location! I have been to Key West many times. If you are a couple looking for the perfect spot, look no further!
Marti C.Jan 2019
Poolside Paradise was just perfect for 2 people. Very clean, had everything we needed and was in an excellent location to allow easy walking to the beach and all of old town; from Duval Street to Mallory Square to the Marina to Hemmingway's house!
Brian C.Dec 2018
The home was as described and very comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small but the shower looked new. The place was very clean, and the complex with the pool outside was very nice. We had an issue with the check-in procedures which the company was responsive to and resolved to my satisfaction. I would rent again
Larry M.Jul 2018
This was our second time staying at pool side paradise. Enjoyed our stay. The grounds and pool were very clean. The only thing I can suggest is more towels in the bathroom. The bathroom updates were very nice. Would stay here again. Love Key West❤️❤️❤️
Sherry T.Apr 2018
This was a awesome place to stay...Clean, close to everything pool
Scott B.Apr 2018
Enjoyed our time in Key West will be back soon. Vacasa rentals were great!
Linda S.Mar 2018
Comfy king sized bed, wonderful bathroom, nice kitchenette with plates utensils. Private porch, great pool. Excellent location, quiet area but within walking distance to all old town attractions. Right near beaches and so many great restaurants. Safe location and you get that funky old town feel.
Matthew H.Jan 2018
Nice place, great location.
Michael M.Jan 2018
The property was nice, a little small, and when we were down there it was a bit cooler than expected, so the property was pretty cool at night. It was clean and close to most anywhere we wanted to go. The neighborhood was quiet. We loved the roosters.
Sandra R.Dec 2017
Excellent place for short term stay by one or 2 people. Loved having the pool right outside of our door.
Anne M.Dec 2017
For a couple, this unit was perfect! Just the right size and great location. Staff at Vacasa were very helpful with suggestions and bike rentals.
Lisa K.Nov 2017
Great place! It is a bit off the main area so you have to walk a few blocks before you get to the restaurants but its very quiet and comfortable. Its closer to the beach though! The pool house is inside the complex and right next to the pool. The path to walk through the complex is stones though so its a little hard if your luggage is on wheels but that was our only issue. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the apartment itself was well stocked with towels, dishes, soaps, diahsoap, etc. The king size bed was a real plus!
