Patrick W. Jul 2022
We loved to stay in the old town garden villas. It‘s a beautiful place close to the best part of Key West. You can do everything by foot and we appreciate this very much. The small villas were very cute, clean and perfect for our vacation. Thank you very much

We LOVED the location of this rental. One block to Duval. We were able to walk almost everywhere. Rental was clean. Sofa bed is not comfortable and mattress is in desperate need of replacement. Make sure you have lots of quarters if you need to
Do laundry. The grounds were also beautiful and we loved the garden area. We stayed in unit 1. The property manager in unit 3. I take rules to an extreme when staying in a rental so I was dismayed to open my door on day 3 to a one page list of never before seen rules with my infraction highlighted. We had returned from a day at Smathers Beach and left our three beach towels out for 30 minutes max before I was left this list. Interestingly enough, the people in unit 2 left out an article of clothing, flip flops and an empty beer can for at least 12 hours and I never saw them receive a nasty gram. There were some that smoked weed on their front porch, others doing cannon balls in the 3’ deep pool and my towels were a big issue? I’m ALL for rules and following them, but they need to be given at check in to be fair, AND consistently enforced for all staying there.

this place is beautiful and spacious, and in a great location to walk to everything!
Lindsey S. May 2022
This was a charming little Villa a block off of Duval. The courtyard is a beautifully landscaped secluded little chill area and a great place to eat, have a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail at night. We would definitely recommend.
Clinton P. Apr 2022
Very convenient to too many restaurants to mention. Don’t plan on swimming in the pool. It’s 3 ft deep. The outdoor area is absolutely gorgeous and makes up for the lack of a pool to get into.
Mark M. Apr 2022
Walking distance to all we wanted to see from Hemingway House to 0 Duval and The Southern Most Point.

House was clean and comfortable. Courtyard was pleasant.
Cynthia M. Apr 2022
The Old Town Garden Villas are their own little garden of paradise a half block off of Duval St. The beautifully maintained courtyard is incredibly peaceful and perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee at the start of each day. The Abaco Suite is the perfect size for a couple, as it has a beautiful bedroom and very room living area that included a sitting area, a dining room and a kitchen. The 1st floor setup was very comfortable to relax in at the end of each day! The king bed is extremely comfortable thus we were well rested each morning for the ventures of the day! I would highly recommend the Abaco Suite and I cannot wait to go back again!!!

Had a great time here. Home was very clean, bed comfortable and close to the down town district. Parking was a challenge, but that's Key West.
Sergio F. Nov 2021
I love this place. 2nd time I have stayed here and doesn't disappoint. Right next to Duval, yet hidden just enough for amazing privacy and quietness. I love how quaint it is. Customer service is great. I had an issue with the lock combination and it was resolved within minutes. I'll stay here again and again.
Cynthia F. Aug 2021
I have visited Key West may times and this is my favorite place that I've stayed. Quiet, but walking distance to everything that I wanted to see. The grounds are beautiful and I enjoyed visits with the resident cat, Kimmie. I also enjoyed my scooter rental from A&M next door. I will definitely stay here again.
Ashley H. Jul 2021
We loved this property. It was so convenient to walk to everything. The layout was perfect for the two of us and we enjoyed jumping in the pool every afternoon. The tropical gardens have it an amazing feel. We will definitely stay here again!
Damon A. Jul 2021
The space and location were awesome. Very clean and the walk down Duval street every night was full of entertainment.
Michelle T. Jul 2021
Great location, beautiful courtyard with small pool. Well maintained housing with ice cold air!!!
Joel F. Jul 2021
We really enjoyed ourselves. The Abaco suite was lovely. The entire property was well maintained. Great location from Duval. Looking forward to staying there again.
April R. Jun 2021
Perfect spot in Key West, great amenities!
Neil H. Jun 2021
Small condo complex with incredible tropical courtyard with locked gate. Our home was recently renovated, fresh, and very comfortable. Two stories and roomy. It’s a good value and great location in old town.
patricia h. Feb 2021
Perfect location to walk to most popular areas in Key West. Place was very clean. Courtyard beautiful.
However, place smelled as if smokers once lived there. Also, upstairs smelled musty and was very humid the entire visit. Upstairs could benefit from a dehumidifier.
Parking is difficult so have a plan before you visit.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback, Patricia, and apologize for any unpleasant odors. The home has just been remodeled, so we are surprised to read that and will certainly look into it. Thank you!
NICOLE Z. Feb 2021
Incredibly clean, very comfortable. The Courtyard is to die for and makes for a beautifully relaxing vacation. The space was perfect for me and my 2 girlfriends for a quiet girls weekend! Although parking was not available, we did find a a bunch of free street spots just 2 short blocks away on Truman. The convenience of having A&M rentals right next door was another unexpected benefit to pick up and drop off bikes and scooters. The Property Manager was incredibly sweet and accommodating. We absolutely cannot wait to come back and visit!
John K. Dec 2020
Comfy, clean and modern townhouse. Beautiful gardens, heated pool, grill, laundry and outdoor dining just outside our door. Just steps from the fun of Duval Street. We're looking forward to our return!
Eric S. Oct 2020
Great location to all the best sports in Key West! This was an adorable little villa! Friendly property manager and a cute courtyard and pool to relax in. Only suggestion would be more paper towels and dish washer detergent available in the home. As travelers who don’t like to have house keeping come by frequently, we like having back up items in the Home.
Gina S. Oct 2020
Loved this cute cozy cottage for mine and my husbands five year wedding anniversary!!
Corey P. Sep 2020
We stayed for 4 nights and the suite was perfect for us! It was so close to Duvall Street, the Hemingway House, and restaurants. We walked everywhere. The house was clean and the bathroom looked to be recently renovated and was very nice. The grounds and the pool were are very nice and clean. I would definitely recommend this property to others and would stay here again!
Jennifer B. Sep 2020
Overall, was very clean. I feel the location picture was a bit misleading because we thought from the photos, ours was right next to a pool shared by one other villa, with pool being in middle. Not so, pool shared by about 6-8, we were not next door, but it was close. Also felt weird that the property managers lived one villa away, so i always felt like they were watching everything. 3 times I went to use pool, it seemed very dirty, bird feathers and leaves, so i did not use, it was like 100 degrees. So dirty pool is no beuno. It advertised street parking, but be prepared to pay $32 a day for the garage thats a few blocks away, as street parking is rare. Being so hot, it would have been nice to leave ice maker on, as it takes a while, and extra paper towels. I mean it was better than Holiday Inn.
Manager response:
Jennifer, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback following your stay. We apologize that your experience in our home was not the vacation for which you had planned, which we strive to provide our guests. We provide the address of the home so that our guests can best plan activities for their stay. Please note that the listing is up-to-date in noting that the pool is a shared amenity with neighboring homes. We apologize for any issues with pool cleanliness. Routine cleaning and servicing of the pool is scheduled, along with a pool skimmer and net being provided for any interim and minimal cleaning needs. Regretfully, street parking is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and Key West does have unique challenges for finding additional parking. Our team is available 24-hours in order to assist our guests - please reach out so we can best assist you in the future! We hope to host you again, soon!"
Zahary D. Aug 2020
Great place to stay especially if you have a dog! The house can benefit from a dehumidifier though, there was a consistent musty smell and the couches were constantly wet from the humidity. Other than those minor issues it was perfect.
Manager response:
Hi Zahary, thank you for your feedback about the dehumidifier. We are glad that you and your pup enjoyed your stay and we hope to host you again soon.
Robin H. Aug 2020
Great location right off the center of Duval. Walked to most everything, rented a bike next door and cruised all over. Very quiet.
Roy B. Jun 2020
Great location to all things to do in old town key west!

perfect place and location.
Alicia C. Feb 2020
Wonderful space, excellent location. Courtyard and pool area are inviting and relaxing.
Michael S. Feb 2020
The location was excellent for us. Close to Duval St (the epicenter of all the night life) yet very quiet and relaxing achieved by the gated courtyard. The courtyard itself was an explosion of greenery and awesome tropical color.
The Abaco Suite where we stayed was clean, spacious and comfortable. Most everything was provided even coffee for the coffeepot. The plunge pool was nice and cozy and temperature controlled. All in all a very nice stay for the wife and I.
Sarah R. Jan 2020
This is the best place to stay in Key West. This is my second time staying here and will definitely be coming back. Love the courtyard area and privacy.
louis h. Dec 2019
This is our third stay at the Garden Villas and we will definitely be back. Beds were comfortable, House was very clean and the location is perfect!
Brad C. Dec 2019
Loved the common area!
Steve R. Dec 2019
We stayed in the Havana Suite last year and loved it. This year we got the Abaco and had a completely different experience. The primary issue was the absolutely horrible and pervasive musty smell of mildew or mold (to be clear, we did not see any, it's just what it smelled like). It was overwhelming, and even the tremendous amount of room spray used couldn't cover it up. It was worse upstairs, and better when we opened the windows. That led to our second issue which is that this unit backs up to a business that rents scooters and golf carts. The noise from the business during the day was not a big deal, but the air compressor going off all night long was problematic. We were really disappointed - the management company was quick to respond to our complaints and sent someone over to clean the A/C units. Unfortunately this didn't work and even more room spray was used. Everything we had with us came home with this awful smell.

All this said, the Old Town Garden Villas are wonderful - the managers on site are great people, everyone is friendly, the location is superb. We loved the Havana Suite. The Abaco Suite needs some attention as soon as possible.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Steve. We apologize for the issues that prevented you from fully enjoying your stay, and we appreciate you allowing us to refund you for your dissatisfaction. We are happy to report that the townhouse has had a professional inspection and cleaning, and we have successfully removed any unpleasant odors. We look forward to hosting you again!
Judy K. Oct 2019
Beautiful gardens, nice hosts. We would definitely give this 5 stars if they did not use such strong chemicals to clean unit. The ammonia smell never left in the 4 days we stayed. It was awful.
Manager response:
Judy, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your overall stay! We apologize that the cleaning odor was overpowering, but please know we use very safe, effective cleaning agents prior to guests' stay. We truly look forward to hosting you next time!
Chitra N. Jul 2019
We enjoyed the stay,..the space itself, the location near everything, the prompt response when we complained the air conditioning was not working well. All great!

Good location and clean. Met your needs perfect.
Basheer B. Sep 2018
This was our first time in Key West and we enjoyed having so much access to the liveliest parts of the city. The rooms were comfortable and functional. There's a washer/dryer on property, which was helpful. The views from the house are not great, as the property backs up to a commercial bike/cart rental facility, which did create a lot of noise and light pollution throughout the night and early morning. The walls are shared as well, so if your neighbor has a dog or a kiddo, you may end up hearing them throughout your stay. Not unpleasant, just worth knowing. We lost power during our stay (as did most of Duval street), and I was glad to see they have emergency lighting installed which was helpful while we waited for the power to come back on.
Helen T. Aug 2018
The house is comfort and cute like a doll house.
Jenay R. Aug 2018
The suite was large, clean and nicely situated in old town. Far enough away that if you wanted some quite time but close enough that Mallory Square was only a 15 minute walk. Definitely want to stay on our next visit.
Shannon K. Jul 2018
The check-in staff were wonderful and gave some great options for the area. Easy to rent bikes from the office as well.

The home was in a perfect location and SAFE. There is a private courtyard that is so cute and the pool is more of a dipping pool, but we used it!

The hide a bed - NOT comfortable and the air conditioning left a weird smell throughout the unit.

Overall a great experience and would definitely recommend.
Manager response:
We apologize for the musty smell that occurs in the building when the air conditioners are run; unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about it at this time. Thank you!
Jeffrey S. Jul 2018
The accommodations were great. Nice and cozy, private courtyard. Staff was friendly. Pool was closed down for 3 of the 4 days we stayed. :(
Megan W. Jun 2018
I loved everything about the Abaco Suite. The suite was everything we expected and then some, the courtyard and pool were so relaxing and private from the street, the amenities were great and the location is convenient to everything you might want to do on Key West. I can’t say enough good things! We will be back for sure!
Olga G. May 2018
