Everything we imagined and way more!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 dogs, and I came to Key West for our honeymoon and it was beyond amazing! The home was even more beautiful in person than the pictures show. It was very clean, roomy, and had everything we needed!

The pool is beyond amazing!! We spent most of our days in there, as it was very relaxing and private. I even loved doing laundry in the outside, but covered, laundry area.

The home is in a perfect location, just down the street from Duval Street, but far away enough to be away from the noise when you want to relax. We spent a lot of time on the adorable front porch and watched the people go by. Our dogs loved it too!

Working with everyone from the management company was wonderful! They answered all of my questions and even allowed us to stay an extra day because we never wanted to leave. They were very accommodating and beyond friendly.

I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a perfect location, a beautiful home with a pool, and an awesome management company. We will definitely be back!!

Thank you for the use of your home! Sadly, since we have been home, our dog Roland (Ro) passed away in March. This will forever be a vacation close to our hearts. Not only because it was our honeymoon, but because it was our last family vacation with Ro alive. ❤

Michelle, Norm, Roland, and Schultzy

Nice house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Nice house for 2 couples. On bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, the second bedroom utilizes the bathroom that opens into the kitchen. There is also a loft space bedroom that we did not use. The house was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, which was great as we got a lot of fresh seafood at the Eaton St. Seafood Market which is a short walk from the house.

The outdoor area is very nice and private. Unfortunately there were a number of discarded cigarette butts and some broken glass around the perimeter of the pool.

The location is fantastic. You are a short walk to Duval St. and to Fausto's Food Palace - a great local grocery store - as well as a couple of "off the main drag" restaurants.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, First let me say we are terribly upset to hear you encountered the cigarette butts and broken glass by the pool! Our property managers spend a great deal of time at each house inspecting and ensuring the home is in ship shape for our guests. However, they do not find all the issues every time and apologize for this occurrence during your stay. We will pay close attention to the pool grounds to ensure this does not occur again! Cigarettes butts are gross but the glass is a hazard so we are just relieved to hear no one was hurt! In the future, we ask that when guest find something not up to standard, like this situation, to please reach out to their property manager and/ or our office so we may have the opportunity to remedy the situation. This is what we are here for and we are more than happy to pop on over to the rental and fix anything necessary! We are thrilled you enjoyed the home and location otherwise! Thank you for focusing on the positives you found in the home and pointing out details you enjoyed! This is always so helpful to other guests to hear others' experiences to know if this home is a great fit for them as well. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to exceed your expectations in the future with a flawless stay at either Lost Shaker of Salt or another one of our rentals. Best, Regan Butler Office Manager

Great house just the right distance from Duvall

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely! It's well-appointed and the perfect size for two couples. We actually had 5 adults and were pretty comfortable. The loft is probably better suited for kids/teens, but it wasn't terrible for adults. The pool is very pleasant. The house is a short walk from Duvall St. but far enough away that you don't hear noise from the bars at night. We walked to all of our activities - Duvall St., Mallory Square, the marina, Southernmost Point, etc. The house has all the kitchen comforts of home, which is great if you want to dine in instead of dining out every meal.

Love this perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this perfect location. Sipping cocktails watching folks walking out to Duval while getting in the spirit to walk downtown, or swimming in the perfectly private pool. We do notice that the french doors are new, not sure if they fold away like the old doors did, so your kitchen was completely, and awesomely, open to the backyard, bringing the outside in. We loved the house, it was in perfect condition. We rented a car to get out there from the airport, and promptly returned it. A bike was plenty to get around the entire city. We spent a week of our honeymoon here, and we are planning to do it again next year. We stayed a few years back, and the form won't let me put the right date in, but we can't wait to go again. Worth it, so much better than a hotel, or apartment. The utter privacy is unparalleled, the neighbors can't even see into the pool area.

Clean, cute, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The Lost Shaker of Salt is adorable, clean, and truly has a great location! A bunch of people rented houses, apartments, etc and we truly had the best house. You can't beat the location to Duval and Front, truly close to everything. The beds were comfy, linens and towels in abundance. The master bathroom had just been redone and is beautiful. The kitchen has everything you need. Just note the third bedroom is a loft. Our son loved it. Two adults could sleep up there no problem. It is open to downstairs, so early risers a must. The pool was spotless too. Truman was great to rent with. The outside garbage was full with yard clippings when we arrived and they came to take care of that immediately. I was hesitant with my 20 month old and the pool but I rented a play area from The Hip Tourist and kept the door locked. Rent this house, it is great. We will absolutely rent again.
