We were delighted with the Conch Cottage! Great location, easy walk to everywhere we wanted to be on Key West. Management company was easy to work with and friendly. The back yard was a perfect relax space. We would definitely stay here again.

Convenient, cute, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Conch Cottage on Simonton for the week that straddled Feb and March and really enjoyed the space. It was unseasonably warm, so we didn't get as much use of the hot tub as I had expected, but did use it a couple of times. I loved the outdoor shower and the privacy of the back courtyard. We cooked one to two meals a day there and found the kitchen to be small, but workable. Be aware that they do just provide a small amount of supplies, such as trash bags, paper towels and toilet paper to get you started you must provide your own after that. Not a big deal, but I would have grabbed a couple of trash bags from home had I known. We rented scooter and were able to park in free scooter parking spots just two houses down the block. We could also easily walk to the Cuban Coffee Queen downtown location for a quick coffee or cuban mix sandwich or Faustos Market for supplies.

The space was very true to the pictures and descriptions and is perfect for a couple to enjoy.

a very cute little house, perfectly located, with a nice yard and great service!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for two, the house is well equipped, it has a very nice small and totally enclosed backyard (perfect for the two little dogs we brought) and is two minutes from Duval, but away from the hustle. We arrived early (announced) which wasn't a problem at all, a bulb which broke was replaced immediately, so great service! At the neighbor house construction was going on (should be finished meanwhile) , the noice was a bit annoying, but the agency found a solution for that as well. When coming back to Key West we would definitely rent the same place again.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

The updates and décor were beautiful. We really enjoyed the back deck. Couldn't have asked for a better location. Plenty of places to eat within walking distance, close enough to Duval, but still quite at night.

Great location! Very helpful staff

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place. Will definitely stay again. Small, but clean. Bedroom was a little warmer than the rest of the house, but nothing we ended up needing to call the company for.

Amazing stay in Key West!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a nicer, homier or more local experience and stay in key west! This adorable cottage was in a great quiet neighborhood just seconds from both Duval and the beach. Can't say enough great things about this cottage and will definitely be back! Cheers from Colorado!
