Feels like home to me!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are 10 days into our month stay at Maureen and Marc's Tropical Cottage, and it truly feels like home. Everything listed in this ad is totally accurate and pictures cannot do justice to the beautiful floors and all the unique touches that make this home a pleasure to come back to after exploring all our favorite places in Key West.

We are "frequent flyers" here, and this is definitely one of our best experiences, especially in communication with and from Maureen. She had even offered to let us come down a few days early, but sadly our time schedule would not allow for extra days. The only downside was that we did not get to meet her in person.

We give Tropical Cottage a 4 thumbs up and would definitely consider staying here again.

Great time at a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for my wife and me. We recently moved down to Key West and stayed at Maureen's until we found a permanent place to live. She was very flexible and is one of the most hospitable people you will ever meet. This cottage was the perfect way to see and become more familiar with Key West. Just a short walk to Duval street and a short bike ride to the beach (bikes included!). Throw in the hammock and the private outdoor shower and you get a true taste of paradise. Would definitely recommend Maureen's place to anyone. You won't regret spending a month or two soaking up the sun down in the Keys here!

Best location in the city! I loved my time here!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed myself in this cozy cottage in Key West. The place was spotless, and was 100% furnished with everything I needed and then some. The property even comes with two bikes, which are the best way to get around Key West. The beds are comfortable, and so is the furniture in the home. There is an outdoor covered patio perfect for conversation or outdoor dining. The location is what really sold me on this place. You can walk anywhere, and you are just a few blocks away from all the activity of Duval Street, yet it is in a quite neighborhood which is hard to find in Key West. I had a couple questions when I first arrived, and the owner contacted me right away to answer my questions. Maureen was really nice and was always just a phone call away. I loved my time here and I'll be back. Awesome!
