Becoming an Annual Tradition

  • 5 of 5

Our family (wife and three boys) have stayed in the cabin for for a week each of the last two years. The cabin is clean, fairly spacious and has all that you need for a great stay. We particularly liked the back porch, pool, full kitchen and the washer/dryer. The cabin is centrally located making walking or biking to just about anywhere you want to go in old town a breeze. Check in and check out is a breeze, and I've found the manager is very responsive on the unlikely chance you have an issue during your stay. We plan on being back next year . . .

Charming cottage

  • 3 of 5

The cottage has a lot of potential, it is roomy and has a great back porch with a nice garden pool view. The location is convenient to walking but right in the flight path so when planes fly overhead you have to stop your conversation, or wake up from your nap, either way not ideal! Also the cottage is right on the street and probably due to its age and a lack of insulation you are able to hear every car, moped or dog walker whistling that walks by! The weather was perfect and it would have been nice to open up the bedroom French doors to the pool but there are no screen doors and with the mosquitoes and potential for Zika we had to keep the cottage closed up. As a vacation rental property owner we can see the potential in this property but did not feel it was being maintained at the level it should be for the cost.

Owner's Response: Everyday I deal with the general public, I enjoy listening to their different perspectives or expectations when they go on vacations. All of your concerns and characteristics mentioned in your review are the same ones past guests have used to explain why they had such a delightful time, i.e. roomy cottage with a great back porch and a view of the landscaping around the pool; convenient location where you can chat with the locals from the front porch, or hear them whistling while walking their dogs. Because you are in the oldest area of Key West the houses are right at the street (also part of the ambience), and, as in bygone days, ceiling fans in each room prevent mosquitos from landing on you. Past guests always shop around the island to compare costs, then book the "Down Town Cottage in Historic District" because of the rates. Regarding the noise of airplanes flying over the property, when you live on a 2mi. by 4 mi. island, every resident hears the planes that bring the tourists into Key West who contribute to our healthy economy. As I said earlier, I enjoy listening to our guests and look forward to the next ones who will contradict each other on what makes the perfect vacation.

Nice, quaint and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this cute little cottage for a long weekend vacation. It was perfect for our "girls getaway". The neighborhood is quiet, but it's close enough to walk for the nightlife.

I highly recommend this cute cottage.

This property is everything is says it is! Beautiful lush landscaping around the pool too.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 3 children ( 17, 14 and 12) stayed at this property and absolutely loved it! We rented bikes because of the cottage's central location and found we could be anywhere in 6-10 minutes on the bikes. We enjoyed the pool between excursions and in the evening. The cottage was quaint, very clean, and perfect for an island vacation. We high recommend this rental!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was exactly what we needed. The pictures don't do it justice! The cottage was immaculate when we got there. It's cleaner than any hotel room I've ever seen. I'm a bit of a hotel snob and didn't want to pay Key West hotel prices, so we started searching for a house/cottage to rent. Super cute layout and plenty of room for us all. Having a pool right on the property is a must! We also appreciated the convenience of a washer and dryer on site. A quick 10 minutes walk and your on Duval street, but don't have to sleep next to Duval noise. I can't say enough about this place. Don't hesitate and book!

Wow what an amazing trip & the cottage made our stay amazing!! 5 STAR

  • 5 of 5

I can't go on enough to say how much I enjoyed this place. We have been to Key West many times and this was PERFECT. 1. The location is fantastic. We biked, jogged, and walked - never used the car. We had a child so the pool (and the kitty cat) were an added plus. 2. We did a fair amount of eating out and cooking. Literally they had everything a kitchen would need (there was even some supplies). 3. Roberta was amazing to deal with! Easy check in and out. Flexible everything A PLUS!!! 4. GREAT internet. No bandwidth issues. 5. Safe neighborhood and great parking. 6. Pool toys and the Atocha Cottage has the best porch!! 7. Washer and dryer saved us. 8. There is a ton of room (literally 8 people could stay in the Atocha). It was paradise all in all. Very happy and we will be back.
