About Barry Sommers for Noel Daniels (Owner)

I purchased this home in 2011 in the hopes of someday retiring there. We operated a small family resort in the Poconos of Pennsylvania at the time. With the knowledge of what people are looking for in a vacation getaway from our resort background.....as well as having 3 young children, we were able to equip this home with all the necessities for a fun vacation! In the years since the purchase my husband has passed away and I operate this rental with the help of my father who lives in the downstairs of this house. He is a big help and full of knowledge of the keys. Barry will be only a call away if you need any fishing advise or any vacationing concerns.

Why Barry Sommers for Noel Daniels (Owner) chose Upper Florida Keys

When I chose this home for our retirement it was because the location is supreme! We had a small fishing boat at it fits nicely in this large driveway. The house is steps from the public boat ramp and has unusually large beautiful trees that make the home feel like it is secluded. It is a shady oasis in a paradise. I absolutely fell in love with this spot!

What makes this house unique

I take two trips a year to this house with my family too! My parents and my brothers come with their kids and rent rooms at the Coconut Palm or the Atlantic Bay and come eat at our big dining room table. This house has so much to offer.

Rustic, woodzy living

  • 4 of 5

This house is perfect for large groups or families. We were a group of 10 from PA with 8 young adults. The fire pit with the trees around reminded us of home. The 2 kitchens also were a blessing! It wasn't a 5 star hotel but it suited our purpose and the "kids" loved it!

Renter beware

  • 1 of 5

Had several issues with this place. Our biggest issue was the overall cleanliness. Had to scrub it before we would even stay there. They also don't run ac so when you arrive the house is over 100 degrees. Found multiple items left from previous renters (ex. Half chewed dog bones, personal belongs, human hair, food crumbs, etc) left under and in couches and beds. Yellow stained towels, mold in the shower and curtains. Old food was left in cabinets and refrigerator attracting more bugs. There is also an overwhelming amount of dead bugs on the floors (and they come back everyday despite cleaning) with hand written framed signs that try to say it's common for the keys which is lie. It's neglect on their part for not consistently treating the grounds with insecticides (extra money in the pocket). Secondly, the pictures show furniture that's no longer in the house and the setup is completely different. They advertised a fire pit and walking distance to the beach but no pit anymore and yeah, an unreasonable walking distance across one of the busiest roads in key west. Bikes were broken. Spoke to their property manager Barry (never saw the entire time despite previous comments he was attentive) after he called to see if we left our ID (turned out not to be ours but previous renters. Clearly proving our point they do not clean or it would've been found earlier) about the cleanliness. Responded with "I'll pass it along to my cleaning services that the cleaning wasn't up to YOUR STANDARD". Barry wasn't so nice after refusing to pay a cleaning fee after we had to do our own cleaning. He actually made the comment "Here in America", I'm guessing because my last name is hispanic and assumed I wasn't from America. After arguing for hours, he eventually agreed to refund the cleaning fee he swore up and down he never took (another argument). Overall, this place was a mistake and would only recommend it if you really aren't spending any time at the house or care about any level of cleanliness. Renter beware

Owner's Response: Dear Renter, I did not respond until I had a chance to fly from my home here in Pennsylvania to the Keys house to see for myself the condition. When I got this review I was so very upset! I immediately blocked the house from being rented and booked tickets to investigate myself at my first convenience because your review was so harsh.....and as you can see from my home's history it is the first bad review I ever got. At first arrival I noticed my home was dim and not easy to find.....I installed solar lights casting up at the house and on the driveway to help with that. The steps and lawn furnishings had some leaves that needed to be brushed away....but overall the outside looked kept. Inside the apartment the furnishings were just as I left them. The photos were almost exact to what I have posted. The cupboard and refrigerator were clean with the exception of one area with sugar, spices, tea and coffee, and some dry canned goods some future guests could use. I pulled all the couches and beds away from the walls and I did find a pen. The towels were clean and fluffy in the bathroom and a new shower curten was on the stall. I did not see the bikes and was alarmed that they had been stolen. I looked in the laundry room and see that all 3 beach cruisers are there for guest use along with snorkel gear and sand toys. The fire pit was replaced with a table by a former guest I presume. I put the mobile" fire bowl" back in plain view. I feel that things are back to the way they should be in this upstairs apartment and as they are pictured in the photos. After mush discussion I have gathered from the neighbors that the centipedes are a normal irritation down here. I did do some organic extermination and I addressed the issue to the best it can be dealt with. When I was there for 3 days.....I did not see ANY ants and only 1 small centipede. I forwarded this poor review on to my cleaning service and they assure me they will keep the home tidy. I feel bad that this renter did not know that check in at 3:00 is still considered the first night and requires payment....as this was why I thought they were from overseas and not accustomed to our very common 3:00 check in, I apologize if this made me seem unfriendly. As a person of Latin descent myself, I do not wish to make anyone feel this way. I wish you all the best in your future travels.
