Perfect Getaway!

This was a great place. Very relaxing and peaceful. Like a home away from home. It was nice to stay someplace where someone takes pride in their place. Not meant for children, more for adults.

The Beach Villas

This is a great place. We have stayed at many places in Key West and this is the best of them all. Clean, comfortable, quiet and it's not a hotel - it's like a home. Smathers Beach is a short walk and Salute' is a great restaurant on the beach - also within walking distance.

Cute, clean, and cozy.

The beach bungalow was just big enough for 2 people to stay comfortably with each other. It was clean and had just enough space to get ready for activities on the island in the morning, and a great place to relax upon returning. The location was good; the closest beach was a little smelly but there are plenty more beaches to choose from, and the owner of the bungalow recommended a bike rental place that made the trips to the other beaches, and everywhere else, much more enjoyable. The owner of the bungalow was very friendly and accommodating. The deck was a wonderful place to sit in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee, and also a great place to grill lunch and dinner. The washer and dryer in the back of the house also came in handy, and the kitchenette was stocked with plenty of clean dishes. Overall we had a wonderful experience staying at this bungalow and would definitely stay there again :)

A Jimmy Buffet Escape

I'd never stay anywhere else unless I HAD to! True Island atmosphere. Have a sloppy joe and "sloppy rita"; peel & eat shrimp and a Loaded Landshark @ Margaritaville; take the sunset glass-bottom boat trip; shop not just on Duval, but the smaller shops off the beaten track; Butterfly House is unique. The whole experience of Key West is like nowhere else on earth. Best experienced if you aren't "normal"!!! I'm ready to go again as soon as I pack!

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

I'm in the 60+ range: love the nightlife, but not 24/7! The Villa is great'cause you can be on the beach after a half-block walk.Unless you really want to travel around the island a lot, renting a car is more of a pain than not:parking is scarce. Best mode is renting a scooter. Best 4 me: hop a bus to town & cab it back when you've had enough shopping and crazyness. Kick back and have a cold one on the deck while you plan the next adventure. Bet ya could stay a month and still not experience all the history and activities the island has to offer.

Cozy, clean and like a hideaway!

What a great find! If you want to be in walking distance of Duval, then you might reconsider. But the drive by bike, scooter or car is very easy and the location is in walking distance of Smathers Beach! The "suite" is comfortable, clean and feels like home away from home. It includes a family room, a spacious bathroom and a kitchenette in the bedroom. The bed was very comfortable, with soft sheets and good pillows. Easy to control the temperature with a wall AC unit in the bedroom, which keeps you nice and cool at night. The area is quiet, which is great. No noise whatsoever. The patio outside the suite is spacious & covered, with really kitchy, cute patio decor & furniture and a ceiling fan. And of course, the hot tub! Would highly recommend the Beach Villas to anyone wanting to get away- you must do cozy & kitchy in Key West, and this definitely hits the spot! The owner of the property is also very nice and easy to work with. Two thumbs way up!

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

If you stay at the Beach Villas and want to get up to the north end of Duval: it's easy to take a cab or drive. The cabs never take more than 5 minutes to pick you up, and if you drive- there's a pay & park garage on the west side of the Westin on Front street. There are other garages that cost between $2-$4 an hour, and never fill up.

Great Getaway

The Beach Villa had a homey feeling. The expansive secluded back porch, complete with grill and hot tub was everything we were looking for. It was very quiet and the location was convenient to everything we wanted to do. We are already saving to go back. We liked the fact that we could prepare a small meal or were within walking distance to dine out.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Every single thing to do is a short drive away. We rented a scooter and did everything we wanted to do in the short time that we stayed. Loads of things to do and some of them don't cost you a cent...
