The place was awesome. As everyone says, the back bedroom is a bit noisy being right on Duval and next to Willie T's but still a great place. I found that leaving doors open for a nice breeze was irritating as the fire alarms would keep going off. Not sure if it was caused by the smoke from next door cooking or what but that was a bit of a nuisance. Not enough to deter me from staying there again though. As others have said, would be nice to have small tvs in each bedroom since that's what helps me to go to sleep but really my problem not the owner's I guess. Be prepared to walk up two small flights of steps. Can be a little tough if you have heavy suitcases. I ended up emptying my suitcase outside and carrying items in until I could comfortably carry the suitcase up the steps. Overall a beautiful well maintained place. Would definitely consider going back as long as I had more people to share the costs. Afterthought, a small inexpensive wireless printer would be nice for printing out work information, etc. I could not find a business area close that I could do that so would be nice if in the penthouse. This location is close to everything. It was rare that we took cabs or the bicycle transportation. Be sure to go to Hemingways and Truman and Butterfly museums. They were all awesome. Also small place around the corner called Locos for food and drink is a hidden wonder. Excellent and inexpensive-all outdoors. In key lime square I believe. Not advertised anywhere and we stumbled upon by accident.
Lovin' Key West
Fantastic Vacation at Duval Penthouse
Left on 02/12/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | Lovin' Key West
We loved the Duval Penthouse! Fantastic location, grocery half block away, liquor store around corner, pizza places nearby, and best of all, Willie T's next door where 2 of my favorite Key West musicians were performing while we were there. Loved all the porches/outside sitting areas and the pool. The inside was beautiful. Front bedroom is noisy nearly all night from the street, but use "white noise" or ear plugs.
A couple suggestions that would be beneficial: Make the Master bed so it doesn't squeak every time you roll over. Also, mattress was much too soft (but that is just my opinion). A small TV in each bedroom would be nice. A motion-sensor light at the back gate. A couple nights it was very dark when we approached the gate coming back, and hard to see to unlock gate.
Overall, loved the Duval Penthouse and we definitely want to stay again. Also, it was very nice of Capt. Mark to come and greet us! Nice to meet him and talk to him for a bit. Love this place! Read more

Condo was great. Weather not so great
Left on 01/24/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | Thompsons
We were very happy with the condo. It was as good as advertised. Lots of room for our family with adult children. Walking distance to almost everything important in key west. The owner Mark met us when we arrived even though we were delayed by weather until nearly midnight. The condo is vey well laid out for entertaining which was perfect for our family to spend time together. Since you front on Duval and Willy T's bar is next door you do hear their music but we just accepted that as part of the Key West atmosphere. We enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the people go by on Duval. Two evenings we cooked on the grill that is provided. The weather wasn't so great but heated pool was still welcome. I highly recommend this property and would return again.

We enjoyed the penthouse very much. The artwork was both extensive and amazing. The rental was spotless on arrival, and complete with all the supplies we needed. It was the first time we have rented a property where the owner showed up to make sure everything was ok. Very nice! The pool was a great bonus to have, and we used it frequently. Wish there were quicker access to Duval street..perhaps through the alley? The one downside to the penthouse is the noise from the outdoor bar next door. From about 12:00 in the afternoon to 12:00 midnight, the amplified sound of what has to be the worst band in Key West (got to be a game to try and guess which song they were attempting to sing) invades the unit. Especially the Duval Street bedroom. It was relentless. So, if you're not bothered by noise..this is definitely a high quality rental to consider.
Beautiful, perfect location...but Noisy
Left on 07/26/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Kim W
We loved the Duval Penthouse from the moment we entered the private courtyard. The pool is small but perfect for a group of adults who want a quick dip, the fountain drowns out any sound from the surrounding buildings and gives you that private oasis feel. The Penthouse is modern in design with wood floors, great appliances and breathtaking Peter Lik photography hanging on just about every wall. We did have an issue with a slider not being able to lock, but the management company took care of it right away. We grilled out while listening to the musicians performing at Willie T's and enjoyed all of the amenities this penthouse had to offer. Just an FYI: The Master bed was a subject for many laughs as it is very squeaky , the slightest movement will have that bed groaning in protest. The location is perfect with a balcony overlooking Duval street, beware of the slate tile it tends to get very dirty from the passing cars and trucks. With that being said, if you choose the Master bedroom you will hear all of the crazy antics of revelers well into the night and then the very loud noises of Willy T's as it closes for the night about 2:30 am, but if you are still out partying you wont mind it one bit. Although the 6:30 am street cleaning, garbage, recycle and delivery trucks are another matter altogether.Ear plugs bought at the local Walgreen and white noise from my laptop took care of that. Also keep all food tightly sealed as there are those pesky south Florida sugar ants that just love any crumbs you may leave behind. All in all we loved the unit and it's prime location. We walked everywhere and took a pedicab when we couldn't quite make that last trek home. Our trip was enhanced by this beautiful property and even the extra noise, it was a winner in my book. We would book it again for sure.

Nice but noisy
Left on 03/06/2013 for a stay in February 2013 | NH Native
This place had a lot of things going for it. It is a large and spacious place that was plenty of room for the 5 of us. Pretty well appointed as far as cooking, W/D etc and the location - if you want to be right in the heat of the battle of Duval St is great for the most part.
However, there is Willy T's right next door- and I mean spitting distance away- and that place really put a damper on our time as the place was ridiculously loud with loud music that started around noon every day and was supposed to stop at 12:30 PM - ya right! It was so bad that I had to 'try' and sleep with noise cancellation head phones on which is not what I had in mind. And then they started a leaf blower up at 7:00 am one morning that ran for an hour while the guy was literally blowing leaves off the roof of Willy's!!
On the bright side, if you're not opposed to the noise level and you're looking for a great place and location where you can walk to anything in Old Town than I highly suggest this place. Has a little wading pool that is great for chilling out and a great balcony that overlooks Duval St and is great for people watching.
beautiful house great location
Left on 01/24/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | rs
the house is great and looks exactly like the pictures on the web. the pros: spacious, clean, great location, well equipt with beach towels, extra linen, detergent for washing clothes etc. air conditioning worked well. outside eating area and grill. pool is small but nice after a day at the beach. kitchen had good dishes and cupboard had coffee and spices. Viking stove for cooking. grocery store right down street. mark, owner, wonderful and met us there to show us around and said to call if anything was wrong. cons: really only one and that is the house is right next to an outdoor bar that plays live music starting at noon. from noon till about 6pm it was 1 guy with a guitar and not so bad but the nights with bands was loud. 1 of the bedrooms is quiet but other 2 are loud. if you are a sound sleeper or wear ear plugs it might not get to you or if you are there for a few days.

At Home in Key West was a great company to work with. Friendly, efficient, accommodating. The beautifully decorated location overlooking Duval was great for people watching and close to everything. Big roomy penthouse with heated pool; 5 patios/balconies; laundry; grill; kitchen with all appliances,cookware and dinnerware; 2 nice bathrooms; master closet was big enough to serve as a nursery for the baby's crib. A wonderful place for our family vacation. The biggest downside was that Willy T's next door played the music sooo loud until so late and they emptied bottles every hour so that the people in the master bedroom got very little sleep.
Great time in Key West

Great Place to Stay!
Left on 05/15/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | Carla
The best location in Key West! This house was so clean and comfortable. The pool and deck were perfect for hanging out in the afternoon and also very private for after you've walked up and down Duval all evening and just want to come back home and cool off. The beds were comfortable, and bathrooms are very modern and spacious. We cooked on the grill which is on the patio right off the kitchen. There was even a cabinet full of spices, aluminum foil, and other little things you need to cook with but don't think about buying when you're staying away from home. The hardwood floors in the house give it a nice relaxing feel and we had an amazing time here. We can't wait to go back!

Location could not have been better. The only negative was the live music next door, which was nice until bedtime if you were in the master. Lots of balconies and space for everyone to read, sun bathe or just sit and people watch on Duval.
Nice but really loud
Left on 01/03/2012 for a stay in December 2011 | greg
We read the reviews and no one told us that the place is right next door to Willie T's, An outdoor bar with some of Key West's worst musicians. What they lose in pitch, they make up in volume. For our entire stay we were treated to horrible solo acts in the afternoons between 1 and 5 that were loud enough to overpower headsets on IPods on the deck. Every evening the show starts around 7 tor 8 and does not stop until 12am. If you are coming to party it is no big deal, but as mush as we enjoyed the nightlife it is a bit annoying when you have to leave your house every night or listen to that crap. Be clear, the master bedroom that is as nice as the pictures, shares a wall with the bar and the speakers are pointed right at it making it unusable between 1pm and 12am. There is virtually no wifi internet because you can't get on it. The woman from AHKW said that because there is no password to the wifi, everyone on Duval and at the bar can use it! This is stupid and unsafe. We informed the owner and AHKW on Monday about the wifi and that the outside lights for the stairs did not work. The owner said an electrician would fix it, but they never worked the entire stay.
On the positive side, the finished fixtures are top of the line. The best thing about this place was the private roof deck which was great for sunning, the pictures do not do this justice. The kitchen was gourmet and we loved using it, but it is time for some new pots and pans.
I would make clear that I think this place is a great choice if you are not bothered by being right next door to a really loud bar. If you find this a problem, don't stay here. I wish one of the flip key or trip advisor reviewers would have told me about the proximity to Willie T's before I shelled out over $7k so I will do it for all to do with as they wish.

I just want to say that everyone in our party totally loved the house. Plenty of room for everyone. Since the house is right beside Wille T's we had free entertainment nightly and when we closed the sliding glass doors the noise went away. Hopefully this house will be available during fanatasy fest because we will be there.
Best Location In Town
Left on 03/31/2011 for a stay in March 2011 | Hunter
This property is probably the best location in town. It is a small walk to any attraction including the nightlife, Hemingway House, marina, and dozens of great dining spots. The beach is further away, but not out of reach by bike. The check in/ check out procedure was easy. Parking was scarce, but that is the situation throughout the island. We had a great time.

I used this rental to sleep 6 guests and it was nice and spaciuos with each couple having a room for privacy. The Master was perfect for getting ready on my wedding day with my bridesmaids, mom and sister. Good party house, great balcony views.
Duval Street Fun
Left on 10/21/2010 for a stay in October 2010 | Spartan213
We traveled as a group of six and the house seemed to fit us perfectly. It really was even better than we would have hoped. The balcony overlooking Duval was a great way to spend the end of the night and the sun deck was a great place to have a cup of coffee in the morning. As far as location goes you couldn't ask for anything better. Right across the street from Margaritaville and a Starbucks, and in the heart of Key West.
Absolutely the Best Location
Left on 08/27/2010 for a stay in August 2010 | Tracie
I have to say this property is the best location you could have in Key West if you want the Duval Experience. We came down to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday with our grown children...party of 8. The property was perfect for all our needs. We were greeted right away if any questions or concerns. No vehicle needed; close to all restaurants, entertainment, grocery store, drug store and banking. Back entrance to the property, which I really did like for privacy factor. We felt very safe at all times. I thought the pool was small but it was very quaint and ended up working out just perfect. At Home in Key West were wonderful to work with on our reservation and very helpful throughout our entire trip. We had a wonderful time...highly recommend this property and hope to return again.

We happened upon this penthouse after the original house that we rented was less than desirable! We were completely "wowed" by this property! Everything was absolutely perfect! The artwork and decor was amazing and the entire house was clean and very well furnished! The location was prime and the management was very nice to work with. We really loved this place and would definitely recommend this place to our family and friends! It's the perfect Key West getaway!

Great houses that are in a great location. The houses are beautifly done and the Duval Condo is really incredible. Be aware that it is on Duval and is very loud at night, but if you are comfortable with that it is a great place to stay. A great house for entertaining.
