Great place - exactly as described - with one of the best pools
Left on 04/02/2014 for a stay in March 2014 | Escape from Minnesota
This was a really great place...it's walkable to the beach, with a fantastic pool. The unit was nice...all tile floors, so bring slippers or extra socks. Very spacious with a great balcony. Be ready to look at yourself frequently when you're in the condo because there are a lot of mirrors everywhere. (Another renter at the pool told us his unit even had mirrors for closet doors in every room, and the hallways were mirrors!)
It was nice to be away from all the hub-bub of Duval street...especially since we have kids. This location is ideal for biking, which we did all week! :-)
I don't mind not having my bed made, but I was a little bummed to have to wash our towels constantly. I know this service doesn't provide housekeeping, but fresh towels (especially given how many you use to go to the pool or beach) would have been nice. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to review our home. It's always great to know our guests have enjoyed the home and Key West itself. Regarding towels, we supply two of each type towel (washcloth, hand towel, bath towel) for 6 people (max accommodation for this condo) which means there should have been 2 extra sets of them for your group of 4. If that was not the case, a quick call to our office would have remedied that situation. Next time you visit please contact us with any inconveniences; we can usually take care of it immediately so your full attention can be on enjoying your stay.
Memorial Day Visit

The service we received from at Home In Key West, was very good. Libby was thorough and the pre-arrival process, check-in and check-out processes were simple.
When we arrived at the condo, we found it to be very clean and well furnished with kitchen and bathroom items. While the bath towels were nice, the bed linen should really be replaced. We were concerned we might accidentally put a hole through the king sheets, due to them being thin. The interior and exterior furniture and décor were adequate, but could really use some updating as well.
The view from the condominium was very nice, and is at least as pretty as the view shown in the photos. We were cautioned by at Home in Key West that there is currently construction on balconies and there will be some noise. It was very loud, and anyone considering this location should be aware of this. Because we were informed ahead of time, we were able to plan pool time on the weekend and try to do other things during the week. Don't plan on a nap though! The pool and hot tub are very nice!
Regarding the location, it was nice to have the view of the ocean. If you want to be a distance from Duval street, and near a nice beach it is also a good location. Otherwise, you will spend quite a bit on cabs to get to and from Duval Street and nice restaurants. For four of us, it was $20 each way to get to Duval St. and other popular areas (including tip).
We would have rated this above average if the construction was not present and/or the furnishing were updated.
Great service by Gale at at Home in Key West!

At Home provided us with great service in finding a vacation rental. The Zen Ocean Garden was just as it is described so if you are looking for the downtown key west nightlife you will need to take a cab. Ocean views and breezes coupled with birds and butterflies made for a very relaxing vacation. The only thing I will say is that there is construction going on at this condominium and while at Home had warned us of it, we decided to roll the dice and go anyway. We lucked out because they were working on the other side of the condo but still had to schedule our pool time around the work. Its only temporary but worth asking about since the 'Zen-ness' would have been impacted had we been put in a different condo.

The condo was great, the pool was beautiful (a little loud this year) and Key West is always fun. The only issue is your agent who was unfriendly, rude, and not helpful at all. She was the only thorn in the entire experience. Read more
Response from At Home In Key West, Inc. - 03/22/2013
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. It is always great to see someone enjoy their stay so much that they return. It is regrettable that your interaction with our agent was unpleasant; I feel confident that your future contact with our office will exceed your expectations.
We look forward to your visit next year.

We loved our stay at the Zen Ocean Garden at 1800 atlantic. The Condo had all the things we needed and the beds were comfy. We had time to meet some of the residents and they all made us feel right at home. The pool is wonderful, looks out to the atlantic ocean. Key West is paradise.

Everything was great about this unit - comfort, cleanliness, beautiful grounds, the pool on the premisies. The only downside was that the nearest sandy beach was a mile away. Ideal for people that don't need the beach. Read more
Response from At Home In Key West, Inc. - 03/08/2012
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We are pleased to her you enjoyed your visit; we are a little confused about the sandy beach being a mile away. This condominium complex, located at 1800 Atlantic Blvd., is located next to Smathers Beach, the largest sandy beach in Key West, and Higgs Beach is less than a half-mile away in the other direction. In any case, we look forward to your next visit!

Great 4th of July
Left on 07/21/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | Spencer
A Zen Garden was a great spot. I visited here with my wife and parents for the 4th and we were very pleased. The master bed and bath are fantastic. The other bedroom is much more basic and is a bit disappointing compared with how great the master bedroom is, but we were fine with it. It's not a close walk to Duval, so you'll need some kind of transpo (bike, taxi, car) to hit up the action on the island. The parking garage was also under construction and this caused some issues considering we were there for a holiday weekend, but we parked when a spot opened and then left the car there for much of our stay. The pool on the property is fantastic-- very large and greats for swimming. Plus it's a close walk to one of the public beaches in the area. Our balcony was the perfect spot to watch the 4th of July fireworks, as those are shot from near the pier and our condo had a clear view of the whole show, without needing to battle the hordes congregating near the beach around the pier. All in all, a great trip.

We were nervous about booking over the internet but it was just like the pictures. The neighbors asked us to keep it down as we were laughing so loud in the living room at one am, so we just hung out in the master bedroom after 11 pm. Nice, clean and friendly. The pool area was good too. We did have to rent a car to get to downtown etc, but it was very inexpensive. The view was worth it and we did get peace and quiet when we wanted to.

A Zen experience in the Keys!
Left on 05/13/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | Brandy Rocky Tara Megan
I traveled to the Keys with my husband and my two best girlfriends. The Zen Garden Condo was absolutely perfect for our stay. The condo was eccentric in the decorations which we loved ~ great conversations were had sitting by the bamboo mobile, the mirrors in the living room are a nice touch and the statue by the door ~ well we kissed it for luck. The bathroom in the master room was awesome ~ tv, tile and enormous. The kitchen was big and had everything you could possibly need from coffee maker and coffee cups, to a blender, utensils, bowls and a microwave. Thanks to the blender, we could choose 'on the rocks' or 'frozen' for our margaritas! The twin beds in the guest suite were small, I would not recommend anyone of real adult size sleeping in there (my friends are small, so the small beds were okay for them...even though I think their feet were hanging off the ends...anyway).
Overall our stay was superb! The pool was very nice, clean and had an awesome view of the beach. We walked down to the beach easily from the pool area. $4 a person for a cab to Duval Street was easy on the wallet and the serenity of the location on the atlantic was well worth it. The view from the Zen Garden balcony was equally as nice ~ ocean on the left and botanical garden on the right. We even had an iguana visitor on the porch...nice touch! Loved this place. Wish it were a touch cheaper however, for a small group ~ this place was really nice and absolutely perfect!

the apartment was lovely...beds were comfortable. kitchen utensils,pots,pans,dishes,etc, all the essentials were more than adequate.
when service was needed,it was prompt.
the scenery is stunning from all windows.
the only drawback were the plants on the patio. it invited the iguanas, which ate they plants, which created dirt..it was not comfortable to sit out there.
but, we would return.
we were there for 3 very wonderful months.

Carol for at Home in Key West could not have been more helpful or patient. We were trying to set-up a few suprises for my parents 50th Wedding anniversary and she listened to our question and concerns nad helped with much more than simply renting a place to stay.
Help with ideas on appropriate activities as well as setting up a welcoming gift basket with wonderful fruits and cheeses to tie us over until we were able to stock up on necessities.
Everyone I spoke to at Home in Key West was friendly, helpful and went out of their way to help us plan our vacation. Extremely customer service oriented.

Beautiful facility, great pool area, condo was spacious and had a great view. Needs an upgrade on pots and pans (handles falling off) and a supply of toilet paper would be nice. Don't want to be running to market for paper supplies when your paying this amount for a unit. I would definitely stay here again.

We spent a week in Key West for our wedding/honeymoon and loved everything about our accommodations.

We will most certainly stay there again and rent through at Home Key West.
Condo was nice! Complex was dissappointing!
Left on 03/18/2010 for a stay in March 2010 | budgirl83
We recently stayed at 1800 Atlantic for a week. Our condo unit was very nice. I was, however, dissappointed with the 1800 Atlantic Complex. There are a few too many rules!!!! No coolers near the pool. Pool and hot tub close at dark. There is a tennis court. The first time my teenagers went to use it they were told they would have to sweep it first. Then the second time they went they were told that they need to have their own racquets to play tennis. Who travels with tennis racquets? There was a basketgall court with no rims. There used to be an exercise room, now it is an office. No place to toss a football..... My kids were pretty bored! It was pretty hard to feel welcome at the condo complex.
Luckily Smathers Beach is right next door.

We arrived in Key West aboard the Key West Express Catamaran. We took a ride with the bike taxi's to the At Home in Key West offices, we got there at 1:05p.m. very excited about our stay. The owner pulled up and went in the back door, all the time knowing we were on the front porch. The bike taxi guy even made a special attempt to tell her we were waiting. She told him, we are closed until 1:30 for lunch. She had no lunch in her possession. I knocked on the door she pulled the door open and with a very hateful tone proceeded to tell me they are closed until 1:30 for lunch. I asked if her name was Sharon she said NO, I asked if her name was Jenny, same hateful response, she then proceeded to tell me she was the owner! Imagine working for her, I don't think so!!
The only thing she had to do was give us the keys to the condo. Our sales associate Sharon told us we could check in as soon as we arrived because it had not be rented and would not need to be cleaned. Needless to say I found her to be rude and her attitude unacceptable.
Our condo A Zen Garden was nice. There was a broken lampshade that could have been replaced for very little. Only two small bath towels, and two washclothes in the entire unit! There were four of us! The unit was clean and furnished well. The televisions left much to be desired, 19 inch antiques.
Key West is a wonderful time and I plan to return for several weeks next year. Will I rent from At Home in Key West, probably not. I am a considerate person and hope to be treated the same, especially if I just handed you over one thousand dollars for a two night stay! One last thing, I accidentally called the office by mistake and told Gayle I'm sorry I dialed the wrong number, no response she was rude and hung up in my ear!

The staff at At Home In Key West was dismayed to learn about your displeasure. Our company strives to assure our guests enjoy their visit to Key West. In response to the comments on your visit:
Check-in time is 4pm which is communicated at the time a reservation is made, when a confirmation is sent, etc. When guests arrive early to the island, we offer to store their luggage until they are able to check in. We regularly remind our guests that an early check-in cannot be determined until 24 hours in advance as there is the possibility of last-minute reservations, and the housekeeping staff would need time to prepare the home between guest visits. That was the case here; a few days after Sharon confirmed this reservation, a guest reserved the property to depart that morning.
Our housekeeping staff went above and beyond to prepare this condo for an early check-in, without sufficient time to remove clean towels from the dryer. If you had contacted our office, we could have assisted you with that information as well as taking care of the broken lampshade.

The apartment is wonderful-clean, well cared for and with gorgeous peaceful ocean views from all rooms, overlooking a nature preserve. The beds arre comfortable, the master bedroom and bathroom is amazing, the kitchen is well supplied with cooking equipment, and the pool and hot tub are spacious and clean as pictured. It is minutes from the Key West airport, which means your vacation starts as soon as you get off the plane! Easy walking or biking to downtown Key West- we'd definitely love to come back here!

This worked best for our family, we had stayed in hotels before and the spaciousnesss of the villa was great. The balcony and the view was a nice place for breakfast every morning, it has a spacious kitchen. The pool area was nice with a large hot tub. The location was good, quieter than being down on Duval St. so it is good for families but not too far to walk or bike ride. It was nice having the underground parking. The twin beds are on rollers and my son said they rolled around which he didn't like. Bring your own beach towels and a clock, the only clock is on the stove in the kitchen. I would recommend the villa, we enjoyed staying there

We rented three apartments thru At Home in Key West for my 70th birthday.There were 16 of us with children from five to 15. The apartments were comfortable and nicely furnished. We used the tennis courts, pool, beach and area and had a great time being together. My allergic children went into an apartment where cats had lived and the rental company immediately found us another place.We were very happy with the rentals.

We loved this property. Key West is a great vacation destination. If you rent an electric car you can not charge it at night. I just gave the manager some extra money and he let me slip through the crack. The unit was very tastefully decorated. What a wonderful ocean view from all rooms.

A zen garden was a delightful condo, our visit was extremely relaxing. The condo is clean and well decorated, the master bath was awesome. The web pictures are accurate. This is the place to go if you want to experience the quiet side of Key West. The view from the pool was excellent, condos are beachfront. We enjoyed morning walks along the beach but one must drive or take a cab to the main part of town for nightlife or the sunset parties.

Dreaming Key West
Left on 11/07/2008 for a stay in January 2008 | Mathews
As beautiful as Key West is, we had trouble getting the kids (15 and 12) to leave A Zen Garden for it was such a nice place to be. The view was unbelievable, watching the cruise liners and sailboats come in and out on the blue waters to watching the moon on the ocean. The balcony was private due to the "reserve" on that side of the building and that was a nice feature as privacy is not easy to find in Key West. The location was convenient for many things (a nice beach, water sports, the pier) but a bit far of a walk to Duval Street if you were trying to make it a "quick" trip (but remember that nothing is to be rushed in Key West)! A Zen Garden was beyond a comfortable place to stay and it exceeded our expectations. We would all love to return one day.
