We were told we would need nothing, imagine our surprise at having to find toilet paper at 9:30pm in an unfamiliar town. No toilet tissue or paper towel. The place was dirty. Everything was very dusty. The decorations, pictures, whatnots, etc. were covered and looked as if they hadn't been touched in months. All in our party started sneezing and stayed stuffed up the whole time we were inside. The sofa sleeper was broken so no one could sleep on that. My husband and I slept in separate beds in the upstairs room. We had to wear shoes because the floors turned our feet black in a short trip from downstairs up to the bath and down again. Propane bottle was empty, outside furniture broken...just a few things to start. When I complained when I turned in the keys I was told "well you should have called", no I'm sorry or anything. I probably will not be back to Linger Longer. One of the condo's in the same complex was nicer, cleaner, and cheaper. We may contact them next year. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to review our home. It is alarming to hear what you encountered here. I can only reiterate what you were told at check-out; if you contacted us we could have made it right during your stay vs. living with it all week long.
This home was inspected before your arrival; can't fathom how all the items you list could have been missed. I do apologize that you were not happy here and look forward to exceeding your expectations next time.

Stayed at Linger Longer. Great location once we found it. Clean plenty of linens. Great to have both front and back decks. Pool was convenient. Only bad thing was the rooster out back that never shut up all night/morning. Also I didn't like the fact we had to strip beds do laundry and take trash out. You don't in a motel. We reserved thru flipkey. They were easy to communicate with and quick. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to review our home. Glad that you enjoyed your visit, even with early morning cock-a-doodle wake-up calls.
There is a distinct difference between staying in a motel and staying in a vacation rental. You're right; you are not asked to strip beds and remove trash from a motel, and you get daily maid service. Vacation rentals are more like staying in your own home, where you can cook your meals and have privacy for the time you're there. Starting the laundry and removing trash is typically part of a vacation rental agreement.
We hope that does not deter you from staying with us again.
A relaxing holiday in paradise.

We stayed at Linger Longer with our two girls (2 and 4 years) for two weeks and had a really wonderful time. The appartment was comfortably furnished and details such as the girls' room painted to resemble a beach setting and the pool right out front made it feel like home. Linger Longer is within walking distance of almost all of Key West's main attractions (our rental car spent those two weeks in the parking space) but without the buzz and noise that goes with them. The name is program, we would have liked to Linger Longer!

We had a wonderful stay here. The place was larger than its appears with 2 bathrooms which was nice, super close to town, museums, harbor and shopping. The pool was right out the front door which was great because we have 3 young kids. The pool maintenance guy did tell us our littlest one was not allowed in the pool which was a little off-putting since the pool seemed vacant most of the time. He said it was for sanitary reasons. We went to the beach with her instead, and brought the baby monitor to swim in the pool while she napped which we really couldn't have done anywhere else. The house was stocked with just about everything you'd need, even a pool lounger which we enjoyed. Few options on tv, no movie channels, so bring your own. Unit backs to a road which we found helpful but some may not, we heard some loud partying and found a beer bottle in the backyard the next day, but it hardly bothered us. Unit was very clean and cool, master bed was little hard but plenty of linens and pillows. We went during off season so got a great rate and lucked out with perfect weather, I would stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful trip.

How I wish we could have lingered long at the Linger Longer Condo!! My husband and I spend a week here. My mom and 18 year old sister joined us for the last 4 days. the condo is perfect, with your front yard being a pool. The back opens onto a street, which makes drop off and pick up super easy. You are a very few walkable blocks from Duval Steet, yet the annex is so quite and peaceful. The condo was so perfect and relaxing. A few nights we just stayed in an BBQ, the rest of the nights we where out and about!! Second time renting with at Home Key West and would only rent with them, and in Truman annex. Read more

We traveled to Key West with our 2 children, ages 10 and 8. The location was quiet but very accessible to Duval Street and Mallory Square.

Sweet place. Nice accomodations inside. Front porch looks out onto pool instead of back porch. Back porch has fence with with locking door that backs up to street. It did provide advantage of drop offs and pick ups for the family. Loved the double french doors off the back. There was some work being done on the poolhouse and an adjacent neighbors place that required concrete work, which was a little annoying. The pool being so close was a nice feature. I liked being downtown, a short walk to the Courthouse deli where I would get my cafe con leche in the am. We could walk anywhere. Some noise at night but it is downtown Key West. I would like to leave the kids at home and go down with just my wife next time. We ate at Red Fish, Blue Fish, Antonio's, Upper Crust Pizza, Hogfish(on Stock Island), Santiago's Bodega. I don't drink but there are plenty of places to do that, too.

We had a great two weeks and wish we could "linger longer." Nice decorated, spacious, well-equipped kitchen. CLEAN - thank you very much. This is a well cared for unit. Loved the poolside location and the friendly neighbors!

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FACILITY. IT'S LIKE HOME. I WOULD RENT THIS UNIT AGAIN. IT'S CLEAN, HAS A FULLY EQUIPT KITCHEN ALONG WITH BEDDING AND TOWELS. IT EVEN HAS A WASHER AND DRYER. THIS FACILITY IS CLEAN AND VERY COMFORTABLE. I WOULD ALSO RECOMMEND AT HOME IN KEY WEST. THE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN MYSELF AND AT HOME IN KEY WEST WAS TERRIFIC. GAIL EVEN PROVIDED ME WITH PICTURES, MAPS AND OTHER HELPFUL INFORMATION. THE AFTER HOURS SERVICE IS ALSO EXCELLENT. RESPOND QUICKLY AND ARE VERY THOROUGH. THANKS FOR MAKING OUR EXPERIENCE IN KEY WEST SPECIAL!!!!!

We had a blast here. This unit is so convenient to Duval and the party side, but yet it was peaceful and quiet. It was so easy to unload from the street. The pool was right out our door. The inside was better than the pictures. It was very well stock with kitchen amenities.(The fry pans could use updating) Great to have a Grill. Looking forward to returning.

The management at At Home In Key West made it extremely easy to find and rent a property in Key West, Fla. It is extremely economical to rent a home instead of staying at a hotel. At check out all we had to do was hand in the keys. Linger Longer is the perfect home for a family of four. The fenced backyard is private and secure. There is a gas grill and large table to enjoy your evening meal. There is a pool directly across from the house. It gives you the feeling of a private pool with the Florida palms and trees surrounding the pool area. The inside of the home was immaculate and kitchen had all of the essentials. The decorating and furnishings were chosen with great care. Walk out the back gate of the property and walk two short blocks to Duval St. This is where you will find all the bars, restaurants, and shops. The location of this property is perfect to enjoy the action, but it is away from the noise! We will defineatly rebook this property next time we visit Key West!

The staff of At In Home Keywest was very friendly and helpful. We arrived after the office was closed, and the directions for the mailbox and our keys and information were perfect. Everything went off without a hitch. We had one little problem when we arrived at Truman Annex. The guard refused to look at our papers and sent us to the wrong condo. Apparently there are 2 condos with the same number. When we discovered the mistake, I went back and discussed it with him and he finally directed us to the correct spot.
After that, our stay at Linger Longer was the best. The home had everything we needed in the kitchen, and everywhere else. You really only need to bring your personal items and everything else is there. We loved the pool right outside and the private patio with a gas grill. And the place was immaculate, neat and well decorated. The Master bedroom was beautiful with French doors leading out to a private deck.
The location was perfect, just a few blocks walk to Duvall street, and Mallory Square one way and Hemingway's House and the Lighthouse the other way.
We always felt very safe, with locks on the doors and gates.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Key West. I have already recommended the property and At Home Key West to some close friends.
A nice escape from the snow!

This was a great place to stay, especially with our 3 year old. The photos online of the property did not do it justice - it was very nice and clean. The kitchen was well apportioned - our only problem was not being able to find the food disposal switch. The central location was great - we were able to walk to the beaches, downtown, the wharf area all within 15 minutes. It was also quiet and away from the touristy/singles bar scene so early bedtimes and naptimes weren't an issue. Having the pool (and the toys available from the unit) was perfect. We also loved that the unit was non-smoking. We would highly recommend this property for your vacation.

We have rented vacation homes before. This property was lovely and as promised. The only downside was the proximity of the pool which made for a bit of noise, but not most of the time. It was clean with a wonderfully equipped kitchen and a lovely backyard patio, also a bit noisy from the street traffic and air-conditioning units (not needed). The place was very comfortable and conveniently located near downtown and the beach. Get good directions before arriving as the complex is confusing. We were told to bring beach towels but we didn't need them as the house had many. Neighbors we met were very friendly.
There was plenty of room for us and our guest and with the ceiling fans and breeze always blowing air-conditioning was not necessary and not used. The rental agent was responsive to our calls.
Linger Longer makes you want to.

Linger Longer was a wonder cozy townhome. The friendly neighbors & seeing the security guard in this gated community gave a piece of mind to have a peaceful vacation.
The main drag of Duval is 2 blocks away & sunset celebration on Mallory Square is only 3 blocks the other direction. Walking right out the back gate gave another great sense of our privacy to visit all the hot spots on the island from this perfect central location.
With the pool out front & two private outdoor sitting areas in the back, it was convenient & restful place for a vacation.

The property was wonderful. The location was excellent. Condo was well appointed and the grounds were beautifully landscaped. The pool area was right outside the front door, a great place to relax.
The only issue we had was that the dryer didn't work. We had hoped to wash and dry clothes that we had brought in an attempt to pack light. Also, we had to wash towels for bathing. Maintenance was unable to fix the dryer saying it would need to be replaced. We spent some time at the laundromat; not something you want to do on vacation. These things happen, it was not due to a lack of concern by the property manager or the property being run down. The property was very nice.
Overall, the condo was great. Very comfortable and nicely furnished.
