What Past Guests Are Saying
This estate is perfection!
I rented this house for my extended family when my sister got married! We had a perfect time. The pool and hot tub were awesome. The house is breath taking. Parking is on site. My sister got ready here and we took photos on the spiral staircase outside. This house was a priceless part of our wedding/family reunion. We were not disappointed about anything. It was better than we imagined.
A large group of us stayed here for a big birthday weekend and we had a blast. Everyone was very nice. The house was great. There was lots of room and very clean. We had everything in the house that we needed! We all were very pleased. We will rent it again soon!!!
Amazing time in a beautiful house!
We rented this home for my 40th birthday - 8 adults, mostly couples; the home was absolutely fantastic! This home has so much character and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Every couple had a private king suite with private bath; the beds were incredibly comfortable! I would highly recommend this house for groups of friends or families.
The outdoor dining area was where we spent most of our time, day and night. The kitchen has everything you need, and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Me and my friends loved this home, and look forward to visiting again in the very near future.
High Point, NC
What a great house! This house was everything we wanted. Really clean and the back pool and spa are great. We have already talked about booking it again! At Home Key West did a great job!! Thanks!
We (10 of us) stayed at the Victoria house for a week to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Six adults and 4 teens, and in spite of the rainy weather all week, we had a wonderful time. It is a great location, and has everything you could need provided with the house. We asked for a can opener, and very quickly, a new electric can opener was delivered. The beds were very comfortable and more than enough dishes and cookware were prvided. The pool was not quite as big as we expected, but most of us preferred the hot tub anyway. Couldn't ask for a better spot!!
Family of Nine
Wonderful Family Time
The house is perfect for a family and/or group. The kitchen is well equiped and there are plenty of bathrooms, bedrooms, etc so all are comfortable. The air conditioner works very well on all levels of the home so sleeping was good. The backyard is great for outdoor activities and very private. Our only disappointment was how noisy the street is way into the night but that is location and nothing can be helped about that.
Palm Beach Gardens, FL
The house was even better than the pictures. I would definitely stay here again.
70th birthday celebrant
Beautiful home! The updated bathrooms and kitchen were lovely. When the outdoor grill did not work properly, a call to the management resulted in an immediate replacement.
The location of our home was perfect for the activities we planned. My husband and son went fishing daily and it was just a short drive to the marina. We were able to walk everywhere from this home. It was a great trip.
Fox Point, WI
The Victoria House provided the "perfect" setting for an excepti
The property provided the perfect solution for our group. We needed private sleeping /bathroom accommodations for 4 couples as well as common areas for the entire group. The layout was remarkable. The 3 private decks off the main bedrooms were a nice touch. The kitchen spilled out to the outdoor area which included a pool, hot tub, lounge, outdoor eating area, grill, private laundry facility and master bedroom & bath off the pool. And...the tropical vegetation surrounding the property was truly awesome. The house exceeded all expectations!
The location was directly in the middle of Key West so we were close to everything and anything. Our group rented bikes for the week. This made the trip exceptionally fun as we were no more than 5 minutes from any destination. The area was safe, the property was clean and the "At Home" staff was wonderful. Every request was met and the "can do" attitude was refreshing.
The best indicator is the, "would you return" question and all responses from our group are a resounding Yes!!
Poor upkeep. Good location.
Many utilities were broken. A great location but not a well maintained place.
Response from At Home In Key West, Inc. - 02/09/2012
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. The two items that were in disrepair during your visit have been fixed. The oven part that was on order did not prevent use of the oven thankfully. The doors that had been damaged by a previous guest were a custom order that unfortunately took some time to arrive but they are now in place.
This home continues to offer our guests a memorable Key West experience that they will remember for years to come.
Nice House, Great Location
This is the 2nd time that my family and I have rented the Victoria House located at 806 Truman avenue in Key West, and unfortunately we noticed an obvious drop in the quality of this rental house.
First, the positives. Victoria House is a perfect rental for a large extended family with five bedrooms, five full baths and two 1/2 baths. The location on Truman avenue is close to Duval Street, but far enough away to avoid most of the nightlife noise. Multiple king beds is a big plus as is the separate "king pool suite". The off-street parking is also very convenient, and the management company did an excellent job of cleaning the house for our arrival.
Now for the negatives. Since our last stay at the Victoria House, both the house and outside landscaping show a bit of wear. The bedding was old, worn and stained, many of the outside potted plants were dead or dying, and the tree over the off-street parking drops sap that make the use of this off-street parking almost useless. The walls between the upstairs bedrooms are very thin, and you can hear any movement above you on the third floor due to the wood plank floors. We had a problem with the management agent related to some previous damage done to the kitchen patio doors, but this damage is probably corrected by now. Finally, we had to rearrange the kitchen cabinets to actually effectively use the kitchen, and there is very little kitchen working counter space.
All in all, the Victoria House is certainly not worth the 50% higher premium price charged over the Christmas and New Year's Holidays. Hopefully, the owners/management company will consider replacing all of the sheets and bedspreads as well as correct the tree sap problem over the off-street parking area that has been mentioned numerous times in other previous reviews of the Victoria House.
Response from At Home In Key West, Inc. - 01/30/2012
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. Since this was your second time renting this home, you would know that it is a historic home, not insulated as our modern homes would be and the kitchen space is the same as it was on your first visit. The whitefly that drops sap from trees is an island-wide situation; trees have been treated and the whiteflies are moving on. We will certainly look at the bedding; this is the first we've heard this comment and it certainly could have been resolved while you were here if you had voiced this concern. Lastly, the kitchen doors that had been damaged by previous guests took time to replace as they were custom-made. We made the entryway available to you by fastening the shutters so you could use them and lock them for security; we did the best we could under the circumstances and apologize if the resolution was not satisfactory.
Mark and Lynn
Very comfortable and enjoyable stay on Key West!
Right from the start the people of at Home In Key West were terrific to work with. They provided excellent customer service, and were most accomodating. The Victoria House was a great place for our group of 12 friends. Hanging-out in the back by the pool was great fun. The location near Duvall Street, and half-way between Mallory Square and the beaches on the other side of the island was perfect. We mostly walked everywhere! We had rented two cars for the drive from the mainland, and it was nice having off-street parking for them, although it's a tight fit for two mid-size cars. The Victoria House provided very comfortable accomodations for our large-ish group. It's a terrific place to rent.
We loved the house, the location and the pool. I wish I had known that the third floor queen bed was not in a private bedroom and was open to the stairway.
Wonderful Vacation spot in Key West
Our family (11 of us) was in Key West to celebrate my mother-in law's 80th Birthday. We had a wonderful time at the Victoria House. It had plenty of space, beautifully furnished and in a great location. I would highly recommend at Home in Key West as an agency to work with to find a vacation property in Key West. Libby was fantastic to work with.
Comfortable old home inh delightful setting
Overall we enjoyed it with five adults and seven children. Had trouble with the air conditioning on the third floor and was told it needed a new unit. It became tolerable with fans blowing cool air from the second floor to the third. Street noise in the front bedrooms. Large tree over the front parking area dripped sap which attracted ants so we could not use this area for parking.
Response from At Home In Key West, Inc. - 07/26/2011
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We want you to know that the a/c on the 3rd floor has been replaced and the large tree in front has been treated for the insect that was causing the sap. We are glad to know you enjoyed your vacation and welcome the opportunity to assist with your vacation plans in the future.
Charleston SC and Massachusetts
We came to Key West for a sister's 50th birthday. There were 10 women. The house was perfect! So much charm. We spent a ton of time in the back yard in the pool. The house is in a great location where we could walk to everything. This was the sixth 50th birthday party we have done and I say probably the best. The house made it!
One complaint - the coffee pot is too small!
Thanks for a great time!
Key West Vacation
I am happy to report that my trip to Key West was fantastic. Carole with at Home Key West took care of every need we had and provided excellent recommendations and quality service. Our house was clean and comfortable. I have already recommended atHomeKeyWest to a few friends who are thinking of traveling to Key West in the near future.
Memorial Day Memories
Five beds/baths for a fabulous time
The charming house was well-equipped, cool, and spacious. My husband and I particularly enjoyed the "poolside bedroom." It was perfect for our son's wedding weekend with family and groomsmen staying in one location. The bride also used it as a central location for flowers, dressing, bridesmaids. We loved the pool and outside decks as well. The two refrigerators came in handy.
Sun City Peachtree,Griffin Ga.
6 retired couples rented a 12 pass. van, drove to Key West.We stayed at the Victoria House, We arrived on Sunday, The keys were easy to find, the house was just as described on line. The beds were good, We sat arround the deck in the morning drinking coffee,making plans for the day, and usually back to the pool in the afternoon. With a group of 12, we had no trouble getting in to resturants. Everyone is ready to come back.
Good Old Town Location, beware the chickens!
Just a few blocks off Duval on Truman, we could get everywhere we needed by foot, electric car or scooter within minutes. Huge house with many, many sitting areas, ample bedrooms, and nice deck/pool area. We had 10 people in our party and had both privacy and adequate room to sit as a group.
If you do rent this location - bring ear plugs!!! My only complaint is that the roosters (a.k.a. Key West's famous feral chickens) start early and crow for 3-4 hours. Half the house got used to them, I never did. In retrospect, it is my fault for not seeking ear plugs earlier, but I didn't.
Relaxing week in Paradise
This house was great for the four of us couples that rented it for a week. The house had everything you could ask for. Great kitchen, plus an extra fridge outside by the pool and hot tub. Lots of room so you never felt like you were on top of each other. The only negatives I had were that at night road noise in the front of the house was loud and all the the tv's in the bedrooms had terrible reception, but we didn't go to Key West to watch tv or sleep a lot so it was worth it!
Thanksgiving in key west...lots of turkeys !
3 days would be plenty in this decitant city.Entertaining but with an overgrowth of homeless it puts a burdon on tourism.Our house was also broken into. They climbed a 6' fence and entered our obviously rented home on Truman ave (which is very noisey with traffic..all hours) I liked the town but for a $1000 a night don't stay in this house..its marked and ever burgler knows when your coming and going.
Response from At Home In Key West, Inc. - 12/13/2010
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. It is unfortunate that you were unable to enjoy your stay in this home which is enjoyed by guests all throughout the year as can be seen from the full calendar of reservations and rave reviews it has received.
World renowned for its history, proximity to the only living coral reef in North America, and eclectic nightlife, Key West is a unique vacation destination, enjoyed by millions of tourists annually. We would welcome the opportunity to assist with your vacation plans in the future to show you what it is they love about it.
Sunflower State visitors
Had a great time at Victoria House.
We so enjoyed our stay at Victoria House. There were 4 couples staying in the main house and one person in the pool house. We spent a lot of time on the back porch area and in the hot tub & pool. Loved the kitchen and cooked a great meal there. The rooms were great except that the front bedroom had a lot of street noise from Truman Street. Would recommend the Victoria House to others with a large group. Great to have so many bathrooms!!!
The house was Fantastic and so was the service!
We come to KW every year and have stayed many different places. The Victoria house was by far the best. It was pure luck that we got this house. I guess I waited to late to book the trip and our normal house on South ST. was already taken. Next year, we will stay at the Victoria house again! At home in KW is excellent to deal with. They followed up with us and gave us great service!

50th Wedding Anniversary
Upper Chichester, Delaware County, Pennsylvania
Our 50th Wedding anniversary with our Family
Victoria House was beautifully decorated.
The accommodations were exellent for our family and everyone could have their private time if needed. .
Appliances needed were in excellent condition. The children were in the pool daily. The patio was a family gathering place. Everything was within walking distance. Bikes were rented and many enjoyed the night life in Key West
My family loved Victoria House and would stay there again.
Spacious, great location, walking distance to everything
This house was perfect for our vacation. We were able to walk everywhere along Duval street. Spacious, the pool and hot tub were nice. Lots of outdoor seating on the patio. All the balconies were great too. Overall we loved our stay. The only downside was there was no pantry. We brought lots of groceries and didn't have any place to put the food. Overall it was an excellent home and we would definitely rent this house again.
Construction noise makes a great alarm clock!
We had a group of 11 stay at the Victoria House for my birthday. The house was pretty darn perfect. Very comfortable & big but still very "homey". The only major issue was construction. EVERY morning, except Sunday, by 7 AM we woke to the sound of construction. Also, due to the construction, the patio was pretty dusty/dirty. My friends & I really enjoyed the house and location and would definitely stay there again when construction is done. I think they should give a "construction discount" until it is finished. :)
Mad at myself
My family stayed at the Victoria house for ten days in March. In late fall of
2009, I received a letter from the rental company that there would be
construction occurring next door to this property. Mistakenly, I did not
heed their warning and decided to proceed with the rental as planned. The
construction next door is actually a motel and the concrete saws,
jackhammers and nail guns were completely unbearable. We could not sit
outside because the noise was so bad and there were huge plumes of dust
drifting into the pool area. To their credit, the rental company was
awesome and worked immediately to find us another place to stay.
Unfortunately, nothing was available that was suitable to our party size and
makeup. When we arrived, the pool was filthy and when a pool man DID
show up, he told us that there was no chlorine in the pool and that we
could not use it for two hours. Try telling four children on a hot day that
they cannot use the pool. Bummer. The house itself was beautiful on the
inside and the rooms were spacious and had nice details. We did have a
problem with ants on the third floor but a call to the rental company had an
exterminator over within hours. This house should not be rented until
construction is complete next door and even then I would exercise
caution...the motel cannot be more than 20 feet from the property line of
this home. It's a terrible shame because the motel has ruined what could
be a lovely property.
Victoria House review
Loved the house setup and furnishing. Loved location.
The family all slept well and was very comfortable.
Major issue was ant problem. We had ants everywhere and I feel that house
really needs treated and treated and a regular basis. It was very disturbing.
This can and should be corrected. also another insect was biting on the
Secondary issue: Construction next door make it almost impossible to enjoy
back deck and pool area during day. One day they even worked from 7AM -
7PM. We had to go over and ask them when they would stop! I was told of
construction project when I asked if there were any negatives to property
but it really was loud and annoying.
Things that need corrected : Coffee maker in kitchen leaks all over kitchen
counter when using.
Still loved house but please correct insect problem.
beautiful house - we had the perfect vacation.
I recently got married in Key West and my family rented the Victoria House for the week before the wedding. my 2 sisters, their husbands, my 4 year old nephew, my parents and my fiance stayed at the house for the week. It was perfect. The house is so spacious and comfortable. Every space is usable with plenty of room to spread out. The house was in immaculate condition with visits from the groundskeeper and the pool man. The location was amazing - easy to find and within walking distance to Duval St. and many great restaurants. The parking was also very convient. We held a cocktail party at the house for 30 people, doing most of the cooking ourselves. Everything turned out great. The kitchen was well stocked and the outdoor grill is huge. There was nothing that I would change and plan to rent it again with my friends soon!
Great House. Needed Cleaning.
House was beautiful. On a busy main road so parking could be an issue depending on time of day. We arrived at 6:30 PM...hours after house was supposed to be ready. House had not been cleaned. There were no linens. Had to call for cleaning and it took someone 45 mins to arrive. Other than the cleaning issue house was great.
Love, love, love
We had an absolutely perfect time. The house was beautiful, the kitchen was stocked well with plates and glasses, the pool area was fantastic, etc. Our group's only complaint was that we couldn't stay in the house and live there forever.
Fantastic House for a great weekend
I stayed at the Victoria House with 10 friends for an extended weekend in August and had an excellent time. The house is centrally located in Key West making it easy to get to Duval St. and any other attractions. Though for a majority of the weekend we stayed in the house enjoying the pool and outdoor areas. We were very impressed with the layout of the home and it was immaculate when we arrived. I highly recommend this property for large groups looking for a great place to stay in Key West.
Outstanding Rental in Key West
I can truly say that this was the best vacation experience I have ever had in Key West. We have rented several times through At Home in Key West, but this house was the best of them all. Very roomy, and the decor was beautiful. My large family had their own space and never felt like they were on top of each other. The only issue we had were the ants which we never were able to get rid of. I called the office and they sent over an exterminator who sprayed immediately. Unfortunately that is part of living on the island. It would not deter me from renting this house in the future. I would highly recommend this house for large families. Pricey, but well worth it.
We had a great stay at The Victoria House and would recommend it to anyone especially groups with 3-4 couples as the house works well for groups given the four separate bedrooms all with their own bathroom. The house is well maintained and nicely furnished with a adequate but small pool. The only real negative is that the televisions are outdated and their is no sound system that allows you to use an Ipod. A minor point given how nice the house is. We would return the house without hesitation.

Annual Friends Vacation
For the past two years a group of us (8 in total) have vacationed together. This year we chose Key West and The Victoria House as our destination. In EVERY phase of the rental process the staff at At Home in Key West, Inc. were fabulous! We really didn't think the trip could be any better until we arrived at the home. The grounds are beautiful and the home was spotless! A big kudos to the cleaning staff...they earn their money! There isn't anything you need/want that you couldn't find in the house. From glassware to appliances to pool toys, this house has it all. All we ever wanted was to stay longer! If you are thinking of going to Key West...you need to rent this home and rent from At Home in Key West! It's everything the spirit of Key West is and more!
This is a wonderful home. Beautifully decorated and stocked with just about everything you could need for a vacation away from home. It has just as many bathrooms as it does bedrooms which makes having a house full of relatives much easier! :) Everyone at At Home in Key West was really helpful and great to work with! I would definitely recommend both this home and At Home In Key West.
