- Very Good
The condo was beautiful and clean. however, the bedrooms face Highway 1. Impossible to sleep. The balconies off the bedrooms are beautiful, but there was no reason to use them. All you could see was traffic. We did love having the bikes and rode them everyday. The condo is not actually in Key West. We are very active and rode the bikes into downtown Key West. It would have been very inconvenient to have to drive into town due to contruction and traffic.
Response from the owner Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed the amenities of our condo but it's unfortunate that you found it too noisy. It's very subjective as I have so many guests that say they were not bothered at all by any outside noises as evidenced by many other reviews of mine. I also have many guests that appreciate the 4 mile distance from downtown as the late night bar/music noise travels far and the congestion is all day long. I even have guests that say they particularly chose my location due to past experiences where they found downtown to be quite annoying. That's great that you used the bikes. I think they serve guests better than a car during the day as there is no parking challenges and you can get to some places quicker this way. There are so many great eateries within walking distance to my condo that many people say by day they enjoy our pool and at night stay close to home and enjoy the restaurants within walking distance. Anyways, thank you for your review. Judy Tomita
I chose this place to rent because it looked nice and it was affordable. I knew going in that it was not located on the Key West island, which was fine considering the condo came with bikes you could ride onto the island...What I experienced during my stay here is nothing short of Perfect!!! The entire condo was clean and spacious, everything inside the condo worked, the beds and all furniture were clean and comfortable, plenty of towels and linens, the showers, water presure and plumbing were excellent, the pool was clean, relaxing and private, the nights were quiet for sleeping and the gated community within the condo were friendly and fun. The bikes were the best part...10-15 minutes and you were on Duval Street, or the Southernmost Point, or Fort Zachery beach with no hassles what so ever, and I got some good exercise!!! I will definately stay here again!!!
Response from the owner Thank you soooo much for the wonderful review. Your description and complements are very much appreciated. We really try to make our guests experience memorable and I try to offer no less than what I would expect from a vac. rental. You are so right about the bikes being great and the short time and trip it takes to go anywhere. It's fun, good exercise and quality time together for sure. Please come back and stay with us again. We loved having you. So happy you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us. Judy
“Enjoyable stay in Key West”
Nice home. Clean home. Great value. We actually loved the location because it allowed us to ride the provided bikes into town each day and enjoy lazy strolls all over Key West. Nearby restaurants and stores offered everything within walking distance. We especially enjoyed the community pool, which was so empty, it was like we had the pool to oursleves for the week. Really appreciated the value compared to a hotel which would have been more $$$ with less to offer.
Response from the owner Thank you for the great review. We love our condo and yes our location is really close to soooo much, it's true. You definitely are right, it's way more affordable then a hotel with so much more to offer. Please come again. Judy
Beautiful house great experience will go there again :)
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your review. We loved having you stay with us and hope you call us again for your next visit. It was a pleasure hosting you and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Tee by The Sea. Thanks again.
“Comfortable enough but bring ear plugs to block traffic noise wh”
We rented this condo with another couple for a weeklong stay in late april/early May. Check-in (on a Saturday afternoon) was easy via a lockbox on site. On arrival, we found we were short towels and the drain in the bathtub in the second guest room was plugged. (Water over ankle-deep in taking a shower.) We called the owner, who was out of town and did not get back to us until late Sunday afternoon. She did take care of the issue promptly on her return to town. On the surface, the condo appeared clean. However, the floors could not have been mopped recently because the bottoms of our socks and feet were black after walking through the condo. Other guests have noted a problem with traffic noise, especially in the master bedroom. This is a big, big problem and will keep us from renting this condo again. The only saving grace for us was that we had brought earplugs and that did help somewhat. Potential guests also should be aware that this condo is not conveniently located to downtown Key West. If you plan to spend most of your time in Key West proper, this is not a good location for you. Also, for us, the weather was not that great -- it rained nearly every day. In fact, one afternoon, Key West got record rainfall of over 4 inches in a two-hour time span. Because of that, we spent more time in the condo than we would have otherwise. The condo is well-equipped in this case and comfortable enough for rainy days. Finally, the stairs in the condo are steep. One of the people in our party had a sprained ankle and arch and had extreme difficulty getting up and down the stairs. Anyone with mobility issues should be aware of this.
Response from the owner Hi, I do appreciate your review. I do want to respond to several of the issues stated. The condo is near the road but everyone's tolerances for noise is different and while the landscape buffers some of the noise, many of my guests say what they hear is negligible and not a bother. Second, yes I was out of town when you called about the drain and as soon as I was back in town we took care of that immediately. That issue was resolved. AS far as my condo not being in town, I never claim in any of my ads that it is in town. I clearly state that it is 4 1/2 miles from Duval St.which is old town. I clearly state it is 2 miles from the beach. It is walking distance and bike riding distance from many local favorite places but even the ride into Key West is a feature that many of my guests love since the bikes are available for travel. As far as the floors not being mopped, that is not usual as none of my guests have ever complained about that before, however, I will address it with my cleaning staff nonetheless. As far as the weather, well not a lot I can do about that.... take that up with mother nature. I think in the future you should read the entire property details more clearly to know where you are staying in relation to town and distances as it clearly appears you missed that part of my property detail page. We try to take every measure to make sure our guests are comfortable and that the condo is over and above what is expected as many of our reviews will show. I do take note of every review positive or negative and address every issue with expediency. So again thank you for your review and a quick tip if you ever visit Key West again... Don't expect the old town vacation rentals that are right in town to offer peace and quiet as the bands play til 4 am and the sound travels for blocks.
“We shall return”
This is a wonderful condo, clean and spacious and well equipped. Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As this states, it is a distance from downtown Key West but with a car is very convenient. The bedroom facing the highway is a bit noisy in the early am. We loved the rooster crowing in the morning. All the people in the complex were friendly and nice. We intend to rent again in the future.
Response from the owner Thanks so much for your review. We hope you will call us again when you plan your next trip. Judy Tomita
“Simply - Perfect”
The Condo was just perfect for a family vacation. It is located in a secure gated community just outside Key west offering some peace and quiet with easy access to everything. Key west is a short drive or bike ride away. The extras are awesome, everything one would need for a carefree Key west vacation like free bikes, beach chairs, pool floats e.t.c. The owner was also very helpful recommending fun things to do in Key west. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.
très bonne location... appartement vraiment très bien équipé (clim, lave vaisselle, électroménager, dvd, télé dans chq chambre + salon...), spacieux. la piscine est magnifique, grande et propre. 1 chambre (sur les 2) un peu bruyante (proximité de la US1) mais cela ne nous a pas dérangé. à 3.5 km environ du centre de Key West. location vraiment à conseiller...
We loved the condo, the pool, all the extras that came with the condo. We've rented house/condo's before and never had so many extras such as bikes, coolers, bbq's there was even laundry supplies and coffee/spices/oils. The condo had very nice furniture and was decorated very nice.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for taking the time to enter your review. We strive to set ourself apart from everyone else by offering the "extras" and maintaining a high standard of cleanliness and quality. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope we can be a part of any future trip to Key West by hosting you at Tee by the Sea, our condo.
“Reviewing Key West stay”
The condo was clean and well-furnished and kept. Nicely appointed details. The address of Key West led us to believe it would be within the city, but it was 4-5 miles outside downtown, and so we had to drive or ride our bikes (a little bit risky) to see the sites downtown each day, which proved a little inconvenient. Pool area in condo development was lovely.
Response from the owner Thank you for the review. I clearly state that my condo is just outside of Key West, less than 1/4 mile from the entrance to the island. It is 4 miles from downtown and I let anyone know that inquires. I'm confused as to the mention of the bike ride being risky as you are the only guest that has ever said that comment. I have been making that bike ride since I was 12 years old and it's quite beautiful and easy. The bike path is wide and clearly marked and easy to navigate. There is local bus service to downtown with an $8.00/week pass available as well which runs every 1/2 hour and the bus stop is right outside our complex. So comment about bike riding and getting to downtown in my oppinion is very skewed and not of the common oppinion from my guests as indicated by their reviews. But nonetheless I do appreciate your review.
