“Perfect place for a group of friends”
The Papaya place condo was a very good rental. It was very big, allowing 6 of us to stay there comfortably. Once we rented bikes, we were able to maneuver the island much better. The location is about 1.6 miles from bars and food. It's unfortunately outside of pizza delivery for most places that are open late.
“An enjoyable visit”
Everyone was very helpful with our arrival, the condo was clean and very attractive. Really enjoyed the wildlife sanctuary on the side, made it quite peaceful. The pool was wonderful, and the surrounding gardens were lovely. If you enjoy walking, go to the left side of the building towards the water, and theres a great walking path and beach also there-unfortunately it took me a couple days to discover it. All in all everything was terrific, and very relaxing
“Ideal for our family”
I booked this as a last minute family trip for spring break. My husband is very picky so I was nervous. We brought his mom and our 17 yr old daughter and 6 yr old son. Everyone loved it! My husband kept complimenting me on a good job finding it. It was way more comfortable than a hotel in regards to having the full kitchen, lots of space, and not relying on meals out all the time. All the people we met were very friendly, and we hung out by the pool and jacuzzi daily and nightly. There are ample bbq areas for everyone, and the jacuzzi felt amazing. They even have saunas in the pool bathrooms. We would definitely stay there again, the price is right and it is extremely clean. My only complaint would be that the master bed is not what I'm used to, I could feel springs in various places, but being that we were only there three nights it wasn't too bothersome. The entire place was stocked with everything you would need and then some. We would definitely rent this again in the future.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We are thrilled to know you enjoyed your visit and wanted you to know that a new mattress is coming in the near future. We look forward to your return visit! 5/24/12 -- as a addendum to this response, wanted all to know the mattress has been replaced with an oh-so-dreamy Sealy Posturpedic. Come stay with us and check it out!
“Disappointed with physical space”
We had been conversing and corresponding with Lida and found her to be both accomodating and a pleasure to work with. She does an excellant job! We arrived the day before my brother was to be married 11/11/11 and were very excited. The initial appearance upon arrival was wow, love the layout, love the colors, and knowing we were getting this and an ocean view, we were psyched. Upon walking into the master bedroom and bath, it had a wow factor except for the cheap quality of the comforter. The bathroom was a disappointment because there was a sign that the tub was not working tub. So, needless to say the initial excitement waned considerably. The promised "ocean view" for which we payed a higher price was a sliver of ocean which could be seen only if you stood in the exact right place. Big disappointment!! The biggest criticism was the condition of the furnishings and linen, the tiles in the second bathroom and the linoleum in the kitchen. To then find that the red dishes were chipped (a health hazzard) and the coffee maker was broken only added to our disappointment.The first morning the coffee spewed all over the counter and floor because the carafe lid didn't fit properfly. I think advertizing and having a higher price for a ocean view is dishonest.Overall the quality of some of the furnishings was lesser quality than we expected. Some friends were in a condo a floor above us which had no ocean view, payed less, and had a gorgeous condo with high quality furnishings. The pool and view of the ocean from the pool was great! I might add that if this was my place I would have a beachbag and cooler available for guests to use. We were appreciative of the soap, laundry detergent, and paper products. Having two sinks in the master bath was a treat for us.There should, however, be a liquid soap in each bathroom. If the aforementioned things were fixed then this review would be much better.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to review our home. It is unfortunate your visit was impaired by the items you mention; a quick call to our office would have immediately resolved some of your issues (ie; coffeepot, dishes). Please note that the description for this condo on our website is very specific that there is a view of the nature preserve, not ocean view. We hope you will consider staying with us again, allowing us to "wow" you at some time in the future.
the place was very nice. the only thing i found wrong was that i have not recieved my $150 key deposit back yet.
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We're glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. If you check with your credit card company, you will find out that your $150 key deposit was credited back on the day you departed. We look forward to a return visit.
Coming from the midwest and escaping to Key West was wonderful. This location was great for us. The secured entrance was nice. Very friendly people both staff and guests. Very nice pool. A nice view of the ocean. Not much beach but we knew that before we got there. This location is not real close to Duval or Mallory Square but we rented bikes so it was not a problem riding our bikes to all the activities.
“New Thanksgiving Tradition”
We loved the facility pool and spa. It's proximity was also great.
“We Love it!”
This is our (my girlfriend and I) 4th time together in this condo and we are looking forward to planning our next trip soon! The colorful décor and local artwork make it a charming alternative to the usual sterile pre-packaged looking beach condo or hotel room where you could be "anywhere USa" Its only slight imperfections add to a true Key West flavor and feels like a "home away from home." Facing the Mangrove side of the building (the quietest part of the complex) it has view of a nature preserve facing palm trees and lovely vegetation and even a bit of the ocean from the deck-- which is very private-- we drink our coffee in our robes on the deck in the morning Big eat-in homey kitchen . Master bathroom has great huge shower-only area, second bathroom has a regular sized working bath and shower. All rooms open onto the deck. We use bikes to go almost everywhere on the island but there is an assigned parking spot in a covered garage for a car. The grounds pools and tennis courts are the best on the island- tropical gardens, Olympic sized pool & hot tub facing the ocean. We take "drill and play” group tennis lessons with the resident pro and rent racquets right from the pro shop so we don't have to struggle with bringing them on an airplane. We love it!
My husband and I brought our 17 yrs old son and his friend down on spring break. Our condo was beautiful and combfortable. The pool and accomodations could not have been any better. The only thing that I believe would be helpful is if you would get a third key. Depending on ages of guest that are staying it would have been nice to have an extra set of keys. sometimes, I was at the pool, my husband went on a boat fishing and the kids would be at the beach or going downtown on their bikes so someone was always without a key...which was a little frustrating at times, not only do you need the condo key but a security door key!
“Nice unit - great pool!”
Comfortable home with lovely furniture, bedding, accessories. However, the kitchen and bathrooms could definitely use some updating. Great location with good security. The outside surroundings were beautiful - nice landscaping and a great pool area!
