“Great townhome in great location”
We completely enjoyed our stay and you can't beat the location. Only minor complaint was no WiFi, cable was horrible and no DVD player. Honestly, I know it's vacation and it's Key West, no need for TV or internet but I'm self employed and needed to check email and we did have one monsoon day and it would have been nice to have had decent TV or DVD to watch movies.
“Great location, rental is somewhat dated”
The location is excellent. easy walk to Duval st. Close to taylor state park which is the best beach in Key West. Interior of the rental is dated, particularly the bathrooms. The rental was also very close to the pool. Overall, I would recommend.
“Keys amazing / House Not So Much”
This had the potential to be adorable, But had many unnecessary issues. Front door only opens half way, making it hard to bring in luggage etc. 2 other doors in house stick bad too. Ice Machine produces about 30 cubes a day. so a constant ice trip in 85/90 degree weather is needed. There is only 1 TV in the whole place! And its small. 19". No tv /music or anything in either bedroom ??? Rooms are small & right next to each other so you hear everything. And there is no way they were queen beds!! Both Def Full size only! **Bathrooms! Omg! WTF? 1 bath is so small that you cant soap your body & shave legs cause your constantly under the water, & knees hit the broke down vanity when on Toilet. The other bath has a shower that has a curtain wrapped around the entire tub because of leaks so you were constantly being stuck to the curtain. One mistake & the dining table downstairs is flooded. The decor is a mix match of everything - African/Oriental & beach ? All in the same room. The pull out couch sticks and is a work out to get out and in, and painful to sleep on cause no padding. The back porch was nice to sit on, but very hot. This is the only condo to not have a fan on porch. Check out - When they say 10am, they mean a Mean/nasty man banging on front door at 10:01 am and a cleaning Lady coming in back door at same time. Seriously? And dont even think about renting scooters for the week. There is no place to park them if you drove in and are using your 1 small spot up against bushes that scrapped up our truck. The Gate security people were sooo rude about it to. !st walking in (after the door hits you in the face cause it doesnt open all the way) we thought it was cute. But so many issues that it made the stay uncomfortable, expecially for the price. I def would not stay in this rental again. Thank God, the Keys are so amazing that it made it all worth it. Fix doors, bathrooms, add TVS, couch, add fan backyard & This could be adorable!!
This was a lovely property! Small but cozy and with all the amenities we would want. Great porches outside bedrooms. Gas grill on patio was a plus. Steps away from the pool. Much nicer and cheaper than staying in a hotel. Central, convenient location. Would recommend highly.
This was our second time with at home ,we really like the location for the pool and ease of our fun spots but the lack of a bath room down stairs and the smaller bath rooms upstairs wasn't up to par .we had a great time and as allways the personnel for at home was top notch, we really liked a place in Paradice better which we rented last time. The Hemingway beds and baths are suited more for smaller people. other than that we had a great time
“Not worth the money.”
The location of the rental was amazing! Walking distance to everything! The house itself inside was a disaster. Everything was old, the bed were horrible! The springs bounced you right off the bed if you threw yourself down too fast. The pull out couch was horrendous! My friends back was bruised from the bar that pushed threw the 30 year mattress. Oh and we cannot forget the leak from the light fixture right about the dining table. Apparently, if you don't fully pull the curtains all the way around you in the shower upstairs and water leaks out of the tub onto the floor, it will leak downstairs onto the table. In our case onto a laptop that was sitting there. When we called to have it fixed we were told it was a known problem and that we just need to make sure to close the shower curtain all the way. I am sure all the other rentals in the area aretha nicer and better taken care of but for the price we paid this was totally not worth it! As for at Home in Key West... The lady who helped with our reservations was great! But make sure you have your packet handy because of you happen to call ahead and ask any questions they won't answer and say its in the packet! Also, don't bother calling to let them know you won't be making it in time before the office closes to pick up the keys; they will tell you "instructions are in the packet"! All in all, "The Hemingway" is not worth the money at all!!!
Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We will share your comments about the beds with the owner. Thank you for the compliment given to Libby, your reservationist, who is always available to answer any questions from our guests. We make every effort to give guests all the information they need to collect keys from our lockbox if they arrive when the office is closed, and are typically given praise for our efficiency. It sounds like we did not exceed your expectations, would always appreciate the opportunity to make it right.
“Relaxing Oasis in Key West”
The team working for at Home in Key West, Inc was a pleasure to work with. All correspondence was timely, informational & friendly. I could call and speak to someone at any time to ask a question, which I appreciated. The condo was described accurately in the review and was perfect for our four adult guests. The pool was steps away from our back porch, and we enjoyed it daily! The condo was 2 blocks to Duval Street & a short walk to Fort Zachary Taylor Beach, the Ernest Hemingway Home, Truman's Little White House & other great restaurants & bars! If we go back to Key West, we will book with at Home in Key West, Inc again for sure!
“Great location in a beautiful place.”
We had a great stay. House was clean and decorated nicely. The smoke alarm did keep going off in master bedroom every time the power went out, which during our stay was twice in the middle of the night. Alarm was located 10 to 12 feet from the floor and we had no way to stop alarm except use broom and stand on bed to locate button in the dark. We called emergency number, but were told nothing they could do. We hope that is fixed because we loved back porch with all the plants. Some chairs on front porch would be fun also.
“Great trip to Key West”
We were happy to stay at The Hemmingway even though it was a last minute switch. We were disappointed with the limited cable TV and no DVD (we have small children who brought their favorite DVD to play.) Of course, we did not go to KW to watch TV, but it's nice to have something for a 6 and 7 year old to wind down to in the evening. The kitchen appliances need updating, the freezer and refrigerator ran constantly. The smoke alarm upstairs was not connected, and the carpet upstairs was so uncomfortable, it actually hurt to walk on! We loved the location to the community pool, and it had a gas grill which was great to throw burgers and dogs on for lunch. Close to the night life of Duval Street. We love the Truman Annex and would stay there again.
“some good, some not so good”
First, the good things about this property: The location is great--just a couple blocks from all the action, but fairly quiet. There are a convenience store and a fun bar within two blocks. The furniture is good quality (except the outdoor furniture) and comfortable, including the beds. Unit had everything we needed. Flatware looked new. Big closets. Air conditioning and heat worked fine. No bugs at all, not even an ant. Unit is decorated nicely. Having four separate decks was good (although only one had any furniture). The not-so-good things: Several items were in disrepair: the fridge had mold/rust all over the front, many dishes were chipped, dish towels were stained and torn, floor tiles were cracked, TV remote control didn't work, water dripped through dining area light onto table, carpeting was frayed and stained, some bedding and towels had holes, kitchen counter was badly cracked, one of the burners on the stove didn't work, landscaping was in dire need of attention. Rear deck and chairs were filthy. Resin chairs cost $5--why not replace them? Upstairs carpeting is very rough and hurts to walk on with bare feet. There was an old wicker chair in the side yard. Bathrooms are poorly designed. Master bath is so small you can't be in there with the door open. Other bath has a ledge around the tub that fills with water when you shower (then runs onto the floor and drips onto the dining table), unless you place the shower curtain just so. Shower in master bath has no place to put soap or shampoo---we managed to find an old rack in the other bathroom, so we used that. The dryer takes forever to dry your clothes. Plan an hour or more for a regular mixed load. This home really needs to be remodeled, and it could use a deep cleaning that includes scrubbing the floors and decks. Overall, we had a good stay, despite the minor annoyances. I would probably stay in this unit again.
