“Key West sanctuary”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I will just cut to the chase; I have already booked the sanctuary for November 2014. I have stayed at other nice places in KW but I love the privacy of the village, the house with private pool and upper deck, and the yard shared only with the wildlife. If you do not care for green iguanas, small aggressive lizards, roosters crowing at all hours, birds, tropical trees and flowers, and locals in the village than this may not be the place for you. This is becoming one of the last areas that has not lost the charm of a Key West lost. I did not want for anything. Easy check-in/out, Tim and Wade were very accomodating, and location, location, location. My home away from home.

Liked best: House, pool, privacy, and location.
Liked least: Management accepts packages which I appreciate but I would like to be able to return packages through the office even if a fee was charged for the convenience; but no big deal.

“A Slice of Heaven!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My husband and I decided to rent this vacation rental for 7 days, and it was worth every penny! We have been to Key West a few times before, but this was by far the best stay. The heart of the house is the backyard oasis which IS as amazing as the pictures show. We spent countless hours lounging in the shade on the deck, swimming in the gorgeous (pristine!) pool or lounging in the one person hammock chair. We travel all over from Europe to the Caribbean but this was by-far one of the most relaxing trips we've ever done. Not to mention, we parked our car on day 1 and didn't start it up again until 7 days later. We walked a few steps out the front door and you're literally on Duval Street!! Simply amazing. We will definitely be returning to vacation rentals with Historic Hideaways and the Poinciana House again!

“When are we going back.”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The house was very comfortable. Grandson loved the pool. Enjoyed the daily visit of the iguana in the tree. We really liked the location, it was quiet and enjoyable. We hope to make this trip again!

“Puts you in a Key West state of mind”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

There were 3 of us and while just a tad small, the house was perfect. We are still missing coffee by the pool, walking less than a block to Duval Street, and enjoying all the wonderful restaurants. We can still hear the roosters crowing! The house was private, comfortable, and a cool respite from the heat. We loved it!

“Super convenient!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We loved our week stay at the poinciana house! First of all the company was very easy to rent from. Very quick to get back with me when I had any questions. We had no issues with the house at all. The pictures reflected the house perfectly! We absolutely loved the pool and the roof top deck. On top of everything it was super convenient and walking distance to everything! We will definitely be back!

“Hideaway heaven!”
Reviewed February 20, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

person found this review helpful

This was our second visit to Key West in 2 years and we could not have asked for a better stay! The weather (albeit seasonal) was alittle chilly. Tim @ Historic Hideaways made our rental experience carefree and the Poinciana House was exactly as advertised - the pool was unbelieveably serene, well-maintained and the perfect temperature. More bath towels than the 2 of us needed and plenty of beach towels if only the weather had cooperated. The location was perfect and central to all of our favorites - Blue Heaven, Ft Zachary Beach, and convenience stores were all within a block or two. Would not hesitate to consider Historic Hideaways for a future stay - hopefully soon!
