“Excellent Stay”

We stayed at 518 Catherine the week after Christmas through New Years and everything could not have been better. From the initial contact with Laura at Rent Key West to our departure the entire experience was first-class and made for an excellent stay. The location to Duval is ideal especially since it is the quiet end of the street. The plunge pull was great for our toddler daughter and having a washer and dryer was nice. We enjoyed the Butterfly Nature Conservatory was excellent as was the Key West aquarium. Overall, 518 Catherine is a great place to stay for a small family or two couples. Ask for Laura or Steve when booking. They are great.

“Just what I expected for a Key West style house.”
Reviewed 28 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

Catherine house was very nice. Location could not be more convenient. The house was clean and comfortable and was well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The back sitting area was very nice with beautiful vegetation. The only thing that was disapointing was that the swim spa was not very warm even though we payed a substantial fee for heat. We would gladly rent this house again!

“Nice Place”
Reviewed 25 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

We spent five nights here and enjoyed it very much. For such an old home, it was in very good condition. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. The house is located one block off the south end of Duval St. This is the quiet end of Duval St. So if you plan on late nights closer to the north end, I would find a place further north. It's a long walk when you have no transportation.

A couple of notes. We started cooking on the grill our first night and discovered that we could not turn the back patio light on and ended up cooking in the dark as the sun went down. Plan accordingly or move the grill before you get started. The pool also has a slow leak so we had to add water a couple of times.

All in all we had a great time in Key West and the Catherine House met our expectations. It was priced in line with other places we looked at and I would have no problem staying there again.

Duval Street is 1.25 miles long running from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean with the Catherine House just over a mile from the northern end of Duval. After a night on the town, alternative forms of transportation, such as bicycles, pedicabs, or taxicabs can expedite this travel home if you aren't in the mood for walking. (Did you know you can get a DUI on a bicycle? True!) There is a motion sensor/photocell light over the barbeque that's hard to reach to test, so this light bulb was changed and the problem solved. This guest was utilizing the optional pool heat and with a small pool like the Catherine House has, the evaporation rate is high requiring more water to be added to the pool every few days. The pool company is monitoring for a leak, but so far it appears to be just from evaporation. We are certainly glad that the guest's expectations were met and we hope to have them back as guests very soon.

The property has recently sold and the new owners are starting to make their mark on the property. New ductless split air conditioning units (11/11) have been installed in the living area and the back bedroom. The painters are due in before season as well, so there are more improvements to come!

“Charming & comfortable”
Reviewed 11 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming conch-style cottage. Though the pool was very small, it allowed us to cool off! Terrific location just off Duval St but at the "quieter" end. We had a car, for which we easily found parking around the block, but just parked it and rode bikes everywhere. A car is definitely not needed. Service by the KWRents management company, especially Steve & Joyce, was top notch. can't wait to return!
