“Classic Home Needs ALot Of TLC”
Reviewed July 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

We came to Key West for a large family gathering. Each family was to cook a dinner meal each night and we were to celebrate birthdays. Very excited to be in old town key west. First night 2 of the 5 bathrooms we discovered leaked out onto floor. Upstairs rooms were hot. 2nd night we discovered the stove/oven was broken. And it was so dirty it smoked up the kitchen. Maintenance was called, oven could not be fixed right away because parts had to be ordered. Housekeeping was called to clean oven, they said it was too bad to really get it cleaned. Ugh! Then we tried the grill... It too was dIrty and would not light without a lighter... Sheesh... Oh and the ants... Small Ants in the kitchen, large ants in the cottage. We wiped everything down with wipes and went out to buy ziplock bags to stop the ants. I stopped counting the ants after awhile. 4th night the internet went out; however, they came in and fixed that pretty quickly. My biggest complaint is and will be is the condition of everything. The PICTURES misrepresent this classic home. The furniture is the same in the pictures but it is worn out. You sit in it and sink to the mattresses in the couch Yuck! The bedroom pillows are gross for the most part. There is too much to list. The overall charm of the house is lost when you look around and see that the owner just did not take care of this home. Very sad. :( oh and the house to the right is a gay resort which we could have care less about until the music got loud and then we figured out why the shades were all closed in the house. There was a nude gay party going on next door. Multiple nights! Lol... On the positive note... The location was Great. The pool is small but good. The laundry facility is outside on the deck but usable. Page from the management team tried to help us and sent wine and cupcakes but by then I was truly disappointed and embarrassed by this home and apologized to my family multiple times. We made the best of it but...Not worth the money unfortunately. I hope the new owners will fix up this home to its true potential. Right now it cries for TLC. PS... To the new owners...the second story front porch beams breaking away from the posts. Be very careful until they are fixed.

We are really sorry this guest was disappointed in this property. Unfortunately a couple of issues came up during their stay and we did our best to address them as soon as we could. In August the new owner will be refreshing the property and the bigger issues, like the bathroom leaks and porch, will be addressed then.

The house was in great condition when we arrived. As described. Had everything we needed and more. Perfect for our group of 12. The location is ideal.

“Renter Beware”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

people found this review helpful

Rented this home with a 4 other couples.. Don't believe what you see on the House Hunter's television episode. First the good points..nice front porch, nice pool and deck in back, however, there is not enough outdoor furniture to accommodate a large group which would be the size that would normally rent this home. There was no outdoor furniture for the upper porch either in front or back. The furnishings needed updating (not the furniture you see in the House Hunters episode) the dishes were cracked and chipped, and don't put the coffee cups in the microwave..not microwave safe and get HOT! Coffee maker does not work properly....grounds in coffee every morning. Bathrooms need to be cleaned up and updated!! Bedding was ok but not up to par for a rental of this price. Downstairs bedroom mattress was old. Several people had ants in their rooms and one reported hearing mice scurrying in the night! YICKS! Located next to a clothing optional mens club that had a pool and hot tub viewable from the kitchen and back deck. They had cocktail parties in the evening and most decided to opt for no clothing. Just saying...it might not be for everyone especially families! Several inappropriate (mens anatomy) kitchen utensils were found among the kitchen items in the drawers. It is a historic home with lots of room but needs TLC badly!!! Not what I expected for a rental of this caliber.

Classic Key West Estate is a popular rental property. In general these properties are refreshed after the busy winter season. However, in our Welcome packet we provide a contact number for maintenance if any problems arise during our customers’ stay. If the maintenance line had been contacted, they would have been able to address most of the issues pointed out in the comment above.
Our housekeeping staff is available to provide maid service upon request but this service needs to be requested by our guests.
The property was updated spring/summer 2013 - new outdoor furniture was purchased, new bedding, linens, rugs, etc.
The vacation rental properties we represent are owned by private individuals and the furnishings reflect their style and taste.
We are very sorry for the disappointment of this guest who stayed at the property in March 2013.

“Perfect house for a wedding”
Reviewed November 6, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

people found this review helpful

We recently returned from a week in between fantasy fest and boat races. We planned a wedding sight unseen at this house for 12 guests. We had 4 additional guests from the area for the actual wedding day. Accommodations were more than we had anticipated. All King beds except the pool house. The pool is smaller than it seems in pics and all shaded but was great for us as we used it at night heated and went to Dante's pool in the daytime. Only rooms with television are the master quarters, library, and media room so we had some pouty lips there. Lighting in bathrooms for makeup is needed so bring a light up mirror if possible. Other than that, the place is beautiful, beds are very comfortable, memory foam in master. We had Small Chef at Large cater with two eight top tables by the pool (after moving some furniture out of the area), with plenty of room. Everything you can imagine to entertain with is already there including, table clothes, tons of wine glasses, big pots and pans, tons and tons of plates, silver...., two coffee pots, toaster oven, microwave, ice maker, tons of blankets.... Also a cupboard full of spices. Love this place and will have many great memories. This location on Fleming is not the ritz but in no way is it unsafe. Close to everything. We all rented bikes and covered alot of area as it was most of our guests first time there.

house is spacious with large rooms. pool is small but enough to get wet. i was attacked out front on the street by a strange man and police were called. do not walk this street alone. house keeping walk in on you without knocking which made me uncomfortable too. also exchange the 3 keys face to face and get a signed receipt.

Thank you for your comments!
Check out time is 11 am and the housekeepers were there a little after 11 am. Whenever possible we let guests check out later, but that day it was not and housekeepers needed to go in and turn the house over and get it ready for the guests coming at 4pm. They could not find one of the keys at first, but eventually they found it, so there was not charge for missing keys.
Sorry to hear about your experience out on the street! The area is pretty safe...We haven't had any problems in the past...But it can happen anywhere...
Regards,
VHKW
