Cozy and Clean, perfect for two

This bungalow was just perfect for the two of us. We really enjoyed the tropical setting and the nearly private jacuzzi. Walking distance to the beach. The room was clean and enjoyed having the refrigerator, microwave and TV's in the living room and bedroom. True, you do have to drive to get to Duval and the tourist areas, but that wasn't too bad. Paid between 5 and 10 per day for parking there. Better than a motel room definitely. Thanks.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Eating out can be expensive. There are several major grocery stores nearby so we did a couple of meals at the room and saved quite a bit.

Cute, clean, and cozy.

The beach bungalow was just big enough for 2 people to stay comfortably with each other. It was clean and had just enough space to get ready for activities on the island in the morning, and a great place to relax upon returning. The location was good; the closest beach was a little smelly but there are plenty more beaches to choose from, and the owner of the bungalow recommended a bike rental place that made the trips to the other beaches, and everywhere else, much more enjoyable. The owner of the bungalow was very friendly and accommodating. The deck was a wonderful place to sit in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee, and also a great place to grill lunch and dinner. The washer and dryer in the back of the house also came in handy, and the kitchenette was stocked with plenty of clean dishes. Overall we had a wonderful experience staying at this bungalow and would definitely stay there again :)

Good location

The Beach Villas was a great place to stay if you want a peaceful, quiet place to stay. It is away from the "tourist" area and in a quiet neighborhood. The bungalow was very clean and had all the amenities needed for an extended stay. The french doors open onto a large covered porch that can be used for entertaining. I would definitely stay here again when I am in Key West. Good value for the money.

Fool me once....etc, etc

The management, staff, etc has no concept of customer service. I was instructed to pick up the key at some sidewalk vendor booth. When I arrived, no one was there. The employee decided to leave early...totally disregarding the fact that a customer was arriving to pick up a key. The facility itself was nice, but the fiasco over the key was a total turnoff. I go to Key West every year but will NEVER stay there again.

Beach Villa with No Beach

Very cute and comfey except that the bedroom is upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs. Tough for those with middle-of-the-night needs. Not appropriate for those with mobility issues due to multiple sets of stairs. Beach is down the street, walking distance if you're a walker, but not in sight. You can hear people in the next unit very clearly which gives the impression of no privacy. Might be OK for younger singles or couples, but I wouldn't recommend it to older travelers.

GREAT STAY

Staff was excellant but information from Orbitz for key pickup and location was not good. Love the quiete location. Was close to beach. Some spots on the beach had seaweed but it is the ocean. Look for the light green areas ( no sea weed) People of the area were terrific. Must do the bus tour, the sooner the better. You learn the island, loacations, etc. We did stay in the larger bungalow with the king size bed. Lots of room. Bedroom was the whole upstairs. Kitchen equipped with microwave, fridge, dishes and cookware, toaster oven. no stove.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

We rented a compact car and was offered and upgrade to a convertable for $20 a day extra.(budget) Total of $52 a day. There are park and rides but a nice parking lot on 411 carloline (1/2 block off of Duval st) for $10 a day. Highway 1 going North has mall for groceries and goodies.

HORRIBLE

We booked this place because of the location to the beach and the fact that we could save some money and cook at the beach house which was equipped with a "kitchen"-which apparently means a sink,refrigerator and a microwave. The house is tiny...i mean VERY tiny...there is no closet space to put clothes away,the jacuzzi looked liked it hadnt been cleaned in months and it didnt work! when we asked the owner about it he looked suprised...When asked about status of repair the following day he said that the motor was burnt out. Now lets talk about the beach...Smathers Beach smells like rotting vegetation(acknowledged by ALL the locals and the ongoing Gov't clean up)you cant stand the smell much less trying to go in the water! So we had to rent a car..spend TONS of money on food b/c all there was to cook on was a very tiny grill...also the Ad says there is a washer and dryer...well if there was i didnt know about it. Also note Key West is an island,so when add states that there is parking for tenants it does not guarantee you will find a spot ANYWHERE CLOSE TO YOUR VILLA. [...]...unfortunatly we will not go back to this place...Stay at the Hyatt

Quiet weekend

Quiet and very comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Jacuzzi was not working thru no fault of the owner. Smathers Beach was in walking distance but water was full of seaweed. We combined using our car and taxi for trips to Duval Street and restaurants. Cost of taxi about $10/trip including tip. Room had a book full of info about the island. Discounts available for water events thru the hotel booking.
