I am sharing this as with all the great TA'ers as so many of you have been helpful to me. Just a Heads Up...
Having never been to KW before, I have been doing a TON of research and have discovered that there are more than a few VERY small vacation rental units in Key West.
And what really ticks me off is that, even tho I have been specific in my requests and have indicated we need a minimum of 1000 Sq Ft, the small size was not revealed. I finally discovered this on my own.
We would have been extremely upset to have walked in the door and discovered that there is barely enough living space for 2 people, let alone 4, and at over 2K / week (during the time of our proposed visit) !! ( yes there are two bedrooms, but....c'mon....)
For instance, I was told (and I quote from the email sent by the agent):
"The total for "Sunshine Happiness" would come to $2335.50 after tax & cleaning. Would you like to secure those dates? It is about 900sq feet. "
Uhmmmm....WRONG! and This was not the only misleading information I have received from Agents.
I discovered this by checking property information at:
Shipyard complex in the Truman Annex.
Units 1-7 are from 513 to 646 SF.
NOT 900 SF !!!
and when I confronted the Agent with my discovery the reply was:
" My mistake. I was thinking of another unit in the Truman Annex. "
Lesson? GET AN ADDRESS and then research the address; Ask questions. And ya know what? I don't have time for all this.
To the Agents in KW ~ hey, How about some honesty and truthful disclosure ???? My family would LOVE to stay in Key West this year, but I'm getting a little tired this...
