“great space - but house needs serious updating and TLC”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

people found this review helpful

Stayed here with a large family group recently. The house is very spacious and comfortably fit our group of 20 although the sharing of bathrooms gets a bit old by the end of a week. Kitchen is dated but well-equipped. Plenty of kayaks, SUPs, bikes, fishing gear, tennis gear, racquetball equipment all at your disposal and also awesome to have a dock where you can keep a boat (which we rented).

The property manager Aric was super nice and readily available with any questions.

What we did not like (and this was certainly the consensus of all in our group) is that the house is very tired at this point and it seems long overdue for some updating. Just lots of little things like worn, stained carpets; old not so comfy mattresses and bedding (I bought pillows at the local Kmart for $5.99 that were an upgrade from what was provided); tiles falling out and missing from the pool; deck area very worn and especially the second floor outside deck had a bunch of flimsy broken lounge chairs; house clean but yet look in corners and it's not really clean (plus some mold around); broken window shades... etc, etc.

With some TLC we all thought this could be a great place, but it was not nearly as nice as the photos and that was disappointing to all in our group.

I am sad when a Guest expresses some concerns over their stay. The group of people (caretaker, maids, cleaners and myself) that take care of the property take great effort to make everyone's' stay special. It is difficult to make a house that has 20 different visitors every week, almost year round, perfect. I plan maintainence days several days a month and in the slower fall season, we spend about 30 days a year doing extensive repairs, maintenance, and remodeling. It is mid July and our fall work begins soon. With that said, we could not find the broken plastic chairs spoken about, only one stained carpet in an 8100 square foot house. The house is cleaned every turnover day by 5 different people who check each others work. In the summer, with 15 hour 90 plus degree days, thunderstorms every afternoon, and huge air conditioning units operating at full blast, mold can come easily in a day or two after the turnover. Nevertheless, this review was discussed with all cleaners, maids, and the caretaker to make sure all are more carefull. It is interesting to note that the people staying this week have already reserved another week in the Spring. (hmmm)

Staying here was probably one of the best decisions we have made for our Trip to Key West. All the other decisions, like drinking way too much, staying up too late, partying crazy, not so good decisions!!! Very spacious, four full bathrooms plus and eight bedrooms, a great sitting area, huge ocean view porches, docks, awesome dining area and a large kitchen. Located in Key West, with amazing views of the ocean and the Gulf! Caretaker really catered to our needs. There was a taxi ready whenever you needed one. . Awesome heated pool and hot tubs, bikes, paddle boards, tennis court, racket ball court, basketball hoop, pool table, ping pong table and the list goes on...would definitely stay here again.

“Great house, questionable owner”
Reviewed 12 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

This post should be prefaced with a few facts. The house is great, the amenities are endless. We did not run out of things to do and we were pleased with the abundance of activities available to us. The location was also great for a large group trying to enjoy key west because it was in close proximity.

The problems we ran into are as follows: the house owner Andrew seems to be under the impression that he is running a 10 million Dollar estate in Saint Barths. He's a good businessman as he knows how to suck every possible dollar out of his customers. He is after all a Wharton grad (despite the fact that his contract had numerous typos, whoops). He does not leave you alone. He will do anything possible to linger on the property and interfere with your trip. He made many guests feel uncomfortable despite our effort to be friendly and accommodating of his presence. Anyone planning on staying at this house should be wary of his extreme inclination to hang around his house, which he views as his precious child. As aforementioned, he treats this house like it is something which it is not. At the end of the day, you should get what you're paying for. In this case, we were ripped off for a trashy/slightly dirty, washed up old MTV property.

Eleanorj93 who presented herself and friends as a group of law school grads, her quote "young professionals" , misrepresented her group and its size, as well. I actually live in Hawaii in another TripAdvisor Property 3953658 , and only visit the property once a month for 2 days to inspect and make sure the staff is keeping up to my high expectation and standards. When I asked her for a list of visitors before she arrived, she refused to comply, stating privacy concerns. I knew this was a harbinger. Try staying in a one star in Thailand without Identifying yourself and your guests and see what happens. The lease states 18 people and she claimed they were all young professionals. It turns out most of the group of 30 plus people (way more than is permitted) were even underage to drink, and a few even tried to have a local drug dealer deliver to the house. I recognized him from being a former Public Defender in Key West and told him to leave immediately. I take pride in the property and respect my neighbors, when I suspected the potential problem, I flew 5000 miles to babysit the spoiled undergrads. Lots of fancy cars, but no respect for cleanliness, rules, etc. When referring to seeing me too much, I actually had to walk around the property every few hours and clean up trash, half eaten pizzas, empty beer and pizza boxes, and hundreds of half empty beer containers, or they would have drown in their filth. I paid the staff overtime to clean and repair the property after their departure to make it perfect again. Eleanorj93 and friends created the "trashy/..... dirty" mess she refers to. So if you are what Eleanor's group was, please read her review and do not come. Shame on you Eleanorj93 !!!!

I had the privilege to take 16 of my best friends and my family here for my retirement party. Everyone had a blast we hired Provisions of Key West to cook for a few days and provision the house for us. It must have been fun the 3 hour ride back was very quiet and they are still talking about it on Facebook. I spoke with the owner on numerous occasions prior to our arrival with all kinds of questions and he answered all of them quickly and didn't seem to get annoyed by me thanks for a great experience

“Perfect Fantasy Fest 50th Birthday Party House”
Reviewed 9 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

We had a large group to celebrate my 50th birthday and this house was the perfect place. Aric, the on on-site manager, was fantastic and so accommodating. The owner, Andrew, was great about answering all of our pre-trip questions. The house was clean upon our arrival and check-in was a breeze. The house has several decks for relaxing and cabanas around the pool for privacy and shade. We fished right off the dock and used the SUP and kayaks to enjoy the water. The pool was very clean and enjoyable. We rented the entire house and the Raquetball House, totaling 10 bedrooms. We used Oly, the best taxi driver in town, to coordinate our transportation into town each day. We were there for Fantasy Fest and it was a fantasy house.
