“Great location in Key West!”
Reviewed 25 June 2009 for a stay in September 2008

This place was awesome! Dog friendly with cool tile floors for my dog to lie on. It was so close to everything fun in Key West. Great efficiency with lots of kitchen gadgets for cooking. Would highly recommend this unit.

Reviewed 25 June 2009 for a stay in May 2009

First of all I was very please with the Monroe Efficiency, it was very clean, quiet and peaceful. I would recommend it highly. The only thing I was fearful about was the parking, but to my suprise when I headed in for the evening I was always able to get a parking spot and direcly in from of the efficiency. My hats off to the wonderful staff at Key West Vacation Rentals they were friendly, professional and wonderful people. I would do this agian. Sincerely, Yvonne Lewis, happy renter.

“Loves Key West”
Reviewed 25 June 2009 for a stay in August 2008

The Monroe Efficiency was a cute little place, we would come and stay there again. We only had one problem we were kind of unhappy about and that was the door. The door needs to be fixed or replaced.
You could see light coming through on all sides so we are sure anyone could of broken into the room very easy if they wanted too.
Other then that the room was clean we liked having a little kitchen to do a little cooking in and they were great for our first time in Key West.

“The best place to stay on the island!”

Year after year we vacation in Key West and year after year we chose this location. We've stayed in various rooms at this location and every one has been excellent. The location of this place is right where you need to be - in walking distance of Duval, great restaurants, scooter rentals, the beach but at the same time it's very serene and quiet. If you prefer to be in the middle of the noisy action, you might consider staying on Duval street.

The room itself is well appointed and has all the necessary things for a great stay: full size fridge, microwave, shower, TV, great pools, and a lovely patio. It's very clean.

The staff can really be finicky. One year we went and they were awfully rude because we were sitting out in the front of the place on the street waiting for our room keeper to finish cleaning up from the previous person. We had no where else to go as we had just drove in with our truck loaded up. The sitting out wasn't the problem but the maid felt pressured and she complained. Every other time they have been wonderful and more than happy to accommodate whatever you need. Very helpful and friendly every other time.

But the best thing about this place is they take dogs. Big dogs, little dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs. I need a place that will take my dog and understands that it may bark and it may act up (as it did on this trip when my dog tried to eat through the door of the room!) and this place is it. Of course that means that other rooms might have dogs too - if you're not a dog person you need not stay here. Every time I've been there were multiple dogs enjoying their vacation here and none caused any trouble and were very quiet.

Bottom line is this: If you want to go and enjoy a nice time in a home-like atmosphere instead of a hotel room you need to be here. I'll never stay anywhere else.

“OK place!”
Reviewed 25 June 2009 for a stay in January 2007

This is a good spot for a small family or a couple to stay in Key West. It's quiet, off the main drag, has nice patio areas shaded by palms, has every facility you need inside, such as a small but complete enough kitchen, microwave, good bathroom, etc. There is no place to eat, however, unless you step outside onto the deck. The bathroom in the unit I rented had only a stand-up shower with no tub, which could be problematic for some people, but was fine with me.

There is a pool available to the units, which is around the corner. It was a nicely furnished pool area, very clean, and I was alone every time I visited it. It was very relaxing.

My unit was air-conditioned, so sleeping in that humid temp. was no problem. Even in January it can be quite uncomfortable outside when you're in the sun sometimes.

Everything was very clean and there were no bug infestations, which I had sort of expected ... the weather is so humid and warm. It must be tough to keep bugs out!

The units are within easy walking distance of all the Key West attractions such as the harbour, Dugal Street, the bars and restaurants. It is even within walking distance of a public beach.

I prefer to heat up most meals from pre-made purchased casseroles, rather than eat out most of the time (the cost!!!!), and grocery stores were also within walking distance. I could make coffee, toast, and anything else I wanted for breakfast, and could keep cold meat, cheese, salad makings etc. in the fridge for easy and cheap fast lunches.

All in all, the cost of the unit I rented for two weeks was well worth it. It is not fancy, and is not meant to be. But it was completely clean and serviceable. I had a family emergency at home, and was on a day trip away that day. The staff were good enough to come by and leave a note on my door. They were polite, helpful, and nice people.

I loved the wild chickens walking all over Key West! You can hear them cackling to each other all over town!
