The poolside cottage was great. A nice change from the larger properties we usually stay in on our yearly trip. Location is centrally located to attraction we like and the private cottages offered privacy from neighbors that hotels, Condos and B & B's do not. Only complaint noisy window A/C's.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Colony Poolside in Key West for 6 nights and it was like a home away from home. From the time we were greeted by the friendly and professional staff at check in, we were very pleased with our decision to stay here.The location is great, just a few blocks from Duval street and convenient walking distance to groceries, shops and restaurants, but far enough from the bustle to be a quiet retreat. The bungalow itself was clean, bright and well appointed. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Not a day went by when we did not enjoy a dip in the pool just outside our bungalow. The only criticism is about the limited parking; there are not enough spaces available for the number of units so we had to look for street parking during part of the time we were there. Other than that we had no issues and we would definitely recommend this space and stay here again if we return to Key West.

We came to Key West for a few days with our 3 year old and 8 month old, and felt totally comfortable and at home at Colony Poolside. The cottage had everything we needed and was a cozy spot to come home to after a long day having fun in the sun. Particularly great was that we could put the kids to bed and then sit out on the deck within easy earshot of them.

Everything about this rental was terrific. Its location was perfect; in a quiet charming neighborhood that was a five minute walk to Duval Street and Hemmingway House. Property was spotless and well decorated with a comfortable bed. The cottage felt very private and secluded even though there are other cottages in the courtyard. Poolside view was a bonus. I would definitely return to this property!

I travel to KW often but this was my first experience with Rent KW Vacations. Check in was quick and easy with early check-in and easy check-out with being able to leave the keys at the cottage which I appreciate. The cottage had everything I wanted including a TV in the BR/LR and a CD player; comfortable king bed and AC in BR/LR. I rent a bike when I travel to KW and the cottage was convenient to all destinations; Island Grocery is a block away for stocking immediate needs and Faustos not far for speciality items. I had a great time and hope to stay with Rent KW again in the future.

I have been coming to Key West for the last 8 years. I would definitely recommend this place because of many factors and would stay there again. Rent Key West is super and accommodating. The place was comfortable and well decorated. The location is in a quiet location but very close to the center of the action on Duval Street and not far from the historic seaport (I bike everywhere). The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well equipped and I enjoyed the barbecue grill. The only negative was the on site laundry facilities were inoperable during my stay but I drove to a laundromat. One other thing to note the owner of this unit appears to be involved to make sure everything is nice and operable. I stayed for six nights and we loved it all in all it is a cute cottage in a super location with a shared pool.

Rent Key West Vacations was the best!

Colony Poolside was exactly like we expected from the pictures online. The rental was very clean and fully equipped, we would stay here again for sure.

This was our 2nd stay at The Colony. We love the fact that our friends can rent cottages at the same time for a group feel, but we still have private spaces. It's a great location with a very secluded feel. There were a few areas for improvement this year, but overall another great Key West stay.

Colony Poolside is a nice little cottage at the Colony cottages. It is a problem that more than one mgt company rents the cottages there. Because of that, no one takes responsibility for things like cleaning the laundry room or making sure the machines work. Both of those things are problems here. Also, the parking lot for seven cottages is big enough for four vehicles. Unfortunately, it is common for more than 4 to park here and block others in. Our unit, Colony Poolside, was nice inside and came as advertised. It could use some updating as there were few cooking utensils in the unit that were useful, e.g., knives and pots and pans. Also, there is no dishwasher so you pretty much have to wash everything before you use it. The outside decks are in need of some TLC as they look like they haven't been painted in a while. Having said all that, it's a nice place. The price, for Key West in season, was reasonable and it was nice having your own stand alone place so close to Duval Street. The scooter we rented was always able to get out of the parking lot and we didn't get to use the apparently new gas grill on our deck. Biggest problems: parking and laundry facilities. Upside: Nice place all to yourself and close to Duval Street.

This was our 12th visit to Key West. We enjoy the laidback lifestyle, the people we meet, walking and exploring hidden treasures all over the island, and eating our way through new and old favorite restaurants. Colony Poolside was the perfect home base for our visit. Quiet, comfortable, clean and centrally located, the cottage looks exactly like the photos. Everything was well-maintained - the only negative was that we never found the iron even though there was an ironing board. It got cool (50's) during our stay and there were plenty of extra blankets and a space heater. We aren't "pool people" so the limited space for laying out in the sun didn't bother us. We never have a car in Key West and walk an average of about seven miles each day. We took long walks to Smathers Beach, Ft. Zachary Taylor, and even rode bikes to Stock Island for lunch at Hogfish. Key West has a thriving high-quality independent restaurant scene, but visitors will need to venture off Duval St. to find it. Highly recommended: The Flaming Buoy, Nine One Five, La Creperie, Off the Hook, Santiago's Bodega, Seven Fish, Onlywood, Azur, Garbo's. For great wine, conversation and recommendations, visit Mark at Uva Wine Shoppe on Fleming. If you really need to relax, book a massage at Ocean Wellness Spa. And if you're into the blues, check out Barry Cuda's schedule around the island. We will definitely return to the cozy, peaceful and convenient Colony Poolside.

This is the third time we stayed at this rental. Overall, it is very nice. It is very well located, the furniture, etc. of the rental is lovely and comfortable. The pool area of this condo needs better maintenance. It's starting to look seedy and the rental unit could use better and more comfortable outdoor seating.

This is the fifth year we have rented through Rent Key West. First time at Colony poolside. We always love our stay, and the service we get from Rent Key West. This trip was no exception. Colony poolside was perfect for our 9-day stay. Giving us a lot of elbow room and the big pool was a treat by Key West standards. May I suggest an upgrade to quieter Air Conditioners? We found them too noisy for sleeping, but not enough to change my 5 star rating! Fortunately it wasn't too hot and the ceiling fans did the job.

We enjoyed the property a lot. It was well equipped, comfortable and very nice. The only suggestion we would offer is to install a full length mirror in the bedroom or the bathroom as that would make it a lot easier to get dressed, especially when trying to wear the "perfect" costume.

Colony Poolside was just like it shows in the pics, very nicely decorated and equipped, easy bike ride to Duval.....only issue we had was the parking is minimal and very tight. We parked in one of the designated parking spaces for the property - we were blocked in by another car illegally parked (not in a parking space) on Tuesday of our week. We repeatedly asked the rental company to get the car moved/towed, whatever so that we could get our car out and they basically did nothing. Very stressful as we had an early morning leaving time on Sunday morning. We were still blocked in on Saturday afternoon, finally got our car out only when other guests moved their cars during the changeover on Saturday, no help from owners. Also, the apartment had a perpetually mildew smell but not overwhelming once you were inside. If quiet or sleeping in matters you might want to ask if they are doing construction there on the property. We awoke to construction on the unit next to us for three mornings, but it didn't start till 8 or 8:30, not a big deal as we don't normally sleep in.

We returned to this cottage after many years and visits to Key West. It was as lovely as we remembered. The well-stocked kitchen, living décor and bedroom comfort allowed us all of the amenities to truly enjoy every minute of our stay. The location is convenient, yet provides a peaceful escape for true relaxation. The ONLY complaint is that more towels would have been nice. I don't like to have to pay to launder towels while I am vacationing.

Property was exactly as stated. Clean, every amenity needed, all in working order. Great A/C. Pool was wonderful.Quiet location yet short bike ride away to everything. Could not have asked for a better place! We enjoyed snorkeling, dinner cruise, toured Fort Zachary Taylor, went to the beach, did a bike tour of the island with Floyd at The Moped Hospital, rode bikes all over the island. Recommend the Green Parrot, Mangia Mangia Italian, and Schooners Wharf.

My husband and I recently enjoyed a wonderful week long stay at this condo in Key West! We certainly made the right choice when selecting Colony Poolside for our vacation. This condo is slightly larger in person than it appears in the photos, and offered the perfect set up for two people.
Upon arrival, I was impressed by the cleanliness of the condo, as well as the little nautical touches throughout the space. The owners have really done a great job with the details and we loved admiring the charm of the decor.
As others have noted, Colony Poolside is ideally located. The street itself is rather quiet, but it's only a short walk to Duval Street. We opted to fly into Miami and enjoy the drive down, however, we didn't use the car once after arriving. Many of our neighbors opted to rent bikes, but we truly enjoyed just walking around town- for coffee, breakfast, dinner, shopping, or just to take in the views.
The condo offered just the right amount of amenities for your convenience. We found that we had plenty of fresh, clean towels for bath & pool, as well as linens. There was a hair dryer under the sink and hand soap on the sinks. Plates and glasses were plentiful.
When we weren't strolling about town, we did take some time to enjoy the pool. It was a comfortable temp and there are a decent amount of chairs around. A bit small but we didn’t need much.
The only drawback to this rental seems to be the parking. Due to the limited amount of parking space, there is a good chance you may have to find on street parking. This was the case when we first arrived, but we were able to find an on street spot just one street over.
I should also note that dealing with the rental company was a great experience. They were attentive and friendly. The concierge service was great with follow up and staff was so easy to work with. Overall, a wonderful trip that we hope to repeat again soon!

Perfect!

Our stay at the Colony Poolside was just perfect! The location was perfect and within walking distance to everything. The rental was absolutely beautiful, comfortable, and everything just like in the photos. The staff at Rent Key West was helpful, professional, and very friendly. I would definitely recommend to stay here and will most definitely come back! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Just a few minutes walk from duval, a perfect balance of having all the bars etc nearby, but peaceful enough when sitting out by the pool that you're not disturbed by noise. Poolside itself was great, impressed with the facilities in the rental, and all clean and comfortable. Only thing missing is a steel to sharpen the knives...!

We had an amazing time! The Colony is in a great location in Old Town. It is within walking distance to everything, but is very private and secluded. The pool area and grounds are clean and well-maintained, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property.

Had a wonderful time at the Colony Poolside! Clean, and well kept. Short walk to Duval St. Only one small issue while we were there, the Wi-Fi didn't work at all and then the cable somehow got shut off. Not that we watched that much tv anyway. I would recommend this to all my friends. We will be back!

We were most pleased with our stay at Colony Poolside. The location could not have been better--within walking or biking distance of everything we wanted to do and see and every restaurant on our list. Less than two blocks off Duval St., the cottage and immediate neighborhood were surprisingly quiet. The cottage itself is beautiful, with a well-equipped kitchen. So, when we visit again, I'm sure we will want to stay at Colony Poolside. (I have already recommended it to friends!)

Quaint and cute!

We absolutely loved this cottage! The decor was tasteful yet comfortable and relaxing. It was clean, neat and organized. Directions were available for how to use items as well as where certain things were stored. My only gripe was that there weren't enough hangers but I survived :). And the location was awesome - close enough to ride a bike to everything you wanted to do but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. It was the best vacation ever!!

Really nice pretty and clean place. Just wish they'd have reserved parking in the lot they own in the complex. The first nite we had t opark on the street and risk getting a ticket since its all residential parking around the place. We got up at 7 am to move our rental car. And then the next dat someone decided to park a boat next to our car in a non spot so I couldnt even get in my side of the car. Overall the place was super nice, just wish they would control their parking spaces like other places in the area do with a tag.

We had read online comments about the musty odor when you first arrived and that was still true for our stay. The property though was spotless and absolutely adorable! After airing out, it was fine. The doors stuck and the shower rod curtain needed to be replaced (it kept falling when you'd pull the shower curtain to close). But the property was really nice. We'd stay again.

We stayed 1 week and really enjoyed our vacation!The property was exactly as pictured, very clean, convenient location. We never got to use the pool, but we saw others use it, and it was cleaned regularly as well as were the area around the cottages. The office staff were very nice and helpful. The only thing I would caution is the parking. As stated in the property description, there are some spots available, however only 5 spots for what appears to be 7 properties. We only got a spot 1 day I think. We did get 2 parking tickets along the street which totaled $90 :( Just be aware of where you park. Overall the stay was FABULOUS and I would do it all over again :))

Generally, when I rent a lodging for a day or week or month, housekeeping is included in the fee. Nowhere in your conversations or the literature online did you state I would be responsible for washing my own towels and linens. Nor did it say that I would need to secure the key for the room from across the island in order to get into my room. I had some problem with a disappearing wifi connection but got no satisfaction nor remedy from the rental agency.
I did enjoy my stay at the Colony celebrating my 36th anniversary..and would return to KW only if I could stay in the Colony. Now I know what to expect for parking arrangements and with those things mentioned above.. Many fond memories of our Colony visits..

We loved Key West and want to go back - immediately. Looking at alternate choices for housing I can't find any more perfect than Colony Poolside. It is three blocks off the quite end of Duval where the best restaurants are located. The cottage is bright, clean and decorated just like you would do it, assuming you were a professional decorator. Do not miss The Banana Cafe, Havana and 915 on Duval, make sure you go to Hemmingway House and the Butterfly Conservatory. All comfortable walking distance.

The cottage does have a musty smell when you first get there. Not sure if this is from keeping a/c too low between rentals or possibly a cedar oder from a beautiful old cabinet that holds TV and other equipment. Turn up a/c, it will be gone in a day.

Only real blip was check-in. We got there on a Sunday. Our taxi brought us to their office between 2pm and 2:20 and there was no key in lock-box as promised, no one answered emergency phone numbers. Our taxi took us to the cottage complex and we and our luggage sat in heat outside unit for about forty-five minutes before anyone called us back. Their answer was they don't put key out before 2:30 because they don't want you getting in before cleaning crew has finished. Make sure you understand all their access arrangements, and they understand your flight times, if you are going to arrive outside of normal offline hours, but they were plesent and responsive in other matters and have probably made changes to procedures to avoid this in future. They did make it up at back end by giving us late check-out to better match our flight schedule.

We will be going back and will want to book this place when we do.

My fiance and I rented this cottage/condo last week and absolutely loved it! We are both 30 and enjoy being in the center of all the action, partaking in a few? adult beverages, but also prioritizing relaxing and enjoying some serenity on vacation. As soon as we walked into Colony Poolside we knew our vacation was going to be perfect! Not only is it located in the best location(3 blocks from the center of Duval, walking dist. to everything), it's also incredibly peaceful and lovely! The inside of our rental was spotless, and it was so obvious the owners have a unique talent for decorating and take much pride in caring for their property. The classy, nautical decorations, furniture, and original details were just perfect! I even took pictures for help in decorating my own nautical themed house! It was modern and very cool, and had plenty of room for the two of us. Also, fully equipped with plenty of towels, a nice TV, and cooking utensils. Outside was equally as beautiful....the two private small decks for hanging out were great. The pool with sorrounding palm trees for some shade was incredibly peaceful and relaxing. Colony Poolside is in the perfect location for all the action, but was always quiet. Other renters/owners were kind and friendly too! This place made our vacation perfect, and we would DEF. recommend staying here for your trip...way better than the hotel option! I wish we were still there...working is so overrated :)

Very clean,and at the right distance from all the noise. We had a great time. Would recommend the following; take the Yankee Freedom to the Dry Tortugas, the cost is $320.00 for two, worth every penny. Do happy hour at the Green Parrot Bar live Band and great prices. Lastly go the Boat House for Happy Hour best deal on the island.
