Thank you for your 5 star review! We appreciate it. Unfortunately, Hurricane Irma cut your vacation short when the mandatory evacuation order was issued. It sounds like you still enjoyed your time with us and didn't let the hurricane spoil your trip! We are looking forward to your next stay with us!

The Louisa House is in a good location within walking distance to just about everything in town. The house was large, and clean with plenty of room. Some things were slightly run down here and there but for the most part it was a very pleasant stay. The parking would have been a problem if there wasn't a driveway as there was ALWAYS someone parked right outside the house, morning, noon, and night.

Wonderful house not far from the action but far enough to not hear it. Home was stocked with everything we could need upon arrival. The pool was a perfect size for the seven of us and much larger than most in key west. The mangoes falling from the trees created a little clean up each morning and did attract some local animals eating them but didn't pose an issue. Would definitely recommend and may stay here again in the future. Thanks for a wonderful place to call home for the week :)

A great place to stay!

The house slept 8 people very easily with more than enough room for each person. The 3.5 baths made heading out that much easier for everyone as well. Great pool and outdoor space for grilling and hanging out. The house was excellent and with-in a mile walk of everything.

Awesome house, close to everything!

Great property & location! We had a group of 6 stay here for our wedding week and everyone really enjoyed lounging by the pool and the close walk to all Key West activities! My only suggestion would be to fix the fence to give the pool more privacy otherwise fantastic place! Would definetly consider staying here again.

The house was clean and although close to neighbors, very quiet, well, except for us. The rooms are quite a bit smaller then the pictures, but we only used them to sleep. The outdoor area was perfect. If I had one complaint, and this has nothing to do with owner/realtor, but if someone parks in front of the house in a big truck, it's def hard to get in and out of with bags or luggage.

The house was nice and roomy and you can’t beat the location! All the amenities were provided and although we brought back-ups as suggested, we didn't have to use our own t.p., dish soap, laundry detergent, etc. There were spices and other kitchen basics already in the cupboards. The pool was really nice and when I reported the patio umbrella missing, it was replaced the next morning. Pool towels are also provided. We loved staying here and will definitely stay again. The fact that it was pet friendly was a huge bonus but it did not smell like it was pet friendly at all. I would highly recommend this house!

Amazing and filled with lots of laughter. We filled this house up with amazing friends. Which, is a must. It has everything, but great room configuration. One master with small bathroom upstairs. Then, three tiny rooms with one other bathroom upstairs. We all had white noise machines in our room! But the location was excellent. House was clean. We cooked at home several nights. The rental people were amazing and helped with packages shipped to house.
Would rent again with really good friends. No room for anything less

We would like to see more amenities in the kitchen. We do a lot of cooking and having the kitchen better equipped , for the rental price, would be A welcomed addition!

The rental company was very spot on with returning emails or calls with questions I had.

Great. The heated pool was a very big hit. Location is perfect for all Key West activities. Rent Key West management went over the top to make sure all went perfectly. One small problem. The neighbor across the street, David, had friends on his front porch Friday night till 3:00 in the morning and they were very loud. I stepped asked them to be quiet and they got louder.

I originally tried to look at this property on Google Earth, but could not see the pool from the air. Once we got there I realized that it was because of a massive palm tree that provides a great amount of seclusion and shade to the property. We spent a large amount of time in the amply sized pool and cooked on the full sized gas grill for many of our meals. Saw two regularly visiting iguanas that made their rounds each day. The place was just as it looked in the pictures, and the rental manager was as accommodating as they could possibly be. Since the property is accessed via codes and not keys, I didn't even have to go to the office when we left, only gave them a quick call to say we were leaving. The master bath is really really small, but hey, its Key West! We had 7 people and a minivan, which barely fit into the driveway, but it did. I would stay here again without hesitation.

We were a party of 8 and the house was fantastic, except for one outside issue. I would have given a 5-star rating for all categories had it not been for a rotted tree in the back yard. The tree was removed in the middle of our stay but we did have to deal with a horrible smell for four days and then a fallen portion. Since we spent most of our time outside, it had an impact on the first half of our stay. Apart from that, the house was great and the location could not have been better. The management company staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I would definitely recommend this house. We had a great time in a great place.

The Louisa house is better than the pictures even. There's plenty of space, it's well stocked with games, kitchen is well stocked, and pool was great. We had an amazing time. The only thing I would change is the bedroom and bathroom doors are all slatted so there's no privacy. They put a panel on the back of the master bedroom door. They should do that with all of them.

Perfect location one block from Duval, yet private and quiet. Loved sitting in the balcony and taking in the ocean breeze. Great pool/patio area. No need to drive, you can walk or bike anywhere in old town from this house. Parking space an added plus. Very comfortable inside. The management company excelled in courtesy and service.

When we first arrived I thought, "oh no" this may be too close to Duvall street and all the action. I was wrong. This is half block off Duvall and very convenient. On the quieter end of Duvall and close to all the beaches. 4BR and 4bath accommodated our family very well. Had a well stocked kitchen; right down to the shrimp de-veiner which we learned how to use. The visit by the iguana is a added bonus. He is quite polite and non-intrusive.

Great Spring Break at the Louisa House.

We just came back from a great week at the Louisa house. The house is in a perfect location to walk to almost everything in Key West. Higgs beach was easy walk and a nice shallow beach to swim and even snorkel along the jetty. The house was very clean when we arrived and the ceiling fans and AC kept everything cool. Our party was 4 adults and 4 girls between the ages of 13-16 and we had plenty room so we didn't feel like we were cramped. The pool was great and kept the girls busy when we wanted to hang out at the house. Kitchen well stocked and very functional. In total, a great stay. We would stay here a again.

Louisa House was a nice experience. Far enough off Duval to be quiet but close enough to walk almost everywhere. House was nice and clean but could use some repair, especially the kitchen. Rooms were small and provided no place to store clothing. The pool was very nice, along with the outside furniture and we enjoyed the pool very much, especially the kids. Outside upstairs porch was very nice and always a nice breeze there. Overall the house was beautiful and the location nice.

This is the second time we have used Rent Key West and would definitely use them again. Brad who completed our Rental Agreement was very professional and responded quickly to my questions through e-mail or by phone. The entire process before our stay was extremely positive. Likewise, the Louisa House
was a great choice for our family of 8 adults and 2 children. The living arrangements were very comfortable and provided a significant amount of space
for everyone. Unfortunately, the only disappointment was the deck/pool area in
the back of the house. We did enjoy the pool after a day at the beach, but
experienced a loose board around the pool, poorly maintained patio furniture and
in the patio table there was a beach umbrella instead of an appropriate table
umbrella which limited our time at the table because it was directly in the sun. We love the atmosphere of Key West and our overall stay at the Louisa House was very positive, enjoyable and a great deal of fun! A sincere thank you to the Rent Key West Vacation Team for making our family birthday celebration a successful vacation.

6 of us rented this house for a week. The house was comfortable with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The pool was amazing - very private and relaxing. It was surrounded by mango trees - so fresh fruit everyday. We loved the concierge service which made planning excursions very easy - from day trip to dry Tortuga to sunset cruises to bike rentals to groceries. We would definitely stay there again.

Best vacation EVER!!!!

The house was clean and spacious. Plenty of room for everyone (there were 5 of us). Plenty of dishes and drinking glasses. Was pleasantly surprised that the cleaning people had left unused condiments in the refrigerator and unopened food in cabinets for our use. (We left food for the next tenants, too)

We had a car but only needed it for grocery shopping. The proximity to Duvall Street and Old Town was perfect. Couldn't have asked for anything better and can't wait to come back and rent this house again. It was worth every penny spent.

We had a very nice stay, but there were some things I would change. Their wasn't enough silverware for the six of us, the bathroom doors were bad. We had a 8 month old bady and we could not put her on the floors because they weren't that clean. The vacuume they had didn't work. There was food in the couch and rotting in some doors. I just feel for what I paid it should have been perfect , but the floor plan was nice.

Great location..bedrooms are sufficient..the pool and deck was a great area to relax and I loved tropical landscaping. I am surprised by the negative feedback in prior reviews. Our 1 week stay was fantastic. The house was clean, we had more then enough bath towels and beach towels for 10 people. The front porch and upper balcony are furnished with wicker as is the back deck. Our air conditioner did not work on the day of our arrival, however within 1/2 hour of us reporting the problem someone was there to fix it. We also had enough glasses and plates for 10 people on any given day.(except for forks)I can not say enough about this place, the pictures and description do not give the house enough credit. Great place for a large family/families to stay while in Key West.Surprising large house with plenty of furniture inside and outside.

When we walked in we were all so excited that we had succeeded in shopping online for a perfect house. It got better as we looked at the furnishings. They had all the towels (pool and bath), pots, glasses, dishes, new gas grill, blow dryers, washer/dryer and ironing board. Beds were good - room sizes small but good. Plenty of hot water for showers at the same time. Ran low on silverware and could have used steak knives but if that was our only complaint - I'd say we had a successful stay.

The sitting areas around the pool were great for 8 of us to lounge and dining. Ample chairs, sofa's lounge chairs and tables.

Location felt very safe and is very convenient to walk to Southern Most Beach and all the Duval Street shops and restaurants. Even our seniors walked to a lot of them.

Highly recommend this house for a large group.

Overall, the stay was great. The house was plenty large enough and very, very clean. No lingering odors. No scary mold. The air conditioning worked really well. The beds were comfy. The decor was tropical and tasteful. The pool was delightful. The keypad entrance was fantastic. Plenty of towels, both bath and pool. Plenty of space to lock up our 7 bikes. WiFi was nice. Wonderful, quiet location.

Now the nitpickies.

The dresser in the master closet was falling apart, and we weren't able to use all the drawers. And speaking of the master closet, the righthand corner ceiling was falling down and wet, so be careful what you put on the shelf. We didn't have any issues, but leaks keep leaking.

I was told the dripping showerhead was on a punch list. But I also saw it mentioned in another review. It was annoying, but I rigged up my own rain chain so the water ran straight to the drain.

The louvered doors. Now I get that it would provide ventilation throughout the house, probably helping with air conditioning costs. But it does limit privacy, which could be important, depending on the group.

There seemed to be pressure differences in plumbing. The john found in the washing room had to be flushed twice to get the water to go down once. And the john off the pool had a similar issue.

As I said, nitpicky. Overall, I was very pleased with the accommodations. For 7 people, it certainly fit the bill.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this house again.

One husband needs his space at times, as well as many of us, in this house, you have plenty of room to go and read or be alone if you need it. The pool and deck area was wonderful to spend the day at and chill out around. The management company responded to 2 small issues we had within a day. Everyone we spoke with, Sean and Brad were professional and helpful! Thank you! We had an amazing week and would rent this property again! Almost forgot, we rented mid June, mango season! So we had plenty of fresh mangos for drinks, making fresh mango salsa!

The house is overall excellent but you'd better be close to the people you travel with. The interior doors are terrible. They aren't true doors at all.

The pool towels were polyester and the bath towels were extremely small and thin.

Louisa House is in a great location. just 1/2 block off Duval St but at the quiet end. banana Café right at the corner for breakfast needs! house has good layout and good size pool. we were three couples which was perfect. one bedroom is very small, only room to move on one side and at the end. loved the landscaping around pool. Pool towels need to be upgraded, most were polyester which does not absorb. they must have had a water leak issue as there is a slight mildew smell at the bottom of the stairs but not throughout the house. It looks as though they clean the cabinet doors as the paint has been rubbed off but they still have a sticky feel to them. not a big deal though as I'd go back today.

We had a total of 3 couples and a single male at the Louisa House and found the home to be a perfect size! (except for a couple of the bathrooms which were really small). The living areas were spacious and nicely decorated. The property could have been cleaner for my taste, but I am relatively picky about that. The pool area was great and seemed to be our hangout and unwind spot.

The location was just what we wanted. We were very close to the quiet end of Duval Street. The popular and noisy night spots were a bit of a walk but do-able. I would recommend renting bikes (there's a rental place right around the corner from Louisa House). We covererd a lot of territory on the bikes and could get to everything very easily.

I was impressed also with the staff at KeyWest Rental. They were very helpful and friendly each time I contacted them.

Would recommend this rental property!

The location of Louisa House is perfect for visitors who want to be in the heart of Key West! It has room for one vehicle to park next to the house. We rented scooters because there are so many convenient places to park them next to attractions.....not at all easy to park a car....very very limited! The house was comfy and we especially loved the dining/kitchen area that opened to a tropical pool setting. We like to cook...not eat out all the time and wished the kitchen had a couple sharp knives, pizza cutter, pie plate and that is why I rated a 4 on amenities. The beds were comfy as well as the other furniture. The rental staff was very professional and had landscaping workers arrive the very next day to retrieve fallen mangoes in the pool deck area. We just happened to be there during the season that mangoes ripen and fall from the trees! LOTS OF MANGOES! I would definitely recommend this house to a family or group of friends wanting to visit Key West! We had a wonderful stay!

This house is very roomy for 3 couples. We spent most of our time outside by the pool which was more than we expected. Some of the other reviews complained about the lack of privacy due to the louvered doors on the bedrooms and bathrooms. This never was an issue for us, maybe because we were never all inside at the same time. Having the parking space next to the house was a life saver since we had a rental car. There is very limited street parking and it seemed like this house was only one of few that had it's own parking space. We did not want to use the heater for the pool and told the management company when we arrived to turn it off. They did so and told me they would refund me the $500 deposit in a few weeks. They credited my credit card without any problems or delay!! The location was very close to South Beach and many shops and restaurants if you don't want to go to the other end of Duvall. There is a coffee shop and cafe at the end of Louisa. I would definitely recommend this house to friends and would stay there again.

Great location, bedrooms adequate-clean linens, the pool and deck are landscaped very nicely with a tropical feeling. Lots of bathrooms and great to have a washer and dryer. The kitchen was not furnished sufficiently for a house this size-only 4 glasses one of which was so chipped that we threw it away, 3 serving bowls-2 were cracked and leaked, the teflon flaked off the pans into the food. The safe, ironing board and some dresser drawers were broken.
Thought we would have more than 4 beachtowels. Outside lights did not work and no instructions for pool temperature control-something you don't think about until usage is deducted from your damage deposit. We were there for a son's wedding and did some entertaining-when we called management they did send a new set of glasses the next day but of course too late for the first party we had. It was obvious that management had not done a walk through for sometime as it was dirty-caked on dust, food splashed up on kitchen window and blinds. When we brought this up again at check out she said something like-'you already told us about these things and we made note to tell housekeeping' She was not very cordial; thought we would at least get a heartfelt apology. Unless they fix these things we would not recommend this house-there are a lot of other homes to pick from.

Our stay at the Louisa house was a pleasant experience at best. The location is great, 2 blocks from the Southern Most Point beach and several blocks to the entertaining side of Duval, cabs are a must!

The house was okay. Both AC's struggled to keep the house cool. The upstairs shower glass door shattered while one of our guests was showering because it wasn't installed properly (its a miracle he wasn't badly injured), the swarming termites that kept most of us up half the night and a very noisy street.

The staff at RentKey West was great and they did respond immediately to the broken shower door and the termites. All in all we had an okay house experience but a great Key West experience.
