The property was awesome. Its location, close to Duval St, the museums and Mallory Square made this a perfect place to stay. Everything is in walking distance. The pool, although chilly for some, was perfect after a day of strolling about or for a morning wake up plunge. The mattresses could be updated, but we still got peaceful nights rest. All three couples said they would definitely stay here again.(And the iguana was a pleasant surprise too!)

Great Location

Great location for all the action of Duvall St and Mallory Square. The house is great. But the pool area is not really private, as the owner does reside in the front part of the house. It would be nice to have some curtains or blinds on the windows since owner may walk around the pool area at any time. Other than that, really loved staying here. Great house, great location.

Awesome location, fun pool, very comfy!

My husband and I stayed here with another family and loved it. The location is amazing--You can walk just about everywhere, which allowed us to pack a lot of fun into our stay without having to worry about where to park, packing everyone into a car, etc. Others have mentioned the bar noise but it didn't bother us as we brought a white noise machine. The kids loved the pool, which was much bigger than we had expected, and the pool area is landscaped beautifully and very private. The house itself is a bit run down, and could use some updating, but we were very comfortable there and it was clean. I would definitely recommend this house to a friend if they were going to Key West!

The property is a bit dated and needs to be upgraded, ie, at least 1/2 bath added downstairs, towel racks would be nice. As far as location it rates a #1.

Brad was great making sure everything was ready for me,but when I visited the office Steve was not cool telling my son make sure we clean up and throw away trash. This wasn't my first time renting a house so I thought that was special. Brad was cool, the location was awesome, and the overall stay was great. Thank you

The location and grounds of the property are close to perfect, especially if your plan is to be in very close proximimty to all of the nightlife in which everything is just a short walk away. The property is in good condition, although some things have been neglected over the years and it could use some improvements. Our primary issue is that it isn't very practical for a large group. The 2 bedrooms downstairs jointly share 1 bathroom. One bedroom also does not have doors, but rather what appear to be closet style doors (slotted) which gives very little privacy or noise barrier at all. The upstairs master bdrm is quite nice and spacious, but it is a loft style with again no door so privacy is quite limited. Also, with a private bath upstairs and no door you can end up with other houseguests walking up to use that bathroom and again without a door it's hard to control for example a friend/family member walking into your bedroom while you are sleeping to use the bathroom. Ultimately if you demand privacy for your group this isn't for you, but if you can live with this to have a great location and private pool/grounds you may easily overlook it.

Great home location only needs better parking for a house of its

Loved the spaciousness of this home, and the fact that we never had to use our car! ate star fruit from the tree by the front door, and the yard fellow was most happy to help retrieve more from high branches! Washer/dryer in back convenient.
Negatives: loud music from parallel Duval Street until the wee hours. We moved downstairs into an interior BR. Also, the master bed although beautiful, was wobbly!
Kitchen overhead light blew out second night, but we did not call it in b/c since we had pets and were coming and going frequently,mit would have been a pain to schedule the repair. Partially our call there.
Fourth night there we had a TERMITE SWARM having left one light on over the kitchen table! Notified Brad about this! VERY SCARY experience...we also live in an old home and have dealt with them, so we know the beasties! Had them by my bedside and several on me that night. Ewwwwwww!
Front gate was difficult to open upon our arrival (screw loose from repeated tugging on it), but staff did send a fellow who replaced the screw.
Overall loved this house and it's amazing almost secret location in the heart of downtown, but need to replace the upstairs bed and deal with the termites.

Our groups 3rd consecutive year stay @ Whitehead House. Location can't be beat as it is in the middle of Old Town. While the linens were clean, the bedspreads and throw mats through out the house are in need of cleaning, and the living area floors could also use a good mopping. Other than that, we love the house location and the seclusion of the pool area - Hard to believe you are in downtown Key West when lounging at the pool.

Another GREAT vacation @ Whitehead House

2nd year for our group here and it was wonderful. Can't get a better location in the middle of everything. Late night neighborhood noise did not concern us. House needs some TLC for minor items. Called to report a couple minor concerns & Rent Key West responded promptly. We'll be back next year.

The property needs to be somehow be soundproofed so that those sleeping upstairs might get some rest. I stayed there six years ago and the noise from Duval was significantly less.

You advertise free WiFi. However, the connection speed is so slow as to be practically useless for anything other than reading e-mail. The owner should upgrade to a faster ISP.

House had a great location and the pool was nice. Kitchen, bathrooms and furniture was very old and rundown. Close to everything but very noisy all night long (until 3am or later, bars close at 4).

Great location but in a fairly loud music area (but not a deal breaker). Overall a nice place to stay but was let down by the size of the downstairs bathroom (mainly the shower....barely wash a small dog....just kidding but it was very small). Overall cleanliness was only O.K. and furnishings were pretty outdated but comfortable. Outside/pool area was beautiful and pool was very refreshing (another word for alittle cool...but felt great on sunburn). Very tropical poolside and the location is in the middle of everything! TV was only able to get one channel but then again we are not there to watch TV...right? Overall a very good place to stay and would enjoy returning again to this property. Rental people very good to work with.

Great location. Sometimes a bit loud late into the night, but not unexpectedly. Pool area can smell like a dirty bar depending upon the wind - back end of Grunts is right over the fence. Had everything we needed and the process of renting, checking in, and checking out were very easy. Look forward to working with this rental company again.

This house is in the PERFECT Key West location if you are looking for a true "Old Town" experience. It is a block from all of the best shopping, restaurants, bars and clubs. A short drive or long walk gets you to the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. Yes, the location is noisy. (The second story master bedroom is gorgeous, but very noisy both at night and in the early morning when garbage and delivery trucks are in the area.) Yes, the pool is cold. However, the easiest and least expensive thing to fix was the most bothersome: The window treatments leave something to be desired if you want to sleep late. The staff at Rent KW was fantastic as usual. I recommend this house to anyone who is there for the type of all day and all night fun that we were looking for.
