January 24, 2023 - Track Survey

by Todd Uphoff

I would say the only concern is the restaurant next door is really loud very early in the morning. It would be nice to have traffic cones to keep people from parking in the parking spots provided.

Thank you for your Five Star review of Pete's West Cottage Key West.  The Banana Cafe a few doors down on Duval Street is convenient and delicious, but it is a very popular spot!  Unfortunately, the spaces directly in front of the cottages are city street parking and aren't reserved for the property.  We are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall and we hope to welcome you back to the island again soon!

Pete's Cottage

We love staying here. This was our second year in a row. We love the location and the pool. Rent Key West was great with their services. Suggestions include: replace the metal staircase it is so loud.

GREAT Location and a nice little cottage

by Chad V.
Pete's Cottage is in an amazing location. The cottage is cozy but nicely laid out and the pool area is very nice. The only drawback with this location is that it is quite noisy, so if you're a light sleeper you may want to consider another location further away from businesses that open early.

Beautiful Key West Cottage

by Jennifer M.
Pete’s West Cottage is so Key West. Location is great, steps from the quiet side of Duval. There are 2 amazing eateries next to this cottage. The property was very clean. Parking isn’t great.

Pete's West

by Recent Guest
Always a good time in KW. Location is good. Beach 2 blocks away and bars/restaurants close. Opposite end of Mallory Squ. Just know this place is literally 50' from Duval(busy)and right behind 2 restaurants(think deliveries-trash pick up). Pool was fantastic. Our only beef was the furniture. Indoor and outdoor. You are limited in the living room, I get it but the dining room chairs and pool furniture left our butts sore for days. Check in docs mentioned cushions. **** if we could find them. Spiral staircase may be a challenge for some. Its tight.Solid place and would give it another go.

This was amazing

by Brett B.
Me and my in laws had a blast in this place. Perfect for the weekend or short stay. There are 2 units that share a pool but we never really saw the other occupants. The plave sits right off of duvall street which is the main tourist attraction area. Basically walking distance from everything.

Great Cottage!!

by Joseph M.
We had a great stay at the cottage. Having the pool was key! Our neighbors were great. The pool is not heated which would have been perfect once the sun went down. Loved the location at the start of Duval. Great times!

Much needed week away

by Anthony C.
First off the place was very nice as expected and was in the perfect location for us. Quieter end of Duval but not a terrible walk or bike ride to the party end. Loved having the pool to relax in. Even though it was secluded in our backyard it is over looked by three different properties. Two of which have full second story views just fyi. We used the down stairs bedroom after deciding the skinny spiral staircase to the loft bedroom is very impractical for adults lol. For some reason the bedroom down stairs stays hotter than the rest of the place so that was only a slight problem. It could have been solved by leaving our bedroom door open but there are no window coverings of any kind on the back doors or kitchen windows. This allows anyone to see straight into the bedroom and the porch light is always on so it cast a good amount of light inside. That being said we had a lovely time and will likely stay here again. I recommend to the owners to invest in some basic window coverings for the back doors and kitchen window. Some people would probably prefer much more privacy than we care about lol.

Excellent Location

by Recent Guest
Location of house was perfect, one street off Duval close to restaurants and bars. Pool was great and plenty big enough to share with other side. The house could use some TLC, especially given the price of the rental. Specifically, updates needed to the bathroom, a new mattress is desperately needed in the main bedroom and overall the house could use a deep clean (our feet were black on our first day walking around barefoot). Overall we were happy with the house/locations, with the improvements noted.

Pete’s Place Checked all the Boxes ✔️

by Recent Guest
This was our first visit to Key West. We were comfortable while staying at this listing. The highlights were the pool-warm and comfortable. The location is great right off Duval, but on the less hectic end. Happy about this because the other end has hundreds of people visiting for the day from the cruise ships. The kitchen has basic items for preparing a meal. Overall, a good experience.

Pete’s cottage is even better in person! Phenomenal location just steps away from Banana Cafe. The home is immaculate, the pool is great and the Location can’t be beat. I dealt with pretty much everyone at Key West Rentals from booking to check in and out and they were all so helpful and nice! I can’t wait to come back

We loved our stay at Pete's cottage. The location was so close and convenient to everything! The cottage was clean and comfortable, and the poo area is beautiful. Our kids loved the loft and the pool. Management was quick to address any questions or concerns.

Great location and home

by Recent Guest
We stayed in Pete's West as two couples. The upstairs loft is accessed via a winding metal staircase and worked fine for us, but could be an issue for someone who is out of shape or for small children. In our case, it worked great and the property is arranged so that the two sleeping areas feel nicely separated and you can't hear each other.The pool is large and deep and heated to a perfect temperature. Our other friends with pools ending up coming to our place because of the size and privacy. The host provides four pool towels in case you forget to bring your own. There is only one bathroom, but it is well stocked with towels and washcloths. There is a small washer & dryer on the back patio to help stay on top of laundry. As with any rental house, you will need to provide your own detergent/toilet paper/coffee beyond just the starter amount. There is a small corner market and a larger CVS in walking distance for amenities.This house is down near the South end of Duval, which is fairly quiet but still has good dining options nearby. As per the listing, there is very little, if any, parking. You can rent a scooter and find a spot, or rent an electric cart across the street and park there at night, or just Uber or bike or walk everywhere.Manager's ResponseThank you for your wonderful, detailed review! This review is very accurate, so it should be helpful to future renters. We are very happy to hear that Pete's West Cottage met your needs and expectations. We look forward to you staying with us again!

La Te Da Sister's Tour

Great location with easy access to all the hot spots and right off Duvall. The cottage was supplied with paper products and necessary soaps and basic spices. Only issue was the spiral staircase to the upstairs loft. Really cannot take any sizable luggage up there. We didn't let it stop us, had a fabulous time!

Great Surface Interval!

by Recent Guest
We came to Key West for some RR. We had some playing golf and others scuba diving and some just lazed by the pool. Was a great place. Clean, nice decor and the pool was so nice to have. Some things need attention. The deck is in disrepair and not safe without sandals due to nail heads protruding. The lower bed is not comfortable and noisy with any turn. The location was great. The quiet end of Duval and right next to a wonderful little French breakfast restaurant with amazing pastry and coffee and food. We had a great time and would recommend this property. I hope that the owners make an improvement in the deck.

Florida Tour

by michael m.
We rented Pete's cottage 505 for 4 nights. We were very pleased with the rental amenities, location and interaction with KW Rentals. The property was not "oversold" regarding the quality of the property, one note I would suggest they edit on the website is in regard to having a washer/dryer in the cottage. It was not listed as having so we expected to have to go to a laundromat but upon arriving discovered that they were included with the rental.

Perfect Stay

by Bethany M.
Two adults and two teens fit perfectly in this cottage. The location was great, pool was perfect and the quaintness of the cottage was relaxing. Don’t bother with a car, parking all over is rough. We rented bikes to get around Key West and called an Uber as need to travel further from town.

Fantastic Experience! Private Paradise just steps from Duval!

by Recent Guest
Everything was seamless, Rent Key West did a great job explaining everything to us and their offices were only 2-3 blocks away from our place. There was a gentleman at the location fixing the towel rack which surprised us at first, but he was nice and was gone within the first 10 minutes of our arrival. Overall great experience, we really loved the pool area!

Another Great Stay at Pete's Cottage West

I have been renting this property every summer for the past 6 years. It is Ideally located for the restaurants at the lower end of Duval Street (the quieter end) and has a great pool (shred with next door) for cooling down in the heat.The Property is always clean and tidy on arrival, and the rental company are a dream to work with.

Great place to stay in Key West

by Heidi M.
This is my second time vacationing in Key West. The first one was in a nice hotel, but after staying in Pete's Cottage this time, I don't think I would want to stay anywhere else. It's right off Duval St, but on the quiet end. And close to all the really good stuff. The cottage was cozy and had everything we needed. I wasn't sure about staying up in the loft, but it ended up being fun. Kind of like being in a tree house. It was so cozy. with the loft located on the other side of the house from the other bedroom and kitchen, it was actually pretty quiet even though it was open. The pool was gorgeous, and since it was heated and we were there in January, that was a really great feature. Not much parking on the street, but we always managed to find a close parking spot. Can't hardly wait to go back!

Great location and thankfully with a pool !

by Recent Guest
Visited in late September which can still be quite hot. The cottage is a block off of Duval Street, so good access to all the activities there. However, also a challenge for parking should you be bringing a car.The cottage is a bit antiquated. Cabinets in kitchen coming to pieces. Old tube tv. Not much in terms of decoration. A bit dark.Nonetheless, it was clean and comfortable.Best feature was the pool in back garden. If you are coming in the summer, its a welcome amenity to spend hot afternoons around pool. We would explore by early morning and evening, and hit pool in heat of the day.If you're looking for a beach, note that the little beach down the street (Southernmost Beach) is not a great asset. Closest real beach is still Zach Taylor. But still lots of great restaurants nearby.

Spring Break 2015

by Troy B.
Cottage is in a great location, close to Duval but far enough from the crowd so you get some peace. Despite being close to a coffee shop and restaurant, noise was not bad during the day or at night. Cottage was perfect for 2 people, but I think it would be crowded for 4 and the spiral staircase to the second bedroom would challenge many people. Overall the cottage was in good shape for a rental. The mattress in the ground floor bedroom is due for replacement, however.The pool was great and we spent a lot of time out there enjoying the water and the breeze. We've stayed in several vacation rentals in KW and I think was very comparable to more expensive properties

Amazing X 10

by Robert H.
Pete's Cottage was wonderful. The location between to cafe was needless to say perfect. Being 20 feet from Duval Street allowed for my family (wife and two daughters 2 yr old and 7 yr old) the opportunity to walk as far down as possible. We were able to rent bicycles and see everything we wanted. The pool was amazing addition to the trip that set it apart from all others.

I would reccomend this location to anyone.

by Mary S.
Overall we were extremely happy with this rental . Location was great, close enough to everything to walk but far enough off from the noise of the night scene. The only negative was the debris from the trees in the pool,

Fun place to be

by Shirley M.
Loved location, nice pool, first night air did not work, was fixed next day and we were compensated for our uncomfortable first night. Circular stairs great for younger people...very clean. If you want to be near the action this is it. Would come again.

Did not sleep very well

by Recent Guest
the beds are the biggest problem with this property, The bed in the bedroom downstairs seemed broken. The box spring seemed cracked and gave us horrible sleep. I also mentioned to the office that they need to tell their guest to bring extra comforters because do not supply enough. Me and my wife fought for covers all night. We fought for a thin sheet and this thin littler cover that I guess was considered the comforter. The rest of the property was ok, the office only gave us one key for two couples but on the last day gave us another set but we didn't even bother picking up. Parking was horrible too. A truck took the parking spot in front of the place all weekend long. We were constantly nervous about getting towed away. I would much rather get another vacation rental other than this place. Manager's ResponseOnce our maintenance staff was alerted to the broken bed issue, we fixed it immediatly. There are multiple sets of keys available for all units, so even though guests may receive one set during a late night check-in, there would have been more keys made available the next morning. All of our units are fully equipped with linens; if the linens seem inadequate for your stay please contact us immmediatly and we will provide more. Parking is, unfortunatley, a constant issue in our tiny downtown area. Also, during this particular stay there was construction taking place at one of the homes close by, lending even more challenge to the parking issue. When staying in downtown Key West, consider renting scooters or bicycles. A full size car is often not needed in the downtown area.

Pete's West Cottage

by Michael W.
This was the 3rd time I have rented Pete's Cottages from Rent Key West Vacations. Each time has been a painless and professional experience.The Cottages are ideally placed at the quieter end of Duval Street, not far from the Southernmost Point, and the beech.I have written a more expanded review on flipkey from previous visits.I will be renting this property again, for next years visit.

Another great rental on Louisa!

by Tracy C.
This was my third visit to the island and my third time staying in a Rent Key West property on Louisa - my favorite rental thus far! Great location & the surrounding area isn't as crowded as the other end of Duvall. Pool was fantastic and the updates to the home were well done. My only concern was the spiral staircase up to the loft - it is SUPER narrow and treacherous to navigate while sober, much less after a few cocktails. Couldn't safely get a suitcase up so all luggage stayed in the living room - worked out fine though since we were rarely sitting in front of the TV during the week. 🙂

Our Week in Paradise!

by John C.
Nothing could have been beeter including getting great neighbors.. I would definitely look into a sleeper sofa for the front room and seeing about somehow reinforcing those metal steps for less jingling sound they are really loud! Also, control of the fountain would be great, since we got along with the neighbors and I guess we were all older, it was too loud too talk so we asked to have it turned off eventually! They did an incredible job with the place and would like to inquire about future dates and next new year when possible!Thank you, John Chiaffa

Great Location Private Getaway

by Caitlin C.

On the opposite end of the Party on Duval Street, this little cottage is perfectly hidden. The pool and features of the West cottage will enhance your stay and make you feel like a local. The master bed should be replaced as it is so severly sagging, we had a hard time sleeping. It would also be nice if synthetic pillows were available. We were also a bit disappointed that no dishwasher detergent. laundry soap or sponges were stocked and the two small rolls of toilet paper were hardly enough to get a family of four through two days. Overall, I would rent the west cottage again when returning to Key West.

Thank you for your review of Pete's West Cottage.  We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and we greatly appreciate your feedback so we can address those issues.  We are very pleased that you would rent the cottage again and we hope to welcome you back soon!
