“Peaceful paradise!”

After a day of the hustle and bustle of Duval Street, what a wonderful place to come "home" to. It was home, but so much better. Seashell Cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed the hot tub almost nightly. We only used the indoor shower once. Why shower indoors when you can shower outside with palm trees overhead? Carolyn and Wendi forgot nothing. The cottage is very well appointed and the bed was like laying on a cloud. We went to Fausto's and bought groceries, wine and beer, so we could have some downtime and just hang out in our little paradise. We grilled steaks and tilapia one night and another night we grilled some cheeseburgers (in paradise). I forgot to bring a book to read, but no worries! There are many to choose from at the cottage. Kitties stopped over to greet us as we rocked on the porch swing. So many nice touches. I would not think of staying anywhere else on future trips to Key West. This is THE BEST!

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Seashell Cottage.

All of the things you mentioned are my personal favorites, especially having coffee on the front porch swing and being entertained by the feline residents of the lane.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a fun review.

Looking forward to your return!

“We miss it already!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is our third time staying with Lazy Lane Cottages, but our first time in the Seashell Cottage. All I can say is that the pictures on the website are amazing...but they don't do this place justice! It is beautiful! First of all, I love working with Carolyn. She is sweet, and she answers any questions you might have very quickly. That means a lot when you are spending time researching a place to stay. Upon arriving we were lucky enough to meet Wendi, who takes care of the place. You can tell she loves it there, and puts all of her energy into making sure you are comfortable and happy.

You can't beat the location of "The Lane". It's quiet, filled with friendly locals and it is close to all of our favorite places. The cottage is very clean, and it has anything you need to get through a week or even a month! Love that outdoor shower...now that's something you can't get away with living in the cold Midwest! I wish we had more than a week to fully enjoy everything it had to offer. I can go on and on, but the other reviews say it all. The only problem is that it's so popular, you might find it hard to book the week you want. I think that's a good thing!

Renting from Lazy Lane embodies everything we love about Key West, and it breaks my heart to leave every time. The good part is looking forward to the next trip.

Thanks again for a truly memorable vacation (again)!

...and we miss you already!

You have definitely discovered the magic of "the lane" and expressed it so passionately. It is such a unique setting in a special part of Key West. We do our best to exemplify that feeling in the Seashell Cottage and Poinciana Place accommodations. We want our guests to enjoy being here as much as we do!

Wendi and I so appreciate that you have taken the time to write this sweet review and we will look forward to your return.

“A beautiful oasis off of Duval offering everything that you could want.”
Reviewed 12 April 2013 for a stay in June 2012

My wife and I have stayed twice at the Seashell Cottage and both times were incredible. It is a wonderfull home away from home that offers you an oasis right in the middle of everything going on in Key West. Although it's only a stone's throw away from Duval, it is like having a peaceful secluded paradise all to yourself. A fully equiped one bedroom home, featuring such novelties as a full deck with bbq, spa, hammock and outdoor shower. The home is immaculate, well furnished and stocked with every possible item you can think of. Although we won't be going this year, we will certainly try and visit "our" little cottage in the near future. Thank you Carolyn and Wendi for ALWAYS taking such great care of us.
