“Blast in Key West!”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We were very pleased with the accommodations. Everything with our rental went smooth and exactly as communicated. The condo is bright cheery and clean. We enjoyed the well maintained pool right outside the condo. We also enjoyed Public beaches just down the road. The complex where the condo is located seems very secure. We had no worries day or night. Loved the combination door lock so there was no key to worry with. We went to Old Town Key West several nights for Fantasy Fest. Cab service was great and reasonable considering what parking would have cost if it could be found. Bicycle rental was available right on the property. We rented bikes and rode on the bicycle road along the water. We were given a best of Key West information sheet via email from the Rachell's that we referred back to through our trip to find good food and fun things to do. We also rented a scooter for a few days so we could explore the island fully. Great trip and great place to stay. The only problem we had was the thermostat battery went dead. We called the maintenance manger and the problem was taken promptly.

“I would stay again..”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This unit was great. Right outside was pool and beautiful view. I will say there again without hesitation. Location was is in a great spot for everything you might want to do in the keys. No need for beach chair, beach towels or pool things. They provide thoughs for you. Great place for adults and kids alike. Everything you could want in a place for a home away from home.. Grill and picnic tables are also locatex by the pool which was great. I want to thank the owners Susan and Steve fir the use of their property.. 5 *****

“Long-Time Renters from the Rachells”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We have leased this unit at least a half dozen times from the Rachells and never in the past decade of leasing and staying in the unit have we ever had a moment of negative experience. Our most recent stay was from July 30 to August 7, 2016. Each year(somtimes twice a year) we stay in the Rachell's condo, we often bring family and friends with us. Each person who has stepped foot in the unit have been overly pleased not with the spacious room in the unit, but the decor and cleanliness of the unit is superb. Everything one needs, less groceries, is provided by the Rachells to ensure a very enjoyable stay!

I am extremely suprised and quite frankly skeptical of the negative review provided by another lessor of the unit. All the complaints are issues that in the decade of staying in the unit on different occassions we have not experienced. In fact, I have not seen one bug in the unit, must less a bed full of bugs. The beds are quite comfortable and I know for a fact that new mattresses were placed in the unit a year or so ago because we happened to be staying in the unit and the were notified that new matteress were to be delivered after our departure date. :-) As far as bug bites ... anyone who visits Key West knows to be on the look out for sand fleas. One of our traveling companions this most recent trip a couple of weeks ago received many bites from Smather's Beach on the Atlantic side of the island. It was her first visit to Key West and did not know how to be on the look out of sand fleas.
So, you can see why my wife and I are quite skeptical of the negative review.

Rookie visitors of Key West should educate themselves on what to expect from the climate, habitat, culture, etc., before arriving to assure that wrong assumptions and incorrect claims are made against such wonderful owners who truly maintain such a gorgeous condo unit!

We will continue to lease from the Rachells for the next decade (unless we hit the lottery and are able to purchase our own vacation unit LOL).

Liked best: As always, the serene atmospher and quietness.
Liked least: Hard to come up with a like least. Duval Street is for the normal traveler a bit of a distance to walk. However, it is a wonderful bike ride and the Key West transit operates from early morning to late evening.
