“Mixed feelings about this cute rental in an ideal location”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

When we first arrived at Ann Street Gardens, it was love at first sight. The pool area is amazing and the location is literally one block off Duval.

The highlight here is the private outdoor covered area and the pool area. As fas as the interior space... It is small but well equipped. Before you go shopping check under the kitchen sink for past tenants left overs. Laundry Detergent, Dryer sheets , etc. There is also a cabinet under the flat screen TV that has various sunscreens, light bulbs, etc.

Bathroom, Off the bedroom. The tub is in advanced stages of peeling and discoloration. I tried spray bleachh to no avail. I was disappointed. We also ran out of bathroom tissue two days prior to leaving. No back stock that we were aware of. Just went to CVS at 12 Duval. I was not calling management for tissue paper. Awkward call right? They musst estimate usage.

Otherwise the pictures are accurate..

What you neeed to know:

Directly across the street is City Hall and the Visitation Center. The electronic gate to employee parking lot is non stop. You hear it beeping opening an closing all day, even in the pool area.

The Conch Tour Trolley Drivers park across the street on their breaks often.

Every morning, beetweeen 5 and 7 you will hear the bottles from the city being crashed and dumped. Even wiith windows closed and with A/C, its loud.

City Hall is ccurrently being repointed. The machinery is quite loud.

Several surrounding Streets are getting new sidewalks , especially Caroline. It's loud.

Other things of note you need to understand:

Ann Street says no one under 16 is allowed. However, a couple of other properties pay an association fee to use the pool outside the unit and I believe this is for the laundry as well.
Sure enough, the loud grandkids of the neighbor checked in last night and adds more noise to the area.

Ann Street is a very short one way street, one block off Duval. The drunks love to argue outside, scream, hollar and use the property rubbish can in the driveway to empty the bottles. There is a quiet time between 10-1. Then it gets interesting until 4 in the morning, yes 4. If this is for you, knock yourself out.

Property Issues:

Three days before leaving, we noticed loud noises in ceiling. Something was living in there! Management was great they responded immediately, butt was somewhat disappointeed that we were expectted to stay at the property to let them in. Theu closed up some lare holes in teh exterior.

Internet: Two days before leaving we lost ttelevvision and internett. Again, management was great, but had to stay at property to let tech guy in. More time. The bill apparently, was not paid.

Other internet issues:

Ignore Network names and passwords given at offfice and in Binderf at Unit. They do not work. Go in the kitchen, look at the router and use all that information.

All in all, we did have some nice afternoons at the pool and relaxed, jusst not sure we will come back.

BEWARE: No blinds in the kitchen and neighbors and anyone at the pool can see you while you are cooking or hanging out. Owner was informed but no action taken. This is why I don't give it a 5 star. Other then that the location is obviously the best if you want to stay near the action. The cottage has all the amenities that you certainly need. Bathroom is a bit small as well as the bedroom. The next door neighbor is outside every day working on anything around his house. He seems to be always upgrading his home. You will hear him outside bright and early. All delivery trucks seem to park right in front of the cottage to delivered their goods to the bars and restaurants. I would stay here again but we would have to cover the kitchen windows like the last time we stayed there. Enjoy Key West!

“Probably the best rental location”
Reviewed 20 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

Historic Hideaways provides excellent service for a carefree rental. Ann St. Garden is located near enough to everything (Duval, Mallory Sq.Z. Taylor State Park etc) that you never need a car. Although close to everything Key West, the property is extremely quiet. The Garden area and pool make it ideal for those who wish quiet restful time. The home itself has everything you need from well furnished kitchen, comfortable living areas with good TV's and enough outside furniture to match any persons needs

“Hidden Gem in Old Town Key West”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The Ann St cottage was perfect for our Key West vacation. We parked our car when we arrived and walked everywhere on the island until we left, using the hop-on, hop-off trolley to get around. What we loved best about this property is the outdoor room. It is large and private, making it very comfortable. We ate all of our meals outside! The kitchen is well-equipped and we established a pattern of walking to the nearby seafood market daily - we steamed local lobster at home, grilled tuna and grouper and enjoyed stone crab claws each evening. It was an awesome and affordable way to experience Florida's seafood. One disappointment was that the pool water was too cold to swim and, in November, the daily sunshine did not reach our pool area.

“Could not have been better!”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Check-in with Bill was a breeze. He provided the excellent advice that we should see which items (paper plates, soaps, trash bags, etc.) were already in the rental before we went shopping. The rental itself was very clean and contained everything we needed for the visit. The location could not be beat. We were quickly to our destinations whenever we went out. The grounds were quiet and the pool area contained lush tropical landscaping, which created a wonderful environment when we sat out there. The pool itself was large, clean and seemed to never be too warm or cold - so I assume it was temperature regulated. Highlights of the rental were the covered outdoor patio with ceiling fan and large comfortable living room. We have been coming to Key West for several years and this is easily our favorite rental in terms of size, amenities and location. I really have no negative comments about our experience.
