HIGHLY RECOMMEND Staying at Tom's place.
Tom is a great landlord, his place is right on Duval Street and is made up of 3 different suites. It's located on the 2nd floor above several stores. Upon arrival, he had the A/C cranked up for us and the place very neat, everything in the unit is very updated.
The place is centrally located in the perfect spot on Duval street, so you are not too close to the bars that the noise will keep you up at night but also within perfect walking distance. There are certainly tons of places to visit within a 1 minute walk too. We enjoyed watching the club across the street on the patio with a cigar in the midst of our night. It was nice to be able to do things in key West and pop back into our suite before we did another thing.
He had accommodated us despite switching our check-in time on him the day before. Initially he got the place prepped for early check in (12:30PM) and then because of a trip we booked, we had to switch it to around 5:00PM. He had communicated detailed instructions on how to get into the place despite not being able to meet us and it was super simple with his instruction sheet he provided.
Tom was so nice, the next day, my friends car died, Tom actually was at the building cleaning the other units and dropped everything he was doing to leave his parking spot and help us jump his car 2-3 blocks down on Duval street. We were so lucky we didn't have to wait for Tom and he had jumper cables and was able to help us out so quick!!
Thank you Tom - will stay again on our next visit!
