Length Of Stay Seven days
Location: Key West, Florida, on the eastern end of the island. Basically, at the quiet end of the island, near the Casa Marina Hotel.
Ownership-Management The timeshare is managed by an internal management company. The Starwood family that owned the property used to build the timeshare has been actively onsite and owns units permanently. The staff are effective and professional and keep costs reasonable for guests and owners.
Restaurants Key West food varies in quality. Louie’s Backyard is next door (private entrance through bar available). The quality has dropped in Louie’s in our opinion, they used to be fabulous for lunch. Try the King’s Table nearby or walk down Duvall a short distance to find a wide variety of places. .
Size Approximately 40 (units consist of 1 bedroom and studio lockoff units, so may be subdivided into two separate units) There are also larger suites in one building.
Rooms Good quality – comfortable resort style conch house (Tin roof over wood). Rooms facing the ocean have a wonderful view, especially in the morning, when the sun rises. View above is taken from balcony of ocean view room on first floor.
Facilities Spa, swimming pool, barbecue grills, daily bar in the afternoons. Use of the Casa Marina facilities for watersports and beach. Note that many of the timeshare owners now have adolescent children, and the pool area can be very rowdy and annoying to those who seek quiet and calm. Daily concierge service has contacts for fishing, boating, scuba diving and bicycles.
The beach is very small, almost non existent depending on the tides. The beach at the Casa Marina hotel is much nicer, although the relationship with the resort seems vague and uncomfortable.
Date Of Review November 2001
Ease Of Reserving A Room Owners frequently turn their property over for rental by the management company, and reservations are often available. We obtained ours through an owner.
Overall Service Good service
