“Memorial Day Weekend”
Reviewed 9 June 2010 for a stay in May 2010

Our sales representative Sharon was extremely helpful. The home was very cozy, clean, and looked better than in the picture. The home was two blocks away from Duval Street, but a far from the heart of Duval Street. Overall the expirience at the vacation home was great. The only cleaniess issue was that one of the bed sheets had a huge blood stain so we went ahead and changed the sheets.

Booking couldn't have been easier, even with the relatively short notice and odd dates we needed (Tuesday to Monday). Gale Killion was our agent and she was great to work with.

The location of the property was perfect in relation to Duval St. The property itself was very nice but could have used a little TLC in the form of some burned out bulbs replaced and kitchen short on utensils and older coffee maker.

The biggest drawback of the property is the salvage yard right on the other side of the privacy fence. They start early every day and they work 7 days a week. In our case, one day they were trimming trees over their roof from adjacent properties and were standing on the roof of their business which gave them a clear view right down onto the private back yard of our property.

Would we stay at Amelia Home again? We don't know. But we would definitely deal with Gale Killion from At Home In Key West again to rent a home while staying in Key West. It's the only way to really experience Key West.

Great house for the money. Good location to everything.
Big Problem is next to the house is a metal scrapyard and they start up every morning except Sunday. Just about 6 to 6:30 the banging of tools and thumping from the music is crazy. Across the street is a home improvement guy who starts up the same time.
If you can sleep through anything I would stay here,but if you are a light sleeper or have kids I would find somewhere else.

“Beautiful backyard oasis!”
Reviewed 10 June 2009 for a stay in June 2009

Amelia Home satisfied our discriminating tastes; tastefully decorated, extremely clean and comfortable. The backyard pool area is an oasis with beautiful foliage. The home is well appointed with every-needed amenity. Our one minor maintenance need was handled promptly and efficiently. Thanks to Amanda and Dawn for their professional courtesy. Thanks to Greg Dunbar who made the rental process such a pleasure. Would definitely recommend! A fantastic place to call home while on vacation!
