Loved It

We've been coming to Key West almost every year since 1986, staying for longer visits as we've left more and more of work behind. We spent a month here in 2018 and loved it. Due back this April. The front porch, for reading the paper and drinking our 5 Brothers sweet con leche from nearly next door, and the backyard with pool for relaxing and refreshing dips and naps, were our favorites. Fenced-in property for our Westie and my bike. Friends over for dinner al fresco by candlelight on the back deck. Quiet neighborhood, even with the breakfast gang outside Pepe's (5 Brothers). Nice people nearby, comfortable bed and rooms, easy to get everywhere, and charming. Can't wait to return.

Westfield, IN

Great, authentic experience!

My husband and I had the best stay here! We loved the location, walkability, and charm of this home. You truly get the sense of what Key West is about by staying here. The owner is awesome and so accommodating- and has made the home into a fun, comfortable, and relaxing get-away! I wouldn’t second guess going here. We’re looking forward to going back one day!

Great Time At Southard Comfort

Super comfortable. Love the pool and the back patio. Great location. Close walk to several great restaurants. Far enough from the Duval madness that you can ignore it completely and close enough to walk there if you want. Denise is very helpful and really knows Key West!

Experiencing the real Key West

We wanted to experience the real Key West so decided to rent a house. We were met by the owner Denise who showed us around her house and introduced us to the neighbours who were extremely helpful during our stay. The house was beautifully clean and well fitted out with all modern appliances and comfortable beds with crisp fresh linen. High speed Wi-Fi enabled us to keep in touch with the UK. The secluded rear garden with pool was a bonus for outside eating both for breakfast and evening meals although Duval Street restaurants and bars were only 10 min walk away. We've recommended the house to friends and are looking to return next year.

Stayed: January 2018Submitted: March 07, 2018

Owner response

Thank you Colin & Laura for your nice words about "Southard Comfort". We do our best and pride ourselves in making sure the house and gardens are in perfect condition. We want each guest to experience the charm and friendliness of Key West as locals do. We hope you will pass your experience on to your family and friends and look forward to your future return! Denise
