I believe this was our 5th or 6th year we've stayed at the Island Queen and we are never disappointed. Thanks to Rosemary and Mark's meticulous care of their home, there are never any surprises. This property has always been immaculatey kept, continuously updated and offers such a unique opportunity to experience the island lifestyle. Location cannot be beat as everything Key West is just a quick walk away. Rosemary's property manager Connie was so great and very easy to work with. You can trust the owners to be as professional as they come. All the details are fine tuned and always taken care of and our security deposit was refunded before we even made it home. You just can't ask for more from a vacation rental property and its owners. We will always look forward to returning to this great property! Thank's once again for a wonderful week at your Key West home!!
This upscale property with it's expansive courtyard and well maintained landscaping is located in the beautiful gated community of Truman Annex. Having walked by it many times, it was my husband's and my dream to stay here, and we can't say enough about how special it was when we finally did! The owners love for and extreme pride in their home is evident everywhere and if you have high expectations and standards, this is the perfect place for you. Owners' house rules are explicit and easy to follow. This property is well suited for two adult couples and the pictures on this website represent exactly what you will find - beautifully appointed, very clean, and comfortable surroundings. Hotel rooms just don't compare to what you will find here. A car is not needed because within walking distance of this property are many restaurants, bars, historical sites, and sunset viewing locations including the very popular Mallory Square. If bike riding, fishing, water sports, or day and sunset cruises are on your itinerary, you will find many options within walking distance as well. While Fort Zachery Taylor Park is a short distance away and has a lot to offer, it can be a bit of a walk to the beach area. It was a pleasure working with Rosemary, and staying here again is on our bucket list!
We had driven through the Keys from Ft Lauderdale and arrived just at dusk. The care taken to make their home welcoming to us upon arrival was noticeable from the start, with the lights warmly lit as we opened the gorgeous French door. This home is so tastefully done and in an exquisite neighborhood, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Everything worth seeing is within walking distance. Thank you for lending us your beautiful home for the week. We plan to return often.
We're just home from our second visit to The Island Queen and it definitely won't be our last. For both location and accommodations you won't find a better place to stay in Key West. It's beautiful. In fact, we had our wedding ceremony in the garden here during our most recent visit! Rosemary is so great to work with and takes such great care of this home. No detail is overlooked. It's within easy walking distance of Duval Street, Mallory Square and Key West Bight where the Conch Republic is located. We spent each afternoon by the pool enjoying the amazing April weather before heading to Duval for dinner and music each evening. You will be so glad you decided to stay here!
This is our second time spending a week at Island Queen, and it was as wonderful this time as the last. The town home is beautifully decorated, and the layout with two separate and private bed/bath suites is perfect for two couples. The owners take great care to make sure your stay is delightful--upscale furnishings, premium linens, all the necessary kitchen utensils, beautiful bathrooms, outdoor grill and lovely private garden area. The location can't be beat--we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go-- from Duval for dinner and music in the evenings, to Mallory Square for sunsets, to Conch Republic and the harbor area for activities, and of course to the nearby pool which we visited daily. Connie, the property manager, met us upon check-in and took great care of us--she was awesome! If you are planning a trip to Key West, I highly recommend the Island Queen. As I said, we've been twice now and have every intention of going back again--you can't go wrong staying here!

This was our third stay at this remarkabe townhouse in one of the best locations in Key West. Many amenities are provided, including a well equipped kitchen with all needed appliances & utensils. Large washer, dryer are in the laundry room. Owners have also provided beach chairs, beach towels & bar-b-que grill with outside seating in their private courtyard.
