Rooms with a View

April 15, 2012

When we first entered the 2nd floor apartment ( via a spiral staircase- heavy luggage is a little tricky.) we were blown away by the view out of every window! ( And so many windows!) It is everything that it claimed to be and more!! We never tired of looking at the ocean, the pier and the activity all around. Holly was so helpful, even offering to pick up a few things for us at the grocery store, as she was going herself. The location was great for us, on the quieter side of the island. But nothing is too far away. We did a lot of walking, as we chose not to rent a car. We took cabs when we didn't want to walk and that worked out just great. We visited Duval Street frequently. We ate out most of the time, but there is an oven, microwave and full size refrigerator. We ordered in pizza one night and our "around the back" location was no problem for our deliveryman. The only unusual thing is arrangement of the bathroom. The toilet area and shower are seperate and there is no bathroom sink, you need to use the kitchen sink. But we were fine with that, and Holly mentioned it ahead of time so it wasn't a surprise to us. Our last day (we spent a week.) we decided to just stay at "home" and enjoy the ocean and pool next door. It was wonderful and relaxing. Holly had a list of things to do and see and restaurants that she recommended. They were outstanding. "Louie's Backyard" restaurant (a stone's tthrow away) was pricey but awesome. We were very happy with our selection of a place to stay in Key West. So much nicer than a hotel, in our opinion. Thanks for sharing your paradise with us Holly and Javier!

The view from the front porch at this studio is even nicer than what the pictures show. You are truly only 10 yards from a beautiful beach. The location is awesome with easy access to Duval Street and Louie's Backyard is less than a block away. Tell Holly that Wayne sent you.

The Best Stay in Key West

My husband and I spent our second honeymoon at Holly's Studio February 14-18, 2011 and I have to give it 2 thumbs up! The location is ideal. True it is on the opposite side of the island from the busiest part of town (meaning Duvall Street nightlife) but that is in part what made it ideal. Because the island is so small nothing is really that far away. So while we could get away from the crowds and noise to relax and enjoy our vacation, when we wanted to - it was easy to get to it as well. We took advantage of the Trolley stop only 2 blocks away and rode it to locations we wanted to visit and then after hours we simple flagged down a taxi and returned home to our serene romantica getaway. Holly was extremely helpful even before we arrived making recommendations of activities we could reserve ahead of time so once we got there all was in place and there was no stress of trying to make plans. We took advantage of the pristine beach and pool right next door one day and had a real pampered experience. The unit itself is very clean and had everything you could need. The kitchen was well equipped so we could make some meals there and then really spurge on a night out if we wanted. The views from every window were breathe taking. The reservation process was painless and I would feel very comfortable booking with Holly again. My only concern, if you call it that, is that I am afraid someone else will beat me to it next time I want to venture back to Key West.

My wife and I, and our dog, enjoyed 3 wonderful weeks at the studio. It's down a sandy lane with a place to park outside the door. It is bordered by a 5 star resort with beach chairs and a heated pool that is accessible for the price of a tip to the towel person. The view of the ocean from the studio is fantastic. It is large for a studio and creatively decorated by the artist owner. It has all essential appliances for a casual stay with resort amenities.

If you are looking for a beautiful getaway with beach activities and TONS of things to do-then this is the place for you! We stayed here over New Year's and had a blast! The house is very cool and everything is a ten minute bike ride away! We must have biked about 6 to 8 hours every day! All flat so not strenuous at all-just fun!Free beach is about a minute ride away unless you want to pay for immediate access.There was so much to see and do here in Key West! So much history!The temperature is mild-even in January-80's!And you don't even have to leave the country to enjoy it!We loved it!Returning every year!

Wow ! What a beautiful place. Holly and Javier are as beautiful as the surroundings. This is a very special place offering the best views and it is very private. It's a home away from home. Scale of 1 to 10 I give it an 11 It is worth it!!!!!! Brenda :-)

Date of Stay: December 10, 2008 Review Submitted: March 29, 2009

We visited Key West in Dec '08 and it was our fist visit. We wanted a beach view; and privacy to rest and relax. The studio apt. was perfect. Holly described it exactly. It had the 180 degrees view; louvred windows open to the breezes. She had stocked up on our favorites for lunch; and had our beverages iced on arrival. The location is perfect, across the lane from "Louies' Backyard" and within walking distance to all the action on Duval St. We did a lot of walking ( by choice) but there are buses, cabs and easy to call if wanted. We enjoyed the beach ( right outside the door ) for several days, and walked around the town for the other couple days. The stairway up the back is not for people who are disabled ( spiral metal stair case) but the studio was very nice; with kitchen and all amenities; shower; bed, etc. We took a cab to and from airport. No problems at all...

My husband and I had an awesome stay at this studio in Key West. It was sublime to open the sliders and hear the ocean all night. To wake to the early morning sky and see the clouds peel away, revealing beautiful sand and water. Duval is an easy walk and/or bike ride. We went all around Key West and felt great coming back to the studio rather than a hotel. Mixing margaritas, reading a book while looking out the window before dinner was much better than hearing other guests in the halls. It felt like we were staying at a friend's house. Everything you needed was there. It was clean and well maintained. This is not an opulent space, the bathroom and shower are small, but big enough to do what you need to do. It is extremely comfortable with a clever use of space. The views are showstopping and you will be surrounded by peace. Spend the money and rent the bikes from the owner, it's better than hassling with the bike vendors. The owner left laminated maps of Key West with recommended restaurants including coffees, good deals, etc. We checked out one of them--an authentic cuban restaurant, and we weren't disappointed. The owner was not onsite at the time we were there, but she checked in with us on our first night to make sure we had everything we needeed. We left a bottle of wine for the next guests, hoping they would do the same before they left and that others after them would pay it forward. You get access to the private beach and pool next door. It was fun to be able to take advantage of these amenitites and the staff were polite and accommodating.

Owner response:
Thank you! From us here in Key West! Your delightful precise commentary, expressed so eloquently - all about “The Crows Nest UP” is truly appreciated and surely stands as a wonderful testament to our future prospective couples; ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Confident Now to close in a final decision on,~~~~~~~~ "The Crows Nest UP" & end their search for the only perfect romantic hideaway with huge oceanviews, privacy, & calm so close to Duval St.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~waves:) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Looking forward to making your vacation more fun & most of all relaxing, enjoy the sun, hear the waves, wear sarongs, and have more happy hours!!!
You know its right!

It has been over a year since our stay at the Southernmost studio in Key West. Nevertheless, the enchantment of our stay there lingers to this day. When you stay there you feel like you are sleeping on the beach - with windows that open on all sides of you you can see an hear the ocean and the breeze blowing through the palm trees. We would spend quite a bit of time in the studio each morning since you could still experience relaxing on the beach while still being in the comforts of the studio. The studio is quaint and unpretentious. The #1 amenity is the view and proximity to the beach and Duval Street. In Key West what more do you need? I unfortunately did not have the opportunity to meet Holly and Javier face-to-face as they were away due to a family emergency. However, they were super-accomodating and made sure that our stay was enjoyable even from afar.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing week long stay in this unique studio. Quiet and clean with everything you need for a wonderful stay. The view is fantastic. Open the windows and sliders for a refreshing ocean breeze night and day. Holly and Javier are warm and welcoming hosts who are nearby if you need them. I recommend renting the bikes for some Key West site seeing, but you can walk to Duval St. and Mallory Square. We had full use of the pool and beach at the resort next door for a reasonable daily fee. The resort staff is very friendly and accommodating. We loved our stay in Key West and when we return, I hope this studio is available for our stay.

We stayed for a week and thought the studio was very spacious and well decorated in island/Caribbean theme, some of the work was done by the owner who is an artist so that made it much more interesting. The views from the living areas were wonderful of the ocean, and we walked everywhere from this location although next time we will take Holly up on using the bikes as the northern part of Duval was too far to walk to and back. Would highly recommend this property.

Owner response: Marsha and Danny,

Holly and her condo are wonderful. We got engaged to be married while staying there and had the perfect setting in the condo and the perfect concierge with Holly. No question or need went unanswered and the location is wonderful, ridiculous and magical. Stay here! (just not when I am going back)

"""Lovely central location with peaceful sleeping conditions - nice waves, sea breeze and comfy bed!"""

"" The location can't be beat! A perfect nights sleep and just blocks away from "The Best of Key West!"""

""" Very pleasant stay. Relaxing and calming - No Worries.

John and Michelle-
Finally a destination that is "one of a kind" Unique!" Crows Nest was delightful in every way- Still not sure Holly actually lives downstairs given the level of privacy :) Loved our too few visits from ChiGi and martini, the only suggestion we could think of was a chicken or two in the yard.... :)
Thanks Much we'll be back!!!!

"" Extremely private stay with Immediate access (FRONT YARD) to the beach. Staff here outstanding
They can be at your service at moment's notice, or leave you as if it's your place! (I prefer the latter)
Stay was so pleasing; I'm booking now a year in advance for Fantasy Fest
Everything very personably nice. Like you are at home on vacation!""

This was written by a broker who came and was shown the unit on 3.6.10 Thank you Camille!!
6;30 am 3.7.10 Hi Jenna,
I am forwarding you 4 e mails of photo's of what i think is one of Key West's finest rentals! This is special on so many levels.
It is both in the heart of Key West and is the Heart of Key West! Having been here near thirty years myself,
I have seen buildings and Hotels built around it, yet this property stays true to what Key West was and always will be, "Unique"

First, The Ocean is literally steps out the door and the Owner's are artists which you will immediately see when you walk inside inside!
I am forwarding these pictures and yet they do not do it justice as standing inside either of these units.

(one up and one garden level) I know this is getting to you late as you are to begin filming today, but i assure you, if you see this property, you will agree that it is perfect for HGTV! Thanks Jenna!

Sincerely, Camille T.
