Review of Ecco Domani - At Home in Key West

Back in June of this year we stayed in Key West in a lovely house called Ecco Domani.  We rented through At Home in Key West who we found great to deal with.

Here is my review on tripadvisor about it:
“Exceeded our expectations”

We loved this house!
Super location - just one block off Duval - and also near to the beach; we went to the Southernmost beach a lot.
We thought that the house is bigger then it looks in the photographs. We were expecting a small little conch cottage whereas we got a nice size 3 storey house. The bedrooms in particular were very roomy and of course the main bathroom with the jacuzzi bath, the doublesize waterfall shower (with sit down area) and double vanity area was fabulous.
It had all the expected amenities and we made particular good use of the ice machine for cocktails by the pool :-)
Decor is modern. Very nice bed linen and lots of towels were provided.
The pool area was a little small (but no smaller then we expected from the photographs). Was not great for sunbathing as the sun only hits in one spot but as I mentioned earlier we went to the beach a lot.
All in all a great house.

Also must mention the good service from At Home in Key West when booking. I found the Live Chat service really useful. We had no need to contact them during our stay (no issues with house etc) so cannot comment on service during our stay.

We ate at out the majority of the time and aside from the fish we caught (we went fishing with Captain John's Greyhound V) we never cooked at home.
Our favourite places are A&B lobster house/Alonzos, Santiagos Bodega and Firefly.

Coach and Banana Republic on Duval are probably the only two good stores - unless you are only looking for tee-shirts!!!!
Red Gallery near Flagler Station museum is good for quirky gifts.

Recommendations things to do:
Custom House Museum
Lighthouse tour
Little White House
Hemingway House
Fishing with Captain John's Greyhound V is always good
