We rented the family reunion for a 50th birthday celebration with family and friends flying in from all over the country. It worked out great! We had 22 people and each person had a bed to sleep in, even though some were only twin beds. We found that there was enough room in the large house for everyone to sit and visit or watch the Super Bowl. People really loved the feel of the cottage and most would have chosen to stay in that for the week.
While we were very happy with this location for a large group, there is some honest feedback I need to provide. The large house is older and could probably use a bit of updating. We stayed in the upstairs large room and could hear everything that happened on the street. Trash pickups, people's conversations, cars driving by, palm fronds scratching along the windows in the breeze. There is no way you'd be able to sleep in on vacation in most of this compound since it's so close to the street. I think if the windows were upgraded, it would help a lot in minimizing that outside noise.
The rental company was great to deal with and allowed me to have some birthday items shipped to their office early and were available for questions as needed.
While this compound was pricey, I'd highly recommend it for large groups who all want to stay together. Our family and friends seemed pretty pleased with their accommodations.
Planned well in advance as Key West can be hit or miss with getting the place you want. The garden and pool mesh great for the outside wedding. For me the pool house is the best. The old feel of the homes come out of all of the houses.
One townhouse is being remodeled so be sure to ask about the 22 beds as we ended up with 19. We made it work but it would have been nice to know up front (I know read the fine print). Great week, Great wedding venue.
