Perfect tropical family oasis!
We booked family reunion for my dad’s whole family for my wedding weekend, and it was incredible! The houses are so cute, clean and perfectly decorated, key west style. The pool area is leafy but very clean and comfortable. This is the perfect place for families with kids!
First and foremost - congratulations on your wedding! :)
We are thrilled that you chose Family Reunion for such special occasion!
It is great to hear that you enjoyed the property and found it clean and comfortable!
We hope you will make this an annual trip to celebrate this special day and that we will have the pleasure to host you again! :)
Our family reunion was fantastic, but...
Our family reunion was terrific- there were 16 of us- 8 adults and 8 children ranging in age from 1-7. Our family has few chances to be all together so that part of our trip was terrific. We wanted a place where our 3 children and their spouses could be together after they put their kids to bed and this compound was great for that- plenty of beds and the buildings were close enough together that all baby monitors worked from anywhere on the property.The property itself had some problems.
The description was "shabby chic"- but I would say much more shabby than chic. The small apartment attached to the main house had a wooden plank entry that was totally rotten. The main house was not well appointed when it came to kitchen tools. There was not 1 straight-edge knife in the place for carving nor were there any steak knives (none of the serrated knives available were sharp) so we ended up buying them for the house. There were signs for "house rules" everywhere- "take off all make-up before using any linens or you will be charged for any stains" (why not just buy white bleachable towels as we did when we rented our family property in New York and quit worrying?), "if not all kitchen utensils are located in original houses you will be charged" (we just ended up using paper plates and cups to avoid any misplacement), "do not sit on any of the furniture in wet bathing suits" etc. etc. Some of the signs were understandable such as "nothing but toilet paper in the comodes as the septic system couldn't handle it" made sense as did the "no diving" sign at the pool- however the sign saying no swimming if sick or having diarrhea was just plain gross.
There were no towel racks in any of the bathroom. The closet in the master bedroom was so full of stuff it was hard to hang our clothes, two chairs were chained (CHAINED?) to one of the condos (insulting- just remove them if you are worried about theft!) One toilet would not stop running and when checked we found the flapper was held together with a twist tie. We had one rainy day and water somehow came in and soaked all the bedding on one bed and destroyed a baby monitor. When pulling the bed out to remake it, we found a plug with no plug plate so all the wires were exposed.
One of the buildings had been remodeled so that was very nice, but the rest of the buildings could use work! Vacation Homes of Key West was fantastic. They immediately fixed or replaced any uncorking thing when we called- They are great!
