Their website is terrific, they do a good job of screening prospective tenants, are responsive to our requests and, it would seem, to those of the tenants judging from the repeats. We have recommended VHKW to our friends.” - Denny Ellerman & Elena Castedo
- "I’ve had the pleasure of working with VHKW for the last three years and they have been nothing short of wonderful. My property is on an island and therefore presents unique and challenging management issues. Yet, the team at VHKW is extremely attentive and always willing to make sure, that any and all issues are taken care of, and that the home is well maintained. In addition, they have a successful track record of rentals. The entire team is very professional, with a real commitment to caring and service. I am grateful to be able to entrust my home and the rentals to the great group of people at VHKW." - Maria Bradley
- "I have been very pleased with the service that VHKW has provided for us and our vacation rental home in Key West. They have been very successful in keeping our home rented throughout the year. My rental income doubled once I signed on with their rental service in 2008. The book keeping is first rate and the monthly statements and checks arrive on time every month. The maid and service teams are excellent and very helpful in keeping our home looking good, clean, and in good condition. The office staff are friendly and very efficient in handling everyday business and in dealing with any problems that may arise. I highly recommend Vacation Homes of Key West for your rental property management." - John Gallup

We were doing ‘OK’ with another local company previously, but saw an immediate increase in bookings and a constant increase in our bottom line for years, after we made the change. We can depend on the great staff to handle anything that arises from minor tenant problems to dealing professionally with the rare inconsiderate raucous guest. I have no reservations in strongly recommending VHKW to my friends and colleagues. The management and staff do an outstanding job for us." - Bill Goldner
