It was magical, the whole weekend. The bungalow was perfect for 5 of us. The views were amazing and so were the people. My 2 year old an 7 year old were completely entertained by the nature around. So many places were walking distance. They were accommodating when the bathroom broke and couldn’t find a plumber, we got a room key to another place. So kind.

We stayed just 2 nights but Olga and her staff were wonderful. Extremely helpful and accommodating. Room was spotless even if just a bit dated. Use of kayaks and paddleboards was great. It was off the main road but was extremely quiet. We had a relaxing trip and would definitely stay here again.

Very relaxing and beautiful. We wish we could have stayed longer.

Really enjoyed our visit. Only thing we disliked was we didn’t have time to stay longer.

Nice relaxing on beach. Accommodating

Loved the beach area with water toys available. Pool was perfect for cooling off. Room was spacious and clean. Beds are comfy! My only suggestion is to have more counter space and hooks in the bathroom. Maybe shelves next to the sink and hooks that hang over the door? Thanks for a wonderful place to stay!

This is a sweet place with a retro feel which makes is quite nice and relaxing. Unfortunately, it looks like it is poorly manage: as soon as we arrived we brought to our host's attention that our bathroom was draining very, very slowly. She took notice, and told us that the sick was going to be fixed the next day. Nobody came, and, in fact, the sink stopped working altogether the day after we checked in. We spoke with the management at least two more time about that, and the only answer we got was that "the maintenance people were nowhere to be seen" -- pretty lousy justification. We were offer no compensation for the inconvenient. As a side note -- but this is common to most of the hotels on the Keys -- our room was a few yards from the road and was extremely loud.

I would reccomend

The property is really unique, it’s an old motel that has been renovated. The outdoor area is really nice equip with hammocks between palm trees. The room could have been cleaner & our room was a little noisy from the road traffic. There are also feral cats around the property that kept us up all night making noise, but you can’t really do anything about that. Overall it was a good place to stay for the night no major problems.

It is good for one night stay. It has not beach access. Water runs barely.

Quaint and relaxing. Nice short getaway. Just what we were looking for.

Very friendly, felt luxurious, has a wonderful fragrance, felt like a resort.

Very nice and right on the water. It has a tropical island vibe. You can snorkel right off the property. Lots of different species of fish. It is on the gulf side of the key. Nice pool with no posted hours so we could hang out there until late in the evening.

Room and property were exactly as pictured. Staff was helpful and very friendly. Use of bicycles and kayaks were offered. Located close to a couple good restaurants. Would definitely stay again.

I loved that it was right on the water and how close it was to things to do. There is a brewery right across tbe street that was amazing, as well as many other restaurants. My only complaint, and it wasn't a huge deal just an inconvenience, was i didn't really like the mattress.

Such a charming, relaxing atmosphere!

Definitely "old school" but it was nice, quiet and good location.

It was clean and very nice. Staff was helpful. I really have no complaints about this place!

Amazing location - swimming/ kayaking/ biking right from the hotel. The rooms are spread across small buildings, and you will be lucky if you get one away from the highway and next to the water.
