The property was 20 mins. on foot to the most popular areas of town, so it was quiet and parking was readily available in the local streets.

Quality, Quaint & Quiet

Love it , we always come back

We had a great stay here. The bed was very comfortable. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to see and do. Duvall St is about a mile away.

Check in was really easy and got an upgrade which was excellent. The cottage was clean and spacious with great amenities. Good breakfast and awesome host!

Ww had a wonderful time in the place.. it feels like home with attention to the little details. We loved it!!!!

Friendly staff, early check-in, small but clean and comfortable room. Pros: About a mile to walk to the main attraction areas of Key West. Small splash pool in a quaint garden setting with lovely outdoor dining space. Fruit, yogurt, and packaged breakfast items. Price was competitive given the season. Cons: I’m 5’ 5” and the shower bumped my head, probably tough for a tall person to navigate. I’m also an early riser and coffee isn’t available until 8:30 a.m., gas station .2 miles away got the job done). I understand that on vacation most aren’t up super early, so maybe a small pot or two guests can check-out for in room use would be a good compromise? Overall enjoyed the stay, property and location. Would stay again.

Nice stay.

A lot of places are claiming to have breakfast, this place still does, everything's individually wrapped, and lots of options.

Very nice stay overall , as others have said parking is a minimum so good luck finding a spot relatively close . Room was small but nice . Staff was nice . We got there after hours but made it easy to check in. Overall pleased with our stay!

Jonathan and the crew were absolutely amazing nice quiet area clean rooms great staff will be coming back again soon highly recommend

Great location, manicured grounds, home away from home feel. Beautiful garden with a pool. Would love to come back

It was very quaint and intimate. The breakfast was nice and the coffee was always hot and full. Our room was right by the pool and it was quiet and peaceful.

Very nice property. Close to restaurants and entertainment! Would stay thete again!

It was perfect , we love it , I’ll come back for sure!
