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!

The room is very clean. The property is right in the center of Key West and is convenient to go anywhere in the island.

Such a quaint stay. Far enough from the rowdiness of downtown, but close enough for walking distance. The room was impeccably clean.

The facility was quiet, clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone. I will be staying here on my next trip to the keys.

great place overall! nice little spot felt very secure and private. the staff was friendly and the interior exceeded our expectations. was perfect size for the wife and i.

So a picture is not always worth a 1,000 words. The rooms look larger on in the images than they actually are. I have wide shoulders and could not stand in front of the sink as the width between the wall and towel bar was not wide enough. The shower also is not very large so do not drop the soap.

Awesome little spot!! Price was nice and room was nice! They have options for big rooms or little "just need to catch some zzz's" rooms that will get the job done. Will definitely consider for a follow-up Key West visit!!

Great location to walk everywhere. Very well taken care of property. We had a great 5 night stay. A few things to improve/change to make it even better: Poor breakfast - with so many bakeries just a few blocks away would be nice to have fresh selections. Door to the bathroom - would help to have solid door for some sense of privacy. Everything else was just great - thank you for having us.

pool is really small but rooms were very nice and staff was accommodating

Staff was very friendly. The room was simple but fine for our needs.

The room was very nice and clean. The area was safe and quiet. Barby checked us in and was extremely helpful with providing us a map and tons of information and recommendations. She goes above and beyond to make the guests feel at home.
