Another accidental find. Great location. One street off of Duval. Nice little pool. Nice rooms. Quiet. Breakfast included. Make sure you rent bikes for a couple of days. We had a blast here. Try to get an upstairs room. Nice seats in balcony

A recent trip to Key West for a family birthday, my sister and I stayed at Heron House Sept 20-24, 2014. We knew it was a couples place and that didn't bother us at all. Stepping into the Heron House is an Oasis every time. I swear the temperature was even cooler and easier in the gardens. We had a... More

From the moment we walked through the gate.....it was just beautiful!! The pictures don't do it justice. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. The rooms were clean (we rented two), nice size accommodations, the linens and towels were changed regularly, breakfast had a great variety, the grounds were quiet and the others guests were very...

Loved the quaint fashion of the Heron House. We stayed in a single bedroom room that was just right for two people. The staff was extremely friendly and informative. Breakfast was awesome and the other guests were friendly and quiet during our stay on New Year's Eve weekend. Within easy walking distance of everything and great atmosphere. Looking forward to...

Sorry to give it two. The place relays is gorgeous and quiet in a great location. But it's unacceptable that we stayed in one of their biggest rooms (top floor with balcony) and at 3am at night I turn on the light to go to the bathroom and there are cockroaches on the ceiling and walls. One was at the... More

This bed and breakfast is in need of a lot of repair. Our room had plates covering electrical sockets that were missing, paint chipping everywhere. We stayed in rm 1 where you have to battle the door just to get it open. One light had a mixture of a regular light bulb and a candle-flame shaped bulb in the other... More

The Heron House was a wonderful choice for our getaway. Behind the wooden gates is an oasis of tranquility. The lush foliage was breathtaking, swaying in the wind. We spent hours on our balcony, taking in the KW atmosphere of cool breezes and watching the traffic go by. It is an ideal location, in the heart of old town KW.... More
