We pulled up to the bed and breakfast and we were so excited because it was beautiful. The place was clean welcoming and a great buy to be so close to everything in key west but yet far enough away from everything loud. We had planned a sunset cruise the night we arrived and the location was perfect to walk... More

On the south side of Duval Street, a perfect place to stay. Rent bikes or scooters across the street and explore this great Key . We stayed in the "Honeymoon" cottage in the back, and it was very pleasant. We even had a mascot in an iguana munching on leaves outside near the pool. Very nice breakfast served on the... More

Stayed here with my wife may 2014. It's an absolute gem, it's an old style guest house with plenty of character, and really fits in with the general vibe of key west. The room we had was exactly what we imagined and had hoped for with antique furniture and a four poster bed. The staff couldn't have been more helpful!... More

After spending a night in South Beach Miami and getting ripped off in the process (see other review), we weren't really looking forward to our trip to Key West! From the minute we arrived at Avalon B&B, our humour changed for the better. Our hosts were friendly, room was beautiful and location was ideal. Fab front porch to have breakfast... More

We stayed two nights in July. The staff were very helpful and check in was quick and easy. There was complimentary iced tea and cookies on arrival. Our room was lovely, a four poster with netting. The air con unit was a bit noisy but you soon got used to it. Avalon is within easy walking distance to the shops... More

Because of the many positive reviews here on TripAdvisor and on Booking.com, I chose Avalon B&B for a three night stay for my wife and parents. The location at the quieter end of Duval Street suited us perfectly, and there were a number of cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance of the property. Every single staff member that we... More

We visited in May of 2014, and we were happy we stayed at the Avalon again. If you like a b & b, you will not be disappointed. Our next visit to KW, we will stay @ the Avalon. I saw a review that called the Avalon a "hostel".................I DON'T THINK SO !!! The rooms are tastefully decorated and very... More

Well kept, clean, small B&B in a historical building only a gew steps from Southernmost Point. Very good breakfast. Beautifully furnished large rooms with everything you can wish. Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable beds. We only stayed for 1 night but it is a place where you can spend your whole holidays. Quiet place.

Cozy place to stay. In fact is a house, with all the warm ambiance to make feel like in home. I was there by Christmas, and they had a very nice christmas tree. The room was small but comfortable, very clean and included bath. The front desk girls are very helpfull and kind. They do not have parking on site,... More

We stayed 3 nights in June 2014, family 2 adults and 2 children 11 and 15 years old. We got a very nice room with two rather large queensize bed so the children could share a bed. The aircondition works fine and even if it was located next to the bed it was quiet. It was really nice and clean... More
