Key West is sometimes referred to as 'the last resort', as it's located at the end of the Overseas Highway (US Route 1), and is a tropical idyll of unique proportions being surrounded by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico on one side, and the wildly fast-running Gulf Stream heading out into the Atlantic, on the other side....

I have been a regular guest at Island House since 2005. As a busy gay executive, I always enjoy the lush tropical feel of the place. However, Key West is changing, as the massive cruise ships now regularly invade the quaint village and overflow it with herds of boisterous breeders. As for Island House, it is under new ownership and... More

The Island House is such a fantastic place for an all-male guest house experience in Key West! The staff there (including the General Manager) go out of their way to ensure your visit there is awesome & beyond your expectations. In fact I saw this one particularly outgoing person buzzing around making every effort to mingle with almost everyone at... More

I have visited this busy guest house on many occasions. The Staff are always exceptionally accommodating especially at the Front Desk. My most recent trip was somewhat different as the atmosphere among the employees seemed more stressed than in previous visits, and since we interact with the Staff a great deal, this was an important issue. Despite that, the level... More

Stayed at the Island House resort this spring for the first time. Found a friendly, laid-back atmosphere with lots of excitement at night for those seeking that. Price for small room with shared bath seemed high, but good value when you factor in free drinks for happy hour and other great perks. The shared bath was nice, clean and convenient... More

Unique & outstanding. The kitchen is open 24 hours a day with a varied menu selection. The rooms were spotless & extremely comfortable. This was our first trip to Key... More
