Coming from Europe, and with this my fist visit to a gay resort, I did not know what to expect at Island House. I was overwhelmed. It was more than a holiday, it was a totally new experience for me. Firstly the property is in a very attractive part of Old Town Key West, about ten minutes walk from Duval,... More

I traveled to the Island House with my partner after visitng there several times in the past 3 years. He enjoyed himself as much as I did (for his first time). The staff is always very attentive and there for whatever you needs may be. The pool and cafe area is beautiful and it's great to be able to relax... More

My first stay at this guesthouse in key west. I usually stay at one closer to Duval street. The staff were very friendly just from the moment I called about reservations. I had a smaller room w/private bath (110). It was just the right size for a single traveler. The bar and restaurant were very nice. I haven't seen that... More

The hotel was a great surprise from the moment I entered - beautifully decorated, really friendly staff & lots of fun. It was my first time, so didn't know anyone, but with a great crowd there I was never lonely. The Island House team really know how to make you feel at home, very friendly, and loads of information about... More

Overall the trip was very good. The staff is wonderful and go above and beyond to make your stay relaxing. The overall crowd was what I expected but not what I hoped for. Do not be fooled by the models on the Website. Regardless of the crowd, we had a great time and will go back. My main complaint is... More

We love, love, LOVE the Island House! The amenities are fantastic! The staff is like a second family everytime we go. It is farther off Duval than some of the others, which is one of the things we love about it. Very secure and very private setting. The bar and restaurant give you reason to never leave the property.

THE hot spot of gay travel in the U.S., period. There's no end to the praise I have for this hotel, its wonderful food, its courteous and well-prepared staff, the on-site entertainment options, the amenities, the great location, and most of the all, the excellent, clean, and tasteful rooms where sleep is always possible. I've always felt so refreshed after... More

I have been wanting to write a comment here for SUCH a long time..but never gotten around to it. It was a last minute plan last December in 2009, when I was visiting Orlando and decided to stay in Miami. When people encouraged me to visit Key West during that weekend which happened to be nude weekend, I was curious... More
