My wife and I REALLY like this place!!! We stayed here for 8 nights, the last of March, first of April, 2014. This was our first time here, choosing OBD after we found our regular B&B was booked(Marrero’s). Making a reservation was easy, and we had asked for early check-in, if possible, since our plane would arrive well before the... More

Great location. DJ was super friendly. I called to make the reservation and got him on the phone. After making the decision on what room I wanted,(the pool balcony king room) he said you do realize our pool is clothing optional? I said they won't mind if we have suits on will they? He just laughed. We did go to... More

There are 7 of us who stay here every year. DJ and Kay are the friendliest people, they make your visit to Key West even better by helping you find hidden gems in restaurants and bars on the island. We are going to Key West twice this year and there was no question where we are staying !!

What a fantastic place to stay! We stayed in Kay's Cottage and it was everything we wanted and needed! We arrived late on Thursday night and was prepared for the late check in by the friendly office staff. It was a breeze getting our key and getting settled in. There was a spot right in front of our cottage that... More

It's nothing fancy but it's perfect Key West style if you're looking to live like a local. Pool is warm and heated. Nekkid old people are a common site at the pool! Location could not be any better. Bed was comfy, shower was hot and the price is always right. Second time staying here. Will be back.

Just returned from staying for 5 nights at Olivia by Duval in the Balcony room. It was clean and decorated perfectly. The pool is very clean and the seating by the pool is very accommodating. We loved everything about this place except that they allow smoking by the pool and it drifted up into our room every time someone lit... More

We visited OBD for 6 days. We stayed in the Conch Republic Suite, our friends stayed in the Orange Blossom Suite, Pool house Suite and the Pool house front room. We had a wonderful stay from the moment we stepped into the office to meet DJ (who offered us a cold beer on a hot day....along with maps & coupons)... More

My fiance and I had the best time! It was like having our own private resort. The weather was perfect...the pool was right outside our room and was beautiful. With the tall fence and trees surrounding we had all the privacy we desired. No children running around doing cannonballs while we tried to relax in the sun. Our room was... More

We stayed in a cottage at the "clothing optional" pool area. We had a beautiful cottage. The walls were "dade pine" which had been painted over several times. Someone, perhaps the owners, had sanded them so they were a variety of beach colors with the pine exposed in areas. It was an artwork in itself. We sat on the front... More

Our room was very clean. The kitchen was convenient for a quick breakfast and the refrigerator made keeping drinks handy without hassling with a cooler. The heated, clothing-optional pool was very relaxing. We met other guests and enjoyed spending time with them in Key West. The staff was very polite and accommodating. The $10 parking pass was convenient but if... More
