When we arrived at L'Habitation we were greeted by Helen who was extremely helpful and personable. At first we didn't know where to park to unload our stuff, but she informed us that there was a specific spot for unloading. This made things a lot easier because parking is not onsite. There is free parking about a block away and... More

My first time in US during the Independence day! it was great to spend some days in Key West and being a guest in l'Habitation. I trusted the reviews in Trip Advisor but I have to say that my first choice was in that direction! Yes, there are several guest houses in key West and many of them look even... More

My husband and I spent a couple of nights here. Our room was tucked in the back and shared a deck with another room. It was perfect for us. It was quiet, clean and comfortable. The bathroom could use a bit of updating, but not a deal breaker. For breakfast they served amazing glazed donuts from the shop next door.... More

We stayed two nights a L'Habitation in April, 2014. A nicely appointed, clean room, less than a block from the heart of Duval Street. It's only a few steps from Tropic Cinema (also highly recommended). Breakfast (fruit, delicious pastries) was served in the second-floor canopied porch. We didn't see much of the staff, but they were there when we needed... More

The location of this place can't be beat. Neither can the friendliness of the owner. Our room was very small and not cheap, but it's Key West. The room was clean but smelled a little musty. Breakfast is simple, French style. There are by far not enough tables and chairs so you have to eat it standing.

From the initial greeting from Stu until the check-out we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at L'Habitation in March, 2014. We stayed in room 15 which is perfect if traveling with friends, up to 4 would be comfortably accommodated. The house is beautiful and the location is perfect. Just steps from Duval to the right of the... More

We stayed at L'Habitation from March 31, 2014 to April 4, 2014. The location was excellent, on Eaton Street between Duval and Whitehead. The gentleman who checked us in, was very nice and helpful. The continental breakfast on veranda, was excellent. Especially the chocolate croissants and the donuts. It seems all the issues we had were housekeeping related. The toilet... More

We stayed at L'Habitation for 7 days in mid March, and it was our 5th year in a row staying here! Stewart is the BEST at recommending local spots for happy hour or sunset sails or whatever you have in mind. Excellent location for anything of interest in Key West. The location is quiet because it is a block off... More

We planned a side trip for a couple of days to the Keys as part of our annual winter stay in Florida. We wanted to stay near the heart of Duval for the convenience, but far enough away that we wouldn't hear the noise. L'Habitation Guest House was perfect for our needs - only 1/2 block from Duval, but Eaton... More
