We spent an excellent 4 days at Ocean House. The gardens are well cared for, the amenities understated but available, the staff friendly. Breakfast on the beach is delightful. The one thing I would wish for is a better breakfast -- more egg variety (over-hard-boiled gets old fast), coffee less harsh (stay away from Starbucks carbonized), better bread, maybe some... More

Delighted to hear that your 4 day stay at Ocean House was “excellent”! We do offer an alternative for your source of protein in the morning but if you are not a yogurt fan, the other choice is the hard-boiled egg. Unfortunately our kitchen is quite small and there are limits as to what we can serve. Sorry you were... More

We stayed for one night at the beautiful Ocean House mid-week last week. We hadn't made reservations anywhere and wanted to spend a night somewhere peaceful and beautiful in the Mid Keys on our way North from Key West to fly out of Fort Lauderdale. We called last minute and were extremely lucky to land upon this little gem. We... More

We recently returned from a 9 day stay at Ocean House and we were extremely pleased with the accommodations, the grounds, the pool, the beach as well as the staff.

This is the best place we have ever stayed. The service is wondeful and since its a small hotel, it's quiet and never crowded, which is what we wanted for our anniversary trip. We were greeted at our car when we drove in and bags taken directly to our suite. The rooms are big and comfortable with full kitchens, freshly... More

My husband and I spent three days at Ocean House in early January. The property was beautiful and impeccably maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful and full of spot on recommendations for where to go on the key. We loved the kayaks, bikes, and sitting on the beach or in the tiki huts and having breakfast served wherever we... More
