With a busy job and two children under 5, I hardly ever take the time to write reviews, but I am compelled to share our amazing experience.

Ocean House is a paradise place in ever single way. The landscaping is gorgeous and the pool....just what we needed. Perfect for couples that likes privacy and romantic time alone. The staff is very welcoming, attentive and pleasant. It's more than 5 stars.

When we first arrived at Ocean House, we thought this must be what heaven is like. Amazing service, privacy, seclusion, lush grounds, view of the ocean, and breakfast delivered to your door--just tell them what time and they'll be there. We had a nicely decorated 2nd floor room and balcony with a private staircase that takes you to the pool... More

We are noted for our privacy, seclusion and lush grounds situated on the ocean side of the Keys. Having a car is definitely an advantage in all of the Keys although there are fine restaurants and gift shops for browsing within walking distance of Ocean House, many guests prefer the mobility a car offers. Especially if you are looking for... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in May for our anniversary. Great Location and grounds. Pool is clean with nice amenities. Small sandy beach area. Kayaks and bicycles available most of the time.

We are a small resort, only 8 suites, which affords the privacy and relaxing atmosphere our guests at Ocean House experience. Our crew at Ocean House does a great job of providing excellent service as they really enjoy pampering our guests. I sure wish I could provide more of a menu for breakfast. Hopefully, in the future that will be... More

I recently spent a long weekend at Ocean House with my girlfriends. It was an all-around wonderful experience. The staff is exceptional. They are all very kind, knowledgable, helpful, and professional. The property is exquisite, like a meticulously cared for botanic garden. They even label the gorgeous tropical plants so you know exactly what you're admiring. The pool is kept... More

Getting away from the hustle and bustle is what Ocean House is all about. Being an adult only resort, 16 years or older, eliminates the cannon balls into the pool and the cries of little voices shouting Marco Polo! We strive to provide all the necessary essentials like the kayaks, bicycles and snorkeling gear that you mentioned, for our guests... More
