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. Small hotel so really felt private. Great service. We stayed on the lower level, ocean room. Room needs some updating and we could hear the people above... More

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

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enter a private, lush, adult resort, come to Ocean House in Islamorada, FL. We were celebrating our 37th Wedding Anniversary and this was the PERFECT place!! There are only 8 units, 4 larger units on the top floor and 4 smaller units on the bottom... 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

We were looking for a quick weekend getaway and spent two wonderful days at Ocean House, which I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a secluded tropical getaway. With only 8 rooms, the property is incredibly exclusive and private. Upon arrival we were greeted by the incredible staff, who offered complimentary soft drinks, beer, wine and water. They gave...

We had a great, relaxing stay at the Ocean House. Their are only 8 rooms so it feels like you almost have your own private pool, ocean side beach chairs, fire pit, garden, and jacuzzi. But, there's also someone that will bring you refreshments.

Relaxation is what Ocean House is all about and we are pleased that we met your need for a relaxing stay. Our small size attributes to the fact that our guests feel like they have a private escape on ocean front property. Our concierge services allow our guests to be waited on, served cool refreshing beverages poolside, have a lunch... More

We received a great reception from Todd and Tom with complementary drinks. The grounds are immaculate especially with the numerous Silver Palm trees. Great places to eat are within a mile or two. The salt water pool and the faux beach are welcome additions to the hotel. My only qualm is that I am a non smoker easily irritated by... More

Thank you for reviewing your stay at Ocean House. Most of our guests are very sensitive as far as smoking near other guests. We apologize for the people who may not have shown the same discretion. Otherwise, we hope your stay with us has left you with fond memories and we certainly look forward to seeing you again. More

A relaxing beach vacation is just what we strive to provide for our guests.
