My wife and I were looking for a quiet getaway and Ocean House was exactly that. We rarely encountered other guests, but when we did the grounds provided the option of privacy or socialize over a tropical drink. The Dolphin room was great. I would recommend to anyone wanting the feeling of seclusion.

The place is in a wonderful garden, the staff couldn't be more helpful and discrete. You can use the pool, take a kayak, go swimming, go biking or just lay in one of the 2 cabanas. Everything is just perfect. Breakfast is simple but good, you can chose an egg or a yogurt then you will have a muffin or... More

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 are a small resort, only 8 suites, which affords the privacy and relaxing atmosphere our guests at Ocean House experience.
