We came here for a short two-day trip to celebrate our Anniversary. After looking at the many resorts we chose Ocean House over the Cheeca Lodge and The Moorings Village and Spa and we are glad we did! Our arrival was greeted by Diane and Ryan. Since the property is not gated they keep a watchful but not obtrusive eye... More

We found this place on line, booked early without really knowing if it was as good as it sounded. There are so many things to love about this place -- adults only, beaufitful views, spacious room, fabulous bed, full-sized refrigerator, an unbelievably attentive staff, delicious coffee, easy access to restaurants but still SO quiet and peaceful.

We recently stayed at Ocean House for three nights on a trip through the Keys. As noted in other reviews, we were graciously greeted by Todd and given a nice tour of the property while enjoying a glass of wine. The property is very clean and well maintained. Our room was well appointed and comfortable. Each day of our stay... More

We are extremely pleased that you found us and enjoyed your stay. We hope your next trip to the Middle Keys will include Ocean House. Also, thank you for your comment regarding introductions. It's a fine line staff straddles as far as engaging with guests. Some guests prefer minimal interaction, while others, including yourself, are more interested engaging with staff... More

This small boutique eight room guest house is a gem. The lushly landscaped property gives a sense of seclusion in the middle of the Keys. The level of service is attentive without hovering and can be increased or decreased to your needs. The complimentary bicycles are a good means of daylight transportation to the rest of Islamorada restaurants and shops.... More

The room was a disappointment, considering that this a very expensive, high end boutique hotel. For the price, we expected a suite, not a single room with poor lighting. Also, the toilet and the bathroom sink were in separate rooms, which I find annoying and inconvenient. On the other hand, there were some positives. The continental breakfast delivered to the...

Very sorry to hear you were disappointed with our Purple Isle accommodations. Purple Isle is our handicap suite, hence, the sink being outside of the shower room to accommodate a wheel chair. If a different room were available we would have been happy to move you. I wish I would have known. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed... More

We stayed in the Dolphin room on the ground floor with a comfy king bed and kitchen. Everything was clean. The grounds are lush and well kept. Staff was friendly and attentive. A peaceful retreat from our busy lives. No children.

We stayed at Ocean House recently for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We could not have been happier with the property and with our stay. We ran into many road blocks on our trip... flight delay, horrible traffic, bad weather.... but despite all of that we had a wonderful trip, and much of that was thanks to this beautiful property!...

The Ocean House is a wonderful property ideally situated on the water in beautiful Islamorada--about two hours driving from Fort Lauderdale. The property is very well maintained, with tons of lush greenery and water views.

Ocean House is set in its own little Oasis. The gardens, pool, hot tub, beach are just wonderful. Laying in the hammock stretched between coconut trees, or by the fire pit gazing at the stars in the evening, help make this place the idyllic spot to unwind and share the experience with a loved one.

I don't have enough stars! We just got back from The Ocean House for three nights/four days. I can't think of ANYTHING negative to say.
