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

I have to say that everything was perfect from start to finish. Small place and the service was impeccable. No kids so it was quiet. The views from the pool and room(top floor) were incredible.
