We had an amazingly exceptional 3 night stay at the Ocean House .The property is picture perfect and so impeccably maintained, the landscaping is truly outstanding and what really made the property unique and extra lovely. The swimming pool was perfectly warm and the fire pit was very nice in the evening. The room we stayed in was Salt Water... More

Just returned from two nights at the Ocean House and I can't wait to go back! A true paradise found. From the moment you pull up and open your car door, you are treated like royalty. Tom, Todd, Kayla and all the staff were fantastic and took great care of us. The property itself is gorgeous with just about every... More

A relaxing beach vacation is just what we strive to provide for our guests. At Ocean House we feel like our guests should not want for anything, especially not be nickeled and dimed to death over amenities. The cabanas are a favorite spot for many of our guests, we only wish we had room for more. The fire pit in... More

A great spot for a getaway! Staff is exceptional-friendly and welcoming. Beautiful grounds and pool. Quiet and intimate hotel. We went kayaking and bike riding and sat in the saltwater pool sipping tall, frozen drinks. Couldn't be better!

A quiet and intimate getaway spot is what Ocean House is all about! With just enough amenities on the property, like the bicycles and kayaks that you enjoyed, they give a little exercise in between enjoying our frozen drink specialties poolside. We hope to see you back soon. More

We loved our stay at the Ocean House. The lush grounds & the Purple Isle room were beautiful and elegant. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly especially Tom, Ellen and Lorelei. We looked forward to our breakfast each morning on our veranda and enjoyed having our lunch catered in a number of times from local area restaurants. We... More

We recently returned from the best-ever hotel stay at Ocean House. There aren't enough accolades I can bestow on the beauty and serenity of the grounds and the genuine warmth and attentiveness from the entire staff. A multitude of adjectives comes to mind – all of them in the superlative. If you can avail yourself of a stay here, please... More

Incredible place and peaceful place. Very private and nice. We found the Eden garden .. For sure it's here.. We recommend this place. Enjoy having diner or breakfast next to the ocean on the beach landscape. The pool is also very well situated and around green plants welcome you

This small hotel is a hidden gem that we will certainly visit next time we are in Islamorada. My husband and I were greeted immediately after exiting our car in the parking lot by a friendly staff member who informed us that our vacation started at that moment and someone would be coming to carry our bags to the room....

At Ocean House we really like to spoil our guests. After all, you are the ones on vacation or in your case just a one night stay celebrating your anniversary. We sure hope you will be back when you can spend more time relaxing at our small boutique resort that is tucked away in Islamorada. Thank you very much for... More

After a long, long NY winter, my husband and I were able to plan a mid-March get away and we couldn't have found a more perfect spot! Thank you trip advisor!

Just returned from a brief but wonderful visit to Islamorada. Ocean House received so many great reviews that we were afraid we would be disappointed. We were not. Hidden away off the main road it has the most spectacular landscaping. Literally every inch has been meticulously thought out. Gorgeous pool, small but pretty beach. We used the luxurious cabanas (equipped... More

Very glad to hear that you will return to Ocean House and that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us! The Coral Reef suite which I consider the best room of our eight suites due to its location, size and view of the grounds and the ocean, is also one of four with a kitchenette. The kitchenette rooms allow guests... More
