Just stayed there five days last week. Loved the hotel grounds so much we didn't want to leave for anything. The staff actually went to two local restaurants and picked up carryout, brought it back to the hotel, plated it and delivered it on trays to our table on the beach!!!!!! While we were there a couple from New York... More

Our catering service is enjoyed by so many of our guests, very pleased that you took advantage! Once you arrive at Ocean House, you really don’t need to leave (and deal with traffic) as we will make sure you are not lacking anything you desire. Traffic here, especially due to the current dual construction for widening US 1 and installation... More

We arrived at Ocean House after a 4 hour drive from Orlando and on arrival in the car park we were greeted and made to feel relaxed and at home straight away!

My husband and I just got home from our second stay at Ocean House, and once again, had an amazing stay. We spent 8 nights there this time, and if we didn't have pets at home, we'd still be there!!

My husband and I drove down from Fort Lauderdale for a weekend getaway for my birthday. It was just what the doctor ordered. From the moment we drove onto the property, we knew we were in for a treat. Check-in involves a tour of the property, where you realize quite quickly that it is landscaped beautifully and that you may... More

My husband and I stayed at Ocean House for five nights in June. It was our first trip to the Keys and we were a little unsure of what to expect as we began to near our destination.

My family and I stayed at the Ocean House for a too brief one night stay on our recent visit to the keys. We loved everything about our visit. The rooms are delightful, the pool is wonderful and we took advantage of the kayaks available to all guests. It was a fun and very pleasant stay. We would definitely visit... More

Spent a weekend there at the beginning of June 2014. My girlfriend and I wanted an out of the way location, and found the absolutely perfect place. I drove into a small slice of heaven.

Very charming. Only 8 rooms. Kind of like a b&b but more private. Impeccably maintained. Staff is wonderful. Modest continental breakfast anywhere on the grounds (pool, beach, cabana.) easy walk or free bike ride to restaurants. Bayside, so no sunset view. This time the resort's cat spent a night curled-up with us. Still wish the rooms had ceiling fans and... More
