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!! Not only does the location, view, gardens, pool, and guest accommodations stand above all, the STAFF truly goes above and... More

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. The main road through Islamorada is not impressive...and like much of the Keys is gitchy, replete with quirky shops, vintage 50's motels... More

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

You are absolutely right, one night at Ocean House is not nearly enough to thoroughly experience the ambiance of our unique resort! From what our past guests relay to me, five to seven nights at Ocean House allows for total and complete relaxation and revitalization.

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. The grounds were meticulously maintained, the rooms were very clean (and included a full size refrigerator for leftovers!). The view? Breathtaking. I can honestly say... More

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at Ocean House in Islamorada, Florida. I can't say enough about this place. You feel like you are on a private island away from everything. The resort has 8 units (4 large units on top and 4 smaller units on the bottom floor). It is absolutely beautiful, with lush landscape, a... More

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

Most definitely the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed in all the superlative reviews are fully deserved. We chose Coral Reef, one of the two upper floor end rooms and loved every moment we were there. The balcony had a curtain that can be drawn to separate it from the next door balcony giving complete privacy and a wonderful ambience.... More

For $500-plus a night you expect perfection. A backed up sewage system is not perfection. We woke up to this problem both mornings and ended up missing the free breakfast to go out and find a restaurant to use the bathroom. We checked out after 2 of 5 planned nights. They only charged me for the 2 nights but didn't... More
