My wife and I stayed here and felt very comfortable. Rooms are very well decorated. The location is terrific and unassuming, but I prefer out of the way hideaways. While some folks may want someone in the office at all times, in the Keys I don't want attention as much as anonymity. We didn't lack for anything during our stay... More

Rooms are not what they seem in the photo's. Showers overflowed into the bathrooms, bugs in the room and a very musty smell in the rooms. Beds are hard and the administration is horrendous and not professional at all. When we called about the problems all we got was screamed at, they told us that Orkin is there every month,... More

Spotty or no wife. Poor maid service, Mattress was lumpy & hard. Nobody in office most of the time. If you wanted to talk to owner, you usually had to call her. Shower only, no tub. They shuffle you from room to room to accommodate new customers. Snowy old TV. Need I say more.

This is a spectacular place to stay in the Keys. The location is perfect, close to Bahia Honda, Hideaway Cafe, and right on the ocean. It is a place with good vibes, the owners are very friendly and accommodating, and the other people there were fun. Sunrise was breathtaking. Pool was great. The rooms were super clean and our bathroom... More

We stayed there 2 nights. The hotel is not in Marathon but a few miles from everything. The hotel needs a lot of repairs and maintenance. We could not get any Wifi in our room which was too far from the office. The fan was not working; the second day the room was not made up ; new towels were... More

We had a large two bedroom apartment on the second floor which was spacious enough for two couples. A huge deck off the living area but unfortunately the weather was too cool to sit outside. The location is great...steps from the ocean with loungers and a double hammock. Also a small heated pool. Painted bright colours gave the small resort... More

Family driven B&B, close to the sea, but with the US 1 nearby. Nice service and pool, but beach wasn´t great - too muddy. Wi-fi and servieminded "crew". Close to the Dolphin Reaserach Center and Sombrero beach.

We stayed at White Sands for ten days in November. It was a very relaxing stay. We wanted something other that typical resorts and this was just the place for us. We had a bedroom, well stocked kitchen and balcony. Since we prefer to look at water rather than being in/on water it was perfect for us. We stayed in... More

We decided to try somewhere new, somewhere other than staying in a Marriott style hotel for a change. I'm not sure where to start because there were so many things we enjoyed about this cute place. As long as you are easy going and not high maintenance you will love it here. We can't wait to go back. We stayed... More

pleasant with great views.... Quiet. Beautiful sunrise. Couldn't ever get a free kayak though. Well stocked kitchen for cooking. Nice comfortable beds. Free parking. Books to loan. Great hammock where you can hear the sea breeze in the palms over your head....but still hear Highway 1 some too..... Relaxing and very good for price. Would be excellent for family. ..........................Hope... More
