“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

My husband and I stay three weeks a year here and absolutely love it. It is well maintained and the grounds are lush and lovely. It is amazingly private and secluded considering it is only a block of Duval Street. You can walk almost anywhere, as it is centrally located. The staff are always very nice and extremely accomodating. And there is a great Tiki Bar there between the two pools. The hot tub is wonderful- except in summer! We love Key West because of the Banyan.....

Room Tip: The best fitness is to walk everywhere and explore off the beaten path streets(Duval) and you will...

Redecorated and remodeled rooms make this place even better. Always a pleasure to stay just a blodk off of Duvall, the Banyan has newly finished pool, comfortable hot tub, and verdant gadens. The Banyan trees, like those in Hawaii, continue to grow across the grounds..

The Tiki Bar provides a meeting place with reasonably priced beverages and well prepared reasonable food.. Great when you want a day to relax by the pools..

I love this place! Tiki bar, 2 pools, jacuzzi, breakfast and lunches can be made and coffee is free for guests. An exotic jungle too!

Friendly team on site and they are renovating to be even more modern but the staff and atmosphere speak for themselves!

If you have to go to Key West and have never been. Close to everything but far enough to be quietier. ENJOY!

Room Tip: THey have a bike rentals there and they are a must. Drive carefully as people in the area are a bit...

A spotless place with the best location imaginable in charming Key West. Friendly staff, smooth arrival procedures. The banyan trees are spectacular, the garden is jungle-like and the mansion has loads of character. Still our apt was somewhat impersonal, maybe because we didn't get used to it... stayed only one night. No complaints about equipment, furniture etc everything looked brand new. This is a well-managed establishment!

I traded thru II for week of Sept 22-29, 2012. I am usually skeptical about trading to a property other than a Marriott or similar quality. I must say I was pleasantly surprised with this property. The gardens are beautiful, the grounds were kept immaculate and the 2br/2ba was clean and equipped with new furniture. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. We enjoyed the main pool a few days, however, the adult pool was under construction (no problem as the main pool was not overcrowded). The location couldn't be better, 1 block to Duval and couple blocks to Mallory Square. Enjoyed renting the bikes from the office and riding to the State Park beach (best one in Key West). Overall a very pleasant and relaxing stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone, in fact I'm thinking of buying in!

Room Tip: Ask for a room inside the property, they are much more private and quiet.
