“beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

The Artist House was recommended to us by our son and my husband and I have since stayed there on three visits to Key West. The Owners and all of the employees are so warm and friendly they make it a pleasure. Breakfast is delicious, the rooms are beautiful and it is so convenient to walk to everything in town. We love it here and pass is on to all of our friends.
Thank you.

We stayed at the Artist House for 3 nights at the end of November and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My title of this review sums it up really and I would completely recommend this guest house to anyone staying in Key West.

A few other points to mention are; Laura, she was so helpful, she welcommed us when we arrived and helped us get settled and then recommended restaurants, bars and entertainment to try giving us vouchers that got us free drinks at some restaurants if we dined there. The breakfast is lovely, plenty of choice. The happy hour (free limited bar) was great and I don't think people took advantage of it enough. Finally, the plunge pool/jacuzzi was lovely to sit in and sip a frozen cocktail.

If it wasn't so far away from home I would go back every year!! Enjoy.

We stayed at the Artist House on Eaton St and it was a lovely stay. Great location - we could walk to everything - and very accomodating staff. Breakfast was a great selection and it was nice to stay in a place with ambiance rather than some big resort.

The Artist House on Eaton Street is a wonderful Inn in a great location one block from Duval. Although it is a historic home, the rooms are very modern and comfortable. The Turret Room is great for families with a separate upstairs sleeping area for kids.

The Garden area with hot tub is great for breakfast and to unwind in the afternoons before heading to dinner.

Laura, Jessica, and Jo are outstanding hosts with great recommendations for restaurants and any other activities.

Stayed here two days in November. This is a large house with a limited amount of rooms (5 if I remember correctly), so it instantly gives a homely feeling. The receptionist (forgot the name - apologies!) was very helpful in giving us tips for dining and places to go to with our bikes - which is highly recommended. She even provided us with a screwdriver to release our bikes, which were double locked by someone else!

Room and bathroom were spacious, bed was great, breakfast was good, including fresh fruit. Property is very close to Duvall Street, but you cannot hear any of the noise. Parking costs $20/night. Overall a great experience and I would definitely return here!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Eugene Studio, which is very spacious, but on the ground floor, next to reception a...

We stayed here two days and loved it. The room was enormous and the king size bed was really comfortable! It is located near Duval street, but far enough not be bothered by it's noise. Parking is available for USD 20,00 a night. We rented some bikes from them to explore Key West, which is, in my opinion, the best way to explore key West.

Surprisingly the breakfast buffet includes champagne! We did not start our day with a champagne breakfast, but the fact that we could... tempting!

Thank you to Laura and staff for a fabulous three nights spent at this wonderful B&B. This property is rich with history and 1800's beauty. Every room had great little touches and loads of charm.

Started the day with a breakfast filled with fresh fruit, mimosas and pastries; spent the afternoon in the courtyard's Happy Hour and some nights took a midnight dip in their lovely hot tub!

This was a fantastic backdrop to an awesome weekend watching the boat races and touring the island with friends. Thanks again for all you did you make our trip wonderful! We'll be back again next year.

P.S. We appreciate you trying to argue with the KW cop over our scooter parking ticket!
