“Of course there are cottages!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2005

I am quite puzzled by a previous review that refers to the charming
Casa Alante Guest Cottages as a strip motel -- I believe you have the
wrong property all together! These cottages are away from the center
of Key West -- I believe the listing says 3 miles from Duval Street -- so
I think there may be a misunderstanding. I hate to see this, as the owners
of Casa Alante are wonderful people and work hard to create a very special
place to stay.

My husband and I stayed at Casa Alante a couple of summers ago and loved it. It is certainly not a motel of any kind, but a cluster of cottages surrounded by lovely tropical plants, grouped around a wonderful swimming pool. It was originally built as a vacation resort for high rollers in one of the large auto companies in the 1920's (Packard, maybe?). Anyway -- the chickens/roosters are classic Key West culture. You will see them all over the island and they serve the VERY useful purpose of eating insects... Of course, if you have a fowl aversion or are a very light sleeper, it's best to choose someplace else. Due to their location away from the party spots, the cottages are very quiet aside from the early morning rooster crows.

My sister and I loved our stay at Casa Alante, it was a pleasant surprise. More than what we had expected, no iron in the cottage, but we made do. I would stay in the same cottage for my next visit.

My wife and I chose Casa Alante by looking on the internet and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The owners were most helpful with any requests that we had and when we came back after dark, the lights were always on, and there was a Hibiscus Blossom on the bed. We will definitely stay there again. Another reviewer complained about the chickens and other wild life around the property. Those are the things my wife and I found to be most charming about Casa Alante. Perhaps that person needs to learn how to relax and this is a perfect place to do that.

Our first time ever in key west we arrived at night to find our key in the mail box,with our lights on as if an old friend was arriving. We woke in the morning to a great fruit and coffee breakfast & a tropical delight all around us. Sandy & Kati made our first stay in KeyWest a pleasure, and we just keep going back to Casa Alante. Rooms are clean with lots of Kesey attitude and island atmosphere. Love the roosters and the birds.See you there!!!!

I was at the Casa Alamte in May of 2003. I was there as a small group with my wife a son for my son's 21st birthday. The place is great!
Owners some of the most friendly people I have ever meet in my life!
The hotel is what you find in old school Key West. We have been to Key West at least 12 times in the past ten years. Have stayed a lot of places, but for the price, the owners and the way we were treated this is the best place we have ever stayed at in Key Wesy and will stay there again! Mark Drais

I am quite shocked by some of the reviews I have read on this website regarding Casa Alante.My husband & I have stayed there 2 years in a row & have loved it more each time. We even got married at Casa Alante due to weather conditions and the owners were so quick to accommodate us. They decorated the gazebo so beautifully for us. We have recommended Casa Alante to all our friends & family & everyone loves it. The owners are friendly, genuine people, knowledgable about eveything on the island. And especially for us pet lovers, they allow pets in certain cottages. It is a quiet, calming, relaxing retreat away from busy Duval St. You have a daily continental breakfast waiting for you in the morning, the rooms are clean & the kitchen is fully stocked with your everyday needs. It is our home away from home. We will continue to stay there as long as we keep going to Key West!

I stayed at Casa Alante in May 2003. It was my first trip to Key West, and it will not be my last! I have fallen in love with the island, and most of all this wonderful tropical paradise called Casa Alante. First of all, it is owned by two lovely women who are so accomodating and genuinely welcoming. The grounds are like a tropical jungle with magnificent foliage and birds of all kinds. I especially loved the roosters. The rooms were clean and lovely, decorated with freshly picked flowers. And your breakfast is brought to your private terrace every morning, also served with freshly picked flowers. Pets are allowed in some cottages, and if you bring your well-behaved pooch, a ribbon wrapped Milk Bone also arrives on your breakfast tray. It's a peaceful retreat, away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street. I plan on returning every year to my newly discovered paradise!
