First I hesitate to write this review because we found our new to go place and I didn't want to have this place become unattainable. But with this economy I had to give the owners the accolades they deserve. We only stayed for three nights but it blew away our expectations. Our plane was delayed but with a quick phone call they had everything waiting for us when we arrived...no stress. Breakfast was plentiful with trays allowing you to take food to your balcony to enjoy or eat in the beautiful courtyard. Bikes available onsite with just a quick stop in the office and you are on your way...easy. A great deli up the road (Old Town Bakery) letting you grab something to bring back and enjoy on the porch swing with a glass of wine...perfection. Even the people staying at this B&B were friendly and everyone we met have come back year after year. Downtown is just a couple of blocks away but at night it is quiet. We stayed on the second story overlooking the street and we loved it being able to people watch from the balcony. The parking could be an issue but we fly into Key West and taxi in. All of Key West is a parking nightmare we drove into Key West one year and have never done it again it just added stress we don't need.
