There are only two rooms here, we had the Master Suite with bar area and jacuzzi. The room was beautiful, we slept so well - it was so quiet! The backyard patio area is gorgeous and very relaxing. Steve and Kayla are amazing hosts - if Kayla has made her key lime pie during your stay you are in for a real treat. Seriously, it was the best I had in Key West. I really can't say enough good things, we really loved it here.
Some things to consider, the location is a bit from Duval Street but not too far that getting there is an issue. We loved being off the main drag because it was so quiet. We rode the free bikes Steve and Kayla offered everywhere and could easily get to Duval Street and all the restaurants. If you are not in riding bikes everywhere and are not keen on having to drive while on vacation in Key West, the location may pose some issues for you. We really had no trouble with it at all, the bikes take you everywhere you need to go in about 5-15 minutes.
Higgins Beach is very close, easily walkable (it's beyond Rest Beach, which isn't conducive to sitting out). Higgins beach is a public beach so keep that in mind, it's not a secluded private area. But it is a beautiful beach and we enjoyed it.
Also keep in mind if this is your first trip to Key West that there is a homeless population, and you will see some homeless folks occasionally on your biking treks. But we never once felt the slightest bit unsafe or uncomfortable, I just mention it so folks aren't surprised. Everyone was always friendly and kind - it must be the Key West lifestyle.
Louie's Backyard is very close - great bar right on the water.
I highly recommend this place for couples who want a quiet, relaxing and personal Key West experience. But if being off the beaten path isn't your style, this may not be your ideal place.
