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.

Thank you for the wonderful review! Glad you found Atlantis House "One of the most relaxing places you've stayed." Besides the beautiful rooms (which Capt. Steve designed and built and Kayla decorated) and tranquil Gardens of which Capt. Steve planted everything and maintains... our location is what makes us quiet and exclusive. Today with Google maps and even better Google Earth you can take a little journey and see exactly where we are located. We are the only guest house in Key West next to a park, and better, a 6 acre indigenous park and wildlife rescue facility (nice compliment to Capt. Steve's Eco-Tours). Guests are amazed how quiet we are! We are also the closest guest house to Key West's Marine Park, White St Pier (great for sunrises and sunsets), the Civil War West Martello home of the Garden Club (if you like plants and history) and 40 yds from Rest Beach (indigenous) and 1 block from Higgs Beach! The whole island of Key West is 3.5 miles x 1.25 and you can be anywhere on a bike in 5-10 minutes. Atlantis House offers 3 sets of complimentary bikes for our guests. We are on the South side, centrally located on the island, 40 yds from the Atlantic Ocean, 1.75 miles from any location in Key West and 1 mile from the Southern end of Duval St. Thanks again for the excellent review!
