When we initially started planning our trip we were looking at resorts and chain hotels. We somehow stumbled upon Ocean House and I'm so glad we did. We chose Ocean House because the ratings and comments were so high and the pictures were beautiful. Almost too good to be true but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to see the pictures were identical to what we saw in person. Every room has a nice view and easy access to both the front and back of the property. I loved that there were 3 cats on the property. It made it feel more like a home and less like a hotel.
The staff was great and helped make our stay that much more enjoyable. All were very pleasant to talk to and they never made you feel as if you were bothering them. We wanted to take a sunset cruise and they called around and gave us our options and even it booked it for us. We didn't have to do anything except show up.
The gardner, Lorelei, does an amazing job with the property. There's no doubt she works hard to make Ocean House a tropical getaway for all the guests. Our stay was at the end of July so we spent most of our time in the pool area. The pool was inviting and the water very refreshing.
Ocean House is in a great location. It's near a drug store in case you forget anything and there's lots of dining options (my favorite was Island Grill). You're also not too far from Key West or the Everglades if you want to take a day trip.
I would recommend Ocean House to anyone who's looking for a little peace and quiet, cleaniless, beautiful grounds and an attentive, caring staff. We will definitely come back.
