Arrived at dusk to find a beautiful sunset. The room is large and has a separate living room that converts into another bedroom. It's comfortable enough for a night and there's a free continental breakfast.

My wife, friends & I have stayed here several times over the years, when it was called the "Hungry Pelican" and always found it to be the perfect place to unwind. If anyone needs to get away from the bustle of Miami and not get caught up in the tourist trap of Key West, then stay here awhile. Get up... More

This cluster of cottages appears charming and quaint, but once checked in, we found it poorly maintained and lacking in the most basic ways. Little or no air conditioning in a hot July night. No furniture other than the beds and a t.v. cabinet. No place for luggage or to sit. There was no table or desk to set up... More

Amazing waterfront property with mature landscaping but the cottages need a lot of work. Fairly clean but not comfortable or inviting. Everything needs to be replaced/updated. We had a 2 double bed room. Not much room for anything else. If you plan to do anything other than sleep there, this is not the place for you. The lady in the... More

We arrived around 9ish and one thing I didn't know was that the doors self lock so there we are unloading our truck and I leave the... More

Booked through booking.com, reviews really positive, not sure how. I appreciate this was on the cheaper side of the keys accommodation offerings, however at $130 per night it's not that cheap! We were able to check in early, room 201, well that's the back of the office just off route 1, so not that impressed, could hear everything that drove... More

The owner REALLY needs to throw some money back into this place. They had cheap plastic lawn furniture and old mis-matched furniture in the cottage. They didn't even bother to remove a broken chair from the screened porch! The electrical was SCARY. They provided a coffee pot but NO coffee. Minimal dishes in kitchen. Breakfast was toast, cereal, and pastries.... More

To start off, I want to say that my wife and I have stayed here three times before this, and they were all mostly positive experiences (we've reviewed all three stays, so you could read for yourself). This visit, however, was different. We stayed in a beautiful room on the second level of one of their cottages. It had a... More

We got one of the rooms on the bay with a screen in porch (could have used another comfortable chair and the room needed just a bit more lighting near the closet). Very nice and quiet. Yes it is dated but they have what you need and the staff was nice and helpful.
