Hotel's Favorite
My husband and I spent our 3rd anniversary there last week. It was our first time in Key West and I chose the right location to stay. We were greeted by Nancy with glasses of cool prosecco during check-in, which was very simple. We chose to use the onsite parking since it was available and inexpensive. We actually didn't move the car the entire stay. We were given a key to our cottage 1 and a key to the entry gate. Walking through the gate, we passed a splashing water feature alongside the pool, private to the cottage guests. Our Cottage 1 was straight ahead with a charming, large porch just for us. How exciting to walk in and explore the cool interior, tastefully decorated with ocean features and colors. Due to the current times, the breakfast bar was not open but they gave us a large bowl with all sorts of treats. They also gave us a card and complimentary bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge for our anniversary! so sweet of them. Off the living room, is the large bedroom with a king bed and French doors that lead to the shared porch behind. This is shared with two other cottages. The bed was comfortable and we had 6 large pillows to use. The bathroom is open to the bedroom with a private toilet, a closet for clothes, ironing board, etc and another closet which housed the small refrigerator and Keurig. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and bottles of water are supplied as you need them. We enjoyed a drink at the pool bar tended by Jay and enjoyed walking through the shady, magical gardens full of interesting artwork and even two tortoises. The self-serve wine bar is convenient and we enjoyed a fine glass of Merlot with the acoustic guitar player on Friday evening. In between enjoying Key West, we cooled off in our semi-private pool which was right in front of the cottage. It was perfectly relaxing. Thank you so much, we will definitely return!!

This place is a gem that we are so glad we found. Calm oasis in a very convenient location. There is no doubt that we will be back. Owners clearly put effort and attention to all the details. David was very helpful, always available as well as Sharon. It is one the reason why we will come back to Key west.

This hotel is the absolute perfect location with being only one block from Duval Street. My husband and I stayed for our honeymoon getaway. This place seriously made our honeymoon. The room was spotlessly clean and so nicely decorated. The gardens were absolutely breathtaking. The staff was so nice and accommodating. We didn't want to leave! We are already planning our next trip!
