The Avalon is a real find in Key West. It's a walk away from the din of the town center, but a close enough to walk, or stumble, to if you'd like to participate. The room was lovely and brought to mind the life of Ernest Hemingway (although he never lived here, but close by) with its airy tropical feel,... More

Thank you so much for the kind words. I was pleased to hear you enjoyed the colonial ambience we strive to provide in keeping with the homes history. Hemmingway very well may have spent time here, especially since the property once held a Gymnasium used for Boxing training at one time. Also glad you enjoyed taking breakfast on the porch. More

My mom and I stayed here 4 days and 3 nights and we really enjoyed the Avalon bed and breakfast. The breakfast every morning was delicious and we loved sitting on the front porch eating. The rooms were quiet and very clean with the bed being nice and comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, they answered all our... More

Nice Victorian place on the very south end of Duval: tourists, yes. But not like the noisy north end! Nice staff and the hotel was IMMACULATELY CLEAN! Close to the southernmost point in the US, the Butterfly Museum (go! It's great!). If you want to be very close to the action of Duval Street, without all the noise, this is... More

We stayed here for two nights. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast sitting on the porch was very good. If we are fortunate enough to return to Key West we would go back to stay at Avalon.

Avalon is somewhat of a hidden gem: a beautiful house with great facilities and very friendly staff, located on the main downtown street. We stayed just one night and loved it - parking was available opposite and breakfast was excellent.

Located right around the corner from the southernmost point in the USA. Great breakfast, nice clean pool area and decent porch view. Get reservations far in advance or go off season. They upgraded us to a bigger bed which was beautiful.

Thank you for the kind words and good recommendations. Its true, especially for peak season, since we are a smaller property, you need to reserve well in advance especially if you have a specific room type in mind. We do love it when we can upgrade our guests due to last minute cancellations or availability, and I am glad you... More

I would have described this as more of a small hotel/guesthouse than a classic B&B, not in any way a criticism, just an observation. It's on Duval St, Key West's main drag, but right at the quieter southern end (in fact it's only a few steps from the southernmost point, something you'll see mentioned A LOT round here). We thought... More

I agree we are more a small boutique hotel. Traditional Bed and Breakfast's don't really exist in Key West. So happy you enjoyed your stay with us and our excellent location, close enough but not too close as we like to say. I think we are the only thing in our neighborhood not named the "Southernmost" something. I really appreciate... More

Location is perfect. Quiet neighbourhood but still very close to restaurants and shops and not far from the beach. The southernmost point of the U.S. just a few minutes away. Hemingway's house etc not far. The staff is very friendly. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Good breakfast! We loved the place. Nicely renovated old house.
