The staff was very professional and polite. Very helpful in making suggestions on where to dine or ordering a cab, etc. The rooms were very neat and well maintained. Although at times it was hard to get hot water to run and the water pressure is always low in Key West. Parking was a bit of a problem with just... More

Stayed in Island House for 5 nights! This is without doubt one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The facilities are amazing, the rooms exceptional and the staff are outstanding! I made the most amazing new friends here which I will keep in touch with for a long time to come! After staying here, feel totally relaxed... More

Stayed at Island House for only 1 night which was to be honest far too short! Next visit we will definitely stay a little bit longer. Despite the rather high price tag, we had an amazing time at Island House, met new friends, enjoyed the Sunday afternoon pool party and all other facilities! We found the B&B very well maintained...

Island House is a fun and relaxing place to stay while in steamy Key West (we went in late June). The staff, especially at the front desk, is knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The property itself has a lovely courtyard with a pool, the bar and restaurant and is the focal point of the Inn. Two jacuzzis, a steam room,... More

I didn't stay at the Island House but after looking for a decent gay place to have a drink, I went to the Island House. Even if you're not staying in there, you're allowed to go in the bar and have a drink. Bartenders are very friendly and if you want to use the pool, sauna e hot tub there... More

My first stay at Island House was a vacation experience unlike any other I've had. What really sets the place apart is certain vibe that is hard to easily define. I agree with others that wrote the place is attitude free; the staff was very helpful and attentive. The weather wasnt the best during our stay which made me really... More

A great place to relax and unwind. Ambience at and around the pool very good, staff charming, relaxed atmosphere where groups/individuals chat to each other without imposing themselves. Onsite masseur good after the stress of work and a long journey. Rooms have little spare space, but that is not needed on a holiday such as this, and spotlessly clean and... More

My partner and I visited Island House for my birthday weekend…Cinco de Mayo ‘12. We have stayed at quite a few gay properties coast to cost and figured Island House would be like all the rest. WE WERE WRONG!!!! One of the best birthdays I have ever had. The property is incredibly beautiful and “spotless”. Entire staff was very friendly,... More
