Clean, free parking, nice owners. Rooms though are VERY, VERY, VERY SMALL. Walking distance to everything you want to see in Key West (which was very nice). If you are staying for one night, I would recommend, more than that, you would want to stay somewhere with a bigger room and someplace with more amenities.

Excellent location, just off Duval Street, but far enough away for it to be quiet during the night. The owner was incredibly friendly and welcoming to me, offering a lot of advice about where to go. The room I was given was not very large, but comfortable and clean. I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone headed to Key... More

Had a lovely two day stay at the Caribbean House in Key West. Quite a sweet quirky place but we made to feel very welcome. Nice outdoor seating made a pleasant place to hang around & enjoy a nightcap. Fantastic location right near Duval Street and all the bars and restaurants. Also only a short walk from the beach at...

This is the best deal in key west for lodging with pets. Great location, 2 blocks off of Duval. As others have said the rooms are on the small side, but are in perfect condition. Marie was very helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay there again.

Michel and Marie will welcome you with a big smile. Not only they are the cheapest on the island, but also their rooms are not as small as they alert it. And anyway, of what I heard, they are small in all B&B on the Keys... They have made that place a really cosy & lovely cocoon for those who... More

We only needed a place for one night, and during the time we went, every hotel was either all booked or too expensive (at least 250 for a single bed room). I found the Caribbean House online, called, and was shocked at how low the prices were compared to others in the area. It was at least a hundred less... More

Picked in this lovely B&B for 2 days on basis of reviews. Booked by phone with the French lady that runs this place with her husband. The B&B has 4 parkingspaces available for $10 a/day I believe. We booked one in advance, but since there was a spot in front of the B&B there was no need for this and... More

We booked not only a room, but also paid for parking in front of the hotel, because parking can be difficult to find. My husband was a bit uncomfortable with the neighborhood, but I didn't see any street people hanging around, even late at night. Besides a lock on the door, the gate to the hotel also has a lock,...

I travel a lot and always use tripadvisor as my bible for booking accommodations. Combined reviews are very infrequently wrong and I tend to only stay at places ranked within the top 10% of tripadvisor reviews for a destination. I generally regret taking a chance on any place outside the top 10% or so but am VERY happy that I... More

We live in Miami and periodically like to drive down to the keys for a quick weekend trip. But Key West is so expensive, and we hate to think of spending $250 a night on most of the hotels down there, when we just don't care where we stay. This is the perfect fit for us! I describe it as... More
