My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. The Ocean House and its staff were fabulous. We were greeted and given a tour by Todd. We had breakfast served to us each morning wherever we chose (poolside and balcony). The gardens and its critters were so interesting. This vacation was so super relaxing that my husband asked me to... More

Beautiful, comfy room; great bathroom with very nice amenities and a very spacey kitchen area. Lovely pool and private little beach with lots of loungers. We had some great dinner from room service but sadly didn't have time for a crepe!

We happened upon the Ocean House on a travel through The Keys. It's a pretty secluded place, the stars at night are amazing! The resort staff is very helpful and you get so many extra perks included in your stay. Breakfast is served to you wherever you request it on the property, kayaks, Snorkel gear, magazines, bug spray, and sunscreen... More

We are happy you found us! Our small size, only 8 suites, lends itself to the privacy and quiet atmosphere you experienced. All of our amenities are included and by providing those little extras like the bug spray and sunscreen for our guests it keeps one from avoiding the hustle and bustle of tourism at the local pharmacy. We hope... More

The description of a beach is a little disengenuous - this is a coral island and the 'beach' is not how you might imagine it. If staying get a first floor room (no one walking above you and try for an end one so you only have one meighbour). Very attentive staff and great setting but in the cabana the... More

Very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your one night stay at Ocean House. Most of our guests are considerate of the other guests and keep the noise level in their rooms to a minimum. Unfortunately not everyone thinks of that. The ocean front access and beaches in the Keys are not like what you find in Miami.... More

We are pretty picky about places we pick to "decompress" and Ocean House fit the bill perfectly. They have thought of the smallest details to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. We enjoyed four nights at OH last week and cannot wait to return. The top floor room (Salt Water Taffy) was large, with separate living space with small kitchenette,... More

We were able to go back to our favorite resort in the Keys, Ocean House, in Islamorada, FL to celebrate our 38th Wedding Anniversary. This place is perfect for a romantic get-a-way.

An excellent and friendly boutique hotel in the heart of Islamorada and close to great restaurants. Staff are very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are well proportioned and nicely kept, the landscaping is impressive and the pool area a great place for meeting other travellers.

Our age limit criteria of our guests being 16 years of age or older certainly keeps the noise level down at the pool and on the entire grounds.
