Wanted a weekend get-way for my husband's birthday and found this secluded spot on trip adviser. We selected it because of the reviews on trip advisor so everyone please keep posting your opinions. We selected it mainly as it only had 8 units and it was couples only with no pets so was quiet and relaxing. The photos on line... More

Our small size and the fact that we limit our guests’ age to over 16 and pets stay at home makes Ocean House the perfect get a way place for couples looking to relax in a quiet, soothing atmosphere. Our size also allows for the staff to get to know our guests and provide excellent service without being bothersome or... More

This hidden gem is the ideal get-away for a deluxe stay where one feels totally pampered with a chance to unplug and relax away from the busy tourist establishments.

I don't even know where to start! From the second you arrive, it's like you're their one and only priority. The staff was very attentive, eager-to-please and personable. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous, beautiful and pristine. With only eight rooms, you're in your own tropical paradise; very, very secluded and private. We felt like we were the only ones on...

Liked this resort for the privacy. Location was nice. Room nice but not what I expected thought would be more luxurious.. Not many amenities to speak of. Adults only which we liked . Nice pool and cabanas. Staff also very nice and helpful with dinner reservations. Glad we stayed there.

Our location in the heart of Islamorada puts our guests a short distance from all that Islamorada has to offer. Our lush landscaping, our set back off the old highway and being an ocean front property offers the privacy that you enjoyed. Of course, being an adults only resort cuts back on the children noise factor. We are the resort... 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!

The description of a beach is a little disengenuous - this is a coral island and the 'beach' is not how you might imagine it.

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
