A great place to really unwind. Only here for 2 days on our way back from key west - lovely place to catch our breath before moving on to Key Largo. Sounds cheesy but it really is a chance to just be in the moment and really appreciate your surroundings and how lucky we are to have been here. Thank... More

The accommodation is rated as 2 star which in my opinion is a little low. The 2 bed apartment we stayed in was spacious and clean. The location is idyllic and it is lovely to lie on the hammock and watch the sun go down. The beach really comes alive at night so it is worth taking a torch and... More

Grassy key is located a little bit from the downtown of Marathon which makes it a very relaxing place.They have a pool on the ocean, Kayaks to rent. The rooms were very clean and gave us the feel of the old Florida. We enjoyed our stay immenselyat the White Sands Inn.

Great hotel! The staff is very friendly. Our room is small but overlooks the ocean! Amazing view! The grounds are well kept. Kayak rental on property for a reasonable price. Quiet and quaint. The decor is fun and old Florida. The other visitors were very positive about their stay as well

We had a great time, the owners are very nice along with the inn keeper. The rooms are older but has everything you need, yet the outside is beyond natural beauty.... besides who wants to be inside when you are at the keys!!

So, my friend books this place six weeks ago for a wedding. They call a week ago and say they can no longer accommodate her. AND they try to charge her a $20 cancellation fee. What?? She argues with them ... They finally credit her account with the $300. And she is still out a hotel room... No let me... More

My daughters and I stayed 2 weeks here and loved every minute! It is adorable and cozy, just what we were looking for and we did look around a lot. The price is right, it has a pool and beach front with kayaks and dock right there in your yard. Our room was like a little cottage! We were in... More

I was told about this place by a fellow bartender and man were they right! The views we perfect and everyone was over the top nice! The rooms we clean and the hammocks were exactly what I was looking for! I can't wait to plan my next vacation here!

Our family just returned from spending a week there. We rented 2 units #1 and #5. The owners made you feel very welcome, telling us to make ourselves at home and enjoy ourselves. They had 2 hammocks, that my grandchildren loved, a swing several lounge chairs all overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Their pool was okay, long but not very wide.... More

Our recent stay at the White Sands Inn was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever been on. If you are looking for an original Key West laid back vacation spot this is your place. The Inn is beach front with kayaks for rent right on the premises! My husband and I stayed in the Great Heron Room... More
