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

The place upon first view was nice and as previously mentioned, laid back and reminds one of 'old' Florida or any beach town... Right on the beach, nice patio area outside of my room (stayed in the key lime room) Bathroom/shower stall is small but recently renovated and has nice tile work. Heated pool, nice and everything you would need... More

This was our first time to the Florida Keys, so I had no idea what to expect. We wanted something that was quintessential "old" Keys, and we got it. From the time we pulled into the small driveway/yard, the palm trees and coconut trees were swaying in the breeze, the brightly colored buildings perched on the sand with the deep... More

I have been staying here for years and absolutely love this place, it's clean and quiet not a large resort type. Rachel has been the owner as long as I have been going there. They are very accomodating should you need directions or any other information. I will be going back to stay there again:)

This is paradise. You step out onto the beach from the rooms and are met with an incredible view. The water isn't great for swimming but you can head to a gorgeous beach at the state park next door. You can purchase cold sodas and waters in the office. A special place.
