Quiet, clean and so welcoming. Family-owned with onsite owners, this is a hidden gem. Very small property preserves the relaxation you're looking for in the Keys. Mike is incredibly genuine and helpful. Recommendations for meals, etc. are available in the room, legit experiential suggestions (not pay to play). Perfect Gulf-front. Quiet. Intimate. Sit by the water, use the paddle boats... More

Just spent a relaxing weekend in the keys and really enjoyed our stay at the resort. I always prefer to stay in smaller family run b & b's or inn's.
