My husband and I just returned from a 10 day trip (April 10 thru April 20) to Key West and we stayed at the Heron House. Wow. The "house" itself is actually a bed and breakfast and hosts only about 20 or so rooms. It is quite private and lushly landscaped. It is also gated so no unwanted intrusions. Also no one under 21 and no spring breakers!! The staff was quite accommodating. Michael was there of serve us breakfast every morning. What a wonderful young man. Breakfast consisted of various breads, croissants, bagels, etc. with all the condiments to go with them. Also cereals, danish, coffee, tea, juice, milk. On different days sometimes there were hard boiled eggs, french toast or even omelettes. The rooms were nicely furnished, ours had a small fridge with a second sink next to it. The closet space was surprisingly large (most I have ever had anywhere but home!) It included a free safe. Also provided extra towels for the pool and we were told to feel free to take them to the beach if we wanted. They also provided us with bathrobes (which were for sale if you chose). The chambermaid came each day with fresh towels and cleaned up our room. One evening she noticed a bottle of wine we had and left us two wine glasses without us even asking. Outside of our room was a nice little setting of two comfy chairs and a table. Our room overlooked the ENORMOUS fish tank which was such a nice touch. Josh and Jeff at the front desk could not have been more helpful. The provided us with discount tickets to various places we wanted to see and one day Josh even reheated some leftovers for us to enjoy for lunch that we had from dinner the previous evening! (Eating and drinking around Key West can be a little pricey. Nice to have breakfast included each day.) The pool is located in the middle of the property and there was a nice sun deck above for those who wanted to sunbathe. Watch out, the sun down here is very strong. The location of this particular B & B was perfect. We did not have a car nor did we rent scooters. We are walkers anyway so that is what we did. We could get just about either end of the island in 12 or 15 minutes. Walking to a beach took a little longer. Speaking of the beaches, they are not the greatest. This is an island of coral so the beaches are a little hard on the feet. Especially the state beach Fort Zach Taylor. Remember to get water shoes if you go. The best thing we did was the Butterfly Conservatory. This is a must see if you like butterflies and birds. I was fascinated. The Pirate Museum was also worth the money. DO NOT TAKE THE WALKING GHOST TOUR. WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!!!!! Also took a snorkel /sunset cruise that was very enjoyable. The weather was perfect. Each day was sunny, dry and about 85 degrees. Perfect for me!! All in all, We loved it and would definitely stay here again if we chose Key West.
