Just returned to England after 5 nights at the Popular House / Key West Bed and Breakfast.
This was our 3rd time in Key West after previously staying at the Weatherstation and the Mermaid and Alligator.
This house is amazing and I could not recommend highly enough.
In summary - Spotless - location location location - value and the biggest asset the staff.
Every member of staff is so friendly and seem genuinely interested in you and your stay and your needs. A huge thanks to Trisha and Liz and the housekeeping staff for looking after us so well. When you arrive there is a small meeting / tour of the house that is well worth it for all the advice and informaton on what to see and do on the island. I would recommend the 2 x day silver trolley ticket ( unlimited hop on - Hop off 8 stops for 2 days for $20 ) great value.
Liz ( the south African lady ) prefers the Conch Train and she cant help herself choo chooing as the train passes the house on a regular basis. Liz actually takes this train all the time and NEVER gets tired of the funny jokes the drivers make.
Breakfast at 08.30 - Bagels / Cream Cheese - Fresh coffee - fresh fruit and homemade baking!!!! sets up the day a treat.
Plenty of balcony space to enjoy a cold beer after a shower before venturing out of an evening.
Michaels restaurant as a treat is just around the corner and is VERY nice. As were Satntiago Bodegas for Tapas and a place just of Duval for Martini Mondays at $5 a Martini reasonable value and great live band. Also for a pit stop close to home the Schooner Wharf bar was great - sunset on the high terrace overlooking the harbour with a happy hour pina colada with Meyers Rum float!! )
Miami for me was a disapointment ( might be to do with Memorial weekend - Bonkers and every business trying to rip you off !! ) but Key West was like coming home and i just love the place.I will be back soon and i dont think i would look much further than staying here.
Oh we met the lovely Jody only briefley ( twice ) and she has the most adorable dog - Goo. Too cute for its own good that dog and a welcome substitute for petting as my good lady wife always misses our dog when we travel.
One for the ladys you will always remember me - just check out the painting above the entrance to the kitchen door!! yes the shrek one!! It was like looking in a mirror!!! Thanks Again.
If you are staying here you have made a fantastic choice and will not regret it.
