My wife and I recently visited our favorite city for her 30th birthday and this was our second stay at a Key West B&B. The Artist House was absolutely amazing and location was perfect as we were easily able to walk to all our favorite spots. We stayed in the old master bedroom up stairs and it was jaw dropping. The private pool in back, breakfast, happy hour and friendly staff reminded us why we are forever B&B people. We will certainly be back. Highly recommended!

Jimmy, Thank you for taking the time to write your “perfect” review of The Artist House. We are thrilled that you appreciated our central location, lodging facilities, The Anne Suite and our complimentary breakfast and happy hour. It was also a real privilege to host you on such a wonderful occasion, your wife’s 30th birthday celebration. Please make sure to come back and visit us soon. It would be a real shame if you waited for another birthday to visit your favorite B&B, The Artist House of Key West!

We arrived at The Artist House hot and bothered ... then stepped into this glorious old home ... and into Carlos's wonderful welcome. Our room was the very gracious Morning room ... all was perfect, crisp cool sheets, delighful claw foot bath with a big strong shower head. The bathroom leads onto to a little outdoor balcony with table and chairs. There is a generous happy hour at the Artist House and I drank an excellent New Zealand sauvignon blanc! Carlos could not have been more helpful, he recommended Caroline's restaurant in Duval Street for fabulous salads and cocktails. Key West still has all its mythic charm, especially the Ernest Hemingway house with its 57 cats but also all the great bars with edgy and seriously good musicians. We especially enjoyed Tony Roberts' singing and guitar at the excellent Blue Macaw Bar, also famous for its Bloody Marys ... so what else ... well, just come to funky historical Key West ... and let Carlos And Jessica look after you ... this has certainly been the high point of our visit to Florida so far!

The location of the house if perfect! Everything is within a close proximity. The accommodations are clean and unique. However, Carlos makes the stay so much more special than any other place. He puts something special into every detail. I will definitely be going back. Can't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Pick your room in advance, each are a unique theme

Kristin, we cannot wait until you come back to The Artist House. Yes our house is so clean you can actually eat off the floor (although we don’t recommend, unless you are really hungry). Did I mention we are unique? We are an 1890 Queen Anne Mini-Mansion located smack dab in the middle of everything anyone would ever want to do in Key West ...and we have a amazingly unique history... including an amazing ghost story. Plus we have Carlos and the rest of the gang (Jessica, Shawn and Marlene) who dedicate their entire existence making sure our guests have a great vacation. So why would you want to stay anywhere else? Thank you for your amazing review of our property and we look forward to seeing you soon!

This was my first time at Artist House and stayed at a few different places last few time I was in Key west. This place great especially if you want to be near Duval Street but not deal with the noise. Suite had everything we needed and the extra perks offered made the stay even better. Staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Will be back on the next trip (if not sold out).

Brian, welcome aboard The Artist House Fan Club Train. We absolutely love when we get raving reviews from guests who have stayed at other properties in Key West and can give a well informed honest assessment of our property. We work so hard to make sure our guests’ have a wonderful Key West vacation stay and it certainly is nice to know our hard work and vision are paying off. Readers and potential guests should know that we are a small botique seven room historic (circa 1890) guesthouse located within walking distance of Duval Street, the historic seaport, and anything else one wants to do in Key West. We are definitely not a ‘cookie cutter’ lodging establishment; but for those looking to stay in a very unique, historic and authentic Key West property with a “very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating” staff, we invite you to jump on board and enjoy the ride. Thank you again for your wonderful review of The Artist House and we certainly hope to see you soon!

We knew it would be nice, but WOW! Carlos and Jessica have thought about every little detail to ensure a pleasant stay and a homey feel. We were in the Parlor room, which is very spacious with a beautiful bathroom. The breakfast is so much more than the traditional continental breakfast and was delicious. The happy hour is such a nice touch. We enjoyed some wine sitting outside on the beautiful patio area. It was my birthday and Carlos and Jessica gave me the cutest sushi cupcakes and prosecco. Again, so thoughtful and kind. Would recommend this B&B to everyone!
