“Artist House on Fleming - Super!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

This was my first trip to Key West, and we arrived at the same time as the world champioship boat races. Luckily, there was a room for us. Even luckier was the great ambiance and just the right atmosphere bringing guests and staff together. The main floor room was quite spacious, and much quieter than I might have expected being at the street level. Fresh croissants and bagels delivered each morning, along with a good variety of fruits and cereals and a bottomless coffee pot started the day right. We felt at home, and won't bother to check anywhere else when we come back to Key West.

This is now my favorite place to stay in Key West, and that's saying a lot. After having lived in Miami for a while and now making yearly pilgrimages to Key West, I have been there literally dozens of times.

The rooms are very quaint and incredibly comfortable. Typically I'm more of an adventurer and don't spend much time in the room, but the coziness prompted me to sleep in every single morning. Everything is also impeccably clean.

The owner, Jo, is fantastic, as is her staff. We dealt mostly with Jo and Trevor, and can't say enough how personable they are. Anything you could possibly need they will provide, or help you find out how to get it. They helped us book a snorkeling excursion and have many other day trips and activities to choose from.

The atmosphere is incredibly laid back, which is lovely for us, as we prefer to stay in quieter areas of Key West. We really were treated as though we were staying at a friend's home. It's very much a "help yourself" attitude with food, coffee and happy hour. The daily happy hours were a great way to meet other guests, and we were allowed to enjoy some drinks at the other property as well when Jo heard we were going to be in that neighborhood. The expansive continental breakfast was fresh and tasty, with numerous pastries, cereals and fresh fruit. The staff is very much willing to accommodate each guest's schedule, which is going above and beyond.

I was here during low season, and for two of the nights we were the only people in the entire place. Because it was low season, prices were reasonable for a B&B. I can see why some people might be a little turned off by the price during high season, but we have to remember it's like that at every nice place on the island... and you really do get a lot for the price at this establishment.

The dipping pool in the back is small yet refreshing. We enjoyed nightly dips during the hot summer nights. It's surrounded by a nice little patio, where we chose to eat breakfast every morning.

As far as location, it's pleasantly away from, yet easily walkable to, Duval Street. The Artist House on Fleming is very close to the wharf area, which is where we prefer to spend most of our time. There is street parking throughout the neighborhood, just make sure to pay attention which spots are solely for residents.

I would absolutely recommend the Artist House on Fleming to anyone wanting a comfortable, laid-back place to stay for a few days. I know we'll definitely be coming back.

From the very second we walked into the Artist House on Flemming, it felt like we were already treasured guests. We were part of a party of 12 for a 5 night stay and our host Jess greeted us by name once we arrrived. Luckily arriving at happy hour was an added bonus.

Our first floor room was bright and cheery with a nice king bed and large bath. It was a perfect size for our stay. The maid was always there to straighten up and provide fresh towels each day and fresh linens when requested.

After speaking with Jhost ess we learned that the house was under newer ownership and completely remodeled and updated over this past winter and re- opened in June. Our location on Fleming was a comfortable few block walk to either Duval or the marina area. Over the next few days we all gathered each morning in the kitchen/outside patio for breakfasts and discussed the previous nights adventures. The breakfast was a various assortment of muffins, breads, fruits, quiches, bagels and lovely mimosa's! And if we were around in the late afternoon, we had a nice happy hour on the front porch. Our second host Trevor helped with anything we needed and really served as our concierge by arranging whatever excursion we wanted to do, or calling a cab or just answereing our most mundane questions. We also met the owner Susan who was just very gracious as well.

Overall we 100% satisfied with our stay and I will be back to stay again next time in Key West!!

Room Tip: ASk for a room with a King Bed.

Our group of 12 stayed at the Artist House on Fleming last week. It is a beautifully re-done bed and breakfast. The entire house was very clean and the housekeeper was there every day - nothing was overlooked. We stayed in the Flagler Room on the first floor (king size bed and handicap accessible). The house is located about 6 blocks from Duval Street -- an easy walk, and just far enough away to avoid the noise. We rented an electric car from Conch Electric Cars (right around the corner from the Artist House on Fleming). A nice continental breakfast was put out every morning (including mimosa's) and the quiches were great. They also provide a nice happy hour every evening, but unfortunately, we were only able to enjoy it one night since we were busy enjoying the sights of Key West. We took our breakfast out to the garden every morning. Sitting on the comfortable furniture on the wrap around porch was a nice way to relax at the end of the day. Jess, Trevor and Jo were very helpful and provided a lot of great information about places to visit in the area. A definite place to go back to!

Great place to stay. Very clean, quiet and comfortable and the breakfast was simply delicious. It's not cheap but it's worth spending 170$ for a room in a place like this! Higly recommended

My husband and I wanted to extend our week long vacation in Key West, and had made reservation for one night only at the guest house.... after we had made the reservation, being OVERLY anxious to arrive, we drove 15 hours the first day and needed an extra day on the front end. We were originally to stay at the Eaton Street location, which did not have anything available for the first night we needed, but Jessica took extra time and effort and moved us into the Fleming Street location with an upgrade into a two room suite.

Upon arrival, Jo, the owner, was VERY helpful and even helped carry my EXTREMELY heavy bag up the two flights of stairs to our lovely suite. We enjoyed a nice visit getting acquainted during their complimentary happy hour on the back deck by the wading pool. Jo encouraged us to check out their sister property on Eaton, and advised we could even take advantage of their complimentary happy hour.

The location is very convenient to the places we normally frequent. There would be those who would definitely want to take advantage of renting bicycles, which is a service offered directly through Artist House.

On our last morning at the guest house, we had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Trevor, who was working the front desk while we enjoyed a tasty complimentary continental breakfast... complete with mimosas!! All three of these lovely proprietors go out of their way to make sure guests are taken care of.

Will give the Artist House four thumbs up, and will definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonable priced place to stay with all the amenities one could possibly need.
