This was our 1st time staying in Key West and resv. this B&B based on great reviews from this website. We stayed in the Jamacia room based on reviews. It has its own private entrance and No foot traffic. The room with the A/C running is quiet even though it faces the front of the street, on the 2nd floor. Room is Large, high ceiling, great shower, hardwood floors, ceiling fans, small fridge, coffee maker, small tv, no phone-which you don't need anyway. Room A/C worked excellent, King bed and pillows comfortable, room and bathroom Very clean with maid svc everyday. Great breakfast incl. in the rate with flav. coffee, fresh fruits, etc everyday. Pool is heated and clean. They have a small happy hour each after noon from 4:30-5:30. They will set out a "tip" jar, so if you want a srong drink, leave a tip, per my husband's experience. They have bike rentals which is great. Everything within walking or bike ride away. Tracey and staff are all very nice and very helpful to answer any questions you have about Key West.
We took the seaplane and it was a Hair raising experience on the way back, as out of the corner of my eye, I look up front at the control panel only to see the "LOW FUEL" sign flashing when we were out in the middle of the ocean with sharks below us!! We still have 20 min. to go back to shore!! It is your call, but I WOULD NEVER do it again. The plane sat 4 of us and is very tight in the back seat, so if you go, take the middle row. Going over your are only 500 ft above sea level and the views are excellent in the water. You will see huge sea turtles, BIG black tip sharks, sting rays. Fort Jefferson is great for the history, but the water is not that clear and the reef, fish are not abundant here. The seaplane is very expensive-about $300.00 per person.
You will not need a rental car here and parking is terrible anyway, so if you drive in, park it and leave it and rent a bike, motor scooter or hoof it.
Fort Zachery Taylor beach is a great way to spend the day. Rent a chair and umbrella. The snack stand has pretty good sandwiches, clean bathrooms.
If we return to Key West again, I would stay here and stay in the Jamacia room again in a heart beat! One word of Advice: If you get bug bites, bring your bug spray, as even in April, they were out early in the morning and after sunset!! You won't even see them flying around they are so tiny!
