Just got back from five absolutely wonderful days/nights at this amazing B&B and already now I can´t wait for our next visit! It´s simply SO wonderful, lovely, beautiful and with a very special charming atmosphere. A place that deserves an extra star here on Tripadvisor, full of charming and different details both inside the house and in the wonderful garden. We got the Audobon room which we immediately loved with it´s light, colours, beautiful furniture and the HUGE bathroom. And the bed and the bedlinen was of course of top quality. I love details and this was a room full of it. Paintings, lamps, curtains and lots of nice smelling schampoo, soap etc. Saw some of the other rooms too and they seemed to be just as charming with their own special personality. The garden/jungle;-) is simply wonderful that too and a lovely place to relax and enjoy the sounds of birds or the cikades. A little Paradise full of flowers, plants, pots and birds of all kinds. There is also a small pool which was perfect for an afternoon dip. The breakfast which was being served in these lovely surroundings was simply delicious. The best coffee you can imagine and every day fresh muffins and a hot dish like quiche, French toast, waffles and so on. Really mouthwatering. ;-) There was also fresh brewed coffee for the early birds, complimentary sodas, afternoon lemonade and wine, what a treat! Very impressing.
But it´s not only the beauty of this place that makes you remember it, it´s also the wonderful hosts and personnel working there that made our visit to such an unforgettable stay. We felt truly welcome, from the first reply to my availability request to their final mail after we had left. Everyone was SO nice and sweet and helpful at all times. Their advice regarding restaurants, tours etc was very useful and especially with Rebecka´s help we managed to get some delicious dinners and a great sunset tour. And for animal lovers there is also Caya and Havana, the two lovely dogs always willing to play and tease you and without them the B&B would not be the same. Simply adorable dogs!
For travellers that wants something special, this is a "must"! Really really highly recommendable, just loved it and will definitely be back. :-)

Room Tip: Lovely lovely rooms all of them.

This was our second time at the Mermaid
and the Alligator . This time we stayed in the bamboo room. The bamboo room is a free standing bungalow with a charming front porch for your exclusive use. I can tell you we made full use of the porch.At the end of the day with a glass of wine we would enjoy the lush gardens and the sounds of the birds.it was so inviting we would invite the lovely people we met to join us on "our porch". We were so comfortable with this room we re-booked before we left.
The quality remains constant. The breakfasts excellent ,high standards maintained, dogs well trained and lovable.I miss my dogs when I travel and I think Caya and Havana sense this.
I highly recommend this B+B.

My husband and I had the pleasure of being guests at the mermaid and the alligator last year for our anniversary. From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed. The home is absolutely beautiful and the rooms graciously appointed. The owners were extremely helpful with restaurant and sight seeing information. They booked all of our excursions and even ordered our bicycles for the week. We didn't even have to call a cab to take us to the airport. They took care of all of it. Breakfasts out in the garden were a special treat. My husband and I rarely visit a destination more than once, but are considering revisiting the mermaid and alligator.

We were looking for something special to celebrate our anniversary and The Mermaid and the Alligator fit the bill. They contacted us before our visit to help with restaurant and excursion reservations which helped immeasurably. Then, from the start, we felt at home. Each room at this B&B has it's own personality - we had the opportunity to stay in two different rooms, the Sun Room and the Treetop Suite. Both were fantastic!
Everyone associated with this friendly home was phenomenal, friendly, helpful, and did everything they could to make us comfortable.
We will be going back to Key West and we will do our best to stay at The Mermaid and the Alligator - it's just so popular, they seem to always be full

Room Tip: We loved the Sun Room because of the private terrace.... the Treetop Suite was spacious and beautiful - you have to be careful that you don't hit your head on the sloping ceilings (tall guys especially), and the garden tub would be great but we're not tub people.

The treetop suite was quiet, private and overlooked Paradise! It took a little adjustment due to the eaves that created an awesome ceiling. The staff was very attentive - available for any need. Rebecca and Geri provided incredible concierge service making suggestions and reservations when we were overwhelmed by our wedding. The gardens are truly paradise. Dean provided us with plenty of tips for our own secret garden. We enjoyed the pool in the afternoons before going out on the streets. We can't wait to return! P&R
