We stayed in room 14, which I think is called the Palm-Brisbane-something-room, its actually a standalone house. This B&B (actually, just "B", no breakfast is included) is actually a collection of several houses that surround a beautiful lush garden. It had one extremely comfortable and soft bed, a rain shower, and a large living area that could have slept two more in a roll out couch. Its big wide double doors (with a lock that sticks) opened onto a beautiful patio area, with picnic furniture and lounge chairs, shared by the neighboring house, which then opened up into the pool and garden area, all steps away. There was also a private seating area on the opposite side of the house, but we didn't use it because it felt to closed in. With the small number of guests the more spacious public garden areas still felt quiet and restful.

The location was perfect on the end of Duval street, a couple blocks away, far enough to be separate from the chaos but just a couple block walk and we were surrounded by shops, art galleries, and tons of good food. The folks working at the front desk recommended one good meal after another, from high end bistros to food carts with perfect conch fritters. After bicycling around the island we were really glad we stayed on this end, which was more peaceful and walkable than the north end with the many chain hotels and busy traffic.

The pool was kept to a pleasantly warm temperature, and we enjoyed swimming it. Some of the pictures show a hot tub, but that has clearly been paved over. Their are quiet hours starting at 10 pm and the pool closes at midnight. Since everyone's room surrounds the pool, this is definitely necessary, though it would be a fun place to hang and drink wine with family and friends.

I would highly recommend this guest house to anyone. My only complaint is the price. We paid a substantial premium for the Christmas holiday, and honestly I am not sure it was worth that premium price, but I can tell you after substantial shopping in the Key West area the price was competitive with nearby places, so I guess they are getting what the market was willing to pay. My advice is if you plan to be in Key West between Christmas and New Year, book well ahead.

This is a hidden treasure in the middle of Old Town, with reasonable prices. We enjoyed the heated pool daily and the beautiful surrounding garden. Have been home 2 days and have already recommended it twice to friends.

Room Tip: The Coconut Palm Room is the second floor of an old house, with a small kitchen and a loft. If you have trouble with ladders this would not be for you. It has a balcony that over looks Amelia Street. The Triangle Palm is a beautifully decorated king suite, much nicer than the Coconut. It over looks the garden pool area. This would be my choice for a couple.

We went to Key West for a weekend wedding and wanted to stay close to Duvall Street but not the busier end. This hotel was clean, elegant, comfortable and located next to some great bars and restaurants. Kevin at the hotel was great with giving us directions to the wedding venue, and had great taste in restaurants too. The courtyard was beautiful and quiet (except for the roosters!) The hotel had ample parking. I didn't get to take advantage of the plunge pool but several others did and seemed to be having a great time. Go to Sweet Tea's for dinner, the food and the staff are amazing. Also enjoyed the Speakeasy Wine and Rum Bar, great local hangout.

Room Tip: We had one of the upper rooms and there are no balconies but the glass wall opens up to let in the breeze.

The Douglas House is a great place to stay in Key West. The staff was very friendly upon arrival/check in. Our room was huge, with a living room, kitchenette, big bedroom and big bathroom. The gardens are gorgeous and well kept. The location is great as it's about halfway between each side of town, not bad walking distance at all. The only drawback I saw was the hot tub has been closed out. Would have be great after a long day of sightseeing to go from the pool to the hot tub. That didn't stop us from having fun, but definitely was missed. I would enjoy going back!

Room Tip: If you would like to enjoy breakfast on a deck overlooking the gardens and pool, go for an upstairs location with balcony. It is probably also more quiet for sleeping.
