My friend and I were looking for a place to stay the weekend in Key West that had two beds in the same room- not as easy as it sounds. Douglas House had a studio loft option on the second floor, and we were glad to find it. The location, off Duval, is ideal and pretty quiet for Key West, at least. The room had a kitchenette and even a large balcony- perfect for enjoying the weather with coffee or wine. Staff was very helpful and knowledge and property was beautiful (although there is not a hot tub any longer, even though DH website says there is). At night, however, we discovered that the walls are paper thin. Both nights, awoken by the uh, "activities" let's say, of the couple next door- who had evidently shed all inhibitions. It was funny to a point, but I was hoping for undisturbed sleep, at least on the second night. If Douglas House invests in some sound insulation, I will be back.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for room not on the first floor.

Got here after a reservation at some apartment fell through. Floyd quickly helped us and showed us a great apartment with a kitchenette and a loft. We had a great stay there during fantasy fest. Very close to all the action. Parking is complementary.

We loved it! We showed up last minute and they accommodated us well. We had a cool room called the palm tree room or something like that and the decor was cute. The owner was courteous and friendly as well!

We planned a dive trip to Key West Florida. Everything was booked the weekend we were looking to visit Key West, so I called a travel agent friend to give me options because I ran out of choices. He recommended the Douglas House, so I booked it right away. I was so charmed when I found the location and the staff were very accommodating. The Douglas house has a nice pool, nice sitting garden outside and is close to shops and restaurants. It is close enough to the bars on Duvall St. to enjoy but far enough away that the noise isn't bothersome. A perfect place to stay!

This was our 4th trip to Key West so we were very familiar with the quality of bed and breakfasts in the area and the location. The positives first: The location was our favorite of all of our stays. It is located at the end of Duval street (a few blocks from Southernmost point). It was great access and we felt like we were more in the "local" area. The outside area is very spacious and well kept and the pool was clean. The first night we were greeted by the "kilt" manager and he was very personable and helpful.

The rooms were very "basic" but fairly clean. The towels were very tattered and the sheets very thin. The beds and pillows were below par. It was very odd that there was no breakfast, but we knew that going down there. It would be so easy to atleast offer wine/cheese in the evening or something similar to create mingling among the guest. After the first night, the front desk management were non chalant with our group. Not very attentive or interactive with our group.

This bed and breakfast is a diamond in the rough. It needs to be updated BADLY but has potential if renovations would occur.
