Everything was fine. We were perfectly taken care of, the service as good and always friendly.
Good advice for restaurants and bars was given. Everything was clean and in a very good cindition. I would go there again any time. It`right off Duval Street, far enough away to be quiet, but close enough to be right on the action if you want to.

The room was large with comfortable queen size bed. Coffee was provided by the pool which has many tables to sit and enjoy your coffee. The area was quiet but you were close enough - that you could walk to the Hemingway House, Truman House and the places on Duval Street. Parking is provided a block away. We had brought our own breakfast items so I did not notice what places were nearby for breakfast.

House and room were very nice, be it priced a little to high. Crew was very accommodating and helpful. Room was clean and well taken care of. But my wife and I are what we call vertically challenged and the bed was high. Nice garden and pool. Would not take their advise and go on the Sunset Dinner Cruise. Over priced and boat was over booked. No seats and cold food.

Our bedroom was so small we couldn't pass each other in the room. There was no space for suitcases. My husband had to put his in the closet and I moved the microwave to the floor and put mine on the chest where the microwave had been. Tiny bath and, again, no place for anything larger than a toothbrush. No desk, no chair (no room) no coffee maker and no breakfast. All this for nearly $300 per night. Room was clean.

Room Tip: Choose someplace else

We stayed at the Douglas House for two nights. The room was just off Duval street and was very quiet. A very good location. The Pool and Garden areas were very welcomed sights after lots of walking and seeing the sights. We had the Peach Palm Room, which was a nice but the Bed was a bit too soft and when one person turned over the other knew about it. The price was high, but that's pretty much how all accommodations are in Key West.

Room Tip: Garden Rooms seem to be very nice.

This place is very central but also very peaceful and quiet which makes it a perfect location if you want to get some well deserved sleep after partying all night. The welcome we got at the reception should have been more enthusiastic. We had driven down from Miami and were tired so a warmer welcome would have been appreciated. Instead the welcome is quite routine and non-personal. Our cottage bedroom was very nice and clean with lots of patio space in front for lazying around in privacy. Great having free parking just up the road. And not to mention of course the 3min walk around the corner to Hemingway's house. Amazing to think that this guesthouse if just around the corner from cray Duval Street. It's so quiet and relaxing. Only the cocks crowing in the morning are the only disturbances!

Room Tip: The cottage at the back of the garden is very nice but the AC unit outside the bedroom window is dis...
