“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

This is a wonderful little gem that exceeded our expectations! We stayed there January 31-Feb 3 and wished we could have stayed longer. We thought we were checking into a suite in a house with a garden view. How delightful to find our "Garden Suite" was really our own little, 3 room, "cottage-like" abode with a private entrance a beautiful, tropical garden right outside our door. The suite was immaculate, beautiful, and comfortable with high quality furnishings and linens. From the first contact before we arrived and throughout our stay, Capt. Steve was very responsive and helpful. He pick us up at the airport and since we arrived at lunchtime, before the suite was ready, he dropped us off at Salute Restaurant just a few blocks away. How convenient to have a great restaurant so close by - we ate there 3 times in 3 days! We used the bicycles to ride to the grocery store, beverage store, Higgs Beach, Smathers Beach, and around town. We also appreciated the cooler, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas that we could use. Although Kayla was out of town, Capt. Steve treated us to a slice of her delicious key lime pie before we departed. We highly recommend the Atlantis House to any couple looking for a romantic get-away and quiet oasis in Key West.

Thanks for your lovely review. Our goal is to make every guest feel at home and as cozy and comfortable as possible so that their experience can be a relaxed, laid back, convenient and memorable one. Whether we are picking you up at the airport or making restaurant recommendations, it's all about making your vacation all that you hoped it would be. We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed the Garden suite as much as you did as well as the garden area just outside the door. We feel that providing the bicycles, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella and coolers takes the worry out of spending a day at the beach! We're happy that you took advantage of all that! It was a pleasure having you as our guests and look forward to hosting you again in a future visit!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Master Suite at the Atlantis House from January 27-30. It is a very large suite with a great tub and shower, I also enjoyed doing my hair and makeup in the area with a large seat and great lighting in the bathroom. They have the room set up with speakers to play music from the television or if you want to hook in your ipod/iphone. The backyard deck is a little slice of oasis with beautiful landscaping and great seating. We were lucky enough to have a slice of Kayla's key lime pie which truly was the best on the island (and believe me, we ate it at every restaurant). Although we were unable to meet Kayla during our stay, Captain Steve was more than a gracious host. I highly recommend using the bikes available to get around town as everything is relatively close but still far enough away from the craziness of Duval St. Another couple celebrating a birthday was staying in the Garden Suite at the same time and they were simply lovely to meet also!

We booked Captain Steve for an eco-tour boat ride and it was by far the favorite part of our vacation. The water was beautiful and Boca Grande is worth the trip, seashells galore!

We felt as though we were staying with a friend who really cared about our Key West experience, I would definitely recommend the Atlantis House for accomodations in Key West.

Thanks so much for your taking the time to write a review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed the Master suite. We do our best to provide our guests with as much of the comforts of home as possible! We also try to provide the little extras that make the Master suite so special. The makeup vanity takes advantage of the great natural lighting from the huge skylight above and of course with 17 ft. vaulted ceilings, good speakers make the sound quality of the TV/music really grand! In the tropics you don't want to miss any outdoor time and the deck area is the perfect spot to relax, soak in the sun or nap away a lazy afternoon. But of course the best thing to do by far in Key West is to get out on or in the water the eco-trip to Boca Grande is a great way to do both especially given Capt. Steve's love of sharing his knowledge of mariculture and Key West history. We hope that we'll see you again for a future visit and rest assured Kayla will be here next time waiting with a slice of her amazing Key Lime Pie!

Captain Steve and Kayla have outdone themselves with this masterpiece of a pristine of a home with stunning garden directly across the street from the Atlantic Ocean. Our Garden Room was a romantic masterpiece. The backyard garden, where we relaxed and talked into the wee hours was landscaping out of BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS, in fact, I can state unequivocally, that is the way we felt about the whole package deal. Beyond all of that, Steve and Kayla are the best inn-keepers and we welcome you to contact us should you visit Northern California and Wine Country in the summer of 2014. We'd love to hang out again. We'll email you some recommendations on where and how to travel to and through San Francisco into Wine Country and back soonest. Otherwise, we're all for doing a house swap. Thank you again for a magical experience. Krista and I will continue to recommend the Atlantis House to all friends, family and associates traveling to Key West. Thank you!

Thanks so much for the great review! It was so much fun meeting and spending time with you. We have always prided ourselves on not only making our guests feel at home but in presenting our very best to them whether it's with Steve's special touches in the tropical garden or Kayla's exotic eye for interior design, so we truly appreciate that you enjoyed our little piece of paradise! Don't be surprised if we look you up when we come to Northern California so we can pick up where we left off!

Captain Steve and Kayla were wonderful hosts for our stay. Not only did Captain Steve pick us up and return us to the airport, but he invited us into his home to meet his dog Nemo and his lovely wife Kayla who offered us a glass of red wine and a smile. Our room was beautifully decorated in rich colors, we stayed in the Garden Suite with a microwave, fridge, coffee which was very useful. The location is quiet and right across from Higgs Beach. The property offers bicycles that you can help yourself to, we utilized them to get everywhere on the island. Key West is only 3-miles across, you do not need any more than the bicycle to get around. Salute restaurant is in walking distance for a great meal when you don't want to bike, as is Sandy's Cuban Cafe for the best coffee on the island. Thank you to Atlantis House for a wonderful stay, we would recommend to friends, hands down!

Thanks so much for your nice review! We're to happy to hear that you enjoyed the Garden suite. Though it is the smaller of our two rooms, it has cozy but exotic feel! We want all of our guests to feel at home and we think the complimentary bikes allows them to see Key West like a local and in "island style". We're pleased that you took advantage and explored on them! Nearby, Salute and Sandy's Cafe are certainly local favorites and we're sure you fit right in! It was our pleasure (Nemo included) meeting you and having you as our guests and we sincerely hope to see you again soon!

So I've been to Key West at least 10 times in the past decade. My most memorable trip out of these was the most recent one, thanks to Captain Steve and Kayla. I decided to treat my husband for his 33rd birthday to a quick weekend getaway at Atlantis House. I was sold by the reviews, and thankfully they were spot on! We arrived around 2 pm and were checked in immediately. Greeted by the warm and welcoming couple, we entered the gorgeous Master Suite bedroom, tastefully decorated, equipped with a super comfy and massive bed, a kitchenette, a Jacuzzi, vanity sinks and delectable homemade treats that Kayla baked herself. We immediately felt at home, especially as it was stocked with everything you can need beyond the essentials. They also were thoughtful enough to play some soothing music in the background which made us feel like we stepped into a zen-like temple! Atlantis House is steps away from Higgs Beach, where you can witness the most gorgeous sunsets. Close enough to Duval without sacrificing privacy.They also provide you with complimentary bikes to venture around the island easily, although we opted for mopeds to get around quicker. Now for the icing on the cake - Captain Steve and Kayla are also chefs! To celebrate my husband's birthday, I went for the dinner offer advertised on their site. For a very reasonable price, you can get fresh catch or lobster depending on what Captain Steve managed to fish out of the ocean (hence the guaranteed freshness). You get the option of eating outside (weather permitting), in your room or at their place. We picked our room which further enhanced the home feeling. What an incredible experience! From the exquisite appetizers and soups to the freshest most delicious lobster entrees accompanied with tasty sides, only to finish off with the best homemade key lime pie we had on the island -not to mention the top notch service and highly artistic presentation of every single dish. Our very 1st night and they have succeeded in turning my husband's 33rd into a grand event so effortlessly on my part. I am ever so grateful. Do yourself a favor and give this place a shot. You will also make friends with 2 wonderful people too!

Room Tip: Master Suite is bigger.

My husband & I decided to last minute drive down to the keys for a part of our vacation in South Florida. Steve & Kayla were so accommodating to us! I can not recommend Atlantis House enough! We felt completely at home the entire time & Steve & Kayla went above & beyond our expectations. The Master suite is very large & cozy & the garden area is beautiful & relaxing. Kayla's key lime pie was the best we've ever had!!

And you don't have to go but out to guest deck to take in the tropical charm of Key West. We wish you the very best with your new addition and hope that you will come and stay with is again when you're ready for a break from the little one and some more of Kayla's Key Lime Pie!

Steve and Kayla were extremely welcoming, and the Garden Suite was quiet, cozy, and very comfortable. We loved that it was tucked away in a quieter section of Key West, right on the bike path, and right across from the pier where we were able to enjoy the sunsets. We made great use of the bikes that were provided for us to get around town.

After just a few days in Key West, we were already referring to the Atlantis House as "home". We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for the lovely review. We have made every effort to create an atmosphere of calm and relaxation in a contemporary design and we are so pleased that you were comfortable and happy with your accommodations. The Master suite has an open airy feel due to it's 17ft vaulted ceilings and spacious square footage (over 650 sq.ft) which is nearly DOUBLE the size of the average room in Key West. Just to clarify, statistically, the AVERAGE room rate in Key West, which gets only a 3 star rating (we average 5), is $254/night. So in actuality, our $250/night rate for the 5 star Master Suite is a bargain in comparison. We genuinely enjoyed having you as or guests and hope to see you again for future visits to Key West.
