We stayed at the guest house of the Southernmost House right across the street. Based on the price of the room I was expecting historic charm with luxury. While you can't beat the location of the place and the beautiful pool, the guesthouse view is that of the back of the beach cafe. When we wanted to enjoy the oceanview we had to take in the overwhelming smell of grease right in front of us and of partiers from the bar late at night. Our room seemed to have the "charm of old" based only on the old tile that was stained with rust and never seemed clean. Even in slippers my feet just felt dirty the whole time I was in the room. Our sheets had a large stain in the middle of the bed when we arrived and there were curly hairs (from where I can only guess) and stains all over the pads on the room chairs. On the 2nd day the sheets were changed but the old ones were dumped in the middle of the floor and no one ever came to get them until the next day. We had one small bar of soap that we kept trading from shower to sink.
The real home seemed nice but I never saw the rooms. We only came across for breakfast which was definitely continental and the tablecloths were always dirty. The pool is lovely but I found most patrons sitting on chairs without a towel since clean towels seemed hard to find and only if you asked for them. While in Key West we checked out a few less pricey locations that were wonderful. If location is the only thing important to you then stay here. Otherwise i would advise investigating a few other choices. This was just not worth the price we paid.
