“All what we needed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

I have stayed there on June 2011 and I had really good experience. The room was what we were looking for: good place to sleep and to wash ourselves after all day of walking, sightseeing ,etc.
Room tiny but clean. Excellent location in a walking to all attractions. We enjoyed good self-made coffee on patio.

We stayed for 4 days in April and wish it could have been longer. The owners made us feel as comfortable as family and all of our neighbors were friends before we left. We couldn't have ask for a better place to spend our time while in Key West. The restaurants and general store in the neighborhood was convenient and fun. We loved Blue Heaven. We could walk everywhere we went and yet enjoy our quiet little neighborhood. I strongly recommend this place.

Our stay was for 3 days. Couldn't ask for a better location, 3 blocks from Duval, across the corner from Blue Heaven, an easy bike ride to Old Town and must-see sights. The owners are fantastic, so hospitable. The room was very clean and the property well maintained. Will certainly stay again.

We stayed here for a long weekend several years ago. The owner are very nice, the place was soooo clean and it was an easy walk to everything we wanted to see. We also were able to bring our little dog which was great!

We stayed here for 2 nights in March. This location is close enough to Duvall St., a short 5 minute walk but far enough from all the noise. I meet people that stayed on Duvall St and they said it was too noisy to sleep. People party till the early morning hours on Duval St.
Rooms were very clean and well kept and were offered at a great price. The only minor complaint would be that the rooms were really small but I got the impression most hotel rooms in Key West had similar size rooms. Owners were also helpful and friendly.
We went down to Sunset pier to watch the sunset one night, it gets crowded so you have to get there early if you want a table, order some food, drinks and relax while the band is playing.
The next morning we took a flight with Key West Seaplane Adventures. We took off from the Key West Airport and landed on the water at the Dry Tortugas National Park. This is the hardest Naional Park to get to, can only get there by float plane or boat. It was amazing!

We were two couples; we stayed in room 4 downstairs, our friends stayed in room 9 upstairs. The rooms are very small but clean & comfortable. Marie is so friendly & makes you feel at home. The price can't be beat & neither can the location - it's within walking distance of all the usual Key West spots. We ate breakfast at a couple of French places Marie recommended nearby & they were good. If you're needing spaciousness this is not your place; the bathroom is quite small, as is the shower, & there are window A/C units. It's not a lounging-around-all-day kind of room, & it's more of an inn or motel rather than a hotel. Nice little balcony or outdoor sitting area though, cute decorations, free nearby parking, & pet-friendly.
When we got home to Atlanta I realized I had left my pajamas in the room. I called the number, Marie answered the phone, & cheerily & promptly sent me back my PJs. Merci Marie, we enjoyed our trip to Key West & our stay at the Caribbean House!

I can't really compare this B&B to anything because it was the first time I have stayed in a B&B. I can however say that it was clean, tidy and comfortable with a very helpful and informative owner who made sure we were all right. It was close to all entertainment, bars and restaurants in the lower Key West and had many cafe breakfast venues around it. Parking is not easy but it seems that is a common complaint around the area. We did enjoy our stay and would stay again.

Room Tip: Just book on line we had no problems.
