Awesome, one block from Duval Street the overall experience here was perfect. Breakfast every morning was delicious the staff friendly and accommodating. We stayed in cottage 4 it was as perfect as everything else. We can’t wait to go back. I would never even consider another hotel. The wine selection is out of this world so do yourself a favor and stay at this Key West treasure.

Expected Pleasure

Didn't know what to expect but found a first class operation with a friendly and helpful staff. The grounds are well appointed and my wife especially liked to wander through the gardens after breakfast. Breakfast was varied and enjoyable every day. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Nice hotel. Centrally located.

Pros: Location.
Cons: Parking is very limited.
Location: Great location. Everything was within walking distance.
We got in late at night and everything ran smoothly, as directed for late check in. The staff is very friendly. Wish we were staying longer than planned, but I will definitely return.location

What a wonderful surprise!

Pros: Such a comfortable room - great bed - every little luxurious option - LOVED the wine-tasting room, and the breakfast was excellent
Cons: PERFECT!
Location: walking distance to great dining -Blue Heaven (our all time favorite), SaraBeth's for a great breakfast, any bar or eating establishment on Duval
We did not know what to expect - found a hidden wonderland one block off of Duval Street! A/C was cold (needed in Key West in summer); staff was charming, and the room was over the top excellent; comfy bed, modern, well-lit bathroom, front porch with view of the garden - AND a wine tasting room that was such fun! We will go back soon - and tell all of our friends who plan to visit Key West
