Robert, Thank you so much for taking to write this thorough and lovely review! It is paramount for all of us to make the Duval House feel like a home away from home. We could not be more happy that you found this to be the case during your time with us. We'll keep the beer cold and the pool heated in anticipation of your next visit. Until then, take care and, again, thank you for the kind words! Sincerely, John

Hi there, My name is John! Along with my two friends, Jeff and Greg, I acquired the Duval House in December 2018. We've heard many a tale of Turtle, however we never had the great pleasure of meeting the feline. We have our own cat, Millburn, who keeps an eye on the property these days. If you ever decide to return to Key West, we would love to have you by the property! Sincerely, John

As others have mentioned, there is $12 parking behind the property. The public pay lot in front of the property (on Duval) is not affiliated with the House and is more than twice the cost.

"Duval balcony not as updated but lets you see all the action, the rooms that face the courtyard are great as well-"
"If you want excitement, select a room facing Duval Street, If you want peace, quiet and garden views, select a room in the back."
"Room 9 in front has two beds. There are rocking chairs on the porch right outside for people watching."
"Room 27. Two bedrooms with king size beds,TV in each. Ground level."
"Dirty, noisy & unsafe rooms."
US$188 - US$475 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
