The rooms were very clean and accommodating. The kitchen was perfect size for lazy breakfast meals. With only 60 steps to the beach what could you want more? The owners were very nice and personable, making sure we were taking care of.

Virginia (and her assistant) was very pleasant to work with, as demonstrated by her responsiveness and her eagerness to ensure her guests a quality experience. The only complaint I have is the noise.

Thank you for your kind feedback, and I hope you except my apologies. The Island Suite is a ground floor apartment, while the Key West Suite is located directly above. It is true that the Key West Suite with its hardwood floors is the quieter apartment, and unfortunately, even though we have placed thick area rugs, noise may still travel... More
