A perfect location in Key West, central to all of Old Town and within walking distance to everything. It felt secluded within the surrounding gardens, however the area construction noise was often disturbing.
A continental breakfast was adequate with pastries, fruit, coffee and juice, but we also visited area cafes for something more substantial.
The pool area was small and private with a secluded hot tub and walk-up bar. Iced tea was often provided in the early afternoon and a beach towel awaited our arrival to the lounge chairs.
The garden suite at $385 per night was adequate in size with limited dresser space, and a small bathroom including a jacuzzi tub/shower. A screen door would be a nice addition to enjoy the fresh air and surroundings and to keep out the bugs. It also had a somewhat private veranda. The foot traffic from the upstairs suite and even conversations from next door was often problematic.
The staff was friendly, but not overly personal and the other guests kept to themselves unlike a typical bed and breakfast.
