I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to stay at the Ocean House in Islamorada. My wife and I were blown away by this resort. This was the first vacation we have had without our kids in 3 years and it was well worth the wait to spend it at the Ocean House. Let me start by saying that the rooms are perfect with a little kitchen and full size refrigerator. i have seen some reviews about the beds, but we thought they were comfortable. All the rooms have a porch with lounge chairs which we used for breakfast each morning. The grounds on the property are truly amazing and beautiful. About 30 steps from our room was a nice pool area with a couple of cabana's and a large thatched roof sitting area, there is also a nice hot tub by the pool. They also have bikes and couple of versa boards which can be used standing or sitting like a kayak. The beach area is perfect, we spent every evening enjoying the view. I would highly recommend this place because of everything mentioned above as well as a perfect staff that was there for anything you needed. We cannot wait to come back to this perfect little piece of paradise.

Thank you for your comments. While we value families, we remain an exclusive adult resort to give you the opportunity to have a quit and intimate getaway. You can relax at the pool or beach with little or no distraction. We have received both good and bad comments about the beds and we listened. All new latex hypoallergenic mattresses have been ordered and will be in place soon as well as all new pillows. Each guest will have both a hypoallergenic latex pillow as well as a new down filled pillow. Three of the rooms will also be upgraded from the current queen beds to kings giving us five king rooms. We're excited as we approach 2013 and look forward to seeing returning guests as well as meeting new ones.
Thanks again and hope to see you on a return trip.

This is going to be the most pampering, luxurious experience you can have in the Keys, in my opinion. We stayed in several bed and breakfasts/hotels in the keys and nothing compares to this. Ana and the staff anticipate every need and they thought of every detail down to the complimentary bath/shower items that are amazing! The grounds are beautiful and unlike other places on the island, its really the only property that is "typical" of island paradise living. Beds are comfortable, great food nearby, plenty of activities. There is no way you cannot relax!

Thank you for your comments. You mentioned our bath/shower amenities - they're by Malin + Goetz from New York who pride themselves for producing products using natural ingredients. They're also available online if you want to use them at home! I'm glad that you were able to wrap up your Keys trip by relaxing at Ocean House. We hope to see you return.
Happy Holidays.

We normally travel two or three times a year to small, out-of-the way boutique hotels in the Carribbean and Mexico. So this was the first time in 10 years we've gone anywhere that didn't require a passport and/or a ride in a small plane or boat. And yes, we were a little nervous about what we'd find in Islamorada and Ocean House.
The title of this review "Fabulous Little Place" pretty much says it all. It is, at the same time, both elegant and down to earth. From Ed, to Anna, to Rod...the service was both personal and gracious. They're genuinely nice people doing what genuinely nice people do, which is take good care of their guests. We left feeling that we'd met people we'd love to see again...more because of who they were than their service while we were there.
The rooms are uniformly very nice but it is the LANDSCAPING that is nothing short of exceptional. You know immediately that a lot of money has been spent in those gardens and it's just as obvious that they are beautifully maintained. If you visit Ocean House, there's a "story" about them and it's worth hearing.
Bottom line...Ocean House has now made our top-three destinations list. We will most definitely be back at least once a year. But we will fly into Ft. Lauderdale next time instead of Miami. Trust me, the 20 extra minutes of drive time is worth it to avoid Miami International and the surrounding traffic.

Room Tip: Two corner top rooms are the best...but all are very nice.

We stayed in the Ocean Dawn room and had a perfect view East to see the sun rise from our bed. Nice breakfast, well appointed rooms with full kitchen. Full sized fridge is a nice touch. There is a cook top and pots / pans, but we didn't use them. The super friendly staff goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome and taken care of.
Landscaping is amazing and perfectly groomed.

Room Tip: upper floor may be a bit quieter and better view over the landscaping.
