Room was very clean. Environment was very relaxing and private. The only issues we had were the blinds didn't appear to create much privacy while in the room as it was easy to see in the side of the blinds. Also the breakfast selection was cold and limited. However for proximity to Duval and price it was the best deal on the island.

Great time!

We booked the Gecko Grotto room, and really enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and generally nice. It is small, but a great place to lay your head at night. It is directly across from the continental breakfast area, so it could get noisy before we were ready to get up in the mornings. Also, the walls are pretty thin. We were able to turn the window unit air conditioner to the "On" position and drown most exterior noise with a/c white noise.

The pool is very small--more like a large spa, but it was clean and cool. The property, in general, was well kept, but there were areas that could have been maintained a little better.

The continental breakfast was by far the most underwhelming part of the stay. There was no sugar for the coffee on our first day and nobody in the property's on-site office to ask for more. There were limited choices of pastries, a few cups of fruit, and yogurt.

Nice intimate and friendly place to stay,just enough to start the day with their breakfast. Room was nice and clean but the aircon was a little bit noisy if left on at night.Thepool was a little bit cold,but once you got in it was nice.The only problem ,we thought,was going to Whitehead street to book in and then hand your keys in when you leave

The pictures are done well. This is a decent place to stay. I was rather disappointed with the pool. It is very small and was VERY dirty the whole time I was there. I even tried taking the leaves out myself. For a Holiday weekend $280 a night was towards the lower end in price. The place is very close to Mallory Square and 2 blocks from Duval. However, to check in you have to go a block off duval st on the 1000 block. The house is in the 300 block. Not very convenient.

My towel rack was broke and popped off the wall. The shower curtain fell down and we had to put it back. The AC unit had to run the whole time to keep the room cold. There was no unit in the bathroom and the sun shined directly inside in the morning. Would I stay here again? Probably not unless I got it very a very good price.

We enjoyed our stay. It was 2.5 blocks from Dual. Very tropical. Our room was a perfect location on the property, in the pool area, so breakfast was outside our door. Room was tiny but bed very comfy and a fridge and microwave were included. Breakfast the first day was only bread and buns and yogurt w/ coffee and oj. We were out there by 9:15 but was rather cleaned out. Nicely done on Friday, full breakfast of bacon, eggs,sausage and potatoes. The website I had seen advertised wine and cheese at happy hour but that wasn't there. Maybe that too only shows on weekends.
Property mgt. office is at the other end of the island, so quite a long hot walk if you are able to snag a parking spot when you first arrive.

This great little place somehow has received some bad reviews. Ignore them! It is a true delight and a wonderful deal. The location is walking distance to places like Mallory Square, the Green Parrot, Audubon House, and Duval Street. There is a fantastic complimentary breakfast set out in the patio area every day with yogurt mixed with freshly cut fruit and fresh fruit bowls made on site, granola, bagels, hard boiled eggs, juice and coffee. There is a delightful small pool with a waterfall and spa-like jets - perfect for relaxing. The patio area and room were immaculate with lots of little extra touches. The place is very conducive to interacting with the other guests since the pool and breakfast set-up are by a small covered area with café style tables and chairs. And there is a cool cat to greet the guests! From now on when I go to Key West this is where I will try to stay, (but it's already sold out on my next known trip in July.)

Myself and my daughter stayed here for 2 days. It was the most pleasant and fun trip her and I have ever taken and we travel quite a bit together. The room was very clean, super comfortable, the bed was amazing and so cozy. They serve a continental breakfast
daily which we really appreciated. My room was diagonal of the pool, right across from the breakfast area and on the 1st floor. It was the perfect room. We'll definitely be back and will most definitely book the same room.



Thank you Garden House

Clean room, pretty much as I expected. Although it appeared room was being prepared for renovation, pictures missing from wall, marks where pictures were, drywall repairs not complete in bathroom...room was comfortable and did what it needed to do. Trouble finding parking short term parking to unload (could stop long enough to get suitcases unloaded) ended up walking 5 blocks with luggage. Would stay here again.

Great Stay!

Loved being at the Gecko Grotto. The space was nice and clean. I just wish the breakfast had something warm like eggs or waffles.

We loved the Garden House, the room was clean location was perfect. only thing that would be helpful is if there was a nice chair in the room. neither my husband nor I like to lay in bed if were not sleeping, so a chair would of made it nice and maybe some instant coffee in our rooms for the early risers. other than that it was perfect! everyone was so nice and we for sure will come again and stay with Key West vacation rentals.

The room is very small and needs some repairs. It is also noisy from 7:30-10 a.m. as the breakfast is served outside the room near the pool area. The continental breakfast is simple but adequate. The location is excellent...within walking distance to everything. Parking is at a premium and hard to find. I would recommend the property because of location only

The room worked for us. Clean and comfortable. Mini fridge great. Suggestions..bathroom needs better shower light and more counter space and one more luggage cart. Continental breakfast was nice. Overall enjoyable stay.

We enjoyed our stay at the Garden House. It unique atmosphere was nice. The room was smaller than we thought it would be but it worked for us and was clean. The description of the property is somewhat misleading.

Off my bucket list!

Wonderful. The staff at Key West Vacations were outstanding! The Garden House was small, but very private. Great location and within walking distance to everything! We will definitely stay again!

Superb location at a fair price. This an older property but is pretty well maintained. Breakfast was served on schedule and usually, though not always, kept refreshed in a timely manor. Room was clean. Pool was small but appropriate in size to the property and generally though not always kept clean. Very big deal in Key West - off street parking was available. I'd definitely consider staying a 2nd time.
