My wife and I wanted to spend a week in Key West before I started my new job, so we read a lot of reviews, and liked what we read about OBD. After talking to JD on the phone, we decided that OBD sounded like a great place. OBD is an excellent value -- a nice guest house with a...

My wife and spent three nights here in mid November, on our first visit to Key West. We stayed in the Poolside room, which was quite nice other than the small bathroom where the toilet was located under a stairway - we each bumped our head a few times in using it. The pool was very pleasant, nice warm water....

Thanks for choosing OBD, so glad you enjoyed your stay. One of the things I personally love about our town is that it is so unique and can be a bit quirky! Glad you enjoyed our heated pool and most of the day the deck gets full sun. Next time if you prefer to have a room facing the pool...

I stayed at Oliva by Duval in the Porch room 11/5 - 11/12/2011. This was my second stay at Olivias and I was not disappointed. Rooms were clean and the beds comfy.

We had been searching for a place to stay that was off Duval but not to pricey. We found Olivia by Duval and booked the attic room for around $80 a night. It's right off Duval about midway down, still close enough to walk to anything you need. The room was perfect for my husband and I, clean and cozy....

We appreciate your business and happy you enjoyed your stay. We usually are one of the most affordable in Old Town. We are not fancy, and do not offer breakfast. We are clean, cozy, with great location! Hope to see you again.

We stayed in the conch republic cottage for five nights during fantasy fest and it proved to be a great choice. We have stayed at Olivia by Duval before and knew it was a well ran property.
