The room and staff were lovely. No pool, no ice or vending machines and no beach access at all. The air conditioning in our cottage was a window unit too small to cool the room. We actually bought a fan too get through the night.

When we chose this place, we didn't realize that our friend was only 2 minutes away and our other friend's canvas shop was just across the street. Oh so convenient. We were in Cottage #5 and it was clean with a king sized bed. Everything we needed was there and if you needed more room for friends they have a...

The cottages looked cute and clean on the internet and had pretty good reviews, so we booked a cottage for a two night stay. We arrived in the evening and the office was dark and locked. We waited for a while hoping someone would show up, but no one did and no one answered the phone when we tried to...

We were 3 adults requiring a room for one night and were booked into No 1, which had a separate double bedroom and pull-out bed settee in the living area. It also had a super little front porch where you could sit out with morning coffee, or an evening beverage, and watch the goings-on. Whilst small, the unit was very...

We found this a perfect midway jumping off point for exploring the Keys. The cottages and property are adorable the hammock chairs are perfect for enjoying morning coffee the tiki area was a nice place to sit in the evening for a snack. The service was warm and laid back we loved CK "cabin kitty" the resident cat the cute...

We stayed in Marathon for a night and thought that Tropical Cottage has a really nice location. It was very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. Breakfast was definitely not what we expected so we ended up going somewhere else. But it was relatively okay for the price. They could definitely clean up the bathroom a little better.

I didn't go to the Florida Keys sit in a room. The cabins are quaint and clean. We had cabin #9. Nice sitting area outside for coffee in the am or cocktails in the evening. We enjoyed it! We'll go back for sure

Chalet No 11, not as per photos and details, fell short on Bed & TV plus the mice visited at night. Unit was cleaned and freshened after 2 nights, price is OK but lacked facilities. Great Pub/Restaurant within 5 minutes walk.

If you are looking for a charming quiet place to stay with old Florida appeal, you may enjoy yourself here. The Ritz it is not, but we were very comfortable in cottage 4 with a king bed and indoor bath. Can use a few minor repairs like a loose faucet and the knob on one lamp was missing. Staff was...

Main house had a hollow core door between rooms with noisy neighbors. The cottages may be better but I would not recommend this place at any price When I checked in the paper work said " don't move " know I know why
