This was our first trip to Key West and we were looking for a romantic way to do it. We searched online and found The Mermaid & The Alligator amongst the numerous B&B's. The price, location, and amenities met our needs and we booked it online. We arrived approximately an hour early and were welcomed in as part of the family. We were given a tour of the house and grounds; and then ideas on where things were such as good restaurants and attractions. From that point on we truly enjoyed every minute we were there. The staff was attentive and very helpful, including making reservations and insuring our stay was excellent. The garden was beautiful and a great way to take in breakfast each morning; which alternated between savory and sweet. The garden also provided a location for us to store our bikes (we highly recommend renting or bringing your own, as we parked the car and used our bikes to get around everywhere). The accommodations in our room were comfortable and private. I could keep going on about everything we liked about this B&B; however, you'll have to just book your own stay to find out the rest.
