“Clean rooms, and Cool View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

The Southernmost House is very clean. My family and I had a magnificent view of the beach.
Though the floors were a little rusty, everything else was great. It had a really nice 'hang out' area near the back by the pool. The Southernmost House was also very 'historical'. Many famous people have been there, and I guess I could say that it's an AMAZING, and special hotel.

My husband and I just spent four nights in an ocean view suite at the Southernmost House. We both have traveled quite a bit throughout the US and in Europe and we both have never stayed at a hotel that paid such close attention to detail and cleanliness. We highly recommend the Southernmost House. It's in a great location on the "quiet" part of Duval Street but in reasonable walking distance to all the best attractions. The continental breakfast was great and usually consisted of yogurts, fruits, cheeses, breads, cereals, scones, orange juice, coffee, and teas. The House is just beautiful and well maintained. It has a great deal of history attached to the house and five presidents have stayed there. It should be noted that Key West is not known for their beaches. The Southernmost House has a little area of sand around their hammocks and near their pool, other than that people tend to sunbathe on beach chairs on a concrete deck that directly faces the ocean. I'm an avid beach goer and I thought I'd be bothered by this but I wasn't. The view and the sound of the ocean made up for it. When at low tide, you may be able to even swim from the deck. We'd highly recommend this hotel! We will be returning someday.

This a well managed and very well run Bed and Breakfast! The staff (especially Ted at the front desk) are very willing to answer questions or book other attractions around Key West for you!! He was very knowledgeble about te property and was a gracious host! The pool bar is well stocked( other than Canadian Rye Wiskey) and is next to the ocean! The breakfast is wonderful (no hot items though... like oatmeal or eggs) However you get fresh fruit, cheeses, a variety of pasteries and fresh squeezed orange juice. The pool area is quiet and was always kept clean, and right next to the ocean. The property has loads of history and is located at the end of Duval Street so makes it easy to walk to the action on Duval!! I have a hospitality management background so I tend to more critical and have a higher expecation than the average guest and this property did not disappoint me!! IT EXCEEDED OUR EXPECATIONS!!!
We will be back Southernmost House!!! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL 3 DAYS AND 2 NIGHTS!! With Gods' Blessings we will be back next April!! Julia

Room Tip: Ask for a cabana by the pool! Room 103 was perfect!!

Rooms are in a Victorian house or in an annex across the street as ours were - both buildings full of atmosophere. The main house is right on its private beach (though not useful for swimming) and has a very, very high quality pool and lounge areas - yet with only a couple dozen rooms you almost have them to yourselves. Bed and furnishings were 5 star. Right at the quieter end of Duval. Next door to a great casual restaurant on the beach with quality food and very close to Fred's Backyard, another recommended restaurant.

Negatives were extremely minor: only the tile floor I found a little tacky - but I think that might actually be historic. A bit of grout in the shower. A cable or electrical wire hung across our view of the ocean - which could easily be rerouted for a perfect view. The bar stools and table on the wrap-around deck could be changed out for something more comfortable like rocking chairs or regular wicker easy chairs.

Room Tip: Try to get an ocean view room. The main house is slightly more convenient.
