Since 2009 we have now stayed at Olivia by Duval 23 times and would not stay anywhere else. I love the location, private pool and employees that work here. Andrea is by far the best to work with, WE LOVE HER! We stayed from November 3rd until November 8th and were in the Poolhouse. Cant wait to come back in...

if you book in advance, be careful about what room s you are getting. We booked and paid in advance at the Keys visitor centre, on the way down the keys. We had seen lovely rooms on the website prior to booking. On arrival we were given what we could only describe as student accommodation. On the demand of our...

We were supposed to stay at the Wicker Guesthouse but ended up at Olivia by Duval. That worked out perfectly! We were greeted by the friendly faces on Andrea and Pat who congratulated us on our anniversary and hooked us up with drink coupons and suggestions on where to eat. We went to Key West for our honeymoon and this...

Inexpensive for Key West; plus located a few steps from Duval Street which is where "everything happens" at Key West. Perfect location Uptown by Duval and Olivia Streets. Special for me is that it is directly across the street from Croissants de France -- the best croissants on Key West per my Vegetarian friends -- and for "Vegan me" that...

Thank you for the very positive review, however I will mention this is not an adult only guesthouse. We are family friendly and not clothing optional. We purchased the guesthouse 2+ years ago and changed the policy at that time. Although we do see mostly adults, oru policies are family friendly. Hope to see you again soon,

I loved my stay here! The rooms were very spacious and nice. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The location of the hotel is great, maybe a 15 minute walk from mallory square and from the best bars there. I would definitely recommend this place.

2 years ago we stayed in the cottage shown with a pool in back. Room was beyond beautiful. The pool is clothing optional so not a place for kids. That room was on a little street making us feel like we were in a quaint little town. This trip was COMPLETELY different. Olivia has different locations. We were put in...

We are please to hear you would visit us again and we hope this will be sooner than 2 years. Olivia by Duval was previously clothing optional but that change in the summer of 2014.

I was pleasantly surprised that the Olivia by Duval was better than I expected. I don't always believe online reviews because some people just have unrealistic expectations, but I thought this place was very nice. And I used to work at similar small guesthouse inns in DC. This was my first time to Key West. I think this place was...

I cannot even begin to describe how incredibly terrible this facility is. There was so much black mold and leaking from the toilet on the floor that it seeped into our clothes and made all the guests staying there SICK as can be with sore throats and coughing. When we told the management about it they didn't even offer to...
