I had booked my room through a third party, and weeks before my trip received a cancellation notice from the hotel. I called the hotel directly. The friendly staff person explained that they'd had a problem with my credit card and had no other option but to cancel. She re-booked

Dear Miamic, Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such a glowing and detailed review. We are glad to hear that we were just what you needed after your sailing trip. We're also glad to hear you enjoyed your accommodations at our guesthouse. I wish we had known about the sink stopper. It is a brand new vessel sink and the stopper is a model that opens when you press down on it...there is no lever to lift it or close it. You simply push down to close it, and press down for it to pop back up. When it was first installed, I asked the plumber how it worked, because I couldn't figure it out right away. Going forward, we will be sure to inform guests of the stopper, as we escort them to their room, and hopefully no one else will encounter this situation. But, again, thank you for bringing it to our attention. We hope to see you again soon.

My husband and I stayed at L'habitation for one night in April and we keep trying to make excuses to go back as soon as we can. Nina was very accommodating to our messed up travel itinerary. She even upgraded our room since there was one open, at no cost. The guest house has

Dear ashebm, Thank you so much for sharing your experience at L'Habitation Guesthouse. We appreciate your wonderful feedback, and love that you want to come back again. Since you were here in April, we've made even more upgrades to our breakfast offerings (we've added boiled eggs).And, many of our rooms have been upgrded with new furniture & shower curtains have been replaced by new glass shower doors in all but three rooms. The last of the three should be done very soon. Thank you too for the kind remarks about the staff, and me personally. We love having guests that recognize and appreciate our hard work. We hope you will find an "excuse" to visit us again soon. Better sooner, than later, right?

Dear Fljudy, Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts about our guesthouse. We enjoyed having you as our guests, and we are very glad to hear that our recommendations for enjoying our island paradise were on point. Thank you for all the kind words about our staff, and of me personally. I'll be sure Beth and everyone else, sees your review. It sounds like the birthday celebration in beautiful Key West was enjoyed, and that your stay with us was a big part of what you enjoyed about our little island. Again, thank you. When our guests take the time to tell us how much they enjoyed their stay, well, it makes it all worthwhile. Because, we all really do want every guest to come to know and love Key West, and our guesthouse as much as we do!

It was a fantastic place to stay. The location is perfect as it is close enough to walk to all the places such as Mallory Square and the Southernmost Point. Nina, and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and I loved how they personalized our stay with a bottle of

Dear Robert G, I am so happy to hear that your "wife's birthday celebration was perfect"! Getting out on the water, especially for a sunset sail, is one thing I recommend to anyone visiting Key West. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience while a guest at L'Habitation. We are so glad that you and your wife enjoyed the wine, and that you found our breakfast, our coffee (from Cuban Coffee Queen), and our Happy Hour to be nice additions to your stay. We hope you will visit us again soon. It was our pleasure having you as our guests.
