I stay aboard my boat for three weeks, although this not a full fledged marina but an inn in the middle of Largo sound, the facilities were perfect, a little sand beach with palm trees make you feel in the middle of paradise. There is an Enterprise that will deliver your car. Many restaurant within 5 miles and a Publix. The most charming hostess with make you feel right at home.

Stayed February 2012

We stayed at Tarpon Flats twice in late February, one night on our way to Key West and one night on our return trip. We are from Colorado and our time at Tarpon Flats felt like an escape from reality! The rooms are quite large and well appointed and had a full kitchen and ice maker. The location is close to restaurants, etc.

Our favorite part was the little island of beach by the water, complete with hammock and a killer view. This was an especially nice place for those with small furry friends. Lovely!

The manager, Piera, was friendly and helpful. We stayed with another couple and they had a wonderful time too! We would definitely recommend this place to others!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room upstairs because of the balcony and the view.

We recently came to Tarpon Flats with another couple. It was a delightful surprise and we loved it. We sat out on an area that reminded us of Gilligan’s Island, complete with sandy beach, hammock, grill, chairs…and a bottle of wine. The best part was the breeze and the view of sparkling waters and sailboats.
There are only four rooms, and we stayed in one on the ground floor that was designated for pets. It was spacious and clean and convenient to the pool and our own “Gilligan’s Island”.
Our friends stayed upstairs and that room had, like ours, a full kitchen, but they also had a full ice maker. The view from the balcony was delightful and we enjoyed visiting and enjoying an adult beverage.
When we booked the room, we were told that even tho it was called a “b and b”, they didn’t serve breakfast. However, we brought our own, and with the full kitchen, it was actually wonderful to just sleep in and eat at our own leisure.
We stayed at Tarpon Flats on our way to and from Key West. It is a great “stop over” and we will certainly do it every time we make the trip to Key West. The second night we stayed there was on my 69th birthday. We learned that Piera, the manager, also shared March 1 as her birthday, so she promised to get something special for me…and boy, did she! We discovered a chilled bottle of champagne, cheese, crackers, fruit and flowers, and a Tarpon Flats mug waiting for us when we checked in! It didn’t take us long to get to our favorite spot…”Gilligan’s Island” to enjoy our goodies. She joined us and even had treats for our little 7 pound dachshund, Dixie.
My husband and I previously owned the Chez Amis Bed and Breakfast in Annapolis, Maryland, for 17 years, so we understand how important it is to have good service, clean rooms, friendly staff, and great location. We found that Piera has done a wonderful job in all these areas. We will definitely return when we are on our way to Key West. Mickie and Don Deline

We were on a spur of the moment get-away, when we practically stumbled on this place. It was a lucky find. The location is great, just off the beaten path on the water; close enough to hop on US1, but far enough to have a little privacy. The room was clean, spacious, and well-appointed; there's even a handy little kitchen. They offer use of a set of bicycles or kayaks and there's a small pool. There's a little hammock hanging under a tree by the water. That's a definite must for any stay here. The manager was very friendly and helpful. My only regret is my stay was not longer; will definitely try go go back.

We were so sad to have to leave this near perfect gem of an inn. Located on the waterfront with it's own marina and beach, you can imagine that your on your own private island.

With free kayaking on the calm Key Largo Sound, why go anywhere else?

Room Tip: Take the upper floors for the view

My wife and I stayed here in early January and will certainly come back. It's a lovely, private place on its own private sandy point facing the Gulf. We loved our spacious room with kitchen. We did use the bikes for errands but never even got around to using the free kayaks. A very good value and highly recommended.
