“Perfect Key West B&B”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

I think we really lucked out on this one! You can't beat the location. Clean, comfortable room, we were on the first floor just off the front door and had the porch all to ourselves. The shower stall was really small (and I'm not a very large person) but that was my only complaint. Cozy back yard and garden with jacuzzi/mini pool to relax in. People upstairs were heavy walkers but otherwise a nice quiet B&B, you can walk to everything, good amenities, loved the owner. Breakfast included. If you get there after 6PM you need a code to get in as the staff leaves. Will definitely stay there next time. Mario the house cat added to the experience!

Breakfast, a cute garden and a great spot to relax—that's our idea of a Key West vacation! Glad you felt at home with us, Elaine, and we'd love to have you back soon. Until next time, thanks for the wonderful review. We know Mario will be happy to see you when you're back in town!

Very comfortable and clean operation with competitive rates. Friendly owner and staff. Free pick-up and delivery from ferry terminal. Solid breakfast. Perfectly located with Hemmingway Home at one corner of the block and classic Irish pub on the other one. We use B&B's all the time... this is one of the good ones.

Booked the Seascape based on generally very positive reviews and ratings. We had to double-check Tripadvisor to ensure we were actually in the same hotel as our experience in no way aligned with most reviews.

The room: horrible, rancid smell emanating from the dresser (I went to put clothing in the dresser and just about threw up); room is small with no space even for a chair; tiny washroom, barely room to turn around; black mold on grout in shower area and on bottom of shower curtail; it took 2 and a half minutes for hot water to reach the sink with the tap full on (couldn't believe it....so I timed it). Air conditioner was located over the bed and sounded like a jet engine. Only saving grace of noisy aircon was that it drowned out the late night competing music from the Irish Pub and from garden parties at the nearby Hemingway House.

TV remote only worked if you held it within 2 feet of the vintage television.

The "heated pool/spa" is basically a large hot tub. Those expecting to "swim" in a pool should look elsewhere.

Breakfast was average.... continental. Breakfast tables could stand a wipe down once in a while.

Staff was indifferent at best. No "hellos" or "welcome" when we arriving. No offer of town info or map (had to ask); When we asked for recommendation of good seafood restaurant the response was: "down by the harbour there are lots of seafood restaurants". Thanks for that!

Positives: Well, the bed was comfortable. Very close to Duval Street.

Overall, not a very enjoyable experience. For 1/3rd the price this B&B might be "okay". For the price, there must be far better B&Bs in Key West.

We're very sorry to learn of your disappointment. Making our guests feel welcome is one of our greatest joys, and as such the indifference you described is completely out of character for us, as is the state of your room. We wish we could have moved you to a different suite during your visit, but we still want to make this right for you. If you'd like to discuss this further, please don't hesitate to reach out. Until then, thank you for taking the time to voice your concerns. Your words will only make us better.

The Seascape is a beautiful little B & B located a stone's throw from Hemingway's home in Key West. Our room was comfortable, clean and charming and had a beautiful area to sit outside and relax on our own chaise lounges. An excellent breakfast was included with the room. The staff was pleasant and helpful. My husband and I would definitely stay there again.

This well kept, centrally located B&B was the perfect choice for us. With only 6 rooms, we rarely ran into other guests and it felt like "our home" in Key West. When we did run into other guests, it was like chatting with the neighbors. We found the Inn itself very well kept. Being historic and in an island locale I was prepared for the inevitable low water pressure, mildew smells, etc. I was pleasantly surprised with Seascape. The water pressure is lower than at home but sufficient to rinse shampoo out of a woman's long hair, and what more do you need. There was no mildew or must smell, no peeling paint, and sufficient outlets.

Having covered what was "not wrong" with a historic B&B, on to what it does have. First and foremost, helpful, polite and accommodating staff...from the new owner to the gentlemen who came to clean the pool every morning and every one in between. Ask the desk to arrange shuttle service to and from the airport. We discovered this when we arrived and it was a much better price and nicer driver than the taxi service we used.

I was a little nervous about staying in a room that opened right on the patio and spa, but with only 6 guest we only ran into others enjoying the spa one time and there was never any noise from that area that disturbed us. We also did not experience any issue with the Irish bar next door producing too much noise, albeit we were there from Sunday to Thursday so didn't experience it on weekend night.

There is a bountiful continental breakfast with hard boiled eggs, yogurt, an abundance of fresh fruit, fresh delivered bagels, toast, croissants, waffles and danish. Plus coffee, orange juice and champagne, if mimosas appeal to you. All this is served in a charming covered lanai and there is a small t.v. if you want to catch up on the headlines over breakfast.

There are sodas, water and even wine available to the guest 24 hours with a jar for suggested donations. There are also large, fluffy beach towels in a basket for guests to use. Very helpful to not have to pack those!

The Seascape is conveniently located, charming, well kept and accommodating. Plus is was quiet and private when we were there. It was perfect for us.

It was a pleasure to make you feel at home—of course, it's easy to unwind with a nice view, fluffy beach towels and a mimosa or two! Thanks for making us a part of your trip, and for sharing your detailed feedback. We'd love to welcome you back again next year!

My daughter and I stayed at the Seascape in mid January. The most important thing to me is a clean, comfortable room. Of course, location is important too. All of those needs were met and the breakfast was a great start to our day.

I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for that B&B experience while visiting Key West. I was in need of transportation to the ferry to get home. The staff kindly arranged a free shuttle for us. We even enjoyed waking up to the roosters! I love Key West!

This B&B was one of the few with last minute availability and located only 1 block off Duval. The reviews were excellent though so we decided to give it a shot. It ended up being perfect! This small B&B has a large hot tub on the deck area. Our room had French doors that opened up to the deck and hot tub with chairs for sitting and lounging. The lobby had a wine cooler and a small outdoor deck attached for breakfast. Each day fresh bagels, fruit, yogurt, cereal and pasteries were served. Everyone that works at this B&B is kind and helpful. They gave us a map of the island and told us about their favorite restaurants and spots. We rented bikes from the B&B for an addition $12 and then rode the bikes 2 miles away to the Southern Most Point, which is where some of the beaches are. Parking is an extra $10 a day unless you find street parking, which we did right out front. I would highly recommend staying here and would definitely return!!!

Room Tip: No pool, but a hot tub. First floor rooms open up to the hot tub. Go to Dante's for food/cockt...
