I can't say enough great things about our recent stay at the Artist House! The house was perfect and the hospitality was top notch! The breakfast and happy hour is such a nice touch! 
A special thank you to Laura for all the great tips on where to eat and places to check out. Especially the call ahead to Blue Heaven our last morning for breakfast. Without her help, we probably would not have made it there to eat, yet again!
We will be back at our next visit to Key West! Hopefully soon!

We found The Artist House on line and it appeared to tick the boxes for us - we wanted somewhere with personality and comfort but not a big chain. On arrival we were not disappointed. Very warm and welcoming, lovely touches such as 'happy hour' with complimentary drinks, atmospherically decorated room, delicious, generous breakfast in beautiful characterful surroundings. A perfect location for exploring Key West. If individualised service matters to you The Artist house will delight.

We visited Key West for our one year wedding anniversary. The Artist House is such a cute B&B inside and out. The service is exceptional. Laura was very pleasant during each of our encounters with her. She was helpful in advising us in any questions we may have had. The breakfast was delicious and the happy hour was convenient and a definite plus. Our room was adequate in size, very clean and the beds made for a wonderful night's sleep. Though the property was sold out during our stay, we rarely saw or even heard other guests, it is very quiet throughout. We were provided two beach towels which I thought was a definite added bonus. The location could not be closer to all the hot spots and tourist attractions. The hotel offers bike rentals, but being so close we declined and were able to walk everywhere with ease. We arrived early before check-in but were still able to put our things away in the room and were allowed to leave our luggage once we checked out to venture out on our last day and return to pick it up once we were ready to depart. A cab was even called for us to head back to the airport. My recommendation to stay at The Artist House ranks very high. I cannot recall one negative thought I had for our entire stay.

Room Tip: The Tullett room has an extra bed if you are traveling with additonal guests

You can't beat Artist House's rates for its location. It's just one block from Duval Street, yet is quiet and peaceful. The staff here is extremely friendly and go out of their way to make their guests comfortable. We came down on the Key West Express and they kindly let us store our bags until check-in. On the day we left, we could again leave our bags until it was time to get back on the Key West Express.

We stayed in the Sun Room which was perfect for the 2 of us and a 1 night stay. If we were staying more than a couple nights, we probably would have preferred one of the other rooms as the bathroom is very small, just as described on their website. If you are staying in the Sun Room, the stairs going up to it are steep, just as described as well. If you have any mobility problems whatsoever, book another room. We were fine, although I wasn't too keen on the stairs since I"m afraid of heights.

I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive at staying somewhere with a famous ghost story (Robert the Doll), but can happily report that there was nothing creepy about the house during our stay.

We did not partake in the included breakfast or happy hour, but we walked by both and they looked yummy. We felt this was a nice touch and would have participated if we had more time.

We would happily go back the next time we'll be in Key West. We are thinking of bringing our 2 well-behaved kids (both over the age of 9) next time, as the Artist House is one of the few B&Bs that take children over the age of 5.

Excellent stay. Fantastic location. We walked everywhere.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. For those who would like to be 'spooked' Robert the Doll is now in residence at East Martello Museum and you can visit him there. We're just glad he's not making mischief here!

While making of a bucket list item of driving to Key West on the A1A, we decided to forgo the norm for us and we stayed in a B&B. Using trip advisor we selected The Artist House which lived up to its reviews... AWESOME! The place was very clean, well maintained and comfortable. Staff was friendly and very helpful in making the most of our short stay on the island. Our suite was amazingly decorated, spacious and other amenities were superb. Definite recommendation!

The Artist House was everything we hoped for - the location was perfect for exploring all that Key West has to offer, but the house itself was wonderful. Really authentic and each room had it's own character. We spent 2 nights in the Turret Suite which couldn't have been better for us as we had our 22 year old son with us. He slept in the Turret itself, which was totally spectacular in a big storm with windows on all sides!
Laura's welcome made us feel like family and the Happy Hour each day was unexpected but a lovely touch that made us feel really at home. Beer on our own balcony to cool down after a hot day out and about - what could be better.
If ever we make it back to Key West we will definitely stay there again.

We are always pleased to see guests enjoying the balcony from the Turret Suite. It is nice and shady, even on a hot, sunny day. Especially with those cold Corona's, right? Thank you for taking the time to right about us.

Great location of this wonderful building with very nice and helpful staff who recommended activities, great restaurants and which beach was the best, among other things. Close to the busy Duval Street. Charming rooms with comfy beds. Good maid service, always clean and fresh when we got home after an exhausting day at the beach. Nice to be able to rent bikes on the property at a good price. Breakfast was nice. Complimentary Happy Hour was a must every day, don´t miss! All in all, best vacation stay ever.
