“Only one night but great accommodations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Found this B&B after giving up on the local Marriotts as none got good reviews. So glad I did as this was a better location and an excellent place in many regards. Laura was fantastic even though we were a short stay, and treated us like gold in every way. Enjoyed the LARGE bathroom and the king sized canopy bed. Would certainly go back again without a second thought.

Stayed for several days in April and loved the close location to Duval Street (close enough to walk but not hear). The bed and breakfast is well run and the daytime onsite management staff were friendly and always quick with recommendations that made our trip more fun! The house supposeedly has a history and is on the "Ghost Tour," but we didn't experience any unusual mischief:) There is a daily happy hour with complimentary drinks and breakfast is your standard continential breakfast- so if you're looking for a full home cooked breakfast, you won't get that. Take advantage of the onsite bike rental--easy to use and cheaper than other places! The only reason a didn't rate a five is that there is a need for some small maintenace throughout the property--tile broken in the bathroom, the back patio and small pool need a good cleaning etc. If you stay in a room on an upper floor, which we didn't, know that there are steep stairs and quite a few:) Would recommend!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our staff is quite happy to make recommendations for things to do, places to eat, etc. While our breakfast is 'continental' it is far from 'standard'. Many of our goodies are provided by our wonderful french bakery, Croissant de France, including quiche, tarts, croissants, bagels from Goldman's deli, champagne for Mimosa's and an assortment of cereals, fruits, yogurts, pastries, meats and cheeses, eggs for poaching. Something for everyone.

As our guests know from the sign posted by the garden door we are midway through our garden renovation. All areas of the garden are fully functional, including our heated dipping pool with spa jets. We hope you'll get a chance to visit us again and see the finished result.

We stayed at the Artist House from 04 April to 07 April 2014. Direct booking over the internet was very easy, replies to any query were answered promptly. Our overall experience was excellent in every way - what more can one say. Excellent position, excellent accommodation, extremely helpful staff, good breakfasts.

We stayed at the Artist House May1-5 th 2014. Rooms are exactly as they appeared online. Pool area was fabulous. I would not change a thing. The staff go out of their way to get you whatever you need. Breakfast and happy hour exceeded my expectations. Going back in July and can't wait!

Room Tip: It was too hot to use the porch - the smaller room upstairs would be a good choice if you want to sa...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Artist House and, even better, for booking a return visit! As you may recall we are in the process of renovating the garden area. We can't wait to show you the 'finished product' in July.

Everything in this B&B was excellent. The frontdesk (reception), our cosy room, etc. The breakfast was unique. Also the whole property was very clean. If we will ever return to Key West we will certainly stay in the Artist House again. It feels like coming home!!

Room Tip: We have only seen our own room, but I suppose that all rooms are perfect.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Artist House. All of our rooms are unique in décor but have in common wonderfully comfortable pillow top beds, some even have the original fireplaces.

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.
