Southernmost Point Guest House
Ranked #30 of 77 Key West B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 May 2014

After an 8 night Caribbean cruise out of Fort Lauderdale we planned to spend 6 nights in the Florida Keys and Miami. Having stopped for one night in Islamorada at a not so plush motel on the way to Key West we weren't so sure what to expect at the Southernmost Point Guest house.

Thankfully we had a pleasant surprise, Mona greeted us with with a welcoming and friendly smile and all the staff made us feel instantly welcome. Although we had pre-booked for 3 nights, we knew we would have to change rooms after the first night. Mona was pleased to tell us we had room 5 for the first night and all the other staff told us we had the best room! We were not disappointed, we had the honeymoon suite consisting of a large (and I mean large) reception room with a fully equipped kitchen. Leading off the room was the bedroom which again was large with an over sized king size bed and then off there was a bathroom with shower. The room had it's own balcony overlooking the ocean at the quiet end of Duval Street.

The following 2 nights we were moved down to the ground floor to either room 1A or 1B which once again was large with separate kitchen and bathroom. We was not disappointed as we had plenty of room also the seating area we had overlooked the spa pool which when we was there was very quiet and used very little. This room had twin queen size beds.

The staff took care of moving our cases and food from one room to another.

The only negatives I have are that the air conditioning does appear to be very loud, but this seems to be the case for all older houses. Also in room 1A/B there is a distinct lack of hooks and hangers in the bathroom to hang towels and to dry clothes.

Breakfast was buffet style, hot or cold and was taken on the seating in the garden. On our arrival Mona invited us to the happy hour for 4pm which consisted of complimentary wine and nibbles. It was nice and relaxed and a case of just help yourself, as if you were at home.

The SMPGH is situated at the southern end and the quiet end of Duvall Street and is literally 2 or 3 minutes from the beach but also 10 minutes walk from the bars and restaurants on Duvall Street. There is a large car park for the guest house, so was able to park up for 3 days and forget about the car.

We loved our time here and would certainly come again, it was a real shame to leave and Mona and the staff made us feel welcome and comfortable.

Room Tip: Rooms 5 (Honeymoon suite), 1B and 1A all exceptional

Our 2nd visit to this lovely old Key West house.This guest house is situated 1 minute from the beach and the Southernmost Point in a very quiet part of Duval St yet it is within easy walking distance of the shops , restaurants and historical houses.
The staff are charming and friendly and the rooms clean and comfy.
An afternoon spent in the garden is relaxing and with the addition of wine served at 4.00 a delight
We would return again

Let me start off by stating that I live 20 miles outside of Key West and visit frequently. I got married across the street from the Southernmost Point Guest House at the Southernmost House 10 years ago. We always celebrate our anniversary in Key West by staying at a guest house for a few days.We have returned here 3 times.
Mona has simply the best value in Key West. She has been upgrading all the rooms. Ours was done over in Tommy Bahama motif. The breakfast has improved greatly, no more cold cuts and Cuban bread, there are, eggs, sausage, waffles, fresh fruit etc. This is a great location at the "quiet" end of Duval. The beach is on the next block. Some of the best restaurants on the island within walking distance. Do yourself a favor, check this place out.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, if you have difficulty with stairs definitely request a room on the first floor.

Wonderful historical home with a warm and friendly staff. Located in a great quiet area away from all the craziness but still close enough to walk to shops and restaurants. The large comfy hammocks in the garden area make for a great late afternoon siesta. The only negative was that the ac unit in our room was quite loud but overall we had a great experience at this guest house and would highly recommend!

Absolutely loved this place! Only wish I had more time to relax in the hammocks... In a place with over-priced accommodations, I felt we found a gem.
Location was quiet, but in walking distance (if you have comfy shoes and don't mind sweating a bit) of all the fun spots along Duval St.
Staff was very friendly and two Kitties welcomed us the night we checked in.
The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast was hearty enough to hold you through an early dinner.
I would definitely stay here again!

The positives, a lovely house with history situated on the quiet end of Duval with beautifully maintained gardens. The staff, mona, bobbi and Beth could not have been more friendly and helpful. Pool - lovely and warm and happy hour drinks and breakfast welcoming. I'm afraid I have a couple of negatives, the cats firstly. As I have an allergic reaction to them, I was not very pleased to see them asleep on private verandah chairs and sitting on the areas used for breakfast servings. Made me want to check everything I was eating for hairs. Our room (2) smelt of damp which was off putting at first when entering the room but you got used to it after a while. This B and B is charming but could use a little update and some tlc in the rooms in particular. This especially given the high price it costs to stay. The grounds and pool, and staff are wonderful though and it is in a good position in which to explore Key a West.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to the southernmost guest house in the United States. At our Key West guest house, we offer southernmost hospitality, and since the late 1800s, we’ve gone to great lengths to make stays here an absolute pleasure. In fact, in 1894, when Cuban cigar-maker Eduardo H. Gato realized the handsome, rambling Victorian home he had built was not getting the right sun exposure on his favorite porches, he moved the house across the street! He had the huge structure rolled across the street on logs pulled by mules and he rotated the house to create the most favorable mix of sun and shade. ... more   less
