We arrived at Ocean House after a 4 hour drive from Orlando and on arrival in the car park we were greeted and made to feel relaxed and at home straight away! After having a complimentary arrival drink, we were given a tour of the grounds, pool and beach before being shown to our room. This was to be the...

Once again, Congratulations on your marriage! Thank you for your detailed recap of your stay at Ocean House. We strive to create an intimate atmosphere of quiet and relaxation for our guests in a very tropical setting. I also enjoy watching the lizards, geckos, frogs and dragon flies.

My husband and I just got home from our second stay at Ocean House, and once again, had an amazing stay. We spent 8 nights there this time, and if we didn't have pets at home, we'd still be there!! Not only does the location, view, gardens, pool, and guest accommodations stand above all, the STAFF truly goes above and...

My husband and I drove down from Fort Lauderdale for a weekend getaway for my birthday. It was just what the doctor ordered. From the moment we drove onto the property, we knew we were in for a treat. Check-in involves a tour of the property, where you realize quite quickly that it is landscaped beautifully and that you may...

Glad to hear that you will be back and that you enjoyed your birthday dinner on property!

My husband and I stayed at Ocean House for five nights in June. It was our first trip to the Keys and we were a little unsure of what to expect as we began to near our destination. The main road through Islamorada is not impressive...and like much of the Keys is gitchy, replete with quirky shops, vintage 50's motels...

My family and I stayed at the Ocean House for a too brief one night stay on our recent visit to the keys. We loved everything about our visit.

You are absolutely right, one night at Ocean House is not nearly enough to thoroughly experience the ambiance of our unique resort! From what our past guests relay to me, five to seven nights at Ocean House allows for total and complete relaxation and revitalization.

Spent a weekend there at the beginning of June 2014. My girlfriend and I wanted an out of the way location, and found the absolutely perfect place. I drove into a small slice of heaven. The grounds were meticulously maintained, the rooms were very clean (and included a full size refrigerator for leftovers!). The view? Breathtaking. I can honestly say...

Thank you for choosing Ocean House and for sharing your experience with other travelers!

Very charming. Only 8 rooms. Kind of like a b&b but more private. Impeccably maintained. Staff is wonderful. Modest continental breakfast anywhere on the grounds (pool, beach, cabana.) easy walk or free bike ride to restaurants. Bayside, so no sunset view. This time the resort's cat spent a night curled-up with us. Still wish the rooms had ceiling fans and...
