Finding somewhere reasonably priced and good value in The Keys is always a challenge. Compared with other tourist areas there isn’t a great range of rates available. Easter, still high season it would seem, does not make it any easier. One place I have stayed in previously has rates of $140 a night in July and $300 in April! However,...

Great small property on the Atlantic side of the Keys. Very charming room #4 the Flamingo room. The beds were comfortable with multiple extra weight blankets. Nice size refrigerator. Shower is very small and needs an update but it works!

Rachel was very accommodating. We needed a larger pot to make shrimp linguine and she brought us one from her own home! This is a very relaxing place to stay, beautiful sunrise views with the ocean right in front of you. We hung out at the swimming pool a lot and walked around the grounds. There are plenty of chairs...

What a perfect little treasure. Quirky and a bit ramshackle but for me that adds to the charm. Our host was most courteous and provided us with the means to have a DIY supper sat looking out at the ocean. It really was a beautiful setting and although the highway is close it still felt like a tranquil get away....

This is not a four star resort BUT instead a take you back to where your parents stayed when going to Key West for a vacation, This is a very small Inn BUT yes it is clean. The sunrise is fantastic along with the small quiet beach. Considering the price of other hotels in the area this is very reasonable.

Rachel was very accommodating - which was really appreciated. I wish we could have stayed longer, but did not have any extra time. We stayed in the Key Lime suite. Newly redone bathroom and cozy/fun bedroom. The pool and dock looked great, but didn't have time to enjoy them. We plan to come back!

Initially the staff is friendly and attempted to satisfy. It was my husband and my experience this Inn needs updating very badly. My mattress was old and coming apart also dirty and uncomfortable. In the middle of the night the shower was leaking in the room above us water running down our wall. The owner apologizing and attempted to clean...

Lovely location right on the Atlantic. Very quaint, funky and laid-back, perhaps a bit too much!! Grounds are in need of maintenance, and better outdoor furniture. Our room was clean and bright, beds comfortable, and there was a nice sized refrigerator too! Rachel was helpful with restaurant and sunset suggestions...thank you! Biggest negatives were the mixing valve in our shower...

We stayed here 2 nights while travelling from Key Largo to Key West over the holidays. We will definitely be coming back as the view from the units was amazing & the friendliness of the inn staff was beyond compare. We stayed in two different rooms, as we booked about a month prior, so we were happy that White Sands...

Only thing is I wish the beach was more "swimable" but this was an awesome find with my husband and I. We got a beach front room and stayed a couple nights. The style of the room was cute and tropical. The beds were comfy. It was tucked away from everything else. Nothing better than a nap under one of...
