“The Best Way to Experience Key West!”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

We arrived at sunset on a Sunday night, and were welcomed with a slice of Kayla's incredible Key Lime Pie (truly the best on the island--we did some research!). We stayed in the beautifully decorated Master Suite for 6 days, and took advantage of everything our thoughtful hosts offered. They lent us a pair of bikes, and we were able to ride all over Key West and to Stock Island without any trouble. A long soak in the jacuzzi took care of any aches from overdoing the biking! The fridge, coffeemaker, and microwave enabled us to have a few meals in the room or in the beautiful garden when we needed a break from overindulging in the island's fabulous restaurants. To really experience Key West, you need to get out on the water, so we signed up for a snorkeling trip with Steve. Our host turned out to be as knowledgable about the unique ecosystem as he was about the local fishing scene, and he regaled us with stories on the six-mile boat trip to the coral reef. He took us to a couple of his favorite spots and supplied us with wetsuits, masks, and flippers. Schools of colorful fish swam over and around us. To top off our stay, Steve plucked a lobster from the ocean floor and cooked it up for us when we got back. Our stay could not have been any nicer...

Room Tip: The master suite was spacious and luxurious, with a jacuzzi, shower, flat-screen TV, and kitchen min...

We were so lucky to find out about Atlantis House through TripAdvisor. What a gem! We stayed in the Garden Suite which is uniquely decorated with an artistic flair (Kayla is a very creative gal), very warm feeling, and has all the important amenities (including sun screen, in case you forgot yours!). I mean, come on, the Turkish towels were brought over from Turkey! The Jacuzzi tub was faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabulous. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows, sheets were high-quality. The landscaping and garden area was lovely and peaceful. Kayla was so sweet and made sure we had everything we needed and gave excellent suggestions on places to go. We also thoroughly enjoyed a piece of her homemade key lime pie (which was just delicious) sitting in the garden area there surrounded by beauty.

Atlantis House has a "true Keys" feeling, not a touristy feeling. It is quiet there--there are guests staying next door, but we never heard a peep. This is a great part of Key West to be in--close to the beaches, the Butterfly Conservatory, the White Street and Reynolds Street piers, and far from the noise of Duval Street. When we checked out we got to meet Steve, and he, too, was super nice. These are hosts who do everything they can to make sure their guests are happy and comfortable. We can't wait to visit Key West again and stay at Atlantis House!

Room Tip: If you want to be sure to get a room here, book way ahead, there are only 2 rooms.

Imagine visiting some old friends that invited you to stay with them at their place in Key West, and when you visit, they turn out to be the perfect hosts - warm, engaging, attentive, and really good cooks! That was what is was like for our group of four (two couples) on a recent stay with Steve and Kayla. Both suites were very comfortable, but our favorite space was the deck and pergola where we gathered for breakfast in the mornings, drinks in the evenings, and lots of relaxing in between. Based on the many great comments on Tripadvisor, we indulged in massages by Kayla (we were not disappointed - she is Very good) and had a fresh catch dinner with Steve and Kayla (fantastic - beautifully presented fresh local fish, and yes, the Key Lime pie is to die for!). Outside of staying at this special place, two other favorites recommended by Steve and Kayla were a great meal at Santiago's Bodega (great food, service at atmosphere in tapas style) and a windjammer sunset cruise. Highly, highly recommend Atlantis house!

Room Tip: Both suites are very comfortable. If both are available and you can swing it we'd recommend the...

Staying at Atlantis House was like staying at a favorite cousins house! The Kessler's were very warm and inviting. The guesthouse itself is beautiful, and serene. The rooms are very clean, with comfortable bed and a large bathroom. In the room there is a fridge, coffee maker, a sink and microwave. The location is superb as it is close to all the attractions in Key West. The bikes on site and the pool across the street are very convenient.

this place is it. It isn't really a bed and breakfast btw, but a guesthouse. A beautiful guesthouse, complete with personality, tasteful decoration, high-end amenities, and hosts/owners who will always be near if you need anything but will also entirely respect your wish for privacy if that is your preference.
Looking at some of the comments related to the number 1 b&b in Key West, although people liked it, some were concerned about thin walls and a small jacuzzi. There will be no such comments under the Atlantis House. You do not hear life on the other side of the walls, and you could swim laps in the jacuzzi {ok-that might be a slight exaggeration}. You might hear the occasional rooster since this is Key West.
We stayed in the Master Suite for 6 nights. This is a large room with a really comfortable king sized bed, large flatscreen with decent speakers, a refrigerator large enough for beer and leftovers, a microwave and coffee maker and small sink. To go with the huge jacuzzi is a great shower, that does not leak onto the floor as I read in a review for a different highly rated place. The are 2 sinks widely separated. Turkish towels are provided, as are robes- high end as everything else here is.
Someone complained about being too far from Duval Street. We are within walking distance of everything on the Island pretty much- This from an old fat retired guy who normally walks only to the nearest refrigerator. Granted, I rediscovered a few leg muscles I forgot I had, but as much as I ate, and as well as I ate, the walking was a good thing. Bikes were available for no charge had we wished to use them.
We were shown the Garden Suite when we expressed curiosity- smaller than ours but also nice- a place to stick friends or family when we return.
The outside patio area is a great quiet place to read/sit- gardens, no bugs {at least in January}.
If you get a chance to try Kayla's key-lime pie, jump on that opportunity. Everyone on the island claims there's is the best. She makes no such claim, but it is.
I cannot imagine returning to Key west and staying anywhere else. The price is very reasonable- I have no suggestions to make re: possible improvements. They seem to have thought of everything.
