My husband and I stayed in the Garden Suite and had a wonderful stay there. Steve and Kayla are so sweet and friendly! They do everything to make you relaxed and comfortable, from the quality of the rooms to the peaceful garden deck to the excellent food. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

A Piece Of Paradise

5 on June 30, 2012

We stayed here on our very first trip to Key West and Meeting of the Minds in November of 2011. Steve and Kayla were simply amazing hosts. They welcomed us with open arms and amazing Key Lime pie! They also provided us with everything we needed making our stay so memorable. We look forward to getting back to the Atantis House someday so that we can once again enjoy a piece of paradise.

We found an amazing place... the friendliness added to the location, was much over our expectations. Healthy breakfast -- bicycle rides a walking distance from the most beautiful sunsets. We will come back -- longer!

Atlantis House was perfect for us in every way, quiet, peaceful, no elevators or crowds to deal with. The outside area was our haven, to read the paper and drink coffee in the morning and wind down and relax at the end of the evening. Great access to everything, walking for exercise there were several routes to take, we rode the bikes everywhere, they were very comfortable and we always found a place to park. We enjoyed the up front and personal views on the bikes, we found so many places by just winding our way through different streets, we always found our way back to Atlantis House. Kayla and Steve are great host, they are very knowledgeable and were so helpful with all of our questions (we had many). We had great food and drinks everywhere we went, but the best key lime pie and cafe con leche was at Atlantis House, Kayla it was truly the best we had. We slept like babies in the oh so comfortable bed and sheets. We hope to visit Key West and Atlantis House again. Thanks for a memorable vacation. Mark and Georgia Kirkpatrick, Charlotte, NC
