Sweep her off her feet!

4.6 on July 30, 2016

Romance is not reserved only to the rich & the lucky ...If she deserves the mystique of sultry tropical appointments...once attained by world travel...immerse yourself in this lost gem hideaway! You will be torn as to the wisdom of sharing this beguiling beauty...enthralled as you are in her torrid remembrances. You will go away reluctantly...changed in you essence, her charms hath captured thee...

Amazing little Oasis in Key West

5 on July 18, 2015

The room was better than the pictures could describe. The attention to detail was exceptional. A complimentary bottle of champagne for our honeymoon stay was to our surprise waiting for us in the room. After taking in all of the "Ooohs and Ahhs" of our exquisite room, I was now only hoping the bed would be suitable for a much needed good nights sleep. And it was and much more. The pillows were plush and sheets were soft. I was out like a light. We just missed Kayla who had flown out that evening. But left behind were two, delicious homemade Key Lime Pie slices from Kayla. The best Key Lime pie we had experienced during our stay. While at the Atlantis House you have excess to free wifi, bikes, beach chairs /umbrellas & coolers which we utilized and greatly appreciated. The house is a very short walk down to the next beach. Located just off the beaten path away from the crowds and noise, the Atlantis House is a quiet oasis of its own. Our first full day in Key West we did a lot of the usual local touring. In the evening we walked from the Atlantis House to Duval Street (Main business strip) and all the way up to the north end of the street. Needless to say when we got back to our room, we were exhausted. The room has a jacuzzi tub which is just what my wife and I needed to end the night. Also provided are lush Turkish Towels. While Key West is relaxing and beautiful, what made this trip what it was, was coming back to our beautiful room at the Atlantis House each and every night. It was hard to leave this place. Simply put, Amazing.

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!
