So, this will be an interesting review as we didn't actually stay at the BnB but Amy, the owner, was amazing and helped us out immensely. My friends and I had booked a room at An Island Oasis through the Hotels.com phone service the day of our intended stay. We received the email confirmation and a number to call if we were to have a late check-in, which we were. I called and left a message. We arrived that night at about 9 PM and went to the BnB. On the door was a number to call for late check-in, this number was different from the one hotels.com had given us. When we called, we learned that Amy had received no notice of our reservation and had subsequently rented out the room an hour or so before. As we were talking, I heard a ding and Amy had just received the reservation on her blackberry, two hours later.
Now we were in Key West, at 9 pm at night, and 5 hours away from our home with no place to stay. The mix-up was of not fault of Amy's yet she assured me that she would call those she knew in the area and try to find us a place. I meanwhile called Hotels.com back and was put on hold and hung up on 4 times. Amy called during this and had not yet managed to find anything but was still trying. I tried Hotels.com again, who again put me on hold and refused to let me speak to a manager. Then the angel who is Amy called and said she had found us a room at the Westin, a 5 star hotel, for the same price as we had booked her room at the Island Oasis. The Westin had our name as soon as we arrived, and it indeed, was at the discounted price and the already amazing Jr. King suite with balcony was upgraded to one with an ocean view. We have never stayed in such a nice place (although, not having stayed at An Island Oasis, we cannot be sure, ;) ).
But Amy's kindness does not stop there. Amy called the next day to make sure our stay was okay and that everything went well. Our trip to Key West was saved by Amy and we had an amazing time. For a woman who was neither responsible for us nor knew us or met us, Amy went above and beyond and helped make our trip unforgettable. And we must say, having seen the outside of the BnB only, it looked amazing and if we ever return to Key West, we will definitely be making a reservation (not through Hotels.com ). Thanks again Amy!

Stayed at this b&b for the first time. We were in the cottage that is attached to the side of the house. Biggest complaint was the air conditioner window unit which was really, really noisy...the rest of the house has central air. We were here in season, close to $220 a night ---very pricy for this modest room but still cheaper than any other b&b we researched. Room had small fridge, microwave, tiny tv. Enjoyed lounging out in semi private side yard with a cocktail . Breakfast was truly continental & we just had cereal and fruit, enjoyed the coffee. Nice bonus was being able to rent bikes to tool around on the island for 24 hours, just $15. All in all, reasonable---if price weren't a consideration, we would rather stay at Pearls about two blocks over and fork out the extra $50 a night, but we can reasonably recommend it .

Bottom line. Look at my reviews on the Wolverton Inn (Stockton NJ) or the Wades Point Inn (McDaniel - St. Michael MD). These are true 5 star B & B's. This B&B is lacking in many ways. But still has a place. I hope that my review will help you determine what that place is for you.
Check in at a inexpensive motel across the street. Are you kidding? We've stayed in dozens on B&B's and have never seen such a setup. You stand outside and get signed in through a window! I thought I was at a custard stand.
The main house had no public area. You walk in the main entrance and are in a tiny foyer with rooms on either side and a staircase 5 feet from the entrance. Two more rooms on the second floor, same setup, a tiny landing with rooms on either side. It's basically an extension of the inexpensive motel across the street.
The room was not the cleanest but just OK. Nice King bed with a large day bed. The room was spacious had a microwave, fridg and a small sink - essentially a small kitchenette minus the stove top. .
The property is in a great location. It's a very short walk (100 yards at most) to the beach. But it's a tiny one. Maybe 50 feet square. Also located close enough to and far enough from Duval Street so you don't hear any noise but have easy access.
Breakfast, which is half a B&B's name was DISMAL. When we came down there was no coffee, no mugs, no plates. The girl in charge didn't speak a lick of English. Eventually she brought out the essentials but no decaf for my wife - they don't have decaf, Huh?. It was a continental breakfast and a lousy one at that.
It does have a very nice outdoor deck for breakfast. It's hidden from the street, well shaded and very nice.
The staff is friendly and accommodating. When we called for an iron a young man offered to bring it up. When it arrived it was warm - he was thoughtful enough to plug it in to make sure ur worked. I tried tipping him but he declined saying the iron should have been in the room in the first place!
So there it is. Nice people, great location but a poor property.*

We stayed in the cottage here, which is the only room not connected to the main house. It was very cute, in a VERY casual way. This is NOT a luxury B&B, than again, I don't think ANYTHING is luxury in Key West. It was bright yellow, with tropical bedspread, pillows, wicker chair set, and butterfly decorations....beachy, laid back. It had a big front porch, and its own gate to the sidewalk. The price was great ($100 ish a night), and a continental breakfast was included, though I never tried it. The ladies at check in were very nice, and had two adorable kittens that they let me hold.
The location is good, a quick walk to the Southernmost Point, and if you stand at the front door facing the street, turn right, and than right on the very next street, there is a SMALL (literally about 20' wide) beach (the only one I came accross, to others, who like myself, may be misguided....Key West itself really has no beaches, you have to boat to them) . Its also a quick walk to Duval Street, but not so close that you get any crazy noise at night.
Overall good spot, especially for the budget traveler
