Thanks Marie for another great stay. Carribean House is a great place to stay. It is cost friendly, good location, pet friendly, and a great friendly host. Yes the rooms are small but comfortable. I ask do you go to Key West for the room or the experience of Duval Street? With its location, you can walk across the street...

Good place for the money small but not expensive at all. We will stay again. This inexpensive place allowed us to spend more money else where and enjoy Key West. The rooms were clean and Marie was more than willing to help with any of our needs

Those who have poorly rated this lodging did not do their research. Here are the facts: the rooms are smaller than a hotel, there are only four on site parking spaces, the room was clean and up to date, the rate was minimum $100 less than everyting else we looked at, a very convenient location for anyone in reasonably good...

If you've priced Key West rooms, then you know this is a great deal. Manage your expectations though—our room was small and very basic, but the great rate reflects that. Perfectly located too (just blocks from Duval Street in one direction and the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park in the other, and just up the street from the...

First and foremost, let us understand what the Caribbean House is. It is a budget friendly option for travelers looking for a bed to sleep in. It is in a great location, walking distance from anything and everything you may want to experience in Key West. My wife and I were already paying to stay somewhere else but didn't want...

First, I am sorry that this nice couple did not like our guesthouse. Yes the room are little but they are clean, we changed the mattresses they are memory foam mattresses now, the guests have no remote control for the a/c but we will change the temperature at they convenience when they ask, at the CARIBBEAN HOUSE all the rooms...

The Caribbean House proved to be a fortunate choice: reasonably priced and right in the middle of things in Key West. The room was very small, but we were in Key West: we only needed to sleep there. The house itself is in good condition and has a very charming appearance. We were just across the street from enjoyable bars...

Parking is too tight. Must be within inches of the next car in front of the house or the owner will micromanage your parking. 57 degrees outside and they have AC blowing. NO control of room temp, its in office. + The light stays on AC unit all night. Bed is horrible and noisy. Noisy guest. I dont recommend this...

I am very happy that this person write, I can give my side of the incident. I understand that we cannot please everybody, we are a little guesthouse, we NEVER said that we have big rooms and it is why we have low prices too This is how it start ! Our parking has the normal sized parking, but this...

We stayed for 3 nights and wished we had longer. Our room was small but very cute and clean. It was all we needed as a comfy place to sleep. The building was traditional for the Keys and so pretty in pink and white, and maintained beautifully. The outside terraces were communal and kept spotlessly clean - great for eating...

The Caribbean House was perfect for our 5 days stay. The Room was small but very clean. The only down side was the control of the AC in our room. The temperature control is in the main office and at night it could get a little warm, but once we asked they lowered it and it was okay. You can...
