Michel & Roxanne first met at the Travelers Palm Guesthouse in 1996 and were married in Key West in 2002. As romantics, they bought the property in 2000. As environmental issues are important to them, it was totally renovated in 2009-2010 as a "green" guesthouse with three separate cottages. It was been nominated for a "green living" award and received a "Certificate of Excellence" for the rehabilitation of the property from The Historic Florida Keys Foundation in March 2010.
Michel is currently a realtor and property manager; in his past careers he has been the owner/operator of a dive shop, a massage therapist and a hospital administrator. Roxanne is a Certified Financial Planner and has been managing money for individuals and corporate pension plans since 1980.
They both love boating, swimming, traveling, cooking and the arts.

Stayed at the Casa Caracol and Isla Bella cottages during August and it was wonderful! The cottages are brand new, with beautiful furniture, and the grounds are kept immaculate. Great place to go with friends or family. I will be going back...can't wait!
The Island House and the whole "village" was amazing! Clean, safe and private. The location is perfect on a quiet side street right near Duval and walkable/bikeable to anywhere you want to go. The house itself is beautiful and brand new with every amenity you could desire. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the cleaning service was great. The pool is an amazing afternoon oasis from the hot, tropical sun. We will definitely be back to the Traveler's Palm and highly recommend it to everyone. Cheers!
