Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014



We stayed in the Master Suite at the Atlantis House for four nights in March, during the St. Patrick's celebration, although every day is a party in Key West. The Atlantis House was a great "retreat" from the party on Duval Street. You always wonder about the photos on a site, but the suite was even better then the pictures. The place is immaculate and there was a certin peacefulness, not only withn the suite, but in the "patio" area as well, which was more like a Buddha garden of serenity. Kayla and Steve are wonderul hosts and are available to answer questions, as well as share a piece of Kayla's wonderful key lime pie. We could go on with the reivew, but a lot has been said in previous ones as far as location, restaurants, etc. At times we felt that we could just stay at Atlantis House and not go anywhere in Key West because of its serenity and wonderful accomodations.

Room Tip: The Master Suite is well worth it. Bikes are provided and a great path is available along the water...

A great retreat

  • 5 of 5

Warm welcome from Captain Steve and Kayla, great Key Lime pie! The bikes are the best way to travel around Key West they rule the roads. So many views and wonderful houses to see, in the back streets. Then back to the peace and tranquility of Atlantis House.

A beautiful retreat hosted by wonderful people!

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed in the Garden Suite for 4 nights. The suite was perfect for the 2 of us. My son had his own space in the outer area with a daybed and television. Steve and Kayla are fantastic hosts. They go above and beyond for their guests. We took advantage of the complimentary bicycles and cycled all over the island. Kayla makes amazing desserts which were shared with us on 2 occasions. The grounds are incredible and maintained beautifully. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I highly recommend these wonderful hosts. I would definitely stay here again should I return to Key West.

Anniversary Dream Trip

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I called Capt. Steve from the airport to the moment he dropped us off, the service and attention we received was impeccable. Steve and Kayla have built a wonderful place to stay and play, away from the noise and bustle of Duval St, complimented amazingly by the nearby beach and neighborhoods. The bed was as comfortable as home, the small amenities made the room feel like a full access suite, and the garden served as a perfect place to have your first (or last) cocktail of the day.

We will no doubt be back to the Atlantis House, maybe as soon as next year, and would recommend this bed and breakfast for anyone looking to get away in comfort. It is rare to experience something as natural and close to home while away, but Steve and Kayla have nailed it here!

Amazing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Atlantis House!! We went to Key West for an athletic event and this home was in the perfect location. Close to the beach, and close enough to walk into town. The Garden Suite is cozy and sweet. The entrance to the room is small with a trundle bed/sofa and tv. The bedroom is very comfy, with a mini bar. The bathroom is terrific with a nice walk in shower. We were met by the hosts and were treated to the best keylime pie on the island!! The best treat was seeing the amazing Christmas display of lights and animation. The grounds of the property are spectacular and the backyard garden was great for relaxing with coffee and conversation. Can't wait to return. Also--the hosts are the kindest, sweetest people--very committed to guest's stay with enthusiastic hospitality!!
