A ten-minute ride from the Key West Airport, we have bikes on the premises you can rent by the day, and you can actually walk four or five short blocks to all the major attractions.

We'll arrange snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, diving, sightseeing or dolphin-watching trips for you with the most reputable catamarans or sailboats on the island, (all within a three block walk!) or we'll point you to the places to rent moped, jet skis or to go parasailing. Just let us know when you want to go and we'll handle the rest. Someone wants to pamper you!

"This is the first time we stayed in a Bed and Breakfast in Key West, we previously stayed in hotels. We could not have been happier. We also have never used a shared facility however we had not issues with sharing a bathroom either. We were most impressed with the staff, Dave at the helm, and everyone from housekeeping to pool maintenance. The kitchen staff was not only perfect in their baking abilities but very knowlegeable about where to go and what to do on the Island. Happy hour was also very pleasurable and we would be happy to stay in this facility again and again!"

"I happen to be a travel agent and I am very critical of places to stay. this was amazing. Dave the Innkeeper is always helpful and always has a smile. The staff that we dealt with Kelly & Jenn were amazing. Always helpful, smiling, professional. The rooms were extremely neat and very well kept grounds. The whole staff was always helpful with ideas of where to eat and to have a drink. their breakfast and happy hours are fantastic. we already booked in our next trip in August with them. Last the location is perfect."

"My wife and I went down for our 10th anniversary. We had a great time. This was our first time to Key West. The location was great, the food was wonderful. The Happy Hour was very entertaining. It gave you some time to talk to some of the other guests and see what they have done and would recommend. Of course, you only get out of it what you put in. So you could sit off to the side and not talk to anyone and think it was a waste of time or you can sit down with someone and talk. Our room was very large, Room 4 and very nicely done. We will go back."

"I cannot imagine our incredible vacation without the warmth, comfortability and meticulous service of the Cypress House. The house is stunning, huge and greatly surpassed our expectations of service for a guest house."

"My lady and I stay at the cypress house every visit. I am writing this review to say that they are professional, courteous, and the best!! We never dream of staying elsewhere."

"Came on this wonderful house by chance and stayed 5 nights. Service was second to none, breakfast fantastic and the happy hour was amazing. Rooms were lovely and homely and clean. Have sent several people here since and they all loved it too. Most wonderful place to stay."
