... the resort offers that goes to the beach ..., but after checking out the pool areas, we change our plan and decide to hang at the Resort and relax in the sun. Yes.. I gave up the beach!
Not much going on at the pool... there are actually four of them and we pick one where we can try and keep somewhat out of the sun..... lol a few burnt spots from yesterday.

A little Key West rain in the afternoon spent relaxing back at Alexander's Guesthouse, before venturing out in the evening for dinner at Café Solé - beautiful seafood in a pleasant relaxed ...

The only boat that has stayed for a while, (most are in and out in a day or two)gave us the name of a captain that will go out on your boat. We did that on Thursday. We had a lot of fun and Ralph learned how to use his Outriggers............Now, ...
... walked around. There was a giant cruise ship docked there, but Dan could make out where the old submarine basin was. There were a couple of beautiful commerical hotels and a large complex labeled "Naval Administration" which, on closer inspection, was a really nice hotel. Someone in Miami had told us that the Navy operated a nice hotel in Key West for military personnel, and it sure is! And it's nice that military personnel can stay there for a reduced ...
... that one hotel was named "Southernmost Hotel"; another was "Southernmost Hotel on the Beach. A house (now a B&B) said it was the Southernmost house, yet next door someone beat them by building a house 6" further South and calling it "The Southernmost Southernmost House."
After dinner El Siboney, a Cuban Restaurant, we walked back to Sunset Square to watch the sunset. The clouds obscured the final setting, but it was pretty nonetheless.

Historical Traveler Reviews Avalon Bed and Breakfast Key West
I read the reviews on many B&B's in Key West before stumbling on this one. The rates were better than the rest and the review about the cats didn't bother me since I'm a kitty-lover. I couldn't have been happier with my decision. The house is located near the Southernmost point. We stayed in the "budget" room. The room was behind the main house near the pool. It was small but it was extremely quiet and very clean. The canopy beds gave the room a romantic look and they turn the lights on in your room for you so when you get back at night, you have light. I only saw the cats twice, and never at breakfast. It was relaxing to sit on the porch and have a great breakfast that filled my stomache. Doug and Yvonne provided us with tons of information, including where to get a great turkey sandwich. I can't wait to go back and bring my whole family! I HIGHLY recommend this B&B if you want to have an extremely pleasant, relaxing time in Key West.
Not crazy about the cats
Hotel was very comfortable. The only problem is some rooms were bigger than others and we did not get the room we had booked 3 months in advance.
I also didn't like that cats roamed the table where the breakfast was being served.
It was good because the scooter rental was across the street and a good beach was up the block. It was on the more quiet side so you can have peace or ride the scooters to the other side where the action was.
All in all I would not stay here again but at another bed and breakfast up the street. There are 132 bed and breakfast places so do your research.
Fantastic 5 night stay for family of four. Very cozy, relaxing and clean environment. Terrific staff. Great European Breakfast. Will definitely stay here again on our next vacation to Key West.
This is the place!
The Avalon Bed & Breakfast is perfect. One of the best things about it is that is located away from the crowded and noisy area of Key West. Yet, if you'd like to party, is walking distance to it. If fact, everything seems walking distance from the Avalon. The room that we had, although somewhat small, was very nice and romantic. Breakfast was excellent - serve on the porch facing the street. Customer service was friendly and professional. Stay here and you will not regret it.
My friends and I just stayed at the Avalon for 2 nights. We were not impressed but not disappointed with the Avalon. In comparison with the other B&B's it seems to be in good condition. Some of them need restoration. When we first arrived we were initially thought to be spring breakers and were not happy to have us. We were not on spring break and were certainly going to pay good money to stay there. The other couple we traveled with paid the same as we did and had a far inferior room. Smaller and not as nice. Problems with bathroom door.
Awesome Place to Stay
The B & B is really nice, great location if you don't mind a healthy jaunt to Mallory Square, but what's best are the rooms and the service. The rooms are absolutely adorable, very homey, and a much vacation feel to it. The service is great, people are very friendly. I only wish there was some hot breakfast added to the breakfast menu, considering that one is one vacation, one feels like a sumptuous breakfast once in a while.
Friendly and Traditional
Very good B&B on the "quiet" end of Duval Street. Room was on the small side, but beautifully furnished and decorated. Breakfast was extensive, and the staff were very helpful and friendly - we enjoyed it so much we stayed for an extra night!Highly recommended.
A wonderful place to stay and relax. Close to all of the activities on Duval Street, but far enough away that it is quiet. Breakfast on the front porch was excellent! The people who ran the Bed and Breakfast made you feel like family. We will definitely stay there again when we go back.
This was our first visit to Key west (april 2003), having visited Orlando many times. and would noramlly stay in large resort style properties. My wife and I have a 3yr daughter, and we noted that many of the B&B properties in Key west specificaly exclude young children.
