Walking back to the cottage, we passed a 58/59 Vette parked on the front patio of a local bar. I was then reminded of the fact that today was – St. Patrick’s Day! There were amazing sights to behold which I did not react quickly enough to capture on film – the most notable of which was an ultra-mini skirted, long legged ...
... I have priorities. Milk and juice can be poured down the drain. Pouring beer out in Key West might be some kind of felony. I have to draw the line somewhere. Of course Gofer is on it. He will have a new fridge tomorrow. Sure. And Congress will pass a budget next month. I actually have to give the nod to Congress on this one.

Historical Traveler Reviews Heron House Court Key West
FLEUR DE KEYS WAS AWESOME
Wonderful expeirence. The staff is so attentive it was amazing. Larry(owner) if your reading this Jeff and George are worth their weight in gold. At cocktail hour 5:30-7 pm each night we met people form all over the country. Everyone we talked with said the same thing "we will return to Key West & we will stay at Fleur" its far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Duval street but close enough to walk to the local gay bar and resturants. I wouldn't even consider any place else.
My best experience in a KW B&B
Of all the Key West B&B's at which I have stayed over the years, my recent 3-night stay at the Fleur de Key outshined all others. First, I got a great deal on my room by booking a special on the FDK's website ($137 for a spaside king during low-season), which I highly recommend trying. Moreover, the FDK is a classy place: impeccably clean with splendid touches everywhere. There was a lot of comraderie among the guests at breakfast and at happy hour. I met new friends instantly. The guests were not "clickish," which is what I have experienced at other B&B's. The location is lovely and quiet, yet quickly accessible to the island's activity center. If you have a bike (the FDK rents them), you can get anywhere in a few minutes. I'll be back.
A great escape.
We stayed at the Fleur De Key for 5 nights at the end of April. Stressed and overworked, we really needed a place to relax and unwind. The FDK was the answer. We stayed in the owner's suite which was two levels. There was a really nice ground floor/living room and a loft style bedroom upstairs. Both rooms had access to the outside pool areas which made sitting in the sun and relaxing really quite easy. The bed in the bedroom was extremely comfortable and the overall decor was really nice. The property itself is done well and allows the guests many different places to sit. The staff is extremely helpful and very nice. It was the perfect escape. I would have loved to stay another week.
I dont recommend taking the advice of the last review. Fleur De Key is a wonderful place to stay. The place is top notch and is run like a mini Ritz-Carlton. It is in a quiet area of town, but yet within walking distance of all activities/attractions. Jeff and the rest of the staff are always working to make the place perfect. They have great information about where to go and what to do, which is especially nice for Key West first-timers (as we were on our trip) They have a daily spa-side happy hour where it is nice to hang out for a while and get to know a few people. The rooms are totally spotless and the beds and linens are top notch. Just make sure you're up by 10am because you'll miss breakfast!! I could see where the rooms on the main floor by the front desk may get a little noisey from time to time, but the whole place is only about 16 rooms so there really isn't that much traffic.
I can't believe some of the reviews listed for the Fleur de Key. Did we stay at the same place? We have been to Key West five times staying at either Big Ruby's or the Equator and have always had a great time. We were looking forward to our first stay at FdK but were disappointed to be given a room just off the entrance hall with our door barely five feet from the reception desk. Having listened to the loud noise from the office for a few moments we politely expressed concern to the man on the desk who said he would try to sort something out and would come back to us. He never did and thereafter he made a point of ignoring us.
Fleur de Perfection!!
We just returned from Key West (12/21/2003) and the Fleur De Key B&B was beautiful. It is well kept, clean and safe. Every day the owner had Laddi (hottie) painting something!! Breakfast was simple and appropraite; cocktail hour was splendid. Very casual place. Our room was just right. The housekeeeper kept the room very clean. The inn is located in a residential section of Key West so you don't hear a lot of traffic while sitting in the sun. The inn pool gets sun till about 1pm but if you want more just head down to Fort Zachary Taylor beach. Rent scooters from the Bicycle Shop on Truman or rent a bike right from the inn. Paradise Cafe is a great place for lunch. Eat at A&B Lobster, Cafe Marquesa, Mangia Mangia, Mangos, Hot Tin Roof, and La Tratorria you can't go wrong!
My partner and I visited the Fleur de Key guesthouse in the beginning of December. In a town known for its quaint, inviting gay guesthouses this hotel is a standout. The rooms are tastefully furnished and decorated in a Key West motif. Our room had double French doors that opened up to the veranda, very airy. The staff is professional and friendly. The buffet breakfast was great and there is a complimentary happy hour consisting of wines, beer and spritzers. There seemed to be a majority of couples both male and female which made for a relaxed atmosphere. If there are any cons it would be that Fleur de Key is a bit further from Duval Street than some of the other guesthouses although some may prefer this quieter part of town. Also, there is no parking but we found parking out front with no problem. All and all this is a superior facility and we will be back.
I had a good experience there, I felt I got what I paid for. The staff and other guests were friendly, the property is at a pretty good location, not too far from the action yet able to get some peace and quiet. My superior king room was a little cramped but adequate. Nice selection of movies (not adult) and magazines. My room had no tub but sit down shower with 2 seats and nice showerhead. Sunning deck faces street which kind of sucked, and pool/jacuzzi area was kind of small but not bad. Secured access building. Overall good experience, would definitely consider coming here again.
My partner and I stayed at the Fleur de Key several weeks ago for our 5th anniversary and we absolutely loved it. The resort is truly beautiful. I have to say I was a bit hesitant to stay at a guesthouse.
I have never stayed at a Guesthouse or B&B. I usually stay with large upscale hotels. I was overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity of the staff. They did everything for us. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the Fleur de Key, it was spotless. I highly recommend a visit to this fabulous Guesthouse.
This is the place to stay if you are a gay or lesbian traveler heading to Key West. Everything about the Fleur De Key is first class! While parking in Key West is not easy there were enough places in front to park. On street parking is all that is available but seemed to be ample. I will say that if you can get to Key West without a car, do it.
