Travel Blogs from Key West
Spent 5 days up and down the Florida Keys, including one night in Key West at the Eden House. Lots of sunshine and umbrella drinks. Sue and I are starting to adjust to this vacation thing.
... their famous breakfast at the bar. Pepe's is a great place to go for breakfast it is very small and quaint and very tidy. We sat at the bar and talked to many locals were from the area and hearing about their life stories of struggle and success. We made a friend or two and even then Billybob the cat. Soon after we are on our way back to our bed-and-breakfast and our mission this morning is to secure a pair of bicycles and start ...
It's only 100 miles from the southern tip of the Florida mainland to Key West but as much of it is 40-50mph limits the journey takes well over 2 hours. Fortunately it is a beautiful drive over more than 60 islands all connected by the "highway" US–1, including the famous 7-mile bridge. The water is a beautiful turquoise and the views are spectacular. We actually didn't do very much while we were here, instead enjoying 4 days of rest, with ...
... think we had be up for 20hrs! Jet lag kicked in for The grown ups at 3:30am and about 5:30 for Z&T! But an early breakfast and then a super long walk all the way down South Beach stopping to look at Jellyfish! (No swimming today!) We had a quick drink and then back to check out and set off for The Keys. We drone north so we could go all the way through Miami and up the beaches. About an hour ...
... clothes. But the sun was shining; it was MUCH warmer than back home. So we headed off to the Southernmost Butterfly Museum known as the “Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory”. Not that we have visited a huge number of butterfly houses, but, this one is our favorite. The butterflies appeared to really LOVE Casey’s red sweater! We were surprised by several interesting birds. The birds were ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eden House Key West
Great Honeymoon !
We were married on the beach at sunset and stayed at Eden House on our honeymoon. Very laid back and relaxing! Our room was clean and comfortable. We had a wonderful time and are planning to return to the Eden House in May to celebrate our 1st anniversary.
Garden of Eden
If you're looking for a place to kick back and forget all your cares, Eden House is exactly what you're looking for. Friendly staff go out of their way to see that your stay is a pleasant one. Beautifully landscaped, clean, and affordable, Eden House will hook you and keep reeling you in year after year. It's truly addictive, as is the beautiful island of Key West. We are already planning our next trip.
Expect the unexpected!
The Eden House HotelDo not expect the Eden House to be a five star resort, however you better expect to enjoy the very laid back and relaxed atmosphere. I am hooked on the Eden House. I have stayed there 8 times and it feels just like home. The rooms are a bit on the small size and could use more storage space for clothes, but this is more than offset by the friendly and helpful staff, impeccable grounds, great housekeeping and a daily happy hour. Make sure to hook up with Mike Eden (the owner) and introduce yourself to him; he is an excellent resource for information about Key West. If you like to take an afternoon snooze while on vacation, try the hammock area and listen to the sounds of the soothing waterfall, but make sure to be up in time for happy hour!
Eden House es Primo
We have been going to Key West at least once, more often twice, a year since '98. Our second adventure found us at Eden House and it's been a love affair ever since. Mike Eden and the entire staff are the best. My wife always says being in Key West and staying at the Eden House let's her mind breath. It's true, you can't feel more comfortable or have that safe homey feeling any where like you do at Eden House. "Stay once and you'll stay more than twice". Peace
Friendliest place on the friendliest island.
Staying at Eden House is just like going to stay at a good friend's home, if your friend lives in paradise! The atmosphere is so laid back and relaxing that I actually forgot what day it was! The staff, lead by owner Mike Eden, are genuinely caring, friendly and willing to help in any way they can. There's a feeling of community among the guests. Many people return year after year, and when you return you're sure to see familiar faces. The complimentary Happy Hour, by the pool, is a great time to get to know other guests and make new friends. The accomodations are very comfortable and clean. The grounds are lush and fragrant. If you've never smelled a Passion Flower, you're in for an amazing treat! Anywhere you go you can hear a water fall. I don't want to stay anywhere else!
The only place to stay in Key West !
This place is a real treasure in the tropical paradise of Key West. There are room types for everyone's budget and the location could not be better. The rooms are clean, the grounds are beautiful and Mike Eden and the entire staff are wonderful. I have had the pleasure of staying at Eden House multiple times over the past 6 years and there is no doubt why this place does a considerable amount of repeat business. On all of my visits to Eden House there are familiar faces among the guests and the staff really makes you feel like one of the family. Definitely give this fantastic place a try....you will not be disappointed.
Comfortable, Casual, & Social
We decided on this place after checking out their website...and it was the best decision we could have made! If you're looking for a place to kick back, relax, and be entertained.... Key West and the Eden House are definately it. Mike and his staff are more than happy to point you in the right direction no matter what your looking for. The rooms are clean, cool, and inviting. The grounds are covered in swinging chairs, hammocks, and lounge chairs. We're definately planning a return trip!
Couldn't Have Asked For More
We just returned from a trip to Key West & Eden House. Our room was immaculate, the grounds were impeccable and the staff couldn't be friendlier! The complimentary happy hour was perfect for socializing with the other guests and more welcoming than a continental breakfast. We had a fantastic time - we're already planning our next trip back!
A true Key West experience
PERFECT! The staff is the best! They go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure you are happy and comfortable! From semi-private rooms with a shared bath to the jacuzzi suite, each room is perfectly suited to individual travelers! Something for everyone's budget! The daily happy hour is a big bonus!
Layed back and relaxed
Our stay at Eden House was totally relaxing. The staff was there to meet all your needs. Ask a question, someone has an answer. The artificial waterfalls (6) with all the palm trees makes a soothing tropical setting. Mike, Bob, Colleen, Courtney, Sasha, Olga and the rest of your hosts will definitely treat you right. There is a room for everyone's budget. Rent the bicycles, they are easier to get around on. Yes , we will go back.
