... wel eens een pizza mee naar huis bij de italiaan, maar ontbijt of overschot van frieten en steak enzo.... Neen: we zulle ze nooit helemaal begrijpen die Amerikanen. Het zwembad was ook niet te druk en zalige ligbedjes. Het was wel warm vandaag... Rond de 35 graden denk ik dus we waren blij dat we een zwembad in de buurt hadden. Nadien hebben we besloten om de tocht naar Duval Street eens te voet te doen ...
... for lunch and a swim at the Bahia Honda State park which apperntly has the best beach in america we chilled out there for the day went swimming and lay on the beach then we went to key west. On the first night there we went to Sloppy Joes Bar and had some beers and they had an amazing band of about 7 that were all family, they were pretty impressive, and we could smoke inside there. We then when to Ricks bar and they had karaoke ...
... we had thought 'chips' meant hot chips or "fries" but it was a little bag of plain potato chips. We were shocked. The can of coke was the only thing that we weren't shocked by. We were going to have dessert but figured it would probably be served in an eggcup so decided against it. Anyway, $11 later (including an undeserving, but included in the bill tip), totally dissatisfied we went and got sandwiches ($2.79 each) from CVS. I don't know if it was just the hot dogs there ...
... water views throughout the Keys. At Key West, we visited the most southernest point in the continental USA and toured the Old Town which is filled with old charm mansions from the 1800's.We ran out of time to visit the Hemmingway mansion where Earnest was known to keep manx cats where coincidentally one such specimen was a resident at our ...
... mix of full cream and milk. It felt very strange eating cereal with cream on it – and not very healthy! Whilst we were having breakfast we heard leaves rustling and things dropping into the little lake/pond that ran behind our tent. On closer inspection, we spotted a huge iguana in the tree (looked more like a miniature dragon with spikes running all down its back). We were relieved that the small lake as between us and it, but It then climbed down the tree ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Key West Harbor Inn
Going back again this year
my wife & I spent our 30th anniversary here last year & we're going back again this July for our 31st. I stumbled on this place while searching the web, and decided to try it out.....what a wonderful vacation! It's so close to the harbor, restaurants & attractions, but once you're inside the gate, it's as if you're in another world.
Laid Back and Wonderful!
We weren't sure what to expect because the B&B does not advertise. But, as soon as we stepped into the carribean courtyard and were warmly welcomed by Steve and Alexis we knew we had made a good choice. The Peurto Rican Suite was wonderful - private, king bed, clean, nicely decorated, private porch, etc. Excellent location - close to everything and yet quiet and private. This B & B is a MUST!
Beyond All Expectations!
We just got back from a 25th Anniversary trip to the KW Harbor Inn.
(4/2/04) All we can say is "WOW!!!" We had done a lot of net-searching, etc and decided to give the Inn a try. We were NOT disappointed. It surpassed our expectations. Steve and Alexis provide a beautiful and romantic tropical setting that is extremely private. They are available to offer help with plans but are in no way pushy or intrusive. In fact, even though the Inn was full (14 rooms-no children or Spring Breakers allowed) we felt that we had our own little oasis in paradise. The pool, with its coral waterfall, is warm and inviting and there is a large jacuzzi tucked away for privacy. The rooms are tastefully decorated (with poster beds) and the entire place is immaculate.
Breakfast by the pool is more than you will need to start the day and Happy Hour is much more than wine or beer! The Inn is literally steps away from the harbor and just around the corner (2 streets) from Sloppy Joe's, on Duval St. What a location! We had the ultimate romantic getaway for 5 nights and 6 days at the Harbor Inn and would return in a heartbeat! We hope to return someday soon. We DEFINTELT recommend the KW Harbor Inn if its romance and privacy you're looking for.
Who could ask for anything more???
Thought we died and went to heaven! Alexis and Steve and all the staff were the best anyone could ever hope for. When we return to Key West which is a sure thing ,we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else.When you have hosts that love what they do it shows in so many ways. I feel like we have made new and wonderful friends and thank them for a wonderful experience.
Best of Key West-hands down....
Steve, Alexis and Leonardo are the best! From check-in to check-out the experience was wonderful! As a single female visiting Key West for business and pleasure, the gated and private grounds made me feel secure. The gents were most delightful and other guests became friends for the week sharing stories of past visits, etc. This is the best kept secret in Key West...I have visited Key West since 1996 and by far, this place has it all...cleanliness, personable and trusting staff, a great breakfast, happy hour, location is tops, and hosts that will know your name on your next visit.
The very best place to stay!
The Key West Harbor Inn is definitely the BEST place to stay if you want to have the time of your life! Steve and Alexis are incredible hosts, and the rooms, breakfast and happy hour are the best!
Fantastic Harbor Inn
the harbor In is THE best B & B my wife and I have ever stayed in.
There are some fancier but none better. The location is the best, being right beside the harbor and many of the best restaurants. The plantings (very think vegatation) make you feel like you are a million miles from anywhere. Breakfast is very nice served around the pool. The happy hour makes you want to forget going to the docks for sunset celebrations.
Nothing gets better than sitting in the spa soaking with a glass of wine and fine music after a long day of walking around. What a great place. We'll be back soon.
My husband and I spent two days at the Harbor Inn in Key West - definitely not enough time. The inn is very quaint, small and quiet. The foliage surrounding the inn is quite spectacular. A sumptuous breakfast was provided as well as a complimentary happy hour in the afternoon. The rooms are quaint, from small to quite large with wet bars. Our compliments to our hosts Steve and Alexis.
This is the second time that we've come to the Harbor Inn. My thoughts before arrival were that maybe the second time around would not be as good as the first, well I was completely wrong. As soon as we walked into the property it felt like home. The gardens, the room, the whole atmosphere was simply great! No more doubts, this will be our home away from home from now on!!! Thanks to Steve and Alexis and the Gang!John & Peggy
Charming and just perfect!
I stayed at the Harbor Inn in August 2002. It exceeded my expectations in every way. The decor was simple and elegant yet relaxing and embodied the spirit of the Keys. The atmosphere of the entire Inn is intimate and relaxing; very quiet, yet located within easy walking distance to many restaurants and the harbor. They provided an EXCELLENT free breakfast with yummy fruit, as well as a complimentary happy hour every afternoon. The room was very clean and had been recently renovated. We loved the details that the Harbor Inn offered, including the CD player in the room. This is a charming, relaxing getaway and we will definitely return!
