Heron House Key West

Heron House


My last Key West vacation was the most incredibly exciting and Romantic Vacation to the island I have had in over ten times of staying there. Part, a large part, of the reason for this superior vacation has to be the hotel I chose for myself and boyfriend. The Heron House Key West is hidden in the tropical oasis a quarter block off of the popular Duval Street. You would never know you were so close to the hippest area of town while in your room though. It was quiet and serene. We like to travel to Key West every year or two. We've stayed at the Island City House which is located just down the street and very comparable. We were so close to Mallory square that we never missed a sunset at the festival. We felt perfectly safe walking back to the Heron House at all hours of the night. The pool was nestled discretely in the belly of the property and we spent most of our day’s right there reading and soaking up the Key West sun. On some in trip on the future we may stay at a bed and breakfast on the beach like the Dewey House which is supposed to the best and only beach front bed and breakfast in Key West. We have already made reservations for next year’s vacation at the Heron House.

The Heron House Key West was a pleasure to stay at. The room we rented was beautiful and complete with everything we needed for a fantastic vacation in Key West. The views were speckled with tropical foliage and people watching, the perfect Key West combination. It reminded us of the Paradise Inn which is another luxury hotel that is unique like the Heron House. We like the more local feel of these luxury type hotels. They have a lot of charm and character you just don't find in travel around this country anyway. The pool was more than refreshing and clean. I have stayed at properties in the past where the pool cleanliness left a lot to be desired. The Casa 325 has a great secluded pool and is hidden away right in the heart of old town and on Duval street. Nobody wants to wade into a fresh water pool only to avoid the numerous leaves and dead flower-seed droppings. No, the Heron House kept a very tidy property in all its rights. We felt that the staff was worth mentioning as well. The moment we arrived we were treated as though we they were very glad to have us staying with them, as if we were important or something. Well, more important than we actually are as customers anyway. Everything considered we can’t complain about a thing. The airline lost our luggage, but that wasn’t the Heron Houses fault!
