This is an extraordinarily unusual but most visually attractive property on the southernmost tip of Key West. Once a glorious family house, it became a hostelry and then a museum. Now it is an adults-only B&B, very conveniently located at the southern end of Key West's main shopping road, Duval Street, and within a 10-minute taxi ride of the airport....

Breathtakingly beautiful hotel overlooking the ocean! Our room was on the third floor with a full view of the pool, gardens and the ocean. It was like a dream come true.

This was our second stay at the Southernmost House. At first we were disappointed not to have a room in the main house but upon seeing our second floor room in the Lopez House, we changed our mind. Large room with king size bed, nice modern bathroom and shower, Flat screen TV, super cool AC, and a large balcony overlooking...

I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely Victorian hotel which invokes a feeling of calm and glimpse into a slower pace of leisure. The room was well appointed and had great views of the pool, beach and ocean. The outdoor bar affords the same relaxed vibe (Kudos to Karl). Its a short walk down Duval to explore restaurants...

Key West was a new adventure and booking a room at The Southernmost House was the perfect start to this adventure. Our room was on the third floor and included the turret area.

Admittedly we were friends of guests and only had drinks at the bar. But the Margaretta's were awesome and the views spectacular. Karl was personable and welcoming. Grounds and building spectacular. Side street noise made it not a 5 but great time anyhow.

The Southernmost House was nearly idyllic. It’s right on the ocean. The heated pool is lovely. The house is old-school Victorian opulence with the right blend of Key West informality. Perfect! We were enjoying EVERYTHING about it. We even struck it off with the caretaker, a nice young lady who offered us thoughtful tips on exploring the Key West nightlife....

The grounds of this vintage, modernized, mansionesque B&B are very beautiful with a lovely ocean view. You can have your breakfast on the back porch of the main house overlooking the oceanfront pool or at any of the tables closer to the surf if you prefer.
