Ocean House exceeded all our expectations. The grounds were gorgeous, and the staff were accommodating without being obtrusive. We stayed in the Key Lime room, and it was all we needed....full refrigerator, nice sized shower, and soft bed. Days were spent on the beach and kayaking...you rarely saw other guests. Breakfast was delicious and filling...never waited more than 15 minutes.... More
