We flew down to Key West for a quick visit in April. Gulf Coast Airways flies from Naples Municipal to Key West in 35 minutes, and Linda had us checked into our wonderful 2-bedroom cottage at the Merlin Guest House exactly 1 hour after we left Naples! The cottage had everything we could have needed and it was spotlessly clean. The beds were comfy and cozy and we had room to spread out a bit.
Linda pointed us in the direction of lunch at Caroline’s, just a short stroll from our Key Lime Bike Tour. She was right—fresh, delicious and the drinks were icy cold. After our bike tour, we headed back to Merlin Guest House to relax and shower before dinner at Louie’s. Linda was off, but her lovely colleague got us a cab and waved us off for a great outdoor dining experience. The next day, we had a delicious breakfast in the guest house garden and dropped our bags at the desk while we headed out for some water adventures. By the end of the afternoon, we needed a cool place to relax, and we were welcomed warmly by the staff at Merlin Guest House. Relax by the pool, she said. Have an iced tea, she offered with a smile. I’ll call you a cab in a half hour! And so we did.
Perfectly located a long block off Duval, clean and inviting, Merlin is a great home base in Key West. We will definitely return. Maybe we’ll see you there!By: Linda on April 10, 2017
