Cypress House was an ideal location for our three days in Key West. We wanted something close to Duval Street but not in the middle of it. The location was perfect for a quick walk to Duval as well as Mallory Square to see sunset. Our room was adorable – full of character from this older home but nicely updated as we had a bathroom with modern amenities and a flat screen TV. We had room #1 in the gray Cypresswood home. It’s a lovely room on the first floor with two doors to the front porch – the perfect place to sit and relax after a long day exploring Key West. Other reviews indicated these front rooms could be noisy as they face the road, and while we could hear light traffic noise, it really wasn’t an issue for us. The décor is lovely – they did a wonderful job decorating these rooms. The king bed was very comfortable. There is no closet, but a wardrobe with hanging space and a dresser is available – this was just fine for us. The small refrigerator in the room was nice to have as well.
The swimming pool is small but the perfect place for a quick dip (probably not ideal for sun bathing because of the trees, but that is not why we were there). There is a nice outdoor covered seating area where you can enjoy Happy Hour or Breakfast in the mornings. Everyone associated with Cypress House was very nice and accommodating. Our friends stayed there as well and we all agreed it was the perfect place. They stayed in the room right off the pool (room #9 we think), and were delighted how secluded and quiet it was. You have to park a few blocks down the road, but we were able to park the car when we arrived and did not need again it until we were ready to leave. The next time we make it back to Key West – we will definitely stay here. Key West is so full of character – I can’t imagine staying in a regular hotel while visiting this area.By: S Snyder December 2, 2014
