Is it time to go back yet?
The Cypress House Hotel, where my husband and I enjoyed a glorious long weekend, is everything that a boutique hotel should be … and more! It is beautifully appointed, perfectly situated, and staffed by a warm, welcoming, and knowledgable team. The hotel is a noted historic property, and the team has taken great care in preserving its gorgeous 19th-century character (Edison bulbs in the porch lights! Original Dade County pine walls!) while updating it with modern, state-of-the-art amenities (Flat screen TVs! Rain showers! A glistening swimming pool!). Although just steps from historic and famed Duval Street, we spent just as much time enjoying the lush foliage and serene spaces at the Cypress House as we did on the town. We particularly enjoyed lounging on the quiet porches on sunny afternoons, partaking in the delicious and varied breakfast spread, and chatting with other guests at the complimentary “liming hour” where cocktails and locally inspired apps kept us all happy and full.
Throughout our stay staff was always attentive and friendly, and even helped us out when we wanted to rent bikes for a ride around the breezy island.
It was simply lovely to be able to stay close to the “action” of Key West, yet have the pristine privacy of this gorgeous hotel to go back to for a respite.
Our first visit to the Cypress House will definitely not be our last!
