                                                                    Capt. Steve and Kayla

                                                                    We loved the Atlantis House!

                                                                    Damon P.

                                                                    The Master Suite was amazing. It was cozy and very comfortable. The inside was so elegant. It was just a short walk to the beach. Captain Steve and Kayla were very hospitable and easy to work with. Mrs. Kessler’s key lime pie was the best in town. She is also a massage therapist and offers massages. We enjoyed ours.

                                                                    The Atlantis House is beautiful with an awesome location! The Master Suite had everything we needed.

                                                                    Lorie H.

                                                                    Close proximity to beaches and walking/bike trails for going to the beach or town. The bikes are perfect for an easy cruise to all of Key West. Be sure to partake of Captain Steves fishing or snorkeling and Kayla provides a wonderful professional massage. Everything was better than we expected and we had a wonderful vacation. Will go there again for future trips! You will not be disappointed!

                                                                    Beautiful and relaxing!

                                                                    Cris W.

                                                                    Atlantis house is a little sanctuary in a quieter side of Key West near beaches and botanical gardens and butterfly gardens. What a beautiful property! the bedroom suite was spacious and beautifully decorated and the owners have cared for everything from fresh tropical flowers to the turkish towels and organic soaps in the bathroom. Huge master bath area that makes you feel truly pampered, and outside the room is a beautiful garden area with several seating areas creating a cool oasis of relaxation. They provide bikes to use during the whole stay and that was a great way to see different parts of the Island! We really enjoyed the personal attention and hospitality from Captain Steve and his wife Kayla, and especially the bonus of Kayla's key lime pie! We will definitely stay here again.

                                                                    Capt. Steve and Kayla

                                                                    Great Rental!

                                                                    Maggie B.Austin

                                                                    We loved this rental! We stayed in the Master Suite of the guest house, which is much larger than a hotel. It's very close to the beach and Duval Street. The amenities are stellar: bicycles, clean beach towels daily, and coolers. It's so close to everything, we just biked every where and saved a fortune on the cost to take Uber everywhere (which I would recommend over taxis - it's much cheaper, and the experience is much more pleasant). Even though it's close to everything, it's extremely quiet. Also, Steve and Kayla were the most amazing hosts! They picked us up from the airport, picked up our trash daily, and even made the bed each day. We couldn't have been happier with the rental!

                                                                    Awesome Key West location

                                                                    Brian L.

                                                                    We had a great stay at Atlantis House! One block from the beach, three blocks from Salute' On The Beach for great meals.

                                                                    The Master Suite was very spacious and all the amenities of home. Very Clean and well appointed. Captain Steve and Kayla were great hosts. Cleaned our room daily, fabulous Key Lime pie on arrival and bikes to ride. The backyard patio was very relaxing, a place to eat, a place to sun, a place to visit with a bottle of vine and a romantic gazebo!! Truly an awesome stay!

                                                                    Owner's Response:
