Well, I don't know where to start. When we booked the Avalon, we did know it was close to some attractions and to downtown Key West, but we had no idea! The Avalon is located on Duval Street which is kind of the life line of Key West. Within a 15 minute walking distance (slow walking!), you can reach the...

This was our 6th stay at the Avalon and as always we loved every minute! We love the staff and the accommodations are so comfortable that it feels as if you are at your home. The staff is very welcoming and full of great information about the island. Breakfast has always been good but this year staff added few items...

We are so happy you chose to stay with us again, and that we could provide that home away form home experience. It's important to us. I am glad you noticed the additions to breakfast.

My fiancé and I stayed at the b&b last weekend for a short getaway before my fall semester started and it was exactly what I needed! It was so homey and the bed in our room was SO comfortable, probably the best nights sleep I've had in a long time. It's on the quieter end of duval and has bike/scooter...

We stayed there for two nights, a really good choice! The owner was really kind, the room clean and large, good breakfast with several options. The hotel is perfectly located near the main street, in a quiet area! Free parking. Highly suggested!

We pulled up to the bed and breakfast and we were so excited because it was beautiful. The place was clean welcoming and a great buy to be so close to everything in key west but yet far enough away from everything loud. We had planned a sunset cruise the night we arrived and the location was perfect to walk...

On the south side of Duval Street, a perfect place to stay. Rent bikes or scooters across the street and explore this great Key . We stayed in the "Honeymoon" cottage in the back, and it was very pleasant. We even had a mascot in an iguana munching on leaves outside near the pool. Very nice breakfast served on the...

Thank you for your recent visit. You even got to see our elusive iguana. He has systematically destroyed our flowers but we love him anyway. Hope to see you again soon. We are closing in September for renovations including some to the pool deck, so hope you can have an even better experience next visit.

Stayed here with my wife may 2014. It's an absolute gem, it's an old style guest house with plenty of character, and really fits in with the general vibe of key west. The room we had was exactly what we imagined and had hoped for with antique furniture and a four poster bed. The staff couldn't have been more helpful!...

Thank you for reviewing us online and for staying one night with us. Happy you enjoyed our facilities and services and look forward to seeing you again next time. We agree one night in Key West is not enough. We have many guests who book just one night and then wish they had stayed longer. Our island offers so much...

After spending a night in South Beach Miami and getting ripped off in the process (see other review), we weren't really looking forward to our trip to Key West! From the minute we arrived at Avalon B&B, our humour changed for the better. Our hosts were friendly, room was beautiful and location was ideal. Fab front porch to have breakfast...
