I was told about this place by a fellow bartender and man were they right! The views we perfect and everyone was over the top nice! The rooms we clean and the hammocks were exactly what I was looking for! I can't wait to plan my next vacation here!

Our family just returned from spending a week there. We rented 2 units #1 and #5. The owners made you feel very welcome, telling us to make ourselves at home and enjoy ourselves. They had 2 hammocks, that my grandchildren loved, a swing several lounge chairs all overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Their pool was okay, long but not very wide....

Our recent stay at the White Sands Inn was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever been on. If you are looking for an original Key West laid back vacation spot this is your place. The Inn is beach front with kayaks for rent right on the premises! My husband and I stayed in the Great Heron Room...

The place upon first view was nice and as previously mentioned, laid back and reminds one of 'old' Florida or any beach town... Right on the beach, nice patio area outside of my room (stayed in the key lime room) Bathroom/shower stall is small but recently renovated and has nice tile work. Heated pool, nice and everything you would need...

This was our first time to the Florida Keys, so I had no idea what to expect. We wanted something that was quintessential "old" Keys, and we got it. From the time we pulled into the small driveway/yard, the palm trees and coconut trees were swaying in the breeze, the brightly colored buildings perched on the sand with the deep...

I have been staying here for years and absolutely love this place, it's clean and quiet not a large resort type. Rachel has been the owner as long as I have been going there. They are very accomodating should you need directions or any other information. I will be going back to stay there again:)

This is paradise. You step out onto the beach from the rooms and are met with an incredible view. The water isn't great for swimming but you can head to a gorgeous beach at the state park next door. You can purchase cold sodas and waters in the office. A special place.

This hotel is the true meaning of a the Florida Keys, it is small private owned and its truly amazing! They welcome you by taking you to your room and showing everything and even laying towels out at the pool! We had so much fun with the other guests!!! I will always stay here now :)

This hotel is 'dated' but very nice and friendly. As many reviewers have stated, the owners are there but must be called. The 'beach' is in the Grassy Key area and thus not the pure white sand one might hope for, but still a quite nice view and overall location -- just don't expect too much. The rooms are somewhat...

I really loved this place and also the fact that they welcomed our little dog. Really laid back right on the water, very nicely run. Never disappoints as a short vacation getaway. Not a resort type place but old school Keys comfort quiet in a nice location. Not crowded or busy. Like the pool and quiet. Has few units so...
