We booked this trip based on the pictures, reviews and location, and was very happy
to find that it surpassed our expectations. The owners are very attentive and gracious hosts.
The landscaping was absolutely beautiful and the setting calm and serene. We plan on returning again and again and hope that it never changes. I would recommend that all guests have a slice of Kayla's Key Lime Pie. It's a slice of heaven!!

“Smallest guest house with the most to offer!”
Reviewed 16 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

We booked The Atlantis House for a stay during our 11-11-11 wedding on Smathers Beach. The photos and descriptions on the web site fail to describe what you will actually experience when you arrive.You are first met by the lush gardens surrounding the serene, Asian inspired gazebo and the fountains and lounge chairs, which will relax even the most stressed vacationers. On the days you need to recharge, this is one spot to spend some time.
The owners, Kayla and Steve Kessler, are two of the most gracious and accomodating hosts you will meet. Both will go out of their way to ensure your stay is the most fulfilling vacation you could imagine. Eighteen years in Key West have given them plenty of experience to recommend the best restaurants, sites to visit, tours, and the things to avoid on your trip. Steve is also a boat captain who can take you on fishing trips, snorkling, or sunset cruises. Catch some fish or lobster and Steve and Kayla will prepare you a fabulous dinner. Kayla is also a massage therapist! How can you go wrong?
The room we reserved (there are only two rooms) was the Master Suite. Kayla's impeccable taste for design will amaze you. A huge king bed and the inviting jet tub are just a couple of things that catch your eye upon entering. The art work, fresh flowers and tasteful decore will make you feel right at home. Small but oh so important aspects, like hand made imported Turkish bath towels, fluffy cotton bath robes, the sound system, and added amenities like beach towels, an iron, blow drier, and two bike per room make your stay memorable. (Take the bikes everywhere. It will make your experience much more fun)
Thoughtful touches like champagne and gorgeous flowers on our wedding day were just finishing touched on an incredible experience.
Do to a busy week with weddings and power boat races we had to move to another guest house on the island. What a disappointment compared to the Atlantis! Nothing we have experienced on Key West will stand up to the Atlantis!
Oh yeah......we'll be back.

“We heart Atlantis House!”
Reviewed 27 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

My best friend and I stayed in the Master Suite at Atlantis House for five nights in August. The room was beautiful, quiet and intimate. The location was perfect, and the whole island was accessible by bike (which is provided). This was one of the nicest vacations I have taken in a while and much of it was due to the comfort and ease of our room. Steve & Kayla were charming hosts. We will be back!

“The PERFECT place!”
Reviewed 2 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

This BEAUTIFUL home is the PERFECT place to stay in Key West! The rooms are gorgeous, the garden is lush and the owners are like the next door neighbors you wish you had! We stayed in the garden room which was the smaller of the two but it was perfectly comfy for us. We had a continental breakfast served to us in the garden each morning which started our day off the right way! Our last night Kayla and Steve, the owners, served up the freshest, most delicious lobster ever and the conversation made it that much better. Throughout our stay Kayla and Steve were there to make things accommodating and easy for us! Using their bicycles to get around the island was a great way to see everything at our own pace and in the order we chose. The location of the home is about 2 miles from Mallory Square, so you have the peace and quiet of not being on Duval Street but still very close to the partying. We wanted to go out on the boat with Steve but the weather was not up for the trip. We will definitely attempt that outing on our next trip to the Atlantis House. We wanted to send a thank you through trip advisor to Steve and Kayla for adding the right touch to make this trip that much better.

“Romantic, beautiful and a perfect get away!”

The Atlantis House was a very romantic location for our honeymoon. Steve and Kayla were wonderful host and provided such great hospitality. Steve's garden was absolutely magical and very calming. We really recommend the Eco Trip because Steve and Kayla were very knowledgeable about the island and showed us one of the best snorkeling spot. They also took us to Women Key to visit the bird sanctuary which was amazing. Key West was a very beautiful island and had lots of fun things to do, but it was nice to be able to escape to the Atlantis House to get away from the touristy part of the island. Steve and Kayla have created an enchanting Island Oasis.
