Only half a block away from world famous Duval Street is the bed and breakfast you’ve been waiting your whole life for. Marrero’s Guest Mansion is a stunningly charming little B & B with over a dozen well appointed and comfortable rooms to choose from. And not only do you get an incredibly gorgeous lodging, but you are in the heart of Old Florida, historic Key West! Built in 1889 by Francisco Marrero (a famous cigar maker of the time) his intent was to create something so beautiful that the love of his life (Enriquetta) could not resist but to marry him. And so she did; bearing him eight children in their many years together. When Francisco passed, Enriquetta and her family were forced to leave; but not without her first promising to always remain in spirit. Some staff and guests maintain that she has kept her benevolent pledge to this very day.
[php snippet=1]For those visitors with an interest in the paranormal, try a night or two in Room 18. A beautiful room with a glass brick shower and super comfy king size bed, it is the room that is said to be Enriquetta’s favorite. It also has a lovely veranda overlooking the grounds which will just call to you on those balmy Florida nights. Room 17 sings to the romantic in all of us with its colorful stained glass accent windows and warm mauve walls. All of the furniture in 17 is lush and welcoming, upholstered to fit well with the period nature of Marrero’s Guest Mansion. If being in Key West makes you feel more tropical, stay in Room 20. Painted with the colors of the surrounding sea, Room 20 will relax you the moment you step foot inside. With a big king size bed, a veranda, and stairway to garden and pool area, you are guaranteed a tranquil and enjoyable stay.
Aside from the guest rooms, this gorgeous Victorian mansion has lots to offer the weary traveler.

For couples looking for a once in a life time destination or locals wanting to escape for the weekend, Marrero’s Guest Mansion has plenty to offer with its prime location, fantastic setting, and beautiful accommodations.
