A Secluded Hideaway Destination for Honeymoons in Key West
Your introduction to the Gecko’s Garden, our most luxurious Garden Cottage King Suite, is filled with excited anticipation. You’ve seen the pictures and projected yourselves into them as you’ve planned your Escape. Leaving the bustle of Duval Street behind as the heavy front doors of the inn close securely behind you, you travel the length of the hushed Main House corridor, each step distancing you farther from the Real World. Emerging upon the back porch to a vista of riotous greenery with a sparkling, waterfall pool as focal point, you feel transported.
Winding your way along the garden path, you glimpse your cottage, the color of orange sherbet, and sense that you are approaching a very special place, indeed. Your first step through the Gecko’s French doors validates your perception. A reeded ceiling vaults to frame the treetop view above a sumptuous, king-size Empress Bamboo canopy bed, adorned with impossibly soft linens and draped in a cloud of gauzy netting. Surrounded by accommodations most worthy of a luxury hotel, you know you’ve made the right choice.
Later … as evening falls, soft music and sensuous lamplight set the mood as paddle fans languidly stir the fragrance of jasmine wafting on balmy evening breezes. A second set of French doors opens to the secret garden of your oh-so-private hideaway, where moonlit moments of blissful seclusion await, your heated and spa-jetted plunge pool reflecting a million stars in the tropical sky overhead.
Luxuriously indulgent intimacy. Unparalleled ambience. The Gecko’s Garden. How romantic can it get?
Guests please note: The house adjacent the Pineapple Cottage is under renovation. Construction noise in the garden and particularly in the Gecko’s Garden and Pineapple Hideaway may be heard 8AM-7PM weekdays and 9AM-5PM Saturdays and Sundays. We regret that this is beyond our control and apologize for any inconvenience it may cause our guests. It will probably last through the end of 2015 and possibly into the early part of the new year. If you anticipate that this will interfere with the enjoyment of your visit, we invite you to forego reserving. If you already have reservations and have misgivings about this issue, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
