Drift Wrecklessly

Dare to Drift Wrecklessly

Somewhere between the southern edge of the Continental U.S. and ordinary, that’s where you’ll find us. On an island whose story unfolds like the greatest adventure ever written.

It was unchartered territory for fearless explorers. A treacherous reef-laced pass for renegade sailors. A treasure-filled retreat on the boundaries of lawlessness and discovery for rebellious shipwreckers. And now, the home of an unrivaled Key West experience—Barbary Beach House Key West.

It’s the kind of place where seizing the day can be as high-stakes as a Hemingway-esque trophy catch or as low-key as a day on the sand. Because when the beach is your front yard, and the ocean your home, you prioritize life a little differently. After all, life’s too short to not drift wrecklessly, once in a while.

What Our Guests Have to Say

Great Time
We had a great time. We loved the trivia and ghost stories. All of the staff was great. We will definitely recommend The Barbary House to anyone heading to Key West. We're from Naples, Fl so we hope to return soon.

Great Hotel Staff
Stayed here on a layover with my crew. Great employees and awesome service from Seth at the Tiki bar. Highly recommended. Also very close walk to the beach which is right across the street. Clean rooms and great upkeep.

So Happy!
We are so happy we chose this resort to stay at while in Key West! Public beach right across the street and the resort offers lots of excursions to take or just relax by the pool and have some good fruity drinks!
