This is a no frills property that was exactly what we were looking for. Not to close to Duval but a very quick walk to great food, nightlife and activities. The rental company is great to work with and offered transportation to the property and back to the airport.

I unexpectedly ended up here with my girlfriend on an impromptu trip. This was a great place to relax and recharge for a few days. If you're looking for a typical hotel experience, this is not the place. If you want to feel like you're staying at a friends beautiful vacation home, this is the place! It's just a few... More

After reading the reviews for Papa's Hideaway, and having stayed in many different bed and breakfast, we had high expectations for our three night stay. We had booked several months in advance of our stay and had early on corresponded with the owner on a couple of occasions. Sometime after we booked, the owner sold out and the property was... More

Recently I had the pleasure of spending fourteen days at the lovely, private, gated, quiet Papa's Hideaway. I never expected anything so relaxing close to everything. While renovations were going on to renew the grounds and buildings, the workers finished everything quickly, efficiently and obtrusivelessly. The housekeeping staff were pleasant and pleasing. I would like to be able to return... More

Everything at Papa's was perfect. The salt water pool (which changed from the last time I was here) was an awesome addition. Love the new patio furniture out by the pool and on the private patio. The management team was great and even gave us a ride to the airport. Can't wait to come back next year!

Ok B&B. Cozy and full of charme. No staff at the proporty and you have to Pick up the key elsewhere. Would we go there again? Year maybee but It's not cheap compared to quality. Breakfast was notning to write about. I would rather do without. Nice clean pool.

This is not a hotel or even a B&B; it is a (very nice) private home that was divided up into four separate units for lodging and run by a management service. As a result, there may be fees and basic information that is not disclosed or poorly disclosed in advance and services are extremely limited. We arrived for our... More

Our guesthouse is defined by our level of service that perhaps this guest did not take advantage of. While still being a quaint historic guesthouse, our commitment to guest service is of the highest levels. We offer full concierge services, complementary airport/ferry transportation, business services complete with a guest work station in our Old Town Key West offices and much... More

My wife and I just stayed at Papa's Hideaway last weekend for Lobsterfest. We had never stayed prior to the property being sold to the property management company, so I really have nothing to compare it to, but I can only assume that having the actual owners there would have provided the ability to talk and interact with locals and...

Many thanks for your review. One of the things that we are trying to ensure that we do not lose is our interaction with our guests and to ensure that they are aware of the expanded service offerings that the property can now provide to guests. Out of our Duval Street offices, we offer a full concierge service, complementary shuttle,... More
