This is without a doubt one of the sweetest B&B's in key west. Christina and Les really make you feel like your part of the family. Quaint atmosphere, comfortable and relaxing. Great location in Old Town. Within walking distance to everything! We highly recommend the Knowles House B&B!!!

Lovely, warm, friendly hosts! That's just for starters. Location is unbeatable. Just far away to be peaceful yet only a short walk from all the action. Clean, comfortable and prettily decorated bedroom (the country French), lots a welcoming little touches and extras and the best breakfast I've had in Key West. Will repeat. Oh yes.

We stayed here in Key West as a last minute vacation plan as our cruise was cancelled 2 days before departure. This place really is excellent. The rooms are comfy, the home cooked breakfast is really delicious, and there is great variety, and all the staff are incredibly friendly and helpfull. Definitely stay here if you are visting Key West.

We spent 2 nights at Knowles 8/9th of April. We had a fab time. Les and Paul were lovely helpful hosts. Troy was very friendly too! The room was small but charming. The bed very comfortable. Breakfast was more than adequate and coffee was available at anytime. We also had a very welcome glass of wine before we went out... More

Lovely clean airy rooms, a beer by the plunge pool or a snooze on the sun deck. Christina lights the morning up when she arrives knowing everyones names &... More

My friend and I had never been to Key West so I trusted other reviews when booking. The location is convenient to the west end of the island. However, you can be in the heart of the action within 10 minutes walk. Christina and the rest of the staff were excellent. It felt like visiting friends and family. Perfect if... More
