Just left after 5 days 4 nights and sorry we had to leave. Christina was like seeing an old friend! Very friendly and helpful giving directions and booking excursions for us. Les was very helpful too! Good breakfast selection daily and homey, clean rooms! Close to everything! We would definitely recommend staying here.

We've stayed here four or five times, so you don't need to know much else. Knowles House is in a perfect location, walking or biking distance to everything, a three-minute walk to the wharf, next door to a great new Caribbean restaurant (Paseo), across the street from the wonderful Old Town Bakery, and a block away from Eaton Bikes.

We Enjoyed taking a different way "home" each evening to check out... More

Les and Paul really do put great care into making sure that every guest has a great experience at the Knowles House. We stayed in the Country French room, which was cozy, but perfect for the two of us. We looked forward to the morning breakfast and time on the patio. In afternoon, we'd have a glass of wine out...

This was our first trip to Key West (my husband and I). We had a GREAT time and Knowles House was a primary part of that! Christina was an amazing hostess, providing advice and knowledge for us Key West "newbies." We got the 5 night package and it was an awesome deal! The sunset sail was a highlight! Our room... More

Our one night stay (could have stayed much longer) was OUTSTANDING. What a quaint and welcoming B&B. Our room was very spacious, comfortable and meticulously clean. The breakfast, albeit buffet style, was varied, plentiful, scrumptious and very sustaining. The highlight of our stay was the B&B's manager and quintessential hostess Christina. What a bundle of joy, very friendly, knowledgeable and... More

We had 6 rooms over Christmas for a family birthday celebration. The rest of the group was staying elsewhere & kept dropping by during breakfast, since they got packaged bagels where they were. We had frittatas and french toast, pancakes and eggs & sausage, cereals & yogurt & fruit, not to mention never-ending coffee and three kinds of juice. Nobody... More
