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

The whole house was spotless and the hot breakfast was a great start of a busy day. My room was charming and bed so comfortable I... More

Overall a nice B&B for the value. We were greeted when we arrived and felt welcomed throughout our visit. Christina was a big help with suggestions and advice throughout our stay. Enjoyed the hut tub every morning and the sun deck for some quiet reading. Our room was comfortable and clean and breakfast was good. We liked the location (1... More

I can't say enough good things about the Knowles House. When we walked in the door we were immediately greeted by Les, one of the owners, and welcomed us like we were long lost family. The facility is old, built in the 1800's, but immaculately clean. The pool and garden area is a great place to chill, do nothing and... More

Pool size laughable- slightly bigger than most jacuzzis (in fact, we presumed it wasn't the pool for that reason). Room size adequate, yet smell of mildew/moisture prevailed in at least three rooms. Tropical climate is NOT an acceptable excuse for this-- simply poor attention to true cleanliness and proper dehumidification. Breakfast was unacceptable: Was promised pancakes, and saw one (single)... More

Of course we were so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We really try hard to make every guest's stay as wonderful as possible. Some of your disappointment was avoidable if you had just been a little more diligent when you were selecting a place to stay and checked the amenities a little more... More

We stayed in one of the poolside rooms which was a good size and very clean. The atmosphere is very laid back just like the Keys. Location is great, about 5 blocks to Duvall St. And 1 to the harbor. Staff very helpful in pointing you in the right direction for whatever plans you may have. Not very far from... More

We spent our 20th Anniversary here over Halloween. A truly lovely place, great owners and management. Interesting guests, who have also been there multiple times and keep on returning.As all Guest Houses in Kew West, built in 1860 +/- it is small, but comfortable. Location is terrific for walking Key West, east/west and north/south! Convenient to all. Some really excellent... More

the owners Les and Paul were away during our stay, however their manager Christina is a godsend to them, What a lovely lady. Greeted with wine and beer on arrival and a quick tour of the facilities, Christina cannot do enough for you. We has the Paris room (next to the small pool) which was large, clean and very comfortable.... More
