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

This B&B is very quaint and eclectic with every space available filled with something interesting. Christina, who runs the inn, was wonderful and very accommodating. She went out of her way to make our stay amazing. We stayed in the English Cottage room that opened up onto the pool patio. The room was large and very comfortable and we had... More
