Les and Paul were amazing hosts! Very informative about parking near the house, explaining what was nearby, and offering to make reservations for us. We went to the beach and they provided us with beach chairs and umbrella! We were offered a beer or wine upon arrival. Courtyard, hot tub, and pool were great amenities! We didn't get to enjoy...

Les and Paul were great hosts. The service was very helpful and friendly and we loved the backyard pool and hot tub (to soothe our feet after a day of walking through Old Key West). Breakfast and Afternoon snacks were great and lots of tips on the best locations to visit in town and where to park for free, like... More

What a perfect place to get together with friends or family. Great location. Close enough to fun things, yet far enough to have a nice quiet night's sleep. We had so much fun. Loved the historic home and the beautiful outdoor area, and comfortable covered patio area. The outdoor area is a great gathering place! Very tropical, comfortable and beautiful!... More

We stayed here many years ago however I see the same owners are still operating it. It was a very nice B&B, quiet, comfortable and relaxing with the hot tub. The owners were very informative about downtown attractions and restaurants. Great place to stay.

We had a great time staying at Knowles House. Christina is an absolute gem and could not do enough to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. We arrived at the height of the spring break and Key West was swarming with tourists, but Knowles House was a quiet oasis in the midst of all the action. It is a... More

This was our 4th visit to Key West as a couple, having stayed previously at Heron House on Simonton and twice at the La Concha Crowne Plaza. We really feel like you don't get the true essence of Key West unless you stay at one of the funky, friendly, unique guesthouses. We love the harborfront area so selected Knowles House... More

In no small measure, the great time we had on Key West was the direct result of the hospitality we found from Christina, Les, Magda and all the guests at the Knowles House B&B. The warmth, comfort, friendship along with each morning's quiche was just about the best we've encountered at any bed and breakfast anywhere. In fact during one... More

Great location if you want to get away from the excitement of Duval St. yet close enough to walk to it. Boardwalk with all the boats and restaurants begins just a few blocks away. Hosts Les and Paul could not have been more welcoming and accommodative. This is a very small B&B but that is meant to be complimentary as... More

We spent four nights here in early February, and it was a great location from which to visit Key West. We were in the Caribbean room with a king size bed (VERY comfortable!) and lively Caribbean themed decor. It faced the charming small garden and was very quiet. Les and Paul and Christina were all delightful and helpful hosts, making... More

The owners, Les and Paul, do a wonderful job making you feel welcome. The rooms are very pleasant and the home made breakfast was very good. Knowles House is a short walk (about 3 blocks) from the Ferry dock. We enjoyed walking around town so their location allowed us to check out the island and go "downtown" without having to... More
