We were looking for reasonably-priced accomodations for two couples staying two nights in Key West. That's not easy, particularly in high season. I discovered Papa's Hideaway through Trip Advisor and the positive reviews were helpful, but it was one of the lower priced B&B's and it had availability, which most properties didn't have. That worried me. We booked Papa's cottage--a two bedroom house with a living room, dining room and kitchen. Each bedroom had its own bath, with stand-up shower. The cottage was located next to the heated pool and in a beautifully-landscaped tropical setting. It had a large wrap-around porch with ample seating, a hammock and a dining table and chairs. It overlooked the pool and breakfast terrace, where we could get the complimentary continental breakfast and bring back to our porch. A brick paver walkway led from the house to a private entrance to the property and our car parked just outside the fence.
The cost of the cottage was less than two rooms in the main house, and it offered so much more. OK, the house was old and the furniture very tired, but it was clean and the gorgeous setting made it easy to overlook the fact that this was not a luxury property. All four in our group were very satisfied with our choice of Papa's Hideaway.
