For my son's 16th birthday we hit Key West. I was able to make reservations at the Knowles House B&B online about a week before traveling without any issues. The B&B is very comfortable and the owners, Les & Paul, went out of their way to accommodate us. We did not have any set agenda but with Les' and Paul's help, we were off on multiple adventures, tours and sightseeing trips. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the patio, soaking in the spa and chilling in the pool after returning from Duval Street.
We loved the place and will stay there again with the whole family next time.
OK, time for the nitty-gritty... (Obligatory criticisms)
Only two small issues:
* Small TV not in a terribly comfortable location on top of the armoire but had all the channels, was a flat-screen with great picture and sound. Could be remedied with a tilt.
* Bathtub had a crack in the center which was covered by a tub mat. This was not a problem for my son as he used the outdoor shower everyday.
I could go on about how much we enjoyed the B&B but the bottom line is - stay there, you will be happy.
Patio rooms are quiet and peaceful!

You and your son are just a great duo. It isn't always that we get a father and teenage son who get along so well. It is a gift, treasure it. Everyone enjoyed your humor and company, including us. We hope to see you again. Actually, after meeting you and your son, we are anxious to meet your wife and daughter. I bet that they are great too!

As for the crack in the tub, it happened just before you checked-in. We knew about it, but there wasn't anyway to immediately fix it -- it is a fiberglass tub and not easily or quickly repaired -- and we didn't have anywhere else to put you guys. We did not want to spoil your vacation at the last minute. We determined that the crack was not a danger to our guests and just decided to brazen it out, since what ever water leaked through the crack was not going to do any real harm until we could get it fixed. I am truly sorry; I should have told you what that was all about. As for the TV, thanks for your suggestion. Since I don't watch TV in that room, I didn't realize that it was uncomfortable to watch. We have remedied that. We appreciate your telling us. We really want to make Knowles House as nice as we can for great people like you. Please come back to see us again.
