Brava! The Knowles House B&B is fantastic. Everything a visitor to Key West should want if looking for an authentic stay. It is inviting, well-equipped, clean & fresh, and charmingly decorated. The intimate charm of a B&B combined w/ a private bathroom makes it more than comfortable. As for the staff, everyone was just lovely; heck, the service was impeccable. From the pool and patio, sundeck and lovely rooms to the yummy breakfast and happy hour, only steps away from all to-dos, it is a win! Thank you, ladies! We can't wait to come back. D&W

Property's Favorite Review
First time staying in Key West. We found this Cozy, Friendly B&B just steps away from everything. The house was cute with only 8 rooms. Our room was very spacious with a large bathroom. (Plenty of room) the house also had a nice soaking spa in the back hard that was great to just lounge in after walking the city all day. Happy hour was a great way for us to meet the other guest that were staying, and our daily breakfast was hot and tasty each day. Pam who was our Hostess was Fabulous. She was always attentive, always had a smile and was Very helpful in helping us find the free shuttle.(For the further parts of town)The house was only a five minute walk to the harbor and 10 minutes to Mallory Square/Duvalle street. We parked our car and walked everywhere. If your looking for a quiet place close to everything , with a wonderful friendly staff I would HIGHLY recommend Knowles house for your next stay.

Warm and quaint! Sun deck, mini-pool, cute rooms, free happy hour from 3PM - 5PM, knowledgeable staff and extremely friendly! Short walking distance to all the action. Lots of outdoor seating and space to enjoy the grounds. Free street parking near property too (parking fees can eat you alive in Miami and the Keys).

If you want the real feel of Old Town Key West, Knowles House is an excellent choice. Within walking distance of the Key West Ferry, and the harbor/marina area where you have shops and excellent restaurants. If you're looking for fancy, then the Knowles House is not what you want. If you want the charm and feel of Key West, then this B&B is it. The rooms are quaint with their own private bathroom. The backyard is serene with a heated spa with its waterfall. Fresh made and cooked on site breakfasts were very good. The hostess, Christina, was absolutely awesome. She makes everyone feel like they're home.

Charming historic b&b, could not have had a better experience. We've been coming down to Key West every year for our anniversary and always stay at a different place, but this one was so cozy and perfect, it might be our annual residency. Christina was amazing, answered all questions and was just a delight. The other two ladies were awesome, friendly and offered a very homey vibe. Breakfast was delicious and different every day. Bagels, yogurt, eggs, sausage, fritattas, you name it. PLUS they have a complimentary happy hour. The poolside and deck on the roof was a great way to end the day. Thanks again!

My wife and I stayed here for 6 days. It’s a cute historic property in need of a makeover. Our room had numerous large mold spots on the ceiling. The attached porch was rotted and dangerous. The place overall is tired and falling apart. The staff is pleasant and served hot and cold breakfast. The location is noisy, Eaton is a busy blvd and it’s next to an intersection. The price is a little less but I suggest spending a little more for a quality place.

My wife and I stayed 3 days at the KH B+B the completely enjoyed our visit. While the house is small, it has everything you need to have a relaxing is it to the Keys. The location is well placed in old Key West and we walked to most places we visited. We got in the small pool each evening and the happy hour lasted longer then posted! We like breakfast and loved eating by the pool/garden. We would come back - no issue.

Knowles House is an exceptional KW B&B. My wife and I showed up 4 hours before check-in time hoping to leave our luggage in order to get breakfast at Harpoon Harrys. Christina welcomed us at the door to let us know our room was already set for us. She gave us a quick tour of the grounds, offered us a couple of adult beverages, and gave us our room key. What an amazing first impression. Our entire 5 night stay was equally amazing. The staff here are all so genuinely nice and outgoing. They bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. The fresh baked breakfasts were great, the Country Cottage room was spacious and clean, the pool area was a nice spot to relax, and the location is perfect. Thank you Christina, and the entire staff, for making our 18th wedding anniversary week a memorable one. We've been to KW many times and stayed in many places and my wife and I agree that Knowles House would be near, or at, the top of our list for hospitality and comfort.

Nice place to stay with excellent service. Clean rooms and nice courtyard with a small pool. They have a sun deck which was nice, we sat up there and had a little visitor on the roof! Breakfast every morning with a lot of choices. Happy hour every day with beer and wine and they are very generous! It is a small place so you get to know the other guests whether you want to or not. We enjoyed it but if you want privacy siting outside this is not a place to come. Christine and Pam are very accommodating to all the guests. The hotel is near the marina area which was our favorite area, good restaurants and views. We stayed in the Malibu room which is poolside. The property could use some updates but it is very nice.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Knowles House. Christina welcomed me with a lovely glass of wine upon arrival and made me feel at home. Morning breakfast was a delightful occasion with cheerful servers. The beautiful courtyard around the pool offered a lovely setting for coffee. I used the pool in the evenings after long walks and sightseeing. If you're dying to know what those delightful Key West cottages look like on the inside, then look no further. The beautiful and quirky Knowles House B&B will give you a lovely and restful vacation. I loved that it is a block away from stop 15 on the convenient and free Duvall loop and an easy walk to major sights in Key West. Also loved the 24/7 access to ice water and coffee/tea! I'm 67 years old and was traveling alone and felt very safe. Can't wait to bring my husband with me the next time! Thanks so much for your hospitality!! Loved it!
