This was my second visit and my friend and I had the cottage for 4 nights. We were present for the ownership change over and I'm pleased to report that the new manager did continue to provide breakfast and even generously offered to drive us to the airport. I will miss the prior owners, Fred and Andrea who were wonderful and I hope this is a great change for them and their family.
As always the garden and pool were tranquil and lovely. More than that, the intimate setting allows you to connect with the other (usually, low key and wonderful) guests if you want to or just keep to yourself if not. I have met terrific people at Papa's that I will enjoy for life.
For the rooms, I only regretted we did not have more friends with us to enjoy the cabin. Two beds, two baths, private patio with a bar, kitchen and dining room with the best porch. Ceiling fans, swing, and rocking chairs (rumored to once have been frequented by Papa himself back when the cabin was the home of a Key West Judge). Beach towels and kitchen items aplenty, even a poker set and checkerboard for rainy days, not to mention an extensive collection of paperbacks and other poolside reading.
I hope to return with a bigger crew next year (or sooner) and hope the garden remains as lush and private of an oasis as it has always been.
