We spent a short vacation here and wished we had stayed a couple more days. The house is beautiful and although a little small, was intimate and tastefully decorated. It was like staying in a private home that was exceptionally clean! The tropical garden is very peaceful and away from the noise of the street. Knowles House is away from...

Ditto all the comments below. Christiana is fabulous! Get rooms in the back, because there is a lot of noise on Eaton St. Also, like everywhere in the Keys, beware the biting bugs. They have a great backyard for hanging out, but the fans are not strong enough to keep the bugs at bay. Everything else is as good as...

If you look up “hospitality” in the dictionary, you will see a picture of the Knowles House. Christina was just so nice and accommodating we felt like we had known her for years. One cannot want for anything at this historic little gem. We came by the Key West Ferry and it was just a couple blocks away from the...

Great atmosphere, especially the shaded courtyard area. We loved the pool at the end of the day. Our hostess, Christina, was a great help - everything she recommended turned out to be spot on! I'm trying to think of anyhting that could have been better, and we've given up. We're B&B people, and this one is a keeper -- we'll...

My wife Carol and I just got back from a 4 night stay at the Knowles House for Memorial Day Weekend. Let me begin this review by stating that this was my wife’s first time in Key West, and my first return trip since 2003. That being said, we spent minimal time in the house and most of the time...

My friend and I spent a fabulous weekend at Knowles House. The B&B is only a block from the ferry so very easy to drop bags immediately upon arrival and leave bags on last day. The owners and the manager Christina were wonderful hosts attentive to our every need- so much so that on our last day we shopped and...

Key West offers a crazy kind of fun. But it's also good to escape that scene by walking a few short blocks from the raucousness of Duval Street to the cool serenity of Knowles House. From the moment we pulled up, the atmosphere was welcoming, friendly and helpful. We stayed in the comfortable Italian Room with its huge bathroom and...

I must say that Les, Paul, Christina and Danny were the most wonderful hosts anyone could ask for. They even helped a friend, who came down to Key West on short notice, find a place to stay on Saturday evening because they were already booked. They provided us with a very nice breakfast, changing it up slightly everyday. We stayed...

Pros: The owners and manager are very nice people and super helpful near the waterfront and old town, very walkable location small but clean and well attended to rooms Cons: Noise! this is a big one and nothing the owners can do anything about. Eaton Street is very noisy - motorcycles, trucks, sirens, garbage trucks. This was our first visit...
