After lots of research for a 4 night stay in Key West, we settled on Papas Hideaway. The name is perfect as it is at the end of a dead end street . Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Duval Street, but a nice walk to get there for the evening. Very close to the Southern Most... More

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... More

Unit #1is nice and large There is also a large, private porch. I also like the ample shelf/storage space in the hallway leading to the bathroom. Andrea and Fred are eager to make sure you have everything you need for a great vacation. We always appreciate their willingness to go above and beyond to accommodate their guests.

The place is a really neat small guest house to stay at. We stayed in Studio 4 which had its own patio, and kitchen area. The pool is open 24 hours. Andrea and Fred the owners are really nice as well. Overall a great time.

We spent two nights here in mid December and were so glad we did. The place is charming and quiet. We never started our car once we arrived (lots of close free parking and safe well lighted at night). The pool was close clean warm and very inviting we ate outside every morning and the breakfast is very adequate indeed.... More
