We truly enjoyed our stay at Papa's Hideaway. It was quiet but still close to the action. The owners are wonderful. Fred sat us down the first day and gave us "the lay of the land" - helpful tips and directions on how to enjoy our stay in Key West even more.

Papa's Hideaway is fantastic if you want to combine the excitement, hustle and bustle of Key West with the perfect spot to escape to tranquil peace and quiet.
