Recent Key West Area reviews

  • Month long stay with family in ideally located Old-Town Home

    "This was my 4th visit to Key West so I knew what area of town I wanted to stay in for a month long vacation and the Poorhouse Lane property couldn't have been more ideal as far as walkability to all the Old-Town sights. Duval is a short walk, but I did love that it was on a quiet street. The neighbors nearby are charming (especially Joseph who lives across the ally and was always ready with a good recommendation of restaurants for dinner) While there is no parking with the property we never had a problem finding on-street parking about 100 feet from the front door (in front of Jimmy Buffet's house). The house isn't huge (Most Key West homes aren't) but the layout and three bedrooms afforded us enough privacy for us to relax and get some quiet time if we needed it. The property management company that takes care of the house for the owners was very accommodating and tried to rectify an problems that we had during our stay. The gas grill stopped working, and Kevin the property manager arrived with a new one within two hours. I had realistic expectations this is a home and not a hotel. So there isn't daily housekeeping, and not everything is 100% pristine but I was found the house to be warm and welcoming and felt comfortable there. My only complaint was that the pool heater was broken for 3 of the 4 weeks we were there. The pool water wasn't freezing but a little to chilly for a wimp like me. I would certainly recommend this property to friends and would consider staying there again if we were lucky enough to go on another month long vacation. With rental rates for Key West being pretty high I found the rent to be far, and I appreciated that I was able to bring my dogs for an nominal fee. Thanks Soren and Irene for a great stay!"

  • Family time

    "Overall it was a perfect vacation for us. Two families got on like one. Unique environment, close quarters, and no problems! It's far enough away from the noise and trapping of KW but close enough to enjoy it when we wanted. We shared cooking duties , one cook at a time, because the galley is small but that brought out the best in each of us. We had no plans for the entire week except for the day sail with the Captain which was lots of fun. We woke up everyday and decided what we would do... a perfect week!"

  • Perfect house and perfect location in Key West!

    "This house is just GREAT. We were 3 young people from France (Paris) , 1 couple and a friend and we absolutely loved our stay at Stefanie's home. The location is great, in the middle of the town, near Duval St. Near all restaurants, bars etc... What we preferred was the pool, very large for Key West, we stayed a LOT of time near/in the pool. The atmosphere of this home is great, with lush vegetation all around, we felt very relaxed during our stay. The home itself is very comfortable, kitchen is huge, and the rooms are spacious. Communication with Stefanie was great before and during our stay. I would highly recommend this house and we will be back for sure!"

There's something to please everyone here in Key West whether you like to spend your vacation days exploring and having adventures or you prefer to lounge about letting your mind and body relax. Either way, you're sure to have a wonderful time here while you soak up the sun.

Things to Do in Key West

- Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum: Lovers of literature and Hemingway fans must put a visit to the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum on their list of things to do in Key West. The home served as Hemingway's residence during the 1930s and was the first on the island to have indoor plumbing. Notable features included a built-in fireplace and a swimming pool. Surrounding the home are the gardens, which are stunning in their own right. Tropical plants, lush greenery and colorful florals are lovely to see. One of the most unique and fun features - especially for animal lovers - are the 40 to 50 cats that live here, about half of which are polydactyl (six-toed). Hemingway was given a polydactyl cat by a ship captain and some of the current cats are descendants of that original feline, Snowball.

- Dry Tortugas National Park: Spend some time exploring nature through the almost 70 miles of Dry Tortugas National Park that's mainly open water surrounding seven small islands. Here you'll find sparkling blue waters, Fort Jefferson, amazing coral reefs and a collection of birds flying overhead. Whether you're looking to spend some time bird watching, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, fishing or a little bit of everything, this national park is one of the best places in Key West to do so. Dry Tortugas got its name from the plethora of turtles found in the area, so keep an eye out for loggerhead, hawksbill, green and leatherback turtles in the waters.

- Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory: Enjoy the magic and wonder of colorful creatures and beautiful flora and fauna at the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. You'll find an expansive collection of flowering plants, birds, waterfalls, trees and hundreds of stunning butterflies. There are 50 to 60 different species here, as well as more than 20 exotic birds. It's a lovely place to slow down and let stress melt away, and kids will have a great time chasing the butterflies and marveling at their patterns.

- Saint Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum: Ahoy, mateys! Take a break from scouring the seven seas and step back in time to find out if the pirate life is for you at the Saint Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum. Here you can peruse more than 40 different exhibits featuring the biggest and most authentic collection of pirate artifacts, including Blackbeard's original blunderbuss, gold pieces from his warship - Queen Anne's Revenge, one of three remaining authentic Jolly Roger flags, and Thomas Tew's original treasure chest. There are even hands-on opportunities to see what it's like to fit the wind as you steer the ship and find out what a real cannon feels like.

Dining in Key West

- Blue Heaven Restaurant: For a casual Key West dining experience head to Blue Heaven Restaurant where you can dine indoors or out, watch live entertainment and sample Caribbean (or vegetarian) cuisine. In keeping with the animal theme, cats and chickens roam the premises and add extra fun to your meal. The restaurant is one of the most popular in Key West and favorite dishes include blueberry pancakes, carrot and curry soup, scallops provencale and miso-marinated eggplant salad. Be sure to save room for some of the island's best key lime pie!

- Sloppy Joes: Dining at Sloppy Joes is a Key West tradition. Since 1933, this has been the place to find a welcoming, hospitable staff and a great place to enjoy a night out. Sandwiches, wraps, salads and pizza dominate the menu in addition to a great beer, wine and drink menu. Starting at noon, live entertainment kicks off and continues through the wee hours of the morning, making for a thrilling place to spend time and let your hair down. Sip cocktails while you tap your toes along to the music, or dine on a delicious meal while you enjoy your travel companions' company in this cool setting.
