Recent Key West Area reviews

  • Sanctuary Indeed

    "My family and I recently spent some time at this Sanctuary house in Key West. This home is located in a quiet, quant, tropical gated community on Stock Island. Even though we were only a few minutes’ drive from everything Key West has to offer, when we returned to this oasis, it felt like we were in our own tropical hideaway. With three bedrooms and two baths upstairs, and one bedroom and half bath downstairs, this home will comfortably sleep six (more if you make use of the couch and futon). We all had our own space when needed, but, as a family, we enjoyed the entertainment spaces like the open living room-dining-kitchen and the private pool deck out back. During our stay we also made use of the two tri-wheeled bicycles provided, and the larger community pool. The location is perfect for those seeking adventure and the home itself is perfect for those seeking refuge. We would highly recommend this Sanctuary house."

  • Love Key West!

    "My husband and I rented this property in May, 2014. The property is absolutely beautiful and we loved our stay. The house is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The staircase might be a concern for anyone with small or young children as it is unusually designed and would be a hazard to children or toddlers. The two upstairs bedrooms each have a queen size bed and private bath. Washer and dryer came in very handy for light packing. Although we ate dinner out most nights, We ordered groceries from Fausto's Food store on Key West and they delivered them to us for $5.00!!! What a bargain and their specialty items (shrimp salad and specialty cheeses) were incredible. The resident's beach is secluded and very nice. The house manager, Bob, was extremely welcoming and helpful. The gardens and flowers were amazing and beautifully tropical. This property is lovely and we will definitely return!"

  • Delightful stay!

    "Perfect place for our inter-generational family group of 5 to spread out & enjoy our time in Key West--very comfortable & beautiful view! Nice to have washer & dryer with soap supplied, snorkle gear, plenty of beach towels, etc. We enjoyed the pool & hot tub, especially the neighborhood water aerobics at 9. Clubhouse has nice lending library. The bus stops outside the gate but we took our car to town & found reasonably priced parking near the charming Duetto's Pizza & Gelato place on Greene St."

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.
