Why You Can't Pass Up Key West House Rentals

There's a reason why famous people, like Jimmy Buffet, love Key West. The small island that sits on the southern-most part of the United States is probably one of the most relaxing places you can visit. People there are on "island time" and things move at a slower pace. People staying in one of the many Key West house rentals will find all the comforts or home, but none of the obligations. Whether it's a leisurely stroll on the beach next to your Key West beach rental or walking around town, before you know it, you too will have adopted the laid-back island demeanor that the locals already have.

Experience Key West through Hemingway's Eyes

Those staying in one of the many Key West vacation rentals will soon discover why the famed author adored the small island so much. From 1931 until his death, Earnest Hemingway lived in a Spanish Colonial home in Key West with 50 of his feline friends. While living in the home he wrote some of his best work including For Whom the Bell Tolls. Now the house is converted into a museum that's open to the public on a daily basis. In addition, to touring the house and grounds, guests will discover that the ancestors of Hemingway's beloved pets still roam the grounds.

The Key West Shopping Experience

While you'll find items like bathing suits, sandals and sunglasses in the small shops lining Duvall Street, there's one item that you'll find everywhere you go: T-shirts. Regardless of which Key West house rentals you stay in, you'll find some kind of T-shirt shop nearby. Most of the T-shirts have different sayings and make good souvenirs to take home from your vacation. From cigars to souvenirs there are always plenty of places for you to shop near all of the Key West beach rentals.
