"We had an absolute wonderful time. This was the third time we rented this house for a month's vacation and just like the two previous stays it works out great for us. Even though it's a pretty good hike to the all the Duval spots, we really don't mind the walk and the heat. If you are comfortable riding bikes, that's a good option. The house is far enough from the hustle and bustle, yet on the other hand close enough to everything. We hope to make a fourth stay! Thanks for sharing this extremely comfortable home with us."Guest: Linda & Richard C. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 3, 2014View listing
"My husband and I just returned last night from a 6 week stay in this lovely tropical townhouse at the Key West Golf Club and are already planning next year's return. The place is clean, nicely furnished (just as pictured on this website), close to one of the Club's beautifully maintained and landscaped pool areas, neighbors are friendly and helpful as are the security folks, fine artwork graces the freshly painted walls. This vacation home has lovely, new tile flooring throughout, which along with the wipe-able blinds and quality mattress and pillow encasements in the master bedroom make for an almost dust-mite proof sleeping experience. The surrounding grounds at the Golf Club are lush and tropical, beautifully landscaped and maintained, reminiscent of Old Town Key West but without the noise and craziness. Amazing experience. In all the years we've been renting in Key West to escape the cold northeast winters, this is the first place we've wanted to return to!"Guest: Mary Anne Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: March 16, 2014View listing
"Just returned from a wonderful week in Key West. This condominium unit was exactly as described in the listing. Although there were only two of us, we wanted a two bedroom unit and this one was lovely. We drove to the nearest Publics and stocked up on breakfast items and some snacks and beverages to enjoy on the deck or at the pool. The pool area is wonderful and we spent our morning hours in the pool and relaxing in the sun. We had rented a convertible to drive down from Ft. Lauderdale airport. It took us between 5 and 6 hours to reach Key West, but we stopped for lunch and enjoyed the very scenic drive. Once at the condo, we headed to LA TRATTORIA on Duval Street for dinner, very good meal. We spent most of our afternoons and evenings in that part of town, usually taking a taxi there and back. Due to the traffic and limited parking, the car spent most of the week in the secured garage at the condo. We also used the trolley to venture forth two of the days, but to pick it up we had to walk to another resort that was a little less than a mile away. If you enjoy walking (I do), it was a pretty walk. One short comimg of the trolley is the fact that the last one leaves Duval Street at 5:39 p.m. However, a one day ticket is good for a free second day, and the tour around the island is worth taking. We made the requisite stops at Sloppy Joes for lunch (I went back a second time) and at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville for drinks. We also ventured forth on a sunset cruise on a schooner (absolutely fabulous experience) and spent a couple of afternoons and sunsets at The Pier, a fun restaurant/bar that is literally on a pier. Another favorite stop was the Schooner Wharf Bar. A week is too short a time to visit all of the places friends had recommended, but we made a good start. As an English teacher, I HAD to visit Hemingway's House, a tour that was well worth the time and money. If I go back again, I'd probably fly into Key West airport and take a taxi to Henry's condo. There was really no need to have a car for the entire week. I might rent one for a day or two at the start of the week to pick up groceries and drive back to The Stoned Crab for lunch or dinner, but taking taxis worked fine. There is also a bus stop near the complex which I might check out. I enjoyed staying away from Duval Street and being on the ocean was great!"Guest: Blithe R.

"Celebrating our 30th anniversary, we wanted a quiet, private and romantic getaway. This studio was perfect. Enjoyed our coffee every morning with a beautiful view of the beach and palm trees. Close enough to the action that everything was easy to get to. Holly had great suggestions about where (and where not) to eat and things to do. Felt kind of special driving down our private sandy lane and so glad not to have to hassle with on-street parking. Suite had every kitchen convenience we could have wanted. Try the upstairs 'tapas' next door at Louie's Backyard.Be sure to get there right at 5:00 and you will be rewarded with a charming table for two in a window/balcony overlooking the water. Magical."Guest: Happy Traveler Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: March 11, 2014View listing
Key West Travel Tips
Key West is a veritable hot spot for literary icons, both today and in the past. This small Florida island was loved by the likes of playwright Tennessee Williams, and poets Robert Frost, Wallace Stevens and Shel Silverstein.
Today, beloved children’s author Judy Blume keeps a home here, and every January for more than 30 years, writers and readers from around the country gather at the high-profile Key West Literary Seminar - spread over two weekends - for lectures, readings, discussions, workshops and parties. The event has featured the likes of Joyce Carol Oates, Junot Diaz and Gore Vidal.
Key West should be high on the list of travel locations for any literary lover and creative soul because of its deep history in extraordinary American literature. Ernest Hemingway even kept a fabulous estate in Key West that today has been converted into a museum and bookstore. Visit the beautiful and historic Ernest Hemingway Home and then check out some of the writer's rumored favorite spots.
Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum
Hemingway’s stately, olive-shuttered two-story cottage at 907 Whitehead Street in Old Town Key West is no doubt a visitor favorite. If you’re a die-hard Hemingway fan, you’ll have to brave the crowds and come here.
The home was built in 1851 from limestone excavated from the exact land upon which it is built. Hemingway bought and lived in the estate from 1931 until 1940 with his wife and kids before he left for Cuba. This spectacular estate, which includes a rear guesthouse and is surrounded by elegant gardens and rustling palms, is still the largest residential property in Key West.
You might be surprised to see that the beds are made in full linens and the home looks recently lived in - it’s as if the family just stepped out for lunch and will be home shortly. Here are the highlights you should take note of inside and around Hemingway’s marvelous estate:
The Ritzy Pool
A pool this large - or any pool at all - in 1930s Key West was a luxury. To fill it, construction workers had to drill to the salt-water table deep in the ground and install a water pump. Hemingway’s wife - Pauline - had the costly pool built as a surprise for Hemingway while he was in Spain in 1938 working as a correspondent during the Spanish Civil War.
The Happy Cats
Hemingway’s six-toed cats - or polydactyls - are legendary. Recently uncovered letters from Hemingway to a friend explain just how sad he was at the loss of one of his cats - Willie. The Hemingway Home and Museum curators maintain that each of the 40 to 50 cats on the grounds is a direct descendant of Hemingway’s first cat, a white polydactyl named Snowball (Though they don’t all have six toes on each paw, all are said to carry the gene for polydactyly). The cats living here are very friendly and many will actually pose for pictures. They’re all vetted and well-taken care of - not your average strays!
The Lush Gardens
The Hemingway House gardens are stunning, featuring a vibrant array of tropical flowers - shrimp plants, heliconia, bleeding hearts and the funky looking pelican flower - and banana, Barbados cherry, papaya and Spanish lime trees, among many others.
Other Literary Tour Stops
410 Caroline Street is Jessie Porter’s home - a fifth-generation Key Wester - who was good friends with Robert Frost. He spent several winters in the cottage in Porter’s backyard. The site used to be the Heritage House Museum, though it has been closed since 2010. If you want to see things the iconic Frost saw, at least take a stroll past the home!
Green Parrot Bar and Sloppy Joe’s Bar are rumored to be hangouts of Hemingway and his friends like Wallace Stevens.
