"We stayed in September and there were 4 of us. The house is split into 2 but all on the same ground with shared garden/pool area. The outdoor shower was excellent! Private and under palm trees and amazing at night! The pool was small but very deep at one end which was nice. The pool area was nice and we hung out there a lot just on the table, chairs and loungers. Location was perfect! We walked up and down duval street and other restaurant areas. Could walk to the beach but we hired bikes from eaton bikes (1 block away) and it was a nice easy 15 minute bike ride (max) to fort zach beach. Parking was easy for us - right outside the property. The lizards are cool; they are very small and they just dart away so you'll never get near them. We did see one gecko at night for about an hour but that was it. The amenities in the house were excellent; they had beach pass all ready setup and thought of everything you might need; umbrellas, cups etc....even a grill outside. the lights were really nice outside. I would thoroughly recommend this place! I would actually love to back but with a few more people as this would comfortably sleep a lot more than 4 (think up to 8 easily)."Guest: dazalexander Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 19, 2014View listing
"Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Just a few minutes walk from duval, a perfect balance of having all the bars etc nearby, but peaceful enough when sitting out by the pool that you're not disturbed by noise. Poolside itself was great, impressed with the facilities in the rental, and all clean and comfortable. Only thing missing is a steel to sharpen the knives...!"Guest: William Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 16, 2014View listing
"Words can not express how fabulous and wonderful my home away from home was. Staying at Jeff's townhouse was truly staying in Paradise. The house is magnificent. It is beautifully furnished, so welcoming, equipped with every amenity imaginable, down to Q tips if you forgot yours. It is perfect in every way, spacious, immaculate, cozy, elegant, fun and it feels as if you are staying in your own home. We rented a car and it is a short drive to the town etc. The best part is that Jeff provides you with all of the info you need to have an amazing stay. All of his restaurant picks were phenomenal. Do not miss Lattitudes for dinner if you want an unforgettable dining experience. Breakfast at Blue Heaven was outrageous. Key West is a superb destination; laid back, fun, beautiful and lots to do. My husband and I can't wait to go back. Jeff is a perfect concierge in every way. If I could give my stay 10 stars I would. ********** I just did. You will be so happy if you stay at Jeff's. An unforgettable experience. You don't have to look any further for the perfect place to stay. The photos do not even do it justice. You will be so happy, I promise!! Hoping you enjoy your stay as much as we did."Guest: Franny Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 29, 2014View listing
"After having the worst experience with our rental house and mostly the rental agency we worked with on our last stay in Key West we were a little nervous. We checked in and thought we were in paradise! The pictures do not do all the justice to this home. Not only was the place spotless and just overall fantastic, we were greeted by the property manager who was so pleasant and helpful in so many ways. We were 3 couples and had more than enough room and location was by far a plus here. Already planning our next trip and will no doubt stay here again. A truly "must rent" in Key West!"Guest: LKG Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 28, 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.
