"The condo was clean, neat, perfect for us! This was a girl trip with 3 of us. Spent a lot of time on the front porch which was cool and comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked, great clean linens, lots of towels, no complaints at all! You won't regret it. We have a rule that we can't go back to a place we've been on our annual trips but this is one we are thinking of going back too! I miss it already! Close to everything, parking right in front of unit. Could walk, bike or drive everywhere. Parking in town was difficult but we managed. We loved this trip and the accommodations made it even more enjoyable. Tracy was wonderful!! Wish we had more time!"Guest: Robyn G. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 2, 2014View listing
"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
"I normally do not write reviews on any site. After reading the one partially negative review, I felt this was important. We travel frequently and always rent houses from vrbo that are pet friendly and include amenities that we enjoy. We have rented this property every year for many years. I can not imagine renting another place in Key West or trying to stay in a hotel or guest house. Everything thing we could need or want in any rental is included. I am also selfish in the fact that this place is so unique in what it offers, I want it to be kept our secret, but the flip side is I want Sullins to make money year round:-) I am guessing based on the previous review, the owner, Sullins, took this all to heart. When we arrived this year, he had replaced all the appliances and made other improvements that I appreciate as a renter, but would have never stopped renting the place without. There are so many great restaurants within walking distance that we sometimes eat at 2 or more different restaurants every day without repetition. We have a parking space which is unheard of in Key West unless it is on the street and my mini van fits perfectly in the space. There is a spa around the corner we love for massages, and a great off leash dog park, about 1 mile walk from the house. I could continue my list, but I would run out of space. Thanks Sullins!"Guest: Susan Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 16, 2014View listing
"Thank you for sharing your home with us. It was perfect, so cozy, and well equipped. Lacked for nothing. We found the coconuts quit interesting and tasty. Thanks again for sharing your piece of paradise. Will definitely consider returning in the future. Roll Tide! Sent from my iPhone"Guest: deborah h.

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.
