"My husband and I stayed in the the Tree Top Suite. It was an excellent stay the bed is so comfy and the whole living area was great. The shower was so great (good water pressure). Everything was spotless. I cannot say one negative thing about the place and I am picky. It was so quaint and relaxing."Guest: Joyce S.

"My fiancé, my daughter and my best friend visited Key West for a wedding and stayed in this condo. Our friend was staying at the Sheraton and was married on Smathers Beach with a reception dinner at the hotel. This condo was the perfect location for this event. We were in walking distance to their hotel and occasionally utilized the hotels shuttle bus for town visits with them. We also had a rental car and never had a problem parking in town and cabs were always available. The condo is very comfortable and worked out perfect for our needs. We stayed for a week and visited the beach most days. Lounge chair rental at beach is available and they gave us a discount each day since they noticed we were on beach everyday. There were staples available in kitchen which was very helpful. We left our contributions as well. We really enjoyed our visit and look forward to returning!"Guest: Sharon Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 29, 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
"We had our first vacation in Keywest with little knowledge of the area. This unit was perfect. The kids shared the twin room and we had the other. It was clean and comfortably decorated and had everything we needed: linens, dishes, cookware and a great location! We brought our bikes and other than food shopping biked everywhere. 5 minutes to Zachary Taylor State Park, 10 to the movie theater and depending the area you want, 5-10 minutes to Duval St. If you walk, double those times but the sidewalks are great. The unit also had pool access. All in all a great rental and we would not hesitate to book it again!"Guest: Sanville Family Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 30, 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.
