"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.

"Our stay at Tropical Dreaming was the perfect way for our family of four to enjoy the Christmas Holiday week. The property provided great comfort for us in a great location on the island. We walked everywhere.....to Duval to shop.....to the port to watch the sunset.....to the beaches for relaxation in the sun. The outside area was just right. We could sit on the deck to eat every meal.....jump in the pool to cool down after a morning run.......sit in the sun to enjoy the December warmth. The only unfortunate part was that the sun was not as high in the sky during the winter trip that only part of the back was constantly in the sun. We would definitely stay again at Tropical Dreaming on a future trip the Keys."Guest: Fourmartins Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: January 19, 2015View listing
"This property was perfectly suited for our vacation. The condo is in a great location, peaceful, clean, and well maintained. Literally a 10 minute or less walk to just about everything important. All the amenities you need are provided -- plenty of items to use in the kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer, a grill. The spacious back deck with full ocean view is an awesome place to catch the sunset! Great pool area. We definitely recommend this property to those looking for a serene vacation property."Guest: Hoosier Family Date of Stay: January 2015 Review Submitted: January 22, 2015View listing
"We chose to spend our Honeymoon at Hidden Beach. The location and privacy were perfect for what we were hoping to enjoy during our stay. The rental is close enough to various restaurants and attractions but definitely on the "quieter side" of the Key. We rented a car for the first two days to shop for essentials and also allow for a better feel of the area. We then rented bicycles and a scooter but we also did plenty of walking. The rental is nice to escape and relax when we were not busy enjoying all the Key West has to offer. We can't wait for our next trip to Key West and Hidden Beach!"Guest: The Newlyweds Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: January 14, 2015View 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.
