Recent Key West property reviews
"This home was such a great deal for the price. The home was spacious and had a wonderful private pool that the kids loved and offered plenty of sun for sunbathing. The location was close enough to everything Key West has to offer, yet far enough away to relax and unwind with our family. Neighbors were very friendly and the home was very secure and in a nice neighborhood. The owner and property manager were easy to communicate with and very accommodating. This home offered just about everything we needed and is offered at such an amazing price for lodging in Key West! I highly recommend and hope to be bringing my family back again soon :-)"Guest: Chrissy Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 15, 2014View listing

"We just got back from a vacation in Key West over the New Year's Holiday! We really enjoyed this townhome! It had more amenities than we expected: beach towels, washer/dryer, kitchen fully stocked with appliances, dishes/glasses/silverware, etc., lots of bath towels, pillows, super nice closets with lots of shelving..Loved the electric grill for cooking steaks outside. Best of all, this was a super clean townhome which I really appreciated! Bathroom was spotless! Dale and Joyce thank you! Also, thanks so much for the list of suggestions! We tried quite a few of the eating places, in addition, to finding a few on our own from Trip Advisor. Be sure and eat at Blue Heaven, Paseo's, and Sarabeth's. Even the Sunset Pier on Mallory Square had good drinks and food!"Guest: DLS Date of Stay: December 2012 Review Submitted: January 6, 2013View listing
"This is absolutely the best place to stay in KW. The condo was clean and we had everything we needed, The Truman Annex/Shipyard complex was well-maintained and close to all the attractions. The pool was large as some pools in Old Town are small. The owners were a pleasure to work with and were flexible with our dates. I will rent this place again."Guest: J Date of Stay: May 2013 Review Submitted: June 6, 2013View 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.
