"My husband & I have been coming to Key West for a month each winter (since retirement) from the cold North. We've been pretty happy with all our rentals, all through VRBO. But this rental was incredible. The photos are accurate, the space is large, clean, easy to care for, & very comfortable, very beautiful. Took our meals outside by the light of the pool. Loved the outside shower & used it consistently except for our last day --- way too early & still dark outside! We bought 2 used bikes which we were able to sell back at the end of the month & this made grocery shopping & going to the beaches much more do-able. Also used the Key West bus -- who knew they had one--Bus stop is very close & bus was always on time. would often walk one way & use the bus one way. Then there's squeaky the cat who comes for food, water, & a little attention daily. Added to the "at home" feeling. Because we'd been to KW a few times, we didn't have many questions for Mardee or Bruce, but it was very re-assuring to know how available they were. Mardee was wonderful on our arrival & checked in from time to time to insure we were doing okay. And the next doo r neighbor, Rich, was just great - If you choose this rental, you'll love it."Guest: D Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 12, 2014View listing

"We came late on Thursday and Key West Hideways had keys and welcome package ready for us at their office drop box. We booked with Surrey and she was very pleasant, helpful and accommodating. The owner of Key West Hideways, Mr. Kevin came by next morning to check on us was also very helpful and accommodating. It is good to have that level of service and people who know what they do - you will be in good hands with them. Also, we booked the home 3-4 hrs prior to arrival - last minute deal and they allowed us 2 day stay instead of 3 minimum or 7 minimum as most places require - I am definitely going to use them always and recommend to family and friends. Six of us stayed including young baby and we were very comfortable. Home is amazing, loaded with all latest gadgets, free WI-FI, fully equipped, plenty of towels, washer, dryer, nice kitchen - because our girls like to cook and were impressed. Barbecue Grill in the back is also a bonus and works well. Private Pool Area is like a tropical garden with shade from the sun, lounge chairs - perfect for entertaining or chilling - I took a deep in the morning and they even had a floating mattress which is perfect to lay on in the middle of the pool. Size of the pool could be bigger, but still enough for 3 people to hang in. Duvall is 4 blocks away - so if you are looking for proximity and a quiet retreat from all the noise of Duvall - this place works very well. Parking was available right in front of the home. We had 2 vehicles and no problem parking. It felt good not to deal with parking on Duvall ST and be able to walk there."Guest: Dmitry Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 24, 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
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.
