Recent Key West reviews
"Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: In a word - 'fantastic'. I really don't think the pictures do this oasis any justice. Very private and very secure and we felt like this inviting home was the perfect vacation spot for our small family reunion. Something for everyone whether you wanted seclusion to read a book, congregate to do a puzzle or have a family dinner by the pool. Probably not walking distance to major attractions on Duval but a short bike ride or car trip puts you right in the middle of multiple museums or activities and was the perfect distance for us (two families of 4 with teens and pre-teens). Property was very clean when we checked in (check in and check out were a breeze) and I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Key West."Guest: John Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: August 12, 2014View listing
"My husband and I had a fabulous stay at Key West Oasis! The house is beautiful in every detail and the pool area is divine! A serene retreat after a busy day seeing the sights and shopping. Kim is great to work with.... totally professional and welcoming. Gary greets you upon arrival and is a super nice guy as well a great resource! We chose this property based on the reviews and let me tell you, they are all true. The only thing you won't like about this place is leaving! We are already looking forward to our next visit!"Guest: Nancy P. Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 15, 2014View listing
"We loved relaxing and fishing right on the canal! We also went charter fishing with the neighbor a block away and that was awesome to be so close! It was a great location to be away from it all, but yet a short drive away from the action of Key West. Geiger Key is a great place and we enjoyed our time there! We used the kayak several times to explore around Geiger Key and that was a lot of fun! The owners were very easy to work with and super helpful! This was not an issue for us, but others may need to know that the rental is on the second story of the property, so if stairs are a problem you might need to look somewhere else."Guest: Kate E.

"What a lovely place!! The neighborhood is very quite but close enough to get into the "Duval Crawl". The place was exceptionally clean, well equipped, and the decor very well appointed. David, the Owner is very friendly and accessible. We had bicycles and went everywhere on them. Make sure you go to the Casa Marina and lay in the hammocks, or the Southernmost Beach and watch the entertainment!! I would reccommend this place and would love to stay again. Wish I was there right now...I LOVE Key West....Thanks David for making your place have such good "karma"."Guest: Denise O. Date of Stay: December 2013 Review Submitted: January 9, 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.
