Recent Key West reviews
"The listing for this Key West home was detailed and accurate. The amenities are better than listed on the screen. The home is fabulous. It is very clean and neat and well appointed. The homeowner had every detail covered, from having different types of glasses for different beverages to towels for the shower and towels for the pool. For those who want to stay connected to the outside world, the home has a nice desk area with wireless internet and a wireless printer. The home has been completely renovated and the kitchen is modern as well as all the bathrooms. Yet it is full of Key West charm including Dade Pine on the walls. The home is in Old Town but at a quiet end. It is a one mile bike ride to Duval Street where there is nightlife, bars and restaurants. We mostly rode bikes and left the car at the house. The house is also very convenient to New Town where there is more conventional shopping like Publix and Walgreens. It is about a 3 minute drive to those stores. Key West is magical. And this home made it so comfortable - we felt like we really lived there."Guest: Stephanie S. Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: January 7, 2015View listing
"There were 6 of us on this lobster hunting week. The accomodations were just as described, if not nicer. This property was close to Key West and shopping without being in the middle of it all. Very quiet and serene place. On the one day we didn't take out boat out we fished off the dock and there were all kinds of fish there. After catching a bait fish we cast our line out towards the channel and caught a bonnet head shark. He was definitely fun to catch and I was relieved when I didn't have to bring him on the dock to remove the hook! We will definitely be back next year, only a bit earlier."Guest: Steve R.

"We thoroughly enjoyed out stay! The condo is beautiful and very well maintained. The 2 king sized beds were a huge plus! Also, the pool with a gorgeous view made our great afternoon relaxing very enjoyable. The location is perfect. We were able to walk to most of the places we want to visit. We would love to stay here again. Thank you Darla for helping us have an amazing trip!"Guest: Melanae A. Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 4, 2014View listing
"This was my 3rd attempt at visiting Key West. We finally had success. Last time is was there we rented on a key close to Key West. The day after we arrived my mother fell and broke her pelvis, we spent the 2 weeks we were there visiting her at the Key West Hospital. I do not recommend it. This time we stayed for a month. I loss my Iphone, but some nice person turned it into the sheriff's department, so i got it back. We really enjoyed out stay on Pourhouse Lane. it was an excursion to find it, but we finally got there. the rental company was very helpful, because we had a few electrical problems. Kevin was there immediately every time we called and repairs were made quickly. this is a very nice cottage, close to Duval Street and not a tough walk to the beach or marina (we both are senior citizens). We ate out about 3 times a week and most restaurants were fantastic. I recommend the 6 Toed Cat for Key Lime Pie and Lobster Benedict. Other restaurants for dinner: Cafe Marquesa, Nine One Five, Martin's, Cafe Sole, and Seven Fishes (which is just down the street a short walk). This property was lovely. We spent our afternoons in the backyard by and in the pool. Parking could have been a problem, but if you found a spot and did not move your car on the week-end it was no problem.We went to the Publx's grocery store on Wednesday for Thursday with the car and walked every where else. I brought my sweet little kitty with me and other then getting use to the airplanes that flew in and out directly over head(she's a country cat) she did great. We would really consider coming back to Pourhouse Lane if we visit Key West again. Thanks Soren and Irene"Guest: McWhorter Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: January 12, 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.
