  • Turning 50 getaway

    "We rented this condo for a getaway vacation with another couple and it was just excellent for 2 couples. The condo was very clean and nicely stocked with just about everything you would need to get away. Water views over the harbor area where the boats come in and out. Nicole was super to work with and a very gracious host. Nice location within walking distance to all the Duval St. action, about 8-10 blocks to get to the heart of the action there. The seafood festival was going on right across the street so we were able to enjoy that fun event. We didn't use the pool as the temps were unseasonably cool and we were busy doing other things. Nice place for a reasonably priced getaway in a wonderful location! Thanks Nicole for everything - we will be back with the kids for another stay hopefully soon."

  • Love Key West!

    "My husband and I rented this property in May, 2014. The property is absolutely beautiful and we loved our stay. The house is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The staircase might be a concern for anyone with small or young children as it is unusually designed and would be a hazard to children or toddlers. The two upstairs bedrooms each have a queen size bed and private bath. Washer and dryer came in very handy for light packing. Although we ate dinner out most nights, We ordered groceries from Fausto's Food store on Key West and they delivered them to us for $5.00!!! What a bargain and their specialty items (shrimp salad and specialty cheeses) were incredible. The resident's beach is secluded and very nice. The house manager, Bob, was extremely welcoming and helpful. The gardens and flowers were amazing and beautifully tropical. This property is lovely and we will definitely return!"

  • Wonderful Memories Created

    "I was hesitant to visit KW with little children. It was our first flight with the kids and the only regret was we did not ride our bikes more. This cottage is fully equipped with everyting you need while visiting KW. Centrally and conviently located to everything you need to do but still yet very quiet and secluded for relaxation. Southard Comfort is very well maintained and decorated as described and we are counting the days until we are able to return. We made wonderful memories there and took home the vibe we felt while living in this house. Our children loved being so close to areas we rode our bikes everywhere and we loved our location. The pool and deck transforms you a feeling of paradise. Thank you again for helping us create life long memories of the butterfly museum, aquarium, riding bikes to the library and sunset celebration.. We loved the cuban sandwhiches from down the street at Five Brothers... until we can visit again."

  • SUPER CONDO RIGHT ON THE BEACH!

    "Very pleased with our stay here! What an awesome view from the balcony! The rooms in the condo are all very clean and comfortable. The building, pool, and surrounding area are also in great condition, the neighbors are very friendly – it’s a very relaxed vibe. Also, the unit owner is very responsive. Obviously the beach is only steps away, so that’s convenient. Getting to Duval area is also quick and easy - if you drive you can hunt down some free spots or find parking lots for only $10 all day. We absolutely loved it here.. my husband and I are retired, and our daughter and niece came out to visit us, they loved it too. We’ll all be back next year!"

If some of your favorite things include warm, sunny days, glorious beaches, laid-back atmospheres, literary figures and history, then Key West is the ideal vacation spot for you.

Once you arrive in this Florida city, your tension will instantly melt away as you spend afternoons saltwater or deep sea fishing, sampling the local cuisine at the various restaurants, hiking through the backcountry or exploring the underwater world of coral reefs as you dive and snorkel.

Key West is also home a wonderful literary history where you can learn about and experience a variety of writers, playwrights and poets including, most famously, Ernest Hemingway. However, Tennessee Williams, Robert Frost, Shel Silverstein and Wallace Stevens also made their mark on this Florida hub.

There's something to please everyone here in Key West whether you like to spend your vacation days exploring and having adventures or you prefer to lounge about letting your mind and body relax. Either way, you're sure to have a wonderful time here while you soak up the sun.

Things to Do in Key West

- Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum: Lovers of literature and Hemingway fans must put a visit to the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum on their list of things to do in Key West. The home served as Hemingway's residence during the 1930s and was the first on the island to have indoor plumbing. Notable features included a built-in fireplace and a swimming pool. Surrounding the home are the gardens, which are stunning in their own right. Tropical plants, lush greenery and colorful florals are lovely to see. One of the most unique and fun features - especially for animal lovers - are the 40 to 50 cats that live here, about half of which are polydactyl (six-toed). Hemingway was given a polydactyl cat by a ship captain and some of the current cats are descendants of that original feline, Snowball.

- Dry Tortugas National Park: Spend some time exploring nature through the almost 70 miles of Dry Tortugas National Park that's mainly open water surrounding seven small islands. Here you'll find sparkling blue waters, Fort Jefferson, amazing coral reefs and a collection of birds flying overhead. Whether you're looking to spend some time bird watching, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, fishing or a little bit of everything, this national park is one of the best places in Key West to do so. Dry Tortugas got its name from the plethora of turtles found in the area, so keep an eye out for loggerhead, hawksbill, green and leatherback turtles in the waters.

- Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory: Enjoy the magic and wonder of colorful creatures and beautiful flora and fauna at the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. You'll find an expansive collection of flowering plants, birds, waterfalls, trees and hundreds of stunning butterflies. There are 50 to 60 different species here, as well as more than 20 exotic birds. It's a lovely place to slow down and let stress melt away, and kids will have a great time chasing the butterflies and marveling at their patterns.

- Saint Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum: Ahoy, mateys! Take a break from scouring the seven seas and step back in time to find out if the pirate life is for you at the Saint Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum. Here you can peruse more than 40 different exhibits featuring the biggest and most authentic collection of pirate artifacts, including Blackbeard's original blunderbuss, gold pieces from his warship - Queen Anne's Revenge, one of three remaining authentic Jolly Roger flags, and Thomas Tew's original treasure chest. There are even hands-on opportunities to see what it's like to fit the wind as you steer the ship and find out what a real cannon feels like.

Dining in Key West

- Blue Heaven Restaurant: For a casual Key West dining experience head to Blue Heaven Restaurant where you can dine indoors or out, watch live entertainment and sample Caribbean (or vegetarian) cuisine. In keeping with the animal theme, cats and chickens roam the premises and add extra fun to your meal. The restaurant is one of the most popular in Key West and favorite dishes include blueberry pancakes, carrot and curry soup, scallops provencale and miso-marinated eggplant salad. Be sure to save room for some of the island's best key lime pie!

- Sloppy Joes: Dining at Sloppy Joes is a Key West tradition. Since 1933, this has been the place to find a welcoming, hospitable staff and a great place to enjoy a night out. Sandwiches, wraps, salads and pizza dominate the menu in addition to a great beer, wine and drink menu. Starting at noon, live entertainment kicks off and continues through the wee hours of the morning, making for a thrilling place to spend time and let your hair down. Sip cocktails while you tap your toes along to the music, or dine on a delicious meal while you enjoy your travel companions' company in this cool setting.
