Recent Key West Area reviews

  • Quiet relaxing stay

    "Susan's condo is perfect for a couple. Close to all the restaurants and activities but tucked in an upscale residential area. Key West has a lot to offer in terms of sun and fun but the drunks and smokers always seem to be a part of everything. It's a nice place to visit but.... Regardless Susan does everything she can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible"

  • PERFECT!

    "This property was perfectly suited for our vacation. The condo is in a great location, peaceful, clean, and well maintained. Literally a 10 minute or less walk to just about everything important. All the amenities you need are provided -- plenty of items to use in the kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer, a grill. The spacious back deck with full ocean view is an awesome place to catch the sunset! Great pool area. We definitely recommend this property to those looking for a serene vacation property."

  • Great Place!

    "Perfect for a family getaway. I traveled with my husband, 2 children, my sister and my father. It was very spacious and the condo was well appointed. There were beach chairs, towels and sand toys. The fact that it was oceanfront is a huge bonus. The pool area is absolutely beautiful. Very tropical and well maintained. The pool overlooked the water which was like paradise. The beach for swimming is a short walk from the condo. Smathers beach is great for kids. You can rent chairs, umbrellas, kayaks and paddle boards. There was plenty of information in the condo for other activities. We chose a 1/2 day excursion for kayaking and snorkeling. The locals told us to use Danger Charter for this activity and we were really pleased. It was a 65 foot catamaran, that took us to a mangrove island. It was very informative and very reasonable. Overall, I would recommend the condo for a large group. Everything was well explained and the condo was very accommodating. You won't be disappointed!"

  • Perfect

    "My husband and I had stayed at Villa Al Mar a previous year for an anniversary - so when he had proposed to me and we started thinking of venues for our nuptials, there was no better place than here for our Key West wedding. The house was able to accomodate both my family and his - which was a great way for everyone to get to know each other! We held the Rehearsal Dinner (with private chef), Ceremony, and Reception all on the property. We even had a Pool Party for all of our close friends and family the day prior to the wedding. The Ceremony was held at "the point" overlooking the water, which is ideal for a wedding. We had close friends and family sitting with most standing and even had guests upstairs on the balcony looking down. Once ceremony ended, we moved everyone over to the pool area for Cocktail Hour, and then to the Reception area in the sand lot where we had lights strung, a live band, and tables for seating. Shoes were kicked off at the reception and dancing took place in the sand! As for the house itself, amazing! Luxury at it's best, in one of the most affluential neighborhoods. There is an in-law suite that was perfect for my sister and her children. The master suite has an enormous bathroom and balcony. Many bathrooms so you don't have too much sharing, and plenty of seating throughout living room and kitchen. The property is very private and water surrounding the majority of it! A big thanks to the owners of Villa Al Mar for a beautiful week!"

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.
