While the Artist Cottage was not available, the owner had another Shipyard condo that was perfect for us. The property is nicely maintained, the pool clean and warm, and the condo was ideally located near the state park and shopping/restaurants on Duval Street. We felt safe and welcomed. Communication with the owner and the rental group was top notch. This was our first experience ever renting a condo, and we'd do it again in a heartbeat.

A Taste of Hemingway in Key West

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to Key West several times usually staying in a bed and breakfast. This time we decided to try a condo. We found a condo in the Shipyard Section of The Truman Annex.

The owners have named the condo "The Hemingway Cottage". Several pics of the old man are hung on the walls of the condo.

The condo was perfect for us. There were 3 adults in our group. We enjoyed the beautiful private outside patio. The kitchen area had everything you need.

I am now sold on condo living in Key West. I will return to visit the old man again one day.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone.
