About the Property

Featured in Island Jane Magazine!-Family BEACH pass-Driveway-Laundry-Cable-WIFI

As seen in the March 2015 issue of Island Jane Magazine, this Hemingway inspired Villa sits on the Old Samaritan Hall site where they held lots of weddings! Such a good vibe! ( James Brown played here!!) Never before offered as a vacation rental! This unique home w/ 10 ft ceilings offers lush private gardens on double lot, & plenty of off street parking. Hemingway's house, Lighthouse, mm0, Southernmost Pt, & Mallory Sq are all located right here! Duval is one block, Ft Zach beach is 2 blks- family pass for 8 included. It is a monthly rental since we do not have a transient license to rent it out for less than 30 days. ( 29 nights except Feb) You can go in on the house with friends and family for the entire month and share the house! Please inquire if you have any questions. Thanks for considering staying at the Little Hemingway House! We look forward to accommodating you!

Car: Not Necessary

Everyone knows where to find Hemingway's house, and you won't want to miss it, along with many other famous KW attractions. However, you might also want to venture the road less traveled and go check out some of the best kept secret spots, such as the unmarked cottage of Tennessee Williams located at 1431 Duncan St.

There are great views of the island from the top of the lighthouse. ( located on our street) However, little known to most, is the best place to check out all of Key West after nightfall. From the top of this location, located on the corner of Caroline and Grinnell St, you can look down and see several historical sights in all their glory without all the hustle and bustle of the lighthouse.

Children and adults both love Nancy Forrester's Secret Garden with the tremendous collection of parrots, macaws and cockatoos, among lush fruit trees and orchids.

One of our best recommendations is Ft Zachory, the locals favorite beach. ( which is why we supply you with a pass for up to 8 people to get in whenever you want- go for the beach, or go grill out and enjoy the sunset, etc.) Close to Ft Zach is also the community pool overlooking the ocean! Unbelievably, not a lot of people know it's there, and it's free! It's huge and I've never seen it crowded. Of course you can always go to Mallory Sq where every night 2 hrs before sunset they start the celebration with st performers, artists, and exhibitors...everyone enjoying a good time on island time!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: My husband and I purchased the Little Hemingway House in Jan 2015. We knew that it was something so special that we could not keep it all to ourselves. We love sharing this beautiful and magical villa with our guests. ( it's often mistaken for Hemingway's house by tourists passing by- just tell them his house is up the street another block and a half) We hope you will come and experience Key West like a local and love it as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Downtown, Key West, FL, USA:
The villa really does speak for itself, don't you think? :-) & There is no better location on the island than this one! Ft Zach Beach ( house includes pass up to 8), and a huge community pool overlooking the ocean, both are only blocks away!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The front porch is a favorite for us. From enjoying our morning coffee, afternoon happy hour, and the occasional lunch or dinner enjoyed overlooking the gardens, this is our happy place! Also private enough that we can't help but use it as our dance floor at times too :-)
