House was great right off Duvall street. A little hard to find signs where fadded so we could not see the right road Great location close to everything

Hemingway View is just off Duval St. which is perfect for walking or biking anywhere on the island. The back porch is perfect for relaxing, With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, it works very well for 2 to 3 people or couples.

This was a nice place with a great location. It sits right behind Hemingway's writing studio. Close walking to downtown and lot of activities. Need some maintenance however. All in all nice location to stay in very pleasant.

Location is 1/2 block from Duval and about a mile from Mallory Square. If you are picky, this house is not for you. Needs updating and a dishwasher. Beds are comfy with plenty of linens. If you planned on cooking in the house, it would be tough. The hot tub is nice. Even though it is 1/2 block from Duval, it’s pretty quiet. I wouldn’t stay in this house again, due to it’s need for an update, but we had a great vacation in Key West.
Manager response:
Hi, Mark! Thank you for your feedback. Housekeeping will be detailing the floors and walls, and we have added a spatula. We hope to see you again!

If you are looking for a house with lots of room right off Duval, this is for you! Although it was literally steps off Duval - we didn't hear any street noise at all at night!

Have stayed at this location twice now, cannot beat the location right off Duval Street. The house is clean and the beds are comfortable. Quiet location with a very nice back patio to relax. Only issue is the parking. There is one designated spot which is right next to the house. Next to it are two spots for the inn which is next door. We had 7 people so we rented a Suburban to drive down. When we arrived it was physically impossible to maneuver the vehicle into the spot with a vehicle parked right next to the designated parking spot. We were provided no alternative options by Vacasa so we ended up finding alternative parking on our own. Not much can be done to improve this situation unless they take one of the spots from the inn, so just be wary of the parking if you travel down with a large vehicle.

Great Thanksgiving Vacation. The backyard was so nice to hang out in. The furnishings were all in good condition and updated. Great location in proximity to Duval.

Rented the house for a Bachelor Party for eight guys and had plenty of room! Back patio is awesome and chill. I was kinda hesitant about the window units and Florida heat but they kept the house freezing!

This house is perfectly located for your time in Key West. The beds are super comfy, clean and there are plenty of Linens. This is a five star spot based on location, cleanliness and spaciousness.

This house was much nicer than expected. The furnishings were very nice, the location was absolutely perfect (right in the heart of things but off a block for quiet and privacy), and 3 king bedrooms made it just perfect for 3 couples. In many trips to Key West, this was our favorite property to date.
Lyndly O. Jan 2019
This place is right off duval, steps away from the action but tucked away so that it's quiet and you can barely hear the street noise. Really comfortable for a small group. The back patio and grill are a great place for cooking your own dinner. Only negative is that the kitchen lacks even basic condiments like salt, pepper, and olive oil. We bought our own and left it there, so maybe there will still be some for you.
AJ Z. Nov 2018
We rented this house for 5 days, it has all the amenities you need and the location can't be beat. Thanks!
Gary H. Nov 2018
Right off Duval, but with no noise from the crowds. Could use a little updating, especially the exterior, but all in all our stay was wonderful. Only one parking spot and we had 3 couples with 3 cars, but parking was found a couple blocks away on Whitehead. Would not hesitate to stay again sometime.
Billie Y. May 2018
House is old but clean. Floors are not level
Can not unlock back doors to the patio, Have leave open to keep from locking yourself out.

Awesome house
Kelly C. Apr 2018
We were very pleased with the location and the condition of the house. It was off of Duval a little so it was pretty quiet at night when we were at the house.
Daniel S. Feb 2018
Great location, nicely furnished. No central air but window units were adequarte, although noisy. Full kitchen, three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms a plus for groups or families.
Anne M. Jan 2018
We had a great time in this cute, comfortable house! We loved the king beds and the yard and hot tub were so relaxing. The location was perfect and we plan to come back again!
Gary H. Jan 2018
Right on Duval. Nothing else needs to be said.
Chris J. Jan 2018
Hemingways view was prrfect for what we needed. 3 rooms and 2 full baths. Quiet.
Ibrahim F. Nov 2017
The house has a very distinct ambiance of antiquity and history surroundings. If relax is what you want, you came to the right place. If you are looking for a surrounding view, seek another one. But overall, it is a very cozy house. And highly recommend it.
