Key West, a place to see blue green waters and to feel the warmth even in winter.

A stay at Duval House is just one of those experiences that will leave you with that memorable and romantic feeling. As you walk into the back courtyard area, you will think you''ve walked into your own garden with a pool and guest house located in the center. Each room has its own balcony area where you can sit and relax in the wicker chairs. You''ll feel as if you were in your own private oasis with the flowers and greenery surrounding you. A poolside continental breakfast is included in your stay.
If you've read any of Ernest Hemingway's works and like cats, you'd be interested in visiting Hemingway's House. The famed author resided in Key West from 1929-1940 at the time of his second marriage. Today it is now a museum where you can get a guided tour of his home and see approximately 56 cats (direct descendents) roaming freely around his home and garden. Many of them bear the dominant trait of Hemingway's original cats, having 6 toes on each paw. If you're curious about where Hemingway wrote some of his most famous novels, 'A Farewell To Arms' and 'For Whom the Bell Tolls,' visit the museum and take a peek at how this one author spent his days in Key West.
