The house is amazing, the polydactyl cats roaming around are lovely, the furniture, the pool and Ernests writing room are all fantastic but the best bit was the tour. So informative and humourous, we had a great time and one of the best things about coming to Key West.

I love reading Hemingway when I was 'forced' to read in high school. The house is in excellent shape and even though we visited over New Years holiday, the crowd wasn't too bad.
