  • What a gem this is and Hemingway's story is amazing. The cats are a true treasure and their story equally fascinating. Make sure you have cash to get in, as they don't take anything but for the entrance fees. The gift shop does take credit cards. I recommend taking the tour (free after admission). The true stories and so funny. We spent about 2 hours there.

  • I was really excited to come here during my stay at Key West. Really nice house. And the cats were really cute. It's a bit crowded at times but it didn't detract from the experience. The place is really well maintained and bright. Definitely a must go attraction when visiting Key West.

  • Our tour guide (a slender lady) was wonderful. Sorry I don't remember her name. She was very entertaining and kept the group engaged. She was funny and witty!!

  • I love this place. If you got yourself in Key West, you definitely should go there. Its extremely interesting. Lady who was our guide is friendly and she love her job I should say. Plus there is many cats with interesting background, i will attach picture of their paw. They also will provide you with booklet on many languages, there you will find information that could be interesting about Hemingway and his mansion. You won't regret this interesting experience at Hemingway house.

  • Theirs some interesting memorabilia in the house. The tour content was a bit glib and gossip focused. The descendants of Hemingway's six-toed cat provided a quirky touch. Little insight was given into his work as a writer.
