We are refurbished after hurricane Irma. This stilt home is near Mile Marker 23. It is 20 miles to Key West and about 25 miles from Marathon. We are in the quieter Lower Keys with good local restaurants and bars. We have a marina on the water a few canals away with ice, snacks and very competitively-priced ethanol-free marine gas for easy access on your way offshore. We are located on the ocean side with very quick access to Atlantic Ocean and bayside waters. The home is 1240 sq ft with ceramic tile throughout. The master bedroom has a king size bed and bath. The second bedroom has a queen size bed. The third bedroom has twin Murphy beds. The sleeper sofa that can sleep two more. The laundry room is upstairs. We have an open concept dining room, living room, breakfast bar and kitchen. Uverse TV programming and WiFi are provided. A DVD player and library of over 40 movies is also provided. We also have a large selection of books for the reader. The house has ceiling fans in almost every room. Downstairs, beneath the house, we have a new 297 sq ft storage room, outside shower, gas grill, new bar with 4 stools, table with 6 chairs, porch swing, two kayaks, two bicycles, live bait pen, pinfish trap so you can catch your own bait, bait freezer and second fridge. The 75 ft seawall has mooring whips, a fish cleaning table, dock lights, power and water at the seawall for boat cleaning. There is a rod/reel washing station at the dock with rod/reel racks in the new downstairs storage.

We have plenty of parking for multiple vehicles and boat trailers. The kitchen has utensils, serving ware, stove, oven, microwave and dishwasher.
We've had the pleasure of spending a month at the Hemingway Hideaway home for a couple years now and can't recommend it highly enough. The owner was always gracious and quick to reply to our inquiries and any questions we had before and during our stays. We love everything about the property, from the roomy, comfortable and lovely decorated home upstairs, to the relaxing, open-air patio downstairs. We especially enjoyed the clean canal, where we could keep our boat and have easy ocean access for some awesome fishing, trips to Looe Key for snorkeling, and even for jumping in and cooling off. There's a great fish cleaning table next to the canal and a separate fridge/freezer downstairs to store your bait. The home is fully stocked with everything you need during your stay, plus plenty of extras like DVD movies, books, beach towels and more. We really appreciated having use of the bicycles, kayaks and hammocks. The home is in a great location in the lower keys, close to restaurants, shopping, and famous Key West.
