This unique, custom-built, Key West-style duplex home with one four-bedroom and one two-bedroom unit sits directly on the Beach. Built in 2005, both units constructed with quality and perfection are now available.
The four bedroom portion of the home (unit B) is professionally decorated with an upscale beach theme. This four bedroom, Key West-style unit is brand new and offers an extra living area for family fun such as playing games or cards. This extra living room leads to a large deck with panoramic views of the beach. There are two bedrooms in this home with bay windows that offer the panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico while lying in your bed. The private elevator will take you to both living levels and to the beach level where there is yet another deck with hot tub for relaxing in while watching the beautiful sunsets the West Coast has to offer.
The Master bedrooms are directly on the Gulf with bay windows offering panoramic views of the beach as you lie in bed. French doors in the living room lead you to your private balcony where you can view dolphins swimming by and enjoy beautiful sunsets. Luxury custom bathrooms with imported Italian tile, jacuzzi tub, showers and bidet simply add to all of the luxuries this beach home offers. Every window in the home looks out on the Gulf of Mexico and its soft white sand. Take the private elevator and or walk down a few steps to a large beach level deck with hot tub, surrounded by beautiful sea oats and Gulf breezes. Then step onto the sand and into the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
This is a wonderful home for a vacation. We rented Unit A & B, which was perfect for our family. Our Senior folks stayed in Unit A, the bottom level to enjoy the peace and quite from the granchildren when needed. My wife & I and 4 kids stayed in Unit B, the upper level with the 4 bedrooms. Everything was perfect. We had our family all together in the same place for the first time. This 3 level duplix is beautiful, well decorated and maintained, stocked with all our needs. We were right on the beach, had nice walks and gorgeous sunsets.
Stores and resturants were with in short distance. We could not have asked for anything more! Thanks Daudelin for helpng to bring us all together!
I just returned from a long weekend vacation at this fantastic property and my friends and I are already discussing when we'll return. Hemingway House is on a pristine beach with beautiful ocean views. The house is a block off of a main road but we never heard any traffic. Four of us stayed in this four bedroom house and everyone felt the house was set up well for our needs. The kitchen is small but we were on vacation and were not cooking so it wasn't a problem. The bedrooms are all large and the beds are pretty comfortable. Pillows were a problem for all of us but we all admit that we have high standards for pillows. Decor throughout home was comfortable, "beachy", and functional. The outdoor furniture was great and although there is a hot tub, we did not use it. Best things about this house: location, adequate indoor space, clean, w/d on site, adequate towels for our needs (often not the case in other rentals). Also, the owner/unit manager called to ensure everything was okay - we really appreciated the call and her concern for our comfort. Drawbacks: pillows had seen better days (but we all admit, we are pillow snobs). Our group's goal for our vacation was relaxation and beach time - Hemingway was the perfect house for this. Good restaurants and bars nearby and a lot of space indoors and out to spread out. I look forward to staying at Hemingway again.
This is our second time staying at this lovely property, directly on the beach. The house is clean and pretty and the beach is pristine. The elevator is a nice addition for bringing up luggage and groceries. We have a small dog that we bring with us on vacation, and it's difficult to find a really nice, clean property that allows dogs to stay, so this was a plus for us. The place has two stories with a small kitchen and family room upstairs (in addition to the extra bedrooms and baths) so it's a nice place for a larger family (or in our case, for visits from friends and family in town.) Really the only thing I would improve about the place is the kitchen utensils and cookware. The non-stick pans are worn and unusable. Other than that, we had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay again!
We rented both units in the house for spring break. The listing was accurate and property was clean. The location is good--a bit off of busy Gulf Blvd, but close enough to get to everything easily. We walked to SeaBreeze for dinner one night. It was an easy walk south down the beach to the Redington Pier. We drove to Clearwater Beach for the sunset celebration at Pier 60. It's about a 20-25 minute drive. Since it was chilly we really enjoyed the hot tub. There were pool toys provided and a charcoal grill. Each level had a deck where we could read a book or just relax. There were plenty of beach chairs and beach toys for the kids.
It had an elevator that we only used for luggage and groceries. The beds were a bit squeaky, but functional. The decor for the two upper floors was adequate but not luxurious. There was a nice soaking tub in second level. The top level had an interesting shower set up with the shower stall surrounded by interior windows with blinds. The kids stayed up there and didn't seem to mind. The table seated 6 so some of us ate in the living room. The top deck was beautiful with great views and wind block. It could use a staining/sanding to prevent slivers.
We used the washing machine and dryer a lot. It was handy to have (could use a small laundry basket).
We have stayed in the area for the past 20 years and love the area. I have always admired the Hemmingway and decided to look into my family staying there. I am so glad we did. We had unit B and it was just wonderful. The rooms are spacious and look just like the pictures on website. The unit was very clean and very comfortable. There is so much to do in this area that we were never looking for something to do. It was great to sit out on the deck each night and watch the beautiful sunset and feel the gulf breezes. It was very private and we loved our stay. I also must mention that we got a call from an employee of the owner and she was very nice. She asked if we had any problems and if she could help in any way. Like I said we have stayed in the area for 20 years and have never had a courtesy call before from any other establishment. I recommend Hemmingway House to anyone who would like a quiet private and beautiful getaway or family vacation.
