Located in picturesque Truman Annex in fabulous, sunny Key West, Alegre is close to all the fun and activities yet quiet enough for restful evenings at home. This gated community is a lovely respite but just steps away from the gaiety of Duval Street and Mallory Square.
The colorful, comfortable two bedroom/ 2.5 bath home sleeps six easily and is fully equipped to make your stay relaxing and effortless. The in-unit washer/dryer means you barely have to pack, making your stay even easier.
A bright kitchen is fully equipped, but you likely won't use it because there are so many terrific restaurants close by serving wonderful food around the clock -- some even deliver right to your front door. But just in case, you'll have all the equipment you need to fix your favorite specialties.
The second floor king bedroom with ensuite bath has a private balcony for cocktails or, dare we say, sunbathing au naturale. A HDTV with wifi streaming capability means you can prop in bed and watch movies to your heart's content. A washer and dryer are tucked away so you can pack light and stay longer.
The third floor twin/king bedroom with ensuite bath is very private and perfect for kids or adults. The HDTV with wifi streaming capability will keep guests of all ages happy for hours.
The front porch is perfect for people watching, and Harry Truman's Little White House is right next door. Coffee on the porch is practically de rigueur most mornings -- before your bike off to a freshly made breakfast at one of the many local restaurants, if you don't want to cook at home.
But this is Key West. Get outside and enjoy the weather and all the fun. Park the car and bike to all the local sites or just relax by the pool or at the beach.
1st floor of this lovely home features vaulted ceilings in the living room, dining area and kitchen. A half bath is conveniently tucked away on this main living level. The palm-bordered front porch is a great place to relax for coffee or cocktails and gets sun in the morning and shade after noon; perfect.
2nd floor has a king bedroom, private balcony and ensuite bath. A washer/dryer is hidden away in a closet.
3rd floor has twin beds that easily convert to a king and an ensuite bath.
Private swimming pool for tenant use only is across the street.
Electric grill for relaxing dinners at home.
Two bikes provided, so park the car in the included parking space and bike it!
Short 5-minute walk to Mallory Square, Duval Street and very close to many sights and restaurants. Gated community with no thru traffic; gates locked at 6 p.m.; you are provided a gate key. Front of home is sunny in morning and shady in the afternoon, perfect for people watching and relaxing on the front porch....moreless

Year Purchased: 2013
About: We are retired, frequent world travelers and live in the Washington, DC, area. We like interesting, fun, active pursuits but sometimes just want to put our feet up and relax with a glass of wine and watch a great old or new movie.
Why Truman Annex: We've been visiting Key West for more than ten years and stayed in a Foundry unit in 2012. That did it; we wanted one, and we were fortunate when a unit came on the market. The location is perfect. We can walk to dinner and drinks and never touch a car or a bike.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: Truman Annex is unique. It is a beautiful, elegant area that is quiet but not stodgy. The gated community is closely monitored by on-site security guards and late night revelers cannot wander through the area, yet it is close to all the fun on Duval Street and the waterfront.
