Truman Annex condo description

Ernest Hemingway and Jimmy Buffet memorabilia surround you in what's called 'The Writer's Retreat'.
This Completely Renovated (July 2013) two bedroom, one bath condo with bleached grey hardwood flooring throughout is highlighted by a massive 65 inch Plasma TV loaded with thousands of movies at your fingertips. Relax on the designer furniture while enjoying the full collection of Hemingway's books or lose yourself in The Master Bedroom retreat which has been luxuriously decorated with 1000 thread count bedding on the Romantic Canopy Bed with French doors leading out to a spacious rear patio overlooking the pool.
The guest bedroom has two twin upgraded pillow top beds that can be converted to a King bed to accommodate a family or two couples. The King is stocked with a very thick down padding and luxurious linens for maximum comfort. Enjoy the songs of Buffet as the guest bedroom is decorated in the song writer's theme with framed sheet music.
The 1950'2 themed state of the art kitchen has been equipped with an imported European SMEG Fridge and all new Stainless Appliances.
The art deco themed bathroom has been completely remodeled as well.
The front Family room area has a brand new queen sleeper sofa bed with a down bedding pad and down bedding for extra sleeping space. All pillows and bedding are down and of high quality for your comfort.

Please enjoy the slide show of our new wonderful home in Key West and we hope to accommodate your vacation needs.

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About: This home is managed by Simplicity Vacation Property Management. The home is owned by a family that loves to vacation in warm spots and has enjoyed Key West for many years. They loved the VRBO approach, but strive to offer a personable experience to our guests. In furtherance of this belief, they took great strides to decorate the home in such a way as to make it part of the total vacation experience. They hope when looking back on your vacation, the house will feature prominently in your memories and live on in spirit.

          Why Truman Annex:
          This property is a smaller property, but is located in the nicest area of Key West. We believe you will find it has been decorated impeccably and is designed with vacationers in mind with the installation of items such as closet organizers to avoid crowding the rooms with unnecessary furniture. It is a clean and above all else fun place to stay as a family or as a couple's get away.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          Our unit has a parking spot right in front of the front door and the back of our unit overlooks the pool area which is a gorgeous view. When comparing units available we found this particular unit to have a superior location within Shipyard as several overlook a parking lot or are in view of other unit's yards.
