We are a family of four that usually stay at the Westin in town. We will always rent this unit in the Shipyard. There was a large group of families that all rented together in the Truman Annex and our unit was by far the nicest being recently updated. This unit had brand new everything from the linens and towels, to the furniture and appliances and was updated with no spare of expense or style. We rented bikes and rode all over town daily and found the best places to eat close to the Annex. We walked over to Mallory Square nightly and watched the street performers and toasted to the Sunset. We rode across the island to enjoy the beaches across town - the perfect family get a way! We received our security deposit within a week and the owner was so easy to work with and accommodating. She has the nicest lady on site that helped us when we locked ourselves out! We had the best time and love key west and this unit! This unit is the perfect the spot for a romantic weekend for two, a girls / boy's trip or a family - very comfortable!

Great Condo in Key West!
Great Condo in Key West!
This condo is everything it promises, luxurious finishes, really comfortable bedding, a great little kitchen and living area. Huge wall mounted TV with pandora and netflix. It's small, but perfect for 2-3 people. We were two girlfriends traveling together. This has a great location by the pool, and great location in Key West just a few blocks from Duval and the Green Parrot. Truman Annex is one of my favorite places to stay, quiet and but close to everything. The balconies off the living room/bedroom and balcony off the kitchen were a nice touch too. Kitchen had most of what we needed, we didnt really cook much, just used the fridge. Fluffy towels were provided, has washer and dryer inside that comes in handy. Small fridge without a real freezer, if that matters to you, didnt to us. I would highly recommend this condo!

About the owner: We are a family that loves to vacation in warm spots and have enjoyed Key West for many years. We love the VRBO approach and it has helped us to buy many rental properties over the last several years. We own and operate them ourselves and offer a personable experience to our guests. We have also enjoyed several Disney Cruises and have come to respect and enjoy the Disney Experience and try to deliver the same service to our guests and strive to offer the best rental at a low cost to keep our occupancy at a level to help us afford our dream of expanding to other areas.
Why the Owner Chose Truman Annex:
This property is a smaller property but in the nicest area of Key West. We believe we have decorated impeccably and have installed closet organizers to avoid crowding the rooms with unnecessary furniture. Its a clean and overall 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.
