Truman Annex condo description

Greetings from Paradise, where the temperature is 82 degrees, water temperature 80, and the wind SE at 10, just enough breeze to blow sand in my margarita.

'Margarita Villas' are located in historic Old Town in a beautiful, very private gated compound that has won awards as the best development in Florida. (And yes it does have a blender).

It’s just off Duvall Street, with its bustling shops and nightlife; yet quiet and private. Fort Zachary Taylor on the south side of the property has one of our most picturesque beaches located amongst the tall whispering pines of the uplands; the view of the reef and the turquoise waters is magnificent.

The heated pool is conveniently located nearby so you are never far from a refreshing dip or just 'conching out' in the sun.

There are two bedrooms and one (or two) baths; the master bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed, the other, two twins. French doors in the living room open onto the garden deck for outdoor dining or to catch the tropical breezes. Outdoor porch furniture and a gas barbecue are available for cooking your catch or grilling up a casual meal.

The kitchen is completely equipped (including the mandatory BLENDER).

Fully air-conditioned, all rooms have tropical ceiling fans and all linens are provided. There is off street parking for one car.

We have several Condos situated close to one another so we can accommodate large groups.

You can view pictures of all my condos at my website or for more detailed information, call us today.

                  Key West equals Key Fun!!!! 08/23/2014

                  VRBO Bear stayed here:

                  This was our first visit to Key West and what an amazing trip it was! We arrived at this large, beautiful condominium completely stocked with amenities that made us feel right at home. Our first relaxing view of Key West was from our second floor balcony overlooking a tropical and lush flora and fauna surrounding a heated pool. Right from the beginning we knew this trip was going to be a success.

                  The location of our Truman Annex condo could not have been better. The central location of our unit was perfect - we were in walking distance of the most popular and beautiful attractions in Key West. The unit is a VERY short walk to Fort Zachary Taylor which had some of the best and easiest beach access in all of Key West. Staying at Mike’s beautiful unit gave us the chance to explore Key West without having to worry about a vehicle, since with this great location we could easily walk to all popular restaurants, museums, and even the most southern point of the USA!

                  The interior of the unit was very tropical and Florida at heart. The grill provided on the balcony gave us the chance to cook up some locally caught fish and have a more intimate dinner on the balcony. The kitchen was very spacious with plenty of amenities to help with cooking and prepping food. The unit also provided our very own blender to spice up our night with margaritas!

                  Mike, the owner of the unit, made himself available at all times for any questions we had about the unit or nearby attractions. He was very helpful making sure we were able to find the complex and unit when we arrived. When we come back again Mike’s unit in the Truman Annex will DEFINITELY be our number one choice to stay at. We’d like to thank Mike and his family for hosting the VRBO Bear and providing unforgettable memories that we’ll share for a long time.

                  Year Purchased: 1984

                  About the owner: My name is Michael Wernicoff. I grew up in Ocean City, NJ windsurfing the beaches and sailing the back bays. In 1977, when I was 10 years old, we loaded up our car and with our Hobie Cat sailboat in tow; we set off for our first family trip to the Florida Keys. The warm breeze and the turquoise waters brought us back every school vacation. First, we rented a small house for a week, The next year a condo for two weeks. A few years later we bought our first home which we rented out between stays ... and Vacation Rentals in Key West was born. After college I got a 'real job', but warm waters and balmy breezes were calling, so I set off to teach windsurfing. First, in Key West, at Smathers Beach then in the Turks and Caicos Islands, St. Lucia and Mexico. Eventually moveing back to Key West. Now we have two little girls who love the emerald waters as much as we do. When the lovely gated community in the Truman Annex was being built, we knew that it was going to be the best rental location in town and we were right! We now have a wonderful selection of vacation homes and condos to rent, so take a look and give me a call. I would love the opportunity to help create a great vacation experience for you and your family, and to share with you, the Key West that my family and I fell in love with when I was ten and continue to enjoy today. 'Your blender is waiting' Thank You Mike Michael Wernicoff

                  Why the Owner Chose Truman Annex:
