Welcome to Key West and the Shipyard section of the Truman Annex. You have many choices of accommodations since I am not a real estate salesman or property manager allow me let the photos speak for themselves. My oversized two bedroom, one bathroom condominium is located on picturesque Southard Street, the main entrance to the best location on the island, the Truman Annex where you can walk to just about everything you want to see or do. I am confident you would like this vacation home away from home. It is impeccably designed, meticulously maintained and you are surrounded with restful colors on the wall and art work from my many visits to Cuba on educational and humanitarian trips. I have everything you need for a worry free island vacation. Top mattresses, high thread linens, thirsty bath towels, large deep beach towels, high speed WIFI, reserved and secure parking and cable TV. Your comfort is my first priority and between my home itself and the large back deck shaded with a large umbrella, you can "rest" assured that you will enjoy your stay. The furniture is comfortable. The kitchen fully equipped from the Bosch dishwasher to the exotic micro wave and the Keurig coffee maker. Need a hair dryer? Got it. Iron? In above the large front loading washer and dryer. Beach chairs? Next to the W/D. Ask me about other amenities. And yes, there is the mandatory blender. This is my personal home so I would like to deal with you directly on email and telephone before we make a booking. Now on to more detail. Oh one more thing. If your party is looking for additional space, check out my cottage five doors down which is # 361238 here on VRBO.

About Jack Agnew
I've lived in Key West since 1999 spending a tad over a half year here and the rest in the Boston area where my two daughters and two granddaughters live. My career has ranged from being an early morning DJ in Cleveland, Ohio to a television career in Seattle, Memphis, San Francisco and Boston. Then I was a partner in a public relations firm in Boston that was purchased by a large international PR firm based in Paris. So my other career has been as a college professor, professional actor/singer and serving on such non profit boards as Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston; Big Sister Association, The Salvation Army and Metro West Legal Services. And of course renting out my two vacation homes in Key West, the other being #361238 here on VRBO. Come on down.
Jack Agnew purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Jack Agnew chose Old Town
Ever since I took my two daughters camping on the keys, I have had TAE (Truman Annex Envy), I couldn't afford to buy down here but I visited on business trips and for vacations. When I sold my public relations company in 1999, I got on a plane the next week with my daughters and we purchased our first property in the Shipyard section of the Truman Annex. When the market peaked in 2005, we sold that unit and bought a cottage in Shipyard. Then in December of 2016, we saw an extraordinary end unit condominium come up for sale and after selling a property in Boston, we acquired this second unit where I am typing this information and called it "A Touch of Havana" to remind me of the many trips I have taken to Cuba on humanitarian and educational trips in the last 15 years.
What makes this Condo unique
Well some of the USP's (Unique Selling Propositions) are 1. A family pass to then nearby Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park beach. 2. Special power ports to charge your cell phone or other electronics 3. This is among the largest of the two bedroom, one bath end units as my property on beautiful Southard Street was part of Phase 1 of the Truman Annex when it was built. Later units have a smaller footprint. 4. I deal directly with you the guest. No automatic electronic bookings, commissions, fees. We communicate before we each decide this will work and be a win win for both of us,

Wonderfully charming space and amazing host!
Jack made everything easy. We loved his charming space!!
I am humbled with a guest gives a good review because I am sometimes told by rental "experts" not to overwhelm a guest with attention to detail. But renting one's property should also go by the Golden Rule. I hope these guests return and I thank them for a nice review.
Great Cottage in the best location!
This well equipped two story townhome/cottage was a pleasure to stay in. Had all the comforts of home to accommodate me my husband and 18 month old son and our dog too! In the perfect location- you can literally walk anywhere. The owner was a joy to work with. Highly recommend .
Obviously I am very appreciative when a guest gives my vacation home a good review. I travel also so I certainly subscribe to the "Do unto others etc." I have been very fortunate over twenty years of renting of having terrific guests who take good care of my cottage when they are there and I certainly thank them for that. I hope Joanna my guest will return.
Ideal place to vacation in Key West; exactly what we needed
We truly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. My husband had business in Key West, so it worked out great for us. The cottage is located within a short walking distance to restaurants, entertainment, and so many tourist attractions. It made the stay so much more enjoyable. The cottage is very nice and provided everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and having the extra bathroom made it convenient for our son who traveled with us. We are so appreciative of Jack, the owner. He was readily available to answer any questions or help in any way he could. We highly recommend staying here for your next Key West vacation.
As you will see on all the listings in the Truman Annex, this is THE place to stay on the island as everything you want to see or do is in easy walking distance. I will recommend my favorite restaurants, attractions and adventures in my information kit
