Guestbook Comments: This is our fourth trip to Key West and your home is by far the nicest place we've stayed? So bright and airy, such nice art work and so many amenities -- loved the DVD and CD player. One of our favorite things was watching the dazzling sunsets from the upstairs front porch - each one seemed more beautiful than the last. Many thanks, we hope to come back soon

Guestbook Comments: Jennie - As I said, you'll have to throw me out! I am kicking myself for not doing this sooner. Your home helped my two kids first visit to the Key West to be the best! We will be back. PS: Loved the lights on the palms at night.

Guestbook Comments: Just a thank you from our heart for sharing your beautiful home in Key West. We had just a terrific time. The location was fabulous. We loved every minute of it! Thank you so much. Linda Mills

About Bruce H. Klein

We have owned our Key West Paradise for 17 years and it is amazing every time we come down. We visit frequently when the our home is not rented as we live in Sarasota, Florida on Siesta Key

Bruce H. Klein purchased this townhome in 2000

Why Bruce H. Klein chose Old Town

This is a piece of paradise. Everything is close by and when you want some privacy, you have it with out home. However, if you want to have some fun, eat great food, play in the water, there is no better place.

What makes this townhome unique

How easy is it is to walk anywhere and you have the city with its amenities just around the corner. If you want some action or entertainment just walk out your front door if you would like a nice quiet evening rent a sail boat or make your meal at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know that we all are so enjoying our stay in your lovely home here in Key West. What an oasis! It feels both spacious and cozy. You've created a sweet comfortable space, and we are thankful that you share it with others who need a rest from work and the daily grind. I absolutely love the garden, as I spend all of my springs and summers digging in the dirt at home, filling my yard with buds and blooms. I have lovingly tended to the potted plants here, making sure thirsty ones got a drink. I took the attached photo of an avian visitor this afternoon. :-) It will be hard to leave on Saturday, but we will definitely be restored when we do. Thank you, again, for sharing your home.

Perfect vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was bright, cheerful and clean, with a cute private backyard. It was close to everything we wanted to do, and the owners were great to work with. I would definitely recommend this home!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay in Key West! Just one block from the "0 Mile" marker, the property is conveniently located within is short walk to Mallory Square, the Bite and Harbor walk, and all of the attractions of Duval Street and the Old Town. Some of the better restaurants, bars, and happy hours are within three blocks. It's also near the Zachary Taylor State Park beach, which is the best beach experience on the island. The Truman Annex is a high-end development of luxury homes, town homes, and condominiums. The streets are lined with white picket privacy fences and exotic trees and flowering plants that form a canopy over the roadways. The property itself is in keeping with the neighborhood. It is pleasant, spacious, airy, comfortable, well-appointed, well-stocked, clean, and relatively private. The two master bedrooms with separate baths were a real plus, as were the two balconies and charming patio for enjoying the outdoors. A nicely landscaped and maintained community pool provides a nice place to relax on your lazy off days. One of the best features is that the owners will provide excellent suggestions based on your interests so that you don't waste your time sorting through the myriad things to do and places to go. They already know where the jewels are hidden.

The Feeling of Home in Key West

  • 5 of 5

In searching for a vacation rental for the one precious week my husband and I, along with my brother and sister-in-law had to stay in Key West, I happened upon this listing, which fit our criteria of having two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. How fortunate for us! The photos here are great representations, but the place is even so much better than photos! The living/dining area even more spacious than we thought, and the four of us made good use of both the indoor and outdoor dining tables, where we enjoyed card games and cocktails, and admired the lovely backyard garden. From the house, it is just a stone's throw to the nightlife on Duval, but just far enough away so that only the music from the bars wafts down the street late at night, like a lullaby, as you sit on the 2nd floor balcony overlooking the yard. It is also a short stroll to the beach at Fort Zachary, or the daily sunset celebration, at Mallory, as you wind your way through Truman Annex and admire the stately homes that line its streets. You feel far removed from the hustle and bustle of nightlife as you walk the quiet lanes which surround the house. This is our 2nd stay in a home within the complex. Last time, we had a much larger group and needed a four bedroom home, but this year a smaller home fit our needs. My husband and I have been visiting Key West for 15 years, renting space in resorts or B&Bs on the island, which were all wonderful, too, but never made us feel as comfortable as staying in a true 'home," which is how we felt here in Bruce & Margaret Jean's place. A couple of tips for newbies to KW: If you're going to the beach at Ft. Zach, pack a pair of water shoes in your luggage! The coral beach is difficult to walk on without them. But the beach itself is stunning, and well worth the investment of a $10 pair of water shoes! Every year, we try restaurants that are new or ones we haven't visited before. This year the highlights were had at The Thirsty Mermaid , where I had the diver scallops, which were just amazing. We also had some fantastic grilled oysters. My sister-in-law doesn't eat seafood, so had the grilled cheese, which sounds strange for an upscale joint, but was the BEST she's ever had! I had to taste test, and I agreed! Another new place we tried was Blue Macaw, where the Double Cut Pork Chop, NY Sirloin Steak, and the Ahi Tuna Tartare left us feeling satisfied. You won't starve in Key West. Make your plans to stay here and enjoy the best Key West has to offer!

Great location and super nice property!

  • 5 of 5

Not much for writing reviews, but this property deserves a great review. We have been to KW several times and have stayed in several locations around town. This has to be one of the best locations and nicest properties to date. Very well set up with everything we needed for the week and it is well kept. Thank you for sharing the property with us.

SUPER Accommodations!!

  • 5 of 5

Your home is wonderfully appointed and maintained. It is most convenient to everything and we walked everywhere. We rented the bikes you recommended and enjoyed a trip to the lighthouse. Ft Taylor beach and sunset were awesome, and the Coast Guard ship Ingham was fascinating. We could not have enjoyed our trip any better than by staying in your home. Thanks for making our vacation complete and totally enjoyable.

Perfect Location

This was our first trip to Key West and we could not have picked a better place to stay. Perfect location - short walk to Duval Street, and a very nice Condo - clean and neat with a great patio.
