Our best stay in Key West yet!

  • 5 of 5

Our last trip to Key West was two years ago and we stayed at the Hyatt, which we enjoyed. However, we enjoyed our stay at this Truman Annex townhouse even more. The townhouse is beautifully decorated and is on a lovely, quiet street. It's about two buildings down from the Truman Whitehouse. Its hard to imagine that the activity of Duval street and Mallory Square are just a few steps away, since the neighborhood is so quiet. We loved eating some of our meals on the unit's peaceful, shady porch. The unit is also just a short walk to the boat launch for Latitudes Restaurant on Sunset Key, which is a must. We had a car, but rarely used it since we could walk to most restaurants, Eaton Street Fish Market, and Fausto's grocery store. We hope to return.

Beautifully Located and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo. Beautiful on the inside and the outside. Perfectly equipped with all you need and the location could not be better. We drove twice and walked or road the bikes the rest of the time. Washing machine and dryer make packing easier and drying towels a breeze. Everything is easy to operate and easy to find. The Beach at Ft Zachary is beautiful and welcoming and literally within walking distance. It was windy so we were unable to snorkel from the beach. For an excellent snorkeling experience, contact Looe Key Resort on Ramrod Key for the best snorkeling you will experience. Take the afternoon trip and enjoy the great crew and the free drink tickets from the Tiki bar. They treated us like family and the reef was amazing! And no one could beat their price, its about a 30 minute drive north. We took a boat charter directly scheduled through Fish Check at the Key West Marina and the experience was a good one. Fresh Mahi Mahi for dinner was a welcomed treat. The entire trip was wonderful and BJ was fantastic to work with. Look no further, come home to Truman Annex and relax.

Great Truman Annex stay

  • 5 of 5

we had a great week staying in this condo. truman Annex is our favorite location in Key West with easy access to duval and great restruants and bars as well as Zack Taylor beach and mallory for sunset. Dinner at Latitudes on Sunset Key is a must for a romantic night out, it's also great for lucnh and includes a free boat ride to get there. The free bikes are perfect transportation for the island and much better that a car. the condo is very comfortable and clean. BJ was great to work with and accomidated our flight schedules.

Best Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the best vacation ever during our recent visit to Key West. Two couples shared the Hideaway townhome, and it was the perfect setting. The location is ideal, and the front porch cannot be beat. We felt right at home, and the neighbor was extremely helpful. The home is comfortable, and having a washer/dryer combo is very nice.

We took advantage of the many nice restaurants nearby. Highly recommend DJ's Clam Shack for the lobster roll. All the places were tried were excellent: Sarabeths, Lattitudes, Rick's Blue Heaven (tried both the blueberry pancakes and the lobster benedict-a must have). The nearby State Park is a great place to catch some sun, and it is very clean.

Already thinking of booking another stay next year. BJ is a wonderful host, and her followup was very appreciated.

A Heavenly Retreat So Close To Everything!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we entered this beautiful townhouse, we were very impressed with the quality of the furnishings. As we explored the area, we found the townhouse to be a short 4 minute walk to Mallory Square where we enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. Because the townhome has 3 floors, there are 2 bedroom suites, each on its own floor. The washer and dryer were a welcome addition as well. This is definitely a place we would love to return to on our next visit to Key West.

Great place and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

First of all BJ was great to deal with. She was very flexible and was able to confirm us after another VRBO owner canceled 5 days prior to our planned arrival after confirming with us a month earlier.

There were 4 of us (Mom, Dad and 2 kids 15 and 16). Plenty of room for us. Everything was set up to make the condo feel like your home. The location is within walking distance from most everything we did. This was or first family trip to Key West and learned a lot for the next visit.

A couple recommendations - go to Blue Heaven (great for dinner but also breakfast and lunch). It is a short walk away. Caroline's was great as well.

We did the Fury Snorkel and Eco tour. It was great. We were able to see a few reef sharks and a nurse shark as well as a few 6ft barracuda.

Great place to stay!.
