Roomy, lovely unit in a gated shady neighborhood. Quiet, but so close to all the action! Two blocks form Duval and 2 blocks from Mallery Square. Great working with BJ and condo was nicely stocked!

Location location!

  • 5 of 5

Location was wonderful! Off the crazy busy Duval St.....but close enough to walk to it.

Beach was not easy to get going on by it.

Loved sitting on the front porch watching the activity, but very quiet.

Bikes are no longer available...but didn't miss them.

Very comfortable condo, great location and owner BJ was great to work with!

Marco Island, FL

Beautiful large condo in the absolute perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We’ll start out with the summary for those reading multiple reviews and need to go right to the bottom line. This year will be our 5th year in BJ’s beautiful hideaway, which is by far the greatest place we have stayed in over the 20 years we have be taking a yearly vacation to Key West. Everything we could possibly need is there; it is just like being at home. Add to that all the little surprise and delights like two bicycles, 2nd floor washer/dryer and a Keurig, and it just don’t get any better.

As they say in the real estate world, Location, Location, Location! Walk just two blocks off the hustle and bustle of Duval St. and you enter into the quiet gated community of Truman Annex. Mallory Square with the nightly entertainment and sunsets is a few short blocks the other way. Anyone familiar with Key West knows you don’t want a car since there is nowhere to park, and getting a cab at the end of the evening is problematic. But you still have an assigned off-street parking space for when you need to drive to the supermarket or go sightseeing. And there is just something warm and fuzzy about staying in a totally renovated historic building, only steps from where Harry Truman used to vacation.

If you’re looking for value, go no further. Sharing a condo with another couple is less expensive than a B&B. What would you rather have, a bedroom with its own bath, or a room with a shared bathroom down the hall? Then you have the entire first floor with living room, dinette, kitchen and half bath, which is about the same size as a 2BR/1BA unit in the Shipyard.

BJ is always just a phone call away, whether it’s telling you where something is you can’t find, or helping you connect your computer to the internet.
