About Al Metty

My wife Carol and I are retired and live in Ann Arbor Michigan during the Summer and Key West during the Winter. I am a retired CPM or Certified Property Manager and as such, understand very well that a well furnished and maintained home results in a pleasent experience. Carol and I strive to make your stay as original as possible.

Al Metty purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Al Metty chose Key West

I was visiting a friend who's parents married during WWII in Key West. It only took one visit and the second day of that visit to know that Key West was a special place and where I wanted to spend time

What makes this townhome unique

Everything is within walking distance. You get great exercise without even feeling like it. A stroll down Duval is 1 mile each way, a walk to the Historic Waterfront and strolling back can be a couple miles, walk 4 blocks to Kelly's on the way to Mallory Square for Happy Hour. The list goes on and on. I take a car but I bet I do not put 50 miles on it the entire winter unless I am going to No Name Pub on Big Pine Key.

The Plantation stay...awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The Plantation was bigger and better than the pictures showed. Wonderful location relatively close to the beach, Duvall, and Mallory Streets. Most everything was within walking distance (but bring comfortable shoes). Only thing we needed at The Plantation was food and some toiletries. Having a full kitchen and grill made it inexpensive to eat. We only ate out 2 times the whole week we were there. I totally recommend The Plantation and the owner was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. 5 stars in my book!!!

Perfect "Home" Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous condo with everything we needed for our week stay! Very clean and comfortable. Gated community.. Walking distance to.. Everything really. We would most definitely stay here again when we go back to Key West. Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us. Our family had a great trip & made so many fun memories.

The home was beautiful and very well located for us to walk and bike ride to everything.

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean, had everything we needed and was well located. We would book again when in Key West!

All the amenities were top notch from the bed linens to the kitchen supplies. Our family of 5 felt very comfortable all week long. We loved the convenience of the neighborhood and the helpfulness of the host during booking and our stay in the home.

It was an overall excellent experience!

Perfect rental in great location

  • 5 of 5

The owner goes ABOVE and BEYOND. There are extra blankets, towels, and even some soap and items to get you started when you show up. I was amazed at how well thought out the owner did for the rental. On top of that, they provide you with recommended restaurants and happy hour locations that seriously fit the agenda of anyone. The pool is very nice, there is a grocery store within walking distance, and on site laundry. The rooms were plenty large for the 3 couples we had staying here and having 3 bathrooms made this feel as though we all had our own hotel, but shared the kitchen and outdoor spaces. Thanks again for taking the time to make the trip extra special.

Perfect stay in Truman Annex!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Plantation house over New Years and had an incredible time! The house was great for six people. We really enjoyed the beautiful back patio (and grill), community pool, washer and dryer, three full bathrooms, and most importantly the prime location. Truman Annex is near the heart of all the action, but also still provided a peaceful, quiet atmosphere. We rented bikes for the duration of the stay and were able to cruise the island at our leisure.

Key West allows for the perfect balance of relaxation and play. We experienced some wonderful food/drink, fishing, snorkeling, jet skiing, parasailing, and more, while also enjoying some low key days at Fort Zachary beach, and by the Annex pools. Al was incredibly helpful, providing numerous guides for restaurants and activities. I would 100% recommend this property and hope to come back soon to revel in it again myself!
