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 Old Town

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!!!

The Plantation in Truman Annex was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed in Key West July 14-21, 2018. My husband and I traveled with our 16 year old son and his friend and our 19 yr old daughter and her friend. The Plantation in Truman Annex was absolutely perfect. It's location to everything couldn't have been better. Truman Annex is just two blocks from Duval St. so we were close to everything yet in a quiet neighborhood that allowed for nice family time. The Plantation is a beautiful and well appointed home that allowed plenty of room for our group of six. We rented bikes from Eaton St bikes and rode them where ever we wanted to go. Easy ride to the grocery store, the beach, to southernmost point, dinner etc. We didn't move our vehicle all week. Mr. Metty provided us with many recommendations for Key West that were on point and we turned to them daily. We visited the Dry Tortugas, Parasailed with Fury, and Kayaked with Lazy Dog Adventures. Many great places to eat even with a few picky eaters! Blue Heaven, Charley Macs, Two Friends Patio, Roof Top, Foggerty's just to name a few. Looking forward to returning to Key West and Truman Annex.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

It’s in the middle of everything but ay from it all. Sounds impossible but it is also the reality. Al is great and very responsive. The price is right, especially when you consider the location and the beauty of the home.

Beautiful condo, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved every minute of our stay in this beautiful condo. Large enough for six adults to have space with a gorgeous outdoor living area. Indoor/outdoor living at it's best! Quiet location, but only 4-5 blocks to Duval Street. Great walking location to all the entertainment, restaurants, and a wonderful little grocery just a short distance away. Would definitely get this condo again. And Al is simply a joy to work with. Lots of good info and very responsive to inquiries.
