About the Truman Annex: You'll enjoy the private and beautifully landscaped pool and grounds of the Truman Annex gated community.

Truman Annex is a secure, gated community, and becomes very quiet at night, which is great for sleeping.

Car: Not Necessary

Closer to Havanna than we are to Miami, Key West is the Southernmost point in the continental United States. Only 4 miles by 2 miles, the island is packed with tourist activities and calm retreats. Our home is located in the Old Town historic district where you can see beautiful Victorian mansions blend with 'conch' cottages. Come for the fishing, scuba diving, and beaches, and stay for the night life, nightly sunset celebration, and of course the infamous Fantasy Fest week in October.

Walk 10 minutes to the shaded beach at Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park. Or walk 1 minute to our heated and cooled pool. Walk two blocks to Ernest Hemingway's home, two blocks to famous Duval St, and 8 minutes to Mallory Square (nightly sunset celebration).

Our street address is 208 Southard St, Key West. Park your car in our reserved, off-street space, and forget about it for the rest of your stay.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We've traveled a lot, always looking for that special place that had everything we were looking for: Tropical climate, Adventure activities, Night life, Beaches, history, beautiful homes and surroundings, and easy to get to. We found it all in Key West, and knew this was a place we could come back to again & again.

Why the Owner Chose Truman Annex, Key West, FL, USA:
We had been to Key West several times and stayed all over the island. But when we visited the shipyard condos in the Truman Annex, we knew this was the perfect spot. No more driving and searching for parking places, now we can walk or bike to everywhere we want to go -- activities, beaches, night life, exploring history, or just sit quietly doing nothing.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our home has a floor plan that is shared with only 2 other units in the Shipyard -- with these large porches front and rear. Both bedrooms have french doors that open onto the porch, and the living area has two more, that flood our home with natural light. We've tried to stock our place with everything we (and you too) would need for week in paradise. And we have very professional and attentive property managers who are as concerned as we are that your stay is relaxed and trouble free.
