Simply a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this lovely cottage for eight nights in July. Everything about this place is stellar - location, space, comfort of beds, bathrooms, kitchen, back porch - we fully enjoyed our time here. Our 13-year-old could not get enough of the community pool, and so we swam daily. The location is perfect for strolling to the beach, or toward Duval Street in the opposite direction. So many amazing sights within walking distance. It was warm and humid during our stay, but the excellent air conditioning combined with powerful fans in the bedrooms and living room brought us welcome relief (we are from California and are used to a dry heat!). We were so very comfortable there, and stayed long enough for the condo to start feeling like "home". If we ever find ourselves in Key West again, this place would be our top choice to rent again - no question!

Fabulous Key West cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this adorable cottage along with another couple for 4 nights in June for our first visit to Key West and also our first experience with VRBO. This wonderful cottage is exactly as pictured, and was perfectly clean and comfortable for us. We loved spending our mornings and evenings on the patio out back, and enjoyed using the community pool a few times as well. The kitchen had all that we needed- dishes, appliances, etc.- during our stay. The location of the cottage is absolutely perfect! The community is quiet and quaint, and just a short easy walk from Duval Street. We highly recommend renting bicycles from the rental shop just up Southard Street to easily get around the island. The owner was friendly and answered all questions promptly throughout the booking process. We plan to visit Key West in the future, and hope to stay here again!

Beautiful, comfortable end unit

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several Truman Annex units and this one is just as beautiful as it looks in the photos. The kitchen was well-equipped. The beds are very comfortable. This unit is more spacious than others we've stayed in and the patio is well appointed. We used the grill a few times for dinner and it worked perfectly. We had no problems at all - everything worked well, including the AC (other reviews indicated that there was a problem, but it worked great while we were there). We did call the local contact person to let him know that the patio's back gate was broken, upon our arrival. He called someone to take care of it right away. Lovely unit and the owners were responsive and friendly. The next time we're looking for a unit that sleeps 4, we'll definitely check out the availability for this place again.

Great space and location

  • 5 of 5

We're a couple that likes to spread out, and the cottage was perfect for our getaway. It is very spacious and exactly as pictured. The cottage was spotless on arrival and everything worked properly, including the A/C (and we like it cold). We only used the master bedroom on the second floor, but there is a nice guest bedroom on the first floor that would allow for larger groups or families. The owners were very easy to work with and we had no problems leading up to or during our stay.

The cottage is located a 15-20 minute drive from the airport and a 5-minute walk to Duval. You can easily walk to any place in old town in about 15 minutes or less. We also walked to the marina for our snorkeling excursion, which is also where you can get the ferry to Dry Tortugas National Park. We opted to take a sea plane there instead of the ferry (highly recommended); for that we needed to drive to the airport.

While the cottage is attached to a row of houses, as an end unit duplex it really feels like a stand alone, not an apartment. It has double height ceilings, giving it a very open and airy feeling, and the side and back windows look out to lovely tropical trees and plants. The front of the cottage is on a road that gets some traffic, including trucks, but the advantage is that you can sit on the porch and people watch, since it it the main road leading to the beach and a lot of people walk or bike there. Traffic noise was no problem at all. The same can't be said for the roosters, but that's a fact of life in Key West. They make sure you don't sleep too late, no matter how much partying you did the night before!

The complex has a decent sized, very clean pool a few steps from the back of the cottage, so you don't need to cross any roads to get to it. The pool furniture is not the most comfortable, just plain hard white plastic with no cushioning or webbing. Shade is limited at the pool, but when we were there it was too hot for us even in the shade so we didn't spend a lot of time there. The beach (Fort Zachery Taylor) is also a 10 minute walk. Make sure to wear water shoes, because the beach and ocean are very rocky.

All in all, the cottage is the perfect mix of size, amenities, and location. I highly recommend it for a visit to Key West.

Returning Conch

  • 3 of 5

The location of the condo was excellent! It was furnished very well and laid out conveniently for 2 couples! The pool and parking lot was very close and handy! The only problem we had with the unit was the air conditioning, it was woefully inadequate for the size of unit! The temperature stayed at around 77-81 inside the condo and we had to use the provided fan to make it bearable! Ceiling fans (none) in this unit would help the AC a great deal! With an AC upgrade or repair and a grill on the deck this would be paradise! I would not recommend this unit to friends during the warm season until the AC is repaired, although Truman Annex IS the best place to stay! Manager was very friendly! Good deal overall!

Owner's Response: While we do regret that our guests, May5-14, 2015, experienced some discomfort due to the A/C not working properly, this could have been totally avoided if they had only called to let me know that there was a problem. This is clearly stated in the contract, call if there are any problems. They did not. We did not find out that there was a problem with the A/C until after our guests had left & the cleaners came in. The cleaners reported the problem & it was taken care of immediately. The A/C unit is only 2 years old and just needed a very simple repair. All is in good repair now.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Key West has been on my list of places to visit. This is a lovely, spotless cottage that looks like the photos & is in a wonderful location. Lots of linens, tons of pool towels and a well outfitted kitchen. Played cards at night on the covered back deck. Would stay here again & recommend to friends. Try Santiagos Bodega & La Creperie both on Petronia St and don't miss the Truman Winter White House...a real piece of history.. had a great tour guide. Park your car and walk this unique village.
