Envision yourself relaxing in a beautiful wood framed conch cottage with overhead fans lazily turning below the sloping tin roof in the heart of Old Town in Key West. This is the best value in Key West as it is no cookie cutter small rental condo but a private townhome (one of only seven available for rent) in the Shipyard section of the Truman Annex with its gated entrance and 24 hour security. Our Bermuda-style cottage is steps away from sunning yourself on the beach, at the pool or enjoying the excitement of Duval Street with its many award winning restaurants, unique shops, creative art galleries, lively bars and bawdy night clubs. The famed Mallory Square and the water activities are also a short walk away. And value? How about free reserved and secure parking? High speed internet connection and a beach pass for your entire group to the Ft Zachary Taylor State Park beach?.
We also offer themed getaways for your honeymoon; anniversary; birthday or a week of romance.
We know you will enjoy building memories in our home as well as Key West. On my living room walls are paintings I have purchased in Cuba from my humanitarian and education trips to the island. The colorful and yet relaxing paint hues on the wall are from my visits to Bermuda which is why I call my vacation home 'A Touch of Bermuda in Key West'.
The bedroom configuration is the best. The master bedroom suite is upstairs and separate from the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. Both parties have great privacy by not sharing a bathroom between two bedrooms.
You will want to be outside much of the time so relax on my front porch facing picturesque Southard St. and say hello to your neighbors. Or for privacy, the very large back deck with comfortable chairs for reading and a dining table for six for a private dinner under the stars is just the ticket.

The Truman Annex is a former Naval base in the heart of Old Town in Key West. President Harry Truman used to vacation here so this residential complex is named after him. There is a wonderful tour available in the home he used as his summer residence. Duval Street is two blocks away. The pool is 100+ steps out my back garden gate down a pebble path. The best beach in Key West, Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park is within walking distance and I have a beach pass for your stay. The famed sunsets at Mallory Square are short walk away as are the many tourist attractions such as Hemingway House; the Aquarium and Mel Fisher's Treasure Museum. And if water sports are your thing, the snorkel, scuba and fishing trips all start at the local pier within walking distance of my cottage.
Golf: There is an 18 hole golf course in Key West which is open to the public. It's not Pebble Beach or Augusta National but you can keep your game up to snuff by playing a new course. The links are within a short drive from my cottage but alas, this is one attraction not in walking distance. Good luck in breaking par.
Other Activities: Some really fine dining at award winning restaurants. On the walls of my living room, I have a painting of the Blue Heaven restaurant, one of my very favorites. It is quintessential Key West.
Come on down.
