Property description

The 5 Star Reviews say it all. Our guests love to spend a week or a month at our sunny, leafy green vacation townhome.
Flip Flop Retreat is in Old Town Truman Annex within walking distance of live music, entertainment, shopping, restaurants, and outdoor activities. Return home to the pool at your back gate. You will think you are deep in the Caribbean... and you are! You don't even need a passport.
We have two bedrooms, each with a bath ensuite. A pullout sofa downstairs can accommodate a fifth guest. The half-bath downstairs, rare in Truman Annex townhomes, provides extra convenience and privacy.
As a guest in Flip Flop Retreat you have all conveniences you need to relax and entertain in style and comfort. BBQ on the landscaped terrace with the large new Weber grill, dine outdoors on the deck under the ceiling fan below the balcony or in air conditioned comfort indoors.
Secure wireless internet lets you relax with all the entertainment you need: Sony 46' TV with BluRay/DVD. You could even telework if you can tear yourself away from the attractions of Key West.
From the comfortable Adirondack chairs on the master bedroom balcony you might watch the moon rise over the pool in the evening or enjoy the sunrise with a cup of coffee. Our favorite way to start the day is to walk down Caroline Street to the Cuban Coffee Queen and drink their wonderful iced coffee on the balcony at Flip Flop.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We were frequent visitors to Key West while serving in the Navy. We plan to retire here because of the magnificent weather, the entertainment, and range of outdoor activities. We live in Annapolis and visit frequently to keep Flip Flop in great shape.

Why the Owner Chose Truman Annex, Key West, FL, USA:
We wanted to be in Truman Annex because it is quiet and yet close to everything. We can walk or ride bikes anywhere we want to go. This townhome is one of the few with a half bath downstairs. We like the fact that Flip Flop is steps away from the pool and has a tranquil tropical terrace. French doors open directly to our outside dining area, the BBQ and gate to the pool. Our reserved parking space is conveniently near the front door. After many vacations in Key West having fun and doing research, we found the perfect spot to put our feet up. FlipFlop Retreat is quiet despite the festive atmosphere in town.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Knowing Flip Flop would be our retirement home we started making renovations right away. We have added high efficiency air conditioning, washer and dryer, ceramic top range, and tropical landscaping, and have renovated the two upstairs ensuite bathrooms and the downstairs powder room. We love coming to Key West from Annapolis to vacation at Flop Flop Retreat.
