Great for two couples, or family ...each can have their own private bath. Flat screens in both bedrooms and a 55"smart tv in the living room.You can walk out the living room or the master bedroom through the patio french doors, onto the balcony with it's awning.

What makes this condo unique

This Key West getaway is a fully-furnished condo located in the heart of Old Town Key West, nestled in the Truman Annex Community. It's 2 blocks from the famous Duvall Street, yet still Quiet & peaceful.There's a beautiful climate controlled pool with plenty of lounge chairs to work on that Key West tan. Just a short stroll or bike ride to the beautiful Ft. Zachary Taylor Park & beach.1 block to Green Parrot Bar (amazing live music) and The Blue Heaven restaurant and bar (music, atmosphere and great food) and 5 Blocks from Mallory Square where everyone gathers to witness the amazing Key West Sunsets and all the local entertainment.

Delightful Key West Condo

An enjoyable week exploring Key West with Cindy's beautiful condo as home base. Her place is clean, updated and well stocked with everything you need for the week. Close to Duval, yet quiet and relaxing.

I feel like it’s my Key West home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

LOVE it here! So quiet but near everything. Immaculate and so comfortable. Cindy is the BEST to work with! Fort Zachary Taylor Beach has become my little spot of Heaven. This was my third year in a row staying at A Touch of Paradise and I’m already planning for this year. That says more than all the words I could write! Thanks, Cindy!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this condo is first class, completely warm and comfortable. It is bright and welcomes the beautiful weather to join you inside or out. Located close to many attractions, it is easy to get where you want to go whether by bike or by foot. With a pool on the property, you can relax, read, tan and swim in comfort with beautiful palm trees welcoming the balmy breezes. I would recommend this to anyone who feels the need to relax, unwind and immerse yourself the beauty that is Key West. We will make this our destination for years to come.

Nice condo, clean property, cute pool area, and gated, which I loved.

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at the shipyard condos. Cindy's condo was beautiful. Very clean and decorated nicely. I would stay again for sure. We took our bikes and rode everywhere. It was really nice to be able to have a parking spot for our car as well for our further journeys we wanted to take.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

The condo is well equipped and clean. Because of its great location we did not rent a car for the week. Only 2 blocks off of Duval St. and a 15 minute walk to Mallory Sq or the beach.

Renting a bike is an option. Cindy the owner was a joy to work with, giving us all of the information we needed and after finding out we were travelling with a baby gave us some info on baby rental locations. I would not hesitate to rent this place again and would recommend to any of my family or friends who are heading to Key West!!!
