About the property

2 Bed/2.5 Bath Truman Annex Foundry Home

Weekly And Long-term Rentals

Located in picturesque Truman Annex in fabulous, sunny Key West, Alegre is close to all the fun and activities yet quiet enough for restful evenings at home. This gated community is a lovely respite but just steps away from the gaiety of Duval Street and Mallory Square.

The colorful, comfortable two bedroom/ 2.5 bath home sleeps six easily and is fully equipped to make your stay relaxing and effortless. The in-unit washer/dryer means you barely have to pack, making your stay even easier.

A bright kitchen is fully equipped, but you likely won't use it because there are so many terrific restaurants close by serving wonderful food around the clock -- some even deliver right to your front door. But just in case, you'll have all the equipment you need to fix your favorite specialties.

The second floor king bedroom with ensuite bath has a private balcony for cocktails or, dare we say, sunbathing au naturale. A HDTV with wifi streaming capability means you can prop in bed and watch movies to your heart's content. A washer and dryer are tucked away so you can pack light and stay longer.

The third floor twin/king bedroom with ensuite bath is very private and perfect for kids or adults. The HDTV with wifi streaming capability will keep guests of all ages happy for hours.

The front porch is perfect for people watching, and Harry Truman's Little White House is right next door. Coffee on the porch is practically de rigueur most mornings -- before your bike off to a freshly made breakfast at one of the many local restaurants, if you don't want to cook at home.

But this is Key West. Get outside and enjoy the weather and all the fun. Park the car and bike to all the local sites or just relax by the pool or at the beach.

1st floor of this lovely home features vaulted ceilings in the living room, dining area and kitchen. A half bath is conveniently tucked away on this main living level. The palm-bordered front porch is a great place to relax for coffee or cocktails and gets sun in the morning and shade after noon; perfect.

2nd floor has a king bedroom, private balcony and ensuite bath. A washer/dryer is hidden away in a closet.

3rd floor has twin beds that easily convert to a king and an ensuite bath.

Private swimming pool for tenant use only is across the street.

Two bikes provided, so park the car in the included parking space and bike it!

About Marge Holtz

We are retired, frequent world travelers and lived in the Washington, DC, area for more than 30 years but are now full tome Key West residents. We like interesting, fun, active pursuits but sometimes just want to put our feet up and relax with a glass of wine and watch a great old or new movie.

Marge Holtz purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Marge Holtz chose Key West

We had been visiting Key West for more than ten years and stayed in a Foundry unit in 2012. That did it; we wanted one, and we were fortunate when a unit came on the market. The location is perfect. We can walk to dinner and drinks and never touch a car or a bike.

What makes this townhome unique

Truman Annex is unique. It is a beautiful, elegant area that is quiet but not stodgy. The gated community is closely monitored by on-site security guards, and late night revelers cannot wander through the area, yet it is close to all the fun on Duval Street and the waterfront. What more could you ask for?

Amazing stay in the Truman Annex!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this property! Very clean and well maintained. The beds are super comfortable. The location is perfect! We walked to Mallory Square every morning to enjoy the peaceful ocean views with the chickens, and walked to Mallory Square every evening to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets with the colorful tourists. We were a short walk to all of the action on Duval, but also tucked nicely away in the quiet of the Annex. The owners are extremely nice and accommodating. We highly recommend Alegre for your Key West adventure!!! We can't wait to go back!

Very Special

  • 5 of 5

Alegre was special and the greeting goodies made us feel special. We had only one, repeat one, minor problem (internet) and it was fixed in less than an hour. The place is special, area is special, and hostesses and hosts were special. Great time and many mahalos.

Great location. Responsive owner. Clean and neat.

  • 5 of 5

Unit was well equipped with everything you need for your stay. Bikes were a huge bonus. The Annex is the nicest place in Key West. Beds were comfy. Perfect for two couples to split. Had some rowdy neighbors which is not typical thus only 4 stars. Owner assured me it would be addressed. Great experience. Would rent again.
