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 Old Town

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?

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful vacation here in Key West. No car. Walked just a couple blocks to restaurants and Duval Street. Bicycled to the beach. Bikes included with the rental. Our three adult children joined us midweek and Marge even provided bikes for them. Marge is a great host and everything we needed was included with the property.

Fantastic place in the perfect location. Already booked a return!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i stayed for the month of February to escape the NJ winter. The Alegre instantly felt like home. It is bright and colorful, with most of the artwork made by Marge, the owner (it's reassuring to know that the owner is nearby--she is super sweet and wants to be sure you enjoy your stay). Living room couch is super comfortable and great for relaxing in front of the big tv on a quiet night. The front porch is in the shade by afternoon with all the beautiful palm trees and is perfect for a late afternoon cocktail. We cooked most breakfasts and many other meals in the well appointed kitchen. The spacious master bedroom has it's own small desk that was more than adequate for use on a working vacation. Everything is clean, tidy, and well maintained. Our daughters visited during our stay and raved about their bedroom.

There is absolutely no need for a car. 2 bicycles come with the Alegre and they are the best way to get around. Anywhere you'd want to go is either in walking distance or an easy bike ride away. The pool is across the street, the beach at Fort Zach is about 1 mile away, Mallory dock is a short walk. Truman Annex looks like a postcard, with lush green landscaping and soaring palm trees lining the streets. After spending a night in town, walking through the locked gates is like going through a portal from the frenzy of Duval St. to a tranquil walk back to your door.

We loved the Alegre so much that i held off posting this review until i had a chance to secure my dates for next year's stay. i really can't imagine anyone not loving this place.

Would love to come back!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Alegre from 12/30 through 1/6 with my boyfriend and our 2 best friends. We headed south to celebrate the New Year in Key West, hoping for warmth and sunshine and a break from the Philly winter. Unfortunately the chilly and gloomy weather left a lot to be desired BUT our home away from home in the Truman Annex was absolutely perfect: It was clean, spacious and beautiful AND in walking distance to everything Key West has to offer! The living room and bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen contained everything we could have possibly needed, although we mostly reheated pizza and made coffee :) The pool was located just across the street and had the weather been warmer we certainly would have enjoyed that on a daily basis. We felt safe and secure and truly at home at the Alegre. Marge was a wonderful hostess and we actually met her husband as we were checking out (I hope he's feeling better!). I would definitely love to visit Key West and stay at the Alegre again :)
