About the property

The Jewel of Shipyard Annex in Truman Annex

We hope you will enjoy this home where Ernest Hemingway and Jimmy Buffet memorabilia welcome you into the abode our first guest affectionately called “The Writer's Retreat'.

This two bedroom, one bath condo with bleached grey hardwood flooring throughout is highlighted by a massive 65 inch Plasma TV loaded with thousands of movies at your fingertips. Relax on the designer furniture while enjoying the full collection of Hemingway's books or lose yourself in The Master Bedroom retreat which has been luxuriously decorated with 1000 thread count bedding on the Romantic Canopy Bed with French doors leading out to a spacious rear patio overlooking the pool.

The guest bedroom has two twin upgraded pillow top beds that can be converted to a King bed to accommodate a family or two couples. The King is stocked with a very thick down padding and luscious linens for maximum comfort. Enjoy the sounds of the keys or music of Buffet as the guest bedroom is decorated in tribute to crooner and the island lifestyle detailed in framed sheet music.

If staying in for the evening or fixing breakfast or lunch have fun in the 1950’s themed state of the art kitchen equipped with an imported European SMEG Fridge and Stainless Appliances. Likewise, the bathroom has been decorated in an art deco style typical of an earlier time in the Keys.

The front Family room area has features a queen sleeper sofa bed with a down pad and bedding for extra sleeping space. All pillows and bedding are down and of high quality in order to provide maximum comfort on your stay. Quite simply, we designed this home to fit in with the Keys lifestyle. It is bright, open and lends itself to a vibe which we hope catapults you to a great stay in our beloved Keys.

About Jenny Blaylock

This home is managed by Simplicity Vacation Property Management. The home is owned by a family that loves to vacation in warm spots and has enjoyed Key West for many years. They loved the VRBO approach, but strive to offer a personable experience to our guests. In furtherance of this belief, they took great strides to decorate the home in such a way as to make it part of the total vacation experience. They hope when looking back on your vacation, the house will feature prominently in your memories and live on in spirit.

Jenny Blaylock purchased this condo in 2013

Why Jenny Blaylock chose Old Town

This property is a smaller property, but is located in the nicest area of Key West. We believe you will find it has been decorated impeccably and is designed with vacationers in mind with the installation of items such as closet organizers to avoid crowding the rooms with unnecessary furniture. It is a clean and above all else fun place to stay as a family or as a couple's get away.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit has a parking spot right in front of the front door and the back of our unit overlooks the pool area which is a gorgeous view. When comparing units available we found this particular unit to have a superior location within Shipyard as several overlook a parking lot or are in view of other unit's yards.

Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

We arrived to a text that cable was out and they would come Tuesday to fix, cable company was a no show, rescheduled for Friday. Friday came and nothing not even a text back from Jenny. Saturday was a tropical storm with nothing to watch. Netflix was also not working. There is no patio furniture other than 1 broken plastic chair so enjoying the scenery is not an option . Designer livingroom furniture is stained and dirty. I covered them with sheets and pillow cases. Cold water dripped in bathroom sink had to shut off underneath. And it would have been nice to have wine glasses.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed several places in Key West and this place was hands down the best place. The condo is furnished with updated decor, comfotable beds and bedding. The location is the best in Key West. We can't wait to book again next year. Booking was flawless and Jenny was a great help with any questions.

A Great Spot in the Keys!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for our first time in the Keys and I have to say it more than met our best expectations! It was in a prime location so that nothing was more than a few blocks away and still managed to be very quiet at night. The retreat itself was exactly as the pictures showed and very well maintained. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in visiting the Keys.

Perfect Place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We came for the Hemingway contest and this was our first time in Key West. The condo was wonderful. It was the perfect location to get to everything we wanted to see and do. The pool was awesome. I would not want to stay anywhere without a pool. Everything was clean and well maintained. We will definitely be returning!
