About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 920 Sq. Ft. 2nd Floor Condo Overlooking Pool

The Complex

The Truman Annex is truly one of a kind in Key West. It is a gated community with impeccably kept grounds. The Shipyard section has its own, newly renovated heated pool with everything you need to work on your tan. Although you are only 2 blocks from Duval St. you will be amazed at how quiet it is.

The Condo

Come and stay in a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 full-bath condo overlooking the pool. Large great room with cathedral ceiling gives it that open, airy feeling with lots of windows and light. No claustrophobia here. The condo has French Doors that open up to a oversized deck with a retractable awning that overlooks the pool. This place is immaculate with a totally equipped kitchen (including juicer and blender), bedding, linens, towels including beach towels and chairs. Everything you need for a great vacation. Some of the extras for your staying pleasure include a parking spot right in front, 2 bicycles for your use, washer/dryer along with information on of all Karen’s favorite places to go in Key West, including where a lot of the locals hang out.

The Location

We are right on the corner of Thomas and Southard St., two blocks from all the action of Duval St. The Green Parrot (where the locals go to listen to music) is a block away. Mallory Square and the spectacular sunsets are a short 5 block walk. If you like the beach, Ft Zach State Park and South Beach are both 5-minute bike rides. For breakfast, it’s Blue heaven, one block away, with the famous Lobster Eggs Benedict. This is absolutely the perfect location to enjoy all Key West has to offer.

About Karen Craig

Kevin and I have been in Buffalo, NY for over 28 years. We met at Syracuse University, raised our three boys and hey! it's Key West, not Buffalo!

We love the casual, easy going lifestyle in Paradise and we know you will, too!

Karen Craig purchased this condo in 2013

Why Karen Craig chose Old Town

The best location in Key West - it's a one of a kind condo. Larger than most other units in Shipyard. You can also visit our other property VRBO 871608 located 100 yards from this one.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is a very different, unique design in Shipyard. The cathedral ceiling, the ample size, the view from the balcony, to name a few...we know our family and future guests will find their own magic here!

A well equipped clean apartment close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The apartment was beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped with lots of unexpected extras: loads of towels, snorkel, beach chairs, kitchen stuff.

It was close to all Key West had to offer and we walked a lot of places from there,

Great local information in the apartment to help you find your way around the area.

Just what we needed (anniversary)

  • 5 of 5

First of all let me say that Karen and Kevin are the best hosts and landlords you could have. Not only only do they go out of there way to accommodate us, but are to of the friendliest folks you will meet. Take their advice on where to eat and hang out they are spot on. The condo was spotless, well furnished and very short walk to pool. The pool was great and we had a ball relaxing and hanging out. Thanks Karen and Kevin for making our trip to Key West great. We will be back!!

Paradise at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

You've come of age when you can spend your winters in Florida. This is the place to do just that! Everything you need is a few steps to a few blocks away. Relax on the deck and do nothing or step down to the pool and socialize with others that are doing the same thing.

Karen and Kevin are the utmost hosts. Their condo is equipt with everything you need. The master bedroom and bath are sizable and comfortable. The kitchen has everything including the blender for Margaritas and Pina Coladas. The loft is best for the younger set for the ladder climb, but don't let that get in the way. The space and beds are very comfortable.

The living area is large for hosting guests and relaxing for a night of TV. Thanks again to Karen and Kevin for a wonderful winter rental!

Great Condo with great location = FUN

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our four sons down for the week of Christmas and FUN! Our sons are all in their 20's.

We/they went parasailing, sightseeing, bar hopping on canal street, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, and deep sea fishing!! We walked everywhere. We did not have a car. We absolutely had a blast! The condo's living space worked for us. The deck is nice and the family room/living area was great. The kitchen worked. It didn't work with three cooks, though…. Worked well with one to max two. The master bedroom was small but nice with a king bed and a master bath. The loft with its 3 beds worked and the sleeper couch was comfy. The pool is in front of the condo! The location of this condo is key! Everything is walking distance! Green Parrot is two blocks away!! Know if you stay here you will be glad you did!
