Second time's a charm in this charmer!
This was the second time we have stayed in this lovely townhouse. It is one of the very best locations in Key West. Two blocks from Duval. One block from the Green Parrot. Fort Zachary Taylor practically in the back yard. Guarded community setting. Great pool and excellent parking. Parking is tough in old Town and is a real luxury. Hemmingway home and Blue Heaven a short walk. Highly recommend this very convenient and well appointed rental townhouse. We'll be back!
This was our second year, staying at Island Bound, the home is very comfortable, with everything you need. We enjoyed our stay, so much. This home is located within walking distance to everything .
The owners, Bill and Linda , are wonderful people.
Stayed for 10 nights. This condo was comfortable and spacious. Nice decks off the living room and master bedroom. We have been staying at the Truman Annex complex (Shipyard Condos mostly) for many years. This is now one of our favorites.

2 minutes from Duval St. A short walk to Fort Zachary Taylor Park and beach. Just a block from the Green parrot and its fabulous music venue, three blocks to the famous Blue Heaven. Great access to jogging and biking. The townhouse itself was pristine, fully equipped and very comfortable. An assigned parking space for our car. Only steps away from a private pool to cool off in. Very friendly neighbors. The Hemingway house just down the street. Truman’s’ Little White House in your back yard. This unit has it all.
Fantastic Home, Close to Everything Key West Has to Offer !!
This was our first time taking our three older teen age boys to KEY's and we wanted to do something really special! We chose the home for its location and its appeal. Truman Annex is a wonderful gated community with beautiful homes and gorgeous natural gardens. This home is beautiful with tile floors down and carpet upstairs. The patio, which is surrounded by palms and other natural plants provide a private place to sit and enjoy dinner and drinks or coffee in the morning! Furnishings are very comfortable and it really was home for us for a most magical week! There really was no need for a car as you can walk to Mallory Square for Sunset, Fort Zachary for the beach; and Duvall Street with its restaurants and shopping is only a couple of blocks away. We hope to return to Key West soon and would not hesitate to stay in the same home. Linda (Ownder) was fabulous to work with a great communicator. This is truly the place to be in Key West!
Island Bound Townhome
I rented Island Bound for February of 2012 and the first two weeks of February 2013. The home itself is almost perfect with a complete kitchen, beautiful hardwood and tile floors and spacious bedrooms. Truman Annex is a perfect location in Key West, almost anyplace is walkable, and if needed there are many bike rentals shops only blocks away. The only drawback to the location is it is an end unit located on the corner of two busy streets with a very busy paperbox and much traffic right below the bedroom windows. For my purposes (as I worked during the day) it was rather loud, but it would be acceptable for a vacation
While Key West will remain my favorite vacation spot, I will no longer rent from Linda. I had many a nail biting moment the first year waiting for the keys to arrive in the mail well after my check was cashed. When I finally called the listed number, it was answered with a hostile “What?!” though happily the keys arrived before my flight. I had also booked two weeks for March 2014 (and received an email verification) but when trying to arrange an additional week for our wedding- after a considerable number of emails and almost a month before a response I was told “Sorry those weeks are booked” for March. Apparently I was booked over. There are many wonderful units in Truman Annex, and happily I have found another. My advice would be to look elsewhere if you intend on a hassle-free rental experience. It is well worth going through an agency and paying the extra $40 fee and having a clear reservation!
We are sorry about your experience of two years ago, regarding the back and forth mailing of keys for our townhouse. We have changed to a lockbox system quite a while ago. As far as our location goes, there isn't anyting we can do about it. We do however, get a lot of favorable feedback, because of the proximity to Duval Street, the closness of the pool and the convenient across the street parking in addition to our nearby private parking space (we do have a parking space). In reference to booking, we try to hold spots open as long as we can, for returning guests but sometimes it is almost impossible.
This is our only property, our advice to people who are unable to decide when or where they want to stay or how much they can afford, is to go to one of he highly reputable agencies in the area and book through them.
