The Truman Annex, a beautiful gated community that borders Old Town, started its life as a U.S. Navy base.

Little remains today of the utilitarian military housing. In the 1990's, a private developer transformed 100 acres into a secluded enclave of single family homes, condominiums and town houses. The beautifully designed neighborhood combines new construction and renovated officers’ housing.

Ubiquitous white Key West fences line the wide streets with their meticulous landscaping and set-back homes. Truman Annex, which takes its name from former U.S. President Harry Truman. Truman spent a significant amount of time at the “Little White House” during his presidency. Today, the Truman home is open to the public and the centerpiece of Truman Annex.

Truman Annex, which is walking distance to Fort Zachary State Park and its lovely beaches, is the popular choice for snowbirds and second-home owners seeking privacy, Key West ambiance and proximity to the best that Old Town offers.

Best features: Private, gated community. Close to beaches and state park, as well as Old Town’s bustling restaurants and nightlife.

Getting around: Great for walking and biking. Many homes are blessed with private drives.

Street boundaries: Whitehead on the east; Angela to the south; Atlantic Ocean on the west and Front Street on the north.

This property has a special license that allows it to be rented by the calendar month as a MONTHLY RENTAL OR as a WEEKLY RENTAL with a mandatory 7 night minimum stay.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location, located just 2 to 4 blocks from Mallory Square and my favorite bars on Duvall Street. Air conditioner needs service or an upgrade, it ran continuously and the temperature was always a couple of degrees warmer than I would have liked it. Small bedrooms, kinda felt like I have more room on a cruise ship for clothing and stuff, but the beds were comfortable, 2 twins upstairs and a queen bed in the middle level.

Great unit. Best location. Went for boat races. Walk everywhere we needed to be. Two years ago, we stayed here and air broke. Booked again cause great location. Air broke twice. First night we relocated and next time broke, they fixed same day. They responded quickly to fix and took care of us. When there, they got estimate to replace so hopefully that happens because we would stay there again. If plan to book, make sure AC unit was replaced. Third floor got up to 88 degrees. Management company was great trying to fix it. This was after Hurricane so contractors busy but they got someone out there.

Owner's Response: Hi Ami, Very glad you enjoyed the stay (minus the A/C issues) and had a great time in Key West for the Boat Races. Fairwinds is a fantastic property and we feel fortunate to have it in our portfolio of available units. On the A/C, as this has been a challenge over the past couple months, we have received approval form the Owner to have the entire A/C system replaced. This is to be done over the next two weeks per our Property Manager and the company that is scheduling the replacement. Thank you again, and thank you for being understanding as we tried to correct the issue during your stay with us. We hope to see you again in the near future! HKWVR Staff and Management.

We stayed in the condo during our wedding week from May 29th - June 5th. The condo met our needs perfectly. It is in a lovely location and we love staying in Truman Annex. There were a few small issues with the TVs and then with the dishwasher but nothing that would make or break our stay. The condo was very clean and comfortable and we loved the high ceilings! We would definitely stay here again!

Overall we had a great experience in Key West and our vacation rental in the Foundry at Truman Annex was a major part of that. The location was excellent. A very quiet area within 2 blocks of all the hustle and bustle of Duval Street. The rental was generally in good shape although we did have a couple of teething problems. The staff were very responsive and so there was little to no inconvenience. We shared with another couple and the two bed two bath arrangement worked really well so that each couple had their own space. Undercover parking meant that the car didn't get too hot although we didn't use it much as everything was so close. Great booking experience and useful app added to make our stay very enjoyable. Only minor draw back was that in my opinion this particular property could do with some firmer mattresses on the beds, as they were a little soft for our liking. Will definitely return to Key West and Truman Annex.

Reviewer Comments:

Stayed for 8 nights with my parents, husband and baby boy. The townhouse was as depicted in the description and pictures. Very clean and spacious (we fit a full size crib in the 3rd floor bedroom). Location was fantastic, easily accessible to everything you needed (sites, pool, beach, restaurants, cafes, shops, grocery store, and most tourist attractions). We did not rent a car nor did we need one. Did a hop on hop off bus tour one day to get to see some of the sites further away. The property managers/owners provided all the staples you needed for the week (detergent, soap, toilet paper, etc.). The only thing that potentially could be improved were the pillows but that of course is a very personal choice. The property managers were very professional and were in constant communication with me from the day I sent in my first inquiry on the property online to the day we landed. We even exchanged text messages the day of arrival to ensure we didn't get lost. The property manager met us at the house to provide the keys and some basic information. They also were in contact with the baby furniture rental company so everything was delivered and set up before we arrived. Wifi was very stable and fast. But I don't think there was a working phone so I would suggest bringing a cell phone. The Truman Annex area is beautiful and we all felt safe walking around day or night. I would recommend this property to friends and family and would stay there again.
