Greetings from Paradise, where the temperature is 82 degrees, water temperature 80, and the wind SE at 10, just enough breeze to blow sand in my margarita.
'Margarita Villas' are located in historic Old Town in a beautiful, very private gated compound that has won awards as the best development in Florida. (And yes it does have a blender).
It’s just off Duval Street, with its bustling shops and nightlife; yet quiet and private. Fort Zachary Taylor on the south side of the property has one of our most picturesque beaches located among the tall whispering pines of the uplands; the view of the reef and the turquoise waters is magnificent.
The heated pool is conveniently located nearby so you are never far from a refreshing dip or just 'conching out' in the sun.
There are two bedrooms and one baths; the master bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed, the other, two twins. French doors in the living room open onto the garden deck for outdoor dining or to catch the tropical breezes. Outdoor porch furniture on the deck.
The kitchen is completely equipped (including the mandatory BLENDER).
Fully air-conditioned, all rooms have tropical ceiling fans and all linens are provided. There is off street parking for one car.
PS: Did I mention that we have a BLENDER?

About Mike Wernicoff
My name is Michael Wernicoff. I grew up in Ocean City, NJ windsurfing the beaches and sailing the back bays. In 1977, when I was 10 years old, we loaded up our car and with our Hobie Cat sailboat in tow; we set off for our first family trip to the Florida Keys. The warm breeze and the turquoise waters brought us back every school vacation. First, we rented a small house for a week, The next year a condo for two weeks. A few years later we bought our first home which we rented out between stays ... and Vacation Rentals in Key West was born. After college I got a 'real job', but warm waters and balmy breezes were calling, so I set off to teach windsurfing. First, in Key West, at Smathers Beach then in the Turks and Caicos Islands, St. Lucia and Mexico. Eventually moving back to Key West. Now we have two little girls who love the emerald waters as much as we do. When the lovely gated community in the Truman Annex was being built, we knew that it was going to be the best rental location in town and we were right! We now have a wonderful selection of vacation homes and condos to rent, so take a look. I would love the opportunity to help create a great vacation experience for you and your family, and to share with you, the Key West that my family and I fell in love with when I was ten and continue to enjoy today. 'Your blender is waiting' Thank You Mike Michael Wernicoff

Our stay at the Truman Annex was fantastic. The condo is in a gated community, unit is clean, quiet & well maintained. Neighbors are very friendly and the owner is a super guy (drove us to the airport, including a little tour).
The complex is within blocks of everything you've ever desired in Key West; bars where locals hang, restaurants, coffee houses, mom & pop stores, tourist shops & a small beach. We rented a scooter for the 10 days but found it wasn't really needed (maybe a day or two), everything is so close & you'll want to walk anyway.
We would stay here again in a minute, see you next year.
Wonderful vacation, this is the area to stay. Centrally located next to food market, liquor stores, restaurants , Mallory square, Duval St. The pool was heated and it is nestled in a gated community with quiet streets. The condo itself is clean, update with all modern amenities. The back porch was large for entertaining. Hoping to make it a yearly trip .
Minnesota winter refugees
My wife and I along with our 2 adult children and our sons girlfriend spent new years week here. Very clean and quiet, while onlyl a short walk or bike ride to Duvall st, Mallory square, Or ft. Zachary beach. The pool was clean and we'll maintained as well as the rest of the property. The owners couldn't have been more hospitable, even calling me after our flight landed to see if we needed to be picked up from the Key West airport.(We flew into Miami and drove down.) Owner also checked in during our stay to see if we needed anything, We highly recommend this property!
Thank you for your review and thank you for staying with us! We hope to see you again next year!!!
This is a great place
We stayed at this condo for 7 nights the condo was clean and well maintained. The beds are comfy and there was plenty of towels The location is great with a pool just a short walk away out the back gate, The condo is about middle of and 2 blocks from Duval st. where you will find bars, restaurants and shopping, etc. and close to beaches and state park . Communication with the family owned renters was easy and all my questions were answered, The owner called to see if we need anything the day before arrival which was great. I would highly recommend this rental and would think that all this families rentals are as nice. We will be back soon to stay again.
Thank you for the review. See you next year.
A Perfect Week in Key West
Angie and I have been coming to Key West for the last two years to enjoy the weather and and the atmosphere of an exciting city. We have flown into KW and wanted a condo located where we did not have to rent a car. Our difficulty has been finding a relaxing place to stay that is close to Duval Street, to the beautiful beach at Fort Zachary Taylor, to restaurants, shopping and also the restful side of KW.
For us, we have found the perfect place to stay. The Hemingway Cottage in the Shipyard Condos area of the historic Truman Annex met all of our needs and then some. Tevis Wernicoff provided a comfortable and exceptionally clean 2B/1B condo highlighted with Hemmingway memorabilia throughout. The ground floor condo was comfortable and included a shaded patio that we particularly enjoyed for reading and relaxing. The two sets of patio doors on to this private patio allows for a breeze that would remind you of a cottage in the tropics. While we primarily dined out, the kitchen was outfitted for cooking and dining in.
I would again emphasize how clean it was.
We have made plans to return to Key West again next year and hope to stay in the Hemingway Cottage again.
Everything was Great!
We have stayed in Key West for many years and have rented vacation homes on many of our trips. This trip was especially important as my daughter was getting married at Ft. Taylor State park. Everything was great ! we arrived late at night and the arrival instructions were clear and we had no problems after a long day of travel. Our condo was very clean and comfortable and quiet. We loved sitting on the deck and enjoying our morning coffee. We will be back next year for sure.
Park your car and walk to everything.
