This Beautiful one bedroom one bathroom condo was formerly a two bedroom opened up to create a spacious living area. The same square footage as a 2 bedroom. The condo is fully furnished and perfectly located in the Truman Annex, a gated community of private homes and condos within two blocks of Duval Street and Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park (best beach in Key West). This First Floor condo is a part of the Shipyard complex and is located in a very secluded area. The decks and gardens are totally private with no condos behind it so no one will be glaring over or down at you. Few condos can offer this privacy in the Annex.
Great for walking, running, bicycling, or any other outdoor activity. Off street secure parking provided on the grounds. There is a queen-size bed in the bedroom and a very comfortable queen-size sofabed in the main living area. Beautiful hardwood floors throughout.

About Paola Forman
In 1992, then Tampa, FL residents Rod and Ruth made their first trip to Key West and began what is now a 23-year love affair with the island. Even after moving back home to Kentucky, they continued to visit Key West nearly every year, often twice a year, taking advantage of the fine restaurants, scuba diving opportunities and the laid-back atmosphere. Throughout the years, they introduced friends and extended family to Key West, even recently bringing one of their children, their teenage son, along for a scuba diving adventure. It has been a dream of theirs for years to own a little bit of paradise in Old Town and with each trip to the island, they would make time to walk around and just to “look” for the right property. After considering many different areas and types of properties, it only made sense that The Shipyard Truman Annex was their new home. The location, amenities and secludedness of this particular condo were what they had been searching for all those years. It is close to the beach, the prefect place to begin your bike tour of the island, a short jaunt to well-loved eateries and within walking distance of Duvall Street, Mallory Square and the SounthernMost Point. Though close to these popular amenities, this condo gives guests the sense that they are nowhere near these high-energy lively places. This lovely one-bedroom, first floor home has double walk-out french doors that lead to one of the largest and most-secluded back decks in the Annex. Begin your morning here relaxing with a cup of coffee. Afterwards, head over to the beach or spend the day soaking up rays by the pool. Maybe find your way over to Duvall Street to shop, or grab a bike and explore the island. Continue your day with a memorable meal. Either cook here at home with the fully-equipped kitchen or head out to some of the best restaurants you will ever encounter. If food is your passion, Key West is your destination. Finally, end your evening at Mallory Square.

Why Paola Forman chose Old Town
One of our favorite things about coming to the condo is the location. It is only two blocks from all the action of Duval Street. A perfect day is waking up, relaxing on the back deck, grabbing a late breakfast, walking to Duval Street, riding a bike to the beach, having lunch overlooking the water, taking a mid-afternoon nap by the pool, going for a afternoon bike ride, then heading out to Mallory Square for the sunset, and finally, a great dinner somewhere in town. The great thing about Key West is that you can find anything you are looking for whether it’s a laid back, relaxing vacation or the liveliness and activity you can be a part of on Duval Street.
What makes this Condo unique
Since purchasing the condo, we are starting on a redecorating plan. The appliances are new and the floors have been recently stripped. What impressed us with this condo was that the porch and backyard are one of the most private in the shipyard. The sitting area in the condo is twice as big as most of the other homes. Why waste space on a second bedroom if you don’t need it, and there is currently a pull out couch if you do.

The place was clean, roomy.
Very clean, had plenty of room for the 2 of us, nice back deck. The 2 bikes got a lot of use, so did the frig! A/C worked well, quite not a window rattler. We enjoyed the Ship Yard pool and grounds, you could hear the darn roosters in the morning faintly but not loud enough to make you. Easy walk into Old Town and easy bike ride to Fort Zach. Our only gripe would be no backpack beach chairs, there are 'bag' chairs which we tired but couldn't stand sitting in @ Fort Zach (no comfort to sit and read a book in the shade or watch the world go by). We really enjoyed the location and relaxing the retanl provided. YES, we would re-book. Paloa was very help with our stay. Happy Happy Happy
Great location, bikes and everything you need!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at at this condo. We didn’t need a car since we were central to everywhere we wanted to go. We biked to Fort Zachary with our beach chairs on our backs and towels that were all provided in the unit. Bathroom and kitchen were a little dated, but that didn’t detract from all the nice amenities: bikes in great condition, unit was very clean, bed and pillows comfortable and towels thick and soft.
Would definitely book this unit again. landlord was very accommodating, checking in to make sure everything was in order.
Property as advertised! 😄😄
Great location and amenities.
Feels like home
Everything you need is here! Such a comfortable space and close to everything but tucked away and quiet. Very clean and extremely responsive host. The best!
Bathroom needs an upgrade and the kitchen could also be remodeled
Stay like a resident instead of a tourist
Excellent location. Clean, comfortable condo with soft bed and plenty of living space. Highly recommended!
