About the property

Newly redecorated and appointed with a modern tropical flare including a comfortable pull out sofa for guests.

Two courtesy bikes provided for your enjoyment! New flat screen TV, high speed Wifi and unlimited movies with free Netflix!

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 Key West

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.

Loved our Truman Annex "home"!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated one-bedroom unit with lovely artwork throughout. This first-floor unit is also a corner unit, so any noise was limited to the upstairs neighbors. If you've ever stayed in the Truman Annex, you already know this is an ideal location for walking about the area. Its nearness to Fort Zachary Taylor's beaches and picnic area is also a plus.

The unit we stayed in was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was convenient. The washer was hard to understand and use at first because it had the same dials as the above dryer. Also the girls bike that was there to use was in very bad shape and the chain came off every time we tried to use it. The property owner was very nice and very responsive to any questions we had. Great place!

Great location! Awesome Truman Annex condo!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here over the Thanksgiving week and it was perfect. Of course this location is central to the best spots in Key West (Fort Zach, Duval, Blue Heaven and Santiagos), but this particular unit was my favorite in the annex so far. It was completely stocked with everything you'd need from paper towels to beach towels. And also included two bikes - which were in great shaped so I biked everywhere. You can easily skip a rental car when staying here. The rental manager was excellent to deal with, and although I didn't need anything from her, she checked in just to be sure I was set and let me know she's available if I needed anything at all. The unit itself is exactly as advertised - beautiful, clean, with a great outdoor area. I work while on vacation and the wifi was great!

Great time in Key West

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the shipyard condos at Truman Annex before and were very happy with the extra space this condo provided as the 2nd bedroom had been removed opening up the living space. The porch area had enough foliage to provide a sense of privacy. The condo had a lot of natural light and amenities like the washer and dryer that allow travelers to travel light. We would certainly recommend this unit to our friends and stay in this condo again.

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in a nice, well taken care of, convenient, and quiet community. The condo is cute and well-stocked. It was exactly what we were hoping for.

We found the property managers to be kind and accommodating. We were delayed in our trip by Hurricane Matthew and the property managers worked with us to ensure a pleasant and stress free vacation.
