Guestbook comments from the owner
Check in and out was simple, the owners and rental company are a pleasure to deal with. The apartment was spotless, the amenities are great - beach chairs and towels on-site. The apartment is simply, but beautifully furnished - free wifi, cable etc. great. Walking distance to everything, whilst being tranquil and quiet. Pool was being refurbished so had to share a pool with another condo - did lead to a little over crowding. All in all a fabulous stay - Thank you.

We've traveled a lot, always looking for that special place that had everything we were looking for: Tropical climate, Adventure activities, Night life, Beaches, history, beautiful homes and surroundings, and easy to get to. We found it all in Key West, and knew this was a place we could come back to again & again.

Steve (Owner) purchased this condo in 2008

We had been to Key West several times and stayed all over the island. But when we visited the shipyard condos in the Truman Annex, we knew this was the perfect spot. No more driving and searching for parking places, now we can walk or bike to everywhere we want to go -- activities, beaches, night life, exploring history, or just sit quietly doing nothing.

Our home has a floor plan that is shared with only 2 other units in the Shipyard -- with these large porches front and rear. Both bedrooms have french doors that open onto the porch, and the living area has two more, that flood our home with natural light. We've tried to stock our place with everything we (and you too) would need for week in paradise. And we have very professional and attentive property managers who are as concerned as we are that your stay is relaxed and trouble free.

EASY, COMFY & RELAXING FOR A YOUNG FAMILY

Easy, Comfy & Relaxing for a Young Family
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Steve and Karla's in Mar '11 and had a wonderful time. We have 2 young children and everything about the apt made our vacation easy breezy. The layout is great and makes napping kids easy while parents relax on the balconies with a drink. Everything else in the apt has been well thought out and it has everything you need from the basics to beach towels to corkscrews and colanders (and a washer/dryer)! The location is fantastic and so convenient to pop down to Blue Heaven or the French crepe place for breakfast and then to the beach or pool.
The only downside is the attitudes of the older residents when at the pool. They were definitely NOT pleased to have children sharing the pool. We never heard a complaint directly but you got the sense they would rather not have kids there...luckily we weren't the only ones with kids so they would usually just exit the pool as soon as they saw kids coming (and mutter under their breathe). Other than that it was glorious and we're already planning a trip back. Thanks again Steve and Karla

GREAT TIME, GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Steve and Karla for creating a home away from home. The condo has everything you need for a relaxing vacation, and is very clean and tidy. It's great to sit and relax on the front porch or on the sectional inside. The kitchen has everything you need, the grill makes cooking quick and easy, and the washer and dryer is a great plus. There's even beach chairs and pool toys! It's minutes from Duvall St, Fort Zachary Beach, and Bahama Village-which has some great restaurants!

DOUBLE BEDS, NOT QUEEN

  • 3 of 5
This condo has a great location, close to Duval Street as well as Ft. Zachary Taylor Beach. It's small, but packed with nice amenities, including a washer/dryer, beach towels and beach chairs. However, I was unhappy to find that the queen beds promised on this listing are actually doubles. This would have been a no-go for us, so I was a bit frustrated. Getting a good night sleep is important on vacation and crowding in a small bed didn't help. Also, the kitchen needs some attention. The tea kettle wasn't usable because it had rusted out, and some basics were missing, such as a pitcher with a functioning lid and a good nonstick pan. Since we traveled with teens, it also would have been nice to have a video game console, which we usually encounter in other rentals.

Owner's Response: Thank you Mara for letting us know about the kitchen supplies. We have ordered two new non-stick pans, a new stainless tea kettle, and new pitchers for our guests to use. We try to present a fully-stocked kitchen and are sorry we did not meet your expectations. However, we are confused over the comments about the bed sizes. We bought the two queen mattress and box spring sets four years ago, and have supplied them with new queen bedding ever since. One mattress is a pillow-top and the other plain. We did this purposely because some guests do not like pillow-tops.

EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK FOR.....

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a great stay at Shipyard Treasure in Key West. The condo was everything you could ask for.....great location, beautifully decorated & immaculately clean. What you read in the description and see in the pictures is true....This is an outstanding place and Steve and Karla have thoughtfully taken care of their guests needs. This was our first visit to Key West and we were extremely happy with our choice of accommodations. Lida of At Home in Key West Management Co. was also very attentive, courteous & helpful with a few questions we had about Key West.

We are looking forward to returning again and will definitely stay at Shipyard Treasure. Thank you, Steve and Karla, for sharing your beautiful home!

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from our wonderful vacation in Key West. It was our first time visiting, and I did lots of research on where to stay prior to our departure. We all know how important it is to stay somewhere clean and nice on vacation, and being a Realtor myself, I'm extremely picky. Well, if you are traveling to Key West, you NEED to stay here. What a beautiful place! What you see in the pictures, is exactly what you get. Even though we rented a car because we drove down from Miami, a car is absolutely not necessary. Everthing that you could possibly want is within walking distance. The condo was extremely clean, beautifully updated and had everything we could possibly need. The complex was surprisingly quiet (because it is so close to everything) and we really enjoyed the private balconies. BUT, all you need to do is walk one block up, and you are in the middle of it all. Libby from the Management company was a pleasure to deal with during the standard conversations about the lease, etc....We will definately be back, it was worth every penny! Thanks to the owners Steve and his wife for sharing their special paradise!

Closer to Havanna than we are to Miami, Key West is the Southernmost point in the continental United States. Only 4 miles by 2 miles, the island is packed with tourist activities and calm retreats. Our home is located in the Old Town historic district where you can see beautiful Victorian mansions blend with 'conch' cottages. Come for the fishing, scuba diving, and beaches, and stay for the night life, nightly sunset celebration, and of course the infamous Fantasy Fest week in October.

Walk 10 minutes to the shaded beach at Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park. Or walk 1 minute to our heated and cooled pool. Walk two blocks to Ernest Hemingway's home, two blocks to famous Duval St, and 8 minutes to Mallory Square (nightly sunset celebration).

Our street address is 208 Southard St, Key West. Park your car in our reserved, off-street space, and forget about it for the rest of your stay.
