Our first trip to Key West was 11 years ago and we fell in love with it. After a few visits we decided to buy a little piece of Paradise. Our kids love our 'annual family' trip. Being here makes us feel like we are in the Caribbean This family picture was taken at Christmas 2011 on our Condo front steps.

Iolanda purchased this condo in 2008

Because it is a beautiful location and within walking distance to everything and we love it so much, we have decided to share our little piece of paradise.

One of the best parts of our location is that it is within walking distance to downtown and all the restaurants, but yet far enough away to enjoy some quiet time if you choose to do so. If you are with friends or family that like to sleep in and you like to wonder, no problem, they can walk to meet you with minutes.

CROCODILE RANCH @ SHIPYARD CONDOS/TRUMAN ANNEX

  • 4 of 5
There is no doubt in my mind that the Truman Annex is the best place to stay in Key West. Further, unless your Moneybags the Shipyard Condos are the only affordable way to go in the Annex. Having said that, Crocodile Ranch is a tight space with only one bathroom so if you want to spread out this may not be for you.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare fabulous meals though. There were three of us there for Spring Break and we managed to make it work. The Washer/Dryer Combo came in handy and was used several times over the visit.

All in all, a very nice place to stay. Thank You Very Much To Our Hosts.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO BE IN PARADISE!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is the best way to vacation - all the comforts of home in one of the most spectacular spots in the country. I would return again in a heartbeat. You can walk anywhere, the beaches are heavenly. You can enjoy the liveliness of Key West, spend a peaceful day at the beach, swim in the pool, or sit quietly sipping a cocktail or cup of tea on the condo deck.

It has all the amenities, from wifi to a gas grill to a king size bed in the master. It was clean and they've brought the Key West feeling into the condo.

Go, enjoy, relax - as they say in Europe, go on "holiday". You'll be glad you did. But book soon because I for one plan on going back!

IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5
No disclaimers necessary, it was exactly as stated and shown on the posting. Iolanda was very nice and helpful.The place was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed.
Within walking distance of everything and very quite and relaxing in the evening, so while you are ultra close to the action you're not right in the craziness of Duval ;o)
I would recommend your place to anyone wanting to stay in Key West. Thanks for helping make our vacation Fantastic!!!
We will definitely do this again...

A LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay at "Crocodile Ranch" and as always everything was perfect! The condo is so cute and clean; seems to be updated a bit every time we return! The perfect size for our little vacation! Everything was just like the pictures and there was plenty of room for four adults to spread out! The back patio was like a private little oasis leading to tropical pathways to little gardens and the quiet pool. The walk to Duval is only two short blocks, we never need a car once we reach the condo. Thank you again; we'll let you know when we're ready to come back!
(FYI we have also stayed here with two children as well. The unit is very versatile; accommodating both adults and families.)
P.S. We highly recommend checking out the Butterfly Garden and breakfast at Blue Heaven!

THIS WAS AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
The place was great. The decor was very relaxing an tropical. It was clean and cozy and honestly if there wasnt sunshine and palm trees outside, we would have spent the whole time lounging indoors. The AC was great, for cooling off in, after laying by the pool all day or walking the strip. The front and back deck were perfect for a glass of wine and some people/Rooster watching. The condo was great, we loved it! The location was another A+, it was five minutes walking distance to a really cute beach that has a great view of the sunset, like something out of a fairy tale. 5 minutes in a different direction was Duval St. Which was just amazing, shopping, art, bars, clubs, restaurants, etc. are everywhere. Not to mention mallory square. We had dinner down there on the pier. They have street performers n merchants and an atmosphere that screamed exotic paradise. All in all this place was great, its appearance, its location, its pricing. We honestly didnt want to leave, but knowing we found a hidden treasure at the Truman Annex that we can come always go back to was good enough for us.

POOR PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

  • 2 of 5
This unit has several owner issues that, had there been a "Proper" property manager could've/should've been resolved by them, not by me. For 3 days the wi-fi did not work. The communication between myself and the owner was good but when he's in CT and it's Christmas....well good luck getting it fixed. There was less then 2 full cups of laundry detergent and in the past when I rented that was supplied because they were very particular of what should've been used, there was only 2 rolls of toilet paper and a half of roll of paper towels, and no tissues.

Again when I commented to the owner about the absence of "normal" supplies I was given several excuses about the "missing in action Property manager". In the welcome book, it mentions if the gas on the grille runs out...go to Home Depot and exchange it for 20 bucks. REALLY ???? Yes there were 2 tanks there (same as the number of rolls of toilet paper) and It's not likely you'd run out...but even to suggest you should replace it ... that's nuts.

The chair in the living room is in poor shape with tearing on the right arm.

Location is great but so are all the other units in the "shipyard", this was my 5th trip to KW and I'll never stay here again.

Owner's Response: I am really sorry this guest was not satisfied. I was in the middle of Management companies during this time and I explained that to him. I am surprised at the negative review as I gave this guest a discount. As supplies go, 90% of the rental units only supply start up materials, guests are responsible for anything after that. We have a guest book in our unit and the guests for the past 5 1/2 years have positive feedback. As far as the Wifi, the guests the week before had no issues so I am not sure what happened midway thru his stay. I made a last minute trip to Key West to resolve this problem and just rebooted the router and is working fine. The guest I have in there now has not had any problems. I think we are the only unit with two propane tanks and as far as I know, have never run out of propane. Again, I am truly sorry for any inconvenience this caused him. We try to do our best to keep our unit clean, comfortable and everything in working order, for not only our guests but for ourselves, as this is our little piece of paradise and I hope that our past and future guests feel the same.
