Key West House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6-8, Private Home in Truman Annex, Private Pool

A trip to Key West is like a breath of fresh air – the sounds of rustling palm trees, the scent of fragrant flowers and the smell of salt air are the rejuvenation that only the tropics can provide. This home is a breath of Key West fresh air, or “Brisa Fresca”, a timeless, beach-inspired home that seems to be straight out of the pages of Coastal Living. Each room is light and airy with those special island touches. The location of Brisa Fresca is ideal: just walk two blocks to the Duval Street favorites likes the Green Parrot and Willie T’s to enjoy some live music, or down the block to Mallory Square for entertainment and a sunset stroll. Best of all, you’ll be less than a half mile from the Fort Zachary Taylor State Park Beach for a day of snorkeling and sun.

Combine the beautiful décor of this home with the perfect location and the amenities of a private heated pool and private off-street parking, and you have the ideal spot to relax and recharge.


Entering through the carport gate off of Noah Lane, you’ll be tempted to jump right into the luxurious private pool. The pool is large by Key West standards, with plenty of room for the family to swim around with both sun and shade throughout the day.

The pool is surrounded by comfortable chaise lounges to relax in your own oasis all day. A large propane BBQ grill sits in the back yard as well. There is a full outdoor dining set for six right by the pool for a great island meal after a day of sun.


The open living plan of the first floor has a light and airy feeling and is perfect for entertaining. The living area has a plush sectional sofa that pulls out into a sleeper sofa option. There are additional comfortable chairs in the extended sitting room around a large flat screen HDTV with full cable and DVD player. The living room opens up to the fully equipped chef’s kitchen, a beautifully designed space with gourmet appliances created for those who LIVE in the kitchen (when you’re not dining at one of the amazing nearby restaurants). You’ll find lots of hidden treasures in this kitchen: from the extra bar seating for three, to the touch-top stove, to the convection microwave oven hidden in the extended kitchen island. Off the kitchen is a lovely dining area that overlooks Emma Street and seats six comfortably. In addition to these common areas, should you have a group that only needs 2 bedrooms, the third bedroom of this home can convert easily into a spacious office upon request.


The master bedroom is on the second floor, with a grand King-sized bed, flat screen TV, walk-in closet, plenty of dresser space, and private balcony overlooking the pool area. The master bathroom is en-suite, with dual sinks and a tub/shower. The second bedroom upstairs has two twin beds that convert to a King easily upon request. This bedroom also has a TV, closet, plenty of dresser space, and an en-suite bathroom with a vanity-lit mirror, tub/shower and sliding glass door. The third bedroom is on the first floor, with a Queen-sized bed that has a memory foam topper for extra comfort. The third full bathroom has a tub and shower.


Truman Annex is the most exclusive private residence community in Old Town Key West. Located just off the main drag of Duval Street, Truman Annex is an oasis of calm, quiet streets lined with palm trees and beautiful Floridian homes. Within Truman Annex, Noah Lane is famous for its quintessential island residences with Old Town charm, and “Brisa Fresca” is one of the poster homes for this scene.


Washer & Dryer, Central Heat and A/C, Ceiling Fans, Private Heated Pool, Flat Screen Cable TVs, Fully Equipped Gourmet Kitchen, Private Covered Carport, Linens and Towels provided. Interim housekeeping provided upon request. Wireless high-speed Internet access and Full Cable is included. This property will accommodate 6-8 adults. No pets permitted.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay with 6 adults and two 3 year old girls was wonderful. The home is in tip top shape with everything up to date. We had plenty of room to relax and enjoy the decks, pool, glamor kitchen, and short walk to Duval Street. The back yard deck/pool area is well maintained and very private from neighbors with very similar homes and pools. The flooring was top quality from top to bottom. The Kitchen was fully appointed with very modern appliances and every kitchen cooking tool imaginable (Emeril would have been quite happy). The kitchen extends from the front of home dinning area to the back of home family room that overlooks the sundeck patio pool area. The pool area has doulbe frech doors with plantation shutters for any look you could possibly need. I could go on about this house for an need to stay here to appreciate all that the owners have done to make it a repeat vacation spot.

Wonderful 35th Wedding Anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5

Shel met us at the property upon our arrival and showed us the entire home. He gave us great recommendations for restaurants which we used the entire week with 100% satisfaction at each location. The home was extremely clean, beautifully decorated, and very well stocked with kitchen essentials. We had asked for the pool to be heated and it was so comfortable. The location of this home in Key West was perfect for us. It was quiet and peaceful and yet close to everything in Key West. We also rented bikes through the concierge and they were delivered on time, in great condition, and picked up at the exact time we arranged for as well. We had a fabulous time and will definitely put this on our list of return destinations.

The only one thing I would point out for future renters. The two upstairs rooms were very large and very comfortable as were the attached bathrooms. The downstairs bedroom is actually a study area with a murphy bed. It has built in cabinets that allow for storing your things and was very comfortable for the other couple that joined us on the trip. It was not an issue for us at all but if you are splitting the cost among 3 couples, you may want to make sure the others know that one bedroom is considerably smaller than the other two and shares the full downstairs bath with 1st floor people. We were 3 couples and just each tried to use our own bathrooms to allow privacy for the first floor couple. Again, it had a very comfortable murphy bed and was not an issue for our group at all but I could see it being an issue for some -- especially if it were a 3 way split for costs.

Thank you, Shel. I loved meeting you and appreciate the time you took to help us with local information and familiarity with the home as well.

Six wonderful weeks in Brisa Fresca!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year spending six weeks at Brisa Fresca and are already looking forward to next year. The house is wonderful, the pool terrific and location perfect for walking to restaurants, movies and theatres in Old Town. Shel Segel, who is the Guest Service Coordinator, graciously sees to all of our needs! We strongly recommend this property.

SIx Days Was Not Nearly Enough

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better experience on our first visit to Key West. Brisa Fresca is a beautiful and comfortable house, in a quiet neighborhood, close to everything. It was impeccably maintained, perfectly clean, and well-supplied. The kitchen is sufficiently outfitted for even the most expert cook (although we couldn't resist the restaurants and ate out every night.) The pool and deck area are so spectacular that you could easily spend all your time there. Our house manager, Shel, met us at the house and not only showed us around the house, but also gave us a detailed introduction to Key West, its restaurants, and many activities. Thanks to him, we didn't need to waste any time of our short visit just getting our bearings. It was also reassuring as first timers in Key West to know that if anything had gone wrong with the house or us, Shel was only a phone call away 24/7. We also made use of the concierge service to book restaurant reservations and a awaking/snorkeling tour and to rent bicycles, which was a wonderful timesaver.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

When our group of six arrived at this beautiful home we were very pleased. The spacious house, landscape and pool were beautifully maintained, up to date and very clean! The location was ideal for walking or biking to everything Key West had to offer. Shel was there to greet us and show us around, he had even delivered our grocery requests and put them away. All of the equipment necessary for a gourmet to cook, serve and cleanup from a meal was present. We enjoyed the location very much. We rented bikes for our two week stay and rode all over Key West daily. We fished on charters recommended by the concierge in the daytime, swam and lounged by the heated pool in the afternoons. Shel's detailed recommendations for restaurants and live music venues were excellent and most evenings we stayed out late listening to music and enjoying the tropical weather. An all around perfect vacation in a perfect property!

An amazing way to spend Winter Break!

  • 5 of 5

Just perfect! I really can't say much more to sum it up. House and location - perfect! Pool - absolutely amazing! Comfortably slept 4 adults and 2 kids. So much to see and do in Key West but the house just made you want to stay by the pool and relax. Everything in the house was in great shape. Last Key Realty and Shel were great as well and made the whole process very easy. Would rent again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone who is interested.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us, we were a group of 6 and this house was the perfect size. The home is even better than in the photos, clean, perfectly decorated for Key West and the kitchen is stocked with anything you would need to cook. The heated pool was amazing and we spent most of our time outside.

Shel was great helping us arrange shipping items down before our arrival, and checking in on us throughout the stay to make sure everything was going well.

We go down every year for Christmas and this was our favorite home of all, and Shel and everyone at Last Key Realty are just great.
