Envision yourself relaxing in a beautiful wood framed conch cottage with overhead fans lazily turning below the sloping tin roof in the heart of Old Town in Key West. This is the best value in Key West as it is no cookie cutter small rental condo but a private home in the Shipyard section of the Truman Annex with its gated entrance and 24 hour security. Our Bermuda-style cottage is steps away from sunning yourself on the beach, at the pool or enjoying the excitement of Duval Street with its many award winning restaurants, unique shops, creative art galleries, lively bars and bawdy night clubs. The famed Mallory Square and the water activities are also a short walk away. And value? How about free parking. High speed internet connection and a beach pass for your entire group to the Ft Zachary Taylor State Park beach.
We also offer themed getaways for your honeymoon; anniversary; birthday or a week of romance.
We know you will enjoy our home as well as Key West. On my living room walls are paintings I have purchased in Cuba from my humanitarian and education trips to the island. The colorful and yet relaxing paint hues on the wall are from my trips to Bermuda which is why I call my vacation home 'A Touch of Bermuda in Key West'.

The Truman Annex is a former Naval base in the heart of Old Town in Key West. President Harry Truman used to vacation here so this residential complex is named after him. There is a wonderful tour available in the home he used as his summer residence. Duval Street is two blocks away. The pool is 100+ steps out my back garden gate down a pebble path. The best beach in Key West, Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park is within walking distance and I have a beach pass for your stay. The famed sunsets at Mallory Square are short walk away as are the many tourist attractions such as Hemingway House; the Aquarium and Mel Fisher's Treasure Museum. And if water sports are your thing, the snorkel, scuba and fishing trips all start at the local pier within walking distance of my cottage.
Golf: There is an 18 hole golf course in Key West which is open to the public. It's not Pebble Beach or Augusta National but you can keep your game up to snuff by playing a new course. The links are within a short drive from my cottage but alas, this is one attraction not in walking distance. Good luck in breaking par.
Other Activities: Some really fine dining at award winning restaurants. On the walls of my living room, I have a painting of the Blue Heaven restaurant, one of my very favorites. It is quintessential Key West.

I'm a semi retired guy who was in the television and marketing/public relations industry and is now a professional character actor/singer on stage mostly and I teach Marketing and Public Relations at a university in Boston, MA every Fall. My oldest daughter was married here in Key West and it's a special place for me.
I always had TAE (Truman Annex envy) when my two daughters and I were visitors and renters in Key West. I vowed I'd live here one day and when I sold my public relations firm in 1999, I bought a small two bedroom,one bath condo and later this much larger two bedroom, two bathroom cottage. I am in Key West at least six months a year and rent out my home when I am not in town.
A Touch of Bermuda in Key West is my 'friend with benefits' as everything I want to see or do is within walking or biking distance. One couldn't ask for more.
The Shipyard section of The Truman Annex is THE best place to stay. Duval Street is two blocks away and the best beach in Key West, Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park is about 800 yards in the other direction. Everything you want to see or do is within an easy walk.
