Imagine being just a few minutes’ walk from all of Key West’s most famous attractions, yet in the peace and solitude of Key West’s most exclusive gated community, the Truman Annex. With Duval Street just two blocks away and the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor Park right around the corner, you couldn’t hope for a more ideal location. And while you’re here, your home away from home will have every luxury and convenience you might want. 'Avalynn House' has just been completely renovated, and has been meticulously furnished to a very high standard, with many one-of-a-kind pieces. Original Artwork is everywhere you look.
THE LIVING AREA...
As you enter this stately home, the first things you’ll notice are the 11-foot ceilings and the light coming in through the French doors and windows. The living area is an open plan, perfect for entertaining in the tropics. There is plenty of seating for everyone in your group, and a dining table that will seat ten comfortably. The 55-inch flat screen TV is visible from any place in the entire living area. The gourmet kitchen with its large central island and bar has been equipped with everything an ambitious chef would want to prepare that very special meal. Outside, there is a very spacious porch facing the pool, and a separate dining area under a gazebo.
THE LAGOON POOL & THE BEACH DOWN THE BLOCK...
The lagoon style pool is quite special, with two waterfalls and massaging jets built into the walls. The entire area has been lushly landscaped, providing you with the privacy you would want. And if you need to feel some sand between you toes, the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor Park is just a short walk away.
The first bedroom is on the main floor, with a queen bed, flat screen TV and a half bath in the hall. On the second level you’ll find the second bedroom with two twin beds and flat screen TV. The third bedroom on the second level has a queen bed and flat screen TV. These two bedrooms share a hall bath. The first of two master suites is also on the second level, with a king bed, large flat screen TV, private balcony and spacious en-suite bathroom.

We stayed at the Avalynn house with our entire family, in-laws and all, for the Thanksgiving holiday. The home was so incredible and actually had something for everyone. The pool was just the perfect size for the kids and the living area/kitchen provided the perfect setting for gathering to either watch TV or just eat and enjoy some cocktails. The bedrooms were all far enough away from the public areas and provided great privacy. Additionally, the home was beautifully appointed. We had a couple of minor issues which was to be expected, but Shel from Last Key Realty was UNBELIEVBLE! What a guy. If there was an issue it was resolved immediately and he was always around to just make sure we were all happy and having a great time. I can't decide if I liked the house or the service Shel provided more!!!! I WILL be back and I WILL rent from Last Key again. We all had an amazing time and appreciated the extra special service.
I have been coming to key west every January since 1999.this home is the greatest I have stayed in.from Shel the concierge to the layout of the home and grounds and no loving roosters to wake you at 4:30 am this is as close to perfect as you will find.enjoy !
This was our first time in Key West. The location of the house has to advantages. First, the Truman Annex is a gem of a spot: quiet but picturesque. Second, you are walking distance to everything on Duval Street. We rented a car but didn't use it much at all. Regarding the house, it has 5 very nice bedrooms. (In my experience, the 5 bed properties are usually 4 beds, with one sub-par bedroom--not at this house.) We enjoyed the back patio for relaxing and eating. The pool is small but fun for the little kids to play in. The Fort Zach State Park is nearby and we went their daily for the beach. All in all, a great time and the house was everything we needed--comfortable, nicely appointed, and well located. Last but definitely not least, we relied heavily on Shel Segel, the concierge, for advice and recommendations. He was VERY responsive to all my requests, which included printing things out for me at his office and delivering packages we sent there as well. He was great.
We had a wonderful week long celebration in this superbly decorated home. The service was impeccable and the accommodations were first class.
We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. For my wife and I and our friends that traveled and stayed with us this property was perfect. Having visited Key West many times we know location is important and this house couldn't be located any better, just two blocks off Duval St. and in a quiet gated community. Shel recommended renting bicycles for out stay, our rental vehicle stayed parked the entire week, that was a great bit of advice.
The home was very well maintained and clean. The photos of the home were very accurate and that's exactly the way the home looked when we checked in. The pool area was really nice and was enjoyed everyday. We actually had our renewing of our wedding vows ceremony including eleven friends right in front of the pool and it's waterfall feature. After the ceremony we had a private chef and his assistant prepare a fantastic dinner for our group. The chef had plenty of room to work in the large kitchen area and the experience will be remembered for a long time by everyone.
Shel greeted us upon our arrival giving us the walk through and besides the bicycle rental suggestion, he pointed out several restaurants and the ones we tried were really nice. Latitudes restaurant on Sunset Key was nice and Blue Heaven was also good for brunch or dinner along with several others that we tried. We also used Danger Charters for a sunset/wine tasting cruise as well as a day trip that turned out to be one of the best we've ever experienced.
I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family, I couldn't imagine anyone not enjoying this home, it's the quintessential Key West tropical paradise home and with Shel and his advise,perfect.
Fare Thee Well
From the moment we stepped off the plane, Shel called me on my cell to welcome us. The house was just as described, their attention to detail was meticulous. I was there with my four children and they loved the tropical pool with waterfall and lush palm trees. It was so nice to have a home with tv's in every room, a full kitchen to cook in and washer and dryer. The nights were balmy and probably my favorite time to sit outside by the pool on the comfortable lounges with a glass of wine. Being in a gated community made me feel safe and comfortable. The proximity to many favorite local eateries and shops was extremely convenient. We will definitely return for another week real soon!
The house was beautiful and very comfortable and spacious for a family of 6 plus a 10 month old. The pool was very inviting and refreshing. The patio was relaxing and perfect for hanging out. Overall the house was just what our family needed for our vacation. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax on our vacation. The main floor was perfect for family time and the rest of the house allowed everyone to have their own space. We spent most of our time outside on the patio and pool area. The location is perfect for walking to ducal street and shopping. Would definitely stay here again! Shel greeted us and did a fantastic job as the property manager and telling us about the house and Key West!
