About Al Metty

My wife Carol and I are retired and live in Ann Arbor Michigan during the Summer and Key West during the Winter. I am a retired CPM or Certified Property Manager and as such, understand very well that a well furnished and maintained home results in a pleasent experience. Carol and I strive to make your stay as original as possible.

Al Metty purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Al Metty chose Key West

I was visiting a friend who's parents married during WWII in Key West. It only took one visit and the second day of that visit to know that Key West was a special place and where I wanted to spend time

What makes this townhome unique

Everything is within walking distance. You get great exercise without even feeling like it. A stroll down Duval is 1 mile each way, a walk to the Historic Waterfront and strolling back can be a couple miles, walk 4 blocks to Kelly's on the way to Mallory Square for Happy Hour. The list goes on and on. I take a car but I bet I do not put 50 miles on it the entire winter unless I am going to No Name Pub on Big Pine Key.

The Plantation stay...awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The Plantation was bigger and better than the pictures showed. Wonderful location relatively close to the beach, Duvall, and Mallory Streets. Most everything was within walking distance (but bring comfortable shoes). Only thing we needed at The Plantation was food and some toiletries. Having a full kitchen and grill made it inexpensive to eat. We only ate out 2 times the whole week we were there. I totally recommend The Plantation and the owner was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. 5 stars in my book!!!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Metty Key West home was absolutely perfect for our Key West vacation. We loved the Annex location and the home was more than we expected. Both beautiful and comfortable. Very spacious and equipped with everything we needed to live like a local including dining out and staying home and cooking out on the grill. Close to Fort Zachary beach, Duval street and a beautiful neighborhood for walking and people watching. We have been to Key West numerous times and the Metty home is by far our favorite. Will definitely return.

We cannot thank Al & Carol enough for sharing their amazing rental property! The location cannot be beat! Quiet but then only 2 block to the action! The condo had everything you could imagine and more. Spotless when we arrived and so well maintained. Beds were comfortable and the balcony's so relaxing. So appreciated the water shoes. We wore them to the beach! Great pool and lush surroundings. We went with another couple and rented the 4 sear electric car from A&M rentals. They were amazing. They pick you up and take you back to the airport! We went on a 90 minute 28 mile jet ski tour through Fury. They were so professional and informative about the island. Key West was clean and all the service workers were so pleasant. Can't wait to go again!!!!!

Family Vacation & Wedding in Key West

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great week in Key West staying at The Plantation in Truman Annex.We were in town for my niece's wedding & several different family members & other guest chose to rent homes in Truman Annex instead of staying in hotels. We were thrilled with the home we rented from Al. It was perfect for our family - which included my husband & I, our 2 adult children, our daughter -in- law & 2 small granddaughters. The upstairs bedrooms were spacious enough that we could put a crib in each room. The location was fabulous ! You could walk to everything.Everyone in our family was pleased with our accomadations, the neighborhood was quiet & secure. Al was very nice & so accommodating .

Great week at The Plantation in Truman Annex, Key West

  • 5 of 5

My three boys, ages 27, 23 and 23, enjoyed a great week with me in Key West. Key West Al could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The property was nicer than we anticipated, and we had high expectations given the other reviews we had read, which played a big part in us renting his place. The property was convenient to Duval Street, and we easily walked to the bars and restaurants. Even though we were close to the action, the property was private, and gated. Al offered suggestions and his own personal reviews, which were accurate and appropriate. The townhouse was well suited for the four of us, well decorated and convenient. The unit was clean, and the beds were comfortable. We are soccer fans, and enjoyed the living room and big screen TV. We prepared three of our evening meals there, using the gas grill in the backyard for cooking, and the kitchen was well equipped and practical. The fenced back yard was private and comfortable, and we ate some of our meals at the table on the outdoor patio. It was a great week!
