Clean, comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a perfect fit for 2 couples because each has their own bedroom/bathroom suite and there is ample space in the kitchen/living room. Truman Annex, which is a gated community, offers a quiet and uncrowded community that is blocks from all the action on Duval St, Mallory Square, and the Marina district. (we parked our car in the allotted space and rode our bikes, and the 2 provided, everywhere) Communication was easy and any questions we had were answered immediately.

What a wonderful place from which to enjoy Key West!

Its location in the Annex is ideal. Virtually everything that we wanted to see was within an easy 15-20 minute walk. The provided bicycles were more than sufficient to transport us anywhere on the island. The Truman Annex proved to be quiet, peaceful and secure... an ideal oasis at the end of the day. The quiet also lent itself to sleeping in on those mornings we decided to have a lazy start to the day. Sitting on the front porch, be it with a cup of coffee in the morning or with a glass of wine the evening, proved to be a most enjoyable activity.

We shared the property with another couple and found it very well suited to our needs. The kitchen was well appointed, providing everything we needed on those nights when we chose to stay in and cook. The having the bedrooms on separate floors provided a welcomed sense of privacy. All the furnishings proved to be very comforable.

We found it was very easy to work with BJ. She communicated well very, especially after the 2017 hurricane when we were all worried about the condition of Key West and the property (it turned out that there was nothing for us to worry about...).

BJ - thank you for sharing your property with us and we look forward to our next visit to Key West.
