Overview

Truman Annex Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Mike 305- 30 4- 2694--- the best way to reserve this home is to call. We stick to a Saturday check in during the in season months.

Greetings from Paradise, where the temperature is 82 degrees, water temperature 80, and the wind SE at 10, just enough breeze to blow sand in my margarita.

'Margarita Villas' are located in historic Old Town in a beautiful, very private gated compound that has won awards as the best development in Florida. (And yes it does have a blender).

It’s just off Duval Street, with its bustling shops and nightlife; yet quiet and private. Fort Zachary Taylor on the south side of the property has one of our most picturesque beaches located among the tall whispering pines of the uplands; the view of the reef and the turquoise waters is magnificent.

The heated pool is conveniently located nearby so you are never far from a refreshing dip or just 'conching out' in the sun.

There are two bedrooms and two baths; the master bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed, the other, two twins. French doors in the living room open onto the garden deck for outdoor dining or to catch the tropical breezes. Outdoor porch furniture and a gas barbecue are available for cooking your catch or grilling up a casual meal.

The kitchen is completely equipped (including the mandatory BLENDER).

Fully air-conditioned, all rooms have tropical ceiling fans and all linens are provided. There is off street parking for one car.

For more detailed information, call us today. 305-304-2694

About Mike Wernicoff

My name is Michael Wernicoff. I grew up in Ocean City, NJ windsurfing the beaches and sailing the back bays. In 1977, when I was 10 years old, we loaded up our car and with our Hobie Cat sailboat in tow; we set off for our first family trip to the Florida Keys.

The warm breeze and the turquoise waters brought us back every school vacation. First, we rented a small house for a week, The next year a condo for two weeks. A few years later we bought our first home which we rented out between stays ... and Vacation Rentals in Key West was born.

After college I got a 'real job', but warm waters and balmy breezes were calling, so I set off to teach windsurfing. First, in Key West, at Smathers Beach then in the Turks and Caicos Islands, St. Lucia and Mexico. Eventually moveing back to Key West. Now we have two little girls who love the emerald waters as much as we do.

When the lovely gated community in the Truman Annex was being built, we knew that it was going to be the best rental location in town and we were right! We now have a wonderful selection of vacation homes and condos to rent, so take a look and give me a call.

I would love the opportunity to help create a great vacation experience for you and your family, and to share with you, the Key West that my family and I fell in love with when I was ten and continue to enjoy today.

'Your blender is waiting'

Thank You

Mike

The Truman Annex is the best location in town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Michael:

Our family recently stayed for a week at 290 Coconut Villa in the Truman Annex. What a great condo unit and location! This was our first time back to Key West in 30 years and what changes. The unit was perfect with two bedrooms and two baths for 4 adults (our 2 grown children came along for the first time since 2005). The location in the Shipyard of the Truman Annex was so near to Duval Street and all the sights in Old Town that we could walk or bike everywhere without needing a car. We ate out every night but one and breakfast too at great restaurants. The beach at Zachary Taylor State Park is probably the best near Old town, easily within walking or biking distance. Don't miss the Truman Little Whitehouse or Hemingway's home and the cats. One thing, if you have a car, you will need a parking place and those are hard to find unless one comes with the unit, like Coconut Villa. We will return next year!



Please give your best to your Dad, Tevis. We had a couple of nice talks!

This is a great place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for 7 nights the condo was clean and well maintained. The beds are comfy and there was plenty of towels The location is great with a pool just a short walk away out the back gate, The condo is about middle of and 2 blocks from Duval st. where you will find bars, restaurants and shopping, etc. and close to beaches and state park . Communication with the family owned renters was easy and all my questions were answered, The owner called to see if we need anything the day before arrival which was great. I would highly recommend this rental and would think that all this families rentals are as nice. We will be back soon to stay again.

A Perfect Week in Key West

  • 5 of 5

Angie and I have been coming to Key West for the last two years to enjoy the weather and and the atmosphere of an exciting city. We have flown into KW and wanted a condo located where we did not have to rent a car. Our difficulty has been finding a relaxing place to stay that is close to Duval Street, to the beautiful beach at Fort Zachary Taylor, to restaurants, shopping and also the restful side of KW.

For us, we have found the perfect place to stay. The Hemingway Cottage in the Shipyard Condos area of the historic Truman Annex met all of our needs and then some. Tevis Wernicoff provided a comfortable and exceptionally clean 2B/1B condo highlighted with Hemmingway memorabilia throughout. The ground floor condo was comfortable and included a shaded patio that we particularly enjoyed for reading and relaxing. The two sets of patio doors on to this private patio allows for a breeze that would remind you of a cottage in the tropics. While we primarily dined out, the kitchen was outfitted for cooking and dining in.

I would again emphasize how clean it was.

We have made plans to return to Key West again next year and hope to stay in the Hemingway Cottage again.

Everything was Great!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Key West for many years and have rented vacation homes on many of our trips. This trip was especially important as my daughter was getting married at Ft. Taylor State park. Everything was great ! we arrived late at night and the arrival instructions were clear and we had no problems after a long day of travel. Our condo was very clean and comfortable and quiet. We loved sitting on the deck and enjoying our morning coffee. We will be back next year for sure.

Hemingway's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Hemingway's Cottage is so nice and relaxing. Great location, easy to walk to everything. Unit was clean and the owner checked in to make sure everything was ok. Highly recommend renting bikes from Eaton Bikes, a very short walk away from this unit. We loved a new restaurant, Grunts, the lobster mac and cheese appetizer was so good. Also enjoyed the Dry Tortugas snorkel adventure on the brand new Yankee Freedom Ferry. (Make sure you bring plenty of sunscreen!) Our favorite activity was the Sunset Sail on the Jolly II Rover-the crew was fun and it was BYOB.
