About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This condo overlooks Truman Annex's lush landscaping & Shipyard pool. If you were any closer to the garden, you would have to be a plant. Any closer to the pool, you would get splashed. You are a two minute walk to world famous Duval Street. A short walk or bike ride to one of the best beaches on the island. You are a moments walk from Mallory Square where sunset is celebrated every day with world class street theater. The condo is outfitted with a washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, pots & pans, towels & linens, central air conditioning, off street parking pool and beach access.

A unique feature of this property is bicycles! You don't have to rent. Key West is only two miles by four miles, so nothing is very far away. Fly into the Key West airport and take a cab to Truman Annex You have bicycle transportation throughout your vacation. Big baskets on the bikes will make shopping easy too! The kitchen has a Blender, margarita glasses and salt.

The bedroom has a queen bed. Gorgeous decor includes new Ethan Allen furniture, flat screen TV, VCR, CD player. New barefoot, sock and slipper friendly carpet. Leave shoes at the entry way before you come up the pristine carpeted stairs.


This condo, adjacent to the gorgeous Truman Annex Shipyard Pool has lush landscaping and an ocean peek. Located on the second floor up a short flight of carpeted stairs.


We bought this condo in April 2010 after falling in love with Key West and Truman Annex more than twenty years ago. It is a joy to share this condo with both newbies to Key West and to seasoned veterans like us who have learned to love the island more with each visit.

Why Susan Mitchell chose Key West

We love Truman Annex! This condo is unique because there is a peek at the ocean and if you were any closer to the pool you would be swimming laps!

What makes this condo unique

We LOVE riding our bicycles all over Key West and then sitting on the balcony, swimming in the pool or ocean at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and Beach.

This was our 1st trip to Key West, and it certainly will not be our last!! Staying in this condo was the best!! Lovely accommodations and perfect location for everything!! Loved having the bikes, as we used them morning, noon, and night! Beach chairs, beach bag, and cooler were perfect for our trips to the beach! Susan, you have thought of everything to make one's stay in Key West perfect!! Susan was available for questions we had and always got right back to us. The bed was so comfortable, and having the washer and dryer was so convenient! We thought we would use the kitchen, but only used the coffee maker, as there are so many amazing restaurants, that we wanted to try them all!! Needless to say we need to return to finish!! Loved the happy hours and being able to walk up to the Green Parrot, which makes the BEST mojitos on the island!! Again, thanks for sharing your beautiful condo with us, and we look forward to returning to it soon!! Oh, and the pool was lovely and refreshing, even when the temps were 100 degrees!! Couldn't have been any closer either!! Now we know why they call it PARADISE!!

Brucies Ocean Peak

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great week staying at Brucies Ocean Peak. However, I would change the name of the condo (Sorry Brucie) to Susans Tree House. We spent a lot of time on the deck which overlooked dense tropical foliage and it was like living in a tree house. Susan , when stocking the condo thought of everything. There was not a thing that when we needed it, was not there. It is a very comfortable condo and near the pool which I used everyday. The condo is a short hop, skip and jump to some of the finest dining establishments (Bagetelle, Martins, La Tratorria) in Key West. Oh, I forgot the Hard Rock Cafe which is probably the most unique Hard Rock Cafe in the system. It is located in a mansion. You are able to walk everywhere. from the condo. For a couple, this is the place to stay in Key West. Susan Mitchell got it right with this condo.

This condo is perfect for the couple on the go. Great location, between Duval and the water.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful, quiet, extremely clean and well kept, and located perfectly between Duval and the ocean. It's just far enough off of Duval to be quiet, but close enough to everything to walk.

There was never a morning that we didn't see at least 1-2 people providing upkeep or cleaning on the property. The pool was great, very clean, and very quiet/relaxing. My only wish was that the pool had later hours (closed at dusk). A lot of wildlife to view on the property also made it interesting and pretty. The condo-provided bikes were a very nice touch!!! Lights (front and back) are needed for biking at night.

Prior to our visit, Susan was awesome, with suggestions and advice on activities, restaurants, travel info etc. We did most everything she suggested and her advice was spot-on.

There are many places to stay in Key West, and we believe we chose very well this time, especially for our travel dollar. We traveled with friends that stayed in a B&B, and while it was nice, they said they'd stay in the condo we rented the next time they come down. We will definitely choose this condo when we go back to Key West!!
