Overview

About the property

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

The resilience after hurricane Irma is spectacular! Tourists are back, having a wonderful time. Key West is PARADISE once again! Our neighborhood, Duval Street and all 165 miles from Miami to Key West on US 1 are clear! That highway is a majestic masterpiece that was somehow immune to the wrath of Irma.

The main difference is the increased love from servers, bartenders and workers on the island who are embracing tourists and locals. By coming you are helping the Keys and their hardworking people recover from the evacuation.

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.

View

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.

Owners

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.

About Susan Mitchell

It is a dream come true to share this slice of paradise and help our guests LOVE Key West! We are originally from Athens, Ohio where we raised our children. Bruce is founder of The Athens NEWS. We now live in Key West to be closer to paradise and make sure our guests needs are being fulfilled.

Why Susan Mitchell chose Old Town

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.

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little 2nd floor condo, perfect for two people. We really enjoyed the large balcony overlooking the walking paths and Southard St. Nice location with everything within walking distance. Susan was a pleasure to deal with and we have already booked our next stay in April with her. Highly recommended!

Had a wonderful stay :-)

  • 5 of 5

Our week-long stay at Brucie's Ocean Peak wasn't long enough LOL!!! Seriously, though, it's in a nice location - close to Mallory Square and all the action, but far enough away to have quiet when you just want to relax by the pool. And you can't beat being two blocks away from The Green Parrot! I had the opportunity to meet Susan during our stay & she was very friendly & accommodating. She took us for a quick tour to see where her other units were located in the complex. We were very happy with our unit, especially the private deck; we enjoyed our coffee out there every morning, listening to the roosters and watching the iguanas (there were two by the pool that were over 3' long!). Having free use of the bicycles was an excellent feature - it saved us a couple hundred since we didn't have to rent. I would highly recommend staying here. We will be back!!!

Perfect as always

  • 5 of 5

Had planned to stay the month of September again. Everything in the condo was perfect as always, unfortunately the weather was not. Did evacuate for hurricane Irma, but Susan kept in contact with us throughout, which we greatly appreciated. We were also fortunate that we could go back to Brucie s just 11 days after the storm. It was such a great experience to be on the island as businesses began to re-open and to see the clean up progressing so quickly. We also got to attend several local fund raising events to help support local charities. Thanks again to Susan and Bruce for another unforgettable trip. See you next year.
